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

July 2017 Your Bijoux Box

July 2017 Your Bijoux Box

The July 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 July had two color 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.

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 June 2017

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

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

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

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.

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.

House of Harlow Tessellation Earrings

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

April 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

We are already more than halfway through April – time is flying – and the best part about it are the subscription boxes that I find on my porch each month!! April has already been excellent thanks to the latest Your Bijoux Box.  It truly is an outstanding collection this month.        sample, affiliate links

Your Bijoux Box April 2017

Your Bijoux Box April 2017

The April Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (this month there were three jewelry items plus two extra items). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized, everyone gets the same jewelry each month, although April was special – there were multiple styles of necklaces available, so each box had a real surprise. It’s been really cool to check out which style of necklace everyone else got, although I am totally happy with the necklace I received.  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 April 2017

The April Collection featured Karen Kane pieces which made me dance a happy spring dance since I adore this line. All the pieces coordinate so well I found myself wearing every single piece on the same day…I think that’s the first time that’s happened for me with a subscription box collection.

  1.  Karen Kane Gold Hoops ($31):  apparently the styles vary a bit on these earrings, with some styles thicker and a bit smaller. I couldn’t be happier with the ones I got. The shape is interesting – just a bit oblong, and even though they aren’t a closed hoop I had no problem with my hair getting caught in them. I have nothing like these classically beautiful gold hoops so they were the beginning of my major happy dance.

2. Goldenrod Statement Bracelet: this pretty chunky bracelet features greenish/gold crystals and an adjustable size. I love the toggle and hoop closure which is so much easier to navigate than a clasp. Sometimes I wear it loose, sometimes I go for the snug fit, but however I wear it I know it looks stunning. This is a great bracelet.

3.  Karen Kane Pink Reversible Pendant Necklace (up to $120):  I’ve seen lots of gorgeous versions on other blogs who review Your Bijoux Box, but I think I like my style of necklace best!!  My Karen Kane Necklace is a multi-tasker, with one side a rectangle of tiny crystals that are incredibly brilliant, and the other side a soft and feminine peachy peach rimmed with gold. Take a look at some of the other blogs and their reviews, like My Subscription Addiction, Subscription Box Ramblings, and Hello Subscription so you can see a few other necklace styles.  (I definitely got the best one, although they are all super pretty!!).

4.  April Flowers Hair Pins:  These two feminine and gorgeous hair pins were the extras in this month’s box. I am loving hair jewelry for spring and I actually think these two little surprises just might be my favorite items in the April Your Bijoux Box. They are so cute together on one side, but sometimes I use one for each side to mix it up a little.

Unboxing The Zoe Report Box of Style

The Zoe Report Box of StyleWho doesn’t want a stylist? I know when something looks great but I’m not always the best at actually finding the items and picking them out. Probably the most famous stylist with a terrific eye for the latest and greatest is Rachel Zoe. Since it’s not likely that I will ever actually be styled by Rachel, The Zoe Report Box of Style is a fabulous alternative.                                                                        sample

Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe

Here’s how you know this box of fashion and beauty is incredible – every single box has sold out since Box of Style launched in March 2015. The Zoe Report Editor-in-Chief, Rachel Zoe, and her team of editors curate 5 full-sized products that are worth over $400. I am not kidding, this box is one ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ after another. Here’s the general info first, then I’ll give you the scoop on the current box.

You can get each individual box for $100, or subscribe for the year for $350.  The yearly price is worth the investment because you are guaranteed the box, and the spring box alone has over $400 worth of product in it. Each box has a ‘hero’ piece that is worth over $100. Women who will love this box are those who love fashion and style but just don’t have time to shop for the latest items. If you are into upscale style at a great price, or if you want to venture outside your typical comfort zone but don’t want to invest in a personal stylist, this is the perfect way to meet all those wants and spoil yourself without breaking the bank.

The Zoe Report Box of Style Spring 2017

The Zoe Report Box of Style Spring 2017

What is special about the Spring 2017 Edition?  Every single brand was founded by a woman! Total girl power. The products are valued at over $400 and they are absolutely obsession grade. There are two exclusive collaborations that you can only find in Box of Style, collaborations that have given jobs and skills to hundreds of women in India. The box is all about EMPOWERMENT – everything is made by women to empower other women to live a life of style! I love that this collection has everything needed to take you from work to the weekend. It’s a fantastic collection and I am just beyond thrilled with it. Ok, so now let’s get into the gorgeous details, shall we??

There are three fashion items – the Tribe Alive Custom Carryall ($238), the Adornemonde Iva Earrings ($62), and the Symbology Scarf ($50).

The Tribe Alive Custom Carryall is the ‘hero’ piece, a chic purse that is the perfect size – not so large that it overwhelms a small frame, but big enough for a last-minute shopping trip to Whole Foods. It’s super versatile too. I find that it is dressy enough for work, yet it also works as my bag for my yoga essentials. I love the juxtaposition of the colorful print with the tan strap and handles. This bag was made by women in India who could have otherwise ended up in the sex trade. Instead, the women are given skills and safe employment by Tribe Alive founder Carly Burson.

A great compliment to the Tribe Alive Custom Carryall is the Symbology Scarf. This is a gorgeous peacock-inspired print in gold and berry that can be worn around the neck, wrist, or tied to the strap of your purse. I love it paired with the Tribe Alive Custom Carryall.  The Symbology company was founded by Marissa Heyl after an inspirational trip to India.

Adornmonde Ivo Earrings

The third fashion item is the adorable multi-tasking Adornmonde Ivo Convertible Earrings. Some boxes have the gold version, some have the silver version. Happily, mine had silver which is my preference. These earrings are a great twist on the classic hoop. You can also wear just the bar for a completely different look. Rachel suggests getting edgy and wearing the bar on one ear and the hoop on the other. Adornmonde is a chic jewelry line with LE pieces owned by Niki Allworth.

There are two beauty items in the Spring 2017 Box of Style:  Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder ($65) and Butter London Piece of Cake Nail Polish ($18).

Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder

Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder

I’m a big fan of the Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder.  Mixed with warm water or your cleanser, this is a wonderful exfoliant that removes dead skin and unclogs pores. It leaves skin soft and glowing. Since it’s a powder, you never have to worry about it expiring either. Victoria Tsai created this line which is inspired by the beauty rituals of Geisha’s.

Butter London Piece of Cake Nail Polish

How perfect is the Butter London Piece of Cake Nail Polish? Pretty pink perfect. This is a fantastic soft, neutral pink that makes for a classy and chic manicure. I could wear this shade every day for a year. I don’t think I ever knew that Butter London was founded by two fierce females, Sasha Muir and Nonie Creme.

An essential for beauty is lots and lots of clean water and The Zoe Report Box of Style has you covered with the last two items:  the BKR Glass and Silicone Water Bottle ($35) and the Stella Artois Chalice ($13).

I love the feminine look of the BKR Glass and Silicone Water Bottle and the silicone outer covering just feels awesome in your hands. The BKR line was created by Tal Winter and Kate Cutler as a response to cheap and definitely not chic plastic water bottles. Hydration is a necessity, so why not do it in style?

The final item, which is actually the ‘bonus’ item in the Spring 2017 Box of Style, is the Stella Artois Chalice. It’s a gorgeous chalice, and every LE chalice that is sold provides an incredible 5 years of clean water for one person in the developing world. Once you pour yourself a drink, be sure to leave your mark at BuyALadyaDrink.com.

I can’t rave enough about The Zoe Report Box of Style. It is a fantastic collection of obsession-worthy items and this collection in particular is amazing because it’s all about girl power.

Two months of Boxycharm fun

During the winter holidays it was just too hard to fit in the fun items I’d been buying. Now that it’s calmed down I want to share two months worth of BOXYCHARM. It’s my favorite subscription and I always get my $21 worth. The main reason that I like to review subscriptions is so that you can get an idea of which one you’d want to buy. These two (December 2016 and January 2017) are prime examples of what Boxycharm offers. Be sure to read this whole review for a surprise….

DECEMBER BOX: “MAKEUP ON POINTE”

Boxycharm from December 2016

Boxycharm from December 2016

December 2016 Boxycharm contents

December 2016 Boxycharm contents

There were 3 versions of the December Boxycharm, below is what I received:

  • OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Napa Valley – $19.90
  • Pure Cosmetics Buff Collection Palette – $50
  • Butter London Nail Polish  in Ruby Murray – $15
  • The Original Mini MakeUp Eraser – $12
  • IBY Beauty Lip Liner in Rosebud –  $14
  • $111 total value

PURE COSMETICS BUFF COLLECTION PALETTE

This reminds me so much of Urban Decay’s Rose Gold palette and the rose gold one from Ulta. Since I have both of those already I’m debating whether to keep this or use it for an anniversary giveaway. It gets great reviews and the colors are beautiful.

What’s not to love about butter LONDON? Fabulous brand and I haven’t had any new polishes from them in a long time. butter LONDON describes this as a deep berry cream.

MAKE UP ERASER MINI

I have the full size of this so I’m thrilled to have the mini especially for travel. The two sides are different textures and feel so good. Since it’s recommended to wash in the machine after each use it’s nice to have a second one. It does a great job especially if I have light makeup on.

OFRA LONG LASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK in NAPA VALLEY  & IBY BEAUTY LIP LINE in ROSEBUD

Ofra Long Lasting Lip in Napa Valley and IBY Beauty Rosebud Lipliner

Ofra Long Lasting Lip in Napa Valley and IBY Beauty Rosebud Lipliner

I haven’t used either of these mainly because the surprise is a giveaway at the end of this post. These aren’t my colors but my experience with both brands has been excellent. The look of the IBY Lipliner reminds me of Starlooks liners.

IBY Beauty Lip Liner in Rosebud

OFRA COSMETICS LONG WEAR LIQUID LIPSTICK in NAPA VALLEY

OFRA Cosmetics Napa Valley Long Wear Liquid Lipstick

OFRA Cosmetics Napa Valley Long Wear Liquid Lipstick

This is a beautiful purple that probably applies as a dark berry shade. Here’s what OFRA has to say about these lipsticks: “Our formula is a matte color formula but if you want to add some shine to your liquid lipstick try our revolutionary Lipgloss Stick. All shades contain antioxidants and Vitamin E while the formula provides a lightweight layer of lasting color to make you look stunning all day. Color will last in a perfect condition up to five hours without eating or drinking. For best results do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after applying.Please note that this is not a lip stain and does not dry completely but remains on your lips for hours!”

JANUARY BOXYCHARM: “AND THE CHARM AWARD GOES TO”

Boxycharm for January 2017

Boxycharm for January 2017

  • Vintage Cosmetics Illuminating Face Highlighter Duo Set –  $35
  • So Susan Fan Brush  –  $18.95
  • Pur Cosmetics Mineral Glow Bronzer  – $25
  • English Laundry Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball –  $25
  • Gorge Amazing Konjac Sponge  –  $18
  • $122 total value

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET - in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET – in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond

Love this! I’m so happy this is in my possession now. I’ve heard some great things about Vintage Cosmetics and received another product from them in an earlier box but it came broken. This highlighting set is perfection. Not too dark, not too light.

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET - in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond plus So Susan Fan Brush

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET – in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond plus So Susan Fan Brush

This has shimmer so I will only be using this at night but it’s not glittery. I love the light pink especially and the chocolate will give some dimension to my face.

SO SUSAN FAN BRUSH This is a great brush for two of the products in this month’s box. It’s a thin brush so it applies the color lightly. So Susan is a cruelty free brand and this brush is made of nylon and taklon. In the giveaway I’ll be giving away a Bellapiere fan brush since I was so excited about the So Susan and Highlighter that I used it instantly.

PUR MINERAL GLOW BRONZER

Pur Mineral Glow Bronzer

Pur Mineral Glow Bronzer

It’s a pleasure to get a product from PUR, a brand I use often. This is a medium toned golden bronzer that’s infused with anti-oxidants. It’s the kind of bronzer than can be used year round. Since I don’t wear bronzer very often this is also going to be part of the giveaway.

GORGE, AMAZING KONJAC SPONGE

GORGE Amazing Konjac Sponge

GORGE Amazing Konjac Sponge

It’s always great to have a new Konjac Sponge since it’s an item you actually either use up or toss after a few months. It’s an exfoliating sponge that is deep cleansing and pH blanced. You can use it on face and body. I like keeping one in the shower especially for my body.

ENGLISH LAUNDRY, POUR FEMME DELUXE ROLLER BALL

English Laundry, Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball

English Laundry, Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball

If you are a regular reader of Beauty Info Zone then you know I don’t wear perfume. Sometimes I’m tempted but I’m happy with certain fragranced body oils and use those instead. Therefore this is part of the giveaway. It’s not only beautiful but English Laundry says it’s a classic scent that’s sophisticated while smelling fresh.  “Inspired by classic country gardens, English Laundry’s charming blend perfectly melds top notes of rose geranium with a backdrop of woody spicy and musky notes. Bright, enticing and elegant. Signature opens with quince, complimented by white chocolate and jasmine petals at the heart. For a purely peaceful scent, notes of orris roots, powdery musk and sensual woods have been composed at the base.

I like this subscription service so much that I recently paid up front for 6 months. That saved me $10 overall. I’m sure I’ll have 6 more months of fun before I have to make another decision. So what’s your opinion of these two Boxycharm sub boxes?  —  Marcia
