Well that pouch was bigger than I expected!

PopSugarMustHave – June 2017

June’s Theme: Beach Read, Swim, Waves, Breeze, Mermaids, Palm Trees

Newsflash: PopSugar forgot to add actual mermaids, villagers were up in arms.

PopSugarMustHave – June 2017

Look how PopSugar cleverly packaged everything in A-Game Tetris Style!!!

The first thing I (and probably you) like to do is pull out the nom so you can nom whilst unboxing.

Belgian Boys Mini Cookie Stash

Belgian Boys Mini Cookie Stash

Mmmmm… Spec cookies. These were cute, crispy and there was quite a bit in this small bag.

Because usually small bags have like a tiny amount of product in them. Hmmm… same thing can be said about small tube samples too!

Belgian Boys Mini Cookie Stash

Here is me nomming it up with my drink of choice.

Nothing fancy just fenugreek tea. 


BILLABONG Aloha Forever Trucker Hat

BILLABONG Aloha Forever Trucker Hat

To the garden this will go with me. Pipsqueak wants to share. Instructions say to spot clean so once it gets dirty I am going to toss it in the wash and hope its not disposable.

The hat’s saving grace is that it says Aloha.

It fits a Pipsqueak!!!


Captain Blakenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray

Captain Blakenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray

So fancy. Gift pile it goes.

It’s fancy but enough with the sea salt sprays subscription boxes! 


The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo By Taylor Jenkins Reid

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo By Taylor Jenkins Reid

This will be gifted to an avid book reader of normal books.

I am an avid book reader of children’s books. 


Aloha Collection Mid-Size Ocean Coco Palms Pouch

This is not a wet bag but offers more protection than most pouches. Its made of the crinkly IKEAish bag material but less waterproofy if that makes sense. This pouch is the size of the PopSugar box! I am obsessed about pouches so no fuss from the Pnut Department plus it says Aloha.

Pnut also is Hawaii obsessed!


NCLA So Rich – Mermaid Tears

NCLA So Rich – Mermaid Tears

A semi-digression if any of you read Bunmi Latidan, you are familiar with cooking using the tears of children that only eat air.

I digress, this is my second NCLA cuticle oil, it is a good product and I love this scent!

I wonder what mermaids smell like. Only if PopSugar delivered we will never know what mermaids smell like just their tears.


Meri Meri Blue and White Party Straws

Meri Meri Blue and White Party Straws

Meri Meri I so fancy with my party straws!


Starbucks Frappuccino Coffee Drink

Starbucks Frappuccino Coffee Drink

Yes please! A must have for a much needed pick-me-up in caffeinated form.


PopSugarMustHave – June 2017


Well it wasn’t mermaids and unicorns and not the best of PopSugar but I am contented with this month. For the most part.

Sea Salt sprays really piss me off. Rather have scarves or another black eyeliner.

    The hat, sea spray, and drink all get side eye from me. This box was a thumbs mostly down Especially since now I’m paying full price for PSMH for the first time ever.

    • June 22, 2017 at 10:47 pm

      Whaaaaaa!!! Full price not even with the $5 code *sniff*

        Do you remember the days when they released a $10.00 coupon each month?

        • June 23, 2017 at 4:08 pm

          Yes! Those were the days of yore. Now we must cross fingers and toes for almighty credit card draing black Friday!

    I’m still waiting for my box to finish its cross-country trip. I’m tired of sea salt sprays too. I wish they sent the mermaid detox mask instead.

    • June 23, 2017 at 4:07 pm

      oooohhh mermaid detox mask sound a gazillion times better! I was literally shocked that my box wasn’t one of the delayed ones since it usually sits a week in the warehouse before shipping (happened 2 months in a row)!

      My box arrived yesterday. My 18 year old son wore the hat while drinking the Starbucks drink. My favorite item is the pouch.

      • June 25, 2017 at 8:55 am

        Has he claimed the hat or will he be sharing? The hat is loud enough that I can find it where a squeaker last left it so it would be useful especially on the days I escape to the garden plot but forget to slap on sunscreen. I can’t find my garderner’s hat I found at the thrift store its camoflaged somewhere in here :/

          He’s going to keep the hat. I haven’t used my gardener’s hat much because of all the rain. I have nothing planted in my garden.

          • June 26, 2017 at 12:41 pm

            Hopefully the rain will let up. I want to buy a peony bush the end of garden season or early next season. My flowers are not doing so well, new herbs are ok but my cilantro plant tastes like soap and its in a pot with bagged soil (I planted from seed direct on ground tasted like soap too). I think it must be the water? Veggies are growing the best but only a few sugar snap peas harvested by Pipsqueak at this time. Everything is growing late at the neighbor plots this year….

      • June 25, 2017 at 3:49 pm

        I love the pouch too! It looked okay in the picture but in person I love how it feels. I used it going to the beach yesterday for my lotions and deodorant.

          I love the pouch too. I’m using it to hold sunscareen, lotion etc. when attending outdoor kid activities. I also plan to use it when we go on our mini vacay.

    I didn’t get this box, but that sea salt hair spray is one of my favorite products! Then again, I’m not currently getting any sub boxes (due to lack of funds) so I don’t have a sea salt spray pile. The pouch is super cute and the hat looks ok (it looks adorable on your little model of course).

    • June 23, 2017 at 11:26 pm

      Hi LC! Thanks for commenting 🙂
      Hopefully there will be codes for all your favorite sub boxes come Black Friday.
      Did you hear that Ecocentric Mom is stopping new subscriptions for the pregnancy and mom boxes (they are allowing the box for current subscribers) and the only box accepting new subscribers is their mom and baby box. I think that is a good sign especially since I am not a fan of variations lol!

        June 24, 2017 at 11:24 pm

        No, I hadn’t heard that. I probably deleted the email without looking at it. I think it makes more sense for them to just have one type of box.

        • June 25, 2017 at 8:36 am

          Deleting all the emails I know that well! I actually opened one email that said my points were expiring (whaaa) but it turns out it was an blasted email bait because points expire in a year. It did not sucker me into signing in to see my points but I just cyber shopped and saw that they had the fox wet bag for sale so I thought of you but promptly got distracted by my Pnut people until you responded to this then I remembered lol!

        I was sad when I read the email. I received my first mom box this month and have two more boxes left in my sub. It reminded me of Eco Emi (RIP).

        • June 25, 2017 at 8:39 am

          You should be able to continue they are just not adding more new subscribers on those boxes (i.e., the pregnancy box and mom box). That probably means you will get more makeup and/or skincare if that is what you want 😉

        • June 25, 2017 at 8:40 am

          Oh and I LOVED Eco Emi too! *sniffs*

    Once my box arrived, I was surprised by how much I’m using everything! And my coffee drink was Mocha flavor, so extra yum!!

    • June 25, 2017 at 11:44 am

      Yea! <3 the mocha its the best flavor! Thanks for commenting Elizabeth 🙂
