astrid & miyu March Secret Box

Earlier on this year, I posted about a new subscription box service from astrid & miyu called the Secret Box. I got my first box back in December and I was so pleased with the items they'd personally picked out I couldn't wait to receive my next one. If you want to read about my first Secret Box and how the subscription service works, then check out my original post here.

Well along came March and the delivery of my second Secret Box. One thing I had noticed was that astrid & miyu reduced the box value from 'up to £200 worth...'  to only up to £100 in jewellery, as claimed on their website. Was I disappointed that they'd changed? Not really. After all, getting £100 worth of jewellery for only £39 is a bargain, let alone £200, so I still feel like I'm getting amazing value. And when they hand-pick products for your box so that it is tailored to your tastes, and they get it oh so right, I truly cannot complain...

... and oh boy did they get it right! I was ecstatic with the contents for my second box. If you read my first post you will remember that there was one sparkly, rose gold astrid & miyu number that I had had my eye on forever. And yep, you guessed it, I got it in the box, along with the beautiful matching earrings.

Readers, let me introduce you to the Love At First Sight collection...

Love At First Sight Ring £49
Love At First Sight Earrings £39
The Love At First Sight ring I spotted a long time ago on Tali's (now deleted) blog Glossy's Wardrobe and as worn by Zara at Mouldy Fruit. As one of astrid & miyu's signature styles, with curvaceous rose gold and glamorous sparkle it's no wonder why it's a best seller.

The metal ring is made from rose gold plated brass, adorned with Swarovski crystals and is easily bendable to adjust to fit most ring sizes. It fits my ring finger perfectly as it is and I am completely in love with the glittering elegance of it - I never want to take it off!

Along with the ring, astrid & miyu sent me the matching earrings and they are equally exquisite! Again, made from rose gold plated brass but with sterling silver posts.

The earrings are just the right size to get noticed without being to over the top 'bling'. They consist of two Swarovski crystal encrusted half circles that cross over and sit perfectly in the ear, gently curving under at the bottom of the earlobe.

Along with the gorgeous jewellery, astrid & miyu added a couple of little treats to the Secret Box which I thought was the perfect added extra. I got the ultimate elegant nude nail polish from Essie in Ballet Slippers so I can be perfectly manicured and show off my ring at the same time. But more importantly a little voucher for 30% off future astrid & miyu purchases... fear not, I spent that well and will show you the fruits of my spree shortly.

All I have to do now is wait patiently for my next box, three months seems so far but it will be worth the wait. For now I will continue to glitter in rose gold and stare lovingly at my new ring... roll on June!
