The Team

Mel 

I am the founder of Boxession. I have always had a business mind, with a varied work background in Retail Management, Recruitment, Training and HR. I realised that one day it was my Dream to work for Myself, so this for me is not only a Hobby, but a Career. I didn’t return to work after the Birth of my second son by choice. I set about to find something to keep my brain occupied, so I went to College in my spare time and became CIPD qualified to add another string to my bow so to speak.

I have always been a huge Subscription Box addict, so writing about them and testing the products really is my idea of heaven. Writing for me is a true passion.

 I love to ask advice from other ladies on the group and discover new products. My other hobbies (boxes aside), I love Cars, I have been driving since I was old enough to be behind the wheel! I love nails, I have long nails that are my pride and joy and my little treat in life is to paint them all the colours in the rainbow. I am also a classically trained Pianist, although kids take away my time to carry out that hobby these days.

My Boxession – I am a huge Skincare Lover, anything scented or homely too. My kids love Geek and Gaming Boxes, as does my Partner. My partner also loves Fishing, Cooking Boxes and Food or Snack ones are a firm favourite in our House. We love getting trial boxes to find the hidden gems of the Box World, and the ones we love become a regular appearance in the post.

Gemma

I’m 27, I’m from Sheffield and I’m a Junior Psychologist and personal trainer. I first became interested in beauty as a teenager, as a way of expressing myself and building my self esteem. It grew from there, and my obsession with subscription boxes started around 18 months ago. I joined Boxession to chat to other likeminded people, and get tips and recommendations for brands and products to try. I am a skincare addict and my bathroom cabinet would put Boots to shame! My main interest is Natural and Cruelty Free products, as well as mindfulness, wellness and mental wellbeing.

When I’m not blogging for Boxession, or my own blog, I’m usually at the gym, watching sport or campaigning for mental health awareness. I also have a black belt in kickboxing- so try and steal one of my face masks at your peril! Ha ha. I’m very thankful to be a part of the amazing team here at Boxession, and the lovely community we have!

Chloe

I’m Chloe and I’m a makeup addict. First step to recovery is admitting the facts right? My favourite product has to be a nude liquid lipstick closely followed by a blinding highlight. As well as makeup I am also obsessed with dogs! I think they bring your mood up when you are feeling low and are the best company. A bit like BoXession really! I joined the group quite a while ago now and have enjoyed the atmosphere and friendships I have made. It is great for meeting like minded people, discussion and of course finding out about new Subscription Boxes.

I live in Cambridge so have a variety of shops nearby, means a good sale never goes a miss! I do still love online shopping and finding a great bargain. Although I am into beauty items I do enjoy working on my car and going to events. Bit of an adrenaline junkie, I love roller coasters and fast cars.

Nazia

I’m Nazia and I’m a 31-year old pharmacy technician, born in east London and currently living and working in Essex. My biggest passion is food – I love eating! I love discovering new restaurants and recipes, and I love watching cooking shows on TV. As well as cooking shows I also enjoy watching movies and love going to the cinema and catching up with the latest Netflix shows. I would love to travel to all four corners of the world. I try jetting off to visit as many different cities and countries as I can and to learn about the history, culture and not forgetting the most important part – tasting the cuisine!

I’ve always loved make up, I was never very sure what colours and shades suited me so I always stuck to simple plain makeup. Since joining BoXession last year, that has all changed. I’ve experimented more and branched out my skin care routine which now takes twice as long! I still can’t do a smoky eye to save my life but I now use products I wouldn’t normally use, am totally obsessed with face masks and don’t shy away from a red lip anymore. I’ve learnt so much from this group and I love being a part of a community of women that help and empower each other. I especially feel privileged to be a part of the admin team!
