October Rocksbox Unboxing and Review

Hi everyone,

I recently decided, because it’s getting towards the end of the year, to try out a few new subscription boxes. And today I’m going to be unboxing and reviewing the first one that I received, the October Rocksbox. Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription service that sends you 3 pieces, each month with the option to buy and you can swap out any/all of your jewelry before they send your box out. It’s a really good concept and I don’t know why it took me so long to subscribe to them.

JB1

When you open the box you’re met with a little card that says ‘but first, jewelry’ and has info about your set for the month. Under that is a welcome card with info about the brand and under that is a jewelry care card.

JB2

Under the paperwork is polka dot tissue paper, which is wrapped around the jewelry and held together with an ‘enjoy’ sticker.

JB3

Each piece of jewelry comes in it’s own soft drawstring bag and I love that, great for storage and protection.

JB4

So my first piece of jewelry is a pair of gorgeous Kendra Scott Harrison Drop Earrings in Rose Gold and Rose Gold Druzy. These have a great sparkle and are so pretty when the light hits them.

JB5

Next up we have a Sophie Harper x Sterling Silver Double Layer Disc Necklace. I love necklaces like this. The simplicity, the detail and the sparkle is perfect.

JB6

And the last piece in this set is the Ava Rose Aspen Bracelet in Gold and Lapis. I don’t wear a lot of bracelets like this but I really liked the look of it on the website and I’m glad I chose it. The pop of color and the simplicity is great.

JB7

I didn’t include any pictures of me wearing the jewelry because I didn’t want to put them all on just to take pictures so when I wear them in real life situations I’ll post pictures on my Instagram.

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I’m really impressed with Rocksbox and I recommend.

Until next time, enjoy your jewelry and you can never subscribe to too many boxes :).

June Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my June favorites. I have quite a few things I loved this month, and a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my June Sephora Play Box and I will link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first Sephora Play favorite is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. I mentioned that I had never used a lip sleeping mask, so I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I really like this one. You put this on before you go to bed and when you wake up you remove the remaining product and you’re left with really smooth and moisturized lips. This also smells really good and I definitely recommend it.

JUSP5

Next we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I’ve been using this primer off and on for a while now and it’s one that I really like. It has marine plant extracts, turmeric and hyaluronic acid which helps to really wake up your skin and it gives you a great base to work with. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea line has a ton of great products and this is a primer that I always recommend.

JUSP3

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream. I’ve been slowly incorporating this into my skincare routine and I’m really liking it. It’s really light, sinks into the skin pretty quickly and I feel very moisturized.

JUSP4

Moving on, I have a jewelry favorite and it’s these earrings. I did a whole post about them and I’ll link that down below. But basically they’re from Earfleek and I like them a lot. They’re simple but I think they add the perfect little bit to a look.

EF5

Next I have a racing favorite and it’s the 24 Hours of Le Mans. One of the biggest races of the year, it takes place at the Circuit de le Sarthe, Le Mans, France and this was the 87th running. I watched most of it, like I try to every year, and it was very exciting and there was a lot going on like in any endurance race and then there were some not so great moments. But I would one thousand percent recommend watching it if you never have.

My last kind of random favorite is a TV show, Good Omens on Amazon Prime. I had been seeing ads for Good Omens everywhere and it looked kind of interesting so I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did because it’s brilliant and I absolutely loved it. I think the casting was absolutely perfect and I love the humor that it brings. The only thing that I didn’t like is that’s it’s only six episodes because I wanted more, but being based off of a book, I understand. And now I’m going to read the book because I’m interested to see how it translated and because the book has great reviews. I absolutely, 10/10 recommend it.

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is the song Holy Mountain by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. This song came out of nowhere, it popped up randomly on my Spotify and I’m happy I did it. This was my first Noel Gallagher experience and because I liked this one so much I’ve been having a little look through his music and finding songs I quite like. The song Rattling Rose from his new album Black Star Dancing is a great listen.

My second music favorite is The Doobie Brothers Live from the Beacon Theater. This concert was recorded in November of 2018, the first time in 25 years they had played there and this concert is special because they played their albums Toulouse Street and The Captain and Me. PBS showed a handful of the concert recently and it was great. I know The Captain and Me pretty well but I only knew a couple songs from Toulouse Street so it’s been great to hear some of these songs for the first time. I did preorder the 2CD set and the Blu-ray, the 2CD, DVD and 2CD + DVD is being released on June 28th and the Blu-ray on July 12th. So I’m really excited to watch and listen to the full concert and I highly recommend giving it a watch/listen.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your June favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great June :).

Earfleek Review

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I’m going to be continuing my ‘trying new subscription boxes/services in 2019’ series. This time it’s Earfleek. Earfleek is an earring subscription and each month you get a new pair of earrings. There are two tiers which you can choose from, the first is the normal subscription and it’s $3.49 a month and the second is Premiere which is $9.93 a month but you get free shipping with both. They both have the same four categories you can pick from, Silly & Fun, Minimalist But Groovy, Boho Babe and I Don’t Give A Hoot (which is a mix of all three). With the premiere tier they say you get earrings that have more pop, color and personality but no matter what the earrings are nickel free. I wanted to try this out because I had heard about it and was half interested, because I love a good pair of earrings, and half skeptical of what the quality would be because of the price.

So when I signed up I did the normal subscription and chose I Don’t Give A Hoot because I liked the chance to try everything. It was delivered quickly and I quite like the packaging. It comes in a little envelope that is pop art style. This one has blue polka dots and says “Fashion is more art than art is” – Andy Warhol.

EF2

When you open the envelope you pull out a card that is folded in half and has the earrings sitting in it. I think this is a smart thing to do because this card in particular has a bunch of contact information for the brand on it but because it’s pretty sturdy cardstock and the earrings are wrapped in a little sheet of bubble wrap, it eliminates the need for any crazy packaging. It can just be little and cute which totally matches the brand.

EF3

When you take the earrings out of the bubble wrap they’re in a little plastic resealable pouch and the ends of the earrings are stuck in a little piece of rubber so they don’t move around.

EF4

Now, the earrings themselves I absolutely love. They’re rose gold stick style earrings and they’re about an inch and a half long. I love how simple they are but they also bring a little pop to a look without being over the top. I have worn these and they’re really light, which I appreciate. And quality wise they feel solid.

EF5

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I enjoyed my Earfleek experience and I would do it again.

Until next time, you can never have too many pairs of earrings and what subscription box should I try next? 🙂

December favorites/2017 wrap up

Hi everyone,

Today, as we are in the last couple days of December and of 2017, I thought it would be the perfect day to do my December favorites and wrap up this year. So, starting with beauty and I have a couple of favorites from my December Glam Bag, if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it below, and the first is the bag itself. It’s silver with a band of silver sparkles around the top and the inside as well as the zipper is aqua and I love it. Not only is it wintery, but it’s so my colors.

DF13

My next Glam Bag favorite is the Essence Cosmetics I Love Crazy Volume Mascara in Deep Black. I’ve worn this a couple of times and I really like it. It does give my lashes volume and thickness.

DGB3

And my last Glam Bag favorite is the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Legendary. I’ve always liked the Smashbox lipsticks and this one is no different. It’s a gorgeous red, it’s long lasting and it doesn’t dry out your lips like some red lipsticks can do. I definitely recommend it.

DGB6

I want to make a note quickly and say that I haven’t yet had a chance to try out the Purlisse sheet masks, but I will let you know what I think once I have.

Next up I’m going to talk about a few of the things that I got for Christmas and for that I’ll start with my stocking. The first thing I pulled out of my stocking was a set of four gold rings from H&M. I love rings and these are the perfect simple accessory.

DF1

The next thing was a full sized Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar 24 hour moisture Ultra Shea body cream. This is one of my favorite scents from Bath and Body Works and probably my favorite lotion.

DF2

The rest of my stocking was full of a loofa, some toiletries (toothpaste, makeup wipes, etc) and candy.

Moving on to some of my presents, there are a few that I wanted to mention and the first is a curling iron. I was in desperate need of a medium sized curling iron, I have one with a small barrel and one with a really big barrel, but I was lacking some middle ground so this is perfect. It’s a Conair Instant Heat curling iron with a 1 1/4 barrel. I’ve always liked  Conair because I have a lot of hair and it’s thick and these get really hot and create nice curls.

DF3

Next up is one of my favorite gifts I received and it’s the Too Faced Best Year Ever collection. You guys know how much I love Too Faced and I’m so in love with this. It comes in a little zip up case that is gold with pink stripes on the outside and it says “I have way more makeup at home” on the front.

DF4

When you open it you see black and white stripes and the three palettes are stacked on one another and there is a mini Better Than Sex mascara on the top. It also comes with a little booklet that has four different looks and how to create them.

DF5

Like I said, there’s three palettes and they are I Believe in Pink, Natural Beauty and Super Fun Night.

DF6

I Believe in Pink has six eyeshadows ranging from super light pink to purple with a blush in the shade Pink Poinsettia. I have over the last three days worn at least one color from each palette and these shadows are very pigmented and look fantastic on.

DF7

Natural Beauty has six eyeshadows in the gold and brown shades and a bronzer in Warm My Heart.

DF8

And Super Fun Night has six eyeshadows in a mix of different colors and a highlighter in Dashing Through The Glow.

DF9

I will be doing a more in depth post on the Best Year Ever in the new year, so look out for that.

And the last beauty related thing is actually a sample that I got with the Too Faced collection. It was a small bottle of the Atelier Mandarine Glaciale perfume. I’m going to be honest with you guys, the second I smelled it I was in love. It has mandarin, ginger and vetiver and is a really fresh and warming scent. It also reminds me of something from when I younger, but I can’t remember what it is. I did order a full size bottle of this and it is on the pricier side but Sephora offers it in at least two sets that I’ve seen that have other Atelier scents.

I have a couple of clothing favorites, this Christmas was very sports heavy for my family and none of us were mad about it. When it comes to college football USC is my team and I was lacking in things to wear on game day but now that’s not the case. First up is a racerback ombre tank top. Ignore the wrinkles, I had it folded. But I love a tank top and can’t wait to wear this.

DF10

Next we have a white V-neck t-shirt that says Fight On! which is the name of the USC fight song. What I like about this shirt is it’s incredibly soft and it’s slightly on the baggy side, not overly but I tried it on and it looks great tucked into jeans.

DF11

And finally we have a black and gray hoodie. I don’t think I’ve taken this off since I got it, it’s fleece lined on the inside and it does a great job keeping me warm.

DF12

USC plays Ohio State tomorrow in the Cotton Bowl and I think it’s going to be a great game. Go Trojans!

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is the Ed Sheeran song Perfect. Everyone has been talking about this song recently and with good reason, it’s fantastic. If you somehow haven’t heard it yet, go and listen to it.

The last two are from Robbie Williams Under The Radar Vol. 2 album, which came out recently and my two favorites from this album are Bambi and 9 To 5. Bambi is one of my favorite songs of 2017, it’s a fun and very Robbie Williams. And I love the fact that he covered 9 to 5, if you like the original version of the song then you’ll like this one.

That about wraps it up for this post and I want to take a minute and thank you guys for reading, liking and commenting this year. 2017 was a crazy year and I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring.

Until next time, I hope you all had a great December and 2017 and I appreciate every one of you :).
