Monthly subscription boxes are super trendy right now. There are boxes for beauty products, food, clothing and everything in between. I have been known to subscribe to a few myself, and I have to say- I love them!
I recently got the opportunity to try out Bezel Box, a new monthly subscription box full of boutique jewelry.
Let me just say-I love the packaging! It comes in a black box with pink polka dots on the sides and a big pink ribbon around it. All the pieces are individually wrapped in tissue paper and cushioned with crinkle cut paper shreds.
As for the jewelry I received, I really like the silver heart bracelet, it’s simple and delicate. The black and gold dangle earrings are great. I also really like the red and gold stretchy ring, it’s perfect for the upcoming holidays. The blue and gold set is also pretty, but not exactly my taste. I prefer a bold earring over a bold necklace, but I know that it’s something a lot of people would like. Statement necklaces like that have been a big trend for a while now.
They have 2 options for the subscriptions. The normal Bezel Box is $29.97 + $5.70 for shipping and includes 4-5 pieces of jewelry. The Bezel Box Mini is $19.97, ships for free and contains 2 pieces of jewelry. All the jewelry in the boxes is exclusive- you can only get them if you subscribe to the box! They do have other gorgeous pieces of jewelry for sale individually on their site at pretty reasonable prices. They ship to the US and Canada. (Prices for Canada are slightly higher)
If you like boutique jewelry and like to have lots of options, this would be a great subscription for you to check out! If you want to get the November box, you have until the end of October to sign up. Also don’t forget- the holidays are coming soon- Bezel Box would make a great gift!
Full disclosure: I was sent the September Bezel Box at no charge for reviewing purposes.
Ah, deodorant. The bane of every newly natural girl’s existence. How many deodorants have you bought that worked for a day or two and then after that had you smelling like a perfumed monkey butt? Or a rose that’s been rubbed in the armpits of a rock star that hasn’t showered in a week? Yeah, you know what I’m talking about.
I may have just found a great solution for you. Bubble and Bee Organic Pit Putty Cream.
Last week Stephanie from Bubble and Bee Organic contacted me and asked if I would like to take a test drive of their Pit Putty cream and of course I said YES! I chose to try the Orange Vanilla scent.
Can I just say- YUM! Oh my gosh, this stuff smells SO good! Creamsicle, anyone? Seriously, this has to be one of my favorite scents ever. It’s fresh and comforting and dries down to a nice orange-y, vanilla, almost musky type scent on my skin. It’s easy to apply. Just a little bit rubbed into your armpit and you’re good to go. It’s really creamy, super smooth and makes my pits feel silky soft.
It works well, too. The first day I used it, it lasted all day long. And I checked. And checked. And checked. I must have looked ridiculous sniffing my pits all day. Luckily I was at home all day with no one around to see! The second day, I did some really sweaty yoga and had to freshen up with a spray afterwards. I’ve been using this product for a week and I think it’s great! It has been pretty warm and muggy around here lately, so I did have to freshen up with a spray deodorant a few times after about 8-9 hours. If it hadn’t been so warm I think I could have gone all day without a spray. The last couple days I just ended up layering the cream and then a spray right when I got out of the shower, just because I find that combination to be especially effective for my body chemistry.
Everybody’s chemistry is different, so what works for me may not work for you. But Bubble and Bee has got you covered with their deodorant guarantee. If the first deodorant you buy doesn’t work for you, they will work with you to find one that does, figuring out which application method you like and sending you deodorant with a different blend of essential oils. You just pay the shipping. Click here to read about how the guarantee works. I think this is awesome! I haven’t seen any other company offer a guarantee like that.
If you are looking for a deodorant I recommend giving Bubble and Bee Organic a try. What have you got to lose? You may end up with the best smelling pits on the block.
Thanks to Stephanie, one of you will be able to test out some deodorant or whatever other Bubble and Bee product you would like to try. She has provided me with the opportunity to give out a $20 gift certificate! You have a week to get your entries in.
So, who is feeling lucky?

Full Disclosure: I received the Orange Vanilla Pit Putty cream at no charge.
A couple months ago I started seeing these commercials on TV where a bunch of happy, smiling people were opening boxes with green polka dots on them and pulling out clothes, smiling in front of the mirror, etc. Have you seen them? Well, they are commercials for thredUP, an online consignment shop for women’s and children’s clothing where you can save up to 80% off retail prices on like new clothing. I kept seeing them over and over, so I decided to go check out the website.
When I got there, I signed up and was immediately sent an email with a code for 20% off my first order. Sweet! I looked around a little bit. I wasn’t sure I wanted to order anything, I have a hard time ordering clothes online, I never know what size to get and I don’t want to have to send things back and all that malarkey. Yeah, I said malarkey-what?
Later on I was clearing out my email and realized my coupon code was going to expire. Like that day. So I went to the site and decided I was going to buy something. I knew I couldn’t buy pants, so I didn’t even look at them, but shirts? I figured I could do pretty ok with picking out a few shirts and have some of them fit.
They have SO MANY CLOTHES! Luckily you can sort by size, brand, etc. so you can narrow it down. I ended up getting 12 shirts for about $60! Amazing! That was after my 20% off and all orders over $50 get free shipping. That works out to about $5 a shirt- not too shabby!
Shipping was fast, I had my clothes within a few days and… most of them fit! One of the shirts, well, I guess I should have known better. It was an Abercrombie shirt. I can get the shirt on, but it has a built in bra, which I didn’t know about until I got it, and apparently it’s made for a 1/2 an A cup. The girls do NOT fit in that! Which makes me sad, because it’s a really cute shirt. One other shirt is pretty, but it’s a little tight on the girls and a little too big everywhere else. I could return it, but what’s the point? I would have to pay almost as much for return shipping as I did for the shirts- not worth it. I will probably just give them away and be happy that I got 10 shirts that I like and can wear for $60.
You can also send them your clothes and they will pay you for them. They have to be in new or like new condition, clean and smell fresh. You get more money if they still have the tags on them. You just order a Clean Out Bag, fill it up and send it back, with free shipping. They inspect it and pay you for what they accept. Things they don’t accept, they put into their 100% Re-use Program where it is either donated or recycled.
I’m very happy with my purchase and I will go back in the future.
In the interest of full disclosure, if you click through the links in this post and buy something, I will get a credit to spend on more clothes. So, if you do- Thanks!! Oh- and you will get a $10 credit, too.
So thredUP? Yes. Go. Now.
Buy yourself something nice. You deserve it!
Want to see some of the other shirts I bought? Just click on any link in this post.
