The Julep one

My name is Kristy and I'm ADDICTED to Julep......

It all started about 6 months ago. I saw a bottle of Julep nail polish in Sephora. I'm a total bargain shopper so spending 15 dollars on a bottle of nail polish is out of my budget and just seems a little silly. 

So after coming home I looked online and learned all about the company. 

I came across a code that gave me the first box for free all i needed was 3.99 for shipping. The reviews were very black and white. 50% of people LOVE this company and 50% HATE them. So for 3.99 I took the gamble!

I got two polishes and a roll on cuticle oil. I use the oil daily and LOVE it! I also loved the colors I got. I didn't plan on blogging at the time so i did not take pictures. However, the lovely Leslie over at A Tech Girls Favorite things and musings did an awesome write up with pics of the same exact box hErE

That was in March and I have taken every month since! 

I honestly could write 10 pages of my adoration for this company, but I will just list 10 reasons: 

1.) They provide tutorial videos on youtube of new products : The company's founder talking about DD creme

2.) You can customize your box to exactly what you want. You can also get great add on box deals. 

3.) Customer service is fast and very friendly. 

****Pulls out soapbox****

This is huge for me! I don't care how special your product is, if your company does not have good customer support I will not buy from you.

****Puts soap box away ****

ahem anyways.....

 I have had one damaged item that was replaced within two business days. And one item that arrived without product inside the tube, it was also replaced quickly. Julep apologized in both cases and sent a follow up email to be sure i was satisfied with the replacements

4.) you can cancel or pause your sub as needed. 

5.) packaging so cute and feminine! Its like getting a birthday present every month !!

6.) free shipping and 20% off purchases on the site. 

7.) You fill out a profile and theres a cutesy little quiz to determine your "style" but you can switch it up as much as you'd like. 

8.) Polish lasts even though I wash my hands 30 times a day

9.) The polish is 4 free. that means there is no formaldehyde, 
formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl pathalate. 

10.) They are now offering beauty products!

I just got July's box shipping confirmation and I expect to get it the 1st or 2nd of July. When it comes I will take pictures and do a review of it. I'm super excited for this box! 

20 Dollars a month and you get "Jules" for accepting monthly boxes, referring people, and making purchases. 

Here's my referral link :D

also make sure to use code FREEBOX to get your first box free ( just pay 3.99 shipping)

Welcome Post!

Hey Gals!

Welcome to my blog! Everyones blogging about something these days, and to be honest i frequently look to blogs for honest opinions and reviews about products. TV commercials are 99% crap, and i suppose its time for me to jump on the bandwagon and start offering my opinions as well :D

Who am I?
I am a 30 year old Stay at home mom and full time student. Right out of high school I worked at Subway and managed a store in Florida for two years while I got my CDA (child development degree) After that I worked in preschool for 10 years. I LOVED it! When my boy turned 2 it really hit me how much i was missing while working full time. My husband and i worked out some finances and i was able to stay at home with him. He's 5 and starts kindergarten this year. I also have a beautiful baby girl who will be 2 in december. Ive been blessed to spend my days at home with them and take classes online towards my bachelor's degree. 

I have a ton of things i want to write about and i have been thinking about starting a blog for some time now. So i will wrap this up here now and tomorrow I shall write about Julep!
