PopSugar Must Have Box August 2013

popsugaraugust

PopSugar Must-have box is definitely one of my favorite subscriptions. Every month they send me a box filled will full size  products and deluxe samples that is usually over $100 worth of a variety of beauty, fashion, snacks, home, reading, and more. It’s $35 a month- but you can get your first box for $30 using the code Refer5 at https://musthave.popsugar.com/

Here’s what was in this month’s Popsugar box:

necklace

Gorjana open circle necklace // retail value $65
This is the 1 year anniversary gift that was included in the box! It’s cute and has a great length!

“This simple, yet sophisticated piece is perfect for everyday wear. We’d style this with a cute day dress for a weekend with friends or everyday workwear.” – PopSugar

stack

bentgo

Bentgo All-in-one Stackable Lunch Box // retail value $19.99
I’ve been wanting to buy this for a while! So happy they included this in the August box! It’s stackable and the utensils are in the box, how cute is this?!

“Even if you’re not kicking odd a new school year, there’s no time like the present to try out a new lunch routine. This Bentgo meal-storage container can keep your lunch well-organized and offers a great, eco-friendly way to eat healthy every day.” – PopSugar

ddaily

May designs weekly agenda notebook // retail value $17

I absolutely love this! I would rather have an agenda that I can write in verses an electronic agenda. I love how bright and happy this notebook is! They included a promo code to get either $5, $50, or $500- mine was worth $5.

“There’s only so much electronic calendars can do, and we’re still lost without our good old-fashioned weekly agenda stashed away in our bag everywhere we go.” – PopSugar

lulah

Lulah body wash // retail value $11.25
I’ve never heard of this brand, but I love trying new things! Popsugar included a 20% off promo code for a Lulah purchase at http://www.lulah.com. It also looks adorable in my shower! It smells so good!

What’s not to love about this Lulah body wash? It smells amazing, creates a luxurious lather to keep your skin clean and fresh, and is all wrapped up in cute packaging to brighten up your shower.” – PopSugar

apple

Lunares apple bowl // retail value $20?
How cute is this?! I love apples, and this is going to be a great to hold some of my jewelry! It can also be used as a snack bowl too, but I think it’s simply too beautiful to be used for food.

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away! This apple bowl may not be keeping you healthy, but it’s a great decorative addition to any desk, entryway table, or tablescape.” – Popsugar

grannyapples

Naturebox Granny Smith Apples // retail value $4

I love healthy snacks like this, but I didn’t love these. The texture was horrible, maybe it was just me? The eco-friendly bag was a nice touch, but some of the paper from the bag ended up on the apples . Popsugar teamed up with NatureBox and included a promo code for a 50% off promo code for my first NatureBox if I wanted to try it.

“We teamed up with these amazing monthly subscription NatureBox to bring you this healthy snack of apple rings. With no added sugars, these are perfect to enjoy when you need a quick treat in the middle of the day or when you’re on the go.” -PopSugar

preclean

Dermalogica PreCleanse and Special Cleansing Gel // retail value $15?
I haven’t tried this brand, but I’m always excited to try new things! If I like it, PopSugar included a 20% off promo code for me! skincare is so important to me and I love trying out

“Meet the two-step process that will change your skin regimen. First up is Dermalogica’s PreCleanse, which is an oil-based, water-soluble cleanser that rids skin of oil-based debris and pollutants. It’s formulated with plant oils. So it won’t clog your pores and will leave your skin ready for the cleansing gel.” -PopSugar

Verdict// I loved this box so much! I think that Popsugar does a great job of picking things that I will actually use! This box was  valued over $100 and I think it’s worth the $35 per month!

XOXO,

Erin

Popsugar Must Have box July 2013

Happy 1st Birthday Popsugar Must Have box! Popsugar is definitely one of my favorite subscription boxes. I love that they include a little bit of everything! From must have beauty, fashion, home, food, fitness, books and more. I really don’t mind spending the money on this box because the value of the products in the box has been over $100 every time I’ve gotten the box! I’m a sucker for lifestyle boxes.

You can also check out my review of last month’s Popsugar Must Have box HERE . You can use the PROMO CODE:  REFER5 to get $5 off your first box! You can go to the Popsugar Must Have website to signup for the August box.

july box

I always enjoy the product card that comes with every box! Loving the Summer theme this month!

july popsugar note

Let’s get started on what was in my box:

Baublebar rose gold

Baublebar // Rose Double Curb Chain Value $28

I don’t even know what to say about this. I love this Baublebar necklace, but unfortunately it looks ridiculous on me. I will be using the 20% off coupon they included to pick up a necklace I have been looking at for a while. I will continue to look for something adorable to pair this necklace with. I also received a 20% off a Baublebar purchase. I will probably be using this to pick up this beauty that I’ve been drooling over: Neon Alaqua Bib

supergoop

Supergoop! // SPF 30 anti-aging city sunscreen serum Value $42

I can never have enough sunscreen. Although I do love a good tan, I don’t want to look like an old leather bag when I get older! I love that this sunscreen is Paraben, Fragrance, and Oxybenzone free.

On the Popsugar card:
“It’s the middle of the Summer, and while our tans maybe be coming along nicely, it’s still crucial to keep ourselves protected against sun damage. Supergoop! Is a superhero of sunscreen that goes beyond protection to repair and moisturize your skin.”

mighty leaf

Mighty Leaf Iced Tea // Ginger Peach Iced Tea Value $25?

I love Iced tea and I love peaches so this is win/win for me!On the website it said that each Ginger Peach tea pouch was worth $6.25 individually and I received 4 pouches. This is perfect for Summer time and I’m really happy this was included in the box!

On the Mighty Iced Tea box it says:
“We are designers of the ultimate artisan tea experience. Our personal touch is our devotion to the art and perfect of hand blending whole leaf teas served in out crafted eco-friendly pouch. Refresh and savor your own fresh-brewed iced tea without wasteful bottles”

ice

Tovolo king // cube ice tray in fuchsia  Value $7
I love getting cute things for the house like this! This will go perfectly with my iced coffee or the Mighty leaf iced tea that was included in the box! The larger ice cubes melt slower, so your drink will stay cold longer!

NCLA AS IF

NCLA  //As If! nail polish Value $16

I love this purple. I own a variety of different pastel lavenders but this one is completely different. I loved that in one coat it was completely opaque! I didn’t have any issues with streaking and I really thought the brush did a great job painting my nails without making a huge mess like I usually do.

On the Popsugar card:
“Colorful nails are a must this season, and pastel purple is our pick for July. The great thing about pastels is they work all year long and add a bit of ladylike color to your look.”

hannahmax
Hannahmax // Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip All Natural Crunchy Cookie Chips Value $2

I’m not too bit on chocolate, and I usually hate dark chocolate. I tried these though and they’re surprisingly sweet! I actually really like them, they’re not bitter and there’s no nasty after taste. I was ready to hate them honestly. My toddler also loved these, so I will definitely trying other flavors! The cookie chips were completely crushed when they got to me so that kind of sucked, but other than that they were great! I love that there is no Trans Fats, no preservatives, no GMOs, No artificial flavors or colors.

I loved this box! This box was worth over $100 and I know I will use everything in this box.  I love that there is a lot of variety and high value in each box that I received. What did you think of this month’s box?

XOXO,

Erin

Hello Three day weekend!

Hey guys!

I haven’t wrote a post in a few days and just wanted to say I’m not dead! I really hope all of you had an amazing 4th of July! I spend it with my little one and we enjoyed doing Sparklers and snakes! I know what you’re thinking, “She’s such a thrill seeker!”. Haha okay, well maybe not. I really wished we could’ve went down to the beach but I knew it was going to be CRAZY!

This week has been incredibly chaotic and crazy. I work at an international airport in the Washington D.C. area and with the 4th of July holiday that just passed, work has left me completely drained!  I love working with people, but when you work at an airport people are either in great moods or horrible moods — there is no happy middle. Summer time we see a lot more passengers than normal. This is my second summer at the airport and it’s even crazier because we haven’t been able to hire new people due to the economy. I work part time and I only have to work Friday-Monday so I can’t really complain. Hello three day weekend!

tumblr_mgsxc4Yq301rdaxyho1_500_large

While I was at work, I looked at my phone and received an email from Erin @ Living in Yellow and I won one of her amazing giveaways! I was so ecstatic, especially after the day I was having. Let’s just say it started off horrible (i.e.Left my wallet at home and realized while I was half way to work, at the gas station.)  I don’t know how she does it, but her blog is so addicting! I definitely have blog envy and I love reading her posts about her blogging tips and her life. Go Check out her blog. Seriously, check it out!

I do have some exciting things coming up too! I will be doing a review on the one-year anniversary box from Popsugar! I’m looking forward to the July box and can’t wait to share it with you all! I should also be reviewing the Fabfitfun VIP box as well. I also have been working with some great companies and will be reviewing some new products and boxes soon! I also will be starting a weekly post about my weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey! Any suggestions are welcome!

I will be doing a giveaway soon!  I really want to thank all of the people that follow my blog, Twitter and Facebook page! It will be beauty products, stationary, gift card, and some other amazing products! It will be available for my US readers, I would love to do an international giveaway in the future! I have been blogging for three months and I’m completely hooked! I love all of the new friends I have met while blogging! While I do love all of my friends, It’s nice to have people that I can talk about beauty products and subscription boxes, and etc. without driving my friends nuts!

Has anyone been watching Dexter?! Whoa! I watched the last two episodes and I’m so sad that this will be the last season! I really think Dexter might die this season at the end. Maybe I’m just being crazy, but I think that someone will end up killing him. Maybe the Doctor in the new season? Anyone else feel like she’s also a killer? And a total 360 for Deb’s character! I’m glad that this last season is going out with a BANG! What did you think?

Lazy, rainy days

Hello There!

Hopefully the weather is a lot nicer where you are. Right now it looks like it wants to rain and the humidity is intense. The sky looks so depressing! I had planned to do some hiking today but I think that’s not going to happen now. I’m currently sitting indoors, looking out the window and enjoying my homemade iced coffee (thanks to the Samoa flavored coffee creamer!!!!) I’m seriously in love with the coconut & caramel flavor! I have gotten some great news about some of my subscription boxes today too!

The Summer FabFitFun VIP boxes will begin to ship next week (Finally!). They initially were supposed to ship around June 20th and honestly I don’t know what happened but I’m excited to get my first box! They just emailed me today to tell me that boxes were going to ship next week and that they would be charging my account soon. This will be FabFitFun’s second box and they ship every 3 months and cost $49.99. Every season there is a new box.  The boxes feature beauty, fashion, fitness, and wellness. The items are picked by Giuliana Rancic  and the FabFitFun team. I read a lot of reviews of people that were not satisfied with their spring VIP boxes. I’m taking a gamble with this box but I really hope this month will be a lot better. The only thing I don’t like is that their website is going through a lot of construction and I have had problems logging in. Fortunately, the customer service team has been awesome and has answered pretty fast. To order your own box go to https://vip.fabfitfun.com/

Popsugar Must Have Box June 2013

Hello Sunshine!

My June Popsugar Must have box arrived yesterday and I was so excited to see it waiting for me after work! My pictures really don’t do it justice.

056

The front page of the description booklet that came with the box, I love that it explained everything in the box and why it was chosen for the box.

June 2013 pop sugar must have box

Here’s a detailed look at what was in this amazing box!

Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger retail price $25.99

I’m so excited to actually read this book! It also came with a bookmark from shopstyle.com . This is going to be perfect for sitting poolside or in the comfort of my air-conditioned home. It’s only early June and the humidity is killing me! It get’s so humid here that as soon as you walk out of the door, your hair starts to frizz and you feel sticky (Not very glamorous!)  I watched the movie “Devil Wears Prada” and loved it but never read the book. You can read the book sample in the July issue of Cosmopolitan out right now!

(I just spotted this book at my local Target and it was on sale for $18.99)
Revenge wears prada

Juice Beauty Stem Cell Repair MoisturizerRetails for $65.00

Juice Beauty is becoming one of my favorite companies for skincare. I got the Juice Beauty Apple peel in my May Birchbox and absolutely fell in love with it. This Moisturizer has a pump so you’re not digging your fingers into the tub and not contaminating the ingredients that makes it work! It has a citrus smell that I’m loving and a instantly hydrated my face as soon as I used it. I seriously wish you could smell this over the computer screen, it’s smells amazing!!!

The description that came on the card says “This rich Juice Beauty moisturizer utilizes its own blend of fruit stem cells infused with vitamin C and grape seed. It’s made with organic ingredients and proven to reduce fine lines and fight signs of aging plus it smells spectacular.”

+ 2 Juice Beauty CC cream samples in two different shades, Natural glow (light) and Warm glow (medium)

The description card says: “We also adore the Juice Beauty CC cream, so as an added bonus, we included samples of the two different shades Juice Beauty makes, so there’s one to match you and one to give to a friend!”

078

This is the top of the Juice beauty Moisturizer with the pump:

And the two Juice Beauty CC creams included:

082

Gorjana & Griffin- Zuma Scarf -Retails for $62

Also included was a $25 off a purchase at Gorjana & Griffin with no minimum purchase! I will definitely be using this and will be including this with the value of my box because I don’t have to spend any money in order to use it.

This scarf is gorgeous and my pictures don’t do it justice. Realistically, I don’t think I would’ve paid $62 for this, but I’m thrilled it came in my box! It has nautical navy blue and white strips and an accent pop of neon coral.

The description card it reads: “It’s cute and versatile and can be used as a head scarf or a sarong to cover up your bikini and hit the beach. Pair with a t-shirt and jeans for daytime, or let it add some personality to your go-to sundress all season long”

072

Hard Candy Fitness DVD- Addicted to Sweat 4 retails for  $19.99

I normally wouldn’t buy a workout video, but I’m glad this was in the box. It gives me no excuse to skip my workout when I can do it at home. I love throwing variety into my workout routine.

The description card reads :Want to know the secrets behind one of Madonna’s go-to workout routines? Use a chair and this DVD- and get ready to sweat. This intense but fun workout is aimed to sculpt, tone, and tighten the entire body.”

084

Project 7 Quench the Thirsty – Wintergreen mints retail for $1.79

I’m excited to learn about this brand of mints! Not only were these mints tasty and the packaging is adorable, I think it’s amazing that Popsugar added this into the box because it’s for a great cause. We definitely take for granted the fact that clean drinking water is so readily available for us. I couldn’t believe it when I read that more than one billion people worldwide lack a basic supply of clean water, and more than 1.8 million children die each year from water- and sanitation- related diseases.

The description card reads : “Project 7 is an amazing company that makes products that give back to a variety of charities in America and abroad. We picked these wintergreen mints, which benefit a project to bring clean drinking water to communities around the world. By choosing Project 7 Quench the Thirsty products, we are helping to provide clean water to people in need.”

075

Popcorn, Indiana – Fit  Sea Salt Popcorn $2-3 value ?

I thoroughly enjoyed this snack while watching the Bridesmaids for the millionth time!

It was really lite, and I’m really glad they didn’t put some crazy flavor in the box because I really loved the flavor of this popcorn. I love trying new healthy snacks. I think adding new snacks to your diet really make dieting enjoyable when you’re not stuck eating the same bland rice cake day after day. I’ve lost about 55lbs since October 2011 and it’s been really hard not to go back to old habits. I will be picking up another bag of these. They had a really light flavor but weren’t bland either.

The description card reads: “With 40 calories or fewer per cup, this is an addictive snack you certainly don’t have to feel guilty about. It’s all natural and gluten-free with zero trans fat. Try it to perk up your afternoon, or bring it out when you watch the big summer blockbuster.”

069

The total estimated value for this Popsugar must-have box was $202.00 (with the $25 gift card included)

I paid $30 for this box, with the promo code ” Refer5 ” . The box is $35 a month and there is an estimated value of $100 or more each month in the box. The box has a variety of things from beauty, home goods, food, books, fitness and a lot more. Most of the items in the box are Full-sized or Deluxe sized. This is the one box I get most excited about getting every month!

Next month Popsugar Must Have box turns one years old! I can’t wait to see what they’ll have in their boxes! This is the perfect time, in my opinion to subscribe if you’re going to. I had been eyeing this box for awhile and every month when a new box would come out I would be kicking myself for not getting it. In my opinion this box has a lot to offer and it seems to just be getting better. Right now you can use the PROMO CODE: Refer5 and get $5 off you’re first box! You can go to this link to order your first box: https://musthave.popsugar.com/  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

Do you subscribe to Popsugar Must have? What’s your favorite box that you’ve gotten so far?

XOXO-

Erin

sc-135-402-371

Gorjana & Griffin  Zuma Scarf  $62.00 value

I am in love with this scarf! This alone is worth twice what I paid for the box (I paid $30 with the promo code refer5).

(Also a coupon code to the Gorjana & Griffon website for $25.00 off your order.) I was checking out the website and they have some really amazing accessories and jewelry so it won’t be hard for me to use the coupon there.

Project_7_mints_large-137x300

Project 7 Quench the thirsty mints $1.77 value
