I had been getting notices for awhile for the Julep Maven box. I finally decided to bite, though I’m not a nail polish fanatic.

Julep has their own product line and though it includes skincare and other items, the main focus is the polish. After receiving my first box, I later found out that Julep will often put out special edition “mystery” boxes.  (Find mystery box and other Julep reviews here.)

Now on to this month’s box:

Subscription Box Insanity: BarkBox (Jul ’15)

Meet Wednesday...& Bark Box!

Meet Wednesday…& BarkBox!

In case you were wondering if I was the only one partaking in the subscription box fun, the answer is a resounding no! Meet a beloved member of our little family, my fur-baby Wednesday!

There are a lot of great stories to tell you about Wednesday, and since I have you here as a captive audience, you will likely hear more than your fair share. Suffice it to say that she is a persnickety thing who is also possibly very spoiled. Here is the latest example, courtesy of dog-focused subscription service BarkBox!

Subscription Box Insanity: Little Lace Box (Dec. ’15)

I’m very excited about a subscription called Little Lace Box. Their motto is a box that is “for women who know they’re worth it”. A very tall order!

I missed out on LLB’s September box, which included some beautiful home items that I totally lusted after. I couldn’t purchase the box after the fact but was able to sign up for future boxes. (See my reviews from past boxes here.)

Subscription Box Insanity: Bespoke Post (Oct. ’15)

One man's subscription

One man’s subscription

Oh happy day! My husband’s Bespoke Post has arrived!

Hubby doesn’t take a shine to much…he doesn’t have the shopping bug like me. So of course when he decided that he wanted to sign up for this subscription, I was very supportive.

So far he’s loved the boxes that he’s opted in to. (See reviews for these here.) Being camera shy (as am I), there is his hand with the box. When he saw this picture, he laughed and said that perhaps he (his hand) would be “discovered” because of it and soon he would be traveling around the world as a hand model. As his agent, I’m the best person to contact about booking him. ;o)

Okay, so on to the review of the Ember box! Continue reading
