I wasn’t really thrilled with this box. Every item was nice, but theyre not thing things I will really use. I will definitely try the expensive cream, but I won’t get too attached since it is so expensive. Most of this will probably be gifted to friends, but I guess that’s not so bad?

Can’t wait to see what is in store for April! Bring it on Glossybox!

Monthly Sub Monday- Wantable Jewelry Box

*This was purchased by me, for my own enjoyment. My opinion is my own.*

I am seriously loving the Wantable jewelry subscription box. They are hitting it out of the park lately. This months box blew my socks off, and you will see why.

I got a ring, a pair of earrings, and 2 necklaces. Everything is in gold, and I love it all.

LEXIA EARRINGS IN GOLDwsalxgroqm9eyznjwdhk 11084475_398032820376251_835837264_n
Aren’t these gorgeous? The lacy design, the dangle. They are a bold earring, without being too large. I love them! I have worn them a few times, with the necklace I am about to show you.


qkeftls3o0aargruxbmv11086990_398032937042906_670091527_nThis necklace has everything. Sparkles from the beadwork to give it a bit of a delicate feel. The polished stone gives it a natural feel. The chains hanging down give it a bit of an edge. It is very long, (I had to shorten the chain to make it work on my mannequin.) Here is a bit of closer up look of the beadwork.11096836_398032887042911_2034480474_nI love it! I used to make jewelry, so I know the time it took to hand bead and wire this baby together. I am totally impressed and excited to keep this in my jewelry collection.

JILLIAN RING GOLD (size 7) lk2z0go85x4w6petdng6This ring is super cute. The stone is probably glass, but still has a natural feel to it. The sizing says it is a 7, but it doesn’t fit any of my fingers exactly right.11117481_398032767042923_628914484_nIt’s a very delicate, and sweet little ring. It looks very nice with the other pieces I got.

DOLLY NECKLACE IN GOLDmfnetws2edfvphtljvwwI love the combination of the gold beads and the stone in this one. It is fun!


11125606_398032967042903_1615006504_nThe little stones remind me a bit of jade. They’re polished and lay so nicely on the neck. This one is a bit on the shorter side, (maybe 18 inches?) but it is so adorable and looks great in anything from a black tee to a dress.


I am REALLY enjoying the Wantable jewelry boxes. Everyone I have gotten has been better than the last. I highly recommend this box if you want good quality costume jewelry, at a very reasonable monthly rate!

This is my personal referral code. If you want to sign up, feel free to use it and I will recieve a $10 credit.

Acure Argan Stem Cell + Chorella Growth Factor Night Cream


*this sample was sent to me for review. My opinion is my own.”

The title of this one is quite the mouthful huh? I will just call it night cream.

006-2T“Nature’s nocturnal miracle! Age-fighting Argan Stem Cells, shown to help the skin’s natural repair process, firm and moisturize while 2% Chlorella Growth Factor fortifies collagen and elastin fibers.

Organic Curoxidant™ Blend [(Organic Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Berry, Organic Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry), Organic Rosa Canina (Rosehips), Organic Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Organic Calendula Officinalis (Calendula), Organic Matricaria Recutita (Chamomile), Fair Trade Organic Aspalanthus Linearis (Rooibos)], Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot Kernel) Oil, Persea Americana (Avocado) Oil, Vegetable Glycerine, Prunus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate (Vegetable Derived), Cetyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Glucose (Sugar), Glucose Oxidase & Lactoperoxidase (Milk & Sugar Enzymes), Organic Chlorella Pyrenoidosa (Chlorella Growth Factor), Organic Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Hypericum Perforatum (St Johnswort) Oil, Marrubium Vulgare (White Horehound) Stem Cell Culture, Echinacea Stem Cell Culture, Fermented Resveratrol Extract (Probiotic), Organic Argan Oil, CoQ10, Olive Leaf Extract, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Stem Cell Culture, Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender) (Essential) Oil, Citrus Limonium (Lemon) Oil, Xanthan Gum.

This cream is no joke. It is thick, rich and extremely emollient. I only used a little bit and it felt pretty heavy on my face. I put it on before bedtime, and woke up very greasy feeling. I think it might be because of the change in weather. I have to switch moisturizers every summer because everything I use simply melts off in the heat and humidity.

I think this cream would work best in the winter months when the heat is blaring and your skin is extra dry. People with natually dry skin would also greatly benefit from this.
