Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Summer Box

I can't believe Popsugar came out with not one but TWO special edition boxes in less than 3 months! Yes, I did partake in both of them. And unlike the spring box, this one seemed to ship super fast, even before they said it would!

Here is what was in the box:




Now for a closer look:



One of my favorite items in this box is the Horn Necklace from Soixante Neuf Jewels by Joie Jager. I never really wore gold jewelry until I started getting Popsugar boxes. Now I wear it all the time and feel quite trendy! I love the turquoise and gold together. I may have to go shopping and find a shirt just to match this! Retail value: $155


I love, love, love these little glasses! They will make a perfect compliment to my already mis-matched glassware collection. They feel very high quality and will make awesome juice glasses. They are from Sisters of Los Angeles called City Rock glasses, and they made this design exclusively for Popsugar! They have to be hand washed. Retail value: $45


The next item is a CUTE little pouch/purse. It is so summery looking! I can't wait to transfer all my stuff and carry it around! I do wish it had a strap, so I may try to put one on it (or get my Mom to!!), but it is so cute that I will definitely use it. The design is New Hanging Palm and it is from Samudra. Retail value: $60


I tried the Ocean Mist by Sachajuan this morning. It is supposed to give you "beach hair" and I found that it did indeed do as promised. Now if I could only get to the beach...  Oh and this smells fantastic!
 Retail value: $18


I love lip crayons, so the Tarte Lipsurgence Power Pigment is right up my alley. The color will be great for summer, too! Retail value: $24
 There was also a Tarte Cheek Stain in the color Tipsy. I am not sure I will use the cheek stain, so it will probably end up being gifted. $30


Popsugar usually includes a food item and this time they put Eliunt Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the box. I'm certain this will be a good addition to my cooking collection. I could not find this sold individually, so I am estimating the ARV based on the package prices. Retail value: $15

Overall this was a great box. I come up with a total value of $347! Wowsers! That is an awesome deal for $100!

You, too, can subscribe to Popsugar! Just CLICK HERE and sign up. The normal boxes are $39.99/month and get a little cheaper if you buy more months at once. Make sure you use code REFER5 to get $5 off your first box.

Popsugar Must Have May 2014

Yes, it's my favorite subscription box! Actually the only subscription box I am currently subscribed to. I have tried others, but none (so far) can hold a candle to Popsugar, at least not for that price.

Behold....the Popsugar Must Have box for May 2014!!




Ahhh, the smell of summer. The beach, flowers, sand.... This is the scent of Smellbent by St. Tropez. To me, this scent embodies summer and as I am getting ready to be on my summer break from school, this scent makes me extremely joyous! When I first saw photos of this product online, I was a little disappointed because of how the bottle looked. I thought it would be a plastic spray bottle. However, it turned out to be a glass bottle that feels like quality. This perfume retails for $45/50 mL.


I have been wanting to try an infuser bottle and now I will have my chance with the Citrus Zinger bottle from Zing Anything. I will try it with lemons and oranges as it says but I will also try it with my favorite fruit, strawberries! It will be great for taking on outings this summer. Retails for $16.99 and apparently there is a high demand for these because their website says to allow 14 days for processing.


A sleep mask? I probably will never wear this.Actually, I will likely not ever take this out of the package.  I have absolutely no trouble falling asleep at night; as soon as my head hits the pillow I am out. There are a few items that I have gotten over the past two years that I will just not use or don't like (not many, though!). I usually regift, I have never actually sold anything I have gotten from Popsugar. It's not that I don't like money, but I do love to see reactions when I just give away some high end item. I will probably bless someone else with this mask. This Luxury Sleep Mask from Kerry Cassill retails for $24.



 Probably the coolest thing about this next item is the name. I am referring to a cool blue color of nail polish by Obsessive Compulsive called Pool Boy. I love it! It will look great with my flip flops. Pool Boy by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics $10. The color is richer than the picture shows; it is more of a light turquoise meets sky blue. It will be very nice on my toes! I have been wanting to try "tie dye" nails, and I think this color mixed with a couple of more would look great.



Yummy! That is the word to describe Hi I'm Skinny Sticks in Sweet Onion. Very tasty indeed! And with a fraction of the fat and calories of regular chips. The only problem with this is eating too many! ARV $3.00



To compliment the Sweet Onion Skinny Sticks, Popsugar included a workout DVD, One Day Fat Blast by Tone It Up. I have really been trying to get outside more since the weather is nice, but maybe I'll give it a shot. If I like it well enough, I will donate to my friend who owns a gym because it is much more fun and motivating to workout with a group. ARV $10


The last item I will tell you about is a peace offering from Popsugar regarding the shipping mishaps with the Special Edition Resort Box. I had absolutely no problems, in fact, I was one of the first ones to receive a box. I guess Popsugar wanted to play nice and give everyone a little gift who ordered the box. It is Anti-Aging Lip Spread from vbeaute ($19). It is a nice pink color on my lips and feels very smooth. Thank you, Popsugar, for the extra treat!


Once again, I am very pleased with this box and will use every item (except for the sleep mask).

Turning 40, the End or Just the Beginning?


Yes, it is about to happen. I only have a few more days left to officially be in my 30's. Yikes! Does it count that I still feel 23 inside? 

I could freak out. I could have a mid-life crisis, driving my husband to the brink of insanity. I could cry and throw a fit.

Or I could look at my life as it sits and ponder about where I have come from, where I am going, and the journey that will take me there.

I feel like I have accomplished a lot during my first 40 years here on earth. Are there things I haven't done? Sure. If there were not, then I guess I'd be dead. I remember when I turned 30 and was unsettled about no longer being 20-something, my mother said, "Well it's better than the alternative!". And she was right. I have done a LOT of living and gone through plenty of life changes in the past 10 years.

I met my now-husband when I was 33. That meeting is a definite positive! He has really changed my life, my perspective on things. I am in such a better place now that when we first met. My kids are now 14 and 17, and becoming adults quickly (too quickly for my taste), and I am very pleased with the way they have turned out. I am working in a local high school as the librarian and I absolutely LOVE my job. I guess you can say I'm in a pretty grand place right now.

One thing I am really liking about being this age is that I really could care less what people think. I can do my own thing without worry what this one or that is going to say. I can go to the store without make-up or fixing my hair. I can wear comfortable shoes like I don't have a care in the world! Yes, I do like to look fashionable and trendy (no "mom" jeans for me!!!), but I can go for slouchy on Saturday mornings without caring if someone sees me.

Yes, I'm getting some wrinkles and yes, I've got a few gray hairs. Would I want to go back to my 20's? No way! I can buy eye cream and hair color.

I will move into my 40th decade gracefully and with a smile on my face (along with a few "laugh lines"). Hello, 40, here I come!

Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Resort Box

Make sure you like Beauty4Divas on Facebook!


The long anticipated Popsugar Must Have Resort Box.

With all it's shipping controversy.

Here it is:



And I have to say that I love every item  included in the box! From the taffy to the towel, it's all good stuff.

The Sisco Berluti Bracelet Stack is absolutely beautiful! This will be a piece I will love wearing. It's funny because I never wore gold jewelry until Popsugar came along. Now I have several nice pieces of jewelry from them, all in gold, and I feel quite stylish! I couldn't find the exact set on Sisco Berluti's website, but some similiar sets sell for $176! 



I have never had a Turkish towel before, come to think of it, I had never heard of a Turkish towel before either! That is one thing I love about Popsugar, finding awesome new products. This towel is so soft and light and made from a 50/50 blend of cotton and bamboo. I think it will be great this summer for taking to the pool or beach. I can't wait for summer to get here so I can use it. Since it is so light, it can easily fold up and not take up much room in a bag. This Cuyana Turkish Towel retails for $55. I can probably even fit this towel in my suitcase when I go to Germany this summer. I don't know if I will need a blanket on the plane, but I think this towel would work nicely!



I love, love, love trying new body wash! Some could even say that I have a slight addiction. That is why I was super excited when I saw the Epicuren Discovery Tropical Lave body wash. It smells so nice! As soon as my current body wash runs out, I will definitely be using this. Popsugar sent a generous 8.4 oz. tube, which retails for $24.



Popsugar included a clutch in this box from R.B. of McD. They sent out two different colors, a tan/navy and an all navy. I got the all navy one. The upper part is canvas and the lower part is leather. This will come in very handy for carrying small items or for putting into a larger bag (cell phone and wallet inside beach bag). This one was made exclusively for Popsugar, so I'm not sure of a price. An all leather one of the same size retails for $180. I will value this one at $100. 



In the winter I need extra moisture for my face and skin, but when warm weather comes around my skin looks oily if I wear anything too heavy. That's why this next product is so great. Clark Botanical's Cellular Lifting Moisture Mist goes on so lightly and smells so nice. This product will be great to add just the right amount of moisture without weighing me down. And it has anti-aging properties for my nearly 40-year-old skin. Hooray! I really do love this product even after only a few uses. This travel size costs $28.


OK, blue and gold eyeliner? Perhaps I will feel brave soon and use the Santigolden Age: Double-Ended Limitless Eyeliner from Smashbox. I have seen some good looks with this online and I will probably try it soon. This eyeliner retails for $24.


Finally, a little snack to help get through the day. Salty Road Salt Water Taffy in Salty Caramel Apple. I brought this to school with me today because if I open it at home I will likely eat it all. If I share, maybe I will stop at one or two pieces! Retails for $6.50


Overall, this is a completely fantastic and wonderful box. I will definitely use and enjoy every item inside. The value I have come up with for this box is $413.50! That is amazing considering the price of the box was $100.

Regular Popsugar boxes are only $39.99 with free shipping. The value of the regular boxes is usually over $100, so it is always a great deal.

Popsugar Must Have March 2014

I didn't think this box would EVER get here! We had an ice storm the first full week of March, which was when my latest Popsugar Must Have box was shipped. I guess all the ice delayed the shipment, but it seemed like it took forever to get here!

Nonetheless, it finally arrived last Wednesday. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed what was inside this box. In my opinion, it is the best box in a while from Popsugar (hey, my blog, my opinion)


If you will notice in the box, there is one package that is obviously gaping open. The reason for this unsightlyness is due largely to the fact that I was starving when the box came and upon seeing a snack that actually fit in with my diet I tore open the package and went to town.

The product I am referring to is in no way the most expensive or exclusive item in the box, but it was the most tasty!  Harvest Snapea Crisps. They are unbelievably tasty! Healthy, too. It seems they run about $2.25/bag.



Since we're on the subject of food, I will now move on to the strawberry bar. If there is any fruit that I absolutely love, it is strawberries. Nature's Bakery Strawberry Fig Bar is amazing. I ate it for breakfast and it was very filling along with being delicious. I may have to make a purchase! You can get these for $7.50/12 pack on Amazon as an add-on item.



Now, getting past the food, I will show my favorite item. Let me just say that I LOVE the Brokedown scarf from another box. It is my favorite scarf to wear. I was so excited to see ANOTHER Brokedown scarf! And one I can wear in the spring because it is very light and looks like a watercolor painting. The Brokedown Blue Ikat Scarf sells for $72 on Brokedown's website.


This is the 2nd month in a row that Popsugar has included a facial serum. The facial serum last month was a bit too oily for my skin, but this one is just right. It has a nice scent, too. Jurilique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum retails for $54 on their website.


The next two items were of great interest to my 14 year old daughter. She put on the Lucky Horseshoe Necklace from Dogeared this morning and told me that she made a wish. She will be ecstatic when the charm falls off. $30.00  And she took off with the cute little elephant ring holder saying that she was going to put her "baubles" on it's trunk. The Baublebar Elephant Tree Ring, so cute for $12.00 (sold out at present).





The last item I will tell you about is the exercise ball. I go to the gym quite frequently, but I have never seen an exercise ball this small without weights. I will have to do some reading to find out just what kind of exercises are best with this ball. The ActiveForever Fusion Exercise Ball can be purchased for $9.95 from the ActiveForever website. Until I figure out what to do with this ball, I guess hubby can play with it in his recliner!



In my opinion, this was an excellent box. In fact, the best box Popsugar has put out in a while. I or my family members will enjoy every item inside! In addition to this being an awesome box, I get the value somewhere in the $180 range!
