Today is the 5th of December.
20 days left till Christmas day!
Am I excited?
Where am I going shopping for presents?
Well my first call of duty was Boots & Body Shop & Lush!
I get soo excited at the thoughts of Christmas shopping in those shops! Why? Because I get carried away! Friday the 25th of November I went in to The Body Shop on Henry Street and took full advantage of their 30% off
All thanks to reading a blog post by cornflakegirlsmusings I made sure I was near a Body Shop. If I wasn't going to go to town I would have to have made my way to Swords.
Lush is really good for pre-made up packages for Christmas. They are already wrapped (always in nice paper) and they show what's inside the present. (But I like to cut that off and keep it as a surprise for who ever receives it.)
But online alternative for shopping for cosmetics have also enticed me to look at some items online.
Why do I like these sites? Well number 1, they both accept laser card. Number 2, they have fabulous products.
- Sigma brush sets
- Sleek palettes
- Handmade Soap Company
- It even has a little Christmas tab in the top right hand corner
- It has a tab "For Him" (left hand side)
- Too faced
- Sleek products (lashes, palettes, liners, lip sticks, pencils, glosses, lip tars)
- Few Urban Decay products
- EOS lip balm (egg shaped)
- It also has a little Christmas tab
- Ardell lashes
- Yankee Candles
- High-end Skin products
- Has a "men" tab left hand side.
- GHD's and GHD products (inculding hair dryer)
- Macadamia Oil
Another website (non beauty related) I had a look at was http://hairybaby.com/ . I bought a few things from this website, slightly expensive? Yes. But to know that these organic clothing products are not being made in sweat shops is a good thing. The "Hairy Baby" company is located in Cork. It takes 7 working days to process. (I purchased products on the 28th of November so a week ago today.
I'm looking forward to getting my products (especially my "dia duit" tee for myself, a little bit of Christmas shopping for myself!
