Valentine’s Day is only a few days away, and if you are still stressing for that fun and special gift for your besties look no further!
If you haven’t heard of Rocksbox yet, you are totally missing out! Essentially, they are a jewelry subscription service. You let your personal stylist know what types of jewelery you are into, and they send you a custom box of jewelery that you are sure to love! The best part is you can wear the pieces as much as you want for a rental of 60 days! If you just love them and have to buy them you can OR just send them back for a new set! It’s up to you!
How adorable is this box??
With Rocksbox, the monthly subscription fee is $19. With this comes your custom picked jewelry pieces and the opportunity to rent the items and wear them as much as you want! In your box you will even receive a prepaid shipping label to send back the items you don’t wish to purchase. So easy! If you can’t live without a piece, your $19 subscription fee will be subtracted from the cost! PLUS if you purchase all three items in the box you get an extra discount off the price.
I’m into more timeless, classic pieces. In my first box I received a ring, bracelet, and earrings. I loved the three pieces I got in my first box because they are so simple and elegant!
So this Galentine’s Day, sign your girls (or yourself!) up for a month of Rocksbox that is totally free! Use code FANCYFREEBLOGXOXO to send your friends a FREE box of custom picked jewelry they can choose to just rent or purchase! They will absolutely love the surprise of receiving a box of beautiful jewelry custom picked for them, and the opportunity to wear these custom pieces of jewelry as much as they please.

Alright ladies, it is nearly game time. Valentine's Day is exactly one week away, and naturally you have no idea what to get the special guy or girl in your life. I'm there every year!My husband Bjorn can be very difficult to shop for. He doesn't give many ideas when it comes to gift suggestions, and if it doesn't have an engine he is not too interested. I wanted to surprise him with a special and thoughtful gift he didn't even know he wanted.
If you want to forego the boring card and candy this year like me, try giving your loved one something really special. A unique, wooden watch from Jord!
The Jord watch arrived in a beautiful, sturdy magnetic wood box. The presentation is a gift in itself, so no wrapping or bag required! For Bjorn, I decided on the Frankie series wooden watch made of Zebrawood with a navy face. Timeless! You can view the watch I got for hubby HERE.
The watch itself is actually very lightweight, Bjorn said he could barely tell he was wearing it at all! It adds such a timeless and classic look, whether you are going for a casual or more polished look it's perfect for everyday. Plus the wood detailing makes this such a unique watch, you can guarantee you won't see another watch around like it!
Another great option you can add to this gift is a personalized engraving. Add any special message you would like to give to your special person to wear on their arm everyday! You can put the message on the inside of the watch under the face, so get creative and don't be shy. ;)
I'm excited to share that now thru 2/18 I am partnering with Jord to offer one of my readers a $100 gift code so you can buy a watch for your loved one this Valentine's Day! (or for yourself, do you!) Click the link HERE to sign up! Even if you don't win, you will still receive a 10% discount code to use towards your Jord purchase just for signing up! Win win! Run, don't walk, because you only have thru 2/18 to sign up!

Whether you are a super mom or in the office all day (or both!), we could all use an easier way to care for our face and feel we look our very best. Working a 9-5 and coming home to a blog and eBay store has definitely left me with less sleep and even less time to worry about my complexion. When I was reached out to by VIIcode skin care to give their new eye masks a try, I was all onboard! These are eye masks like I’ve never seen before because they will literally make you look prettier while you sleep! No work required!
Unlike other eye and sheet masks, the VIIcode eye mask is an 8 hour overnight treatment. All you do is apply the masks under your eyes, lay back, and let the mask do it’s work while you snooze! Other masks that aren’t intended for sleep have been hard to fit into my schedule because I am always on the go and I can’t always commit to staying at home for enough time to let the masks do their magic. But you can bet I will commit to 8 hours of sleep!
The eye masks are super easy to apply, all you do is peel off the backing and place under your pretty little eyes. It was recommended to place the masks in the fridge before application, which I had never tried with another eye mask. This made the masks SO cool and refreshing, it felt like a spa treatment as soon as I applied them! Plus the masks are actually a gel-like material, so you don’t have to worry about any application mess.
I move a lot when I sleep, so I was worried about where I would find the masks after I woke up. But low and behold they were exactly where I put them the night before! They weren’t sticky and came off easily. After only 3 or 4 nights of using the VIIcode eye masks I noticed significantly less darkness under my eyes, and felt overall I just looked more refreshed and rested. That is not so easy to accomplish!
If you are ready to get prettier while you sleep, you can learn more and purchase your own VIIcode eye masks yourself here! Now through the end of February you can get $5 off site wide with code "SYDNEY" so make sure to check out all the skin care products VIIcode has to offer!
