Pop Sugar Must Have November 2012 Box Review

 My first Must Have box! This is a little break from cosmetics but well worth it. I can not tell you how excited i was to receive this box. What is Pop Sugar Must Have. It is a box sent to your door every month for $35 including shipping that includes full sized products from home, fashion, beauty, fitness and more. The fact that it is all full size means you really can't go wrong. It is like receiving a gift of perfectly picked products that you may have never thought about trying on your own! The idea is pretty genious and i have a feeling i am going to love this subscription.

 Since i refused to peek at spoilers this was my first look inside my Must Have box!

 Upon unwrapping the outer layer of pink tissue paper i was greeted by an info card and some doughnut mix by Stonewall Kitchen While i don't own a donuts pan i was able to make some amazing donuts bites. Covered in sweet cinnamon and sugar they were the perfect treat for the thanksgiving weekend.

 Fully unwrapped, the November Pop Sugar Must have box was filled with some of the best must have items for the month! Included was an intro card with a description of each item included.

Gorjana Bracelet-
This is a beautiful bracelet, however i do believe mine is faulty since i am unable to even get it closed to closing along with how the leather feels. I have emailed customer service and they have sent me out a replacement. I do appreciate good customer service so i won't complain about how disappointed i was. This product is listed at worth $55 and while it is a different bracelet  than which is listed on the Gorjana site it is beautiful non the less. I hope the replacement is the qaulity that this was supposed to be.

 Mor Lip Macaron-
This is such a beautiful lip balm! Mine unfortunately came melted and leaking. I really wasn't having too much luck with this months box! But customer service let me know they are sending me out a replacement so i am pleased. What i was able to try of the melted product it is a soft, non greasy, easy to apply vanilla scented lip balm that takes me right back to French bakery's and fresh macrons. The scent is right on point.
Worth 10$

 La Boite Spice Mixes and Recipe Cards-
How did you know i love to cook! These spices smell heavenly. Each little jar has a combination of flavors and spices that will awaken your taste buds to new flavors. I love that there recipe cards included for those who may not know how to use certain spices and it is also helpful for the seasoned cook who just wants to try something new.

 Yogalosophy Yoga DVD-
So after the doughnut bites and the delicious meals from the above spices the body needs some sprucing up. I loved this yoga dvd. It doesn't require a lot of space to do these positions nor do you have to be really flexible. Beyond the toning aspects i loved how relaxed i felt while doing this. Even my two year old son was trying to mimic the positions. Anything that i can include my son in on gets an A+ in my book.

 Snow and Graham Thank You Cards-
Nothing is more personal then a hand written, personally mailed, thank you note. These aren't holiday themed but are pretty enough to be used for any occasion. Made of sturdy paper and a simple "Thank You" on the cover, I look forward to sending these out after Christmas!
Worth $15

 StyleMint/JewelMint Credit-
At first i was a little upset to see this. I cannot fit anything from this site. Upon browsing the MakeUpTalk forum i found out this code can work on jewel mint. I was pretty cheered up considering the condition of the bracelet i received in this box. After a bit of a hassle i got the code to work and got two peices for the price of one due to a bogo sale! Making this one little card worth about $60 !!!!

 Blushing Bouquet Ring-
This ring fit perfectly! I thought it was a bit smaller than i expected but beautiful non the less!

Foliage Drop Choker-
I could not fit this necklace. I understand why clothes are made size specific and geared more towards the thin and lanky but why must jewelry be made for only the boney? I had to add a significant amount of extention to this necklace to make it fit.

Also included was a $30 dollar certificate to canvas pop-
I have not used this but i can't wait to get something printed on canvas. So hard to choose what!

Today as i was writing this, i received my replacements from Pop Sugar Must Have. The Mor Lip Macron was not melted and the bracelet was in better condition! Plus there was a hand written note and caramels! Talk about customer service!

If you are interested in monthly subscription with substance , variety, and a fantastic customer service team you really need to sign up for Pop Sugar Must Have. You can receive $5 dollar off your first box with promo code REFERFRIENDS.
