For this post, I wanted to share with you guys my first order from BaubleBar! BaubleBar is an online shop full of relatively inexpensive fashion/costume jewelery (you can find them at http://www.baublebar.com/). They had partnered with Stila this holiday season and released some gift sets with Stila makeup, a piece of BaubleBar jewelery, and a $10 gift card to use on the site. I was lucky and snagged a set for half off, so I only paid $16 for three mini Stila lip glazes, a full sized Kitten eyeshadow single, a rose gold bracelet, and a $10 gift card. The gift card was a legit gift card, too! There weren't any restrictions or anything on using it (so it wasn't like a "$10 off of $50" coupon or anything), so it was a pretty nice deal.
Even though this is my first time ordering from BaubleBar, I was familar with the company before I got the Stila x BaubleBar set. They have partnered with subscription boxes in the past by sending a piece of jewelry and a discount code or gift card. BaubleBar does sell pretty reasonably priced items, but it's never really interested me enough to make a purchase because I don't tend to wear the much jewelery (even though I'd like to start wearing more) and if I do buy jewelry, I buy it from Forever 21. Because $3 earrings. Also, I'm probably going to keep changing up how I spell "jewelery"; I'm not a very good speller (I learned to read phonetically) and apparently there are at least three different ways to spell it and I just accept whatever Firefox says is right. Since I wanted to come as close as possible to $10 (but without going under), I browsed the sale section. There were some nice pieces on sale, and I had my eye on a few, but I decided to wait until after New Years in case there would be any more sales. And there were! 20% off of the sale price! Unfortunately, the items I had my eye on had sold out before I was able to purchase anything, so I ended up with something completely different. And I'm actually happy I did since I think I like what I ended up with even more!
Overall I am very, very pleased with my first BaubleBar order! Everything was easy, my order processed and shipped to me quickly, my earrings were packed well and arrived safe, there are a lot of extra details and touches that make things feel more luxe; if I ever have a need for fashion/costume jewlery of a higher quality than from Forever 21, I will definitely purchase again from BaubleBar!
