BeautyHabit.com Clearance Sale + Free Shipping Code!

Thursday, January 8th, 2009 | Fragrance, Free Stuff, Makeup, Sales, Skincare, Stores | Comments Off on BeautyHabit.com Clearance Sale + Free Shipping Code!

BeautyHabit.com just announced their clearance sale and also another free shipping code for orders over $40. Trust me, this is a good thing! BeautyHabit.com has a great selection of higher-end candles and beauty products, and rarely offers discount codes (free shipping usually starts at orders of $100). The sale includes products by Sundari, The Art of Shaving, Comptoir Sud Pacifique, Lollia, and more. Note: Sales of clearance items are final, so do choose wisely!

BeautyHabit.com Free Shipping Code: FRESHSTART (for orders of $40 or more)

When: January 8-16, 2009

Meilily recommends checking out the BURN candles on clearance – These candles (developed by the founder of Studio at Fred Segal) are supposed to be fantastic!

*Btw, don’t forget the free shipping / free samples BeautyHabit code I posted about previously for orders of only $35 or more!

Meilily Featured Shop: The Perfumed Court

Friday, December 12th, 2008 | Featured Shops, Fragrance, Stores | 2 Comments

Meilily Featured Shop: The Perfumed Court

Meilily Featured Shop: The Perfumed Court

Meilily Featured Shop:  The Perfumed Court

If you are familiar with the power that scents have to transform a mood, lift the spirits, or brighten a day, then you will understand my latest obsession with perfumes and fragrances.  It is not an obsession with just any and all fragrances, but an obsession with finding just the right fragrance to trigger that “ahhhh” response.

Here is where a particular online shop comes in handy:  The Perfumed Court is an online fragrance shop that really helps me pursue my fragrance search (a.k.a. obsession) without breaking the bank.  The Perfumed Court features a mind-blowing array of international fragrances, including niche fragrances that are harder to find and also fragrances that are not available in the United States.  The special part about The Perfumed Court is that they sell decants, taking original fragrances and carefully transferring them into smaller containers for resale.

Since I have always had a hard time justifying shelling out a bunch of money for a full-size bottle of perfume that I would only wear a few times, buying perfume had become for me simply impractical until recently.  After finding and trying fragrance decants from The Perfumed Court, I have become a decant convert.  Now, I will never buy a regular size bottle of fragrance again, unless it is affordable and unless I also love it.

Special Sale at Bliss!

Sunday, November 16th, 2008 | Fragrance, Lingerie, Makeup, Sales, Skincare, Stores | 3 Comments

Meilily Sale Alert:  Bliss

Meilily Sale Alert: Bliss

Just wanted to let you know about a very special Bliss sale going on at blissworld.com:

The Bliss Employee Sale is going on right now for a limited time, and there have been a bunch of really nice, high-end cosmetics, skincare, and general beauty products on sale at huge discounts (up to 70% off).  Products have been selling out rather quickly during this sale, but there have been great deals on products ranging from Laura Mercier and Sue Devitt makeup to MBT shoes and Wolford lingerie.  Recently, Bliss even added more products to their Employee Sale online.

This is a great time to buy high-end products you normally covet but cannot afford.  [Just remember, the Bliss return policy does not seem to allow returns on sale items.]
