Wantable Intimates review – April 2015

Wantable Intimates review – April 2015

There are five different Wantable boxes that you can subscribe to – Accessories, Make-up, Intimates, Fitness or Style. Note: the Fitness and Style subscriptions are currently only available in the US.

My Wantable Intimates box was a little hit and miss for me this month. I loved the cute pj set but I’m a bit over receiving items from the Real Underwear brand.

This month my preferences were set to:

Love – loungewear, leggings and bras
Like – lingerie, panties and socks
Dislike – tights/hoisery and shapewear

First look

Products

Per Lei Lily Top in Pink
RRP $17 US

Wantable says – ‘From Per Lei: This ultra soft lace trim top pairs perfectly with the tap pant! This runs a bit snug so we sized you accordingly!’

This isn’t something that I would have picked for myself but I quite like it. I love matching sets, so the fact that it comes with matching shorts is awesome!

Per Lei Lily Tap Shorts in Pink
RRP $17 US

Wantable says – ‘From Per Lei: This adorable tap pant is the perfect match to the lace trim top. This runs a little small so we sized you accordingly!’

These are snug but cute. The fabric on both the shorts and the top is a little sheer but suitable for PJs.

Real Underwear Fusion Cami in Nude
RRP $28

Wantable says – ‘Beautiful seamless cami with Fusion technology from Real Underwear. This piece works great under anything!’

Ok, let me say that there is nothing wrong with this product. It’s just that I am over receiving items from Real Underwear. Last month I got a purple bralette, the month before a purple cami and the month before that a nude slip. So I will be giving Wantable that feedback 🙁

Was it worth it?

The first box costs $40 and then if you keep all the items in the box you get a $4 credit for next time. Making it $36.

I kept all my items from last month so I was billed  $36 for a monthly subscription and $10 for shipping to Australia.

TOTAL COST $46 US (on today’s dollar that makes it $58.80 Aussie dollars)

How long did it take to get to Australia?

My Wantable boxes always seem to take about two weeks to get here from the US.

Was it worth it?

Value wise I spent $46 US and received $62 US worth of items. Although I feel a little cheated receiving another Real Underwear item. I do love the pink matching PJ set though 🙂 I will be writing to Wantable to let them know I’m not happy with receiving so many items from Real Underwear! I’ll let you know what they say.

Wantable Intimates review – February 2015

Wantable Intimates review – February 2015

I loved my February Wantable Intimates Box everything was super soft and comfy.

First look

 

The products

Sparkling Grape Leggings by Nikibiki
Value $12US

Wantable says – ‘These leggings feature a wide waistband for all day comfort. They’re perfect for working out, lounging, or wearing with your favourite dresses and tunic style tops.’

At first glance I thought they were a nice colour but not really my thing. Then I put them on and I fell in love with them. They are soooo comfy and look super cute on. The thing to note is that the fabric is more like a stocking fabric. I was worried about putting a pull in it with my finger nails but it seemed quite durable. I couldn’t find this expect pair on the internet but they do have lots of cool ones for sale in other patterns. The plain ones start at $12 and the patterned ones up to $35.

Fusion Tank in Lipgloss by real Underwear
Value $32US

Wantable says – ‘This Fusion technology tank from Real Underwear is the perfect layering piece, and versatile too! Scoop neck on one side, v-neck on the other!

This is a nice soft and slinky feeling tank top in a great colour. It matches pretty well with the grape coloured leggings. I think it would also look great worn to work with a skirt and jacket set. I’ll be trying that with my grey skirt jacket set this week. It’s nice and silky so you could also wear it as a PJ top.

Teal Love Heart Romper by Dreamwave Pajama
Vakye $28US

Wantable says – ‘A fun and cozy romper, perfect for lounging. This Romper is perfect for lounging near a cozy fire with friends and family!’

OMG! I squeeled with delight when I saw this item. It’s a cute pj romper with love hearts. Awwww… How awesome. It has a soothing waffle (that’s what I think it’s called) texture to it.

How much does it cost?

Wantable has changed their billing system. The first box costs $40 and then if you keep all the items in the box you get a $4 credit for next time. Making it $36.

I kept all my items from last month so I was billed  $36 for a monthly subscription and $10 for shipping to Australia.

TOTAL COST $46 US (on today’s dollar that makes it $58.88 Aussie dollars)

How long did it take to get to Australia?

My Wantable boxes always seem to take about two weeks to get here from the US.

Was it worth it?

I really enjoyed the items in my Wantable Intimates box this month. Everything fit well, was comfy and easily fit into my wardrobe needs. I have changed my settings for next month so we will have to wait and see what I get different. I also put in a request for MUK LUK Sock Slippers. I’m interested to see how the request section works. If it works well I’m going to use it to request items that I need. Kinda like having your own personal shopper ;-)

Value wise this month I received $72 US or $92 Aussie dollars worth of goods. So money wise this is good value. Especially when I loved all the items!

Popbasic’s Isla Collection is now available

This week Popbasic’s Isla Collection went live.

I’m a big fan of Popbasic. I have brought three of their previous collections and I also purchased the Strawberries and Cream blouse that is due to arrive in March. Hooray!

 

The Isla Collection costs $75US with free world wide shipping and consists of the Cobalt Dream Maxi Skirt, Basic Black Tee and Vantage Point necklace.

Cobalt Dream Maxi Skirt
RRP $60

Basic Black Tee
RRP $40

Vantage Point Necklace
RRP $25

It is a cute collection and I am very tempted except for the fact I own a green maxi skirt from the Popbasic Sherwood Collection and a black shirt. So I already have a very similar outfit! Here’s me wearing the Sherwood Collection.

The Parcel by Girlfriend magazine – Update to subscription frequency

The Parcel by Girlfriend magazine – Update to subscription frequency

If you have subscribed to The Parcel by Girlfriend magazine you would have received an email recently detailing that the subscription has changed frequency from 6 times a year to 4 times a year.

So this means that the ‘Hit Refresh Edit 2015’ which was due to be delivered between the 9th and 25th of February 2015 is now due to be delivered between the 9th of March and the 6th of April 2015.

The ‘Hit Refresh Edit 2015’ will include products from Dermalogica, L’Oreal Paris, Maybelline, Biore and Rimmel London.

I have enjoyed both of The Parcel’s I have received so far. I’m also secretly hoping that the creators of The Parcel will also do a box for Women’s Health magazine. Fingers crossed!!

PS – Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway for the previous The Parcel by Girlfriend box. A winner has been contacted. Hooray!!! I love drawing contests. It’s so much fun.
