Reminder: It’s the Last Day to Pick an October Kindle First Selection

Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to choose one of the October Kindle First Selections for free! Amazon will release a new batch of books tomorrow!

With the Kindle First program, Amazon Prime members can download one FREE pre-release book per month. Each month Amazon makes a selection of four different titles available.

Here are the October Kindle First book selections:

The Fire Seekers

The Fire Seekers by Richard Farr – The time of our immortality is at hand. An undeciphered language in Crete. A rash of mysterious disappearances, from Bolivia to Japan. An ancient warning at the ruins of Babel. And a new spiritual leader, who claims that human history as we understand it is about to come to an end. Seventeen-year-old Daniel Calder’s world falls apart when a freak accident brings personal tragedy—and he discovers there’s a link between the accident and a wildly successful new cult, the Seraphim. Catapulted into a violent struggle for humanity’s past and future, he’s not even sure who the enemy is, or if he’s battling a phantom that doesn’t exist. But as Daniel puts his life on the line, he is forced to conclude that our very survival as a species will depend on who, and what, we choose to believe.

The Glassblower

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning – In the village of Lauscha in Germany, things have been done the same way for centuries. The men blow the glass, and the women decorate and pack it. But when Joost Steinmann passes away unexpectedly one September night, his three daughters must learn to fend for themselves. While feisty Johanna takes a practical approach to looking for work, Ruth follows her heart, aiming to catch the eye of a handsome young villager. But it is dreamy, quiet Marie who has always been the most captivated by the magic—and sparkling possibilities—of the craft of glassblowing. As the spirited sisters work together to forge a brighter future for themselves on their own terms, they learn not only how to thrive in a man’s world, but how to remain true to themselves—and their hearts—in the process.

Bazinga Pajama Bottoms

While I don’t watch Big Bang Theory, it is my dad’s favorite show on TV. He watches the new episodes and records the reruns and enjoys quoting the characters.

Possible Free $5 Etsy Credit for New Users

$5 Etsy Credit


I just placed an order on Etsy (yep, it’s not even 9 a.m. and I’m already shopping) and at the end of the transaction I was given the option of sharing $5 Etsy credits with friends!

Per the fine print, it appears that the credit can be used by anyone that has not yet placed a purchase from Etsy or anyone that is new to the site, so if you count yourself in that group: here’s a free $5 to spend at Etsy!

If you click on the link you should get a screen like the one I posted above. I don’t think you have to spend the credit right this second… I believe it gets saved to your Etsy account and should be available whenever you want to shop!

First Look: A PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box Sneak Peek!

PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box Sneak Peek: Clare V. Clutch

The second annual PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box was announced last week, and today we’ve got our first sneak peek at an item that will be included!

A Signature Clare V. Foldover Leather Clutch ($220 value) will be included in every box and I have to say that I am now VERY tempted to pick up this limited-edition box. I’ve become a bit obsessed with Clare V. since splurging on the Clare V. Maison Messenger Bag a couple of months ago! My bag is made of the world’s softest leather and I expect the same of this clutch!

The PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box has been curated by Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing and POPSUGAR Editor in Chief Lisa Sugar. This special box costs $250, although the price has almost been met with just the addition of this clutch! Last year’s PopSugar Must Have Neiman Marcus Box contained approximately $500 worth of luxury items.

If you’re interested in grabbing this luxury subscription box I highly recommend doing so soon. The box will ship in mid-November and a limited number of boxes are available.

Allure Sample Society: First Box for $1

Here’s an awesome deal I just found buried in my inbox: You can get your first box from Allure’s Sample Society for just $10!

To take advantage of this offer enter code “5FORYOU” at checkout. This offer is valid through December 31, 2014 and is only offered to those who are not and have never been Sample Society subscribers in the past.

Note: If you only want to receive the one discounted box then you need to be sure to cancel as soon as your first box arrives otherwise you will continue to be charged $15 + tax per month for the subscription.

I used to subscribe to Sample Society way back in the day and it was always one of my favorite boxes. They included 5 great products in the box every month! The only reason I cancelled my subscription was because I was just receiving too many beauty sample boxes and I had to draw the line somewhere.
