POPSUGAR Must Have - November 2012 - Page 17

post #481 of 834

I just got my box!!!  The bracelet actually fits perfectly, probably because I have child-size wrists, lol.  It's usually really annoying when I can't get bracelets to stay where they should, but I'm thankful for them today!  I saw this same bracelet at one of my favorite little boutiques priced at $65 and I almost started laughing it was so ridiculous!  But it's cute, and I will definitely be wearing this quite often.  I'm also excited about the yoga DVD and Stylemint code, but everything else is kinda meh.  The packaging on the lip balm is really cute though! 

 

Now I guess it's time to start counting down days/ obsessively stalking the December Must Have thread and Luxury box thread!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, ladies!!

I can't get my Stylemint code to work, very disappointed as this is the only thing in the box that really added much value for me personally.

I contacted stylemint thru email as well as the chat. I am truely frustrate with this gift card. I have tried every possible way to use it. The person inchat said she sent my code to her manager and wpuld contact me back thru email. We shall see what happens with that i guess. I also just did my canvaspop code but dont knpw how i feel about paying 14$ for shipping? Did anyone purchase the canvaspop?

I just called my post office and they said they have it, but it won't be delivered until Saturday either.  What the what?  Normally I'd be all "whatever" but I was going to make the donuts for my co-workers on Black Friday.  Guess they'll get them Saturday or Sunday at this rate.

Finally was able to redeem the stylemint code and got the mystery box which makes me feel better about my monthly splurge(s) :)

I don't like when they introduce the box contents on the website before I have gotten my box (happened to me last month!)  LOL

 

Yup, even though I've been looking at spoilers I don't like when they introduce the box on the website before I've even received mine. It's like they assume everyone has already received their boxes. My shipping expected delivery date isn't until December 4! Gah!  icon_eek.gif

I am pretty irate right now, and i feel if anyone understands this frustration it would probably be all of you! lol!

So FedEx delivered my Must Have box to the post office last Thursday and it was out for delivery Saturday when i was home, i met both the USPS truck driver, who had other packages for me, and the USPS postal worker, who gave me my regular mail, no must have box. Monday comes, and same thing, i call up and they said they tried to deliver it and i wasn't home yet i was and met with both delivery people. So i was like OK can i have a redelivery for tomorrow, they said OK, Tuesday comes, i meet with both, no package!!! So i call consumer affairs they call my post office confirm it will be here Wednesday. Today comes and it doesn't come. I go there in person to the post office and spoke to the supervisor who said no its out for delivery and i said no no its not. They go to the back and there it is with the date 11/24 written on the side.

 

I was irate but glad i had the box! I got home opened it, and sighed donut mix which is nice, but i have no donut pan. A bracelet that doesn't fit my wrists even though they are pretty small, a open and leaking lip gloss, and a code that doesn't work on style mint. I just want to cry and walk away from Pop Sugar.

Not to mention in my rush to the post office i completely messed up my freshly done zoya glity manicure sadyes.gifscreams.gificon_evil.gificon_frown.gifbs.gif

thanks for sharing this, lol a small glimmer of hope for my disspointment in this box

Oh no! What's the deal with the post office people?something is not right. May be they wanted to keep it for themselves? lol

I sent an email to popsugar regarding small bracelet (as an FYI) and a not working code on monday. I just got a confirmation with a ticket number. There will be no updates till Monday now I think.

I would be angry too.

post #492 of 834

That sucks about the post office! Keep trying with your code, mine took a few tries to get it to work.

 

I ended up buying the Gatsby Necklace and Earrings using the BOGO code and the credit. So that was really nice!

I'm excited to get a matching set and even though it is in silver I think it's really nice.

post #493 of 834

I am determined to use those spices in the box before they go bad and I find them in my cabinet two years from now. Today I made a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. I didn't have any ginger or cloves but realized that one of the spices (Yemen) we got contains similar tastes/ingredients and added a few pinches of that into the pie. I tasted some of the extra filling I baked separately and it tasted pretty good.

Once you get your StyleMint code to work (and you will) you can go to JewelMint and take advantage of the 2 for 1 offer.

And pick up TWO bracelets of your choice. Or TWO of whatever earrings, necklaces, cocktail rings etc... you like. 

Then you can re-gift that tiny tinny little Gorjana bracelet to a worthy 12 year-old :) 

 

Hope that makes you feel better!

post #495 of 834

wow i'm shocked that the bracelet doesn't fit anyone! it's about an inche too big for me, so the clasp actually comes undone while i'm wearing it. i feel like they shouldn't have given a bracelet out that's like that, that's like giving out a belt or shoes and assuming it'll fit everyone lol

post #496 of 834
So excited for my stylemint mystery box.... Yay - I luv luv surprise boxes!!,
post #497 of 834

I didnt receive the November box (I get my first one in December and I am SO excited!) BUT someone let me use their stylemint code and I got two of the myster boxes for free! I am so excited to see what I get!

post #498 of 834
Please someone tell me step by step how to get this code to work because no matter what I do it says unable to redeem. Stylemint

also question, does anyone know how their sizing works? i only saw sizes 1,2,3, and 4 available. Normaly i would probably wear a medium and sometimes a small. I ended up getting a size 4 mystery box and now i fear that it will be too big but oh well i could regift....

 

for the doughnut mix i have a baby cakes doughnut maker, anyone know if this will work or have you tried it?

I just used the Yemen spice mix in a batch of pumpkin scones - the flavors work really well!

I did use the Canvas Pop code and was outraged at the $14 shipping. That's almost half the value of the certificate!  I ordered a photo that's 11x11 off my Instagram pics and it came to about $23 after the certificate.  I hope it turns out nice, or I'll be very unhappy about this purchase.

wow i kind of feel like an idiot now...i wish this information would have popped up somewhere but i was in a hurry to order the mystery box before i left for work. hopefully come friday i am able to get ahold of them if they haven't shipped it yet...

i was wondering why all sizes sounded so small, i was like hmm maybe i can squeeze into a 4...lol thanks for info

post #508 of 834
Are they shipping from the Uk? I think i read this somewhere!? Idk its os a little crazy to pay almost half the price of a canvas to send the little one! 
post #509 of 834
