where did november go?

November 29, 2010

seriously, if anyone can tell me, i’d be *thrilled* to hear your answers! because i have no idea! 9 days until my first final! EEEEEEEEEK!!!!!!!

but the bright side is:

today is cyber monday!!!!!!!

personally, i’m extremely excited for it to hit 1 pm since urban decay seems to be putting their 15 year anniversary liner set on pre-sale today!

can you say, MUST HAVE?! and it looks from the photo there are some new or maybe exclusive liners in there! that’s all the news i’ve got for now folks, but i can’t wait for it!

stila is offering their warehouse sale ONLINE this year! be sure to check this one out addicts, there are some *amazing* deals over there – lip glazes for $5-6? YES PLEASE!

and one of my absolute VERY favorites, lime crime, created by my deere friend, doe, is having their biggest sale EVER with 40% off! check out the candy eye primer, i hear its divine 😉 i’ve featured lots of looks with her products, her colors are unique and pack a major punch!

and on a non-beauty related note, henri bendel is having a cyber monday sale! 30% off sitewide and free shipping!!!!

i am a total bendel girl and i would highly recommend their handbags – amazing quality and so cute! i definitely picked up a couple for myself 😉


for a full list of deals, check out karen & christine‘s blogs – they’re better on keeping up with everything than me 🙂

i hope that y’all had a wonderful thanksgiving spending times with friends, family and delicious holiday treats!

my family came to my house, which was nice, but a bit chaotic. i missed spending time in alabama 😦

…although i think hero was happy to have some other people around!

i caught her in bed with my brother!

happy cyber monday!



shu shu…i love you

sad news in the world for us americans today…

shu uemura is pulling out from the US market.

i know, i know…my first thoughts were “OMFG i’m going to need to stock up on lash curlers and cleansing oils!” and believe you me that is exactly what i am going to do!

reportedly, shu garners about 80% of their profits from the asian markets alone, so it seems reasonable to leave the US market, especially with the whole economic downturn thing…but i know die hard addicts here are going to feel very alone without easy access to their shu essentials!

word is that shu uemura products will still be available via their website to us “yanks” – phew!

but, seriously, who can forget j.lo’s shu mink lashes from the 2001 oscars? i was only 14 at the time and i remember them like yesterday!

now i wonder what’s going to happen to the endless japanese beauty stores that vibrantly pepper los angeles advertising their shu uemura exclusivity?

oh well, i guess it gives me and doe an even better excuse to make our dream trip to japan come true!
