NOTD ~ Julep Niecy & Mandy

Posted on: March 31, 2012


I received my Julep maven box this month in the It Girl. As you know I am an American Beauty but this month I liked the It Girl box better so thats what I got. Easy peasy one two three! The box came immaculately packaged, as always with a bottle of Niecy, a rich hot pink, Penelope, a soft baby pink and Jessica, a soft baby blue. The extra treats for me were some chocolate Easter eggs, foam toe separators and a make up bag. The make up bag is just the right size, has pockets built in and has a cute zipper pull

I am wearing Niecy and Mandy in my half & half manicure, which, by the way I do believe to have invented this look. I have not seen anyone else do it. I’ve seen a different color on each nail, I’ve seen the “ombré” effect of 5 colors shades from one color, but i have not seen the half & half. Whether you like it or not, I do so I will continue coming up with different combinations. Not that everyday is a half & half day, just those days when I can’t choose which color I want to wear!

Now back to Julep, you all know how much I love this company by now, but there is one aspect that hasn’t been talked about. Did you know you can send your maven box to a friend? Now think about this, let’s say your friend who lives three states away is having a birthday and you totally forgot to get anything off in the mail to her! Or you are on a cruise and realize the date? You can ask Julep to send her your maven box for that month. How great would that be as a birthday gift? The only down side is you won’t have your box but I’m sure Julep would help a girl out. If you had Julep send the box you would never have to be concerned with packaging because theyalways package so nicely and there is usually an extra treat inside too. Anyway, keep that in mind for your friend’s birthday. I would say for best friends only! Just one more reason why I love this company.
I talked with the Maven Team on Friday about the promo code to still get your first box for one penny, and that is still going on. They charge you one penny only. No shipping, no tax, just one penny. It’s not free, but you can’t get any closer to free than that.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
