Bespoke Post reviews: Roam and Vibes

All boxes reviewed were bought with my own money. However, this post contain a coupon and referral link at the end.

Hi everyone! I just want to do a review about the two Bespoke Post boxes I got these past two months. If you’ve never heard of Bespoke Post before, it’s sort of like Birchbox Man where the box is more lifestyle geared. Bespoke Post offers themed boxes and releases new boxes every month and you’re able to get past month’s boxes as long as they’re still in stock. While Bespoke Post is aimed towards men, I find it the boxes/items to be gender neutral and always well curated (sleek and minimal are the words that come to mind). This review is mostly for the Vibes box, but I’ll talk a little bit about the Roam one too.

Jumping on the Kickstarter bandwagon

This post contains affiliate links (Nordstrom). All Kickstarter pledges are with my own money πŸ™‚ .

I’m constantly discovering new ways of procrastinating. My latest discovery is Kickstarter.

Obviously Kickstarted has become a really big thing over the past couple of years but I never ventured over there because 1) I really didn’t need to spend more money and 2) Why should I hand over money to strangers? I’m clearly not a very trusting person. However, what I didn’t know was that you aren’t charged for the amount you pledge unless the project meets its minimum funding. I’m not sure why I thought you would still be charged even if the project was a bust. It seems like such a stupid/naive thought now but I thought people were crazy for putting so much faith along with their money behind the ideas of others.

But this past weekend, I found myself browsing the website to see what the fuss was about. For one, I have a few friends who have pledged to certain projects/products and received awesome items (e.g. tech, watches, etc.). I’ve also heard about projects that were such successes that they were able to start a legit company/production of said item (e.g. U-turn audio– how amazing do those turntables look? My friend bought one recently and it’s gorgeous… I may or may not be saving up for one πŸ˜‰ )

Here are two projects I’ve backed in the last two days lol:

Home decor: mirrored vanity tray

We haven’t had a home design/decor post yet, and seeing how I managed to set up (aka clean) a little area of my room for some prettiness, I thought I’d share:
