We just got back from the market -- The Cosmetic Market, that is.

But it gets even better. The Cosmetic Market is not for makeup junkies only. Fun holiday gifts like this darling clutch made from recycled candy wrappers, food packages, soda labels, and newspapers, as well as gourmet food and books can be purchased there, too.The Cosmetic Market has been receiving rave reviews for their top-notch customer service and customers are loving that the shipping is FREE for orders over $75.
Although we didn't run into Jessica Simpson, Nicole Kidman, Miley Sirus, Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, or Michelle Branch at the market, you may run into one of them in the Nashville store as they stop by to pick up their favorite beauty essentials.
GWBBB readers are being offered a site-wide discount of 20 percent through January 15, 2009. Just enter 1girl at checkout.

Traveling with your newborn or infant this holiday season? Hubbies pay attention! DwellBaby introduces the Weekender bag ($265).
Extra roomy. Easy to clean. Cute designs. Wait. Why is this just for mommies?
I used it on my recent Chicago excursion to house everything from make-up to pajamas. I tend to overpack, so, of course, I needed more than one bag. I mean, c'mon, I was going to be gone two full days.
Back to what it's really for...My bestie with a little one said she would love it for stashing monitors, extra diapers, and clothing, and she could fit as much as a week's worth of needed items in it. Perfect. Who wants to be gone longer than a week anyway?
Add more uniformity by picking up the diaper tote and travel case. We always want to look put together amidst an accident, like no formula or running late to the airport.
Check out Dwell's other lines including Home, Kids, and Decor. Designs are modern and cutting edge.
Jamie has discovered a beauty product she won't leave home without: Anastasia's New Mini Brow Kit for women on the go!
Chic mommas have taken to Petunia Pickle Bottom accessories from Layla Grayce. The products are just as much fun, cutesy, and unique as the name implies.
The Petunia Pickle Bottom Clutch Glazed Parisian Pansy decorated with polka dots, intricate flower designs, and subtle embroidery, is something to covet this holiday season. Take it on a trip. Attach it to your stroller. Or use it as a clutch for that rare but appreciated date night with the hubby.
The clutch features lots of pocketing to store anything and everything, including multiple diapers.
The detachable wristlet strap is great to hang on a buggy or hang around your wrist to free up your hands.
The removable fold-out changing pad is a lifesaver when caught in a 'pickle' and there isn't a changing room nearby.
The wipey case keeps you looking stylish while doing your motherly duties, and the magnetic top closure will save you from embarrassing spills and stressful mommy moments.
Modern motherhood never looked so good.
