March 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux BoxThere are some moments that are just exquisite. The feeling of brand new socks. That first hot, salty McDonald’s french fry. A perfect place to park suddenly becoming yours. Coming home after a trying day to find a subscription box on your porch. I recently had all four experiences in one day which culminated in finding my March 2017 Your Bijoux Box calmly awaiting outside my door!                  sample, affiliate links

March Collection Your Bijoux BoxThe March Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (although this month there were three jewelry items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized everyone gets the same jewelry each month. A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

The March Collection was a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, with an emphasis on spring green good-luck jewelry that makes you feel like a million bucks. This month they had a delay due to some supplier issues, but I really appreciated the communication and continued updates regarding shipping.  I still got my box in time for celebrating the holiday with my beautiful new items!Your Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation Cuff

1.  Tessellation Cuff ($78) – this is a gorgeous art deco piece from the House of Harlow 1960. It’s a fascinating cuff – I keep looking at it and finding more details. If you have nice arms, this is a great way to draw attention to them. Depending on your arm, you can wear this on the upper arm or at the wrist. It is a bit adjustable. I have really skinny arms so I like this on my upper arm, but my daughter prefers it as a bracelet. It’s gorgeous, and well worth the price of the box alone.Sama Cuff

Some people received the Sama Cuff instead. It looks beautiful, but I think I like the Tessellation Cuff even more.

It lays nicely and doesn’t tangle up. I love pairing this with a plain white t-shirt and skinny jeans.  Your Bijoux Box Emerald EarringsYour Bijoux Box Emerald Earrings

3.  Emerald Earrings:  These match the Emerald Layered Necklace. They are surprisingly light and don’t pull on the earlobes. I am a huge art deco fan so this month’s collection of jewelry is just perfect. I love the vintage glamour.

Your Bijoux Box Life of Fashion Scarf

4.  Life of Fashion Scarf:  My daughter Marina is modeling the fashion items for this month. The Life of Fashion Scarf is an infinity scarf with a graduated cream and green print. I don’t have a lot of green in my wardrobe so this is definitely a welcome addition. The scarf is soft and so pretty…and it was perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. I wasn’t pinched once because I had my green!

The March Collection Your Bijoux Box was a fabulous celebration of spring and St. Patrick’s Day with pieces I can wear all year long. Have you signed up for Your Bijoux Box yet? It’s a great time to do it…just think of that exquisite moment when you find the box of sparkly surprises on your porch!  – Lisa

Starting to think Mother’s Day, showers, or graduations? Then you need Soufeel!

Soufeel

I am loving delicate necklaces that feature tiny stars for spring, so I hopped on over to one of my favorite online jewelry sites – SOUFEEL – to get myself a few.  While I was there I also fell for their monogrammed necklaces. So much beautiful jewelry!! All SOUFEEL charms are 925 sterling silver and the crystals are from Swarovski. Plus, SOUFEEL offers free shipping with orders over $49 and 365-day returns and exchanges. In addition to building my own collection, Mother’s Day and many graduations are coming up – and SOUFEEL is a terrific place to buy gifts. Oh, I’ve also got a 10% off coupon for you – SHS10

Every time I have ordered from SOUFEEL I’ve found the delivery to be super fast, and everything arrives in this pretty little box with a blue bow. They also include a gift bag and a black cleaning cloth.  samples

Soufeel Moon and Stars Necklace

The Moon and Stars Necklace ($79, on sale now for $29.95) is simply stunning. This is a double strand necklace with stars on the top strand and a moon charm on the bottom strand. The stars and the moon are covered in Swarovski crystals, so for the sale price this is incredible! It was very difficult to get a photo of me wearing the necklace because the crystals were so brilliant, so I used the stock photo from SOUFEEL to give you an idea of what it looks like on.

Soufeel All Stars Towards Moon Necklace in RoseSoufeel All Stars Towards Moon Necklace in RoseSoufeel All Stars Towards Moon Necklace in Rose

The All Stars Towards Moon in Rose ($50, on sale now for $100) is so so pretty I am absolutely in love!! It’s so delicate and feminine and I don’t have anything in rose so I am thrilled with this. The little stars are tiny delights and the moon has Swarovski crystals that look amazing.

Soufeel Engravable Three Disc NecklaceSoufeel Engravable Three Disc NecklaceSoufeel Engravable Three Disc Necklace

I bought myself a mommy necklace with the Engravable 3 Disc Necklace in Silver (regularly $58, on sale right now for $35). It also comes in Rose and 14K Gold. If you have three children it’s just perfect! The discs lay flat, although when wearing the necklace they look a little more separated. I have absolutely no mommy jewelry so this has quickly become my favorite. If you have a giftee who has three kids or three grandkids, I can’t think of a better present.

It’s time to add a bit of seasonal flair to your jewelry wardrobe! And let me tell you, if you’ve got a jewelry loving friend who needs a graduation or shower gift, SOUFEEL is a terrific option. Take a look at their website at www.soufeel.com, and plan some time to browse because you will be mesmerized with all the options! And don’t forget, for an extra 10% off just use the coupon code SHS10 .  – Lisa

Ringing in the new year with my January 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux Box January 2017I like surprises. Well, not HUGE surprises…like when the doctor told me I was having a girl but he turned to be a boy. That’s a bit much in the surprise category. But I love knowing that a box of baubles, Your Bijoux Box, is on the way to me every month and I love the surprise that comes with it…I never know what is going to be inside but I always know it’s going to be pretty and fun!                                                                         sample, affiliate links

There are two cute extras in this month’s box – an Anne Taintor Lip Balm and Purse Sized Emory Boards. Anne Taintor is an artist and she is known for pairing mid-century imagery with modern slogans. Both of these immediately went into my purse and have already saved me from a few lip and nail emergencies.

I seem to love every month of Your Bijoux Box more and more! I highly recommend this wonderful monthly surprise of sparkle.   – Lisa

Glimmering baubles in Your Bijoux Box December Collection!


Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionSometimes everything just works out. A week ago, I found out at the very last moment that my husband and I were invited to a black tie affair. I rarely go to anything black tie, but I had a dress ready thanks to a recent Stitch Fix order – this Maggy Sophia White Floral London Fit and Flare Dress:maggie-london-sophia-white-floral-fit-and-flare-dress
I winterized it with a darling Alice Blue black jacket, also from StitchFix. I just needed the right jewelry.  Lo and behold, my December Collection of the Your Bijoux Box arrived!! Everything inside was exactly what I needed to perfectly accessorize my party dress.                          sample, affiliate links

Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionThe December Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of four pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressy or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (although this month there were three jewelry items and a pretty scarf!). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized everyone gets the same jewelry each month. A monthly subscription is $36, and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

Here’s what is in December’s box of bling:

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection David & Young Scarf

David & Young Scarf ($30) – I love love love this scarf. The geometric pattern is beautiful, the colors go with everything from a winter coat to a slinky dress and it is super soft and cozy. Awesome.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Holiday Bracelet by Deepa GurnaniYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Holiday Bracelet by Deepa GurnaniYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Holiday Bracelet by Deepa Gurnani

Deepa Gurnani Beaded Bracelet ($50) – This is a very cool, retro, sort of steam punk/art deco piece that has lots of sparkle and tons of personality. It is handmade by artisans and imagined by former couture beading designer Deepa Gurnani.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette DropsYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette Drops

Juliette Drops ($26) – Wow these are stunning. These crystal drop earrings add fun and bling to a maxi dress and will be fantastic to pair with a silky sundress this summer. Total romance.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette CollarYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette Collar

Juliette Collar ($38) – My exact words when I pulled this shimmering beauty out of the box: shut the front door!! Freaking fabulous. It was just perfect for my black tie event, but it also looks incredible with a simple white t-shirt (like the Citizens of Humanity Premium Vintage Esmay T-Shirt), skinny jeans (like the Rag + Bone Frayed Skinny Jeans), and black Acne Studio Pistol booties. citizens-of-humanity-vintage-esmay-t-shirtrag-and-bone-frayed-skinny-jeans

Quite honestly, I would have been thrilled if Juliette Collar had been the only piece in the box!

Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionAdd it all up – these four beautiful pieces are worth $154, a fantastic value for a $36 box. You can buy each item separately at Your Bijoux Box if you want…or you can get a single box without the automatically renewing feature. I am loving Your Bijoux Box more and more every month and I hope you decide to get your sparkle delivered too!!  – Lisa

I’ve joined the #DecolletageEntourage with RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream and Lizzie Fortunato

RoC

Why pay extra attention to your decolletage? Because ladies that is the FIRST place that aging skin shows up — think about it. We take great care of our faces, but often forget our necks – that means no sunscreen, no treatment serums, no collagen support. That also means wrinkles and sagging. We need to take care of our necks, then wear fabulous jewelry to show them off!!

As a RoC Ambassador I get treated to some of their fabulous products, including their Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 ($28). In addition to this beautiful cream that is a total treat for my neck, they recently sent me a STUNNING Lizzie Fortunato necklace to show off my results.  #gotitfree

The RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 is fabulous in several ways. It really is everything you need from your chest on up to your forehead. I see immediate results in terms of dryness and skin tone, and after four weeks there is a definite improvement in sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. Ingredients include the famous RoC Hexinol Technology as well as tons of vitamin E, which specifically targets the 5 signs of aging:  discoloration, sagging, dryness, dull skin tone and wrinkles. Plus, it has an SPF of 30 so it protects against the harmful rays of the sun.

The cream itself is absolutely beautiful – thick and creamy, yet it absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft and satiny. The rich cream and the elegant formula makes the Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream a huge winner.

With a gorgeous chest and neck, you need some beautiful jewelry to highlight the wonderful results, right?? How about a statement necklace from Lizzie Fortunato?

RoC sent me this stunning Lizzie Fortunato gold-plated brass collar statement necklace. Check out the semi-precious black onyx carbochon inlay — fabulous!!  What I love about this necklace is the versatility. It goes just as well with a white linen button down shirt and jeans as it does with a sleek, elegant evening dress.

Do yourself two favors:  first, stop by the drugstore and pick up a RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream and slather it on every night for one month. Second, go to ShopBop or LizzieForunato.com, treat yourself to a beautiful necklace and become part of the #DecolletageEntourage. You are absolutely and totally worth it.  – Lisa

I’m getting ready for Mother’s Day with Helen Ficalora jewelry

Mother’s Day with Helen Ficalora

Mother’s Day may not be until May 10th this year but that’s closer than you think. As a daughter, mother, and grandmother I don’t want to be caught last minute shopping because that means I’m buying something just to buy. Thinking ahead is the key, especially if you want to order online.

Helen Ficolora packaging

Helen Ficalora is a jewelry site with products that you and your mom will love. I am fortunate because they sent the perfect necklace as an example of their products. The packaging is wonderful and set to give as a gift. The red box with the perfectly tied ribbon and the inner boxes are beautiful and sturdy. (My crooked jewelry box is a long ago Mother’s Day gift from my sons.) You know just from the packaging that there’s quality inside.

My necklace is a Sterling Silver Mom Disk Charm on a Sterling Silver 18″ Fine Chain. It fits nicely in the crook of my neck. Stamped disk charms are available in 14k yellow gold, white gold, pink gold or sterling silver. The prices range from $55 for the sterling silver MOM to $185 for white gold or pink gold. There are a lot of options too so that all budgets and taste can be accommodated. They carry chains in 4 different lengths and the same four metals so you can really personalize what you buy.

Spicing it up with Wantable 2015 April Accessories Collection

*April’s collection was sent for review, we include affiliate links for Wantable so we can build credits for future collections*

It’s still spring but summer is right around the corner, and my Wantable.com April Accessories Collection is definitely getting me in the mood for longer days and shorter nights.  My April Accessories Collection has three long necklaces and a pair of sunglasses.  I think I wear a long necklace every single day, so the variety in this box suits me.  This month’s collection features natural elements like semi-precious stones.

Marcia recently posted about her fantastic April Cosmetics Collection (read it HERE) and we both love the change in the order details.  Now, not only are the items pictured and described, there is also a retail value and a ‘your price’ value.  Very handy, because you can return a specific item and be credited that much toward your next collection.  Well played, Wantable!  It certainly works for me this month since three of my items are winners, but one is not for me.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Bess Necklace

1.  Bess Silver Necklace (retail value $14):  This is a beautiful long silver necklace with two different sized filigree discs.  They look like spider webs to me.  This is a pretty, feminine necklace that goes with so much, from a basic tee to a floaty sundress.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Alicia Sunglasses

2.  Alicia Sunglasses (retail value $14):  I have several pairs of sunglasses but nothing quite like these.  The Alicia Sunglasses are hip and fun, with a brushed painted frame and silver detailing.  The lenses are oversized and I know these will be perfect for a trip to the beach.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Bri Necklace S

3.  Bri Necklace S (retail value $19):  My second long necklace is very different, rather ethereal.  It has three rows of black beads along with a sort of blue, sort of purple crystal stone.  It has a cool bohemian vibe.  Love this with a simple black tee and jeans.

2015 Wantable April Accessories Marie Necklace

4.  Marie Necklace (retail value $26):  So this is the item that just doesn’t speak to me.  It has gorgeous details – a long double silver chain, silver etching, round ivory stone.  But the pendant is too complicated, too large, and rather clunky on me.   I can’t get it to lay right, which is in part because it hits me exactly mid-chest.  This is a great piece for someone with a broader frame and smaller bosom.

The overall value of April’s collection is $73, so Wantable continues to be of the best values available in the subscription box world.  This month I love three of the four items…and it’s still great, because I can send back the one I am not loving for a credit back on my next box.

If you’d like to start treating yourself to a nice surprise each month, here is a $5 Coupon to get you started.  Start spicing up your accessories wardrobe for warmer weather!  – Lisa
