Christmas in June?! Nope, it's my Popsugar Must Have June Box!!!

I am so excited and feel like a little kid at Christmas time! I've been waiting patiently and checking the mail daily for this:

This is a Popsugar Must Have box! 

For those of you who have never heard of this, this is similar to a Birchbox. except WAY better (in my humble opinion!) 
This is a compete lifestyle box where you get goodies each month that will vary from fitness/health products, beauty, fashion, and home decor. The boxes are $35.00 a month but you will definitely make up for it and then some. The value of the box each month usually exceeds what you pay by 3-4 times. 
I'm not super knowledgeable about  beauty products but I am wanting to try new things out...I just don't know what to get! SO I've been watching youtube videos about the Birchbox and I have been wanting to order it. Birchboxes cost $10/month and you get a bunch of beauty samples. 
I like Popsugar much better because you get full sized products...and they aren't only beauty products. I like the idea of trying new things that I wouldn't normally know about or even try because it's probably way to expensive and I wouldn't want to buy something if I don't know what it's like. 

Here is what I got in this month's box. I'll list everything under it's designated category...


The fashion item for this month is a Gorjana & Griffin Zuma Scarf. 
I love the colors and the pop of that bright coral. 
This scarf's retail value is $62.00


The beauty item is a Juice Beauty moisturizer that is made with all organic ingredient. It is proven to reduce fine lines and fights signs of aging. It smells very clean and lemony. 
The retail value for this is:$65.00

Along with beauty I also got two samples of the Juice Beauty CC Cream...This is like a BB cream but is supposed to be a 12 in 1 product?! We'll see...

Fitness this month was a workout video. 
This retails at $9.99


For entertainment, I got a hard cover book of Revenge Wears Prada. This seems like a pretty good read. It's supposed to be the sequel to The Devil Wears Prada. I absolutely LOVED that movie so am pretty excited to read this book.
The retail value for this is $25.99

This was interesting!! It is a by an amazing company called Project 7. They give back to a variety of different charities. In this month's box i got some wintergreen mints. For each tray or mints that are purchased (there are 12 tubes in a tray), a person in need will receive one years worth of clean water.

Also got some fit popcorn. Apparently this is supposed to be a guilt free snack. I'm holding out to try this since I want to be hungry for my turkey burger dinner that the hubby is grilling tonight! :D 

SO...I didn't calculate what the food items costed since I don't really know that...but the other products totaled about $163.00. I say that's totally worth it!! 
I'm excited to see what I get next month because I've watched some youtube unboxing videos and they get some pretty neat stuff. I've seen an exercise ball, glass coffee mugs, wide brimmed hats, beach bags, and all other kinds of neat stuff.

I know this post is totally non-teacher related...but if you're interested in seeing what I get in these boxes each month, let me know in the comments!!

Now I'm off to walk my pup who has been waiting so patiently!


  1. That looks like a fun box to get. I get Nature Box and Citrus Lane. I am not going to get the Nature Box anymore, but Love the Citrus Lane box.


  2. Looks like you got a great stash this month! I love the scarf and I really want to read that book this summer! I am so jealous that your puppy waits patiently while you post. Mine is 3 and she has a knack for whine/barking whenever I am posting!

  3. I was thinking about getting one of these subscriptions. Are they the same categories each month; fashion, food, entertainment? And do you buy each month separately or like 3-month or 6-month subscription? Sorry for all the questions! :)
