Fine Silver Wire is back!

I have 32 gauge fine silver wire back in my Etsy shop (the price came down!) and a few new earring pairs. I've been working in some lovely pinks, peaches and greens so there are some really nice beads for summer jewellery.

May Glymm Box

My May Glymm box came and I love the new packaging. I probably save 20% of my samples from my boxes to use as gifts and I'll use these new pink bags to give away goodies in. I like that they are thinking more environmentally friendly.

Samples this month were interesting. I am still not that fond of the single sample tear off style. I like something that's got a little more substance to it.

There was a CK Shock for him and her this month value 2.00 for both combined they are small 1ml sample sizes. I'll give the mens one to my husband.

Coola Organic suncare 30 SPF sunblock, a single year off top sample size. Not thrilled with this sample all though it will come in handy in my purse. 5 ml sample value 3.50.

Nume hair conditioner which I am excited to try since it's for dry or colour treated hair and I have both! 20 ml size value 2.00

Mereadesso FULL size lip treat in sheer burgundy. I'd love to try this but it's way too dark for me so it will go into my gift box, someone will get an amazing gift! FULL size value 14.00

Caudalie Gentle Buffing Cream for your face. I'm interested to try this as usually scrubs are too harsh for my face. This has a nice fresh citrus smell to it. 15 ml size value 8.75

Caudalie Anti Ageing Serum, I have to admit there was a either/or with this sample and I wish i'd gotten the Cabernet Body Scrub instead. But none the less I can use this sample around my eyes and lips, maybe decreasing my wrinkles (HA!). 7 ml sample value 15.40

Total value this month 45.65 and a snazzy bright pink bag!

Button Blog hop

Today is the reveal day of the Button Blog Hop hosted by Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio. I was fairly excited going into this swap, I make glass and silver buttons and thought it would be really cool to swap one with someone so I jumped right in when Cindy announced this swap. Alas I didn't receive any buttons. Cindy said it would be ok to post something I'd made with buttons lately even though I received none through the swap. I still wanted to be a part of the hop so I decided to post a something I've been working on lately I am PUMPED about!

These are the buttons I sent. One large two holed lamp work button, two small single holed daisy bead buttons (my personal faces) and three shanked glass buttons.

These are what I'm so excited about! These are single wrap bracelets ( all the rage lately) made entirely with my boor beads. Little teeny tiny boro beads! And my own silver buttons. I wear a four wrap one a lot and I think they just glow. 

So no buttons from the swap for me, but I think what I made with my own buttons is worth showing off!!

Luxe Box April

My April Luxe Box came and I'm loving this one! 

It has a full size China Glaze polish in a fun sparkly color that I think will look gorgeous over some of my Julep polishes. Full size value 8.00

Yves Rocher eye makeup remover, came at a perfect time as I am just about out of makeup remover. This one is especially for sensitive eyes so I'm interested to try it. 50 ml size value 2.50

Bobos Remi leave in hair conditioner, this was my pick ahead for this month. I am always looking for a better hair conditioner. 2.7 oz value 2.70

Pantene Aqua light conditioner and shampoo. I like the idea of this being a weightless product so we shall see how it works. 50 m sample of each value 1.60 value.

While the value on this months box is only 14.80 I'm really happy with the samples. All decent sized sample you can really get a feel for the product from. Something Beauty Box 5 could learn from.
