AWESOME DEAL: 20% Off Sparkly Soul Headbands

One of my favorite things to do is work out, but one of my least favorite things to do is wipe stray hairs out of my sweaty face in downward dog or in 3rd position over the flywheel. To solve this problem, NYC-based Sparkly Soul created the one and only no-slip hairband that has ever stayed in place for me throughout an entire exhale Core Fusion class.

I bought my first several years ago at Pure Barre and have collected several of their fun and sparkly colors ever since. The hairbands come in thin ($15) or thick ($17) varieties and can be found slicking back coifs of fashion-conscious fitness fiends around the city. I can't even tell you how many compliments I get and recommendations I give every time I work out in one.

Good news! Sparkly Soul is offering 20% off all their products through Memorial Day (May 26 at 11:59 pm PST) with code MEMORIALDAY. Also, if you share this sale on social media using the hashtag #sparklysoulheadbands through 11:59 pm PST you will be entered to win 12 headbands of your choice. That's an amazing prize!! Good luck and happy sweating.


Saving You Money 3-8% At A Time

With so many online shopping destinations now, it's a wonder people even go into real stores any more. Sites like Retail Me Not and My Points are great for saving you money and earning you gift cards, respectively, but a few months ago I discovered Ebates and my life has been changed forever.

The premise of Ebates is that you log in, search for an online retailer (anything from Gap to Groupon to Sephora), click the link to go to the retailers site, and you will earn Ebates Bucks on a percentage of the purchase you make at the retailer, usually from 3-8%. Once you have earned at least $10, Ebates will send you a check - simple as pie!

Since joining a few months ago, I've already earned about $20 in cold hard cash just for making purchases I would have made anyway. Every so often Ebates will run specials as well so you will get double or triple the percentage of cash back. An exciting new development - Groupon just increased its percentage from three to six percent back! So next time you want to buy that 50% off restaurant gift certificate, you can save another 6% on top of that!

So screw 5th Avenue, sign up for Ebates. Do all your shopping online and use your savings for a night out!
