Wantable Accessories Subscription Box Review

Posted on February 6, 2014

Hi Guys!

Have you heard? Wantable.com is coming to the UK! If you haven’t heard of Wantable, they are a monthly subscription box service offering makeup, accessories and intimates boxes based in the US.

How does it work? With Wantable you firstly choose your category (makeup, accessories or intimates) then answer some questions so they know what styles you like, and what you don’t like. You can then subscribe for $36 (£22.08) a month or $40 (£34.53) for a one off box – it’s also handy to know you can skip a box or cancel your subscription at any time. So here is my first accessory box!

Firstly I’d like to point out, the box only took about a week and a half from the date of order to arrive, I thought this was fantastic as it came from the US! When I opened the box there was a big banner across the foam insert saying ‘Hello, Beautiful’. This made me smile and I thought it was a lovely touch.

Inside there was an invoice showing the items that were picked for me and their values, and a list of the categories I said I loved and liked (I hadn’t disliked any)

So first up, I received a black pair of sunglasses in a pouch, they’re a good style to suit most face shapes, I’m definitely happy with these 🙂 These sunglasses feature a subtle cat eye shape for a classic meets modern look (Barb Sunglasses, $15)

The Donatella Ring features a unique, spiked design in a brushed gold tone finish for a look of a multi-finger ring without the discomfort (Donatella Ring $20)

And finally a lovely necklace – When you want to add a little something extra to your ensemble, the Vieira Necklace is the perfect choice! This silvery necklace features faceted chevron elements in a chic smokey grey (Vieira Necklace $28)

Overall I’m really happy with my box, these are all pieces I will wear! The total value came to $79 (£48.08) The cost of the box was $36 (£22.08), so I think I’ve got a pretty good deal!! 🙂 I think it’s also worth mentioning that shipping to the UK is $7 and tax is 20% making the total cost of a monthly subscription box $50.20 (£30.79) Before you’re put off by this, firstly $7 shipping from the US is really cheap, and the 20% tax is because you’re purchasing outside the EU, this upfront fee is to save you paying on receipt of your box. I hope that all makes sense!

Astrid & Miyu Jewellery Secret Box Review

Posted on June 23, 2013

I used to subscribe to beauty boxes, two of the well known ones actually, but almost every month I felt disappointed. I found I could often pick up better sized free samples from beauty counters of products I actually wanted to try! So, I cancelled my subscriptions, and recently came across the Astrid and Miyu Secret Box Subscription.

How is this different?? I’s a  jewellery box subscription! Why has this not been done before!? Astrid and Miyu sell fabulous fashion-forward quality jewellery at really reasonable prices, and their style is right up my street. The Secret Box subscription service is £39 per quarter (every three months) and they promise to send you items worth £100 in every box! These are pieces I would purchase anyway so this is just awesome! When you sign up they send you a questionnaire via email, you can tell them exactly what you like and don’t like so you know the items you receive will be suited to your style. If there’s something you can’t wait to get your hands on you can also shop directly from their site.

The first box was sent earlier in June and this is what I recieved – a high quality pretty box tied with a pink bow.

Inside were three canvas pouches and some cards,

This is my jewellery! I love it all! I have the Conflicting Choices Necklace (£29) the Silky Charm in Fuchsia Bracelet (£19) and the Neon Lights in Yellow Bracelet (£19).

Also included were some cocktail recipe cards, and a money off voucher!

Now the eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that my items did not add up to £100. In fact they added up to £67 worth of jewellery. I contacted Astrid and Miyu to let them know as this is quite a way off the £100 mark. They were very lovely and apologised for the mistake. Straight away they posted me this gorgeous Conflicting Choices Bracelet (worth £24) and I couldn’t be happier!

I absolutely love my jewellery and can’t wait to receive my next box in September!
