Every month I get SO excited for my PopSugar Must Have Box and even though I already know what’s inside (I cave and peek every month), I totally stalk my mailman looking for it. And if I feel like it’s not moving efficiently though FedEx / USPS (it travels through FedEx Smart Post) when I track it, I get all pissy and start whining about how I NEED my box. Woe is me for sure. Luckily PopSugar didn’t torture me this month and make me wait super long to get it.
This month’s box weighed 2.7lbs. Once I find out the shipping weight I try to guess what’s inside. It never works.
Now let’s get to the good part. Here’s what was inside:
As usual, I won’t bore you with pictures of every single page of the information booklet. With the exception of the first month (which I am going to just pretend never happened), PopSugar has sent us various items from their “Must Have” categories. I really like that idea because you end up with such a wide variety of things.
And now, the details:
Must Have Fashion:
gorjana Parker Leather Wrap ($55): I love this bracelet. It looks sort of black in the picture, but it’s actually a redish / brown. It’s not overly fancy. Or overly casual. It’s just right. Seriously, I love this. It’s something I never would have bought myself, so I’m glad it was in here.
Must Have Beauty:
MOR Lip Macaron ($10): This might be the prettiest packaging ever for a lip gloss. I am for sure throwing this in my bag for use while out and about. It’s too pretty just to sit in my make-up bag (that doesn’t usually see the light of day). And the product itself doesn’t sound half bad either ;).
Must Have Home:
Snow & Graham Boxed Notecards ($15): I am totally big into Thank You notes, but honestly, at $16 for 6 cards, I would never buy these myself. I almost feel like they are too good to use. But I will force myself to use them in I have too. Heck, I’d even write B a hand-written Thank You card if he bought me those Gucci boots I am dreaming of.
Must Have Fitness:
Mandy Ingber: Yogalosophy DVD ($9.79): I am not overly excited about this. I would never buy a Yoga DVD. I could just use the free On Demand yoga videos? But this is way more my speed than the workout DVD that they sent in the August box. I’m going to make B try this with me. Maybe there is something I am missing by only using the free videos?
Must Have Food:
Stonewall Kitchen Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Mix ($9.95): I know some people were annoyed by this because they don’t have a doughnut pan. But for some reason, I think I do have one. Somewhere. This will be a perfect project for L and I to do!
La Boîte Spices ($23.99): This set included spice mixes (Reims N.39, Cancale N.11, and Yemen N.10), as well as, some recipes. It’s very fancy pants and would make a great gift for someone who loves to cook. If B didn’t read my blog and know I had this, I would totally wrap it up for him for Christmas. Heck, I still might ;).
Must Have Extras:
Canvas Pop Gift Code ($30): At first I was super excited excited about this because I thought it would get me a free canvas. But I looked at the website and realized that an 8×10 canvas costs $49 PLUS $14 in shipping. Kinda spendy if you ask me. Still, I will use this code, so I am including it in my value. BUT, I do think this would have been 100x better if it were for a free canvas.
StyleMint Gift Code ($29.99): I’ve never used any of the “mint” websites and don’t know what they are all about, but I am excited to browse and spend this. I will probably get the mystery box from StyleMint. I mean why not?
The verdict? I am super pleased and think this was TOTALLY worth the $35 is cost. I calculated this box to have a total value of $183.72. Now, would I have spent $183.72 to buy all this stuff? NO. But I for sure would have paid $35 so I am happy!! I would rank this box behind September (seriously nothing is going to top that), but ahead of August and October. And July? Well, I am just going to pretend that never happened.
If you haven’t subscribed yet, what are you waiting for? Click here and just do it. I believe if you sign up now, you can still get the December box! Or you can gift it to someone who you think would love it. Holiday shopping made easy! And if you got the November box, what did you think? I kinda think if don’t like the bracelet, you won’t really like the box? I’d suggest giving it as a gift. Everyone will be giving your kids teachers Bath & Body Works lotion sets and you’ll be giving out a gorjana bracelet? Hello brownie points!!
