There are a lot of subscription boxes in the world for every age and interest, (just ask Buzzfeed) but, being the naturally cheap and distrustful person that you know and love, I tend to be weary of them. I’m sure you ask yourself the same questions I do. Are they worth my money? What are they sending? Will I like any of it? Will a sample have more than a shower’s worth of product? Is a masked murderer going to gain access to my mailing address?
Just me? Moving on.
Given my simultaneous interest in and distrust of the subscription box game, I got a little excited when Pop Sugar sent me their January Must Have box to try.
“But, Kaitlin!” you say, “I thought you weren’t going to do the blogger thing anymore?” “Correction!” I respond. “I’m not doing the blogger things that I don’t like anymore.” Who doesn’t like free stuff though? Any person with even the slightest internet presence who tells you they don’t enjoy the occasional swag is straight up lying to you.
But I ain’t no liar, ma’am. I am going to tell you the truth because, you know, I don’t really care if I’m never sent anything free again. You are my people, damn it! I will only tell you the truth. For example, I didn’t even bother trying the Goldfaden MD Fresh A Peel Multi Acid Resurfacing Peel because anything with the word “peel” as it relates to my face terrifies me, and I dislike the Daily Concepts Hair Towel Wrap because it’s a weird shape and somehow doesn’t hold all of my hair and not enough of it at the same time.

I mean that literally, as I can’t actually remember Robby or what his deal is 99% of the time. I actually looked back at those notes I took on premier night, and I wrote nothing about him. Not even notes about a guy who sounds like him but whose name I didn’t catch. Clearly, he made quite the impression.
So, are you watching tonight’s finale? How about the new Bachelor in Paradise? It’s going to be So. Good.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, sweet Leo. Everyone likes you, but how could they not? You appear sincere, a little nerdy, and prepared to break into song whenever the feared awkward silence appears. Everyone likes you, but The One just can’t love someone without a little damage (or at least someone who is going to provide a little damage). You totally ask for permission to kiss, don’t you? Never underestimate the power of a bad boy complex. Your Bachelorette Doppelganger: James Taylor
