PopSugar Must Have Box May 2013 Spoilers!

Rumors are flying around fast about the May box from PopSugar. According to their Twitter,

“May’s POPSUGAR Must Have box contains everything you need to kick off your Summer with a party! Our expert editors curated a box to keep you laughing with friends, looking picture perfect, and ready to hit the beach as the temperatures heat up.”

With that in mind, what do you think will be in this month’s box? I am thinking something along the lines of a DVD or game, a makeup item and a nice cushy beach towel plus some other beach-themed goodies.

Let’s also not forget that 10 subscribers will also be getting a Clare Vivier clutch added to their box!

There was a lot of negative reaction toward April’s box, which I loved except for the garment bag, so I think they are working hard to make sure May is much better. By the sounds of it, they may be successful at finally creating another box to really “Wow” everyone!

Update: I finally got my box – come see what I got here!

New subscription! Bride Box set to launch May 1st!

The Bride Box is a curated monthly subscription for brides-to-be. Each box promises unique full-sized products and samples every bride needs for her dream wedding.

You can get a 1, 6 or 12 month subscription. It is $35 a month plus shipping, but you can get $5 off your first order by using this link. The price is more than fair since each box is supposed to be valued at around $100.

As a newly engaged bride, I am incredibly excited to hear about this box. I am surprised I haven’t heard of any boxes like this before. What I like the most about this subscription is that each box is curated to each bride’s personal tastes which means I will not have to worry about getting anything that would feel completely out of place in my wedding plans.

Will you be subscribing to the Bride Box? What do you think they will include? I look forward to getting my first box!

Bug Out Box – Monthly Box for Preppers

Here is a little known fact about me: I am zombie-obsessed. Literally obsessed. I am even a  part of a Zombie Preparedness Initiative. So anything that can help me prepare for Z-Day has my immediate attention.

Bug Out Box is a monthly subscription that offers your between 5 and 8 products and samples that can help you survive any emergency situation. The cost is $19.99 plus $7.95 in shipping and handling. The company promises to deliver essentials that you would absolutely need in an emergency survival situation. I don’t normally like subscriptions that charge you an additional shipping fee, but I get it. I am more interested in subscriptions with fun things I can use now, but I can’t help but find this concept intriguing.

I first heard about Bug Out Box a mere 24 hours ago from Jodi, the owner of Freetail Therapy via her Facebook page.When I heard about her experiences with them, however, my interest dropped to nil.

According to her Bug Out Box review, she received 9 products, most of them valuing around 50¢. In total, the value of her box reached $19.06, not including a bonus item that is valued around $5. Naturally, she went to the company and voiced her disappointment in the box.

In most cases, a company will apologize and do what they can to make things right. Not in her case.

“So far Bug Out Box has not returned my emails, they have deleted my [Facebook] posts on their page, taunted me by liking one of my posts that said they deleted me post, then deleted that post, and now they have banned me from the page, even though I haven’t posted anything else.”

I don’t know about you, but when I am a paying customer, I expect some sort of customer service. Not this type of childish treatment.

Have you tried Bug Out Box before? What were your experiences like?

PopSugar Must Have Box May 2013 Giveaway – Clare Vivier clutch

Who else is excited to hear about the Clare Vivier clutch giveaway PopSugar just announced for their May 2013 Must Have box? I know I am! To be honest, my only exposure to Clare Vivier is through some research I had to do when I was an intern for a fashion PR agency in London back at university and again when she had a sale on Sneakpeeq a few months ago.

Her clutches run anywhere between $85 and $200 and 10 lucky people will find one in her box next month along with the regular goodies curated for the May box. This means the value of your box could be around $300! How exciting is that? I for one need a new clutch for Spring and would love to get anything from her. All her clutches are roomy and have a fresh, bold look perfect for the season.

If you want a chance to snag a Clare Vivier clutch, subscribe to the PopSugar Must Have box as soon as possible and use code REFER5 for $5 off your first box.
