Pop Sugar Must-Have Box - January Edition

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

I decided to start off the year by cancelling a bunch of my beauty box subscriptions.  To be honest, i was getting bored with the tiny samples of random stuff I'd never use!  Sure, some of them were only $10 but what good is a $10 box when my favorite part was the actual cardboard box right?  A couple of months ago, i saw Abby's PopSugar Must Have Box (Always Abby - go check out her gorgeous blog BTW) and fell in love!  I immediately decided to join.  The price is a bit on the steep side when you consider it's a monthly thing ($39.95 although boxes are valued at up to $250) but when i realized how incredible the boxes were, i decided that I'd much rather cancel my less expensive boxes and splurge on one I'd really enjoy getting!  In fact, last month's box was so incredible that I'm kind of bummed i didn't have a chance to show you but between the holiday madness and my trip to Paris (yes i still owe you a post on that), i just didn't have time.  I did however wear the gorgeous scarf that came in my December box while in Paris and it looked amazing!

When my January box arrived i literally screamed with excitement as i pulled each item out (i kid you not). My little girls giggled at my silliness but i realized at this very moment that i made the best decision for me!  I don't even miss my other subscriptions!  So without further ado... check out just how amazing my January box is!  

The Jack + Lucy winter hat is absolutely adorable.  In fact, this style was all over the Parisian sidewalks when i visited a few weeks ago.  I actually purchased a similar version there which you've probably seen on my instagram.  It's a nude rose which sparkles and a huge fur pom pom.  I love these and am sure i will be rocking this one often!

Seeing this yoga hand towel brought me back to my hot yoga days.  I loved hot yoga and actually have this towel in the yoga mat size.  I love the color of this hand towel and will be sure to put it to good use at the gym... or perhaps, back in hot yoga class. I need to get back soon... i really miss it though my schedule hasn't allowed me to get back as often.

I love great accessories and while I've never actually tried Skin Jewel Tattoos, I'm totally psyched to get in on the action!  These look so so pretty!

I already have and love these delicious eye pads by ToGoSpa.  I purchased them while in LA to use the night before my on camera interview for the IT Cosmetics commercial.  They worked like a dream to calm my dark circles and puffiness.  I use them all the time and was excited to see that i don't have to replenish this month! Score!

I'm already a huge fan of First Aid Beauty so i was particularly happy to see their Ultra Repair Cream in this month's box.  I've already put this baby to good use and am loving the way my skin is feeling.  No more dry patches of skin for me!  Love this!

If you know me, you know i can't function without my coffee.  I drink it black and if i could have it injected into my veins, i would!  OK... clearly I'm over dramatizing but you get the idea!  This super cute reusable cup is not only functional but gorgeous!  Can't wait to use it!

OK so i love that in every box there's always a yummy treat!  This month we sampled Nature Valley Granola Protein in Peanut Butter N' Dark Chocolate.  I'm a huge peanut butter fan so i loved the way this tasted.  My daughter Mimi who happened to be next to me when i opened this box wanted in on the granola action so we enjoyed this sweet treat together while oooohing and aaaahhing at the yumminess!

Overall I'm super pleased with my box and can't wait to see what's in store for February!  Like what you see?  Sign up to get your very own PopSugar box! Plus get $5 off your first box with code MUSTHAVE5!!! I promise you will not be disappointed!
