POPSUGAR provided us with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.
We recently became a part of the PopSugar Select fitness bloggers. If you don't know what PopSugar is yet I just have to say check them out. It's an endless weaving forum of sites ranging from fitness, to food, to pop culture. They didn't tell me to say that or anything - it's just straight up, legitimately an awesome site which is why we paired up with them. They couldn't just knock it out of the park in the blog/web world, that wasn't enough amazing. So they also came up with a super fun and fantastic subscription service.
Let's take a moment to pause and talk about my love for subscription services. For my birthday this year my sister got me a subscription to Birchbox, which got me hooked. This is when I learned getting things in the mail that aren't bills or junk is a delight. Especially if they are fun grown up things to play with - like make up and clothes. It's a good thing I'm on a tight budget over here or else I would be subscription service junkie. Instead I mostly admire them from afar, window shopping what my mailbox could potentially be full of.
PopSugar was so kind to send us a peek into their monthly subscription service known as their Must Have Box. These will run you about $40 a month which seems a bit steep, however you get your money's worth.
When I opened up the box the first thing I saw was Emily Giffin's new book, The One and Only. I had been eyeing it on Amazon for the last month and got a little giddy when I saw a fresh hardcover in the box. (Also, hardcover books. It's been a while. I almost forgot how magical you are to hold and smell.) I'm so happy to have a summer read on hand. I cracked it open just this evening and read the first few pages. Can't wait to dive in further.
A gorgeous Turkish towel came tightly rolled up next to book - a perfect beachy compliment. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with a Turkish towel. It's way too pretty to dry anything off with. The only source of moisture that I could come up with that this towel is worthy of absorbing is a little Ryan Gosling schvitz. But please, I'm open to other suggestions - feel free to comment below.
As I dug deeper into the box I discovered a silky citrusy lotion by Sachajuan and three adorable hair ties by Lollie's Basics (the material is made of swimsuit wear so they won't get stretched out and will dry easily if you take them for a dip, I imagine.)
The winner of best packaging in the box goes to You Smell. I mean, look at this box. (You can also read the top text which mentions unicorns and other things I adore on our Instagram feed.) Love the font, love the colors - all of this wonderful design for lemon flavored handy wipes. Creative packaging rocks my socks off.
To top off the box was a gift card to Native Union, which for a nerdy girl like me was a treat. They sell gorgeous iPhone cases and also classic phone handsets that connect to your cell phone via Bluetooth for extra ridiculous communication. I kind of want to walk down the street talking on one of these.
And finally, hidden in a protective sleeve were potato chips. Let's be real. I dug into those chips ASAP. They were BBQ. They were delish. They were gone in two minutes. I didn't have time to check if they were healthy. I'm sure they were. Totally healthy.
