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.

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.

Put some POW! into New Years EVE with IT Cosmetics!

What to wear for New Years Eve…take a quick trip to Ulta and spend those gift cards that Santa gave you on some IT Cosmetics and you’ll have all the cosmetics you’ll need for superhero-worthy beauty that lasts all night. Of course, you’ll want to pick up my ultimate favorite concealer – I can’t believe it has even surpassed my precious favorite, Bye Bye Undereye (which is still freaking fantastic). I think I love this one even better now that I’m older and my skin is a little dryer, the Bye Bye Undereye Concealing Pot is slightly creamier and man is it good.

samples affiliates Next, use the CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream – no need for any primer – and you have the perfect base for everything else.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

For cheeks, I adore the Bye Bye Pores Blush in Sweet Cheeks, which makes pores disappear. Some blushes seem to settle right into pores and make them look like huge craters – ugh, you know what I mean. This pressed powder does the opposite, leaving skin looking practically poreless thanks to Optical Blurring Technology and anti-aging silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and peptides. Sweet Cheeks is such pretty peachy/gold/pink.

Now, let’s talk EYES.  No one does eyes like IT Cosmetics! Their Superhero Palette is, in my humble opinion, outstanding. It’s divided into three sections – one section with very subtle, nude shades, one with what they call neutral shades but they do have more oomph, and one that has lots of drama and can be used as liners. All sections have a lovely buttery texture with lots of pigment and fantastic lasting power.  Marcia did an excellent review of the shades HERE which I won’t repeat, but here are some pics for you:

Nudes Eye Base

Nudes swatched

The Nudes shades are indeed subtle, and give a very natural but finished look. You can wear them by themselves or else combine them with other colors in the palette.

IT Cosmetics Eye Foundation Neutral

Neutral Eyeshadows

Neutral Eyeshadow swatches

The Neutrals are beautiful shades are a little more than neutral, really – I think they pack a punch. I love them – particularly the golden shade that plays well with my hazel eyes. Beautiful!

IT Cosmetics Liners Eye Foundation

Liners

Liner swatches

The Liners shades are beautiful. You can use them wet or dry. They are fantastic accents for the crease as well.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush

The perfect brush, by the way, for this amazing palette is the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush ($29). This is an amazing brush totally worthy of its name!! Goodness knows I love a multi-tasker, and this takes multi-tasking to a new extreme.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush Liner side

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush All Over Brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush Crease brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush Smudger brush

One side is the liner brush, and the other side slides to become three different brushes – an all-over shadow brush, a crease brush, and a smudge brush. This is the perfect travel brush.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Liner

IT Cosmetics Superhero Eyeliner swatch

Of course, you also need a superhero worthy eyeliner and IT Cosmetics has that too – the Superhero Liner ($24). This is one of the easiest liquid eyeliners I have ever used. It goes on with the ease of a marker but it still has the power of a liquid liner. It also really lasts without peeling or chipping. The brush is like a felt tip brush and it keeps its quality without fraying or bending.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara wand

Superhero Mascara ($24) finishes out your look with super thick, super long, super black lashes. I love this mascara. It has something called Proprietary Elastic Stretch Technology that I can’t even pretend to understand, but somehow it wraps each lash in a ‘black cape of power and color’ which sounds pretty darn cool. Whatever it does, it makes my lashes look fantastic, which is good enough for me!!

Valencia Key Shero Earrings

Now that your face looks AH-MAZING, why not accent it with this fabulous Valencia Key earrings? Valencia Key Earrings are for Dreamers, Believers, and Achievers.  Check them out at valenciakey.com.  Not only are these earring gorgeous, they come with this message:

Valencia Key Shero Earrings

You are courageous!  You are inspiring! You are extraordinary!  On your journey to achieve your dreams and live your life’s purpose, wear these beautiful VALENCIA KEY Shero Earrings, infused with sunshine, joy and love.  Shine bright in life!  Sending you lots of love and light!

And that, dear reader, is my holiday wish for you. Have fun shopping, shine bright, and always remember – you are extraordinary.  – Lisa

Artisan Chic! Your Bijoux Box August 2017 review #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux Box August 2017

sample/affiliate links

August brings another Your Bijoux Box, this one full of artisan chic pieces that are a perfect way to wind down these beautiful summer months. This month Your Bijoux Box sent me a gorgeous bracelet, a reversible necklace, bright modern earrings, and a surprise fourth item, a lightweight scarf that will transition right into fall. 

The August 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 August has different style options for some pieces and different metal options for the earrings. 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.

Deepa Gurnani Bracelet

Deepa Gurnani Bracelet: This is a stunning artisan bracelet that is handmade in India. Everyone gets a slightly different style because they are all made by hand. Isn’t it beautiful? I love the detail. The bracelet is hand-embroidered with resin crystals and has a suede backing. This has a lovely, laid back vibe.

Triangular Necklace by House of Harlow

Triangular Necklace by House of Harlow: Love this deco-inspired necklace that does double duty – it’s reversible, with one side black leather and the other metal geometric designs. Styles vary, so other boxes have different treats, but I am thrilled with the one I received.

Huaca Pyramids Hoops by House of Harlow

I love how over the months the different pieces really complement one another – I love wearing this particular necklace with the House of Pyramids hoops from last month’s box.

Paloma Earrings

Paloma Earrings: I think the Paloma Earrings are my favorite items in this month’s box. Mine came in silver, although some boxes have the gold option. They are truly gorgeous. Modern, sleek, just beautiful and they show up so well with my long dark hair!

Life of Fashion Scarf

The bonus item this month is the Life of Fashion Scarf, a lightweight scarf that has a lovely mix of colors – taupe, grey, and chocolate. It’s wonderful for slightly chilly summer evenings and is a perfect scarf for transitioning into fall.

The August 2017 Your Bijoux Box is an excellent assortment of artisan chic pieces that are great additions to my accessories collection. Your Bijoux Box is a really fun subscription box and they have some great anniversary specials this month, so it’s a perfect time to sign up if you haven’t already!   – Lisa

It’s getting hot with the July 2017 Your Bijoux Box!

July 2017 Your Bijoux Box

The hot, hazy days of July are here and so is a hot hot hot Your Bijoux Box! I love finding a box of surprises on my porch, especially when that box is full of accessories.  Woohoo! This month Your Bijoux Box sent me a statement necklace, a beachy necklace, earrings that go with everything, and a surprise fourth item, a body wash sponge that is perfect for travel.                   sample, affiliate links

Catalina Turquoise Necklace

Catalina Turquoise Necklace

Catalina Turquoise Necklace:  I do love turquoise in the summer. It looks so stunning with tanned skin and breezy white clothes! The Catalina Turquoise Necklace is a gorgeous two strand necklace with art deco-style turquoise jewels. This is a beautiful piece that goes with everything from a string bikini to a maxi dress. It’s a fabulous summer statement necklace.

Summer Inspiration Necklace

Summer Inspiration Necklace:  The second necklace in this month’s box of hotness is a delicate 14K gold dipped starfish with tiny crystals. It’s a wonderful everyday necklace by Lucky Feather and I love the inspirational message: “Wear this necklace and let your worries drift away towards the sea.  Ocean waters are both calm and rough, seek the peace that you desire.”  I haven’t taken this off since it arrived.

Huaca Pyramids Hoops by House of Harlow

Huaca Pyramids Hoops by House of Harlow

Huaca Pyramids Hoops by House of Harlow

Huaca Pyramids Hoops by House of Harlow:  These hoops are classic and funky at the same time – and that isn’t easy to do. The tiny spikes make me feel just a little rebellious, but the size of the hoops make them also feel deceptively conservative. I love it! The Huaca Pyramid Hoops come in either silver or gold, mine came in silver. They are staples that I will reach for over and over.

Beach Grass Spongette

The bonus item this month is the Beach Grass Spongette, a sponge full of cleanser. Put it under water and squeeze for lots of soap. What a genius idea for travel. Nothing to spill, nothing to worry about at the airport. Just squeeze out any excess water after your shower or bath and the sponge is good to go for next time. It’s really perfect for any last-minute summer trips.

The July 2017 Your Bijoux Box  is totally hot and perfect for summer. Your Bijoux Box continues to be one of my most favorite subscription boxes and a great surprise to find on my porch!   – Lisa

Your Bijoux Box May 2017 review! #YourBijouxBoxStyle

May 2017 Your Bijoux Box

April showers brought May flowers….and May brought a beautiful box from Your Bijoux Box!  This month’s sweet selection includes a statement necklace, a long necklace, stunning earrings, and a sassy retro wallet.  It’s well worth the $36 and certainly was a lovely spring surprise to find on my porch!     sample, affiliate links
May 2017 Your Bijoux BoxThe May Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three jewelry pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three items for women (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, although May was a little different – there were two styles of necklaces available and two styles of earrings, so each box was a little different. 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.

Your Bijoux Box May 2017My box arrived pretty early in May, before Mother’s Day, so the pretty card inside was wonderful.  Actually, this would have made a great gift for my mom (although I was a selfish daughter and kept for myself…hopefully I’m not going to burn in hell for it.)

Anne Taintor Wallet

In honor of Mother’s Day, Your Bijoux Box included this awesome extra – the super sassy and fabulously retro Anne Taintor Wallet.  Love the pink, love the wrap around zipper, and seriously – stop me before I volunteer again, would you??

Peony Necklace

Speaking of retro, the Peony Necklace is a statement piece with a retro vibe all its own.  The opalescent petals with golden stones are feminine and unique, and it’s something that you can wear with a strappy sundress or with a white t-shirt, capris, and wedges for lunch with the girlfriends.

There are two possibilities for earrings, both from House of Harlow:  either the blue and green pyramid stud Meatora Earrings, or the Tessellation Earrings.  Lucky me, I got the Tessellation Earrings, which perfectly match my Tessellation Cuff from a previous box!!Your Bijoux Box Tessellation Cuff

I love the gorgeous geometric design, and my House of Harlow collection is growing.  All the pieces are so complimentary to one another – I’m quite impressed.  The Tessellation Earrings are gold with silvery crystals, so they are very versatile.

The final item is the House of Harlow Chain.  Your box will either have the Frequency Necklace in gold or the Torre Pyramids Necklace in either silver or gold.  My box had the Frequency Necklace, which is a great match with the Tessellation Earrings.  It’s an odd necklace, though – I find the length challenging for me.  It will work great on those with a longer – or shorter – torso.  For me, it seems to hit at just the wrong spot, and all the little triangle pyramids keep flipping over.  I actually sort of hiked the necklace up a bit to try to get a good photo of it on.  I think I probably would have liked the Torre Pyramids Necklace better, but that’s part of the beauty of subscription boxes…you just never know what you are going to get, and anything I don’t like someone else LOVES so it makes for an awesome gift.

The May 2017 Your Bijoux Box  is a great assortment of cool and sassy pieces.  If you haven’t signed up for Your Bijoux Box yet, why not do it now?  Click HERE for 50% off your first box on 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions!!  – Lisa
