Yikes...I haven't even purchased the $100 boxes because they're so pricey for me- I bet it'll be fantastic though- excited to see some spoilers! :D

I don't want to say no, because I am a sucker for the LE boxes. But, I just didn't love the investment I made in the Neiman Marcus box, and I feel like this might be that type of gamble. So, who knows, usually when I see these boxes come through on my email, my finger becomes possessed, and has pushed the purchase button before I know what has happened. Lol

I complete agree with you both - for me they would have to provide really strong spoilers that would justify the $195 price.

I wanna love it.but sometimes the box makes it hard for me. Hope to see some spoilers first. It's a big gamble for that price point. Hope popsugar shows some goods so I can feel better about spending that amount again.

My cap is $100 too and even at that, it's a hard one for me. So I'm out on this one but I'm looking forward to seeing the spoilers and living thru anyone who will be get this. The value sounds amazing if it's $600+.

I've made the executive decision to get this box & skip the summer LE box :). $195 is a lot of but I think/pray it's going to be totally Ahhhhhmaazing!! The possibilities are endless-- I'm hoping for a fun jewelry statement piece!! No scarfs or clutches please!!

who I am to kid. I'm ordering as well. Just a little burned from the Neiman Marcus box so I want to pretend I'm not ordering. :) It's totally going to be great.

I'm so ordering this!! I think I need therapy for subscription boxes.  It's gotten to the point where I race home so my hubby doesn't see all the boxes at the front door.

I'm probably in too, I am pretty much physically incapable of not ordering a PSMH box.

Me too. I know I should say no because my luxury box obsession is getting out of hand, but I will probably order... I'd be more disappointed in myself if the box didn't sound so awesome

I am almost 100% sure I will not be getting this box. I would love love love to buy it but $195 is pretty high for me.  :scared:

 

Especially since my extra money in April was gonna go towards an Apple Watch.  :P

My problem is I only wear silver, I hate gold and give all the gold pieces away. Even that is getting hard because most of my friends only wear silver. It's the reason I passed on Rachael Zoe because the spoiler was in gold. Its also the reason why I skip other boxes from various people. This being a fashion box, I don't want to get it and find out there are gold pieces in it. $100 I take chances, but not $195. If the spoiler is amazing, then I am reconsider. 

Edited to add another crazy fact about myself...even gold hardware on handbags,wallets,etc will have me passing it by

I used to be the exact same way, preferred silver for MANY MANY years.  I have loosened up my stance over the last 3-4 years though, and it was actually because I would get gold in sub boxes and end up liking it.  I think the hexagon necklace in an old PSMH box (Heather Belle or something like that?) was my gateway gold piece.

I don't feel quite as strongly, but I know what you mean. I sometimes wear gold if I get it as a gift or in a sub, but I don't want the main item in a box to be in the category of, 'I guess I may as well use this if it's on hand.' Plus my ears aren't pierced, and my head is too small for a lot of sunglasses or hats. So this box is too much of a risk for me, but I'll be really interested to see what people get.

This is me too.  Gold just looks funny on my skin tone.  Silver is great!

I'm so tempted by this one...will see what the tax return is I guess...

 

I do get a little "over" what they say the retail value is of the box: it's often a couple of inflated products like $$$ moisturizers making it seem really expensive. It would be cool to get $600 of value in the form of 12 $50 products once in a while. I'm just basic like that I guess...

Yes, if they give this one the Neiman Marcus treatment where it's basically just really fancy/overpriced versions of stuff you could get in a monthly box I will be NONE HAPPY.  $100 picture frame, I'm looking at you.

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
