who likes free stuff??

I know I like free stuff, and I also like trying new things. 

Jen-erous begins with JEN (that’s me) and so I’ve been thinking… “What should I do with some of the extra stuff I have from all my many box kit subscription services?”  And then my husband said, “You should do a give away!” To which I said, “Was I thinking out loud?”

Our little moment has transpired into the very first (let’s see if anyone would be interested in) give away. I’m giving away a box to one lucky person. The BOXACROSS BOX give away will contain 5+ items from some of the various subscription services that I get every month. Who knows what will be inside? 

  • Maybe a Julep Nail Polish
  • Maybe skincare products from BirchBox
  • Maybe beauty products from My Glam
  • Maybe natural products from Eco Emi
  • Maybe eco-friendly products from Conscious Box
  • Maybe vegan skin care from Green Grab Bag
  • Maybe fragrance from GoodeBox

Once the winner has been chosen and the box has been sent, I’ll post a photo of what was inside!  If you’re interested and want to win, make sure you’re following my blog and comment on this post. If more people are interested, there might even be a second box!! 

So tell your friends about my little blog, tell them to follow and enter to win… 

To enter - subscribe to my “newsletter” - one luck person will be chosen at random for my first super duper special give away…  (click this link to subscribe to my newsletter and be eligible for the giveaway)

Did I mention that it’s a FREE giveaway? I’ll even pay shipping (postage) to anywhere in the USA!

I’m still working out the date for when the winner will be chosen, but go ahead and sign up so you don’t miss out. One entry per person, once the winner is chosen I will contact them to get the mailing address and announce the winner!!

Who’s excited about this? I know I am!

Julep Polish Sofia

I opted in for the surprise St. Patricks Day box from the Julep Maven program in March 2012.

I just noticed last night something very special about one of the nail polishes… it glows in the dark. 

The color is called Sofia, a very sheer spring green with aqua sparkles. Alone the color isn’t really all that great, what I mean is it’s not very flattering when worn alone on your nails. But I like to try every color out and see how it goes on before layering. I like using it as a top coat with darker colors like  Elizabeth and give some extra sparkle.

The added bonus with this color is that it GLOWS in the dark! When worn alone on nails, 2-3 coats, you get some fun glowing nails. It doesn’t glow as much when put on as a top coat. But since it wasn’t marked as a GITD nail product, I consider that a little bonus. My daughter loved seeing my glowing nails when I put her to bed last night! :)
