Did you all have a nice Valentine's Day? I hope so! If I had gone out for dinner yesterday this is what I would have worn. A casual dress paired with some spicy tights! Ummm, Spanx, where have you been my whole life?? You hug me in allllll the right places. But D. and I decided to keep V-Day low-key this year, for the first time in the (almost) six years we've been together. No gifts and we stayed in. He made me a delicious dinner, we exchanged love letters (as if we were in the sixth grade!) and then curled up on the couch with Kitty and watched a few episodes of a show we're obsessed with right now on Netflix: Breaking Bad. It's so good! I love Walter White almost as much as I love Don Draper. It was exactly how I wanted to spend Valentine's Day with my guy : ). Earlier in the evening, however, I took advantage of another great Sephora deal. (You know how I love my Sephora deals!)

Exclusive to Beauty Insiders: if you spent $35.00 on any Sephora product yesterday, you received a complimentary Valentine's Day set of mini's featuring NARS products: Bronzing Powder in Laguna, Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base and Liquid Illuminator in Orgasm. So I bought a moisturizer (more to come on that in another post) and got all this! Damn I love deals! I'm excited to try these. Did anyone else take advantage of this bonus? And does anyone else love Spanx as much as I do??

It would be nice if you posted about the Sephora deals on the day of the deal instead of always telling us a day late

Your Valentine's sounds a lot like mine - we usually go low key because our wedding anniversary is Feb 25 so we celebrate that instead (I can't believe we've been together for 11 years though). And, yeah, I'm with you on the Spanx. And Skinny Girl shapewear...love that brand too.

And, regardless of where you wore it to, this outfit is really cute - love the jacket.

Anonymous: If you're a Beauty Insider, you should be getting emails from Sephora that notifies you of every single deal they have. I don't advertise it on my blog because not everyone is a Beauty Insider. However, I can definitely tweet about the deals on the day of. Thanks

LOVE the outfit! You look so pretty! that sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day, that's how I would do it too :)

I never buy from Sephora because I'm too lazy and use the same makeup every day XD But I always get the emails and contemplate getting something.

BBBEEEEEEEAUTY! Love your lippy! Wow these are stunning photos. Sounds like you had a lovely Valentine's Day!

Patricia said...

This makes me so upset! I actually didn't know about this deal and totally went to Sephora yesterday and got the Urban Decay naked2 pallet and I did NOT get this Nars deal nor did they even mention it. (I went to Sephora south gate). I would have loved this.

Anyways.

I love love love those tights.

Cee said...

Sounds like you had a perfect Valentine's Day - ours was low-key, too, and that's exactly what I wanted. The look you put together for the occasion is gorgeous, though. The shade of your scarf suits your skintone so beautifully!

I wish I had read my email from Sephora sooner, I love Nars and I missed out on the Valentine's Day bonus. Boo. Next time for sure!

xox,
Cee

Patricia said...

(and I totally get their emails and never got anything about that one)

Marie a la Mode said...

Patricia: Aww I'm sorry to hear that! They should have mentioned something when you were at the counter at least!

Tracy D said...

How did I miss this deal? You and your beautiful ring look gorgeous, happy belated Valentine's Day Marie!

So stunning Marie! I love all the different patterns in the look, they all work so well together. And so jealous about the Sephora deal - if I'd known, I would've been down there in a hot flash! I live for Nars products, they're amazing.
