Hello! Happy Mother's Day! This is a great time of year to thank your mom for incubating you inside of her body for 9 months and then expelling you into the world in horrific manner! But seriously, moms are super important (dads are too! But they get their own day coming up in June), everyone has one, and no body would be here if it wasn't for all the sacrifices moms make every day for us! I went and saw my mom and dad yesterday (we didn't want to deal with the crazy crowds that are surely out and about today) and my husband and I saw my mother-in-law last weekend (they wanted to watch the Blackhawks vs. the MN Wild game) so I have today to relax and reflect upon all the wonderful maternal love happening today!
Also I get to make a blog post! And possibly make some videos! And then make more blog posts! Yay for keeping up! For this post, I'm gonna to show you guys what I got in my May 2014 Julep Maven box. This is a special box since this is the release of the brand new Julep Plie Wand!
First of all, I want to thank you guys; I think someone used my referral link to sign up for a Maven box since I had way more Jules (Julep's reward points) than I thought I did! In fact, I was able to get two free polishes this month, which is totally awesome and I seriously can't thank you guys enough!
I went with the Boho Glam (my "official" style profile) this month; the moment I saw the color swatches in the blog, I knew that it was perfect for me. Admittedly, I loved almost all the colors this month, and I'm a little sad I couldn't have added one or two more (you're only allowed three add-ons, and I used all three).
The super big special deal this month is the release of the Julep Plie Wand, a special handle you can use with your Julep polishes to make painting your nails much easier!
And that's my box! Very, very happy with this box this month! The Plie Wand is pretty cool and, if it really does help me paint my nails better, will be an invaluable tool in my nail polishing arsenal.
Thanks for reading! <3
