Want a $25.00 gift card from Apothica.com? Keep reading! Giveaway right here, right now!

Hello Lovely Readers of mine!

Today I have an exciting announcement to share with you all. I'm not sure if you all have heard about Apothica.com, but this website is extremely amazing. It carries so many varying brands of cosmetics, skin care, fragrance, bath & body, hair care, home & laundry items & even men's items! This site offers name brand products & offers free shipping when you spend over $49.00. Another thing that is convenient about the site is that they are now accepting paypal payments, offer a 60-day "no questions asked" return & they also ship internationally!!

So, I was skimming the site and found the lip liner that I've been loving which is Shiseido's RS303 lip pencil
Shiseido Smoothing Lip Pencil Rs303  This lipliner is absolutely GORGEOUS!! I received a sample size of this before and finally began using it a couple of weeks ago. Let me tell you, it is such a beautiful color that I was extremely surprised by! I pair it with a light nude gloss and wow, it's just the perfect combination! I'm so stoked that they have this on the website because I haven't had the time to go to the store and hunt for it, you know what I mean? Sometimes online shopping is just more convenient especially for people with a busy lifestyle. I'm definitely gonna have to place an order for this.

Shiseido is not the only brand they carry, they carry other brands like YSL, Vincent Longo, Cargo, La Mer, Bobbi Brown, Dr. Brandt, etc., there are just so many selections to choose from!

So......................Apothica.com has allowed me to host a giveaway here on my blog which will allow me to select a winner to receive a $25.00 gift card!! YAY!! Who doesn't love a gift card and a chance at winning?? This giveaway will be closed on 12/3/10 at 10:00pm PCT. Once I select a winner, I will forward the winner's information to Apothica.com with their contact information so that Apothica can reach out to them & verify all information is correct. After verification, Apothica will email the winner a code for the gift card to be used at either: SkinCareRx.com, Apothica.com, and SkinBotanica.com.

Participants will also need to save SkinCareRx as a contact in their email

box so that it doesn't go to the Spam/Junk Mail folder.

Howdy folks! Hope everyone has been well! Happy Belated Halloweenie to everyone! My halloween wasn't too pleasant. I spent $87.00 on tickets to a massive halloween party in the city at a club which was 5 stories. I was so eager to attend and especially more so because of the company that I was going to be with. Up until approximately 4 hours before the event kicked off, I began not feeling so well :( runny nose, sneezing, and watery eyes! I think I was allergic to my friend's room-mates cats (she has two of them). I took two benadryls in an attempt to alleviate the reaction but it didn't help & it only made things worse because I was extremely sleepy from the medicine. I fell asleep to the club, ALMOST (so close) to falling asleep in the club, and I fell asleep coming home from the club. What a night I tell ya! I did see some really amazing and creative costumes though! What was I by the way? I was a fairy. And by fairy, I don't mean the promiscuous kind in any way. If anything, let's just say that I was completely and entirely overdressed compared to pretty much everyone else in the club. I didn't buy a costume persay, I just wore a dress I had with some fairy wings and accessories. I hope everyone had a great halloween!

I REALLY wanted the MAC Venomous Villains Bite of an apple blush but unfortunately did not make it quick enough to the MAC counter to grab one. I know this was a limited time collection but does anyone know if MAC continues to sell limited time products for a certain amount of time after a new collection has already been released? I REALLY want this blush :(

Fiance and I are in the midst of moving so hopefully once we do, I will have more time to blog and film videos. For space purposes and lighting reasons, I can't update as much and often as I'd like right now. Plus, my schedule at work has been changing and I haven't been adjusting as gracefully as I would have liked.

If anyone is interested in this DIY body harness that you see in the photos above, please leave a comment and I will create a video on how you can make one for yourself!
It's so super easy, quick, and simple! All you need is the supplies :)

Thanks for reading :)

You all are the **BEST**!!
