Julep February 2018 collection

New Release: Julep — February 2018 “The Awe of Attraction”

Collection: Julep 2018 February “The Awe of Attraction”

Julep’s February 2018 collection consists of seven new shades of nail color and a new skincare product, So Awake Depuffing Gel Eye Cream (12 g for $38 / $30.40 Maven).

The new nail colors strike me as being decidedly fall-like, which is not really a bad thing as fall collections are typically my favorites!

Smitten in the Stars
Inspire endless intrigue with soft, moonstruck shades
in subdued sheers and cozy neutrals.

Haulage! beautyBOUTIQUE.ca by Shoppers Drug Mart (March 2017)

Well, my husband and I have basically spent the last several days cleaning up vomit, snot, and poop. Thanks, norovirus! Seriously, neither of us ever got this horrible bug until a few years ago, and suddenly it’s an annual thing. Of course, now that Peanut’s in preschool, life is an apocalypse movie every other weekend, too.

At this point, everyone has gotten sick but me, so I’m running on very little sleep and very little food (because I’m afraid I’m going to come down with symptoms soon and would rather not have to puke it all back). I’ve also been washing my hands a hundred times a day, so it’s eczema city on my hands, too. I sincerely hope you are all keeping healthy, because this sucks.

Here’s a haul post, because I haven’t been able to find the will to do very much else!

As I mentioned last week, Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada has been handing out $10 gift cards to their online beauty store, beautyBOUTIQUE, and well—I’ve been taking advantage.

Today and tomorrow, March 7–8, Shoppers are also running a Spend Your Points Plus promo in the form of a coupon you load onto your Optimum Card. I do not know whether this works online at beautyBOUTIQUE (their Twitter staff didn’t seem to know), but I redeemed my points, anyway, since I kind of wanted to use up the third $10 gift card I got. If the points don’t get added later on, I’ll just give the beautyBOUTIQUE people a shout to see if they’ll give me the bonus points.

Here’s what I hauled after redeeming 95k points. I spent CA$184, so in the end I paid $4 plus the tax on $184, which came to just under $27. Also, don’t forget that ebates.ca works with beautyBOUTIQUE, too! It’s 4% cashback today.
