Everything in the Winter 2018 box!
I love Reese Witherspoon! Popsugar gave us her new book Whiskey in a Teacup.
Academy Award–winning actress, producer, and entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon invites you into her world, where she infuses the southern style, parties, and traditions she loves with contemporary flair and charm.
Reese Witherspoon’s grandmother Dorothea always said that a combination of beauty and strength made southern women “whiskey in a teacup.” We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we’re strong and fiery.
Reese’s southern heritage informs her whole life, and she loves sharing the joys of southern living with practically everyone she meets. She takes the South wherever she goes with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken. It’s reflected in how she entertains, decorates her home, and makes holidays special for her kids—not to mention how she talks, dances, and does her hair (in these pages, you will learn Reese’s fail-proof, only slightly insane hot-roller technique). Reese loves sharing Dorothea’s most delicious recipes as well as her favorite southern traditions, from midnight barn parties to backyard bridal showers, magical Christmas mornings to rollicking honky-tonks.
It’s easy to bring a little bit of Reese’s world into your home, no matter where you live. After all, there’s a southern side to every place in the world, right?
The colorful illustrations at the back and the quote really sums up the fun and the lessons we can learn from this book.
This is an easy-to-do recipe for get-togethers.
It’s not just a cookbook, she also talks about the steps on how to get ready before the party.
The setups are stunning and the food looks really yummy.
She even has great suggestions for gifts.
Parties won’t be complete without a good playlist to keep it going. She gave us her best Southern suggestions.
The instructions are informative and easy to follow. It’s like learning how to cook from your best friend.
She even has a Southern pronunciation guide for the usual words!
Uncommon James Handmade Cotton Fringe Throw ($168) This fringe throw is made with handwoven cotton. It is handmade in Guatemala.
It’s a good accent if it goes with your house aesthetic. It can blend in nicely with our couch or coffee table.
There is a featured interview of Kristin Cavallari about her brand Uncommon James.
I love the simple details. It can really accentuate a house once utilized wisely.
It’s soft and the quality is great! The tassels don’t have loose ends.
Melinda Maria Designs Sabrina Pod Necklace ($98) This necklace can be my go-to winter accessory!
The jewelry is secured in a velvety gray drawstring pouch with the brand’s logo.
The necklace has a little card along with the soft drawstring pouch.
Its total length is 40 inches. You can loop it again if you want or layer it with other pieces or wear it as it is.
As you can see, each gold hammered pod is different. They are organic shapes linked together with an 18k gold-plated and lobster clasp closure.
Winky Lux Sugar Kitten Palette ($25) The palette looks stunning! It’s made exclusively for POPSUGAR Must Have.
It has a see-through box showcasing the glittery case of the palette.
I love the shade names. Is anyone in the mood for dessert?
The case is definitely trendy and youthful.
Cruelty-free and can be used one year after opening, these shades are versatile and are fun to use. The palette offers 9 luscious candy-colored eye shades in metallic, satin, matte, glitter and pressed glitter finishes.
It’s highly pigmented and the formula is easily blendable. You can pull off a simple look, subtle shimmer or smokey eyes with this palette.
Apotheke Tobacco Blossom Candle ($36) Another designer spotlight features the brand Apotheke and an interview with its founder, Chrissy Fichtl.
I never would’ve imagined a tobacco scent in a candle.
This is made exclusively for the collaboration with POPSUGAR so this is a special and an exclusive item.
The scent of sweet tobacco has traces of cognac, creamy vanilla with chestnut and ember notes. They enhance the relaxing mood and ambiance in every room and the candles burn for an average of 60 to 70 hours. Discontinue the use if the wax becomes less than 1/4 inches.
You have to take the necessary precautions to keep the high quality of the candle. You should light it on a flat surface for 3 hours the first time so the candle will be even. Do not let it burn more than 4 hours and trim 1/8 inches of the wick before every burn to prevent residue and black smoke. Allow the candle to solidify before lighting it up again.
Kate Spade New York Desktop Easel Calendar ($20) They included this calendar to remember Kate Spade and the sparkle she left everywhere she went.
It’s simple but classy with gold foil stamp on each paper.
It doesn’t take much space, so it’s a good desk companion to keep you up to date.
The frame can be reused after but you can worry about that after a year.
It also has some fun terms at the back with their meaning.
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks ($25) These gold eye masks help brighten, hydrate, and reduce the puffiness on the undereye area to give you a more youthful look.
It’s free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. The masks also contain hyaluronic acid that locks in moisture and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I love it that they sent us the whole box that contained 6 pairs of gold eye masks. You can share this with your girlfriends and have a pampering slumber party.
There’s a promotional card offering discounts with codes from the different brands featured!
Well, it’s not finished yet. They still have more surprises for us!
The magazine has information on the bonus products as well. They gave us some travel-friendly items.
There is some promotional article at the end about Popsugar’s collaboration.

There are tips about gifting and how to set up meals and even how to get ready for parties. I love the versatile palette and the pretty necklace as well! The rest, like the throw, candle, and calendar are great additions to our home. There are a lot of items here in the Winter box and lots of bonuses too. For $75, I got more than $350 worth of products excluding the worth of the bonus items. The selection in this box is satisfying too as it offers from skincare to home decor items.
