July 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box

Of ALL the boxes that were waiting for me when I got home (and trust me, there were A LOT), I went for the July 2014 PopSugar Must Have box first. You’d think I would have gone for one I didn’t know what was in it, but nope, I went for PopSugar.

If you aren’t familiar, PopSugar Must Have Box (which is probably my favorite box ever) is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100!

The Box

The PopSugar Must Have Box ships via FedEx Smart Post and OMG, my box took forever this month. I believe it took 11 days to get to me (in MI) from where it ships in New York. I think the storms on the East Coast had something to do with it, but I thought that was wild!

First Look

There were (as there usually are) some variations to this month’s box and I was super excited to see which I received. I didn’t have any preferences – I just wanted to know!

July 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box
The Information Card

The July 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box was inspired by Hot Summer Nights, Eating Al Fresco, Longer Days, Lemonade, Sunshine, Vacation and Outdoor Workouts and included the following items:

Michael Stars Sea Grass Crusher Hat ($48): I am not a huge hat person (although I want to be), but when I want to wear a hat it’s going to be this one. Or the one we got from PopSugar last Spring.  I think I like this one better though because it isn’t as big. And I like the little charm thing on it.

Michael Stars Beach Hat

French Bull Ziggy Salad Servers ($12): Totally love these. They will for for salads, fruit salads and tons of other side dishes. And they are really cute too, which is the best part.  I mean seriously, how cold I not like these?

Sun Bum SPF 30 Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion ($11.99) & ‘Cool Down’ Hydrating After Sun Lotion ($7.99): I have heard nothing but good things about Sun Bum stuff. I have a friend who swears by it.  It smells great too.

July 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box
Sun Sum Sunscreen & Lotion

ACME Party Box Company Chevron Straws ($7): I am normally not a fan of paper straws (I don’t like when they get soft), but these do seem pretty sturdy.  And yeah, they are chevron and adorable, so I’d say I love them.

TKO Jump Rope (~$10): I should use this, but I don’t know if / when I will.  B actually might though.  Maybe.  And if nothing else I can always use it to teach L to jump rope.

Dang Foods Toasted Coconut Chips ($3): While good I would have preferred a different snack.  Something I have never tried before would have been better (for me anyway).   But I know not everyone has had these (my cousin gets PopSugar and was super excited about these), so I might be alone in this.

Revlon Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara ($7.99): This mascara is everywhere!  It came BoxyCharm last month and I believe it’s in Beauty Box 5 this month as well (I haven’t opened that one yet though).   I will probably end up throwing my spares into a beauty boxes I make for my friends.

All totaled I came up with a value of $107.97 for the July 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box!  I thought this was a great month and think that the hat was the make or break item this month.  If you like the hat and if fits I am guessing you are happy with this box.  If not, I am thinking it wasn’t your favorite month.  I know that’s how I feel anyway!

    I like those salad servers!

  2. Erin Martin

    I’ve always wanted to try this box but when I look at the reviews each months some months I LOVE and want to go sign up and others are just okay or already similar to other boxes I get lol. The hat and salad spoons are super cute!! 🙂

  3. Holly

    The salad tongs are adorable!

  4. Nikki H

    Looks like a fun box this month! I think I’d be most excited about the salad servers and the hat.

  5. Gina G

    I like the salad servers. You can buy matching stuff (Ziggy print from French Bull) from Birchbox.

  6. Lanie

    The hat is one thing I would never buy myself. I feel like I should own a hat, especially as I am about to move to a beach town.

  7. Jessie m

    the hat.

  8. Jean Eckert

    I think the salad servers are my favorite item because I cannot seem to find mine anywhere and these would make a cute replacement!

  9. Linsey J

    I like the salad spoons, which i would probably just use for mixing spoons, and the sun/after sun lotions.

  10. Jenny

    The salad tongs. Those are awesome and I don’t use serving tongs often but for those I would have too more.

  11. Maura

    Love the salad servers… And the sunscreen!

  12. Terri Q

    I love the look of the hat, but I have a big head so not sure if it would fit. The salad servers are also adorable and those are one size fits all! 🙂

  13. Candace

    I think the Sun Bum products are my favorites out of this box…love the smell and will get the most use. But those salad servers are great too!

    I loved the hat but it sadly didn’t fit my big head! It made a great gift though. My second fave was the salad servers,

  18. Ashley g

    Surprisingly I think I was most excited about the sun bum items. I totally didn’t expect that but they smell amazing. Then again the whole box was a hit for me. I got two nd I think the extra items are great for gifts!

    Yep, the Revlon mascara was in Beauty Box 5 (which I canceled after disliking 2/3 boxes I got from them). I do like the salad servers in this box, and we somehow don’t have any of those–might have to trade for them!

  58. Kelsea Etson

    The Sun Bum and salad servers!!!

  59. Kim S.

    love that hat!

  60. Ann Marie

    My favorite item was probably the salad servers. I do like the hat a bit, though, which surprises me. It is pretty tight though. I got it in a chocolate color which I really like, and it looks pretty good on actually. Hats are just never as good of an idea as one first thinks, IMO. Women’s hats, I mean, except baseball hats. (NOT trucker hats, Nina Garcia. I’m not in Justin Bieber’s entourage. My first name isn’t “lil.”) 🙂

  61. Lori

    The Sun Bum stuff. Even though I have so much sunscreen right now. Hopefully my little boys will use it all up this summer!

  62. breanne

    the salad tongs!

  63. Rebecca

    The salad servers I don’t have any and those look cute.

  64. Nicole

    Love the salad tongs, but everyone needs protection on their bum…from the sun 😉

  65. Abbey C

    The HAT! Definitely needing a new beach hat! 🙂

  66. Rebecca Brewer

    I love the hat. I’ve had the coconut chips and love them also, especially in salted caramel.

  67. lia

    I know it’s not the most expensive or anything, but I’m really wanting to try the Sun Bum stuff. My sister got a terrible burn last weekend and I was wishing she had some after sun stuff on hand. Since we’re doing Concerts in the Park the next few weeks, I think I need to stock up on SPF and aftersun stuff.

  68. Lauren

    The sunscreen is my favorite!

  69. Linh

    I am in love with the salad server, the color is just sooo me. I hope I win 🙂

  70. Pilar

    I like the salad servers the best!

  71. Gail

    Love the salad servers….

  72. Allison

    I love the salad servers.

  73. Julie B

    The jump rope!

  74. Karen

    I love the mascara and jumprope the most ! Thanks for this chance!

  75. Jessica

    I agree with some of the other ladies… I keep wanting to subscribe to this, but I am always nervous that I will get a horrible first box with a mix tape and half eaten candy bars or something… 🙂 But, this might be the one that convinces me to give it a try…

  76. Mandi Thomas

    My favorite is definitely the salad servers! So cute!

  77. JacLyn

    The coconut chips were so good! The salad servers are adorable, though. 🙂 We got the dark brown hat. I love the color, but have noticed after a couple days of my girls wearing it, the coloring around where the middle meets the brim is wearing off and getting a bit rough. :/

  78. Diane F

    I love the salad servers!!!!

  79. Fawn

    I like the TKO Jump Rope best! I’d love to get one for myself to jump start fitness routine!

  80. Linda

    That hat! It looks awesome!

  81. terri s

    I love that hat! and need the sunscreen stuff; and the salad servers so cute 🙂

  82. Gina H.

    I’ve never completely gotten the draw of PSMH. There’s always one or two thing that I’d be interested in, but then the rest is a total miss for me. Or at least not things I’d be OVERLY excited about–nice to have, but meh. This months hit for me would be the hat. I keep saying I need one for when I’m sitting outside *not* worshiping the sun. But things like the jump rope or mascara (I love mascara, but not 20 of the same one!) are total duds for me. My ceilings are too low to do that in the house, and no way I’m jumping rope outside for all my neighbors to see!

  83. cindy

    salad servers

  84. Dawn P.

    The hat, the hat, I love the hat!!!!

  85. Clara

    I’ve been looking for some salad servers – and these are beyond adorable! Definitely would have to say I like those the best. I’m a big fan of the Dang Coconut Chips so they’re a runner up 🙂

  86. Steph

    loving those salad tongs! Super cute & fun!

  87. Rose D.

    The hat! You can never have too many sun hats!

  94. Regan

    I love the salad servers! Too cute!

  95. Sophie

    Is it weird that I really want to try the sunscreen? Haha. I’ve been a nut about applying sunscreen this summer.

  96. Beth

    salad servers

  97. Laura

    I think I like the salad servers most. I cancelled my PopSugar subscription though after having a 3 month subscription and not actually using most of the stuff. The only thing I can remember actually using is the Avocado or whatever shopper tote. The jump rope is cute too, but I already have a weighted jump rope that I bought at the very least 5 years ago that is still in the packaging. The coconut chips look good too, I love shredded coconut.

  98. Crstina

    I’m pretty excited about the French Bull Ziggy Salad Servers!

  99. Kathryn Johnson

    I would love the hat!

  100. Lynsey

    The serving spoons

  101. Kim

    I wish I could have gotten this one. The items are super cute and unique. Oh man that hat is perfection!

  102. Natalie R

    It’s all about those adorable salad servers! Thanks for the chance to win!

  103. Crystal

    Would love to try the Sun Bum, I always see it at Nordstroms and never seem to pick it up. The hat is also adorable, my daughter would love it!

  104. Bridget Heiple Reich

    The hat, straws & jump rope! 🙂

  105. Kathy

    I want the cutest hat ever!

  106. Amanda

    The Salad Tongs, no question!

  107. Kacee

    I love love LOVE the salad servers. Seriously, I’m tempted to just buy those separately! (Unless I win, of course. 😉 )

  112. Crystal

    I might be the only one but I am loving that jump rope! It looks sturdy & is still fashionable. I was in the market for a jump rope anyways so I may just have to get it! =)

  113. kaila lauridsen-moore

    I like all of it!

  114. Alecia

    The hat!!!:)

  124. Kathy

    I love the hat.

  125. Karen

    The salad servers were my favorite! It may have been the hat if it actually fit. I measured mine and it only had a 21″ circumference… seems way too small!

  128. Erin

    The salad servers!

  129. gary

    I like the salad servers

  130. Rebecca

    I go back and forth on whether to subscribe to this one. I rather like the salad serving set. I might just be sold on trying Popsugar soon. The salad servers are super cute.

  138. Sara G.

    I like the straws 🙂

  139. Tonya (Taj Kingston)

    I’d love to try the mascara!

  140. karsen

    I swear by sunbum! Smells like bananas to me… It’s expensive but totally worth it! I love it. Haven’t gotten a sunburn since I’ve started using this!

  141. Melissa

    I’d love a follow up on your thoughts on the Sun Bum stuff. They sell it at a cute shop in town at the beach we always go to and every year I want to buy it and every year my husband says no because we already have suntan lotion with us. But it’s so cute, and they have a whole line, and I am so intrigued.

    1. Jennifer

      Just forget to bring your stuff next time! JK, I will update when I get a chance to use it!

  142. Annie Rae

    The servers are super cute…but I love that sun hat~

    My Favorite is the hat! I’ve always wanted to try a hat similar to the one in this month’s box!

    I am so not a hat person unless it is my beloved Patriots had, but I am really loving that hat!
