Phew, glad I'm starting with August box, I didn't renew in time for July & feel better I missed it now. This box isn't that bad... Although nothing in this box is a Must Have. June was amazing happy I got that box! I think next month & September will be better. So I wouldn't cancel just yet in my opinion to the new people who just joined PS.

Just joined this thread to see July as I'm thinking about subbing..

 

I LOVE THAT NECKLACE!!! Please PM me if you'd be willing to part with it, I have a trade list.  Also, anyone who isn't using their BaubleBar 20% off code, I'd be happy to take that off of your hands too!

 

So, do you guys think this would be a good birthday splurge for me?  I currently get Ipsy and just cancelled Glossybox, so I was thinking about doing a one-off for August as a special birthday treat to myself.  Worth it?

That's great!  I don't actually have the box yet, lol...just going off the pictures posted :)   What is your favorite box?   I love the Popsugar CONCEPT, but they have made some bizarre choices for a "high end" sub.  I love getting quality products and they are really getting hit or miss with this...I think they are having a serious identity crisis.  Do Not Give Me lame tasteless "health food"  and call it high end...there is another sub for this.   Was the bauble bar coupon coming in this box?

Well I'm kind of new to the world of sub boxes so I've only tried Ipsy and Glossybox, and out of those two I prefer Ipsy. Glossybox seems to vary a lot on the value of the box, and their slow shipping drives me crazy. Ipsy also is more fun with the teasers and the anticipation.

 

And yeah, I do agree with you about the health food stuff.. I don't really care about getting food items in a box, I'd rather have other stuff. I'm too picky and have too many nutritional requirements to have someone else pick food for me. 

 

I think the Baublebar coupon is with the July box, it comes with the necklace that everyone hates, lol!

You could, but the strands are different lengths, so it looks a little awkward. Also, it's a lot of chain around your wrist. There are always handy, creative people around here though that could probably make it work better than me.

Thank you! It might work as a headband. It does fit around my head, but it's pretty heavy and might be difficult to pin.

That's funny; well if you read my post you know how I feel about those coupons!  Unless the food item is gourmet, hard to find and just plain to die for, it is not a Must Have. If they are set on those loathsome coupons, just give a gift card so I can actually put my hands on something without all the restrictions.  I just realized I subbed for Wantable(?)  I don't know what to expect there, but I think it ships the middle of the month...it could be the Popsugar replacement ~ I will be in touch when the box arrives...

Call me crazy, but I actually really like the necklace. I'm pretty happy about everything else, too, though not blown away. The nail polish color is pretty ick though, not seasonal or trendy at all.

I found some examples for you guys. Of course, none of these necklaces are exactly the same as the one we were sent, but they're similar enough.

I agree it's all in how you rock it.  Paired with a pencil skirt and a blouse doesn't give a hip-hop vibe to it.

Lip factory on the other hand, has made it a big deal about the anniversay month box so I am expecting something different and special.

 

Agreed.  Seems it's a MUT-ers trend to anticipate "Anniversary" boxes as being something special, but if the sub isn't advertising it, I wouldn't put high expectations on something extra special either.

Ok, I wouldn't exactly call the example pics "feminine or classy" but the necklace would probably be a good accessory of choice here.   I will withhold any judgement until the box arrives and we shall see, lol...it's very possible eWiggy is getting some new jewels :)   or    I just may be surprised and love it with something in my closet.

I won't ever use my charm & chain or gorjana codes and I probably won't use the baublebar one either. If anyone would like to trade one (or all three) for something on their trade list I would love it, PM me.

I'm actually a bit excited for the ice cube tray. I bought one for myself 3 months ago, and another one for my dad for father's day because he loved mine so much. I was wanting a second one but finding it hard to justify. Yeah, it's only $6, but $6 for an ice cube tray?

 
I don't care for supergoop, just not one of my favourite brands out of the ones I've tried.


I'm, for now, even a bit excited about the necklace. There are some DIY things I've wanted to try but never wanted to buy a junky looking chain for (no offense to those who like it intended; I'd just look like a salvage yard dog with one on). Anyway, mine wil probably be used for something similar to these.

Got my box yesterday, still trying to figure out my reaction. I'm slightly meh but leaning toward positive satisfied.gif

 

The cookie chips were amazing! the ice cube tray pretty nifty, the tea? Well I made a pitcher but wasn't that excited by the taste of it. The nail polish is OK but a bit of a sickly color with my slight tan. I"m eager to try the supergoop for work days, so that is a win.  And that leaves the necklace. hmmm I got a very similar one in my Wantable jewelry box and had the same head shaking, question mark over my head reaction.  It puzzles me. I think it would have looked better to me in a different metal tone.  I don't mind the chain look, it can look good.. I just think this is a wee strange.

That is a great idea! If you decide to do it would it be possible to show us how, and maybe what to use? You just made me feel a little better about this box.

I joined Pop Sugar after seeing the photos and reviews of the June box.   I don't think the July box is bad, but it just doesn't wow me.   I'm on the wait list for July, and will be getting the August box.  I'm hoping there will be something for the fall in the August box, like another scarf.  I also wouldn't mind getting a nice candle or something for my home.  I don't mind getting food items in a box.  I'm always happy to try something new, even if its a bag of cookies!

I think where the coupons are concerned - if you sign up at gorjana gginsider you get a 30% off (at least I did) and you get a coupon for $25 off if you refer a friend who makes a purchase. When I went to the sure for this month it asked me to sign up for a newsletter to get 15% off my first purchase.

So, I was at Nordstrom today and they had a chain identical to the rose gold chain (except it was gold) but the size, double chain, etc was the same...so I tried it on. It's not terrible but I'm not sure I'd ever wear it. My friend seems to think it will look prettier in the rose gold. I think I am going to thread some ribbon through one or both of the chains and get a little crafty with mine before I render it unwearable. Thanks for posting the idea :-)
