#FierceVoxBox & Stitch Fix #3 Reviews

I moved into my new apartment over the weekend & was so excited to see that I had the Fierce VoxBox waiting for me in my mail box.  So of course like any good procrastinator I decided to put off unpacking & open up the box to see what was in store for me.

Inside waiting for me to test was SheaMoisture Aragan Oil & Almond Milk Blow Out Cream, SheaMoisture Aragan Oil & Almond Milk Shampoo, Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Nail Polish, Madam C.J. WAlker Softening & Silkening Brassica Seed Oil, Vaseline Jelly, & Carefree Acti-Fresh Regular Liners.

First up was the nail polish because what better way to kill even more time than to paint your nails.  I love Sinful Colors nail polish to begin with.  I love it because it actually lasts & is good quality but is only like $2-$3.  I already own a decent amount of colors by this brand so I was excited to see I got a color that I didn't already own.  The color is Blueberry Hot Rod.  As I type this up on Wednesday night, it still hasn't chipped by the way & my nails chips all the time

Next up the Brassica Seed Oil.  I'm going to be completely honest in that I had no idea what to do with this.  Quite frankly I still don't know if I'm using it "right."  It says it's "a light weight hair oil that smooths and provides brilliant shine for heat-styled hair."  Well guess what...I don't do anything to my hair.  I wash it & let it dry naturally.  However, it does smell amazing.  It says it's a blend of spun sugar & red velvet cream.  So, I've been putting a little bit in my hair towards the ends before I go to work & then my hair smells awesome.

Again, I was like "hmm vaseline...what to do with that??"  Chapstick.  I have been using it on my lips.  Every. Single. Day.  And it's awesome.  I'm addicted to chapstick.  I also lose or leave tubes random places like no tomorrow.  You know what I don't lose?  This.  I throw it in my bag before I go to work, set it on my desk during the day, & then throw it back in my bag to bring home with me.  It works so well.  If y'all use it for something else please enlighten me.  I did let a kid use it for flyaways after they had their hair braided...

I haven't tried the blow out cream or shampoo yet because quite frankly my shower just got fixed so I was washing my hair in the sink up until a day ago & I just wasn't in the mood to deal.  I haven't used the liners yet either because while it's on it's way (sorry for everyone that's been dealing with my emotional mood swings) it hasn't hit yet so no need

Stitch Fix #3
Clearly by the heading I have tried Stitch Fix twice before.  Honestly, I wasn't impressed.  I only decided to give them a third chance because I got an email saying that they were waving the $20 styling fee so I figured this time I had nothing to lose.  You can read about my first fix here where I kept nothing & my second fix here where I kept one thing.  Before I get on with my third fix... I need to just get it out there that when I say you can read about my "fix" it makes me think of a junkie... ok moving on now...

1. Bay To Baubles Franco Spike Ear Jacket $28

2. Absolutely Lace Shoulder Detail Pullover $54

3. Blu Pepper Caitlin Split Back Knit Top $44

4. Skies Are Blue Caine Fringe Open Cardigan $54

5. Skies Are Blue Kirkpatrick Cold Shoulder Top $58

Rather than bore you all with my thoughts on individual pieces I'll give you the short of it.  I KEPT IT ALL!  I was actually super in love with this whole box.  My stylist this time nailed it.  Before ordering this one I made sure to make sure my style profile was up to date & I had been pinning clothes to my Pinterest board that's attached to my account.  Because I loved & kept all of it I got the 25% discount which is the only way I could really justify the price.  $178 for 4 tops & a pair of earrings is not that bad at all.  Especially when I can wear all of that to work & just out an about. (With the except of MAYBE that last shirt.)  So I guess third time is the charm.  However, despite loving the box it'll still be awhile before I order another one because I rarely buy clothes as it is & mama ain't made of money.  OH!  AND I still clearly need a photographer or a better mirror & better lighting.  So if I ever get another one & someone wants to humor me by taking all the pictures of me I'd love them forever...just sayin...


  1. I really like the white split back top and I think I like the yellow (for myself, obviously it all looks good on you!).. my problem is that I cannot justify spending that much on clothes, even if they are shipped straight to my door. That said, maybe if I loved something that much I might be willing to make an exception, buttttt probably not. #elcheapo

  2. Glad you had a better Stitch Fix box this last time- third time's a charm!

  4. I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU GOT ME AGAIN hahahaha! I literally shrieked when I saw your return address! Thank you so much for the galentine's gifts!! All the purple, please! :) I especially love the message on the candle, and I think I had the "Cinderella" Sinful Colors at one time, so great minds! PS- You got an awesome Stitch Fix! (I have not had much success with it.)

    1. Haha I know!! I had to triple check. I was like am I in the right one?? Is this possible?? I'm glad you liked your gift! That was my first time having success. I might try it again in the summer but I'm not sure yet.
