Gifts without Purchase

Gift with Purchase. I'm pretty sure that phrase is the bane of every parent of a teenage girl.

Cosmetics companies love to bribe impressionable young women with free perfume and make up when they buy one of their products. The victims of this ruse are instantly identifiable by the overwhelming odor of Eau de Whatever and the ample application of the perennially popular 8th Grade Blue eye shadow. I can still remember the look of horror on my father's face when I emerged from the bathroom the day after my annual GWP super sized box of makeup was opened.

Today's post is just a little heads up about a quickie blog tour that a few of the teachers at VK Live are putting together next week. There will be gifts. No purchase required. Join us.

I still look for Clinique GWP deals. Since I use their eye cream and moisturizer anyway, why not get a little treat to play with? Besides, they come with great cosmetics bags that are perfect for holding knitting notions!

They do have great bags! And eye cream too.

I loooove GWPs. I just wish yarn or needles or whatever came that way!
