Do not be fooled: these are not just granola bars. These Fiber One Meal Bars are amazefestusa. I got them fo free on BzzAgent and they really do keep you full and satisfied! I’ve had both the chocolate peanut butter and strawberry greek yogurt for a quick breakfast at work and I’ve enjoyed them both. Pair them with my pretty salad in a jar and you have yourself a nice healthy breakfast and lunch! Go get you some good fo you munchies gurl!
Pop, pop, pop sugarrrrr! Here is a peak at my Valentine’s Day gift to myself - an absolutely amazing box this month!
Gorjana Brooks Jewelry Roll (Must Have Fashion) - $45 - This is SUCH a good idea. The inside of mine (the pink one) isn’t black but that’s the only photo I could find. You put your jewelry in the little zippers and it stays nice and neat while you travel. I have been using other small bags (read: Ipsy) but I love how I can separate necklaces from earrings and bracelets with this. I also got a $25 off a purchase at gorjana-griffin.com and have been eyeing some cute earrings on there! The setup on the site reminds me of Bauble Bar - free shipping and returns. This is also the same site that featured the Bali Bead Bracelet in my October box that I wear everyday! I’ve gotten to a point where I never take it off, even when I shower which probably isn’t very good but I love it! So small and simple.
Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum (Must Have Beauty) - $23.99 - I absolutely love the way this stuff smells. I was hesitant to put an oil on my face, but it is really hydrating and doesn’t break me out. I found it funny that I’ve also gotten this brand in another monthly subscription box - my October Ipsy Glam Bag. I’ve liked both products I’ve tried Nourish Organic!
K Hall Design Peony Travel Candle (Must Have Home) - $11 - This candle smells OUT OF THIS WORLD good. So fresh and floral. I am going to make those 20 hours count when burning this!
ModelCo Lip Pops Duo Lip Gloss and Lipstick (Must Have Beauty) - $39 - I’m not a huge fan of the color i got in this. It’s a little too muddy brown for my complexion, but I’ll find a way to make it work with another base or pencil. Also I wanted to shout out to POPSUGAR customer service because my lipstick side came smushed into the cap and they are sending me another one - thank you!
Sugarwish Mini Red Cinnamon Hearts (Must Have Food) - $9 - How freaking adorable are these hearts?! They taste really good too - just like Big Red gum - insert Bring it On cheerleading reference here. I put them into a little glass square dish I have from a repurposed mini candle. When the candle wouldn’t burn anymore, I popped it in the freezer for a few hours and then broke up the pieces to get them out. Then I used some rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball to loosen the glue from the bottom and pop the wick off and to get off any left over wax residue. Clean the rest of the jar with hot soapy water and you have an upcycled glass jar! I do this with almost all the big three wick Bath & Body Works candles I get and I keep everything from M&Ms and makeup brushes to nail polishes and q-tips in them around my apartment. I also got a 20% off coupon for a Petite Sugarwish when you use “PSMHB” through May 31, 2014 at Sugarwish.com - feel free to use if you want!
NCLA Rodeo Drive Royalty Nail Polish (Must Have Beauty) - $16 - This is a beautiful creamy red color. Definitely trying the next time I do my own nails!
Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash (Special Extra) - Approx $3 - This body wash was truly a special extra. It smells SO GOOD and I actually really needed a body wash, how did you know POPSUGAR?!
TOTAL APPROX VALUE OF FEBRUARY: $146.99 - Happy Valentine’s to me!!
Here is link to sign up and a code (REFER5) to save $5.00 if you’re interested in getting in on the monthly treatyoself action!
Free face wash with rebate! Found this on one of my favorite sites - Free Flys. I follow them on Facebook too and have gotten a ton of awesome samples from shampoo and conditioner to k-cups and granola bars!
I picked up my Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Cleanser at CVS and it was exactly $7.99. If you don’t mind rebates it’s a great deal. Bonus - I was in need of face wash!
WHOOPS. I had every intention of getting my December post up way sooner than now, my b! Since I got my January box while I was away on vaca, here is a delayed December and January post! For a refresher, here is my introductory post that includes a link to sign up and a code (REFER5) to save $5.00. Let’s start with December:
Lulu Frost for POPSUGAR Bracelet (Must Have Fashion) - $110 - I think this bracelet is so pretty and simple. I could not believe it when I saw that it is valued at $110! Definitely wouldn’t pay that much for it, but I’ll rock it fo sho! I also got a 25% off coupon, but since everything is in that kind of price range, I’ll probably be passing. Hit me up if you want the code and I’ll share it!
Mixt Studio Holiday Gifting Set (Must Have Home) - $9 - I love that they included this around the holidays. I am a TERRIBLE gift wrapper so all of the accessories help cover that up!
ModelCo Fibre Lashxtend Black Mascara (Must Have Beauty) - $22 - I actually have gotten this mascara before in a Birchbox and really like to use it layered on top of another mascara since it is really “fiber’y”. I also got a coupon for $10 off next order and a bonus shine ultra lip gloss in “Strip Tease” valued at $16. I don’t think I’ll use it since shipping is kind of expensive annnd I don’t need any makeup, again if you want the code LMK!
Govino Go Anywhere Flutes (Must Have Home) - $12.95 for a pack of four - Again, love that they capitalized on the theme of the holidays for these. I don’t have champagne flutes and these are cute AND non breakable so a win win for me.
CC Made Caramel Corn (Must Have Food) - $4 for 3 oz - I don’t know if I like pistachio and in full disclosure, I haven’t tried these yet. If they aren’t my jam I’ll bring them into work and share!
NCLA Peppermint Lane Nail Wraps (Must Have Beauty) - $16 - These wraps are really cute and surprisingly easy to put on. It was my first time using them and I liked how fast it was. They didn’t last quite as long as I would have liked, but I think with added practice and effort I could get better at them!
Ghirardelli Squares Chocolate (Special Extra) - $4.25 - I got both caramel and a bag of holiday assorted that included pumpkin, peppermint and egg nog. I don’t love chocolate by itself, but I’ve been putting one of these in my coffee in the morning instead of adding milk or a sweetener and I really like the flavor it gives!
TOTAL APPROX VALUE OF DECEMBER: $182.45 (!!) - The bracelet definitely put’s it up there, but that is like 6 times the price of the box my friend. Nice work December POPSUGAR.
Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask (Must Have Beauty) - $40 - I’ve never heard of this brand but I LOVE that they included a full size product. I have recently gotten into masks and am trying to pamper myself once a week at home!
The Juice Generation Book (Must Have Food) - $20 - Such crazy timing since the Suzies have recently gotten into major juicing and smoothie’ing. Can’t wait to get some new ideas from this book. Also included was a 30% off coupon on a six-pack at www.juicegeneration.com - shout if you want it!
Jack + Lucy Tech Gloves (Must Have Fashion) - $15 - I was really excited to get these gloves when I saw them. They felt very soft and I liked the neutral color. Since wearing them in the insane polar vortex of NYC, I am a bit disappointed in the actual warmth they provide. I also wonder if POPSUGAR MustHave Box subscribers in warmer weather got these as well. I guess they could always send them to a cold weather friend or donate them to a charity!
Rifle Paper Co. 2014 Flip Around the World Desk Calendar (Must Have Home) - $16 - This calendar is very chic and kind of reminds me of Mad Men, not sure why. I don’t have a calendar in my apartment and I like the way this looks on my bookcase! Also included is a 10% off riflepaperco.com coupon, lmk if you want!
Pipsnacks White Truffle Pipcorn (Must Have Food) - $6 - 100% honesty, I haven’t tried this yet, but how can it not be good?!
Revlon by Marchesa Box O’Files (Must Have Beauty) - $4.99 - Love these six mini files from Revlon and Marchesa. I have one at work, one in my purse, one in my car and the rest ready for a nail emergency. Plus the design is really pretty. Good add POPSUGAR!
TOTAL APPROX VALUE OF JANUARY: $101.99 - Another great box and value!
A perk to being late on December and January is that February can’t be too far away…
