I received my email from Birchbox a little while back letting me know that my September Birchbox was on its way. Awesome. Then, just the other day, it kind of dawned on me and I mentioned to my mom how I still hadn’t gotten my samples yet for the month but my mind has been kind of all over (per usual) and I didn’t check the tracking number. I guess I wasn’t that concerned. Then, on Thursday, I received a new email from Birchbox stating that there was a mix-up with shipping and my September box was on its way. For the “inconvienence”, they gave me 100 Birchobx points! Way to go, Birchbox customer service! Nearly before I even realized there was a problem you corrected it and gave me points to purchase some beauty products. Thanks, Birchbox!
As far as my Julep Maven subscription: I’m canceling this month. September was, in deed, my last Julep Maven review. If I can get my October box for free, I’ll review it, obviously, but if I don’t earn a free box by later today, I’m going to go ahead and cancel. Its not that I don’t like Julep’s products and I am obsessed with nail polish and am a firm believer that you can not have too many colors but I’m ready to explore other products.
If you’re interested in becoming a Julep Maven, you can sign up by clicking here: Become a Julep Maven You can receive your first month’s box for $0.01 by using the promo code COLOR2012 at checkout. (I’m already a Maven so I haven’t used this code and can not vouch for it. HOWEVER, every single month they have a coupon code out there and it is usually for a first time subscriber to get their box for a penny. Just google it.) If you like it and want to receive future boxes, it’s $19.99 per month, free shipping and you can cancel at anytime. You can also review all the boxes for the month and choose another box if you’d like which is something I really like at being a Julep Maven.
I expressed in my last post about my Julep Maven box (the September review) that I was curious to see what October’s box had in store since Halloween is approaching. Here’s what each Julep Maven box consists of this month:
I was classified as an “It Girl” but have opted for the “Boho Glam” box two out of my three months. (I love that the white crackle is named Hermione btw) I would stick with my “It Girl” box this month if I were to receive one.
Like I said, unless ONE OF YOU reading right now, subscribes to become a Julep Maven by clicking the specific link I provided thus awarding me with the one Julep Maven credit I need to receive my October box for free, I will be cancelling later today. So, if YOU are curious about how you’d like being a Julep Maven, please sign up here: BECOME A JULEP MAVEN AND EARN ME A FREE BOX FOR OCTOBER Just use the monthly coupon code and get three (or two depending on your box) nail polishes for a penny, then cancel. All you’ve got to lose is a penny and, if you’re lucky, you’ll find one on heads on the ground somewhere. 🙂
I won’t be saving my $19.99 per month though, even canceling my Julep Maven subscription. No, I’ll be spending $21 per month to receive a monthly box of samples from GossyBox USA. YES! Before I signed up for Birchbox, I had read about GlossyBox and was upset that it did not ship in the US at the time. More recently, I have been checking out GlossyBox again and they do ship in the US now and have for a few months.
I much prefer receiving boxes of various types of beauty products each month, like Birchbox. As much as I love doing my nails and collecting polishes, I don’t want to receive the same type of products each month. Being a Julep Maven was fun while it lasted, but I’m excited to receive my very first GlossyBox!
Thanks for reading! and thanks for even considering becoming a Julep Maven for me and for you! A BIG thank you to anyone of you who does sign up to be a Julep Maven today. I will promote your blog, or your twitter or give you an amazing kick-ass shout-out, I don’t know. It would be pretty awesome to get my very last Julep Maven box for free. If you sign up, you’ll receive your own Julep Maven sign-up link which will earn you points toward a free month’s box and I will post your link so hard its not even funny. Promise.
I’m excited to review my soon-to-arrive Birchbox for September and even more excited to review my very first GlossyBox! Check back later for the reviews!
Thanks again! Love, GK
