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.

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
Thursday, September 16th, 2010 | Fashion, Free Stuff, Photos, Product Launches | 2 CommentsMeilily Hot Happenings & Photos: Levi’s Curve ID Jeans Launch in SF with Free Jeans!
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)

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!

Meilily Free Stuff Alert!
Get a Free 3-piece KMS Haircare Set!
Did you spot the special Ulta coupon page in the latest InStyle Makeover issue? It’s easy to miss, but inside the current issue of InStyle Makeover, which features Vanessa Hudgens on the cover, there is a somewhat hidden special offer from Ulta for a free deluxe trial set of three KMS California hair products!
How to Get a Free KMS California Hair Product Set at Ulta:
This Ulta KMS offer does not mention a minimum purchase requirement nor does it require you to purchase any KMS products! How cool is that?! Oddly, the KMS offer looks just like any of the other ULTA ads peppering the pages of this issue of InStyle Makeover.
Once you find it, simply tear out and bring the KMS offer page from the InStyle Makeover issue to an Ulta store, and get a generous KMS hair product set free through October!

Summer won’t be over for a while yet, so if you want to tighten up your swimsuit/short-skirt body, here’s a product for you!
Use it wherever you choose! The slighty minty cooling sensation makes it feel like something’s working, but isn’t strong enough to feel burning or distracting. Whewh!
I was surprised to see toning results after my first use, but I suppose it could have just been my imagination. Either way, I think this stuff works, so that’s pretty good for skeptical me! YMMV, of course, but I like using Bliss Love Handler for smoother tighter skin.
Don’t forget this savings code: Get 20% off fuzz fighting and body toning bestsellers at blissworld.com. Enter code HAIRY! Offer ends 8.9.09.
Or, better yet, you can browse the wide selection of fitness shoes at Blissworld.com, and pick out a pair of raved-about Swiss MBT shoes on sale for only $149… and get a Free full size Love Handler with your order! Get a FREE love handler with a $100 purchase at blissworld.com. Enter code FREELUV. Offer ends 8.9.09.
Meilily loves… Bliss Love Handler!
P.S. Meilily’s Product Tip: When you use Love Handler, you’ll probably want to wash your hands after applying it to your body so you don’t get any toning minty-ness in your eyes! Just a thought!
