Lazy shopping: David Yurman sample sale and Beauty Week at Saks and Neiman Marcus

In terms of shopping, I've been a very, very good girl for the last two months, refraining (for the most part) from all the clearances and sales. But my birthday is Saturday, and I'm itching to spend some money, so here are three events that are tempting me.

I've always wanted one of his rings, so it may be time finally to treat myself to one at the David Yurman Friends & Family Sale. No word on discounts (according to Madison Avenue Spy, they're usually around 30-60% below retail), but on the first day of the sale, 10% of proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You'll find me there right after work, hopefully with a sparkly blue stone on my right-hand ring finger. 2/28-3/3; 3-8 Th, 10-7 F-Sat, 11-5 Sun; the Altman Building, 135 W. 18th St. (6th & 7th Aves.).

I'll admit, I'm a huge sucker for beauty gifts with purchase, so I will also head over to Saks for their  Beauty Week event. Spend $100 and you'll receive a sample-filled tote; if shopping online, use code BEAUTY5C and get free shipping too (through 3/4).

Not to be outdone, Neiman Marcus is also hosting a Beauty Event online and in stores through 3/3; unlike Saks, they're more forthcoming about their tote and samples, free with a $125 purchase:

  • ClĂ© de Peau BeautĂ© Le Coton, 5 sheets 
  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, .14fl oz/4mL 
  • Kiehl’s Since 1851 Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream, .25fl oz/7mL 
  • Molton Brown Patchouli & Saffron Body Wash, 1 fl oz/30mL 
  • Oribe Shampoo & Conditioner for Beautiful Color, .3fl oz/9mL each 
  • Robert Piguet Mademoiselle Piguet Eau de Parfum, .034fl oz/1mL 
  • Tom Ford Beauty Black Orchid Eau de Parfum, .05fl oz/1.5mL 
  • Valentino Valentina Assoluto Eau de Parfum Intense, .05fl oz/1.5mL
I haven't yet decided where I'm going to buy it, but I do know I'll be treating myself to the delicious Tom Ford Santal Blush. Happy birthday to me, indeed...
