Updated: New Subscription Box Fret Loot

Updated: FretLoot failed to launch and is unresponsive via email and Facebook. I was forced to take action through Paypal to get my money back. 

I may be a purse and makeup junkie but I married a guitar player. So every time I make eyes at him and ask if I can buy the latest pallet he just thinks to himself about the extra zeros on the next guitar he wants and thus never says no. So I have been constantly trying to find a subscription to share the love. Who does not like opening pressies in the mail or stalking the mailman?
ITS FINALLY HAPPENED – A subscription for FRET LOVERS! I’m super excited to tell you about a new subscription: Fret Loot. Pick if you are a guitar or bass player then enjoy!
Price? $18/mo
The Box: You will receive 3 to 5 items in your box.
What’s in the box? New finds, wants, needs, and things that you are too busy to get. They will search the country and world to find subscribers the freshest gear and accessories. 
There will also be things just for fun, inventive solutions and even coupons. 
I love coupons!
Check out the site to learn find more info and get on the list for September.

Birchbox CEW Mass Appeal and Prestige Limited Edition Boxes - Review and Unboxing

I have been anxiously awaiting the CEW boxes for a month now. This is a little sad because they were much better last year but I do not really know any better and am loving the box anyways. If you are still interested the Mass ($12) and Prestige ($18) boxes are still available on Plus if you buy them both together its $4 off so $26 total. Also I am not made of money so I was really happy to find out that I had some Birchbox points saved up!

Sephora Opi Haul

Sad news! Sephora and Opi are ending the glorious partnership of bringing us yummy nail polishes! Sephora plans to come out with their own line all by themselves to leave Opi alone to continue their beauty nail salon world domination. Personally I LOVE Opi. Probably just bias because every time I go to a salon its basically your only choice. But the color tends to last. I have not really compared Sephora Opi vs the regular brand so I do not know if the formulas are the same or different. What do you think? Nevertheless we won't be guessing for much longer because their happy love story is about to end. So the girls at Sephora said that they are really excited about the new line and that it will be gel like and hopefully will last a really long time. I personally do not like gel nails because they discolor and damage my natural nails. That being said I am still super excited to try the new line. 

Make sure to stop by Sephora to grab some Opi polish for $4.50 before it all sells out. AND ask if they have any samples or gifts with purchase:)

HauteLook Summer Beauty Bag Review and Unboxing July

The HauteLook Summer Beauty Bag is no longer available:( I know sad day. But I wanted to do this review so you see how awesome the bags always are. People are sometimes mega downers and complain about the new bags because the older ones were slightly better but this bag is still amazing and I love that they show you the stuff ahead of time so you can make a good decision. 

Anyways, the bag was only $20 + Tax and Shipping. For me this is a great value because I had a couple items I knew I loved and the rest were brands that I was excited to try.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013 Review

I received wine gift cards for in several different subscription boxes and thought I would give it a try. The gift card was good for $50 off. I am not sure but I think you have to buy a case so either 6 or 12 bottles at a time. I chose a 12 bottle case. You also have to be there when the case is delivered so I had it sent to my families house because I was at work. 

So for me $54.72 is not bad for 12 bottles! So far the first one I tried was super yummy. I will update the post as I go and leave feedback on how I liked them, although wine is really about personal taste and I do not think my feedback is overly helpful about wine. You really need to try it to see if you like it etc. 

So as far as Naked Wines go...I ordered and got the delivery 5 days later so that is pretty good. Then they gave me a $40 coupon as a thank you. I think its their way of trying to get you to keep buying. Anyways I am happy and thought I would let you know:)

Birchbox Review July

 Birchbox is often regarded as on of the first beauty subscription boxes. I have even heard of people having 2 or 3 subscriptions. Apparently you fill out a survey and their stylist match the box to your survey results. Thus why people like to try multiple subscriptions to try different survey answers and see their results. There were at least 50 box versions this month. I wish I could have one of everything!
