November 17, 2010 Friends and Family Sale

I am a serious procrastinator.  Most (okay, all) of my Christmas shopping is done between the 20th and 24th of December.  By the time I get to the mall, the items I want are usually sold out.  

If you should ever find yourself in this situation, do not fret.  Gas stations offer a plethora of potential gifts.  Who wouldn't light up like a Christmas tree at the sight of Cheetos and an air freshener?  Ha ha!


This year, I'd like to gift my loved ones with more than my usual Slim Jims and  Slurpees.  (I'm kidding!)  There are so many great sales happening right now! is currently hosting a great Friends and Family Sale.  They sell a wide variety of skin care products from brands such as: La Roche-Posay, Boscia, Clairsonic, and more!

(Dear The Beauty Blog Trolls: Yes, I am aware that my heart and arrow do not match.)

I would love to write more, but I need to save my energy.  Tomorrow is my adorable hubby's 29th, and I am ill.

Fortunately, I am not as ill as T-Bone.



I hope you're all doing well.  What are your current must-haves?

November 8, 2010 Giveaway: My Best Yet! [CLOSED]

Spending an afternoon perusing counters neatly lined with vibrantly colored make-up, trying on rich body creams and perfume, and browsing through beautiful products to accent your home sounds like time well spent to this beauty blogger.  I am confident that most of you will agree, seeing that you're beauty-holics as well.

However, as enticing as an excursion like this sounds, I guarantee four hours at the mall with yours truly would leave you questioning our friendship.  Why?  Because I am the most indecisive shopper ever.  The other day, my adorable hubby and I swung by Target.  After a stress filled hour in the hair care section, I finally selected a set of hot rollers I deemed worthy of my $30.00.  As we headed towards the door, red and white bags in hand, I hesitated.

Me:  "Can we swing by customer service?"

Husband:  "Why?"

Me:  "I want to take my hot rollers back."

Mind you, we had just spent the previous hour at Ulta, pricing and comparing roller sets.  I'm sure you can imagine the look on my hubby's face.  XD

The generous folks at have kindly offered to send one of my lovely followers a $50.00 gift card.  The really great thing about their website is that they offer only the crème de la crème of beauty products, fragrances, goodies for your home.  They even have a section for the man in your life!  Shopping on has been a dream come true for my husband and me.  While I hem and haw over what to buy, he plays Madden.  It works well.  ;)

Each of these items are under $50.00 -- and definitely on my wish list!

Stila Cosmetics Holiday Lip Glaze Collection 2010

This set is the perfect gift for the gloss lover in your life! 

Lippmann Collection Nail Lacquer - Ruby Red Slippers

I am drawn to vampy nail polish, and the infamous Ruby Red Slippers is no exception!

Voluspa Limited Edition Mini Tin - Truffle White Cocoa

This tin would look - and smell - lovely on a bathroom counter top!

Take a peek at their site.  I guarantee you'll find more than a few things to swoon over.  If for some crazy reason you do not, don't fret!  The winner's gift card may also be used on Apothica's sister sites: and
