Neiman Marcus Shopping Spree!

I won a $500 beauty shopping spree at Neiman Marcus thanks to Charleston Girl at Best Things in Beauty and of course NM!  I was breathless for hours after I found out.  NM gave readers of Charlestongirl's blog, Best Things in Beauty, the cute gift below, and entered us in the shopping spree drawing.  The keyring's adorable, and I will use my notebook to catagorize lipsticks and glosses a la Twisted Knitter.

Best in Beauty Blogger Gift

I had so much fun this afternoon! I picked out a Tom Ford lipstick first, then headed straight for Le Metier de Beaute as soon as Lisa, the Le Metier representative, was free. She gave me one best makeovers ever. She's a doll! She used LM's Peau de Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe, followed by foundation and blush, then one of their new lipglosses. I was little doubtful about the Anti-Aging Complexe, but I loved the glow it gave me, so I bought everything as you can see below. I think Annalisa, from NM Public Relations and who escorted me throughout the department, may go back for a few LM items herself - and we will find the perfect red for you!

I will begin blogging these items with swatches soon.

Thanks again to Charlestongirl, NM, Lisa, and AnnaLisa who with great patience sweetly helped me gather my gifts this afternoon.  I had blast!


  1. Congratulations Ava!! What an awesome prize - I can just imagine your squeal of delight! You made some excellent choices. I can't wait to hear more about the Chanel lip gloss -- all of it is intriguing.

    And thanks for the shout out too!

  2. What a fantastic prize and you went to the counter I'd be going to too (Le Metier). I can't wait to read about the Face Palette.
