Aside from seeing Idina Menzel in concert, this past weekend I spent a lot of time trying to learn CSS to work out some of the kinks in this new site design. When I first launched this site I didn’t know a thing about web design and now I know my way around pretty well but CSS still confounds me. Whenever I’m approached with a CSS issue I feel a bit like I did as a teenager anytime I had to solve an equation in trigonometry. Thus, I studied quite a few tutorials and asked for help on message boards and this site is close to being finished. (I think.)
Next time I really should:
- Not start an impromptu site design at 11 p.m. on a Thursday
- Hire a professional
Here’s a quick rundown of some of my favorite deals that are available today. Happy shopping!

It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere!
Last week I wrote a Club W review, sharing how much my husband and I love this service that delivers three new bottles of wine direct to our door each month. While I shared how you could save $13 off your first delivery (essentially a free bottle of wine), here’s an even better deal from Gilt City: Get your first Club W box for $25… including shipping! Normally you’d pay $45 per month ($39 for the wine + $6 shipping), so this $20 savings is a great way to see if Club W might be a good fit for you.
Keep in mind that you will likely need to cancel after receiving your first box as Club W is a subscription wine club. You can also skip months where there is no wine that interests you.
It’s Raining, It’s Pouring…
I don’t know what September showers bring, but there’s no doubt that rain boots are a great thing to have on hand in the fall! Right now you can grab a pair of colorful rain boots for less at Jane as they have a selection of boots on sale for just $21.99 each. Colors and sizes are limited, but you might get lucky and snag a fab deal!
