A couple of weeks ago I logged on to the Rue LaLa (this link will allow you access to the site) account I had opened years ago and never bothered to use. I saw an ad on the side of my computer screen and surprisingly enough had remembered my log-in information, which is extremely impressive considering I seem to lock myself out of my Twitter account at least once a week.
If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you’ll likely know that I love a good bargain! If you like designer clothes but cannot afford or don’t want to pay top dollar, this site is perfect for you!

I love shopping, fashion and getting a good deal. About a week ago, I came across StyleOwner.com. Being a huge fan of online shopping, I was immediately intrigued. StyleOwner is a social commerce site that allows users to share your favorite products with family and friends. If someone purchases from your StyleOwner Storefront, you receive commission.
When it came down to creating a blog, I was torn between fashion and healthy living, but went with Healthy Living since I really enjoyed reading other healthy living blogs. Another cool part about StyleOwner is the ability to create a blog within your store front, which I am highly considering doing.
You have to sign-up for an invite…It only took me about one day to get one!
Here’s my Style Owner Store:

REMINDER: ZICO giveaway ends tomorrow morning!
It’s no secret that I like to shop! I have account RueLaLa, Hautelook and various other websites like them, but I’ve really never bothered to actually log-into these accounts and see what is out there! Well, I logged-in to RueLaLa yesterday and let’s just say I’m hooked. I actually purchased my sister a Christmas present yesterday (I am definitely turning into my mom shopping so early). $595 item for $49.90, can’t beat that. Plus, they are having a LongChamp sale this weekend –I’ve actually set an alarm for the time the sale starts. The other thing I like about RueLaLa is that you only pay shipping once and then it is free for the next 30 days! (Perfect excuse to do a lot of shopping, right?)

You know what else I am unfortunately loving, Bengay Zero Degrees. I’ve read about this product on a few blogs and was wondering if it would work to relieve a little foot and hamstring pain that I experience from time to time. I love the fact that this product can be stored in the freezer, it’s like applying ice to the sore area! I also love the fact that it doesn’t smell like Bengay or any other pain relieving cream.
What are some things you are currently loving?

And it’s Monday (and April!). Mondays are always filled with long to-do lists that make it seem like the work is never going to end. While I try not to wish away five days in a row, I’m really looking forward to the end of the week. As a result, I’m working like a mad-woman for the beginning of the week. I’m am completely stoked for the beginning of baseball season at the end of this week!
Last week I opened a box of waffles for breakfast only to realize that I didn’t have any maple syrup, so I leaned towards the peanut butter and made sandwiches with my waffles and peanut butter. Since the middle of last week, I’ve devoured a box of waffles on my own. Tomorrow, I’ll be opening the blueberry waffles. It’s amazing how the simplest things can make a person so happy. Granola or jelly also make great additions to these sandwiches!
How cute are these shoes at just $12.74 from Target?
I couldn’t help myself. They seem extremely comfy so I bought both!

I figured it’s about time I make a post…I’ve been blog-lazy recently! Anyways my weekend was filled with what I like to refer to as free and/or low-cost shopping. Upon a few requests, I’m going to share some tips, tricks and secrets for getting the most for your money!
While I am not extreme couponer, I thoroughly enjoy getting stuff at a great price; it’s exciting and makes you feel good. It’s almost like a game, how cheap can you get stuff. Despite the fact I am 26 years old, I have no shame in handing over a stack of coupons (or in some cases scanning a ton of them on my own at a self checkout line!). The one important thing to note is that I don’t put a lot of time into couponing. In fact, I really wouldn’t call it couponing at all. I refer to it as simply paying attention.
Here are some tips to get you started:
- Pay attention to your mail. Don’t assume everything is junk mail. Look through the advertisements. Trust me, you’ll find plenty of coupons. For instance, my “junk mail” this week contained a coupon for a bag of free baby carrots and a free box of noodles. Why not?
- Utilize offers from Victoria Secret and Bath and Body Works. When they send you a coupon for a free trial-sized item or a free pair of underwear, go use it! Just ask the sales associate where you can find the item and head to the register quickly. Don’t be tempted by other items in the store or the fact that you coupon may also be good for 20 percent off of a bra. Remember, you are just there for the free item!
- Watch the television commercials during your favorite shows. A lot of times, you may notice and advertisement telling you to visit their website, follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook to print out a coupon for a free sample or a dollar amount off.
- Check out this website: SweetFreeStuff.com for legit free samples as well as coupons.
- Visit Target and Walmart’s website, they often have free sample giveaways as well as printable coupons.
- Keep a small folder of coupons. Each week when your grocery store advertisements come in the mail, look at what is on sale and what you need. Then, check and see if you have a coupon to go along with the sale items. This should only take five to 10 minutes if you are organized. Check out the ads in your Sunday paper as well and compare it to your stack of coupons.
- Only use coupons on items you normally buy or on items you need (unless you are getting them for free of course!). Coupons won’t end up saving you money if you buy an item just because you have a coupon!
- Avoid convenience stores. You’ll pay for the convenience.
- Look for printable coupons. Check out the websites of products you constantly use for printable coupons; sometimes you’ll even end up with free samples too.
- Find out if your local grocery double coupons. This can often lead to you getting sale items for pennies if you have coupons.
I purchased the Large Longchamp Le Pliage tote for $107!! Regular $145 and rarely on sale. Here’s how:
- I did a Google search for Longchamp sale and came across a website called bagshop.com (which is actually a purse boutique like store in the North East).
- I did plenty of research to make sure this store was going to send me a real bag!
- I checked out there website for different colors. Turns out, the fall colors are onsale. I found a color called “Praline” which is just a slightly darker variation on the beige color with a darker inside.
- Checked for coupon codes. Retailmenot.com had a 10 percent off coupon for Bagshop.com
- Website offered free shipping, plus no tax!
