Despite my promise to update y’all each day on the latest deal for ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty promotion, I have, of course, failed. But I promise to try harder from here on out!
Today’s beauty deal is for a product I haven’t heard of before, Mally Beauty Face Defender. Normally $40, you can grab this product for $25 today both in-stores and online.
Mally’s Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is the perfect finishing touch for your makeup. This remarkable technology yields an utterly sheer, featherweight product that diffuses the look of pores, minimizes fine lines, and helps protect your makeup so it lasts from morning to night. Face Defender gives you that flawless matte finish without the dry, ashy look of powder. The result is silky smooth skin and longer-lasting makeup. It comes with a unique buffed-edge Japanese sponge.
In addition to the daily deals that are valid for one day only, there are quite a few specials that are valid the entire length of the promotion. Click here to check out the full ULTA 21 Days of Beauty schedule.
If you’re shopping online and want to save even more, be sure to shop through ShopatHome.com because you’ll be able to get an extra 3% cash back on your ULTA order!
Last week I made a split-second decision to purchase an Amazon Fire TV ($99) because after watching season 3 of New Girl I NEEDED to watch seasons 1 and 2 of The Mindy Project. One of the only ways to do so was via Amazon Instant Video, so I figured it was time to get the Amazon Fire TV so I could at least pretend to do work while binge watching TV.
You may recall that earlier this year I mentioned purchasing a Google Chromecast, but I never reported that I gave up using it almost immediately. We had a lot of trouble trying to connect our phones and/or tablet to it while maintaining a stable internet connection, so it was essentially a waste of money. (Luckily it only cost like $25.) The Amazon Fire TV is different from the Chromecast because instead of needing to send the signal from your phone or whatnot to the device, you can play shows and movies directly from the Fire TV.
The Amazon Fire TV was super easy to set up. I had it up and running in about five minutes and the longest part of installation was entering our wifi password because I always forget that it’s case sensitive. Once it was connected I just switched on the TV and was able to browse all of the listings.
With an Amazon Fire TV you can stream movies, television shows, and games from all of the services above. Honestly, at this point we’re really only going to use it to watch shows on Amazon Instant Video and Netflix, but it’s great that there are so many options! To use apps like Netflix you must, of course, have a Netflix subscription and I’m sure that is true for some of these other options as well. The only service currently missing that would be nice is HBO Go, but most of the HBO catalogue is now included in Amazon Instant Video anyhow.
As much as I love TV, I don’t actually watch that much of it and think that I could probably get away with nothing more than an Amazon Fire TV in my everyday life as it has everything I need, it connects super quickly, and it’s easy to use. Did I mention that the remote is voice activated, so you can just tell it what you want to watch? It’s amazing.
I’m not usually a gadget person, but this is one investment I’m really glad I made. I used the justification that it was an early baby gift to myself, but now I don’t even need that. It’s easily the coolest piece of electronic equipment I’ve ever purchased and while the one I bought is set up in the bedroom now, I’m tempted to buy a second for the living room!

One item I’m interested in trying is their Full of Promise Tightening and Firming Neck Cream. My face is aging pretty well at the moment, but I’m never really sure what to do about my neck. I’ve been using my green tea coconut oil moisturizer on my neck, though I’m not sure if I need something stronger.
According to the description, this product:
this wonderfully light yet deeply nourishing cream makes a thin, crepey-looking neckline a thing of the past. full of promise tightening and firming neck cream helps improve skin firmness and elasticity, while improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Sounds like a winner?

Philosophy’s selection of combination shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath products make great gifts (for others or yourself), and they appear to be selling out quickly at the moment! The Fresh Cream Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Bubble Bath is one of their newest products, and I think it sounds amazingly luxurious.
