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)!

  • Currently wishing I could smudge away this cold... if only it worked like that! 
Instead, I’ll be sipping hot tea and popping Vitamin C, but if you’re looking for a good read on “smudging” check out my latest blog post (link in bio) for some enlightenment on the subject.

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!
