Hi ladies!! Ok, so so here’s the deal. I am busy, like really busy. Running a small business and a full time blog takes a lot of work. And when I’m not working, I’m either running a whole bunch of grown-up errands, or enjoying the precious little time I get to sit down and relax with my little family.
I am sure many of you know exactly what I’m talking about when I say I just do not have time to go shopping. Like none. So when the ladies at Rocksbox reached out to me to give their jewelry subscription box a try as a Rockbox ‘It Girl’, I was unbelievably excited! Sparkly bling hand picked by a stylist delivered right to my door? Without adding a single thing to my to do list? Yes please!
After my first box came, I kid you not I wore ever single piece of jewelry around the house, in my pajamas, while I worked, for the rest of the day. And I. felt. fabulous! Don’t lie, you know you’d do the same thing 😉 I won’t judge.
I thought I’d do an unboxing post of sorts, to share what I got in my first Rocksbox haul, and my first impressions of their service. And there may even be a special code at the end for all you lovely readers to try out Rocksbox for yourselves!
I was provided with a 3-month subscription to Rocksbox free of charge to share my thoughts with you guys. I receive a small commission if you sign up for Rocksbox using my discount code. Partnerships like this help keep Label Me Merrit running, and your support is always so appreciated <3. As always, all opinions shared here are my own!
First of all, your Rocksbox goodies come in the most adorable box (which you can see here). It is just too precious with the adorable ribbon bow holding it closed, and I wish so hard that you could keep it!! Unfortunately the box is what you send your goodies back in (using a prepaid shipping label and envelope provided with your package) so I’ll just have to enjoy it while it lasts!
When you open your cute little box, you are met with some more adorable packaging. Inside you’ll find a personalized letter from your stylist, sharing a little bit about which pieces she chose for you and why. It also lists the pricing information for each piece sent to you. Did I mention you have the option to buy and keep all the pretty jewelry sent your way? And each month you get $10 “shine spend” to spend towards your goodies!
There was also a super cute quote card inside the box, which I am totally thinking about adding to my desk’s gallery wall, or turning into a dashboard for my planner! I’m not sure if each box comes with a different quote card, but mine says “Be someone’s sunshine when their skies are grey.” Love it. And on the back it gives you some info about their referral program (which gives you $25 for every friend you invite who signs up).
Ok and on to the good stuff!! Inside the most adorable tissue paper (which is totally getting added to my craft stash!) each piece of jewelry comes in it own little dust bag to keep it nice and safe on it’s way to you. I swear this part was like opening presents on Christmas morning! I was just so excited to open up each little bag and see which pieces my stylist had selected for me!
And oh my goodness she was just spot on!! I was definitely thrilled right off the bat with the jewelry I was sent, they were all my style and things I would love to wear. Prior to getting sent my first box, I did take some time to scroll through their inventory on the Rocksbox website, and add a few things to my wishlist. I also took a style survey when I setup my account. These two things help your stylist get to know your personal style, and pick out the perfect pieces to send you!
The first piece I received were these Trina Turk Geo Stone Triple Drop Earrings in Coral. I have been crushing hard on this coral color recently, so I loved that right off the bat. While they are definitely statement earrings, and on the larger side, they definitely didn’t feel huge while wearing them. They weren’t heavy or pulling on my earlobes at all, which really bothers me about a lot of larger and heavier earrings. These were relatively lightweight for their size. And just so cute!
Next up is this dainty Sophie Harper Pave Infinity Bracelet. I was raised as a dainty jewelry girl, so I just fell head over heels for this piece right away. Not to mention that the infinity symbol is very special to my relationship (my promise ring is in this shape), so that just pushed it over the edge as my favorite piece in this set.
I loved the versatility of this little bracelet, and wore it both on it’s own for a simple look, and paired with other bracelets for a bit of an arm party! The one thing I was a little iffy about with this piece was the clasp. It didn’t have the heavy weight feeling of a sturdy clasp, and I was a little afraid it would get stuck when opening and closing it.
However, I’ve been wearing this bracelet almost daily since I received it, and it hasn’t given me any trouble! This is the one piece I’m considering buying and keeping for myself, just trying to justify it with my budget!
The last piece in my box is this Perry Street Kayla Necklace, and oh my gorgeous!! Like I said above, I was raised a tiny, delicate jewelry girl, but I have started a love affair with statement jewelry over the last year or so. So while I’m still a little hesitant with gigantic necklaces that seem to chandelier all the way to your belly button, this beauty is the perfect size for me.
This piece is delicate it its own way, with the beautiful turquoise geo stones (another favorite color recently) and some simple crystal detailing alternating across the necklace. It is bold and statement-y, without being overwhelming or gaudy. I think it is just beautiful, and may shed a tear or two when I have to say goodbye and send it back!
And that finishes up my very first Rocksbox haul! I am just so in love with every single piece my stylist sent to me, and I cannot wait to see what she picks next time!
