PopSugar June Must Haves Box Review + GIVEAWAY!

Omg... Omg omg omg. Where do I start with this awesome PopSugar box??? Seriously, I want to tell you if you don't subscribe to any boxes but are thinking about it, treat yourself to this one (and to Ipsy, which is only $10/month)! But is it possible to maintain a level of mind-blowing excellence like this box??? Seriously, it's insane how good it was this month! Next month is the company's anniversary. Can it be even better??? EEK!! Here's first looks:

Kids think PopSugar rocks! Ha!

Peace out PopSugar!

Soooo many goodies! And some photo bombs by a kid as well! Haha!

Let's get to the breakdown!

Juice Beauty stem cellular repair moisturizer ($65) and CC cream samples ($8) - yes, please!! After the stress of an ailing/thankfully recovering kiddo, my skin is wrecked. Potential miracle in a jar?? I'm definitely open to it!

Gorjana & Griffin scarf ($62) and unique gift code ($25) - this scarf... I'm in love! It made it's way out of the house the same day I received it, to go to gymnastics class! It's super soft, lightweight, sheer. The print is a little nautical and not what I would have picked on my own, which makes it even better (i would have picked Martinique or Westside)! Whats the fun of these boxes if not to shake things up and try something new??

(working on a post of fun recent summer outfits! this one will be there!)

The website has lots of pretty things, but shipping starts at $8 if you don't spend $75, which i feel like makes the card worth $17. Wasn't sure I was going to use it and then G & J went through and commented personally on all the pictures of their popsugar scarf on instagram! WHAT?? I'm a sucker for a personal touch. They've officially won my business!

Revenge wears Prada ($14) - how, HOW???, did I not know this book exists?? Ashamed of myself but so so so excited to get it! I couldn't wait, already read it, have it set aside to take to my mom (she also can't wait). It was definitely more focused on relationships, being a mom, etc., than on fashion, like the first one, so a little meh for me, but there was an interesting blurb where people were trying to pronounce "Louisville" like a native, which is always entertaining! Ha! 

Addicted to sweat ($19) - this is a workout with Madonna's trainer that uses only a chair and the floor (and is no joke). After my post on workouts last week, I was excited to try something new, but NO! It is SOooo hard. The workout itself is only 20 minutes but I couldn't do it. Not even close. Lots of steps up/down from chair. Some grueling ab work. I maybe did 60% of it and my a** hurt almost too bad to get out of bed the next morning. 

post-workout, dying. hated it! lol! 

So, who wants to try it?? Use Rafflecopter form below to enter and I'll mail you this used once copy! I'm no glutton for punishment but I figure at least one of you is! LOL!

Fit popcorn ($5) and quench mints ($2) - great little snacks and the mints are from a company that uses proceeds to provide water to people in need! Awesome! That other little black thing is a bookmark for the book! 

So altogether I came up with a value of $192 for this box and it was one of those awesome moments when you LOVE EVERY SINGLE THING!! $35 for $192 of stuff you love?? Yes please!! 

PopSugar is $35/month and you can save $5 off your first box with code REFER5. Please use my referral link if you join! Thank you!! Can't WAIT to see what next month brings!! I heart you PopSugar!!
