Vessel Scents Of Style Aroma Therapy Locket

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given for Testing and Review Purposes at a discounted price.

I have never owned a diffuser or aroma therapy locket let alone with beads before so because I was intrigued I decided to order one.
The one I got was the big zinc alloy heart that includes a a garnet charm and set of 15 Ruby colored sent spheres made of porous polymer clay.
The heart itself is big and magnetic and it has an antique gold finish and hangs on a 30 inch chain with loops affixed by a lobster clap claw.
The spheres are soft and come in a cute container included a the cute purple gift box with the Vessels scents of Style etched on it.

In the box, you get instructions and it says to put your favorite essential oil or perfume on the amount of beads you want, and once the oil or perfume is on them, rub them between your hands then pat dry them and place them in the locket.

I used it with my Elizabeth Arden True Love Roller ball I made so I rubbed the scent onto 3 spheres, patted them with a paper towel and put them in the locket. The sent lasted all day and it smelled so pretty, it fainted by the next day.
Then, I decided to put an essential on it and I used peppermint oil because of my allergies and I wanted to breathe easily so I followed the directions then placed more beads in the locket. You can really smell the peppermint so that was good for me for deep breathing.

Now I did have a problem, because I had no clue essential oils can irritate the skin if they are not diluted or if the skin area is sensitive, After I rubbed the beads in my hand I was left with a burning sensation on my hand. I did not understand what was going on so I immediately washed it off but the sting remained. So I looked it up online and it said once you get in contact with a pure essential oil like peppermint or any other pure oil, do not wash it off with soap and water, rub your hands or the affected area with a carrier oil, like coconut, olive almond, jojoba ECT and the burn should go away.

Well, I did that a couple of times and thankfully the sting went away in time but never again will I make that mistake. So, I suggest the company put a warning label as to wear gloves when doing this or dilute the oils when using it for the spheres. The instructions it came with said to place scented beads in jar or hands but still no warning on the hazards with direct pure oils on the hands.

Other than that, the locket “Sweet Heart” is very unique and pretty and it displays really whimsical and  beautifully on the neck and I just have to handle with care next time when dealing with the oils I will be using it with, thankfully with the perfume I had no issues.

Cost: $52.00

The Nina Box Party Queen Cuff Bracelet

Leave a Comment


Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

The Party Queen Austrian crystal rose gold plated cuff bracelet by Qianse and Nina Box is simply gorgeous.
The detailing on this bracelet is so beautiful and elegant and it looks way more expensive than it really is.
Each multicolor crystal is placed and balanced beautifully and the alloy bangle cuff has a unique design and back clasp.
I have a small wrist so I didn't need to unlock the bask clasp, I just slid it on and although, the bracelet fit loose, it did not slide off .
And I can choose to wear it on my forearm as well a little higher than my wrist for an added touch of style.
The packaging is very classy, it comes in a white box and the word Nina Box is written on it which makes this bracelet a wonderful and luxurious gift.
The pictures below only capture some of it's beauty, the real beauty is better in person.
You can style this fabulous cuff bracelet from Amazon for $25.99.

So Princess Like

Leave a Comment
Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

I felt like royalty when I wore this gorgeous dark blue Swarovski elements crystal jewelry set.
The pieces were heavy and when I first tried them on they did feel a bit awkward on but then I got used to it.
The design is very princess like and the set combines beautifully.

The packaging was not that interesting because they come in 3 baggies in the box which seemed tacky because this set is so exquisite.

My suggestion would be, have a bigger box where the pieces can have spots for them and lay flat and look appealing for gift giving.

But other than that, the set is gorgeous, the pieces sparkle and can be worn with fancy or casual attire like I wore it in the pictures below.

I had on a casual dress but this jewelry set from Qianse gave it royal appeal with elegance, beauty, class and sophistication.
You can find this regal set on Amazon for $49.99

Cate and Chloe has surprised me again with another one of their jewelry boxes.
Here's my former post on Cate and Chloe to get familiar with this cool monthly sub box and their prices (click here

This month and every day is very special and women all over the world should be honored for their strength, beauty and bravery when coming face to face with breast cancer or any type of C word.
I honestly hate the C word but I know many who has kicked it in the butt and has won the fight! and a few family members who lost their battle to it, but in my eyes they were Victors!

Cate and Chloe will be donating 15% of all sales from the October VIP subscription program to the American Cancer Society to help find a cure.



So, what's in my pink box for the month of October?

Tada! These cute little flashy CZ hoop earrings called the Joan Hero Hoop Earrings.

Little in size but bold in style! The Joan earrings with their double strand of cz stones will give you just that little boost of confidence you need to be an everyday hero!

  • Clasp earrings
  • Retail value: $99.00


    These little hoop earrings are very beautiful and delicate and yes tiny but they actually fit my lobe and look sweet and stylish. 

    The next item I got was a cute gold plated pendant called the Madison Strength Chevron Ladder Necklace. 



    From the Cate and Chloe site:

Featuring a 30 inch chain complete with 5 arrow bars, the Madison Chevron Ladder Necklace is a sure head turner! Want to make a statement without the bulk? This piece is for you!

    The Cate and Chloe September VIP Box

    Leave a Comment
    Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

    Last month I reviewed the jewelry sub box Cate & Chloe. If you want in depth details on Cate & Chloe please click here on that post to get the deets and prices:) 

    I was honored to be asked again to review their September box.
    It was a total surprise to me what this box entailed.
    So let's get started…


    The September Cate & Chloe box included 2 pieces of jewlery and a brush roll with brushes.

    The first piece again comes in their signature boxes with their logo and black ribbon.


    Aren't these beautiful!
    These are the Ashlyn "Nature" Pearl Leaf Earrings.
    From the site:
    The most delightful mix of trendy and timeless.A small leaf design topped off with a cultured pearl. This classic, delicate piece is a new Cate&Chloe must-have and is sure to class up any outfit while showing off your fashion expertise. 

    Product Specifications:
    • Gold plated drop earrings
    • Leaf design with pearls
    • No backings
    • $ 79.00
    These gold toned earrings are very delicate and beautiful. And I like the way they looked on my ears. They felt very dainty.


    The second Cate & Chloe piece is a bracelet called the Mila Dillgent 3 Layer Gold Bracelet.
     From site:
    Chic, charming, and the perfect layering accessory. Featuring 3 chord strands each with an elongated curved cubic prism, this geometrically alluring bracelet is right on the mark with today's trends. Modern, simple, and easy pairing with your favorite gold jewelry!
    Product Specifications:
    • Gold plated bracelet
    • Lobster clasp closure
    • 3 strands
    • $ 59.00


    This bracelet is really pretty and it fit my wrist nicely.
    I did find while wearing the bracelet that the curved cubic prisms moved a lot and ended up in the bottom of my wrist, which was kind of a bummer for me.
    Maybe if my wrist was bigger it would have stayed in place but it's not so it moves.
    Regardless, it's a pretty classy piece.



    In the pics below, I'm styling Ashlyn on my ears and Mila on my wrist:)



    Now for the "perk of the month" for all the subbed Vip Cate & Chloe members.
    Last month it was a Sally Hansen Nail polish but this month it's a beautiful 6 piece pink brush set with the Cate & Chloe logo on each barrel. 

    The brushes are nice and fluffy but I found the bristles to be flat which is different because I'm used to fluffy face brushes to have a rounded shape unlike these that are flat from the face brushes to the eyeshadow brushes. 

    These will definitely work for concealer, foundation and lid application with eyeshadow but none was in the set for blending the shadow. 

    Also in the set, there is an eyebrow comb/brush, an eyeliner brush which is very nice with dense bristles, and a small concealer brush as well.
    The set is nicely stored in a Cate & Chloe brush roll with hot pink interior pockets and a hot pink ribbon.
    Overall, this is a nice brush set but it's not the best out there but they still do their job and they are soft and not scratchy at all.






    So there you have it! The Cate & Chloe September box.
