Makeup Bag: The Best Beauty Buys $25 And Under

I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s resolutions have a lot to do with being a little more frugal.

Winona fell in love with this Burberry military coat — but at $1,095, there was no way she could actually afford it. A thousand dollars for a coat is crazy, anyway. So we decided to give Ms. Winona Judd Dimeo-Ediger a couple of actually affordable options. Check out our less expensive alternatives after the jump!

Shopping Guide: 10 Cheap Pairs Of Sunglasses In Every Style!

As much as I love my sunglasses, I’m in a constant state of losing them. It’s usually my favorite pair that I “misplace,” given that I’m always carrying them with me, and it usually ends in tears. There’s just way too many places to casually leave them and then forget about them just as casually. They also happen to be ridiculously easy to break and scratch, what with the bending arms and fragile lenses. After losing three pairs of Ray-Bans in the past two years, the days of shelling out for a designer pair are over, and I’ve become a connoisseur on the quest for good-looking, decent quality sunglasses that I won’t have a panic attack over if I leave them somewhere. Here’s my round-up of 10 stylish shades that won’t break the bank, or your heart.

Awesomely Affordable: 10 Pieces Under $50 From Loft

Make Up Your Face For Under $20

Why, oh why is makeup so pricey? Yes we love our YSL and Benefit, but considering the circumstances, maybe schlepping to the drugstore beauty counter aisle isn’t so bad anymore. We’ve rounded up a face full of daytime-friendly makeup for a mere $20. Keep reading »

Get Hot Goods (In More Than One Way) For Cheap!

Screw eBay, this morning on the “The Today Show” we learned of an auction site way better (and cheaper) than Meg Whitman’s site. Retired Detective Tom Lane came up with a website to sell off all of the stolen goods police stations seize, calling it PropertyRoom.com. Profits are split with the individual precincts that hand over the goods—and all of the merch has been exhaustively advertised for it’s real owner(s) before being put up for grabs. (And don’t worry, if you recognize an item that’s yours on the website, they’ll get it back to you when you prove it’s yours.) Want a mack truck? How about a diamond engagement ring? Or clothes and bags and bikes? [The Today Show] Keep reading »

Dating On The Cheap: Head To Ikea

You probably won’t find Michelle and Barry O. making eyes over a plate of Swedish meatballs in the cafe any time soon (though you never do know!), but The New York Times is claiming more and more of us are heading to the Scandinavian superstore for a few romantic moments alone. Ahh, love amongst the Lack storage solutions! And parents are taking full advantage of the child care centers called “Smaland,” dumping the little rugrats off for up to an hour and a half of supervised playtime in the ball pit, and heading to the couch section to read the paper together in silence. (Actually, Ikea estimates that “Smaland” attendance has jumped roughly 20 percent so far this year in its stores in major American cities.)

I bet it makes for a tab that you’ll both be fighting to pay. Don’t worry, sweetums, it’s my treat this time! [NY Times] Keep reading »

Slideshow: Cheap Home Stuff

One of my favorite pastimes is reading interior design magazines like Domino and getting depressed about the look of my own department. It’s a sickness, really. But I think one of the easiest ways to cure a depressing habitat situation is to spruce up what you’ve already got with some new, cheap home accessories. Like the eight after the jump!

Captured: Forever 21 Bends Over

Sex sells. But does doggy-style make shoppers want cheap, trendy tops? Our gal pal Heather is way into Forever 21, but she did a double take when she saw their mannequins doubled over and sent us a picture. Usually when we pose like this, the lights are out and we’ve had a couple drinks, but apparently that’s just the look the store in New York City’s Union Square is going for. Guess working it from behind is always in style!
