Influenster Love - How it all started

Where do I start?

Influenster is the the WHOLE reason I started this blog.  I joined Influenster and honestly forgot about it.  Then one day I got an email saying I was selected to get a VoxBox.  I remember thinking "What the heck is a VoxBox?  And why am I getting one?"  I did a quick search and found myself on the site and started to get really excited!  It all came back to me.  It had been about 2 months since I first signed up on the site and now I was getting a whole box of FREE STUFF!!  WOOO HOOO!!!  Then I soon realized that to fully complete the VoxBox tasks I needed a blog and thus Laurel Likes It was born.

Since then I have received numerous VoxBoxes (6 to be exact) and several other activities that have earned me badges (51 of these babies).  Here is a link to my Influenster Profile.  I look back at my initial reviews and see how much I've grown and how my style has stayed consistent but more comfortable now.

I have to be honest that when I see an Influenster email in my inbox I get ridiculously excited.  It's like, "They chose me??  YES!!"  Come to think of it, it's been a while since I got one so maybe posting this will hit their alert!  I have always loved trying out new things and now Influenster allows me to!  I have also always been a "very social young lady" as said on all my report cards so talking about the stuff I like and don't like comes naturally!

I have listed all the Influester inspired blog posts for you below.

Influenster will always hold a special place in my blog heart.  I hope that these past 2 years are just the start to a wonderful, long relationship.

And also this guy is the cutest!

Side note:  As I was typing this post up guess what popped up in my inbox??

New Changes to Julep Maven + Free Gift!!

So I'm so excited for 2 new changes to my Julep Maven subscription!! I was getting a little tired of the choices I was given each month so 2 months ago I used my last skip and then last month I sent my box to my sister for her birthday.

When I opened my email this morning to a new blog post from them I was pleasantly surprised that not only can you now select "I'm out this month" you can FULLY customize what you get in your box without upgrading to the Luxe subscription!!!

When Julep Maven first started they allowed you to have unlimited skips. However, before I joined they changed it so you only had 2 skips per year. This did not work for me and apparently I was not the only one! Sometimes the funds are just not right that month, right??

I have to say though that I am most excited for the customization. I was just able to select 3 items that I have wanted but have yet to come up in my monthly box! I was set to get an eye lid primer and eye shadow. Now I'm getting some gold decal strips, nail and cuticle pen and a corrector pen.

New for this holiday season are two promotional FREE gifts when you sign up for Julep Maven!  This subscription is the PERFECT gift for someone you just don't know what to get.  They are able to choose what they want!

My idea is to either gift the subscription and keep the free gift for yourself!
OR  just keep it all as a gift to yourself!!  You deserve it, right??
