If you’re out doing some holiday shopping in the next few days, here’s one to put on your list. L’OCCITANE just put out the Holiday 2015 Advent Calendar ($49) and there’s so much interest in this that it’s only available in their stores now and not online! It contains minis of 24 of their best sellers – from body lotions to fragrances to lip balms and shower gels. So make sure call your local store before running over to pick one up!

Ok, I smell a trend here! Felt-tipped brow color is it and I’m so in. You may remember the review of this one recently and these latest one along the same line is from LANCOME. The Sourcils Tint Longwear Eyebrow Pen Ultra-Precise ($26 @ sephora.com) use a felt tip that actually adds color to the skin around the brow hairs. Think about it – isn’t that a better way to fill in brows? A typical pencil can skip, color the hair and skin or just look fake overall. These just add a dash of color where you need it and it’s buildable.
My bae just celebrated the big 4-0 recently and for one of her gifts, I wanted to do something special. Money is tight so unfortunately I had to be mindful of that. So instead of a shopping spree at Neiman’s, I gave her a shopping spree with CVS Beauty Club! I gifted her with a $50 gift card and she picked out some necessities and a few treats for herself. I also got her to sign up for CVS Beauty Club because of the great deals and ExtraBucks rewards I earn as a member, so she got an extra 10% off of her entire purchase.
Here’s what she got: Secret Deodorant, CVS/pharmacy Cocoa Butter Lotion (the big 10oz bottle), OGX Coconut Oil Hydrating Oil Mist, a large Sally Hansen nail file, and 3 L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip Glosses. The total came to less than $50 for all and she had a few dollars left over.
