Quarterly Co. Bianca Jade / Mizzfit **SPOILERS**

Recommended Posts

Received my box today. I didn't take photos since we all saw the spoilers. The other differences are the single serving of the Super Candy (Caramel flavor) and the 15% off coupon for Lucy. Both were mentioned above. The Lucy card is a bit odd as the card itself says it's for regular priced items only, but the letter from Bianca says it's for anything (including sale items). Either way, I don't think it's something I'd use since it would mean spending more money. The Fitbook I received was the black/grey one. It looks nice, I haven't opened it yet though.

yes, I get the feeling that maybe Quarterly pushed Bianca to ship this as is. It is definitely missing something. I think I'm done with Quarterly.

Eek, I asked Bianca about the $200 comment on the twitters and apparently they had a brand pull out last minute. I feel bad :(

Ok, that would explain everything...

It was so unusual of Bianca to hint there was more items in the box and value of around $200, when it's $106. I was supriced and confused, but know I understand.

I also got my box today, everything is the same as discussed above. I wonder why advertise there would be more value (re: comment on the MSA spoiler post) before everything is cast in stone and is actually in the box. Until it is not in the box you cannot advertise it, so to say a brand decided not to be included last minute, it's not like they took the product out of the boxes.Now that Q dos not take returns, it is so easy to mislead and false advertise.

I actually did follow up my twitter conversation with Bianca via email, and specifically mentioned that now that Quarterly changed their return policy, we are all extra sensitive about wanting to pick our boxes carefully and wanted to be confident that we are getting a good value.  Bianca has been SUPER NICE and SUPER PROFESSIONAL and I feel bad for publicly calling her out.  She said that she tried to delay the box to add another brand but it was a no go...I wonder if Quarterly is working on being more consistent since people have been so unhappy with the delays, plus at $106 it's not like it's a crappy box, just not the value Bianca stated in one instagram comment like 7 weeks ago. 

 

After talking to Bianca, I can tell that she really does care what we think and tries to take in all of the feedback she gets so she can keep us happy.  It sounds like she works hard to get us stuff from companies she truly believes in.  I am actually really impressed with her now that I have talked to her a bit and will definitely stay subscribed.

I actually love this box, just a little disappointed as i had expected a little something more.  (probably lucy pulled out because there's only a coupon?).  I bought 2 extra boxes to gift because i knew that the fitbooks would be in there and i know my recipients will love it because they won't be expecting more to be in the box  that what's in there ;)

that spoiler vid pretty much had the whole box then.  my box will show up on monday, and i'm getting over not expecting anything more to be in the box, and i'm re-getting excited over the box if that makes sense.

it's just bad timing about Q updating their return policy for those that don't find their value in the box as-is

I know she was trying to get a gym bag clutch into her box too, I think the value of it was $75ish. I read a post from her that her Quarterly subscribers would love her forever if she could get it to work out. 

 

I personally still think this is a really good box, double the price of the sub as far as value goes and I do think it's well curated. The cost of the FitBook (the one item that I really wanted) at Target is $20 so everything else is basically $30. 

 

I like Bianca and I like what she's about so I'll stay subscribed. I kind of hate Quarterly now though. I really wish there was another company that was doing the same thing but better.

I feel bad for being so disappointed about the box after hearing about the conversation you had with Bianca,@lauradiniwilk. Like I mentioned, I'm still happy about the box, just disappointed it wasn't up to expectations because of what Bianca said. I think it would've been a lot better if she would've mentioned/updated about the company that pulled out. She mentioned on the 14th on MSA that there would be more spoilers and then I didn't hear anything about the box again until I received my shipment information from Quarterly. I wonder why Quarterly wouldn't work with her about shipping a bit later though.

I think I'll stay subscribed to her box as well. She's always been good at curating them, so I'll chalk it up to everything Quarterly decided to change last minute (return policy, etc).

Bianca said to Laura on Twitter, she will make it up for us in the next box and she was devastated when the brand pull out last minute. I will stay subscribed too.

The gym bag clutch might still be in the works.  I remember the post being about MIZ06, the next box.

I just got my box (I do not know what the tracking was talking about with next Wednesday O.o) and I really like it. The strawberry scrub smells delicious. <3 Were there different flavors of super candy? I got caramel and they were really good. :)

From the letter (which I actually read lmao), it says she sent the caramel kind. There are different flavors/varieties of the candies. I already ate mine and they were good. The serving size was also a lot bigger than I was expecting.

I received small/medium sized socks.

 

I'm planning to stay subscribed to Bianca's box.

I asked Bianca on instagram if she sent out any M/L so I can trade...she didn't really answer, just said that if I send her back the small ones she will send me a larger size.  It's so funny to work with her personally on stuff like this instead of quarterly...I hope she doesn't steal my socks!!!  :laughno:

With size 10 feet, I really need the ML too.  Maybe I can Facebook message her as I don't instagram.

I kind of feel bad for her. The MSA thread feels a wee smudge like a witch hunt to me. It's still over 2 x's the price of the box which is really good. I know I need to remember that sometimes the curation is more important than the "value".  if that makes sense

I also feel really bad for Bianca, but I feel like the way she has handled it so gracefully has won her a lot of loyal fans.  She turned me into a subbie for life...I feel like this incident has shown me what she is all about and I have TONS of respect for her. 

 

How do you guys think she should handle the dance box thing?  I think the suggestion to make it a special edition box is fantastic; I would buy it.  I have never tried a barre class so some kind of dvd and accessories would be fun to try.

Bianca just posted two golden tickets on her Instagram and Twitter accounts. I couldn't figure out how to save the pics to post as spoilers here (technologically challenged).

 

I signed up for her box right after the last one, which I just didn't have money for in the budget at that point. I'm keeping a close eye out for spoilers though. I wonder when we'll see them? A few more weeks?

The golden tickets are for a beyondbarre glide board and home study kit ($350 value) and a pair of onecliqueshoes with 2 heel options.  Bianca had also posted previously that she is working with Lyssefashion on this box as well. 

 

I assume this means that we will be getting some sort of barre workout trial, a coupon for onecliqueshoes, and an item from Lysse?  They have an "active" section on their website; stuff is priced similar to Lucy or Lululemon (and is just as cute).  I don't really see anything that isn't size specific or in the right price range for this box though, so maybe a coupon there too.

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!
