Blog Update (and Open Post)


Hello everyone! I am so sorry it's taken me so long to post this, but I'm back! Here's a short recap of what's been going on, since I know you have questions!

So after the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals died down, I wanted to take a little break for a few days and just go completely off the grid. I needed some time to myself to refocus and tend to real life stuff. But then on my birthday (which was on 12/13), I got sick. Really sick. We're talking can't-get-out-of-bed sick. I didn't have the energy to even look at my phone, check the blog or social media--I just needed to focus on getting better. Needless to say, it was the worst birthday ever.

A few days after my birthday, I started to feel like myself again and I posted a quick update on my Instagram just letting everyone know what was going on. I tried to get out and do some Christmas shopping, and I think I just pushed myself too hard too fast, and I felt lousy again. So I basically shut down and focused again on resting and getting better. 

So that brings us to today! I am FINALLY about 90% better so I dusted off the ol' laptop and here I am. Finally doing this blog post. I want to thank each and every one one of you who commented and sent me emails and messages asking if I was OK. You have no idea how much I appreciate that. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a bubble here, not really knowing how many people are reading the blog or how many people I may be connecting with (I only have comments and "likes" to judge that on, but I realize that some people read this blog whom I never hear from and I'm totally OK with that; that's just the way the internet works). But seeing comments from both longtime readers and readers whom I never knew existed touched me in a way that I can't really express in words. So thank you. From the bottom my heart, thank you for your concern.

So now that I'm back, I hope you'll give me a few days to get my bearings. I have approximately 800 unread emails right now and I have NO idea where we stand on deals and which retailers may still be shipping in time for Christmas, etc. I'm guessing that that window has closed for many retailers, but I'm also guessing that you're all probably way better off when it comes to holiday shopping than I am, and that you have almost all of the people on your lists crossed off!

So I'm thinking that the best way to get back up to speed is to hear from YOU. If you know of any hot deals, special sales, freebies, etc. that you think we all should know about, please do comment below and share them with us. Within the next few days, I'll do my best to get back up to speed and then it will be business as usual around here. I know that there are TONS of new 2017 drugstore products that I need to post about, and I also know that the CVS semi-annual beauty clearance sale is underway, so I am going to try to get a list up before the week is over. What else....? Hopefully you all can fill me in!

Again, I want to thank you for your messages and concern. It was never my intent to be away for this long, I deeply apologize for not updating you sooner. Today is really the first day that I truly feel like "me" again, and that's why I'm posting this today.

Love,
G. xo

I only know what she tells me lol. I might have to get her a set for Christmas. sad you won't be at Target any more if her things are good.

    7. Sonia Kashuk closed her twitter account recently (https://twitter.com/SoniaKashuk/), her IG states that she's saying good-bye to her role as the creative director of her brand (https://www.instagram.com/p/BN7M-8HArv0/) and soniakashuk.com redirects to www.target.com. :-(

  11. My dearest G! So glad you are feeling better and almost back 100%. I know what it is like to be that sick. Sometimes our bodies make us do what we don't want to do (take it down for a while). Continue to get better. As for sales: I haven't really paid attention. I picked up a few new releases that were not on sale. No I am not finished shopping but I am off from work 12/22 until 1/3 so I have time to finish. Again so glad you are feeling better. I really missed your posts. I didn't realize how much I enjoy your blog until now. Xoxo!

    ReplyDelete
  18. G, I figured (being old & forgetful) that I'd missed reading you letting us know you needed a break/vacation & thought 'good for you, you need it'. So glad you are feeling better. (I will say I was in serious withdrawal from not having your daily posts to read, yours being my #1 read!) I think most sales are winding down this close to all of the various holidays. I know we are all looking forward to the 'after' sales!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I read daily so I was wondering what happened to you thank GOD your ok!!!! Be BLESSED HUGS. Stay well glad you're back!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I was wondering the other day why I hadn't been getting your texts. I was like, did I stop them by accident? Lol Glad you're feeling better and hope you get your Christmas shopping done in time!

    My contribution to the current sales: Ulta has a 20% off coupon code(404830) for your entire purchase including fragrance until December 24th. Sokoglam is doing free U.S. shipping until 12/31 w/ code Holidayship. Memebox is doing 10% off w/ code Holiday10 and they're doing 5X Memepoints on all purchases until 1/1/17. Hope this helps someone!

  21. So glad you're ok. Long time reader, and my stomach dropped when I saw the heading of this page. I thought you were going to leave us. Glad you're back! You do so much amazing work. Thank you.

  22. Happy to hear you are feeling better!! My shop is shipping quick, but it's probably too late to get it by the 24th. I do sell email only gift certificates though!
    Take care of yourself...

  23. I saw these Ulta deals yesterday:

    Laura Geller best of baked palette reg 49.00 on sale for $35
    I swatched them in the store and they looked beautiful.

  24. Glad to have you back! I was about to leave a message for you. I don't post often, but I read Nouveau Cheap every day. Target is having a major clearance in their beauty section. The beauty ambassador told me that they are revamping the section with new products the second week of January. It looks like Physicians Formula is getting axed from my Target, as the whole line is on clearance. NYC is all on clearance, too, but I was told they are redoing their packaging.
    Rest up and get well! Don't push yourself to much on here. Give the sales a break and do some nice reviews. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My Target was the same. Virtually the only line that wasn't clearanced out was Rimmel. But they had a huge clearance on Rimmel back around Labor Day. At least 50% on most Neutragena, Physician's Formula, Maybelline, Sonia Kashuk, Revlon, etc. Lipsticks on sale everywhere. It was a Christmas Miracle!

  32. Semi-longtime lurker, and first ever post to let you know that I am so glad that you're feeling better :) I truly missed your updates!! There's just no site quite like this one on the internet - you truly fill a much needed void in the cosmetics-obsessed realm! With the help of your informative posts, I bought waaaay too much during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and I'm already gearing up for the post-Xmas sales madness to come!! Thank you for all your tireless hard work, and know that you are very much appreciated. ❤️

  33. I am truly sorry that you have not been feeling well and that you were sick. I hope that when you are 100% you take the time to celebrate your birthday even if the date has pasted, you deserve it. You are such a super star, because of you all of us have been able to save money. But it's not just about saving money, you have taken your time and resources to help us buy gifts for our family and friends, get that special something for ourselves. Personally I have been unemployed for over a year and because of your blog which contains your research and the community of followers and their research I have been able to work with my budget to help others. THANKS YOU G AND THANK YOU my fellow followers

  36. G!!!!!! I was so worried about you and kept thinking that since I don't know you personally there was no way to contact you but I knew something was wrong because you always tell us when you are going on vacation or taking a break from blogging. SO glad to hear (and see) you are back!!! Makeup aside, I was truly concerned for your well being. I kept checking every day and hoping something bad didn't happen. As I said, I don't know you personally but I've been reading your blog for years now and I feel I do have some sort of connection with you so I was truly concerned. Thank goodness you are better!!!!!! Merry Christmas!! xo -Carol

    Oh, and when you're ready...I found a display of all the Wet n Wild Spring 2017 stuff at Christmas Tree Shop! After doing a little dance of joy, you were the first person I thought of. I took a bunch of pics and figured I'd wait til you were back on your feet before offering them up ;)

  45. G! Belated happy birthday! I was definitely worried about you. Glad to hear you're on the mend!
    My only makeup suggestion is about holiday stuff at Walgreens. I wasn't super impressed with their "look up" items (the holiday makeup and stuff they don't have room for on regular shelves so they put up high) this year, but I did grab a couple of LA Color "Shine V. Matte" palettes around Thanksgiving, and I am so impressed with them. They are a whopping $2 each, the "shine" shades are sparkly without being full of chunky glitter, and the matte shades are quite pigmented - some of the darker ones almost too much so! I got 2 of them, and I may try to track down the others. I have used the ones I have every day for the last several weeks, and I am still loving them. These are way better than the Profusion palettes they have had the last several years.

  48. G, I'm happy to hear you feel better! I was getting worried something serious happened to you. As a long time reader of your blog I've noticed that you post almost everyday.

  52. First time commenting here. My day is never complete without checking your blog at least twice and I truly missed you and your posts! You did such a great job over the holidays that I thought that you had perhaps taken a vacation to unwind. But then I grew a little concerned when there was nothing from your side and I was hoping everything was okay! Glad to know you are feeling better!!!

  64. I too was wondering what happened! I thought you needed a break. After all you were going full force what seemed like forever. I'm happy to hear you're ok and almost 100%! It seems like UD is fading out a few products. Usually they drop the price. Then everyone else drops the price of their products. Then they're gone forever! Oh, I seen today that Tarte is coming out with an amazing palette this summer. I love Tarte!

  66. Hello...I don't know of any deals and I too am sick...take care of yourself entirely FIRST ...then back into the swing of things...things can wait...your health cannot.

  75. I'm so glad you're back! I had a weird moment. The day you went awol (i'm sorry u were sick) I unsubscribed. I love your blog and emails, but I'm going on a nobuy in 2017. So the day after I unsubscribed I still immediately checked your site and didn't see any updates. I kept checking and since you normally post everyday I thought I'd been blocked for unsubscribing:) Neway I'm glad your back and I've since resubscribed.

We love you and want you to get back on your feet <3 As for deals Stila is on Hautelook and Laura Geller will be on there tomorrow. The too faced peaches pallette is on HSN. Does anyone know if that visa checkout discount still works? My boyfriend said he tried to use it and an error code came up

  82. Dear G., I'm so glad you are beginning to mend. Please take your time relapses are awful and discouraging. We can muddle on a few more days. Though we all miss you we can read each others comments until you are full speed. I for one will be waiting patiently for your return now that I know your family and you are OK. Merry Christmas Gianna, if I don't talk with you before then. Xo, Robin

  86. Hi, G! I am so glad to finally read your post again! I kinda hoped and thought that after the Black Friday madness, you decided to recharge and just focus also on yourself & your family. Anyway, I am sending you happy thoughts as you continue to recuperate.
    As for sales that I know, Ulta platinum members have until Dec 24 to use their 20% off coupons for their entire purchases including fragrances. Ulta also released coupon code for 20% off for qualifying purchases for non-platinum members.

  88. So sorry you were ill G!! I had been hoping you'd scampered off to some glorious Hawaiian vacation, but I guess I was wrong. Glad you're on the mend. :)

    Not exactly a super deal, but Selfridges (UK company) is now offering Selfridges+ which is a one time $50 fee for free shipping for a year. It's normally like $30-40 on it's own for a single delivery, so if you're planning on buying from our cousins across the pond, this is the best way to do it! They have a lot of brands that are hard to get here, so for the beauty lover this might be ideal.

    Thanks again for all you do G!

  97. Ulta Rewards members (not just platinum members) got a 20% off everything coupon (even most high end products)! I used mine on the Two Faced Sweet Peach palette and then they sent me another! So I used my second coupon on the Smashbox Cover Shot palette in Ablaze. The coupons are good until the 24th.

  98. I usually lurk but I am here everyday. Even though I don't know you personally it was just strange that you hadn't posted in a few days. I know that what you do is a TON of work so I figured you were taking a well deserved R&R. Then more days went by and I really started to worry and wonder if something bad had happened to you! Happy you are ok and I'm sorry that you had to be ill on your birthday. Being sick is never fun but it really sucks when it's your birthday. Take it easy on yourself! We appreciate all of your hard work for us but we want you to feel good too! :)

  103. First time commenter here! So glad to hear that you're feeling better! When I noticed that you stopped posting, I just assumed that you were taking a break since every one and their mother knows that you deserve it! You work so hard on this blog and so I thought "Good for her, she's taking a break!" But, I didn't know that you were sick this whole time! So glad that you're better and I hope that you continue to improve. Your wonderful blog posts and beautiful spirit are always so appreciated! If you ever need time away, don't worry about us here- those of us that are beauty-obsessed always find a way to find out about sales! :)

  117. I'm so glad you're back and feeling better. I've been meaning to tell you that I love your blog so much, and for more reasons than you may think. Of course, I love finding awesome deals on awesome makeup, but it's more than that. I've been going through a tough time in my personal life and I find your blog so comforting. Even if I'm not going to buy anything, I love reading out good deals and scouring the web to find makeup and beauty products that I will love. It really gives me a way to take my mind off things. I also love the camaraderie - the way all us beauty fans work together to get the best bang for our buck, the way everyone provides recommendations on products, and the way you care about your visitors. I think it really says a lot about you and about the beauty community in general. I know I look forward to popping over to your blog everyday and reading about everyone's hauls and new favorite products. So, this is my long way of saying thank you. I appreciate you and your blog more than you may realize.

  125. You can get a $30 off an $80 purchase vouchers for the Glam Glow and Clinique sites or in store. Also a 30% off the Philosophy site from the Gilt City site/app. All the vouchers are free and you can get one of each. They are restrictions so read the fine print. It's free to join Gilt City and it's worth checking every so often because they run discount vouchers, coupons, and even discount gift cards quite a bit (obviously the gift cards cost but generally the vouchers are free). About 2 years ago I got a gift card to Tarte worth $80 for $30.
