POPSUGAR Must Have Box November 2013

1 Comment

IMG_1499This arrived on 12th November and I was quite excited to see what I got. I reckon this is a little better than last month’s box (which I was quite disappointed with).

With the holidays kicking into high gear very soon, we wanted to make your life easier with practical but swoon-worthy pieces. From a cozy wrap to a new way to remove nail polish, you’ll find everything to get you through November and beyond. Of course, the season wouldn’t be complete without a touch of caramel apple or pinecone scent, so look out for that as well as a few items to brighten your Thanksgiving whether you’re a hostess or a guest. We hope you enjoy this month’s goodies as much as we do. Let the festivities begin!

I’m glad the little card that explains this month’s curated theme is included. It went missing last month and I thought it was just a lot of weird things that I didn’t want put together. I’m quite excited to say that I like 6 of the items in this box and while some of them are overpriced (or maybe just too pricey for my pocket), I think they are well worth the USD35 I paid.

This month’s box includes:

Where do I start? I love the candle and I can’t wait to soak in a bath with the candle burning. T loves folk art and aztec prints… but I love this scarf too, so I’m not sure if I’m keeping it for my own use or using it as house decor. The wine tote is handy and well-made, however we’re not teetotalers so if I’m not carrying water or a soda, I might give it away to someone for Christmas. The jam!!! OMG so freaking tasty! Okay, not jam… they’re preserves. I was in upstate New York  earlier in September when I bought a bottle of homemade preserves from an organic farm BUT I forgot to eat it and left it in my carry-on bag. It ended up being tossed at the airport… *sigh* But now I have a bottle of this great stuff! I’m definitely using the nail polish remover myself. This would be a great time to bring out those bottles of nail polish from last month’s box! And I’m hoping that at least one of our wedding photos from the in-house photographer at Viva Las Vegas will have a picture of us worthy to use the Canvaspop giftcard! YAY!

Did you get a POPSUGAR box too? What did you think of this month’s box?

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
