J.Crew isn’t the only one still shipping in time for Christmas! If any beauty lovers are on your shopping list (and still without a gift), Marc Jacobs Beauty has you covered because they are offering free overnight shipping on any order placed before 6 p.m. EST TONIGHT (December 22, 2014).
Marc Jacobs Beauty Coupon: Use code “OVERNIGHT” at checkout to take advantage of this offer, but you’ll have to hurry!
Marc Jacobs Beauty has some wonderful holiday beauty collections available, including La Coquette that’s pictured above. Costing $55, this set apparently includes some of Marc Jacobs’ most covetable items:
With a Magic Marc’er liquid eyeliner in Blacquer, the perfect nude nail polish, and a shimmering lip gloss for pink pout, you’ll be ready for a night of magic. This set also contains a signature mirror contained in a Marc Jacobs-designed pochette.
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with anything from the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection!
My husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas, as we usually get each other a trip or something for the house. Last year we purchased a new refrigerator and I was over the moon. That’s how you know you are an adult. Anyway, with the birth of the twins this year trips are on hold. And so are large household purchases. So we opted to get each other gifts. That got me thinking, what did I want? So I thought I’d share my Christmas wish list with you all today. (Check out Lisa’s wish list here.)
Those Stella McCartney sneakers are amazing. If they wound up in my home I wouldn’t be upset. I’m also currently obsessed with blazers, so this velvet collar one is a must have. My husband and I always say “I love you more” to each other, so if he’s smart he’ll get this. And lastly, I’m dying to go to Paris, so why not act like a Parisian for the off-chance I get to go one day!
Of course anything he gets me I will love, but I thought sharing my wants would take the guess work out of it. I’m honestly excited to see what he gets!
Good news! While the number of stores offering to ship purchases in time for delivery on December 24 is seriously dwindling, J.Crew is NOT one of those stores! If you place your order in the next day or so, you can pay just $10 for overnight holiday delivery from J.Crew AND making his offer even better is the fact that pretty much everything is on sale!
$10 for overnight shipping is definitely not something you see everyday from J.Crew, nor is 30% off most full-priced items and/or an extra 40% off sale items. J.Crew might be winning the last minute shopping award today!
J.Crew Coupon: Use code “HOLIDAYTIME” at checkout to receive 30% off full-priced items and an extra 40% off sale items. Not all items are included in the 30% off, but those items that are privy to the discount are clearly marked. This coupon is valid through December 24, 2014, though in order to receive the $10 overnight shipping your order must be placed by noon EST on December 23, 2014.
Some families get new PJs to wear on Christmas Eve, so if that’s your tradition and you’re majorly behind in your shopping… or looking to start a new tradition, here are some options:
Under the law, vouchers (such as $25 for $50 at X company) are not allowed to have set expiration dates where the total value of the voucher expires. You should always, at a minimum, be able to redeem the cash portion of the voucher that you spent. For instance, if the voucher expires you may not have access to the entire $50, but you would still be able to redeem the voucher for the $25 you spent to buy it. From my understanding, this lawsuit is alleging that Rue La La set expiration dates on the vouchers and if the voucher expired people were unable to redeem them for the cash portion they paid.
The idea of “vouchers” in this capacity was fairly new when online sample sale sites and daily deal sites took off (both of which frequently sold “vouchers”) and I don’t know if the law was murky or companies just weren’t familiar with the law, but there’s also a Groupon class action settlement covering basically the same exact issue.
Anyhow, if you purchased a voucher from Rue La La on or before May 3, 2013 that you were UNABLE to redeem, you may be a part of the Rue La La class action settlement and entitled to receive future credits from the company once the class is settled. Claim forms must be received by May 12, 2015.
As for when credits might be received, the claim website says this:
The Court will hold a hearing on March 13, 2015 to decide whether to approve the settlement. If the Court approves the settlement, there may be appeals. If that happens, please be patient. After the time for appeal has expired and all appeals are settled, Rue La La will issue account credits for valid claims within the following 6 months.
If you believe yourself to be a member of this class, be sure to check out the Rue La La Class Action Settlement website and submit your claim form. If you don’t think you’re a member of the class there is no need to do anything! (Although you can submit an objection to the lawsuit in general.)
Are you ready for the most random post EVER? Well, here it is.
Yesterday I had to take care of a few errands and I randomly stopped into Walgreens. This was a fortuitous decision on my behalf because I rarely go to this store as CVS is closer to my house. I spent some time wandering the aisles, because it’s impossible to just run in and grab what’s needed, when I spotted a rack of Seamless Fleece-Lined Leggings. Really, without even thinking about it I grabbed a pair. At $5.99 it was a fairly cheap impulse purchase.
Well, I’m wearing that impulse purchase today and let me tell you: These leggings might be one of my favorite things EVER. They are so so so comfortable that I may not wear anything else this winter.
No, seriously. I ran back out to Walgreens this afternoon and purchased 3 more pairs for myself and a pair for a friend. (They’re $5.99 each or 2 for $10.) I now have a COLLECTION of leggings from Walgreens.
There are few things I rave and gush about, but these cheap leggings? I LOVE them.
The Seamless Fleece-Lined Leggings are available in one-size-fits-most (traditional sizes) and one-size-fits-most (plus sizes). I got the plus size version for myself and they fit great. It’s hard to describe the fit on leggings because they are tight but there’s also plenty of room, if that makes sense. There’s definitely enough room that the waistband will stretch enough to accommodate my ever-expanding waistline without getting too tight, but I think they will work fine after the baby is born, too. I really cannot comment on the traditional sized leggings, except to say that if they’re anything like the plus size ones then they shouldn’t be as constricting as fleece-lined leggings tend to be. (I love fleece-lined leggings but they always seem to run really small.)
I don’t expect these leggings to hold up forever, but the quality is surprisingly good and hey, for just $5 per pair they seemed like a worthy investment.
Thus concludes my love letter to the Seamless Fleece-Lined Leggings from Walgreens. If you see them on the shelves I highly recommend treating yourself to a pair!
It feels like the subscription boxes are really going out of their way this year to spoil their subscribers! The December PopSugar Must Have Box was one of the best boxes I’ve ever received from any company. The December Glossybox had FOUR full-size products included that I can’t wait to use (and I’m already using the deluxe sample of nail polish). And now the December Birchbox came stuffed to the brim with a bunch of new-to-me products. This is shaping up to be one of the best months ever for subscription boxes!
Here’s what I received in my December Birchbox:
I believe that every Birchbox this month came stuffed with a $10 coupon to spend at Gap, with no minimum purchase requirement! This could come in VERY handy for those after-Christmas sales that are on the horizon!
Vasanti Cosmetics Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in Rose Gold – The past couple of months Birchbox has been sending out emails allowing subscribers to pick one of the samples they would receive. I missed previous emails, but this month I was able to choose this product. Rose Gold. Eyeliner. It combines two of my favorite things so it seemed like a no-brainer! I will probably use this in more of a highlighter capacity rather than a stand-alone liner, but we shall see!
W3LL People Bio Brightener Stick – Speaking of highlighter, my box also contained this one from W3LL People, which is a brand I’ve never encountered before. While this is a deluxe sample, I’m pretty sure there’s enough product here to last me a lifetime! This product allegedly adds a “flattering shimmer while nourishing skin.”
