New Monthly Box: Julep Maven

My Birchbox subscription finally ended, and I decided that I wanted to try something new.  One of my friends recommended that I try Julep Maven, and with their first box free, I thought… why not??  I wasn’t disappointed, and I have really enjoyed getting a new box each month.  Some of the pros of the Julep Maven box are:

  • The primary focus is nail polish, which, as you know, I LOVE.
  • You get to take a fun “style quiz” that pairs you up with a general style they think you’ll enjoy.  Not to worry, though, if you disagree.  You can always switch before your box goes in the mail! (See the next bullet point!)
  • You have a window each month that allows you to choose from a number of options for what you will be sent that month.  This is awesome because it gives you an opportunity to make changes and pick things you really want.
  • You can skip months if nothing looks good!
  • There’s an option to add items to your box each month at a huge discount from their normal prices.
  • Each item or box you order earns you points, which can later be applied to discount your orders!
  • The product quality is great.  The nail polish colors are fun and vibrant.  I am IN LOVE with their lip gloss (I picked Enchanted).  It doesn’t get sticky, lasts a long time, and really moisturizes.  Plus, the color is fabulous!
  • They have tons of promotions each month, so it’s easy to get good deals on their products.
  • You can get your first trial box FREE!  Just click HERE to get started!
This is the first box I picked after my welcome box!  They seem to always include a little surprise with your order.  This time it was this adorable pink and blue candy stick!

Friday Favorites: My First Birchbox

Have you heard of Birchbox?  I hadn’t until recently, when a good friend of mine signed up and posted photos of her first box.  Once I looked into it, I decided to order a subscription for myself as a reward for submitting the final draft of my Law Review comment.  (I think it’s important to reward yourself after working hard on a project!)

And… What better way than a surprise gift that I get in my mailbox EVERY MONTH?!  Birchbox sends you a box full of beauty product samples once a month for only $10/month including shipping.  Heck, for most online orders, shipping alone costs almost that.  And this way, I get introduced to products that 1) I wouldn’t find on my own and 2) I would be too scared to spend the money on a full size.  Oh, and I have something to look forward to every month!  It’s like getting a birthday present in the mail EVERY month!

If you want more information, or you want to sign up, click here.

Anyway, here’s my first box!  I can’t wait to try all of these samples! (The chocolate is already gone… oops!)
