August Julep box is here! I forgot to skip it, and then my cc got hacked and I was kinda overjoyed I wasn’t getting the box that was auto-selected for me I think I told my credit card company all the charges were valid, and I had missed the skip window, my fault!
I admit I was cranky about getting Julep this month (ummm it’s hard to manage my boxes!) but after playing with it I loved this box. I don’t know what I was thinking. Purple PLUS a totally new to me shade neutral-ish color? Why was I mad about getting this box?! I LOVED IT! And this is why I try to write reviews after sampling what’s in the box. Because I cannot tell you my personal opinion until I actually try it.
Julep’s August selections – its anniversary month – was the Garden Party collection. Kind of an odd choice for August, but the outer box was beautiful this month!
August Julep Maven Subscription: Classic with a Twist Box
In the August box I received…
Julep Sylvia Polish: Lilac purple crème
Julep Veronica Polish: Modern mauve crème
These two polishes were a bit creme and “modern mauve” describes Veronica perfectly. I love it. Why was I mad about getting Julep? I LOVE JULEP! Forgive my quicky swatching swipes all over my fingers, you want to see them, right? Of course you do!
Doublestep Foot Treatment and Friction Stick: This no-mess shea butter treatment nourishes and moisturizes feet, stimulates circulation, and prevents blisters. Right now I’m all about my New Balance sneakers and walking to the mall. I thought I wouldn’t use this but after thinking about it, I do like to pamper my feet after dragging my kids all around everywhere I will use this to soothe tired tootsies. And yes, it got used!
The bonus extra was forget-me-not flowers which I gave to a new bloggy friend who visited me yesterday to grow at her new condo! So although I was a little meh about getting flower seeds in AUGUST I thought it was a sweet gift to give to someone with a brand new home and someone I just met! That made me happy! But yeah, that’s why I was mad, because the flower seeds weren’t awesome like, oh, say, all the other months. But giving it as a gift made me feel much better. Even if it was a tiny gift.
