I know I've said this before but seriously Julep is the BEST! I love Julep so much, they have what I think are some of the best polishes. I use alot of them for nail art, and I NEVER have an issue with them chipping or not wearing long enough. Well just shy of a week ago shortly after choosing my Maven box for the month (I couldn't choose just one so I got the upgrade), Julep contacted me and said they had a surprise for me and they needed my shoe size. My shoe size? So I chatted with the girls in the Julep Swap group on Facebook and there was speculation that it could be flip flops, flats, or moisturizing socks. I never expected it would be this fantastic.
It started when I got a knock on the door today from the UPS man. Weird, because I wasn't expecting a package that would be delivered by UPS. I made sure to check the address before I accepted the HUGE box that was now sitting on my porch, it was mine. I got it inside just to read it was from JULEP! EEEEK! My heart skipped a beat, my 'surprise' was here! Here are the photos before I reveal the surprise...
How beautiful is just the box?
This is the card that was attached to the top of the giftbox...
I opened the box to find the most beautiful shoes I have ever laid my eyes on. I was hyperventilating, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Christian Louboutin Patent Leather Heels that retail at Nieman Marcus right now for $795. I still think I am dreaming. I am a stay am home mom with 2 kids under the age of 5, never did I think I would ever own Christian Louboutin's. I am so grateful and amazed at this amazing gift from Julep. This couldn't come at a more perfect time either. This year is my 5 year wedding anniversary with my husband! Julep has me as a Maven for life, as if I wasn't already, I am for sure now! A HUGE THANK YOU to all of Julep!!!
Also, in the same box was my monthly Maven box which I had upgraded! I think I've upgraded all but 1 or 2 months since they began the upgrade option.
This month the upgrade was an additional $5 making the total upgrade $55. However, they added the white lacquer Julep jewelry box, and two additional polishes Oscar and Ellie. Pictured above the polishes in the lacquer box from left to right are Oscar, Laura, Marion, Julianne, Joan, Helen, Ginger, Sally, Ingrid, Claudette, and Rebel. Also included was the Freedom Polymer Top Coat, Oxygen Nail Treatment, and a free extra an eyelash curler. P.S. There were also 2 heart shaped chocolates but I ate them while I was in shock over the shoes haha! They were yummy!
I plan to get the holos Ginger and Rebel swatched as soon as we get some sun to show how holo it really is! They are gorgeous though and can't wait to see them really shimmer.
Overall thoughts on my February Julep Maven box: How can I not say I am absolutely thrilled! There are so many extras and freebies in the the upgrade box even before I got the shoes. The Christian Louboutin's leave me absolutely speechless though. Julep is AMAZING! I have said that since becoming a Maven and will continue to say it! Thanks for checking out my box and if you haven't become a Maven yet what are you waiting for? Click on my referral link tab at the top of the page and click on the Julep one! Who knows, maybe it will be your turn next time!
