Holiday Deals & Steals 2013!

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!!  Before I get into the good stuff, I want to say how thankful I am for each and every one of you who support me and encourage me with your kind comments each day.

Now we all know that this holiday is synonymous with crazy deals and insane shoppers, so I wanted to share a few of the promotions that are going on this Black Friday & Cyber Monday.  If you’re anything like me, you’ll be giving the malls and shops a wide birth tomorrow, but instead choosing to do your holiday shopping hidden safely behind a computer.  Under a fuzzy blanket.  By the fire.

On to the deals & steals!  I’ve also been so kind as to give you a few of my suggestions where appropriate. Enjoy! 🙂

Sigma Beauty

If you’ve watched any of my tutorials, then you’ve seen me use my beloved Sigma brushes.  I’ve even done a whole video for you on my favorites and essentials for a brush kit.  You can watch that HERE, and then get your butt over to Sigma’s website to pick up a few of your own.

Sigma Black Friday

They are running a two day Black Friday special for free shipping, which is pretty sweet deal because while their brush prices are quite good, the shipping costs can be a little painful.  Just be sure to type in code BF2013 at checkout!

Sigma Cyber Monday

On Cyber Monday, they are offering 20% off on select items which I’ve got listed down below.  My personal favorites will be starred!  Don’t forget to enter code CM2013 at checkout.

The Balm

Well known for their cheeky packaging, amazing blushes, and their phenomenal highlighter, The Balm is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  They’re having a great site wide sale of 40% on Monday, so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity!

The Balm Cyber Monday

Here are just a few of my favorites that would make amazing stocking stuffers!

Rent the Runway

We’ve all got holiday events to attend and New Year’s Eve parties to plan, so Rent the Runway is a great place to pick up a stunning outfit for just such occasions.  This brilliant online closet filled with designer goods is available for rent at great prices.  And this Black Friday, the prices get even better since they’re offering 20% off everything!

RTR Black Friday

Have a look at a dress that I rented last year for the Houston Astros Women’s Organization Gala in this post HERE!


Ebates is the way to shop!!! If you’re unfamiliar with this site, it’s basically a virtual mall where you can shop all of your favorite stores (plus many more) and earn cash back.  They always have all of the latest coupon codes for you, and you can set up a list of your favorite stores to make online shopping super easy.  You just click on a store, and it will direct you to their website, but you’re getting cash back for doing it through Ebates!  It’s a sweet deal, so be sure to sign up HERE and start saving.  They are offering up to 10% cash back for the holidays, so jump on this bandwagon before you do any more holiday shopping.


I hope y’all have found this post helpful, so happy shopping!  And more importantly, Happy Thanksgiving!

Best & Thanksgiving Blessings,

    I am LOVING your YouTube and blog! What a treat it’s been watching your videos and learning more about keeping myself lookin purty 😉 with fiive little ones in tow! I have a question if you had to pick one neutral palette which would you pick? I’m blond with hazel eyes and warm yellow undertones. I’m a simpleton about this stuff BC of lack of confidence in my application and of course TIME! Thanks 🙂

      Yay that makes me so so happy! I’m so happy I can be a help to you. Hmmmm I would pick the original Naked because it’s full of warm undertoned shadows, which is why I tend to favor it over Naked2. However, you might really like the Naked3, so swatch it once it’s out in stores on the 11th to see which one you like better! Let me know which one you pick! xo
