November PopSugar Must Haves Box Review

Hello Gorgeous! I just got my November PopSugar Must Haves box and had to share! It is once again AMAZING! I love that these boxes keep impressing me month after month! If you want to get the December box just click here and be sure to use code REFER5 to get $5 off your first box. Hurry though, these tend to sell out quickly!

This month the box included Stonewall Kitchens Cinnamon & Sugar Doughnut Mix (yum), La Boite Gourmet Spice Blends, Gorjana Leather wrap bracelet (I've been wanting one of these for a while, but they're pricey), Snow & Graham Thank You Cards (made in Chicago, yay), Gaiam Yogalosophy Workout DVD, MOR Lip Balm (love their tins), a $30 credit to Canvas Pop, and a credit for a FREE t-shirt from StyleMint! So Awesome!

I've said it before, but if I were only allowed to receive one subscription box a month, the PopSugar Must Haves Box would be it. These boxes are always worth well over the $35 price tag (or less if you buy multiple months at a time) and they consistently include amazing products that I absolutely love! Be sure to sign up now to send yourself an amazing gift every month!

Popsugar October Must Have Bag Reveal

Hello Lovelies! This month Popsugar has put together another awesome Must Have Bag! I recently posted September's bag with was amazing, but this month also had some fun and luxurious finds!

This month the box included a hard copy of J.K. Rowling's newest release, "The Casual Vacancy." This book is a best seller and would have cost the same as the entire Must Have Bag if I were to have bought it in a store! Also included were some ExerSocks to help you stay in place when doing yoga or other floor exercises, some Pirate's Booty Baked White Cheddar cheese puffs, Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner, a Red Flower Petal Topped Candle (which smells wonderful), some delicious gummi bears made by Dylan's Candy Bar (which is owned by Ralph Lauren's daughter), and an OPI Pink of Hearts full size nail polish duo! I love the mixture of beauty, home, and edible treats they send each month and I still can't get over how much better this subscription box is compared to any other! It does cost a bit more than most, but it is definitely worth it to get amazing full sized products!

If you want to sign up to receive Popsugar Must Have Bags each month, just go here to sign up. You can also use the code REFER5 to save $5 on your first box! Unfortunately the November box is already sold out (wow!) but you can sign up now to start receiving the boxes in December! Hurry before those sell out, too!

PopSugar September Must Have Bag Review

Hello Gorgeous! I just got my first PopSugar Must Have Bag today and I must say it is absolutely amazing! Here is everything that was included:

For just $35 I got a super soft, huge scarf, a benefit makeup palette, a makeup bag, caramels, a cookie, chips, a new book, a pair of free movie tickets, hair ties, a note pad, face wipes, and a couple gift certificates! The scarf is not only gorgeous but super soft and as you all know I adore Benefit! The scarf alone sells for $84 normally, so this box was a great deal! If you sign up for multiple months at a time you can get the box for even less than $35! I can't tell you how excited I am for this! It has been a long time since I have found a subscription box that is this good. If you'd like to sign up yourself, just click here!

Julep Maven Review

Hi Everyone! It's been a long time since I last posted, but I just wanted to quickly share an awesome deal and write a bit of a review about my newest beauty find, Julep Maven! Julep is an awesome nail polish and mani/pedi product company that creates amazing products for your nails and skin that are completely toxin-free! They are based in Seattle, so if you live in that area you can even stop by one of their salons for an amazing manicure or pedicure!

I just signed up for Julep Maven last week, and I love the products they sent me! Julep Maven is a bit like Birchbox or Sole Society in that you sign up to be a member and get monthly boxes sent to you with new products to try. Unlike Birchbox, Julep Maven is just for nail products and includes only full sized items with a total value of at least $40 each month! Also, instead of automatically being sent a surprise box each month, Julep lets you see what's in the newest boxes and gives you the option to skip if you prefer not to receive one that month. Pretty awesome if you ask me!

Normally the boxes are $19.99 each (plus free shipping), but right now, you can use the code COLORS4ONE to get your first box for just $0.01- that's right, just one penny! I wish I had known about this promotion when I signed up, but I'm still glad I did either way, because their products are top notch! Here's what came in my first Julep Maven box.

Aren't the colors gorgeous?! I also love that Glycolic Hand Scrub! It has really made my hands a lot softer over the last few days, so I know they will be even more gorgeous after I've been using it for a while! It smells great, too- like oranges! Julep also has a referral program, so you can earn free boxes and try even more of their amazing products!

If you'd like to give Julep Maven a try (for just one cent), just go to this link and take the super fun style quiz. My style quiz said I am "Classic with a Twist" and recommend the box curated for that particular style. However, you can choose to view all the different styles of boxes after you finish the style quiz, so you can pick the colors and products you want most. I ended up picking the "Boho Glam" box because I already had colors similar to those in the Classic with a Twist box.

Once you decide with Julep Maven box is your favorite, simply add it to the cart and put in the code COLORS4ONE at checkout. You should receive your box within a week, which is pretty fast! So, have you ever tried Julep polishes? Did you sign up to be a Julep Maven? If so, which box did you pick?
P.S. Julep has nothing to do with this review. I just really love their products and wanted to share this awesome deal I found with all of you!

Sole Society + Me = Shoe Love

Hello Lovelies! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that you're off to a great new year! I have lots to catch up on, I know, but I just wanted to quickly share some recent finds from Sole Society that I'm drooling over!

If you haven't heard of Sole Society before, or just haven't signed up yet, you definitely must become a member ASAP! Sole Society is a shoe club that sends you a new "closet" of choices on the first of each month. Not only are the shoes super cute, but the three pairs I've purchased from them so far have also been of very high quality! At $49.95 a pair, they can't be beat! I also love that the selections are tailored to each person's style preferences, and that there's no obligation to buy!

This month in my Sole Society closet I found these three pairs of gorgeousness that I am having trouble saying no to. Although I can't afford them all, one of them will certainly be mine!
Hayden Glitter Scrunched Ballet Flat
Paige Stitched Detail Pump
Blake Mid Heel Pump

So which pair do you think I should buy? Are you a member of Sole Society? If so, what pair from your closet is your favorite? If not- sign up now by clicking here! I can't wait to hear what you all think of these shoes!
