(Spoilers) POPSUGAR Must Have April 2013

I wonder if I should just wait until the PSMH box comes out and I can save money on a new subscription service.

Now that winter is over(in the next couple days), maybe everyone is done hibernating and becoming more active and focusing more on their health :)

 

I know I've been slacking during the colder months. I've been going every other day to to the gym instead of everyday during the week....

 

I'm excited if next month will have some fitness stuff. I just hope the entire box doesn't consist of it. I like variety.

Hmm I'm almost positive Woman's Health was partnering with Birchbox this month unless they're curating two boxes. Not that I would mind a Bobble water bottle, a certificate for workout clothes, a resistance band, yoga mat, etc...:)

Another Bobble would be a nice addition to the 3 others I own, even better would be the new hot or iced one (: I'm trying out FFF & keeping PSMH, I don't think I'll ever give up on popsugar, unlike I did with BirchBox after a year and a half.

I'm cool with these items, an umbrella too!

Hoping for a nice shaker bottle, a certificate for some new fitness clothes, another body scrub (can never have too many), earrings may be, a bronzer?

I can see earrings going really wrong considering that not everyone has their ears pierced/not everyone can wear a lot of metals in their ears. I personally would love some cute earrings but I'll be a little surprised if PopSugar sends them out. On the other hand, they've already done bracelets, a necklace, and a watch, so...it's certainly a possibility. They're going to run out of ideas soon enough!

Im thinking household/ fitness/ spring cleaning would be the theme... Ive only done PS for 2 months but I've followed the rest closely...

 

they tend to have a few themes that i've applied to each of their boxes-- Beauty (makeup, etc), Fashion (scarves, socks, etc.), Jewlery, food, home, media/entertainment, fitness, Bags of some sort,  and a category I lovingly call "goop".... which is body scrubs, lotions, shower gels, Etc. 

 

July 2012 : Bag / beauty/ goop/ food 

August 2012 :Bag/ Fitness/ Home/goop/beauty/ food

September 2012: Bag/ Fashion/ Beauty/ Media-entertainment/home/food 

October 2012: Media-entertainment/ Fashion/Goop/Beauty/home/food

November 2012: Jewelry/ fashion/ food/ fitness/home/ beauty . 

December 2012: Home/ Food/goop/ beauty/ tech?(phone screen cleaner)

January 2013: Fitness/ Fashion/ beauty/ FOOD

February 2013: Food/ Fashion/ media-entertainment/ home/ beauty

 

March 2013: Jewelry/ home/ beauty/ Food/ Fashion

Soooooo based off my extremely scientific categorization process, my guess for the April box:

 

April 2013: Fitness, a bag of some sort, Goop, and the usual Beauty/Food/Fashion (whether that be deoderant, bubble gum and a mirror.... or an Urban Decay palette , a home chef, and a makeover...  who knows)

Let's see if I'm right about any of my April box predictions:

  • Umbrella would fit "April Showers" (home) or some other rain accessories (a poncho or water proof tote bag) (fashion)
  • Yoga/Meditation items (fitness), mats, candles or incense 
  • Spring shawl or scarf (fashion)
  • Asparagus (or other food peeler) (food/home), asparagus is a "spring" veggie
  • Sea salt body scrub (beauty)
  • Sunscreen or other sun care item (beauty)
  • Unique toothbrush or some fancy toothpaste (maybe something all natural) (home/beauty)
  • Personal training session/gift card (like the iTrain gift card in the BB5 box last month) (fitness)
  • Fancy/flavored/healthy bottled water (food/fitness)
  • Hair styling products or conditioning masks/treatments/leave in conditioners or facial mask (beauty)
  • Hosiery or stockings (fashion)...to go with spring skirts. 
  • Stationary (home)
  • Hand soap or something from a similar...hand cream or bath soap (beauty/home)
  • Light spring fragrance/perfume (beauty)
  • Cocktail shaker (home)
  • A compress you can heat or cool (home)

Just curious what this 'posting for updates' is about. I get my updates just by subscribing to the thread.
I can't get that to work when I'm using my phone. Even if the subscribe box is checked, unless I actually post in the thread, the mobile version doesn't show it under my subscriptions.

Hmmmmm...I think I must do this differently than most people I just have http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/23639/subscription-sampling-programs bookmarked on my computer screen or iPad, then I go to my bookmark every time I want to check MUT. That way I don't miss new posts and I can see all the threads that are updated (those that I've commented on are a different color obviously so I can keep track of that that way), but I don't "subscribe" to anything...

The desktop and mobile versions are very different.  When I use my phone, I use the mobile version.  When I comment on something in the mobile version, it adds that thread to a Subscriptions menu button thing.  It pulls up *all* threads I've posted in, regardless of where on the forum it was, so I have Julep, Little Black Bag, Birchbox, Subscription & Sampling Programs, and every other group all mixed together on one page.  I don't have to go to each different group to see the newest posts in each.  

 

And then (again on my phone) I somehow found a spot where it will show me all new posts on the whole forum, regardless of group or whether I've posted in the thread or not.  I have both of them bookmarked:  The Subscriptions page so I can see just the stuff I've already posted in and the overall New Posts page when I want to see a thread I haven't posted in yet.  The threads I've posted in have a star next to the topic, and the ones I haven't posted in have a dot.

 

(If you want to see the difference, scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page and click "Mobile."  It took me a while to get used to it, but I do find it easier to read navigate around using that format when I'm using my phone.)

I use the mobile version too, a lot, and the subscribe button is on the right side of screen. It brings a drop down menu with the option to subscribe.

 

I also get a daily digest sorta email, so I just add a new sub by clicking on the active threads.  

 

Guess that makes sense though, your way does sound more efficient. I'll have to try and maneuver this site better. It would be nice if we can teach the mobile users by putting a spoiler instruction at the top of the every page (maybe a banner perhaps) to lessen the need to "white" out spoilers. That would be nice not having to go back to a comp just to decipher sometimes. :)

I really hope for some sort of emerald or mint accessory. I've seen a lot of those around this season.
I would love a pack of hair clips like the Jane Tran patterned ones that Birchbox sells (no ridges!) except in solid shades of green!

    • New here..!! I am beauty enthusiastic. Fashion & styling blogger!! 
    • We have rounded up not one, but five easy ways to draw that fine stroke of liner on your lid. You can use your pencil, liquid, gel or pen eyeliners and try out any of these five ways to apply eyeliner like a pro. So grab your eyeliner and take a look at five different ways to work the stunning eyeliner look in one go.     
    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! I think so!  My hair has been a disaster, an absolute mess. It just needs better care. It is long, and I don't want to cut it until I use up all my backlog of hair products. It tangles so badly. I can't comb through the tangles, and they just build up into matted sections. It is just awful. Hair products don't help. My hair got really badly tangled and matted this week. My scalp was also irritated from using too much harsh shampoo. I decided to wait an extra day before washing it again, to let the natural oils soothe my dry and itchy scalp. Ironically, the natural oils also allowed me to detangle my hair, even where conditioners won't do it. It still took an hour and 40 minutes to get the tangles out, I kid you not, but at least I was able to do it. It's ironic that the solution to my problem wasn't buying a product, but just leaving my hair alone and letting my body heal itself.  Also I just had a little haul, but don't worry - it's within my No Buy rules. Time to replace my deodorant. I got an Avon Rare Pearls roll on. Three years ago, I got a stack of Rare Pearls sample cards from the Avon lady, and I thought if I got the deo to match, it would finally motivate me to use them up. While I was looking through the Avon site, I saw that Avon has some really pretty new dental care products. I got myself a really pretty pink toothbrush that has special bristles and Himalayan pink salt! I'm excited, because my teeth are bad and need more care, and this will be nice for me. It's been a while since I got a new toothbrush. The Avon lady had a code to get belif samples too - is belif part of Avon now? No - I jut checked - Avon was bought by the company that makes belif, apparently, and also makes History of Whoo! History of Whoo is one of my dream brands, and I've always wanted to try it. (It's an expensive, beautifully packaged Korean line of products that look like they are made for a Korean princess or empress.) Well that was a good guilt free haul! Very interesting and productive No Buy night.
