Popsugar Must Have Box: October 2012

I came home yesterday and had a huge surprise!! My Popsugar Must Have Box for October was waiting for me! The September Popsugar Must Have Box was decent, so I kept my subscription going.

One thing I noticed this month, is they categorize the items.

  • Must Have Home
  • Must Have Entertainment
  • Must Have Fitness
  • Must Have Beauty
  • Must Have Food
  • Special Extras (you know the one’s that don’t really fit a category)

This is probably a good idea so it doesn’t end up all beauty or all food.

Adam was kind enough to lug the sucker onto the kitchen table. He mentioned approximately three times how heavy it was. Hmmmm curiousity…

Onto this month’s box….



  1. Special Extras:
    Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar Puffs
    I’ve seen this in the store before. I always thought this was popcorn, but it’s really a white cheddar flavored cheese poof. (Sorta like a non-crunch Chester Cheetah Cheetos) It wasn’t bad. If I’m craving something to much on like chips, I *might* pick these up. The flavor was good too.
  2. Must Have Entertainment:
    The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
    This box was heavy.. NOW I know why! I’d heard about this book, but hadn’t thought to actually buy it. It’s J.K. Rowling’s first book for adults. I’m looking forward to starting it. I personally would have preferred a credit to download it on Kindle. I’m not sure what would be easier though. Paying the extra shipping for the heavier package, or coordinating with Kindle for the downloads. Plus, having the actual book in there did make me feel like I got more out of the package. Has anyone read it yet?When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…. Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town’s council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.


  3. Must Have Home:
    Red Flower Spanish Gardenia Petal Topped Candle

    This smells soo nice! I love the flowers on top. The instructions DO say to remove the flowers BEFORE burning the candle. (uh.. good thing I actually saw that..I am that dumb). I think the flowers are a nice touch too because they’ll cover up any dust that might form on the top if I haven’t burned it in a while. They’ll keep it looking sharp and new.
  4. Must Have Food:
    Gummy Bears from Dylan’s Candy Bar
    I’m a gummy bear snob. I even love making Party Bears (these did not last that long enough). I love gummy bears! I definitely chowed down on these right after dinner. From all the different types of Gummy Bears I’ve tried.. these were definitely in the top 5 all time best gummies I’ve had.
  5. Must Have Beauty:
    Opi Pink Hearts Nail Polish Duo

    In the set are “You Glitter Be Good To Me” and “I Think in Pink”. This is actually pretty cool because I just started growing my nails out again. They are looking great and seem decently strong. I can’t wait to put some polish on them!
  6. Must Have Fitness:
    Crescent Moon Yoga and Pilates Socks
    socks w/ grippy nubbins. interesting. I didn’t think it was a big deal, until I saw they’re good for yoga. I’m about to cash in on a Groupon, so these will probably be useful!
  7. Special Extra:
    Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy
    This stuff smells great. Adam even said it reminded him of herbal essences (only it doesn’t make you start awkwardly moaning in public or anything).  It made my hair feel really light too. When we went to New York a month ago, I LOVED the water because of how it made my hair feel. This shampoo/conditioner made my hair feel just like THAT.

I’d say this month’s box was pretty decent! The cost for me to participate was $35, and I’d say I got my monies worth. Just the book ($25), nail polish ($12), candle ($35) and socks ($8) totals around $75.
