Bargains for My Bellas

Tis the season to be thrifty — and the signs of the times are immediately apparent at your local mall. Stores like Saks are offering discounts as steep as 70% off, and you just might be surprised at how many parking spots are still available at your nearest Target or WalMart on the weekends.

Gifts Worth Giving – The Incredible B. Smith

Hey Bellas! In years past, I’ve done big holiday gift guides, and let me tell you, they are kind of exhausting to research and write. So I figured this year I’d do something a little different and have a series of gift suggestions from the kind of companies and entrepreneurs a bella like me is […]
