I’m 11 years deep in the beauty game, so yes — I’ve been approached a few times to curate a beauty/hair/lifestyle subscription box. I’ve held out or it hasn’t worked out, so many reasons in the past why it wasn’t the right time or the right fit. Then I was approached by the creator of GeenieBox . Are you familiar? Let me tell you a bit about GeenieBox!
First, info from their site — the GeenieBox mission is “…TO INSPIRE YOU TO BOLDNESS BY SHOWCASING ICONIC BLACK WOMEN AND THEIR SECRET WEAPONS – THE MAGIC INSIDE EACH GEENIEBOX.”
And the concept? “GeenieBox is where Black women connect to celebrate, refuel and power up.
Each month, GeenieBox introduces an iconic woman who curates a box of her favorite things that inspire ambitious women to keep going. Our “Geenie” curator of the month shares a book, beauty/productivity/wellness products, and VIP experiences (webinars, museum circles, events and more). The Box brings us together to exchange ideas, learn from, amplify and support one another on our Geenie journeys. Our community also gives forward – advancing women-centric social impact initiatives by donating 5-12% of monthly subscriptions. GeenieBox is the magical gift of motivation you give yourself and others who live and love the mantra “women support women.”
A bunch of women I respect tremendously have been previous Geenies — the list is truly inspiring and keeps growing! I love the concept that includes room for self care and self improvement, and most importantly, gives back. That’s truly what pulled me in.
So this August I’m celebrating 11 years of beauty blogging. SO much has changed in beauty, and I am more inspired than ever by the diversity in the space. On the occasion of my bloggaversary, I’m excited to share that I have partnered with GeenieBox to deliver an anniversary box!
This special edition GeenieBox will feature a few of my favorite brand partners through the years, a book that has inspired me (and continues to inspire me) and a uniquely Chicago experience! Through GeenieBox‘s “give forward,” we also have the opportunity to give back to a charity of my choice, and I chose the under resourced girls and boys in Chicago. Partial proceeds from the sale of my box will go to Mercy Home, a Chicago-based charity that impacts the lives of young people by providing critical housing and resources. I have visited Mercy Home in the past and spent time with some of these girls and their stories of resilience and survival are truly incredible and touching — you can check them out and learn what they do by clicking right here.
Sales for my GeenieBox are open NOW and will close Labor Day. The box will ship by the first week of October. My box is a limited edition one, so grab one now while you can! You can click to purchase here: bit.ly/gbafrobella. And click here to learn more about GeenieBox and Mercy Home.
