Unfortunately, I did not get my box in time for halloween!

Karamel Krunch Candy Bar $2.50

This candy bar is only available around halloween time, so it is currently unavailable to purchase now but they promise it will be back for halloween 2016! I love love love the milk chocolate but I’m not really sure why its called a ‘crunch’ bar because its not at all crunchy. Its more of a chewy bar. I taste undertones of caramel but I like the candy bar but I think the name is misleading.

Le Bon Garcon Spiced Cider Caramels $5

I love how soft the caramels are but i’m not at all a fan of the taste. I don’t know why but I get a fishy after taste, I’m not at all a fan of these caramels.

image7

Torie & Howard Chewie Fruites $5

I’m confused as to why they would add this candy into the box this month, it seems a bit irrelevant to the rest of the box. These are like healthy, really soft, starburst. To sum it up, I’d rather have starburst. I tried the pomegranate chew and I strongly disliked it but my boyfriend and our friend really enjoyed them!

Colts Chocolates Milk Chocolate Bolt $3

This was super delicious and tasted just like a gourmet reeses. I just wasn’t fond of the whole almonds on the inside it would have been better if they were chopped up it was a little weird to bite into this and have a huge almond in it.

image6

Cocoa Dolce Dark Chocolate Caramel Pecan Bar $3.25

I was so excited to see chocolate in this box! This bar is like the perfect fall chocolate bar. It taste like a thanksgiving dessert. Like a pecan caramel pie  all in one little bar. I’m OBSESSED. I hope to see more of this brand of chocolate in future boxes.

image5

I payed $20 and received $18.75 worth of candy. It really bothers me how treatise pretends that the prices of the candy is actually more. It really bothers me and I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to continue to subscribe to Treatsie.

Finally!

Why Not Me? By Mindy Kaling $25

I’m not really into autobiographies but this has 4.5 stars on Amazon. Plus Mindy Kaling is super funny and I’m sure the book would be a great read, especially because its listed as a comedy essay book. The book has a bunch of cute pictures of mindy too! But I don’t think I will be keeping this. You can find this on eBay for much less.

Richer Poorer Hope Slipper Sock $15

I absolutely love these socks! They are super cute and really soft. I own a bunch of soft fluffy socks but these are by far the softest. I love the pink and the white stripes. It has a sporty to feel to them, I think its a symbol for kicking breast cancers butt! You can find these on eBay.

image7

Honest Sea Salt + Sugar Body Scrub $17

I’m very picky with my scrubs and I think I would have liked this one if it weren’t lavender. I can’t stand the smell of lavender but I wish I could. I know a lot of people are big fans of The Honest Company and how they are made with all natural ingredients. You can find this on eBay.

image5

Its a 10 Leave In Conditioner $9

This is a sample size. I’ve never used its a 10 products before but I’ve always heard amazing things about it. My sister has been using them for a quite a while now and even started using their conditioner. She’s been trying to get me to start using their products but their pricing for the size of their bottles really throw me off.  However it smells amazing and I’m really excited to get to use it. You can find this on eBay.

image4

Belgian Boys Stroopwafel $1.50

I have tried stroopwafel before and I’ve never been a big fan of it. I’ve tried it plain and i’ve tried it with tea. I believe I have received it once before in pop sugar, and love with food. They kind of taste like cardboard to me and always had a stale taste.

image6

Savvy Sleepers White Satin Pillowcase $36

I have two sets of satin sheets, cream and mocha. White does not really go with my sheets/comforter. Honestly I have not noticed any difference from sleeping on satin pillowcases then cotton. But maybe I’ve been sleeping on them for so long that its just not noticeable anymore. What I like about this pillowcase is that it has a secret pocket on the inside where you can stash love letters, hair ties, or jewelry.  You can find this on eBay.

Easy, Tiger.Brown Paper Liquor Bag Set $8

This is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Popsugar recommends bringing wine in one of these bags for a housewarming gift or halloween party. Maybe its just me but when I saw this I was like WTF. Why would they send us this. But I guess if you want this you can definitely find it on eBay.

image8

Gift Card To Danielle Stevens Jewelry $40

This is actually my favorite item in the box. I already ordered a personalized bow for my sister as a stocking stuffer gift! I’m doing her school colors; purple and white. They have a bunch of great things on their website that would be perfect for gifting! I already bought a second gift card on eBay!

image10

I payed $40 and received $111.50 without the $40 gift card. I think popsugar has really been slacking lately, with their products and with their customer service and shipping timing. This box was just so random, it did not have a theme or any kind of halloween/ fall feeling to it which really bothered me. I was charged the 2nd or 3rd or October and didn’t get it until the 22nd. Also when I contacted customer service about this problem they were so unhelpful. What did you think of this months box? Click here to sign up to get your next box!

I’m so happy my october box has arrived!

Avenue Sweets Caramels $.50 These caramels have so much flavor and are absolutely delicious. I don’t mind that treatise sends caramels every month, I would just like different flavors. I feel like they only supply apple cinnamon caramels every month. I would love more variety. But as always I do recommend these caramels!

image 6

Whimsical Candy $2.25. This picture makes it look so big, but its really less than half the size of my hand. But Its definitely so delicious. I just devoured the candy and I’m craving a whole box of them! I’m so upset that I’ve only received one in this box!

image 5

Wondermade Apple Cinnamon Marshmallows $8 Just the smell alone from these marshmallows are amazing. They are so soft and fluffy, like little clouds of cinnamon. Just the price is ridiculous. But look at all these flavors! I want them all!

image 2

PAPABUBBLE Halloween Hard candy Mix $4.50 & Fruit Hard Candy Mix $4.50 I love these halloween candies. They say “trick or treat”, “boo”, and jack o lanterns. I just ran out of my fruit mix that I got back in, I think it was the August box. I’m so happy to have more!

image 3

So I payed $20 and received $19.75, which isn’t the best, but I love this subscription box. I thought there was going to be more of a halloween theme this month. I’m so excited for next months box already! I want them to send out a box that is all chocolate again! That was amazing! Sign up now to get the next box!

YAY!!!!!

Butter London Wink Eye Pencil $18 This is the first item I pulled out of the box and I actually really like this brand so I was excited to see this in the box! Its more of a crayon than a pencil eyeliner which is also another plus for me! I’m used to wearing black eyeliner so I’ll try the gray and see if it works for me. If you missed out get it on ebay.

image

K. Hall Designs Shoreline $10 I have enough soap from subscription boxes to last me for life. But for some reason I still enjoy getting them! Even though the packaging is so simple, I still really like it. Maybe because I live on the harbor and colors and the name is just so nautical. The fragrance is just so fresh and clean! Get yours from eBay.

image 5

Happy Socks $12 I’m obsessed with these socks. I’ve always bought these socks for my boyfriend but I don’t know why I never bought them for myself. I love love love the print they are just PERFECT for fall. I’m so excited to wear them. If you missed out you can find them on eBay.

image 4

Dean & Deluca Pumpkin Spice Maltballs $5.50 I’m obsessed with everything pumpkin right now. So this was a great thing to include, because I’m pretty sure everyone else is in the same boat with me about pumpkin flavored everything! I never heard of this company before but that night I went to my friends apartment in the city and he had a Dean and Deluca shopping bag. Apparently they are a chain and have a few store locations scattered over the world.

image 3

Nailed Kit Halloween Decals $8 I love these so much. I already have my nail polish with the decals picked out for next week. This was just such a great addition.  They also have a monthly club! They send you two decal sets for just $10 plus free shipping! I think I might sign up! You can also find this on eBay for less!

image 2

Mine Design Chalkboard Candle $24 How freaking awesome. I think I get way too over excited about this candle, but I just love it. First, its a candle, it also has a chalk board, something about it is perfect for halloween, and the fragrance is beautiful. By the way, I wrote ‘Happy Halloween’ on the candle. You can find them for way less on eBay!

image 8

Isaac Jacobs International Acrylic Frame $36 I was just saying how I wanted a frame for this super cute picture of me and my sister when we were younger! This one is really cool because its magnetic and you can put two pictures on both sides, instead of seeing the back of the first picture.

The Blue Jean Bar – Blue Jean Box $40 Gift Code! I love trying out new subscription boxes and I love when pop sugar gives us discounts! this is so cool, its a lot like stitch fix, but I’m just hoping for better names and quality this time, I’m kind of a brand whore. I tried signing up for the box but for some reason my code is coming up invalid or expired! I’m so upset! I emailed blue jean bar and hopefully they will get back to me quickly! Did anyone else have this problem?

Overall I really LOVED this box. I was pretty concerned that I wasn’t going to like it as much as the september box, but it was great! So, I payed $40 and got back $153.50 including the blue jean box code! Even though it is much lower in price back than last month I still really enjoyed this box! What did you think of this months box? Do you like this month better than last month? Or vice versa? Click here to sign up for popsugar and get their next box!
