This post is going to be all about my August 2013 Julep Maven box! The theme for this month was "Garden Party" and the new product is the Doublestep Foot Treatment and Friction Stick. I went with my original style, "Boho Glam", this month since it was the one that had the best colors, in my opinion. It's also the two year anniversary of the Julep Maven program, so Julep did some special things to celebrate, including releasing a new trio of polishes called the "Champagne Trio", which I added-on to my box.
Here is the special little gift quote for this month. Julep decided to stop including the style cards, which I think makes a lot of sense. They're cute and all, but I never keep mine for more than a month and, with all the boxes Julep sends out, that's a lot of wasted ink and paper. Not only will it save Julep money, but it was also be much better for the environment. I like that they still included the quote, though. I keep the ones I like the most in case I need a quick dose of "inspiration". I think my favorite quote so far is the one they had in July about salt water. The gift this month is a packet of forget-me-not seeds, which fit with the theme of the box beautifully. Unfortunately, I lack a green thumb (I can't seem to grow anything; everything I've tried has either not sprouted at all or molded. I think I have a tendency to over water plants...) so we'll see if I even try to plant these.
This new product Julep released in this month's Maven box is their Doublestep Foot Treatment and Friction Stick.
Next are the Boho Glam polishes I got: Francis and Lois.
Finally, I couldn't resist adding on the special Champagne Trio!
Now for some swatches! Please excuse how jumpy this is getting; I actually have been writing this on and off for a while now...
Overall, another excellent box with beautiful polishes and a great product! I am a little nervous for September's box; Julep posted a poll on Facebook so people could vote on which product they wanted in the next box and...I already owned all the products! I love trying new things, so I'm a little sad there won't be a brand new product in the next box. Depending on polish colors, I might end up going with the It Girl box next month. We'll have to see what happens!
Thanks for reading! <3!
