Took it for a Spin: Stitch Fix

After hearing about Stitch Fix from gorg friends like Allie Mac and Megs and also getting a free trial offer in my October POPSUGAR Must Have Box, I decided to give it a go cause, why not?! If you aren’t familiar with how it works, here is a brief overview:

First you sign up and take the style profile quiz. They ask your size, shape, budget and lifestyle to alter the picks for you. It takes about 10 minutes complete. 

Then you schedule your “fix” and they send a box of 5 clothing and accessing items a stylist has picked for you based on your settings. It’s $20 “styling fee” to get the box each time - you can do it once or schedule it reoccurring every month. If there is something in the box you want to keep you get the $20 fee back as credit toward it!

The cool thing is that you’re able to try everything on at home and they share a style card with suggestions on how to wear things. You get 3 days to decide what you want to keep and they include a pre-paid USPS mailing bag to return anything you don’t.

If you decided to keep anything (you lose your $20 if you don’t buy anything) you just login to your account and pay for the items you want. If you buy all 5 things you get 25% off the total price along with the $20 styling fee back.

If you decided to do it again or on a reoccurring basis, you can give feedback about each item so the stylists know how to better tailor to your taste.

Overall I thought my box was really on point with my style preferences and sizing. I decided to keep a pink long sleeve cardigan from 41Hawthorn and I really love it! It ended up being $28 with the $20 credit. Since I had a free try from my POPSUGAR box, I didn’t have to pay the styling fee and I got $20 off! This photo of the style card is terrible quality, but I can’t find any of their stuff online for some reason.

Gingers Stick Together

Are you looking for an amazing person to support in an amazing cause? Allow me to tell you about my strong and beautiful friend. She is helping raise money for rare cancer research at Sloan Kettering. She and her adorable boyfriend participated in ‘Cycle for Survival,’ a national indoor team cycling event. As part of the fundraising effort, 100% of the funds donated go directly to Sloan Kettering to help patients around the world. Since its inception, Cycle for Survival has helped fund 85 clinical trials and research studies – trials and studies that helped discover the chemotherapy treatment she is currently on.

In support of her courage, drive and amazing heart, Text100 has decided to match all donations made by employees up to $5,000. How fantastic is that? Thank you Text100 - a truly amazing place to work.

For more information or to donate (if you’re like me and can’t cycle to save your own life let alone others) please visit her Cycle for Survival page. Here’s to you and your fierce Vicki Beckham hair girl, you stay Ginger Strong! <3

POPSUGAR Must Have Box: March

Sooooooo when did it become March?! Goodness gracious. I am so very happy with the POPSUGAR Must Have Box this month. (New to it? 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!) I also got this for my gorg #1 sloreness Erica for her birthday - insert photo(s) of Er and I at the end of this post - and I couldn’t be happier with the products they chose this month to gift her with! Here is what I got with approx pricing - enjoy!


Brokedown Blue Ikat Scarf (Must Have Fashion): $72 - First of all, this scarf is literally one of the softest things I have ever felt. The colors are gorgeous and it’s the perfect weight for spring - love it!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum (Must Have Beauty): $27 - This serum smells so good and it’s oily at all. I’ve been putting it on after I get out of the shower and I really like it. If anyone wants to try anything online use POPSUGAR for 15% off first Jurlique.com purchase!

Dogeared Lucky Horseshoe Make a Wish Necklace (Must Have Fashion): $30 - I absolutely love the idea behind this and delicate’ness of the necklace. The card says “Make a Wish - Make a wish and put on your necklace. This lucky horseshoe will invite good fortune into your life! When your necklace wears off, your wish is ready to come true. Handmade in the USA, gold dipped.” The only photo I could find was this silver one, but you get the idea. If anyone wants to buy anything online here is a code for 20% off: POPSUGAR-SSK-SCN-XKN-60Q1.

Baublebar Elephant Ring Tree (Must Have Home): $12 - I’ve been eyeing these Baublebar ring trees! The elephant is so stinking cute and it holds all my rings perfectly! Here is a 20% off $30 or more code: PS2030-HU4OF.



ActiveForever Fusion Exercise Ball (Must Have Fitness): $9.95 - What a great idea! They sent the ball with a stick to blow it up and secure it and will also have exercise tips and tutorials here - musthave.popsugar.com/blog.

Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps (Must Have Food): $2 - Okay, the slogan for these is SO TRUE for me: "If you didn’t like peas as a kid, it’s because they never tasted this good." Honestly, I hate peas. Always have and I always will. But these. THESE are not peas. They are amazing and so good. I was ready to try one and bring them into work to give them away but I ate almost half the bag in one sitting. Try them!!

Nature’s Bakery All Natural Strawberry Fig Bars (Special Extra): $1 - As with the peas, I’m always kind of “eh” about the food in these boxes. It’s really hit or miss. Let me tell you, HIT with the peas and HIT with this bar. I had it for breakfast and it’s so good! It’s like an  adult not desserty Fig Newton. I’d buy these in store if I saw them!

TOTAL APPROX VALUE OF MARCH BOX: $152.95

Home run again POPSUGAR!! Just in time for me to renew my subscription…
