Taking a Break (But Please Continue Without Me on This Post!)

Thanks Ryan, that does help!

So in the midst of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday madness (aka: the Nouveau Cheap Olympics), I planned to post about the Target deal today and then take a short break to get away from the computer, this blog, and beauty in general. Don't get me wrong--I LOVE all of those things, but I yeah, I need a break. I slept for probably a combined total of 10 hours over the past five days, and it shows on my both my face, and my soul! I just need a few days to focus on other things outside of the beauty world (Mr. G., my family, cleaning my house, and basically doing nothing at all but snuggling on the couch, watching movies and eating. Lots of eating!).

I should be back to blogging again on Thursday, but in the meantime:

  • Please continue on without me! If you know of any hot deals this week, leave a comment below and fill us in! I'll continue to check my comments here and approve them on a regular basis, but I will not be responding to comments here or on social media until Thursday.
  • Many of the retailers that offered Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals have extended their deals into today, and through the week. So if you see a deal HERE that you're interested in, try clicking those links anyway--you might still be able to get those deals.

And finally, I want to thank each and every one of you for your help, tips, patience, and understanding during the BF/CM madness. I had a lot of information coming at me from all sides during that time, and I want to apologize if I missed any of your comments, tweets, emails, etc. during the craziness. If I failed to thank you, or even acknowledge your messages during that time, please accept my sincerest apologies, and know that I am so grateful that you took time out of your day to let me know about a deal. You will never understand how much I value you as readers, and as friends, and I only wish I could personally tell you that and give you a huge hug and a brand new lipstick as a token of my thanks!

Love,
G. xo

    1. (coming out of my break for one quick second just to tell you that I already have a large "About Me" section right on the top menu bar. Just click where it says "ABOUT".) :)

  19. I discovered your blog just in time (and learned to scout for more deals on my own). FYI, I was waiting for the Target deal (25%) to save on Mineral Fusion line, but last minute found it at 30% off on Dermstore (in conjunction with Ebates). Saved lots on great deals for a "Treat Yo Self" care package for my sis, thanks for your generosity in organizing all this helpful info!

  23. Just wanted to say that today in the mail I received my one time use code from Sephora for $15 off $50 or more. It can be used between Dec. 2nd through Dec. 13th. Keep an eye out ladies if you've been waiting for this deal. Also just so you know today the Urban Decay by Gwen Stephani palette released on Sephora. If you've been eyeing this palette you can use this code to score it for $43. Original price of palette is $58.

    2. It is for Beauty Insiders, VIB and VIB Rouge members.

  24. You know, I was thinking about you over the weekend and I was going to send you a message. I can't imagine the work involved to publish and then keep editing the sale posts...plus everything else. My head was spinning with each additional email I got telling me of another place to spend my money...it's like I was afraid I'd forget to shop somewhere. If I was publishing all of that, I'd seriously just be in a fetal position on the floor right now. Take care, G. Veg and shop!!!

  25. Thank you G. and thank you to everyone that helped to spread tips and deals!!! It must have been exhausting during the past week. I checked your blog posts everyday but could not even keep up with all the posts, let alone deeply check out all the deals that were posted. Too many promotions all at once, but that is the beautiful monster that is BF/CM. Take a break, you deserve it. Enjoy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. You posted so many blog posts in the past week. You totally deserve a break. Get some sleep lady!! I'm always blown away by how hard you work but even more so recently.

  27. Treat yo'self to a few naps! Deals I saw yesterday: Estee Lauder at TJ Maxx. I was running late on my lunch break so couldn't stop to get full details, but I did see a mini lipstick duo (maybe with mirror), a palette of maybe shadows and blushes?, and one other thing. The lipsticks were....$29? Sorry I don't have details, but I was *quite* late!

    1. Yes, my local Marshalls has a lot of Laura Gellar, Clinique, and Estee Lauder kits on sale right now.

  28. Enjoy your break, G!!!!! You absolutely slayed it these past few weeks. I had to hold myself back from the Black Friday Cyber Monday sales since I had to focus on other gifts and I bought waaaay too much make up in the couple of weeks leading up to Thanksgiving!!!! I wish you lots of sleep, lots of good eats and lots of family and friend time, enjoy some holiday movies!!!!!! xoxo

  29. VIBs get $20 off a $50 purchase and VIB Rouge get $25 off $50. Check your snail mail. If the coupon hasn't arrived, call or email Sephora. :)

  30. I think that it is $20 off of $50 for VIBs and $25 of $50 for VIBRouges. Look out for the email/or snail mail coupon.

  31. I've had two issues with shipments thus far, and I am pleased with how quickly and well they were handled.

    1. Sephora only sent 1 of the 2 Clarisonic brush heads I ordered. A replacement was immediately sent out with 2-day shipping.

    2. ELF sent me two broken items (or they broke during shipping) and refunded me the amount for those pieces. One item (a pallette) is still mostly usable, so I'm going to just going to clean out the busted shadow and try the rest. The other broken item is not salvageable.

    Hooray for good customer service!

    1. For awhile Sephora kept losing my packages. I live in a duplex so it happens but with them it happened twice in a row. Every time I called they immediately next-day air shipped my packages. It was superb. Now I just get my stuff shipped to work. I was amazed at how well they handled everything.

    2. there are a lot of youtube videos of people fixing broken pressed items (shadows/blushes etc) you should look into it before chucking them. It involves mashing them up into dust and then spraying or dripping them with an alcohol solution.

    3. Hmmmm...it could be worth a shot! Worst case is I just make a mess of an already broken product. But if it works, I'll be happy :)

  32. Thank you for all the hard work you did! Enjoy your rest!

  33. Hi ladies, Makeup geek is having a one day only sale, $10 for 4 eyeshadows (Fiji, Rapunzel, Bitten, Bedrock). Shipping is $2.99 cause it's very light. If you like the colors it's a good deal since it's only $2.5 for one pan. :)

  36. The Sephora Favorites "Makeup Must Haves" JCP exclusive is now being sold for $29 inside my store, rather than $39! Picked it up to try the Smashbox Primer Water. I love these sets! You can use your $?? off $50 coupon at Sephora's inside JCP as well.
