My First POPSUGAR Must Have Box (featuring Brokedown Ikat Scarf)

March POPSUGAR Must Have Box
As a member of POPSUGAR Select, I was able to receive the March POPSUGAR Must Have box for review!  I apologize that it took me so long to get this post up, as this box is no longer available.  However, it will give you a good idea of how the POPSUGAR Select Box works. 

I myself was confused by POPSUGAR Select.  We are all so used to makeup boxes that I didn’t understand that this was a lifestyle box, not a makeup box!  Each month you receive an item from the following categories: Must Have Fashion, Must Have Beauty, Must Have Fashion, Must Have Home, Must Have Fitness and Must Have Food.

For my March Box I received:
  POPSUGAR Must Have Box - Scarf

My thoughts on each:

Brokedown Blue Ikat Scarf – This was the big ticket item of the box.  Initially I wasn’t that excited about it, as I don’t wear scarves!  I thought about giving it away, until I played with it and fell in love with how soft it is.  If any of you are petite and well endowed, I would love to hear how you like to wear scarves!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum – I have heard good things about Jurlique but my skin is out of control right now and I don’t know what it was that broke me out, so I will not be introducing any new skincare into my routine at this time.

Dogeared Lucky Horseshoe Make a Wish Necklace – I didn’t know what to think about this necklace, but I put it on for my birthday, made my wish, and I haven’t wanted to take it off since!  Which is weird, because I have trouble wearing most necklaces.  Either they get tangled in my hair or I feel like it’s choking me.  I have none of those problems with this necklace!  When it breaks, my wish is supposed to come true!  And as much as I would like that to happen, I want to keep wearing this necklace!

BaubleBar Elephant Ring Tree – I think this is adorable.  Since I work retail and have a very physical job, I do not wear jewelry to work.  Hopefully I can put this to good use some day, but for now he will sit on my Expedit and keep me company.

ActiveForever Fusion Exercise Ball – The ball arrived deflated.  It was supposed to come with a straw to blow it up but I couldn’t find it!  I managed to inflate it the old fashion way.  Not really sure if I will use it as it’s intended (you can follow the idea’s in the post on POPSUGAR’s blog) but it makes a great dodgeball!

 Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps – I ignored these until today.  They sat, unwanted and unloved, in the corner of my room.  I finally opened them today AND ATE THE WHOLE BAG.  I will definitely be buying more this weekend!

Nature's Bakery All Natural Stone Ground Whole Wheat Strawberry Fig Bars – I am glad this was considered an extra because I don’t like figs.  I tried it, just to make sure.  And I STILL don’t like figs!

I also received discount codes for Jurlique (15%), Baublebar (20%) and Dogeared (20%).

Overall, I am very happy with this box and would not have minded paying $39.99 for it!  My favorite items (if you can’t tell) are the scarf, the Make a Wish Necklace and the Harvest Snaps.

What do you think of the idea of a lifestyle box?  Have you ever purchased one from POPSUGAR?
