Pre-Christmas Deals: Zara Semi-Annual Sale + Old Navy Earn $20 for every $25 spent

Since Christmas is closing in, lots of stores are pulling all the stops for customers to make sure they shop at their store. Like Old Navy for instance, they usually offer $10 in super cash (can be used on your next purchase of $25 or more) if you spend $25, but from 12/20 - 12/24 you can get $20 in super cash for every $25 you spend (max of $60 in super cash per transaction) in stores. These can be used on 1/31 -2/6. And they are doing a Furby giveaway on Saturday for the first 100 customers (will get a chance to win 1 of 5 Furbys). I use to remember these were popular in the early 2000s and it looks like they are a hot ticket again this holiday season.

Lastly if you are a fan of Zara, they are starting their semi-annual sale in-stores and online tomorrow! What is great is they offer free shipping and returns for online orders. I don't usually shop here as I find that I can find the similar styles at H&M for less but the quality at Zara seems to be a bit better so I might check out the sale tomorrow when it starts online.

As Christmas looms closer and closer (11 days and counting), retailers are throwing out the discounts for last minute shoppers or anyone looking to get something for themselves. Victoria Secret sent out a 20% off one item valid for tomorrow and Sunday. Just click on the image above to get your copy of the coupon, the coupon also states that you can just show the coupon on your phone to receive the discount as well (how eco-friendly!).

As for me, I have been scooping up the great deals from Wrapp, the gift card giving app I have mentioned before. The past week I have received a $10 H&M, $10 and $5 Sephora gift card all for free so if you have not downloaded it, do it now. From now until Christmas, everyday they are releasing a new gift card freebie, follow then on Facebook or Twitter or check their site daily to see what they have to offer. Today they are offering a free $5 Threadless gift card when you give 3 to friends (free to give & receive). *Note that you need Facebook for this app to work.

Influenster: College Voxbox Review

Pardon the quality, I used my Ipod Touch 4g to take it.

Last month I got chosen to receive a college voxbox from Influenster, a site where they let users test out products and spread the word about the products via social media. I was actually surprised that I got chosen since I graduated last year but happy nonetheless. Below are the contents of what I received along with my review of each item.

ImPress Press-On Manicure
Although I really wanted to try this, I received the one with the neon pink with leopard print which are definitely not my style. Wish they would have sent out something that was more neutral or asked us which colors/styles we preferred before sending a random one out to us.

NYC New York Color Show Time Glitter Eye-liner Pencil
I was excited to try this out since I haven't been using drugstore eyeliners for a while since I felt that most of them were harsh and did not glide smoothly on my lids. However this one did, I love the way the color looks and it definitely could be worn casually, I mean after all its black eyeliner. I did not like that it smudges, after about an hour or so it happened, wish it was waterproof. Good for the price ($2.49) but I would not buy it.

Necco Tropical Wafers
I remember eating these from Valentines day when I was little and like most people I did not like the plain taste of them and the chalky taste as people have described. But when I opened my college voxbox all I could smell was this product, and it was good! I tried a few and can say that I have come to enjoy them now more than before, its a great candy alternative but can't say I am completely sold on the taste.

Pentel EnerGel-X
What can I say, its a pen and I am easily impressed if they glide smoothly on my paper and this does just that. I received the one in purple and am surprised that it does not smudge since it is a gel ink. Definitely a fan.

Energy Sheets
I have actually tried these before and absolutely love them, they do provide energy as stated and they are the size of Listerine breath strips. That is one reason I love them, they are compact unlike energy drinks or coffee cups. According to the package 2 strips is equivalent to the same amount of caffeine found in a cup of coffee. A pack comes with 10 strips which can last me a few months if not more since I don't rely on energy supplements. The taste is not the best but they are tolerable, I am not surprised that there is an aftertaste afterward, after all it is an energy supplement.

H&M - Exchange your old clothes for discount

So I was reading today about how in February 2013 H&M is going to start collecting clothes (old or new) for recycling and in exchange will give customers a discount. How great of an offer is that? The new program called iCollect, will have bins by the register for customers to put their bags of clothing for recycling. More details about this when it hits closer to launch. I for one think this is a great idea, how many of us do not know what to do with old clothing, especially ones we cannot donate since they are unwearable due to stains, wear etc?

Forever 21 Free Shipping Today Only

After their recent Friends & Family discount, Forever 21 strikes again today with a free shipping on any order, no code required. Below is the blouse I picked up during Saturday's Friends & Family event, I tried on two neck-tie blouses but I passed since it was a basic that I did not necessary needed. From afar I did not know what the print was but upon closer inspection I realized it was Rams, random right? I like the cream color, how the buttons are covered up by a pleat and lastly the two gold studs on the collar, a decent price for $15.xx after discount.
