In My Mailbox Today: October 2011 Jewelmint Pick and Birchbox

Happy Friday, girlies <3 I love the feeling of possibilities the coming weekend brings!  As if Friday isn't inherently fab enough, I came home to all the dishwashing finished by the husband (SCORE!), and I was also met with the following selections:
First off, the Jewelmint piece I chose this month is the Desert Rose Necklace.  It's beautiful mesh (like the Love that Binds bracelet, which I had to return because its clasp broke :*( sad) with pave rhinestones and a pink (resin?) stone on both ends.  It is lariat-style so you can kind of tie it on in a few configurations.  After the fact I saw in my Jewelmint "Showroom" that it's also the piece that supports BCA (breast cancer awareness) this month!  In honor of Jewelmint's 1-year anniversary they also sent out a $5 coupon code (though they are always giving out $5 coupon codes), so I say if you picked out some other piece for your monthly subscription you ought to snap up this one as well for charity and because it's beautiful, hefty, and appears expensive (what you expect, but don't always get, from Jewelmint pieces).

In my October Birchbox, I got amika Obliphica hair treatment (which does smell lovely and will be the perfect replacement for my third Ojon Restorative hair serum sample when it runs out), Anastasia Beverly Hills Hydrafull Gloss in Bellini (I am so thrilled I got this after seeing Bloomin' Beauty's Danielle got it and it looks PERFECT on her!), Clark's Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask (I love trying masks and have enjoyed every one from a Birchbox so far -- this one is "The solution to dull, congested skin.  This white clay mask detoxifies pores, conquers blemishes, and even calms irritations." Just what I need right now!  Though the $72 cost of the full-size is likely to deter me from purchasing it), Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Under Makeup Primer in Bronze (sounds like the sample of Too Faced Primed and Poreless in Bronze I got earlier this year... not likely to see much use by me, TBH), and The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo (which is pretty funny because my wardrobe is completely vegan, so no wool in sight!).

I'm pretty psyched about all these treats! What a great month for Jewelmint (I had a really tough time choosing my piece as I also liked a bunch of others... I think I'll share in the next post <3), and a wonderful Birchbox as well!


  1. Ahhh! *Birchbox Twins* Thanks for the shoutout dear, *hugs* I am SO glad you got the gloss too! It's a lovely shade for sure. Too bad your bracelet broke, it looks really pretty!

  2. Haha, twins <3 I think it's the first time I've received *exactly* the same Birchbox as somebody else! I'm glad we got a good one!

  3. Your Birchbox goodies sound really good! Love the necklace pretty!

  4. That necklace is really nice! Seems like everyone got different things this month on Birchbox. Now I'm jealous I didn't get that gloss...haha

  5. Thanks, Harshleen and Liz, if it's any consolation, I've had a few meh Birchboxes so far... luck of the draw!


I love comments <3
