GlitterBuzzStyle Swag Bag Giveaway Winner!

(Note: When trying to hide an individuals mailing address, simply use greeting card and/or nail salon certificate envelopes and lay such materials on the top of the box, just saying.)

I may not have won the New York Lottery's Take Five game, but I definitely had a "Little Bit of Luck" when it came to winning GlitterBuzzStyle's Swag Bag Giveaway! If you don't know who GlitterBuzzStyle is I suggest you check out Chastity's blog, after you read this post because, she writes about beauty, trends, and like you can see from my post, she hosts fabulous giveaways! (Just be sure, like any giveaway you enter, that you follow the guidelines.) In addition, she has a YouTube channel (User: GlitterBuzzInfo) and you can find her on Twitter @GlitterBuzzInfo. Anyway, keep reading if you want to find out what Chastity included in my Swag Bag!

After a not so fun afternoon at my Periodontist, (I had part one of my gum surgery and it looks like I have a wad of Silly Putty on the right side of my mouth) I was happy to see that my Swag Bag Giveaway package was waiting for me at my doorstep! As soon as I opened the box, I saw Chastity's note congratulating me on winning, which I thought was such a sweet touch. Although I didn't want to open the bag because she laid out the tissue and note card so nicely, I decided to dig in after about oh, 4.5 seconds to see what beauty goodies she sent to me!

Ta-da! As you can see from the image above, she included seven products as well as a few of her adorable bright pink business cards! I decided to showcase all seven products over three "rows" so you can get a better look at each product. Don't worry, you can thank me later!

Beauty for a Bargain at

As you can see from my last post, I am a HUGE fan of discounted makeup! My reasoning, is that if I save on makeup I have more money to purchase lattes and if I have more caffeine in me I'll be more alert to write additional posts! I mean really, it's a win-win for everyone here, sort of! Anyway, as you can see from the title this end of the year makeup sale is happening right now on If you haven't heard of, I'll excuse you in the meantime, but they have been seen on CBS News, InStyle, Self, Seventeen, and the list goes on and on! So, save your excuses unless you've been living under a beauty rock! What I love about this website is that they sell products from premium beauty brands for up to 85% off the retail price. However, if you think that percentage sounds fairly amazing, you'll be excited to learn that they are allowing customers to take an additional 50 (yes, 5-0) percent off there already discounted prices!

One quality beauty brand that is currently being sold on this website is gloMinerals, and although neither of these products shown are available on I just wanted to share with all of you how pigmented their products are! (I know I'm pale, but how pigmented is the gloEye shadow in Orchid?!) Also, 50% off a gloMinerals product on could be as low as a $3.50 before tax and shipping, which in Jenn dollar terms is basically the equivalent of a medium iced latte!

So, what are you still doing on my blog? Go to now and check out gloMinerals and products from the other fabulous beauty brands that they sell! Afterwards, don't forget to come back here and tell me what you ordered. I would love to hear what you think your best purchase was from this sale!

Note: You can still purchase gloMinerals gloEye shadow in Orchid from the company's website, for $18.00. Sadly, the gloLoose eye shadow in Cheerful is no longer available on the gloMinerals website.

FTC: I am in no way affiliated with or gloMinerals. The only product that I received for free, is the gloMinerals gloLoose eye shadow in Cheerful when gloMinerals was hosting a free eye shadow promotion on their Facebook page last year. I am not being compensated for this post, I am simply expressing my honest opinions on the products shown in the image in this post.

Simply Sweet Savings on Sale Items on!

Although I did want to "introduce" myself in my first post, I knew I had to get the word out about the extra 20% off you can save on current sale items on! As you can see from the image, all you have to do is use the promo code EXTRA at checkout from now until January 1st, 2011!

This lovely little flyer was at the very bottom of my package when I had purchased the DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum and the DiorShow Mascara / Black 090 using my $20 gift card on a $40 USD minimum purchase. However, just when I thought I needed a "Sephora break" (my wallets words, not mine) I think I have to reconsider "browsing" the sale section one more time! (We are talking Stila, Philosophy, Urban Decay, and so many more well-known brands!)

I would love to hear what sale items on interest you!

FTC: I am in no way affiliated with Sephora or, I simply wanted to share this offer with those who read my blog.
