January popsugar must have box

I apologize... this post is a little late. I received my first POPSUGAR Must Have Box about a week ago, and I'm loving it!

You can click here if you want to see my initial post explaining what the POPSUGAR Must Have box. But basically, each month has a theme and the editors of POPSUGAR pick out some of their personal favorites within that theme. Subscribers then get a box FILLED with stuff all for $35 (and free shipping). It's really a great deal, and you'll see why after finding out what I received this month.

So, this month, their theme was related to Fitness and Indulgence.

Merrithew Stability Ball. Retail Price $36.99. I'll be honest, I actually haven't gotten this out of the box yet. My motivation to work out is really low right now. But, I do really enjoy crunches on a stability ball, and just ab workouts in general. Maybe when my motivation to exercise comes back, I'll do a post on some of my favorite ab exercises?

Popbar Hot Chocolate on a Stick. Retail Price $2.99/each. Boyfriend and I actually just enjoyed these Friday night. I received one Milk Chocolate and one Dark Chocolate. They were really good. It was just a richer hot chocolate than the boxes of powder mix you pick up from the store. I'm not sure if I would ever invest in these on my own, because I really don't drink a lot of hot chocolate. But it was a really good treat on a cold Friday night.

Think Thin Bars. Retail Price $1.69-$1.99/each. I received three of these, and this was actually the first product I tried. I broke into the Think Thin Crunch bar right after taking the above photograph. And then I ate the Creamy Peanut Butter Protein Bar a couple of days later for lunch. The Divine bar I actually gave away because it was Dark Chocolate Coconut and I really do not like coconut. But these were some of my favorite items in the box! I may actually buy these if I saw them somewhere.

Epicuren Discovery Lip Balm. Retail Price approx. $9. I am a sucker for lip balms because I hate having chapped lips. I really loved this one, although they make it in stick form and I would have preferred that. It has tea tree oil in it which makes your lips a little tingly. Its just a really light lip balm that makes your lips super soft. Your lips soak it up really quick though, so plan on reapplying about an hour later.

Remix Timebomb Watch. Retail Price $44.95. I was actually really excited to receive a watch! I have been wanting a new one... although I have been wanting a dressy watch. But this one is fun and I plan on wearing it in the summer. I received the watch in white (which I am glad because that is what I would have preferred). Its a large silicone band and the face has an LED light that makes the numbers flash a variety of colors.

As you can see, its pretty large for my wrist. What would be some good ways to dress it up in the summer? Should I just stack some beaded bracelets next to it?

Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits. Retail Price Approx. $5? I am not going to lie, I am really bummed that I forgot to put these with my hot chocolate sticks! Once again, probably won't use them a whole lot, and I haven't tried them yet.

Not Pictured: $15 Casetagram Gift Certificate. I would have LOVED to use this item. Casetagram uses your Instagram pictures to make a really neat case for some of your electronics, but mostly iPhones. Unfortunately, I do not own any of the items they make cases for and the $15 gift certificate doesn't cover the cost of a case anyways. But its a great idea!

Total Savings on Really Cool Stuff: $87.59

They also have a referral program, that I would be crazy not to tell you about. When 2 friends use my referral link to sign up, I will receive 1 month free. Then 5 Friends = 3 Months Free; 10 Friends = 6 Months Free.

Enter REFER5 into the coupon code box to receive $5 off your first box!
