Score Big this Season with #SamsClub

This is a sponsored post by Oral-B and Gillette at Sam’s Club. All words are my own.

Now that we are in the thick of holiday shopping season, where do you find yourself doing most of your shopping? Are you loyal to one place or do you bounce around depending on what you need? I shop a little during the year but the majority of it is done just after Thanksgiving. I like to plan my purchases and get just the right thing for each person on my list so I know they'll use it. If there's any advice I can give when it comes to getting the most out of gift giving this year, I'd say make a list so you don't overspend. This alone helps me stay on budget.

What I'm Loving Right ... Now!

LORAC Lip Luxe 8 Hour Lip Color
in Orchid ($16 @ – this color is so right now! It’s not the typical red I tend to gravitate towards and wow, does it last a long time on my lips. And it’s infused with good stuff like Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed and vitamins C & E, so glad to have this on my lips for hours.

ESCADA Born in Paradise EDT ($45/1oz, $45/1.6oz, $75/3.3oz @ – I think half the country has been praying for spring and this new scent from Escada just brings my nose to it full throttle! The notes are sweet and springy – green apple, guava, watermelon, pineapple, coconut milk, jasmine tea, all on a base of sandalwood, cedarwood and musk.

SUN BUM Continuous Spray Sunscreen ($15.99/6oz @ and – every season it’s a good idea to update your sunscreen and this season I’m trusting the Bum!  Available in SPF 15, SPF 30, SPF 50 and SPF 70, I think one of these will have you cover (no pun intended) and since the continuous spray is widely available, is there any other way to go?

DOLCE & GABBANA The Brow Liner - Shaping Eyebrow Pencil ($45 @ – when I first saw under the cap, it instantly reminded me of this one with its teardrop shape. Though I’m a fan of a harder formula like this one, I wouldn’t say this one is soft by any means, and, dare I say, I think that it lasts longer on my brows than my Holy Grail one. Yikes! Available in 4 shades,

GILLETTE Venus Snap Razor ($12.99 @ – yup it’s cute (so tiny and colorful), yup it’s compact (fits in the palm of your hand), and yup it has 5 blades. Weren’t we up to 4 last check? So now here’s 5! And it’s surprisingly easy to wield in the shower and the handy blue case makes it a travel no brainer.

A Closer Shave from the New Gilette

Gillette-Venus-Embrace If there’s one area of beauty where technology can be seen at its finest, it’s that of the razor. Used to be that a razor was just a razor but not anymore. They have more blades than ever and now we’re getting in to those that have extra gadgets on it. Take the new Venus Embrace ($9.99-$11.99/ShowerPod, $13.49-$14.99/four-pack of cartidges @ from GILLETTE. It has 5 blades, count ‘em, 5 blades to remove hair. Soon we’ll be up to 10, right? And on either side of the blades is a Protective Ribbon of Moisture, they call it, and have this phrase trademarked, that protects against nicks and cuts.


So if you have a shaky hand when it comes to hair removal, this would be a good one to try.
