If you are not yet a fan of Stila Cosmetics you really must give them a try. They were one of the first trendier cosmetics lines that sprung up to give us what the mass department store brands were not giving us.

Of course through the years I was a little (more) disloyal and tried many other brands but I have come back full circle and count Stila as one of my go to brands especially for eye shadow and the lip glazes.

Well right now Stila has an unbelievable set available called The Gift of Appreciation-and boy do I appreciate it!!

It is $192 in value for only $38 and they are all items you will want to use right away. I got mine in the mail tonight and am so excited I called all my friends to tell them and am now writing fast so you can grab this set before it disappears.

Set contains:

Baked Eye Shadow Trio – Gold Glow
Kajal Eye Liner – Topaz
Illuminating Finishing Powder – Rose Gold
Lash Visor (mascara) – Brown
Plumping Lip Glaze – Minty Mint
Long Wear Lip Color – Flushed
Pressed Powder – Medium
Lip Rouge – Pucker (this is a liquid lip stain with a pen like applicator)
Eye Pencil Sharpener

You can get the set both at Stila direct or at Sephora.

Dont forget that if you sign up for Stila email you receive a coupon for 20% off your first purchase. runs really great deals from time to time and I especially love their BOGOs.

They carry lines that you otherwise never see discounted. For example Part of the BOGO this time are Mamma Mio Skincare for Supermamas.

These are fantastic products to use anytime and some especially during and after pregnancy. Favorites are the ZAP Shrink to Fit and Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter. Also check out their Kits which have a sampling of grouped products.

If I were stranded on an island I would take mascara with me…seriously. I am blonde which means so are my eyebrows and eyelashes. In younger years I sometimes forgot Mascara in the morning which caused coworkers to ask me if I was sick…it is NOT a pretty sight!

So over the years I have learned my lesson and now the first thing I do in morning after brushing my teeth is put on mascara. So you can imagine the incredible amount of different brands and formulas of mascara I have tried from the drugstore darlings to the department store divas. I have a similar rating to Good Housekeeping and most mascaras end up with poor or fair ratings. Only a few have ever gotten excellent-I think the count is at 3 right now from all the years of trials. If I think about the sheer amount of money I have spent on mascara over the years I cringe…

For a long time I stuck to the Dior Show mascara-It did and does an excellent job but is a little on the pricier side and I do try to find products that are a little “greener”. I was thrilled to try some natural brands but was severely disappointed with the clumpy messes I got.

Then came along Buxom from Bare Escentuals-yes the same brand you see on the infomercials famous for the Bare Minerals. To say I was skeptical was to say the least. Although I had tried the Buxom lipgloss and was very pleasantly surprised (still my favorite gloss out there). But the box was gorgeously shiny silver and it promised antioxidants so I forked over my $18.

And I was floored! This was no ordinary mascara-but rather a miracle. The brush itself had a special hourglass shape that got the inner and outer lashes and the formula glided on making the lashes luscious and gorgeous.

Well I have been truly hooked since I first discovered this gem and I think my mascara trials (and woes) are over. This is really an exceptional mascara and the best part is that without knowing it I bought a “green” mascara. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes or phalates.

I am NOT switching again and if they discontinue it I will be the crazy person buying up every last tube on ebay.

The Buxom mascara is exclusively at Sephora stores and online.

Seems like Online Designer Sales are my theme this week. I was going to give these to you one at a time but I just got notice of a great deal another of my favorite Online Designer Sales Sites-Rue La La so I could not hold out on you.

Rue La La is the destination for 2-day-only Boutiques, filled with the designers we love at private sale prices. It’s free, fabulous, and invitation-only.

Here comes the fabulous special-become a member and place an order from any Boutique using the Rue La La MOBILE SITE by the end of Friday and get a $25 iTunes® gift card and iPhone™ cover.

Today’s Boutiques are Philosophy, Catherine Malandrino and Lagos.

Here’s your invitation!

Shhhh -here comes another secret.

Here is another amazing site for Online Designer Sales-Hautelook.

Hautelook offers exclusive, limited time Shopping Events with prices up to 75% off retail! They have some amazing designer sales daily and I know you will love this site.

Once you register you will receive an email daily with the sales for that day. They offer Women’s, Men’s Kid’s and Home Items. Sometimes they also run Beauty Sales-got a great selection of Josie Maran Cosmetics there recently for great prices.

I love Hautelook and consider it one of my weapons to get a stylish wardrobe for less. I have bought some great items also for my little girl-they recently had a Feather Baby Sale that I could not pass up.

Use my personal invitation to get access to these great sales!

Can I tell you how much I LOVE their products? I am very conscious of the chemicals in most products and especially for my little girl, Katarina or Kat as we call her, I make sure that all the products I use on her are natural, organic and do not contain certain chemicals-more on that topic later.

Now granted some organic or natural products definitely smell funky and do not work worth anything. But there are many out there and more and more coming onto the scene that are absolutely luxe!

California Baby is one of these. Their products work great, smell better, and are good for you, baby and the environment. What could be better!

My favorite is their Bubble Bath which includes a wand for making bubbles (playtime included) and comes in great scents such as Overtired and Cranky, Calming etc.

I also love the Calming Shower Gel that I use on Kat every night. Smells great and she is off in lala land very quickly after her bath.

Now the budget part is that their line is something you would expect to find in boutiques and high end Beauty Stores only but you can find them at most Baby Stores as well as Target, Wholefoods and online at and (often with a discount)

You need very little of this product so it goes a long way. This will definitely change Bath Time with you Baby.
