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!

See & Be Heard with T&B

On November 25, 2013, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

Trends come and go. Some of them are welcomed by few, some by all and others are absolutely denied access in our wardrobe. Me, when I first come up with a trend it takes me a while (5 seconds I guess) to incorporate it into my style. In other cases, I just close my eyes and pay no attention to it – you know, these moments when you prefer to go out naked instead of wearing a new piece that you would need to be bribed to accept it. But recently, I had a not-so-usual experience with a trend, since none of the above happened to me. I just went from shock to love. Here is how it all started…

A couple of months ago, me, with my pretend-to-be-modern-and-cool-as-hell attitude, and my, although not high degree but still existing, myopia, I couldn’t get this whole wear 24/7 eyeglasses even-if you have a 20/20 visual acuity or a superhero’s visual ability. You know… It really stroke me. I was always doing my best to have it good with my contact lenses so that I wouldn’t need to wear my eyeglasses when out, up to the moment that I came up with Tortoise & Blonde –and also realized that wearing your contacts too many hours can be harmful. This brand has something, how can I say… different! And I’m definitely one of these people that want to be extraordinary and wear unique pieces that will definitely make them “be heard” in the crowd. And T&B can absolutely offer you that. With unique designs of eyeglasses and sunglasses that are so comfortable and well-designed and deals (let’s say a BOGO 50% off Tortoise & Blonde coupon code) that allow you to shop for as many styles as you want without spending much, T&B came to make glasses the next big fashion thing!

Oh! And I forgot the most amusing part of this adorable brand. Have you ever heard of a Fashion-Music-Project? It’s quite common in the country I come from but let me explain. When fashion blends with music then you get something unbelievably cool and magical. And in our case, that happens! Tortoise & Blonde sponsors music bands like The Spinto Band, Ra Ra Riot and others who are not only absolutely talented but also have a super-hot style; accessorized, of course, with T&B glasses! Because don’t forget that, as I said before, it’s been quite a time since eyeglasses stopped being used only for eye problems; they are a fashion statement guys! And as every fashion item you need to have plenty of them in order be stylish. For example, why do you have a million handbags, shoes, scarves and just one pair of glasses? Either because you are not following the fashion trends or just because you haven’t been introduced to T & B before. And that’s why I’m here!  :)

Give me a second to hide my excitement and get rid of my bad rap habit. No! I can’t! I’m so excited with the recent deals I spotted for Tortoise & Blonde, together with all their upcoming events that I feel like I discovered electricity. And although at the moment, I have more than 20 eyeglasses (sun and optical) in my drawer, I want to get 2 more. And I’m absolutely guilt free about it. I will use the BOGO 25% off Tortoise & Blonde promo code and, as usual, I’m going to babble about it- see this exact moment. But I have a huge problem here! I’m so indecisive that I think I’m going to use this code twice. Because, after spending a day persuading myself that I need more optical eyeglasses than sun ones, now, I’m being obsessed with 4 different styles and I’d really need your help to decide. Because if you leave me like that for another hour then I’ll have to (oh, poor me) get them all. WOW! Please don’t pay attention to what I just said and don’t help me, I’ll do it my way anyway. So, just get online and use for yourself the to-fall-in-love-with Try On feature (see picture) and spend at least 3 hours trying different styles on your face.

And here’s how the story finishes…

-Jane in True Tortoise? Melrose in Ice? Katherine in Blonde Tortoise? Castor in Haze? (Clockwise)

-Add, add, add, add. And please be my face’s guest! ;)

Till this coming Friday that you should absolutely come back for unbelievable Black Friday deals from Tortoise & Blonde! See? Soon enough, you’ll love that trend too!

When June makes its appearance on my diary’s page (weekly planner Moleskine in other words), then I know for sure that by the end of the week this can’t-stand-staying-in-the-house excitement will become strong enough to avoid making it real! Actually, in my case, this summer joy has already started since every single year I’ve been expecting summer to a degree that when it’s here, I’m already sad because it will end. But that’s not the point! The point is that when you give in to this amazing feeling you need to do it in style. In fact, you can’t stay on your sweatpants and pj’s as you did during winter to watch movies and have drinks at home. You have to get into your hottest styles and seduce the summer with your confidence! After all these two, confidence and style, are so interrelated. But since earning sky-high confidence is not that easy, I decided to make it child’s play for you by offering you the best deals on first-class styles from HouseOfHarlow1960.com. And before I get into details, let me make your shopping-motivation explode! At the moment, Couponology is offering you an amazing exclusive 20% off House of Harlow 1960 promo code!

Except for your own enthusiasm of getting out because of the hot temperatures, when summer begins you are in this awesome position of receiving more and more invitations for the much-awaited pool parties, garden parties and weddings. And it’s during those events that you want to look at your best! That can be easily done if you get your hands on top quality, fashionable and hot clothes and accessories. For example, I picked up for you a complete gorgeous outfit that by just changing shoes can be worn day and night! So, let me explain what you see here. First off, there is the sleeveless, silk Fay Top, a printed chiffon tank with asymmetrical hem. A top that will never get your warm even under the highest of temperatures. You can wear this top with a short made by a similar fabric or depending on the circumstances, with a denim short in black or white. Now, if you think of it as your next party outfit then you should combine it with a pair of heels in a pale color or black- it’s good to combine the shoes with the python black and white style of the top. Otherwise, if this is a coffee-time-outfit, then you can get the Chopout Kilian oxford style bootie with cut out design which comes in rosy nude (I got this one) and black. Finally, in both day and night cases, you can adorn this style with the beautiful gold plated Seer’s necklace which has a black stone bar. This one is a very elegant piece that can be worn with countless outfits; apart from your bikini of course -not that it won’t much but you’ll risk losing it in the water! And finally, you can also get the Olbers Paradox drop earrings in gold so that you decorate your ears too when you have your beautiful hair up!

Now for those of you, who are not that into shorts (I don’t know why you do, but I still like you all) I’ve thought of a dazzling outfit for you too. And again, the following outfit allows for maximum flexibility since it can be complete altered by different choices of shoes and handbags! So, starting from the basic part, you need first of all to get the Etoile maxi dress which is made of top quality cotton and silk and has slim shoulder straps. The best part of this dress, except for the flared cut skirt is the color changing which, to me, it gives extra height to the body. But, since the top part is white and quite plain you need a statement necklace to add to this dress. In other words, you need something like the gold plated Engraved and Cross Hatch 5 Station necklace which has seven silver plated links. A perfect color combination with the skirt of the dress, but also a super flexible piece thanks to its mixed metal design. Then, it’s time to adorn your hands, so after the French manicure you have to shop for the silver plated Spike Stack ring set –it also comes rose gold plated. This is a quite low profile set of rings which can be easily matched with a lot of other jewelry. Finally, if you have a Jackie O inspired relationship with sunglasses, you should definitely go for the Robyn sunglasses. A gorgeous cat eye frame (we always need to follow the latest trends) with a very interesting bent arm silhouette (and we always need to stand out in the crowd). And remember, sunglasses are not only for the eyes, but a fashion statement so stick to them all day long. No, not in restaurants and bars, I’m talking about the outdoors!

Last but not least, in order to build up your summer confidence you only need to trust the places you shop. In that case, at House of Harlow 1960 you know that you will get the best quality on the latest fashion trends. And in order to be able to keep shopping without breaking the bank, you know that you always have Couponology by your side!

For Your Eyes Only

On April 25, 2013, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

“Kill two birds with one stone”! Ha! It always makes my day when I say that, it sounds like a huge accomplishment to me! And to be honest, it is! Especially, when it has to do with shopping- when everything is an accomplishment, or maybe an investment as I like to say with my friends! For example, today I can proudly shout that out loud. Thanks to the unbelievable EyeBuyDirect.com BOGO free coupon, I can finally get a new pair of eyeglasses, or maybe two! And now’s the perfect time to do just that! It is spring and you have to get rid of your winter-styled glasses and go for something bright, joyful or maybe for something extreme. And also, your eyeglasses are an accessory in use every day, so you need a change, can’t you tell?

That’s exactly what I did! I decided on a pair of glasses, a fashion statement, that would stand out in the crowd. And that’s the Gryazi Tortoise Medium Full-Rim Fashion Eyeglasses that come with any lens your eyes desire–single vision, bifocal, progressive or trifocal. This cat eye frame is definitely a must-have for every girl that loves being stylish and respects the fashion trends. Together with this pair, for the days that I want to “wear” my more serious face at work, I also got the Tuapse Black/Green Medium Full-Rim Fashion Eyeglasses with free single vision lenses, without paying a single penny. This rectangle frame allows for a lot of flexibility since it can be easily combined with different outfits; and yes, I do match my eyeglasses with my clothes too, even with the color of my eyes or maybe my eye shadow. Actually, apart from the health issues, you should have a good collection of eyeglasses since they are a fashion item too! I’m sure you’ve seen people wear them even without lenses!

And of course, at EyeBuyDirect.com men can update their glasses’ collection too. With the BOGO free coupon, you can choose two pairs and pay for just one. So if you finally want to keep your word on having one pair in the car and one pair in the office, this is the moment to do it; with brand new fashion eyeglasses. So, for men, I’d propose the horn-shaped Black/Blue Small Full-Rim eyeglasses which are definitely stylish, and they are two-tone, adding a more modern touch to the strict black eyeglasses we usually see. For the blonds among the men, glasses look best in a softer color, like the all-time classic pair of wayfarers, the Zhukov Burgundy Medium Full-Rim Plastic eyeglasses. These come in soft tones that will complement any man’s style. And of course, if you like extremes too, you can get a red, blue or even white frame; the choices are endless.

Perhaps you are wondering why I’m focusing that much on plastic frames. Firstly, let’s make that clear, at EyeBuyDirect.com you can find any style and shape of glasses, made by any material. And secondly, it’s just that the latest fashion dictates the plastic- frame- trend that led my focus exclusively on them. So in case you are not that into these kinds of frames, you can choose whichever material you want and save big. Before you start shopping online, I ought to tell you about the EyeBuyDirect up to 80% off sunglasses coupon too. I just used it and bought the Kataysk Brown Medium sunglasses in classic brown, while saving $70. It’s that simple: it’s tough to avoid buying a new pair of sunglasses when you can’t help but spend time  under the glorious spring sun. So, don’t waste time! Be a fashion icon with a full wallet in minutes! You see? Just one stone!
