I hope that you've all had a wonderful few weeks here in blog-land. I've been getting back into the swing of things with a new job, and balancing life in general (aka- insert excuse here). I thought I would ease my way back into blogging with a quick post on my September PopSugar must have box (Because who doesn't love a good guilty pleasure subscription box).
I used to be a hardcore subscription box junky, and I've backed off lately because of a couple of reasons: A) I don't have money for that and B) I'm over-run by samples. I don't always get PopSugar. I usually preview the spoilers and then decide if I want to get the box or not.
Enough rambling, onto the goods:
This box is getting my very ready for fall, even though it is still 90+ degrees in Phoenix!
Tilo Scarf ($125):
Let's talk about the price tag of these scarves for a moment. WHAT? So expensive. However, these scarves are sold in places like Saks Fifth and Fred Segal, so you know they must be good quality. I love the neutral colors of this scarf for fall, and I cannot wait to layer it with a fun jacket. Did I mention how soft it is? Absolutely amazing.
Nicole Miller Stereo Earbuds ($20):
I love the fun cobalt blue of these headphones, and the sleek design. Usually, these types of headphones with the rubber caps bother my ears, but these came with interchangeable caps to coordinate with your ear size. Small ears, have no fear! These stay in and are super comfy. The sound quality is pretty good as well. Another plus is that I desperately needed new headphones.
Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate Sea Salt and Almond Minis (about $4):
These were an "Extra" this month, and I'm so pleased. As you can see, I had already ripped into these by the time I took these pictures (that sort of week), and I can attest that they are to die for. However, being very hot in Phoenix, I had to put these bad boys in the freezer for a bit before I could eat them, as they were chocolate soup.
Rifle Paper Co. Garance Dore Assorted Girls Set ($18):
Don't get me wrong, I love Rifle Paper Co. I have several products from their store, and I use most of them daily. However, these cards are not my favorite. They are good quality, but I don't love the designs. I would have rather had something fall inspired. I know these were sent out with Fashion Week in mind, but I can't think of anyone I would actually send these too.
Letter C Design Gold Foil Arrow Pencils ($5):
Isn't it funny how the cheapest item in the box becomes your favorite? I'm in love with these hand-foil-stamped pencils, and love the fact that they thought to include a little pencil sharpener. I'm totally a stationary and pencil nerd, so these were right up my alley.
Oribe Superfine Purse Size Hair Spray ($21.50):
I have heard amazing things about Oribe, but have never tried their hair products before. I love a hair spray that has a superfine mist, so this is awesome. But, I couldn't believe the price tag of this 2.2 oz bottle. Full size is $32.00.
Urban Remedy Almond Brownie ($6):
I cannot wait to try this brownie. All natural ingredients, and looks totally yummy. They also included a coupon for $10 off a $50 purchase.
Nike $20 Gift Card:
This is one of my favorite parts of the box. I love the small touches Nike put in this package. They included a $20 gift card and free shipping to try their new range of Nike Pro Bra's. They even included a little measuring tape to find your perfect size!
The total value of this box was $199.50 without the Nike gift card. Super pumped! I really loved this box, and was so pleased that I bought it. Again, I always preview spoilers before deciding if I want the box, and this was a must for me.I was so bummed I missed out on August's box, but this one almost made up for it.
What do you think of the PopSugar September box?
