Mo’s “A Little Late to the Game” holiday gift guide
Posted Dec 11 2009 11:50am
Begging Jen’s forgiveness, I’m posting a little late this week. Which is pretty much the way I’m doing everything this holiday season. Nobody else out there is late prepping for the holidays are they? I’m sure you all have everything collected and neatly wrapped, stashed in a closet or under the tree, all ready for giving, right? Well, there’s bound to be a few of you who are like me and haven’t even begun to SHOP yet, much less start the wrapping. For you I have some quick tidbits from the one place you can always shop, the internet!
First, you only have 2 days left to take advantage of the friends and family deal from tarte. 40% site wide AND a complimentary card case with purchases over $25? Um, heck yeah! Use code: FFDEC at checkout for this hot deal.
Fresh is offering free standard shipping on all orders through Dec 14th with the code HOLIDAY09. If you haven’t checked out their stuff yet you totally should. Who wouldn’t want a bar of Sugar Lychee soap in their stocking this year? Their selection isn’t limited to just soap either, with body and skin care products for any woman (or man) in your life.
Sephora has a whole section of nothing but value sets, including the much beloved Lash Stash. Or check out the Lancome Juicy Tubes set that gives you glosses for 8 of your favorite gal pals (or yourself!), for less than 40 bucks. There’s even a section of gifts that ship free, so you can “make up” for being a little late by having it shipped right to your loved ones door at no additional charge.
Skin Botanica has some really great stuff in their 2010 catalog, and even more on their site. The derma e products are very reasonably priced and I’ve been pleased with what I’ve tried from them so far. But what really caught my eye were the Eminence products right on the cover. How could I look at something called “Blueberry Soy Sugar Scrub” and not instantly deem it drool worthy?! Their selection of masques is equally enticing and you’re sure to find one perfectly suited for your bestie or favorite beauty blogger (Cranberry Pomegranate or Sugar Plum? Hmmm…)
Finally though, a quick personal note after the jump…
A couple of weeks ago I found a lump in my breast. It was a shocking and scary thing, but I was lucky and it turned out not to be a problem. I’m young, only 31, and women my age tend to avoid thinking about the possibility of cancer in any form striking our lives. I know you’ve heard this before and you’re inundated with the message full force every October, but let me say again: Please Please PLEASE be aware. Check yourself, know what’s normal for you, make sure you keep up with your annual women’s health appointment. The whole world spins in that first moment you find something out of the ordinary, but it could be so much worse if you aren’t paying attention. We love our readers, and we want you to be happy and healthy as long as possible!!!
