Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope you have fun plans and that you’ll be safe. My husband and I have a little trip planned so hopefully I have some fun pictures to share with you. I’m excited to see what adventures will be had in 2013.
Now, on to my December Pop Sugar Must Have box review. It’s a little bit late but I get to blame the holidays, right? The November box was not one of my favorites but the December box was pretty sweet (sorry, it’s a little punny).
Bodum Bistro Mugs: These claim to keep your beverages warm longer and they won’t sweat with cold beverages. A unique double glass design make them functional and pretty. Now, that’s my kind of mug. This was the first item I opened and I must say they are good mugs. Considering most of the coffee mugs in my house are some sort of promotional mug or travel mugs, it’s nice to have something more presentable.
Tea Forte: I’ve had this brand previously and really enjoy their flavor combinations. The unique packaging is fun and the beauty of the actual tea bag is amazing. It’s always a shame to throw them away once you’ve brewed your team.
Jaboneria Marianella Soap: You may notice that this is not even in the picture above. That’s because I really don’t like scented soap bars and immediately got rid of it. I swear I had six other bars in the bathroom from miscellaneous gifts over the years. They have now officially migrated to a donation bag. Just not my thing.
Pinch Provisions Kit: What a fun (and practical) idea! You would not believe how many things fit in this tiny pouch. A perfect travel companion as it takes up very little room. Plus they have them in glitter colors!
Bogdon’s Peppermint Poles: Delicious. My husband and I are both enjoying these. Sometimes as a snack. Sometimes as an after dinner treat. Yep, we’re fancy like that.
GoSwype: Nothing too exciting about a lens cleaning cloth. I keep this in the junk drawer so it’s close to my phone which is convenient but I couldn’t tell anything special about it. It claims to remove bacteria so I’ll have to take their word on that.
Rent The Runway: I was first told of this site by a friend about a year ago. Such a great idea. Instead of spending money on occasion dresses that typically only get a single use, you can rent designer looks. I haven’t yet had a reason to try the service but I know people who swear by it. I’m hoping I’ll find a reason to use the $30 gift credit soon.
I’m still enjoying the Pop Sugar box which makes it a winner over Birch Box for me. I’m still using items from past boxes. Any items that I haven’t liked are good (and generally unique) hostess gifts or fab blog giveaway items (hint: there will be another Fab Five Giveaway soon).
