Here’s my September subscription box from Helene Jewelry. It came kind of late this time. Apparently they switched to some new software, and the switch caused some issues. I wasn’t notified when it was shipped on September 25, so I had to personally message Elena to find out its status. Once it was shipped, it came to me without any issues, which I consider a good thing. I’ve had enough with postal delays, thank you very much!
Here’s the box and its content itself. The usual pink crinkly paper used for padding is under all the content and was well protected as usual. This box arrived smaller than the previous ones. I don’t mind, though, since a smaller box means less cardboard to used. :)
This was all that was in the box — a Sally Girl nail polish, a Jolly Rancher candy, a Carly black onyx and leather tassel stretch bracelet, and a neon green hair tie.
Here’s a closer shot of the Carly bracelet. I love how the beads are faceted. The black colour was well chosen because black goes with anything. The bit of gold beads accent the bracelet well. I also like how it’s a stretch bracelet, so I don’t have to deal with any annoying clasps. The tassel, which is made of real leather, is a nice addition to this bracelet, and it doesn’t get in the way, which I like.
And here’s a shot of me wearing the bracelet. I like it. It doesn’t feel heavy, but the stones are cold on my wrist now that the weather is cooler! I may have to wear one of my cardigans and then wear the bracelet on top because it’s cold.
This bracelet normally goes for $70.00 USD, but because of the subscription box, it only cost me about $23.75 USD. I’m pleased with this month’s selection.
