Popsugar Must Have All Star Box

So, I think Subista, Pnut, MBJ and I all got one of these… I was the holdout and wanted one but didn’t want a box full of yoga mats, tasseled items, and old planners. In fact, I actually found a great comment on MSA that I shared with my subsisters, and will share with you all:

Actual reality of what I will receive in the two boxes I purchased:
Salt and pepper shakers
Arrow ring/Baubble bar.
Planners that are for 2016
Anything with the word “trio”
Wine glass writers/Wine bottle bags
17 different gift cards to Hello Fresh.
All packed in loose tassels.

Right?? I need to go back, find this human, and tell her she should be our friend.

Or is that creepy?? Yeah… probably… right??

Popsugar Must Have All Star BoxJackpot! I was surprised!! NO tassels!!

Govino Dishwasher Safe Wine Glasses: $23 for 4 glasses

These will be gifted to my sesstra. I have the cup and pitcher set from Feb?? that I never use, then I bought another while we were in Hawaii.

Capri Blue Mercury Jewel Box Candle in Rain: $19

Yay! I was so excited to get one of these! It smells nice, and looks lovely as a bookend. I need to find a place to sniff these! I want the Cactus one.

I tried to swap for one and the girl put it in a slightly padded envelope with no extra padding, and SURPRISE! I opened the mailer to find shards of glass. Worst. Swap. Ever. Seriously! A bag of glass is worse than not even getting the item, because then I had to clean up the glass and pull a shard out of my finger, then try not to write in all caps as I explained the situation to the swapper. Who was actually very apologetic and immediately sent something else. Ah well.

Barr-Co. Fir & Grapefruit Bubble Elixir: $32 for 16oz. “More than 98% natural.”

Better be the BEST bath ever for $32! I’m talking like bubbles up to your nose and skin feeling silky for daaayyys!

Btw, I’m almost 82% amusing.

Popsugar Must Have All Star Box

Pecan Honey Mustard from Terrapin Ridge Farms: $7.30 for 10.7oz

Why did I open this? I hate honey mustard! I should’ve sent this to my sesstra as well because she loves honey mustard.

But they suggest putting it on brie or roasts, so I should try that now that summer has given up pretending it even was ever summer =\
Popsugar Must Have All Star BoxThoughtful Heart Deep Sea Personal Stationery from Tiny Hearts: $15

These are cute–I like the pattern on the notecards. The box came smashed, but I just put all the cards into my stationery bin.

It’s a stationary stationery bin, as I don’t move it much.

Deepa Gurnani Katie Crystal Headband

Deepa Gurnani Katie Crystal Headband: $56 [just go to the Deepa site, you will DIE with love and empty wallets]

Uggghhh [gargly throat sounds with head thrown back]!!!! I’ve been waaaanting this so badly! And now it’s MINE!!

Also, I swapped for two more… #addicted

I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was to A. find this in my mystery box and that B. IT FITS ME!!! I’ve got this stupid giant head with lots of poofy hair, and headbands are usually super tight and give me horrible headaches. Not Deepa!! Plus, I feel like Amy Farah Fowler getting a tiara from Sheldon every time I wear this [Big Bang Theory].


Verdict: Wow, this $20 mystery box had a value of over $150!! I was super happy just to have gotten the Deepa Gurnani headband, so this box was a total win =D

Did you get a box? What contents were in yours? Let us know!

    Gorgeous, I got same exact box. I had to hot glue two stones back on head band, besides this, the box is awesomesauce.

      Oh, no good. Maybe I’ll go back through and add a bit more glue to it.

    What a great review and what an amazing box! You know, that mustard might be yummy if you slather it on some chicken breasts before baking them.

      Thanks Elizabeth! I might throw it into a crockpot with chicken. Yummmm… good idea!

    How did you get it for only $20?

    • August 30, 2016 at 11:15 pm

      Hey BoxKraze, it was a one time box to clear out old inventory! Or just to make money, unsure =)
