The description of the bracelet says 19" . . . there is no way I can wrap 19" around my wrist 3 times. My wrist is 6.75", I usually buy a 7" bracelet. Guess I will have to wait til I get my box and see if it has any adjustability.  

I have itty bitty wrists (as in I can still wear my childhood bracelets), and I have three gorjana wrap bracelets that I make work for my wrist size. I wrap it three times, then when I put the toggle piece through the loop, I loop it twice to make a secure fit. Works like a charm!

Ugh! I really do appreciate this sort of thing in the package, but it makes me resent always getting mine last. Mine still has not shipped. It still says "processing" :(!

 

Otherwise the package looks really good to me.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At first I was a little bummed that there were no chips or gummy bears, and then I told myself to suck it up and just buy something from New Seasons. You know, like an adult. lol

I am especially happy to see the yoga dvd. Yoga is so more my speed than that butt cheek dvd they sent us. The bracelet might be pretty. I love the idea of the spice mixes and I always need more lip balm.

Thankfully I am only about halfway through the Rowling novel, so that will keep me entertained for a while longer.

 

Also, that "mint" credit should be good for months, at least, so if I am patient I could wait and get something wonderful. *If*

I really think they must ship geographically because it seems like you and I are always waiting for our boxes to move past "processing" when everyone else already has theirs!

 

At first when I saw the list of items, I was a little disappointed because most of it is not really my speed, and I'm not sure I could rehome those items.  But I can see a clear theme, I actually *can* see myself using all of them one way or another now that I think about it (I see a definite contender for my office's annual white elephant exchange!) and (best of all) this month is free due to referrals, so I'm not really bummed now.  Oh, and it looks like they're small items!  They won't take much storage space *at all*.  This is a very good thing for me.

 

(And I've been poking around the Homemint site since it's the affiliate from that group that is most my speed.  I have already found about five things I want to get and that I think I can justify ordering with the credit!)

The stylemint code is not for a tee. It's one credit for something on the website. They don't even seem to be doing the monthly tee sub anymore....

 

 

ETA: The credit is good on any "mint" store -shoemint, intimint, jewelmint, homemint- and is worth $29.99

 

ETA2: I just ordered two shirts from the sale rack for 1 cent! They'll both be good for jeans or to throw over yoga and gym clothes!

Def can't wait to receive the box now! I just signed up for jewelmint and have been on a spending spree for the past 2 weeks. I promised myself that I would wait until next month to spend anymore and now I don't have to!  This sub is def worth it! claps.gif

Make sure you follow the redemption instructions or you'll end up confused for a few minutes on how to redeem!

 

Someone certainly didn't follow those instructions and had a little panicwhistling.gif

post #278 of 834

Stylemint has a mystery box right now that has a minimum of 3 items for 1 credit (29.99) and jewelmint has a bogo code right now!  I am super excited about this box!

Hmmm I wonder if we'll all get the same

...Kinda hope not, since I referred my closest friends and would hate to all have the same one!! hahaha

So, mine was in Chicago (where I live) and then went up to WI.  I work for a shipping company and this doesn't even make sense. Even if their sorting facility is in New Berlin, WI the cost per piece is skyrocketing with the increase in fuel costs.

I'm bummed, last time I got mine in a day, but looks like I won't be getting mine until Monday :( It JUST left Sacramento and I'm in San Mateo. Last time it came straight from Gilroy to San Mateo. Don't know why it went to Sacramento this time. I was hoping to get my hands on my box today!!

Our boxes must have left together. I live in the east bay( just over the San Mateo Bridge from you) and my box left Sacramento around an hour ago. It might arrive tomorrow if it can get to the post office tonight. I did look at past boxes and it seems to take 4 days for me to get mine,, which would be Monday. But in the past it took a day for it to even leave Sacramento, which it did not this time. Fingers Crossed!
post #283 of 834

Woohoo, my box is in the LA area and is out for delivery today. Normally I'm usually in the last group to get the boxes so this is a nice surprise.

post #284 of 834
omigosh mine got to my local post office this morning! I will be so excited if it is delivered today! Now I *really* can't wait to go home from work!! smile.gif

Same here! Mine is at a local post office, but the tracking says to allow an additional day (ugh). Hoping for the best aka delivery today! :D

post #286 of 834

Mine is in WV and scheduled to arrive next Tuesday.  I'm trying not to peek at the spoilers because I kinda like the surprise.  

post #287 of 834

When I try to redeem my stylemint credit it says "gift card not valid". Anyone else have trouble/advice about how to redeem it?

post #288 of 834

Yogalosophy?

 

Bleh, so I just went and cancelled this box without having even received it yet. There's not a single thing in it that excites me. I mean, donut mix, really? I joined when I saw the awesomeness of the September box. I just wish I could go back and retroactively save myself the money I spent on this.

 

Ah well.

I'm a bit disappointed as well. The mix is probably the only thing that was interesting since I love to bake. I wonder if December's will be better because it's Christmas?

post #290 of 834

I've made the Stonewall baked donuts for a party and they were a HUGE hit! They actually taste really good and are super healthy relatively speaking! Excited in general for the box! :)

woaaahh what's wrong with donut mix?! haha I actually just bought some the other day, and it's the one thing I could never be upset to get a duplicate of!! This month's definitely isn't as good as September's - but let's face it, I don't think any will be (I've been wearing the scarf for a month and a half straight - that obsessed.). Over all I'm very pleased with this month!

 

EDIT: I just thought about it, and they definitely should have included a donut pan if they really wanted to "wow" me.

Besides the credit, ia with you, However, of all the subs I'm getting now, this and Jewelmint are def my favs. The content of the box is def worth the price of the sub, imo anyway.

post #296 of 834

Just got my box.  I'm in Anaheim, CA 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

lip balm was also french vanilla... 

 

It wasn't loose fitting but it wasn't too tight either. Dark Brown color. 

 

I only took pics of the bracelet because it seems to be on everyone's mind. 

 

Let me know if you guys want more pics.

My theory/hope is that the doughnut mix was in there as a easy, low-fat option for sufganiyot (although a large part of the tradition behind those *is* the oil they are fried in:  it represents the one-day supply of oil that miraculously burned for eight days in the Temple).  It seems like there are always Christmas-y things in these sorts boxes, so I am pretending that this is a nod to Hanukkah even though there is no jelly, oil, or yeast in it.

 

And when I first saw the contents of this box, I was disappointed, but the more I think about it, the more I like it.  

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The dvd (as a side note, I think they specifically sent a yoga dvd because yoga is calming, and the holidays are not.  I would actually keep it if it wasn't for the fact that I don't have a tv, and trying to use workout dvds with my laptop doesn't really end well for me) is going to be combined with something not-healthy yet to be determined for my office's annual white elephant exchange.  I don't really cook very often, but I have A Thing for spices since I do *like* to cook (actually, now that I think about it, every couple of years, I will go on a year-long cooking kick, and it seems like I'm coming up on a cooking year in my cook/not-cook cycle.  Lip balm?  I will always take more.  Thank you cards are one of those things I never seem to have on hand when I need them, and it seems more appropriate for them to send these out in the November box rather than the December box since the December boxes might get held up until after thank-you notes get written.  I'm not big on jewelry, so I'm not excited about that, but I'm sure I can find someone who is.  I'll give the CanvasPop code to my sister-in-law because I think she actually uses that service, and I know I won't.  I'll use the Stylemint code on something from Homemint because that's much more my speed.

 

And I can totally see a holiday theme in this box.  Yoga dvd to de-stress, doughnut mix because it's yummy and can be tied to Hanukkah if you squint, spices because this is the time of year that people cook more (and I can actually see two of the spice blends working on the doughnuts.  And in unrelated news, last year, I actually gave my dad an assortment of spices from Penzey's Spices, so now that I think about it, this would be a good gift for anyone you may know who likes to cook.  I was planning on keeping these, but now that I think about it, they might go to my brother.  He *loves* to cook, and they look like things he would use in rubs for meat), lip balm because it's dry lip season, a bracelet because it's fun to have a new accessory (and even if *you* don't like it, this *is* gift-giving season), and thank-you cards because gift-giving season means thank-you card sending season.  Even one of the codes is a bit more appropriate for this time of year than others:  $30 will buy an 8x10 unmounted/unframed print on canvas, so if your best friend/cousin/brother/aunt has a favorite photo (and they do Instagram photos, too), there's another easy, cheap present.

 

Man, now that I think about this box in terms of giving things as presents, this might actually save me quite a bit of money, time, and stress.  Big thumbs up.

 

(Of course, it does help that this was a free box to me due to referrals.  But for some reason, I keep forgetting that I got it for free, so I keep thinking about it in terms of whether it's worth $35 to me, and I would still be fine with the price given the fact that I can cross at least a few people/situations off my gift-giving list thanks to the contents of the box.)

post #298 of 834

My box arrived!

It was the exact same box as this......same flavors...same colors...same everything....

Quote:

This was my first PopSugar box and  I wasn't blown away. Although I can see how many people would love it....

Here are some more details....

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The Gorjana bracelet is really tiny. My wrists are slightly on the bigger side, but most bracelets easily fit my wrist. This one is supposed to wrap 3 x. I got it to go around 2 and 1/2...which means it won't close. Which means I can't wear it. Which means...give away!

 
The Donut mix is a fun idea for a treat, but who has a donut pan?!!!! I certainly don't. And have no intention of buying one because I would probably never use it again. Give away! Or bake donut holes instead? :)
 
The notecards are lovely. Always can use.
The Yoga dvd I need to use.
Spices...very interesting.
Mor Lip Macaroon...looks good, but will give away to a friend who's last name is MOR
 
I am actually most interested in the *extras*
The 30 dollar Canvas Pop credit and StyleMint free tee credit.

I actually received a donut pan last year for Christmas. Haha! And I think you're right...September was just super and it's not fair to continue to compare to that month.

I can't even get that far. I just went to the website- stylemint.com/redeem, and it's saying "page not found"? frown.gif
