I had a fantastic time in Vegas at Cosmoprof. My feet were killing me from all the walking, and the heat hit as high as 122 degrees while driving there, but it was well worth it! I actually got to meet the owners of some of the companies I use as vendors (waves hi to Karen), scouted out some potential new items (I'm testing them now), and finally got to meet some of my favorite beauty bloggers (waves another hi to Jen, Lianne, Michael, and Shannon).
I never noticed how badly I needed some time off until after I got to Vegas and actually relaxed! It was so cool to be able to sit by the pool sipping a pina colada. Of course, attending the show cost next to nothing compared to the cost of everything else! Pina Coladas: $10 each. Large mocha in the am to get me kick started: $6.25 each (averaging at least two each morning). Average price of a steak: $36 (a la carte, of course). Tickets to Blue Man Group: $105 each with the Costco discount. Daily charge for internet access: $14.95 per day. Total spent: I don't want to know!
How many of you waited and said to yourself, "Heck, I'll hold off ordering since it's not going to ship for a week anyway"? I lied on the website, not knowing how bad the pile of waiting orders may have been, and would have rather have quoted a later shipping date and delivered early than the other way around. All orders placed have been shipped out today. Go me! For those of you who chose to wait, making it a little less of a nightmare to return to, I'll reward you for it. From now until Sunday night at midnight, I'm offering a FREE SHIPPING special. On any order of at least $20 placed before midnight CST, enter the code patience in the "redeem code" box upon checkout, and I'll ship anywhere in the world FIRST CLASS MAIL on my dime. The software has it's limitations, and will give you free shipping with the correct code regardless of the method you choose. NOTE: should you choose Priority Mail and use the coupon code, it's going to still get shipped First Class mail.
This isn't a very long time offer (I wasn't gone all that long either), so get your order of $20 or more placed before midnight CST on Sunday, July 26th!
