Popsugar: June

I cannot tell you how much I really, truly love the box I received this month.  What is the Popsugar Must have box?  It's a monthly subscription box that is $35/mo.  Get more details HERE.

Gorjana & Griffin Zuma Scarf
Description:  It's a lightweight scarf that is super versatile.  It can be used as a traditional scarf, a head scarf or as a sarong to cover up at the pool.
Price: $62.00
Review: It really is a very versatile scarf.  I love that it's classic nautical stripe and the pop of neon is on trend.  I would never have spent the money to buy this at full-price, but I am very excited to add it to my wardrobe.  It's very pretty and soft.

Juice Beauty Stem Cell Repair Moisturizer
Description: This moisturizer is made with organic ingredients that aim to reduce fine lines and fight signs of aging.
Price: $65.00
Review: I was first introduced to this brand through Birchbox and have loved it since then.  I would honestly buy more of this line if it wasn't so expensive.  However, providing me with a full-size product is a good way to get me hooked.  It is gentle enough for my crazy sensitive skin, but actually has a nice smell.
Bonus: Popsugar threw in two samples of the Juice Beauty CC Cream.  They included two samples to ensure that at least one sample was a match for my skin tone.  I think that's pretty awesome.

Hard Candy Fitness DVD - Addicted to Sweat 4
Description: This workout routine uses a chair to sculpt, tone and tighten the entire body.
Price: $19.99
Review:  Well we all know how I like a good workout DVD.  This particular version works on the lower half of the body.  I will say that I sweat more when I do my 30DS, but seriously this workout is tough.  It does involve a chair.  If you find that your chair is not sturdy enough, try placing it on a yoga mat - it worked for me.  My legs burned after this workout.  I will add it in at least once a week, because it's a good break from working my upper body.  I do not have a very strong upper body and sometimes I feel like my workouts would be a lot better if my upper body was stronger.  That being said after a vigorous workout I have to do some extra upper body stretches to keep injuries at bay.  This DVD will be great to give my upper body a day of rest.  It also provides an excellent ab workout (which technically isn't lower body, I guess).

Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger
Description: This is a sequel to The Devil Wears Prada.
Price: $25.99
Review:  I really enjoyed the first book (and movie).  I really enjoy reading and this is definitely going on vacation with me next month.

Project 7 Quench the Thirsty Wintergreen Mints
Description: Project 7 is a company that gives back to a variety of charities in America and abroad.  This particular product's sales benefit a project to bring clean drinking water to communities around the world.
Price: $21.48 for 12, so about $1.79/ea.
Review:  It tastes like a mint.  Seriously.

Popcorn, Indiana Fit Popcorn
Description: It's all natural, gluten-free and only 40 calories a cup, with zero trans fat.
Price: $34.95 for 6, so $5.83/ea.
Review:  I received the parmesan and herb flavor and the husband and I ate the entire bag while watching a movie.  That's definitely over the serving size, but it was so delicious.  I will be purchasing this in the future and I will be pouring it in a bowl to control my serving size.  Eating out of a bag can be dangerous.

Bonus:  $25 off of a purchase at gorjana-griffin.com.

Like I said, this was an awesome box.  This is the third box I've received and I have to say I am very happy with this subscription.  Interested in signing up?  Sign up HERE. (Yes, I get credit)

P.S. Happy Birthday, Tiffany!

  2. I completely agree, even though it was only my third box. :)
