I am still alive! I haven't forgotten about this blog!
Sorry I haven't been able to do much updates with my blog lately. I just wrap up with a crazy deadline and my boss flew to China for a presentation of a project that I have been working on intensively the past 2 weeks...
Intensively meaning 80+ hours a week... not much sleep and my biological clock is all messed up!!
And you don't want to know how pissed off I got during the crunch time...
Anyways, to reward my hard work, my love got a little something...
*Drum roll* plzzzz~
It's La Mer!
But of course, everything has to pass under the strict scrutiny of the Queen of the Deals, aka, fishball!
Saks Fifth Avenue had a set of GWP for a $300 La Mer purchase that includes a sample sized La Mer creme, eye cream, serum, and facial wash.
I had my eyes set on a value set in Saks but as I was checking out, I was told that the GWP is sold out.
But I won't give up.
After searching a few more deparment store, I landed on Bergdorf Goodman:
Basically the same set with the exception there is a free pouch and they are giving away a body cream instead of a facial wash.
However, Bergdorf Goodman doesn't carry any La Mer value sets, so I need to buy indivdual items.
But I also realized that since our state doesn't have Bergdorf Goodman store, my order will qualify as tax free!
Plus I dig out a free shipping code too!
And I notice they are doing a beauty promo event, spend $500 and get $75 free. I had a hard time deciding what other La Mer products I want other than an eye cream and signature creme de La Mer (since the GWP has it all) I landed on a Chanel foundation and eyeshadow.
I would have spend about the same price with Saks, but now I save on taxes and shipping, plus getting 2 Chanel items... emmm, did I score a deal here?
