Weekend Rundown

Gap Striped Ponte Academy Blazer

I am absolutely in love with this Striped Ponte Academy Blazer. I loved the original blazers, but now I’m doubly striped smitten. The best part is that this blazer is already on sale – marked down to $69.99 from $88 – and you can save an additional 25% with code “GAP25” and bring the price down to $52.50. Not bad for a blazer that can get plenty of wear this winter, spring, and possibly even summer!


Girl Scout Thin Mint Cupcake from Crumbs

I feel like I have to share that as of today, Crumbs has a Girl Scouts Thin Mints Cupcake. Yes, they ship.


Target Addict reports that some items from the Prabal Gurung for Target Collection are ALREADY showing up on Ebay and the price gouging is out of control. You know what this means, right? If you want to check out the collection when it hits stores on February 10, you’ll want to get there early!

This is an oldie but goodie: One of my all-time favorite cold weather treats is this Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate from Eat Live Run. I make it at least once a week all winter long.

‘Tis the season for getting sick. According to Beauty Snob, this All-Natural Cold & Flu Elixir may help you ward off the flu … or at least recover quicker if it does strike.

Racked shares 5 tips to help you score big at the new Barneys Warehouse website. And speaking of – how excited are you that they’ve launched Barneys Warehouse, which makes these deals accessible to those of us not living in New York City?

These Floral Friendship Bracelets, which are made using real flowers, are too darn cute. Thanks to Oh Joy! for the inspiration.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Are you ready to shower your significant other/BFF/parents/whomever with love? We have shared gifts for him, gifts for her, even cheaper gifts for her, cards for your love, and cards for your BFF. So much love around here!

Giveaway Time: The Man Repeller Glossybox was awesome and we’ve got an extra! Deadline to enter is Monday.

For absolutely GORGEOUS mason jars, check out Megan’s post about Etsy seller Beach Blues. These jars will have you singing anything but the blues.


Steals and Deals

Heading to the mall this weekend? Shopping at Bath & Body Works? If you answered “yes” to both of those questions you’ll want to print this coupon that will get you a FREE item (your choice, up to a $14 value) with any $10 B&B purchase.

There’s a Two-Day Sale at Best Buy that runs through tomorrow, February 9, 2013. You’ll find some really great prices on electronics, like a $329 Toshiba Laptop, and a $99 camera (normally $259).

I didn’t even know there was an outlet section on the Charles David website, but apparently there is! If you shop the Charles David Outlet this weekend you can save an additional 25% on your purchase with code “EXTRA25”.

Apparently I missed this earlier, but Dorothy Perkins is offering 20% off full-priced shoes and boots through February 11, 2013. This means you can get these gorgeous glitter peep toe pumps for even less. (If you’re keeping track, that’s the third and final mention I’ll make of these shoes … at least until they go on sale!)

Do you want to get your Valentine something special from Fossil? If so, they’re offering FREE overnight shipping on all orders placed by 3 p.m. on February 13. I don’t necessarily recommend waiting that long to go shopping, but if you have to, Fossil is there to help you out.

We’re friends, so let me be honest with you. Shopping at Kohl’s without a coupon is just plain silly. Luckily, they have two coupons available right now AND you’ll earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend. Big spends should use code “HEART” to take 20% off every $100 you spend.  Everyone gets 15% off their purchase with code “YOU”.

Loehmann’s has a fun Valentine’s Day offer! Use code “LOEHLoves” at checkout to receive an additional 14% off everything on the site through February 17, 2013.

Enjoy FREE shipping on all purchases at Mango through February 11, 2013. (I am totally digging this Striped Sweater Dress – it’s only $39.99, and with free shipping I just might have to take the plunge…)

The Payless BOGO Sale is still taking place! Buy one pair of shoes and get a second for half off, with no limitations. Plus, send them to your local store and you won’t pay for shipping! (Over at Coveted I shared a fantastic pair of Christian Siriano Mint Mary Janes. They’re perfect for spring!)

Pomegranate has absolutely gorgeous table linens and kitchenware, and right now you can save big with a fab 50% off code! Use code “FEB50” to cut your order in half!

There are three fab freebies available at Sephora right now: Choose 1-of-4 Fragrance Sample Bags featuring 5 samples (Choose between Addictive, Chic, Casual and Playful) with any $25 purchase when you use code “IMPRESS”. Get a FREE Coach Poppy Nail Polish Trio with the purchase of any Coach fragrance when you use code “POPPYNAIL”, or get a FREE Juicy Couture LaLa Lip Gloss Trio + iPhone case with any Juicy Couture fragrance purchase when you use code “LALA”.

I wanted to write an individual post about this, but it appears I’m out of time today. Brides-to-be should check out the Bridesmaids Dresses at Target, most of which are currently 20% off! Saving your gals some money will likely make their week. Most dresses have been temporarily marked down to $55, but some cost as little as $24!

Three of my favorite things come together in one little offer from The Trend Boutique: a coupon – 20% off everything with code “TAKE20”, + FREE shipping + NO tax.

Enjoy 25% off jackets and handbags at Wilson’s Leather through February 10, 2013. No coupon code is necessary. Last year I reviewed two Wilson’s Leather jackets and I still wear them constantly. Reviews are here and here. They have tons of high quality coats and the prices are definitely reasonable. (And made even better when they’re 25% off.)

If you have some digital photos you’d like to turn into prints, act now on this offer from York Photo: You’ll get 60 free prints when you enter code “FREESIXTY” at checkout. You should be able to get an extra 40 prints just for registering, too! Just pay shipping.
