Mister Postman, please look and see if there's a letter in your bag for me

Last night I felt like a child on Christmas morning. I received three packages in the mail. I love receiving things in the mail other than bills. Boo!

I knew that my Mama would be sending me a package filled with stickers, paper and other goods for scrap-booking. What I had forgotten was that I had signed up for another service similar to Birchbox, it's called Julep.  As we know I have an obsession with nail polish.  This monthly service will only help me feed my addiction to nail polish. 

Here is a little snip it from the website about what the Julep offers:

Well I got my first box yesterday, and it did not disappoint!  The theme of the February box was the Oscars. I love everything about the Oscars, the movies, the glam, the actors, the awards, everything.  

I haven't tried out the nail polish yet, I will review the polish once I've used it. This morning I used the Julep hair Topcoat it smells amazing! I will have to see how it holds up all day.

They even included a chocolate Oscar. Loved it! It was such a fun box to open and it was packaged so perfectly. I can't wait to receive my March box.

On to the next box, Birchbox sent me this fabulous trial of skin care. This box was sent to me free of charge, in addition to my monthly box. SCORE!

I've only used a couple of the products so far, but I do love them. I will review them once I have used them for a while.

Last but not least. My Mama's box of scrapbook items was awesome! She also sent some more of these beauties for me.WOOT!

What fun things have you received in the mail lately?


  1. Does your mom wanna adopt an exotic (so I've been told) 20-something year old daughter? From what I've been reading so far, mom's got it together!

    I love to see the bond that moms have with their kids, daughters especially. xx

  2. Didn't you love this bonus box?! I'm loving the moisturizers, but I have to say I wasn't that impressed with the cleanser or the eye make up remover.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
