Pop Sugar Must Have Box (April)

I received my Pop Sugar Must Have Box for April earlier this week. I really enjoyed this month's box. There was only one product I didn't like.

Here are the items I received in my Pop Sugar Must Have Box for April 2014:

BlueAvocado (Eco) Shopper
Retails for $25
^I love that the pattern on this bag is so pretty and I love th colors together. I love that it's a nice size bag and the ability to have it be collapsible and zip up into a wallet-sized pouch is fantastic and convenient.^

Too Faced Natural Eyes
Retails for $36
^This is the only product I didn't like and it's because I don't wear makeup, except for mascara and lip gloss. I gave this to my mom because I know she will use it.^

Graphic Image Pocket Notes
Retails for $20
^I'm constantly writing down lists and things to remember/etc. so I always love new notebooks and journals. This is such a fun little notebook with silver edges, acid-free paper, and a flexible cover which makes it very easy to use. I love the saying too!^

NatureBox PopSugar Must Have Mix
Retails for $5
^This is a custom designed snack mix especially for PopSugar Must Have. I haven't tried this mix yet but I'm hoping I will like it. I will be honest though, I'd rather have been given something else food-wise for this box. I'm hoping I will like it. The ingredients are: almonds, soybeans, corn, and cranberries and while I like all of those things, I'm not sure if I would choose to mix them together. I'm planning to try it sometime this weekend.^

Caldrea Rosewater Driftwood Hand Soap
Retails for $10.50
^I was so excited to find this big bottle of soap in my box this month. I'm a sucker for nice smelling body products like soaps, body lotions/creams, body sprays, etc. This has a very nice scent that isn't overpowering and I'm excited to use it.^

Fresh Pastry Stand Totally Awesome Tea Towel Set
Retails for $18
^I was so happy to receive these two very awesome tea towels. I love the colors and the font & style of the text on the towels.
You fold them so that they look like this when there hanging:

Monday Morning Gossip

Monday Morning Gossip for 4/7/14

Saturday: I spent the day just relaxing around the house. My mom and I got salads for lunch at Chick Fil A. I was planning on going grocery shopping but I was just too lazy to go. I worked the closing shift at my weekend job.

Sunday: I worked the opening shift and then I came home and just spent the rest of the day relaxing. I watched an episode of Glee, helped my mom make dinner, and then my mom and I watched two episodes of Parenthood. I taped the ACM awards so my mom and I can watch that this week and skip through any performances we don't want to see. I ordered the complete series of 7th Heaven off Amazon. 7th Heaven is one of my all time favorite shows. (Other shows that are off the air but are some of my all time favorite shows are: Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Beverly Hills 90210, & Third Watch)
