{STYLE} BaubleBar's "Nicolette Mason" Mystery Box

I rarely understand or fully relate to that "Christmas Morning" feeling that people so often talk about, being that I was raised Jewish and never actually celebrated Christmas. But, I am an online shopping enthusiast, and I love the feeling of unpacking my boxes and seeing what's inside. It's all the better when what's inside is a bit of a surprise - you know, the way Birchbox or Glossybox or Julep curate and send you a selection each month. Sometimes my Modcloth packages even come with little surprises! 

To be the surpriser, though - there's something really, really exiting about that. I'm a total BaubleBar addict, so when their team approached me and asked if I'd like to collaborate on their new series of Mystery Boxes, featuring 4 Bloggers (MyselfCheetah is the New BlackKendi Everyday, and A Piece of Toast) and their jewelry picks, it was a total no-brainer. The box is $50 and comes with a the Galactic Opal necklace (pictured above, usually retails for $42) and two mystery items that have all received my stamp of approval, (no spoilers, but there's some really good arm candy in the mix). Plus, who doesn't love a statement necklace? It's one of my favorite ways to elevate any simple outfit. Plus, this might just hold you over until Christmas morning actually arrives. Continue...




I've already waxed poetic so many times about the ways in which fashion can be a source of empowerment, but jewelry especially holds a special place in my heart, for obvious reasons. Practically everyone can add a little sparkle and glam, if they're into it. Did you know, by the way, that BaubleBar's selection starts at $14? That sure packs a punch on my Shourouk dreams. Sometimes when you're having a crappy day, all you need to do is throw some sparkle on it.

  5. Ooooh how fun! This might be my first bauble bar purchase as well. I love surprises, and this one is great since I know 1/3 of what I'm getting, and I trust your taste. Now that I know about bauble bar, I'm in trouble. They have such great statement pieces at awesome prices. Love it!

  7. Your pick and style are my favorite of all the blogger boxes, though a Piece of Toast is a close second! I love your pick on that pink book! You know-your aren't supposed to buy opals for yourself, but it is kinda like you picked it out for me! ;)

  11. This was strictly enforced upon me by my grandmother! I don't take it seriously, but I enjoy folk tales and lore, here is a link to one explanation as to the origins of this myth http://www.opalsdownunder.com.au/learn-about-opals/introductory/are-opals-bad-luck

  12. Oh my - let me tell you. BaubleBar is uh-maz-ing. So many of the costume jewelry pieces I've lusted after from other retailers, coughjcrewcough, have ended up on BaubleBar for a fraction of the cost. It's a pretty incredible selection... And I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I probably order a piece a couple times a month.
