Ohmigosh!! So I open my front door, and to my complete surprise, a lovely back and white Sephora box is just sitting there outside, like a mirage in the desert. But, I say to myself, I haven't placed a Sephora order, what could this be? I look at the label, and lo and behold, it is addressed to my husband! Now, before you jump to any crazy conclusions - ha ha - my birthday is coming up, and my wonderful hubby got me something from Sephora!! Does he know me well, or what? Well, I guess that will be determined when I get to open the box, which, unfortunately will not be until May 20th...blurg! (as Liz Lemon on 30 Rock would exclaim) - torture to have to wait sooooooo long to find out what is in the Sephora box!!! I hope it is the new Sephora book. I want to order it right now, but now that I have this mystery Sephora box, I don't want to jinx my self and end up with two copies. He did say he got free shipping, so that means he at least spent $50 (Sephora has been running a free shipping offer with $50 purchase, but they always ship free with a $75 purchase) so there has to be something else in there (and maybe a few free samples thrown in? Not sure if they come with the $50 free shipping or just the $75). I'm sure y'all are very curious as to what's in the box, and I will be sure to let you know... in 22 loooong days!

DOVE Giveaway!!!

On May 1st, I wrote about the new DOVE Ultimately Visibly Smooth Wild Rose Anti-Perspiring/Deodorant (click here to read). Well, it's been almost 8 weeks since I started using it, and I'm happy to say that overall I'm really pleased with this new deodorant. It has made the hair softer and, surprisingly, I did notice that my underarms do look better and smoother. I've always had issues with that, because as someone who is pale but has dark hair, even when freshly shaven my underarms still didn't look quite hair-free (this was particularly angst-inspiring during my teenage years). But the other day I noticed my underarms looked really good and didn't have the pit-version of the five o'clock shadow going on. Yay!
DOVE wanted to give you the chance to try this new product (if you haven't already!) and is going to give 2 lucky readers a full-size DOVE Ultimately Smooth Wild-Rose Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, along with coupons for $2 off future purchases of Ulti…

Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale

It's not just bras and panties that are marked down. Check it - makeup and other beauty products on sale for 75% off!! That is one secret I cannot keep! I wasn't planning on stopping in, but had to stop at the mall today to shop for a Father's Day gift for my hubby from our 4 year-old (another gift, actually, to go with the Elmo t-shirt we got for him last week. So cute!). But then I saw the sign for the Semi-Annual Sale and it said makeup on it, so into the store I went. I could have bought more, but I had a hungry child with me, though she did enjoy looking at all the pretty colors of body lotion and shower gels, so that kept her occupied,oh, for about 5 minutes. Anyway, I managed to score 4 products for $12.50. Sweet. And that included 2 - that's right - 2 full-size Very Sexy lipsticks. Uh huh. I also bought Bare Bronze Self Tanning Body Spray with Buriti Oil and an Everything Refresher Spray. The Bare Bronze was the splurge at $4.50. I am digging the Bare Bronze b…
