Shabby Apple $50.00 Gift Certificate
Can you say modest AND stylish in one sentence? As a woman who likes to leave a little to the imagination, I find it nearly impossible to find clothing that covers in all the right places, flatters and looks original. Shabby Apple manages to accomplish all of these things–for real. ”Immodesty disempowers women,” says founder, LeSueur. I couldn’t agree more. Long gone are the days of boxy jumpers and frumpy dresses; Shabby Apple is on it with a custom tool to help you find the most flattering fit and style for your body type. Love it! While you’re at it, check out their newest line for the holidays. It is simply gorgeous!
Perhaps the best part about this women owned business, is that a percentage from each Shabby Apple purchase goes to charity. After a long partnership with Unitus, which provides microcredit loans to women in India, they now support Reach the Children, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the well-being of underprivileged children.
Platinum Skin Care Glycolic Peel 30 or 50% Kit (worth $43.95)
One of my main skincare indulgences this year is an at-home Glycolic Peel by Platinum Skin Care. As an esthetician by trade, I believe that Retin-a, Obagi, and regular glycolic peels (and perhaps a little Botox) are the secret to younger looking skin. This is one of those products that yields immediate results you can see and feel AND it is far less expensive than a trip to the dermatologist! One glycolic peel at my doctor’s office is $75.00 alone.
For those of you unfamiliar with chemical peels, they are great for a number of skin concerns, including fine lines, acne, scars, freckling, age spots, unevenness and dullness. Please read all the facts and contraindications here before using this product.
This kit allows you to do it several times, in the comfort of your own home, and at a fraction of the cost. Just be sure that you are a good candidate prior to use and follow the directions EXACTLY.
Bobbi Brown Lip-color in “Brown” (worth $23.00)
Bobbi Brown is one of the few cosmetic lines out there that hits the mark with every product. I began using Bobbi Brown Cosmetics at the age of 20 and have never looked back. I even worked as a freelance makeup artist and counter manager for Bobbi Brown while attending college, always selling each and every product I put on the clients face-because it sold itself. This line is a rarity in that it truly polishes and improves everyone who wears it.
While I could write an entire post on each of her products, her lip-color is the focus of my giveaway–since it was the first product made for the public. ”Brown” was the color–to be exact. Created in 1988, “Brown” is still the number one seller and now it can be yours. It’s hydrating, pretty, and there are numerous neutral shades that look fantastic on everyone! Spruce up your holiday garb with beautiful skin and stunning lip-color!
