Stocking Stuffers, Self-Tanners and Spa Deals, Oh My!

How were your weekends, lovelies?? I was holed up working on a fun spa feature (more on this tomorrow) and didn’t make it to a single movie on my list—anything I just HAVE to see?

Thought we would kick off the week with some treats of the beauty kind:

30% off all St. Tropez products + free shipping (today only!) when you refer 3 friends on Facebook. I know quite a few of you are mad about the self-tanning mousse, which now comes in an instant, wash-off bronzer version. I’m hoping this means an end to Mystic spray tans.

40% off Tarte Friends + Family sale (through Dec. 13) – enter FFDEC at checkout, after you’ve scooped up this smashing mini cheek stain set as stocking stuffers for three of your best girls. Seeing as how they’re only FIFTEEN DOLLARS, you should probably get a set for yourself as well.

Twin Cities Live Holiday Beauty BashTune in today at 3pm when I’ll be gushing about December promos at some of my favorite spas and salons. Here’s a preview:

  • Over-the-top spa packages at Spalon Montage for less than the cost of a pair of premium denim
  • A sweet sale on must-have blowout tools at Jon Charles, like the professional blow-drier I’ve been eyeing like a hawk
  • Rather amazing deals at Phresh on all the pampering you’ll need to feel pretty for the holidays

Happy Monday!
