January 2016 PopSugar Must Have Box *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

It's an illustrated guide to the method, so basically it has drawings and things of how to fold everything and organize them. It's a companion to her first book really.

Except......it doesn't. Not really. I picked up a copy at Costco yesterday and thumbed through it and the drawings are minimal, and look like something out of a childrens book. I didn't read through it, but I really don't understand why they say it's "illustrated" because it's not, or at the very least it's misleading. I will look through it more closely when I get it in my box, but then I will pass it on to some one that was a fan of the first book and would like to have it.

I've only read parts of her first book and as a result I ended up going through closets and donating too many books to count. I felt so much better after. I did end up buying cheap clothing to fill up my closet again so it really didn't last that well. I'm working on really paring down and trying to buy a few things only but better quality and only if I really need it. It's so hard to do the same with makeup products and skin care. I go through old products all the time and throw away and I also donate and give away a lot but then I end up buying more. My subs don't help with accumulating products. I think the value of the subs is what keeps me in. Getting all these products for a lot less than it would cost to go and buy them from a store individually. Plus the surprise factor is part of the fun. :D I don't always end up using all the products in sub boxes but they still end up being a deal and can be used for gifts for friends and family.

My shipment has moved up to Tuesday but it is already in my state so hopefully I will receive it tomorrow.  I'm never the first so hopefully we will start seeing full spoilers tomorrow.

someone on MSA said their box is waiting for them as home per tracking. 

Why aren't people going home at lunch to get their boxes? Or better yet getting them sent to work? 

 

:) 

 

Ah well spoilers tonight hopefully!

@@boxesandboxes That was me! I'm literally squirming in my seat waiting to go home and open it! (as to why I don't rush home - unfortunately I'm half an hour away, and I don't trust my job to get nice things sent here  ;) )

Yipes! Just the opposite for me. I can't leave anything at home since a combo of the lazy mail person and the kids roaming around after school will scoop up any packages left out. 

 

Can't wait for your updates later!

I like this one!  I can always use bins in my small, older home that has very little storage until I get my closets professionally done SOME day!  The bath gels will come in handy for my 2 trips planned this year; same with the planner for when firing up the iphone is too much hassle when on the move. I have a million masks but they are always good to have on hand. Gum and chapstick are always useful and I will thumb through the Spark book to see if anything interesting awaits me.  Good month!

I'm set for a planner but think I might use this one as some sort of a journal of the things I did that day (that weren't in my planner) or something.

 

I hope the bin is a decent size....I have a thing for containers and bins so it will come in handy.

 

Looks like a very nice box!  (Now, the big question is when will it ever arrive?)

Ohhh fun!  I just got some new shelving units and am looking for pretty bins and baskets hopefully this one works well.  The planner looks lovely, love, love, love that color! I love the pathology eye patches so hopefully the sheet masks are just as awesome.  The bath gels look awesome-- I hope next box they send a bath tray and bath pillow lol.  Not a gum chewer (weird I know but gum completely grosses me out) but sounds like a fun flavor I m sure I know somebody who will enjoy it and my lips are so dried out from the cold I ll take all the chapsticks lol!

I'm super picky about planners and 99% of them don't work for my work schedule, but I can certainly gift it to someone who would love it. 

 

That bin looks amazing and I want it ASAP! I JUST bought a bin last night for my dogs (their freaking 4th toy bin, so spoiled), but I'll find a use for it. It's right up my alley in terms of style!!

 

Excited about the sheet masks! I've bought over 100 sheet masks in the last 2 weeks, but I always need more and I'm happy they've included them. Never used Patchology though (or heard of them)...mine are all Asian brands, but they seem to have good reviews.

 

Blah at gum, I really only like minty or cinnamon gum. Or y'know, bubble gum flavored gum, lol. I'll give them a try though. I feel like PS has been really lazy with the snacks lately :(

 

I just got a big bottle of Philosophy Amazing Grace shower gel for Christmas, but I'll eventually get to these shower gels.

 

I should probably read the book...I have so much clutter, lol  :couch:

 

Overall, I really like the look of this box. Good job, PS!!

    • When you have something that need to step foot out into the street, must you need to review myself to have decent and neat yet. Or maybe you need to makeup the back face, cool his hair a little. In addition to a face skin smooth screen, then hair neatly with the style chignon simple will help you look more outstanding. In these days of cold weather, your hair can be dull, rough or matted due to shampooing, so the bun hairstyle simple will help keep looks cute and more refreshed. If you are a person who love makeup, love beauty, then you should not skip this article! Here are 5 types of beautiful and simple hair that make you look great The Hairstyle On The Top This style of top bun is suitable for girls traveling by car or bus, not wearing a helmet, ensuring you are always neat, but also a little more height for you. This top bun style is a bit different, unlike the regular bun, which is the type of hair that knots, looking very different and youthful. This type of bun is also suitable for girls who have not yet washed their hair, can take advantage of the small strands of hair to make it more luxurious, hiding the scalp that begins to be greasy and itchy. Making: First, tie all your hair into a ponytail above the top of the head. You don't have to tie it too tight, you can loosen up to look natural, and you can release a few loose strands of hair around your forehead. Divide the hair into two equal parts, wrap the first strand around the rest of the hair and use a fixed clip to fix it. Take the rest of your hair, do the same thing, but wrap it in the opposite direction, and then use a peg to fix it. So the hairstyle on the top of your head is completed, it looks very dynamic right? Feminine Hairstyle This is the perfect way to put on a bun to wear a helmet, also neat enough for you to wear the turtleneck sweater and scarf without itching. It can be considered as a basic type of bun, decorated with a braided pigtail to add to the momentum, making your school and work days less boring. This is also a very romantic hairstyle, suitable for you to handle messy hair in dating. Making: Separate a small lock of hair in front of your face so that it will be braided later. The rest grabbed into a ponytail. From this ponytail, twist it into a simple twist and pin it with a toothpick. Use the hair in front of the face to form a strand of ponytail, tied temporarily with small rubber bands. Then, use your fingers to drag the braids to make the pigtail look loose and wider. Wrap it in the bun behind your head, then pin it with a toothpick and you're done. If you have a lot of loose hair, apply a little hairspray. Multi-layered Hair Drawn If you do not know how to create a chignon, you can still apply an extremely simple technique to create a special bun style, ready for parties. How to create multi-layered knots: First, comb your hair very smoothly, then take a part of the hair above the top of the head, divide it into two sections and tie the knot together. Combine some hair underneath each strand, then continue tying the knot together. Keep going until you have all your hair on the knots. Secure the tail with elastic. Afterwards, insert the ends into the hair and pin it with a toothpick to finish. If your hair is longer than the model in the photo, you can continue to tie the long strand of hair down the back of your neck like a ponytail, then twist it into a bun and pin it with a small clip. If desired, fingers can be inserted into the knots to create a thick and fluffy bun. For people with very smooth hair, spray extra hairspray or dry wax to prevent knots from falling out. Curly Hair Chignon This is a very elegant, elegant bun hairstyle, similar to the hairstyles of many famous stars attending the event, but it's actually very easy to do, you don't need sophisticated styling tools, but Just hair ties and toothpicks will suffice. Making: Take a lock of hair above the ears, twist it, and twist it to get more hair into the lock. Do the same thing on the other side of the lock, then tie the entire hair into a low ponytail behind the nape of the neck. Insert your fingers into the middle of the hair above the elastic to create a gap, then thread the entire end of the hair into this space, taking care not to let the ends pass through to reveal under the bun. If your hair is too long, you can place a portion of it on top, then clip it around with a toothpick. So your bun is done. Thanks to the double curls on the ear, your hair will look thicker, more fluffy and more sophisticated. You can drop a few strands of hair hanging down in front for a more feminine. Style Chignon This is a hairstyle suitable for the evening outings, creating a youthful look, a bit rebellious and suitable for dusty costumes. Making: If you do not have time, you can skip steps 1 to 4: These are the steps to tangle the hair on the top of the head to create a feeling of thicker hair, thereby making your face appear smaller. You can directly do it from the 5th step, which is to tie all the hair into a low ponytail, and then divide the hair into 2 parts. For the upper part, let's disassemble, then fold the lower part to cover this messy hair, forming a bulging bun. Use a rubber band to fasten, then divide the extra hair ends of the 2nd part into 2 smaller strands, use these 2 smaller strands to wrap around the elastic band and then pin with a toothpick to complete. If you want more momentum, you can use a curling iron a few curls around the face. hope you can choose for yourself a beautiful bun among the above. ------------------------------ Website: https://beautizon.co/
    • Try BB cream or CC Cream, avoid using foundations,I prefer using bb cream and cc cream as it suit my skin type
    • It is definitely the MICA! I cannot use any mineral products or anything containing Mica which sucks because all the good blushes and colors have Mica but as soon as I use it I break out.  I have no breakouts at all now that I am MICA free.
