May 2014 Your Bijoux Box - Review and Unboxing

Yay!!! My second monthly subsription box has arrived - and this time it is jewellery!!!



There is so many jewellery and accessory boxes out there to pick from - it was hard to decide which ones I wanted to try! (watch for a future post on all the types of these boxes)
I decided on Your Bijoux Box because it looked like it sent out a really great mix of statement pieces and everyday pieces! Also you will get 2-3 pieces every month with a $70 value but you do not get the option to customize - everyone gets the same box!

Your Bijoux Box is $35 a month + $6 shipping (with the exchange rate I paid $45.87 Canadian) 
You can also save a little money if you sign up for 3 months it is $99, 6 months is $195, and 12 months is $380.
Also - you can cancel your supscription before the 1st of the month, and there is not wait list to re-subscribe. If you want to test it out you can sign up for a 1 month gift so they don't keep charging you if you forget to cancel! 

Anyways - to the box! ( i have no photo of the cute little blue box with a little quote inside because when i picked it up from my mail box it was half soggy - eww but it didn't effect the contents inside so i'm not to worried about it!)

Each item is sent in a little black bag annnnnd.... here is what I got:
The XOXO Bracelet and Necklace Set & The Corsica Confetti Collar

May 2014 Ipsy Glam Bag - Review and Unboxing!

Okay - so this is what I have been waiting for!! Ipsy is the reason i started looking in to monthly subscription boxes! My new work partner told me about it and I signed about a month ago and have been waiting (im)patiently for my first bag to arrive!!! 



Ipsy was created by Michelle Phan, a notable makeup youtuber who created this business. Every month you receive 4-5 make-up/beauty sample products (if you are lucky some come full size too!). I was really excited to try it but was slightly disappointed that they put me on a "wait-list" - as soon as a friend of mine signed up I was instantly off this wait-list. I'm not a huge fan of this but i was excited about the idea and would have waited!! 
Ipsy is $10 per month (or $110 a year) + shipping to Canada (with the exchange rate right now i paid $16.85 Canadian)

So Ipsy comes each month in a little makeup bag (from the reviews I have read some people don't like all of the bags) but this little bag is super cute!! The May 2014 Glam Bag is all about "Fresh Picks". First look at my bag and I got a sunscreen, face mask, moisturizer, eyeshadow and a makeup brush.
