Quarterly Co. Arianna Huffington **SPOILERS**

Recommended Posts

I got my box today.  My up is yellow!  I actually really like the bracelet despite the square nature.  It is small and I like that.  The pillow case I got was cream.  Not fond of polyester and imagined that it might be embroidered not stamped on.  Was hoping for cotton or silk.  Come on Arianna!  It will either go up for trade or go to my daughter.  I thought this quarter was a much better curation and value than last month and will stay subscribed for a little while longer.

Just got an email with this item being mentioned as the spoiler for the next box.

The 2nd Spoiler for the ARI04 box is a Lifetime Membership to Thrive Market.  I've signed up for the box but would really like to know if anyone's tried this site.  I probably go to Whole Foods once a month but it's an hour away from my house.  Not at all convenient.  

 

I'm also a bit concerned that the "Lifetime" will end up being a "One Year" membership since the annual membership is the only one offered on their website.

 

Thoughts?

Did you see the "mega golden ticket" spoiler too?  24 subscribers will win a complete sensecore + sony package (over $1300 value).  It includes sensors that provide medical grade electrocardiogram, true respiration, body temperature, and pod-free indoors-outdoors kinetics, a compression garment to hold the sensors, one year access to the sensecore software, a water resistant sony moble phone and watch with the sensecore mobile app.

 

I wonder how many people are still subscribed to the box...it would be amazing to win. 

 

I am not familiar with Thrive Market and you have to log in to have access to the website so I can't tell if it's a good spoiler or not. 

 

UGH, I am so on the fence with this box.  I KNOW that the right thing to do is to cancel but I just can't seem to make myself do it.  Quarterly dangles the mega golden ticket and lifetime membership in front of me, and I play right into their hands.

These spoilers do make this box more interesting. I'm not sure about Thrive market though. I checked it out before and made an account but haven't placed an order yet. I'm just not sure I would get enough use out of it. I can get most of natural foods from Trader Joes and my local target has a lot of organic options now. Ordering organic online isn't crucial for me because I have access to it locally with reasonable pricing. It's a great idea for people who don't live near organic/natural food markets or stores. The "mega golden ticket" sounds interesting though.

After the CFDA horrendous box, I'm not feeling very lucky.  I'll pass on the Ariana box.

Mine came - please don't look if you want to be surprised (don't know how to do spoilers on my computer on this website - can only hide text). The site keeps cropping out the beads. :/

I'm still waiting for mine, but I must say, I find this disappointIng. For $100? Perhaps I don't understand the valuation but still.... also, I heard this will be Arianna's last box. Has anyone else heard this?

Ohhh, I will be relieved if it is because I can't make myself quit her, but I won't be sad if it's not available anymore. Where did you hear this?

I actually read this on another well-known blog by a very solid contributor (who is also on here) she mentioned that she had read it, but couldn't recall from where. I trust this persons feedback but I haven't seen it myself, so I was wondering if anyone else had. This box is meh. So disappointed for $100. That bether be some good tea. :)

I will probably be a lot more excited about the thrive membership once I can actually spend some time on the website to see what they have to offer.  But we just had a local organic market open up in my neighborhood, AND it was announced that we will be getting a whole foods right down the street in 2017.

Whole Foods is pretty expensive. I havent spent a lot of time of the site yet but was excited by reviews of people that compared it to their local and WF options.

I used my $25 gift card to stock up on almond butter and to buy a ton of delicious snacks.  Had to get my order to $50 because I couldn't pass on the free shipping though - it's like getting 3 more snacks free! 

 

Do you guys know if anyone has successfully complained that this was clearly promoted as a lifetime membership when it's really only a ten year membership?  I mean, who knows what is going to happen to Thrive over the next 10 years, but I'm planning on living past 45 and if Thrive is still there, I want my lifetime membership to continue as promised.  But then I think about how it was $600 value in a $100 box and wonder if I'm just being an a-hole.  But then I think about how the reason I didn't cancel was largely the allure of the LIFETIME membership.  ARGH.

Is anyone else pretty underwhelmed by Thrive so far? 

 

I can't figure out if it's just because the product selection is lacking for me or if I'm just spoiled by Google Express but I'm just luke warm on the service so far. The prices for the products that they currently have is great but they don't carry a lot of my go-to products like So Delicious Coconut Milk or Quest Bars or my vitamins...all things that I rely on Whole Foods for (and since I buy from Whole Foods with Google Express I get all of my products within 24 hours, which sure beats free UPS ground shipping.) 

 

But I really like the drink powder and the mala beads are some of the prettier ones I have. My bath salts are all stuck together but they do smell pretty fabulous.

This bothers me! I know I read somewhere that ARI05 was to be the last box, but I can't find it anywhere. Another poster on the same blog thought it was ARI04. I do hope AH continues with the box.

 

Quarterly is different this year. You used to be able to find good information on their twitter. Not anymore.

    • Our skin is a very sensitive organ of the body. Every day it goes through environment changes, temperature fluctuations, pollution, and dirt. While tackling with all of them, it has a great responsibility to secrete oils and sweat to protect itself from the outside world and maintain the body temperature. Basically, at the end of the day it not only gets exhausted, but goes into a dire need of nutrients to replenish its energy. A chemical product may give your skin instant glow, but it becomes a crutch. It makes our skin dependent upon chemical based products so much that if the product is not used, the skin starts falling into the worst conditions like dryness, acne, excess oils etc. Hence, plant based skin care brands are emerging to bring you a better option that will replenish all the natural oils and nutrients of your skin and make it naturally healthy. The natural and plant-based skin care products do not have harmful toxins that your body might intake through the epidermis’ habit of absorbing whatever is applied on it. A product like – the rejuvenator dry oil emulsion is made only of natural ingredients like apple stem cell, natural oils and herbs. After a long day, they provide your skin hydration, phytonutrients, and boost cell protection and collagen. Intake of these products through the skin is completely safe because they share the same biological chemistry as our bodies and blend in.

    • I suppose it’s an indication of little I used to think about sleep that it never occurred to me my sleeping position was in anyway abnormal. I fall asleep on my right hand side then often sleep on my stomach, head to one side if I wake up during the night. Turns out only about 7% of the population do this.   But is there a ‘best side’ to sleep on? The jury seems to be out but there are pros and cons to each sleeping position   If you sleep on your back (which I rarely do) it’s apparently good for your spine and preventing acid reflux but you are more likely to snore. On the other hand it may “maintain perky breasts” according to this article on the CNN website. (Probably not if you’ve had a couple of kids, I’d suggest)   Sleeping on your side – right or left – apparently makes it easier to breathe and helps to avoid heartburn and acid reflux. It also tends to be the most comfortable position if you’re pregnant, especially with a body pillow. However curling up in a foetal position is not good for your neck or spine.   Some experts say you’re better to sleep on your right hand side if you have a cardiac condition as it puts less stress on the heart. On the other hand sleeping on your left may be better for your liver and kidneys.   Sleeping on your front can put strain on your neck though this can be alleviated if you only have one or no pillows. (According to the Better Sleep Council this position makes me brash, outgoing, and very uncomfortable with criticism!)   On the other hand a recent survey came up with the finding that sleeping on the left of the bed (which I invariably do) makes you more cheerful and positive – but not as financially well off as those who sleep on the right. According to the ... er... Daily Mail.   In the absence of any consensus it seems to me that there’s no reason to change your sleeping position if you sleep well or haven’t been advised to alter it by your doctor. On the other hand if you sleep badly – or snore loudly – it could be worth trying to make a change.    So what are you – a side, a back or a stomach sleeper and have you ever managed to change the way you sleep? Read more information about the best mattress for sleeping. Good luck!
