Save Money on Makeup, Really

Best Ways to Save Money on Makeup and Beauty Products

I can not be the only one who gets frustrated with sales. I get all excited about big sales, 15-20% off everything! And then I read the fine print. Beauty products are always excluded. If any are included, it's a strange scent of a candle, or maybe a gift set of the fragrance your grandma likes. Not that lippie you've been wanting to splurge on (here's the lipstick I'm currently coveting).

Well, it turns out that you can get a discount on makeup. Actually, you can get a discount on everything you buy at many stores online, the answer is Ebates. The discount works for that great mascara you can't live without, your favorite splurge foundation and even the new Urban Decay eye shadow palette everyone is talking about.

Note that I just posted links to Sephora, Neiman Marcus, ULTA, Macy's... Yes. Ebates works at all of those. They actually partner with about 2000 name brands. Sites like Saks Fifth Avenue, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, bareMinerals, MAC Cosmetics, philosophy, Sigma Beauty, BH Cosmetics, e.l.f. Cosmetics, IT Cosmetics, Kat Von D Beauty, Mac Jacobs Beauty, NARS Cosmetics, Stila Cosmetics.... the list goes on and on. And those are only the traditional beauty sites!

Ebates is pretty easy to use. You sign up, and then use the links on their site to head to the store you want to shop at (note that that is very important, without this step they won't know you purchased anything). Everything is tracked for you. When you purchase, you'll get Cash Back automatically every 3 months via a check or PayPal.

One of the best parts of Ebates is that they have limited time offers, such as double cash back! Here are a few special offers for this weekend only:

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics - was 4%, now get 8% Cash Back
Macy's – was 3%, now get 6% Cash Back
bareMinerals - was 4%, now get 8% Cash Back
Athleta - was 2%, now get 4% Cash Back
Overstock - was 2%, now get 4% Cash Back
JCPenney - was 3%, now get 6% Cash Back
Kohl's - was 3%, now get 6% Cash Back
JCrew - was 1.5%, now get 3% Cash Back
Walmart - was 1%, now get 10% Cash Back

Note that the cash back is in addition to sales and special offers. If you're shopping online sales this weekend, you'll want to join Ebates now! If you join through my Ebates link, you'll get a $10 Welcome Bonus after your first purchase of $25 or more.

Featured in this morning's Best of Bobbi Brown post are some of my favorite products from Bobbi Brown. You can combine the double cash back with the free sparkler set for a $50+ order through the weekend!

Blush (and Bashful) Beauty and Fashion Picks

Light Pink, Blush Beauty and Fashion Picks

I know the all white and neutral look is always great for winter, but I find it a bit hard to pull off without feeling like I should be a nurse in the 1970s. Instead, I want light pinks! Blushes (and Bashfuls if you're Shelby), especially when paired with a light nude or gold. So pretty!

Kate Spade Surprise Sale Picks

So, it's Memorial Day. And in the lead up to the holiday, did you notice the millions of sales? And I'm a bit addicted to online shopping. So, I'll be putting my picks from different sales up. Starting with the Surprise Sale from Kate Spade. Nordstrom is starting a big sale today too, I'll be adding picks from their sale and a few others as I shop!

1. Sponge Crepe A-Line Dress: I love the color of this dress and the zipper detail in the back. I'm trying to decide if I have somewhere to wear it, but it's sitting in my cart right now!

2. Vegas Jewels Necklace: It will go with pretty much anything.

3. Limoncello Bouquet Large Colin: I like this set for travel a lot! 2 bags that can nestle together or be used on their own depending upon how much stuff you're packing.

4. Highland Place Bee: This is a cute little wristlet or pouch. Great for taking just a few things with you or to hold things in a bigger purse.

5. Perri Lane Bubble Lynne: I love the texture on the outside of this bag. It's pretty thin, so not a big tote, but it would be a great summer alternative for bringing papers to and from work.

6. Le Pavillion iPad Mini Folio or iPad Folio: I am a sucker for polka dots!

7. Sawyer Street Alair: A big, multipurpose tote. Perfect for travel this summer!

8. Montford Park Smooth Keira: A cute little clutch, I love the bow!

9. Moon River Bangle: More of the pink that I'm obsessing over and a bow! I have a few Kate Spade bangles and love stacking them together. This is a great pop of color.

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale Picks

Nordstrom has started their Half Yearly Sale, which means a lot of great savings on items for this summer!

kate spade new york 'cobble hill - mini carson' crossbody bag: Crossbody bags are really, really perfect for moms. I have a couple that I rotate between for holding my own "essentials" like my phone, money, lip balm, etc. I then can leave all of the baby stuff in the big baby bag, and don't need to dig through it when my phone rings.

BP Faceted Statement Necklace: This is an insane deal. Buy all the colors.

Kendra Scott 'Arden' Station Cuff: I love the detail on this bracelet.

MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Anya' Platform Sandal: All I can say is wow! The details are amazing on this one.

Rebecca Minkoff 'Mini Fiona' Bucket Bag: Bucket Bags are big this year, and this is a steal! The smoke color is perfect with bright colors or pastels. It's very versatile.

MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Large Eliza' Tote: This is a plastic tote, which means it is perfect for taking to the beach or pool, where things would get wet. It's in my cart now for using this summer with my girls!

Pleione Mixed Media Tunic: I have this shirt in 3 colors and want more! Buy your regular size for a relaxed fit, go up one for a "tunic" like fit.

Not Pictured:
Tumi 'Alpha Bravo - Kingsville' Deluxe BriefPack: I have this backpack, and it was great when I traveled with my kids this spring! There's a separate pocket for the computer, which makes going through TSA much, much easier! I also have the matching Alpha Bravo Everett Essential Tote, and the Alpha Bravo Knox Backpack is a good option if you don't need the computer slot.

target="_blank" rel="nofollow"Alexis Bittar 'Elements' Multistrand Necklace: Such a great statement necklace!

Donna Morgan 'Jessie' Twist Waist Chiffon Dress: Great if you have a wedding to attend this summer. It comes in a ton of colors, so perfect for pretty much everyone.

Lush Blouson Chiffon Skater Dress: I love the neckline on this dress. Plus, it is only $27. YES.

Adrianna Papell Pleated Jersey Blouson Dress: This is a great LBD for the office.

Bobeau One-Button Fleece Wrap Cardigan: I keep looking at this (in Mink) and will probably snap one up finally.

Pleione Print Shift Dress: I love this alone or over a pair of black leggings

AG Jeans 'The Stilt' Cigarette Leg Stretch Jeans: These are my favorite jeans. I practically live in them. I refuse to buy them full price, but YES, they are definitely worth spending around $100 (or a bit more).

Summer Shopping: Avoiding The Birk

Affiliate Links

Best Non-Birkenstock Sandals

I graduated from high school in 1995. Which means that when I was graduating, the Birkenstock was in the middle of a revival. Why, yes, I did wear Birkenstocks to my graduation ceremony. My mom didn't say a thing, she was good that way. (Thanks, Mom!)

So, I can not get on board with the current Normcore, we all wear Birks everywhere thing. I did that in 1995, I want something cuter! But yes, I do admit that they are really comfortable. So, if you're going to go there, more power to you.

I did a little shopping for alternatives this week. I was trying to be comfy but cute, and I was drawn to these Birk alternatives. One of the keys for "cuteness" seems to be forgetting about that molded shoe bed. Which honestly, never quite hit my foot in the right spot anyways. So, this is a win-win thing in my mind! I was looking for wide leather straps and a flat (or nearly flat) heel.

best comfy summer sandals

1. Forever 21 Faux Leather Slingback Sandals: That zipper accent is actually my favorite part! This is also such an affordable pair of sandals, how can you not get a pair?

2. H&M Sandals: I love the ankle strap on this pair!

3. Gap Classic Leather Sandals: A thinner ankle strap here, and I like the combination of the black leather and the brown foot bed.

4. Tory Burch Marbella Flat Sandal: I love the criss cross of the straps.

5. Kork-Ease Myrna 2.0 Cork Wedge Sandal: This is more sole than I would normally like (it's bordering a bit too much on mid-90's here), but I think it works!

6. MICHAEL Michael Kors Sawyer Double-Band Sandal, Black: This is the closest I'll probably get to a Birk! It's streamlined and skinnier than a Birk, and the monochrome look is better.

7. UGG Australia Char Mar Ankle Cuff Wedge Sandal: Yes, it's an UGG. I KNOW. So pretty. That tiny bit of wedge makes a big difference.
