One of my Favorite Nordstrom Events...

Aside from the Women's/Children's Half Yearly and Anniversary sale there's another deal time that really gets me going....BUY 2 MASCARAS GET ONE FREE!! 

I know this is a pretty pricey way to score a free mascara but if you are fanatical about certain luxury brands..ahem..cough..CHANEL INIMITABLE...and you like to try out other brands...hello YSL or Trish McEvoy. 

This is a bi-annual event - I believe the next one should be around Fall. I could be wrong so this is your chance to make friends with the super friendly Nordstrom Cosmetic Sales Assistants. They will keep you up-to-date. Trust me, they will answer all questions and give you all the necessary details if that means you will come back to them. 

Last time I tried YSL Babydoll (meh)....Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stretch (meh but better than the Babydoll) and my usual Chanel Inimitable Intense. This time I went back to strong with Chanel - Le Volume/Inimitable Intense. I hear from the MUA at the counter that layering the two gives you ultimate lashes and you know I love a challenge! I wanted to give another YSL formula another shot so according to Sales Associate that helped me the Volume Effet Faux Cils is comparable to GA's original Eyes to Kill formula - another high end mascara that I just adore!

I hope you scored in-store, like I did, or you had time to place your order. Last time, I didn't hesitate to put in that order - I think I was barely awake while giving my shipping info. And if you were lucky enough to get your mascaras, what ended up in your shopping basket? 

Life of a beauty addict....

Coming soon from the folks at Bumble and bumble....

If you are a Bumble fanatic like me, your ears stand up at attention when you hear a new hair product is rolling out SOON.

Can you imagine if your stylist tests it out on you before it's even on the shelves, let alone a price tag?

One of my favorite hair serums is the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil, well it sounds like a collection based around that is about to launch. Since I'm a lucky girl and faithful to my stylist, he tested out the shampoo, conditioner and this hair primer on my dehydrated locks:

Please overlook the lip gloss left on the rim of my wine glass, was a long drive and day at work, and please focus on the bottle! I apologize, I should have snapped a photo of the back or at least check the ingredients to see if anything popped out at me. From what I remember, it smells fantastic and left my hair soft for days and lustrous. Then again, I'm assuming the combination of the shampoo, conditioner, primer and oil played a key part in this effect.

I cannot report a launch date or price but do know, it's coming soon!!

And here I am with the always fabulous, Melvin Burns!

In a perfect world, he'd blow out my hair regularly but if that were the case, I'd have to bribe him regularly with Prada.

I'd be homeless but at least my hair would look fly on a regular basis!
