A Gift For Me From Clinique at Herberger’s

blog-cliniqueEvery month, I go into Herberger’s to get my make-up re-stocked. I never seem to conveniently run out of  things at the same time, but it always seems like once a month I run out of at least one thing.

Sometimes when I get my make-up (I always get Clinique–it’s my favorite!) I get lucky and there is a bonus and free gift. Today when I went in, they had a bonus free 7-piece gift with any purchase of over $27 or more. I felt like it was my lucky day! I love the things in my gift set and I know they will make great addition to my make-up collection! This gift set is worth $70 and is a great deal.


Take Advantage of the Home Sale at Macy’s

blog-hoomeI love home goods. There are a number of places that I like to go when looking for furniture, bedding, lamps and lighting, decor, kitchen products, etc. Ikea, Home Goods, Macy’s, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s, Hobby Lobby, Pier 1 Imports, Gordman’s, and Target are among my favorites although I’ll check out just about anything with great products and an opportunity to save money!

Right now, Macy’s is having a pretty great home sale. They are offering 20%-50% off of certain items, including bed and bath, lighting, kitchen, floor care, dining, home decor, luggage and cleaning.

What do you think of the lights in the picture? I like those!

So Many Awesome Finds at Ulta

blog-ultaUlta is one of my favorite places to go for make-up, beauty supplies and tools, and hair products. They carry so many different brands including: Becca, Bare Minerals, Bed Head, Big Sexy Hair, Wella, John Frida, Mally, Ulta Brand, Smashbox, Benefit Cosmetics, Urban Decay, Tarte, NYX Cosmetics, Lorac, OPI, China Glaze, and so much more!

There are many great gift ideas here for women and men, and I usually start in their fragrance department during my search!

Save Big on Gifts with Groupon

blog-grouponI love  being able to save money whenever possible. I try to stick to a pretty tight budget and when you bring gifts into the picture. However, I don’t like to “skimp” and give cheap gifts, so when I can find high quality things at a discount, then it’s a win! This is why I love Groupon.

Groupon is a website that’s full of opportunities to save. They offer daily deals to a variety of things including restaurants, retailers, servie providers, and even adventures and getaways. This is a deal-of-the-day site in which you need an e-mail address (or facebook/twitter account) to sign up for. You can then choose your location and interests and the offers will appear for you to use. You can then purchase the gift certificates and give them as gifts, or even use them for yourself!
