Your Bijoux Box June 2017

Finally, it’s officially summer!! June brings the longest day of the year to the US, as well as the June Your Bijoux Box, and this month did not disappoint. I was happy to find my box contained a statement necklace, a delicate necklace, a watch, and sunglasses that Jackie O herself would adore. Once again, Your Bijoux Box far surpasses the $36 price tag and is a fantastic way to give myself a little treat.  (Get $20 off in June, plus free luxe hair bands and 2x reward points with the code June20)!                                                 sample, affiliate links

Your Bijoux Box June 2017

The June Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three jewelry/accessory pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three items for women (this month there were three items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized, everyone gets the same jewelry each month, although June had two color options for one of the necklaces available. 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.

Wrap it with a Bow Necklace:  this is a glass pearl necklace with pave bows and it is a Your Bijoux Box exclusive. You can’t help but feel elegant with this double strand of gorgeousness, and it’s right on trend – pearls from head to toe are everywhere this season. I love this with a sundress, but try it with a boat neck white t-shirt, distressed boyfriend jeans, and flats!

Karen Kane Necklace:  This comes in red or blue in anticipation of those Independence Day picnics and barbecues. I got the red, and I love it…although in photos the blue looks gorgeous too  I think it’s a win-win situation here. Usually Karen Kane jewelry is more angular, but this is pretty and feminine and retro.  Its perfect with gingham or nautical themed shirts.

Evette Summer Watch:  I love this white on white watch. How gorgeous for soft summer outfits. It is the perfect foil for literally anything you wear – it goes with everything. This is a Your Bijoux Box exclusive and I think it’s worth the price of the box alone. It’s the first watch I’ve gotten from Your Bijoux Box so it was a surprise, and a rather happy one at that.

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

JORD Wood Watches, the completely unconventional watch company, is giving some ‘wrist candy’ to Beauty Info Zone readers in today’s giveaway!  JORD Wood Watches are all about getting back to nature.

Because each piece of wood has its own natural grain and color, every single watch is unique.  Their watches are unlike anything else on the timepiece market, and their products are made from sustainable material and high quality Quartz movement. They also have great giveaways each month on their website.  Here’s what happening this month:

Let’s see what Lisa and Marcia have to say about their JORD Watches and then enter to win a beautiful JORD Wood Watch for yourself or your significant other!

Lisa’s watch:

My watch is the Sully Series Black and Maple ($139), which is a larger faced watch that is perfect for the man in your life. The Sully series comes in either contrasting wood colors (maple, cherry and maple) or a single wood color (natural green or cherry). There are different options for the watch face color, mine is black. The Sully watches include a Citizen Miyota Quartz movement.

a big enough watch face to fit my husband’s rugged Popeye hands

It is beyond difficult to find a watch that my husband can wear. He has HUGE hands and Popeye forearms, so he dwarfs most watches and they end up looking silly on him. The Sully Series in Black and Maple has that large 33mm watch face so it is perfect for him. And boy, has this been a conversation piece! He tells me he gets all kinds of questions about the watch and people are simply fascinated that it’s made from maple wood. This is a really neat departure from typical time pieces and it is an accessory that gets all kinds of attention. I have bought my husband watches that cost five times the amount of this one, but he loves his JORD Wood Watch most of all. High praise from a very picky man!

Marcia’s watch:

I’m the one lucky enough to receive the smaller version that’s meant for women mostly. This is so unlike any watch I’ve ever owned that it makes it that much more fascinating.

Ely series of the Jord Watch

The ELY Series is available in 4 finishes: Maple, Cherry, Black and Natural Green & Maple (the one I have). This is the smallest face design of the watches that JORD creates. This watch fits me absolutely perfectly. There is nothing I need to do other than to clasp it on my wrist and enjoy it.

The specific dimensions are:

  • Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm diameter
  • Frame / bezel: 34mm diameter
  • Band width: 21.5mm
  • Lug ends: 40mm
  • Single action locking clasp (stainless steel)
  • Premium Citizen Miyota movement with date window

The watch is surprisingly feminine. At first I wondered what a wood watch would be like to wear and look at but I like the look for my very casual everyday lifestyle. If you saw me I’d be wearing jeans, a tee shirt or no-iron blouse, sturdy shoes and the jewelry I never take off (wedding band and 2 necklaces that my DH gave me over the years). Therefore this watch works perfectly for me. Very casual and a little rugged.  Plus the color looks good with all my nail polish choices.

Lisa didn’t really mention the packaging but it deserves to be mentioned since it is extremely well done and would help make this a gift to be admired.

One thing worth noting is that this is the first watch that I’ve been able to wear for a full day. I developed an allergy/reaction to most metals and get rashes normally. But my Ely Series JORD watch hasn’t produced any of that. I’m happy to be able to comfortably wear this watch since I’m always watching to see what time it is when I have my new granddaughter (naps, feeding etc).

Both Lisa and I are thrilled with our watches and we are excited that the JORD Watch company has offered one BIZ subscriber one of these in a giveaway. This giveaway is open for US only through 4/4/14 at 11:44 p.m. EST. The winner will be able to pick between the two watches shown in our review. Good luck with this great giveaway.

November Wantable Accessories Box: some beautiful new things

My crazy-to-the-point-of-being-a-stalker love for Wantable Accessories boxes continues. Every month it feels like they KNOW me, they really GET me, like no one ever has or ever will…  So I am officially and publicly professing my undying love for you, Wantable Accessories Box, and if it weren’t illegal in the state of Michigan I would propose marriage to you.

This month, Wantable magically knew that I needed more classic items to round out my mostly boho accessories collection, and it added in much needed metallics and architecturally interesting pieces.

The awesomely intuitive items Wantable sent me starts with the Giselle Watch ($36).

Giselle – silver tone and square face

classic and stunning

The Giselle Watch is classic in style, with a traditional silver tone and a sophisticated square face. It doesn’t show in the pictures, but the face has a slightly pearlized sheen that gives it even more interest. For an affordable watch, this looks very, very expensive…always a great find in fashion.

I tend to gravitate toward silver earrings, so even though I love gold I don’t seem to have much of it. I often find myself hurridly searching for gold earrings in the morning (because I am always running late!) without much success. So I was very happy to find the Karen Earrings ($22) inside my box of accessory awesomeness.

These beautiful bar earrings go with just about everything and the shape adds some interesting geometry to any look. These are classic earrings that thankfully end fruitless morning searches for basic gold earrings.

My last item is the truly stunning Lacey Scarf ($32). This lace print scarf is such a fabulous find – it’s a vintage look with classic colors.

fantastic, intricate pattern

The scarf is cream with an intricate black lace print, finished off with beautiful fringe detail. It is fancy enough for a night on the town and it looks amazing with a simple black turtleneck, skinny jeans, and boots. Perfection. Wantable, you never let me down.

All together, my items add up to $90…yet another reason to be crazy in love with Wantable, since a subscription box is $36 (or $40 for a one time box). Call me crazy for adoring this subscription accessory box so much…but I call you crazy if you aren’t a subscriber!!  – Lisa

The October Wantable Accessories Box is a beautiful new thing

Well, this is a subscription box that just keeps getting better and better! I am talking about the amazing Wantable Accessories Box…the selection sent to me for October has once again just blown me away.

The detailed questionnaire lets you choose what you love, like, and dislike in terms of styles and accessory types and the curators at Wantable pick the best pieces for you. Each month you are sent three or four boutique jewelry selections that match your preferences. If for some crazy reason you don’t like what you get, returns are always free. Want another reason to spoil yourself with accessories? The value. This month, my selections would retail for $92, but the Wantable Accessories Box is only $36 per month for a subscription – or you can try it out for one month for just $40.  It’s a beautiful thing!

October accessories are about classic style, vintage inspiration, and unexpected bright colors. Here are the three pieces that arrived perfectly packaged on my doorstep.

Ellen Necklace

Ellen Necklace

The Ellen Necklace (retails for $36) is, in a word, stunning. Every time I wear this I get constant compliments. People are just fascinated by the intricate metal working in this statement necklace. Wantable has done it again – I don’t think I would have ever picked this out for myself, but it totally works. They are freaking magicians there.

I wore my necklace to a wedding this month and it was just perfect. Wantable also suggests wearing it under a button-down top with the metallic beauty just peeking through for a perfect daytime work look. This was my ‘unexpected’ item, it draws attention and in a great way.

Next up:  the Betty Watch (retails for $36).

This watch is a sophisticated, modern way to accessorize your wardrobe. I am loving the navy faux-leather band and the square silver face. The face has a slightly opalescent appearance this is fantastic with the sleek band.

Wantable suggests pairing this watch with a cherry red manicure for a bit of nautical fun. This is a fantastic classic addition to my time pieces.

Speaking of fun…this last piece in my accessories box is beyond fun…it’s simply shameful.

Shameful Sunglasses

The Shameful Sunglasses (retails for $20) are the super fun, vintage inspired addition to all my beautiful new October accessories. Who doesn’t love an aviator frame especially when paired with that unexpected white enameled accent?

Shameful but so fun!

vintage love…

Wantable suggests pairing these vintage glam shades with wavy hair and bright pink lipstick to lighten up all that dark autumn drama.

My October Wantable Accessories Box is a huge hit for me.  It’s got it all – classic, modern, vintage – and it works!

I really think this is a PERFECT gift for the fashionista in your life – what a great present for your Project Runway-loving girlfriend or for your fashion-forward mom or MIL. Definitely consider gifting a subscription to someone you love…but first be shameless and get it for yourself.  – Lisa

Shameful...and shameless!
