All Access Glam Palette - $15

 Elizabeth & James - Nirvana Black & White  Mini Rollerball Perfume Set - $20

This perfume set is ALL the RAGE this year! It's been one of the hottest fragrances on the market. 

That being said....this mini rollerball set is an awesome way to be able to try BOTH scents before you jump in and buy a full size version.
The Nirvana Black scent is the darker, more musky and spicy scent of the two. (I'm guessing that's why it's called BLACK?!?...LOL)
The Nirvana White scent is lighter, and more floral and feminine. 
Each rollerball contains .24oz.
Perfect for trying out a new scent OR for travel!
This is a STEAL for $20 bucks because ONE .34oz rollerball normally runs $22!! And you are getting DOUBLE!
The Full Size version of this perfume (The Black or The White) runs $55/1oz or $75/1.7oz.
Try out or GIFT this year's hottest scent on the CHEAP!

 Rollerball Set - $20

Sephora Favorites - Give Me Some Lip Sampler - $25
Ummmm hello gorgeous lip set!!!!
I seriously can't believe the $25 price tag on this one! 
You get 5 Deluxe sized Lip samples and 1 FULL size lippie in this set!!
The full size item is the Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss in better sit down for this....

The full size gloss runs $20!!!!!!!!!!!
And reminder...this 6 piece set is only $25!!!!!!
Plus they are ALL prestige brands of lip items (Buxom, Nars, Marc Jacobs, Bite, Smashbox, and Urban Decay)!!!
I don't know about you...but I never...ever...seem to finish a lip gloss or lipstick.
I always find something new and move on.
So these deluxe size samples are PERFECT!
LOVE this deal!!!

Give Me Some Lip - $25  

 Buxom - Dolly's High Roller Collection Palette - $29

I have had my eye on this limited edition palette ever since it came out this holiday season!
You all know I love Buxom....And this is such a beautiful little set!

4 Shadows
1 Black Eyeliner 
1 Blush
1 Highlighter
1 Bronzer
2 Lip Glosses

Holy Cow...AWESOME!! Perfect for a gift or if you will be traveling a lot this year!
The thing that makes this palette even BETTER is...that it was $42 when I put it on my wish list....and NOW...
It's $29!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hurry and snatch this up!!!

Buxom Dolly's High Roller - $29

Too Faced Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses Palette - $34
Now...this adorable palette might seem like a SPLURGE instead of a steal...but let me explain!

Too Faced has a bronzer called Chocolate Soleil (Here) that is fast becoming a cult classic in the beauty world. 
I have not been able to try this one yet, but it's at the TOP of my wish list becuase I have heard that it gives an amazing matte bronze finish....AND.....IT SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE!!!!!!
How can you not want a bronzer that smells like chocolate!!?????
The FULL size bronzer (.34oz) is $30.
The Chocolate Soleil bronzer in THIS .19oz! 
That's more than half the size of the full version!
That fact alone is why I recommend this beautiful palette as a STEAL!
This set is valued at $75 in case you were wondering...

You get...
1 Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (.19oz)
1 Highlighter/Bronzer Trio in Snow Bunny (.19oz)
3 Shadows
1 Nude Lip Cream

Do I really have to say it......STEAL!!!!!!!!

Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses - $34

Bare Minerals Two for the Show - $39
I have really been jumping on the Bare Minerals train lately.
They have had some awesome kits and deals for the holidays and this one is no different.
This set has 10 gorgeous eyeshadows....10!!!
You get an array of soft nudes to shimmery deep colors! LOVE!
The only Bare Minerals products I have used are their blushes and eyeshadows and I can tell you....
Since they are in loose powder form, they seem like they never end!
I have YET to fully use one up...and I'm embarrassed to say how long I've had them!!
One loose shadow runs $14!!!!! 
I think these are just a smidge smaller than the full size versions...but this set is still valued at $110!
So when you get $10 for $39...

Two for the Show - $39

Speaking of Bubble Baths....

Have any of you tried LUSH bath products!?
HOLY GRAIL of luxury bath items in my book!
I'm sure you've seen the Lush stores in your local shopping centers...well....You've probably SMELLED them before you saw them.
It's like a bath goody candy store!

They use fresh, organic ingredients to hand make all of their products!
Some products are so Fresh" that you actually have to keep them in your refrigerator!
But..Seriously handmade...they actually put the picture of the person who MADE the item on the product (Facial masks, Scrubs, Creams etc...the list goes on and on!).

I can't believe I didn't include them in my 1st Holiday Gift Guide Post! I swear inside every grown woman is a little girl stamping her feet for a hot bubble bath!!!

Here are my top picks from LUSH!

Bath Bombs
These little balls of bath goodness are...amazing....for lack of a better word.
Drop them in the hot water and watch them fizz and spread the silky skin moisturizers and breath in that glorious scent!
Some bombs have surprises...they change the water colors, have sparkles inside, crackle like a warm fire...but... sometimes you just have to pop it in the tub to see!
29 Different kinds!!!

Dashing Santa (Citrus Scent) - $5.25

Father Christmas (Light, Sweet Scent) - $6.40

Cinders (Cinnamon Scent) - $4.95

The only way to make a bath with a bath bomb even with...

A Luxury Bath Melt. will feel like you have gone back in TIME because your skin will be so SOFT!

Who knows...ask your significant other to help you apply this and you might get a back massage out of it!

Some of them you actually can't buy online because they are so FRESH and have to be refrigerated. 
So check out your local LUSH store for those options!
