PopSugar Must Have Box – January 2013

PopSugar Must Have Box - January 2013The 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.

I am pretty excited about the lip balm from Epicuren though. In the December Luxury box, there was a lotion from Epicuren that I fell in love with. I use it EVERY day!

    that’s still an awesome pack to try out new things! I’m going to check right now if PopSugar is available in Canada too.

    • I want them to come to Canada as well. I’m envious of all the wonderful stuff Suki is posting.

  • I’m all sorts of dry lately. #balms #moisturizers.

    I’m a sucker for those subscription boxes! I love them!

  • I’m really liking this month’s box, which is funny, as we rarely seem to agree on them! I did think it was a lot of fun food one box, though. I don’t have a medicine ball anymore, & I’d been planning to buy one soon, so this one was much appreciated & welcomed, & I’ll probably wear the watch, even though mine is white (ughhh) instead of ANY other color! I haven’t checked out Casetagram yet but like the idea of it! Still so glad you turned me on to this box.

    • Next time I open a box and love it, I’m going to expect you to hate it. ;-)

      I got a black watch. Do you want to trade? My email is brandip805@gmail.com

  • Those hot chocolate on a stick bars look amazing. I would love this package.

    • I’m going to try them soon! It’s been hot chocolate weather over here.

  • I got my box yesterday and I’m pretty pleased with it. I’m not much of watch person either, but I might give it a try and I’ve been wanting a stability ball, so getting one in this box actually worked out pretty well. And I can’t wait to try the hot chocolates. It’s snowing here today so I might break into one later…

    • Snow definitely calls for hot chocolate! :)
