July Glam Bag

So I have been receiving my glam bags for 2 months now and I am finally taking the time to showcase all the amazing items inside my 3rd months bag. I think this might have been my favorite bag yet why I’m so excited to share it with you all!! Plus the actual bag was the cutest; a multicolored mesh

So what’s inside my Glam Bag:


Circus by Andrea’s Choice: Somersault(yellow) nail color

Buxom Lips: Big & Healthy lip polish

Juice Beauty: Green Apple SPF15 Moisturizer

NU.ME: HydroPunch hydrating conditioner

YES to cucumbers: On the go facial towelettes

I was most excited about the lip polish, being that I have been playing around with lip colors a tad; it looks rather fierce. Those facial towelettes; a lady can always use those. Maybe a review or two will be in the near future.

Stay Tuned,

I got my March Julep Maven Box!!

I have received my March Boho Glam Box from Julep Maven!

So you all know, I was super excited right. I tracked down my box(lol), and made sure it was sitting patiently waiting for me.

In my Julep Maven March Boho Glam Box, I received:

Julep Elixir Organic Moroccan Oil, which contains healing, conditioning, and anti-aging properties. This product can be used daily to hydrate and nourish skin, smooth split ends, and soften cuticles. It is easily absorbed and lightweight, and is gentle enough for all skin types,including acne prone.

I can’t wait to use this product! I have heard about many of the benefits and in my opinion,I think it should be a staple product to through in your handbag for everyday use. It is equipped with a dropper for easier use which I find awesome. The oil is also definitely lightweight, I tried it and it didn’t weigh my skin down, neither did it have any smell.

Alicia Julep Nail Vernis is a sunny salmon creme. It is perfect pedicures and fresh, modern manicures.

When I saw this I immediately though salmon. Definitely one of those bright summer months colors.

Portia Julep Nail Vernis is a sheer tropical blue with glittery sparkles that will remind you of a day on the beach.

Okay so this is my favorite out of the two, I think I’m secretly addicted to glittery nail polish! It totally reminded me of the blue ocean water with the sun beaming down on it. Ah, the joys of Caribbean islands. (Ok back to NYC brisk air) this color I will fall in love with!

The sweet people over atJulep Maven also threw in a emery board. Although, I was looking forward to another Julep chocolate, this was awesome. Hopefully, I will start learning to do designs with my Julep Maven Stuff.

So be sure to head over to and get your customized Box, or even purchase a any specific item that you might like.

Until next time….



Received goodies today in the mail!!!!


I got these products from the lovely lady over at Naturaluxuries, can’t wait to try them out and share it with you all.

I also got another exciting package which I’ll keep a secret for now. Be sure to check back to see what the mystery package is, and a product review using my new Naturaluxuries Products

Until next time….


Julep Maven “Boho Glam”

Look what I got!!!!!!! My Julep Maven box!


I am so in love!!!

The best part about this subscription was that I didn’t have to wait until the next month, to receive my box. I got the opportunity to still get a February box, which was shipped to me sooner than I thought it would be. Exceedingly, great service!

In my Boho Glam: February Box, I received the gold Oscar and blue Marisa nail polishes, alongside a Cuticle Oil and Julep Chocolate.

I am so in love with the Oscar polish…. When topped with a top coat, the Oscar polish does not feel rough(as many other gold nail polishes do).

If you would like purchase a subscription or check them out visit

It is worth it!!

Until next time….
