Major VS Panties Deal for Valentine’s Day

Major VS Panties Deal for Valentine’s Day

I may live in a tiny studio apartment with negative storage space, but a whole heck of a lot of it involves undies. If you are planning on loving yourself tomorrow — whether or not someone else is as well — what a good excuse to treat yourself to a pretty awesome sale! Right now Victoria’s Secret is offering a free pair of panties with a bra purchase. (i.e. it’s sort of like free, you really have no excuse). Use code CUPID to get a free pair of Lace-trim Cheeky Panties, or code CHEEKSTER for a free pair of Lace-trim Mini Cheekster PINK panties ($10) with any bra purchase. Plus code SHIPBRA gets you free shipping, but only through Valentine’s Day 2014! And the ones pictured above? I want them. All of...

Free Shipping Day: Shopping For People Who Actually Know What They are Doing

Free Shipping Day: Shopping For People Who Actually Know What They are Doing

I’m not a fan of Black Friday. In theory, it’s awesome — who doesn’t like a day of sales? But I loathe the symbolism behind it — following a day of being grateful for what you have by stampeding strangers to get a bunch of stuff you don’t actually need. I’m more into Cyber Monday, as a rule. But I believe that your best deals can be found by being vigilant. By calmly waiting — much like a police stake out — and making your capture at the right time. Sales come and go, and some happen when least expected. But many are happening right now. Free Shipping Day, which is tomorrow, is largely for the so-called procrastinators. But it’s also for those of us to like to shop a little along the way and pounce when...

Are Daily Deals Sites on Borrowed Time?

Are Daily Deals Sites on Borrowed Time?

Every morning, I scour my various daily deals emails — and I’ve found some amazing deals on things I didn’t even know I wanted (and probably didn’t need). But is the bubble about to burst? Forrester Research recently released a report, U.S. Interactive Marketing Forecast, 2011 to 2016, that predicts the end of the daily deal craze. The report says growth in spending by businesses in other categories will “kill off” the daily deals category. I don’t know much about finance (a look at my bank account would prove that) – but isn’t a recession such as ours the best time for such deals to prosper? I don’t understand! Forrester Research analyst Shar VanBoskirk says in the report, “Consumers will grow so...

‘Hair’ I Am…

‘Hair’ I Am…

Welcome to Aly-tude…my own personal Sex and the City. Except, well, I don’t own any $400 shoes. (Yet). And don’t tend to have one-night-stands with men I met at martini bars while sipping cosmos. Though, I do indeed appreciate a good martini. And a good man. However, such is not what is on my mind at the moment. Today’s welcome topic though is one of Nirvana. (Not the band.) For years, I’ve been a little bit of a hair-care aficionado. I had my first hair straightening when I was in grade school. My mom brought home this pink box of something called “Curl Free”, which smelled terrible and resulted in red, bleeding scars on my scalp. It made my hair straight though, something I wanted so terribly. I had been cursed with...
