As one of their limited time offers, Sephora.com has been giving away gift with purchase bags with $25 orders, including a great little Hello Kitty Cosmetics Bag full of nice samples. From among three Sephora gift bag options, this clear Hello Kitty bag was my pick, because it’s Hello Kitty done right (and makes a great travel bag).
Unlike the traditional uber-pink Hello Kitty products that we girls used to adore as pre-adolescents, this Hello Kitty Sephora Originals bag seems designed for Hello Kitty girls who have grown up (and gotten jobs). Though this clear Hello Kitty cosmetics bag has a few touches of pale pink, it mostly features a subtle silver Hello Kitty print that will make you look twice.

When I came across this special offer where you buy Dr. Howard Murad’s new book, The Water Secret, and then get up to $200 in Murad skincare products in the mail, I was honestly pretty skeptical. Given that the Murad Sleep Reform Serum I was eying cost $97, this offer just sounded too good to be true.
Since I heard about this offer through trusted friends at The Beauty Grapevine (formerly eMakeMeUp Grapevine), I went for it! I bought a copy of The Water Secret (about $10.70 on Amazon), emailed my receipt to Murad by November 2, and then held my breath and waited.
Here is what I got in my Water Secret Gift Bag… › Continue reading

During my birthday month, Anthroplogie personally sent me a lovely birthday card and birthday gift. So thoughtful of them to remember my birthday! I know how busy they must be coming up with the cutest clothing every season, but they somehow managed to remember!
Perhaps it helped that I am an Anthropologie “member.” I originally signed up because it’s free and I like to shop there – plus they give you a membership card, the Anthro Card, in a really cute fabric drawstring bag. Since then, I have discovered some nice perks to being an Anthro account holder, including free shipping and now a surprise birthday gift!
What Anthropologie Got Me for My Birthday
Inside a lovely envelope of thick paper, I found a white card with a cupcake motif attached to a cute candle necklace › Continue reading

OK, what could be better than free jeans?! How about free Levi’s Curve ID Jeans, a new product from Levi’s specifically designed to fit more than just one type (er shape) of woman.
I recently attended a Levi’s Curve ID launch event in San Francisco at the Union Square Levi’s shop. I got to meet You Nguyen, SVP of Levi’s Women’s Merchandising and Design, who gave a demo that illustrated precisely why women traditionally have such a hard time finding jeans that fit based on size (but not shape). I even got to to try free Curve ID jeans!
*Friday, Sept. 17, 2010 Get a free pair of Levi’s Curve ID jeans at the San Francisco Levi’s store at 300 Post St. Just bring in an old pair of jeans to get free Curve ID jeans! First come first serve!
Photos and Details: How the New Curve ID Jeans Fit Different Women…
Levi’s developed Curve ID jeans after researching body shape variations in women and surveying real women. The new jeans are sized not just by waist size but by the ratio or difference between a woman’s natural waist, upper hip, and butt measurements- her real shape!
The Three Levi’s Curve ID (Lower) Body Shape Types:
- Slight Curve (straighter from waist to butt)
- Demi Curve (average proportion between waist and butt)
- Bold Curve (more difference or curve between waist and butt)
Photos from Meilily: Size 27 Models Wearing Different Curve ID Skinny Jeans
Models wearing, from left to right: Slight Curve, Demi Curve, Bold Curve.
Front view: Size 27 models, each with a different hip shape…
Side view: Size 27 models, each with a different derriere shape…… wow!
