Ten for the Weekend: Chucks, Rad Grilling Tools and a Sale You’ll Want to See!

Ahhh, Friday afternoons. I’ve looked forward to seeing what’s on sale at the end of the week, a) so I can share ‘em with you and b) so I can drop some major hints for my upcoming birthday. And guys, this weekend? It’s some srsly great shit. From shoes to stationery to awesome grilling tools to one of our absolute faves, this Ten for the Weekend pretty much has it all. Get to it!

Ten for the Weekend

1. There are few things I love more than retiring a pair of beat-up Chucks only to replace ‘em with a shiny new pair that’re ripe for the scuffing. 6pm.com is kicking up to 60% off Converse until 9/14.

2. The cooler weather has arrived (at least momentarily … ) and that’s prime soup and stew season! Right in the nick of time, Sur la Table is having a sale on its 7 qt. red round oven — $64.96 (normally $115) until 9/15. Get yo cook on!

I love multitools, and this one’s for grilling. It’s like, all of the winning!

Five for Friday: Fall Finds for Your Fashion Game

I’m totally a warm-weather addict, but even I’ll be OK with the end of 100-degree days and a return to the normalcy that lives around 75 degrees. As long as I can still sport flip-flops and can avoid big jackets, I’ll be stoked. I do love fall for a few reasons: the air’s crisper — and maybe it’s because I’m a big advocate of learning — it feels more studious ; colors change, and everything becomes more gold-tinged; and well, my birthday is in October … so there’s that. I always liked being able to revamp my wardrobe every fall, and it’s a habit that I still partake in, though now it’s more window-shopping than actual buying. So with this weekend marking the unofficial end of summer, here are my five favorite finds, all under $100, to breathe a little life into your wardrobe this fall.

ShopRuche.com | Sugar Fix Polka Dot Sweater

Sugar Fix Polka Dot Sweater, $39.50 from ShopRuche

What do you love about fall, BABs?

Ten for the Weekend: Sales So Good You’ll Shriek! (No, really.)

Happy Friday, BABs! Whew, has it been a helluva week — I spent a v. rapid 48 hours networking my booty off in NYC (guys, we have some great partners joining the team and I’m super excited, because it means even more awesome discount possibilities) and collaborating with some peeps on future column ideas. But now it’s the weekend, so it’s time for me to sit back, relax and enjoy a little peace and quiet after all the catching up I’ve done. So, won’t you join me in a little retail therapy with these amazing discounts? PS: Make sure you scroll all the way through, because the last one is a doozy!

Ten for the Weekend

Cant Afford It? Get Over It! House Of Mooshki’s “Evie” For Under $1,000

Hey BABs! I’m pretty excited about this week’s Can’t Afford It? Get Over It! Reader Shannon wrote in about “Evie” by House of Mooshki.  Owned by Vicki McCarthy, House of Mooshki is a team of people in London who cater to the modern day bride but with a dash of vintage flair. I discovered them earlier this year and I’ve pretty much been OBSESSED ever since. Sadly, they don’t have any stockists in the US but a little birdie told me that will probably change in the future! “Evie” is an elegant, tea-length gown with tiers of tulle & hand-dyed guipure lace. This dress reminds me of the way women used to dress. All you need is some lace gloves and a veil and it’s perfection. I hope you like what I’ve found for you!

Five for Friday: Black Open-Toe Shoes for Under $40

Y’all, I love helping people out. That’s part of the reason why I love working at BAB. So when my girl Becca sent out a Facebook plea for help in finding shoes to go with this dress in Ocean Blue that she’s wearing as a bridesmaid for a wedding, I was all over it. Because: Duh. I could help her and I had a great mission for my Five for Friday! The Rules: Must be able to walk on both grass and pavement (though if needed, Solemates are the perfect accompaniment for heels in grass), under $40, open-toed and low-heeled. Challenge: Accepted!
