I have been enjoying my Julep boxes so much.  I get one each month, even though I don't blog about them all the time.  This one I just got the other day was really nice.  I am so glad I decided to become a Maven.  I'm now at the point where I can decline a box if I don't like what is in it, or if I don't have the money for it.  Nice.

So here is what I got this month:

Coral lip gloss with a metal tip that is really nice; a green-blue nail polish (it's darker than I thought it was going to be); a nail top coat that makes my nails iridescent (can't wait to try it); a gel eye liner; and a box of Junior Mints (gone already).

Here is my Julep nail polish for this month.  All the colors are named after women.  This color is called Isla.  I didn't think I would like it, but I really do.

I missed taking my 8:30 a.m. picture yesterday.  I slept in.  But here are the ones for January 4, 5, and 7.  You would have only seen clouds and snow yesterday anyway.

Forget what the date says.  It's January 4, 2015.

January 7, 2015

More tomorrow.  Until later...



  1. As we have just recently become friends, I am not familiar with Julep boxes or Maven. Glad you were pleased with what you received though. The pictures are sure wintery! Stay warm.

  2. Julep is a company that makes cosmetics and nail polish. They are famous for their nail polish colors. I have found it really lasts too. A couple of coats will last without chipping for several weeks. A Maven is someone who subscribes to their program. I don't just look through their things and buy something, I actually get an email from them telling me what I will be getting that month. I can choose to accept it, change it to something else, or not get it at all

    It is very wintery here and COLD!!! Icy too. I'm trying to stay warm, but it's hard!

  3. Your fingernail polish looks nice. I have not worn any for awhile. We are having foggy days since Mon. Gonna be here a few days. I was cold all afternoon at work so I wore my sweatshirt jacket. I went on a walk with Phil and am a bit warmer now. It is winter in OR si I exoect the cold, could be worse. So far it has been mild. Hugs!!

  4. You have such beautiful nails!!! My hands look ancient! AND - I am ashamed to admit this - but I BITE my nails sometimes!!! Right now they look awful!! Or I should say - worse than usual!! When I want my hands to look good I use glue on nails! They last me about 5 days! I work with my hands so they are NOT pretty!
    It's COLD in Texas!!! In the teens tonight - something we don't do often!!!

  5. This color is an interesting shade. I've seen some of the other colors & they are really pretty! I think the
    mints were a nice addition to your package.It's nice when you reach the level to have shipment choices.
    It was absolutely frigid yesterday! I had to go to the bank & waiting for the bus.....brrrrr! Stay warm ,my friend!
