PopSugar Must Have Box – May 2013

2013 has been a whirlwind, and May is almost up! The Must Have box arrived a little later than normal for me, so I wasn’t as motivated to give an update on the contents since there are all sorts of unveilings across the internet. This particular box is “party season” themed, and I love it!

PopSugar May 2013My hat collection is small, so I’ll gladly add this hat from Kooringal. It’s perfect for keeping the sun off my face and those freckles at bay when I forget to reapply that sunscreen. The color I received was dark gray, so it really does go with just about anything.

As for everything else, I am excited about The Modern Margarita mixer set. It’ll probably have its time on the blog as a Saturday Swig. Whether mocktail or cocktail form, that’s to be determined. The beauty products look great, and I can’t wait to see if those conversation cards are any good. Love Mindy Kaling, so probably?

The gripe I have about “discount cards” in these boxes are that they aren’t worth anything to you unless you use them. The $30 off Charm & Chain is great if you were already planning on making a purchase because there’s nothing for that price, so if you wanted to use the card, you’re at least $30 in the hole unless you decide to buy the one bangle or ring that is $30. Even then, you’ll pay shipping and tax too. I would very much rather they send me a piece of jewelry instead.

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.

  • I fell for PopSugar’s “50% off if you come back to us!” offer, but I was too late – by the time I tried to use it, it had expired (TWO DAYS LATER). I was so bummed. Every time I read your updates I think about coming back, but next month I may really do it… This box looks like a good one!

    • Oh no! :( This one was pretty good. I hope the next one is too. The last one was so MEH, but I have the subscription through the summer…

  • love-haight cupcakes

    This must have box is a brilliant idea! I just signed up!

    • Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. It’s like having a birthday surprise every month. :P

  • This box was a redemption box for me, and so I’m not quitting just yet. I wore the hat at the beach in Florida this weekend and I looked through the cards and like them already.

    • In love with the hat. I dropped it into the river the other weekend and made Ryan retrieve it. :P
