POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try for complimentary testing purposes. Full disclaimer details here. #MustHaveBox
Maybe it’s because more and more people are cashing in on this amazing box, so POPSUGAR can make deals with awesome brands, or maybe it’s just luck… but the November 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have Box is perfection. I am in LOVE with everything in this box and I hope you like the photos of how I’ve styled the items in my home. This subscription box had over $160 worth of items in it and you can try it with a special coupon (below) for $34.95. I *highly* recommend thinking about the POPSUGAR Must Have Box as a gift for someone this holiday season. In the meantime, let’s go through all of the perfect items included in this month’s box…
The November 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have Box definitely focused on celebrations, party/holiday essentials, and togetherness. I saw some pictures on Facebook before I got my box, and was insanely excited to get it in the mail, but it honestly blew me away how nice everything was. POPSUGAR also managed to include a few super-sweet discount codes for brands included in the box, which comes in excellent timing for the holiday season.
I was most excited about this bracelet from Kendra Scott. I own a few of her pieces (two necklaces, two dangle earrings) and love the dainty style and ability to totally customize your picks. Kendra Scott is a native Texan, so I learned most about this brand when I moved to Houston nearly three years ago. I think she’s definitely gaining more nationwide popularity, but if you have a chance to visit a Kendra Scott store in your area, it’s a must-do with your mom, sister or girlfriends. So fun. The jewelry is high quality without being obscenely pricey. This rose gold bracelet with an adjustable pull-slide closure and white pearl stone is classic – I can wear it with absolutely anything and I definitely don’t have enough bracelets in my collection.
Considering I’ve talked about how I’m upping my style game lately with improving my jewelry, this came at perfect timing. Elaina Rose Gold Bracelet retails for $50 on kendrascott.com and the box included a 20% off coupon.
I don’t typically get psyched about table runners (who does?), but this one is so elegant! The chambray material and subtle ‘holiday’ wine color is perfect in my home and brings just enough festive feelings to my standard seasonal decor. I can see this complementing many different home styles and look forward to using it for many years to come. It retails for $44 on us. pehrdesigns.com and the box included a 20% off coupon, also.
This is the tiniest palette I’ve ever seen. I think it may even be smaller than those Smashbox palettes in the checkout line at Ulta/Sephora! It’s literally the size of a credit card. Super cute and I love the rubberized packaging. The shades are perfect for a day-to-night look and I love that it included a mix of matte and shimmer – especially that dark navy… what a nice change of pace from black! Stowaway Cosmetics is cruelty-free and I’ll mention the little brush included is very soft. All of Stowaway Cosmetics products are created to be compact and space-saving and this palette retails for $25 on stowawaycosmetics.com. The box included a coupon code for this brand, as well.
The moment I opened the POPSUGAR Must Have Box and saw the runner and this wire bowl, I immediately went to Target and picked up some basic ornaments to put it in for decoration. Such an easy way to add some holiday cheer to your home inexpensively (the ornaments cost me $10 for 20). I love the way it came out and the bowl itself is hand-made! LOVE. The bowl retails for $35 on alicejanegoods.com.
Whoever was responsible for curating the aesthetic of this box is a genius. These cute party picks were the perfect touch for a family/friend gathering. Can you just see a fruit and cheese tray with these picks on the fabulous runner with the festive bowl!? Me, too. They’re nice and affordable, as well, retailing for $8 on shopmerimeri.com.
Last, but not least, this salty/sweet popcorn is the perfect addition to your party planning session (or a warm, cozy Netflix night). Because of my dumb metal braces, I couldn’t try this snack but my husband gave it two thumbs way up. A nice change of pace from those standard popcorn tins scattered all over your office… pick up a few of these bags for your coworkers or for your kid’s teachers as part of a holiday gift! At $2.99 for a generous size package on oogiesnacks.com, no one will be disappointed (and neither will your wallet).
Total subscription cost: $39.95
