While the day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year, savvy shoppers know it’s the day after Christmas that’s best for scooping up fabulous goodies at rock bottom prices.
Or maybe you’re itching to spend a gift card someone oh-so-thoughtfully gave you.
Me? I know EXACTLY what I want, cause I’ve been eyeballing J. Crew’s Bouclé tweed short scarf coat for weeks. But the sale price of $229 (marked down from $350), is still a bit much for a jacket that’s more cute than functional.
So starting at midnight I’ll be checking J.Crew’s website obsessively waiting for this baby to be marked down further and hoping it doesn’t sell out in my size.
Now tell me, what’s on your after-Christmas sale shopping list?
I wonder if it really works?
That's the first question that popped into my head when I came across Cover Girl's Exact Eyelights mascara in the grocery store. The second? Can that mediocre-singing Rihanna (who's pictured in the display) get any cuter?
I grabbed the one for brown eyes and tossed it in my buggy, because as I've explained to Mr. PBW - if it comes from the supermarket it's not really yet another beauty product, now is it?
Anyhoo, like me, I'll bet you're dying to know if Cover Girl's eye-brightening claim is indeed true, and this mascara inspired every man I've come across while wearing it break into a chorus of Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”?
Uh...duh…um...welllll, I dunno?????
I think it makes the brown in my eyes a bit more rich and intense. Then again, that may be because I'm staring into them in the mirror when I usually don't. Can’t decide?
However, in pulling normal mascara duties this one wasn’t very impressive. It clumped. It failed to lift and separate my lashes. Then to top it off, it smudged within a half hour of application.
If you decide to go for it anyway, this mascara comes in four shades:
Black Gold – for hazel eyes
Black Sapphire – for blue eyes
Black Pearl – for brown eyes
Black Ruby – for green eyes
I paid $7.50 for it at Kroger.
