Reminder: We Are Accepting Recommendations for our Holiday Gift Guide!

Looking for Gift Guide Suggestions

This is just a quick reminder that we are still accepting recommendations for our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide!

I’d love to hear from you if you own a business that sells something awesome or know somebody who does, or if you’ve discovered something this past year that you think everyone should know about. No recommendation is too big or too small. (OK, a yacht is probably too big.) We share 200+ gifts each year for women, men, and children so the more recommendations the better!

Please feel free to send me an email at or leave a comment on this post.

I’ve got to tell you: We’ve got some awesome recommendations so far this year and I can’t wait to share this year’s guide with you on November 2!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Kiyonna Bellini in Blushing Pink

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will spend the month of October last year highlighting some of the stores that are running special promotions to raise funds for breast cancer and other cancer-specific charities. With the purchase of any of the items we highlight over the course of this month a portion of the proceeds will be donated to various breast cancer charities.

Kiyonna Bohemian Crochet Bellini in Blushing Pink

Kiyonna, the fab plus size store that’s the maker of my favorite dress ever (that I rented from Gwynnie Bee) has designed this lovely Bohemian Crochet Bellini in Blushing Pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The bellini is available in sizes 0X (10-12) – 5X (30-32) and costs $68.

Kiyonna is donating 50% of retail sales of the Bohemian Crochet Bellini in Blushing Pink to Breast Cancer Angels, which is an organization that aims to provide emotional and financial assistance to women and their families as they are going through breast cancer treatments.

Be sure to check out more Breast Cancer Awareness Month offers, most of which are only good during the month of October.

Today Only: Groupon Cyber Monday Preview Sale

I’m sure you’re all sitting at home or at work right now daydreaming about the upcoming Cyber Monday deals, right? Ha!

Well, whether you are or not, if you want to get a head start on your holiday shopping you might want to check out Groupon today because there’s a Groupon Cyber Monday Preview Sale, where select goods are marked down up to 80%!

I’m always a bit skeptical of sales like this but there are actually some pretty good deals available.

Dyson DC56 Handheld Vacuum

With two dogs and a baby, there is nothing I want more than a Dyson vacuum. (My how my wants have changed over the past year!) While I probably wouldn’t purchase a refurbished vacuum as a gift for someone else, I just might have to treat myself to this Refurbished Dyson DC56 Handheld Vacuum, which is on sale for $89.99 (originally $299.99).

LEVO Bed Table with Rechargeable Power Bank for Tablets, Smartphones, and Laptops

I might need to send this LEVO Bed Table with Rechargeable Power Bank for Tablets, Smartphones, and Laptops to my husband to let him know that I NEED it. I do most of my work in bed after my son has gone to sleep for the night, so this would be perfect. Normally $110, Groupon has it on sale for $59.99.

Marvel Comics Mystery Box

Here’s a fun gift idea for the comic book lover: a Marvel Comics Mystery Box! This box costs $34.99 and has a $175 value. Each box will come stuffed with one pint glass, one t-shirt, and 25 mystery comics!

Ends Today: Urban Decay Friends and Fanatics Sale

Urban Decay Friends and Fanatics Sale

Last week I shared a bunch of Columbus Day Sales, many of which go through today, but I somehow missed the Urban Decay Friends and Fanatics Sale, which ends today!

If you’ve been eyeing any of Urban Decay’s amazing palettes, this is definitely the time to shop for them because you can get 20% off your Urban Decay purchase!

Urban Decay Coupon: Use code “TAKEITOFF” at checkout to take 20% off your entire Urban Decay purchase. This coupon expires at the end of the day today, October 12, 2015. You’ll also receive free shipping on any $35+ purchase.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky

On my personal wish list is the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. My preferred eye style is a smoky eye and this is one of the few palettes where I could see myself actually using all of the colors. Normally $54, it’s $43.20 after the discount is applied.

If you’re looking for Urban Decay recommendations, I reviewed Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and the Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette and recommend them both!
