Stores like Saks are offering discounts as steep as 70% off, and you just might be surprised at how many parking spots are still available at your nearest Target or WalMart on the weekends.

There are some fabulous giveaways, opportunities, shopportunities, and discounts happening online, so allow me to share a few with you!

Beam is run by two Brazilian sisters, Andrea and Liza, who focus on providing their clients with a peaceful place to have the procedure done, and an education on hair removal.

MAC Cosmetics is offering 25% off their holiday kits — wonderful news for a bella like me who’s been eyeing that Charming Garnet. But I think I might wait till the Mineralize Eye Shadows get a little cheaper. I love the colors!

For my jewelry loving bellas, I got you 20% off of jewelry purchase at Aquababie. Some of those jewelry sets are bangin’!

And last but certainly not least, the bella behind Koi Creative Studio would love to offer Afrobella readers a 20% holiday discount at her Etsy.com store. Sounds like a great time to score those turquoise and coral dangle earrings! Your 20% discount will appear when they check-out via paypal.com. Use the code “afrobella”.
