October 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box

Halloween is right around the corner and I couldn't wait to see what PopSugar had in store this month. I remember loving the October box last year so I just couldn't wait to get my hands on this years box. Recently PopSugar updated their website and as a result there where some shipping issues this month. I received my box much later then I normally do.
Inspiration Card

Here are the contents of this month's box:
Must Have Fashion
Must Have Home
2) Isaac Jacobs International Acrylic Magnetic Frame
3) Mine Design Chalkboard Candle
Must Have Beauty
4) Nailed Kit Halloween Decals
Must Have Food
     $ 5.50
Special Extra


* This month's box let me down somewhat. The box lacked a typical high value item and did not compare value wise to September's box. On a positive note, I can see myself using all the items provided since they were so basic.

Wantable October 2014 Accessories Box

Wantable is a monthly subscription service which offers 3 different customizable boxes: beauty, intimates, or accessories. You can get a one time box for $40 or a monthly subscription for $36. Each month you will receive a box with 4-5 full size items based on your personal preferences. If you decide that you don't like the items that Wantable's stylists pulled for you, you can send the entire box back for a full refund. It's a Win, Win! This month I decided to do a one time order for the accessories box.
"Our October Accessories are not for the faint of heart and you'll be spellbound by what we have in store for you this month. Banish boring in place of unique pieces you wont find anywhere else. Bold shapes are making a statement this season, so we have plenty of pieces to help you wear this seasons trend flawlessly. If bold color gets your heart racing, our jewel tone pieces will inspire you to create some beautiful looks. Our featured expert and jewelry designer, Emily Maynard is thrilled to be showcasing some pieces from her very own jewelry collection this month. Emilys' pieces are created with mixed metals, hammered hardware, natural stones, and playful contrasts that will bring personality to any occasion. Another featured brand is Headbands of Hope, who combine a love of fashion with the love of giving back. For ever headband purchased, one is given to a girl with cancer and $1.00 is donated to fund life-saving childhood cancer research. We're honored and thrilled to have their headbands in our collection. We have these amazing brands and all the trends you're craving for fall." 
My selected preferences
 Item #1: "The Kelsey Necklace" Retail Value: $41.00
A beautiful statement piece featuring teardrop shaped stones in a beautiful shade of dove grey. Small rhinestones add a hint of sparkle

Item #2: "The Jessica Necklace" Retail Value: $14.00
A long silver multi-chain necklace, connect with silver oval details with an adjustable clasp.

Item #3: "The Sydney Ring" Retail Value: $18.00
A great rock piece in dark silver featuring two rows of a knotted design.

Item #4: "The Suki Ring" Retail Value: $12.00
A great glam piece, complete with rhinestones and knot detailing.

* Compared to my first Wantable box, this box was a big hit. I learned my lesson and was much pickier with my choice selections this time around. I received $85 worth of accessories and one of them was an awesome statement necklace. Not to mention that the rings are both sized and fit perfectly.
