My dear bargain hunters, as I mentioned last week I began a real estate course. I really love the course and I’m very interested in the material. I’m excited about my new career! But transitioning is a little bit of a challenge – this week I have a full time class every day, so I might not be able to get you as many great bargains as usual. I do promise, however, the continuing sad, happy and true story of an inspiring real estate agent!
Every once in a while I like to stroll over to HSN and check out their clearance section. You never know what you’ll find like this Deborah Lippmann Three Times a Lady 3-piece Nail Lacquer Set. These sets are so much fun and make great gifts (Valentine’s Day?) because of the nice packaging. Reg $42, today only $18!
I’m also checking out this Boyfriend® by Kate Walsh .5 fl. oz. Perfume Spray. Kate Walsh has that something about her doesn’t she? I tested this once and it is great – and HSN has it at a great price reg $89.95 today only $39.95!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
Through December 19th, Alba Botanica is celebrating the holidays by taking 25% off their top 10 selling products (code: HOLIDAY25). If you are in to natural beauty items, Alba is a favorite of many people. Their Natural Very Emollient Body Lotion Maximum is on the top 10 list – regularly $12 with 25% off! This lotion has alpha hydroxy acids in it which isn’t talked about very often anymore, but is the common ingredient in those lotions that I find most effective.
If you are a little addicted to lip balm like I am, it’s a good idea to find the purest balm you can. (I can’t imagine how much lip balm I end up consuming!) Another great product on the top ten list is this Natural Hawaiian Lip Balm Nourishing Coconut Cream. 100% vegetarian and no yucky chemicals and it is only $2.99 with 25% off!
There are positives to being a very empathetic person like myself. For example, I make a great friend to talk to because I can really put myself in your shoes. It also makes me very forgiving since I can (usually) understand why people do the things they do. However, there are several downsides, and one of them is that when a tragedy like what happened in Newtown, Connecticut happens, I cannot stop thinking about it or feeling for those families. My husband is what one might call an “avoider”. It’s not that he doesn’t have feelings about it (in fact, I saw his eyes fill up with tears several times) but that he can choose not to think about it, so he doesn’t walk around like me every day. For the past several days that my children have been in school, I’ve had moments of panic, where I want to get in the car and go pick them up. It is irrational and I know that, but I have gone so far as to get in my car and pull out of the driveway. What stops me is the thought that if I take them out today, what am I going to do tomorrow? I only have a few days to go until Christmas break, which is very comforting. Meanwhile, I’ve taken to dedicating my runs to each of the victims. Yesterday I ran for this little cutie-patootie Olivia Engel. She is just one of the cutest little angels I have ever seen.
Count your blessings today, bargain hunters!
Tarte Cosmetics has a great promotion today – get free two day shipping on orders, plus get a free Pure Maracuja Oil Roller Ball (code: PUREGIFT). I am a huge fan of Tarte. Their lip tints are the greatest lip product on the planet. If you haven’t tried one, you definitely should. But what is exciting on the site today is their latest cheek stain – the perfect pink holiday exclusive cheek stain. $28, it ships free with a great free gift – and completely worth it!
They also have a great limited edition kit – the stand outs limited-edition best-sellers kit. This is a great deal for only $25! (Don’t forget it ships free and you get a free gift.)
Christmas is a week from today. Where does the time go? My children are starting to get very excited for the big day. I managed to get everything done except for my cards which I have to get out soon. Then I need to concentrate on Christmas Eve when I have my husband’s entire family over. It’s chaotic, but my little ones will grow up with great Christmas Eve memories. Have a great Tuesday, bargain hunters!
What a great sale going on at The Body Shop today – 50% off everything on the site! Also, orders over $50 ship free. They have some great gifts here – especially those hard to find gifts for teachers, teen friends, and more. This Strawberry Mini Shower & Moisture Set would make a cute gift and is on sale today, 2 for $12 or 4 for $20! Pick up a treat for yourself while you are at it. Enjoy!
