Where to Shop: Holiday guide PART ONE

Hey Guys, Its that time of the year again where everyone goes crazy trying to find the perfect gifts. Today I will share some tips, websites, and stores that might help save some cash during this season of madness.

Probably everyone has heard of black friday(November 29) and cyber monday(december 2). It's still a few weeks before then but places have already started with sales and deals.

online only:

Hautelook- Flash sales with holiday ideas, fashion, beauty, home, kids, etc. Sales are only for a few days, but events often come back again. At least in my area. the shipping does take a long time. So if you want to order from here, buy soon

ebates- A place to get cash back from many many stores with extra cash back starting now. But it's not actually a store.

QVC, is a tv channel that has great deals that can also be accessed online. They have all kinds of products like gift sets and home decor at reasonable to expensive prices.

Makeup:

sephora, ulta. and other stores often have special online only deals...and with makeup you don't necessarily have to try anything on. But if you have one in your area it might be nice to go in store to try testers, and see actual product sizes.

Wallgreens, I am kinda in love with this store right now.  They have a variety of things like different makeup, holiday things, and sales.

Places like target and walmart have a large variety of items not just beauty. They often try to have low prices so that is great.One thing about target is that their red card is actually not a good holiday saver, since they advertise for it a lot you might think so, but don't be fooled. They charge you about 20% interest( if you don't pay by the end of the month).

Body /skincare:

Michael Todd (I think it's only online) perfect for a skincare junkie or for yourself(shh...no one has to know).

Lush is international, has cute little shops. Not too too pricy but at the same time it is a little luxurious. The perfect place to buy your friends a little treat!

Bath And Body Works is online, but I would recommend going to the store since it is a scent shop where you should probably smell something before you buy it. They always have a sale and coupons so google before you go out to  shop to get the best deal.

The Body Shop is more skincare vs perfumes. I think its a store you can get away with buying online. They have gift sets and sales as well.

Clothes:
 Are a kinda risky present but I would suggest gift cards from Forever21 (currently has holiday offers- if looking for actual clothes) since at least where I live everyone loves that store. OR if you know someones favorite just get them one from there.

Jewelry:
 Can be found in almost anywhere, again I recommend Hautelook since you can buy luxe gifts at affordable prices. Or just go to any local store and browse and see what you think the person your shopping for would like.
