6 Great Cyber Monday Deals

 

I love a good bargain, and seeing the letters S. A. L. E. hanging in store windows makes my blood rush. Still, I’ve never been the type to get out of bed before dawn and battle the notoriously aggressive Black Friday crowds. Instead I spend Thanksgiving weekend plotting a Cyber Monday offense attack. As more online boutiques begin to throw their “free shipping” hats in the ring, the deals continue to get better. Below are six of the best internet bargains a girl can find.

1.  Amazon.com

This online emporium has so many incredible deals going on right now I can’t even list them all. Instead, I suggest you double-check your gift list and head straight to their site.

2. Jewelista.com

The cyber destination “where fashion discovers jewelry” is offering 20% off anything on the site between 11am and 3pm EST. Oh yeah, and they’re throwing in free shipping.

3. Gilt.com

The mega discount site will be launching brand new sales every three hours in all of their stores between noon and 9pm EST—plus their offering doorbusters for at least 70% off each round as well. If you’re not a member, perhaps you should look in to it.

4. Joesjeans.com

Is there anything better then a brand new pair of blue jeans? The denim purveyors are offering 30% off their entire site.

5. Aeropostale.com

With graphic Ts starting at $4 and outerwear at $15, you can afford to stock up for every kind of winter weather scenario possible.

Jen’s Pick: The Kind Life

Sure, Alicia Silverstone broke into the Hollywood A-list playing a ditzy, spoiled teen in 1995’s box office hit Clueless, but her most important role has been as an advocate for environment protection and healthy living.

And while the 2009 release of  her book The Kind Diet ultimately cemented Alicia’s leadership  in both the healthy living and animal cruelty movements, nothing speaks to her commitment to these causes more than her amazing blog called The Kind Life. The blog offers tips and advice on ways to live greener, healthier and cruelty-free lives.

I personally love The Kind Life. It has an amazing following with a ton of interaction. Alicia does a lot of research on the topics she discusses and posts photos featuring people’s success stories in changing their lives and living green. After looking over the blog, I went straight to Amazon and purchased her book. As you know, green living is very important to me and I jump at any opportunity to incorporate new tips or advice into my daily life.

This is my shout out to Alicia Silverstone, a true Green Queen!

How are you fighting to care for our Earth and help diminish your carbon footprint?

 

 

 

Amazonian White Clay—What is it?

As many of you know, tarte is a natural brand that formulates with high-performance natural ™ ingredients. That being said I wanted to provide some more insight on what we mean when we talk about these HPN ingredients. Maureen Kelly (the Creator & CEO) scours the earth for nature’s secrets that will clinically correct your skin (whether it’s wrinkles, fine lines or moisture issues) while helping you look your best! Our newest products contain clay, but not just any clay: Amazonian White Clay! You’re probably wondering: what the heck is that and why should I care?

Amazonian white clay is nature’s most perfect ingredient. It works for ALL skin types. Yes, I said ALL—I know, we didn’t think it existed either! So, today I wanted to share all the deets on what exactly it is/does and why it must be the newest edition to your makeup bag.

While recently vacationing in Brazil (the tarte team is going back June 20!!), Maureen noticed that women of all ages had such flawless skin and healthy complexions. She was on a mission to determine their beauty secret. Enter nature’s most perfect ingredient: Amazonian clay.

A quick eco-history lesson: The Amazon River spans 4,000 miles in length, and as it flows it collects nutrient dense fruit and plant matter. At the most downstream region nutrients are at its highest concentration. At this location tarte extracts the purest clay sediments; and along the River’s edge, we refine the raw clay on-site while in its most active state. By using the sun’s natural heat we solidify the clay into blocks to sustain and protect the nutrient concentration. The clay is then shaved down into a finely-milled powder that can be carefully added to our high-performance natural™ formulas to gently balance and correct any skin concerns while simultaneously stimulating circulation.

So how does this multitasking and total skin balancing clay work for everyone?

  • Oily skin: removes surface oil to mattify skin
  • Dry skin: hydrates skin reducing the appearance of dryness and flakiness
  • For problem/redness/acne skin: helps correct and balance
  • Dull skin: improves the appearance of skin clarity and texture
  • All skin: Gives skin an overall smooth and even appearance

Well, this was a mouthful but it’s so important to know what your makeup is doing for you. Check out our new for summer 2010 emphasEYES™ clay shadow/liners & get your daily dose of white clay. A bunch of additional clay-packed tarte goodies can be found on our QVC.com page.

Sambazon’s Jungle Love Party

On Tuesday night the tartelettes headed downtown to Sushi Samba to join our charity partners for the launch of Samabazon’s new Amazon Energy drink Jungle Love. This acai berry rich drink was delish! We also had such a blast listening to the beats of DJ Duda and watching the Brazilian sisters dance it up!

p.s. For tarte 21+ customers ONLY visit Veev.com to learn about some tasty acai cocktails!
