Back To School Finds For Those Not Going Back To School – Thanks ShopAtHome.com

‘Tis the back to school season, y’all! I’m trying to navigate my way around this time of year because although Elle isn’t quite yet 3, in a few years, I’ll be joining the rush of parents who are tackling e-sites and stores to get the best deals. I was totally oblivious to all of this before I was a parent, but now it’s like a secret club that I’ve been drug into. I’m not doing much shopping for Elle, but I do like to keep an eye out on spectacular deals for my younger relatives and friends with littles. I like being a part of a village and help where I can. I’ve partnered up with ShopAtHome.com to share with you some of the pretty sweet offerings that Sears has around this time.

I’ve talked about ShopAtHome.com before and while they’ve got thousands of coupons for many retailers, Sears is really giving the love because right now they have over 30 coupons available AND 8% cashback.

Not only are you able to rack in on the savings from purchases, but you will also get an additional 8% off! Nice, right?

Happy Prime Day!

Amazon Prime

Today’s the day, babes! I don’t even know why I’m so excited about this. I’m not even THAT much of an online shopper. Amazon and I have a close relationship, though. And then Amazon Prime came alone and swept me off my feet. FREE 2-day shipping? Okay, who wouldn’t like that? I’ve even gotten packages on a Sunday. During the holiday season. In the middle of blizzard.

Okay, I’m jiving. There aren’t any blizzards in Florida, but still…Amazon Prime is so so impressive. Today is their version of Black Friday except it’s exclusive to Amazon Prime members ONLY! And if you’re all like “Oh naw, girl. I’m not spending $99 a year on Prime…”  they are giving you a free trial so that you test the waters before you jump in. How you’ll hate all of the benefits is beyond me, but hey…I’m not judging. If you do decide to do some shopping today, I’d love to see what you scooped up.

I’ve got some recommendations in the Clumps Trunk, of course but I’d love to see what you have your eyes on. My wishlist is below and I’m hoping that at least some of these items will go on sale before the end of the day!

Insane MAC Cosmetics Discount!

MAC Cosmetics

Girl. I can’t tell you the last time I walked into a MAC Cosmetics store. I mean, shoot…I haven’t even been to the website in a little over a year. My obsession with the brand fizzled out when I discovered other brands. You know, because for a while I only had eyes for MAC.

But lemme tell you something…they’ve been doing some things to their website since I last visited  and whooooa! Not only does it look good but it has inspired me to do some shopping. Maybe. I mean, we’ll see. A good little discount code is definitely making shopping a lot more appealing. Check this out.

If you use the code MACFAN1, you will get $10 off when you spend $50 or more. 

I haven’t seen a promo like that from them um…ever. So hey, get in while the getting is good, babes. This expires on June 22, 2015 and I don’t believe those with PRO discounts are able to use that code. 

Now riddle me this…what should I get? No, really. Some foundation, maybe? A pretty lippy? Tell me!

Shopbop Friend & Family Sale

SHOPBOP Friends and Family event

Another month and another fierce Shopbop sale is gracing our wallets and probably making them moan in agony.

Whatever, though.

A sale means you’re actually save money so it’s not all a lost cause. Time to start racking up those summer goodies, babes! I’m thinking sandals, beach scarves and totes, luggage for travel and pretty much anything your little heart desires. I haven’t really started scouring the site yet for anything but I know that I’m going to want to snag something nice for my Mom for Mother’s Day. She’s a Michael Kors lover so maybe she’ll love this?

Oh! And I actually kinda need a Spring wallet and this baby has my name written all over it.

ShopBop coupon

Keep an eye on your calendars! The sale won’t last long. It started yesterday, April 7th and will end Friday, April 10th at 4AM EST. Not a lot of shopping time and you can gurantee that they’ll run out of many of the hot items so better hop to it with the quickness. 

Happy shopping!

The Big Event at ShopBop sale

SHOPBOP Sale

It’s a Shopbop sale! Ooooh, Shopbop. Why must you do this to me? Why must you torture me with deals and sales and plentiful lemmings when my bank account…ain’t so plentiful? Simply put, Shopbop’s March event will likely do the same thing to you as you look for sweet items to buy with the transition from Winter to Spring.

A QVC exclusive – tarte’s What Has Your Makeup Done For You Lately?

Ohmigoodness, ohmigoodness! I know I’m supposed to be on a pseudo-hiatus but I had to break away from the sofa and Benson and Stabler to preach about the awesomeness that is this tarte on QVC deal. Good ole’ QVC has had me lusting over jewelry, kitchen gadgets and curtains for years and oh yeah, they feature a slew of my favorite beauty brands. Including the illustrious tarte, of course.

This isn’t tarte’s first time debuting fabulousness on QVC. Their maracuja oil has made several appearances. This set, however, has got to be hands down my favorite of the bunch. You get SO much and it’s all under $50. Which is a big deal considering tarte’s prices can be on the pricey (albeit worthy) side.

Check this out, mamas…

For one day and one day only (that’s THIS Friday, July 13th), you can snag the tarte What Has Your Makeup Done For You Lately? collection. What’s included?

  • LipSurgence Lip Shine in Smitten (new product!)
  • Pure Maracuja Oil Rollerball (new product!)
  • Retoucher Flawless Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (new product!)
  • Maracuja Miracle 12-hr foundation w/  SPF 15 (new product!)
  • ModernEYES Waterproof Creaseless Shadow in Plum Brown (Liner in PlumBerry)  (new product!)
  • Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara in black

I was glad that I was able to get my hands on this collection so that I could do a quick review of the new products to give you an idea of what to expect if you want to scoop it up.

LipSurgence Lip Shine in Smitten

This shade is a bit on the bright rose-y side and I’m not sure it compliments my warm hue very well but man, I love the consistency and how it feels on the lips. I’ve reviewed le LipSurgence lippies before but I think I like this one better because it’s sans glitter. There’s also a built-in sharpener which is perfect for toting around!

Pure Maracuja Oil Rollerball

So excited to see the epic Maracjua oil in a travel-friendly rollerball. I adore everything about this oil. I find it perfect for using on the hair, skin, nails, body….everywhere! It’s a fragrance-free oil that sinks into skin but doesn’t leave an oily residue the way other oils can. I reviewed it here and I am still regularly using it.

Retoucher Flawless Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

This brush – ohmiwords – this brush is incredibly soft. It’s definitely softer than what I expected it to be and I find it perfect for applying blushes to the cheeks. Yah, I know it’s a foundation brush but I find that I get much better use out of brushes like these when I use them for blushes, bronzers and highlighters. The rounded head makes for easy movement. Plus I really love the design on the handle.

Maracuja Miracle 12-hr foundation w/  SPF 15

Oooooh, foundation! And there’s a brown-girl friendly shade too. Unfortunately, I found this “Deep” to be too light for me which broke my heart a bit as it is the darkest of the 5 shades. tarte has never been one to have a ton of brown-girl friendly shades when it comes to their foundations. I knew that when I spied this foundation and so I didn’t get my hopes up too high. Ah well. Consistency-wise, it feels nice air-y and I love that there’s SPF built-in. The shades are as follows: Fair, Light, Medium, Tan and Deep.

ModernEYES Waterproof Creaseless shadow/liner

It’s been a while since I’ve played with a tarte liner, but when they say creaseless, honey, they mean creaseless. This 2-in-1 product totes the shadow on one side and the liner on the other. Both are nice shades that will work for daytime and nighttime looks. Both are great at lasting on and around the lid area for hours at a time. However, if you’re like me and have oily lids, you’ll probably have to wear a primer when  wearing the shadow. No biggie.

Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara

Won’t say much about this because I’ve got an entire review on it here. This is hands down my FAVORITE tarte mascara. It volumizes and lasts longer than most natural mascaras.

Overall, for $49.98 I say you’re getting a darn good deal. Even if the foundation shade happens to be off a bit, the mascara, brush, maracuja oil and lippie impress me enough to consider this a steal. You will only be able to get this on Friday, July 13th on QVC and QVC.com.

Whatcha think? Think you’ll be grabbing? Somehow I think Janet Jackson will approve this collection. Haha, get it? Someone….anyone?
