PopSugar Must Have Special Edition - Neiman Marcus

Recently PopSugar put up their Neiman Marcus special edition box. This box is the most expensive box they offer priced at $250!! The first year they offered this box which was 2013 they promised a value of at least $600. In 2014 and this year they didn't give a promised value but last year the value was just over $650. As always I debated on getting the box this year because it's so darn expensive. I went ahead and ordered it hoping I would get some gifts out of it.

All the special edition boxes come in a black box which I re-purposed to hold my stamping supplies. Each item in the box is wrapped in black tissue paper.

This tray was a spoiler and it's awesome!

Other treasures from the box and yes that is my dog sniffing everything. I think she smelled the chocolate.

This is the chocolate my dog was after. Also the agate clock.

The clock portion can be removed and made into a picture frame. 

Contents of the PopSugar Neiman Marcus box with retail price:

Vosges Haut-Chocolat Organic Peanut Butter BonBons Box. Value = $24.00

Eddie Borgo Small Chain Tassel Pendant Necklace 20" long in Rhodium plated brass. Value = $125.00

Rablabs Cele Clock. Value = $100.00

Super by RetroSuperFuture in Classic Black. Value = $159.00-$189.00

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer Set with A Fine Romance, Dark Side of the Moon and Stairway to Heaven. Value = $24.00

Kevyn Aucoin The Look Book. Value = $45.00

Mela Artisans Fantasy Decorative Tray in Grey made from natural bone. Value = $130.00

The total value of this special edition box is about $607.00. I think this is a great Neiman Marcus box. All of the items in the box are upscale what I could call indulgent. I am totally in love with the tray. It's much more elegant and beautiful than the picture shows. It's a very sturdy tray with felt feet. This is going to be perfect tray for parties or even setting some decorative candles on. I also love the clock and even better it matches my living room colors. I'm not sure where I'm going to put it because the clock is too small the read from a distance. I was actually thinking of taking the clock out and somehow attaching it to my bathroom mirror and using the frame. I'm a fan of Deborah Lippmann polish and these colors are very winterish. I also love the necklace. To me it looks like a silver jellyfish and I love jellies. I'm on the fence about the makeup palette. I like it but I would probably only use the eyeshadow which seems like a waste of a palette. I might trade this for something else. I'm not to into the sunglasses. I have polarized lenses on my current sunglasses and I can't go back to regular ones. I'm sure I'll be able to make a trade for these - maybe another tray! It would make a wonderful gift! 

Verdict: This box definitely had a great value and I am very happy with it.
