The POPSUGAR Must Have Box is the only subscription box that I've stayed subscribed to for over four months AND use almost every single thing I receive each month! Some of the things I use every day are from the Must Have Box including a towel wrap, a Revlon lip stain, a beautiful necklace, a sunhat, etc. This box never fails to impress me with the array of items that I receive. I got some health related items, beauty, household, etc. I absolutely love it and look forward to receiving my box every month. So this month I thought I would share with you the items in my June box!
The first item that I know I'm going to use all Summer long is the Gorjana & Griffin Zuma Scarf that is so long it could be used as a cover up over your swimsuit. This alone would have been worth the $35 I spend for this subscription every month. And on top of the we also received a $25 gift voucher for the Gorjana & Griffin website that I will be putting towards one of their darling purses.
On the health related side of things we received Madonna's Hard Candy Fitness DVD which is an intense, dance based workout revolving around using a chair. I watched a video that was an overview of this DVD and while I'm a little concerned for the fragile items in my living room, I'm curious to try this out. We also received a healthy popcorn snack from Popcorn Indiana which is an all natural gluten-free snack with zero trans fat and only about 40 calories per cup. I usually have organic popcorn as a go to snack (just had some actually) so this is something I will actually try.
On the beauty side of things we received two items from Juice Beauty, a brand I am already familiar with and love. We received what I believe is actually a full sized Stem Cell Repair Moisturizer that is meant to decrease wrinkles, improve elasticity and improve skin tone. I'm just about out of my Origins A Perfect World moisturizer and can't wait to try this one out! We also received two deluxe sized samples of the Juice Beauty Stem Cell Repair CC Cream in two shades (one for me and one for a friend!) and is basically a color correcting moisturizer with a lot of benefits - click the link to read them all. As I still haven't hopped on the CC cream band wagon I'm glad I'm able to try one out without investing a ton of money in it. I hate spending money to try out a new product and then find out it falls way way way too short of my expectations.
The last two items we received this month was a little package of mints from Project7 which is an amazing company that donates to different charities in America and abroad. These mints benefit a project to bring clean drinking water to communities around the world but they have so many awesome charities they donate to that involve providing housing and food to communities as well. The last item we received is a copy of Revenge Wears Prada which is the supposed sequel to The Devil Wears Prada. I've heard a lot of good and bad things about this book and as soon as I finish my current read, I will be giving this one a go. Can't wait!
If you haven't tried out the Must Have Box I highly recommend you at least give it a try. Having tried Glossybox, Birchbox and a few other smaller subscription boxes this one is hands down the best I've ever tried. Are there any subscription boxes you love?
Today my youngest sister and I are setting out on a mini road trip down the 101 to do some exploring, thrifting and adventure hunting! Follow me on instagram to see what we're up to! We plan on checking out some glass blowing, beaver ponds, Cannon beach with the giant rock pillars, a music festival and a sandcastle building competition. By the time you're reading this we are well on our way and I have to say - the short week feels absolutely well deserved.
What an awesome idea for decorating an apartment or rental property.
If you have small children in your life, then this video is hilarious.
If I lived in or around the NY area I would be all over this.
The promise of lost and hidden cities always excited me and make me want to become an explorer or archeologist or something.
I could see myself live here.
You've probably seen this emotional dog all over the internet, but I can't get over it!
This video during the Oklahoma tragedy still brings me to tears.
What a unique idea to substitute paying for coffee...
And lastly, True Blood comes back soon and I stumbled upon this adorable celebrity couple that makes me so jealous but also happy and feeling like could there really ever be a cuter couple probably not but damn I love him but also fuck she's so awesome so shit balls there goes that fantasy.
Do any of you have awesome plans for the weekend? Also, don't forget to enter the multi-winner giveaway I posted about earlier this week. Happy Friday!
Labels: Friday Finds
Multi Horse Print Tank - $15 / Cuffed Floral Shorts - $30.69 / Fringe Sandals - $30.53
Turquoise and Gold Bracelet - $20 / Gradient Lens Pink Wayfarers - $5.80
Finesse Ahead of Schedule Tote - $64.99 / Nasty Gal Daisy Crown - $68
I know, I know. We are well into festival season but I won't be attending my first festival of the year until July and then a few more in August so this wishlist is right on schedule for me. I know that a lot of these pieces don't match but I feel like that's the beauty of music and arts festivals, the less you match the more you look like you belong there. I absolute love the Multi-Colored Horse Print Tank that is only $15. I will definitely be picking this one up, how can I not, it's so cheap! I might also have to stop into Forever21 and see if I can find a pair of those Pink Wayfarers...
I'm going to the coast this weekend and since I've really been having to hold myself back from buying new Summer clothes (because I'm getting laid off - boo!) I don't have a whole lot to wear in the hot weather. I might have to go on a bit of a spree this weekend but we'll see. I'm really in the market for a fantastic flower crown but I'm not especially keen on spending more then $50 on one, if any of you know of a place let me know!

Sonia Kashuk Flat Top Kabuki No. 4 - $15.79
I thought I was certain that after discovering the Real Techniques brushes that I would never love another brush so much but I was very wrong. I have wanted to try out this particular brush ever since I very first stumbled across Sonia Kashuk in a Target store over a year or so ago. Probably longer than that. I recently starting using my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation on a nearly daily basis and I started to notice that my Real Techniques Buffing and Expert Face Brush just weren't doing the job. The Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is an extremely unforgiving product, once it has had time to dry and set on your face there is no budging or adjusting of any kind and I was having real issues with getting a clean, even and flawless look with my Real Techniques brushes.
I had somehow gotten a coupon for a few dollars of any Sonia Kashuk purchase so I thought, what the hell, I've been wanting to try this FOREVER (I literally feel the sample brush every time I'm in a Target) so why not give in. I am so. happy. i. did. This brush is extremely dense and sturdy, more so than Real Techniques, and I'm able to use this brush to buff foundation onto my skin and then use it almost like how you would a flat foundation brush to get a full, even coverage. This brush doesn't shed at all and even though I'm not a huge fan of the faint sparkles on the handle and the fact that the brush can't stand up on it's own - I am definitely glad I made the purchase. And because of this initial purchase I will definitely be trying out more brushes from Sonia Kashuk.
Have any of you tried any of the Sonia Kashuk brushes? If so, leave suggestions!
