PopSugar Must Have Update – March 2014

Remember last month when I said that the February PopSugar Must Have box was one of my favorites that I’ve received so far?  I’m pretty sure the March box takes the cake.  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).


PopSugar went with a new beginnings theme with the March box, which is timely considering the seasons are officially switching as of today.  This box is filled with products to aid in this seasonal transition as we “get ready to shed that Winter coat and welcome Spring with open arms.”


What’s in my March box?

ActiveForever Fusion Exercise Ball – This is the cutest exercise ball I’ve ever seen!  I love the mini size, although I am a bit uncertain how to use it as I’ve only ever used much bigger or heavier ones.  Fortunately, PopSugar provides some helpful tips on their blog.  I love the idea of using this as an accessory for ab and thigh work!

Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps – I have had these tasty snap pea snacks in the past and can attest to their deliciousness.  You would never guess that they’re actually snap peas in a blind taste test!  Even though they are a bit better for you than potato chips and offer quite a bit of fiber, I don’t recommend eating the whole bag in one go.  I like portioning out an ounce serving at a time for a delicious snack that doesn’t break the calorie bank.

Dogeared Lucky Horseshoe Make A Wish Necklace – I absolutely love Dogeared and own a few necklaces already, although this is my first necklace of theirs on the silk cord.  I appreciate the small, simple designs and sentiments behind each piece.  I think this is such a lovely accessory for spring!

Brokedown Blue Ikat Scarf – One of the things I love about my PopSugar subscription is that it introduces me to brands I do not know about.  I’ve never heard of Brokedown before but now I do and cannot tell you how much I love this scarf!  While it was designed for the Must Have Box, the scarf is available on Brokedown’s website.  The blue is absolutely stunning and the extremely soft, lightweight viscose material is perfect for spring weather.

Nature’s Bakery All Natural Strawberry Fig Bar – So, I ate this not long after I finished filming my video and taking the blog pics and let me tell you, it was YUMMY!  I’ve never been a big fig bar/cookie lover, but something about this was so, so tasty.  I love that each package comes with two pieces so you can either have both or just half easily with no mess.  It definitely is a bit of a sweet treat, but one that doesn’t leave you feeling too guilty afterwards.  I will definitely be looking for these during my next grocery shopping trip!

Baublebar Elephant Tree Ring – This is just about the cutest ring holder I have ever seen.  What a great little piece to stow your rings on!  I leave my rings on 24/7 except for when I put lotion on.  I’m  always afraid that they might somehow fall into the sink when I have them on my bathroom counter.  This little guy will take care of that fear once and for all!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum – I have used an Origins serum (Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum) every night before bed for years now, which I love, but I am always interested in trying new things.  This one by Jurlique receives rave reviews on Sephora’s website!  While I have yet to try it on my face, I did appreciate the light, yet hydrating formula and herbal scent when I tried it out on my hand.  I can’t wait to give this a go in my skincare routine!

Check out the 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 March PopSugar Extras Giveaway will run until Thursday, March 27, 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 Gorjana Brooks Jewelry Roll pictured below:


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. Gee Whiz I wish PopSugar would ship to Canada! That scarf was lovely! PopSugar always seems to have the nicest aray of “surprises” !
    You looked extra pretty today! Loved your hair with the braid on the side, very chic 🙂
    Have a Great Day Jen!

    1. I agree! That’s what I like most about the subscription. Hopefully they’ll extend to intl shipping sometime soon!

  2. OMG, you are so funny. I cracked up. Thanks for sharing. Also, love the pea crisps. I had to stop buying them because I couldn’t stop eating them. Yum. Love Dogeared. Still haven’t bought anything from them yet but love what they do. Fun video.

  3. Great video. It’s fun to watch you open these box’s. Even if they shipped to Canada they are a little to pricey for me. But they sure would be fun to get.

  4. I like the box full of items you got, that has to be fun. Thanks for sharing. I love the jewelry travel holder but I really don’t have a use for it so I wont try to win it.. Thanks though..
