This Canadian weekly, free private-sales beauty site is great – I first told you about Scarlet & Julia here. Since then, the company has expanded its scope to include a boutique side, with excellent brands such as Lipstick Queen, English Laundry, Ren and Nuxe Paris.
For Scarlet & Julia Black Friday, deals include 20% off everything on the boutique side, and on the private-sales outlet side, up to 70% off brands such as Stila, Babyliss Pro, Esthederm, Burberry and Chloé.
black friday deals: roots
Okay, so this isn't a beauty link, but I adore so much about Roots, and we've featured them on Beautygeeks many times (Roots leather is the best, better than so many big-name fashion designer leather products). I'm addicted to Roots Cabin Socks, for heaven's sake -- how odd is that? I'm especially drawn to the Cabin Collection for kids, and as far as I'm concerned, wrap a man up in something Roots-cosy, and I'm lost. And if you have a canine best buddy, omg, you need one of these.
For Black Friday and the entire weekend, Roots is offering 25% off all their merchandise, and they ship all across the globe. Go! Shop now! (Sure, I'd love more socks, thanks – can't have too many! And look at the great new Roots Cabin Sock shades and patterns! Best part: they come in baby and kid sizes too. *swoon*)
