I have mentioned in the past that I am not much of a subscription box person. I play with the idea of signing up for Birchbox or Ipsy but honestly I don’t think I could use that many samples each month. I also LOVE to read Stichfix reviews but I don’t have the body for it. I am tall with a long torso so I have to try everything on and most of the time things are too short for me. One thing that definitely fits me and makes me happy every time it appears in my mailbox is my ROCKSBOX! Today I am sharing the details on my latest box (spoiler alert – it was a good one). Continue reading
It’s been a while since I have reviewed a Rocksbox set. I got my last one and liked the pieces so I wound up keeping and wearing them fora a month and a half. I just sent it in yesterday and I am stalking my Rocksbox account. I cant wait to see what they send me next!
My last box included:
Crystal Chain Cuff $50
This bracelet was really pretty and it had a very cool magnetic lock. Unfortunately, it was too small for me and left an indent in my one of my freakishly large wrists. #fatwristproblems
Lee Gold Earrings in Iridescent Drusy $52
I actually really liked these. The white color was nice and they were good for Summer but they were smaller than I pictured. I thought they would be the larger-sized, Kendra Scott earrings that you see everywhere. They were miniature compared to that. Otherwise they were cute and I did wear them a few times. They were not worth $52 to me though.
Greer V-neck Necklace $52
I have worn this necklace pretty much every day since I got it. (I am even wearing it as I type this.) It is so dainty and perfect for every day. It can be worn with casual clothes, fancy clothes, layered, worn alone. It is so versatile. Needless to say I BOUGHT IT! My first Rocksbox splurge! With my shine spend it was only $42. While it was more than I would normally pay for a necklace I love it enough that I think it was worth it.
I cant wait to get my new Rocksbox and will share my goodies when they arrive. In the meantime, if you are not signed up yet and would like to try a free month, you can use my code “alittleglitterxoxo“.
If you follow me on social media you may be Rocksboxed out at this point. If that is the case, I totally apologize and you can exit and we will meet up again tomorrow. Same place, same time, no Rocksbox.
My second Rocksbox started out as a bit of a bummer. I put my first box in the mail and got the confirmation that a new one shipped the next day. They had not even received my original box back yet. I was pretty stoked for the quick turnaround time. I started stalking the USPS website daily. My package was due to be delivered on a Monday but never showed up. By Wednesday I knew there was a problem. I emailed customer service and they were so accommodating! They sent out a new box that day, gave me a credit and apologized via email (for something that was not even their fault). My new box came and I loved the pieces. It contained:
Perry Street Bleeker Crystal Earrings $35 RETURN
These earrings are big. They are about the size of a quarter and they felt a little young (like my daughter should be wearing them). I loved the clear crystal because it coordinated with everything but I didn’t love the size or the style. They were very sparkly though.
I’m on the fence about this one. I got a lot of use out of it and I love the color of the bracelet. However, I thought it was kind of cheaply made and I had to bend it open to fit it over my fat wrists. I was afraid that after repeated use one day it would just snap.
Slate Spiked Pearls Necklace $70
I wore this one quite a bit. If I were going to keep any of the pieces they sent – this one would have been it. I love the juxtaposition between the spikes and the pearls and I appreciate the bit of sparkle. That being said – I did not want to pay $70 for a necklace right now so the Rocksbox business model worked out for me. I got to enjoy a beautiful (yet expensive) necklace and then send it back. Perfect.
So that’s the 2 month review. Still loving the service- still getting great jewelry! It’s stuff that I love to wear but dont want to buy for myself.
If you have any other questions, be sure to leave them in the comments below or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t forget- to try a first month TOTALLY free, just go to the website and use code “alittleglitterxoxo“.
Does anyone else love Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets? This one had me cracking up!
I am super excited about Valentine’s Day! The hubby and I have decided against going out to dinner on the actual day. It is a Saturday night and most restaurants will be packed and offer a Prix Fixe menu. Other years when we have tried to have a romantic night out on VDay it seems too rushed and crowded. Instead, we are going to hang with Taylor and go out the following weekend. I loved this article from Chelsea with some ideas on how to celebrate at home.
I am making this early next week in my crock pot. Mmmmmm. How good does that look?
Better Call Saul airs two episodes this weekend I am PSYCHED!

It’s still cold and supposed to snow tonight in New York (bleh) but it is officially Spring, so I’m going to make this week’s Want It Wednesday colorful and filled with things I love for the warmer weather anyway.
1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Percy Crossbody Bag. The small crossbody bag is HUGE for Spring and I am in love with this trend. This bag is big enough to store your cell phone, lip gloss, a small wallet, and other essentials. It is the perfect size and how cute is the color? Love.
2. Tom Ford Solange Sunglasses. Tom Ford makes the best shades. These are so glamorous!
3. Steve Madden Neliee Sandals. Camel colored sandals go with everything and they are a staple in my Spring/Summer closet. I love these!
4. AG Robyn Denim Jacket. Denim jackets are so timeless. They are durable, comfy and always fashionable. I love to pair mine with maxi dresses!
5. Kendra Scott Kinley Necklace. I must have this necklace. It is a gorgeous shade of mint and goes perfectly with number 6!
6. Ella Moss Lana Print Maxi Dress. I live in maxi dresses during the warmer parts of the year. I own a number of Ella Moss ones and they are so comfortable and (I am going to reveal how truly nerdy I am here…so brace yourselves) they make coordinating little girl’s clothes! Last year Taylor and I had a few maxi/tank top outfits that were in the same print. I don’t know if she will get on board with that this year but I still want this dress.
What have you ladies seen on the internet this week that you are loving?
