  • Posted on September 1, 2012 at 1:59 AM

Introducing the POPSUGAR Must Have Bag! It’s a monthly subscription, filled with all of your favorite things. Every month, PopSugar editors will curate an exciting bag full of fun, must-have products from fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more. Their customized collection will include tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands you’ve yet to discover. Unlike most subscriptions, these are all full-sized products! Total retail is around $100. Subscriptions are $35 a month (free shipping) with other options (3mo, 6mo, and yearly).

I missed out on the first ever bag last month, but as soon as I saw what I missed I whined until Steve let me join ANOTHER subscription service. 🙂

I got my box today and holy cow it was huge! Here is what was inside.


Gotta love the cutesy tissue! Reminds me of shopping at high-end stores where they wrap your stuff in paper before they stuff it into your fancy bag. LOVE IT! I love anything that makes me feel special. Maybe spoiled is a better term. hehehe

One one hand I couldn’t wait to rip the tissue open. On the other, I didn’t want to! There is always next month to look forward to. Yes, next month. I am keeping this subscription for now.




Again… can’t get enough of the cutesy tissue! Stickers too! *thud* I am so easily amused/entertained it’s pathetic. Sad to say I tried not to rip the sticker, but I wasn’t successful. ok ok, enough of the paper talk. Here is what was inside all of the cuteness.






A PopPhysique butt toning DVD. I’m considering taking this to work! It’s a combo of Pilates, Yoga, and Micropulsing. I’M SCARED! lol Next is a box of 4 Govino unbreakable (we’ll see about that.) wine glasses. PERFECT because if I survive the DVD I’m going to need a glass of wine!  Value: $13.99

Tucked between the DVD and glasses is a bag of Bear Naked Granola (listed as an extra). I think you’re supposed to eat it before working out because it says it gives you energy. Value: $0 .45

Next to the Granola  is a bundle of coasters with a coupon (another extra) for the Benziger Family Winery. I forgot to look at the value before I put it back in the box.

The postcard is from Postagram Prints. It’s Instagram postcards! We get to try out 10 free prints. WOOHOO! (yet another extra) Value: $10.00

Under the postcard in more tissue is ANOTHER extra, Pretzel Crisps. I love these things! I eat them with Laughing Cow cheese like there is no tomorrow! Highly addictive and filling. Perfect low cal snack. You get 14 for 110 calories. I can’t eat 14 at once. *burp* Value $2.99 – 399

On top of the pretzels was the coveted Baggu bag. YAY!  This bag is tucked (as you can see) into a little pouch. Oh and it’s purple! My FAVORITE color.  Value: $9.00




This was wrapped in the package I was squeeing about earlier. Tatcha Blotting Papers. These Japanese papers absorb oil without stripping makeup. I’ve never tried blotting papers. I’m not sure I want to try these either. The handmade packaging is too darling to rip open. OH and according to the little booklet that tells you about your treats, “the delicate little blotting papers are flecked with bits of gold”. WOW Value: $12.99

Next we have two little bottles in a black netting bag from Sprout Skincare. One bottle is tea tree oil & rosewater extract cleanser. The other bottle is an exfoliant made with “Maine sea salt, oats & almonds”. I can’t wait to try them! I love tea tree oil! Value: $10 each


The last thing in my box was an Alora diffuser. The scent is Isola. The top note is Gardenia. Value: $60

So far without actually trying all of the products, I am super impressed with this box, I mean bag. 🙂 Total value is $113.98. It’s certainly worth the $35 I paid.


I have been having so much fun with all the subscription boxes I’ve been getting. It’s only been a month too! I’m so excited for what September is going to bring! I’m loving learning about new products and companies I’d never look twice at. Nothing will go to waste either. What I don’t like I can trade with other subscribers or give as gifts. If you’re even the slightest bit interested in PopSugar click here. I’ll be honest. If you end up signing up via my link I get points toward free bags. You can do the same.  ~D
