Sephora Sale – Now’s the time to Stock up and SAVE

Sephora is having a BIG sale! TRUE FACT – Makeup rarely goes on sale at your local beauty counter. But, this week, NOW THRU MAY 6, at Sephora it does!  Yeah, you might get a freebie from your beauty counter to stack in the back of your drawer. Or, maybe a pretty bag that you end up giving to your kids or grandkids, but do you actually really use the stuff? We vote NO because 9 times out of 10, those are the bags we recommend a client donate when we do a closet cleanse. So now’s the time to take advantage of an actual sale at Sephora. And save on products you’ll use.

How it Works…

What’s eShakti?

Honestly, when eShakti first reached out to me I thought it had to be a scam, like one of those too good to be true things that can’t actually be legit. But thankfully, my skepticism was overpowered by my intrigue (and love of clothes) and I took the plunge and customized a dress for myself.

But first, let’s back up and discuss what eShakti is anyway… it’s a revolutionary concept in women’s clothing – they make clothes to a customers’ height, size and style preferences at an affordable price and deliver it in 13-17 days. It’s not bespoke or couture but it is customized by YOU, for YOU.

Exactly how is it customized?

What do I mean by customized? I mean you love a dress but it’s shown sleeveless and you don’t like your arms, or for modesty reasons you cover your arms, you can make that dress with sleeves, voila! You can make the dress, longer or shorter, and you can make the neck, v neck or boat neck or crew neck, whatever is the most flattering for you. eShakti can do that!

If you’re short-waisted or long waisted or your top and bottom are different sizes so finding dresses has been a lifelong challenge,  eShakti IS THE SITE FOR YOU!

AND, they size 00 – 36W so literally EVERYONE can find their fit!!

It’s good in theory AND in reality…

Rothy’s is for Everyone

Rothy’s is THE shoe! It has literally been on every single shopping list for every client we’ve seen the last month. If we’ve seen 20 clients it’s been on 20 lists. Okay, in all honesty, 22 lists because Rothy’s is on our own list, too. We’ve recommended them to teachers who stand all day long, to doctors, and lawyers, too. We’ve added them to lists for young moms on the run, and to our retired ladies lists. So when we say they are for everyone, we literally mean for everyone. Even Meghan Markle has traded in her heels for these bad boys. Oh, and they come in kid sizes (sneakers and loafers), so if you have a little one in your life or teeny tiny feet, big score for you. 

This shoe is The Shoe! 

So what in the hoo-ha are Rothy’s?
They’re the shoes you’ve probably seen on a Facebook ad and wondered about – and the good news is they’re worth trying!  Here’s why…

Loungewear and good ole’ pajamas.

What can we say, everyone needs a little loungewear in their life. Or, depending on the kind of homebody you are, maybe you need a lot. It’s been at the forefront of our minds lately too. If you follow Insta-stories, you’ve seen it’s the first thing Hallie does when she gets home from a long day. She throws off her street clothes and puts on the cozy loungewear.  And, Elana has been stuck at home for a few weeks with a bad back, so pajamas have become her new uniform.  And really, who doesn’t love a Sunday in cozy pajamas or loungewear! The days where you get to drink coffee in bed and might not brush your teeth until noon. Those are the days that call for the good stuff.

Scenarios for why having good loungewear on hand is a good idea…

-The Fed-Ex man shows up at your door in the morning. You don’t want to turn 50 shades of red out of embarrassment for what you might or might not have on.

-Your teenage children have friends sleep over. Wearing a decent pair of pajamas or loungewear won’t mortify you or them if asked to make pancakes at the last minute.

-Driving carpool in the morning. What if you get pulled over in ratty old jammies? Yikes! Wearing the good stuff is a much better idea than driving in those old holey t-shirts and bottoms.

-Unannounced visits from friends when you haven’t gotten totally dressed.

The Beauty Products We Swear By

I am not a total beauty product addict but I’m also not a wash my face with a bar of ivory soap and walk out the door girl either. Call me a moderate beauty junkie. I like products that offer good results and if I am being honest, I’m a little vain. Meaning, I like to look good and I put effort into trying to look my best. Not my best to one-up someone else but my best so I feel good about me. I like it when my skin is smooth and clear, I like it when the concealer I use covers my dark circles and I looooove it when my hair products stop my hair from frizzing out. Extra points if it’s quick, fairly priced and eco-friendly too.

Elana and I have been swapping beauty product reccos with each other, and with our clients for a while now – it’s one of the many fun parts of spending 3 hours in a closet together. And we thought it was time to get you guys in on the action too… so we’re sharing some of our most loved beauty and hair products with you and in return, we hope you’ll comment below and let us all know some of your favorites too.

Our If I Was Stranded On An Island I’d Take…

We used the “If I was stranded on a desert island” method to narrow down which products to recommend – but what surprised me…

THE COAT, Yes, it is THAT good!

There are coats and there is THE COAT! The coat is an internet sensation that has won over the hearts of fashionable women, living in cold climates everywhere. And even though the weather is so up and down (-10 one day and 50 degrees the next) This coat is worth it, especially on those super cold days. Think of it as a grown-up version of the beloved and very sought after Cabbage Patch Doll of the 1980’s – – –  everyone wants it. And I must say, for good reason. It even has it’s own Instagram page!!

I was not a super early adopter on this one, some people commented on my FB feed that they have had this coat for a year or more, smart ladies!! I’d seen it on other bloggers I follow and thought it was good looking. And at $130 worth a shot.  I ordered it in November and was so happy I did. Because when winter finally became winter, like serious, -10 degrees, I need a warm coat winter, I was all set!

Don’t cry me a river, I have other coats – long, short, puffer, fur (faux and regular). In fact, if you ask my husband, maybe too many… some are more fashionable and some more functional but as of now, none are more worn than my THE COAT.

THE COAT seemed to fill a void in my outerwear – here’s why:

Designer Sales are happening NOW – Here’s what to get where.

The holiday crazies are over, and the designer SALES are ON! Especially at upscale retailers with HUGE savings on designer pieces. We are talking up to 80% off in some cases!

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when shopping these designer sales.

1. With major savings, some items can only be returned for credit or are final sale. This is pretty typical when you’re getting something at 50% off or more. These are amazing pieces at amazing savings,  so it’s totally worth it if you know your size etc and/or if you’ll shop there in the future.

2. And sizes are limited and going fast. So yes, you might love something but so does someone else… it might be gone soon.
The bottom line is, we try to take care of you guys – our loyal readers. So, as we’ve been shopping these designer sales for clients, we’ve been shopping with you in mind too.

Here’s a roundup of what to get where.
