It’s not you. It’s all of us. After a holiday, a short vacation or just a crazy night out we feel sad it’s over. And you have every right to feel that way–who doesn’t like a couple of days off anyway- but there is a quick and easy way to get over it and cheer up! Just do some online shopping and your post-holiday sadness will be absolutely gone! I swear to my brand new sandals! A new tee, a pair of shoes, a huge hair bow, or even a new mug for your morning coffee, can absolutely make your week (or your day, for the shopaholics among us). If you think my idea will uplift you but give your wallet the blues then you are wrong. You can brighten up while saving big time, but only if you choose the right store, in other words Hot Topic. The place to be when you want to update your wardrobe, your flat or even your fragrance, while saving with unbeatable discounts plus our Couponology exclusive $10 off Hot Topic promo code. That easy!

swimYou might be surprised but I decided to start with accessories rather than clothes. To make matters a bit stranger, I also decided to start from summer essentials–a new pair of sunglasses, a hat, or maybe a swimsuit. But before I start, let me share my speculation. May is just around the corner, and that means that summer is almost here. No, it’s not that we don’t have much time left, it’s just that even preparing for summer can make you as happy as looking at your calendar and realizing it’s the 1st of June. My favorite for the season is matching Misfits gear. So, for her, I chose the Misfits Fiend Skull Flounce Swim Top for less than $20, resonating the latest flounce (or fringe) bikini top trend. For him, I chose the Misfits Swim Trunks, lightweight and simple to make enjoying your favorite watersport that much easier! sunglasses

When you prepare your daylight outfits, there is one thing you can’t leave aside, your sunnies. And as it happens with most women (and men in some cases) we have different ones for the beach, the pool, the party, the working days, the car, vacations and so on. For that very reason, you can’t spend a fortune on every single pair. You can do it on one or two (perhaps the pair you bring on a cruise vacation), but not on all of them. And in comes Hot Topic, to rescue you from the embarrassment of having one hundred selfies with the same sunnies! With less than $13 you can get two pairs that are super fun and in vogue (I would never want you posing with last season’s styles)! For example, you can get the Mint Clear Front Retro Sunglasses for her, in an all-time classic design and the hottest summer color: mint. For those looking to adopt a trend-setter attitude (and pose of course), opt for the Pink Glitter Round Sunglasses, the season’s round and bright must-have! For the guys, I picked up 2 simple, classic styles. First up are the Black Soft Touch Aviator Sunglasses and the second, much more modern option, the Two Tone Faux Wood Retro Sunglasses. You can get both of them for less $16. Unbelievable, huh?

After browsing Hot Topic’s summer accessories and Couponology deals, don’t tell me you aren’t ready to jump in your car and drive to the nearest beach. Just don’t forget the sunnies!

We love giving gifts, no doubt on that. But there are these moments that making a decision on a gift can give you a very hard time. She might not like bright colors or he might not like color red. He already has this action figure and she had enough of the blonde dolls. She is too old for a lipstick and he is too old to care about protecting his iPhone. Omg! I’m already exhausted just on the thought of it. And after a lot of failed attempts to find that perfect gift, I’ve come up with a “place” that honestly, changed my gift-giving life! And the name of it: 1800Baskets.com. Who would resist a basket filled with choco treats, his/her favorite wine or deli products, top quality beverages or – if you are more into no-edible gifts – a basket with beautiful spa products? No one! And which gift giver would be able to resist to a Couponology exclusive 15% off sitewide 1800Baskets promo code? Same here! But since the choices are, honestly, endless let me give a helping hand.

for her

For Her

No matter what’s the age, the style, the attitude, the status or the taste, women are much easier to please with a gift. I think it is part of our nature to fall in love with…gifts! But at the same time, we are way more choosy than men on the items we like, especially if it us that have the last word. So don’t you ever try to please a woman if you are not 100% sure that you know her taste. The only way you will succeed is to get her an elegant spa gift basket and if she doesn’t like it, then there is something wrong going on. Spa means adornment and adornment means woman. So, on the search of the best gift for her you can absolutely stop at the Warm Vanilla Relaxation Spa Basket that includes spa-quality products that will make her day! And apart from the gorgeous body lotion, scrub, shower gel and much more things that will make her spend 2 hours in the bath – instead of her usual 1 hour – don’t forget that we pay attention to the packaging as well, so I bet this basket will stay in her bathroom forever!

for himFor Him

Now, when it comes to men, I usually think of something that has to do with technology or with alcohol and men’s nights. I don’t know if it’s my hubby’s fault that I perceive it that way but I do. And at the end of the day, I know anyway that from my brother to my grandpa, none of them would say no to a good wine- or anything alcoholic together with some gourmet snacks. So, when I’m busy enough to browse for the best gift for a male friend, colleague or family member I instantly think of a wine basket. My latest purchase? The Thoughts of Spring Wine & Gourmet Gift Basket that includes a divine selection of gourmet snacks and two wines from Australia. Are you still wondering if he will love it? Of course he will, he will have to choose from cookies, cheese straws, crisps and more! And I’m sure his girlfriend, daughter, sister will be as happy as he will, because this one comes with a beautiful basket too.

For Babiesfor babies

It was just one month ago, that one of my best friends had her first baby boy! And since she was the first one among my girlfriends that had a baby, I couldn’t stay to a bouquet, or a piece of clothing, I wanted something special, huge that would stand out in her room. And I found exactly what I was looking for. The Deluxe Baby-Cakes Boy Essentials, which except for being really spectacular, it included all she needs for her baby prince – diapers, towel, bib and more newborn essentials. Just so you know, she is just lovin’ it!

That was just a tiny sample of what you can get from 1800Baskets.com. Just get online and I promise you’ll find countless gift ideas for your loved ones. But two more things before you go.

  1. Gifts can make someone’s day so you don’t have to wait for a birthday party, Easter, a graduation or a special occasion to offer them.
  2. Even something bought from one to one’s self is considered a gift, so go for it!

The 3 Best Swimsuit Styles for Mom

On April 17, 2014, in Featured Merchants, Spotlight, by Couponology
Guest post by Betty Pabon of SwimwearForMe.
mothers day sfm
As Mother’s Day quickly approaches and the weather gets warmer there is no better time of year to find the perfect swimwear gift to show your appreciation to the mother figure in your own life.  Perhaps you are planning a vacation with your mom or know of her future Summer plans to travel. Now is the time to find the perfect swimsuit to make her feel a little bit more confident and sophisticated at the beach or pool. At SwimwearForMe.com we listed the top 3 swimwear styles loved and praised by mothers. Combine these with the 25% off coupon code, or 70% off sale styles from Couponology, and you’ve got yourself a steal.   
 
Style 1: Classic One Piece
 
Whether you are at the local pool, water-park, resort, or tropical getaway, our one pieces are the perfect balance of fashion-forwardness with a hint of modesty. One piece suits are figure flattering in several different ways:  sweetheart necklines always provide great bust support, while halter v-neck swimsuits show off your curves, side ruching, fringe, ruffles, draping and built-in liners always help slim the torso and you won’t feel the need to tug or adjust your swimwear while having fun in the sun. Our suits are known for their comfort, lasting wear, and fit. You can never go wrong with a solid colored or bold printed one-piece swimsuit.
 
Style 2: Tankinis
 
Personalize your water ready look by mixing and matching with our versatile tankinis easily worn with shorts, skirts, or matching bikini bottoms. Diversify your look throughout the summer by pairing prints with solids. Give your look some flare, and dare to wear our trendy tribal and floral prints of the season. For the woman who wants a fun and carefree style without the bare all look of a traditional bikini, the tankini is your swimsuit must try this summer.
 
Style 3: Swimdress
 
No need for a cover-up here, our popular swimdresses allow for full coverage for the woman who wants a bit more slimming fit around the thighs and hips. The high empire waist to flared skirt from a print to solid black color visually slenderizes the mid-section, while enhancing your curves.
 
SwimwearForMe.com carries a wide selection of missy and plus size fashionable swimwear at unbeatable prices. Don’t forget to stock up on your favorite looks this Mother’s Day and enjoy your time with the mother figure in your life this holiday!

Luxury Gifts for Mom

On April 16, 2014, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

Mother’s Day: the day you are celebrating and honoring the most lovable woman in your life, your best girlfriend (no offense dad, I said girlfriend), and for that woman you can only think of the best–a beautiful gift that will make her jump for joy! But to show her how precious she is for you, you have to get her a luxurious, gorgeous gift she’d refuse to take off. Something that will accompany her all day long, through any season and under any circumstances; in other words, an elegant watch. Priceless and timeless, as your love for her. Oh! And wait, don’t make your own conclusion. You won’t have to spend a fortune on it, no. That’s why I’m here for, to help you find the best at the lowest prices, aka at TheWatchery.com. And trust me, I tried it last year, and it absolutely works, my mom just can’t say goodbye to her Tag even when she goes to bed. (Too bad for me because there is no chance I can “borrow” it for a day, or two!) And this year, you are luckier than I was because there is an amazing Mother’s Day up to 92% off & free shipping event happening at TheWatchery.com. Oh Lord! Right now, I wish I was a mom too. :)

1Glam Mom

If your mom is more of a Jackie lady, then I’d propose a piece that is as luxurious as possible but at the same time feminine, gorgeous and most of all, timeless. In other words, I’d propose my favorite Tag Heuer watch which is no other than the women’s Diamond Pink Textured Dial Stainless Steel which offers the unique combination of diamonds (girl’s best friend), pink (which color could express femininity best?) and quality (if it’s not stainless steel for a watch, then what it is?). You can now get this one of a kind piece while getting a 46% off discount. Yes, indeed! However, if your mom is more keen on gold tones than silver ones (same here, but the aforesaid watch is another story!), then you can go for the Michael Kors women’s White MOP & Silver Dial Rose Gold Tine Ion Plated Stainless Steel watch which comes with a 38% off discount. They are both adorable so don’t waste time, get any of them and she’ll be absolutely pleased! Oh! And don’t forget to add the $100 off sitewide The Watchery promo code at checkout because we want you to be pleased as well!

Sporty Mom

If your mom spends more hours at the gym or engaging in any athletic activity than you do (in women’s case, walking in the shopping mall can also be considered exercising!), then you should go for a more casual and sport-looking watch. In that case, I’d suggest the stunning Swiss Legend Neptune Ceramic White Diamond White MOP Dial White Silicone watch that comes with a 68% off discount. But trust me, it’s not the price-cut that matters here, it’s the diamonds, the silicone strap that allows for more casual outfits and the gold! This watch is just a must-have. Now, if you are looking for something less expensive, I picked a very nice piece for you; the Swiss Legend Women’s Neptune Beige Dial Beige Silicone that comes with an 84% off discount and promises to match with any outfit because of its super convenient color. Add the Couponology exclusive $20 off The Watchery promo code at checkout for an extra saving!

3Fashion Mom

If you are lucky enough to have a mom that can share her clothing and accessories with you (adorable situation), or better stated, if your mom has more magazine subscriptions on her iPad than you do, then you should go for something more flashy and unique. Something like the dazzling Swiss Legend Women’s Keramika White 341 Diamonds Pave Dial Cream High-Tech Ceramic in gold tone, with 116 diamonds (give me a sec, I just faded on the number) and a cream high-tech ceramic bracelet that adds a modern touch (not that it needs it, it’s already adorable), and last but not least, with an 86% off discount. And finally, if you want to make your mom look like she just jumped out of a fashion magazine’s page, then you should get her the Glam Rock Women’s SoBe Mood White Dial Yellow Leopard Genuine Leather watch in gold tone and a 58% off discount, together with the latest fashion trend: animal print.

All in all, you got a tiny bit of the way you can make your mom the happiest mom on earth. However, that was only just a small selection I made (I guess they are all my future possessions), so just get online at TheWatchery.com and choose the one that would suit your mom’s style and your wallet best!

Easter Greetings from Miles Kimball

On April 14, 2014, in Featured Merchants, Spotlight, by mprotonotariou

Personalized Welcome Sign With Seasonal PlaquesEaster is the best holiday ever! No doubt about it. Picture the scene: Spring has sprung, flowers are blossoming, and the family is gathered in a festive atmosphere. No need to mention the egg-citement from all the Easter chocolate and cookie treats on the table! However, what I love most about Easter is getting my hands on home decoration and of course – gift shopping! Correct me if I’m wrong, but is there anything more rewarding than the happy faces of your loved ones after they’ve opened their gifts or tasted your homemade desserts? Priceless feeling, indeed. And don’t hear them complaining about the so called Easter frenzy as if they hate to be part of it. The ugly truth is that they dye for colored eggs, Easter-inspired decoration and all of the sort because it simply makes them feel at home! They’re just too bored to get involved, so organization is a responsibility to carry on your shoulders as the official Easter Event Planner! The good news is that you don’t need to go on an Easter egg hunt to find great deals. You just need to visit Miles Kimball online and order everything you need from their fabulous collection of Easter items! As an experienced party planner, I must tell you that you should keep everyone happy (science talking here). First things first, Easter is dedicated to our cute little fellows craving for treats and gifts and secondly, to family and guests in order to offer them a welcoming atmosphere! So I would wisely advise you to:

Start From The Outside……

And create an inspirational atmosphere.  The goal is to make everyone speak out: “It smells like Easter spirit”. Your task will be a piece of cake if you choose the Polka Dot Easter Egg Yard StakePersonalized Welcome Sign With Seasonal Plaques hanging out of your main entrance. This personalized welcome sign will save you from a lot of holidays to come as it contains 10 hand-painted seasonal plaques of an excellent quality for every occasion! Pick the Easter eggs plaque to add some color to the main entrance and welcome all your guests in a festive mood. You can set an even more glorious background if you take advantage of your garden or any plants near the entrance: all you need is an Easter Egg Yard Stake and Spring will come to your yard! I personally love the Polka Dot and Jagged Stakes as they’re the most colorful of the collection! Find your favorite plant and stake these painted metal Easter yard pieces to add a pop of brightness and cheer, or simply place the stakes near the walkway for extra glam!

Now you need to think about the night time as well, as your efforts will go wasted if you don’t act smart. So if you want to keep a joyful atmosphere even during the night, consider of decorating a medium height tree or a green decorative plant with Easter lights radiating an Carrot String Lights - String Of 10unparalleled festive feeling. Check out the oh-so-cute Carrot String Lights so bright that the Easter Bunny won’t miss your house, made of pliable plastic that snap easily over lights. As I said before, you don’t need to go on an Easter egg hunt to find great deals; Couponology did all the hard work to make sure you’ve got a 15% discount sitewide when you use 15% Off Miles Kimball Promo Code.

Now that you have your outdoor decorations ready, it’s time to:

…..And Finish Off With The Inside.

Springtime BunnyLet happy thoughts multiply like rabbits and get the personalized Springtime Bunny that kids of all ages will absolutely love! Everyone needs a friend who is all ears and what is more, a huggable friend for the whole year through, so soft and cuddly that you’ll want one for your own (kids of all ages we said)! Order your kids or grandkids names to be embroidered on the rabbit’s outfits and make them a memorable gift they’ll always remember with love. Fill the rabbits’ pockets with chocolate and treats and give your little friends, some real excitement this Easter! As you continue with your indoor decorations, don’t forget to include the no1 Easter special that will warm up every house: the traditional and delicious Easter Candy from Miles Kimball. These treats will bring out memories of the youth and a sweet nostalgia. It is true that good things come in small sugarcoated packages, so does this Easter basket candy assortment of colorful molded cream confections.  Get sweetened from colorful spring flowers, leaves, and chicks in mint flavor, dusted with sugar crystals, each in its own fluted candy cup. Easter Candy

And as one cannot go wrong with timeless, memory-making gifts, the Peter Rabbit Box Set of classic tales by Beatrix Potter is found on the top of my list. I believe kids need educational stories with a tender flair of pastel color illustrations and small size print. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket, make some extra space for the Peter Rabbit Box Set and you’ll save more with Couponology’s 10% Off Miles Kimball Coupon or Free Shipping Miles Kimball Couponwhen shopping online at Miles Kimball!

This is the end of my blog and I hope I made you feel at least half as excited as I am about Easter! Check out Miles Kimball site, get inspired yourself from their Easter collection of gifts and home items and I promise you it will definitely smell like Easter spirit! Until next time… hugs, kisses and Springtime wishes!
