Earlier today Halle Berry announced that she is launching the iconic French lingerie brand, Scandale Paris, in select Target stores and on Target.com on October 27th.
The line looks like it will be fairly affordable. (And, of course, everything from Target ships for free so it’s even more affordable!) The animal print bra above will cost $18 and the hipster bottoms will cost $7. Panties will be available in sizes XS-XXL and bras will be available in sizes up to 38DD.
Halle wore a Nina Ricci top paired with a Rebecca Vallance black leather skirt and Christian Louboutin shoes. Under her sheer shirt, Halle modeled an Illusion Demi bra in metallic black from the Scandale Paris collection.
What do you think? Will this line get you out to the stores?
Target announced yesterday that they are now offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders throughout the holiday season! This offer will be available through December 20, and is an obviously awesome ploy to help them compete better with Amazon this holiday shopping season.
One of the reasons I love Amazon so much is because I’m an Amazon Prime member, which means I get free* two-day shipping on all orders. This, of course, means that I take advantage of my Amazon account to purchase silly little items because, hey – free shipping!
In honor of Target offering free shipping on everything for the next two months or so, I thought it’d be fun to share five of the small things that you can now have shipped right to your door without paying an extra dime!
No more slipper emergencies! Keep your feet warm with these Kitty Slippers that are on sale for just $8.48 and ship for free!
Too lazy to walk to CVS, Walgreens or Duane Reade to pick up a new nail color? Have one shipped to your door for free! Essie Bordeaux ($8.49) is a perfect color for fall and winter!
Going to meet your BFFs new baby and you forgot to buy a gift? Quick! Head to the Target website and pick up this Gerber Onesie and Hat! It costs $6.99, but you can get 20% off and drop the price to $5.59 AND it’ll ship for free! You’ll look thoughtful but you’ll have spent no more than you do on your daily Starbucks run.
Bummed that The Cosby Show isn’t yet on Netflix? Don’t despair. Pick up seasons 1 and 2 on DVD for just $7.79 and have a Huxtable family marathon!
Did you forget to get your pup a costume this year? No worries – they’re all on sale at Target right now and with the free shipping you can get one shipped to your door for less than $10! My personal favorite is this Dog Superman Costume with Rhinestones (on sale for $8.99). It’s fancy and awesome!
The sky is the limit when it comes to free shipping this year Target, so enjoy the extra savings Target has bestowed on all of us this holiday season!
*Of course, Amazon Prime costs $99 per year so of course that shipping isn’t really free. But yes, I still think an Amazon Prime membership is a worthwhile investment.
Quarterly Co. is one of the subscription boxes that rarely ever goes on sale, but right now Gilt City has a collection of 3 different boxes that you can get for less!
Quarterly Co. is a little different from some of the other boxes out there in that they offer many different boxes – all shipped quarterly – and you base your subscription around the person from whom you’d like to receive a box. For instance, Nine Garcia, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and GQ Magazine all offer boxes.
Gilt City is currently offering 3 different boxes for less, including:
- Box curated by Pharrell (pictured above) – originally $58, now $35
- Unbox Therapy’s Lewis Hilsenteger box – originally $58, now $35
- Book Riot box – originally $58, now $35

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will spend the month of October last year highlighting some of the stores that are running special promotions to raise funds for breast cancer and other cancer-specific charities. With the purchase of any of the items we highlight over the course of this month a portion of the proceeds will be donated to various breast cancer charities.
Throughout the month of October, Origins will donate $3.50 from every purchase of their Limited Edition Drink Up Hydrating Lip Balm in Berry Splash ($17) to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
This lip balm moisturizes thanks to apricot kernal and avocado oil, and it also provides a burst of subtle color.
This promotion is part of the Estée Lauder Companies’ extended Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.
The 2014 BCA Campaign is proud to be moving in a bold new direction as they expand the theme, “Let’s Defeat Breast Cancer. We’re Stronger Together.” In true “Stronger Together” spirit, many of the highly sought-after, iconic brands of The Estée Lauder Companies are offering Pink Ribbon products or making donations, united in support of The BCA Campaign’s mission to defeat breast cancer through education and medical research. In fact, in honor of The BCA Campaign’s 22nd anniversary this year, The Estée Lauder Companies will donate $1 toward education and medical research, up to a maximum donation of $22,000, to BCRF for every uplifting message or photo shared on Instagram or Twitter that includes #BCAstrength.
You can learn more about the Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign at http://bcacampaign.com/.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, is an independent not-for-profit organization committed to funding scientific research to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.
Last year before the holidays we wrote about 12 Easy Ways to Earn Holiday Shopping Money and I included Ebates, which is one of the largest cash-back shopping sites. I’m going to have to amend that post, however, to include BeFrugal.
BeFrugal is another cash back shopping site. BeFrugal offers shoppers up to 30% cash back at 4,000+ stores. They currently have an amazing promotion going where you will earn a whopping $20 (TWENTY DOLLARS!) for every friend you refer to the site… and your friends will earn a $10 bonus for registering!
To qualify for a bonus, new referrals must click on your unique Refer-a-Friend link and sign up as a BeFrugal.com member through that click through. New members must also confirm their BeFrugal.com account and earn $25 in Cash Back (not including bonuses) within 90 days of account creation.
The bonuses for both you and the people you refer will not be accrued automatically based on the rules, but only after new members earn $25 cash back. However, with the holiday shopping season just around the corner, dedicated online shoppers should have absolutely no problem meeting the $25 threshold!
If you get a bunch of people to register, there’s the possibility to earn a heck of a lot of money from this promotion!
Click here to register for BeFrugal and start referring friends!
