PopSugar Must Have December 2014 Review

PopSugar Must Have Box
I can't believe that I just late last year discovered subscription boxes.  The value! The surprises!  The cattiness of the review comments!  My love of receiving mail coupled with beauty and home gifts got me sucked in very quickly.  I used sub boxes almost exclusively this past Christmas and I know that these boxes will provide gifts for myself (and friends & family) for another year at least.

I got a great 6 month deal for PopSugar's monthly box.  They are monthly $39 including shipping & tax and have discounts for 3.6.& 12 month subscriptions.

My first box was the December box and I was not disappointed!  It arrived boxed up with  an information card to give details about all the items.

  • The scarf is a soft grey with gold paint splattered throughout.  It is shiny on the one side and a soft silvery matte on the reverse.  The scarf is long enough to wrap around the neck twice.  It is a tight enough weave that it will block out wind but still more of a fashionable rather than functional scarf.  
  • There was also a lovely SparklePop necklace with a large diamond pendant.  The chain is delicate but still looks proportional to the pendant.  I am not much of a costume jewelry person but really love the long length of this necklace.  It does not look at all junky and I have received compliments every time I wear it out.  Great with a solid turtleneck due to the length.  
  • There is a packet of dusty blue card tags.  Um, okay.  Nice but it will most likely spend the next decade in a junk drawer if not given away.
  • I next pulled out the Smashbox lip lacquer in Bordeaux.  A great bright long wearing color.  You can paint it on for a bold statement, but I like a softer lip so I was happy that I could wipe it and blot and it becomes a soft stain with still a pretty berry color that lasts.  
  • I loved the food item that was Williams-Sonoma cupcake mix.  I hate cake but I love having a great housewarming gift on hand for unexpected gift giving.  
  •  The last item that I pulled out was a cute ceramic bowl with a shiny platinum inside.  It is perfect for a small nut or candy dish or can be used unfilled as a decorative item.
Overall I was happy with this box.  I'm so happy that the only meh item is a small package of tags and have gotten use out of everything else in this box.  The total retail value of all the items is $182!

Well thank you for reading this overview and have a great day!
