Your Bijoux Box Review – May 2015

Your Bijoux Box is a jewelry subscription box that sends out about 3 pieces per month for around $35 or less depending on how long you want your subscription for. I really like the idea of getting a jewelry surprise every month and I honestly am the type that tends to wear the same stuff over and over so change is a good thing.





They sure pack these little boxes!


Meridian Silver Pendant

Meridian Silver Pendant: Have you ever wanted a pendant necklace for spring but all your hints to the Easter bunny went unheard? Bijoux Box decided that they would make it right with this necklace because no box addicts cravings should be ignored! It is a pretty bold necklace that seems to be getting good reviews. I like the chain a lot. It reminds me of Rapunzel’s hair. I am sure there is some deep Freudian meaning to that but I am not going to dig too deeply into it since it is a Sunday.

They say to wear this with a “neutral flowy jumpsuit” to “channel casual glamour.” Do they mean a skydiving jumpsuit? Because I can do that. 


Pave Convertible Necklace

Pave Convertible Necklace: Either my hands were shaking with excitement or I just take terrible pictures. Sorry for the blur. This is my favorite necklace so far from Bijoux Box because it is dainty and has triangles. And as I asserted in another accessory box review if you make it to summer without a triangle piece of jewelry to wear I truly believe they will take you out to the town square and throw tomatoes and garlic knots at you. The garlic knots wont even have cheese on them!

With this necklace you can decide which strands you want to include. Which is cool. They say it is “three necklaces in one” but actually it is four if you count wearing them all at once. Did I just blow your mind? You’re welcome.

My style tip: Wear just the bottom strand and in the middle of dinner yell “Go Go Gadget Triangles!” while manically attaching the triangle stands. Refer to your server as “Penny.”


Pave Pyramid Studs

Pave Pyramid Studs: I will do my nails when I get around to it but until then I tried to show you without subjecting you to my chipped polish. These Pave studs match the above necklace which is nice because too often I take up precious morning coffee time rushing around trying to find earrings to match a necklace I want to wear. Usually I give up exasperated and end up wearing what I always do. On those days you can catch me casting wistful glances at my reflection wondering if my day would have been any better if I had worn that statement necklace I had wanted to.

Wear with this necklace and see how many times you can drop the work “Illuminati” into a conversation. Point to your earrings subtly each time you say the word.


Watercolour Scarf

Watercolour Scarf: A bonus Mothers Day gift to subscribers. I wonder why they decided to go with the Queen’s spelling for this item. The scarf itself is actually pretty nice and I like that it is light and has a nice upbeat color colour. Their style tip wasn’t very earth shattering, telling me that the scarf “looks beautiful circled around the neck.” Oh, THAT’S where it should go!!!

Wear while at a farmers market. When someone tries to hard sell you on some eggplant tell them you “simply must have a better price because eggplants are your muse!” Flip scarf dramatically as you say it.


Final Verdict: Your Bijoux Box is a fun addition to anyone’s accessory pile. I liked this month’s box a lot and felt all the pieces were wearable and something I could pull off. I also liked that the earrings were matched with another item in the box because sets make everything much easier. It was also novel to have a convertible necklace!

    This looks like a fun box. I really like that scarf, but you know I thought scarfs went around the knees???? hehe. And by golly, who wears ‘flowing jumpsuits???’ Geez. The convertible necklace is nice too.

      I know right?!? I’m wondering who writes the info cards… I want to tell people to wear earring in your ears, and try paring a necklace with a see thru top…

        My mind went elsewhere with Shana’s comment. This is what happens when you receive too many Fantasy boxes 🙂

    The items look beautiful and the scarf is a nice touch. It’s fun when there is a bonus in the box. Now to the fun stuff.

    Oh no! I don’t own any triangle shape necklaces. I also notice a fascination with vegetables in this post. What happened to the goat syndicate. Now it is the Illuminati which made me think of Dan Brown. You better watch out for the goat syndicate especially if you have lots of eggplant lying around.

    I think hand shots are hard to do. I did one for a post on MUT and it looked horrible. Yours look great. I made a fist and it looked like this big meaty fist. I think MUT is the closest I will ever come to blogging which now I can’t do because I can’t find my battery charger!

    And, yes, your day would had been better if you wore that statement necklace. A statement necklace says don’t mess with me. I like all kinds of necklaces, but it seems on the bad days that statement necklace gives a larger than life presence.

    Are you “Elle” or “Another Elle” on the Oui Please MSA thread? Did your box arrive yet? Reading comments reminded me of the concerns I had when the box was launched. This was back in November. I did repost a few of my concerns on the MSA thread. The box launched shortly after the PopSugar Neiman Marcus fiasco. Most people did not want to hear what I had to say. Then everything looked all right for the first two boxes. I do hope they pulled through because it seems that there most of the commenters are yearly subscribers. The irony is that I came close to buying 1.3 because I love lavender. Then I was going to console myself by purchasing the Mother’s Day box because I thought it would have lavender and then I encountered the whole someone stole my credit card number fiasco. Oh well. I need to stop giving my sister the items I don’t want and swap them for a few lavender/pampering french beauty items.

    Now off to find my battery charger so I can post a picture of the Jeremy Lin box on MUT tomorrow if the post office decides to deliver it. I don’t do anything fancy there. Just pictures and describing the items.

      Oh I can’t wait to see your box on MUT!!!

      Darling you simply MUST get triangle bling! ‘They’ are watching ya know!

      I post as Elle on the MSA there are a couple others. I kinda chopped it up with this one chick there on the Oui Please box. Seriously people who think that everything has to be “fun” and “positive” are usually not either things. I get the people don’t like to read the bitching but why not point out something good rather then telling someone not to voice their opinion. Got me all pissed but then I decided to just not engage in the lameness and futility of fighting over the internet with someone who can’t appreciate the lameness of sharing her opinion with everyone while at the same time saying that no one asked for opinions.

      Funny thing is I didn’t even post any negative hahaha. I just believe in other peoples right to do so! I may use her as the backdrop for my oui please post… maybe not. But I get my box tomorrow! I will try to put that review up ASAP.

      LOL So, I think the Goat Syndicate is laying low. The Scarf Mafia is making big moves this month and I think a turf war is about to happen. It is all hush hush stuff, but we here all know about the seedy dealings in the box world!!!

      I need to get a statement necklace that says “Give me a raise!”

        I saw that exchange! I can’t wait to see your review. I still can’t find my battery charger 🙁

        On my to do list 1. Find Charger. 2. Triangle Bling 3. Watch out for the Scarf Mania and the upcoming turf war. 4. Don’t sell eggplant to people wearing scarves.

          4. Buy back up charger!

          Lol I sort of came of like a jerk in the exchange but I 100% meant what I said.

          I will try to get the review out ASAP for sure. It’ll likely be more fun then trying to come up with something to say about something like mascara lol

    • May 23, 2015 at 5:53 am

      PA Anna, I have Panier Des Sens LARGE bar of soap in Blue Lavendar and the Lavendar Sachet I would be willing to put up on the swap board to swap with you. My husband gets headaches from Lavendar. Makes some of this stuff tough.

        Shana – That is generous of you 🙂 Are you sure? I know you are very happy with the box and being able to use all the items. I also have nothing to swap right now until the Nina Garcia hair box arrives on Thursday. Is there anything that interests you? I ordered it mainly for the hair accessory and hair masks. The rest of the items, including the brush, is up for grabs.

        • May 27, 2015 at 2:30 am

          (((hugs))) I don’t mind trading you for them, I put up 3 items, the soap is under one that is not lavender, but it is blue lavender scent, was lazy 🙂 That brush looks like so that sounds good. Set up the swap and when you post the brush I will finish it. You need a spa day. I have been through some pretty horrific mental health stuff with family so can feel the pain.

            Thank you! I only have done one swap so far. I’m confused. I’m not sure how to set up the swap without the brush. I don’t want to post that I have it until I arrives. What if they forget to stick it in the box? I’ll be embarrassed.

          • May 27, 2015 at 2:06 pm

            No problem, just request a swap from me – look up oui please items. Just pick out what you want from me and I will wait until you get and post the brush before I respond back to the swap. No hurry 🙂

            Shana – I can’t comment on our swap!!! I keep trying and it won’t take. Here’s my comment.

            I enjoy your comments too. It all worked out today going to the post office. It was comforting to know it was OK if it did not work out. Your package should arrive on Monday. I included one other surprise that I have not used. It does have fingerprints on it which I tried to wipe off. You’ll see what I mean when the package arrives. It is unused. Enjoy 🙂

            Thanks and I hope they are still sorta funny.

            I figure some food and a lot of wine should add some flavor to what I write. Maybe if I am sober enough I will do a mini post and take you ladies along with me. Though I have to take pics with my lame burner phone. Sad thing is, it seems to be faster than the one I broke!

            Sounds fun. This whole time I was thinking you were enjoying your time with your model. Don’t worry. Your reviews are funny and witty.

            Shana – thank you again for everything! It’s been a crazy June. This is the first quiet moment I had in awhile. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and love all the items. I love the sachet and been using the soap. I used the bath salts while traveling last week. I’m going to use the cleanser today. The eye pencil is a neat color. Plus a curl treatment!!!! I never see them in sub boxes! Thank You! This is a wonderful treat and spa day box 🙂

          • June 7, 2015 at 7:34 pm

            I am so glad to hear it 🙂 That was what it was meant to do. Thank you for all of the return items, they are awesome. This month is just way to busy, the whole year has been that way though. I really like that hairbrush, it makes my hair really silky looking.
