Recommended Posts

I just got my box and I got the slate grey color earrings. There's also a 20% off your next Kendra Scott purchase coupon. The lip gloss was missing so hopefully they are able to send me one.

I got the same box w/ the same variations.

I ws surprised about the cookie mix pouch as well. That thing really photographs like it's a jar!

When I looked at the thumbnail for the spoilers, I was like, oh great, a box of crap (opinion).

 

But I looked at every item thoroughly, I'm pretty excited for the box.

 

The tupperware container is going to be great for me since school is starting up again in a couple of weeks. The wax candle is actually pretty funny for me to get because I was at bath&body yesterday and wanted a candle, LOL. The Shower gel, if the scent is up to my liking, I will keep, if not, gifting away. Bite Beauty, I don't like the shade, but it is worth trying and if not, it's still going in my drawer of lip products. You never know when you'll need a certain color out of nowhere! Earrings... depending if there ARE color variations, I might keep. I'd love them in an Ivory or Black color, but if it's that purple, I know exactly who to gift to. Protein bar, of course I will eat. The cookie jar I do want to use, but most likely will gift to one of my aunts.

 

I like the box.

 

I do want the FALL STYLE LE box but i JUST subscribed to Nina Garcia Quarterly and now I'm stuck!!!!!! I don't know if I want Nina Garcia or the Fall box )))):

I think you can unsub from Nina Garcia up until they charge you and they don't charge you until about when they're shipping which seems to be late for the last box or two. So I don't think you're stuck yet if you don't want to be!!

 

Now I'm really debating subbing for this. Not sure if I should. I would use everything. But I don't need any of this. But I want it. As long as my earrings were a good color, I'd probably keep them. Do you guys think they're the mystic iridescent? http://www.kendrascott.com/elle-earrings-in-mystic-iridescent.html/

Glad to hear there is variation in the earrings .. a grey slate sounds much better!

My box was just picked up so I won't get it till after our vacation .. unless we end up canceling because of the hurricanes (which might be the reason why I can't get excited for the box .. this whole uncertainty drives me crazy).

My card indicates that they are slate (gold tone though) : http://www.kendrascott.com/elle-silver-earrings-in-slate.html/

Uuuugh!  I really love this box!  So irritated my box is coming from NY this time.  I live in CA, my box should come from CA, not NY!  Now I'm more irritated because I want my pretties this much more! :-(   Next week should be a good week when it arrives though!  

 

Has anybody tried the bite lipgloss before?  I don't usually like plumping gloss because it burns, and cinnamon oil is a common irritant, which makes me worried to try it.  

 

Anybody else don't get why they're sending another lunch box thing so soon after the last one?  I think they would have done even better on this box had they picked something else besides another lunch box... but I'm sure I'll end up using it, and it could have been something worse, lol.

Isn't that so weird how they send from the opposite end of the country like that? I live in WA and mine is coming from NY too.

 

I really liked the Bentgo box, but I will say it is very frustrating how it doesn't seal tight. If this one seals tight I'll be very happy. Plus, I think I read that it also comes with a few sauce containers, that sounds very handy.

True, true.  I only put non-liquid/gooey things in the bentgo because of the leak issue.  I'm not disappointed if this lunch box is even better, just found it weird it was sent so soon after the last.  I hope this one seals tight so I can put liquids in it.  I do take my lunch often during the week, so if it is good it'll get a ton of use.

I like this box soooooo much! Delivery date says the 14th and we leave on the 13th for vacation for my son's birthday. I really hope the delivery date can move up ONE day. I would love to bring the towel I got for free (YEAH) and the cookie mix seems perfect to make for a his birthday. Fingers crossed.

 

Has anyone received a color of earring other than the slate grey?

CRAPPPP I apparently forgot to cancel one account and so I'm getting two boxes, because I ordered one yesterday when I saw spoilers.  CRAPPPP.  I don't think they're sold out to sell one, either.  I liked the box, but not enough to get two!! I'm trying to cut down how much I spend on subs and save up for a few things :(

Think you're ok as there are people looking to buy them.  Just the shipping costs might be higher at 3+ lbs (whatever it was).

Does any one else STALK FedEx for tacking? I am wondering if the expected delivery date ends up being sooner that expected. I ordered two boxes, one is coming from NY and one from CA. Funny but OK. Both picked up on the 5th but delivery for one box is the 14th and the second is the 19th. I understand that they are shipped smart post but 14 days seems like a long time. If I remember right as the delivery date gets closer the date moves up.

My shipping updated to 11 days from today. Why in Seven Hells does it take 11 days for a box to go from California to Texas? There can't be awesome spoilers all over the Internet, then it takes my box 11 days to get to me. That's just MEAN!

For folks who like those Turkish towels and have a Home Goods/TJ Maxx/Marshalls nearby, I found several at my local HomeGoods recently. One of them was the lighter woven fabric and was huge (large beach towel sized) and so pretty that I turned it into a throw. The cost? $14.99. 

 

Of course, now my local store will run out after all the local MUT ladies buy 'em out...

Are the turkish bath towels on ebay for $8.99 the same type as the ones from pop sugar? I missed that box but really want to try the towels!

Does it say what color the earrings are, it's killing me waiting to find out. I have some of her pieces that I received as gifts and this might match one piece. AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Any ways from the photo's I would guess they are the slate grey cat's eye but I can't be sure.

Mine's in New Jersey with an expected delivery date of 8/15. I'm in Atlanta. F Fedex.

Same here. I live about 3 hours outside Atlanta and it says 8/15. Although it always seems to get to me about ~2 days earlier than that, so here's hoping???

I don't think there are any variations in the box, unless I'm missing something. My girlfriend got hers and the earrings are described as slate in the pamphlet (I think it's these). The lip gloss is not the plumping one and is a pink that has PopSugar in its name. So unless there are variations in the candle or shower gel -- which I doubt -- we're all getting the same thing.

 

I have to wait until next week for mine and it's torturing me!

Yeah, but I'm stuck because I don't know which one I want moreeeee. Hahahaha.

 

Yes, I have NO IDEA WHY MY BOX SHIPPED FROM NY IF I live in the SF BAY AREA -___- Pretty irritating, said my box won't be delivered til the 18th (Mon) but it usually comes a couple days early of that on that Saturday. Makes no sense for it to be shipped from NY though.

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
