Neiman Marcus Camp Gorgeous Event

Update: This event has ended so you don’t get the tote with treats, but many of the GWPs are still active. Neiman Marcus has started its Camp Gorgeous event online (this is online through June 9, and will be in store May 31-June 6). They have several gifts with purchase available (see below) plus with any $85 select cosmetics purchase (that is, from the 38 participating brands) you will receive a NM Exclusive camouflage tote and samples. The samples included are: Natura Bisse C+C Vitamin Scrub, Kate Somerville Protect SPF 55, Fekkai Coiff Ironless Straightening Balm, Orlane Hypnotherapy Anti-Age Care Eye Contour, and a mini Laura Mercier Lip Colour. They are also offering a coordinating camouflage makeup bag along with a full size Laura Mercier Bronzing duo for only $10 (retail value is $32). [Note: The $10 you spend on the Laura Mercier bag/bronzing duo does NOT count towards the $85 you must spend to get the tote and samples.] [Update: The $10 bag with Laura Mercier bronzer has sold out.]

Well, some of you may have noticed a new little feature on my blog yesterday, this little cutie:

First I want you to know that this is only a temporary thing. I’ve been hesitant to add this because this blog is a labor of love. This isn’t something I do for money, but because it is a passion. But I’m going on vacation for three weeks in July and I’ve been thinking for the last few weeks: I need a laptop.

If everyone who reads this blog clicks on the button and makes a one time donation of just $1 I will be able to buy a laptop so that while I’m traveling I can update you guys with full posts and keep my faithful readers up to date daily. If I am unable to acquire a laptop, I will still post it just may not be as thorough as you’ve grown accustomed to and when I post will depend on when I have access to a computer.

I’m looking forward to being able to keep you up to date while I travel! If you would like to donate please make your donation by June 6, I will be removing the donate button from the site on June 7.
