It’s officially summer and I’m so excited to peel off the extra layers of clothes and pile on the extra layers of jewelry!  I’ve just recently signed up for a Rocksbox subscription and I’m completely obsessed!  I love layering some of my old pieces in with the new ones that I get with my subscription without having to spend an arm and a leg to get the look that I want.  I’m also loving the fact that I can test them out before I commit to purchasing them.  Usually, when picking out a piece of jewelry that is over $40, I have to justify whether I will really wear it.  Being able to test drive these designer gems allows me to indulge in my current fashion cravings without feeling guilty and the best part is if I find myself constantly reaching for a piece, I have the option to purchase it and know that I made a good decision, if not, I simply ship them back.

In case you aren’t familiar with Rocksbox, let me fill you in.  Rocksbox is an amazing company that allows you to choose jewelry pieces from different designers like Gorjana, Slate, Jenny Bird, House of Harlow, and more.  After you have signed up and made your wish list, you get your very own personal stylist that sends you pieces of your liking to try before you buy!  I’m always checking out different jewelry designers but I’m a little hesitant to purchase anything on the internet because I never know how it will fit me or what it will look like in person.  When I found out about Rocksbox, I knew that their subscription service would be perfect for me for these very reasons and a few more, let me further explain…

I’ve always been a fan of accessories, jewelry being No. 1 and I also have this thing with mail.  My husband kind of makes fun of me because I like to be the first one to check the mail. It’s become a little competitive over the years on who gets to check it first and I can honestly tell you that there have been races to the mailbox involved (not even joking).  To me I think of mail like your birthday or Christmas, you never know what goodies are in store like a new magazine, something you ordered and forgot about, or in this case a beautifully stylized box of jewelry!  

At first, I will say I was a bit skeptical of the whole thing.  I mean who would just let you try out designer jewelry without having to purchase it?  That sounds crazy, right?  But it’s not and they do!  When I decided to sign up I had to fill out my wishlist and it must have taken over an hour because I wanted it all, so I can only imagine how hard it was for my stylist to pick the right pieces to send in my first delivery.  Let’s just say I made them work hard for the money on this one…

Once the package arrived, I ripped it open to find a beautifully wrapped box that was personalized with my name and everything!  They really outdo themselves over there and the jewelry, by the way, does not show an inch of wear or tear so I’m assuming everything I receive is a fresh new batch.  

This month I received a necklace from House of Harlow, a set of earrings from Sophie Harper, and another layering necklace from Gorjana which you can see in the photos I’ve provided below. I was so excited to try out the new pieces with different outfits, then I found myself making new outfits specifically for them because I couldn’t wait to show them off and it was all downhill from there!   Now I just need to remind myself that I’m going to need to pay bills and not spend my entire paycheck on jewelry (I mean who needs electricity and water right? jk, jk).

Since I’ve gotten my first Rocksbox subscription, I’ve gotten so many compliments on my jewelry and my outfits because they are now officially complete. I do however find myself asking how I did not know about this sooner and furthermore, why didn’t anyone tell me about this magical unicorn of a subscription?  None the less I found out, got it, and now I’m happy and content here sharing it with you! 

If this all sounds too good to be true, it’s about to get even better!  My friends at Rocksbox are offering an exclusive deal for my readers, when you sign up you’ll get your first months subscription for free, yeah I said it FREE!  Normally the monthly subscription is $21 which is automatically entered as credit towards your jewelry purchase for that month.  With your first month for free and a $21 credit, it’s like your getting paid to shop plus you get to wear cute jewelry for a month without having to buy it (WINNING)!

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
