Have you got a single beauty product that you never want to leave home without? Yeah, that is how I feel about Julep's Bare Face Cleansing Oil. Using Bare Face Cleansing Oil with Julep's Konjac facial sponge is a key part of my nightly beauty routine, and the products always leave my skin feeling fresh - never oily! The cleanser is strong enough to remove my daughter's stage make up with ease but it is gentle enough to use every night. Plus, it contains ingredients I can feel good about using on our skin.
Julep is offering this fan favorite skincare product as part of their limited-edition Korean Skincare Welcome Box offer free for new Maven subscribers.

I'm sure you have seen photos of beautiful nail art everywhere and a lot of them look difficult. Many nail art designs are actually very simple and with a little experimentation, you can create new designs of your own. Our friends at Julep have a fresh new nail art tutorial that shows just how easy it is to give yourself a bright and fun mani using three of your favorite colors.
 

1. Apply one coat of pink polish and let dry completely.
2. Use Striping Brush to apply lemon-lime at an angle on lower portion of your nail. Let dry completely.
3. Use Striping Brush to apply purple on the tip of nail. Apply a top coat and you are done!
Wasn't that easy?
If you join Julep Maven now, you get all three of these bright and beautiful summer shades (Sam, Polly and Denise), two buffer blocks and two nail art tools perfect for creating your favorite nail designs as your free welcome gift.

If 95% of schools at home suddenly closed, would it be considered a crisis?  I think you'd agree reopening the schools is urgent, right?

You may think everyone would - but only 1% of humanitarian aid goes to education in emergency situations like natural disasters or conflicts and their aftermath.

And this means that over 28 million children are left without an education in places affected by disaster and conflict-afflicted areas, such as Nepal (where 95% of the schools were damaged in the earthquake) or for Syrian refugee children - many of whom have been out of school for 4 years, and face being refugees for an average of 17 years.

However - with your support, this might change on Tuesday, when the Norwegian Government will ask world leaders to back a new Global Humanitarian Fund & Platform for Education in Emergencies in a special meeting in Oslo.  

Will you join me by signing the #UpForSchool Petition before Tuesday's meeting and make sure the world doesn't forget these children? 

There's never been a more important time.   I've already signed - in fact, nearly 7 million of us already have

These leaders have the power to change the lives of children who’ve already survived some of the toughest childhoods imaginable. Now is the time to make sure they're not forgotten. 
Stand #UpForSchool and sign the petition today.

It's no surprise that when a crisis occurs, children are the most vulnerable. But education doesn't just equip children for the future -- it protects them in the present.  You can help protect them.
 
Thank you,

Title: The Seven Natural Wonders of the Earth
Author: Anna Othitis

Book Review:
Books that take you to other parts of the world are always interesting to read, especially with the little ones.

In this book, by Anna Othitis, the reader takes a trip on the Angelic Airlines with Captain Frankie. As the reader travels to each location they are taught a few facts and are ask questions to engage them in the reading.

There are photos of the actual locations so the reader can see what the location really looks like, opposed to an illustration of some kind.

I really enjoyed reading the book and will be reading it a second time with my nephew. This book will be something that he will enjoy reading.


 Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
