POPSUGAR Must Have Box January 2014

This box came about 2 weeks ago and I never did sit down to talk about what I think of it. As with other boxes, there are hits and misses. More hits this round because I found the perfect recipient for one of the items in the box and there is a full-sized designer beauty product included (already worth more than the value of the box)!


It’s crazy to think that we’re already into 2014, but there’s nothing quite as exciting as a fresh start. To help you check off those thoughtful resolutions, you’ll find one-of-a-kind products like designer beauty accessories and tech gear that’ll change up your routine for the better. Want to eat healthier or take a life-changing trip? Your supply box is right here. Cheers to all the great things the New Year has in store!





My favourite item in this month’s box is the face mask, followed by the tech gloves (which I really wanted). Strangely, no info could be found online about Jack + Lucy. Oh yeah, the PIPCORN was really good and in a different way from which the popcorn from last month’s box was good. I’d definitely buy both again. The popcorn in PIPCORN was tiny and they weren’t kidding when they called it mini. The truffle oil lent it a really subtle savoury flavour that was so fragrant. Mmmm… T and I loved it.
My main gripe with this month’s box is the calendar. Personally don’t need one because I haven’t got a place to put it nor do I need to tell the days anymore (sigh…) Also, a calendar is January!? I think people would’ve appreciated it if it came in November or December. Then again, I did see that on their website, it’s now US$12 instead of US$16 – perhaps they were included in this month’s box because they needed to clear them. With that said, I do think the RIFLE PAPER CO things are cute (but I’m not into stationery).


I produced an indie music festival in Singapore for 7years before I moved to the US to be with my indie game dev husband Tom who made Axiom Verge and Axiom Verge 2. We live in Los Angeles, California with our son Alastair (named for Alastair Reynolds) and our dog Goliath (named for his size).
