About Me: The Face Behind the Brand

Tomorrow marks the 120 days that Kundan Box has been live, and these past four months I have been able to create friendships and relationships that I did not think would be possible. It wasn’t until I had more than I care to admit customers say “sorry, didn’t catch your name” that I realized I was basically anonymous. Having missed the bandwagon on the Instagram trend of posting the face behind the brand. I thought today would be a good day to formally introduce myself and put a face to the Instagram dms.

Hi everyone,

As most of you know, my name is Anisha and I am the owner and sole employee of Kundan Box. These past couple of months have been exhilarating with a few ups and downs with the ongoing pandemic.

I am currently 25 years old and I have a Bachelors degree in Sociology from UBC. Having my own passion project isn’t something that I had envisioned for myself. Yes I had the CEO dreams that everyone has: amazing, high power position, with the car and shoes to match and taking over the world single handedly. Then I along with most others, grew up. Went through highschool, university and sat in a rut thinking about what to do after graduation. Side hustle or passion project? Maybeee in twenty or thirty years.

Fast forward to September 2019, I was getting my lashes done by Jannet (@lashedbyjannet be sure to check her out) and was commending her on taking the risk and starting her own business; while being a student and working part time. I apprehensively told Jannet my idea; I had heard of other Indian subscription box companies, but between the horror stories or the inaccessibility of boxes that were catered to Americans, I found there was a huge hole in the market for Canadians.

After that appointment, I had my lashes done, and knew my company name, and was on a mission to find wholesalers. From November to February, I was got caught up in Graduation, Christmas, and quietly starting Kundan Box which brings us to now!

Some quick facts about me:

  • I love sushi and pizza (or any carb for that matter)
  • Chaa is life
  • I’m 5’0
  • Sucker for rom-coms
  • Suits on Netflix is my go to show
  • Cactus > Earls
  • White nails > every other colour (it’s honestly a problem at this point. The lady at the salon always says “Nisha, pick a colour, no white”)

I cautiously asked my friends how they would describe me, and have chosen to share the following:

  • Planner
  • Meticulous
  • Funny
  • Caring
  • Adventurous
  • Easy-Going
  • Friendly
  • Honest

I feel like I need to send thank you notes to my friends 😭

Throughout this quarantine, I have been binging on Netflix. Some of the series I have finished are:

  • Jane the Virgin –> this was the most frustrating show I have watched, though it did make for some good twitter content
  • Modern Family –> after seeing episodes here and there, I’m glad I was able to watch the entire series consecutively
  • Never Have I Ever –> was so relatable, despite the 8 year age gap difference
  • Family Karma (Hulu) –> Anisha was my favourite 😂😉
  • Keeping up with the Kardashians (Hulu) –> my go-to makeup look is now a brown smokey eye for the summer

So now that I have revealed myself as a Netflix addict, here are a few of my other hobbies

  • Hiking
  • Organizing (Marie Kondo is revolutionary and brings me joy)
  • Cooking
  • Shopping (that counts right? Except I’m that one person who isn’t a fan of online shopping with the exception of Amazon)

Well that’s me in a nutshell. Hope that helps since I’m not trying to be anonymous!

July Box: Bangle Measurements

On Instagram we recently polled whether our audience would be interested in reading a blog on our website and the vast majority of you said yes! So I am so excited to announce that Kundan Box will now be a part of the blogsphere.

Hi Everyone,

For our first blog post we thought it would be fitting to have a mini tutorial on how to figure out your bangle size, as the July box has a set of 3 bangles. And we received tons of DMs asking how to find yoru bangle size. There are a few different options so we will quickly go through three of them.

  1. Bangle Box
  2. Measure a Bangle
  3. Measure wrist

Bangle Box: The first option is the easiest, and it is simply finding the sticker that is on a bangle box that you already own. Although they are known for notoriously falling off, sometimes you can get lucky save yourself some trouble.

Measuring a Bangle: This option is the second easiest. It consists of cutting a thread to the size of your bangle and measuring the length. Then taking those measurements (in inches) and finding the corresponding bangle size in the chart below. You can also skip the thread and measure the bangle using a measuring tape (2 birds 1 stone!)

Measuring Wrist: The last resort is easy if you have someone helping you, but as in the option above, instead of taking the circumference of your bangle, you are taking it of your wrist. Be sure there is plenty of slack. A trick is to measure the largest area of your wrist. To do so you put place your hands palms facing up. Bring your thumb to your ring finger or pinky and measure around your thumb joint, again giving some slack. Once you have your measurement (in inches), find the corresponding bangle size in the chart below.
