POPSUGAR Must Have February 2012

Referral Credit Box Referral Links
I know I teased you guys earlier with my POPSUGAR Must Have February Spoiler post but a few hours later it showed up at my doorstep! It was just meant to be I think since I had just got my official shipping email an hour or two before it arrived. This month was a very nice box I'm pleased with the items and will get use out of each of them.
It's getting a bit late in the day here so I'm going to run down these items and price points as quickly as I can, if I miss anything please let me know in the comments!

Brokedown | Spa Wrap in White MSRP $84.00
This wrap is super soft and much better quality than I expected it to be. It has a velcro closure that it pretty adjustable I tried it on quickly and found I needed it to be a little bit tighter making it overlap a little bit more.

I took some measurements of the wrap so for anyone who is concerned with fit please reference these numbers and keep in mind it was about 8 am when I measured this so they might be off by a hair.

Left to Right *un-stretched* 43.5 inches
Left to Right  *stretched* 50.5 inches
Length 22 inches
Velcro length 9 and 7/16th's of an inch each
For reference I am 5'5 and it comes to about the middle of my fingers when my arms are relaxed at my sides. I'm a 34A up top and I have to overlap the Velcro a bit to get it to fit securely.
Hanky Panky | Original Thong in Mulberry OSFA MSRP $20
I have not tried this on and I must say I never thought I would be showing you guys my underwear on the blog! It's feels like it's very nice quality and it will be a nice edition to my underwear drawer... I feel like I've said too much...

MarieBelle New York | Tresor Box in Dark Chocolate Pearls MSRP $12.00
Now dark chocolate isn't my favorite but these little guys are so cute! I haven't had a chance to try them yet but when I do I'll let you guys know how they taste.

Revlon | Just Bitten Lip Stain in Honey MSRP $7.49
I've been wanting to try one of these for awhile and this is not a color I would have picked but I think that's even more reason to give it a try.
Safe Haven | Paperback MSRP $7.99
I've been seeing lot of comercials for this book and I'm not a Nicholas Sparks fan persay but I'll give this a read anyway!

Bonus | Soundtrack download
The bookmark has a code on the back to download the song "The Journey" from the movie soundtrack. I don't think I've heard that song unless it's that one by Paramore... maybe?

Connoisseurs | Quick Jewelry Cleanser MSRP $5.00
I don't actually own any jewlery cleaner so this is very pratical and I think it was a great time to send it what with Valentines Day just around the corner.

Special Extra
Conversation Hearts | MSRP $1.49
Nice touch with this POPSUGAR I love me some Conversation Hearts!

Coupons this month included a free gift with purchase at Hanky Panky and 15% off along with 30% off at Brokedown.

Based on MSRP values this box comes to $137.97 I'm very pleased with this months box! The only thing I would like to see them improve upon is products that are one size fits all. If they are going to send products like this they should take into consideration that they are actually more of a one size fits most and make it an option to get the plus size version of the product if one is available. If the hanky pankys were not a thong I could almost guarantee my big ass would not fit in them! Excuse my language but it's the truth those product do not take into consideration shape and for me that's where all my shape is.


POPSUGAR Must Have is $35 a month, you can use code REFERFRIENDS to get $5 off your first order.

**This box was paid for with referals

  2. Just seeing it all now makes me so excited! Would you say the wrap would fit a bigger size?

    1. I think it would because the velcro give you a lot of leeway with it however it might be a bit short, it's a little shorter than I would like for a wrap.

  3. Very cool breakdown, it seems like you got a nice box of goodies. The spa wrap seems worth it alone. :)

    1. That's what I was thinking too even thought its a bit of an odd item but I think it will be great for the spring.

  4. Hmm, that's too bad that they do a one size fits all. I feel like that $35 is pretty high price (even though the basket was worth $184).

    1. I agree it is one of the pricier subs out there and some months are hit or miss. I just keep an eye out for coupons to help offset the cost.

  5. I don't think I'd be into the book much either but the rest of this stuff looks pretty darn great! Jewelry cleaner and underwear, as weird as it may be looks really useful.

    1. I know right that's exactly what I thought too!

  6. Oh no!! I'm so bummed (pun intended) to hear that the wrap is short. I'm 6'0'' tall and now my bum is probably going to hang out of it. I hope not...

  7. Well my review for January is going up tonight since I was out of town. January was a bomb for me personally and February doesn't look like I'm going to be overly thrilled. I may need to start thinking about giving up this expensive box. I'm always afraid that the minute I do though that an amazing box will come out and i'll be mad at myself.

    1. I totally know where your coming from, that is why Birchbox and I haven't broken up yet. I'm too afraid I'll miss out on something good. I can feel the breakup with Birchbox coming though. I mean in the end it's just stuff and if it's not stuff you'll use it's not worth it.

    2. Marcia, I see some of the comments on popsugar about the boxes & how people are not satisfied with their monthly presents. Maybe people think $35 is supposed to bring them much more exciting things? I was super excited about the spa wrap, considering it sooo soft & worth 87 bucks! I'd keep going with it just for the surprise factor.

  8. Very cool box! I <3 Hanky Panky panties

  9. I'd enjoy reading the Safe Haven book ;) most likely going to see the movie this weekend sometime... also curious about the Revlon Lip Stain!

  10. Wow Ashley looks like you scored my dear! Cute purple panties, I guess it's innocent showing your panties on the blog, it isn't like you are actually wearing them.

  11. I LOVE Popsugar MustHave! I got a royal blue panty, though the purple would be my fave color. I go "cacao nibs" & they are yum & yes the box is cute. I have recently started a web site & it's not a "blog" exactly, but maybe I should show off my boxes too!

  12. The February MustHave box was the first MustHave box that I didn't like! The wrap is sized for someone Small-Medium, I don't wear thongs, not a fan of Nicholas Sparks, don't have gold or diamond jewelry to use the jewelry cleaner...the little chocolates are the only thing that I could use!

  13. Well the panties are cute --- even if they are one size fits all!!!

    Glad you liked your box :)

  14. I am really impressed with this subscription service! I have yet to see a box that I didn't like. I am getting really tempted to start getting Popsugar :)

  15. Just downloaded Safe Haven myself, cant wait to get into it on my upcoming trip! Let me know what you think, Id love to discus it once we're both done!

    1. I just finished it last week or so I thought it was pretty good but the ending was a bit odd. Kinda weird of a N. Sparks book Imo. What do you think?

      Delete
  16. Wow, this box seems great! I would really love to try the Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain, and I so need a great jewelry cleaner, so I hope that the Connoisseurs works great. Let me know?
