Sample Sale-ing Adventure

It’s official!  I have an unhealthy sample sale website addiction.  It combines two of my instinctual drives: sale shopping and competition. The concept is as simple as it is genius.  The website starts by discounting designer items, then it sets a time for the sale to start.  When the clock chimes the bargain hunters swarm … Read more

Be the Lady in Red

Red!
