LIFE AS I KNOW IT

Have you jumped on the Jewelmint bandwagon?

Hello! Hope all of you are having a fantastic week. I haven't been very productive BUT have been trying to figure out things in the mean time. "Protect the Boss" have been keeping me busy though. heh heh. Cha Mu Won ♡

Here's a post that I've been meaning to do ever since I received my two pieces. Yup! Jewelmint! I'm sure most of you have heard of this company if you follow beauty/fashion gurus on youtube, but incase you havent, Jewelmint is basically an online jewelry subscription company created by actress Kate Bosworth and celebrity stylist Cher Coulter who have collaborated in designing unique pieces of jewelry for $29.99/piece through the inspiration of current fashion trends or basic inspirations from their daily lives.



To begin, you first take a style quiz that will determine the jewelry pieces that will show up in your "showroom" that "best" fits your personal style. From my experience, if you click "show me more", you are able to browse through the rest of the current available pieces. Yes, the price tag of $29.99 may be a bit steep, but for the quality and the designs of the jewelry, I do feel like it's a fair price for most of the items.

Here's their introduction video to get a better feel for what Jewelmint is all about:


But as for my two Jewelmint purchases, I bought the Groupon (USA residents only: click for referral link if you'd like) which was for $25 for 2 pieces of jewelry. Such a steal right? So with the $25, I picked out these two pieces for $12.50 each! It made me a happy camper. heh heh

First, I'll show you guys the packaging. The shipping for both of these items were very speedy and efficient since they do ship from the LA area so I was able to received them in about 3 days.


Nice, black bubble wrap envelope.



Cute, black satin ribbon bow that has an elastic backing for easy removal. Both jewelry boxes that I received were the mint green ones. All boxes have a convenient magnetic flap for easy opening and closing. I've taken a box on a trip to hold all of my jewelry. Definitely great for travel!



Opening of the box: all pieces have a short description printed on the top lid with another piece of padding that lays on top of the jewelry piece for extra cushioning.


Here are the two pieces I picked out:


Eros Earrings: At first, I though these earrings looked a bit creepy, tbh, because of the detailing that made it look like an owl. (lol) But then after doing some research on the piece, I started to really fall in love with it because of the "boho" feel it gives with that rustic silver look. I missed my first chance of getting this piece, but soon after I got my groupon, it came back in stock and I snagged it right away. The detailing is so pretty and it reminds of the Native Americans of the ol' American west. I love pairing these earrings with my crop jean jacket (which I got from goodwill! More details on upcoming post!)


Setting Sun Necklace: I was also weary, at first, of this piece, but again...after seeing it on other people, I started to really like it! It took me awhile to pick this one as well since I wanted to see the new pieces for August, but none seemed to appeal to be. Setting Sun it was! I love the pastel colors here as well and the mixed metal colors of silver and gold. You can't really tell from the picture, but the chain is wrapped around a light blue rope type material. So unique! This piece too reminds me of the ol' American west. Maybe it's because of my influence of Arizona, where my mom was born. heh heh. I still have yet to find the perfect type of top to wear with this necklace...any suggestions? :]

Overall, I was and still am very happy with my Jewelmint purchases The packing and the quality of the jewelry had me sold. I have heard from my friend Kristine, that their customer service is pretty bad, but besides that, i do feel like it's a fun way to try out new pieces of jewelry that won't tarnish or discolor as easily, and that can be saved and worn as classic pieces to jazz up any outfit throughout the years.

Click here for my referral link if you'd like. For all my International readers, Jewelmint is unfortunately exclusive to US residents only. BOO!

Have you tried Jewelmint? What pieces have you picked out? And for my international readers, would you guys be interested in Jewelmint? Let me know in the comments.

And to end this post, the music video from my all-time favorite trio, JYJ. ♡ I was fortunate (and crazy enough) to see these three live in concert numerous times, and am so proud of where they are and how much they have grown. Enjoy! ♥ (Thumbs up for English subs ^^)
