Happy Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

This is a special edition as we have Black Friday coming after
Thanksgiving, and then we have Cyber Monday which is on the 1st
of December(which is also this upcoming Monday).


Black Friday Deals
Are you shopping on Black Friday? Its the busiest day for most
retailers of all sorts, and most stores claim that the prices
and doorbusters you will find on sale that day(or even weekend)
are the lowest of the year. If you do a little research you
will find some extraordinary deals, but the best deals will
be scattered throughout the holiday season and throughout
the year, so rest assure that you don't always have to go
shopping on that day. So what are the best deals? I'll share
them with you right now! Remember to check your local ads for
even more sales.


The Limited-
Shop before 12:00 am and get a FREE SCARF/WRAP with every $50
you spend. Shop after 12:00 am and you get a FREE SCARF/WRAP
with every $75 purchase.

All day you will enjoy 30% Off your entire purchase, all pants
and jeans are 30% Off, select tops start at $19.50, handbags
and jewelry are 25% Off!

Old Navy-
This sale last Friday through Sunday. Sweaters and Knits are $15,
Graphic Print Tees are only $5.00, Denim 5 Pocket Jeans are 50%
off, Fleece Pants and Hoodies are $10 each!

PacSun-
30% Off everything until 1:00 pm. After 1:00 pm you can still save

JC Penney-
More great deals storewide, such as entire stocks of handbags 40 to

even more.


Cyber Monday Deals
For those of us who don't want to leave the comfort of our home,
Cyber Monday is a great idea! All the benefits of Black Friday
deals minus the heavy crowds of people. Unfortunately finding
Cyber Monday deals are a bit more elusive, as most deals are
not listed as "The Biggest Sale of the Year". You have to do
search and compare for these bargains.

To search for the great bargains keep an eye on your favorite
stores, emails, and websites like DealTaker.

If you have any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals you'd like to
share please respond! Happy shopping!

I love jeans(particularly low-rise styles), but I am not too
keen on belts though. Why is that? I do like some belts but I
just find that most belts are a bit bulky and restrictive. So
what do I do when I wear a pair of pants that don't seem to
fit as well as they should, like when they have the tendency
to keep falling? I wear the revolutionary IsABelt.

It is thin clear piece of plastic that fastens over your pants
like a belt, yet it looks and feels as if you were not wearing
a belt. Its real fashion freedom! Its almost as if you're not
wearing a belt and it can be worn with any color! You can bend
and crouch over freely without any embarrassment. You will no
longer have to pull up your pants or worry about exposing your
derriere. This is truly amazing and no fashionista should be
without one!

Select your size from small(which adjusts to size 6), medium
(adjusts to size 10), large(adjusts to size 14) or plus(which
adjusts up to 50 inches).

They come in four sizes for women(including plus sizes), and
even sizes for children and men!

You can buy IsABelt at fine boutiques or even IsABelt.com for
$16.95(plus size cost $17.95).

For the list of boutiques that includes the United States and United Kingdom.

November's Must Haves

Bright Stylish Athletic Shoes
It does not matter whether you actually work out when you
wear these, you will need to wear these while you tackle
your Christmas shopping. Can you really imagine wearing
high heels while walking up and down the mall? Plus a
really cute pair will brighten up your day even if the
sky is overcast.

Airwalk Canvas Kicks
available at Payless ShoeSource for $22.99



Adidas Women's Midiru Trainers available at Koodos.com for £29.99

a large plush robe.

Lip Plumping Lipgloss
With the holidays coming we need to find ways to simplify our
beauty routines. Instead of using lipstick and lip liner to
enhance your natural pout, why not just wear lip pumping lip
gloss? It looks and it feels much more natural than layers of
lipstick.

Winter Fragrance
Like everything else we rotate for winter(clothes, shoes and even

even musk.

Bobbi Goes For Glitter


Bobbi Brown always has the most innovative makeup in the
most pretty of colors. I love everything in her lines of
cosmetics, skincare and even fragrance. Right now I am
all about Glitter Lip Balm, which is actually part of
the Copper Diamond look of the holidays 2008.


Glitter Lip Balm
Yes it appears that I have an affinity for limited
edition cosmetics(yes sadly this is limited edition).
This is a lot like their regular lip balm but it also
contains glitter and pearl pigments that gives you a
sexy pout just in time for your holidays. Comes with
a mirrored compact and will be just the thing for a
stocking stuffer!



They come in three glam all new shades:Pink Crystal
which is a warm pink, Crystal Diamond which is more
like a baby pink, and Copper Diamond which is like
a warm copper shade.


Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Balm is available at Bobbi Brown for $19.00

Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Balm is available at Bobbi Brown for £13.00

According to the LA Times, nails will get a new edge with
the hottest new color gray! You can read more about it
here.


Some of you may think gray nails are little too weird or
maybe even a little too juvenile, but I think it might be
just the nail color for the upcoming holiday parties(more
about holiday party style later). Here are some of my
choice picks for gray nail polishes and lacquers

Tell me what you think!


OPI Sheer Your Toys is a pale version of this gray
day trend. I would pick this color for anyone who is
either a little wary of this current trend or even
older women who want to remain more sophisticated.
available at Brighton Beauty Supply for $5.95
available at Beauty Expert for £9.75.


Rescue Beauty Lounge Concrete Jungle is the rock star
of these shades. Its a classic gray that will surpass all
other gray nail colors.
available at Rescue Beauty Lounge for $18

Here is something new and very wonderful from Estee Lauder, the
new Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang. Its a very intriguing
and feminine oriental fragrance with graceful notes of Vanilla,
warm wintery notes of Sandalwood, and of course Amber as the
three base notes. The middle notes are a little more intense
with sensual Cinnamon, deep Insence, and the delicate Rose
of Bulgaria. The top notes add a little something extra
with Ylang Absolute, Geranium Oil, and Italian Bergomot.

All in all, this is a warm yet delicate fragrance that is
perfect for winter.

Ebay For Real Deals




I am so into designer clothes, but I am so not into the prices.
So where do I go for a great deal on designer pieces and
accessories? Ebay! Sure I like Yoox, Bluefly and Net A
Porter but a real deal is to be found at Ebay!


While Ebay is mostly known as a auction site, in which you bid
along with other people for a certain item, you also have the
option to Buy It Now which is the real deal. You just have to
learn how to navigate it for deals.





For instance, I found two great must haves at great prices, a
Juicy Couture Tracksuit and a Dooney & Bourke Clutch, both of
which are new and under $50!

1-Once you're on the Ebay site, start searching. You
can choose between Search or Advanced Search, I recommend
the Advanced Search simply because you can select
settings to the filter, thus making the search
much quicker.

2-If you've got something in mind type it in the box. For
better results select Exact Words, Exact Order. Select
the Category and Buy It Now. If there's anything else
you want or need, select those options too. Then
click Search.

3-Once you've clicked Search a window should pop up and
check the location your searching. Make adjustments
according to how far you think it should be shipped.

4-Once you reach to the pages, search from Low to High.
When you look in the first two pages you should find a
deal.

5-Remember that if you don't find what you are looking
for, keep checking every so often as items and prices
tend to change.

Michael Kors Very Pretty
Don't be fooled by the name Very Pretty, this lovely new
fragrance is more bold, sensusal, and even sexy rather than
just pretty. This fragrance is filled with romantic floral
notes of Jasmine, Sandalwood, Bergamot, Incense, Tuberose,
Blue Orris, Arum Lilies, Musk, Vetiver Haiti, Freesia,
and Peony. This smells warm and fragrant, and even a
little spicy.

I also love the glam bottle that is decorated with elegant
Swarovski crystals.


Michael Kors Very Pretty is available at Macy's for $75


Bvlgari Jasmin Noir
If MK Very Pretty is seductive enough for you, then you've got
to smell and try Bvlgari Jasmin Noir. This would have to be the
Lexus of sexy fragrances. This is more than just another floral
Jasmine perfume.

Infused with notes of Sambac Jasmine Absolute, Almond, Tonka
Bean Absolute, Green Sap, Precious Wood, Licorice,and
Gardenia, this perfume goes above and beyond your
average woodsy floral.


Bvlgari Jasmin Noir is available at Neiman Marcus for $140.

Brow-A-Licious

Don't be brow beaten, get your brows done right! Perfectly
groomed brows are a skill than anyone can master. And you
don't need a pro to shape them(if you don't want or can't
afford, but if do, thats cool too). But in order to do
that you'll need the right tools and/or products.

Right now I am all about Maybelline's new Define-A-Brow
line which includes Define-A-Brow Eyebrow pencil and
Define-A-Brow Gel. Click on photos for better view.



Define-A-Brow Eyebrow pencil is a thin and easy to
use pencil and its also perfect for begginers as its less
intimidating. But even you professionals will love it too.
It comes in six colors that will match your natural brow
color. Its also waterproof and safe for sensitve eyes-
which in my case is a good thing! It also comes with
a miniature brow comb for better grooming.



Define-A-Brow Gel is a clear gel that works for
anyone's hair color. It easily shapes your brows to
a natural shape. And its also safe for sensitive
eyes.

Eyebrow Pencil is available at Walgreens for $6.49
Eyebrow Gel is available at Walgreens for $5.79.
