Small Business Saturday 2017

Good morning everyone! Just in case anyone has money left over after Black Friday, I wanted to give a shout out to some of my favorite small businesses for Small Business Saturday! Most of these are run by ladies who are also my friends! I see how hard they work and I am just so proud of them, so I have to support them however I can!

ADDERALL AND COMPLIMENTS

Loving my #crystal kit from @annabelledesisto @adderall_and_compliments! The pink 💖 shaped one is #RoseQuartz and this is from the website 💖Rose Quartz-It is known as the ‘love stone’ as the message it emits is the strong vibration of unconditional love, joy, warmth and healing. It has a powerful effect to aid your emotional healing & helps heal relationship problems.Rose Quartz is also a stone whose powerful love will resonate to the whole body and heal all chakras. Rose Quartz comforts and heals any wounds the heart has suffered, penetrating the inner chambers of the Heart Chakra where emotional experiences are recorded and stored. It dissolves the sorrows, worries, fears and resentments suppressing the heart’s ability to give and receive love, and replaces it with healing, comfort and inner nourishment.

One of my best friends Annabelle (she was actually the one that got me to move to LA!) has a podcast and online store called Adderall and Compliments. At the shop Annabelle sells crystal kits for people new to crystals, healing kits, and manifestation kits, as well as crystal towers, kick ass kitten keychains, and kitten necklaces (her listeners are called kittens!) She runs this entire business out of her apartment from the ordering and inventory to the packaging and shipping and she has worked her butt off this year! Be sure to check her out especially since her whole site is on sale until Monday! Here’s a picture of me wearing one of the crystal dagger necklaces: Continue reading Small Business Saturday 2017

Sephora VIB Sale Spring 2017 – How It Works, Post Round-Up, and Ebates

It’s almost Sephora VIB Sale time!!! I’d love it if you used this link or click on the banner below to shop the Sephora VIB sale and help support Blushing in Hollywood:

Ok time for a refresher- Sephora’s loyalty program has 3 different levels or tiers. There’s a few things that are true for all 3 tiers:

    • ANYONE can participate in the sale and use the discount code. All you have to do is sign up for free to be a Beauty Insider (see below).
    • You can use the discount online or in store including Sephora in JCPenney locations.
    • You can use the discount as many times as you want during the days it is available. NO LIMIT! You can do both in store and online purchases if you so please 🙂
    • It is valid on EVERY brand in the store (!!) The discount is on your entire purchase.
    • The discount is not applicable to gift cards, Sephora Play! Boxes, or Sephora Flash Shipping ($10/year for free 2-day shipping on every order). Anyone can purchase Flash Shipping for a year and if you are VIB Rouge it’s free/included.

    Sephora Beauty Insider – 4/20/17-4/23/17; 10% Discount

    sephora-beauty-insider

    The base level is Beauty Insider. Anyone can be a Sephora Beauty Insider it’s free to sign up and there’s no minimum purchase. Once you sign up online or in store you’re eligible to get a free birthday gift during your birthday month (this year you can get a Tarte blush and lip gloss or 2 Caudalie skin care deluxe samples), you can get free beauty classes, and you are able to use the discounts during the Sephora VIB sales. Sephora has it’s biggest sale of the year in November where you will receive 15% off typically if you are a Beauty Insider (and 20% off for VIB and VIB Rouge). The “smaller” sale is in the Spring typically in April and you get 10% off if you are a Beauty Insider from Thursday 4/20/17 through Sunday 4/23/17 both online and in store. The code is BISPRING and if you do not receive the mailer, you can just tell the cashier you want to use the discount.

    Cynthia Bailey’s Beauty Secrets

    Ms. Cynthia Bailey the supermodel entrepreneur on Real Housewives of Atlanta just turned 50. Fifty years old ladies and gentleman! She looks absolutely incredible so I just HAD to do some research and find out what her beauty secrets are. I’ve even seen Cynthia in passing at the Grove in Los Angeles and she was absolutely stunning just like a supermodel should be.

    “The thing that modeling has taught me about beauty is that it’s really individual. I work with so many different types of beauties, as a model. It’s not so much traditional. It’s about working with what you have and owning it. Confidence is so much of a part of being beautiful. I’ve met so many women who weren’t model-beautiful. Their confidence and everything about them is so beautiful to me.” – Cynthia Bailey (Source)

    Cynthia Bailey’s Skin Care

    Vaseline: “Don’t rule out Vaseline,” she advises. It’s the pristine-skinned model’s go-to moisturizer in a pinch. Elbows, knees, lip balm — she even carries a little pot of it in her purse everywhere she goes. (Source) Continue reading Cynthia Bailey’s Beauty Secrets

    Kyle Richards’ Beauty Secrets

    Since I’ve already done Lisa Vanderpump (twice for LVP actually) and Erika Jayne aka Erika Girardi I figured the next Real Housewife of Beverly Hills whose beauty secrets we all want to know is obviously Kyle Richards aka Kyle Richards Umansky. Again I have scoured the internet for any and all interviews with Kyle about her fave beauty products, makeup, hair care, skin care, etc. and have put them all together for your enjoyment here!

    Holiday Gift Ideas for Her 2016

    I recently attended a Nordstrom Morning Beauty Event and they had TONS of awesome gift ideas I had to share! If you didn’t know, Nordstrom regularly holds great (free!) beauty events in store where you usually get some really great samples and freebies! They had tons of raffles at mine and I even won a Nest home diffuser! You can see if your store is having any Nordstrom events here. The Nordstrom at the Grove is even having Mr. Francois Nars in store on December 10th from 2-4pm for a book signing.

    Also don’t forget to use Ebates because Nordstrom currently has 6% cash back.

    My top pick for a gift is either of these: Continue reading Holiday Gift Ideas for Her 2016

    Microblading Eyebrows

    At this point I think we all know that having good eyebrows is one of the best things you can do for your overall look. Having groomed, filled in eyebrows can help make you look more polished, younger, and can really frame and transform your face. Because of this need for great brows microblading has emerged as a semi-permanent solution to help you say “I woke up like this.” Tattooed eyebrows used to look like a faded sharpie, but we’ve come a long way since then with microblading looking much more natural.

    I have been absolutely loving my brows now that I’m getting them threaded ($7) and tinted ($20) at Aruna’s Threading Salon in Hollywood, but I have to go back every 2-3 weeks and the tint lasts maybe 1-2 weeks so microblading may be in my future…

    What is Microblading?
