Popsugar Must Have July 2014

Rating: Love It!!!!
Cost: $39.95/month

I received my July Popsugar Must Have box yesterday and I couldn't wait to see everything inside. I love seeing what Popsugar decides to send each month and can't seem to resist the spoilers to this box. Of course I peeked, so I knew what I'd be getting, but I was still excited to see everything in person.

This month I didn't receive an information card detailing what was in the box. I'm a bit bummed because I really do read them, but oh well. Though I didn't have an information card, this month's box definitely had a beach theme. Here was the first look. All I could really see was a hat.

So, the first item I'll talk about is the Michael Stars Sea Grass Crusher hat. I received a dark brown version, but I've also seen people receive a lighter tan version. I'm not sure I cared which color I received. I'm not a hat person, but I love how chic one of these hats can look on the beach, so I'm really going to try this look! I am leaving for a beach getaway this weekend, so I need some styling tips. Any suggestions of how I can pull this hat off?!? I'm not really sure how the brim should be, but it has wire in it, so you can bend it however you want.

The next item was Sun Bum SPF 30 Sunscreen and Cool Down Lotion. I love this and it will be perfect for my trip this weekend! Considering I usually just slather on my daughter's sunscreen, this will look much nicer to take to the beach. I'm happy that we also received cool down lotion, just in case I get a little too much sun. But even if I don't I will still try this because it has aloe, vitamin E, and cocoa butter which will be good for my skin!

I also received Dang Toasted Coconut Chips. I've seen people receive these in other subscription boxes and I think I've also seen them in stores and always wanted to try them. I finally had the chance to try them and they are already gone! They were very yummy!!! My daughter and I ate the whole bag! I'll definitely be buying more of these.

The next item was my least favorite in the box. It was a TKO Soft Grip Jump Rope in Glacier and Ash. I don't think I've used a jump rope since I was a kid and though I should be better about exercising, the thought of jump roping just doesn't appeal to me. But, I'll keep it around for awhile in case I change my mind, plus I can't think of anyone I could give this to.

These Acme paper straws in chevron are so adorable! I can't wait to sip lemonade through these on a hot summer day on my patio. So cute!!! My daughter will also enjoy them. At 2 years old, she enjoys drinking everything out of straws. These not only included pink, orange, and yellow, but also silver, light blue, and teal are on the back. I don't think I've ever been so excited about straws before!

I also received French Bull Salad Servers in a rainbow chevron pattern. I also love these! Who could resist these? I can't wait to use them for my next salad. It will just make it more colorful and exciting!

The final item included was Revlon Bold Laquer mascara in blackest black. I'm always fine with receiving mascara in subscription boxes. It's the one beauty product I never leave the house without putting on. You will never see me without mascara and chapstick/lipgloss. I've never tried this brand of mascara before, so I'm excited to see how it compares to my normal brand.

I'll be honest, when I saw the spoilers for this month's Popsugar Must Have box, I was a bit underwhelmed and thought I wouldn't get much use out of the contents. My mind definitely changed when I saw the items in person, in a very good way. I'm excited about the hat and sunscreen for my weekend getaway (this box could not have arrived at a more perfect time). The coconut chips were so good, they're already gone. And besides the jump rope, I loved everything. I don't compare the cost of the items to the cost of the box, because Popsugar does a great job of far exceeding the value each month (I think the cost of the beach hat this month is more than the cost of the box). As long as I like and will use a majority of the products I consider it a good box, and this definitely met and exceeded my expectations. Now I just need to figure out how to wear this hat. Please let me know if you have any tips. This is very very new to me!
