JEWELMINT: Lady Lioness


On Friday I got 2 packages in the mail!  *yippeeeeeeeeeeeee!*  I love getting mail!  Haha. One of the two things I got was my very first JewelMint order!  I've been registered with JewelMint for quite a while now, but hadn't ordered anything because I was still unwilling to pay a whole $29.99 for a piece of jewelry (I'm used to paying $5 or LESS at Forever21 or something...).  Some time in December I opened up a typical eNewsletter from JewelMint and they were offering a 50% off discount!  I immediately scoured the sight and ordered something!  Though everything costs $29.99 (a bit steep in my opinion) the site does VERY well, and things always sell out VERY quickly.  That being said, as soon as I saw the Lady Lioness cuff bracelet I knew I HAD to have it and have it I did!  It was like 3am, and this little dandy DID NOT hesitate to crawl out of bed (I was on my iPad) and grab her plastic haha.  Anyway...




I LOVE JewelMint's packaging!  This may not be important to other people, but for some reason the way that something is packaged means A LOT to me.  Of course the product itself is of upmost importance, but I think it's nice when the packaging is also up to snuff.  Putting a bow on it (so to speak) just gives it that extra touch of fabulousness (is this a word?).

How cute is this box?  Srsly??  The cuff came in a soft (faux) velvety bag, and under a black sponge in a durable box.  Your jewels are guaranteed to arrive in one safe piece.


And here she is.  Lady Lioness.  Originally, I thought that this cuff was going to be a darker brown colour.  I think at the time I ordered it, the photos on the website made the cuff look dark brown.  When I read the reviews a lot of people were saying that their bracelets were a LOT lighter in colour; the bracelet is more of a taupe-ish grey colour.  Since then, JewelMint has updated the photos of this bracelet to now reflect it's true colour.
I love this bracelet.  And I am SO glad that it is this light greyish colour rather than a dark brown.  This colour just makes this bracelet easier to wear on an everyday basis -- which I intend to because it's just so cute!

Have any of you tried JewelMint?  What are your thoughts?  I still don't think I'd order anything for the full price.  Here goes to skipping the month until another great discount comes up!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  It's Monday tomorrow...Oy Vey...
