Baublebar's Free Gifts - These gifts rock!

I have yet to jump on the Baublebar bandwagon. I love their e-mails and the jewelry is adorable but their website drives me crazy so I never end up actually purchasing. Sorry BB but it's the truth.

I may have to put my expectations aside for this awesome promo they have going on right now. God I love the holidays. I will buy something that I don't need or want just to get a free gift. I'm a sucker like that.

Anyway, onto the promo. Baublebar is offering a free gift with a $50 purchase and these "freebies" are good. If you are like me and have never actually fulfilled a purchase with them or you are a faithful member, you should place an order with them like now. Gifts with purchases include make-up like Dr. Jart BB Cream (gift set) and Tarte's lights, camera, lashes mascara. They also had Frends Earbuds worth $100 but they sold out like immediately.

It should be easy to find $50 worth of products on BaubleBar like this beautiful Crystal Bib necklace which is PERFECT for a holiday party!

Dr. Scholl's® Active Series® Compliments of Influenster

Influenster must know that I am getting old and therefore I start to ache after running, biking, hiking and definitely after a day on the mountain. They nicely sent me a pair of Dr. Scholl's Active Series inserts to review and I needed them. I actually just had some custom inserts made through my physical therapists that cost about 100 times as much as these and I can't even tell the difference except that the Dr. Scholl's may actually be more comfortable. I used these in my running shoes and I'm happy to report that my knees ached ALOT less upon hitting my goal. The inserts fit very well as if they were a custom job and I really having nothing negative to say about them. Great purchase for anyone experiencing aches and pains when walking or running or if you just need an extra pep in your step.

Influenster is a kick-ass program in case you don't know. They send you products to review and the goods are always fun, useful and stuff I would buy anyway so a big win in my book!

This Rocks! 21 Days of Beauty at Ulta

For, 21 Days of Beauty means a deep discount on a select product each day, giveaways and freebies!

Each day Ulta features a product that rocks, not some overstocked, underselling junk that isn't moving. For example, today the product is Lorac's Lips with Benefits (including the Tantalizer gloss) for $9 which is half off the normal price. I'll take it. The product of the day can be purchased both in-store and online and then there is an additional online only special. Again the online special is discounted around 50% with some exceptions like the Benefit Sexy Steal for only $18 this Saturday or on September 26th a Cargo Fall Eyeshadow Palette for $20 - a $140 value!

Ulta rocks in general with points earned with each purchase, freebies all the time and gifts with purchases that far outweigh the competition.

You should at least check out the Ulta calendar of events to just see what they have, I can almost guarantee that something in the line-up is a beauty staple you know and love or should get to know.
