First look! I was stuck at work SUPER late (I left at 9PM and got back around 9:30PM) and was so sad about that because I knew this box was waiting for me at home. But hey, at least I had the time to take photos and write up this review, so it’s not such a sad ending after all. :p
Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Sea Salt & Almond minis Pouch ($5) – This was a special extra! I’m actually really happy to see this because CHOCOLATE. Also because it’s nice to have individually wrapped things to take to work so that I don’t have to use containers or plastic baggies. Ghirardelli is always delicious and I’m sure these new minis are no exception.
Nike Gift Card ($20) – THIS. IS. AWESOME. I know that $20 won’t really get you much on Nike.com but I don’t care. There are cool t-shirts and random football stuff I’m totally looking at. It’s just a shame that Nike doesn’t sponsor either of my teams so I can’t get any of their gear. But I’m totally using this anyway. Oh, and this also counts as a special extra. 😀 I’ve got to say that their special extras this month are awesome!
BEST PART? FREE TWO-DAY SHIPPING TOO!
I got this awesome CR7 shirt for just $7.15. 😀 SO AWESOME. I love v-necks. I love grey t-shirts. And Cristiano Ronaldo is Cristiano Ronaldo. Enough said. 😉
Nicole Miller Stereo Earbuds ($20) – I love getting earphones that are “cheap” so that I don’t feel bad about losing them later on. These are a really gorgeous blue and I’m hoping that they’re comfortable! (it does come with three ear-cap sizes, so hopefully I’ll find the pair that is just right). Two cool facts about this pair of earphones: that they interlock and there’s a microphone! I actually need a pair like these because they’re going to be perfect for work.
Oribe Superfine Purse Size Hair Spray ($21.50) – Oribe is supposed to be amazing and despite the fact that I’ve received two different Oribe products already from Nina Garcia’s box and Sample Society… I still haven’t gotten around to trying either of them and now I have a third product. XD I don’t really use hair spray so I’m not sure if I’ll keep this, but from what I’ve heard, Oribe’s products smell fantastic!
Letter C Design Gold Foil Arrow Pencils ($5) – I really only use mechanical pencils now, but these are super cute and I love that they came with a pencil sharpener! I actually think that I might just use these as decoration (as in, putting them in a pen/pencil cup and setting it out on my desk) or just keep them in their packaging until I actually use them or think of something more creative. I love stationary so pencils are all right by me!
Rifle Paper Co. Garance Dore Assorted Girls Set ($18) – These are some fancy cards! And as I said above, I love stationary so these are great. 😀 They’re just artsy and hipster enough to be cool to send to friends, haha. Since the holidays are coming up, these will be great because I never remember where I placed last year’s cards.
Urban Remedy Almond Brownie ($6) – This doesn’t look the most appetizing… and oh god it tastes so freaking terrible. I took a small bite and felt pretty sick. I’m sorry but I don’t think I can ever endorse something like this. I appreciate the fact that Popsugar is trying to include something that is healthier than your usual dessert, but this is vile. Seriously disgusting. There’s a weird sour/salty taste that makes you feel like you’re eating something spoiled/rotten and the smell is weird too. Thankfully the aftertaste isn’t horrible or else I’d be chewing gum right now.
Oh and there’s an included $10 off of $50 gift card code to Urban Remedy, but I’m definitely NOT using it.
Tilo Scarves Modal Gradation Scarf in Raisin ($125) – GORGEOUS. Absolutely gorgeous. I love this scarf so much. It’s perfect for fall and so soft. The colors are beautiful and the scarf itself is wonderfully lightweight. I don’t know what else to say about this scarf except for the fact that I’m going to be wearing it a lot this fall/winter. It can pretty much go with any outfit and I think it’s a great addition to anyone’s closet. 😀
The September 2014 Popsugar Must Have Box!
Overall value: $220.50
Overall enjoyment: Um, I love this box. 😀 Everything was awesome except for the brownie, but that’s okay because there was a second food item in the box so the brownie is forgiven. I might end up trading the hair spray, but I’m definitely keeping everything else! I love that they had two stationary items and a pair of earphones and a scarf. And the best part for me? No make up items! I’m not sure if I love this box or last month’s box more but I do know that I love Popsugar!
