POPSUGAR Must Have Review - March 2014 Box

My March POPSUGAR Must Have box arrived today. I have really been looking forward to this box since learning it would contain a Brokedown scarf. The POPSUGAR Must Have box costs $39.95 a month. If you are willing to pay for full year in advance you can save $50. So far each box value has been much higher than the purchase price.

Each month the box includes a fold out card that details the contents of the box. This month it also included suggested retail value for each item in the box. POPSUGAR founder and editor in chief, Lisa Sugar, also writes a letter sharing the inspiration for that month's box.

The first item I checked out was the Brokedown Blue Ikat Scarf, because I was already expecting to see this item. It was just as gorgeous as I imagined, and it was extremely long and soft. I cannot wait to work this into my wardrobe. The scarf has a retail value of $72.

The box included a Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum (0.5 oz) valued at $27. This brand is new to me, but I look forward to trying it. There was also a promo code for 15% off your first order.

I have been obsessed with Bauble Bar lately, so I was tickled to see this cute Bauble Bar Elephant Ring Tree. It is valued at $12. I will most likely use the 20% code included for Bauble Bar to buy a few rings to put on it. Or maybe the adorable enamel bracelets sitting in my shopping cart...

This Dogeared Lucky Horseshoe Make A Wish Necklace is possibly my favorite item in the box. The only part that disappoints me is that as a wish necklace it is eventually supposed to break. I would never want to lose this adorable charm. The necklace is valued at $31. There is also a 20% off code for Dogeared in the box.

I do not own a mini fitness ball, so I was thrilled to see this Activeforever Fusion Exercise Ball in the box. It has a $10 value and will satisfy this month's need to buy fitness gear that I may or may not ever use.

Sadly, these Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps did not make it through the night. The suggested retail value was $2. These were so tasty that I have actually already added them to my list on Vitacost.

The special extra item this month was a Nature's Bakery All Natural Strawberry Fig Bar. It has a $1.50 value, and it will be my breakfast in the morning.

I am very pleased with this month of POPSUGAR Must Have. The overall value was about $154. I will use several of the coupon codes included, so in the long run it will be worth more to me. After this I cannot wait to see what the Limited Edition Resort Box and April Box have to offer.

What did you think of March's POPSUGAR Must Have box?
