PopSugar April 2014 Review

I am back on the PopSugar kick!  I signed up for 3 months because I just NEEDED a box fix!  PopSugar Must Have Box is a monthly box that has a wide variety of items that are all so fun to receive!
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette ($36): This is my favorite item in the box!!  I really needed this!  And the colors are great!!
Blueavocado Shopper Reusable Bag (Ivory Roses) ($24.99): This is so cool!  I love it.  But I need to make sure I use it.  Farmers market??
Caldrea Rosewater Driftwood Hand Soap ($10.50): this is really nice soap and I love the smell.
Graphic Image Pocket Notes (Run the World) ($20):  I love this.  My sister uses notebooks in her bag all the time… I am thinking maybe she’d like this.  She says she reads this blog everyday… maybe it’ll be a birthday gift?!
Fresh Pastry Stand Tea Towel Set ($18): I am not sure what I will use these for.  What do you use tea towels for?  Would my 12 year old niece like these?  They don’t really go with my kitchen (but do the Christmas towels still?)… mmmmm but they are totally awesome
Nature Box PopSugar Must Have Mix ($5): A custom created mix for Popsugar with soybeans, almonds, corn, and cranberries… it’s not my favorite.  I like my graze box mixes more.

Thursday Thoughts

I haven’t been posting much this week!!  Sorry… I guess my excuse is I’ve been busy and sick.
This guy!!  We had a great day on Saturday!  Denny’s then Shopping Town Mall.  He road the quarter cars (see the picture)… Here’s the video (He’s yelling Elbie, which is what he calls my sister, his aunt)

Then Saturday night the sickness started… I could sense it coming and boom… full force on both me and NF.
Sunday we spent at the doctor’s office… where we waited for for-ev-errr to be told NF has a cold.  Oh really?  I think I knew that.  Anyone else have this happen to them?  I don’t ever want it to be more, but I wish it was something I could do!  Like other than TLC…. I can’t help but think of the Tylenol commercial, “For everything we do, we know you do so much more”.  But seriously though, thank you Tylenol.  OMG that JUST came on the TV as I wrote it… weirdddd.
Monday, after being at work for two hours, I realized I had a sticker on my pants.
Then I watched the Bachelor… I think I like Nikki the most.
Tuesday… I felt crazy sick and had soup.  And NF stayed home with C.
All of NF’s before bed night products…
Wednesday… I ate Indian food for lunch… which isn’t normal for me.
We spent most of the week like this…
NF has been watching DVDs a lot the past couple weeks.  He calls them D-D-Ds.  So far he’s seen Lion King, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., Monsters University, The Incredibles, Madagascar, and Toy Story 1 and 2…. his favorites are def Finding Nemo and Toy Story.  I REALLY wish it was Spring already…. the darkness and snow is REALLY getting to me.
I am going through Subscription box withdrawal.  SO… I went for it after reading Jen’s Pop Sugar poll… I ordered 3 Must Have Pop Sugar boxes starting March.  I am SO excited.  Then I’ll stop I swear!!  I REALLY hope they are good ones.
OH did anyone else catch the AMAZING Syracuse vs Pitt game the other night???   Tyler Ennis got a 3 pointer to win the game with like 2 seconds left!  WATCH IT!

Pop Sugar Must Have Box Review March 2013

My March 2013 Pop Sugar Must Have Box Review…


Corkatoo Waiter’s Corkscrew: ($12.47)  This was my favorite thing in the entire box.  I loved it!  We even used it already.  I got the red one.


The Laundress – Denim Wash: ($19) I saw other Pop Sugar Reviews and they didn’t get Denim Wash.  I was expecting Delicate Wash… which I’d use.  Denim Wash I guess I’d use… but when do I do a load of JUST jeans.  Since yoga pants have been invented I basically wear them instead of jeans.  Ah I was still excited to get this.  Very cool.


Heather Belle Octagon Tassel Necklace: ($72) I like this necklace!  I’d never spend $72 dollars on it though.  The first time I wore it… IT BROKE.  Nicholas hardly pulled on it and the octagon tassel thing fell right off the chain.  If I really spent $72 on it I’d feel like a foool.  I can fix it by squeezing the link so it doesnt slip out… but I know I’ll be paranoid that it’ll fall off whenever I wear it now.



The New Black Nail Polish 2 set: ($10) I loved this!  I got a metallic orange and red (not the exact colors above).  I immediately painted my toes orange for Syracuse!  I really liked that they came in twos.


Buxom Sculpted Lash Mascara: ($19) Wow!  That brush is cra-zy.  I used it and it seemed to work well.  It doesnt clump on the brush (neither does the bare minerals one I use).  I liked it.

sweater saver

Hollywood Sweater Saver: ($6) So this should remove unsightly pilling from knits, coats and blankets… I haven’t built up the courage or motivation to try it.  I will soon though.  I hope that it works… but I just am pretty skeptical.


Hollywood Fashion Tape: ($8.99) Maybe I’ll use these.  I think I’ll just keep them in my closet – and use them if I need them in a crunch… like getting ready for a wedding.  Or put them in my purse for a wedding to offer someone in the bathroom who is having a difficult time.  I don’t know – but I hope they are put to good use whatever I do with them.


Peeps: ($0.89) I don’t like peeps.  I didn’t like conversation hearts either.  Pshh.

So the total value of the box came to $148.35.  The box costs $35 / month.
