Box of Style in Hilo–Spring 2017

I am a subscription box addict.  I love getting things in the mail.  I hate shopping. These two factors make me a perfect subscription box customer. One subscription box I have been enjoying is the Rachel Zoe-curated Box of Style If you want to get $10 off your subscription when you subscribe, click on this link to get your discount. The fun styles and things I get in this box help me step out of my normal, slightly conservative style.

This box comes once a season. When you get a box at your front door that greets you with, “Hello Gorgeous,” how can you not be excited to open it up?

It comes with an assortment of things from beauty products to fashion accessories to stationery and more.  Some of the items I get are misses, but there are quite a few hits as well. I love when the box includes jewelry pieces like necklaces, bracelets, and rings.

My daughter took ownership of the Soia & Kyo Olivia Cable knit hat during our trip to the Grand Canyon.

The winter box included a white knit hat that was perfect for me to take on my trip to the Grand Canyon and to Bozeman, Montana.

Spring 2017 Box of Style

This month’s box came with pretty colors and prints.img_4404.jpgAs soon as my daughter saw the water bottle, it was her new favorite bottle.  She was a little sad that she was on spring break because she would have to wait to start using it in school. This BKR glass and silicone water bottle helps us reduce waste by encouraging us to use this pretty refillable bottle to help us stay hydrated. This carryall by Tribe Alive is an exclusive collaboration with Box of Style. The platform for Tribe Alive is to help alleviate poverty among women around the world. This carryall has a cute print and is a great size for my busy schedule, but I felt that the leather looked a little cheap. However, despite that, I think this is the perfect carryall for me to take to the soccer games and track meets that are dominating my weekends for the next few months. I can fit my Kindle, phone, wallet, and even extra spam musubi for my athletes in it.I have a few Stella Artois chalices that I purchased over the holiday season in a gift set, but this chalice that came in the spring box is so pretty.  It has a pretty design that is not found on the Stella Artois chalice that you find at bars or in the store.  Even better, every limited-edition chalice sold helps to provide five years of clean water for one person in the developing world. You can help and get your own special chalice by visiting BuyALadyaDrink.com.  According to the insert, 663 million people around the world lack access to safe water and this crisis affects disproportionately affects women.  By the way, the polish I have on my nails is the Butter London “Piece of Cake” nail polish that came in the spring box. Pretty pale pink–perfect for spring.

box of style earrings

I paired the Adornmonde earrings with my fun, chunky necklace from Beads & Things by Kori.

I love these Adornmonde Ivo earrings. These are fun earrings that have a removable hoop. You can wear the earrings with just the vertical bar or together with the hoop.  If you are feeling really edgy, you can even wear the bar on one side and both the bar and hoop on the other ear.

I haven’t used the pretty red and gold Symbology scarf yet but I plan to keep it.  The pretty colors will be perfect to accessorize my usually monotone outfits. I also haven’t used the Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder. This is supposed to be a great exfoliator and I hope it will give me a healthy Hilo glow.  Living Hilo Style–Rachel Zoe style.
