Jessica Simpson Military JacketHey guys look what I found! I have a military jacket very similar to this that I bought, a no name brand and I always get compliments on it! Then, I wanted to get another jacket, and I found this Jessica Simpson Military Jacket in stores, but I didn't want to pay $59 for it. So being the awesome bargain shopper that I am (thanks mom for all the money saving lessons), I found this website where you get the jacket on sale for only $39! That's like a $20 savings or like.....40% savings? Look, I'm not that good at math. (Hold for calculator) Ok, a 33% savings. That's pretty good for not doing much!! So take advantage of this now, military jackets are hot hot hot and you will be sure to get many compliments!

Is Groupon a Scam?

Is Groupon a Scam?Is Groupon a scam you ask? So, you're telling me that if 100 people sign up to get a massage at a local massage place, we can get a $150 massage for just $50?? Sounds too good to be true. And it normally would be. But I think we are entering a period where it isn't too good to be true, it's true! It's all for real and it is amazing!!

I have single handedly purchased about 10 Groupons from all the deals they throw up daily and I have enjoyed every last one of them! My sister is a huge fan of the site and she is the one that told me about it and she also does a lot of shopping on Groupons. She got her eyebrows tinted prednisone 100mg daily at a very swanky LA salon, a massage at a beautiful spa in Orange County, $30 for $60 worth of stuff at Nordstrom Rack, and even cooking classes for me and my husband as a Christmas gift this past December.

Groupon is an UH mazing and fabulous place you should go to try out local restaurants in your area, hotel deals and even fashion savings. So is Groupon a scam? Hell to the NO! It is a GOD SEND! I love love love Groupons and I only wish I had thought of this brilliant idea first. It truly is an age where in order to make money, you need to find out a service that can benefit everyone and make everyone happy and I think that's what Groupon does.

Look, I'm sharing this with you guys because today I took my friend out to lunch and used my Groupon and he didn't know what it was. I was in shock because I thought this awesome service had reached everyone, but it hasn't. So if you're not already taking advantage of this, do it! You will not be getting scammed or jipped, the only thing you'll be seeing are greens in your pocket from all the money you've saved. Jump on the Groupon boat, don't forget to read the fine print like what day your Groupon expires (and be sure to use it) and enjoy the ride!

Have you used Groupon? If so, leave a comment and tell me your favorite savings so far!

How to Dress like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Love them or hate them, you just can't seem to get enough of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. From the cars, to the palatial homes and all the upscale fashion in between, it's hard not to feel a little envious. Enter Style With Anna. I'll show you how to get the look of a housewife, but without all the drama. This post will give you a general idea of what you should be searching for when you're out shopping with your girlfriends. Basically, some key elements that say "Housewife of Beverly Hills".

 

Up the Bling
Besides that camera filter that they use when filming the show that makes everything feel dreaming and sparkly, these housewives are no stranger to the bling. While they may be shopping at Harry Winston or some overpriced jewelry boutique, diamonds are actually not that rare, hard to find, or even that expensive. A great way to get the same look of a diamond without the price tag is to look into man made diamonds. A well known synthetic diamond is the cubic zirconium. But technology has come a long way since then.

Now a days, synthetic, lab created, simulate diamonds are done so well, the only way you can tell is if someone did a test on it. The cut, color and clarity is all comparable to the highest quality diamond and emits the same amount of bling. A great way to get a really nice piece of jewelry for a fraction of the price. If you're just going through a "I want to dress like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" phase, you can look into any kind of cheap bling from stores like Forever21 or H&M to get the same look. Just make sure you sparkle and don't be afraid to be over the top! Here are a few of my favorite things to bling in:

 

Take Care of the Hair
Whether your hair is curly, wavy, or straight, make sure it's healthy and it shines! Kyle's hair in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is just long and straight. But seriously, that girl looks like she is in a Pantene Pro V commercial. It really shows that you take care of yourself and you have nice rich shiny locks. Wherever you go, whether you're going out to dinner or if you're just going to the bank, make sure to not just throw your hair up in a ponytail. Take some time out to give it a little style, a little spray, a little product to give off the look like maybe you have a personal hairstylist. Because that is very LA! Here are some inexpensive hair products that can really make a difference:

 

Take Yourself to New Heights!
Ladies, you thought you couldn't wear heels before? Well you better start getting used to them if you want to learn how to dress like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Those women are not afraid of heights and it shows with their footwear! Platforms! Platforms! Platforms! You know, since the heels are platforms, they really are not that hard to walk in at all! You can add several inches to yourself and still be...well, as comfortable as you can be in heels. Don't be afraid to wear shoes that are ornate, blingy and very high.

I suggest getting to know your shoes. I like to know my shoes by how many hours I can wear each one before I start walking like a horse with broken legs because my feet hurt so bad. If you're just going to a dinner or somewhere where there will be more sitting and standing than long walks, put on the heels and let them be the main player to your ensemble. You'll be sure to turn heads! For my favorites selection of platforms, I am going to be mixing lower end but equally cute shoes with higher end brand named shoes. Sometimes you need to treat yourself to something extra special:

Dry Chapped Lips? Try Fresh Sugar Lips Treatment

Ladies and gentle-ladies, I have found the cure for dry chapped lips! Growing up, I always had an obsession with chap sticks. I literally had a lingerie drawer dedicated to just chap sticks that I collected. All the colors of the rainbow of different flavored Lipsmackers and all of the different lip moisturizers of Blistex, smooth lips and all generic brands in between were piled on top of each other.

Seriously, I loved chap stick. To me, I could never get my lips as smooth as I wanted it to be. Even when I applied chap stick when I had dry chapped lips, they would still be peeling and it wasn't attractive. So how could I find a chap stick and not only moisturized my lips in a time of need, but CURE the problem without me having to reapply constantly? Well today is your lucky day and you should be happy to finally read this article, as I'm going to tell you the BEST dry chapped lips cure out there.

fresh sugar lip treatmentAre you ready for it? It's called, Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. This product is UH-MAY-ZING! So amazing that I can't even spell "amazing" correctly to express how happy I feel that I've finally found this product. I can finally ditch my drawer of chap stick and narrow it down to one. Now you're going to pay more than what you would normally pay for Blistex or any other chap stick product. But if you're seriously looking for a dry chapped lips cure and you are too lazy or forget to constantly reapply chap stick all the time, then this product is for you.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment can be purchased at any Sephora store. Sephora is also located in some Macy's stores. If not, you can buy it cheaper on amazon or ebay. Wherever you purchase it, get excited about it because it's really something that I really believe in and I know you'll love it!

Fresh Sugar Lips Treatment also makes a great gift to yourself or for someone else for the holidays -- they will be thanking you after they use this product. It comes in different tints so it acts as a chapstick and it gives your lips that healthy tint. According to my girlfriends, Fresh products like their facial cleansers are also supposed to be really good. Keep in mind that these products aren't cheap and they hardly go on sale. But when you find something that works, it is going to have so much more value to you.
