Rachel Posted a spoiler on her the working wardrobe site. It's vague but she does say that there will be 4 or 5 items and that just one of the items will be more than the cost of the box! 5 winners will receive the box worth more than $300!

Oh man, I just read that post and saw the photo of the size of the box... now I'm intrigued.

I just received my Hitha on the Go box! It is perfectly timed since I'm leaving on a week-long trip this Friday. Both of the items are perfect! I was very pleased - not something I already owned and I had just been thinking about ...

 

 

How I always have to stuff my shoes into some ugly plastic bag so they won't mess up all of my clothes. Love love love the shoe bag! (My print is totally different from what's on the site.) And the foot scrubbing sponge looks quite nice for throwing into the suitcase as well. This is what I appreciate about Quarterly; I get introduced to convenient solutions to common problems. I'm very pleased.

 

 

It was a win for me! I've totally been on the other side of the equation (being disappointed with a Quarterly box) though so I empathize! I always see it as trying to find the curator whose personality/interests mesh best with yours.

I'm disappointed, though I won't see my Hitha On The Go box till next week.

I have multiple shoe bags I use for gym, and most of them come free. I wouldn't spend $64 on a shoe bag seriously... The other item is not even packing related. I use babyfoot masks to maintain my feet instead of scrubbing, so it will be on my ebay list soon. The coupon & free guide? Come on...

I'm also subscribed to Rachel's box. Let's see if hers is better

So I just looked on Quarterly's site and the Rachel Yeoman description mentions her favorite beauty products? Huh? Am I confusing this sub with another? I thought it was about the Working Women's Wardrobe and not beauty products? Don't get me wrong, I love beauty products but I already get a lot of boxes....

Thanks @saffrya! I actually signed up for her newsletter bc it mentioned her "readers" (five of you) will get a box worth $300+". I figured I'd better sign up to have a chance to win. And yes, there'd better be at least one MUTer in there!! :)

I'm really tempted to get the new GQ box. At $100 I have really high hopes for this box. But I imagine since GQ is such a big name in Men's Fashion, they might be able to procure some really awesome stuff like Nina Garcia. I love Men's Fashion and I used to read a lot of GQ and I like their taste in fashion and lifestyle. But man...$100 is a lot, and I'm already getting the Nina Garcia box.

This is what I found from Page A Day on the 1000 Places box.... http://www.pageaday.com/blog/1000-places-quarterly not sure what they're trying to say is in the box.... It's a little late for a calendar...

The one they link to is a 2015 calendar, but... I don't really want that yet? It's not even useable for quite some time.

 

I signed up for 1000 places and Rachel Yeomans. Nervous.

I didn't even notice it linked to 2015! This is why I was hoping for another spoiler... Not too excited about a calendar! =/

Long ago, I mentioned that I thought a calendar would be in there.  Just not so sure.  

 

On another note, Hitha's box came.  In color Rio.  Not my style. As I mentioned, I bought the box because she said it was $100 of products (figuring there would be $35+ more after I guessed the Hudson + Bleeker bag).  Now I am stuck w/ a bag that I don't like in terms of design plus pumice (and coupon I can't use since I already get their shoes (it's for new customers only) and a packing list that's available online). Would prefer to spend the extra $13 and pay for a color I will like by going into the store.  Not complaining per se, but they should back up their values that they promote since people buy based upon expectations.

I received the Rio print as well and was disappointed. I actually tried to pack this in my 21" suitcase this week and not only was it super bulky but there is no way to get three pairs of shoes in there. Unless one or two pairs are flat sandals, whichI don't wear. It barely fit two pairs. (Handy tip - use heavy duty freezer bags. They don't break and can be repurposed)

 

I'll repurpose the bag of course but as for the pattrn, it reminds of the early 80s. The gold and turquoise patterns were quite pretty though.

 

I feel badly for anyone who chose this box over another. I bought this and 1000 Places but I'd be sad if I got this instead of Nina G. On the fence about canceling for box 2. Perhaps that will be better. Side note - just picked up some great Travelon accessories at Marshall's; shampoo, Soap and detergent sheets and a few other things.

 

Some people like the box so I'm glad they will benefit and use the bag and stone etc. it may actually make a great makeup bag for me....

I'm not even sure I will repurpose it. The color is a little too awful, in my opinion.  :/  What are these palms???

The Hudson + Bleeker bag in gold & white (pictured on the quarterly.co website) looks really expensive, but the other color combo doesn't sound nearly as nice...

 

I took it that the Page a Day post was just an attempt to promote sales of the box to people who are already possibly interested in similar products, not  that it a calendar would be included, however I suppose it might... I was considering getting that box, but I don't intend to travel personally to Paris any time soon and it's not some place I'd be going for work. Plus you can get 1000 Places calendars after New Year's pretty heavily discounted (my local Barnes & Noble had quite a few of them when the 2014 calendars hit 75% off). I am definitely curious to see what might be included though!

    • Cleansers Just like you wash your hair and body, it’s important to use a cleanser (made just for your face) to wash your skin. Rabach recommends cleansing twice daily. “Cleansing helps remove dead skin, reduce oils in acne prone skin, remove buildup of bacteria and yeast that live on the skin, remove pollutants that collect on the skin during the day, and remove all makeup, so pores do not get clogged.” she says. We think that’s motivation enough.   Toner First things first: if you want to keep your routine quick, skip this step! If not, we like a toner to: 1. truly make sure the skin's got a perfectly clean canvas post-cleansing and 2. either add hydration or exfoliation to our routine. Dr. Rabach recommends making sure your toner is oil-free.   Serum Serums are one of the best ways to address your personal skin concerns. "A VIta a to Zee Vitamin C serum is a skincare product designed to deliver a high concentration of a specific active ingredient to the skin," dermatologist Dr. Zeichner says, adding that they're usually designed to "perform a single job, whether that is to hydrate, protect, brighten, calm, or even the skin." It's important to make sure you're choosing a serum that's actually right for you. One thing dermatologists agree on is using an antioxidant serum (like Vitamin C) in the morning.  
    • i guess all the products of FACES CANADA are just so good. i have been using it for like 6 years now and it is up to date till now. i would surely recommend you to use this..
    • I was just going to recommend ELF Camo Concealer! until I read your post. I actually used it recently in my video.  but yes ELF Camo concealer is great. It's full coverage, a little on the thicker side but blends amazingly and affordable too.
