My boxes have gone GOLDEN! Well...a select few of them have, which means amazing prizes for some very lucky ladies. Catch up with me as I unbox the "Clean Slate" #MIZ06 box and reveal what's in store for #MIZ07. Watch the video I made for you above or click the link below:
How 'bout dem balloons? Have you ever tried hailing a cab with 40 balloons? Not easy! But I really enjoyed filming with them to unbox my Clean Slate box. Did you get it? I hope it renewed your routine! I'm still doing my Booya Fitness workouts. ARE YOU? I love this online membership on days when it's pouring rain and I just want to stay at home. Speaking of workouts, you guys are in for quite a treat with the next box. Not only is it packed to the gills, but I put a workout schedule together for you, too.
Each box is so different and keeps me on my toes! I want to be the best fitness trends curator possible for you. Thank you so much for all your emails, suggestions and requests. I know a lot of you felt the last box was a little "light" so I made sure to make the next one HEAVY. You'll see what I mean when you get it :)
Many of you have asked me what it's like being a curator and what kind of work goes into making the boxes. Well, it's actually A LOT of work! But I love every second of it. I spend the 1st month of every 3-months in between box shipments brainstorming themes and putting together product bundles.
I closely watch and forecast trends in the health/wellness/fitness industry during this time. Then, I pick my favorite products and brands to work with based on their innovation and health benefits. I choose products I love and can't live without, as well as ones I believe will enhance your workout and overall wellbeing. Fitbook is a great example. I know the founder and have followed her success in her mission to create the ultimate journaling experience. Fitbook turns something tedious into a motivational activity that lets you be your own coach. I love this kind of ingenuity.go
Once I've got my final selection of products mapped out, my Quarterly Co. team begins reaching out to the corrresponding brands and companies. There's ALWAYS a lot of back and forth, and TONS of emails! Some deals go through. Some don't :(
I've got a lot of subscribers now, and sometimes larger orders are hard for companies to fill by our deadlines. I sure love problem solving though--something you definitely need for the job. Sarah, my creative planner that I work closely with at Quarterly, is a godsend. She helps me jump hurdles when they get in the way and turn my Style Up 2 Shape Up vision into something real and 4-cornered.
The best part is getting to know all of you and reading your comments on subscription box junkie forums. I never knew these communities existed before signing on as a Quarterly curator, and now I'm totally addicted! I subscribe to a few boxes myself, so I can proudly say I've been a player on both sides of the box industry. HelloFresh is my latest life-changing subscription. I'm learning how to be a good cook without having to grocery shop, which means MORE TIME WORKING ON QUARTERLY BOXES! Use my HelloFresh promo code (BELKQ6) to get $40 off your 1st box or CLICK HERE.
Keep sending your questions my way! Here are a few hints for #MIZ07.
I'm not doing an entire reveal like I used to with past boxes. Surprises are worth the wait...and silence is GOLDEN. Good luck winning those golden tickets! xoxo, Bianca Jade
