Worldly Box April 2016 Review

So last month was my first Worldly Box and I absolutely loved it. If you aren't familiar with this company, let me explain. Worldly Box is a subscription box that starts at $14.99/month with super cute and unique jewelry from all over the world that is personally picked out just for you! You take a survey before your first box arrives that has many questions and helps the wonderful people at Worldly pick out pieces that they think you will love. Included in your box are 2 jewelry items and one bonus mystery item. You can check out my review of my March 2016 Worldly Box here.

Now lets get started on the review of the April box!

As usual they wrap up the box in their super cute chevron tissue paper. So cute!

When I opened the box, there was my card, addressed to me with the details of the items in my box. Now let me say something here about this. Have you ever left a comment on a social media page for a business and wondered if they ever saw it? Worldly Box sees your comments. They not only saw a comment I made on a super cute pair of hoops that I loved, they included them in my box people! THEY INCLUDED THEM! Woo-Hoo! The card reads "...Thank you for leaving us comments on our Instagram, it helped me pick your pieces this month! Your first piece is the pair of earrings you liked from our Instagram page!.." Seriously, these people are amazing.

These earrings were handcrafted in India and are made from recycled glass colored beads and brass/silver metal. As my five year old daughter Sloan would say, they are adorbs!

The earrings. I have such love for them lol. 

Next is this also super cute beaded bracelet. It was handcrafted in Ghana and is so unique (in a good way). The beads look they are also made from recycled glass and each bead is hand painted.

The last item included in the box is a coin purse. It's made of wool felt and is from world of goods. The tag says that it was handcrafted by women artisans in Nepal. Inside the pouch was a tiny bag of gummy bears. My daughter really wants this pouch so I think I may give it to her, but the gummy bears are mine lol.

I don't know if I missed this last month, but this month I noticed that on my card, it says that a portion of my purchase was donated to provide meals to orphanages throughout Africa. How cool is that! These Worldly Boxes are making so many worldly differences. They are helping artisans from all over and orphanages. Just another reason to love them.

So there you have it. This box was awesome! I am so pleased again with Worldly Box and will be looking forward to my May box. If you are interested in trying out Worldly Box, click here.

Worldly Box March 2016 Review

*I'm a little late on posting this. But a little late is better than never! Btw, I received this box about 1 month ago. Sorry for the delay!

Last month as I was surfin the web looking for nothing in particular, I came across website called Worldly Box that instantly had me searching the internet looking for reviews. That's when I came across this review. Worldly Box is a jewelry monthly subscription service that sends you 2 pieces of handcrafted artisan jewelry and 1 extra item that isn't necessarily jewelry. Once you sign up, they send you a link to a survey that you fill out so they can get an idea of what kind of jewelry you like. Then, they hand pick items for you each month based on your answers. A JEWELRY PERSONAL SHOPPER, PEOPLE! Love this so much!

Instantly I was hooked. Such super cute stuff and for only $14.99 a month?! No freaking way.  I instantly signed up for the monthly service and also explored their shop where they offer a few select one of a kind pieces for sale. I purchased a necklace and will write another post about that. It's so pretty!

So yesterday, I was having a super awful day. I don't really have many bad days. I honestly can't remember the last time I had a horrible day. I'm actually pretty laid back and I don't worry much. But yesterday was different. NOTHING was going right. And to top it off, I was just about finished with my taxes when a glitch happened. And. Everything. Deleted.


I have to start over. After I hid in the corner and cried like I baby, I got up and moved onto something else. But the day just kept getting worse. Until I went to my mailbox. Inside was my very first Worldly subscription box! Woo-Hoo!! It had arrived an entire day early! I quickly ran back into the house and could hardly control myself to not rip into it without taking pictures first.

So lets get started on this review, shall we?!

Here is how the package arrives. Cute box with a colorful tissue paper band and a handwritten name tag with my name on it. Cute, right?!

When I opened the box, there were cards in there. One of the cards told about the jewelry that was hand selected for me, telling me who made the pieces and where they were made. Both of my pieces came from Venezuela.

The first piece I will show you are these earrings. I remember these earrings from the survey and I loved them! I was really excited that these were chosen for me! I love dangle earrings and I love shades of blue. These just looked very coastal and very me!

The second piece is this super cute blue knot root necklace. It's not really my style but I think it's pretty. It's lightweight and lays well. The length is perfect. I'm not sure if I will ever wear it but I'll hold on to it for now.

For the extra item, I was given a worry doll keychain. Could the timing be any more perfect on this one? lol. The enclosed card says that these little dolls were made and given to children so they could tell their fears to the doll. Then they place the doll under their pillow and the doll protects them from their fears and keep them from having nightmares.

I would rate this box 4 out of 5 stars. I'm happy with this box and I can't wait for future boxes to arrive. This little company was just started in January of this year. They are already having amazing growth and I see them only getting bigger and better!
