The first Must Have box of 2013 arrived today! I was notified two days prior via email, which is great because then I sit here in anticipation of the arrival of the box. When it arrived, I noticed right away that it was a bit larger than previous boxes. Once I opened it up, I knew exactly why.
The bulk of the box is due to the 65 cm stability ball from Merrithew. I already own an exercise ball like this and hardly ever use it. However, mine is a different brand, and I don’t know if there’s a reason why this particular ball is “The Professional’s Choice.” I’ll have to test it out and see if there’s a difference! Hopefully the 65 cm one is the right size for the exercises in the workout included in the box.
Must Have – January 2013
Must Have Fitness * Merrithew Stability Ball
Must Have Fashion * The Remix TimeBomb Watch
Must Have Beauty * Epicuren Discovery Lip Balm
Must Have Food * Popbar Hot Chocolate on a Stick * Jet-Puffed Vanilla Mallow Bits
Extras * Think Thin Bars * Casetagram
I don’t like the contents of this box as much as previous months. Perhaps it’s the abundance of snack items when the only one I’d enjoy are those Popbars?
While I AM getting the value as promised, this month’s items are not as appealing/useful to me. The Remix TimeBomb watch is neat, but I don’t really wear watches. You can create cases for your gadgets with your Instagram and Facebook photos using Casetagram. The gift certificate is a $15 discount on any of the cases they make. Unfortunately, I don’t own any of the gadgets on their list, and $15 off doesn’t put a big enough dent for me to order a case for someone else. Glad it’s an extra, rather than something that counts towards the box.
PopSugar is an online lifestyle brand targeting women between the ages of 18 and 39. The Must Have box curated by its editors really struck a chord with me.
