Stitch Fix Box #3 – July 2014

Stitch Fix July 2014

I just received my third Stitch Fix box and I must say, it just keeps getting better! If you didn’t read my review of last month’s box, check it out here. Although I decided to only keep 2 of the 5 items this month, I was really on the fence about 2 others as well! Here are some photos and details about what I received this month:

Stitch Fix AISHA DECO PENDANT NECKLACE

AISHA DECO PENDANT NECKLACE

The Aisha Deco Pendant necklace is exactly the piece of jewelry I had been looking for lately, so naturally I had to keep this one! It has just the right amount of sparkle without being too bling-y and can add a nice elegant touch to a casual outfit or be worn with a dressier look as well. The price was $38, which I thought was great for a nice necklace. It can be worn long (as shown in all of my pictures below), or you can loop the chain through the top of the pendant a second time and wear it short as well!

Stitch Fix - KAMILE JERSEY RUCHED DETAIL DRESS

KAMILE JERSEY RUCHED DETAIL DRESS

I LOVED the fuchsia color of this Kamile Jersey Ruched Detail Dress and it fit me SO perfectly. It was a tough call on this one. Although I need more bright dresses in my wardrobe, and especially for my upcoming Bahamas cruise, I ultimately decided against this one. I felt that the cut and fit along the top made my chest look even bigger than it already is…and I definitely don’t need any help in that department! I may regret not keeping this one, even looking at the picture I miss it already! The price tag on this dress was $64, pretty good for a dress!

Stitch Fix - GLORIA COLORBLOCK ABSTRACT PRINT HI-LO TANK & ODELL CAPRI JEAN

GLORIA COLORBLOCK & ABSTRACT PRINT HI-LO TANK & ODELL CAPRI JEAN

The Gloria Colorblock & Abstract Print Hi-Lo Tank and Odell Capri Jean pictured above were a mixed bag for me. I liked the print and fit of the tank (priced at $48) and thought it was really fun, but the cut along the bottom made it a no-go for me. It would be great for someone with narrower hips perhaps, as I felt that the cut really added some width there! The capris were very cute and very comfortable, but I just bought a nearly identical pair on sale at LOFT last week so that was the deciding factor for me. The price was a bit high on them too ($78) considering I paid less than half that for the other capris I just purchased.

Stitch Fix - CAMILLE STRIPED POCKET-FRONT TANK & ODELL CAPRI JEAN

CAMILLE STRIPED POCKET-FRONT TANK & ODELL CAPRI JEAN

The Camille Striped Pocket-Front Tank (pictured with the Odell Capri Jean) was an instant winner for me. I live in tanks during the spring, summer and fall (and most of the winter) here in San Diego, and comfort is key. This tank fit perfect and has the capability of being dressed up with white capris and heels or being worn with jeans and flip-flops. I like versatility! At $44, it was perhaps a bit more than my typical tank top budget, but I liked it so much that I went for it anyway.

If you haven’t given Stitch Fix a try, head on over to their website, fill out your style profile and order your first box! It’s only $20 for each box, and if you end up purchasing any of your 5 items, you get the $20 back in the form of a credit towards your purchase! You can just order boxes as you’d like or sign up for a regular monthly “fix”, no obligation either way. Have fun and stay stylish!

Do Chi Machines Really Work?

Chi Machine Benefits

When I recently read about theChi Machine benefits of using a Chi Machine in a magazine, I immediately took to Google to do some research. I have been suffering for nearly 3 years from back pain related to two herniated discs, L4/L5 & L5/S1. Although I have found tremendous relief from acupuncture, I can’t always get an appointment when I need it most having 2 young children. Although, if I could, I would have acupuncture every day! I have also tried physical therapy, numerous medications, stretching and yoga, you name it. I prefer a natural approach to healing my pain and would like to avoid medication or steroid injections as have often been recommended. So, when I came across the Chi Machine and read about the numerous benefits it can have on the body, including relief of chronic back pain, I knew I had to have one. I researched several models on Amazon and wanted to get one of the cheaper models as I was so skeptical, so I went with the Sunpentown Healthy Swing Machine and got it on sale for under $80. I was excited to give it a try as there are so many potential benefits to using a Chi Machine outside of just pain relief! Here is just a partial list of the benefits one can derive from using a Chi Machine:

  • Reduction in soreness, aches and pains (including back pain and fibromyalgia)
  • Improved flexibility and spinal alignment
  • Improved circulation and reduced swelling/edema
  • Stress relief/relaxation
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved metabolism


My Chi Machine Experience

I have personally experienced just about every benefit listed above. My pain was nearly eradicated after using a Chi Machine just a few times. I really didn’t think it would work, and especially not so quickly. I have also been sleeping much better, have lost several pounds of water weight and just feel more relaxed and calm than usual. My children both love using the Chi Machine too, and I’ve found that it helps my 6-year old son with ADHD stay more calm and focused. If you’ve been suffering from chronic pain or another ailment that could be improved with a Chi Machine, I’d highly recommend giving it a try. There are numerous models to choose from, but as mentioned earlier, I went with the cheapest and have been very happy with it. The Sunpentown Healthy Swing Machine has 14 different speeds, an easy to use remote control, an optional swivel disc for added benefit, and best of all, it’s affordable! One note is that I do prefer to add some padding to the ankle rest, but a folded up hand towel does the trick for me, so it’s not a big issue.

LifeLock – How Do You Protect Your Identity?

Credit Monitoring Is Not Proactive Identity Theft Protection

There were 12.6 million victims of identity fraud in the U.S. in 2012, were you one of them? If not, you are one of the lucky few. I personally have endured several cases of credit card and debit card fraud and those isolated cases were enough to stress me out for weeks on end. I monitor my credit reports regularly, but these incidents can escalate so quickly that I feel like monitoring my credit report is too reactive of a measure. Although I’m not entirely sure how my information was stolen in those cases, I narrowed it down to a couple of likely possibilities and protected myself from what I believe was the culprit. I consider myself a tech-savvy mom and have embraced a lot of today’s technology involving cashless payments and I use my credit cards rather freely online. But, with the recent data breaches at places like eBay and Target (2 of my top online shopping destinations), I am left wondering if I am leaving myself vulnerable to yet another identity theft, maybe even something on a larger scale?
