P.S. I saw City of Bones in the theaters but must have completely missed the fact that Luke Garroway was played by Aiden Turner. What the what!? Seriously, how did I miss that?! I was blinded by all the JcB goodness, it’s my only excuse, shrug!


Happy Monday btw….let the good times roll on this very rainy, wet, gross snow covered day!


Lorac No Longer Available At Sephora

Lorac Iconic Collection

Fare thee well my beloved Lorac. Lorac will not longer be available at sadly (grab some steals now with the little that is left online and perhaps grab a deal or two in store too) for the New Year ahead. This is devastating news as I adore the brand! But look ahead to the future as Lorac is now available at Kohls stores and of course, online at

Reader’s had reported Lorac going on sale earlier last year at their Sephora locations and even news of Lorac being no longer available at their stores was reported. Personally I hadn’t experienced it in my location until just recently. I’m hopeful the Sephora stores at JCPenny locations will continue to carry the brand as they do carry Cargo even after it was long gone from

We shall see but this isn’t the end for Lorac just a new beginning!

I know many of you love the brand as much as I do so hopefully 2014 brings some great new products!

NYX Cosmetics Sold at CVS this Spring

NYX Cosmetics is now sold at Target and come Spring you’ll find at your local CVS too! That’s right NYX Cosmetics will be sold at CVS (as shared on the CVS Facebook page)!!!! I typically ship Harmons for most of my drugstore beauty and they have had NYX for several years now but I do find it very interesting that NYX is heading more mainstream. It’s typically been an “online” brand in many cases because so few stores sold it so it is great they are coming full circle now. I hope their new homes will begin carrying some of the palettes as well and newer products.

Thanks to reader Jennifer for the info!

P.S. I admit it, I’m loving these little nibbles that the Huff has been posting about 50 Shades but I’m still not convinced Dakoka Johnson is a good Ana….!
