SEPHORA VIB Sale

A couple weeks ago was the annual SEPHORA VIB Sale where VIB ROUGE and VIB members received a 15 percent off discount, and BI members received 10 percent off. Normally I don’t buy that much during this sale, I wait for the 20 percent off sale in November, but there were quite a few things I wanted to get and I had a bunch of store credit and gift cards waiting to get used. While many people aren’t happy with just 15 percent off, considering how much you spend to get to ROUGE Status, any discount is better than nothing to me. I went to SEPHORA three times during the sale to get these  ...

Sephora VIB Spring Bonus Sales Event

It’s spring in Chicago, the weather is warming up, the sun is finally out, and Sephora is getting ready to have their annual spring 15 percent off sale. Basically, things are good. This is the time of year when many people take advantage of the sale and purchase products that are little too expensive because the discount makes it a little more affordable. It’s also the time to stock up on favorites, and try one or two new products. You never know, you may find a new favorite! I typically don’t go too crazy during the spring sale. I usually wait until the 20 percent off sale in November  ...

‘Trading Spaces’ Making Its Return to TLC

One of my favorite shows to watch several years ago was ‘Trading Spaces’ on TLC. It was a designing show, which ran from 2000 to 2008, where neighbors trade homes for a couple of days and work with a popular designer to re-do a room in their house on a $1,000 budget. This made for amazing television because some designers didn’t care what the home owners want and just come up with a design they feel is fabulous. One of the most infamous episodes is the one where she hated the fireplace. According to reports on YAHOO, the announcement was made at TLC’s upfront presentation by the network  ...

Beauty & The Beast

“I want adventure in the great wide somewhere.” That’s probably one of the most famous quotes from Beauty & Beast and it’s always a line that always struck a chord with me. Since the movie first in 1991 (I was 9 years old), it’s been my all-time favorite Disney movie with Belle being one of my Disney princesses. I watched this movie so much on VHS that the tape got ruined and my parents had to get me a new copy! So it’s no surprise that when I heard this was going to be a live action version I was a little skeptical. No one wants to see their favorite movie as a kid ruined. Once  ...

Finesse Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Do you remember the first shampoo and conditioner that you picked out on your own? I do. I was browsing through the isle at Walgreen’s and I was finally old enough to choose what I wanted to use. Before this my mom was buying and having me use Suave. I recognized the bottles of Finesse from a magazine geared towards teenagers that I recently browsed through, I was 10. I immediately grabbed them and put them in my mom’s cart. It seems silly now, but at that time it was exciting to be able to choose what products I was going to use on my hair and body. I kept thinking I was finally an  ...

Learning the Tricks of Highlighting at Sephora

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never been a big fan of highlighting. It’s not that I don’t like the look of it, it’ just that my skin can get a little too oily. Oily skin plus highlighters don’t always equal a good for me. However, after attending the Highlighting class at Sephora on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, I can create the perfect highlight without making my skin look extra oily. In fact, my skin looked amazing! During the class we learned about three different highlighting techniques from the hilarious and amazingly talented PRO Artist Jeffrey English! He had everyone laughing  ...
