My Piperlime Picks include Kate Spade.

You've heard that saying, "Nothing haunts us like the things we didn't buy." Well, I have been experiencing this no-buy-regret since late Summer, when I first came across the +kate spade new york Skyline Glow necklace. Discovered at +Nordstrom, it's $349 price tag was well out of my budget. So I kept my fingers crossed that one day, we would run into each other again, at a much lower price.

After Christmas I made a mad search for the Skyline Glow necklace and while I came up empty handed with Nordys, I discovered it at Piperlime. Still out of my reach at $224.99. A few weeks pass and I forget not about the necklace but where I came across it for sale.



How fate intervened.
I have been waiting all Winter for +Piperlime to host their 'Take an additional 60% Off of Clearance' sale. Last year I grabbed an amazing vegan skirt for under $10 and this year, I hit the jackpot again! My $567 valued haul included (2) Piperlime Collection pieces, a sequins skirt and a gold dress, and at the last minute I crossed paths with that
 +kate spade new york necklace. Once I signed in to check out, it popped up in the 'Recently Viewed' footer.

It can't be! But it was! Hidden from main view, it was included in the 60% off sale and available for purchase at $89.99. I decided to treat to myself, as a 40th Birthday Present. In the end my cart came to $113.97. I redeemed another $5 Gap Rewards, earned when I purchased the jeans and tights at GAP a few days earlier, bringing my $567 cart to $108.97. What was in your haul? xoxo •Nancy-Lee

Widening the GAP on Winter and Summer Savings.

We were waiting for Lush to open their doors for business, +Gap took advantage of the early morning shoppers in their wing and let us in '15 minutes early'. +Franci was eyeing a red jacket in the window and I had Gap Rewards wanting to be spent, so win win!! While she skipped the jacket, I took advantage of the additional 60% off sale and scored a $19.95 pair of black ribbed tights with pin-dot thread embellishment for $6.39. They are a beautiful find to carry me through the rest of Winter. Then there was the matter of the $69 cropped jeans with a rolled hem, perfect for Spring / Summer for $12.00 after the discount! In the end, I redeemed a $5 Gap Rewards and paid a total of $13.39 out of pocket. Holla!! How did you do? xoxo •Nancy-Lee

A LUSH•ous Post-Holiday Haul.

+Franci and I met up at +Westfield Valley Fair the Friday +Victoria's Secret launched the Semi-Annual Sale. Also on the to-do list was +LUSH Cosmetics and the +Gap.

So what does one buy when they have a $25 Gift Card burning a hole in their pocket and all of the Christmas Buy 1 Get 1 Free goods are gone? Everything else! This was one of my favourite +LUSH Cosmetics hauls - because I bought 3 new-to-me things - and I spent a total of $26.54, so my gift card covered all but a little sales tax.!!

My 100% Pure Cyber Monday Haul.

Click to enlarge for detail.

2014 was a much more conservative year for my Black Friday - Cyber Monday spending. In 2013, I made an insane 17 purchases but this year it was only 1, a +100% Pure Cyber Monday haul. Taking advantage of their 10 specials for $10 I grabbed 2 trios of nail polish, 1 trio of Olive Oil Soaps and a 2 For 1 Body Scrub Trio, which I split a set - and the cost - with a friend.

Mani Monday: Butter London Scrubbers Review


I had high hopes for these Scrubbers by +butter LONDON.


Scrubbers, our 2-in-1 wipes, are designed to strip away yesterday’s mani and prep your nails for your next bespoke nail creation. All with one little wipe.

I was test driving the new shades that I purchased at +Nordstrom +Westfield Valley Fair and thought this would be the perfect way to test drive the remover from my GWP, too. Instantly I was impressed with the thickness of the pad; I knew it would be able to handle the same spot rubbing over the nail, break down a variety of lacquers. It did a great job of removing non-glitter formulas, however it did not stay moist enough to break down all 10 non-glittered nails. I had to add some of my own remover to the pad so I could finish the last 3. I feel it's more realistic to use 1 Scrubbers per hand, and at 10 pads for $10, this could get expensive, quickly. Do I recommend them? Absolutely! They are perfect as an on-the-go remover or emergency packettes but I'm not going to make them my every time remover because of the monthly cost; I would need 3-4 boxes. I rate Scrubbers 4 solid stars out of 5 and will purchase a full box to have on hand. xoxo •Nancy-Lee
