Not only did I receive my Special Edition PopSugar box (His and Hers), I also received my December PopSugar Must Have Box! I knew exactly what was in the box, but I still couldn’t wait to get my hands on this guy.
PopSugar ships via FedEx Smart Post. It typically takes a week to arrive, but my box was hustling this month and it only took 5 days. I had a tiny silver of hope it would even arrive on Saturday, but it was just a tad too late arriving at the post office that day. I don’t know what happened to the actual picture of the box, but it the contents were slightly larger than the box this month! It must be hard to curate a box knowing you only have SO much room in your box to work with!
The first look was basically as expected, but it’s always more magical to have your box in your hands. Looking at spoilers is one thing, but getting the box? Way better!
As always, PopSugar has their information booklet listing each of the items and the “Must Have” categories they belong in. The December box is described as “the wish list you never knew you needed” and included the following items:
Must Have Fashion:
-Lulu Frost for PopSugar Bracelet ($110): Meh. I’m not sure about this one. I’d never heard of Lulu Frost before this box and I’m not sure it’s really my style. I’m going to give this a few weeks and see if it grows on me. If it doesn’t, I will try and trade it or gift it to someone who would enjoy it!
Must Have Home:
–MIXT Studio Wrapping Paper ($9): I think this fancy wrapping paper is adorable. I may use to wrap teacher / school gifts because there isn’t a ton of paper here. I would NOT buy a package of $9 wrapping paper like this, but I quite appreciate fancy wrapping paper. Every once in a while I will go into like Papyrus and get something gift wrapped. It just feels so much fancier to gift something wrapped in gorgeous fancy paper.
Must Have Beauty:
–modelco Fiber Lashextend Black Mascara ($20): I’m never sad about getting more mascara. I’ve mentioned it before but I am super weird about mascara. If I cannot remember when I opened one I toss it. I had a horrible eye infection (not mascara related but still) a few years ago and it is NOT ever happening again.
Must Have Home:
–govino Go Anywhere Flutes ($12.95): I received a set of the wine glasses in my August 2012 PopSugar Box, and thought they were fabulous, so these are a welcome addition! I read the spoilers for this box Friday night and then right away saw some girl using them at Painting With A Twist! Ha! I wanted to ask her if they were in her PopSugar box, but I knew she’d think I was nuts.
Must Have Food:
–CC MADE Caramel Corn ($4): No feeling one way or another one this. I have gotten some items from CC Made before and they have been good, so I expect these to be as well. However, I am thinking maybe this will be a mailman gift? It’s a perfect little gifting size and I am sure my mail lady needs some snacks for her route!
Must Have Beauty
-NCLA Peppermint Lane Nail Wraps ($16): Please. Someone come over and teach me, better yet, apply these for me. They are adorable and I think this is the first set of nail wraps that I have so badly wanted to use. B’s done with school for the semester this week (yay) so it’s totally possible I will have some free time to work on this.
Must Have Extra:
–Ghiradelli Chocolates (2 bags) ($8): I’m not OMGEXCITED about these, but we do love Ghiradelli chocolates and will buy a bag of them every once in a while at Target. They do feel like a treat to grab and eat for sure. In fact, I ate one while writing this post!
Updated with accurate bracelet price – The December PopSugar Must Have Box has a value of $180. Not my favorite PopSugar Box, but I think it’s totally worth the $40 price tag. I will probably be a PopSugar subscriber for life. I just can’t resist them!
