POPSUGAR sent me their October Must Have Box to try. As always opinions are honest and my own.

I must confess that previous to this month I had never tried a subscription box. Never. None. Not once.

I've of course seen them around and even drooled over a couple, but I just never got around to signing up for any. At this moment I am wondering what in the world I was waiting for!

The October Must Have Box has me hooked. I actually squealed and jumped up and down in the kitchen when I opened it and peeked at the description card.

Silly? Maybe. But it's so fun! Sort of like little birthday surprises; I didn't pick them out, but I love them. I totally get subscription boxes now.

OK, what's in this month's box? This:



A little unboxing video I shared on my Instagram:

  • Power Your Happybook by Lisa Sugar - This is one of the reasons I was jumping up and down excited for this box. I've been wanting this book. I started reading it last night and am loving it so far. I just Love Lisa Sugar's attitude and outlook.
  • Henri Bendel Packable Umbrella - This is gorgeous. I can't decide whether to stash it in my purse or glove box. Probably purse.
  • Makeup Eraser Mini - I haven't tried this yet, but I'm super intrigued. It says that with just warm water it will remove even the toughest of water-proof formulas. Whoa. And it's good for 1,000 washes? Double whoa.
  • Rise and Shine Diner Mug by Morning Culture - Love. Love. Just LOVE.
  • My Cup of Cocoa Dark Drinking Chocolate - This is non gmo and gluten-free. It has two ingredients: sugar and cocoa. I'm impressed.
  • Brown Sugar Vanilla Shower Oil and Bubble Bath by Lalicious - Haven't tried this yet, but it smells divine.
  • ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen by Revlon - I've been super curious about eyeliner pens. I'm excited to test my skills.
  • Coupons 20% OFF at Henri Bendel, $2 OFF Revlon, and free shipping and 20% off Lalicious. They had me at coupon...
So fun. I love it all. I mean, a book, a coffee cup, eyeliner, and something chocolate...it's like they packed this month's box just for me!

Like I said, I'm hooked. I loved this box. I loved everything in it. I loved the fun of it. Hooked.

I can also see this being an amazing gift option. With the holidays right around the corner I'm thinking of a few mamas in my life that could use some sweet little surprises.
