Julep – February 2015 – The Afterglow Collection

Julep’s monthly boxes are always my favorite time of the month. I love getting all the goodies from them!

Julep is a beauty subscription box. For $24.99 a month (or $19.99 for a three-month pre-paid subscription), you’ll receive three full sized products, catered to your beauty profile.

Also, you can click here to receive your first box for 50% off with the code WOW!

The February collection was titled the Afterglow Collection, featuring 10 new polishes, a “special gift” polish from Jane Park, a new eye brightener, glow highlighting powder, a fan brush, and two new lipgloss shades.

Here’s what I got:

I received the “Boho Glam” box (in the small purple box).

As Add-ons I received:

Here are the polishes:

From L to R: Hazel, Brandis, Hartleigh, Ada, Meta trio – Tilda, Bjork, Tyra

Here’s the make-up:

2

From L to R: Glow Highlighting Powder, Fan brush, Illume Eye Brightener, Blank Canvas face primer

My total for this month was $56. The retail of everything I received is $270!!! The Maven pricing would have been $216. I think that makes $56 an absolute steal!

I love my box yet again. Julep just seems to take all my money these days!

Julep – January Maven 2015 – The Chrysalis Collection

Julep’s monthly boxes are always my favorite time of the month. I love getting all the goodies from them!

Julep is a beauty subscription box. For $24.99 a month (or $19.99 for a three-month pre-paid subscription), you’ll receive three full sized products, catered to your beauty profile.

Also, you can click here to receive your first box for 50% off with the code WOW!

The January collection was titled The Chrysalis Collection, featuring 9 new polishes, new Luxe Lip Treatments, two new eye glider shades, and two new Orbital eye shadows.

Here’s what I got:

1

I once again switched from my normal Boho Glam style profile to the January It Girl Profile which included:

  • Janae ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Margit ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Shelly ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)

As add-ons I received:

  • Casey ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Luna ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Holographic Chevron Nail Decals ($3.99)
  • Metamorphic Top Coat in Tyra (freebie for all Mavens who took their box! – currently unavailable for purchase)
  • Glycolic Hand Scrub (freebie for taking three add-ons! – $23/ $18.40 Maven Price)
  • Baby box of Junior Mints!

Here are the polishes:

2

My total for this month was $41. The retail of everything I received would have been at east $100 (not 100% sure on the full retail value because there isn’t a listing for the Metamorphic topcoats yet!). Even the 20% Maven pricing would have made the box at least $80. That’s at least a 50% savings!

If you want a colorful box that you’ll be excited to get every month I would highly suggest checking Julep out!

Like Twice Freebie!

I recently found an awesome website called liketwice.com. This is a site where people can sell old, lightly used high end clothing products and accessories, and then customers can purchase them at up to 90% off! The great part about this site is that all you have to do is ship them your items! They handle the listing and picture taking. They list whatever they can sell and whatever can’t be listed is donated to charity.

When I signed up, I used a friend’s referral link to receive a $10 credit (which you will receive as well if you sign up under my referral link provided above and below). I also received a $20 credit for downloading the Twice app for iPhones! Then I was ready to do some shopping.

I was looking into getting myself a new handbag. I had been using the same one since about March, and definitely needed a change. I found this Armani Exchange black satchel and fell in love!

Twice1

The estimated  retail of this purse (according to Twice) was $68. Twice had listed the purse for $27.95. Shipping was $4.95. I was able to get my hands on a 50% off code which took $13.97 off of the purse. I used my credit from joining and downloading the app to make my final purchase!

I saved at least $68 and got this purse absolutely FREE… YES FREE!!!

When I received it in the mail I was ecstatic. The bag is exactly as shown and described in the listing. I’m very happy with my purchase and love my handbag!

#BikiniReadyLifestyle

I received my Influenster voxbox last week and was so excited to try it!

I’m planning on doing a more thorough review on my #VitalityVoxbox tomorrow, but for now I want to talk about the Secret Weapon to my #BinikiReadyLifestyle sponsored by Bikini Ready Lifestyle’s new Energy Gummies!

“New Bikini Ready Energy Gummies are a great tasting vitamin B-12 supplement with caffeine that acts as an energy booster. Along with a healthy diet and exercise program, this scientifically advanced formula helps boost your metabolism. Bikini Ready Energy Gummies are a guilt-free pick me up.
Bikini Ready Energy Gummies will help you become a healthier, lighter you.

  • Boosts Metabolism
  • Increase Energy

KEY INGREDIENTS:Vitamin B12, Caffeine”

That’s what the website says about this product. It’s a healthier alternative to coffee!

 

My secret weapon to having a #BikiniReadyLifestyle is something so simple, but most of us forget about. It’s self confidence. Personally, I have been so insecure about my body for 99% of my life. However, I have a wonderful boyfriend and fantastic friends who have pushed me into being a more confident person. I now do feel comfortable wearing a bikini. There were summers growing up where I wouldn’t even put shorts on because I was so insecure. Sure, I’m not stick skinny and I’ve never claimed to be, but I am beautiful in my own body.

This is my body, not yours, and your opinion of my body does not matter to me. 😀

Stay tuned for a full review on my Vitality Voxbox!

If you would like to join Influtenster and try some products for yourself, leave your e-mail in the comments and I’ll send you an invitation! Trust me, it’s well worth it!
