Sparkle Box Review: August 2015

Here’s my quick review for this month’s Sparkle Box package. I received a Subtle jewelry collection this time around, and I have to say I was very excited after I unboxed it! Each piece looked dainty and beautiful. Very classic and could stand the test of time.

Here’s what I received, from left to right:

    Dripping with Style Earrings
    “This teardrop-shaped duo is subtle and reserved with their blush marbled cabochons. The pretty gold-stone settings add some sparkle.” Charlotte Necklace
    “Two layers of sparkly charm.

What I Wore: Skirts and Hats

I woke up one day and decided I didn’t like pants. Don’t really know why, I guess I’m getting bored of my usual look? It’s also really uncomfortable to have skintight jeans when it’s so hot out.

Meet Beebo the Marimo

My friend Mara gave me a pet marimo for my birthday last month! <3 I told her I was thinking of getting one since they look so cute and are very easy to take care of.

There are no hard spec sheets, no benchmarks (though I did run one for fun), or side-by-side comparisons against other current flagships. This is just a personal entry on how the LG G4 is working out for me and my needs.

I’ve been in the market for a new phone since my HTC One M7 caught the very unfortunate pink camera defect last year. Read more…

What I Wore: On Vacation

I packed very light for our one-week vacation in Vegas. One pair of shoes, one pair of sunglasses, one bag, two dresses, three shirts, one pair of jeans, and a pair of lounge shorts for sleeping. My goal was to travel without checking in any luggage. I used to be a notorious overpacker, but I’ve been keeping it simple now.

Unsurprisingly, it was very hot in Vegas! It was like an oven outside, and the heat being dry doesn’t really help much. Read more…
