This one goes out to my March Birthday Girls!
(if your birthday was last month, don't worry, I didn't forget about you, go HERE)

Shopbop has a ridiculous amount of Aquamarine inspired items out there right now, and it's making me seriously jealous that this isn't my birthstone. I think these earrings and one of these bags need to be mine, like, yesterday. ALSO was I the only one that didn't know Hunter made flats? Whaaaaaat?

March girls: here's what I've got for you:
birthday list for march birthday girls

THE KATE SPADE STUDS: you see them everywhere on this blog, and there's a reason for it. They go with everything, they are totally affordable, and they are the CUTEST gift to give (including to yourself).

THE MM6 BACKPACK: this bag is currently 30% off- and is the most awesome shade of aquamarine. Plus it's convertible to be a crossbody or a backpack- so....two birds, one stone.

THE KENNETH J LANE NECKLACE: this necklace WILL be mine- and it should be yours too. This is the kind of statement necklace that when you wear it to a wedding, everyone is in awe of how different and gorgeous it looks. Guarantee no one else will be wearing it (unless you're at the same event I'm at ;-) )

THE SHE+ LO BAG: This bag comes in 3 colors but I am loving the hue shown above. If you're a March birthday, TREAT YO SELF to this baby. 

THE HUNTER FLATS: i'll say it again, did anyone else know that Hunter Boots made flats? Whaaat? Diggin' these aqua beauties.

THE KSNY PASSPORT HOLDER: If you go on a lot of trips- for sure get this for yourself- BUT if you're going to a wedding this summer and you know the couple is going on an international honeymoon- what an AWESOME gift to give the bride, no? 

THE ESPADRILLES: This is totally a must-have Spring shoe. Comfy, casual, cute. And the color options: AH! Of course, for you March gals I went for the aquamarine color- but if this isn't your jam there's about 40 others to choose from here. 

Oh- for the shoes- worried they might not be the right size? Shopbop has FREE shipping and FREE returns within 15 days- so if they aren't perfect- there is no risk at all in paying for shipping!

Okay March birthday ladies-what gift are you getting yourself for your birthday?
Bonus points if it's something in the list above!

Alright guys:

Time for my RocksBox review! You've probably seen a good amount of people posting about Rocksbox on Instagram- but I'm here to answer some common questions- HONESTLY. 

If you're not interested in me blabbling, here's the quick quote:
- Rocksbox is like Netflix for jewelry - and to get a free month, signup at & use code "beautyandbeardxoxo"? -

Okay, here's the long version:
FREE month of Rockbox using code beautyandbeardxoxo

Rocksbox really is like Netflix for jewelry.
You get 3 pieces in the mail, you wear them as long as you want...and then you return them.

Here's how you start, to assure you actually get pieces you LIKE.

1. You take a style quiz. There's a bunch of quick questions to narrow down what kind of jewelry you like - gold/silver, necklaces/earrings/bracelets/rings, etc. 

2. You USE the comment sections! There are places everywhere to give specific details on what you like, and drop hints about pieces you want :)
3. You use the Wishlist- you can request specific pieces of jewelry you want. That plain and simple!
4. You leave feedback! With each box you get, there's a spot to leave feedback for each piece - likes, dislikes, comments.

The most common questions I've been getting have been about shipping- so here they are, with answers:

1. Can you keep 1 piece for longer and send the others back? Unless you buy it, no. It kind of sucks if you really like a piece, but you have to send all 3 back at a time. BUT like I said, if you like a piece a lot, you can buy it for 20% below retail price!

2. Is shipping fast? Yes! My first box actually took a long time to come- but I found out it was my post office's fault, not Rocksbox! Since that first one, the shipping has been super fast. When I sent my last box back and got my new one- it only took a total of 4 business days!

3. Is shipping actually free? Yes. Shipping and Returns are totally free!

4. What are the hidden costs? Hah. I asked this question too. There actually aren't any- using "beautyandbeardxoxo" by March 19th and you get the first month free - and then after that it's $19/month. Shipping and returns are free!

5. What if you get something in your box you don't like? This has only happened to me once- I got a necklace I didn't totally love- so I just put a comment on the return form when I sent the box back! 

6. Are you getting paid for this? Hah, not to post about this, no. But like any referral program nowadays, you bet your sweet bottom I get perks. Use code "beautyandbeardxoxo" and YOU get a free month, and I get credit towards Rocksbox. BUT WAIT. Before you get all high and mighty- once YOU sign up for Rocksbox, you'll get a code too- which means YOU can pass it along to friends/family/coworkers, and get the exact same perks :)

7. Is it all gaudy statement jewelry? NO! There is something for everyone. I've gotten bold, bright Loren Hope pieces as well as delicate, simple Gorjana pieces. You get whatever you specify in your comments!

8. Is it worth it? For me, for right now, yes. As we're approaching wedding season I have a TON of weddings coming up (and bridal showers and bachelorette parties) and it's going to be awesome to have a constant flow of new jewelry to wear! Honestly, I don't know if it's something I'd do year round, but right now, it's worth it!

If you are still skeptical, send me an email : beautyandbeard(at)gmail(dot)com.

So don't wait! 
Use code "beautyandbeardxoxo" by March 19th for your first box for FREE!
