I mentioned previously that I’ll be at Bath & Body Works
this Saturday at Oakbrook Center for the big party celebrating their Pink Chiffon fragrance launch. You’re invited, and I hope to see you at the store. It’ll be worth it for anyone who wears pink (score free product!
), is one of the first 50 peeps to say I sent you (score another free product!
) and who enters the raffle (you may win a trip to Hawaii
or a bedroom makeover!).
Plus, we can get our hair braided together (for free, of course) at the cool braid station. Choose a ribbon scented with your favorite Fine Fragrance Mist and it will be weaved into the braid
. In addition to the fun, I do have a serious job to do — share my top product picks and beauty tips with you.
Here’s a sneak peek of my top 5 BBW products…
$300+ gift bags, manis and brow waxes, raffles prizes galore, delicous food, a stocked bar and a crowd of happy mamas and moms-to-be all made our sold-out event a huge success. Enjoy this video montage highlighting the night’s festivities and the recap of my presentation. Plus, enter for your chance to win the coveted gift bag.
My top 10 beauty picks and tricks for busy moms
1. Meaningful Beauty Skincare. Yes, beautiful mom Cindy Crawford partnered with the esteemed Dr. Sebagh, but what I appreciate even more is how streamlined and affordable this skincare line is.
2. Phyto haircare. Sure, our hair is shinier and thicker during pregnancy. But our dreamy hair days are numbered. Phyto’s new Phytokeratine line has shampoo, conditiioning treatment and serum created specifically for fragile, weak hair and damaged ends.

This photo isn’t just an excuse to show off my big man (Rex is 5 months old!). It also serves a more practical purpose, which is to introduce you to one of my favorite baby brands PaigeLauren (paigelaurenbaby.com).
Rex is very happy “modeling” this classic hoodie jacket and sweatpants for many reasons. First off, he’s very particular like his father and appreciates attention to detail. From the cute polka-dot pockets to the cozy fabric, which is seriously as soft as his blankie, this has become one of our favorite outfits.
What’s also exciting is that one lucky reader has the chance to win a PaigeLauren baby design!
We’re giving away this newborn sac in emerald.
To enter this giveaway, “like” thebeautygirl.com on facebook or “follow” me on twitter (twitter.com/NPTheBeautyGirl) and RT this message.
P.S. PaigeLauren baby ruby and quartz pieces are on sale through the end of February (30% off) for Valentine’s Day.
Bath & Body Works
is throwing the mother of all events, and it’s not just because I’m a part of it.
Come to Oakbrook Mall Feb. 11th
for the store’s Valentine’s Day party and you could win a trip for 2 to Hawaii or a bedroom makeover
I’ll be sharing my beauty secrets from 12-2, and the first 50 peeps who arrive and mention me, The Beauty Girl, will score an awesome product
The event, which goes from 10-4, will have lots of other fun stuff like a braid boutique where stylists will do your hair for FREE.
P.S. Wear pink!
Bath & Body Works is gifting anyone who shows up in pink their new Pink Chiffon fragrance.
Hope to see you there!
There’s nothing quite like the exhilarating rush you get from scoring a great designer deal. Many of my favorite pieces, like my Proenza Schouler for Target dress, are the ones I’ve been snatching up since the beginning — when Target first launched its now hugely popular designer collections
. Other companies like JCPenney have wisely followed in this lucrative trend, and the spring Nicole by Nicole Miller line at JCPenney has some new additions and adorable looks. Nicole Miller has been doing the line for JCPenney since 2005, but sleepwear, sunglasses, fine jewelry, and bridal jewelry have just been added to the collection. See what we’re lusting over. (P.S. It’s all under $100!)
A few months back, I revealed how you can plan a classy wedding at Costco
. The retailer continues its relationship with the luxury market, and this go around is all about cashmere. Hint: cashmere is always an appreciated holiday gift.
The Italian fashion label Enzo Mantovani, known for their buttery sweaters, is being carried at select Costco locations at 75% off department store prices from now until Jan. 4. Or, you can shop the styles online at costco.com. The loot includes a variety of merino and cashmere tops, ranging from $59.99 to $159.99. Considering most cashmere sweaters start at $150, I think this is a great deal. In this photo, I’ve got on the black V-neck sweater ($119.99). It’s really comfy and has become my new winter staple. I just hope Rex
doesn’t spit up on me every time I wear it!

Black Friday (Nov. 25th) and Cyber Monday (Nov. 28th) are just around the corner, so I rounded up some not-to-be-missed deals on everything from chocolates to cosmetics to clothes. There’s nothing better than scoring a good discount!
