With the return of the Julep skip feature, now called "I'm out this month" I've decided to give Julep a second, and final, chance so I'm resuming blogging about Julep for now and have reluctantly restored my Linkshare links with Julep. I'm not completely sure if this will be temporary, permanent or at the very least long-term until I see how it plays out at Julep. I'm very happy that Julep has finally restored the skip feature as many of us - both bloggers and non-bloggers - expressed concern last year when it was announced that Julep was getting rid of the ability to skip. Many people thought this would cause problems during the selection window with a rush of people wanting to cancel because they can't skip. Everyone and anyone who thought or even told Julep that ended up being right and Julep realized this so it's been returned.

I still have reservations about Julep's customer service though however with CS being freed up from the tide of cancellations maybe just maybe response time and treatment of customers will improve. *knocks on wood* One can only hope.

The December 2014 collection is called "The Countdown Collection"and if you expected shiny or glittery polishes for December then you're in luck because the colors do have a party feel to it.
Selection window opens November 20 and ends on the 24th. You must SKIP by the 24th in order to avoid being charged. Skipping is easier to do now, do not take the chance at being charged if you don't want the December box, you can cancel at a later time.
Once your trial period ends (after you’ve paid for your first monthly box), you’ll have the option to “pass” on your monthly box. If you log in to your account during the Monthly Maven Reveal (20th-24th of every month) and select "I'm out this month," you won’t receive or be billed for that month’s box. You can also feel free to call us at 877-651-3292. (Don’t forget—you can also "send to a friend" and share the gift of Julep beauty innovation.) - From Julep's FAQs page

I decided to use up all my remaining Julep points. Since November was also my 3rd anniversary with Julep I received an additional 500 Jules so I was able to score the Ultimate Collection plus the remaining two Orbital Shadows and the Silk Effect Top Coat.
