November 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box

Eeek!  My November 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box is here!  I look forward to this box every single month and this month was no exception.

If you aren’t familiar with them, PopSugar Must Have Box 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

PopSugar ships via FedEx Smart Post and took six days to arrive this month.  I know that it was only a day less than normal, but it seemed much quicker this month.

First Look

As usual I knew everything that was going to be in the box, but it didn’t make me any less excited to get it in the mail.  I do not believe that I have ever been spoiler free for PopSugar.  I don’t think I ever will be either.

November 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box
The Information Card

The November 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box was inspired by Gratitude, Gourmet Treats, Indulging, Hosting, Giving & Gathering and included the following items:

~”Dominique Ansel: The Secret Recipes” ($20.47): I would love to sample some of these desserts and certainly wouldn’t mind having a Cronut, which is the Chef’s signature item, but I am not so sure how easy it will be to make them on my own! They seem a bit (okay a lot) complicated.  But the pictures are gorgeous and I will probably try to make a few items eventually.

~Simpatico Shea Butter Cream in Ambergris ($22): This hand cream smells great and it’s one item I can never get enough of.  I opened it right away (with scissors since there is no little pokey thing on the cap) and it’s awesome.  Smells good and is very moisturizing as well.

~Wine Glass Writer Metallic Pens (3-Pack) ($9.95): So cool!  The thought of writing on a wine glass (or any drinking glass for that matter) never occurred to me.  We have window markers that the kids love and this is exactly the same idea.  These will be awesome for parties so you don’t lose your drink and instead of using place cards at parties, you could have names on people’s water glasses!  They would work for gifting a bottle or wine or liquor too!

~G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix ($4): So good!  Everyone has been raving about these and I certainly see why.  It’s a delicious snack and between B and the kids and I, this bag will be gone tonight.

~Tiny Prints “Thoughtful Heart” Notecards ($15.90): These are super super cute.  And actually, the entire PopSugar + Tiny Prints line is awesome too.  I may just have to order my Christmas cards from there (the box also includes a Tiny Prints coupon code).

~Sorial Saffiano Wallet on a Chain ($49): This bag is cute and I really like that it has a chain on it, but it’s super tiny!  I am used to carrying GIANT bags around, so it’s going to take a minute to get used to it.  It will seriously fit my iPhone (I have the 6 Plus), money and a small lip balm.

All totaled I came up with a value of $121.32 for the November 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box. I think this is probably one of my favorite boxes they have done in the last few months.  It has a little something for everyone and I think a lot of the items could easily be gifted if they don’t quite work for you!

    Really excited for the tiny prints coupon. Can’t wait to place an order–I’m a total stationary HOARDER!

    1. Nicho

      Hey Elizabeth, did you try to place an order yet? I tried to order a set just like the ones we received in the box, but with different lettering in the heart. I can’t get past the part of the site where I change the lettering though. I click the “next” button and it never goes anywhere. I’ve tried on three computers now. 🙁 Did their website work properly for you??

      1. Elizabeth

        Hey Nicho! Sorry to hear about the trouble. I haven’t placed an order yet because PSMH box hasn’t arrived!! Wish I could help. Maybe the ladies at MUT can help–try posting there!

      2. Tiny Prints

        Hi Elizabeth!

        Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. We are working on fixing this right away so that the card will allow you to customize the lettering! Please check back soon as it should be fixed in the near future.

        – The Tiny Prints Team

        1. Tiny Prints

          Again, thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. Our team has fixed the issue and you are now able to change the font/greeting and continue to cart. We hope you enjoy your POPSUGAR for Tiny Prints personalized stationery.

  21. Maria A.

  24. Valerie Sanders

  26. Robyn

    The cream

  27. Diana

    I can only fit my IPhone 6 plus if I take off my cover. 🙁 I guess my phone is just too huge. I’m probably going to be swapping or gifting the wallet.

  28. Kelsey

    The cute notecards! Always need more

  29. Chrissy

    I love the wallet ,but I think I love the wine glass markers more!

  45. Patricia

    I got my box today too, I was actually surprised how tiny the bag is (and how long the chain is!) I m happily surprised to hear your 6+ fits I felt like my much smaller phone barely fit (people would be pretty bummed if their phones didn’t fit in there). I am excited to be introduced to that handbag brand though, christmas shopping score. Overall a fun box I was surprised how daunting some of those recipes look though, hope you tell us if u successfully make any! Thanks for the review!

  46. Robin

    Loooove the cross body bag!

  47. Kristi

    Definitely the glass markers!

  48. Ali M

    Honestly, the wine writers! But I want the cookbook to gift…

  70. allison

    my favorite thing is the wine writers

  71. sonya

    This is the most ridiculous question but I was wondering if people grab both flavors of popcorn and eat them at the same time or do you eat cheese by itself and caramel by itself lol, sorry…

    1. Nicho

      I ate the cheese by itself then the caramel by itself… except the crumbs in the bottom of the bag which were all mixed up… surprisingly they tasted good mixed together!

  72. Kristine

    I really like the purse. I’ve been looking for a cute one to carry my essentials.

  73. Michelle

    I love the purse! Perfect for a night out when I don’t want to carry my giant purse. Also good to throw in my giant purse during the day in case I go out to lunch with a client and want to pair down for the hour. 🙂

  74. Rebecca

    I think getting a book is a great idea. Love baking so it’s even better!

  75. Percylyn

  77. Yudelia

    The hand cream and note cards are my fave!!!

  78. Lauren

  79. Mary Beth

    I think this box is a total win. I love the wallet. My phone is small and fits, but honestly I don’t need my phone with me most of the time. If my husband has his and were together it’s all good. I am a little surprised about how big people’s phones are getting..don’t really understand that trend, but that’s just me. I love every item in this box and would consider buying another if I wasn’t already done Christmas shopping for the ladies in my life.

  80. Wanica McNeil

    Cute bag!

  81. Jessica A

    I am excited for the purse/wallet! I became very excited when I found that a cell phone, lip gloss and card can all fit inside 🙂

  82. Marietta

    I love the Sorial wallet. So cute!

  83. katrina b

    the cookbook

  84. Beth

    I think the wallet may be my favorite. I wish you could take the strap off and attach a wristlet strap. But I’m also digging the crossbody style!

  85. Leana

    I guess the cookbook but I loved it all minus the wallet on the chain. On the plus side I traded that for something I absolutely love: the scarf from the msa01 box.

  86. Dasha

    The wallet and markers! And popcorn haha

  87. clarisse

    the cookbook and the notecards look great!

  107. Kathy

    The hand cream.

  127. Jana Williams

    Thank You So Much for Another Fantastic Giveaway; You are a Very Generous & Giving Person! I Can Honestly Say that Out of All the Subscription Boxes Out There that the PopSugar Box Would Probably be My Absolute Favorite! I Have Never Gotten Any Sub Boxes, except for the 3 Month Subscription to Birchbox Recently & I Really Love & Truly Love Birchbox! I Have Become More Familiar with the Different Brands from Just Subscribing to Your Newsletters & Follow Your Website! So Now I am a Lot More Schooled on Each Kind Sub Box Out There and Although I Can’t Afford One Right Now b/c I Can’t Work at the Moment, it Gives Me an Idea for the Future! The Reason I Like PopSugar Boxes is b/c They Have More of a Broad Range of Things that I am Really Interested in like Make Up, Candles & Fragrance, Stuff for the Home, and My Absolute Favorite Part which is the Books! I am in Bed a Lot lately with Bad Back & Neck Pain So I Do a Lot of Cross Word Puzzles & Reading and it Seems to Calm Me Down, or At Least Distract Me From the Pain for a Little While! So My Favorite Thing in this PopSugar Box is Definitely “The Secret Recipes” Book! Cooking is Another One of My Passions, Although I Haven’t Been Doing a Lot of it Lately but I Still Love it and I Even Have a Book with All My Favorite Recipes in it! I Also Love the Adorably Chic Black Wallet with the Gold Accents; Gold is a Huge Color Right Now in Fashion & Has Become Quite a Trend Lately! I Would be Happy Just to Receive One Item form This Box, So Thanks Again for Your Generosity! I Hope You & Your Family Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I Hope You Have Many Things to Be Thankful for This Year! Have a Blessed Day, Jana

  128. Shannon

    The only thing I don’t love in this box are the wine writers (because I don’t drink wine or have parties in my small place), however, my parents have wine parties and I love the idea of being able to identify your glass with a clearly marked name instead of having to remember if you had the red marker or the dog marker or if that was the previous glass marker from another party the week before. It can get confusing when you are having a good time! On a side note the wallet purse looks super cute and it is vegan friendly!

  129. Jenn L

    I love the purse! The cookbook is great, too.

  130. Sophie

    The purse!

  131. Noelle B.

    I love the clutch (and the notes)

  149. sarah berry

    the small purse is by far the best!

    Amazing stuff. specially the G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix will be most preferable as it is so good for health with so reasonable price.

  165. Liz

    Toss up between the wallet/purse and the hand cream. I covet hand creams in general, and I love the packaging of that one!

  166. Aoife K

    My skin can’t handle the winter weather, so definitely the hand cream! I keep one in each of my purses, the drawer by my bed, my car, my backpack for school, and one by my bathroom sink! Can you say obsessed?

  185. Kim Henrichs

    The Secret Recipes book is my fave!

  186. Judy

    Lol I almost said the purse but then I realized it was your phone case on top of it! So pretty with the gold flecks! Anyway I’d have to say the book is my favorite this month. The purse would be too tiny for me too!
