May Julep Maven Box


Long time no blog post!  As some of you may know, I took quite a long break from any blogging.  At the tail end of my pregnancy I wasn’t feeling great and needed to focus on my family as well as myself.  After the birth of my baby, I felt like I just needed to continue to focus my energy on the family.  I’m sure you can understand.  Life always must take precedence.   Hey, I’ve also updated my second blog.  Some of you may be interested.  I certainly don’t expect everyone to be, though.  It is a post on converting a normal tank top into a nursing tank top.   You can take a peek at that: HERE!
I have gotten several of my monthly Julep boxes since I’ve been gone but I will only post right now about my most recent one.  I got this in the mail about a week ago.  Forgive me for the delayed post on it.  I changed my box to the “It Girl” box.  Though I’m sure I have colors just like these already, I was a sucker.  Plus, this month they said you’d receive double the Jules if you opted to accept your box.  (which, I didn’t get double…  I still need to make a phone call about that….)


This first color is called Kam.  She is a lovely, soft mint green.  She will be perfect to wear this spring.  I love these types of aqua-mint kind of shades.  They just scream warm weather and flowers blossoming to me.


This second polish is Jules.  She is a pastel peachy-pink (don’t you hate the description “peachy-pink”?)  But, that is what Jules is!  I have a feeling Jules will be sheer and will need 3 coats to even be semi opaque.
My box also included their new Plie Wand.  It is supposed to make polishing your own nails easier as you aren’t gripping a tiny polish lid.  We’ll see. I don’t really have trouble, but I’m sure some will find it absolutely amazing.  For me, personally, I have a feeling it will be more of a nuisance than anything else.
Did you get a Julep box this month?  If so, let me know which you received and what your thoughts are on the colors!  If you aren’t already a Maven, you can sign up through this referral link: CLICK HERE TO BECOME A MAVEN!
