The most lovely Regina at Margarita Boom has informed the Muse that you can get 25% off your entire order up until the New Year!
This is a tremendous value and a great time to stock up on some great and unique Bath and Body goodies as gifts and stocking stuffers!
I featured Margarita Bloom in a Few of my Favorite Stocking Stuffers post! You can click here and check it out!
The Muse is off to fill her cart with goodies!
It may sound unappealing but I rock the home shopping boat every year for Christmas! Many people think that shopping from QVC will nab you cheap gifts that are not worth the effort or the money of ordering but that’s not the case! You can nab some great gifts that are inexpensive and quite posh! They also offer great flexible payment options to spread your payments into small monthly payments rather then paying the entire amount right away! Many cosmetic options also have some products that are exclusive to QVC so these are items you can’t purchase from anywhere else!
I’ve gathered together a few Philosophy items that are really great deals in my opinion and maybe they’ll simplify your Christmas gift list!
Philosophy Lemonade 5-Piece Deluxe Set Available at QVC Item Number A18856 $80USD
Includes all of the following items:
- 16-fl oz old fashioned lemonade shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath
- 8-oz lemonade body butter
- 23-oz old fashioned lemonade salt scrub
- 2-oz lemonade hand cream
- 0.5 oz lemon-flavored lip shine
Purchased separately this entire lot would run you $91USD
Lemonade isn’t my favorite philosophy Shower Gel but this lot of items will save you $11 if you purchased them separately so not a bad deal!
Philosophy Flavored Lip Collection Available from QVC Item Number A72108 $29.98
Includes all of the following:
- lip gloss in vanilla birthday cake
- lip gloss in powdered sugar cookie
- lip gloss in raspberry sorbet
- lip gloss in melon daiquiri
Purchased separately each lip shine is $10 which totals $40 for four! You’ll save $10 by getting this set!
Philosophy Amazing Grace Head to Toe 6 Piece Layering Kit Available from QVC Item Number A4518
Includes all of the following items:
- 8-oz amazing grace shampoo, bath, and shower gel
- 8-oz amazing grace hair conditioner
- 8-oz amazing grace firming body emulsion
- 1-oz amazing grace hand cream
- 2-oz amazing grace spray fragrance
- 0.27 oz amazing grace perfume oil
- 2-oz bonus purity made simple facial cleanser
- 0.4 oz bonus hope in a jar moisturizer
Some of the items in set set aren’t valued but if you add together the shampoo, conditioner, body emulsion, hand cream, spray perfume, and oil it comes to $87 or more!
Black Friday is gone but it’s Cyber Monday which means a few Steals and Deals are to be had!
Sadly Black Friday was a bust for me! I didn’t find much of anything that was too big a savings! How about you?

Since Lush NA is located within and distributes from Canada the chances of a Black Friday sale are 50/50 (Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October not November) and the same goes for Lush UK (Our brit friends don’t celebrate Thanksgiving at all).
The bad news is there may or may not be a Black Friday sale this week but the good news is you have your Muse to tell you if their is or isn’t come Friday morning!
While we await word of a Black Friday Sale you can take advantage of purchasing pre-wrapped gifts at Lush with a 10% savings code! Use Code LUSCIOUSGIFTS03 to get 10% Off this offer is good for all Holiday and year round gifts but is only good from Lush NA (the coupon codes does not extend to Lush UK).
If you’re a Lush Connoisseur you’ve realized that buying pre-wrapped gifts isn’t exactly the best deal in the world! If you’re new to Lush and wondering why that is allow your Muse to explain that the gifts are gorgeous, wonderful, and lovely but they aren’t exactly cheap! If you purchase each item included in a gift set individually you’ll notice a $3-8 (or more) increase on price when purchased within a gift set! Which obviously means you’re paying for all the delightful wrapping! In the case of hat boxes it’s well worth it but when it’s just a brightly colored packaged with a cardboard box underneath when unwrapped it may or may not be worth the extra dollars you’re paying for it!
So………10% off is basically like getting free gift wrapping service for your gifts! It takes just the right amount off to even out the costs of all that lovely wrapping paper!
Head on over to Lush and score some great gifts for your mum, sister, friends, and hey maybe even your boyfriend (Might the Muse recommend Stocking Fella and Overhaul for him!)
The sale is ongoing until December 10th!
I know the Super-Size Christmas Pud is on my list plus a Hat Box (I already purchased a Retro Hatbox from the UK for me but my sister would love one I’m sure!)!
Shop, Save, and Tell the Muse what you get!
The Muse’s friends at Kiss and Makeup had reported earlier that Pout was taking a nose dive and going bye bye!
The line is super cute and I’m super sad to see it go
The good news is they are having a SALE! The entire line is 50% off but even with that great discount the items are still somewhat high in cost so I’d definately suggest waiting a bit longer and seeing if the sale takes a nose dive to 75% off!
You never know!
I’ll mourn the loss of Pout but I sure will do a little jig when I can nab some great Pout at sale prices!
Can’t wait? Visit Pout for the ongoing sale!
Time to shop (and save)!

Quite a few goodies to be had but hurry things are selling out fast!
I haven’t had much time to do the research for this week’s Steals and Deals section! I’m so sorry about that!
Here’s the short version of this week’s Steals and Deals
The good news is Sephora’s Friends and Family Discount is ongoing until the 21st as confirmed by the gorgeous Erika at Makeup Bag!
Stila also has a little sale ongoing this week which gives you a number of interesting discounts depending on the dollar amount spent! Click here for details!
And finally it’s worth a mention that Sephora has a NARS lip palette on sale for $30 and with the 20% off from the Friends and Family Sale you can nab it for $25! Good deal in the Muse’s opinion! The palette is originally $55 and would quite make a perfect little gift or stocking stuff at the reduced price!

Instead of my normal Steals and Deal entry this weekend I thought I’d present you with an early Christmas shopping guide!
I normally start Christmas shopping around the second week or so of November but so many good deals are around now is a good time to start!
If you’re looking for a special beauty product for your friends, family, or maybe even a neighbor (or hey maybe you’re looking for a little something to spoil yourself) here are some great deals that will please any girly girl on your list!
I’m not partial to it myself but the Sephora Blockbuster Palette would make a great gift for the cosmetic lover in your life! $48usd nabs you an array of goodies and if you happen to purchase it during the Friends and Family Event it’ll cut the cost to $38usd! If you happen to live outside of the US I’d say this is still a good deal because it’ll probably cost about $12-15 to ship via airmail so you end up with about the original price tag when purchasing during the discount!
Sephora Blackbuster Palette
The palette includes 64 eyeshadows, 32 lip colors, 7 blushes, one shimmer powder, four applicators, two blush brushes, and two lip brushes! Obviously with all that packed into one very sleek, smart palette it’s a steal and a deal!
It may seem like a weird gift but I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t love a big old bottle of Philosophy Candy Cane Three in One Shower Gel! You can get a HUGE helping of Candy Cane (32oz’s of creamy, minty shower gel) for $25! The 16oz size is normally $20 so, hey, for $5 bucks more go super size and grab a nice large helping to get you through Christmas and beyond! You can nab this large size from QVC just search for item number A69545!
Philosophy Candy Cane Three in One Shower Gel as seen on QVC
Since you’re going super size on the Candy Cane you can pick up the 32oz size of Gingerbread Man for $22.80usd! Just search for item number A74732 to nab yourself this deal. The Muse isn’t a fan of this but she can’t disagree on the great price!
Philosophy’s The Gingerbread Man Three in One Shower Gel as seen on QVC
The prices just keep getting lower and for $21.97 you can grab the 32oz size of one of the Muse’s favorite scented shower gels from Philosophy, Cinnamon Buns (I like mixing a little Candy Cane and Cinnamon Bun together! Yum!)! Item Number A61756 grabs you a nice large helping of Cinnamon Buns minus the calories!
Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Three in One as seen on QVC
QVC is probably the only place I’ve seen these large sizes available and I can’t begin to say what a great deal they are! My target audience here at Musings of a Muse are from Asia and Europe so a little tip for you my pretties! If by chance you are lemming these fine items the Muse will tell you a nice little secret! You can purchase two or three of these and have them shipped via airmail for a flat rate of $37usd! The prices for the gels are quite obscene Euro side so this will most definitely save you a ton of cash! In your case if you purchased three of these and used the flat rate shipping method it would cost you about $35usd per a bottle which again is a great deal! If you happen to have a friend or family member to split the bottle with you’ll each be paying about $17usd per 16oz which is almost the original price of a smaller bottle here in the US! A good deal all around in the Muse’s opinion!
I’ve already previously mentioned this but it does deserve a re-mention you can get three 16oz Philosophy Shower Gels (these include little gift bags as well!) for $35usd! Purchased separately that would be $48usd! Item Number A5322 gets you all three with gift bags!
A Few Good Men Philosophy Shower Gel Trio Available at QVC
Here’s another little product that the Muse has previously mentioned but thought was worth a re-mention! Bath and Body Works has a duo of Hand and Body Lotion and Hand Wash for $15usd! These are jumbo 16oz sizes and at $15usd bucks you can’t go wrong!
A 3.3oz bottle of one of the Muse’s favorite perfumes, Agent Provocateur, will set you back $110 but you don’t have to pay that much for the large bottle! How about saving $33 on the large bottle and nabbing it for $76.99. Sweet deal in the Muse’s opinion! If you (or yourself) have someone very special (like your mum or best friend) to spoil this season this is a posh deal!
You can nab this deal at Costco (Yes, yes I know shopping for AP at Costco isn’t exactly glamerous but hey the price is right!).
Ok kids get shopping! That’s it for this weeks Christmas Shopping Steals and Deals!
I’ll bring you more as I see them pop up!
