Gilt Groupe is an online shopping website that offers members instant access to exclusive designer labels. The merchandise, such as clothing, handbags, home furnishings, jewelry, food, travel, etc., is offered at up to 60% off retail. In 2009, FastCompany called it the "darling of luxury-obsessed bargain hunters." and you can definitely find some great bargains too! They were even featured on ABC's early morning TV show, Good Morning America; now how cool is that!

Here are some of the requirements / details for accessing the website:
  • You must be a member to view the sales and to shop the website.
  • All sales will be available only on
  • There are no monthly fees, nor is there any cost for you to sign up and/or join either.
  • New sales typically start at Noon EST, but have been offered as late as 9PM EST as well.
  • The sales usually last either 24-36 hours or 36-48 hours.
  • You will receive a preview e-mail announcing the start of the day's sales shortly before the sale starts.
  • All orders are taken on a first come, first-served basis.
  • In the event a popular item becomes unavailable, sometimes you are given the option to waitlist the item.
If you are still unsure, that is okay, because I was at first too. Now I am constantly buying from their website. These are just some of the items that I have personally purchased from the Gilt Groupe website:

kate spade sunglasses

Brazil Flip Flops (2 Pack)

Feel free to ask me any questions about my experiences with them. Just leave a comment below and I will try to answer them as quickly as possible. Also, let me know if you have purchased from them before and how was your experience and what did you buy? Happy shopping! ♥♥

This year there was a change in the way that Sephora offered their 2011 Sephora Friends and Family 20% discount. I'm not going to go into the details again, but you can read my earlier post here to find out exactly what happened.

Anyway, on to the good Sephora haul!!!

Here are the items that I purchased in no particular order:
  • Nars Blush - Oasis
  • Nars Nail Polish - Bad Influence
  • Fusion Beauty IllumiFill Line Filling Luminizer
  • tokidoki compact mirror
  • Laura Mercier Luxury sized Hydrating Foundation Primer
  • Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel
  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick - Rose Quartz
  • Clinique Black Honey Shimmering tones powder
  • Nars Danmari All About Cheeks palette
In addition to the above items, I really wanted some of the Bobbi Brown eyeshadows but I decided to hold off on those for now and mainly focus on building up my blush collection.

Chanel, and even more Chanel. Yep, I picked up some goodies from my local Chanel counter and I'm so excited to share it with you all! Also, I will be posting swatches / reviews of all the items listed above so check back ♥♥
