Hi there, I'm Christen! I've been writing with MSA since 2017. I am all sorts of things: a writer, a mother, an outdoors-lover, a low-maintenance self-carer, and general hungry person.

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in earth tones and flowy silhouettes that make me feel amazing, wearing big earrings, drinking beer and asking my husband to feed me harmonies to sing, taking my vitamins, living for live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.

I should have picked up two winter boxes from FFF back when I could customize, or three – it turned out my mom LOVED my Lily Pulitzer mugs, and so did my older sister! I wish I’d grabbed another set or two, as they would have been perfect Mother’s Day gifts. I tried writing CS when the winter box was in the shop to see if I could customize one a bit more, since it said to write CS for more options, but they misunderstood and just directed me back to the shop. And then it got replaced with the Spring box.

I tried Birchbox, had it for years. But I feel overloaded with makeup and I canceled when they stopped giving points for reviews.
I do FFF from time to time. Some of their boxes are really good, but it’s spotty
