    Rebecca Minkoff Endless Summer Sale

    Tomorrow we slip into full-fledged Labor Day Sale mode – seriously, do you know how many emails I have piling up in my in-box?! mindboggling – so let’s slip in one more fun for the heck of it sale tonight: the Rebecca Minkoff Endless Summer Sale!

    The sale lasts through the end of the day Friday, September 2, 2011. All purchases are considered final. Shipping is free on $100+ purchases.

    Rebecca Minkoff is one of those brands that I absolutely drool over. I am dying to own something – anything – from RM but haven’t yet pulled the trigger. When I’m a millionaire I anticipate that my entire handbag wardrobe will be filled with Rebecca Minkoff originals. Until then, the sale will have to do.

    We’re moving in a new season but my obsession with metallics isn’t fading. This Rebecca Minkoff Bronze Puzzle Embrace is amazing. Originally $295, it’s now on sale for $178.

    Rebecca Minkoff pouches are always cute, like this “Unemployed” Pouch. Wouldn’t it be a fun gift for a gal just heading off to college? Originally $55, it’s now on sale for $30.

    If you enjoy Rebecca Minkoff items anywhere near as much as I do, this sale is worth a peek.

  5. Daily Deal of the Day: Free Nail Polish from SaveMore

    Free Nail Polish

    If you’re new to SaveMore, they have another great deal available today that will get you a FREE bottle of nail polish!

    Right now $7.50 will get you a $15 voucher to Fabulous Nails. You’ll also receive free shipping on your Fabulous Nails purchase. If you are new to SaveMore, you will receive an instant $10 account credit to Fabulous Nails, which would make this deal completely free!

    Now here’s the thing – I’m not familiar with Fabulous Nails, but apparently their nail polish costs $15 per bottle, which is absolutely absurd. The only way I would purchase from this company is using this voucher where you get one bottle for free and it will also ship to your house for free. If you don’t have credits in your SaveMore account then I would probably skip this deal. Sure, the $7.50 would bring the price of one bottle about on par with a bottle of OPI or Essie, but I recommend just buying one of those because you’ll know what you’re getting for the cost.

    Don’t get me wrong – if you have credits this is a great deal. I love free nail polish. :)

  8. Flirty Aprons Sale: Get a Sassy Black Apron for Just $9.95

    Leave a Comment

    I’ve waxed poetic in this space before about my love for Flirty Aprons, and now they’re having a HUGE sale on the Sassy Black Apron above, so I just had to share it with you.

    Normally the Sassy Black Apron is $34.95, but right now you can get an “irregular” Sassy Black Apron for just $9.95. It’ll have the same look and style, but instead of two layers of fabric, your apron will only have 1. I’m not sure this is an error that would even be recognizable.

    Note that this sale is only only this style of apron at this time.

    This is the exact same apron I have at home and I absolutely love it.
