POPSUGAR Must Have Box August 2017

PopSugar Box August

POPSUGAR gave me one of their Must Have boxes so I could tell you all about it.  This is their August box and it was incredible!

PopSugar Must Have Box August

It was full of things to make a girl happy.  Isn’t that what subscription boxes are all about after all?  With this box they were celebrating that they’ve been around for 5 years!  Yay!  I love POPSUGAR’s Must Have boxes and it’s hard to believe 5 years has gone by since they were first introduced!

Here is the rundown of what was in my box and scroll down below that to find out how much money I saved by getting them in the box as opposed to buying them individually.  Oh, and you can save $10 on your first Must Have box with my link and discount code below.

This box has a retail value of $150! That’s a great value for what you spend ($39.99 a month) on a POPSUGAR Must Have box!  They did a fabulous job with their 5-year anniversary box.  Everything feels special and I feel like celebrating myself…maybe I’ll celebrate the first day back to school!

Want a box for yourself?  You can find out all about the POPSUGAR Must Have Box here and when you use the discount code PARTY (expires 8/31/2017) you’ll save $10 off  your FIRST Must Have Box!

Jockey Skimmies® Review #SkimmiesPromo

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Jockey Skimmies® through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Jockey Skimmies®, all opinions are my own.

It was the Saturday before Easter and my kids were in bed and my husband was downstairs watching TV.  I quietly sneak out a package that I bought myself.  A package that I hoped would leave me looking like a million bucks for Easter morning.  Out of this box I pull what’s known as shape wear but is more accurately called as a torture device.  I spent a great deal of time pulling and tugging, pausing to catch my breath and reread the packaging to make sure I bought the correct size and then pulling and yanking some more.  I finally got it on and I liked how it made my post-baby belly look but I hated the unflattering bulges it created.  That night I vowed to never wear shape wear again and I found a new appreciation for my curves!  My Easter morning attire left me feeling a little self-conscious but I was thankful to be able to breathe deeply and sit comfortably so I made my peace with it.

Sitting in Skimmies

A few weeks later PopSugar and Jockey contacted me about reviewing their Jockey® Skimmies® slipshorts.  Slipshorts are a fabulous combination of soft and stretchy slip in the shape of shorts.  It’s very comfortable.  Think yoga-pants-on-a-Saturday comfy.  These comfy undergarments help smooth down unwanted bumps and bulges but they are not constricting like shapewear.  I repeat, these are NOT shapewear – they are something much better!

Jockey Skimmies

Let’s review, they are comfortable and they smooth your shape to give you a lovelier silhouette.

As if that isn’t enough, here’s a list of other things these tiny woven wonders can do:

  • – Make sliding out of a restaurant’s booth a breeze.  Your legs won’t stick this summer!
  • – Immodesty woes are gone!  Bend over, cross your legs, let the wind blow where it may because you, my friend, are covered.  Wear a skirt to the playground and go down the slide if you want.  Embrace the freedom!
  • – Eliminates irritation from thighs rubbing together.   Women of all shapes and sizes get this and it can be down right bothersome.  Now you can wear your summer dresses all day with confidence and comfort!
  • – Smoothes down panty lines for a more modest appearance OR you could wear them in place of your panties should you choose.
  • – Perfect for wearing (in the color nude) under white shorts!  I love white shorts in the summer but it’s difficult to find a pair that are thick enough to not reveal every detail of what’s beneath them.  These will provide an extra barrier of protection and a smoother silhouette to boot!
  • – They stay put all day without rolling down or up.  You won’t even remember you’re wearing them!

Before trying these I was happy with my lace waisted short skirt but now I don’t think I’ll ever wear it again.  I want a pair of Skimmies® in every color!  Why not have a smoother silhouette every time I wear a skirt or dress?  I’m not sacrificing comfort and I’m gaining an extra bit of modesty.

I’m a fan and I hope you’ll give them a try and love them as much as I do!
