Asli Bracelet in Bronze

This gorgeous bracelet is handmade in Turkey using gold-plated copper. The fully adjustable piece features bronze glass and natural bronze Mother of Pearl accent pieces. Wear this bracelet on your wrist or higher up on your forearm for an even more goddess-like look. This bracelet looks expensive and the easy sizing makes the piece totally versatile. Yesterday, I paired this chic accessory with a long summer maxi dress and I received a ton of compliments. :)

verdict

The August Helene Jewelry Box totally wowed! The modern Asli Bracelet in Bronze has a very contemporary feel and it can be featured with a number of different outfits.

boxbasics

Company: Dottiebox

Category: Handmade

Cost: Dottiebox Mini - USD $10.00/month, plus $3.00 shipping

About: “A Dottiebox is a box curated every month for women. We feature high quality handmade items, small businesses, and indie brands.”

The Scoop: In this mini version of the original Dottiebox, you’ll receive a collection of 2-3 handmade items plus coupons each month. These hand-picked items come from local artisans across the United States and may feature goods such as beauty products, home decor, and more! Each box is different and features unique indie brands.

The Box:

I knew Dottiebox would be perfect for me because I love shopping on etsy and supporting independent businesses. The Mini box is the smaller version of the regular Dottiebox subscription. The August shipment arrived in a branded box with the contents carefully wrapped inside. There was also a card that described each of the featured products too. Let’s check out this month’s amazing handmade goods…

Naturally Kamdyn Hair Ties
3 pack, value: USD $5.00

Elastic hair ties are the best because they don’t damage your locks like traditional hair ties with metal closures. Naturally Kamdyn is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and it’s owned by business woman Miranda Picadio. These soft and stretchy hair ties are made from fold over elastic and the ends are heat-sealed to prevent fraying. I absolutely adore the gorgeous colors — especially the fun tie dye design!

Moe’s Apothecary Sugar Scrub
4 oz., value: USD $8.00

Sugar scrub is the perfect way to treat yourself to an at-home spa experience after a long day of work. The Coconut Lime and Mint Emulsified scrub from Moe’s Apothecary, run by Karen Gard, smells just like a tropical mojito! It’s pretty darn magical. The scrub exfoliates and moisturizes rough skin, leaving you feeling smooth and hydrated. I appreciate the fact that the product washes off easily and doesn’t have a greasy feel.

verdict

After reviewing my first Dottiebox Mini, I can safely say that this is one of my favorite subscriptions.  I was super impressed with the quality of this month’s featured items. The elastic hair bands are chic and comfortable to wear, and the sugar scrub provides the ultimate gateway to relaxation. And, it feels great to know that Dottiebox helps support small businesses nationwide. I’m excited to share that I’ll also be reviewing the regular Dottiebox later this month, so stay tuned. I can’t wait to show you what’s inside!

This playful panty features a white polka dot design against a pastel blue background. The elastic around the waist and leg openings are super comfortable and the full cut is perfect for the conservative woman. Overall, the look is really pretty and demure.
