Before I get into any links, I wanted to bring attention to the most important weekend link. If you have anything to give, please consider giving to the Red Cross to help people affected by the Louisiana Floods. This is the worst natural disaster in the US since Hurricane Sandy.

This month, POPSUGAR sent me a Must Have Box to try out some new products. I love getting the Must Have Box, it's always full of awesome product that is useful and fun. Here are my favorites for July.


1.  Pintrill, Pineapple Pin $12 -- Pins have really  been making a comeback and I'm so happy about it. I loved this little pineapple pin to add to my denim jacket for a fun touch. 
2. Sunny Life, Swan Drink Floatie $18 -- I loved this floating swan drink holder, can't wait to bring it on a bachelorette party next month!
3. Michael Stars, Porcelain Skinny Scarf $30 -- This skinny scarf from Michael Stars is perfect to tie on a bag or bandana-style around my neck. The black and white print is perfectly neutral. 
4. European Wax Center, Brow Highlighter $18 -- I had never tried any European Wax Center products until this arrived in my box, and it's amazing! It's a nice champagne color, so it is not too white, and blends really nicely. I also use it in the inner corners of my eyes and on my cheek bones. A+.
5. House of Pom, Emojii Cocktail Napkins $25 -- These napkins just make me happy. They are featured front and center on my bar cart right now. 

If you want to try out POPSUGAR's Must Have Box, use code 'SHOP5' for $5 off your first box!

I have a love/hate relationship with subscription boxes. I have tried several and they have been very hit or miss. POPSUGAR sent me a Must Have Box for review and I was game to review it, as I had heard it was an awesome subscription service and was interested in trying it out.

When the box arrived, it was like a mini christmas. It was so fun to find great products inside. It didn't feel underwhelming, or as though the box had a lot of filler items. 

What the box included:
 -- Hat Attack Neutral Diamonds-Printed Sarong
-- Sisters of Los Angeles "Cheers" Gold Bottle Opener
-- Wild and Wolf Ridley's Games Room "Who Am I?" Quiz
-- NCLA Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer
-- Knock Knock Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact
-- Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes
-- Pressels Sriracha

I like the Must Have Box better than other subscription box services I have tried because the items are full sized (not samples) and it's a variety of products. Plus, the value is amazing -- over $120 worth of products for $39.99. 

 My favorite items are the bottle opener, sarong, and party game. I think I am going to get a lot of use out of all three -- especially over the long holiday weekend! The deodorant wipes have also been great to keep in my gym bag.
