Winter Jewels with Rocksbox Jewelry Subscription + Get a FREE box!

I have been loving Rocksbox for outfitting my jewelry this Holiday season. It is such an awesome way to wear designer jewelry with out the designer price tag. Rocksbox is a membership-based jewelry service that allows you to borrow a curated box of designer jewelry before you buy it.  For only $19/mo you can choose from 30+ on-trend designers including Kendra Scott, Gorjana, House of Harlow, and Loren Hope. You will then receive a box of three designer jewelry pieces based off your style profile. It is such a fun and affordable way to rock new jewelry!

Rocksbox is giving my readers the first month FREE! Just use code: monroemisfitxoxo at checkout to get your first month FREE and $10 in Shine Spend cash! Sign Up HERE.
There is no obligation and you can cancel anytime.

How it works: You keep your box of jewelry and wear them for as long as you like, after you return them a new set of three will be sent to you. You can swap out your jewelry as many times as you want in a month. If you love a a jewelry piece so much that you want to purchase, just keep it when you return your box. You will be billed at the price shown on your packaging list which is always 20% off retail. 

I absolutely love Kendra Scott jewelry and that was my main draw for signing up for Rocksbox. They have sooo much Kendra! As much as a I love jewelry I often find myself only wearing certain pieces a few times before I get bored and move on. That is what makes Rocksbox so appealing. You get plenty of wears out of your jewelry and then return it for new jewelry all for only $19. It really is a great value considering how much can be spent on buying new designer pieces each month. Every month $10 Shine Spend is awarded to your account and that can increase if you invite your friends. If you want to keep an item your shine spend cash goes towards it, giving you an even better deal.

Be sure to complete your style profile and make a wishlist. I could tell my Stylist really took that in to account when selecting jewelry for me. You can even request pieces you love on their instagram by commenting #wishlist.

In my Rocksbox this month was a Kendra Scott Necklace I had put on my Christmas List! Are they mindreaders? Is Santa working there? The Elisa in Platinum Drusy ($65/$52 Insider price). This necklace is stunning. Platinum drusy and bold rhodium framing combine in this delicate pendant necklace.

Elisa has been in heavy rotation since I received it. It is the perfect necklace to wear over the Holidays. Whether its dazzling up a casual outfit or being the centerpiece to a fancy dress this simple smoldering pendant shines in shades of gray. I am definitely keeping this one! It comes to only $42 with shine spend, that is better than any sale price at Neimans or Nordstrom!

Kendra Scott Rayne Silver Necklace in Slate ($80/$64 insider price) is another necklace I have been coveting. It has a cool slate stone with silver tasseled detailing, This classic long pendant necklace pairs beautifully with so many outifits, especially shades of Winter white and gray.

Pictures do not even capture how glorious this Slate pendant is, the pearly gray stone such a beautiful multi-faceted look to it. I want to keep this one too! Choices!

Sophie Harper Pave X Ring in Gold ($48/$38 Insider price) is a beautiful statement ring. The design is simple and the stones beautifully enwrap this glimmering geo style ring.

I have worn this a couple times now and its such a delicately pretty, well crafted ring. I don't wear my statement rings more than a few times usually, so now that I have loved it I can leave it. How great is that? 
That's my Rocksbox for December! I am so so happy with my Stylist's choices and plan on keeping at least one of these pieces. Can't wait to see what's inside my next Rocksbox!

If you want to try Rocksbox for yourself and outfit your jewelry wardrobe in pretty jewels SIGN UP with my code monroemisfitxoxo at Rocksbox and you will receive a FREE MONTH! + $10 Shine Spend!

My Paula's Choice Skincare Routine & 20% Discount

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Paula's Choice and PRIMP. All opinions are mine.

I have been serious about skincare since a young age. I remember the one and only time I ever slept with my makeup on was when I was 14 and didn't want to get my mascara on my friends washcloths. I stayed awake the whole night because it bugged me so much sleeping with my makeup on and not washing my face. I have always had a dedicated skincare routine but never one that was line specific. With blogging I jump from product to product and sometimes expensive product to product. Which is why I was happy to switch my whole skincare regimen over to Paula's Choice. I have been using solely their products over the past month and am loving what they are doing for my skin!

Paula Begoun, the founder, is all about truth in beauty, skin care, ingredients, and proven research. The Paula's Choice product line includes something for everyone, acne, rosacea, aging, pores. On their website, you can choose from a menu of skincare concerns you’d like to treat. There is something for every one there!
