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

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.

Lots of fun in the Wantable February Accessories Collection!

Looking outside my window right now, it is snowing and blowing and the temperature is below zero.  I can’t be alone in wanting warm spring weather and fun, bright colors to match a shining sun!  My February Accessories Collection that I was sent from Wantable for review brought me a fabulous teaser for warm weather with four pieces that are going to get lots of play.

Wantable February 2015 Accessories Collection

Wantable February 2015 Accessories Collection

Like last month, my collection includes a ring, a necklace, a pair of sunglasses, and a scarf.  I am thrilled with the variety of items, and they all go together with silver tones and fun-loving vibe.

Courtney Ring

Courtney Ring

The Courtney Ring (retail value $11) is a silver stretch ring that looks like an arrow.  This is a bigger, statement ring that looks especially good with a white t-shirt, jeans, black boots, and pastel nail polish.

Macy Sunglasses

Macy Sunglasses

The Macy Sunglasses (retail value $14) have extremely large frames and the most gorgeous silver detailing on the sides.  These are going to be fantastic for maximum protection at the beach!  This is a pair of sunglasses that Jackie-O would absolutely love.

Sheila Necklace

Sheila Necklace

I am totally digging the Sheila Necklace (retail value $16).  This is a double layer necklace with fun silver disc details.  It looks like it would be very heavy but it is feather light.  The Sheila Necklace is just beautiful and I am so glad I can specify my necklace length preferences as this is exactly the length I like.

Suri Scarf

Suri Scarf

My final item is the Suri Scarf (retail value $24).  This is a lightweight oblong scarf in fun, springy mint, cream, and grey.  Pictures don’t really do this justice.  The Suri Scarf is one that works with any outfit, from casual jeans to a sundress.

Wantable is always a great value at $36 a month.  My collection this month had a retail value of $65, and I will definitely wear every item.  I think the best part about Wantable is how very specific you can be regarding preferences, yet every collection is still a wonderful surprise.

Wantable January 2015 Accessories Collection

2015 Wantable January Accessories CollectionSomehow January always seems to be a lackluster month to me.  Maybe it’s because December was so twinkly and bright with all the decorations and bells and whistles.  After I take down the tree and put away all the holiday chotchkies, everything seems bare.  My January Wantable Accessories Collection brought me some stylish brightness that sparkles up even my plainest looks.

2015 Wantable Accessories Collection

2015 Wantable Accessories Collection

This month’s Wantable Accessories Collection is well worth a $36 subscription fee.  My collection has a scarf, a necklace, a ring, and a pair of sunglasses – great variety!

The Shannon Ring

The Shannon Ring

1.  Shannon Ring (retail value $9)  What a super cute ring.  I am partial to round stones, so this vintage-looking gold ring with a salmon stone is a real treat.

Kelli Sunglasses in silver

2.  Kelli Sunglasses (retail value $18)  You just can’t go wrong with aviator sunglasses – they look good on everyone.  My pair is silver, and they are fantastic for sunny winter walks.  These are super sturdy so it should be a while before I manage to break them!

Eileen Scarf in mustard

Eileen Scarf in mustard

3.  Eileen Scarf (retail value $24)  This is a tube design knitted scarf with fringe detail.  Mine is mustard, which is a wonderful winter color.  I am a huge scarf fiend, but this is my first tube scarf!  I love how easy it is – even if I throw it on it instantly looks artfully arranged.

Karina Necklace

Karina Necklace

4.  Karina Necklace (retail value $32)  I can’t begin to tell you how difficult it was to photograph this necklace.  It has three different length multi-tone chains.  The shortest chain has a golden ball, the middle length has a beautiful pearlized semi-precious drop stone, and the longest chain has taupe colored beads.  It is truly gorgeous and is great for dressing up simple tops.  Wantable recommends pairing this with a marsala colored sweater, so of course I am now on a mission to find one.

The retail value of this month’s collection is $83, and I love every item.  Wantable continues to be the best surprise I get every month…do something nice for yourself and get a subscription!  – Lisa

Wantable November 2014 Accessories Subscription Box

Winter is the perfect time to go bold with accessories, and this month’s Wantable Accessories Subscription Box came with four great pieces to perk up my collection.

2014 Wantable November Accessories Subscription Box

The Wantable Accessories Subscription Box is $36 a month, and I typically receive 4 or 5 different selections in each package they send me every month.  I changed up my preferences a bit to go even bolder; here’s what I selected for this month:

Wantable 2014 November Accessories preferences

Not much I don’t like!  I actually think I will bring scarves back into the mix for next month to round out that collection.  This time, I added to my earring collection with a statement pair and a classic pair.  I also received a gorgeous watch and a beautiful bold, long necklace.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Mariah Earrings 3

The Mariah Earrings ($17) are truly beautiful in person, I don’t think the pictures do them justice.  They are total glam with black and white stones, gold trim, and rhinestones.  Perfect with a simple black cashmere turtleneck sweater, jeans, and black leather boots.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Cece Earrings

On the other end of the spectrum are the Cece Earrings ($18).  I am astonished at how substantial these pretty hoops are!  This is a fantastic addition to my classic earrings collection.  They complete and add polish to any outfit.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Mabel Watch

I am beyond happy with the Mabel Watch ($28).  Isn’t it gorgeous??  The tan leather band perfectly complements the large classic face with gold and rhinestone accents.  And the pave rhinestone trim really makes this watch a stunner.  Love it.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Sloane Necklace

My fourth item is the Sloane Necklace ($32).  This is a unique, geometric long necklace that is wonderful on its own or paired with a simple scarf.  The metallic fringe and gold shield pendant hang from a gunmetal chain, and these mixed metals are right on trend.

Total overall value of my Wantable November Accessories Box is $95.  Pretty terrific for a $36 box, and since I love every item it’s definitely worth it.  At this time of year, another great idea is get a single box for $40 and then gift each piece – if you can part with anything!  Each item comes in a pretty black velvet bag.  Just pop it into a gift bag and the holiday shopping is done without even leaving your house.  Brilliant! – Lisa

Wantable October Accessories Subscription Box

2014 Wantable October Accessories 9
This month’s Wantable Accessories Subscription Box has some wonderfully bold selections!  Not only are there great pieces with mixed metals and natural stones, there’s also an item that I am proud to wear because it supports childhood cancer research.

Headbands of Hope Everest Headband

Headbands of Hope Everest Headband (retail value $14.85):  This is a very cool fabric stretchy headband that can be worn so many ways.  It works as a classic headband or as more of a headcover.  The best thing about it?  For every headband purchased, one is given to a girl with cancer and $1 is donated to childhood cancer research.

Ayla Earrings

Ayla Earring (retail value $17):  aren’t these awesome?  No one can really tell they are rock goddess skulls unless up close.  These are perfect with a classic, sedate outfit for a subtle rebel touch.

Nicolette Necklace

Nicolette Necklace

Nicolette Necklace (retail value $24):  This is a long double-chained statement necklace with distressed metal, amber stones, and a fringe of chains.  I wear this with a dark solid colored top and play up with the necklace shades in my makeup.

Cate & Chloe Savannah Bar Earrings

Cate & Chloe Savannah Bar Earrings

Savannah Bar Earrings

Savannah Bar Earrings

Cate & Chloe Savannah Bar Earrings (retail value $54):  Yes.  These earrings alone are worth almost $15 more than the price of the box.  I have long dark hair, so these silver bar earrings are exactly what I need.  They show up when my hair is down, and are so elegant with an updo.  Gorgeous.

All together, my box has a retail value of $109.85.  I swear, every month is better and better.  I can’t wait to see what next month brings!  – Lisa
