Believe it or not, I go to Walgreens to pick up some of my fashion accessories and there are a few unknown tips that every woman should know in getting products at Walgreens. Everyone associates Walgreens as a place to get your prescription drugs, but there is more to it if you shop the aisles. After your shopping, there is also a survey you can visit that gives you a chance to win $3000 cash prize at www.wagcares.com paid in the form of a check.
Tip 1 – Hollywood Fashion Tape
These tapes are a life saver and a novel invention. If you need to keep your bra straps up, blouses in place, stick revealing necklines so they don’t drop. The takeaway tin box contains about 36 of these tapes and it makes it easy to carry in your bag and use it anytime you need. It may not work on heavier clothing but they are fairly stick and even sometimes hard to remove from the skin.
Hollywood Fashion tape
Tip 2 – Hair Accessories
There are plenty of different style hair accessories to choose from at Walgreens. The Revlon Couture Hair Accessory Stone Barrette is one of my favorite hair accessory that helps me keep my hair in place and still look stylish and traditional.
Tip 3 – Makeup
A great place to get makeup products on the go. If you need a lipstick, eyelash or other makeup items, Walgreens is a great place to grab some of these items. From the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Mousse to the IMAN Perfect Eyeshadown Pencil to the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation, there is something for every woman.
Fund your purchases with WagCares survey
And when you finish shopping, don’t throw away that receipt. It has a survey code and password you need to participate in the $3000 WagCares with an invitation to visit www.wagcares.com survey online. If you fill in the survey and complete the survey, you will be eligible to participate in the WagCares sweepstakes survey and you can stand a chance to win $3,000 for your shopping spree. Then check back for the WagCares sweepstakes winners list at the wagcares.com website.

Christian Louboutin fans alert! The famous red-soled stilettos will make their way int Gilt.com on Wednesday, April 08, 2009 at noon, EDT. You know what that means! It’s a crazy online sample sale again from Gilt and you can be a part of the madness. See, you have to be invited to be an exclusive member of Gilt.com and we’re inviting you to have the privileges, but for those who might still wonder how Gilt works… we’re gonna explain it to you.
The simplest thing you can think about Gilt is that it’s an online sample sale. You’ll be competing with other buyers, but without all the tugging and the queuing. Because it’s done online, all you have to do is check out upcoming sales and the stuff that are currently on sale -which will be informed to you through e-mail every single day, make your purchase quickly (before anybody else gets it) and wait for your thing to arrive. But to enjoy all the privileges, as we mentioned before, you’ll have to be invited to sign up for FREE. That’s where we come in. We’re inviting you to become a Gilt member.
Go straight HERE, fill out your details and start enjoying the Gilt shopping experience.
Again, as a member of Gilt, you’ll receive daily notifications for upcoming sales and current sales -which you can put in your Outlook calendar. Remember: every sale up in Gilt is only for limited time (as they only got exclusive limited items), so you have to hurry up if you see something you like.
So, back to the Christian Louboutin sale, this is the famous shoes’ debut in Gilt. We’re hoping more will come and we’ll be here spreading the news (and getting some for ourselves if you don’t hurry up. LOL).
The Christian Louboutin sale will be up on Wednesday, 08 April 2009 at noon EDT. Be there.
