PopSugar Must Have January 2015 *May Contain Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

Starting a new thread for January! We're not that far away now, especially with the Holiday coming up, I have a feeling we'll all have our minds on January boxes!

 

What are we hoping for this month?

I know we got a table calendar last January, and I wouldn't be opposed to something like that or possibly a planner for the new year! I definitely could use some organizing!

I would love a nice purse sized planner. I broke down a bought full size Passion Planner but I like to have one for home and one for my purse. And yes, I know I can put stuff in my phone - I just like to write things down.

 

I broke down and bought the 6 month Black Friday special so I'm looking forward to seeing how things will go these next few months.

i just found that pink fitness ball under my bed and it sure came in handy when i used it for part of my kids science project! 

 

ha!

 

would love any home items, a gift card for a month of a flower service would be amazing along with a fun vase!

 I would love a really love a beautiful notebook, Thank You cards w/envelopes, or another stationary set. A high quality, pretty pen would be nice to go with it.

 

 A large purse! Those Barbie-size purses are a joke and look ridiculous on a big woman like myself.

 

 A nice eyeshadow palette.

 

 A ladylike watch, not a pink plastic disco like the last watch.

 

 A pretty vase.

I was just thinking how sad I will be to stop using my rifle co calendar from last January's box. I enjoyed it so much I plan on cutting the pictures out for some office or home art project.

 

@@pbpink A gift card to a floral company is such a good idea!  I am hoping for something a bit techy this month (no earbuds!). Maybe a mini power charger that fits in your purse or wallet? Or even a small bluetooth speaker would be nice.

 

I also caved for the 6th month Black Friday deal so I'm excited to see what the first half of 2015 brings!

I am incredibly picky about planners and there's only one company that makes them how I like, so a planner would go to waste. I could give to a friend though!

 

Would love another calendar! I'm going to cut the illustrated cities out of the calendar we got last January and frame them. They are way too cute to throw away!

 

We'll probably get an exercise item.

If we get an exercise item, I hope it's something fun like a dance dvd. 

 

I took my Rifle Paper calendar down today and I have nothing to replace it with, so I'd love a calendar or planner. Or maybe one of those line-a-day journals. 

 

I agree with the comments about wanting a vase. I loved the little bowl from December.

I still want a wallet.. don't think I will ever get one lol So that's on the list as well, all we have gotten are clutches and more clutches, that last purse is not a purse, more like a coin bag on a strap.

I'd love one of those "quote of the day" things where you tear off a new page everyday (although they are incredibly wasteful). 

 

A 3 month membership to Headspace or some other kind of meditation app/website. 

 

An adorably packaged dry soup mix (good for a long day or gifting to peeps when they're sick).

 

Some kind of yummy, healthy water flavoring - and please, no more water bottles, unless it's a unbreakable glass water bottle like LifeFactory, then YES PLEASE!! 

 

I'd love a good neutral eye palette too.

One of those Q&A a day journals would be fun! I'd probably taper off doing it halfway through January though, haha. Like those Instagram photo-a-day things that I always end up stopping about five days in...

I second the idea of some kind of calendar/planner to start the year off. I love those page a day ones so that would be a welcome addition. I would also like some kind of scrub. Not a facial scrub but a lip scrub or hand scrub would be great.

 

I got a micropedi callus remover recently and I LOVE it. My feet have never been softer, so I would fully support one of those in a PopSugar too. http://www.amazon.com/Emjoi-Micro-Pedi-Nano-Callus-Remover/dp/B005XUNG5I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1419318751&sr=8-1&keywords=micropedi

 

I really hope this box isn't all fitness. One fitness item would be nice though as it is new years resolution season. I would like a resistance band since I don't have one yet. I could also go for a really heavy duty grippy headband like this one. https://www.underarmour.com/en-us/1242653/pid1242653-001 I always like fitness DVDs but would like one that isn't super intense. I want a Richard Simmons type of workout or else I will end up putting it off. Maybe Zumba?

 

I saw this and would love something like it from PopSugar. http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/home-bath/26706473.jsp#/

I have that pedi roller thing.  It didn't work for crap, and my feet aren't even that bad.  I was so sad I wasted all the money on it and on extra heavy duty roller refills.  Maybe mine is just a dud?  

 

I'd like a fitness dvd that focuses on stretching and opening up the joints, without being so contortionist or difficult that it ends up sitting there collecting dust.  

 

I second a nice calendar or planner.  And a nice pedicure scrub and hydrating oil.  Or Sarah Happ lip scrub, I've always wanted to try it.

Really? I have a terrible callus on my big toe and dry heels usually. I have to spend a lot longer using it than you are supposed to for it to work, a couple of minutes at least per dry area. It doesn't burn or anything so I feel like they label it for just a few seconds to be on the safe side? Anyway, it has worked really well for me and my feet are super soft after use. Sorry yours sucks. :( I am also really curious about the Clarisonic foot brush they just came out with recently, but that's way too expensive for a PopSugar box.

I am seriously in love with my MicroPedi.  I chose the rechargeable one b/c I really dislike battery powered things -- I never notice they're losing charge until it's too late (silly b/c I have a serious stash of batteries).  

 

I'm not going to lie -- I bought the Dec box just for the bowl.  I wound up loving the gloss, which surprised me.

 

I'd also like to see some sort of 'get organized in the new year' item.  

 

I'm a fan of those page-a-day calendars.  Once I tear off the pages I just use the backs for jotting down notes and such.

 

A healthy snack would also be welcome.  (I still have about 10 of those pumpkin spice malt balls from October hanging around -- just not my go-to snack.)

 

I just hope they wow us.  :)

I could only eat 2 of those malt balls.  Just too sickeningly sweet for me, and they made my mouth tingle numb a little when I ate them, which was weird.  I ended up giving them away to a friend.

Odd --  it almost makes me want to try them again.  

 

If I'm going to blow through some calories I want things like a REAL coke over crushed ice or a White Castle with cheese (might have just snagged two of those on my way home from the post office.)

 

I'm sure the fun snack request is a result of being bored with Graze (they sure do everything they can to keep you) and receiving disappointing Love with Food boxes.

Me, too!  I love this calendar and will definitely find a use for the adorable city pictures.  I would love something similar in the Jan. box.  Actually, it would be nice to receive a calendar/planner in the December box in the future so that we can start using it on Jan. 1st.   :)

I was hoping to get another fancy leather planner like the Graphic Image one from last year's holiday box. I'm sad that I'm coming to the end of mine. It would be nice to get another nice planner & a really nice pen. I lost my Nina Garcia one & I adored it. I also love the idea of a vase - something simple and chic, slipper socks, anything from Lunares, I also never get tired of candles & jewelry.

Question for all of you savvy ladies,

 

I stopped subbing from Popsugar before they did the overhaul on their website. Right after I unsubbed I reached the referral mark where I'm supposed to get a free box. I signed back up to get the December box, my question is how will I know if I'm getting my free referral box for January? Or should I email them to make sure they don't charge me? I just want to make sure my free box will carry over from the old website to the new one. 

 

Thanks!!

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
