Get through your Friday (or weekend) with some shopping fun! In case you didn’t know, this Sunday is Veteran’s Day, which is one more holiday for retailers to push sales for. So here’s what you can expect this weekend…
Sephora is still having their Friends & Family sale, which will continue until November 21st. I see tons of items already out of stock, and I doubt they’ll be restocked before this steal is up! Save 20% with code FF2007!
Also, we’d love to encourage everyone to submit to the site! We are always looking for submissions of guest looks (with at least one close-up and list of products used), tutorials, your organization solutions, and of course, your questions. If you have something else you’d like to contribute, feel free to send it along! All submissions and feedback should find their way to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy your weekend!
What’s your favorite facial sunscreen? What’s the best one you’ve found for your face? What makes it so good?
I’ve been using Oil of Olay’s Complete (SPF15), but I just ordered Shisheido’s Face/Body sunscreen (SPF55), so I hope that one works out! The Olay one has lasted me forever, and if Shiseido’s does the same I’ll be happy to pay the price difference.
P.S. – What are your weekend plans? I have a take-home final exam, so I’ll be busy doing that. In fact, I have to start it as soon as it’s distributed at noon today, because I’m headin’ out bright and early Saturday morning to meet up with my girl, Karen, for Nordstrom’s Trend Show. Then, off to my parents’ house to babysit my sister and write the rest of my memo.
