With Spring a thing of the past, we are soaking up as much sun, waves, and much deserved downtime as we can. And what better way to have jumpstarted our fun-filled summer than opening our June Popsugar Must Have Box. This month, items were curated to help us kick off our flip flops and lounge in style from mermaid-inspired beauty picks to cute “Aloha” trucker hat, and more. Keep reading our review to find out all the amazing goodies we received in our Must Have Box this month. Happy Summer![large_title title=”Inside the Box”]

We have always been fans of the Popsugar Must Have Boxes, and get excited when we see the pink and white boxes on our doorsteps, but this month’s lounge in style theme was absolutely perfect. The range of products we received, along with usefulness of each product with each other and on their own is amazing.
One of our favorites (and there are many!) is the Aloha Collection pouch. Not only are we living for the turquoise palm tree motifs on the pouch, but we’ve been enjoying using it to store wet bathing suits during the gym and after a swim at the pool. No more wet beach bags or stuffing wet suits in awful plastic bags.
Now we’re not usually big trucker hat fans, but we completely fell in love with the Billabong “Aloha” hat the moment we spotted it in our box. And unlike most caps, this one has breathable side panels that keep us from getting overly hot. Plus there is plenty of room for us to wear a high ponytail if we want.
We don’t wear a ton of makeup in the summer because frankly the hot California heats just melt it right off. However, we do love using products that help boost our beauty routine during the summer. So we were excited to discover in our box the Captain Blankenship sea salt hair spray and the much needed cuticle oil from NCLA. Nothing like getting those fabulous beachy waves we love rocking throughout summer, and keeping our nails nice and hydrated.
There is nothing like a good summer read while on a lounger by the pool. So we were thrilled to get our hands on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Already we are on chapter three, and can’t get enough of the intrigue. Definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a can’t-put-it-down kind of book to enjoy over the summer.
And because we adore fun home decor items, we couldn’t get enough of the Meri Meri blue and white party straws. So much so, we immediately served ourselves a nice ice tea and popped one of these party straws to give our drink that extra touch.
Last, but certainly not least in our box were the buttery goodness of the Belgian Boys mini cookies shaped as fun little mustaches, and the Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino (an extra bonus treat). Let’s just say these two lasted no more than five minutes. And we don’t regret it one bit. Yum!
