Ahhhh! I was hoping that my Special Edition PopSugar Must Have Holiday for Her Box would arrive today and it did! Maybe this is my reward for all those special edition boxes that have taken forever to arrive? Whatever it is, I love it.
PopSugar ships via FedEx Smart Post and usually takes about a week to arrive. This box though only took six days. It felt super early though because most people haven’t gotten their box yet (we only just found out spoilers on it last night). Plus, it appeared randomly on my porch (which a bunch of other boxes) this morning before the actual mail came. I think I had SO many packages she dropped them off first for some room on her truck
This Special Edition Box was much smaller than the other ones we have received. I’d say it was in the same size box as out normal monthly PopSugar boxes. Maybe a little bigger but not much!
I was this close to being spoiler free with this box! Not by choice of course though since even if I knew by box was coming in five minutes I’d still look at spoilers. The first look doesn’t show much since everything is all wrapped up, but it’s always fun to unwrap everything. And I could not get it unwrapped fast enough. I had paper flying everywhere. WB thought it was so fun.
The Holiday for Her Special Edition Box information card is a bit different than the standard information card PopSugar sends out. This one folds out lengthwise and just seems fancier you know? Per the information card, this box includes “stunning accessories to a life-changing planner that will help you start 2014 with your organization in check” and goes on to say that it includes “all the treats you never knew you needed”. Here is what was inside:
Must Have Fashion
~Cuyana Elizabeth Infinity Scarf (Black) (colors may vary) ($65): OMG I love this. Like I love this. I could not be happier about this scarf. It’s freezing here in MI and sometimes you just need a cold weather scarf instead of a fancy fun scarf. And this scarf is beyond soft and no super heavy either. It’s made out of 100% baby alpaca (according to their website they get hot with all that fur, so this is a win for them too) and is seriously just amazing. LOVE. My pictures do it no justice!
Must Have Fashion
~Erickson Beamon Rocks Blondie Stone Bangle (~$75) (cannot locate exact style online). Meh. I’m not in love with this bracelet. Although it may work for a holiday party or something along those lines. It’s obviously not an everyday bracelet and isn’t intended to be one. It’s not totally horrible though and I do like it better than I liked the little bags they included in last years PopSugar Luxury Box.
Must Have Home
~Lunares Cheese Paddle With Knife (Navy Blue) (colors may vary) ($69): I don’t know why, but I love this. I have a few cheese display things already, but I don’t care. This is cute. I am going to be all fancy and start using things like this for just B and I.
Must Have Beauty
~Tokyomilk by Margot Elena Body Soufflé (Scent: Chance) (scent may vary) ($40): I expected this to be strong and icky, but I quite like it. And this packaging? OMG to die for. This box / tin is actually what is what the lotion is in and you have to unscrew it to open it. Do not try to pull the lid off for 5 minutes like I tried to. It doesn’t work.
Must Have Home
~Graphic Image 2014 Databook (Silver) (color may vary) ($70): I have my 2014 EC planner so this may end up in the gift pile. It’s got some different things though, so I don’t know, maybe I do need two? If I wrote all my plans in two places, maybe I would be sure never to miss anything?
Must Have Beauty
~Winks by George False Lash Compact (Fullness & Flare No. 2) (style may vary) ($28): I don’t love false eyelashes, but I know the perfect teenage girl who I am going to pass these along to. They seem to get good reviews at Nordstrom and at Birchbox, so I am guessing she’s going to be quite happy with these.
Must Have Food
~Fatty Sundays Peppermint Crunch Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels ($6.95): Yes! I have been wanting to try these and was hoping they’d magically appear at my house. And they did! And they are everything I hoped they would be.
All totaled I came up with a value of $353.95 for the PopSugar Must Have Special Edition Holiday for Her Box! This box retailed for $100 and is long sold out. I am super pleased with it. I LOVE that scarf and would never have discovered it otherwise. I feel like this was money well spent for sure.
If you haven’t received tracking for your box yet and you are wondering how on earth someone else received theirs but yours hasn’t even shipped yet, never fear. No one has gotten a shipping e-mail yet. But you can go into your PopSugar account and grab your “Subscription Number” for this box. And then go to FedEx and select “Track” and then in the drop down menu, select “Track by Reference“. Put your subscription number in for the reference number, plug in your zip code and leave all the other fields blank. You should be able to track your box this way! Works for all PopSugar boxes every month as well.
