Lots of great goodies this month!

Lots of great goodies this month!

I loved my Wantable Intimates Collection for May, so I didn’t think the Accessories Collection could possibly be as good. Sometimes it’s great to be wrong! My May Accessories has four items including a scarf, a headband, a ring, and a necklace. I am very happy with the mix for sure. Speaking of mix, this is definitely a month for mixing it up in unexpected ways – mix and match, boho and glam, hard and soft, natural and glamorous, metals and colors.

Alexis Scarf

Alexis Scarf

1.  Alexis Scarf (retail value $22):  Infinity scarves are fabulous because they work so many ways, and I don’t have to worry about loose ends. The Alexis Scarf is very pretty with an ombre/print mix in beige, brown, and yellow. I like wearing this as a shoulder wrap.

Haumea Headband

2.  Haumea Headband (retail value $17):  Isn’t this gorgeous? And it is as comfortable as it is pretty. This Violet Love headband is made of a very soft, stretchy material – almost like comfy sweatpants – so I can’t even tell it’s on, but it still does an awesome job of keeping my heavy hair off my face.

Harlee Ring

Harlee Ring

3.  Harlee Ring (retail value $17):  I almost missed this ring in the package and I am so glad I didn’t! I love the big crystal stone, and the ring is adjustable so it fits any finger. It’s a unique, funky ring that will get all kinds of play time from me.

Logan Necklace

Logan Necklace

4.  Logan Necklace (retail value $24):  Oh my. This necklace is truly stunning. The detail is fantastic, and the bottom strands don’t tangle. I desperately needed a gold necklace and the Logan Necklace is absolutely perfect. I love all the pieces, but I do think this one is the real stunner of the group.

The total retail value of my Wantable May Accessories Collection is $80 and there isn’t one item I want to send back. I think May is a great month to start subscribing if you haven’t done so yet.  – Lisa

Wantable 2015 May Intimates Collection

Summer is almost here and my Wantable May Intimates Collection brought me 3 great pieces to refresh my wardrobe for the season. I got some happy socks, cozy lounging pants, and a sexy PJ maxi. It’s a great start to the summer for sure.

1.  Ozone UPC Stripe Socks (retail value $15):  These funky cute socks (inspired by bar code stripes, of all things!) are just plain happy. They give me a smile when I put them on, and another one when I take them off. I think two smiles makes for a great pair of socks. In between I don’t notice them, which is exactly what I want!!

2.  Rene Rofe Double Fun PJ Pants (retail value $28):  I absolutely have more fun when I am super comfy, so these cheerful polka-dot pants get a big thumbs up from me. They are soft like an old t-shirt and the detailing with the drawstring waist and contrast stitching is terrific.

3.  Pajama Drama Slit Maxi (retail value $32):  This is GORGEOUS.

Here is a pic of it in a different fabric color:

Pajama Drama Slit Maxi

Usually I prefer PJ pants or shorter dresses – more like an oversize t-shirt – because I can’t stand having anything bunched around my legs when I am sleeping. But the two side slits not only make this sexy, it also makes it great for tossing and turning without tangling. These are great PJs that also work for daytime. And who doesn’t dream of spending the whole day in pajamas?? (Gosh I hope it’s not just me….)

Total retail value of my collection?  $75. A great value with three very fun additions to my wardrobe. If you haven’t subscribed yet, do it now so you can get your summer fun on too!  – Lisa

April’s Pixie’s Parlour from Color Me Monthly is a pop of spring

Color Me Monthly Pixie's Parlour

Color Me Monthly Pixie’s Parlour

Color Me Monthly has delighted me once again by sending me the April polish, Pixie’s Parlour. I love Color Me Monthly polishes and think they have a fabulous subscription program. For $7 a month you’ll get one of the best and longest wearing polishes for your collection. Whenever I open a CMM box I’m excited to see what’s inside.

Color Me Monthly Pixie's Parlour

Color Me Monthly Pixie’s Parlour

Pixie’s Parlour is their newest addition and it’s a beautiful purple with tiny multi-colored shimmer. It’s a polish that makes me smile just like the beautiful blooms that are just starting to pop up in the garden.

Color Me Monthly Pixie's Parlour

Color Me Monthly Pixie’s Parlour

The name Pixie’s Parlour has a little story behind it. The color reminded the owner of something whimsical and she kept thinking of fairy dust. That didn’t feel like the right name so she dug into the history of fairies and found something called Pixie’s Parlour which is a cave that all pixies were banished to outside of East Devon, England. Voila she had the name and we have a polish that I’m happy to be banished into.

Like all Color Me Monthly polishes, this wore like a dream. I get a full week out of their polishes without a problem. I say that every time I get the opportunity to write about them because it’s true. My nail tech is always happy too when I walk in with CMM because she knows there will be no application problems and no staining.

Bold and sassy: Wantable April Intimates Collection

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

2015 Wantable April Intimates Collection

The older I get, the more I look forward to lounging. I think that’s why the Wantable.com Intimates Collection is always such a huge hit for me. Whether it’s comfy, sassy, or sexy, each month brings great reasons to take a load off and relax.

The April Intimates Collection is total comfort and sass. My collection has four items, including cozy socks, a sweet pajama tank, and a comfy, funky pajama set.

2015 Wantable April Intimates Pajama Drama Tank

1.  Pajama Drama Tank with Lace Trim (retail value $21):  Oh is this comfortable!! This tank has a double scoop neck with pretty lace trim. It’s so soft, and has an A-line design so it’s loose and flowy. I don’t just save this for nighttime, I wear it during the day too.

2015 Wantable April Intimates Happy Socks

2.  Happy Socks in Grey Disco Dot (retail value $12):  Fun fun fun! How cute are these??? I get happy just looking at these socks. They are exactly the length I like, which is because the preference choices at Wantable even include the option of sock length. I am in love.

2015 Wantable April Intimates Pajama Drama Pom Pom Tank and Pants

3 and 4.  Pajama Drama Pom Pom Tank and Pant in Watercolor (retail value $36):  Ahhhh…the cuteness is almost overwhelming! This pajama set has a tank top and long pants, both trimmed with little purple pom poms. The print is an amalgamation of maps with hints of teal, pink, and purple, and the trim is purple and teal. It’s as comfortable as it is cute.  Perfection!

The overall value of this collection is $69, although it’s worth even more to me because I adore every single item. If you haven’t yet, check out the Intimates Collection at Wantable.com. It is absolutely worth it.  – Lisa

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

Some cosmetic fun with Wantable this month

my Wantable April 2015 Cosmetics subscription

my Wantable April 2015 Cosmetics subscription

My April Wantable Cosmetic Subscription box is so much fun this month. It’s got color products galore. It was like getting an Easter basket for a makeup fanatic, the only thing missing was chocolate. April’s box was sent for review, we include affiliate links for Wantable so we can build credits to get the boxes.

Wantable has changed the way they are doing business and it’s for the better. The first box you buy will cost you $40 but if you subscribe for future boxes it drops to $36. They also tell you the Wantable value of each item by dividing the products up to equal $40. This way you can return items you don’t want and get a credit back on your next box.

For April I received a blush, eyeshadow, lipstick and a blush brush. Almost a whole face! The total value is $81 which is double the price of the subscription so it’s definitely a value. One item for sure is being returned though so that will add to next month’s credit.

The product that dazzled me is MIRABELLA PINK BLOSSOM EYESHADOW. This is from their Wild Flower collection and it’s stunning. Not only does it have the prettiest design I’ve seen but the color is stunning. This collection has Prismatech shades that are shimmering beauties. They cost $28 each which is a lot but boy is this gorgeous. This is my favorite product for April and probably for the last few boxes too.

If this was a horse race then we’d have to have a photo finish to see if FRANKIE ROSE PINK LADIES blush ($17) came in first since this is a winner too. I’ve reviewed a Frankie Rose palette with neutral blush before so I knew that the quality was amazing. I feel so lucky to have this very cool pink blush now to add to the other lovelies. This looks scarily bright in my pictures, almost neon, but it applies so much softer and it’s easy to buff down with a brush or puff to soften it more. The finish is satiny and gorgeous.

For lips there’s a lipstick by DOUCCE. This is a new brand to me and the packaging makes it a stand out. It’s sleek, contemporary, and snaps shut so it will stay safe in your cosmetic bag. I have it in #909 TANGELO ($20). I didn’t swatch it because I’m debating whether or not to keep it. The color is beautiful so I’m very tempted. The lipstick is a Mineral Matt with SPF 10 and vitamin E. But it’s so fragranced that I’m worried I’ll wear it once and not again. I keep smelling it though because I want to own it. What to do?? I wish I didn’t have such a sensitive nose!

The last item is the one I’m returning and I’m sorry that I am. It’s a SORME BLUSH BRUSH ($16) which I was excited to see in the package but the brush is scratchy and my cheeks are too sensitive to use it. I love tools in my Wantable subscription boxes but this one just doesn’t have the quality. Instead I’ll return it for a $7.90 credit towards my future boxes.

With two absolute winners, one maybe and one return, I still made out perfectly and I’m still excited about the box. The thrill of opening a WANTABLE COSMETIC SUBSCRIPTION BOX each month hasn’t worn away even after all the years I’ve been a subscriber. You should get in on the thrill and hopefully you’ll use our affiliate link to do so.

Getting practical with the March Wantable Intimates Collection

*this post contains affiliate links*  Every month my Wantable Intimates Collection is so different from the month before…it is always a big surprise. Sometimes it’s all about sexy stuff, and sometimes it is far more on the practical side. This month’s collection is all about the practical stuff with cozy pajamas and some multi-tasking shapewear.

Wantable 2015 March Intimates PJ set1 and 2.  Spring Fling Pajama Set in Aruba Blue (retail value $32)  This comfy PJ set is from Real Underwear. The top is girly and pretty with great detail – the sleeves have a keyhole design with a bow. The v-shaped neckline is beautiful, with delicate lace trim and a bow.

Wantable 2015 March Intimates PJ top detail The matching capri-length pants are striped cotton with a string tie at the waist. The detailing at the bottom of the legs is gorgeous – just look at the lace trim. This is an extremely comfortable set that I love wearing and it’s perfect for spring temperatures.

3.  Know Me Shapewear The Shape Charmer (retail value $38) This is a multi-tasking black shapewear piece. You can use it three ways:  as a tube top, a waist cincher, or as a half slip. It does everything – slims, cinches, and smooths. I am not going to be using it as a tube top any time soon…I don’t think even shapewear can save that particular area for me! – but I can totally use the waist cinching and half slip.

Wantable 2015 March Intimates Body Slimmer

This month’s Wantable Intimates Collection isn’t going to generate much heat in the boudoir, but it is a wonderfully practical one with great items that are going to get tons of use. My collection has a retail value of $70, making it a completely justifiable monthly treat.  – Lisa
