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!

Trend Spotting at PacSun

On December 10, 2013, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

Today, I switched on my computer with one single wish! To talk about fashion. Haha! You got me, I do that every single day. But! Last night, when I was dressing up for a girls’ night out, I was quite surprised with myself when I decided to put on my cheetah print booties, AGAIN. And when I got to the gym this morning, I put on my leopard Burton jacket. And from those two moments, there is something spinning around my head. What is that? I’ll tell you what… Usually, when I see trend being circulated too much around I’m getting so sick that I can’t even stand looking at it. You know, I get this eye-hurting feeling of boredom and lack of originality. So not-acceptable by an Aquarius- for those of you who know a bit about birth dates. :) And to my surprise, this is happening to me this season (and maybe the previous one too). I’m getting this fashion-routine attitude that makes me choose styles that look so much alike and to be honest, I’m just lovin’ it! And after a lot of brainstorming and put-the-blame-on-others situations, I got it. It’s not just that prints whether animal or camo is an ongoing trend, it’s mostly that PacSun deals are also timeless that I can get as many similar outfits as I wish. So, yes, I put the blame on the unbelievable PacSun coupons available on our site. You see? I’m not actually boring, I never wear the same items but they just look similar!

pacsun leoSpeaking of similarity let me show you my next targets, all based on similar patterns. And I promise, after that I’ll stop shopping for this kind of prints. You know I love to shopping-lie sometimes, don’t you? So, starting from top to toe, the number one on the list is the LA Hearts Animal Mesh Cropped Top, which I would wear as shown in the pic or with my black joggers or maybe my brown harem pants. Tip: don’t you try this top with leggings unless you are on the catwalk. Next on the list is the LA Hearts Leopard Printed Leggings, which come with the perfect fit and can be worn with flats, sneakers or high heels, depending on your mood- or your height, kidding! Then, the second variation of the trend, the camo print should definitely be welcomed to your dressing room. For me, the best you could choose is the LA Hearts Camo Printed Leggings and as for matching it: see the previous one! Finally, if you are sick of your little black dresses, you can wear them with the With Love From CA Leopard Tights and a pair of flats and you’ll have a whole new morning look. And the best of it? Now, you can get all of the above and save big with the 30% off PacSun coupon code. See? Shopping doesn’t always mean spending!

pacsun leo2

Now, as I said before, when we talk about shopping we need to have a complete plan- otherwise we are wasted. Don’t you ever go to the checkout without a new pair of shoes. And in our animal-instincts-awakening case, it couldn’t be other than the Qupid Ritzy Leopard Mesh Flats which come in two colors, black and pale pink (for which I’ll definitely dedicate a whole article next time). This pair is so cute but also so hot because you already know how hot transparent textiles are- even if it is on shoes and feet (another story). LOL Also, it’s quite cool to wear them at a night out so as to make a difference of all these sky-high heels around- my Aquarius nature is awake again! Also, for those of you who are more Jessica than Victoria, then you can go for the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Flashee Hi Top Sneakers which can be called anything but sporty (you know, in that messy, non-pompous-just-comfy sense). Hey wait! I’m not done yet! How many times do I have to say that an outfit is nothing without a nice accessory? And in our days, we know that the most easily-shown accessory is our iPhone’s case- it’s ringing 24/7 anyway, so there is no way you won’t show it off. And here comes the cats again and the lovable PacSun iPhone 5 Case with Ear Buds. I fell for sure! Especially now that I can get it for less than $12.

pacsun menOmigod! Are you a man reading this? If you are planning on making your girl happy then it’s fine! Otherwise, I’m so sorry! You see, I’m overwhelmed with excitement and I forgot that I and my fellow fashion addicts are not the only people on earth. So let me pay back and share some shopping ideas with you too. I know you are not that much into following trends –although you should do sometimes, no offense! So in your case I’d just go for the items I’d love to see worn by my boyfriend. And you’d better trust me because I’m paying too much attention on clothing so you bet I got it right. You need a new pair of pants, I know, but not a usual, boring one! You need a BANG (!) one like the –God I love its fit- Levi’s 511 Corduroy Surf Blue Pants. Yes you do and you’ll get all eyes on you! Even the ones that force you to light a flare to turn! :)  And also, you need a new top. What about following a trend yourself and getting the Ezekiel Now You See Me Cardigan in black camo? Yes, you’ll look handsome my dear and you’ll also save 30%, so let her drink champagne tonight. :) Wasn’t that too easy my dear boy? You know it was! Oh! And before checkout, get something for her too! You got some tips from above so don’t screw it up. No! Photoluminescent clothing is not in vogue!

Seize the Deals at PacSun

On October 27, 2013, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

When I was younger, my dad used to remind me to “seize the day”. Carpe Diem is his favorite phrase I guess, not his actually since it comes from August’s time and Horace words- not that my dad is not wise enough to say something similar of course! But that’s not a biography neither a poetry class so let’s go on… Growing older he decided to stop telling that to me for a very simple reason. Being stubborn and spoiled enough to do as told, I made a small paraphrasing and decided to “seize the deal” (!), keeping just the “seize” part of it. See dad? I’m not that bad! Haha! So I went on digging all the fashion deals I could and taking the most out of them. Brilliant high school girl!

The expected result? My dad could go bankrupt and me wanting a second house for my clothes only.

The actual result? Me having a job that allows me to get and share all the best deals on fashions nobody could resist. So you see? I’m actually seizing something! I catch all the deals and sharing with all of you! After using them for myself first. ;) What kind of spoilness allows for the opposite?!

pac2

So let me show you the way that you can also seize the opportunity to do something great! You will get new clothes, inspired by the latest fashion trends, while saving big time with promo codes that will make you jump from joy! Yes! Exactly like that. You just need to follow some steps. First and foremost you need to get online at PacSun, our favorite lifestyle clothing store. Then you need to add as many items as you want to your shopping cart. And finally, add one of the Couponology exclusive PacSun promo codes and save up to 25% off your order. And that’s it! Updated wardrobe, full wallet. Good job! :)

pac1Hey, wait a minute! I’m not here just to share the deals, I’m also responsible of giving a helping hand that will get you out of this (so sweet and adorable) indecisive position before going to checkout. There are so many styles that you’ll need a day to decide. Unless you already have a room dedicated to your fashion babies (as I call my newly bought styles). Enough with the talking! Let’s see some fashion here and as it’s a Holiday week, we have to see styles that can get you through the gatherings and the trips to the countryside.

For you my fellow fashion lovers, I chose to share (and buy of course) the hottest trend of the season: animal prints. And if you tell me that you don’t just fall for them, you’ll absolutely surprise me! Anyway, let’s start with a piece that can get through the entire winter, the Billabong Shaggy Strolls Jacket that can be worn day and night and matched with almost everything. Second on the list comes the hot Afends South of Sahara Leggings which promise a super feminine outfit whether you want to wear it with your sheepskin boots or your flat ballerina shoes. And finally, since no fashionista can go to checkout without a new accessory, you have to get too the multi-color print Vans Idylwild Snapback Hat, a so cool add-on to your outfit. And remember, hats are not only for the sun!

pac3

Now, for my male friends, I decided to start with every man’s favorite piece: denim. But, before I start with my top picks, let me tell you that: long gone is the time that men didn’t were slim fit or colored jeans. And to prove my point I chose two adorable pieces that combine both! The first one is the Bullhead Denim Co Dillon Skinny New Twill Pants in gray and the second one is the Bullhead Denim Co Dillon Skinny Colored Pants. Both items come with the perfect fit, are very comfortable and also you can get them both for just $69! And one small tip here: wear them with leather shoes for a more formal styling or with trainers for a more casual one; their style serves both needs! And for the cold days of the week, my favorite sweater is the AMBIG Baylor Sweater in heather grey color, which can be worn even with sweatpants for the braver of you- love this style and my favorite jacket, the Hurley Biker Jacket.

pac4I guess now you got the way to seize a deal/opportunity/day – call it as you wish – when it knocks on your door, right? I’m sure you did and together with it, keep that in mind! This week PacSun decided to blow our minds and offers a BOGO 50% off everything coupon. What are you waiting for? Go!!! :)

As we approach October, men and women all over the world are getting ready for one of the world’s biggest fairs: the Bavarian beer festival. Oktoberfest festivities might be starting towards the end of September but for the more impatient of you, Timberland decided to start celebrating a little bit earlier with the most extravagant offer of the season! Because when it comes to deals like the 25% off Timberland promo code, then you can be as excessive as you want, while saving some serious cash.

September is all about the beginning of the new fashion season, and Timberland’s got you covered with shoes and outerwear to take you smoothly into fall. And I say smoothly, because you can keep on wearing your favorite tees and shorts by just adding a jacket or a pair of boots, to stay warm and in style.

women'sLet’s get to the point, and as usual, ladies first! So, for you my fellow stylish girls, I’d suggest the Earthkeepers Savin Hill Mid Boot in tobacco forty leather, which is absolutely beautiful and can be matched with (almost) all colors in clothes or bags. Also, just imagine how gorgeous you’ll look in your hot shorts, a tee and that boot; and the traditional Bavarian hat of course when attending the feast! As for men, I’d suggest the Earthkeepers Rugged 6-Inch WP Plain Tow Boot in copper roughcut which is also super adjustable and can be worn day to night. But I’ll need some special attention here! The association with Timberland and Oktoferfest made here doesn’t imply neither that you can show off your socks over the boot nor that you should wear a lederhosen and suspenders! Unless you are member of the Bavarian community in your country of residence and only during the 16 days of the festival!

men's

Last but not least, since people like us never go home early, especially when there is so much going on during October and evenings (or early mornings) can be quite chilling you should also equip yourself with a new jacket like the Women’s Timberland Leather Biker Jacket or the Men’s Earthkeepers Stetham Leather Bomber. They are both made by top quality leather and as everything leather-made, they are all-time-classics. And most of all, they both come with an unbeatable 25% off discount thanks to the so-welcomed Timberfest event! So, just get online and be prepared to get wasted from all these deals! Cheers!

Before I get started I’d like to make two statements:

  1. A man can be extremely stylish in the blink of an eye.
  2. Achieving excellence in one area shouldn’t stop you from achieving it elsewhere.

Yes, my statements are quite personal- and that’s why they are mine. But! If you think more closely about them, then you’ll see that they can be objectively true. And let me share two examples that will make you agree with me. First of all, most of you (men) believe that style is hard to obtain, not because you don’t have it, but because you don’t want to spend time in the malls or because you just don’t have the right guide (me, in that case) that will help you update your wardrobe with a click! And secondly, the fact that Allen Edmonds, for example, has reached excellence in shoe craftsmanship, doesn’t mean that you won’t find the hottest styles in clothing, bags, accessories and much more when shopping online at AllenEdmonds.com. You see? Both points explained with real-life cases! And so, I decided to make your life easier and ours prettier by picking up two complete outfits that will definitely make you look as handsome as possible but also unbelievably well-studied!

Under The Daylight

I’ll start with a casual or, maybe, morning outfit that I chose! So, to begin with, renew your style with a brand new pair of jeans, like the Mid Blue Cahrisma Jeans by 34 Heritage with the latest stretch technology that promises to hug your body and offer superior fit. You can combine this one with the top quality 100% cotton Coral/ Blue Graph Button Down Collar Dress Shirt which apart from its gorgeous color (trust me, it’s really cool to see men in that kind of colors), it also comes with a $65 discount! Also, it’s summer and you have to wear joyful and bright colors; leave dark ones for winter… Then, you need a belt to add an accessory to your style, and in that case you should get the Barry Burn Belt in white leather which also adds a summery sense to your style. But that’s not only for that reason I propose it. As you can see there is white in the shirt’s check but most of all, it will be perfectly matched with your shoes, because I chose just for you the gorgeous Shortstop Boat Shoe in tan leather with white sole –detail is the secret of success in fashion. That’s an amazing pair of shoes –here, there is no need for details since we all know Allen Edmonds expertise in craftsmanship- that can be worn all year round together with the super handy American Heritage Leather Document Briefcase by JW Hulme. Except for its top quality, this bag promises convenience because of its amazing design with interior compartments, pockets, key leash and more features! And that’s it! Now, you have the perfect casual outfit that will get you the best comments- try to be modest! Ha!

Under The Moonlight
So, now that you have a hot morning style, you also need to update your formal wardrobe, you know… This kind of clothes you need to get your girl out for a nice dinner, to attend that meeting in the office or your friend’s engagement party. Let’s get to the point! First off, in more formal occasion when you choose to wear a pair of jeans you absolutely need a darker shade like the Dark Blue Charisma Jeans by 34 Heritage; the perfect color for countless combinations with shirts and accessories. Match it with the Cobalt Blue Bobby Button Down Collar Dress Shirt which has the perfect fit and feeling because of the top quality cotton it’s made from. You can now get this one and save over $60! Cool as you’ll be when in it! But wait! You are not done yet! You need a top quality and as-detailed-as-possibly crafted pair of shoes like the so modern and beautiful Neumora Brown Burnished Calf Monk Straps shoe which comes with a $98 discount! Yes for real! And trust me, you’ll definitely stand out in the crowd and all these usual loafer/ boat/ oxford style choices! Finally, in order to avoid carrying your bag with you (you never know how your night will end up) you can keep your money safe in your pocket with the Cocobolo Wood Money Clip by M-Clip. A so perfectly designed accessory that you won’t be able to stop using even when carrying your wallet with you!

Now, that I’ve shared all of the above, I’m sure you totally agree with me! By just visiting one store, you just got the latest trends but also adopted Allen Edmonds quality and expertise in men’s fashions. And you are also free to use my initial statements too. Don’t you worry… They are not copyrighted! J But before I go, one more thing all men should keep in mind: A man in style is as adorable as diamonds were to Marilyn! Trust me!
