Partnering with POPSUGAR Beauty last year was hands down one of my favorite aspects of 2016. For starters, I admire Lisa Sugar and the empire she's built POPSUGAR into. When it comes specifically to POPSUGAR's Must Have Box, I love that it's a subscription box that fits my lifestyle and my current way of living. I appreciated the fact that every month they took care to curate items that made life easier, simpler and more beautiful. And their December box was no different.
What I Got
This simple yet chic and stylish matching porcelain dish have both functional and aesthetic appeal with their simple gold trim detailing. Theses pieces are also very functional. They can be used on your vanity to hold jewelry and makeup or incorporated in your living room decor as a small tray or an upscale tray and dish to hold your keys and mails. The functional possibilities of these two pieces are endless.
Exclusive to POPSUGAR, I absolutely love the simplicity of the Baublebar's Snowfall Pendant. It' the perfect statement necklace for those of us who don't like wearing jewelry that's too bold or in your face. However, it can be layered with other necklaces to add more flare. This is another versatile piece as it can be worn for business or pleasure outings.
A girl can never have too many bobby pins! I was super excited when I saw these in December's box. As a naturalista, I try not to do too much manipulation to hair. This means that I mostly wear it in its curly state, but I have come to learn to love accessorizing my hair as a way of switching things up. I can't wait to add a little sparkle to my curls with these super cute and sparkly bobby pins.
The only thing I love more than chocolate is chocolate chip cookies/cookie dough. Seriously ask my family and they will tell you that anything to do with chocolate or chocolate chips is my weakness. While I do enjoy cooking from scratch, it's nice to have most of the hard work already done for you sometimes. This makes Sisters' Gourmet perfect because all I had to do was add eggs, butter, stir and bake! You will definitely want to taste these chocolate chip cookies!
For years I was mostly into tinted lip glosses and lip balms. Then I hit the thirty club and discovered that lipsticks give a more mature and sexy feel. And when it comes to lip colors, reds and purples have always been my go-to color families. So, I was excited to see this Lip Pill in Bunny which is a lovely cranberry red that has just the right level of boldness.
The best part is that it's a matte shade, but won't leave your lips feeling dry and cracked. It's also made from cruelty-free ingredients and it's small size makes it perfect for carrying around in your purse or clutch. And how unique is the packaging?! Definitely ordering more Lip Pills from Winky Lux!
Not only for color treated hair, this leave-in treatment is great for anyone looking to add more shine to their tresses. This serum also offers protection from harmful UV rays. After our skin and eyes aren't the only parts of our bodies that can be negatively affected by the sun.
Overall, I was very happy with my December Must Have Box. It was nice returning home after Christmas to find it waiting for me. Kinda felt like Christmas all over again opening it up and seeing all of the goodies inside. The products in December's box came to total of $138. A steal considering a Must Have Box subscription is only $39.95/month.
