Anyone else addicted to subscription boxes or is it just me? 🙈 There’s something so exciting about mystery mail. I’m not sure why I get so giddy about the anticipation of new products, but I am a self-proclaimed subscription junkie! I had to detox recently because things were getting out of control…so I researched to find one box that would fit all of my needs and feed the subscription box vices. I recently subscribed to the Pop Sugar must-have box because I really liked the wide range of items and variety they include in each month’s box. A little fashion, beauty, kid, kitchen, food, home…you get the picture! Every box has a general theme, which I think is really neat…March’s box was all about Spring Fever! I wouldn’t necessarily have picked these on my own, so I love discovering new products and brands! Just to give you an idea of price, it was $200 for a 6 month subscription and I used a promo code. In the scheme of things, that’s really not bad considering each box is valued at over $100. I believe that after the discount, it was basically like I received a box for free. Also, this is not a sponsored post…just my honest review!
I’m loving the pop of color in the vinyl bag from Stephanie Johnson. This is definitely not something I would have purchased for myself, but I really like the idea of using it for poolside and beach activities to ensure the contents stay dry. It’s also very structured, so I know the contents will be protected! This might even be a petfect camera bag! Vinyl is in, y’all! It retails at $45.
You can check out more of her line here: Stephanie Johnson I also really like how her website is categorized by bag shape and color…it’s very easy to find exactly what you need! I’m really impressed with the quality and always like to get a little funky with accessories. This is a win in my book!
Another item we will definitely be using on-the-go is the eco friendly lunch box from Sunny Life! They have a TON of cute products on their website from beach and pool necessities, hosting and entertaining accessories, candles, and kid-gear. They have some of the cutest games and toys for kids I’ve ever seen. I’m for real when I say this may be my new favorite company. They have such fun gift ideas, too! They even have pool floats and cool stuff for a BBQ. You have to check out their website and tell me what you think…for some reason it feels very nostalgic for me. Takes me back to the whimsy, bright colored memorabilia from being a kid. I know you’ll love it as much as I do! This lunch box is dishwasher safe and comes with a silicone band to hold it together. There’s also a flamingo version and one with a pineapple on it! Too cute! They retail at $18…Check it out here:Sunny Life
My little threenager is already eyeing the Smashmallows (shocker!) I won’t have too much mom guilt considering they’re organic and made with no artificial ingredients. They come in a ton of flavors, although this Cinnamon Churro one is BOMB. Talk about YUM! I tried it because I just had to and y’all. Seriously the best little treat on planet Earth. They’re only 80 calories per serving, so that’s not too bad either! A few of the other flavors are mint chocolate chip, toasted coconut pineapple, strawberries and cream, and espresso bean. They retail at $4 a bag…don’t say I didn’t warn you! Find more here:Smashmallows
Of course I love the Kate Spade photo album because I’m forever taking pictures. Seriously, I’ve always got my camera on me. Kate Spade can do no wrong, so I was really excited to see this album in my box. The neutral canvas and black polka dot design is so chic and cute. It will blend in a flow perfectly in any room. This is also a fantastic gift idea! Mother’s Day is coming up! This photo album holds 80 pictures and retails at $20. Find more here: Kate Spade
I first heard of Thrive Causemetics (yes, you read that correctly) from an ipsy bag a while back and absolutely love this company. That stand for women empowerment and with every purchase, they donate to women in need. The Brilliant Eye Brightener is a perfect addition to my summer makeup routine. I always tend to go with a bronze and neutral palette for my eyes and this will add just a little pop to brighten the corners and lower lashline.

Before the Pop Sugar Box, I hadn’t heard of Velvet Eyewear. I was excited to get a $25 gift card though! I browsed their website and I’m really impressed with the variety of choices. They have three sections to their site: Trends, Optical, and Collection. The trends section features trendy glasses priced around $55, while the Collection page has more designer priced choices at around $170. I will definitely order a pair (because you can never have too many sunglasses, am I right?) and I’ll let you know my thoughts on my social media accounts! Shop their site here: Velvet Eyewear
Overall, I’m really impressed with this first box. I already received a “sneak peek” of next month’s box and I’m stoked! It contains a dipped bamboo cutting board from Morning Culture that can double as a serving platter. It is SO. CUTE. Can’t wait!

I’m also interested in doing the FabFitFun box so if you have any info or reviews on that one, let me know! Happy St Patrick’s day and have a great weekend! Stay styled, sugarplum!
