P.S. – You’re Invited by Erika Domesek – Value $26

I’ve always liked how Erika makes DIY projects look so simple on her blog, so I had fun flipping through this book.

Some projects were definitely inspiring like this mirror.

And other projects like putting dot labels on the side of a table weren’t really for me.

This isn’t a book I probably would have bought myself, but I’m enjoying it!

Barr – Co. Original Scent Reed Diffuser – Value $45

The last time I was at Anthropologie, I bought the Barr-Co. candle in the same scent, so I was thrilled to see this in the box. I love the scent!

Sharkies Organic Energy Sport Chews – Value $2

That’s It. Bar – Value $1.50

Normally I don’t get too excited about the food items in POPSUGAR boxes, but both of these snacks are delicious and gluten-free and dairy-free! I love finding gummies that I can tell myself are “healthy.”

Kitsch Headbands – Value $12

Shoptiques $25 Gift Card

I will definitely use both of the items. These headbands are great for working out, and I like the color combination too. I was expecting Shoptiques to be really expensive, but there are a lot of items I can get for under or close to $25 so I’m very happy with this gift card too!

Rifle Paper Co. Coaster Set – Value $16

Verdict: I paid $35 for this box and received more than $125 worth of items from POPSUGAR – I’m very happy with the September POPSUGAR Must Have box! What did you think of this box this month? And what are planning to use your Shoptiques gift card on?

  1. I love Popsugar, it is my monthly gift to myself. Last month was a favorite I loved the bento boxes and use all the time. This month was good. I love the diffuser, smells amazing. The coasters are not my style, but will make it into a gift box for a friend. Treats were yummy, headbands rock. The book though, was silly and not worth the $26 price, nothing worth making in it, which is sad because she is better than that book. The gift card is a great bonus. Cannot wait till next month

  2. I love this month’s box too! I think the coasters are adorable – I am going to give them to my friend/ boss for boss’s day!! She is an anthro and paper source lover!

  3. Great box! I’ve been on the brink of canceling, however, the last two boxes have been home runs. I really enjoyed this box. No, it’s not stuff I would have on my shopping list, but then again, that’s what this box is all about. Discovering new things. Love this box – I’ll keep my subscription going. Enjoy!

  4. After seeing a few reviews, I think I will give it a try. Too bad October is already full. Can’t wait till November!

  5. I was dying to find out about this box. It’ll be mu first monthly POPSUGAR box. I can’t wait til it arrives!

  6. Love everything – it reminds me if Anthropologie had curated the box!


  7. I am so excited to get this month’s box! I absolutely love Barr-Co. I’ve been using their products for several years (original scent is so nice). I was super excited when they got it at Anthro in different scents. I have the diffuser already and love it, so I can’t wait to get another for a different room.

    I love Barr-Co’s packaging. The big glass bottles, the boxes, etc. I love it all. You can find lots of different Barr-Co at their maker’s website K. Hall Designs. It’s worth the look! 🙂 Great review!

  8. I LOVED this month’s box!

  9. I felt the same way about the book and with the same projects too! I loved last month’s box in comparison, but I will definitely use everything so it’s still a win!
