Introduce yourself!

Welcome to all our new friends on the MSA forum!!


Wow! I didn’t know that the forum is back, until I scroll past a MSA FB post a couple days ago. I’m really surprise, in a good way.

I joined MSA swaps back in 2014. But I haven’t swap or subscribe to any boxes in the last 2 or 3 years. Honestly, I rarely visit the MSA site, except one or twice a year, around BF, just to see if there’s any good deals around. It is sad to see so many good boxes are no longer around :cry:

I hope to come here more often now, just to see good reviews or funny posts.


@lingz, glad you’re here! I hope you enjoy it. Welcome.


@lingz so glad you’re back & hope you come and hang out with us often. There are so many fun chats! So what was your favorite sub box in the past? Anything new catch your eye? :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Everyone. My names is Elizabeth and I have been on MSA since 2016. I don’t swap as much now as I used to primarily because I have downsized the number of subscriptions I have and really don’t need any beauty/skincare/haircare products, Thanks to sub. boxes, I am all set in these areas until 2050! I am fairly certain my swap stock will outlive me!

My 2 daughters are both grown up and even though it has been almost 4 years, I am still getting used to being a grandmother (or in my case, Nona). My oldest daughter lives in Florida, so I go down to spend time with my grandkids, ages 2 and 3 four times a year to give her and husband a break, as well as feed my beach addiction. When I am not working ( which is most of the time), I enjoy relaxing with my three fur babies. We have two cats that are shared with my youngest daughter until she finishes college and my 6 year old ball obsessed lab “puppy”, Hemi.

I currently subscribe to Hello Fresh, Home Chef, Alltrue, FabFitFun, Home Decor, Bombay & Cedar Quarterly Lifestyle, Journee, That Daily Deal Monthly Mystery Bix and my favorite, Beachly. At one point I subscribed to over 20 boxes (yes, I got seriously carried away!). I so glad that the forum is back and I welcome any questions you might have about subscription boxes.


Hi, I must start by saying IT’S ALL MY MOTHER’S FAULT lol She got me a monthly kit called the World Explorers Club. Once a month I would get a box and it would be all about a country. I think it was about the children there. I got a recording, a book and a toy or instrument from that country. So now I am totally hooked. Right now I am getting the Ipsy glam bag (the small one) and today I got my first Simply Earth box which is essential oils and recipes to make bath and beauty stuff. Looks great and I look forward to making my own scented candles.


Welcome, @dianacollins! I think it is great that your mom got you that box. It sounds so fun.


The World Explorers Club sounds awesome!! Glad it (ultimately) led you here. Welcome. :slight_smile:


Welcome to the forum! We are so happy to have you here!!

I was born in 1953 and delighted that I’ve been able to appreciate so many decades.


I wanted to add that we were very poor and so it meant even more. and that i still love getting a fun box with surprises every month. I try not to read allllll the spoilers. I have tried out some boxes with all the specials. I tried Birch box and the Allure Box . I was never disappointed. I love the opportunity to try skin care for a few days before purchasing a larger size that is why I settled on the Ipsy Glam bag for my yearly subscription.

I don’t think i introduced myself yet, so here it goes. I am 54 and have six children and three grandchildren. I have three boys and three girls. My youngest will be 19 in October, and my oldest will be 33 in April. I first started getting subscription boxes in 2016. At one point my family was subscribed to 31 subscriptions monthly! We have cut way down though now. We have two, possibly three dogs. We are fostering a dog and she is so sweet! We will probably adopt her. We have four cats and we foster a few too. We volunteer with a feline rescue too. We love to travel, have not done any traveling recently for various reasons, however looking forward to doing so soon. I am an INFJ and a Capricorn. My favorite color is blue and i love Mexican food. :heart: Looking forward to getting to know you all better.


Oh hi again everyone, Kai here!

Just wanted to say hello again–not sure everyone knows who I am. I write a lot of the daily content for MSA (spoilers, etc.) and I’m going to be around more often in the forum too.

The very shortest bio on me (you’ll find being long-winded is my default) is that:

  • I’m in my 40s (which I always kinda forget until I have to mention it),
  • I have a 22 year old daughter in grad school at NYU (ugh sorry, I hear my own mother in my mind saying “say it’s the Engineering School!”) doing things I don’t understand (virtual reality, augmented reality etc?),
  • I’m a New Jersey native and live nearish to the Delaware Bay,
  • and I have some sort of health condition where I am in love with BTS.

Also, I make so many typos. When I was in high school I used so much Wite-Out. So much.

I’m currently subscribed to FabFitFun, Birchbox, Ipsy and Freshly–and Allure!..and Margot Elena or Norlii may be next.

I’m very much looking forward to getting to know you all better and hopefully making MSA a better place to be online!


Great to have you here, @Kai-MSA!! Everyone, you’ll be seeing Kai around these parts a bit more often. She’s going to be helping out with the monthly spoiler initiative and can help with questions.

Welcome, Kai!! I’m so glad you’re here!!
