Monday Mix: This is just to say…

By Voxy  

Plums in a bowl in the light by lepiaf.geo.— that I am testing up a storm of products, including hand/body creams for the hand cream round-up that Elsie requested

— that organizing my makeup is almost as much fun as actually applying it

— that organizing my house is not nearly as much fun as organizing my makeup

— that WordPress, which is the software that makes this blog run, has just put out a new upgrade in which the auto-scheduler is now broken, so who knows when posts will actually show up on the site; it’s a little adventure

— that dartboards are very useful for getting out one’s aggression, especially if one is willing to forego the whole “throwing” business and just pound the darts into the board with one’s fist

— that spackle is something I should really have in my house at all times, preferably close to the dartboard

— that yesterday, when I played a church gig, I was reminded that I really love the scent of holy water and candle smoke

— that I also love standing outside on my balcony early on a snowy December morning, listening to the silence and feeling the exquisitely cold brush of snowflakes wet against my face

— that if I could bottle that and sell it, I would be a millionaire

— that no cosmetics can even come close to imitating the loveliness of a welcoming smile and a face filled with kindness

— that I have not started my Christmas shopping yet and I had better do so. And so I am hoping that I find some really good…


Uh… Cancel that exclamation point. There’s not much new to report here. You can still get free shipping on lots of sites; some require a minimum purchase.

HauteLook has Lotus organic cosmetics beginning today at 11 am Eastern/8 am Pacific.

Rumor has it that starting on Wednesday 12/23, Sephora will be offering an extra 20% off all sale items with code EXTRA.

Previously announced sales still going on:

DDF Skincare: 25% off, plus free shipping and samples, through 12/24. Use code DDFHOLIDAY • NARS: 20% off orders over $60 through 12/31 with code CP9H1211 • Tarte: 25% off through 12/31 with code ECOSCENE25 • Too Faced: 30% off through 12/31 with code LUCKYBREAKS

    The Sephora EXTRA sale goes through 12/31. I just got an email. It’s like getting invited to the ORT!

      But better! And cheaper! And more sparkly! :D

      Yes, I picked up a thing or two; mostly refills of staples. 20% off sale prices was just too good a deal to pass up. The samples were really unappealing when I placed the order so there’s not much to look forward to in that department.

      (Hmm, I think that will be a Question of the Week sometime soon.)
