POPSUGAR Must Have Box - November 2012

Thanksgiving has come and gone and we are gearing up for the holidays and entertaining.  In my house, Christmas and Hanukkah are observed.  I couldn't wait to tear into my POPSUGAR Must Have November Box to see what was the POPSUGAR team put together for the holidays.  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 November Box contained the following items:

Fashion - Gorjana Parker Bracelet; $55 - This leather bracelet is perfect for this season as it is burgundy and is accented in gold. I love the trendy wrap-around look and it can easily be appropriate for work, a party, or casual outings.

Beauty - MOR Lip Macaron - French Vanilla -; 10g/.35oz/$10 - Who doesn't love lip balm, especially during the cold weather.  With the wind picking up here in the Northeast, I am just loving this lip balm!  MOR Lip Macarons are inspired by french pastries and this one is just yummy!  I can't wait to try other scents.

Home - Snow & Graham Thank You Notes - Dogwood -; Box of 6/$15 - Technology, in my humble opinion, has added more value to receiving a "snail mail" card.  Something about someone taking the time to write out a card, stamp it, and mail it, makes it invaluable. These are just lovely and I look forward to purchasing more of these babies as my stationery needs grow.  The selection from this Chicago-based store is wonderful!

Food - La Boîte Spice Mixes - Sweet & Savory Spice Collection -; 3 .5 oz jars: Cancale, Yemen, Reims; 7.5 oz collection/$28.99 on - I just love trying new recipes and I look forward to trying the recipes included in this month's Must Have Box and put these spices to use.  Chef Lior Lev Sercarz is a master spice mixer and his NYC store is just a wonder for those of us that appreciate the culinary arts.

Food - Stonewall Kitchen Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Mix; 18 oz. -; $9.99 - I just love fresh doughnuts, but I have never tried to make my own.  This package yields 10-12 baked doughnuts, not fried ones.  Of course, this means I need to run out and get a doughnut pan, not just to make these but because Stonewall Kitchen offers a whole host of other types of doughnut mixes.  Nom, nom.

Fitness - Mandy Ingber's Yogalosophy DVD; $14.98; - Yoga Instructor Mandy Ingber is a yoga instructor to the stars and for those of us planning to incorporate yoga into our fitness routine, this is a wonderful introduction to the basics of Mandy's practice.

Special Extras:

Fashion - Stylemint Credit; Good for one tee;;  - Who doesn't love supersoft t-shirts?  There are tons to choose from on Stylemint thanks to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  Can't wait to grab one of these babies!!!!

Home - CanvasPop; $30 gift certificate - CanvasPop converts any photo in a canvas print all with just the click of a mouse.  Trouble is, I can't figure out which photo I'd like to convert first.

Overall rating: Booyah!!!  If you have not yet tried POPSUGAR Must Have Boxes/Bags, you're truly missing out.  The value and selection of items are not to be believed!!!
