POPSUGAR Must Have Box - September 2012

I know I'm way late in posting this.  I recently changed jobs so I have been acclimating to my new schedule and position.  Wanted to share the contents of my POPSUGAR Must Have September Box.  POPSUGAR'S Must Have Box costs $35 plus tax (free shipping) and it includes a variety of must have products from the worlds of beauty, fashion, fitness, food, and home.

My September Box contained the following items:

Fashion - Brokedown Scarf (link is not working at the moment so I cannot check retail value) - This really cool scarf is very soft and is a wonderful shade of taupe so it goes with tons of outfits.  Whether at work or just hanging out with family and friends, I always seem to get compliments on it.

Entertainment - The Perks of Being a Wallflower Book & Movie Tickets; $7 for book and $20 for Movie Tickets - This very quick read was very enjoyable.  Not only was it neat to read an actual "book" (turning pages is quite nostalgic), but I also received two movie tickets so I can see the movie with my BFF.  It's a great coming-of-age story that I believe all audiences can enjoy.

Home - Rifle Paper Co.'s Lined Notepad -; $9 - I love the look of this notepad as it took me back to my school days with its resemblance to 3-ring binder loose leaf paper.  Great to jot down ideas, task/shopping lists, or, in my case, holiday shopping lists, this pad is quite handy.  The paper is sturdy and is a welcome addition to my handbag.

Beauty - Benefit Cabana Glama -; $36 - This handy set contains Hoola Bronzing Powder, Some Kind-a Gorgeous Powder in Medium, Posietint Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain (Poppy-pink), Eyeshadow Palette in Peach Fizz, Bronze Buzz and Cocoa Pizzazz, a Double-ended sponge applicator, Mini Cheek Brush and a Tips and Tricks Guide, all in a mirrored boxed set.  Perfect for travel, I have put this baby to use on weekend trips.  The shades are perfect for a nice, natural, neutral look.

Food - Becky's Blissful Bakery Caramels; 4 oz. -; $10.49 - I just love these original sea salt caramels.  They are so soft that they melt-in-your mouth.  Quite an upgrade to hard caramels that always make me feel like I might lose a filling having one.  These are gluten-free and also do not contain any artificial ingredients!  Perfect for a quick gift of indulgence!

Food - Pop-Up Pantry Dinner and Cookie - - The sugar cookie was delish! so I can imagine how great the dinners must be.  I haven't yet placed an order as I love to cook but I will definitely try this service out and use my free dinner code, which incidentally serves two people.

Special Extras:

Beauty - Yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Towelettes; package of 10 -; $2.99 - These towelettes are made from organic cucumber and aloe vera, so they are totally refreshing and easy on your skin.  I like them for a quick makeup removal but feel that I still need to rinse my face as the wipes leave a bit of a residue.

Beauty - Kitsch Hair Ties -; package of 4; $9.99 for package of 5 online - These hair ties are great because they are pain-free.  They don't pull my hair (which is curly) nor does it leave any imprints when I decide to let my hair down.  These are awesome!

Beauty - Tracie Martyn Skin Care Line; $25 gift certificate -; This N.Y. salon on Fifth Avenue, offers great skin care treats.  Can't wait to see what they have to offer.

Food - Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato Chips -; 1.5 oz. bag; $18.50 for a 24-pack - I just love satisfying my snack cravings with something that's good for me.  Real, simple ingredients make these a healthy snack option and a new staple in my home.  

Fashion - Must Have Pouch - Popsugar sent this really cute zippered purse which can be used for a whole variety of uses.  The material doesn't stretch nor can it be damaged by water.  Haven't tried it out yet but I can't wait to put this baby to use.

Overall rating: Booyah!!!  This is my second shipment from POPSUGAR Must Have Bag and I must say I am loving what I received. I am looking forward to future shipments.  This is, by far, the best subscription service I receive.
