Actually, I'm still a bit comatose from yesterday's dinner. It was fabulous, so I ate much more than I usually do. Charlie and I have been having a snoozy morning.
I will be shopping online. I just discovered that Chantecaille is offering a free Tiger in the Wild Palette to anyone who spends $225 or over and uses the code GOWILD13. My holy grail palette - for free! I think I'll stop writing for a second and pop over and secure my order. The offer is only good today....there, done! I didn't want to take a chance on losing that offer. I can't tell you what yet, but Chantecaille is having an extravaganza deal on Cyber Monday.
There are actually more Black Friday online offers than I can use. They have been announced in e-mails and on Facebook and Twitter - all at once! At Slumberhouse, all bottles are 33% off today (or until sold out). Luckyscent has renamed today Puredistance Black Friday. All orders of the new and mysterious Puredistance Black with ship with two little samples. Use the code HOLIDAY13 for free shipping. Estée Lauder is offering a lovely Lush Lip Gloss set with six glosses for $19.50 until 1:00 pm EST. Giorgio Armani Beauty is offering 20% off any order of $75 or more, along with complimentary shipping. If you spend over $125, you will receive an additional five deluxe minis. Use the code FAMILY13. Kate Somerville is offering a dicount of 30% on all orders if you use the code HOLIDAY2013 (it's actually a Friends & Famil sale, as are others). This is a great deal, valid through December 2. NARS is offering its Friends & Family sale through the weekend. Use the code NARSFRIENDS online and in NARS boutiques to save 20%. I ran out of energy after typing up these deals, so I went looking for a summary. If you buy a leather atomizer at CREED, they will fill it with your choice of a select variety of fragrances. For four days only (and until stock lasts) purchase any atomizer and receive a complimentary fill of 1.7 fl. oz. of a beloved fragrance. Your choice of: Love in White, Acqua Fiorentina, Aventus, Millesime Imperial, Green Irish Tweed, or Silver Mountain Water. The Beauty Look Book compiled one I think you'll like.
It's time for the Friday Forum. I love this part of our week. What new products did you discover this week? Do you partake of any Black Friday deals? Did you find any beauties you couldn't resist? Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Do you have a question others might be able to answer? Want to talk about skin care? What's new in your life? Just use the comments. Don't be shy. Just make sure to ask any question you might have over the weekend. By early the next week, most (not all) readers will have moved on.
I hope you have a great weekend! I'll be back later with some beautiful new makeup.
Update: My resolve to stay home was cemented by NBC Washington. Outside Chicago, a police officer answering a shoplifting call at Kohl's shot the driver of a car who was dragging another police officer. A brawl at a Southern California Walmart left a police officer injured and two people in custody. In New Jersey, a man was pepper sprayed when he became belligerent over a television. A Las Vegas shopper was robbed and shot on his way home after buying a new television. A dispute right here in Virginia over a parking space outside Walmart ended with one man pulling a gun and another stabbing him in the arm (the only one I find mildly amusing because I do not favor the laws that allow morons to run around carrying guns). Want to go out "there"? Does Walmart draw crazies?
