PopSugar MustHave Box December 2016

PopSugar MustHave Box December 2016


Just in time for the holidays I received my favorite gift that keeps on giving, the December Popsugar MustHave Box! It’s always a joy to come home and see that pink box waiting for me to discover it’s surprises. December’s box was no disappointment and was full of goodies perfect for the season. As many of my regular readers may already know, I’ve been receiving this subscription box (courtesy of Popsugar Must Have) since June. And below you will find links to my other reviews!





December’s theme was festive, snowy, minimalist, giving, celebrations (that’s a mouthful).  All the perfect adjectives to describe the month of December. Below I’ve reviewed my favorite products from the Must Have Box! [To see more reviews from this box, check out my Vlog on Youtube!]

  1. ODEME Catchall + Ring Dish


This matching porcelain catchall and ring dish set are the key to organizing your life. I am a fan of just throwing my keys anywhere I can find a free space. But, now I’ll be sure to use this catchall instead. Add a small vase with your favorite flowers to elevate the style of your room. And the ring holder is perfect for your night stand where you can toss your watch or earrings! [ODEME has a great collection of shiny chrome and gold plated beauty accessories] Value: $67


  1. BaubleBar Snowfall Pendant


Popsugar teamed up with Bauble Bar to bring us this fabulous statement necklace pendant. This rotating pendant is the perfect minimalist look! Value: $28


  1. Mane Message Date Night Bobby Pins

I love the shimmery sparkle on these festive bobby pins! I often wear my hair in a twist out so keeping my ringlets tamed can be a challenge. I love how I won’t have to hide my pins and tucks with these stylish hair accessories. Value: $10


  1. Winky Lux Lip Pill in Bunny



I don’t think it’s possible to have too many great lipsticks. And this juicy cranberry shade keeps those puckers looking holiday ready. I adore the pill capsule shape and the ultra shiny casing makes searching for it in my makeup bag super simple! And this brand is Made in the U.S.A and is paraben free! You can find the Winky Lux brand in Forever 21 stores! Here are some of my favorite lip colors from the brandValue: $14


  1. Sisters’ Gourmet Bakers Dozen Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

What’s better than fresh baked chocolate chip cookies? Five step fresh baked chocolate chip cookies! Everything is perfectly portioned in this Sisters Gourmet cookie mix. All I had to do was add butter and egg! Not only were they easy to make but they came out super yummy too! Crunchy corners and a chewy center. Drooool! I cooked these Christmas morning (sorry santa) and stored them in a cute snowflake tin to bring to a family gathering later that day!  Value: $6.99




It’s been a while since I’ve tried a serum on my hair. I took this product for a whirl after a fresh wash. I did my usual twist out with a touch of serum with each twist.

I couldn’t fit all my reviews on one blog post so I decided to do a video as well! Check out my Vlog on the December 2016 MustHave box. I review the Dessange Top Coat Serum, the Mane Message bobby pins, and the Winky Lux lip color in Bunny!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. I have really enjoyed receiving these boxes and sharing them with the world. Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think. Or if you have any questions about any of the products, I am happy to answer!





PopSugar Must Have Box September



I was selected again this month to try out the Pop sugar Must Have Box. I did a review about my August box you can read about it here. It was a cool box, but I must say the September Must–Have Box is even better. I’ve reviewed my favorite items from the box below.


The Gluten Free Bites

The perfect office snack! I munched on these instead of my usual chocolate chip cookie (cringe) and I liked them! They definitely satisfy my chocolate craving. And they only have seven grams of sugar per serving (2 bites) For only 100 calories you get 2g Fiber, chocolate coconut goodness, and they are Non-GMO. I say this brand is GO!

Mani E.R. from NCLA Los Angeles


This could not have come at a better time. Have you ever been at a party or a gathering and had to shake hands with someone, and you see them look at your hands so you look at your hands too and notice the horror that is your chipped nail polish and over grown fingernails. How did this happen? Two weeks of trying to get in the swing of things at a new job. That’s how.

I was glad to find the manicure kit in the Pop Sugar Must Have Box. I used it for the first time after having an epiphany about a work situation in the middle of the night. I sat up in bed and cleaned my nails and clipped my hangnails. Then filed them to perfection. It was so therapeutic. This the perfect travel manicure.

This super stylish hat…



LipGloss from Smith & Cult

I was pleasantly surprised by this sheer gloss. Normally sheer colors don’t show up well on my lips but this did not disappoint!


BrioGeo Deep Conditioner



Loved how this Deep Conditioner from Briogeo brought my ringlets to life! Too bad it isn’t a leave-in!

The Must-Have Box is the perfect gift that keeps giving (its a subscription). It features products that you’ll love and you will discover things you didn’t even realized you needed!
