I did! In person. At a nice lunch. For bloggers. And I wore a dress. With just a little spit up on it. But they didn’t seem to mind. In fact, Pink was very warmly welcomed, as was I. No surprise really, given the business.
Citrus Lane was started by a couple moms who had a fun idea (and who also happen to be really cool to hang out with…and not just to somebody who’s desperate for adult conversation…about kids). What if each month a package arrived at your door with a bunch of cool stuff that was developmentally appropriate for your newborn (up to 18 months)? Fun, right?
Well, after touring the headquarters, chatting with the dedicated and enthusiastic team (which awesomely happens to include interns who are moms re-entering the workforce) and sharing a few ideas of my own (as if they could stop me!), I can confirm that it is, indeed, fun. They’re doing their research to ensure that each box comes with cool, organic/green products that you might not know about, but can easily repurchase if you like them. And they’re listening to feedback to improve the boxes and keep things fresh.
Fun shower gift (buy individual boxes). Fun group gift (get a subscription say from the office/book club/neighborhood). Fun giveaway. What, you say? Yep, fun giveaway. (My first. Ever.) Anyone who comments before October 3rd will be entered to win the box pictured above. Fun, right?
As I mentioned, they’re open to feedback and ideas (and they even gave me their contact info…bold, I know), so if you know of a cool product they might want to check out, please share it.
Disclosure: Citrus Lane hosted me for a luncheon at their headquarters, held my baby while I ate (can’t put a price tag on that!) and gave me two of their monthly boxes (which typically cost $25 each). One for Pink (bring on the teething goodies!) and one for you. “You” being whoever wins my random drawing by submitting a comment, of course. As I’ve updated my About page to reflect, I promise I will only write about brands that I truly enjoy and think you will too.
