A few Amazon Favourites

I cannot believe how much cute stuff I have been finding on Amazon lately! I think I will ty to do a monthly post rounding up all of my favourite finds. I have had a few people ask me about my experiences shopping on Amazon and honestly, about 90% have been great. I always read the reviews as far as quality and sizing and make a decision based off of those. Quite often it will give a ship date 3 or 4 weeks down the road but I usually receive everything within a couple weeks if not sooner 🙂

My Rocksbox Jewelry Membership

I am a girl who LOVES her accessories.  When I was younger my mom would always question if I left the house without earrings- like I was forgetting my pants or some other vital part of my clothing LOL! To this day I still don’t feel dressed without my jewelry.  This is why I was so excited when Rocksbox reached out to see if I would like to try their service.

IMG_0596Rocksbox

If you haven’t heard of this company before, Rocksbox is a jewelry membership service featuring top designers such as Kate Spade, Kendra Scott and Sophie Harper (just to name a few).  You start by creating a Style Profile where you fill out your accessory preferences such as gold, silver, rose gold and particular trends you usually wear such as statement earrings, pendant necklaces, more delicate rings etc. You then create a Wishlist of jewelry that you like.  A stylist selects 3 pieces at a time to send to you from your Wishlist. You can swap any or all of these selected pieces and give your final approval before they ship.  You get to keep these 3 pieces as long as you wish or return and reorder as many times you want with your membership.  The Rocksbox membership is a flat $21 a month and includes free shipping both ways. It is up to you how many different pieces you will be sporting in a month!  Once you send your current box back, you can immediately select the pieces for your next box.

If you are someone like myself, I enjoy having beautiful and trendy jewelry.  Rocksbox is the perfect way for me to stay accessorized without constantly spending a fortune to keep my accessories current and fresh.  It is a super easy to use and affordable service.  I have been receiving so many compliments on all of my jewels!

For my first month I selected my 3 pieces of jewelry all to be earrings as that is what I tend to accessorize with the most.  I was really impressed that they were all in pristine condition. Each pair came bubble wrapped and their own little jewelry bag wrapped up in the cutest little box.  If you end up falling in love with one of your pieces (or all of them!) you also have the option to purchase it.  Just don’t included them when you ship the box back and you will simply be billed for the item.  The great part about this is Rocksbox actually lets you apply your $21 monthly membership fee towards the purchase of your jewelry!  I may or may not have been unable to part with the Wilde white beaded drop earrings below… 😉

My Gorgeous Wooden Watch

I love a good statement accessory as much as the next person! Something that I can wear in my day-to-day life that is practical, yet still eye-catching and attractive.  This is why I was so excited when Jord watches (pronounced Yode) reached out to me to see if I would be interested in styling on of their gorgeous wooden watches.

Jord Watch

Jord was kind enough to gift me a watch of my choosing.  After much deliberation, I decided on a watch from the Frankie series Purpleheart & Plum.  The Purpleheart wood has a naturally rich purple colour with a fine grain pattern.  It is really soft on my wrist and so easy to wear. This watch is absolutely stunning and easily my favourite accessory right now.  The craftsmanship and quality are very impressive and I love that their watches are a combination of natural, and mostly re-claimed materials. It is honestly unlike any timepiece I have seen before, so unique!

Jord Wooden WatchJord Wooden WatchJord GiveawayUnique wooden Watch

Most of Jord’s watches have additional options for customization. You can mix and match the faces and woods, and the backplates and Cedar humidor presentation boxes can be engraved as well!  Every watch comes with a one year warranty and free worldwide shipping.  The company was an absolute pleasure to partner with. Part of the reason I started my blog in the first place was because I wanted to be able to easily share clothing, accessories, places and experiences that I enjoy.  I can honestly say that I love my new wooden watch and would definitely recommend Jord to anyone that is looking for a high quality wooden watch!  There are so many beautiful watches on the website to choose from, it was definitely a tough choice.

Lucky for you I have teamed up with Jord to giveaway $100.00 towards the purchase of any one of their stunning watches! Everyone who enters will receive a small discount code just for trying! You can enter this giveaway by following the link below:

Fabulous Fall Accessories!

As the saying goes, accessories are necessities!  A beautiful accessory can literally make your entire outfit.  I totally appreciate pieces like a simple black saddle bag or a classic plaid scarf, but during this season there is a ton of room for being as bold as you want to!  Hats are huge for Fall 2017…  and not just the cute felt floppy hats like we have seen the last couple years, but also baker boy hats (my new obsession!) chic berets, pom-pom toques, page boys, felt fedoras in every colour and embellished headbands.  There are an abundance of fun Fall accessories to make a statement with.  Tons of vibrant colours, patterns and various textures.  I know it’s easy to stick to neutrals, but this year with your classic black coat why not try a pair of vibrant burgundy leather gloves or a leopard print scarf instead?  I am also a huge believer in belts.  They can often add a fun element to an understated outfit!  You will be seeing a ton of oversized buckles and thick, corset style belts this Fall.  Be bold and be confident with your accessories and you will be amazed at how many compliments you will get 🙂

I have linked a bunch of fabulous and really reasonably priced Fall accessories below:
