Sephora Just Announced An Epic Flash Sale
Claire Miles - March 21, 2020


By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

With everything going on in the world currently due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more retailers are temporarily closing their stores. That means online shopping has never been more welcome or a more popular option! Want some good news? You can save some cash too while shopping in the comfort of your own home. Score!

Ulta Beauty’s biannual sale kicked off March 15th, and now Sephora is stepping up with a sale of its own. The Oh Snap! sale will feature top-selling beauty products discounted up to 50% for one day at a time. Once products sell out or the 24 hour period has ended, you won’t be able to get the deal so act fast!

Sephora’s community board has posted a preview of the upcoming deals so you can get a shopping plan of action set up. There will be a few days when nothing is marked down (March 18. 21. 24. 28, and 29). But other than those specific dates, you can expect a major markdown until April 4.

Beauty Insiders has pointed out that Oh Snap! is pretty much price-matching 21 Days of Beauty. Similarly to Ulta Beauty, the sale is taking place both in-store and online, but it’s really important to do the responsible thing and take social-distancing measures. Plus, from now until March 31, you can get free shipping on every Sephora order! Happy home shopping!
