Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else gotten their Rosario Dawson Quarterly box for December? 

The 'advent calendar' given a week before Christmas.

 

I feel like I just got taken. This is a box of… trash mostly. I only like a few items ( I won't name them so I don't spoil it for people )

 

And they promised something from Disney. That is not there. 

 

I am. so. p.o'd.

Jennifer,  There is a spoiler pick on instagram at #18902 and on the quarterly box thread there is a list of all the items.

I want to see a picture of this one! Wasn't it supposed to have something like 30 items?

2 items I am happy about! A few things worth keeping, then most of the rest will go in the trash. Not the box I was expecting but l don't plan to send it back. That one item is worth the $50 to me.

 

Edited to add: I take back trashing most of the items, i need this box before Christmas for stocking stuffers and extras. Now to stalk the delivery truck.

Wow, that actually looks pretty great to me?! Although given the theme and how long it took to ship, I can see why people would be upset about this coming so late. I liked this enough that I might actually try to get a restock of it...

My issue is mainly the Advent thing. If it had actually come before December I could understand the throw-away items more.  I actually got a chunk of thread. lol 

 

The couple Items I do like are worth the 50.00 yes.. I don't plan to send it back. But there is a lot of 25 cent machine items in there.

 

I also didn't feel like this was anything personalized or that Rosario had anything to do with this box at all.

 

And I think I am just so sick of getting water bottles. Every single box seems to send a water bottle. I prob have about 25 by now.

 

This was my first quarterly box so I'm not really sure what I was expecting.. but I didn't expect to be throwing things in the garbage. I may be at the point now where I've subscribed to so many boxes in the last 2 years that I am running out of things to get that I am happy with. I already have almost everything they sent in this box so it's not as fun anymore…  Maybe I need a sub box break!

Could have done without the filler stuff, but ... the two big items, just amazing. The big name brand is something I never really thought I'd see in a sub box, especially one at this price. I had no idea that Quarterly curators even had access to brands like that!

That is true. I think I jumped the gun on getting ticked about it so quick. I like more items in it than I initially thought I would. It's growing on me for sure..  

 

But I wish they had gotten it to us in time to use it as an advent  :) All that little junk would've made sense if it had gotten there in time. But also it should have been wrapped cause the point of an advent is to be surprised. Well whatever.. I think they aimed too high on this one.

Well my box just came a day earlier than FedEx predicted so I am happy. For the most part I am happy with this. All the filler stuff, I will probably toss, but what it came in I will definitely use. Love the item from C. I am happy about the WB as I haven't gotten one of those yet. I am also happy to try the stuff from the Honest Company. Considering I have returned 2 of my other Quarterly boxes this month, I am glad I get to keep one.

Also moved this thread to the appropriate location (Quarterly Co subforum).

I felt sad about missing this one, so I asked if there were any more available or if it would be on BoQ:

 

 

 

Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately we do not have any to buy at this time! However, I'd recommend checking back in after the holidays we we do expect to have some more in stock.

I personally think this box was amazing and worth well above the $50 paid.  I had so much fun opening it and counting my 31 items to make sure I didn't miss anything.

I got my box today and did a quick look before I went to work. I honestly love it, well worth the 50 just for the one item which I planned on buying anyway.

 

 

Oh anyone else get a UA headband?

So I noticed the following note on Quarterly's site regarding Rosario's next box #18903:

 

"MY NEXT PACKAGE SHIPS IN JANUARY OF 2015. Stay tuned for the Love Box, coming your way at the top of 2015!"

 

As of last week it said it was shipping in February, now it appears to have been moved up to January. Do you guys think we'll get the next box so soon?

No.  I'm counting on it shipping in March. It is Quarterly after all.  Have they ever met a shipping schedule?

I loved this box!  I loved the whole advent idea, too.  I do think that's what Rosario was going for and I bet she was disappointed it shipped late.

 

If the tote is from her studio 189, it's ridiculously expensive.  And I do mean ridiculous.  As in likely no one with an eye on their pocketbook would ever buy it.

 

Love the Coach wallet, did everyone get black?

 

I got a little nostalgic over some of the filler. My grandma used to always put chocolate coins in our stocking and silly noisemakers.  Those items have been repurposed into stocking suffers for my niece and nephew.

 

It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed every bit of it.  Sure, she didn't need to put those little things in.  But she did and I'm glad :)

 

I got under Armour hair ties,  not hair bands.   Tags still on them for 9.99.  

 

This box was worth it!

Ugh. My box is stuck somewhere in WY and the tracking hasn't updated since Sunday. So much for expedited shipping/delivery before Christmas. <_<

It showed up in Roseville, CA today... so thankfully it's not lost. But I'm definitely not getting it until Friday at the earliest.

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
