Building on the Basics

Back to basics. A mustard turtleneck sweater, and patent croc pumps create a ready-to-go look when paired with a basic corduroy two-button blazer, and dark wash denim trousers.

Taste the Rainbow

Modern style. Today’s featured watches each add colorful splashes to any outfit. The red croc leather band watch has a silver case with red dial. The yellow croc leather band watch has a silver case, white dial, and Swarovski crystal accents. And, the purple croc leather watch has a silver case and matching purple dial.

A Lovely Gift

More free stuff. Some time back in September, I got an email from Sarah Jessica Parker Beauty promising a free sample of the Lovely O So Rich Body Butter in exchange for completing a survey. I did it. What I did not expect was to actually get a full size of the body butter! Surprise surprise.

That’s a Wrap

Around and around. The tan leather band with contrast stitching wraps twice around the wrist to secure this fresh gold timepiece. It’s as stylish as it is functional.

Free Gift with Purchase

The only thing a bargain fashionista loves more than a good deal is a free one. And, it is the season of the ‘free gift with purchase’ offer.

While I don’t usually find the majority of products included in free cosmetic gift sets useful, this Lancome gift is packed to perfection. I got it courtesy of my friend, Aj, who attended Fashion at the Park in Dallas last month. Not only does this set include a chic animal print case, but two eye shadow quads, a sensational effects lipcolor, double-action eye makeup remover, absolute replenishing cream, super-enhancing mascara base, and a custom volume mascara. Who wouldn’t want all of those products?

Do check out the Lancome free gift offers. At Lancome’s high prices, this is a budget friendly way to kick start your collection.
