I love gift cards.
Gift cards for holidays, birthdays, special occasions, I don’t care whatever it is I love ‘em. I like giving gift cards alot.
Ok, go on, you can say it. OMG Muse you impersonal biatch! But listen….my sister is the type of person that freaking has everything and alot of my friend’s are like that too. It’s really difficult settling on a gift for people like that so gift cards are so awesome. I really like the idea of giving someone a little extra cash to spend at their favorite store, it’s a rather great thing for the receiver in my humblest.
Now to some extent I agree they are kinda impersonal which is why I always try to spice up the gift card with a small gift or little goodies to make up for the impersonal aspect of the card itself.
Here are 20 GREAT palette ideas that are $20 and under which would be great to stuff in a stocking, give as a small gift to people, or to accompany with a gift card.
Sonia Kashuk is busy stealing my heart all this season with so many great brush sets and Holiday offerings that are inexpensive, elegant, and practical.
Anyone hit up Target yet to see if it’s hit the shelves? I haven’t been to Target lately but it is all available online if the Muse created any lemmings with the reviews she’s done for you recently.
By the very way Sonia Kashuk is actually on sale this week on the Target site (and in store if you’re lucky enough to find it).
Sonia Kashuk Twist of Fate 6 Piece Brush Set is marked down to $17.99 (from $19.99) and most all of the catalog is on sale in some shape or form. Coolness right? Always looking to save a buck here.
Today I thought I’d whip out the Sonia Kashuk Glitz & Glam 4 Piece Brush Set and have a little play with it for a quickie makeup look!
Jump ahead to hear my review.
Today the Muse is all about buffing powder onto my face with the new Sonia Kashuk Twist & Shout Kabuki Brush for Holiday 2009.
It’s ok, it’s ok everyone remain calm I promise I will not go into a long rant about how much I love the Beatles and how Twist and Shout was one of thee greatest songs circa their 60’s era (don’t get me started on the 70’s or John era that story is way too long for this post).
I will bring you some Ferris.
I mean come on how 80’s-tastic was that scene? Almost as good as when he started lipping Wayne Newton’s Danke Schoen.
Bueller, Bueller, Anyone?

I know you’re all very, very excited about the release of the Sonia Kashuk Holiday Collection 2009 as I got dozens of e-mails requesting a review and asking when it’ll be in stores.
Here’s the deets.
I traveled through Target late Sunday night to pick up some last minute party stuff for Halloween and of course I hit up the makeup section. As of yet it hasn’t been updated with Holiday and as of last look it was displayed on Target’s site as having a 3-4 week wait prior to shipping. Good news is it’s available for shipping on Target when I checked today and a reader even said she got her stuff in the mail already plus you can get free shipping with your $50 purchase (don’t forget to shop around for coupons as Target has 10% ones hanging around), bad news is as of yet it’s not available in store from what I’ve seen but have no fear I imagine that situation will be redeemed very, very shortly.
Even better news is I have an early preview of the collection and I’m hear to say wow…elegant and inexpensive, unheard of right? But indeed Sonia managed to combine budget friendly options plus a beautiful air of elegance to each piece.
For my first review of the collection I’ll be showing you the brand new Sonia Kashuk Twist of Fate Brush Set.
Jump for it.
Hasn’t hit shelves yet darlings but Sonia Kashuk Holiday Collection 2009 is winging it’s way to Target soon and I, for one, will be there as soon as it arrives.
Jump ahead for the deets!
