Sephora is my Tiffany's

Remember Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, going to Tiffany's when life got too hard and she felt like nothing bad could ever happen to her there?  I just realized Sephora is like that to me.


Last week I had a work meeting that I was super nervous about.  I arrived at the location a little early and there was a big Sephora on the corner so I went in there to kill some time and also because I knew it would calm my nerves!  I even got to touch up my makeup a bit prior to my meeting (the Too Faced Sweethearts blush was on display!)  After that I felt calmer and ready to go!  


So different from my first ever visit to a Sephora years and years ago...I was new to makeup then and had no idea what I was doing!

Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

Oh what a sweet sentiment! It's so nice to hear that the store has that sense of comfort for you.  I totally get that too. Anytime I'm in a mall or area with a Sephora, that's the first place I'll head towards Smiley Happy

Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

@keely -- yes!  a sense of comfort is the perfect wording!  Smiley Happy  when I was little, everytime I was in a mall I'd make a beeline to the bookstore, but these days it's definitely Sephora.

I think my debit card agrees with you. lol.

Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

Agreed!  Anytime I walk into a Sephora or an Ulta I feel so peaceful- like I'm in my second home!  Smiley Happy

Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

I know what you mean. For me, I think it's because after shopping at Sephora a few times -- each time going through different brands and tons of product reviews, one gets familiar with the brands, and that sense of familiarity can be quite calming. I also tend to associate beauty with scenes in nature, and beautiful people with that air of elegance. So, being in a beauty store naturally makes me not be jittery and crazy about life's details for a just a little while.


Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

Oh my gosh, drrragon, me too! 


With Sephora though, I can actually test products out , get free samples, and afford to buy things some of the time!! Yay!

Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

Sephora is my safe haven Smiley Happy it's that place that when people say "go to your happy place"...that's where I go;figuratively and physically Smiley Wink

Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

Sephora is one of my happy places.  I can easily kill time in there or Ulta.  However, I also like going to Petsmart, especially since I haven't been able to volunteer much lately.  Smiley Sad   However, I go see the critters whenever I can.  Of course, I also browse stuff for my furry family members.  I'm convinced that Sally knows what a Petsmart bag is lol.

Re: Sephora is my Tiffany's

I totally get that feeling. You know in yoga when they tell you to go to a peaceful secret garden? Now I feel like I would totally end up going to a Sephora store. Smiley Tongue
