PopSugar Special Edition Holiday Box 2013 Review

I was so excited to get this box from PopSugar! I had forgone spoilers and had no idea what was going to be included! This was a Limited Edition box that sold out quickly for $100. We loved the his and hers summer boxes and I had high hopes for this one!! 

Here's first looks:

And the breakdown:

Fatty Sundays Peppermint and Chocolate covered Pretzels,  $7 - Yep, these were basically inhaled upon opening. All gone. Apparently they were delicious! ;)

Graphic Image 2014 Leather Datebook,  $90 - I am thoroughly invested in the 2014 planner that I've already been working on! This one is so so so pretty though!! Wish I had gotten it sooner!

Winks Faux Lashes Compact, $28 - I have a sister in law who wears falsies every single day... I love the idea but have yet to find that magical set. Hopefully this is it!! 

TokyoMilk Body Souffle, $40 - This brand is new to me and I would have bought it based on container alone. This thing weighs a ton, seriously, it's like a brick! And the top twists off.... I spent some time trying to figure that one out.... LOL! The stuff smells fantastic and I'm always up for a rich body cream! My skin is sad, sad, sad right now! So dry and needy!! 

Erickson Beamon Cuff,  $99 (?) - Erickson Beamon pieces are sold in high end stores like Barneys and online at Shopbop. They can go for hundreds and even into the thousands. This "Rocks" line looks to be a less expensive offshoot, sold in places like Bergner's  and Belk's. I based my guess on the pieces I saw online. I love this hinged cuff and it's totally something I would have bought on a shopping trip! 

Lunares Cheese Paddle and Knife, $59 - It's weird that we don't have anything like this! I'm happy to have it! And the heavy little cheese cleaver is awesome and fun to hold! 

Cuyana Infinity Scarf, $65 - This is made of Peruvian alpaca fleece. Let me tell you, I bought TONS of alpaca scarves when we were in Peru. They were dirt cheap (seriously, like $2 or $3) and are amazing. Everyone got a scarf for Christmas that year!! I have an around the world shopping trip that I need to do some day and stopping in Peru for scarves is on that list!! 

I came up with a value of $388 for this box, which was a great deal for $100!! I really like the lotion and the bracelet and the family loved the pretzels! The other items will make great gifts or maybe a giveaway for the blog! ;) All in all very happy with this box! 

I'm assuming that the December PopSugar box is long gone but I figure you can still sign up for the January box here. Monthly boxes are $40 (or less with longer commitment) and you can use code REFER5 to get $5 off your first box. This is such a fun subscription and is hands down my favorite month after month! There's still time to ask for it for Christmas, too, which is what I would do if I hadn't paid for months in advance already!!

    1. Me too! I'm a bigger is better sort of girl, so gaudy works for me where it doesn't for a lot of people! LOL!

  2. I love the Tokyo Milk brand!! Check out Tokyo Milk Dark next time you get a chance, divine.

    1. Interesting! It seems like such a posh brand. I will definitely check it out! Thanks!

  3. I wish I would have ordered this. I loved everything in the box!

    1. I was super happy with it but $100 is always a risky gamble!
