What's in the June POPSUGAR Must Have Box?


I never get tired of summer.  Ever.  I'm a teacher.  Can't you tell?  I do love teaching, but summer helps me recharge those batteries and gives me extra time with my own kiddos.  An added benefit to being a teacher mom.



As a POPSUGAR blogger, I had the opportunity to review the June POPSUGAR Must Have Box.  I really wasn't sure what to expect in this box.  I tend to get runners boxes, so to get a box that didn't have running fuel and gear in it felt a little more exciting.



What was in my box?  

You Smell Wet Wipes.  

Lemony, fresh smell.  I loved it.  So much.  



Turkish-T Beach Towel.  

I've never had a beach towel that looked so grown up and versatile.  When Ward saw it, he immediately said "oh a scarf!"  And sure enough - this towel can act as a scarf as well.  But, it's June and it's 80 degrees out there, so I'm not wearing it as a scarf.  Instead, you'll see me lounging on this beauty of a towel at the beach while reading my new favorite summer book.  Or I'll wrap it around my waist.  

Emily Giffin's The One and Only.

I'm not a huge reader.  I know.  I'm a teacher.  Don't teachers like to read.  Nah.  I prefer math.  I'm a math teacher!  I probably should read more and be a better role model for my kids.  I've read Emily Giffin books before and was in love with her style of writing.  This book was the perfect book to be sent to me because I will actually read it and love it.  

SACHAJUAN Body Lotion, Shiny Citrus.  

I put this lotion on and was immediately sold on it.  The fragrance isn't overpowering and crazy flowery.  It has a lemon/jasmine smell that is to die for.  Ward's a huge fan of it.  And it goes on nice and silky.  No sticky residue.  

One Potato, Two Potato Hawaiian BBQ Chips.  



Did someone say chips?  Chips are not safe in my house when I'm around.  Thankfully they sent me a small bag, so when I inhaled them, I didn't feel like I ate 2000 calories.  They were easy to eat up because they had a nice sweet flavor to them with the salty goodness found in chips.  Delicious!  

Lollies Hair Ties.  

Finally my hair is getting long enough for a ponytail, so I can sport these cute hair ties.  And when I'm not wearing them in my hair, they are on my wrist and actually look cute!  

Are you curious about the cost?  I know.  It really comes down to how much does this box cost?  A subscription is $39.95/month (but if you use my discount code below on a 3-month subscription, your cost will be lowered to $33.29/month!)  

But still, is it worth it?  Just check out the retail values of what was in my box!!!  

You Smell wet wipes.............................. $5
Turkish-T Beach Towel.... ....................$45
The One and Only by Emily Giffin ..... $28 
One Potato, Two Potato Chips ...............$1
Lollies Hair Ties  (for a 3 pack) .............$8
SACHAJUAN Body Lotion ................$24

Total Retail Value .............................. $111

What a deal!

and that's not even mentioning the $15 voucher to Native Union.  I honestly didn't really like what they had on their site, so I will more than likely pass it on to someone who can use it.  

If you'd like to get a POPSUGAR Must Have subscription, you can get a $10 discount off a 3-month subscription by entering JUNESELECT10.  But hurry!  The code expires 6/30/14.

  8. Perhaps a smarter person wouldn't have tried to do a 5k either. :) Oops! But I feel completely recovered. And even more determined to have speed and kick butt at my 10k next week!
