Wantable in the UK – Unboxing – October 2014 Accessories box and giveaway!

I really wanted to get my Wantable box post up on time for October but, unfortunately, there was a bit of a mix up which led to my box being late (and to a few other issues but they ended up being rather fortunate, in the end!) But here it is, anyway, hopefully my November Intimates box will go up this month too, but we shall see!

The box was brimming with exciting things, especially the big white box which dominated the space – It’s always exciting when something is in a box in a box!

The first item, in my October  box, is this fabric headband from Headbands of Hope. This company is lovely, for every headband that is bought, one is given to someone suffering with cancer and they also donate $1 to cancer research.

I love the colours of the fabric, it’s sewn into a tube (Sort of like a snood) and you gather it up to turn it in to a headband but for someone who has no hair it can cover the head. I have a duplicate of this, due to the mix up, and the lovely people at Wantable were really happy for me to follow through with a suggestion of my Mum’s. When my Mum was fighting cancer she was given support by the amazing charity https://www.maggiescentres.org/ so when she knew I had two of these she suggested we give the second one to the local centre – I feel like this is great as it’s very in keeping with the ethos of Headbands of Hope and, hopefully, it’ll be, even the tiniest bit, helpful to someone else who goes through what my Mum did.

The second item I got is this cute, silver arrow ring. I’ve not been wearing rings much, more recently, even though I used to wear them all of the time. I really like this ring, it’s distinctive without being in your face. It’s in the US size 6.

Look at this for beautiful! I Really love this necklace and can’t wait to use it to dress up a simple outfit – I love the gold and the grey metal together, plus the blue in the jewels to brighten it up. I am in love with this necklace!
I’m mean, I know, keeping the pretty box until last! But here it is… what’s inside the pretty box which came in a box?

That’s right! It’s a bag in a box in a box! In fact, the item is actually inside a plastic bag, too, so it’s a bag in a bag in a box in a box… but it’s getting silly now so I guess I’ll just show you what was in a bag in a bag in a box in a box!

It’s it pretty! By Emily Maynard this bracelet is just beautiful – I love that it’s simple but also got a hint of glitz with the little crystals in each metal piece. It reminds me of the perfect hybrid of the sort of thing I used to wear, mixed with the sort of thing I wear now – I absolutely love it.

Now… with the mix up there was one, last, issue. As well as the headband there was another duplicate and one item that I couldn’t use at all. Thankfully, for you lovely people, the people at Wantable were happy for me to put those two items in a giveaway!

The duplicate item is the arrow ring which I’ll show you again, here:

And the item I was sent that I can’t use at all is these earrings. Now I’m not big on the appearance of hoop earrings, normally, it’s not something I’d go for if I had my ears pierced but I think that these are absolutely beautiful, I love the different shades of the beads:

So, yes, I have these two items to give away now! So pleased! These would be great for yourself, or to save as a Christmas present for someone (it’ll be early December by the time the giveaway ends). You can enter via the rafflecopter and the terms and conditions are below.
