I recently came home to a lovely, little surprise (surprise because I thought I had cancelled the subscription last month to save a bit of $$, but lovely because this box is AWESOME) delivered right to my front door.
April’s PopSugar Must Have Box was spring themed and fantastic. This subscription costs $40 each month and the overall value for the box this month was $136 (not including the $20 Bloom That gift card we received)!!
Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat ($30)
This cook book looks absolutely delicious! With all of the Pinterest and Tasty recipes that are out there now I have honestly never cooked something from a recipe actually in a cook book. But, this one looks like a winner. There is a super wide variety of recipes, and they seems easy to follow. Thankfully, I can actually recognize the ingredients listed (meaning I won’t have to hop on my donkey and ride to the nearest Underground-Ingredients-You’ve-Never-Heard-Of-And-Will-Only-Use-Once Market).
I think I’ll play around with this book for awhile and then my next food post will be something out of it. Sound good?
Plus, Chrissy Teigen is absolutely stunning and her pictures with John Legend in here are gorgeous. So, I figure if I use her book I’ll instantly look like her. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
*This book is listed as $30, but the Amazon link I used above has the book for $15.
Canvas Home Tinware Salt & Pepper Shakers ($12)
Ok, these salt and pepper shakers are for serious salt and pepper fans. They are adorable, but the holes are pretty darn big and the salt and pepper pour out at lightning speed. So, not really my fav.
The rest of the Tinware line from Canvas Home is pretty darn cute, though. It’s got that rustic country vibe, while still looking a bit modern and not too beat-up.
next by Nature Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans ($4)
I’m devouring these as I write this.
Chocolate covered espresso beans. Need I say more?
Occasionally, I will see these at my local grocery store, but usually the price is way jacked up. They are much cheaper on Amazon. I couldn’t find the espresso beans specifically, but they do carry lots of next by Nature items here.
Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm ($48)
I am in love with this item! Honestly, the entire box was worth it for just this one item.
I love fancy skin care and this brand looks awesome. The Farmacy site gives you tons of info on their products, but basically their mission is skincare using natural ingredients and cutting-edge technology. So, the best of both worlds. Still keeping with that natural-granola-y-vibe I like, but not completely ignoring all of these super impressive modern advances we have made.
I’ve only used this a few times, so I can’t attest to any long-term effects, but I love how it makes my skin feel. It’s ridiculously soft and moisturizing without feeling oily. Seriously, I made Brady feel my face twice after putting it on the first time.
*These products are a bit pricier (which I am okay with for skincare), but they have a sample kit on sale right now, which would be a great way to test out the brand.
Noon Design Shop “Lemons” Flour Sack Tea Towel ($18)
At first this item was kind of ‘meh’ for me. I mean, it’s cute, but really it’s just a tea towel. But, now I am so glad that PopSugar included it.
The entire Noon Design site is adorable. I want ALL of the tea towels. They have adorable prints and are actually meant to be used. They have super simple wash instructions– nothing like those look-but-don’t-touch-tea-towels at Grandma’s. They also carry some really fun jewelry pieces and skin care products.
Royal Apothic Conservatories Hand Cream in “Field Poppy” ($24)
I am someone who really appreciates a good hand creme (or cream because I live in Wyoming and am not that fancy). I am a teacher so I am constantly washing and sanitizing my hands, which makes them ridiculously dry. This creme does wonders for moisturizing my hands. Honestly, the most moisturizing product I have tried. The smell, however, is just a bit overpowering. I’m talking “punched in the face with a fist full of flowers” overwhelming. So, I think I will keep using this (when I am in an open and well-ventilated area), then try another scent from this collection.
As always, I am floored by the value of this box. I really can’t say enough good things. I did actually succeed in cancelling this subscription (at least for awhile) in order to save a little bit of cash. But there is a PopSugar Mini Must Have Box launching in July (for $18 a month), that I can’t wait to check out!
Thanks for reading,
