Last month, I got the chance to try the subscription box of Julep for free but I paid $3.99 for shipping. The free box code was offered by swagbucks and I did not mind paying the shipping. I got the box, tried their nail polish and thought, they are great selection but not really worth the money you pay for if you will subscribe monthly in it. Since I used a free code, I thought I won't be automatically subscribed which was a BIG mistake! I should have took note of the dates when you can cancel the subscription (I think it is on the 24 and 25th of the month). I forgot to do that and I was so surprised to see my card get charged for the next shipment, I went, what????
I went to the website and could not find the link for cancellation. I contacted them via email and said that since the box hasn't shipped yet, if it's possible to cancel it for me and also cancel the charge on my card. The representative said that they have cancelled the subscription but I still have to pay and will receive the box for March. I emailed again and ask if I can just do a review of the box but the reply was the same as the first time they responded to me so I just paid the dang thing. The picture above was the box I received for March and paid for $24.99. If it's not for my stupid mistake, I will never pay that much for two nail polishes, an eye pencil, and two smarties, Really, smarties for a beauty box? Oh well, no one to blame but the stupid me for forgetting things like this. This is why I don't like free trials and all that kind of stuff because I always ended up forgetting about it. Lesson learned!
On the brighter side, this week has been better, weather-wise. The weather is still cold and freezing on some days but it gave me time to do my walking outdoors after dropping off my kids to school. I miss outdoors!
Yesterday was foggy but I went anyway. It was a special treat for me as I hear the birds chirping. Sounds like they were celebrating the coming of Spring. I don't blame them, I am so ready for Winter to be over. Being stuck at home is not doing good for my fitness goal. I get lazy at times and just want to wrap the warm blanket in my body all the time.
Today was freezing but went for a walk on a 28 degrees weather, it's crazy cold! Although I have my gloves on, my walk only lasted for 15 minutes because my hands were painful. I ran for about 3 minutes but stop because the it felt like my lungs was ready to collapse lol. I can't complain though, the sunshine was beautiful and although there were some icy patch on the side walks and frost on the grass, the wind was not blowing this morning. I am looking forward to 50 degree weather next week, it would be great!
