Julep’s May Maven Jazz Collection

Julep-May Jazz Collection

Julep-May Boho & Bombshell

Julep-May Classic with a Twist & It Girl

Julep-May Modern Beauty

Wow!!! I am very impressed with Julep’s May Jazz Collection. They had me when I saw the lipstick trios. I am so excited about this box. I have skipped the last couple of Maven boxes because I thought they were rather meh. However, this month, I am definitely ordering a Maven box. For May, I selected the Bombshell Maven box. Honestly, I don’t really want the nail polishes this month; I just want the lipsticks. Even still, this box looks like a great value and a girl can never have too many lipsticks. ūüôā I love Julep’s YouTube video for this lipstick collection. Click here if you want to see the lipsticks on real women.

So what do you think about Julep’s May Jazz Collection? Are you going to pass on a box this month or are you as excited as I am about it? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Little Black Bag: End of Month Temptations

I saw some cool jewelry on Little Black Bag that I couldn’t resist.¬†I just had to have these pieces and I didn’t bother to trade much. I guess with all this dissertation writing, you could say that I’m a woman on a mission and no time to waste. I can’t wait to see what these look like in person. Online they looked amazing and I could see each becoming an integral part of my accessories wardrobe. What do you think of my selections? What kinds of outfits would you wear these pieces of jewelry with? I’d love some suggestions.

March Julep Maven Preview

Julep-March Collection

Julep-March Boho & BombshellJulep-March Classic with a Twist & It GirlJulep-March Modern Beauty

I thought I would take the time to share what the options are for this month’s Julep Maven box. I signed up for a Bombshell box when my profile quiz said I was Classic with a Twist. However, each month I never know which box I am going to pick. This month is particularly difficult. Is it just me or does the March box look a little meh? For some crazy reason, nothing is jumping out as a must have. Maybe it’s all the unopened polishes I’m still working on that has me hesitating to get more. ¬†Right now, if I decide to buy a box this month, I am thinking about the Boho Glam box. If I skip this month, I think I will be doing a Sephora haul. Choices…choices…I feel so¬†indecisive. Help!!!!!!!!! What should I do?

If you’re a Julep Maven, which box are you picking for March?

Little Black Bag: Tricks of the Trade

Tricks of the Trade

My February Little Black Bag arrived. I haven’t had a chance to film yet, but I couldn’t resist opening my box. Although I am crazy busy working on the last chapters of my dissertation, I couldn’t just leave you high and dry. So, in the meanwhile, I decided to share what I have learned since joining Little Black Bag.

So here’s my advice:

  1. Do your handbag and/or accessory research. Sadly, the pictures featured on Little Black Bag do not always show the true color of the items being sold. So check pictures at other online sites and/or check with other members to get a true understanding of what you are purchasing.
  2. Double check the proportions of the bag you want to purchase. I’m¬†spatially¬†challenged, so the mere listing of a handbag’s dimensions is not enough to help me imagine how large or small a bag will be. I usually use a measuring tape and map out the¬†dimensions¬†of the bag I’m interested in to make sure it works well with my frame, which is tall and plus sized.
  3. Better trading comes with time, so I highly recommend opening your Little Black Bag with the handbag or accessory item you really want. Then trade up the jewelry and/or bonus items you receive.
  4. Use the site’s¬†chat room.¬†Chat with others and share your profile. PS.¬†This is where some of the best trading opportunities occur.
  5. Trading up in value is only helpful if the item you traded for is something you would enjoy if you couldn’t trade it any further.
  6. Be patient. Awesome trading usually takes time. Keep track of how many trading days you have left.
  7. Know the “real” trading value of the items in your bag. You can usually ask in the¬†chat room¬† “What’s the high” of whatever item you are considering trading. Remember, trading value shifts constantly depending on the popularity and availability of the item you have or want to trade for. Also, be sure to get multiple perspectives on your trade value.
  8. Pay attention to your trade offers, this will tell you what items are hot and which are not. For example, if you see a certain jewelry item being traded by a number of members do your best to stay away if you’re trying to trade your items up.
  9. Since Little Black Bag is based in Canada, don’t be afraid to spend the extra $3.00 to get your bag and accessories sooner. Otherwise you’ll be waiting for your items to be¬†delivered¬†for at least two weeks. I’m kind of impatient that way…if I buy, I want to wear it ASAP.¬†The extra $3.00 shortened my¬†delivery¬†time to less than a week and saved me a trip to the post office since you can direct UPS to just leave your package at your door without signature. (Hallelujah!!!)
  10. Remember, all’s fair in love and Little Black Bag trading. LOL!!! (Ok…maybe not everything is fair, so be nice to everyone.)
