Christmas is approaching too quickly! I want it to stop this very second! I haven’t had time to bask in the glory of the season. Although my shopping is nearly done, not a single gift is wrapped. Not a single cookie is baked. I promised myself, just this morning, that I will slow down and enjoy the rest of the season before it gets away; even if it means I have to prioritize and not worry about things that just won’t get done. And, that’s probably going to mean no Christmas cards this year. Sorry, folks. I tried! Note to self…..start planning for Christmas even earlier next year!
I did receive my December Julep Maven box in the mail this week. I’d considered dropping my monthly Maven subscription because my drawer is beginning to overflow with nail polish. I’d have to have ten hands to use it at rate I’m getting it. But, I couldn’t let it go. I truly love all of the Julep products! While on the Julep website recently, I did discover that I can skip two subscriptions per year. That was another selling point for me! I also like the I earn points for every purchase.
Here are the items in my December Julep Maven Box….
As always, I’m a sucker for the packaging. I like that Julep always nicely coordinates the paper packing and the tissue. It always looks fancy. I am a great liker-of-fanciness. The mints were a nice touch, too! I really like the Length Matters Mascara. It’s so hard to find a mascara that lengthens your lashes without clumping. I’ve never been a fan of eyelashes that look like spider legs. After a couple of coats, I definitely noticed an improvement in my pitiful lashes. Honestly, I don’t know that I would by this by itself, (not as part of the subscription) because twenty dollars is a bit pricey for mascara. The red polish, Karissa, is the perfect shade of Christmas red! It is perfect with my Christmas sock monkey pajamas from Target. Is it acceptable to wear pajamas as clothes if your pedicure matches? If only…… And I aplogize for the giant foot picture if you are podophobic. It is really a thing.
I really like the Sienna polish,too. It is a fantasic metallic that goes well with everything. It was so shiny, I could almost see my reflection. Check out the awesome Cristalleria Fratelli Fumo wine glasses I purchased recently at TJ Maxx. I can’t wait to set a table with them! They are the same brand as the others I collect for the bar. I definitely don’t need more glasses, but there was no way I could ever resist the red……
A Julep Box would be perfect a perfect gift for the person that loves makeup and nail polish! You must order your Julep Maven Box NOW! Even Tequila agrees! ( I can never resist a cute cat picture!)
Do you have a favorite shade of red polish? Please share!
