Hands up if you’re a sucker for anything that sparkles and glitters?!

I’m like a magpie; I love my glitz and I can often be seen drooling over expensive jewellery in shop windows. However, for someone who loves it so much – I don’t actually own much jewellery. It’s not the sort of thing I’d ever buy for myself, so I only really get new pieces when I get them as gifts. In terms of my taste, I’ve always been one for more expensive pieces that I wear over and over, rather than constantly updating my costume jewellery collection. A nice watch, Pandora bracelet and my wedding and engagement rings and that’s pretty much me done. So, when I was given the opportunity to review GLITZBOX; a service which enables you to change up your jewellery style monthly with stylishly designed pieces I was absolutely thrilled! It sounded right up my street.

So, what is GLITZBOX?

GLITZBOX is a luxury jewellery rental subscription service. In a nutshell, customers pay a monthly subscription fee and receive a beautiful box with 3 items of jewellery per month to wear at their leisure. The idea is to connect women with new and exciting designers who are making gorgeous jewellery, and enabling them to change their glitz up every month! Once the month is up, you simply pop the pieces back in your box and send it back with the free-post label. OR if (like me) you fall in love with one or more of your jewellery pieces you can fill in a form inside the box and the price will be changed to your account minus your ‘glitz credit’ (more on that later). Easy peasy.

GLITZBOX offer 3 different subscription options depending on your style.

As you can see the Glitz Credit that you receive towards any purchases varies depending on your subscription. Additionally, you can get extra credit for referring friends. Once you have selected whether you want gold, silver or mixed you also fill out a ‘style quiz’ which helps the GLITZ team to choose pieces that you will love!

What was in my box?

I trailed a gold box and indicated in my style quiz that I prefer boho style jewellery. Here’s what I received:

Mei Li Rose – Delicate gold necklace

How beautiful?! I love the simple style of this necklace. I just adore the shape and how delicate it is. I really enjoyed wearing it.

Tea and Tequila – Boho chunky bracelet

So, I admit, I loved this bracelet so much I actually bought it! I just love the gemstones and how colourful it is. It’s absolutely gorgeous and just the sort of thing I would buy for myself.

Sharon Mills – Gem stone earrings

These earrings are gold with a stone set in them. Out of all the pieces this is probably the one I wouldn’t choose for myself as I don’t normally wear any more that tiny studs! But I really like how these looked on me and maybe it will persuade me to branch out in my earring style! (NOTE all jewellery is sterilised before it’s sent out).

What did I think?

I absolutely love the idea of GLITZBOX, for any lady who loves jewellery and experimenting with new styles then I think it’s an amazing service. It’s a fresh idea, something different that I’ve never come across before. Obviously, it’s a monthly payment which I would definitely consider as a ‘luxury item’ and it may not always be affordable – but the great thing is that you can cancel anytime. I love the element of the style quiz and I think this is something which is really unique for a subscription service, and it clearly works because the pieces I received were bang on in terms of my personal style! The whole process is also remarkably easy; the box is delivered without hassle, it contains a calendar letting you know when you need to return it buy, all the info and prices about your jewellery AND the returns are free. I think it’s fabulous.

*Please note: I was sent this box for reviewing purposes, however the opinions are my own and I truly believe in this brand and what it offers*

Hands up if you love gin! Everyone?? Yep, I thought so. Gin is IN. It is the now drink. It’s become the high fashion, go-to choice which screams sophistication. Plus, it’s a lot less calorific and fattening than other tipples like wine or prosecco. Hello gin.

So, when Gin Explorer got in touch with me and asked me to review their November box of their monthly gin subscription service I was only too happy to oblige. I am by no means a gin expert, but I drink gin so I feel I am well placed to review a box of delicious gins from around the world.

So what is it?

Gin Explorer is a monthly subscription service which delivers 4 gin miniatures from around the world. The box is beautifully presented and each month includes 4 delicious, hand-picked bottles of gin for the lucky customer to sample. In addition; you get interesting information about your gins including where they come from and how they’re made. In my November box I also received some cucumber tonic and some nibbles.

I get it. A monthly subscription for alcohol does seem a bit luxurious and something that the rich and famous would indulge in! However, I’ve been doing my sums and if you enjoy a social drink at home with friends or partners then this could actually work out cheaper than purchasing your booze ad hoc. Also, it’s much more sociable and fun to try a variety of gins with your friends than to just settle down with a bottle of Gordons for the night. Just saying.

There are several ways to pay for this subscription. You can pay monthly; which costs £24.99 inc. delivery, or you can save money by paying upfront for 3 months (£69.99) or even a whole year (£279.99).

 In my box I received 4 gins which were all seriously yummy; Herni Gin, Leeds Gin, a rhubarb and custard flavoured gin and Thompsons Grape Gin. My favourite was the Grape gin.

This would be an amazing Christmas gift for the gin lover in your life, or equally a little naughty treat for yourself. How exciting to have a surprise delivery of mini gins every month, come on??
