For those of you sick of my Sephora sale posts, rejoice, since this is the last one! My fellow makeup lovers can be sad with me haha. Today’s post is a gift guide of sorts (more of these coming as we fly along to the Christmas holiday) for those that may have a beauty lover to buy for! I love it when I can buy a Christmas or birthday present on sale!
Since a bunch of these are limited edition items or very expensive, I haven’t tried most of them. But I wanted to share what I’d get a friend or family member. Some of these are holiday gift sets and some are luxury items that make my insides turn they’re so expensive, but are well rated online and cult favorites.

Since I’ve been trying to incorporate more affordable fashion into the blog, I’ve been watching for sales on online retailers of affordable clothes. Which, shopbop.com
is an online retailer of all price ranges of fashion, but they are having a big sale that ends tomorrow (Friday, October 14th) at midnight (Pacific time). Your order will be 25% off which for us Canadian girls, means we are only paying ~10% currency markup rather than 1.34 Canadian dollars for every US Dollar we purchase in. Regardless of what currency you’re purchasing in, though, this is a great sale and an awesome opportunity to buy on-season items more affordably. I’ve included below some of my favorite picks under $150!
All you need to do to take advantage of this sale is use the code MAINEVENT16 at checkout!
ps. Shopbop.com will recognize that you’re in Canada and show you the Canadian cost of whatever you’re buying- the equivalent will just be charged to you in US. Hooray for transparency!
