Kiehl's - For your puppy

Today is the last day of the Kiehl's Friends and Family 20% off. I am getting the Shampoo $16, Conditioner $16, and No Rinse Spritz $12 for my puppy. I find Kiehl's products to be very natural and never heavy in fragrance which I'm sure my puppy will appreciate. I'm excited about the No Rinse Spray. First off, it's CLEAR which is good since you are not using water to rinse. I think this will be great for in between bath clean up. Also, for those days his paws get gray! For's the best time to give it a try!

Kiehl's Friends and Family - 20% off!

Black Friday is around the corner and it's time to SHOP TILL YOU DROP! Honestly, I can't do these big shopping events. I can't stand lines and messy inventory. It's just not possible for me to shop that way. BUT, I truly hope all you brave shoppers get some GREAT deals out there! Here's another awesome friends and family from Kiehl's for 20% off from 11/23-11/26. Enter the code FRIDAY at checkout or print the above invitation for the discount. (Thanks LSo!)

I like the lip balm (of course). I always use it around this time as the weather starts changing and my lips get chapped. I dab a bit on the lip balm before I sleep and it's super moisturized in the morning. Another trick is I use it for flyaways or keeping my eyebrow hairs in tact! They have Limited Edition pear, cranberry, and mint flavors right now!

Another great item is the Creme de Corps body lotion. The scent is barely there so it's great for both men and women (my brother uses it...shhh!).

Also, Kiehl's also offers 3 samples at checkout so make sure to add thsoe to your basket!

Happy shopping this weekend!!

Erno Laszlo

Yuck. Black soap? That's almost like rubbing tar on your face you say? Well, it's not and if you've tried it you'll know it's not gross at all. This is Erno Laszlo's Sea Mud Soap...

Dr. Erno Laszlo was a Hungarian Dermatologist who created treatments that spread through word of mouth in 1939. He had such an extraordinary amount of clients he decided to open his first store on Fifth Ave in New York.

First off, I'll say this is the soap used by Audrey Hepburn. If she used this soap and looked the way she did, I can only HOPE by me using the soap I can look half as good as she did. This soap takes concentrated deep sea minerals which deep cleanses the skin. (If you'll recall, La Mer also uses concentrated formula from the sea with sea kelp...something good is in the sea! You don't see dolphins or whales with wrinkly skin do you?) If you like your skin feeling clean you'll like this soap. I'm sure it's great for oily skin since it purifies. I have normal skin and it doesn't dry out my skin at all. It seems a little pricey at $36 a bar, but don't underestimate how long this will last you. I would say a bottle of cleanser lasts 3-6 months. This should last you over 6 months (unless you put it in the shower and let it melt...don't do that). I must say...after this soap Erno Laszlo is my friend. Buy it here at Nordstrom

Black Nail Polish - Yay or Nay?

By now, you probably considered going with the black nail polish this last year. All the celebrities had black nail polish whether it was casual day out or fancy night out. Some celebrities like Paris Hilton and Hilary Duff are still rocking the look. Personally, I like darker polishes on my toes and neutral colors on my fingers. I just can't stand chipping polish! When I'm grubbing on my fried chicken I don't want to wonder if I'm eating some of that black polish into my system. As surprised as I am that this color lasted so long and is still lasting I can understand why. It's actually pretty darn cool! It's almost like an accessory where it revamps your look. You can wear sweats, but be like a rockstar wearing sweats.

My favorite is Chanel's LIMITED EDITION Black Satin is the most coveted color during this phase and is STILL in high demand. The US version is much more chic because it has a platinum shimmer in it. No, not glitter. It's a shimmer woven in the black. Makes it less punk, but still very edgy (main reason I chose Chanel's black over other brand's black). In addition to their own creation on black, Chanel's polishes seem to last longer on me (so I don't have to worry about it while eating my fried chicken!). It glides on smoothly and the color always looks great. I don't think I've bought a bad color yet. The Limited Edition Black Satin color is sold out in stores everywhere....BUT...

Having purchased WAY too many beauty items, I managed to score some of Chanel's Black Satin and have decided to make it available for mypuppyandi readers. If you are interested send me an e-mail at

La Mer

I'm sure you all have all heard of the coveted miracle creme "Crème de la Mer". As I'm aging, I am always worrying about wrinkles. For those that don't know of the brand or want to know more about the brand...keep reading!

This brand has been "coveted by those in the know" since 1965 (although most just heard it in the last few years thanks to celebs and Estee Lauder).

DR. MAX HUBER. Thank him. It all began with Huber (a NASA aerospace physicist) experimenting with chemicals when it exploded in his face and covered his face with severe chemical burns. Nothing out there helped his burns so being a scientist he decided to help himself. After 12 years and much experimentation, he created "the crème". They call the essence in the creme the Miracle Broth. There are many key ingredients and one of them being sea kelp from the west coast (yay us!). The way these ingredients are distilled (a process taking 3-4 months) is what makes it amazing.

Side note. Estee Lauder company acquired La Mer in 1995 which led to the mass outlets available to us through Nordstrom, Saks, Neiman Marcus, etc.

Now, how GOOD is it? I'll give you my opinion in a later post...check back for yay or nay on "Crème de la Mer".

If you've tried La Mer or have something to say, leave a comment below!

Shiseido - Maquillage

Wondering why Maquillage doesn't sound familiar to you? Well, if you're from the states you wouldn't have heard of it because it's not sold here. Let me introduce you to this secret brand.

This is a branch of Shiseido (it's like their drugstore brand). I think their shadow palettes are quite impressive. They have everything you need to create a look without having to think which colors go where or which colors to blend. If you look at the first palette with the greens, it has the yellow for all over, the green for the lid, and the silver to illuminate the eye. The green on the bottom left hand corner is a gel form eyeliner! You can always play around with these, but if you're too lazy to don't have to. The second palette is the same concept. I LOVE that it has eyeliner. That's what sold it for me.

Another great product is this face powder. I love versatile palettes. It just makes sense to get something you can use with everything right? This palette is great because it has multiple colors to blend with many skin tones. Don't you hate it when you can't find that EXACT shade? I find I'm always a little to light or a little too dark. With this, you can kind of blend your own. Especially in the winter and summer months when you either drop or increase in a shade. This can be a great value in that it's usable all year long.

There are only a few online sites that offer this brand. One that I trust is SASA. They are a big cosmetics company in Asia. The site also has deals and promotions year round. Compared to Sephora, they offer 7 free samples and free shipping with every purchase of $75 or more.

GUCCI - Holiday Shopping

OK. Get Ready. Gucci is in the holiday spirit this year and is offering 10% off on November 20th! Get this...there's also free shipping online! There's a lot of great items in their Cruise collections. If you ever wanted a Gucci handbag or just been eyeing those Gucci's time to get them! Or, if you're like me and want to get your puppy and Christmas present you can get your paws on this. Better start early as all the handbag fanatics will be on this! Gucci 10% off

L'Occitane Friends and Family

Remember those exquisite hand creams I mentioned the other day? Well, even more of a reason to get them is L'Occitane's friends and family event! They are better than Sephora's friends and family (20%) and L'Occitane is offering 25%!!
While you're at it, they also have great shampoo/conditioner. I must say, I don't know what they put in their conditioner but after I use it my hair is super soft and manageable. I can't explain it, but it's great! I was first introduced to this product at the Four Seasons Hotel. I took a shower after my long flight and woke up the next morning with the best hair ever! At this point, I just thought it was great hair day. I was even telling some friends how the hotel had soft water for their guests since that's what it felt like. My brother stayed at the Four Seasons shortly after my trip and I mentioned how soft their water was. He was like...I don't know about the water, but the L'Occitane hair care is the best! It was then that I realized I undermined L'Occitane. If any of you have also stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel, you know it's SO worth it! For those of you who don't want to spend that much money on your hair, I would still recommend you getting just the conditioner for $17 (it's actually only $12.75 if you get it now during the F&F!). You don't even have to use it daily, just when your hair is feeling a bit dull. Especially now that it's winter my hair tends to gets a bit dry. This will make it feel SO smooth and silky. This is even great for guys. My brother loves this stuff and gets giddy when he says how it makes his hair so soft while feeling his hair. (shh...Don't tell him I told you all!) Once again, L'Occitane's friends and family for instore coupon or enter FNF25 for online use. Starts today!

Juicy Rocks

The holidays are around the corner and many of you will gather your loved ones in your own home or your friend's home. There are many ways to be agreat host/hostess and one of them is simply keep your house smelling delish. You've heard of air fresheners that spray, plug-in, light up, heat up, etc. Juicy Couture introduces Juicy Couture
Pebbles Of Couture Fragrance Rocks
. I think this is a neat idea that instead of messy potpourri that crumbles into a billion little crushed pieces these are rocks that are quite easy to pick up if spilled. They are in a multitude of colors to match with any home decor. This will definitely be a conversation piece when guests ask "what is that great fragrance you have in here?" or "what do these couture rocks do?". If you're interested in getting one for yourself this season or gifting one as a gift or housegift visit Saks Fifth Avenue for Juicy Rocks priced at $45.

L'Occitane hand cream

My L'Occitane hand cream goes with me everywhere. I have the full size next to my bed at home. I have the mini in my purse, at work, and in my car. It's something I can't live without. I have passed this treasured item to my mom, dad, brother, bf, grandparents, and cousins. Yes, it's THAT good anybody can use it! This hand cream is light honey and cream smelling with 20% pure shea butter for maximum moisturizing. You would think this much buttery substances would make your hands oily, but works into your hands immediately. After using this product your hands will feel smoother and protected. It's their #1 seller for a reason.

Deal: they are offering this Hand Cream Trio at L'Occitane for only $25! These are the smaller sizes that regulary retail for $10 each. You save money and get a variety of scents in Honey and Lemon, Rose, and Cherry Blossom (so sweet!). You can also get this set from Sephora with the Original, Honey and Lemon, and Cherry Blossom. I'm getting a couple of these sets for Christmas (ok, I won't lie, I'm stashing 2 sets for myself!) *Remember: Sephora is still offering Friends and Family with code FF2007 for 20% off! If you rather get a cute silver clutch with a bunch of samples inside use code CLUTCH1. happy shopping from mypuppyandi!!
