Astrid & Miyu December Secret Box Review

Posted on January 22, 2014

Hi Guys!

I know it’s about a month late, but I’ve finally gotten round to photographing December’s Astrid & Miyu Secret Box – better late than never hey! If you’ve never heard of Astrid & Miyu, they are a jewellery company who offer a quarterly subscription box – you can check out more details from my previous box reviews here and here.

In Decembers box I received some lovely cards with recipes for plum jam and chocolate chunk pecan cookies – I’ve posted the cookie one below in case you’d liike to try it 🙂

And as a couple of extra Christmassy gifts I received an awesome Jelly Pong Pong eye pencil in Bronze (worth £10.50) and a lovely chocolate (which I ate without thinking so there’s no picture, sorry!)

This Eyeliner and Shadow pencil is in a warm metallic brown, it’s very soft and doesn’t drag the skin at all. This was a lovely unexpected extra gift!

And so onto the jewellery! My first item was the Charm It in Deep Forest bracelet (£19) This is a really dainty and sweet dark green cotton bracelet with a gold tone and diamante encrusted bead. I love this bracelet because it’s so small and pretty, you could easily wear it every day.

Next up was the Anna Karenina Red Necklace (£39) This is a fabulously large statement necklace, with red, orange and clear gem stones.

Lastly I received the Rosy Rock Skull Earrings (£39) I’m really pleased I got these as I received the matching ring in a previous box. The earrings are rose gold coloured which I love, and they are very high quality. This is definitely my favourite item!

So the total value of my box was £97 the extra gifts, so it came to well over £100 which I think is a pretty good deal! I love the skull earrings and the bracelet, I’m not overly keen on the necklace but I’ll give it a chance and it’ll hopefully grow on me!

If you subscribe before March 2nd, make sure you add my name – Michelle Kenyon – in the referrers box on your survey, and we will both receive a £5 voucher!

Astrid & Miyu Secret Box Review (September)

Posted on September 25, 2013

Hi Guys!

So here is my review of my second Astrid & Miyu Secret Box! I know it’s a bit late but everything’s been set back a bit due to the wedding! You can check out my first review here.

I was so excited to receive my latest Astrid & Miyu box a couple of weeks ago, I love everything in it! As usual, everything is packaged to perfection in a pretty cream box and bow, and each item of jewellery comes in it’s own branded pouch. Astrid & Miyu have also included some extra cards on makeup and skincare tips.

Firstly I received the – Make Me Lucky Charm Necklace (£29) This is such a pretty delicate horseshoe necklace, it looks great layered and is easy to wear everyday.

Next is the Rosy Rock Ring (£49) This is a rose gold plated ring with two diamante encrusted skulls. I’ve been wearing this every day since receiving my box 🙂

And lastly I received the Wild Thing Bracelet (no longer available on site) (£49) The Wild Thing bracelet is a wraparound bracelet with pony skin style leather strap, and large gold studs.

So the value of my box totals £127, not bad for a £39 subscription! If you want to subscribe you can do so here. Have you subbed? I’d love to hear what you received in your September box!

I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
