Everything this month shipped in a large bag since one of the items was a bit awkward.

Cover Girl Active Yoga Mat

I have a yoga mat somewhere in my house but I don’t use it.  We have carpet in our living room so I don’t tend to slip when attempting yoga or pilates.  I’m still happy to get another one though.  They are good to have on hand if I decide I want to get more serious about doing either of them.

Cover Girl Active Flat Resistance Bands 3 Pack

This set includes heavy, medium, and light resistance bands.  I do not have any of these in my life and have been using some at my gymnastics so I think I can put these to use and work out a few times at home.

20170515_173750

This is a fringed shawl style poncho.  It has a great geometric pattern on it and I love the colours.   It will be a nice addition to a plain tee and jeans for an evening out in summer.

This makeup bag/pouch is probably my favourite thing from this month.  It is really big and you could easily get all you need for a weekend away in here.  The back is faux croc patterned.

This giant ring makes me fell like a superhero.  It is so big it goes from knuckle to knuckle on my middle finger.  It also looks slightly like one of those bottle opener rings for men.

20170515_174020

This is a really pretty keychain.  I like the blue geode and it’s not super heavy either.  I don’t actually need any more keychains but I may have to switch one out because I think this one is great.

20170515_174127

There are three sets of earrings on this card.  The round ones are each a pair and the teardrops are the last pair.  I have used most of the earrings that they have sent out so I’m sure these will have the same fate.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so there is no way to value them.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that is a great find!

L.V.Kiki March 2017

L.V.Kiki is a monthly subscription box of 4-6 fashion accessories.  You can either sign up for the plans or if you want to see what type of things they send out you can order a one-off trial box.  The boxes may include jewelry, shoes, scarves, gloves, hats, legwear, belts, and hair accessories. Boxes start at $19.00 per month and shipping to here was less than $1.00 per month.  I was in the market for an accessories box and after finding a discount code for this one I got it at a great price. Shipping is always super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

This month was a fairly square box that showed up.  I could see a hat off the top but everything else was hidden.

20170308_174852

Since it was on the top I guess we’ll start with the hat.  It has a velcro adjustable back and a Navajo pattern for the front piece.  I’m not sure if this is trendy or not but I’ll wear it around the yard or camping and it will be fine for that.

Next out was a grey and white glasses case.  There was not a pair of glasses inside, so that’s a wee bit sad but it doesn’t hurt to have extra cases around the house.  Between my actual glasses and any sunglasses that I might relocate from last year, I can put this to use.

There was a smaller organza bag in there and inside it was three items.  We have a horizontal cross necklace, with “diamonds” on the cross.  I’ve seen this style around for a few years now and think it’s nice so I’m happy to get this.  Next is an owl keychain.  It has a pink stone for a body, diamonds for a head and eyes, and silver eyes and feet.  Last out of this bag is a blue and diamond bracelet.  The blue parts are patterned to look like woven rope.  Some of the paint has chipped off, showing the silver base below.  It doesn’t look too bad though and I may use this as we get closer to summer.

There was also a big bag of goodies.  Inside that one, we have a ginormous pair of silver hoops.  I don’t think the picture does them justice but they are big enough to sit just above my shoulders when I put them on.  There is a pair of blue and silver drop earrings.  I had received a pair of these in pink a few months ago and love them.  I am very happy to get another pair in a different colour.  The dragonfly hair clip will be good to use for work.  It’ll keep my hair out of the way and still add a touch of whimsy to my life.  Lastly, we have an infinity scarf with a pompon fringe.   I love the idea of scarves but I think I look odd when I wear them.  I guess I need to just get over that and leave them on while I leave the house instead of second guessing myself and taking them off.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so there is no way to value them.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that is a great find!

 

L.V.Kiki February 2017

L.V.Kiki is a monthly subscription box of 4-6 fashion accessories.  You can either sign up for the plans or if you want to see what type of things they send out you can order a one-off trial box.  The boxes may include jewellery, shoes, scarves, gloves, hats, legwear, belts, and hair accessories. Boxes start at $19.00 per month and shipping to here was less than $1.00 per month.  I was in the market for an accessories box and after finding a discount code for this one I got it at a great price. Shipping is always super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

The box was a little heavier this month than it can sometimes be so I wasn’t sure what to expect.The first peek gave me a toque and glimpses of things that as yet are a mystery.

20170208_175146First up we have the toque.  It is white with silver threads and a big pom-pom.  It is snug on me but not small and has something in it all toques should have……a fuzzy lining around the bottom.  It stops you from getting that itch and crazy knit pattern transferred to your forehead.

In one of the little bags, this time was a Partners In Crime friendship keychain set and a hair clip.  The keychains don’t seem like something trendy and I don’t really care to have them in the box.  I like the clip and it holds my hair up so it’s a win.

In the other bag, we have a pair of earrings and a collection of rings.  I think these earrings are very pretty and look forward to wearing them.  They have a thin pink thread looped through the small hoops on the earring and a pink rhinestone on the top.  They rings have a wide variety of sizes so they fit on many of my fingers.  Usually, at least one of them is crazy small and goes to the girls but this time they all fit somewhere.  There are seven rings in total.

20170208_175504I think this is the first time I’ve received a purse from them.  They’ve sent me bags before but never a purse.  This one is a good size for going out when I don’t need to have the “mom purse” full of anything I could possibly ever need.  Inside it has two smaller pouches inside that would hold my phone and a pack of gum.  It will hold my wallet as well and a few other essentials.  It has a long strap so you can wear it crossbody.

20170208_175540This wide pleather belt is headed straight for the donation bin.  It does fit but it is so far from anything I would ever wear that there is no point in keeping it.  If I had a tiny waist and a penchant for dresses then I could pull this off.  Since none of that happens in the real world, this will go far away from me.

20170208_175629I hate leggings.  They are not made for people who are not size 0.  I don’t know if these will even fit…they are a M/L but the waistband is less stretchy than the material itself is.  Who wears a rose floral pattern out in public, though???

20170208_175653This scarf is redeeming the box for me.  It is an infinity scarf and has three colours knitted together.  It doubles up perfectly and fits close to my neck so it’ll keep me warm.  It is thick and if it had matched the toque it would be perfect.  As it is, it does match a few other outer gear items I have so it will be put to use tomorrow.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so there is no way to value them.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that is a great find!

 

 

 

L.V.Kiki December 2016

L.V.Kiki is a monthly subscription box of 4-6 fashion accessories.  You can either sign up for the plans or if you want to see what type of things they send out you can order a one off trial box.  The boxes may include jewelry, shoes, scarves, gloves, hats, legwear, belts, and hair accessories.

Shipping was super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

This box changes size every single month.  You never know what type of products you’re going to get and as such it varies.  Everything inside this month looks cozy.

20161208_175242

This is a very long, rectangular scarf.  The colour is gorgeous and it has a subtle pattern woven in.  It will be nice to wear to work and will add a pop of colour to my mostly grey and black wardrobe.

20161208_175355

Next up were these super warm and thick slipper socks.  They have grippers on the bottom.  I can’t wait to put these on when my holidays start and not take them off for three weeks.

20161208_175405

This toque matches the colour of the scarf but is made for outside not inside.  The “fur” pompom matches my coat hood.  I don’t have a nice toque so this is a good thing to find in the box.

20161208_175433

How much fun are these????  I’m going to forget that I saw them for sale in Value Village today and just love how fantastic they are.  They are right up my alley.

20161208_175444

There are only a couple of pieces of jewelry in the box this month. These drop earrings are gold and wine coloured to match the scarf.  I’ve really liked most of the earrings that they’ve sent me and these ones should be no exception.  The have good heft and I know I’ll be using them.

This in one that I don’t think will get much use from me.  This is a two-finger ring.  I like the pattern and colour but the fact that when it’s on I can’t move the two fingers that it’s on is a problem.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so I found a few of them on their site.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that was a great find!

Shipping was super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

20161011_141246 20161011_141258

The box this month was bigger than a few of them have been and only had the branded tape on it, instead of the whole box being branded.  It is beautifully packed as always and things inside looked delightful.

20161011_141324

Once I pulled it all out I could see things a bit better.

20161011_141339

This is so gorgeous!! It is a shawl/vest and just stunning.  I own nothing like this and originally thought it was just a scarf.  It is soft and warm and the fringe makes me smile.  So happy with this right now.

20161011_141426

This scarf is a big square.  It is in good neutrals of grey, beige, and white.  I still struggle to wear scarves properly but I like having the option of many of them.  I guess I need to Google ways to style them and go from there.

20161011_141450

This card has some small diamond studs and diamond square earrings.  I’m not too fond of the diamond shaped ones but I like the studs.  I have two sets of holes so I’m always looking for things to pop in the second set.

20161011_141456

I’m not sure about this pair of earrings.  They hang from one side of the V and it’s the same one on both so one will look backwards on your ear.  They are lined with small diamonds and would be quite pretty of they went both ways.

20161011_141514

There is a set of three rings this month.  One is a flat gold band that is tall, which is different.  The next one has a triangle shape in it.  It works if I wear it with the point up to the top.  The smallest one  has a small vee filled with diamonds.  It fits on my pinkies so I guess that’ll be where I wear it.

20161011_141541

Last in the box was this gold necklace.  I guess the theme of the box was “V”.  This is a cute necklace and will join my rotation of ones that are good for work.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so I found a few of them on their site.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that was a great find!

Shipping was super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

20161108_142559 20161108_142631

This box ships in varying boxes depending on what you are getting each month.  At the very least it’ll have branded packing tape on it, but some months it’s the whole box that’s branded.

20161108_142703

They don’t do an info card but everything comes packed in little bags and is tagged with the L.V.Kiki name.

20161108_142727

First up is this beautiful infinity scarf.  You can’t tell from the picture but it has silver threads woven in as well.  It is not horribly thick but just a nice weight that’ll keep you warm, and look great too!

20161108_142957 20161108_142800

I guess it’s all about keeping warm this month!  There is a knitted ear band, which has an adjustable button on the back to help it fit most heads.  There is also what might be leg warmers?  Arm warmers? Boot cuffs?  I think I’ll use them for my arms, as they fit and I can’t make any ideas beyond that.  They are nice though!

20161108_144330

There is usually some jewelry and this month is no different.  This is a bracelet with the two silver sides being solid and the beaded parts elasticized to get it on your wrist.  I have tiny wrists and this fits me well, so that’s a win!

20161108_144339

I really like these earrings!  They are black and silver and while they are long, they are not heavy.  Can’t wait to wear these!

20161108_144356

Lastly there was four rings.  The feather one seems to be a big tread right now so that’s cool.  The other ones are a set of three with a star, moons, and one with the turquise and “diamonds”.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so I found a few of them on their site.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that was a great find!

Shipping was super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

20160908_194401

Well I couldn’t see much of anything opening the box so the anticipation hung around for a minute more.

20160908_194434

I think it’s great that these guys send out hats.  Not to many other boxes do.  This is a black felt hat and I’ll need to gently steam it to get out the slight bend that packing it in a box gave it.  It fits my head and is a nice hat for fall.

20160908_194520

Next out we have a pair of black studs.  These are okay and will go with the bracelet they sent last month as well.  These are bigger than something I would normally wear that isn’t dangly so they’ll put me out of my comfort zone.

20160908_194529_001

This is a jeweled bracelet.  The back is a pleather band with two snaps for adjusting it on your wrist.  I like the way this looks on me and the smaller of the settings fits, so it doesn’t twist around.

20160908_194621

This is a hair clip.  It looks like it’ll get tight enough to hold my fine hair.  It has teeth in the top to grip and the clip goes across the whole thing.

20160908_194731

This is the greatest thing in the box!  It might be the greatest thing I’ve received all month actually.  It is a poncho shawl and it is going to work with me!  It is freezing in my office and half the time I keep my coat on.  This is wonderful and big enough to wrap around and covers all the way past my backside.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so I found a few of them on their site.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that was a great find!

Shipping was super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

20160808_194431 20160808_194634

This turns up in a different box every month.  I never know what’s going to be in it or how big it will end up being.  They pack things into little bags if they can or sometimes it’s just under the tissue.

20160808_194724

My first thought on pulling these out of the box was that they are so not for me.  I changed my mind once I had them on.  Maybe the distance from my head made them seem less out there.  They will be good with a pair of jeans for a night out, not so much for just running around even though I were thongs all the time in the summer.

20160808_195100 20160808_195106

You really never know what you’re going to pull out of this box.  This is a small glass trinket box.  It is velvet lined and will join the other glass plates and things on my dresser for catching stuff I remove at the end of the day.

20160808_195135

A summer staple, some footie socks for those super low shoes.  I like that these ones are not just the nylon ones that make my feet cry.  These are almost actual sock like.

20160808_195210

I’m always a little iffy on statement jewelry, not because I don’t like it but I’m just never sure if I can pull it off.  This necklace is very summery and has a good heft to it.  It will match a few of my shirts so that’s another bonus.

20160808_195235

This set falls into the same category as above.  I will more that likely wear the bracelet but the earrings seem a bit much.  I don’t have a real need to go so big and in your face but one never knows.

20160808_195320

This is soooo useful!  It’s one of those bracelets that holds a hair elastic so you don’t get those marks on your wrists.  It makes having a spare hair tie into a fashion statement.  Very happy to get this.

20160808_195332

I am also thrilled to get more of these headbands!  I think they are a great way to get away with wearing a headband at work.  They do the job and look professional enough that no one thinks you just tossed your hair into the easiest thing you could.

20160808_195403 20160808_195421

I need a new one of these!  I am using a few small ones and this one is large enough to hold all my makeup and face goo and whatever else I think I might be needing.  I like the polka dots too.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so I found a few of them on their site.  I have a few misses with items in these boxes but it’s just one of two of the things, never a whole box.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that was a great find!

Shipping was super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

20160707_174321 20160707_174343

Every time I get a box from these guys it’s a different shape and size.  They really do seem to match their shipping needs to each months offerings.

20160707_174354 20160707_174401

There is not an info card but just a little note letting you know you can tag them in multiple media outlets.

20160707_174423

Peeking inside…..its a hat!

20160707_174525

Getting it all out reveals a bunch of little bags again!  I like that it’s a bunch of surprises inside the surprise.

20160707_174940

First out was the Trilby Hat.  This is for sale on their site for $6.00.  I love hats but bigger hats are more my style.  This is a nice hat and fits me, but only just.  I don’t think I have a big head but for some reason this makes my head look fat.  Maybe I’ll try it again with a different hair style.

20160707_174711

This is a set of eight rings.  This is also $6.00 on the site.  They are varying sizes and styles and give you a good assortment of various trends.  I like them.

20160707_174744

These diamond studs came out next.  They have a center stone surrounded by a ring of stones.  These are not something I would normally pick out but they should be okay.

20160707_174810

I love this cuff!It is very heavy and fits me well.  It is a gold leaf with a white wash.  It has a hinge closure and I will get a ton of use out of it.

20160707_174903

 

This is a sparkly lanyard.  It feels like a fake suede backing and has square sequiny glitters on the front.  It has both a key ring and clip.  The loop is large enough that you could slip it over your neck if you wanted to.

20160707_174929

Lastly there was a pink wristlet/makeup bag.  It is big enough to hold quite an amount of stuff.  It has a full zipper on the top and the strap is removable.  I have a ton of bags but they wear out fast and it’s good to have spares.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so I found a few of them on their site.  The rest I don’t have a value for. I got a whole crapload of items and this month, only the hat is a bit of a downer.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that was a great find!

L.V.Kiki June 2016

Shipping was super quick and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

20160610_200611

The shipping box this came in this month is huge.  I couldn’t think what would require so much space but it turns out the box was mostly air.

20160610_200727 20160610_200735

They did throw a card in there but it just wants you to enjoy your box and remember to share it.

20160610_200758 20160610_200821 20160610_200901

Here’s the parcel out the box, unwrapped, and laid out.  It’s so full of treasures!!!!!

20160610_200952

First up is this cute little trinket plate.  It does remind you not to use it for food but I don’t think anyone would make that mistake.  I love the saying and this will end up on my dresser for rings and things.

20160610_201044

This is a bandana-style headband.  It feels slightly loose on y head but maybe if my hair was down it would fit better.  This is a style I really like so I hope I can either make it work or tighten it up.

20160610_201143

Two cards of earrings are getting me five pairs.  These are all small stud types and the ones on the left are silver while the right are gold coloured.  These are all something I would wear and since I have two piercings I am usually looking for smaller tyles to wear in the second ones.

OMG  I love this necklace! The double bars are fabulous and the sparkle in the upper one is just yes.  I’m so happy right now.

This is a set of three rings.  Two of them are very small, which is okay for me as I have thin fingers but I can’t see them fitting most people even as pinky rings.  The last one is a gold toned band that seems to be about a size 7 so more of a standard.  The one with the “diamond” probably will go to the girls but I will wear the other two.

Is this not the most ridiculous glasses case you have ever seen??? Or possibly the most pimp.  It is gold glitter covered in pink fishnet.  It is also big enough for more than one pair of glasses.  Inside was a pair of aviator shades.  They have pink accents and are not a pair I would ever pick out for myself.  I have received a few pairs of sunglasses this summer so far and these are a close second for best pair.

Lastly is a large tote.  It is black pleather and has booth shoulder straps and a large single strap.  The inside has a really good dragonfly print that I enjoy.  There are no pockets or zippers inside but as I’ve been in the market for a new purse this might just fit the bill.

All of the items come with the L.V.Kiki brand tags on them so I cannot find pricing. I got a whole crapload of items and the only thing I may not use is one of the rings.   It almost seems like a steal at the prices I paid.  If the rest of my boxes are as good as this one was for me I will be more than happy.  I think this will be one of those boxes that was a great find!
