Julep Maven: November 2012 (American Beauty)

I was over the moon for OPI’s Suede polishes a few years back and just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see how Julep’s Suede finish polishes measured up!

For the first time in a long time I ended up sticking with my normal style: American Beauty. My box included 3 individually wrapped nail polish remover pads, Pink Grapefruit Body Frosting, and 2 suede finish polishes: Amber and Brit.

Now, usually I post my boxes before I’ve had to try every product – but this time I’ve tried and loved every single one. I’ll be doing full polish reviews of Amber and Brit over on The Daily Varnish. I have oodles to say about the products in this box as well as a quick run down of the new Julep Jules reward program so I’d love it if you clicked below to keep reading!

Review: Hugo Naturals Shea Butter & Vanilla Soap

Charlotte finally got a Whole Foods, y’all! It seems a bit ridiculous that it took as long as it did but I’m happy that the Charlotte store has finally opened. Of course, being me, the first time I checked it out I went straight to the health and beauty section. A few things caught my eye. One being the Mineral Fusion polish Whole Foods carries. I didn’t pick a polish up (yet) but I’m definitely considering it. So if you’ve tried the Mineral Fusion polishes let me know what you think!

Ok, anyway, on to the point of this post. Another thing that caught my eye while I was at Whole Foods was the Hugo Naturals display. I’m a Lush devotee but there is no Lush in Charlotte. So when I saw a rather large display full of artisan soap I was immediately drawn in. There were so many soaps to choose from. They even had Halloween themed soap with a black cat! But when I smelled the Shea Butter & Vanilla soap there was no question. It had to be mine.
