Rebel against the black elastic with By Lilla!

By Lilla Peacock Stack

Let’s see a show of hands – how many of you wear your hair elastics around your wrist like a bracelet so you can quickly whip your locks into a pony whenever the mood strikes? Yeah, I know…me too. Why not make that nondescript…or dare I say UGLY…black elastic something beautiful and functional?? That’s what By Lilla is all about! I am really digging the gorgeous Peacock Stack, one of many fabulous options By Lilla has for rebelling against the black elastic, their company mission to change the world one beautiful hair tie at a time.

By Lilla’s mission began in 2009 and since then they have been devoted to creating total arm candy that is also total hair candy.  I am a sucker for anything that multi-tasks, and the Stacks are multi-tasking heaven. They have other items as well.

  • Flexible and functional
  • Newly launched designs
  • Customizing available
  • Available different packages, Stacks with 6-8 elastics ($48), Packs of Two with 2 elastics ($15) and Message Elastics ($18)

My Peacock Stack is one of 15 beautiful stacks available that range from classic black to funky fun multi-colored stacks. You can wear just one of the elastics or all of them, whatever you’d like. I like to wear the whole stack then choose a few to use as a hair tie, and mix those up depending on my mood. Each stack has between six and eight elastics. They are fun and functional, wear well, keep hair in place and look great!

By Lilla Peacock Stack

I think these are so much fun and are so much more stylish than those boring black elastics. By Lilla has other cool products like rings that you can also use at the end of your braids. Plus,they have a subscription box option which is five curated hair ties for $14 a month, and the price goes down if you purchase more months. You’ve got to check out the By Lilla website at bylilla.com and see what sort of bling tickles your fancy.  Have fun!  – Lisa

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

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.

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!

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

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

Evine and #peaceandlovejewelry come together with these beauties and a 3 person giveaway

As a beauty blogger you know that beauty of all kinds is my jam. I want it all – skincare, eyeshadow, blush, highlighters, concealers, brushes – and the list goes on. But what are my other loves? How about jewelry? Are you with me on that? Who doesn’t love some new affordable jewelry products in their life? Fashion Flash has been working with Evine and Nancy Davis of Peace & Love Jewelry #peaceandlovejewelry. Today I bring you a giveaway for 3 US readers that I’m very excited about.

Let me share a little about Nancy Davis and Peace & Love. On both Sunday May 20th and Monday May 21st Nancy Davis will be live on Evine to share her Peace & Love Jewelry (2 p.m. and 7 p.m. CDT) and Invicta watches (May 20-21). Seeing this dynamo of a woman is a treat, seeing the jewelry and watches is excitement.

Nancy Davis and #peaceandlovejewelry items

Nancy Davis and #peaceandlovejewelry items

Five Fashion Flash bloggers are giving away a variety of these #peaceandlovejewelry items. The three prizes I have are a beautiful Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet, a Baby Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Watch with 7 interchangeable bands (Pink), and a Grand Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Watch with 7 interchangeable bands (Blue).

Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet

Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet

Sweet, shimmering style that’s totally you! Say something particular about yourself with this gorgeous adjustable slide bracelet. Sparkling white zircons encrust a charm in your choice of shape right at the center. Four bezel-set white topazes link both sides of the charm to the box link chain at the back of the bracelet. Simply slide the bead to get just the right fit for your wrist.
While these beautiful bracelets come in 14 styles I’m lucky enough to have the CROWN PEACE & LOVE with 8 round modified-brilliant cut 3mm white topaz and various round modified-brilliant cut 0.9-1.99mm stones.

Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet Back view

One of the things I really admire about this bracelet is how adjustable it is. I happen to have a large wrist and it fits me perfectly. My DIL (above picture) is tiny and she thought the bracelet was wonderfully comfortable.  Measurements for this bracelet are  9″L x 3/4″W x 1/8″H.

Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watches

Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watches

Look at these great spring and summer styles of the Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watches. There are two different sizes with 2 “colors” each. The Baby set is the smaller of the two though the look of both is identical.

Baby Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

Baby Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

The Baby Set that I’m able to give away is the one called pink and has a pink heart face. It has 7 leather straps (light orange, aqua, bright pink, red, yellow, white, and black). Here’s some stats: the case is 34mm L x 29mm W, it’s 14mm thick, the crystal is Flame Fusion and has a push/pull crown, the strap is 8-3/4″ L x 16mm W and fits up to an 8″ wrist.

Grand Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

Grand Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

The Grand size is bigger and since I have the blue set with the blue heart face to give away the strap colors are different too (orange, black, white, yellow, brown, chartreuse and blue). This one fits a wrist up to 9-3/4″ and the strap is 10-3/4″ L x 26mm W. peace and love

The dial lives up to the Peace & Love name with a heart and peace sign in pink or blue. Backed by clean white color, it’s easy to read and even easier to show off. Petal-shaped hour markers and Arabic numerals fill the hour positions as Tritnite gives the hands a warm glow…kind of like the feeling you’ll get when you know this watch commemorates the Race to Erase MS foundation. The watches come in a sturdy lined box that will keep your water resistant watch and straps in perfect shape.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Beauty Info Zone has been sent these 3 #peaceandlovejewelry items to give to 3 different US readers. On the Rafflecopter you’ll need to comment which piece you’d most like to win or you can comment the order that you’d like to win. We hope you’ll tune into EVINE to see these for yourself and to buy one for an upcoming gift. With high school and college graduation here, these would be perfect. The giveaway runs through 5/29 so it’s shorter than usual. Don’t be late to the party!  —  Marcia

Starting to think Mother’s Day, showers, or graduations? Then you need Soufeel!

Soufeel

I am loving delicate necklaces that feature tiny stars for spring, so I hopped on over to one of my favorite online jewelry sites – SOUFEEL – to get myself a few.  While I was there I also fell for their monogrammed necklaces. So much beautiful jewelry!! All SOUFEEL charms are 925 sterling silver and the crystals are from Swarovski. Plus, SOUFEEL offers free shipping with orders over $49 and 365-day returns and exchanges. In addition to building my own collection, Mother’s Day and many graduations are coming up – and SOUFEEL is a terrific place to buy gifts. Oh, I’ve also got a 10% off coupon for you – SHS10

Every time I have ordered from SOUFEEL I’ve found the delivery to be super fast, and everything arrives in this pretty little box with a blue bow. They also include a gift bag and a black cleaning cloth.  samples
Soufeel Moon and Stars Necklace

Soufeel Moon and Stars NecklaceSoufeel Moon and Stars NecklaceSoufeel Moon and Stars Necklace

Soufeel Moon and Stars Necklace

The Moon and Stars Necklace ($79, on sale now for $29.95) is simply stunning. This is a double strand necklace with stars on the top strand and a moon charm on the bottom strand. The stars and the moon are covered in Swarovski crystals, so for the sale price this is incredible! It was very difficult to get a photo of me wearing the necklace because the crystals were so brilliant, so I used the stock photo from SOUFEEL to give you an idea of what it looks like on.

Soufeel All Stars Towards Moon Necklace in RoseSoufeel All Stars Towards Moon Necklace in RoseSoufeel All Stars Towards Moon Necklace in Rose

The All Stars Towards Moon in Rose ($50, on sale now for $100) is so so pretty I am absolutely in love!! It’s so delicate and feminine and I don’t have anything in rose so I am thrilled with this. The little stars are tiny delights and the moon has Swarovski crystals that look amazing.

Soufeel Engravable Three Disc NecklaceSoufeel Engravable Three Disc NecklaceSoufeel Engravable Three Disc Necklace

I bought myself a mommy necklace with the Engravable 3 Disc Necklace in Silver (regularly $58, on sale right now for $35). It also comes in Rose and 14K Gold. If you have three children it’s just perfect! The discs lay flat, although when wearing the necklace they look a little more separated. I have absolutely no mommy jewelry so this has quickly become my favorite. If you have a giftee who has three kids or three grandkids, I can’t think of a better present.

It’s time to add a bit of seasonal flair to your jewelry wardrobe! And let me tell you, if you’ve got a jewelry loving friend who needs a graduation or shower gift, SOUFEEL is a terrific option. Take a look at their website at www.soufeel.com, and plan some time to browse because you will be mesmerized with all the options! And don’t forget, for an extra 10% off just use the coupon code SHS10 .  – Lisa
