  1. Does anyone know when the April box is being shipped out? On my account page it says tracking processing. I hope I do not get this box on a Saturday because my husband will be home and I’ve been hiding all my boxes from him. Lol. Oh I hope it comes during the week.

  2. We need another spoiler! I want to buy the April box as a birthday gift, but can’t do it based on the book alone ? anyone?

    • Popsugar posted on their instagram a beautiful hand cream that will be in the box as well! Also the cookbook has amazing reviews and her personlaity and voice is throughout the content, so it should be a pretty good item! 🙂

  3. Has anyone gotten notice that their box has shipped yet? I can’t wait any longer!

    • I got charged today, so it should be shipping in a few days.

  4. So both March and April boxes have this book in them? That’s strange.

    • There was no book in the March box….

  5. So is March the first month for the Mini? Or April? Cuz I just signed up so I hope I didn’t miss it 🙂

    • The first month will be April for the mini! 🙂

      • Hi Liz! Love your site! A couple questions (I feel you’re likely to reply faster than PSMH cust. service would 😉

        1) I just went on the site and it says the next mini to ship is JULY?! Are they not offering the mini each month or did I just miss out by purchasing April only and not a “auto renewing sub”?

        2) Do you know for sure if March is sold out? I wanted to buy my sister the April box for her b-day so I purchased when it said “next box to ship is April” then they sent her a May box…which is fine, but I don’t want her to get a SECOND March box if I purchase another one month gift now.

        Thanks in advance 🙂

        • whoops I mean then they sent her a March box, not May…getting ahead of myself! 🙂

        • Thanks, Tessa! I’ll try my best to help!

          1) I’m guessing they had a limited amount of spaces open for the initial run of the mini box, so it sold out through several months quickly. It is shipping every month. If you signed up now, there may be a chance you get a June box if a spot opens up. (They will email you to let you know if your first month changes).

          2) Right now, their site says the first box you would receive for the original subscription box is April, but “You are automatically signed up to receive an earlier month’s box, should it become available.”

          Hope that helps!

    • The mini is sold out until July as of yesterday.

    • April

  6. Can anyone tell me when this box normally ships? I signed up for it a few weeks ago and was billed for the box, but can’t find any shipping information. I also signed up with Owl Craete a few days later and I’ve already received that box. Just trying to get a timeframe down! ? Thank you!!

    • I just looked, and it really varies. I have emails saying my box shipped Jan 19, Feb 2 and Mar 8. So, I’m guessing the end of this week or first of next. 🙂

  7. I wish they’d offer a discount if you subscribe to both boxes. They could even ship them together & save on shipping.

  8. Liz, do you know if the March box is sold out? Thanks!

    • Yes it is

  9. Has anyone on a month to month been billed for April as yet? Haven’t seen anything so I’m trying to figure out if it’s not going to be automatic, in which case I would need to purchase April myself…sigh.

    • I just checked again today, and my April box has not been processed yet either. I also signed up for the mini box, and that first box has already processed in my account. I thought they were going to be scheduling payments for the 24th of each month for the next month’s box…. I wish they would get it together and make it a set schedule. Hoping for a good box this month, because March sucked in my opinion. I do like the occasional book, and I love to cook, but the spoiler isn’t going to seal the deal for me this month. I’m also anxious to see if the mini box is really worth the $20+… They better be items that are legitimately worth more than $30.

      • As anyone been billed yet for April?? I thought it comes out April 1st?

    • I haven’t been billed yet!

  10. I’m sick and tired of receiving books in this box. This is my favorite box! But I hate receiving books and it seems to happen every third month or so. I have April and May prepaid and I may not renew. I have signed up for the mini box so we will see how that goes. I actually read regularly but only on my Kindle app so I wouldn’t mind a code for an e book download or something but I really get so annoyed with all the books.

    • I also mostly read on my Kindle, but have had success selling books I receive and won’t use on Amazon, just as an idea.

    • I love receiving books. They’re a unique item and perfect for a lifestyle box. The code for a kindle download is a wonderful idea, but subscribers who don’t have a kindle would feel cheated.

    • What a brilliant idea about the code! You can download a kindle app for your phone or computer for free. So, anyone could do it…And is better for the planet.

      • As a vegan cookbook collector, I do not want cookbooks on my kindle.. I want real books to use int he kitchen…. so I’d be fine with a code for anything but cookbooks.

        • I also prefer written cookbooks, even though I’m not vegan (kosher, though) because I sometimes make notes in mine, and I like to believe that at some point my kids might want my cookbooks, or even want to copy some of the recipes. . .

    • I wonder if you could contact customer service and skip this month. That would be a cool new feature for them to add.

  11. Comment

  12. I have more FOMO with PS than any other box. I want to pull the trigger, but the $5 coupon code isn’t working for me (perhaps it’s only for first-timers?) so I’m trying to let that be my hint.

    As for Chrissy Tiegen, she’s a bit annoying, but I follow her on Instagram just for the food porn. The pics of her meals always look so.damn.good. So, the cookbook will probably have some great recipes. Arrghh…what to do, what to do….

    • I’m pretty sure I’ll be swapping the cookbook so don’t decide based on just that! I do consistently love my PS box though (except for the jewelry lately).

  13. I’m so torn!
    It’s a guess whether the value will be as good as the main box, for which I only pay about $23 per month with the six month deal. But on the other hand, they may hit it out of the park as it’s the first mini box.
    Severe FOMO with this.

  14. I really hope its not another seed and pot item, I already received this from FabFitFun and Little Lace Box. The themes seem to be way off so who really knows until more spoilers are released.

  15. I hope there is something from Rifle paper. I don’t usually like floral prints or fragrances, but their items are usually really nice.

    • ooo! I love the Rifle Paper Co. idea! Fingers crossed! 🙂

    • Yes!! I feel exactly the same way! 🙂

    • The resort ps box just had two rifle notebooks in it, so maybe they got something for the April box, or maybe not because of it being in the resort box? The notebooks are adorable but travel themed not floral, I wouldn’t mind more.

  16. It looks like they’re going through a re-branding? Would be interesting to see where that goes.

    I must be the only person on this Earth who doesn’t care about Chrissy Teigen or even know why people fall all over her.

    • You’re not, I feel the same way about her.

    • Nope, I feel exactly the same. I thought I was the only one too!

    • I couldn’t care less about her. Just another model..

    • I think she is adorable and her persona seems really sweet anytime I’ve seen her. Are the meals low cal or anything? I’m not a cookbook gal, as I just google recipes or make it up myself. lol

  17. After last month’s theme, I can’t help but think that the floral, fresh, and natural have something to do with “personal” washes.

    Eh hem. Where has my mind gone? Lol

    • We so need a “like” button for comments.

    • I totally had the same thought! LOLZ!

        I wanted her cook book, too…
        But I am sick of their customer service/support.
        I like their boxes.. just don’t like the way they run their business. ..

        • I totally agree. I get damaged and missing items, and it’s like pulling teeth to get replacements or the actual item you should have gotten. Half the time they say it’s out of stock and will send it if it comes back in stock. How about a substitution or something? I am trying the mini box. If it’s a hit, I’ll dump the regular sub.

  18. I can’t figure out how the theme relates to the cookbook?? Maybe fresh? But I pray for nothing rose scented, I hate rose scents.

    • Me too! I hate anything and everything rose scented, and it gives me such a headache

  19. Omg I need a mini spoiler!! I already caved but it’s just too exciting LOL

  20. I find the themes completely useless in terms of figuring out what they’ll send. Hey, even after getting the stuff I’m not always sure how to match the theme with the items. Here is what I got for the last couple of months:

    feminine = watch & tampons
    vibrant = necklace (it was sort of a vibrant color)?
    illuminating = Pixi palette (it had a highlighter)
    refreshing = carafe & toothpaste
    daydreaming = cookies (the one item left?)

    Now, this is for February:

    hearts = the scarf with hearts + cookie mix
    indulgent = $50 face wash
    adoring = the tiny ring?
    confident = plate with “hello beautiful”
    sexy = Victoria Secret card

    • Your February match-up seems spot on. Although I hadn’t thought it through – I tend to forget about the ‘spoilers’ once the box arrives.
      They’re usually so far off it’s hardly worth trying. See March – that makes no sense.
      I tend to believe the team pick the spoiler words months ahead, then ditch them in the scramble to fill the box! lol

      • I think it’s the other way around. I think they pick the product items first, then release “spoiler” marketing words that sound more appealing (or less meh) than the actual products.

  21. I like actual flowers just fine, but I detest floral prints and fragrances. Then again, it seems like most of the time the ‘spoiler themes’ don’t really have a direct connection with what’s in the box (at least not that I see). Could be interesting.

  22. Floral, natural, fresh, renewal. None of those make me think of a cookbook.

    • I can see “natural” applying – home cooked meals are likely to not contain the artificial ingredients of frozen or chain restaurant ones.

  23. Ohhh, a bouquet g.c. or perfume?

  24. Omg Popsugar shut up and take my money – loving the theme for April! MINI is the same theme too, right? Still on the fence on MINI, wish they could post a spoiler!

    • Yes – same theme for both boxes! 🙂

      • Thanks Liz, I might just have to subscribe to MINI as well. Loving the theme!

      • Liz,
        Do you think it’s worth having both boxes? I’m so torn and tempted!!!

        • Hard to say for certain before we see what’s in the first box, but I had to sign up the moment it was announced! 🙂 We know for certain there will be no overlap in products…

          • Okay..done. Come mini, mini, mini.

          • What I like about it is that they said (I think on instagram) that it would “complement” the regular box. So I view it as $65/month for now 7-9 items, just spread out over two boxes 🙂

          • I like your thinking!! 🙂

          • Hmm, so if getting both boxes each month means $65/month for 7-9 products/month, then that means each product costs $7.22, $8.13, or $9.29 each, depending upon how many items total you get that month. Or another way to think about it… if based on PopSugar’s track record, if 3 of the items are busts for you that month, are you okay with wasting $27.87 that month to purchase those busts?

  25. sounds interesting…
