Your Weekend Starts Now.

 U Village Bluemercury Laura Mercier expert Roxanne transforming me. I'll be back there tomorrow for another makeover and more Laura Mercier product.

Man, have I got the weekend of dreams planned for you. (And, it starts today!)

Summer is here (despite today's rain) and that means longer days and the relentless desire to get out and do things, meet people, look pretty. It's possible our entire city has some level of seasonal affective disorder. We pay the price in the dark and gloomy months; but this time of year is when we shine. So, as you are putting the final touches on your weekend plans, why not indulge in something for yourself recommended by your very own Seattle personal stylist?

 Your free gift today or tomorrow at the U Village Bluemercury with your purchase of 3 items or more. The image is big so you can see some of the goodness inside.

1. Laura Mercier event at Bluemercury.

A few days ago I visited Bluemercury to have my brows waxed. (I heart LeAnne, by the way. She's also the aesthetician who gave me that facial of dreams a few months ago.) Upon my visit I discovered the Laura Mercier event taking place today and tomorrow at the store. I'm a big Laura Mercier fan (hello primer with SPF 30!) and the lovely Roxanne is the brand expert who gave me a makeover while I was there. Today and tomorrow when you purchase 3 Laura Mercier items or more from the U Village store, you receive a jam-packed free gift. Naturally, it includes a cosmetic bag, a lovely opportunity to make use of my zillions of things to do with a free cosmetic bag list. Another added bonus.

Okay, so free gifts are awesome. Need a little more incentive to swing by the store? As it turns out, if you buy any three products from the brand on Friday or Saturday (which you are likely already doing to get the free gift), you can have a free 30 minute makeover, if staff are available. If you are risk averse, call ahead and book your appointment. I'm signed up to go back tomorrow.

In fact, anytime that you'd like a makeover, simply call ahead to schedule an appointment and purchase ANY three items from these store and your makeover is free. That's right. Free. During the Laura Mercier event, you'll be limited to that line, but the rest of the year, you can choose from anything in the store. 

 From our recent trip to Finland and Norway, a Justin Marx original. See it and more on display June and July at Velouria.

Tomorrow evening from 6-9PM enjoy our event at Velouria in Ballard during the Ballard Art Walk. You can't beat the restaurants in the neighborhood, so make an evening of it. Even better, make a purchase and you'll be entered to win a free Uber Wishlist, a $575 value. If you live outside the area, you can still enter to win. Just buy online with code: Poplin. Plus, 10% of all purchases tomorrow go to YouthCare's work to end youth homelessness locally. 

Once you look and feel beautiful, enjoy your Father's Day. Might I suggest visiting a beach for low tide this weekend? It's the perfect opportunity for tinted sunscreen with SPF. If you are still in need of a last minute Father's Day gift, visit Ian in Belletown. Mention Poplin for a 15% discount or shop online with code: Poplin. 

Off you go to your weekend of dreams. I can't wait to hear how it goes.
