SprezzaBox: September + Bonus Box!

You all may remember that I ordered a Sprezza box last year around this time of the year as a present for my boy.  If you want to see that box you can find it here!  I was amazed then, and then I ordered these and have been even more impressed!  These boxes are full of really nice quality products for men, and I love that there is a subscription company catering to the men in our lives and trying to make them dress better.
When I ordered they were doing a promotion, which was the current box and a past box for $20.  I'm not sure if it is still active, but I used the code "BONUSBOX20" so you all can give it a shot!

The September box theme was "The Perry" with classic patterns, but heavier fabrics and darker colors for fall.

This box included:
  • Bryt Dress Socks - $11.66
  • FRESHeTech Earbuds - $29.95
  • Peter Daniel Leather Bracelet - $10
  • Sprezza Pocket Square - $18
  • English Laundry Oxford Bleu Cologne - They said this small bottle was worth $20, but the full size 1.7 oz is $70.
  • Perry Ellis Necktie - $45 
My favorites from this box for my man had to be the tie and the cologne.  The cologne smelled amazing, I really hope he likes it as much as I do!
I also like the leather bracelet, but more for me that a man.  I have been wearing that quite a bit recently because there is no chance any man in my life would wear that.
The earbuds were just kind ehh, neither great or bad.
My least favorites were the pocket square and socks.  I'm sure there are men that would enjoy those, but I have none in my life.

Total retail of these items (according to the card) - $134.61

The bonus box I received was "The Beekman" from July.  This was a very summery boat themed box for a very metro kind of man.

This box included:
  • Bedford & Broome Socks - $12
  • Dappered Man Leather Key Fob - $10
  • Ursa Major Face Wash - The card said this small bottle is $6, but full size retails for $12, so...
  • AusCufflinks - $24.95
  • Grand Frank Pocket Square - $16
  • Jack Sartori Necktie - $78
From this box I will probably only give my man the tie and socks, and maybe the face wash.  I love the socks though, they are too cute!
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what to do with the cufflinks and pocket square.  I don't know any men who own or wear boats... So theres that.
And as for the key fob, it is another item that is neither here nor there.  Its just ok.

Total retail of these items (according to the card) - $146.95

Overall both boxes had their high and low points, but I definitely liked the first one better than the second.  All in all I think these are nice presents, and I don't regret buying them; I'm even thinking about resubscribing to get the October box because it has a couple really great items!  If you have been on the fence then I say give it a shot!

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

Date Box: October

So you may or may not remember, about two Christmases ago I ordered a Date Box!  It had hot chocolate and mugs, with a gingerbread house kit (you can find the full review here).  My boyfriend as I had the most fun with it, and the mugs were gorgeous, so on a whim this October I decided to give it another try!
As stated in the last post, it is about $40 a month, which is a bit steep in my opinion, but if you really need some new date night ideas, then this would be a fun and creative way to get them.  If you search, you can find a discount code bringing the price of your first box down to $5.  I'm not going to post the code because it isn't mine to give out, but they are easy to come by!  They also offer a digital option now, which is $8 a month.  If you scroll down to the bottom of their about page there is a bar where you enter your email and they send you your first digital date for free, which seems to be a cooking class for two!
The experience is significantly more person…

Three Ways to Christmas Shop on the Cheap

Christmas shopping is something a lot of us tend to put off until the last second, and then are scrambling the week before Christmas to buy things just because you feel like you have to.  You end up buying something, at exorbitant obnoxious prices, that you know the person you are buying for won’t even like!

I came up with a few ways you can get awesome presents, not have to kill yourself trying to get them at the last minute, and not break the bank...
My first suggestion, is to shop in advance! I know, this seems super simple, but you wouldn't believe the difference it makes to start a couple months in advance, and just buy things you know the person would like as you see them.  This year, I stopped in an antique shop on my way to work one day, just to look around.  I ended up leaving with this gorgeous bowl, mug, and tea set with I am planning to give to family members, and because the place was about to close down, I got them for half off the original price!That leads me right in…
