May 2018 Your Bijoux Box

The May 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 May has different options for one of the necklaces. A monthly subscription is $39.99 and there are options for a three-month ($115) or six month ($230) subscription. They ship to the US (free!) and Canada.

This month the items are stunning, classic and timeless. Your Bijoux Box often features House of Harlow and these pieces are very complementary to previous items which makes it a fun way to build an amazing accessory wardrobe.

Native Legends Collar

Native Legends Collar

The star of the box is the House of Harlow Native Legends Collar, which has a listed value of $98. Now, some boxes come with a different necklace – other options are also House of Harlow necklaces, Age of Antiquity Bolo Necklace or the Del Sol Reversible Station Necklace. The Native Legends Collar is gorgeous – gold dipped metal with lapis lazuli and turquoise. I love the angular style, and this lays flat, it doesn’t twist and turn like a lot of other necklaces I have in this style. I get so many compliments on this necklace! Beautiful. It also has an extender.

Sparkle-On Lariat

Sparkle-On Lariat

Sparkle-On Lariat

I can’t decide which necklace I love more, the Native Legends Collar or the sleek and fabulous Sparkle-On Lariat. I loved this so much I broke my own rule and wore it – twice!! – before I photographed it. The gold chain is long, smooth, and super shiny, and you can adjust the lariat to change it up. The little discs on the end are sparkly and pretty. I just love it.  

Back and Forth Earrings

Back and Forth Earrings

I always adore anything that multi-tasks, and the Back and Forth Earrings are 3-in-1 earrings that work for every mood. The hoops can go in the front or in the back, like in my photo, or you can wear the bars by themselves for a sweet dainty look. The bars have little tiny sparkling stones. The gold tone works with both the necklaces so all the pieces coordinate.  

Golden Tote by artists Lili and Delilah

I love how Your Bijoux Box includes a bonus item in each box and this month’s item is fun and practical. It’s a Golden Tote by artists Lili and Delilah and it’s either in the style Hello Love or else XO which is what I received. This is very sturdy and roomy tote with a gold vinyl exterior and a canvas interior. Great for quick shopping trips or for overnight trips!  

I am very impressed with this month’s selection – every item is excellent quality and the value is tremendous. The Native Legends Collar alone is worth over two times the price of the box. Your Bijoux Box comes wrapped perfectly with the items in beautiful little bags too, so it’s perfect for gifting if you so desire.

It’s a garden party with the April 2018 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux Box April 2018

I love a party and the thought of a garden party is especially enticing after the brutal and particularly LONG winter we have had in Michigan this year.  Your Bijoux Box read my mind and sent a truly fabulous spring box full of baubles just blooming with light and lots of spirit. Each item is perfect for garden party or a bridal or baby shower and there is really every you need – an adjustable length statement necklace, a beautiful feminine watch, pearl jacket earrings, plus some super sassy bonus extras.

Your Bijoux Box Garden Party Necklace

The April 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. A monthly subscription is $39.99 and there are options for a three-month ($115) or six month ($230) subscription. They ship to the US (free!) and Canada.

This month the items are really adorable, super feminine and just so pretty – I can’t get over the necklace. I think it is my favorite Your Bijoux Box piece of all time. And the bonus item may be my favorite bonus, too…

Your Bijoux Box Pearl Jacket Earrings

Your Bijoux Box Pearl Jacket Earrings

I’ll start with the Pearl Jacket Earrings. I don’t usually wear earrings like this so they are out of my wheelhouse, which is why I think this type of subscription box is cool. I love the mix of classic pearls and the modern design.

Your Bijoux Box All About Rose Gold Watch

The All About Rose Gold Watch is, as Your Bijoux Box says, total arm candy. This watch is actually two toned and is girly and gorgeous. My current watch is silver so I was really excited to see this – what a perfect second watch!!

My favorite piece in the April 2018 Your Bijoux Box is this stunner, the Garden Party Necklace. Such an amazing necklace! I adore the peach tassel accents and the length is adjustable which makes it extremely versatile. The flowers are even more beautiful in person. Put this together with the earrings and the watch and you have a complete set perfect for any party.

The bonus extra are these sassy Coasters by Anne Taintor. The set includes six coasters in three different patterns with vintage beauties throwing just a bit of shade. I have a similar set also from Anne Taintor that I picked up from a local boutique so I was thrilled to get this one! It all fits together, doesn’t it? A little retro, a little sassy, a little girly, and a lot of fun.

Going Green with the March 2018 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

March 2018 Your Bijoux Box

March is a beautiful month in Michigan.  Spring is here, the trees are starting to bud, and the grass is becoming more green every day.  It seems like each day brings something new – especially the day I found my Your Bijoux Box on my porch!  This lovely box was full of green surprises in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, and I found a lovely Celtic necklace, stacked ring, cuff bracelet, and bonus headband inside.

March 2018 Your Bijoux Box

March 2018 Your Bijoux Box

The March 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 March has different options for the bracelet. A monthly subscription is $39.99 and there are options for a three-month ($115) or six month ($230) subscription. They ship to the US (free!) and Canada.

This month’s box did arrive in time for St. Patrick’s Day – I’m sorry I haven’t had a chance to post about it until now, but all the greenery with the super cute bags was really perfect.  The items in this month’s box are truly gorgeous.

Celtic Princess Collar

Celtic Princess Collar

The first item I found was the Celtic Princess Collar, a crystal accented necklace.  This is roughly 20 inches long, and it has a 3 inch extender so you can adjust it.  I am not sure why it’s called Celtic since it doesn’t seem very Celtic to me, but I forgive that since it’s so pretty – photos don’t really do it justice.

Aowyn Emerald Ring

Next I found the Aowyn Emerald Ring, a gold stacked ring featuring delicate flashes of green.  Isn’t this gorgeous??  I love this and wear it all the time.  It’s adjustable so it will fit anyone and most of your fingers.

House of Harlow Native Legend Cuff

House of Harlow Native Legend Cuff

The superstar piece of the month is the House of Harlow Native Legend Cuff, which has a retail value of $78.  This is a gold plated cuff that is adjustable and so easy to pop on and off.  Some people will get the kind that came in my box with turquoise stones, and some will get the version with malachite stones.

Deepa by Deepa Gurnani Headband

Deepa by Deepa Gurnani Headband

Deepa by Deepa Gurnani Headband

The surprise extra is the Deepa by Deepa Gurnani Headband which has a retail value of $60.  This is an artisan headband with iridescent beads in a chevron pattern.  It’s really beautiful and very comfy.  I have a pretty sensitive head and often headbands give me a headache if they are too tight.  This one is easy to wear – it doesn’t slip off and it doesn’t make my head hurt…plus it looks so pretty!  Love it.

I am absolutely enjoying the luck of the Irish with this gorgeous green box for March.

Spring is a wonderful time to update your jewelry wardrobe, and Your Bijoux Box is a terrific way to do so…while also treating yourself to a few surprises! – Lisa

Love gorgeous jewelry? Then you will love AUrate New York!

The best quality.  The best prices.  The best standards.  That’s certainly what I want when I do my jewelry shopping.  I am really excited about AUrate, a fantastic online shopping experience for everything from diamond necklaces to stackable rings.  (They also have lovely brick and mortar stores on Madison Avenue in New York, on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, and on Newbury in Boston.)  AUrate’s beautiful online shopping site features gorgeous modern jewelry made with love and so much more.

AUrate New York Flower Earrings

AUrate carries a large variety of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings at price points from $50 to $3,000.  The styles range from simple and demure to big and bold, but everything is world-class.  AUrate insists on the highest ethical and environmental standards for every single piece of jewelry made in their store.

AUrate New York Diamond Snake Ring

Check out their website for information about the purest forms of gold, the types of pearls, and the S1-clarity diamonds that adorn the jewels that come from the house of AUrate.

AUrate New York X Cuff Bracelet

There are lots of reasons that I am totally sold on AUrate.  All of the jewelry is made by craftsmen in New York City, and every piece comes with a lifetime guarantee.  AUrate’s business model is based on honesty and transparency – imagine that, fair pricing in the jewelry world!  Yes, it’s true – fine jewelry with no concessions.  They also give back through supporting literacy programs in New York.  You can read all about their campaign and watch their videos on the AUrate website.

AUrate NY Simple Pearl Necklace

AUrate NY Simple Pearl Necklace

I was lucky enough to be able to choose a necklace for review, and I went simple and demure with the Simple Pearl Necklace ($200, 14k necklace).  This beautiful necklace features a sustainably grown 6mm Akoya pearl that has a soft pinky/peach sheen.  Mine has an 18 inch white trace chain with a lobster clasp.  It has an extra jump ring at 15 inches so I can shorten it if I want.

My necklace came in a sturdy pale pink box, and inside the box the necklace was ensconced in a pale pink envelope.  The packaging is chic, elegant, and perfect.  The necklace itself is divine – a classic, a piece that will never go out of style.  I can wear this with a little black dress and heels, and I can wear it with jeans and a white button down blouse.  Or if I want to be really naughty I can wear it with nothing at all and I’ll still look like a million bucks!

My  Simple Pearl Necklace is truly just the tip of the iceberg – there are so many gorgeous options on the AUrate website.  If you are lucky enough to visit one of their stores in person in New York or Boston definitely do so!  If not, check out the online store HERE and be prepared to shop until you drop.  – Lisa

Save time and whiten teeth with these winter beauty hacks from Aquis and Mira-Teeth!

Winter Beauty Hacks!

Winter means static, which causes havoc on your hair. It also means pale skin, which emphasizes yellowing teeth. How about a few winter beauty hacks to solve these problems? Sleek gorgeous hair and white beautiful teeth – yes, please!!

samples, affiliate links

To take care of frizz and static, and to also minimize the time your hair is wet and cut down your styling time you’ve got to try AQUIS Hair Towels and Turbans.

Aquis Towel Lisse Luxe in Chevron

Saving time – like 50% less time with the blow dryer – plus destroying annoying static is a major winter beauty hack. Beauty Info Zone has been using AQUIS Hair Towels and Turbans for years.  I love the Hair Turban which has been my go-to forever, but recently I’ve converted to the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel (19 x 52 in – 50 x 132cm).

AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel

AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel

Aquis Lisse Luxe Towel in Chevron

Nice to have something that is specific for long hair! It’s longer than the regular size, about 25% more, which I need since my hair is about mid-back length. The towel is made with AQUITEX, which dries hair super quick and cuts down on frizz and split ends. It also has magical properties that make for static-free hair! It’s incredible.

If you have thick, course/textured hair you will want the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Hair Towel ($35/Sephora.com) Most hair types will do great with the AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Towel ($30/Sephora.com). And of course if you have long hair like mine, go with the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel ($45/Sephora.com).

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

How about a hack for super white teeth? The Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel is what you need, not only as a whitening hack but also as a traveling hack. This toothbrush is the answer to rotating or swiveling brush heads, providing a gentler cleaning without irritating the gums. The results are pretty powerful – a super deep antibacterial cleaner and tooth whitener within a totally transportable toothbrush.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

First of all, this toothbrush cleans teeth FAST. The ultrasound works via air oscillations and it actually cleans teeth in just 60 to 90 seconds – talk about saving time!! Even if you have ‘deep pockets’ this is a toothbrush for you, because the ultrasound penetrates deeply and gets in even the smallest crevices with very little effort on your part.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush – you know it’s on when the blue lights are on

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush comes with two brush heads

It’s also extremely gentle. You don’t have to fight with plaque because the ultrasound breaks it up. It gets rid of tartar and you won’t experience bleeding gums brushing with the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush.

A major plus is the ultrasound really attacks stains! It takes your teeth right back to their original color while it gets rid of all that bacteria and plaque. If you smoke, drink wine, eat a lot of beets, whatever…this toothbrush (and the special toothpaste) will take care of everything for you – and quickly.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

Speaking of the toothpaste, you want to use the Mira-Teeth Toothpaste for the best results. It tastes great and it’s specially formulated for use with the ultrasonic toothbrush – you don’t use the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush with regular toothpaste. The ultrasonic brush makes microscopic nanobubbles in this toothpaste that do all the work and keep teeth healthy, protecting enamel and reducing wear and tear on teeth.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush

Brushing your teeth with the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush couldn’t be easier. You first brush normally with the toothbrush and toothpaste to get rid of large food particles, then you turn on the ultrasound and hold the brush head against the surface of your teeth (inside, outside, and chewing surfaces) for a few seconds. That’s it! The brush rarely needs charging and you do that with the included USB cable.

I am extremely impressed with this toothbrush – my teeth are incredibly clean in such a short time and they are definitely whiter.  It really is amazing! And what a terrific toothbrush for travel – no worries about charging or plugging it in and every time I brush I get a whitening treatment. The Mira-Teeth Starter Kit retails for $199 and is available on Techmira.com.

With these winter beauty hacks I am ready for another six more weeks of winter or more no problem!  – Lisa

Cheers! The January 2018 Your Bijoux Box has arrived in style #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Surprises are fun! Well, most of them are…I can’t say I was thrilled about that surprise $400 phone bill this month. The surprises in my January Your Bijoux Box were far, far more enjoyable! Your Bijoux Box brought me lots of elegance – matching earrings and a classic Y necklace, along with an incredible architectural gold necklace, plus a surprise bonus jewelry tray.

January 2018 Your Bijoux Box

The January 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 January has different options for one of the necklaces. A monthly subscription is $39.99 and there are options for a three-month ($115) or six month ($230) subscription. They ship to the US (free!) and Canada.

Ysabel Earrings

The first item I found were the 3-inch-long Ysabel Earrings. These are cobalt blue hanging earrings that frame the face and really stand out, even for those of us with longer hair. I love these earrings – they have great movement and look incredible on.  They are very versatile and look just as good with jeans and a t-shirt as they do with a little black dress. They match the Ysabel Y Necklace.

Ysabel Y Necklace

Ysabel Y Necklace

The Ysabel Y Necklace is a lengthy 19 inches long with a full 3 inches of extender chain. The center length is five and a half inches. I wear tons of long necklaces so I was very pleased to find this classic beauty in the box. I don’t ever wear it with the earrings, though – somehow, together it’s just overkill. Separately, they are statements enough to stand alone. Both are gorgeous and hardy enough to classify as essential workhorses in your jewelry wardrobe. Your Bijoux Box did a terrific job curating these pieces, in my opinion.

Jules Smith Necklace

Jules Smith Necklace

The superstar piece of the month is the Jules Smith Necklace. This is the necklace style that came in my box – your piece may vary. I am totally digging the art deco vibe! I can’t find this particular piece online, so I’m not sure what the value is, but Your Bijoux Box says that the Jules Smith pieces they include in the subscription boxes can retail for up to $175. I am totally going to pair this with the Jules Smith bracelets that came in my November 2017 Your Bijoux Box – remember these beauties??

Jules Smith Bracelets

The surprise extra in the January 2018 Your Bijoux Box is a cute Cheers! Jewelry Tray, which is rimmed in gold and features a cream background and black details.

Cheers! Jewelry Tray

It’s very attractive and a great place to put your rings, watch, earrings, etc.  I have been using it as place for the jewelry I pick out to wear for the next day so I don’t have to go hunting around in the morning and it saves me a few minutes.

I love this month’s box of elegance and style. I am getting tons of use out of every single item. These lovely baubles took all the sting out of that horrific phone bill, that’s for sure!

If you are new to Your Bijoux Box and want to sign up, use the coupon code WELCOME to get a bonus piece of jewelry with your first box!

It’s a great time to treat yourself to a nice surprise once a month. I know I always look forward to it! – Lisa

Beautiful and unique – The Eternity Rose Necklace and Earrings

We get some really interesting gift ideas at Beauty Info Zone, and The Eternity Rose is one of the most intriguing I’ve seen in a long time. One of their specialties is a real rose that has been dipped in silver, gold, or platinum – they are truly stunning.  But what caught my eye were the necklace and earring sets. Oh my goodness, they are gorgeous!!  

There are two types – one that has a heart theme and one that has a leaf theme. I chose the heart theme. I also chose the purple color, although other colors are just as beautiful – Red, White, Pink, and Blue in addition to the Purple. Every set comes with a certificate of authenticity – these are real, natural rose petals that have been glazed and trimmed with pure 24 karat gold. What a beautiful, interesting and unique gift!

samples

I know it’s a little early but just starting thinking about Valentines Day…wouldn’t this be perfect?? These would also make fantastic bridesmaids gifts, or birthday gifts, or even Mother’s Days gifts. So many options! I just like the fact that they are so different, so unusual – not to mention really and truly stunning.
