Blue Nile Necklace Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received a necklace for purposes of review. All opinions are my own.

Recently, Blue Nile contacted me to do a review and giveaway for one of their pieces of jewelry as part of their "Get One, Give One" campaign, and I jumped on it.  I mean I remember when I purchased my wedding band from them over 9 years ago(!).  Their quality is top notch.  I had a choice of a few pieces but decided that the Branch Necklace in sterling silver was perfect!
I love how delicate and pretty it is.  It's perfect for everyday wear!  I have really been moving away from bold "statement" necklaces and more towards smaller, simpler, more understated pieces and this fits the bill.

Make sure you check out Blue Nile's other jewelry goodies, there's really something for everyone!

Like I said before, they gave me one of these beautiful necklaces to give away to my readers!  Just enter with the rafflecopter below.  Open to USA and Canada only. Good luck!

FabFitFun Winter Box Review

I had kind of given up on all the various subscription boxes (I used to get Sample Society's box every month), but gave up on them when I found I just had more than I could possibly use,  I mean I still have perfume samples I haven't even touched.  It just got to be too much.  But when I found out about Giuliana Rancic's FabFitFun seasonal boxes and all the positive reviews, I decided to jump on board as a little birthday treat for myself.  The cost is $49.99 per box (four times a year) but I used a discount code they had on the website for $5 off so I ended up with this box costing $44.99.  The Winter box was delivered yesterday:

I was so pleased with everything in the box!  Here's the rundown on what was inside:
1. The Giving Keys Never Ending Necklace - $55 ($45 style here)
2. TruEnergy Earbuds - $39.99 (I actually needed new earbuds so this was a major score)
3. Simple Foaming facial cleanser - $7.49
4. Bioxidea Miracle 24 mask - $19
5. Skyn Iceland Icelandic relief eye cream - $45 (I am a HUGE fan of this eye cream)
6. Beauty For Real lip gloss - $22 (the color I got was "Don't Stop Red")
7. Lorna Jane Bracelet - $29.99
8. NYX Eye Shadow Palette - $8 (I got the Ciao Bella palette - it's gorgeous)
9. MeUndies Gift Card - $20
10. Five Physique 57 online classes - $25

For a grand total value of $271.47!  I'll be sticking around for the Spring box for sure!

2. Wrap jacket - $79.99

If I Had This Fendi Bag...

I would be the happiest girl in the world.  Why, you ask?  Because, it looks like a regular black leather bag...

But when you open it up...
There are monster eyes staring at you.

But wait, there's more...
I can't even tell you guys how much I LOVE this bag.  The perfect mix of fashion and fun!  Now if only someone could buy it for me, 'cause this cutie ain't cheap.  

They also have some owl baguettes.
