 These last few days have been a complete roller coaster for me. My grandmother passed away on Friday and on Monday, we had her services. I came home to my July Julep box late Monday afternoon but just wasn't that excited about it. Forgot I even picked a box.

 I ended up picking the "it girl" box. I opened the box and then there it was...
I opened Fiore, then Nellie, then Marjorie. My heart sank and my entire body went completely numb. My grandmothers name is Marjorie. I could not believe it. I had absolutely NO idea that one of the polishes in this box was named Marjorie. The orange was what drew me to pick this box in the first place. 

I quickly ran to show my mother and sister. Huge smiles came across their faces. It made me feel at complete peace with my grandmother. Almost as though she was saying "it's okay".

I emailed Julep right after this happened. I felt like they should know of how their company and service brought my family closer together. I just wanted to thank Shelly, whom I quickly got a personal response from the next day (my grandmothers birthday none the less), not just some pre-written auto response. 

Julep will forever have my business. They have hit their 2 year anniversary and I have had my 1 year with them. They have uplifted our spirits during such a dark time for us.

Thank you Julep! 

Oh, I have yet to swatch officially swatch this months colors. I have swatched them quickly on a nail and they are extremely opaque and the formula seems very smooth. 

I hope to get back into my normal posts tomorrow!

Hello, I am Stacey's Mom and Marjorie was my Mother. I would like to thank Julep for helping us a little on our journey of accepting my Mother's passing. It really made us smile. Your company is very upstanding and we are proud to be a part of it. Thank You!!
