The Box

The Inside Box

First Glance

RUFFIAN Nail Laquer in Hedge Fund- $10.00
This color is really pretty, I will try it on my nails when I get my solar nails taken off. It's a sparkly deep green from the looks of it. Right off the bat, you have already earned money with just this nail polish with this subscription only being $10.00!

Evologie Stay Clear Cream- $20.67 (1/3 of retail price of 1 oz.)
This is a pimple cream which is supposed to increase your healing power. Natural ingredients to clear skin. Since I am on a dermatologist regime for my skin, I won't be trying this for a while but I am holding onto it.

Benefit Fakeup- $3.43 (1/7 price of the 35 Net wt.)
I tried this stuff on two of my blemishes and it was awesome, it blended so well with my light skin and did not cake or feel greasy on top of my foundation and powder! It's really moisturizing.

POP Beauty Aqua Lacquer in Flowering Fuschia- $14.00
I have worn this stuff twice since getting it, it's soft and slick as well as a nice pink shade. Love it! I am always looking for new lip stuff since I usually wear lipstick.

Chapstick Hydration Lock in Vanilla Creme- $2.99 or 2/$5.00
I love lip balm and the Chapstick brand! This stuff feels great under gloss and over lipstick. I use chapstick several times a day so this will be used often :) Bonus: $1.00 off coupon. So you could score two of these babies for $4.00 at Walgreens right now.

Total Box Value: 51.09!!

I really really loved this box and I am so glad I re-signed up for it this past October for my birthday like I promised myself.

My 1st Rocks Box Delivery + FREE FIRST BOX CODE!

Last night I got my first RocksBox delivery! You can read all their juicy subscription details here

*Tonight 10/25/2013* is the LAST day to sign up for your FREE BOX! No strings attached! Get a curated box sent to you with some gorgeous pieces, keep what you want or send it all back as many time as you want too! Use my link here and do NOT miss out. Pick a subscription plan and get your first month free.

This is the MOST gorgeous and adorable box I have ever seen. I wonder if they'd let me just keep the box ;)

My three pieces of jewelry.

Prices of the jewelry at retail price and then with your %20 discount.

Lucas Jack Ring- Retail: $51.00 Discount: $40.80
I like this ring but it was not my size and only fit on my pinky. It seemed a bit plastic-like too.

Loren Hope Bracelet- Retail: $65.00 Discount: $52.00
I could not for my LIFE figure out how to get this thing on, so I am sending it back. It is very pretty and great quality though.

Robyn Rhodes Necklace- Retail: $98.00 Discount: $78.40
This was my FAVORITE part of this box, I forgot to take a photo of it on. They are sparkly and beautiful stones on a small gold chain with a clasp. It was a little too short(close to my throat) for my taste. I wish it was longer and a bit cheaper and I would definitely add this to my collection.

Retail Total: $214.00 worth of designer jewelry and with the discount it would all be $171.20.

Although I am not keeping any of these, I am sending it  back with the prepaid label and package to get my next set ASAP and see what else they pick for me. I am in need of some new pieces badly!

Splendies October 2013 Underwear Subscription

The SubscriptionSplendies! A package of three pairs of underwear in your size. Original, Cute, Different and easy for you to skip going panties shopping!
Prices: $8.00 with code SPLENDIES at checkout for you first month and $12.00 for every month from the last day you ordered. ALWAYS FREE SHIPPING. $7 for Canadians.
Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, & Extra Large!

Splendies arrives via USPS and fits right in my mailbox :)

Wrapped in pink tissue paper.

I ordered the larges and received 3 panties. There is a no-thong option for $2 more dollars because usually the subscription comes with at least one thong, which I surprisingly did not get.

I am not too fond of the pink stripes but the style of boy-shorts are great, which I love for bedtime and sleeping! The red ones are soft and have a touch of black lace, alas, they seem of good quality. The black ones are "panty-line" free, I have some JUST like these from Victoria's Secret that are some of my FAVORITES! These are seriously the equivalent to the quality so I am happy to have another pair!

I think I might keep this subscription for a while because I liked these and they fit well, I also want to see what else they have to offer. Go on over to Splendies and pick up for you three pairs for just $8 today! Don't forget to use the code above!

Bulu Box October 2013 + Free First Box!

I continually sign up for this box! I just can't get enough of it, even though this month kind of slacked a bit. I think I would fall absolutely in love with them if they took the reviews we did on our boxes(points that we can use for money towards their store purchases) and customized our own a little more personally. Once again Bulu Box is $10/month and I keep re-subscribing for 3 months at a time with %50 off codes that come around sometimes.(Usually near the end of my subscription I get an email). This box is really only about $60 a year with a good deal and come with 4-6 supplements while offering a regular version and a weight loss version!

Vermont Snacks Subscription Box

I decided to go out on a limb and try out a new snack box. Vermont Snacks caught my eye. "Vermont's Most Delicious Snacks" just sounded good to me. Something about Vermont... I have just always wanted to live there and I love the North.

Price of Box: $19.00/Month(shipping included)
What's In It: 4-6 delicious Vermont Snacks
Duration of Subscription: 1 month recurring subscription

I love the packaging, super cute!

Packing List

YOLO! Popcorn- $1.26

Total Box Value: $7.14

I have not cancelled this box, although I was not highly impressed with the snacks inside. The value of the products were less than HALF of what I paid for the box which is HIGHLY upsetting. They are new and just starting off so I will give them a little leeway. I am not a big fan of popcorn or applesauce but I plan to give this box one more month to impress me, otherwise I will be cancelling. (It seems like you have to personally contact to cancel because once you sign up there really is no account log-in to keep track of everything, which is kind of complicated when you are a box addicts ha!)
