Ever since we met oh so many years ago Bob and I have had an on again, off again long distance relationship. A few years back I joked that we’ve been apart as long as much as we’ve been together, even while married. This isn’t exactly true–but sometimes it’s felt that way!
Many people talk about not being able to handle something like that–but the thing is that when you’re put in a situation that you don’t wish to be in (like me being apart from my hubby so often–we’re one of those couples that actually likes each other, haha) you have two choices–to be miserable and complain or to try to make the best of it.
I’ve always been a glass half full kind of gal so anytime we have to be apart I try my best to make the most of it. I see the lonely nights as much needed me time–BBC Drama, long bubble baths, and catching up on my ginormous stack of magazines.
This is possibly our last time apart for a long while since Bob is planning on getting out of the military soon. I decided to go out with a bang–and the other night treated myself to a super fun girls night in.
Once the kids were in bed I broke out the popcorn, popped on a guilty pleasure Netflix Show (White Collar…shhhhh) and gave myself a *much* need pedicure!
I was super excited to have received my very first Julep Maven box just in time! I adore products that really feel like presents–and as you can see it felt like my birthday when I opened my box!
Ever since having kids I’ve long since given up on my fingernails. As a busy work from home mommy I just don’t have the time to keep up with the chips and dents they get so easily when I paint them.
I’ve always been a stickler for a least having my toes look pretty, however. You get a lot more bang for your buck in a pedicure since it can last a lot longer–plus painted tooties are just fun!
My Julep Maven box came with everything I needed for a fun pedicure– The Best Pedi Creme Ever and two Nail Polish Bottles. My custom picked style is American Beauty so I was sent Eva and Renee (my middle name–and no I didn’t know that when I picked my style–but it fits!)
