Kayokoko Swimwear Coupon: 25% Off In Stock Products

The sexy Canadian company Kayokoko Swimwear is offering 25% off all in stock products for their summer sale.

Click here to shop @ Kayokoko Swimwear now

  • Coupon Code: SUMMER25
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

This coupon code stacks on top of the hot deals and clearance section as long as the products are in stock. That means you can really get some good deals on beautiful swimwear.

This Flamingo Harbour – Maaji Swimwear set was $125 and is now on sale for $100. You get both the bottom and the top for that price. The top is corset style (lace up tie in the back) with a slight sweetheart neckline. It features soft cups for minimal support. You have a choice of two matching bottoms. Both are low rise, but one is available in a moderate coverage (Signature Cut) or cheeky coverage (Cheeky Cut). After coupon code, this set comes down to just $75.

This Bendito Elefante – Awua Bendita Swimwear one-piece is just fantastic. I love the elephant graphic and the bright, multi-coloured trim. The strappy back is also a really nice surprise. The top is bandeau style with slight ruching and no straps. The bottoms are cheeky. Originally $135, this swimsuit is on sale for $108. After coupon code, it comes down to $81.

Kayokoko also sells lingerie, much to my surprise. I found this lovely Goddess Mesh Chemise with cheeky panty on sale for $66 from $82. After coupon code the set comes down to just $49.50. The chemise is made of soft mesh with baby-doll draping that both accentuates your curves and hides any flaws. The chemise is trimmed with stretch vegan leather, stretch ribbon elastic, and a brushed gold U-ring closure in the center front. I just adore that closure as it reminds me of the closure on the back of my Damaris bras that I bring in from the UK. The matching underwear are made of the same soft mesh with shirred sides and rushing in the center back. They offer a very cheeky coverage.

There are plenty of bikinis, monokinis, tankinis, one-piece swimsuits, shorts, cover-ups, and lingerie to choose from. Kayokoko Swimwear Canada stocks items for women, men, and children. After I finish writing this post, I am going shopping. I recently got a rash guard top and I need to find a bottom for it. With this sale and coupon code together, I can get a good deal.

Receive free shipping across Canada on orders of $50 or more.

Entertainment Book: 2 Books for $10

Posted by on July 22, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Entertainment Book: 2 Books for $10

The last time we posted about Entertainment Book they had an offer where you could get a book for only $5 but it came with a large contingency: you had to sign up for their annual renewal, which means you were agreeing to pay full price for your next book. This deal has no such contingency: just get any two Entertainment Books for 2014 for $10 with free shipping.

You still have five full months to use the coupons from these Entertainment books, and trust me, you can easily save yourself $10 worth and more with just a few coupons worth. This deal is also the perfect mix and match deal. There is no need to get two books for the same city – though you can if you want to – rather you can buy one for your home city and get one for your next vacation or for when you go to visit relatives. I tested this theory out and added both the Vancouver Island Book and the Edmonton Book to my cart. Once both books were in my cart, they came down to $5 each. As the Vancouver Island Book originally cost $35 and the Edmonton Book originally cost $45, the total savings is $70 on my order.

This offer still includes the online and mobile coupons. All sales are final – no returns or exchanges will be allowed.

If you find yourself dinning our a lot, using dry cleaners, grocery shopping, or just enjoying everything your good city has to offer, then you need this book. When I bought the book last time, it had coupons for M&M Meats, Safeway, local dry cleaners, and city attractions. Some of the passes were two for one admissions for museums, shows, and more so the savings really adds up quickly. I also tend to try new things when I have the coupon book because there are such great deals in there that I do not want to waste them. Through the coupon book, I have found new favourite restaurants and got to share those finds with friends. One of my friends has since takes three of her friends to my new favourite restaurant as well.

Buy these for yourself, give a book to family members and friends, or drop one in your neighbour’s mailbox. Either way, whoever receives one of these will certainly get their money’s worth out of the book and much more.

Dress911 Canada: Dreaming of Monet Dress Only $30 (Was $115)

Posted by on July 22, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Dress911 Canada: Dreaming of Monet Dress Only $30 (Was $115)

Dress911 Canada is selling the beautiful retro Dreaming of Monet Dress for 74% off. Originally $114.95, the dress is now on sale for $30 with only $5 shipping.

This multi-coloured embroidered dress will be the perfect piece for summer parties and meeting up with friends. It is a beautiful watercolour dress of pastel colours. The primary colour is blue, but there are also yellows, pinks, and more in the dress. You will not need a slip with this dress as it is multi-lined with one layer of organza to help create volume. As the dress tapers in around the waist, there is a side zipper for ease of entry and exit.

The dress is made of 60% polyester, 40% rayon, and 10% cotton. You might notice there isn’t any spandex (or spandex like) fabric in this dress, this it is not stretchy. Stick close to the measurements for the best fit. Sizes small and medium are still available in the dress. The following are the measurements for each size:

Small:

  • Length: 33″
  • Bust: 33″
  • Waist: 26″
  • Hips: 40″

Medium:

  • Length: 34″
  • Bust: 35″
  • Waist: 28″
  • Hips: 42″

From the pictures, the hips look free because of the way the skirt portion is shaped. Thus, if your hips are a tab bit larger than the dimensions, I think they might fit. However, you might want to contact Dress911 to double check, as this dress is final sale. Returns are not allowed. I think this cute is really the cutest thing: it could be either dressed up for a dinner out or dressed down for fun on the beach.

This dress is part of Dress911′s summer sale. There are other good deals in the sale you might want to check out if you are planning to buy this dress. This Zest of Life top was $32.95 and is now on sale for $13.18. It is available in 1X and 3X. The Green Space Top is also a fun summer top that looks light and breezy. Originally $39.95, the top is on sale for $15.98 and is in stock in sizes 1X and 2X. The Queen Bee Sweater is far more tiger than bee. Originally $47.95, it is on sale for $15 in size small.

With a flat rate shipping rate of $5, it does not matter how much you buy. With Canada Post’s shipping rates sharply increasing (trust me, I just shipped something small one province over and it cost me $14), this is a very good deal on shipping as well.

Three Natural Beauty Sales

Posted by on July 22, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Three Natural Beauty Sales

As some of you may know, I have about the most reactive skin you can get. Thus, I use all natural skin products, which are not exactly inexpensive. Right now three of my favourite natural cosmetic and beauty product boutiques are having sales you need to check out.

This company is easily my favourite among the natural beauty websites. Their customer service is fantastic, and they have a great selection of products. In their sale section, you should check out the miniOrganics Baby Basics Gift Bag that was $80 and now is $60.99. The set includes the Gentle Baby Bar ($12.50 value) Protective Diaper (Nappy) Balm ($29.95 value), Superfine Jojoba Oil ($49 value), and a cute tote. This makes a lovely baby shower gift. I am going to be switching to all natural perfume and this Roots Rose Radish – Cedarwood Myrrh & Clove Solid Perfume is on my list to try. Originally $55, it is now on sale for $41.99. Shipping is free on orders of $75.

The Fresh Face sale is full of some of my favourite brands and products I am currently using. I highly recommend the Yarok Feed Your Volume Conditioner that was $36 and is now $30 along with the matching Shampoo (which is currently sold out) for the same sale price. I have the most temperamental hair: thick and heavy. I find it nearly impossible to get any volume out of it, yet Yarok does wonders for my hair in the summer. I can go three days between washes without any problems. You also need to check out the S.W. Basics Cleanser and that entire line because they are an inexpensive option for natural beauty products. The cleanser was $27 and is now $22.95. Shipping is free on orders of $50.

Saffron Rouge Canada is offering 20% off select products for their birthday sale. Not only that, the first 50 orders will receive a free red flower Ocean Body Lotion (3 oz / 85g) gift and any order of $150 or more will be entered in a draw to win their entire order for free. That is all pretty cool; now let us look at the deals. This erbaviva Sunscreen SPF 30 is on sale from $23 down to $18.40. Kahina Giving Beauty’s popular Argan Oil is also on sale from $40 down to $32. Shipping depends on how much your are spending. There are also some great Saffron Rouge coupon codes you can team up with the sale to get free gifts with purchase.

Escents Aromatherapy Canada: 50% Off Bath Bombs

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Escents Aromatherapy Canada: 50% Off Bath Bombs

Receive 50% off Bath Bombs both in store and online at Escents Aromatherapy Canada.

Click here to shop bath bombs @ Escentsaromatherapy.com now

Bath Bombs regularly retail for $4.95 each but during this sale they only cost $2.49 apiece. I could use one every time I take a bath, and I like to take baths regularly, so my bath bomb expenses could add up quickly at regular price. I like this deal because it is everything I want for a bath in one little ball for less than the cost of a coffee these days.

Would those who are not stressed out raise their hands? For the rest of the crowd, check out the Stress Relief Fizzy Bath Bomb (4.2 oz) chocked full of great essential oils to help us relax. This bath bomb features Neroli essential oil and Bergamot essential oil to sooth away your worries. The bath bomb base is all natural baking soda for a relaxing and skin friendly bath experience.

For those days when work, the gym, or even fun has just got the best of your body, use a Muscle Relief Fizzy Bath Bomb in your bath water to relax your aching muscles. The bomb contains Cypress and Peppermint essential oils, which increase circulation and reduce inflammation. It is great for sore bodies in need of a little extra rest.

During the summer heat, I have a terrible time getting to sleep. It does not help that the sun often stays up later than I do. This Night Time Fizzy Bath Bomb would be an excellent addition to my nighttime ritual. With dreamy Lavender and Chamomile essential oils, this bath bomb will have you playing with the Sandman in no time at all. Just try not to fall asleep in the bathtub. At only $2.49 a bath bomb, I could certainly see buying a bunch of these.

I price compared with 120g bath bombs and most of them cost $5+ so this deal is quite the bomb. As this deal is available both in store and online, you can avoid shipping charges by simply going to your local store. If you do want to buy online, shipping is $10 or free on orders of $75 or more. If you are placing a larger order, (maybe team up with some girlfriends or load up on a year’s supply of bath bombs), then you can also score an extra 20% off orders of $75 with coupon code INSIDER20.

American Apparel Canada: Chiffon Long Skirt $15 (Was $52)

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 7:30 PM

American Apparel Canada: Chiffon Long Skirt $15 (Was $52)

I found this Chiffon single-layer long skirt in the American Apparel Canada clearance sale for only $15, originally $52.

This is the perfect skirt for summer. Enjoy the lightweight chiffon fabric, which will keep you cool on hot days and float around your body in a light breeze. The single layer means this skirt is sheer. Wear it as a not so covering cover-up on the beach, over a swimsuit, or layer it with some fun bodysuits. Pair this skirt with your favourite tap shorts or other breezy bottoms for a cool summer outfit. You could even just wear a long shirt tucked in with this skirt and the double layer of fabric around your bottom would be sufficient.

This skirt is available in sizes XS/S or M/L and comes in ten different colours: red, grenadine, dent de lion, bubble gum, Tahiti, Blarney, fluorescent red, neon orange, neon yellow, or cobalt.  At 71% off, this skirt is a really good deal.

I also found the double-layered version of this skirt for those who want a little more coverage. However, it is only on sale in one colour: Majesty (purple). The Majesty double layer chiffon skirt was $66 and is now only $15 as well, so drop that skirt in your cart as well. Still available in sizes XS/S and M/L. You have to click the colour and size to see the discount.

These skirts are out of the ‘up to 90% off’ American Apparel clearance sale that is going on right now. There are so many great deals on men, women, and children’s clothing in that sale. Women’s clothing starts at just $3 like this Sheer Jersey Sleeveless V that was $34 and is now $3. There are also many deals for only $5, $10, and $15 each. I will be shopping for some new shirts in their sale section.

If you are a LeClub Member, which is free to join, you can use the following coupon code to get an extra 10% off your purchase of clearance items.

  • Coupon Code: LCONLY
  • Discount: extra 10% off clearance
  • Expiry: 27th July 2014

If you are loading up on a bunch of basics or maybe starting back to school clothing shopping for the kids, then it is worth signing up for the LeClub for the extra 10% off. On a $60 order that is equivalent to an extra $6 savings.

American Apparel Canada offers free shipping on orders of $60 or more. I suggest reaching this minimum so you do not have to pay $8 for shipping.

Dr. Martens Canada: 40% Off Sale

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Dr. Martens Canada: 40% Off Sale

Receive 40% off select Dr. Martens during their summer sale. All prices are as marked on their website.

The Beckett in Union Jack Anarchy Fine Canvas is one of the boots on sale. The fabric base is a faded Union Jack with Anarchy style symbols ‘painted’ on top. The combo looks cool and these boots would look great paired with jeans and an over-sized t-shirt.  Originally $169.99, the boot is on sale for $99.99 and is available in sizes UK5, UK6, and UK7. I run about a UK5 – UK6 (US7 – US8) depending upon style. These boots certainly have a rebel quality to them.

Dr. Martens makes some decidedly ‘normal’ looking shoes as well. If you are not a fan of the usual Dr. Martens aesthetic but want to experience their legendary comfort, try out the Mana Sandal. I have linked to the black version, but they are also available in a dark brown and a light brown. The shoe features a sleek profile and ultra-lightweight construction as well as a very comfortable sole. Originally $69.99, these shoes are now on sale for $39.99. I doubt anyone would guess you are wearing Dr. Martens if you bought these and yet your feet would be in perfect bliss because of that legendary sole.

I would love a pair of knee high boots – they are sort of a dream of mine – so these Britians immediately attracted my eye. Sure, black boots are the standard but white is more eye-catching because few people wear white leather these days. Originally $259.99, these boots are now on sale for $159.99. They have a smooth leather upper with a zipper for easy access once you have laced them to the correct tightness for your legs. I love the extra thick Quad Retro sole, as it would add a few inches to my short frame. I am sure they would be incredibly comfortable as well. I do wonder how wide the calf opening is though. Sizes run from UK3 up to UK8, which equals US5 up to US10 in women’s sizes. I want to wear these with black mini skirt and Black Milk bodysuit. That combination would look amazing.

Dr. Martens Canada offers free shipping on orders of $75 or more across Canada. No exchanges are allowed on items that are bought at a discount, refunds only. At least they allow refunds!

Bootlegger Canada: $5 Women’s Shirts

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Bootlegger Canada: $5 Womens Shirts

Bootlegger Canada has a great sales section with deals on both women and men’s clothing. I was moseying on through their selection of women’s clothing and found a few shirts on sale for only $4.99 a piece!

There are three shirts on sale for $4.99. First is the Kismet Lucy, which is a baseball style shirt with long sleeves. The shirt is white with yellow colour blocking and features a notched v-neck. It is slightly sheer, so I suggest wearing a neutral coloured bra with it: maybe avoid black or flaming red. Originally, this shirt retailed for $29.50 but it is now on sale for just $4.99. Sizes medium and large are still available.

The Kismet Vandermeer comes with many options! Do not let this basic cut out tank fool you, it has a funky criss-cross back with a lower back cut out, which is awesome for styling with your favourite leggings or a pair of shorts. There are also five colours to choose from: dark grey, dark navy, Miami mint, pink, and soft sky. Across the five colours, you can find sizes extra-small, small, medium, and large. Extra-large is completely sold out. Originally $22.50, this shirt is now on sale for $4.99. This is my favourite shirt of the three.

The Kismet Luca Leopard gets an honourable mention, as it is only available in a size extra-small. It is a leopard print racer back tank with an all over leopard print. Originally $18.50, this top is now on sale for $4.99.

Other amazing shirts start at only $9.99 with many shirts over 75% off. I encourage you to check out the Warner Twill, which was $45 and is now $9.99 and the Dex cropped polka dot sweater that was $49 and is now $9.99. Both are discounted greatly and available in almost all sizes.

Now, Bootlegger offers $1 shipping on orders of $40 or more with the coupon code 1SHIP. However, if you are just picking up a couple $5 shirts, then you are probably not going to hit that minimum. One of the things I love about Bootlegger is their other shipping option: ship to any Bootlegger store for free. With around 150 locations across Canada, there is sure to be a Bootlegger near you. I want to buy one of those Vandermeer tanks but I am not planning to get anything else so I checked the store locator and found out there are two Bootlegger stores in my city.

My Inner Fire Canda Coupon Code: 25% Discount On Yoga Gear

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 8:30 PM

My Inner Fire Canda Coupon Code: 25% Discount On Yoga Gear

My Inner Fire Canada makes leggings out of recycled water bottles, which is one of the coolest things ever. This Vancouver based company is offering 25% off your order of any of their yoga wear.

Click here to shop @ My Inner Fire Canada now

  • Coupon Code: GOODLIFE14
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 31st December 2014

I wear leggings about five out of seven days a week, so this company is pretty much a natural fit for me. I am also very environmentally conscious, so their use of recycled water bottles really impresses my inner tree-hugger.

Inner Fire Canada makes so many beautiful products. Their Infinity scarves are stunning to behold, with the Dark Forest pattern my absolute favourite. The scarf retails for $44.95 but comes down to $33.71 after coupon. The scarf is made of bamboo, polyester and spandex. I really like this graphic because it is somewhat creepy and mystical all at the same time.

They make tops for both men and women as well. This C(OM)-UNITY – Men’s / Unisex T-Shirt is one of the designs they carry. The shirt is hand printed with eco-friendly water-based inks. Originally $29.95, the shirt is on sale for $22.46. The shirt itself is an American Apparel base, which means it was ethically made in their USA based factory.

The leggings are the main attraction at My Inner Fire. They are made from 88% recycled polyester from water bottles and 12% spandex. Currently they have a dozen designs to choose from including these Geometrica Leggings (my favourite design). The leggings feature a wide yoga band for comfort as well as gusset and flat-lock seams for both flexibility and a no-chafe fit. Their printing process makes sure that no ink is wasted and that the colour of your leggings will not fade over time. The leggings retail for $79.95, but you can pick up a pair for just $59.96.

I find the size chart on the leggings a bit small. Perhaps it is because these are designed for people who are a bit fitter – hey, it is yoga gear after all. Their size large measures a 33″ hip with a 30″ waist. As there is 12% spandex in these leggings, I have no doubt I could fit the waist, but my hips are much larger than 33″ so I would be concerned about the fit across the hips. I wear Black Milk Leggings in a size large, so I would be curious to try out these leggings in comparison. I would love to be able to go local and they are priced competitively even before the coupon code.

Shipping was $6 to my location when I generated a cart.

For this and any future My Inner Fire coupon codes, check out our forum.

Five Ways To Save Money On Books

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Five Ways To Save Money On Books

Both my husband I are major bookworms. We have three bookshelves filled with amazing finds and fantastic reads. While he loves traditional fantasy books, I gravitate more towards manga and graphic novels with a healthy mix of classics. No matter what genre of text, books cost money. Here are five ways to save money on your reading habit.

1. The Library

Libraries are one of the most wonderful places in the world. They allow you read endless books for free (or a small library card fee). Better yet, you do not keep any of those books. All those books you think are going to be great that turn into mediocre reads: you can just return them! If you do find any gems, then there is nothing stopping you from putting it on your ‘to buy’ book list. I find that most books I read are one-timers: it takes a very special book to become a repeat occurrence in my word. The library is like a dating website: I weed through all the possible options until I find the one.

2. Library Book Sales

Every library that I have lived near has a large library sale at least once a year. Books are super cheap and condition varies depending on how popular the book was and how many copies they have. My old library had a ‘fill a box’ option on the last day of their big sale: fill a box full of books for a flat $10. Library sales are an inexpensive way to add books to your own collection without paying full price. They are also a wonderful way to support your local library and keep it open for the next generation. Library sales also include incredible diversity from children’s books to manga to biographies and more. Expect to pay only a few dollars per book.

3. Go Used

While it is so incredibly tempting to buy books brand new with companies like Amazon.ca and Chapters Indigo giving us books at just a click away, try going used. This is not only for the benefit of your pocket books but also for the benefit of the environment. Every used book taken home is a used book kept out of a landfill. Get to know your local used book stores very well and see if you can leave a list of ‘wants’ with them. Check out local garage sales, local classifieds like Kijiji and Craigslist, and online used bookstores. I purchased The Complete Winnie The Pooh off of Kijiji for 50% off the retail price and have spent many an hour in my local used bookstores. I also like purchasing from scratch and dent sections at places like Book Outlet because these books, unless bought, will probably end up in a dump somewhere. Used books tend to be 50 – 75% off their original retail prices.

4. Go Digital

The digital world is blossoming with potential. Buying eBooks from companies like Amazon.ca and Kobo can save you both money and shelf space. While I have not found Kobo’s options substantially cheaper than the physical copies, the coupons and sales they have can certainly tip the scales in favour of eBooks. If you love the classics, then I highly recommend eBooks. You can get a plethora of classics for free because the copyright has expired on them. There is also the option of audiobooks. Companies like Audible are popular and you get a book credit for a set price. Depending on what you want to read, this can be another option for saving money.

5. Book Trading

When knee-deep in your own library, do not forget about your friends. Lend books out, ask to borrow books, and exchange books with your friends and family. Not only will you spend $0 on your next good read, you will also be able to talk with someone who has already read the book. I also encourage you to offer books you no longer want to friends and let them know you are open to adding new books to your collection if they are getting rid of any.

Do you have any tips on saving money on books?

Dealfind Canada: Sutra Curling Iron & Blow Dryer Deals

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Dealfind Canada: Sutra Curling Iron & Blow Dryer Deals

Dealfind has two fine deals on hair styling accessories currently. First, pick up a Sutra Curling Iron for $35 including tax, plus a $15 shipping charge ($275 value). You can also purchase a Sutra Blow Dryer for $54 including tax, plus $20 shipping ($350 value).

Let us talk about the curling iron first. You are paying $50 (including shipping) for an iron that is listed for $275 on Sutra’s website. While the main pictures show a pink curling iron, you actually get choices in both size and colour. You can choose between:

  • Pink – 13 mm curling iron
  • Black – 19 mm curling iron
  • Pink – 25 mm curling iron
  • Pink – 32 mm curling iron
  • Black – 25 mm curling iron

The size determines how tight or lose your curls are. This curling iron has a 100% solid ceramic / ionic heating element that heats up in less than 30 seconds. With a 360-degree swivel cord, you will not get tangled up while curling your hair. The system also comes with a thermal glove to keep your hand burn-free. I have always wanted really large ringlets to float around my face, thus I would purchase the 32 mm curling iron.

The Sutra Professional Blow Dryer will cost you $74 once you include shipping. It is a lightweight unit that generates infrared ceramic heat. The 1600W – 2000W motor gives you a shorter drying time and two concentrators help direct the heat to where it is most needed on your hair. The blow dryer only comes in pearl white. This unit does retail on Sutra’s website for $350.

I am not very familiar with this brand, but professional quality hair-styling tools tend to be expensive. Deals like this certainly help you save money. My hair tends to be extremely low maintenance, but even I have days where I want a change. Since I have straight hair, my main wish is for it to be curly. I especially like that idea during the summer: soft curls framing my face while lying on the beach or playing in the ocean. Currently I do not have any way to curl my hair, but this curling iron is affordable as long as I used it often enough to justify the purchase.

Shipping will take about three to four weeks. There are unlimited purchases per person (and as gifts); however, this item is final sale (unless defective).

The Bay Canada: Sale on Women’s Swimwear

Posted by on July 18, 2014 at 11:30 PM

The Bay Canada: Sale on Womens Swimwear

I found this great little up to 50% off swimwear sale at The Bay Canada. While browsing, I realized that there were many pieces of swimwear on sale for much higher than that. Thus, if you are in the market for a new swimsuit, then you should check out this sale.

This Calvin Klein Bandeau Swim Dress is one of the first pieces I noticed in the sale. Originally $149, the one-piece swimsuit is now on sale for $55.88. The swim dress features molded cups and ruched sides for a flattering appearance. You can choose from black or pink, as both appear to be available still in all sizes.

This Tankini Bandeau Top by Be Creative originally cost $78, and is now on sale for $29.25. The top features removable straps so you can either wear it strapless for a no tan-line look, or with straps for additional support. The top also has ruffles around the bust, which makes this a good option for smaller busts as the ruffles will make your chest look larger. This top is available in sizes 8, 10, and 12.

With a plain black top, you can mix and match with practically anything. The Point Zero Fold Over Bottom is a steal at only $15, when it originally retailed for $40. It is just a basic bottom, but at that price, it is an easy buy. Sizes 8, 14, and 16 are in stock currently. I highly suggest matching these bottoms up with the Point Zero Blush Stripe Tankini Top  as it features similar colours. Sizes 14 and 16 are available, which is great because the bottoms above are also available in those sizes. The top is halter style with ties at center front and features removable soft foam cups. Originally $50, the top is now on sale for $18.75. You can also get the Blush Stripe Bandini Top for the same price from Point Zero, and it has a better size range available.

For lane swimmers, there are tons of options available. This Flow Active Empire Cut Swimsuit by Speedo was $90 and is now on sale for $33.75. I never had much luck with Speedo myself as the fit was always off. I did much better with Roots brand swimwear. This 1pc Color Splice by Roots is available in two colour ways. Originally $75, the swimsuits are now discounted to $37.50 each.

Receive free shipping on $49 or more with your Bay Card.

Book Outlet Canada: BOGO Free Bibles

Book Outlet Canada has a buy one get one free deal on Bibles this weekend. If yours is looking like the dog chewed on it and then spit it up, maybe it is time to retire old faithful and bring a new book into the flock.

There are forty pages of different Bibles to choose from if you are looking for a different translation, or perhaps the same translation but different study notes. I was browsing the section and came across these cool Archaeological Study Bibles in different versions like King James and New International. This edition of the Bible provides historical context with articles and full-color photographs. This Archaeological Study Bible (NIV, Study, Black Bonded Leather) really attracted my attention because of the beautiful black leather cover. The kist price for this Bible is $79.99, but it is on sale for $44.99 at Book Outlet.

Of course, the beauty of a BOGO free offer is you can get a second one for free. Bibles can be very expensive books so this offer is very nice. I picked out this Compact/Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible (KJV, 1544, Black-Bonded Leather, Gilded-Gold Page Edges) as another great deal because it originally cost $39.99 and is now on sale for $19.99. However, you can get this entire $20 Bible for free when you buy another one of equal or greater value. This is the kind of Bible my grandmother would have liked as she had trouble reading small font.

Do you want to maximize your savings while getting two exceptional Bibles? Pick up the Contemporary Comparative Side-by-Side Bible, which comes with three translations: NIV, NKJV, & NLT. It is a wonderful Bible for comparing deviations in translations over time and seeing how different translations change the meaning of the text. This Bible originally retailed for $99.99, and it is now on sale for $54.99. Pay for this Bible and get the Archeological Bible above for free: a value of $45!

There are Bibles for everyone at Book Outlet. They have Children’s Bibles, Women’s Bibles, Bilingual Bibles, Spanish Bibles, Study Bibles, and more. Whatever you need, they most likely have it. As religious texts like this tend to be on the pricier side, I thought this was a good enough deal to share.

Shipping is $3.99 for the first item, and then an additional $0.75 per item, which is not bad considering the price of some of these Bibles.

Little Burgundy Canada: 40 – 60% Off Men’s Vans

Little Burgundy Canada: 40   60% Off Mens Vans

Little Burgundy Canada is selling men’s Vans shoes for 40 to 60% off their original prices. If you must have a pair of Vans on your feet, then hurry on over to this sale to pick out your next pair of sneakers.

The discount all depends on the style you choose. I picked out these Vans OTF Renfred because the upper fabric has a distinctly thatched appearance, sort of like old basket weaving. it is very different to see this pattern, though very subtle, on a sneaker. The shoes come in either black or navy. This is one of the odd times I actually prefer the navy over the back. I think the lining on the navy is nicer (white with stars), the laces really make the navy stand out, and the back pull-tab (navy with white stars) is also a nice accent. The navy version makes the black sneakers look so plain. Originally $120, the sneakers are now on sale for $45.49.

The Vans Seasonal Elstan is another good solid shoe choice. Again, it is amoung the higher discounted shoes as it was $65 and is now $27.99. There are few sizes left in the black, but there are five sizes still in stock in the light grey. This basic sneaker would make a good beach shoe, or something to wear while running errands or barbequing in the back yard. I am not crazy about the light grey, but grey has never done my skin tone any favours so I am biased against it.

The Vans Ider shoes are also on sale, but price depends upon colour. If you want the light green or light blue pairs, you will pay $34.99, originally $65. However, if you are happy with peach coloured shoes, then you can pick up a pair for just $24.99. The peach is actually a pretty good summer colour for anyone needed inexpensive footwear that is comfortable and fashionable. There are many sizes left in that colour as well. My favourite colour is the light green, but to save $10 I would be willing to go with peach as it is certainly nice enough.

Right now, Little Burgundy is also offering free shipping on all orders with no minimum. So now is the perfect time to be picking out an inexpensive pair of shoes, as there are no extra shipping charges.

Ever worn a pair of Vans? What do you think of the brand?

Kobo Coupon Code: 30% Off Select eBooks

Kobo has released a 30% off coupon code on select eBooks this weekend. Dig into something new this summer and experience another world.

Click here to shop select books @ Kobo Canada now

  • Coupon Code: VACATION30
  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expiry: 21st July 2014

The books included in this offer are through the above link. Remember to click the “browse more…” links besides each category name so you can see all the books in the specific category that qualify for this coupon code. It is not just the few books they show you as an example. If you are just browsing the website, make sure “Items Eligible For Promo Codes” is checked off in whichever section you are in as that option narrows your book choices down to eBooks this coupon will work on.

The categories in the sale include:

  • Fiction
  • Mystery
  • Kids’ and Teen Titles
  • Non-fiction

Out of those four categories, my favourite is mystery. I have been a mystery reader since I was young and first read the complete Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I generally judge my mystery books by their names. This book Darwins Nightmare by Mike Knowles sounds like a pretty funky mystery about a man who does very bad stuff for a living and then makes one mistake (or good deed, your choice) and the repercussions of that event. The book currently costs $9.34 but after coupon, it comes down to $6.54.

Walking into the Ocean by David Whellams is a British mystery that sounds right up my alley. After all, most my favourite mysteries have been British like Sherlock and Miss Marple. This book is to be the first in a set of three books about a veteran Scotland Yard Chief Inspector investigating serial killings in the pastoral lands of good ol’ England. The book retails for $7.18, but after coupon code, it comes down to $5.03.

There are many books to choose from, and it is always fun finding a new favourite author or a series you just cannot put down. Sure, there are the sleepless nights where you are up to 3am hovered over your eReader, but it is all worth it. This summer I joined Goodreads and I am keeping track of all the books I have read from now on. It is a nice way to look back and see what I have read and what I thought of it.

For this and any future Kobo coupon codes, always check our forum.
