POPSUGAR Must Have August 2014 *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

Just looked back at my order history. I was subscriber # 492 for the July 2012 box. It shipped late in July.

So they called it a July box in my billing history but it was probably closer to being an August box, right? 

 

Anyway, either late July or August is their anniversary month because I was a charter subscriber. :)

Shipped! 3.8 lbs...

That's pretty heavy. Here's high hopes!!

 

 

P.s. I was thinking it would be awesome if they included a Tieks giftcard. Seems like the right product for the target demographic. They look so cute but I have never tried them because I can't try them in a store. Getting a giftcard would push me to try them and I have a feeling I would love them and buy more.

I flat out adore Tieks. I'm on my feet a ton at work and these are the only flats that don't make my feet ache.

 

That's good to hear. I'm pretty tempted to try them. Are they durable? I go through my flats like crazy since I live in NYC.

Mine's 3.7 pounds shipping from Gilroy instead of NY this time.  Rats, that way takes forever to get to MI...

Mine initiated out of Gilroy, no estimated arrival date yet. It weighs 3.7 pounds. I used the coupon to get the free Turkish towel, so I hope they remembered to put it in there, since it seems to weigh the same as everyone else who has posted so far.

3.8 lbs here. Pretty sure that means I didn't get a hairdryer lol. 

Ah well.

 

I forgot about that part!

 

I'm sure it's a great box regardless!

Wow, wondering what they've sent us for that weight? I don't think I've ever had a 3 lb PSMH box.. I have had Memeboxes that weighed that much and they were packed FULL of great products.

I've also had several food boxes that were that heavy, but it was back in the era of now-gone Foodzie boxes.

Another brand of flats that are slightly less pricey than Tieks is Yosi Samra. I just bought a pair and I LOVE them! Joyus carries several colors.

I was thinking more of Tieks since they aren't in any store to try on. Thus, I feel getting to try them through a box would be. lol and low risk. I do second you on Yosi Samra being good. I've tried them on several times in multiple stores. Never actually bought them though - but I'm really picky about flats... Especially ballet flats - I don't like them to completely cover my toes - I prefer a little "toe cleavage." I think that's the reason I haven't bought Yosi Samras.

If a lot of boxes have shipped already, I have to assume we will have spoilers before the weekend. Someone who subs to this box must live near the shipping hub, right?

Mine usually takes two days to get to me once it ships.. so far it's only "initiated" so I'm thinking I'll get it Saturday. That being said I'm NEVER the first to get mine... so somebody will probably have spoilers tomorrow or Friday!!

MIne also initiated out of Gilroy at 3.7 lbs.  Once it actually ships, it usually take 3-4 days to get to me.  I'm sure there will be spoilers before then. I would love to get some sort of shoe!  Did they ask for our shoe size when we subscribed? I can't remember.

 

I find that I don't necessarily like heavier boxes because it usually means a heavy full-sized product like bath gel or something. Remember, jewelry is very light!

Ooohh, I'd love a candle!  I don't care that it's summer, I burn them anyway :D

 

Mines initiated at 3.7lbs from Gilroy.  I did not get the towel.  The towel is pretty light but I wonder if they are shipping separately, it seems like it would weigh more than an ounce...  Of course I think the shipping weights are sometimes pretty arbitrary so maybe it's not a big enough weight difference for them to distinguish between and just slapped the same label on them all.

@Saffyra  Hmmm. I hadn't thought about that. I DID get the towel and mine was the same weight as yours.

    • 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.
