Happy Thursday everyone! Has anyone else had a particularly long week? This week was the end of the Candidate Filing period in Utah, for those who do not know this year is a Municipal election year. Since I am a City Recorder I had to wait patiently in my office for any potential candidates. The filing period ended last night, so naturally today is my break. Okay, today is my do off because Monday I was waiting for those candidates to rush into my office.
See, so it truly is a Happy Thursday for me; even if I did not accomplish all I had wanted, like going to Yoga. In honor of this Thursday I decided to share a post that is somewhat like a Throwback Thursday. When I first started my blog all those months ago, I planned to share a review of the beauty boxes I was receiving. In fact I did share a few such as this Julep one and that Birchbox one. Eventually though I moved away from these monthly boxes and thus stopped sharing the reviews.
There is one box however that I kept, the Julep Beauty Box. Is it because I am too lazy to call and cancel it? Maybe. Or is it because I actually really like the products? Also maybe. Okay, no I really do like these products and although this box is $25 a month it allows for more customization. Additionally, you are allowed to skip it, when you remember. Guess who forgot to skip it last month? That is right, this girl! Given what I received though, I am glad to have forgotten to hit the skip button.
Julep Beauty Box – June 2017
Look above at that pretty box! They even gave me candy. How thoughtful. So what exactly did my box contain. Well unlike most months I only received one nail polish. This month I also received an eyeliner pencil and a mascara. Surprisingly these were not the items I expected to receive. Instead I though I was receiving a different shade of polish and an eye brow thing. Imagine my surprise to see these two items instead. Okay, not think about the fact that I have thick eyebrows and do not need anything to make them look thicker. Now imagine my surprise!
So what exactly was in my box this month? Well it was filled with the following three items.
- Fran Bombshell Nail Polish – This is not necessarily what I expected, and it might be a little bright for my taste; but it is summer so I will give it a try.
- With a Twist, Lash Boosting Bamboo Mascara – Every other mascara I have tried from Julep is amazing. The only downside is that it smears easily. Still though, if you are someone who does not touch your eyes every twenty minutes, this product is great!
- When Pencil Met Gel, Long Lasting Eyeliner – I struggle with eyeliner but I love Julep eyeliner. I do not know why, but this is the only one I can really wear. Yes, I would recommend this product.
Okay, so I realize that overall this is a short post. I should write more, but I am also in the middle of getting dinner cooked. Lynden is eating his favorite meal tonight, Spaghetti! (BTW for people who know us I have to beg for spaghetti dinner). So, I will close with this, if you are interested in trying Julep please visit my link here! I absolutely love these products, especially the nail polish. Yes, it is pricier, but for a regular polish it lasts!
