HGB Exclusive: My Affordable Little Luxuries

Hey ladies,

Who doesn’t love a spa treatment or a shopping spree? These little luxuries can brighten anyone’s day, but what it shouldn’t do is break the bank. There are times when you can splurge, but there are always cost effective ways of indulging in these little luxuries.

So how can we indulge but still save? I’m glad you asked! Here are my tips on affordable little luxuries

1. Deal-a-Day Sites – sites like Groupon, Amazon Local Deals, Lifebooker, and Living Social are great for deals for restaurants, spa treatments, beauty services-manicures, pedicures, waxing, hair salons, sales at your favorite stores, health and wellness classes, and even the movies! Sign-up and receive deals for your area daily

2. Invitation-Only Discount Designer Websites- sites like Gilt Group, Ideeli, Rue Lala, and Haute Look always have great deals for your favorite brands. You can purchase items up to 80% off on some sites. For an invitation to any of the sites click here.

3. Daily Subscriptions to Newsletters- I receive a number of newsletters to my inbox throughout the entire day. The newsletter feature special deals, sales, and exclusive previews as well.  Sign up for your favorite stores only. It gets pretty annoying and your inbox looks more like junk mail.

4. Sample Sales- sites like Daily Candy and The Cut are great for keeping up with the latest designer sample sales. Sample sales are awesome because you get great pieces for great prices.

5. Off Season Shopping- the best time to shop for the summer is when it is coming to an end. Off-season shopping is often overlooked. Fashion is always a season ahead and we should be also. You can shop in season for trendy pieces, but definitely shop off-season for classics, or trends that carry over.

These are my tips! What are your tips on affordable little luxuries?
