Wantable Intimates Box February 2014 Review

feb14Wantable

Wantable Intimates is a wonderful subscription box that sends out 4-5 premium essentials that are handpicked to perfectly match your preferences. Before you complete your purchase of the box, you fill out a survey that lets them know your loves, likes, and dislikes. Whatever you “dislike” they will make sure to NOT send you, and send you more of your “loves”, so because of this, these boxes are specially packed for everyone!

There is nothing too special about the packaging, a simple little box, and that includes a listing of your items inside. They review your order information and also include the retail value of all items included. This is a great feature because it’s always nice to know the value of the items in your subscriptions!
This month, the total value of my box was $88.00, which is fantastic considering it only cost me $36 bucks.

The first item in the box was a pair of Muk Luks Boot Height Socks
These retail for $15.00
For Christmas I got 2 pairs of Muk Lights tights and I have loved them, so soft!!! Really excited about these socks, will be great for all this crazy freezing weather!

Next, Q-T Intimates Heart Bra Clips (3 pack – clear, black, nude)
These retail for $9.00
These look cuter than the normal circle ones I picked up at the Dollar Tree years back, maybe I can remember to put these to more use this time… (also I cannot find these online, it looks like they were made exclusively for Wantable)

Next we have a set from Kiby’s, the Anastasia Cami & Bikini in green.
The top retails for $34 and the panties for $10.
I have been wearing the cami around the house after work and it is COMFYYYY. So happy about these items : )

Lastly, I found this Wantable Soft Bra in Taupe
This retails for $20.00
I would never (ever) buy this on my own, it’s a one size fits all, but hmmm guess what, one size certainly does NOT fit all, especially in the chest. The color is terrible and I’m not really loving it, however it is pretty soft so I will probably just be wearing it around the house with my pj’s.

Overall, I’m happy with this box as I got more Muk Luks and an amazingly soft and comfy cami!

What I’m Wednesdays {Week 1}

So I thought it would be a fun to have a Wednesday feature, I thought of this one & I hope it works well. Yay!

What I’m….

Wearing ~ Love me my Swedish love Hjalmarsson v-neck & Sperrys : ]

Eating ~ always a plethora of goodness, the other night me & Michael had a super fancy pasta night, using the $48 sauce I got in my excellent Taste Trunk. It was absolutely fantastic!!! The pasta & the sauce were both delicious and I definitely tasted the quality difference between this and my usual on sale for $1 sauce from Target. : )

Listening to ~ I cannot stop listening to Avril’s “Rock n’ Roll”. I am SO EXCITED for her CD {along with Miley’s, Katy’s, Jesse J’s, & Eminem’s}. I am seriously ready to have these CD’s on repeat in my car for the next couple of months as they come out… YAYYYYYYYY! I also just so happen to love the rap single “23”, the tribute to Jordan’s, and even the music video makes me smile. Everyone’s hatin’ on Miley all the time now but I don’t care, I think she’s even more awesome than ever and this music video makes me laugh. That awesome Bulls jersey bikini thing is SO FRICKIN COOL. Needed to be said. And displayed. haha.

Looking forward to ~ along with all the wonderful other subscription services I subscribe to (which I will be starting to review again after a couple month hiatus!!!), I am also getting to try out the Phone Case of the Month! My phone is naked right now, only because I get so tired of my cases, I always want a new or different one, so changing them every month to a new cute designed case is something that I’m certainly looking forward to!! : )

Also, on a random note, I am REALLY trying this month to do every day/photo of the #FMSphotoaday challenge on Instagram for the month of October. Yesterday I started with my #SomethingColorful pic, and today the title was #Light. This is the light that wakes me up in the morning, the sun is soooo bright! (I also realize that I took this picture at 9am, trust me, I was up a lot earlier but this is when I had the chance to snap the pic before I ran off to catch my train!)

Autumn Shopping

photo (11)#fmsphotoaday #SomethingColorful

What could be more positive and fantastic than shopping???

I wanted to make sure to stay full of good vibes, so I thought the best way to start off this fabulous month of October was to do some good shopping. Woooop!

FIRST OFF, to start my day off with awesomeness, I got this fabulous $20 gift certificate for RA Sushi (one of my fav places, sooo good!!!) because it’s my half birthday month! Thanks RA!! : )
(This also means that I need to go there ASAP, which brings me so much joy because I absolutely love everything they have on the menu!! Happy hour what whatttt!!)

NEXT, I realized I had over 10,000 points on my AmEx account… which could only mean that I needed to get another “free” $100 Apple giftcard!! Yayy!! I’ve already gotten so many of these, I absolutely love that I can buy awesome apps for my iMac and of course so many songs in iTunes. I’m a few points shy of a $50 giftcard from my Visa too…. damn, I LOVE reward points! If you aren’t using yours or don’t have a card that offers them… GET ONE!!!

On the online shopping front, I’ve had a cart going on F21 for the past couple of days and still haven’t added the last few items to reach the $50 mark (then it’s free shipping so of course I always feel like I HAVEEE to spend at least $50 haha). The main reason I wanted to buy anything there at all was because of this casual crazy messed up meow kitty cat dress — >

…. I also added tons of jewelry to my bag too. Most of the items are under $4 so it’s easy to keep adding more to your bag, not realizing or even remembering the items I’ve been adding the whole time! Love surprise time!

And then there’s this little ol’ issue that I’ve been dealing with from JustFab… I hate that you have to cancel/decline the month within the first 5 days of the month, otherwise you are charged the $40 fee and basically can’t get your money back — however, the money counts as a credit towards 1 pair of shoes, so it’s not like you’re technically losing anything. Anyway, I’ve had this credit going on my account for 3 months now and still haven’t found a pair of shoes I’ve loved or really wanted/needed, but they just added some new styles and since it’s now boot season, I want a pair of some nice new boots for casual days at work and weekends. Here are some options…. hmmmm….

And last, but certainly not least, I am lusting after this item right meow… the sterling silver beads, the beautiful blue heart, the way it will look fantastic on my wrist… I want it I want it! ; )

PS: My impulsive need to shop also just made me add this, however, this is something that I have wanted and have been looking into for months and months now. The “subscription” type clothing service is called Golden Tote, and I learned all about it by reading reviews from My Subscription Addiction. She has one of my favorite websites and thanks to her I know about so many of the amazing boxes I get… ANYWAY, I am so excited to start this service! For either $49/month with 1-2 items or $149/month with 6-7 items (worth up to $600!!!!), you basically choose two of the items/clothing pieces (I am going to try the $149 option) and then they surprise you with the rest!

You get to choose the first 2 items and I already want these 2 super bad so I am not ULTRA excited to see what else they surprise me with in my very first Golden Tote!!! : )

all love & smiles,
