Julep July 2013

Recommended Posts

So lets hope July goes a lot better than June. Wonder if they are doing something special for the 4th of July? Also I believe July is their anniversary month.

Last year, they had two glitter polishes since Canada Day is July 1st, so Canadian subscribers received the Canadian polish, and US subscribers received the other one (America the Beautiful, I think). They were both beautiful, and I think that might have been the first month when we could add a polish, so Canadians could add the US polish and vice versa. Their anniversary is in August, so we still have a couple of months to go for that.

Thanks for letting me know! When I googled it some post said July some said August. I hope they do something like that again I would love a patriotic nail polish.

Because of their shipping schedule, the anniversary choices go up on July 20th, and that is considered the August box. Going through my email, I see that the first boxes for the whole program shipped out in early August 2011. I signed up the day after the program launched, and that first box shipped on August 8th of that year, and then the choices for September went up on August 20th. (And I was actually a salon client when I lived in Seattle, and I just realized I received a survey about whether I would be interested in a polish sub on July 26 of that year, so they went from surveying customers to sub launch in about two weeks, in case anyone was wondering about that.)

That's so cool that you have been with them from the beginning. I really hope July and August are more like May than June lol.

I think I'm skipping this month. I just discovered other indie brands and kind of went overboard. Like waaaaay overboard. icon_redface.gif

Whoooo July already! smile.gif I'm just hoping for something other than cremes this month...could use some more interesting finishes in my collection. 

 

Also interested to see what the beauty products they send out this month are...hmmm...

I would love a sort of reverse of last year's 4th of July: Blue micro glitter with larger red glitter and white/silver stars.

Yes! I would even take foil polish and I don't like the look of foil polish.

That sounds awesome I would love that!

 

Hopefully this month they do something really cool like May! I had pretty much a dupe for every color last month, so I hope this month is different.

Yes to different finishes! As much as I enjoy julep I always feel like they're a bit behind the curve with trends. Although they did get the sea salts out in decent timing with other brands.

Absolutely agreed!

any guesses for what the product of the month will be?
The first guess that popped in my head was sunscreen but I'm probably way off! I really hope it's hand and nail related whatever it is!

sunscreen makes sense, but they already have that spf 30 product and then we got the DD cream that also had spf... so I'm not sure if they'd roll out another one. I also hope it's a more hand/nail related item, I'm over the beauty stuff!

I would love it if the product for this month is nail related, but I'm wondering if they'll continue to send us more makeup related items? Lipstick & mascara in May, DD creme & concealer in June... maybe blush or eyeshadow this month? Just a wild guess!

 

I've been looking for 'coming soon' products on the Julep site, since they had the DD creme up well in advance of the June box, but I don't really see anything new on there!

    • A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results.    Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it.  Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapors to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapors.  Take the steam vapors for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt.  Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads.  Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer.
    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.
