Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

The Daily Find: A Free Halloween Treat from Julep



You may have already seen these ads circulating on Facebook. For the month of October, you can get a free 4-piece Halloween gift set selected from the Julep October Maven Collection with the code FREETREATS, which includes the festive nail colors and pencil pictured above.

You can use the orange if you have a daughter dressing up as a pumpkin, and the Stardust Finish polish is great for a dark fairy costume.

Though nothing in life is free, right? You do have to sign up for the Julep Maven monthly subscription, which you can cancel at any time. I have yet to test out any of the monthly beauty boxes on the web, but I like how the Maven box is customizable, so you can choose what you want to receive from their monthly collections. Subscription planes range anywhere from $19.99 to $39.99. I also like how you're not bound to just the monthly box. There are a lot of other products you can shop at Julep anytime, and having a subscription gives you a discount plus free shipping. You can get more info on Maven here.
