The items are secured by bubble wraps and white squiggles. There was quite a bit of room in this box – maybe something gigantic in future months?!

There’s also a special note from Lisa Sugar, the Founder and President of POPSUGAR Must Have Box.

Here are the goodies this month from POPSUGAR Must Have.

Popsugar Must Have Box April 2016 (15)

Cravings: Recipes For All the Food You Want to Eat by Chrissy Teigen ($14.99) I usually don’t like books inside my non-book subscription boxes, but this was a surprising exception. I absolutely LOVE this cookbook!

Sigh, if only I could look like that while still being able to eat fried chicken!

I was sold with the first recipe I flipped to! My fave!

Frito Pie Bar? Yes, please. Doing this for my next house party.

Yeah it does look that good!Popsugar Must Have Box April 2016 (20)

This one didn’t even show the food but I didn’t care because I loved her expressions (and also, I’m totally making that).

This book totally was all about the food I actually want to eat! And she had stuff that I never dreamed up but indeed.. want to eat. Win.

Canvas Home Tinware Salt & Pepper Shakers ($12) These have a faux vintage look and are cute – I think shabby chic is having a bit of a moment this year.

Unfortunately I think the identical wear marks makes the distressing look fakey.

Hopefully I won’t notice too much when they are on the counter!

Next by Nature Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans ($4) This is a great brand and I really like their other goodies! I don’t even like the smell of coffee so these made a perfect birthday present for my coffee-fiend husband.

Bloom That $20 Coupon: This card is good for $20 off flowers, which is nice, but with $25 shipping, that’s a bit steep. The cards are not stackable.

Noon Design Shop Lemons Flour Sack Tea Towel ($18) 100% cotton with a great vintage style. This really fits in with that shabby chic theme, but also works in a modern-ish kitchen like mine.

Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm with Echinacea Greenenvy ($48) This brand also appeared in the April Popsugar Must Have Mini Box!

Field Poppy Conservatories Hand Creme by Royal Apothic ($24)

This is fun packaging and I like how it tells more of the story behind the brand along with the product. And that lid!

The balm contains Echinacea Greenenvy which is an Echinacea varietal with high levels of the active ingredient in the plant – an anti-inflammatory antioxidant.  The scent of the night balm is amazing – and the product is completely different than what I expected. One thing I learned this month is that Farmacy balms aren’t hard/oily, they’re soft, and I love it. This is very moisturizing and soothing without being greasy and really hydrated my skin. I’m a new Farmacy fan!

The handcreme came with a a tube roller, which was fantastic (you can also use the point to break the metal seal on the lotion). The floral fragrance it pretty strong so I think I’ll keep the key and pass the cream onto a flower fan.

The ingredients! No parabens.

This was a really unusual box from Popsugar – it really took a turn that was very different than previous boxes. One thing I’ve noticed this year is that the boxes seem more themed. I felt that this box was something that Little Lace Box would curate and send, and it took me by surprise. I actually didn’t think I’d like this box based on the spoilers but I was super pleasantly surprised – I really enjoyed it, even if a couple of the items weren’t to my personal taste.

The box also had a $121 value, which was fantastic, and the box was too.

    I actually received this box after a little snafu of my account appearing to reactivate itself somehow… But before I called, I saw what was in the box and loved it so much that I decided to keep it! I loved this month’s curation!
