My First Rocksbox + #H54F

Friday, March 18, 2016

This was a pretty busy week. I worked three days because I always take off for St. Patrick's Day so that means five days worth of work in three days. This is not easy. Also, if you follow me on social media you know we have been putting in a new floor. It has been very difficult. I also got my first Rocksbox set so lot's to talk about today.

1. ADVENTURES IN FLOORING
As I already talked about we spent the weekend working on the floor. Unfortunately, like most DIY projects it is taking longer than expected. My poor husband has been working his tail off. He had help for a couple of days with a friend, but he couldn't come over every day. At this stage the living room and hallway are complete and I love it! Hoping by the end of the weekend we are finally done with this and we get our upstairs back. Wish us luck!




2. WERK
I had a short week (Monday-Wednesday) this week. Which means five days  of work in four days. So it was pretty busy. My head was spinning trying to arrange things. I really love my job, but any change in schedule becomes a real pain. Expectations are the same despite the shortened week. It was a little nutty, but knowing I have a four day weekend was well worth it.


3. ST PATRICK'S DAY FESTIVITIES
Thursday was St. Patrick's Day and it is literally one of my favorite days of the year. My whole life my dad marched in the parade with his buddies downtown St. Paul. Kilt and all. When I was old enough I went for the first time with my cousin Candice (She's Leaning In) and we had a blast. I have gone every year since. Even when it was cold and gross we were out there. Over the years I have gotten some friends and cousins to come with. I love marching in the parade and feeling like I am carrying on a tradition. Oh also, we don't sign up to march. We just jump in. It's the Irish way ;)



4. TV ADDICT
These days I feel like I cannot keep up with all the TV out there and I am a fanatic. I keep bopping around between my favorite Bravo shows, House of Cards and this week I added The People Vs. O.J. Simpson. I cannot. keep. up. It is probably a good and bad thing. Good that so much quality TV is on and bad because I spend all my time doing it. Watching anything good lately? I need to add to my list.


5. ROCKSBOX





So this week I got my first Rocksbox set. I have heard about this for a while but was not sure what to do or what to make of it. Then I saw a free offer code from another blogger, A.Liz Adventures, and thought "what the heck?" I'll give it a try. The first step is to fill out a fashion profile. So very similar to Stitch Fix. You answer a few questions about your style and what types of pieces you typically wear. They don't want to send you pieces you'll never wear. Then there is also a wishlist. You can add lots of items to this so they get a better sense of your style. Sometimes you'll get items from your wishlist and sometimes they will just use it as inspiration. Then you get the box and you can keep the items for as long as you want, rental style. You can buy what you like for a discounted price, or just return all the items to get a new box. The rental piece is what made me nervous, but also seems fun to get new items every so often. Here is what I got:


These I love. These were on my wishlist and the stylist worked everything else around it. I really love ear crawlers. I love the unique look of them. All the fun of a big statement earring without all the hassle. I think you can also easily dress it up or down. I love when my pieces are versatile that way so I can mix and match and keep my look fresh. I really like how sleek these are and the changing jewels for a little more depth. Very happy with this.




This I was less thrilled with. It's a little plain for me. I like a dainty necklace as much as the next girl, but nothing about this stood out to me. The little discs have already gotten tangled a few times. I hate, hate when necklaces tangle. Inevitably it will get so tangled we'll never be able to wear it again. I also am not crazy about this kind of silhouette.  It reminds me of a rosary so I am not about it.

3. HOUSE OF HARLOW 1960 DEFINED DECO ANGLED CUFF


This cuff is so beautiful. I just bought two items from House of Harlow a few weeks ago and I love them. This is the kind of simple I like. Very simple silhouette, small jewels and negative space. Love. Love it. I really like the black jewels. It is a fun alternate to the typical clear sparklies that are everywhere. Not that I don't love those, but it is nice to have a change. My only hesitation in keeping this is that it is a bit fancier so I might get limited use out of it. I have not decided if I will buy it yet or not, but I will enjoy wearing it for a while :)


So what do you think? Do you agree with my opinions? Do you disagree? What would you do? Leave me a comment below I would love to hear from you.
