July PopSugar Must Have Box (2014)

This subscription is so much fun!  If you’re unfamiliar, PopSugar Must Have is a monthly subscription service where you receive a selection of full size and premium beauty, fashion, home, and fitness items for $39.95 per month (this includes shipping and is available in the US only).


July’s theme is inspired by “hot summer nights, eating al fresco, longer days, lemonade, sunshine, vacation, and outdoor workouts.”  Yep, that pretty much sums it up!  As usual, there is a nice variety of items in this box ranging from beauty to leisure!


What’s in my July box?

Michael Stars Beach Hat This hat is awesome!  I have trouble finding nice beach hats that travel well.  This one is bendable due to a wire rim and flexible thanks to the knotted sea grass material.  I can’t wait to take it outside! Suggested Retail: $48

ACME Party Box Company Chevron Straws – I’ve been seeing fun paper straws like these everywhere lately and now I have my very own set on hand for our next summer party.  Suggested Retail: $7

TKO Jump Rope with Soft Grip Handles – I was just thinking I wanted to get a jump rope the other day and now I have one!  It’s funny how that works sometimes.  Jumping rope is a great calorie buster that gets your heart rate up fast.  This rope with the soft grip handles looks perfect for me!  Suggested Retail: $13

French Bull Ziggy Salad Servers – What a wonderful addition to my collection of melamine servers!  These colorful salad servers are perfect for summer parties and gatherings at our house.  Suggested Retail: $12

Dang Foods Toasted Coconut Chips – One word sums this fun snack up: YUM!  It’s such a simple concept and a tasty one at that!  Suggested Retail: $3

Sun Bum Sunscreen & Lotion – What a great duo for this summer box!  Between this sunscreen and cool down lotion with aloe and my new sun hat, I will be well protected from the bright midsummer sun.  Suggested Retail: $20

Revlon Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara – I was just thinking I needed to buy a new mascara since my current tube is on its last legs.  PopSugar Must Have to the rescue again!  I always love trying out new mascaras and am looking forward to seeing how this one stacks up for me.  Suggested Retail: $5

Check out my coordinating video to hear about my favorites from last month’s selections and see my reactions as I open this month’s box:

As I mention in the video, I decided it would be fun to pass on the goodies from previous boxes that don’t necessarily suit my personal needs or style to others who would truly enjoy them. The July PopSugar Extras Giveaway will run until Thursday, July 24, 2014 at 6 PM CT. The giveaway is open internationally. All entrants under the age of 18 must have parental permission to enter. One person will win the Sacha Juan Ocean Mist and Lollies Hair Ties set pictured below:


Please note: I did spray the ocean mist twice to try it out.  I have disinfected the nozzle.  If you win this prize you consent that you understand the spray has been used before and accept it as is.

You can enter by following the directions in the Rafflecopter widget posted below (check out this blog post for more information on entering Rafflecopter giveaways).   I’ll announce the  winner on THIS blog post and contact them directly through email, as always.  Good luck!

  1. I totally agree – every month I am amazed at my Pop Sugar box and how much I love all the stuff in them! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I was disappointed with July’s box. Most items are not things I would use, nor buy. . The beach hat does not fit my head. Paper straws? I was so disappointed when I saw the paper straws. I don’t like chevron patterns. Toasted coconut chips are delicious and I would buy those again, if I see them in grocery store. However, I enjoy your enthusiasm while presenting their box. You’re always cheery.

  3. I’d love to hear what you think about the Revlon mascara. I’ve seen it in stores before, but am hesitant to try it I’ve only really used their lip products.

  4. Yet another great box! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the UK needs a box like this! Someone on the interwebs needs to hear my pleas and make this happen! I love the jump rope- I haven’t skipped in years and it’s so much fun! I was obsessed with skipping when I was young!

  5. You look super cute in the hat, Jen! You should definitely wear it to the beach. Do you and Don ever go to the beaches in Chicago? I just realized that I’ve never heard you talk about it. I grew up on Lake Erie and while it’s nothing like “ocean beaches” it’s still a great time and some of my favorite memories from growing up.

    1. We used to go a lot more when we lived in Evanston and were walking distance from it. The beaches here are lovely.

  6. So excited I won! Thank you Jen. I love watching the PopSugar videos and I’m very close to getting myself a subscription 🙂
