Guess what? I finally took the plunge and got my first “regular” PopSugar Must Have Box. As you know, I have tried two of their Special Edition boxes (you can see those here and here) but I had never dabbled in their regular monthly box….until now!
Not familiar with PopSugar Must Have Boxes? PopSugar Must Have Boxes are lifestyle subscription boxes geared towards women. The boxes include items related to beauty, fitness, fashion, home etc. In addition to their monthly box, they also offer Special Edition boxes which are variably priced and have a specific theme.

Each month prior to the shipment of the monthly box, PopSugar reveals what their inspiration was behind the items that they selected. This month their inspiration was: Spring showers, farmers market, outdoor fun, fresh produce and simplicity. I love seeing what the clues are to see if I can piece together what kind of items might be in the box!
Ready to see the items behind the inspiration?
Item #1: Dabney Lee Dottie Umbrella
As silly as it sounds, I was honestly very excited to get this umbrella! I’ve always wanted a cute girly umbrella and this one is just that! I love the polka dot pattern and the pink accents on the handle and the tip of the umbrella.
The umbrella is as functional as it is cute as well! It has a matching case and it can open and close with a touch of a button. It is 39 inches in diameter so it is perfectly sized!
Retail Price: $20
Item #2: One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant
I haven’t used this yet but it smells good so that is a good first impression! It is also organic which is a plus. I can’t wait to try it out and see if I get super soft skin.
Retail Price: #39
Item #3: Produce Candles Rhubarb Spring Candle
I am probably the only girl who is not a big fan of candles. I mean they are ok, but they are not something I buy nor something I like to receive. Yes, you can go ahead and revoke my girl card now. This candle does smell great though so maybe this will be the candle that changes my mind. We shall see.
Also included in the box was a promo code for 35% off orders at the Produce Candles website. The code is SCENTANDSOIL. The code expires on May 30th.
Retail Price: $20
Item #4: Flip & Tumble 24-7 Bag
Is it just me or is this bag genius?! I have a bunch of reusable bags that I never use because they are never on me when I go shopping but I could easily put the Flip & Tumble bag into my purse and have it with me at all times. I love it!
The bag can hold up to 35 pounds and has a no-slip shoulder strap. It also comes in a variety of colors on their website. Included in my box was a promo code for 20% off orders at Flip & Tumble’s website if you are interested in purchasing one of these bags. Just use code POP20 which is valid thru June 15, 2015 and it can only be used one time per household.
Retail Price: $12
Item #5: Potting Shed Creations Garden-in-a-Bag Basil
This it another item that I think it super cool! Chris and I hope to do some gardening this year and this seems like an easy way to get started. I do have to say that I was surprised to see that there are 9 steps for the Basil. I was really hoping for 3 steps. You know like, Step #1: Open Bag, Step #2: Add water and Step #3: Enjoy Basil.
Retail Price: $10
Item #6: Mott 50 $25 Gift Card
This was an extra item in the April Box and I was excited to see what Mott 50 is all about. Evidently they make clothing and accessories that provide protection from the sun. Cool idea but their pieces are pretty pricey. I don’t think I will even be able to use my gift card so hopefully I can find someone to pass it along to.
Retail Value: $25
If you have been keeping track, the retail value of the box is $126. However, because I will not use the $25 gift card to Mott 50, I prefer to say that the value of the box is $101 which is still a great value!
My most favorite items out of this month’s box are the umbrella, the bag and the Basil! I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of those three items….at least until the Basil is all gone. 😉
