Quarterly Co. Arianna Huffington **SPOILERS**

Recommended Posts

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.

I tried. it was ignored. anyone else?

yeah, I still want to support her - and her box. Afraid if we all wait for the best of quarterly reviews, it will be cut too. i have liked each of her boxes. they really come from her.

You are pulling at my heartstrings here because that has always been my concern with Nina.  I think since this box is a nice to have vs. a must have for me, I will almost be relieved if it's cancelled because I'll be spending less $$ without that sense of Fear of Missing Out.  I do love her boxes though....grrr....

Totally.  Arianna just really seems to focus on empowerment, learning to relax and focus, and it really seems like the box reflects her thinking.  I do hope she continues to share her wonderful thoughts and brands to help achieve those missions.   For her box, I am happy to pay full price (and she does seem to get extra special items included).  It's given me a new insight on her as a person.

Does anyone know what's up with this box?  I resubbed in October because it had the box listed near the top of the curators who were supposed to be shipping soon.  Now I see that Arianna has been moved down with Bianca Jade and Nina Garcia, both boxes I received recently.  I haven't been billed or received a shipping notice yet.

Honestly, after I received Nina's $100 box (and felt embarrassed that I paid that plus shipping for items that I already have but in way better styles/quality of items), I cancelled all my quarterly boxes.  I am such a fan of Arianna has been putting out, but I think Quarterly is behind these boxes more than the curators and just afraid of giving them my money anymore.  That box was such a let down - after waiting so long for it to arrive.  Sorry - wish I could offer insights.

HA!  But you're the main reason I resubbed! 

 

Since I'm guessing I'm the last man standing on this one, I'll be sure to post pics if it ever actually arrives.

I know. :/  But that Nina box really got to me!  what adult didnt already have literally every thing in that box already (and certainly in nicer quality)?! I figured this time around I would be able to change my mind before she ships (after I chill out a bit) or at most it will be available in the "best of" this time around since so many likely cancelled last min. ... sorry for bailing.

TRUST ME, I feel ya on the Nina box.  How disappointing.  This will definitely be in the best of seeing as how the last two stuck around long enough to be discounted 50%.  I just truly don't understand this company.  And yet I keep coming back.

Quarterly just replied to my tweet...this box is on pause until the new year.  Which I'm fine with, this one is great but it's not something I need on a quarterly basis.

Huh, that's weird...I logged into my account and she's not there anymore even though I resubscribed a few weeks ago.  Checked my emails and there is no "hey, sorry but no more Arianna boxes" email. 

 

Apparently Arianna announced she was done forever ago (like right after her last box) so the lack of communication and all of the misinformation quarterly put out is insane.

    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
