The Siberian American: September 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box Review (+Giveaway!)

September 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box Review (+Giveaway!)

Usually Mondays are my travel post days, but I got my PopSugar Must Have Box on Saturday, and I couldn’t wait to share it. Here’s the thing: I’m a subscription box addict (I currently have three beauty boxes, two food boxes for my hubby, and PopSugar), but if I had to pick just one box to keep, PopSugar would be it. Although it is by far my most expensive box, the value has always been worth it for me.

Nicole Miller Earbuds ($19.99):I got the earbuds in blue. I was actually glad to receive earbuds in this box because I could use a pair for work when my coworker decides he is going to be Bane from Batman for an entire day.

Tilo Scarves Scarf ($125): Honestly, I would never pay $125 for a scarf unless it’s Burberry or cashmere. However, I really like this scarf and am glad it’s in the box. I tend to gravitate toward buying blue scarves so it will be nice to add this gray and burgundy scarf to my collection.

Ghirardelli Minis Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Almond Pouch ($5.95): I’m always happy to try out new chocolate, and I love Ghirardelli so this is a win for me. 

Letter C Design Pencils ($7.50): This is probably the only item in the box that I won’t use, mostly because I rarely use pencils. I still think the pencils are cute, though!

Rifle Paper Co. Assorted Girls Set Greeting Cards ($18): I love paper products, and these are beautiful! These will make fun birthday cards for some girlfriends.

Oribe Superfine Hairspray (Purse Size) ($21.50): This hairspray is the perfect size to pack on vacation. I have extremely thick hair so I’m not sure if a medium hold would work at all, but I like the size of the bottle.

UrbanRemedy Vegan Almond Brownie ($6.99): My food items usually go to my hubby. I’m sure he’ll be a big fan of an almond brownie.

$20 Nike Gift Card: I’m super excited about this. I will probably grab some running shorts or a Texas Rangers shirt.

Overall, I counted up a total worth of $246.43 for this box. PopSugar Must Have costs $40 a month, or $35 a month if you purchase an entire year (mine was actually much cheaper than this because I got an annual subscription on Black Friday). I thought the September 2014 box was a great box because I will use nearly every item. Plus, it had a scarf, which automatically makes it worth it to me.

Target Giveaway

And now - a Target giveaway! Kate the Almost Great teamed up with some of her sponsors (including me!) to bring you a $20 giveaway to Target. This giveaway runs from 9/15/14 12:00 AM - 9/19/14 11:59 PM. Good luck!


  1. wow, you got some great stuff, especially the scarf - though i'd never pay $120 for a scarf either! eep!

  2. I love how different everything in the pop sugar box is - I mean the stationary alone would have made it worth it for me!!

  3. I don't know what it is but I love anything sweet that has sea salt in it. Chocolate with sea salt, caramel with sea salt, I really don't know why haha. You got some awesome stuff!

  4. Wow, that's a great box! Damn! Right now, I have Birchbox, Ipsy & Be Nice Box but this one seems pretty dang sweet! :)

  5. This Pop Sugar thing looks soooo fun! Do you know if they ship to Europe, though? I've just been ransacking their website trying to find out where they'll ship but to no avail. It would be so fun to get surprises in the mail every month-- a dream :)
