Jason Kottke Quarterly Company Review

Image
Hey Everybody!

So I just got my Quarterly Company box for Jason Kottke and I'm not quite sure what to think of it. I had never heard of Jason Kottke before but I just had to know what he would send out. "Jason Kottke is a blogger and developer living in NYC. As editor of kottke.org for the last 14+ years, he’s scoured nearly every corner of the web for juicy links and things for people to read. Jason is also hard at work on Stellar, a web app for tracking and discovering your favorite things online."
For those of you who are not familiar with with Quarterly Co., it is a service that allows you to pick out who decides on the products that you receive each quarter. Last time, I received the box from Joel Johnson. Click here to see Joel Johnson's box. There are a lot of contributors to choose from and they all have their own style. I'd be surprised if you didn't find a contributor that  you didn't like! Click here to see all of the available contributors.

Thursday Thoughts

I've decided that I wanted to turn my blog into something a little bit more personal, while still keeping my Subscription Box reviews. So I decided to do my very first link-up with Jen over at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom!



-I am so ready for my summer class to be over already. It's only a 3 week class but it's a 5-days a week for 3 hours kind of class. Plus, it's a class that's completely in Spanish. For those of you who don't know this (which is probably none of you) Spanish is one of my majors. I am taking the class at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln but it isn't the regular college I go to. I am taking it here in Lincoln because it was the only place that I could go since my home-college didn't offer the class during the summer session. Anyways, to put it shortly I am learning all about Spain in the Spanish language (my summer sounds so fun). But seriously, I can't wait to be done with this class so that I can spend sunny afternoons lounging by …

Birchbox April 2013 Review

Image
Hey Everybody!


I just changed up the layout to my blog and I hope that you all like it :) I put a little poll on the left side of my blog. So if you guys could let me know what you think I'd be so happy! Also, I made a Facebook page for my blog, the link is on the side at the top. So if you want to like it then I'd be super happy! Thanks everybody :)


So I am probably the slowest Blogger ever, but I am finally catching up with all of my subscription boxes from last month. I will catch up though, I promise! More than likely I'll be all caught up this week, maybe early next week :) Anyways, I got my very first Birchbox! Most people get hooked on subscription boxes through their first Birchbox, I've noticed. I was a little bit weird that way though and didn't get a Birchbox until after I was hooked onto subscription boxes. For those of you who aren't familiar with Birchbox;  "Birchbox is the best way to discover new grooming, beauty and lifestyle products. Sampl…
