Subscriptionista.com is a blog that was created for you (you are totally worth it) to celebrate the fun of getting surprises in the mail, and for taking the time to laugh at things in general. It is often a silly place where everyone is encouraged to comment. We are a refuge from sites that take things too seriously, and a place to get quirky. Just let your weird hang out, we like it!
Subscriptionista loves giving her opinion on anything and everything, whether or not she knows much about the subject. She actually believes people care about her opinions which makes her feel as awesome as her parents assure her she is. She has saved 1,000 puppies from reading inappropriate books, helped 20 toddlers understand existential subtext, and works out every day often lifting her apartment building over her head. All true stories she just made up! When she dies she imagines she will be buried in a mausoleum made up of subscription boxes and fan mail. Oh and cat hair. Lots and lots of cat hair.
Our Writers/Crafters Of the Words (In Order Of Longest Time Putting Up With My Crap):
Pnut doesn’t turn in her About’s on time to be posted because she is a rock star and doesn’t play by the rules. She has children, a husband, and sexy good looks. The trifecta for blogging anonymously on the internet. She likes subscriptions that are “good,” and doesn’t like things that are “bad.” So, it is pretty tough to win an argument against her! When she is not super busy being a great mom, she is making everyone giggle with her spirited reviews. She also has a keen understanding of every subscription box conspiracy theory there is!
Onderria started her box love with Birchbox, then Ipsy, and started sampling a few months here and there of many other boxes. She loves artistic encouragement, jewelry, books, things to help keep warm, and will not pass up cookies or sweets. While her current favorite boxes are OwlCrate and We Make Collective, her kitty will sit in any box.
Her gateway boxes were Birchbox and Ipsy and then she moved on to the hard stuff known as lifestyle boxes! These days her addiction is leaning more to the boxes that provide an experience such as Hamptons Lane and Darby Smart. She lives on Maui where the sub box junkies have to suffer increased shipping fees and from something called ground shipping (which means sometimes you wait for a box for 4-5 weeks as it takes a long scenic boat ride over the Pacific!).
Former Writers/In Our Hearts Forever:
SubBella discovered the world of subscription boxes when searching for children educational subscriptions. Her favorite boxes are natural and eco-friendly beauty and lifestyle boxes. She enjoys all types of boxes. She is a wife and a mother to two boys who also enjoy their own subscription boxes. Her dogs and cats are impatiently waiting for their mommy to order them pet boxes.
