Promo Codes, Links and Rambling
Thursday, 20 January 2011 / 22:00

(A major deadline for me just got extended, so I have a little breathing room, hence the posting.)

A few promotions just landed in my inbox: American Eagle is offering $10 off $50 or more with code 39746382 until Feb 1st; take 25% off everything at Aerie when you buy two or more bras with code 83689238; and there's free shipping for a limited time (until Jan 31st, according to coupon sites) at Uniqlo.co.uk.

I'm not going to be using the AE or Aerie codes, but the Uniqlo offer is tempting. (One of my favourite things about Uniqlo is that they give detailed measurements for every item in every size. How awesome is that? More retailers should do this.) This tee comes dangerously close to fulfilling the "Navy Tee in a Ridiculously Specific Style" item on my wishlist

I finally signed up for Nectar points. I won't accrue very many of them, but if I do all my UK-based online shopping through Nectar and use Ebates for US-based stores, I should save a few pence over time

Please excuse the rambling low-content post! Today was sort of tiring and I can't wait to go to sleep. Here are some more exciting things to read. :)

L. at Academichic considers the implications of wearing tartan. Thoughtful posts like this are always good to read, but this one is particularly interesting to me because I'm Scottish.

Aging Gracefully and Levels of Style at Already Pretty. Not only does Sal write great posts, she has a talent for sparking discussion.

How I Want To Shop: A Shopping Flowchart at Orchids in Buttonholes. This one got bookmarked.

Calico Critters (aka Sylvanian Families) at Fern & Fawn. When I logged on this morning, hunched over the computer, coffee in hand, trying to gear up for the tasks ahead, I saw this in my feed reader and my day got that little bit better. And cuter.

Layering with Skirts (I've got to try this) at Fashion for Nerds, and another one from Already Pretty, Layering without Lumps. I need to re-read these myself, because I seemingly can't remember "put tights on under jeans when it's freezing".

Thanks for following my blog :) I love subscribing to stores' email lists so I can be in the know when it comes to sales. I get the American Eagle ones, too, and while I'd love to use them, I usually don't get to the store until after the promo is over, sadly!

Thank you for following my blog! I've just found yours and I can certainly relate as I've spent my life in jeans and baggy sweaters, too. Learning to dress a little better has become a very very interesting process for me thanks to blogs and blogging. I will enjoy following your blog.

@Petite Chic[k] and Lady Cardigan: you're welcome! Lady Cardigan, I'm hoping that blogging will have the same effect for me.
