Cocktails and such

31 Aug

The Kitchn (Apartment Therapy) has been posting all summer about cocktails. They finally wrapped it up and made one giant ol’ post about summer cocktails and mix-ins and guides and tools and all sorts of informative stuff. It’s a pretty handy list and worth bookmarking. My alcohol knowledge is not that great, so it’s good to learn what some of this stuff is so that I’m not as overwhemled the next time I’m at happy hour.

mmmm, happy hour.

Anyway, if you’re not reading The Kitchn, you should. The posts range from super fancy recipes that are way over my head to even simple things like how to fry an egg, and the comments are also great places for ideas and discussion.


Overstock final sale

31 Aug is having a really good final sale on clothes and shoes. There’s tons of stuff, but it’s best to take a look now as I’m sure it will clear out quickly. Shipping is only $2.95.

Breakfast time all the time

31 Aug

Here are a couple of free cereal samples.

  • Honey Nut Cheerios – delicious and lowers cholesterol!
  • Kashi – choose between honey sunshine, Heart to Heart and Go Lean Crunch

I love cereal. When I was little, I always told myself that one day when I grew up, I could eat a big bowl of cereal for dinner and no one would stop me. And I could stay up as late as I wanted. And you know what? Dreams really do come true.

Back to cereal, what is your favorite? Mine is Peanut Butter Cap’N Crunch, followed by Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Lucky Charms. Oh and Count Chocula – I get really excited when Halloween approaches and Count Chocula emerges from his sugary cave of goodness.

Ann Taylor LOFT clearance

27 Aug

Wow, this final sale is pretty good. A cardigan for $4.88? Sweet. I’ve found Ann Taylor to be a good source for work clothes.

Just make sure you shop wisely – there are no returns on final sale items.

Free lip balm … in an orb!

27 Aug

This looks kind of weird, but since I’m a sucker for packaging, I’ll share it:

Free sample of eos lip balm in sweet mint. The web site has some annoying stuff after you sign up, but you can click the skip buttons.

Ben Sherman shoes on the cheap

26 Aug

For today only (8/26), is offering a bunch of Ben Sherman men’s and women’s shoes for $34.95 each. Shipping is $6.95.

It looks like there are more men’s than women’s shoes (Ben Sherman … go figure), so if there are any dudes reading this, it’s your lucky day.
