Thursday Thoughts

I'm linking up with Jen from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday Thoughts.

I'm so tired of cold, snowy weather and definitely ready for Spring. Unfortunately, where I live we won't see that for weeks, so I'm trying to stay positive and concentrate on what makes me happy.

A few weeks ago I won a contest from the blog The Box Queen. I love her posts and style tips! I was so surprised to win, because I enter contests like it's my job, but seriously never win ANYTHING! I was so excited when I received her email that I had won the Ipsy February Glam Bag Giveaway. I've never tried Ipsy before, so it was nice to see what types of items they send. And I loved everything in the bag! Here's a picture of my winnings.

Speaking of contests, I plan to do one again real soon!

Another thing that makes me happy is listening to the Popbasic Popcasts. They crack me up, plus I love hearing about everything they have going on. The founder Madeline Veenstra is inspirational! I love what she has done with Popbasic and all the extra quirky things she does for her fans, like the penpal program, the book club, and the popcasts. It's fun to hear and learn about the business and what she has in store for the future. If you haven't listened to the most recent popcast yet, click on this link to check it out. I loved the "Would You Rather" questions. She just seems like such a genuine person that would be so much fun to hang out with. They announced the next collection will be released April 1st and I'm (not so) patiently waiting for it!!!

I've been checking out the Golden Tote spoilers for March and oh my, I seriously love everything I have seen! I ordered a $49 tote this month and I'll be reviewing it soon. I love what I've seen from the $149 totes too. There isn't one piece that I wouldn't want to have. It's making me want to buy another Golden Tote before the end of the month! 

I often think how much fun it would be to work at a Subscription Box company. It'd be a dream job! I've even decided my top 3 to work with would be Popbasic, Golden Tote, and Popsugar Must Have. Can you tell I love clothes (ooh Stitch Fix would be fun too) Seriously, how much fun would it be to help pack up boxes or even have a say in what subscribers get each month? Yes, please! Does anyone else think about this, or am I alone on this one?!? What would be your top choice???


  1. I'm over the snow as well.

  2. Kristie, just saw this post. Love the Thursday thoughts idea and thx so much for mentioning me and the sweet words! <3 So happy to have met you in the blogging world <3 I can't agree more with you in your love for Popbasic. They are the cutest! Also great top three (maybe top four) comps you would like to work for ; all so unique! Have a great weekend! XOXO, Elif
