Julep Mystery Wristlet!

Over the holidays, Julep had a different deal on for 12 days. On day 8 they had a mystery wristlet as their special deal of the day. Being a huge fan of the mystery boxes, of course I caved! In each wristlet you were guaranteed an essential cuticle oil and a value of $75 - $200!

Here is what I received:

Brandt $14
Hailee $14


Even though I definitely got the low end value, I'm still quite happy. The wristlet is a bit smaller than I expected, but it is made of great quality material and is exactly what I needed. I love the essential cuticle oil, so it's nice to have a spare for when I run out of the one I'm currently using. As for the colours, I love the suede finish Julep polishes, so I was very excited to see Hailee inside of my wristlet. I have been wanting Brandt for a while, and skipped out on the Trina Turk month, so I was equally happy to see Brant in my wristlet! Charlotte is a nice colour, and don't have another soft purple, so she's also a welcome addition. All in all, I'm quite happy with this purchase...I'm still on cloud 9 with my Gold Julep Maven Box though!

If you're not a Julep Maven, I highly recommend joining today! I think you can still use the codes 2815043, PENNY or JULEPVIP to receive your intro box for only 1 cent plus shipping!

January Julep Maven GOLDEN Box!

My  Julep Maven Box came today & to my surprise I received a GOLDEN BOX!!! Yes the box really is gold! I had such a hectic day that I didn't even notice, I was just happy to get my Julep box in the mail! This month's theme was neons & nudes. I decided to switch to the It Girl box, because I fell in love with  Amelia. To be honest I was more into the nudes than the neons, but now that I have the neon colours they are very pretty & wearable! 

Here is a picture of all my goods!

Inside I received the following:

A sheet of the new "Swatch Me!" Stickers (20 stickers)
3 Neon Hair Ties
A $25 Gift Card to Havaianas
7 Polishes! @ $14 each = $98


Pretty amazing!! I am so excited! I actually got this month's box with Jules, so this cost me absolutely nothing! I know it's greedy, but I'm kind of kicking myself that I didn't choose a different style because I really would like to try the product included in this month's boxes: Hand & Cuticle Stick. I am such a sucker for the products that Julep makes! Truth be told, I think I love them more than the polish itself! I'm still waiting for my Mystery Wristlet, hopefully it comes in later this week! Although, I can't imagine it topping this box! 

If you're not a Julep Maven, I highly recommend joining today! I think you can still use the codes 2815043, PENNY or JULEPVIP to receive your intro box for only 1 cent!

Thank-you Julep!!!

Julep: New Years Eve Mystery Box!

Over the holidays, I caved in and in addition to the monthly January Julep Maven Box, I also bought a NYE Mystery box and  Mystery Clutch. I have not yet received the clutch, but my NYE Box came in a couple of days ago. This Mystery Box guaranteed a minimum $100 value!

Here's what I received:

5 Polishes @ $14 each -  $70
(Mystery Glitter, LaurenAnnieCindy & Dendrie
1 Emery Board ~ Unknown Value

TOTAL VALUE: OVER $120.52 !!

Overall, I'm very happy this this box, I definitely got my money's worth! I love all of the polishes that I received  I only received one polish duplicate (Lauren), but I love the colour and actually only have half of my bottle left! I also really like the Pedi Creme, it's amazing! I still have half a bottle left from another box, but I'm sure it'll get used! I'm not every excited about the mascara, because it's brown. However, a lot of people rave about how good it is, so I'll definitely try it out!
