Do you shop Indie?
Indie shops are a celebration in creativity. Most of them are owned by a single person who basically puts their heart into creating either makeup, bath and body products, or skincare just for the joy of doing so, this would be the thing that makes Indie shops so very special. But let’s not forget in many cases Indie products are extremely unique and inexpensive!
Here’s Five of my Fav Indie Shops.
QVC, a most tempting diversion at 3 AM when you can’t sleep and nothing else is on TV. That’s how it all started. One night, a long, long time ago I simply couldn’t sleep and was channel surfing from the comfort of my bed when I came across the dangers of QVC. I remember my first purchase from the brand was at a quarter past 3 AM on a Tuesday night when sleep wouldn’t cometh. The purchase was a company called ABC and it was a trio of products that included a cream blush, a lipgloss, and…something else, I believe a cheek gel.
Somehow, I suddenly became QVC’s biggest fan and supporter.
There are both pros and cons to world of home shopping.

Well….my little Back to Schoolers, jump ahead for three of the best ways you can indulge in high end for a low cost.
Just a quickie post to introduce you to the Little Black Box (just a note I am not affiliated with this company, this is not a paid post, nor does the company even know I am posting about them).
I’ve told you about The Little Black Box a really LONG time ago. So long ago, in fact, that I can’t find the original post I did haha!
What is it?
It’s a box that arrives at your door for $13.50 filled with 10-13 product samples (some full sizes as well) from various e-tailers around the Internet. If you’re a fond fan of Indie brands, Etsy, etc….this box should appeal. I’ve ordered the boxes for a number of years now and really enjoy getting the chance to try out new products from various e-tailers that I’ve heard of and some I’ve never heard of. It’s rather a fun way to discover new products including makeup, bath and body, etc….
Normally the boxes are $23 but the company is actually being taken over by a new owner and clearing inventory so the June boxes are on sale for $13.50.
