Subscription Box Review – Ladiee T Jewelry Monthly Earring Box October and November 2018

All the earrings I received in October and November

It is subscription box review again. I have quite a few of these I want to try to get  through before Christmas time gets here.  If you missed my last one, you can go back and check out the Black Unicorn Subscription Box review at your leisure. You can also find all of the subscription box reviews I have done by going to any page here on the blog, find the green bar under my logo and click on the down facing arrow. You should see a search box and you can search for subscription box reviews.

A few months ago when I first started looking for subscription boxes to review for this year I had a few goals in mind. I wanted to find a variety of types of boxes, boxes in various budget levels, and boxes that in addition to being of interest to all of you would maybe make good gifts.

I have definitely shared some affordable boxes in the beauty category before, but not everyone is into makeup I do think this will by far be the most affordable subscription box I have shared as of yet, and I believe it is very giftable.

Because of the nature of this box and the variety that can come in it, I thought I would share what I got for both the months of October and November.

 

Service Name: Ladiee T Jewelry Monthly Earring Box

 

Price: $8.99 to $56.99 (This box has a large price range because of several box options and payment terms options. Prices may vary when you go to sign up if they are running a sale.)

 

Where Is It Available: This subscription is only available to US residents.

 

Who To Get It For: Anyone who loves jewelry, especially earrings. who has pierced ears. Age doesn’t matter as they have a box option for younger subscribers. This would also be great for someone who is just beginning to build their jewelry collection.

 

What You Get: There are three different earring boxes available from Ladiee T Jewelry that somewhat customizable to your own tastes and preferences. Here are your options:

Princess Collection for Girls – Each month’s box contains two randomly selected pairs of earrings that is age appropriate for girls between 5 and 10 years of age. Earrings in this box are deliberately kept small in size and are mostly studs.

Women’s Monthly Earring Packet – Each month you will receive one medium to large sized pair of earrings. Earrings sent will be based on your taste and style preferences chosen.

Women’s Monthly Earring Box – Each month you will receive two stylishly hand-picked medium to large pairs of earrings. Earrings sent will be based on your taste and style preferences chosen. (This is the one I will be sharing with you here.)

 

Drawbacks: If you like jewelry that is matching sets, this box won’t offer that. I don’t really see an option to find that on their main website either. So if that is a big deal to you, then this might not be the subscription for you.

 

The Details:

When you sign up you fill out a brief preference profile.

First you choose if you are subscribing for yourself or giving a gift. If you choose a gift subscription, then once you fill out the profile you will have the option to add a message that get emailed to the recipient once the subscription mails out.

First you are asked which subscription you want. Then you are asked about your metal color preference. No preference is totally an option here. Next you are asked about earring style preference, and again you can absolutely choose no preference. Finally you choose the length of the subscription you are paying for at once.

Every month the subscription arrives in a small cardboard box. (And again I would like to remind everyone to not worry about my safety, the mailing address shown is not my home address just the mail box I get my blog mail at. But I appreciate the concern people have shown)

The box the Ladiee T Jewelry subscription arrives in.

On the inside you will find your earrings individually wrapped as well as a small card, all lying on a bed of filler paper. The card just let’s you know about an opportunity to get an extra pair of earrings in the next month’s box by sharing it on social media.

Inside of the October Ladiee T Jewelry Box

This is the inside of the October Box

Inside of the Novermber Ladie T Jewelry Box

And this is the inside of the November box.

As you can see they pretty much arrive looking exactly the same each month.

For the month of October, here is what I received:

The earrings in the October Ladiee T Jewelry box.

One of the pairs of earrings for October

The second pair of earrings for October.

I actually really loved both pairs of earrings. Unfortunately they were both stud closures, and I can’t wear those. But at the end of the day that is fine. I got this subscription to review, and I have so many earrings. I gifted the red pair to one of the besties who I do steampunk with. Its kind of perfect for that kind of look. And the other pair I will also gift to someone or sell on my poshmark.

And now lets look at what was inside the November Box:

The earings inside the November Ladiee T Jewelry Box

One pair of earrings in the November box

The second pair of earring in the November box

These earrings are on French hooks, so I can actually wear them. So off to a great start for November. I did like the designs, and I will definitely wear them out. But I think I liked the designs in the October box more.

 

 

Where To Sign Up:

You can sign up on the Cratejoy website on the Ladiee T subscription page.

 

Final Thoughts:

I think this is a decent box for the jewelry lover. It’s certainly a good value. And I really think it would make a nice gift. I don’t really have any complaints. I felt like the whole process went smoothly and everything was shipped on time. Sometimes that is a big issue, especially for subscription boxes.

 

If you like the idea of this subscription box, but it’s not quite what you are looking for, here is a brief list of other boxes that may interest you.

Mint Mongoose – Must-have jewelry — your choice of silver, rose gold, or gold — delivered to you, every month!

Emma & Chloe – A surprise piece of French designer jewelry at your doorstep every month!

J Grace & Co – Little Black Box – Jewelry Subscription

Running With Scissors Jewelry & Accessories – Where GOTH, GLAM, and GORGEOUS unite! Jewelry & more you won’t find elsewhere.

Subscription Box Review – Black Unicorn Subscription Box November 2018 “The Wolf Box”

November 2018 Black Unicorn Subscription Box

Today I bring you another subscription box review. If you missed my last one, you can go back and check out the Macy’s Beauty Box review at any time. You can also find all of the subscription box reviews I have done by going to any page here on the blog, find the green bar under my logo and click on the down facing arrow. You should see a search box and you can search for subscription box reviews.

My last few reviews have been aimed at beauty boxes, but there is a lot of different types of subscription boxes out there. So, I wanted to make sure to get a few non makeup boxes reviewed this year too. I went on the hunt for some unique boxes, new boxes, boxes I hadn’t really heard a lot about, but boxes that still included things that interested me. It didn’t take me long till I came across the Black Unicorn Subscription Box.

I mean they kind of had me with the name. After all I do dress up as a black unicorn for Steampunk Symposium every year. It was meant to be, right?

 

Service Name: Black Unicorn Subscription Box

 

Price: $25.00 a month or $75.00 for three months, plus shipping.

 

Where Is It Available: This box is available internationally. Be aware you pay shipping and any customs fees due.

 

Who To Get It For: This box is meant to be targeted at people in alternative lifestyles. If you consider yourself Goth, Punk, Steampunk, Lolita, or even Wiccan this box may be of interest to you or alternatively the person you are gifting it to.

 

What You Get: Each month will have a theme. All items included will pertain to that theme in some way or another. Each box will include a crystal or other magical item, some sort of DIY item, and one or more items from a featured Etsy seller or small business. Types of items that will be included can range from home décor to accessories and everything in between.

 

Drawbacks: Since this box does not have once consistent theme, and items can come from a broad range of categories, there is a much higher chance you may receive items you don’t like. Also, if you don’t typically like the types of items you find on Etsy, this may not be the box for you.

 

The Details:

I often start this part off by showing you the boxes these arrive in. However, this particular subscription arrives in a plain brown box. No identifying logo or anything, and I really didn’t think you guys would be interested in seeing that.

So lets take a look at what came inside the box.

November 2018 Black Unicorn Subscription Box

In addition to what is pictured above, each box also includes a card insert that tells a little something about each item you receive. It also includes any pertinent information about the box.

As I said previously, each month the box has a different theme. This month’s box, November that is, is “The Wolf Box”. So most things in the box will relate to wolves in some way or another. I personally was quite happy with this month’s theme. I have really loved wolves since I was a teenager.

An added benefit with this box is that some of the proceeds go to a different charity each month, and this month’s proceeds was going to be donated to a charity that works towards Wolf Conservation. Once you are a subscriber you can join the subscription box Facebook page and you can make suggestions on charities you would like to see supported.

The DIY item in the Black Unicorn Subscription

 

DIY Stark Wolf String Art – Obviously this is the DIY craft project for this months box. It was created to be similar to the wolf that represents House Stark in Game of Thrones. For me this is an item I wasn’t personally crazy about. I don’t have a lot of extra time for crafting, so when I do it I am very particular about what crafts I want to do. This will most likely get passed on to my niece who loves to craft.

 

Custom unicorn beanie made for the Black Unicorn Subscription Box

 

Black Unicorn Beanie – This was the one item that was not related to the theme, but of course is related to the box. This item I was really excited about. I don’t wear a lot of hats, but beanies are one of the few that I can and do wear occasionally. And well it has a unicorn on it, and you guys know me and unicorns, so there is that.

 

 

Hand painted cork coasters in the Black Unicorn Subscription Box

 

Howling Coasters – This is a set of four coasters. They are made of cork and then hand painted with the wolf picture on each one.

This is an item that I felt torn about. On the one hand I really like what they are, or would have if they had arrived looking as they were intended to. Mine, and from my understanding, several other people’s warped. You can see this in the second picture that is from the side. Now of course I let the owner of the subscription box company know. She actually offered me and
Side view of the warped coastersothers several options, including the option for a partial refund. I actually chose to not take the refund because I wanted money to be able to go to the charity.

I decided to just chalk this up to something that  just wasn’t for me. That happens sometimes, and its a chance you take with subscription boxes. But I was just relieved to know the owner handled the situation well.

 

 

Crystal of the Month in the Black Unicorn Subscription Box

 

Magic Crystal – Every month’s box includes a crystal or similar item. I’m not sure if the card always refers to it as the Magic Crystal, or if that is just what it is calling it this month.

This month’s crystal is an orange calcite. According to the card this particular stone was chosen because, “Wolves are known to be extremely loyal to their packs, and this crystal enhances relationship connections, between you and your family. This crystal is also great for camaraderie and achieving goals, portraying
orange calcite compared to a mac lipstick bullethow the pack works together to survive in the wild.”.

I have also included a second picture of the orange calcite to help show the size od stone I received. I have it placed next to a MAC lipstick bullet. Of course due to the nature of the item, there will be variety in shape and size that people receive in their boxes.

This is another item I loved receiving. I have always loved crystals since I was a little kid. I find them fascinating and have a bit of a collection.

Vinyl VHS sticker in the Black Unicorn Subscription Box

 

Wolfen Vinyl Sticker – This was the item from the featured small business of the month. The business is Vinyl Hell Stickers Co. This was a custom designed sticker for the Black Unicorn box and it was based on the thriller film Wolfen. This is another item I wasn’t a fan of. I’m just not a fan of stickers in general. But again one of my nieces might really like this, and I think it could be put in her Christmas stocking as something fun.

Bad Wolf earrings in the Black Unicorn Subscription Box

 

Bad Wolf Earrings – The final item in the box was this pair of Bad Wolf earrings. If you are a Doctor Who fan, then no doubt you recognize the term. And of course I am a doctor who fan, and I was stoked to get these earrings. One of my steampunk costumes is doctor who themed, and I will definitely be wearing these with it.

 

 

 

 

Where To Sign Up:

You can sign up for the Black Unicorn Subscription Box on Crate Joy. You can find their page at https://www.cratejoy.com/subscription-box/black-unicorn-subscription/. They do offer multiple subscriptions, so be careful to make sure you are signing up for the correct one.

 

Final Thoughts:

In this particular box I was happy with half of the items, and with the other half, most of those items can be used as gifts. Personally I feel okay with that at the end of the day, especially knowing that part of what I spent goes to a good cause.

With this particular type of box, I think it is just par for the course that you have some months where you really love everything, and other months there are going to be some stinkers. Hopefully there won’t ever be any months where you don’t like anything.

Tell me in the comments what you think about this box. Would you/have you tried this box?

 

Now if you like the idea of this box but it’s not quite what you wanted, you might want to take a look at these other boxes:

Accio! – the first and only artisanal subscription box 100% inspired by the Potterverse.

Running With Scissors Jewelry & Accessories – Where GOTH, GLAM, and GORGEOUS unite! Jewelry & more you won’t find elsewhere.

Goddess Provisions – Monthly box with crystals, aromatherapy, natural beauty products & spiritual tools

Black Friday And Cyber Monday Sales 2018

Black firday and cyber monday deals

Its that time of year again, turkey and family followed by days of deals. This is always the time to get the best deals on Christmas gifts or just something special for yourself that you wouldn’t normally splurge on.

Black firday and cyber monday deals

 

That’s right it is time for those Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Just like last year I will continue to add to the list over the next few days as I find things, but this is going to be the majority of it.

Yes some of the links are affiliate links, but not all of them. Each year I try to give you only a list of the stores I believe to be giving a great deal that you can not get the rest of the year from that store, or at least not most of the year. And just like previous years, this will consist of mainly plus size clothing sales, but it will also have some beauty and other types of products. And this year I have added a section for subscription boxes as well. I will make it easy and list in categories and then in alphabetical order. So, if you are looking for Torrid, look in the plus size fashion section and then look for the T’s. Store names will be clickable and all their sales will be listed below their names.

Subscription Box Review – Mask Mistress From NY KBeauty October 2018

Everything that was included in the October Mask Mistress Subscription

It is time for another subscription box review. Today we will be looking at the Mask Mistress box. It is a newer sheet mask subscription box. This will most likely be the last beauty related subscription box review for the year, everything else will be in other categories unless something arrives as PR to review.

If you haven’t seen it already, make sure to check out the last subscription box review of Macy’s Beauty Box. You can also find all of the subscription box reviews I have done by going to any page here on the blog, find the green bar under my logo and click on the down facing arrow. You should see a search box and you can search for subscription box reviews.

 

Service Name: Mask Mistress (This is from NY KBeauy, but they have more than one subscription box you can get.)

 

Price: $14.99 a month plus shipping. I do believe the shipping cost is the same for everyone, at least everyone in the US, as they ship in a priority box. I paid $7.55 for shipping.

 

Where Is It Available: This box ships worldwide.

 

Who To Get It For: Anyone, including yourself, who loves skin care. Especially for those who love sheet mask, K beauty in specific.

 

What You Get: You are to get 10 Korean sheet masks every month. (They don’t specifically say that you get extras, but as you will see there were some bonus items sent with my package.)

 

Drawbacks: I didn’t feel like there were a lot of drawbacks for me, but I can see a couple of things that might be for some people. If you are looking for a mask subscription filled with things that you can then easily pick up at your local Ulta, Sephora, or other US retailer that carries sheet masks if you like them, this may not be the subscription for you. Also if you are looking for a customized mask experience based on your skin type, this isn’t going to be it, you will find a more general use types of masks in this subscription.

 

The Details: At least for right now this subscription arrives in a priority mail box.

Mask Mistress subscription arrives in a priority box.

This isn’t uncommon for newer boxes, so don’t be surprised if this changes later on. But do keep in mind that once subscription boxes start paying for their own printed boxes, while they may be cute, that often runs the price of the subscription up. (Side note: Before I get concerned emails: no, that isn’t my home address showing on that package. It’s a mailbox that anyone can find on my blog contact page.)

Mask Mistress subscription box is wrapped up inside tissue paper with a thank you sticker holding it closed.

When I got the box open, this is how everything came out. Everything was wrapped up in this pink tissue paper with Korean writing on it. And one of the bonus items was at the bottom semi wrapped in the paper. A thank you sticker was holding it all closed.

Everything that was included in the October Mask Mistress Subscription

Now lets take a closer look at the individual items sent. As always I will link to any of the items I find for sale individually in case you are interested in purchasing an item rather than the subscription. This box did not have a detail card with prices of the products, so there really isn’t anything to compare it to on that end.

Choosy lip mask in honey

 

This is a Honey Lip Mask from Choosy. I looked for this everywhere I shop, the only place that I could find them to purchase was at Amazon, and so that is where I have linked to. On Amazon a 5 pack sells for $14.99 with free prime shipping. But I will say that if you can find them somewhere else, they will probably be cheaper. This brand is sold at essentially a Korean dollar store, ant they cost about a dollar or less in Korea. In fact the one sent to me still had a sticker on it with the price. It had 1000 Korean won. Converted, that equals to 88 cents in the US.

Kocostar Lemon Slice Mask

 

This is a Lemon Slice Mask from Kocostar. Again, the only place I could find this currently in stock was on Amazon. There you can buy a two pack for $7.22. From what little I know about this brand, the price seems accurate.

 

Tomato slice mask from Kocostar

 

We received a second slice mask in this months Mask Mistress box. This time it is a Tomato Slice Mask from Kocostar. And as you might have already guessed, I could only find this in stock on Amazon. There you will find a two pack for $7.00.

 

The Bano Baby Face Injection Mask came in the October Mask Mistress

 

This is the Baby Face Injection Mask from Bano. And surprise, surprise, I could only find it on Amazon. On Amazon you can get a ten pack for $18.00.

 

 

Dr. Snart Anti-pore Clinic

 

I am not really sure what they are considering the name of this mask, so I am just going to tell you what the whole long thing says. This is the Dr. Smart Anti-Pore Clinic Double Zone Effect Pore Care Mask from Sense Of Care. And at this point you shouldn’t be surprised I could only find this on Amazon. On Amazon you get a 10 pack for $20.00.

Honeysuckle Lifting Mask from Mamonde came in the October Mask Mistress

 

This is the Honeysuckle Lifting Flower Lab Essence Mask from Mamonde. Believe it or not, this mask is actually available in more than one place. I have linked to YesStyle because they offer the best value selling them individually for $3.51. But they are available on Amazon in a 5 pack, if that is easier for you.

 

Real Barrier Extreme Cream Mask

 

This is the Extreme Cream Mask from Real Barrier. YesStyle has this mask available in three options, a pack of one, five or ten. One sells for $4.41, but if you are going for the ten pack it is cheaper to purchase over on Amazon.

 

On The Body X Kakao Friends Sheet Mask Moisture

 

So this mask has very little English on the packaging, but it did have enough to be able to search for it. The name on the back says this is ON: The Body X KAKAO Friends. There is a picture on the front that indicates this is for moisture. I searched all of the places I was comfortable recommending purchasing from and I was unable to find this mask.

Lavina Green Tea Essence Mask

 

This is the Lavina Green Tea Essence Mask. I could not find this mask on any of my trusted sites either.

 

 

 

Mamonde Rose Moisturizing Flower Lab Essence Mask

 

We have a second Mamonde Flower Lab Essence Mask in the October Mask Mistress subscription box. This time the mask is Rose Moisturizing. This sheet mask, like the other one from this brand, is also available on both YesStyle and Amazon. On YesStyle you can purchase it individually for $3.51 each, and that is what I have linked to above. But you actually get your best value for this mask on Amazon where you can buy a five pack for just $11.00.

Missha Honey Sheet Mask

 

This is the Missha Airy Fit Honey Sheet Mask. They are sold individually on YesStyle for $3.51.

 

 

 

Fresh Vita Cool Jelly Mask from SNP

 

The final mask we received is this Fresh Vita Cool Jelly Mask from SNP. I could only find this one on Amazon. Amazon has this mask in a ten pack for $21.00 with free prime shipping.

 

 

There were also some samples sent in this box.

Samples that came extra with my Mask Mistress October box.

 

The deluxe size sample I received is the Anti Dryness Camellia Deep Cleansing Foam from Dr. Young. In the plastic packet there was about ten packets of various Dr. Young products.

 

 

 

 

Because I couldn’t find a couple of the masks, and we have no book guide from NY KBeauty telling us the value of the mask, this will just be my best guess or a rough estimate of what I think this bag is worth had you bought all of these masks individually. I am not including any value on the samples sent because I don’t know if that is a regular occurrence and even if it is, this is supposed to be a sheet mask box. With that being said, my best estimate is this boxes value is $44.00.

 

Where To Sign Up: The Mask Mistress subscription is powered by Cratejoy, so you can find it along with many other subscription services on Cratejoy’s Website.

 

Final Thoughts: I think this box is a pretty decent value for this month. You are suppose to get ten masks, and they actually sent twelve. In what was sent there were three masks that I can’t use because of my allergy, but that is pretty typical from any mask subscription I have tried. And since they sent two extra masks, I can’t be too mad about it. I was exceptionally happy that there was only one mask in the whole pack that I had tried before, the whole point of getting a mask subscription for me is trying new things.

 

Other Subscriptions Of Interest: I am adding this as a new section to these subscription box reviews. I am limited on how many I can do each year due to time and finances. I try to balance out what I review with what I am interested in enough to spend money on with what I think the majority of people might be interested in reading about. I am sure that the things I pick don’t  suit everyone’s budget or needs, so I thought I would start adding a few recommendations of alternatives you might want to try if the one I review isn’t quite right for you.

So here are some similar subscriptions that may be of interest.

Mask Maven from Beauteque – get 9 sheet masks a month for just $15. You can also check out my previous review of the Mask Maven subscription.
