I don't think many people go spoiler free any more. It's also a pain to add spoiler tags on a cell phone.

I think it's quite odd Naturebox is in this box too since they have their own sub. I don't think PS has ever done that before.

Edited to say: Nope, I checked and this is the one and only thread about the August Popsugar box and existed to discuss the boxes before spoilers were even available.  So, while we can agree there can be spoilers in the thread, it would only take a minimal effort to conceal them in some way so people who have been participating in the thread from the start (before spoilers were even possible) don't come back on the day a spoiler has been posted and see something they don't want to.  I thought from every other thread I've read on this site that concealing spoilers was the standard practice here.


I'm pretty sure for the last several months every Popsugar Must Have thread (with the exception of the one last month that did not take off) has had Spoilers in the title. I've found that if *spoilers* is in the title you will find info not concealed in the spoiler tag more often than not, not just in the PS but in other sub groups as well. It's more of a time saving thing I think since these forums move so quickly and for people on mobile the spoilers tag can get in the way a lot. Also I think only moderators can change the title of the thread after it is created so this would have had to have the *spoilers* in the title beforehand unless a mod added it later.

It takes longer than a second to do spoilers on my phone, which is why I don't bother when the thread name clearly indicates that it is a spoiler thread.

Not sure I follow the spoiler vs no spoiler thing....why would you keep coming back to a thread titled spoilers and expect to not see...some sort of spoilers?  

 

Although I do understand coming back to the thread check in on shipping times and other communication, but really if you want to remain spoiler free, the best practice is to abstain from the threads titled spoilers, once shipping starts rolling, until you have your box then join back in on the messages.

 

Anyway, this is the way the PopSugar threads have been working for a while now (spoiler is in the title so everyone is aware that they MIGHT see a spoiler).  Having two threads would be tedious and confusing and cause more upset if someone mistakenly posted in the wrong thread.

 

As with anything I think the choice to remain spoiler free is personal, the responsibility to remain spoiler free is up to the individual who chooses it, not to the group to suddenly modify the discussion based on the decisions of others/individuals who chose to go spoiler free.

Yes...this. I don't know how to do spoilers on my phone at any rate.

You couldn't have explained it better!

I think someone posted this weekend yhat we shouldsee spoilers monday plus we've seen shipping posts. So as long as you follow the thread chronologically you can usually tell when to stop looking.
post #308 of 623
I just don't like for someone to come and tell me I should modify/conceal my comment when it clearly says spoilers on the top. But I do understand how people may want to stay spoiler free and get upset if they stumble across an open spoiler because IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME before but I don't go back and demand for someone to cover up there stuff when I know this is a spoiler thread.

In case you already know your going to like the bentgo they have a deal on groupon 2 for $23. I really like the concept of these tbh and I was actually approached to do a review on them a few months ago but didn't do it because I didn't feel it was a good fit for my content (beauty blogger, not food blogger).

post #310 of 623

I think people who want to have a non-spoiler thread could create one, right?  Just sayin'.

I thought it was kind of strange that Ipsy sent out Starlooks products in one of their bags. I guess it kind of makes since in this case since Naturebox is completely different that PopSugar so i doubt they would lose any subscribers to Naturebox, lol. But the one with Ipsy and Starlooks is a little different since those subs are more alike. I've never tried anything from Naturebox and I doubt that I will subscribe to them after getting them in this box, but maybe some will? Its a good idea from Naturebox's side.

i know i'm being a bit of a downer but the theme is more fitting for september...if I remember my kindergarten calendars correctly lol wink.gif

 

I'm in Florida, so school actually starts in 2 weeks here! I like the back to school theme and I hope that next month they do a fall fashion-y theme. Dang it Popsugar, I was suppose to quit you last month.....

I looked up the bento boxes and it looks like the bottom is 1 big container, then there's a silverware holder (plastic utensils included) in the middle and the top is 2 compartments. They are also BPA free! I might have to get my husband one of these if I do end up using mine.

I'm in Oklahoma and school starts this Thursday here! I'm not in school, but I've got a little Kindergartener this year!  :)  So the back to school theme would fit for my area at this time.

I looked it up, too and was excited that it had so much with it! It looks like it could hold quite a bit of food. I normally don't take lunch to work with me, but maybe this will make me start, lol.

I know, right? I've never taken my food to work but I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea to start. I'm officially excited about the lunch box.

I have a number of bento boxes (not these), and they hold a lot more than you would expect. I need to see if I can dig up my guide to putting these boxes together. It's a bit of an art form if you do it correctly.

Congratulations!!! icon_cheesygrin.gif My kids' school starts in 2 weeks (Pre-K & 1st grade!) so August is actually perfect for back-to-school!  I don't know of any school that starts in Sept anymore.

There is a great website called justbento.com where they discuss recipes, and pictures of bentos. It's an amazing world of bentos. I love love love bentos. I think the rule of thumb is that the volume of bentos (in cc or ml) is roughly equivalent to the calories, if you follow the carbs/veggies/fruit/protein ratio for most bentos. So bentos are a great way to have a balanced diet that is not too high in calories. 

post #320 of 623
Thanks for the web site info. I live the Vento box I have but I'm looking forward to another as a back up. But I always run out of ideas!
post #321 of 623
I know South Florida starts school the last week of August and I know Nashville started the first of August.


First impressions:

1) The Bento lunchbox will be useful.

2) I have way too many body washes so it will probably be a while before it goes into rotation.

3) The apple bowl does not interest me at all but my grandma's kitchen has an apple theme so I'm sure she can get use of it.


4) I like to make lists but not sure how much use the notebook will get.


5) I like the necklace style but don't like gold so I won't wear.


All in all not my favorite box. The items that will get used aren't particularly exciting to me. Oh well you win some, you lose some and I've really enjoyed the last few boxes.

It is an adorable bowl you can use it for anything you want smile.gif
I was planning on using mine to put jewelry in like rings and bracelets and put it on my vanity.
Or in my bathroom to put hair ties and bobby pins. Or even as a key holder because I don't have one and put it near my front door and put my keys in it.

From the spoiler pic it looks adorable, quirky and feminine biggrin.gif

I can't wait!!
post #323 of 623
I was thinking of gifting the bowl and apple crisps to my mother in law? It's going to be her birthday this Friday. What do you guys think? will that be a nice b day gift or would it be awkward to gift someone a snack and a bowl to eat it with? Lolz I'm not very creative when it comes to gifts. :-(
post #324 of 623
I like what I'm seeing! I can always use something new to take my lunch to work... And the apple dish will be cute for my future apartment. And of course i love the necklace. I'm sure I'll use everything else as well! =)

I had a $2 charge from Orbitz.com (never used that site!)  that I saw on my account and quickly cancelled in case there was a larger charge coming behind it!   I wonder if that same lady was trying to buy more plane tickets! wink.gif


Totally off topic but I saw your username and felt compelled to share that I'm almost done watching the entire series of Veronica Mars in less than a week. I freaking love it.

post #327 of 623

  • Lavender scented items (or lavender tea, I'm sure more tea will result in complaints) icon_lol.gif
  • A colorful cotton or silk scarf - something sunny yellow, emerald green or bright blue
  • Sea Salt pedicure scrub and moisturizing foot cream
  • Fun new hair accessory for wearing hair up in the heat of summer
  • Reusable tote bag (generous size for taking to farmer markets) or woven straw bag
  • Tweezers or home eyebrow waxing strips
  • A new fall handbag
  • Toner for the face or facial mask
  • Colorful toothbrush
  • Plastic Salad/lunch bowls like these: http://www.pretapaquet.com/
  • Thank you note cards
  • More spices (like the ones from the November box)
  • Books
  • Fig bars (since we always get a food item: http://naturesbakery.com/in-our-pantry)

 

Assuming the spoiler pic is the box we're getting, I was kinda close on a few guesses.

This thread has ALWAYS said *Spoilers*   If you don't want them - don't subscribe.  I mean really!?  Exercise some self restraint instead of being catty to someone posting an opinion in the SPOILER thread.  Good lord!

Um just so people know. Even if you put photos in spoiler tags... they're visible on the right side column under recently added images lol 

but i guess only on computers.
