A Few Things Friday!

Happy Friday!!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a Friday post!  My randomly busy summer schedule has been getting in the way of my blog writing! Luckily, my summer schoolwork will be ending soon, so I can get back to posting!

I was looking on Pinterest the other day when I stumbled upon Stephanie Ryan Art.

The embedded link takes you to her Etsy shop, which is filled with tons of bright and beautiful watercolor paintings!

I have decided that a few of these painting will look FANTASTIC in my new apartment!

Here are a few of my favorites!

I love how colorful and vibrant this one is!

I think it would look great in the living room or the kitchen!

I love that this one is a heart! Super cute!!

Each of these paintings would look perfect in a shabby chic picture frame!

I just love how happy all these paintings are!

I think they will add some fun to my new apartment with Kylie!  Our current apartment is very dull and quite ugly!

I can’t wait to move in and decorate our new one!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Julep Maven Review – June 2014

Hi everyone!

I got my June Julep Maven box a few days ago, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

For those of you that don’t know, here is a little information on Julep.

Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish subscription box!

Each month, a box is mailed to your house full of fun nail and beauty products!

Become a Maven today and sign up with this link!


I got this box for FREE by using some of the Jules I’ve earned through referrals!! Super exciting, right?!

Let’s get to the box!

ImageHere she is!!


  • Two Breathable nail colors
  • Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat
  • Three Pixie Sticks
  • Coupon
  • Inspirational Quote

ImageHere’s this month’s inspirational quote.  I think it fits pretty well with the “Three Wishes” theme.


  • Ariana – Classic With a Twist – Enchanted berry iridescent chrome
  • Bergen – Classic With a Twist – Hazy blue-grey shimmer

I really like the colors that came in this month’s box, but I probably won’t be wearing them until the fall.  I think these colors are just a little too dark for the summertime.

Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat

I’m excited to try the base coat!  I haven’t used base coat in years, and it’s probably time I start using it again!

Along with a base coat, one of the Style Profile (Modern Beauty?) came with a top coat.  I REALLY wanted to try that, but I didn’t want to pay to add it on to my FREE box!  Hopefully, I’ll get the top coat in another box someday! I might just breakdown and buy it though!!

ImageThis is the second month in a row that Julep has included a coupon in the box!

I LOVE coupons, so I’m pretty excited about this!

This coupon doesn’t expire until July 31, 2014!  That gives me plenty of time to use it!

In the fine print, it says that the coupon can be used twice per customer! What a deal!!!

What did you get in your June Maven box? Did you get a different coupon code?

Let me know!
