treat yourself: pop sugar musthave box

Last week I posted on Instagram a pic of my first Popsugar Musthave box.  I have never done a monthly box subscription as I just always assumed they were cheesy and would leave you with more crap you don't need.  Then recently on a bachelorette weekend a few friends were raving about the Popsugar box and I knew I had to order it.  I signed up in the middle of August and the September box was already sold out..bummmer...so I will not get my first regular box until next month.  However they also do luxe boxes several times throughout the year and the Fall Luxe box was still available for $100...so I thought I would give it a try.  I figure worst case scenario I would have some extra stocking stuffers out of the way for Christmas.

I mean who doesn't love good snail mail?!  Especially when its a box full of sursies for yourself!


So here is a breakdown of what was in the Fall luxe edition box:

Rachel Zoe Gold Single Knot Ring $75:  I would have really loved this if there was a way to specify your ring size.  I believe they all came in a standard 7 and I am a 5...but I can wear as a pointer finger ring.
Stila Luxe Eyeshadow Palette $45:  I love Stila products...so I enjoyed this one.
Christian Lacroix Notebook $14:  A cute little notebook...although I have so many already..this one is going in the gift closet!
Cynthia Vincent Shopper Bag $88:  There were several patterns you could get for this one. (its also cuter in person!)  I use bags like this for flea market shopping all the time because they can fold up into my purse until needed.
Library of Flowers Bubble Bath $36:  The scent I received was 'The Forest' and it smells like a Christmas Tree!  I love a good bubble bath...I just need a larger tub!
Beuree and Sel Rosemary and Parmesan Cookies $10:  My least favorite thing...after checking out the companies site I wonder why they chose this flavor?!
Goldfaden MD Doctor's Scrub $75:  This exfoliating scrub is probably one of my favorite things in the box...it feels amazing!  Downfall is I have discovered a $75 scrub I will probably continue to buy in the future!

Grand total if I were to go buy these product on my own: $343 (not bad for $100!!)



So while I was impressed with the luxe edition I am excited to receive my first regular monthly box, as I feel this is a real treat for only $35 a month.  You can sign up for monthly renewal or purchase 3, 6, or 12 month packages...GREAT gift idea for girlfriends or a college student (how fun would it be to receive this in college?!)  Even though my first month will be in October I was able to find out what was in the September box to show you an example...I'm pretty bummed I did not get this month!

(Not pictured) Shoptiques.com gift card in various amounts up to $500

Total: $106.67 (plus the amount on gift card)
All for $35!
