Two Questions today…..

~What is your best subscription box product discovery? I am guessing we have done this before, but I have been thinking about it recently and am curious to hear more answers! I am having trouble settling on just one, but I think what we use the most are the Goobyn bento box containers. I’ve received them from Citrus Lane and PopSugar and I absolutely love them. Are they life changing? I don’t know about that, but they are fabulous. My other one is sea salt spray. I didn’t use it before subscription boxes, but now I am hooked for life. It’s been a total game changer.

~What canceled / ended television show do you miss the most and wish was still on? I was thinking about this yesterday and mine is, hands down, Breaking Bad. A friend mentioned he was watching the show – from Season 1 on for the first time on Netflix and I was so jealous that he’d never seen it before. Because even though I can rematch episodes and find things I missed, I still KNOW exactly how it ends. Such a good show!

    I have two products that I got in subscription boxes that I can’t live without now… the GlamGlow mask (thank goodness for TJ Maxx because I REFUSE to pay full price!) and The Aloe Source Radiance Cleanser. I got the cleanser in a recent Glossybox and I. LOVE. I use it with my Clarisonic and I feel like I am glowing afterwards.

    And I am with you on Breaking Bad, I miss it 🙁 and I really miss Jesse

    1. Jennifer

      I want to try the other stuff in the Glam Glow line!

    My favorite product discovery is Number 4 hydrating shampoo and conditioner. I sampled these in Birchbox and they were the BEST I’ve ever used. My hair feels amazing after. Unfortunately they are $$$$ but I saved up enough Birchbox points to get a full-size and a travel size of each. I’m obsessed.

    And 100% agree on Breaking Bad. My husband and I have been rewatching some of the episodes lately, and I swear every 10 minutes on of us it like, “Oh my god, this show is SO good.”

    1. Jennifer

      SO GOOD!!!!

  3. Kristin

    Gressa Lip – I received the Bare in a Petite Vour box and loved it so much I bought the other colours. There are three new colours that I have to have. It’s an all natural product and isn’t sticky, hydrates my lips and just awesome.

    Cancelled show…so many! It seems every show I really like gets cancelled. I liked Revolution but I think it had too long of a winter break and lost a lot of viewers.

    I started watching Gotham and I actually like it.

    1. Stephanie

      Did Revolution get canceled? I’ll be so heartbroken

    2. Jennifer

      I want to try that Gressa Lip!

  4. Vicki

    I am in love with that Barr Company diffuser that came in a Popsugar box a year ago.
    I bought a back-up on ebay.

    1. Jennifer

      That smelled amazing!

  5. Sarah

    I absolutely adore Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Night Cream. Over a year ago, I received a sample in New Beauty Test Tube and it’s fantastic. Smells great, isn’t greasy and super hydrating. Everything makes my skin break out, but this doesn’t – so I love it!

    Cancelled show – two actually. Men in Trees and October Road. Both shows had excellent ensemble casts and great stories.

    1. Jennifer

      I haven’t heard of ether of those! I have so many new shows to check into!

    2. Callie

      I loved October Road!!! It was such a good show!!

  6. Stephanie

    I miss Lie to Me, Medium and Will and Grace

    1. Jennifer

      I have never heard of Lie to Me!

      1. Stephanie

        Omg if you have Netflix and a lazy day please watch a couple of episodes, it is such an awesome show!

  7. Mel

    1 – That Popsugar Musthave Paddywax ocean tide and sea salt candle – love. I don’t even like candles, so that’s saying a lot. I’ve lit it almost every night and I may need to get more.

    2 – Firefly. *sniff*

    1. Debbie

      I love Firefly. I wish it was still on as well.

    2. Jenny

      me too Firefly was AWESOME!!! Shiny

    3. Jenny

      I agree with Firefly. At least it has high re-watchability!

    4. Jennifer

      That one was tiny. If only it were bigger!

  8. Julie

    I’ve only been doing birchbox/ipsy/popsugar for a few months now, but I’m in LOVE with the liz earle polish cleanser. definitely worth the money and it’s nice to be able to get points/dollars off through the birchbox store.

    1. Jennifer

      I too love that. It’s so different than anything else I have!

  9. Cristina

    I love Supergoop CC cream that came in my Birchbox a few months back. I loved it so much that I used my 3 month anniversary code and other points to buy it. I ended up paying $5 for it 🙂

    As for cancelled show, fortunately none of my current shows have been cancelled, but I do miss “The New Normal” which was on for a season. It was hilarious and I don’t understand why it got cancelled.

    1. Kelly

      I LOVED the new normal!!!!! I was so sad it got cancelled 🙁

    2. Jennifer

      I love those Birchbox points!

  10. Brianna

    1. I’m with you on the sea salt spray. I have a long pixie cut and it just gives it some cute texture without having to do any work (styling).

    2. Firefly. It ran for one beautiful season, like ten years ago, and the fans have not left it alone.

    1. Jennifer

      Clearly I need to watch Firefly!

  11. Debbie

    I love my Stila Pallet we got in Popsugar about a year ago.

    And Shows to many to count, Firefly, Lie to Me, and Fringe are a few I miss.

    1. Jennifer

      That was a great pallet!

  12. Erin

    I didn’t realize how many scarves I needed until I started this addiction so I would have to say that, even though it wasn’t really a new discovery.

    And, I have to go old school and say Dawson’s Creek – I miss my Pacey and Joey! 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      Dawson’s Creek!!!!!

  13. Elizabeth

    I think my favorite discovery was the Number 4 Hair Care products from Birchbox. For the favorite show…I don’t know. Every time one goes off the air I find a new one that I like. 🙂

  14. Liz

    I so so so miss SATC, watch re-runs all the time.

    1. Jennifer

      Love that show!

  15. Jenny

    I agree with your likes and I would also say Playful Wash. That stuff is so great on my boys skin.

    TV shows hmm Buffy would be the one I would want back like right now. I agree with the above Firefly. My So Called Life is a back in the day one I would love back. Lets see what was cancelled last season I would like more of hmmm probably the Tomorrow People.

    What do you think the first cancellation of this season will be? I’m not sure but I’m going with one of the new comedies. There are so many this year.

    1. Jen

      I LOVED My So-called Life!

      1. Jennifer

        That was so good!

    2. Jennifer

      Gosh, there were so many new ones this year. I don’t know which will be the first to go!

  16. Jen

    1. The Nixon Diamante thickening treatment from Glossy box and the Hair Cleanser that cam in a From the Lab box.

    2. Shows? I know it’s corny, but I miss How I Met Your Mother- plus it doesn’t help the series finale was disappointing.

    1. Jennifer

      I never got into How I Met Your Mother. I clearly should though!

  17. Hannah

    1. The Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle Spray has to be my favorite find so far. I’m going to have to cave & buy the full size once my points for buying 2 BB plus items goes through 🙂
    2. I could watch Friends every hour of everyday, so I wish that would have never ended. For more recent shows, I miss The Office & even though I haven’t seen the last season of How I Met Your Mother, I still wish it hadn’t ended

    1. Jennifer

      Ahhh, The Office! I hopped on that train way too late and I loved it.

  18. Kimm Jones Furlotte

    LOVE “Breaking Bad” and will be watching “Better Call Saul” ! I wish “Dexter” could come back and give us a better ending! I miss a few older shows like “Ally McBeal” “Ugly Betty” & “Pushing Daisies”… recently canceled/ended that I already miss “Drop Dead Diva” (canceled), “The Big C” (ended) such a great cast & show! and missing “The Killing” after AMC canceled it Netflix picked it up for it’s 4th and final season..such a good show, highly recommended!!

    1. Jennifer

      I can’t wait for Better Call Saul! I will so watch that!

  19. Shawn

    Can’t live without Marcelle 8 in 1 power serum I got in a Birchbox–just wonderful stuff for the price point.

    Really miss “Fringe” (even though it got so weird) and “Dexter” (even though the ending disappointed).

    1. Jennifer

      I need to check out that serum!

  20. Jody

    I am now addicted to The Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle Spray thanks to Birchbox.

    The show I really miss is Heroes…i guess it is coming back as a mini series or something to tie up loose ends, so I am really looking forward to that!

  21. Mallory B

    The Wet Brush – I don’t know how I ever brushed my hair before it! Life changing. Hands down, best/most practical sub. box discovery.

    The shows I miss most… Community and Arrested Development! They were both so hilarious. Netflix and Hulu do what they can to give us more seasons, but it’s definitely not the same. At all.

  22. Pilar

    My favorite item from a subscription box would have to be the Brown Sugar Blondie Brownie from orange glad lol, now I buy them all the time.

    Cancelled shows would have to be Body of proof, Death note, the Office, and Everyone hates Chris. 🙁

  23. PA Anna

    This is a tough decision Either Gourmet Body Treats COQ10 Moisturizing Cream or Bianca Jade #MIZ04 (fall) Quarterly Box. The moisturizing cream has done wonders for my face. I also use it on my surgical scars from 2 years ago which are faded to the point where it is hard to see them. The Bianca Jade Quarterly box touched me in a way no other box has done. I’ve been going through a difficult time as a small business owner along with an illness that zap my strength in the summer. This box was exactly what I needed to cheer me up and move forward. Everything she selected resonated with me, and I even kept her Quarterly letter.

    Showing my age: SATC, Friends, Lost. Most TV I watch now is either on Amazon Prime or Netflix and usually viewed in 10-15 minute increments which is why the Real Housewives shows are perfect for me. Not much plot or concentration required to enjoy them.

  24. PA Anna

    Forgot to mention that I was at the mall today and went into Lush to view the Halloween line. They had the line out to view, but not to purchase yet.

  25. Rachel

    I discovered twistbands from subs, and now I wear them every day. I also got started on Paula’s Choice foam, which I use every few days. It cleared up the acne I’ve been struggling with for years, and makes my skin smooth beyond belief.
