Our final featured Birchbox lady is none other than the Director of Editorial Operations, Benedicta Cipolla. Better known as Bene, this lively boss lady puts multi-tasking to shame. She can bring organizational magic to any team with her eyes closed, while planning and cooking her next five meals. Having lived and worked as a reporter and writer in Rome, Italy, her infatuation with food is as blissful and intoxicating as it is with beauty. Meet Bene.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Cook, eat, think about eating and cooking (I’m often imagining my next meal while eating my current one). 
Right now I’m all about Morocco, having recently returned from a 10-day trip. I’ve got homemade preserved lemons in the fridge, outrageously good fig honey drizzled on top of my yogurt in the morning, and this crazy delicious 4-spice mix from the old Jewish quarter in Marrakech that is transforming fish, chicken, and all kinds of spring vegetables. When I’m not consumed by the thought of food, I’m often out exploring different neighborhoods in the city with my camera—I’ve always been a photography and video nut.


What is your personal motto or mantra?
Humility. Being humble doesn’t mean you lack confidence; it means you have the grace to realize that you’re not superior to everyone else. Arrogance is probably my least favorite quality in a person.
What is your best beauty pick for the summer?
I can’t get enough of the refreshing cucumber smell of this COOLA SPF 30 face moisturizer.

If you could give one piece of advice to your 14 year-old self, what would it be?
Life isn’t a straight line. Roll with the curves, and don’t beat yourself up even when you fall off the track completely—losing your balance every so often makes you stronger.
Follow Bene and her beauty and foodie adventures on Twitter and Instagram.
Check out the recently rebranded Birchbox online and see what Birchbox is up to on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and their blog.
