Motorcycle Leather Jacket : Yes, please!

February 20, 2010

I love, love, love this jacket. Its subtle, yet edgy and perfect for California winters and summers (falls and aprings too!). I like that this jacket is short, and a beautiful tan color yet, has the subtle hints of the “motorcycle” flare with its neck and bottom closures. Great to wear to work or out to the bars, right? From Banana Republic.


Best Candles of the Year: TOCCA

January 27, 2009

Tocca candles are to die for. I kid you not. I’m a huge candle addict. I recently bought a $25 Red Sangria candle from Banana Republic and was sadly disappointed that it burned through in a month and didn’t even smell good. My boyfriend buys cheap Glade candles, which also do not smell. So you can imagine how estatic I was when I received this Tocca candle and I could already smell it through the packaging and through the bag it was in.


The Test: I took it home and burned it and it had an overwhelming sweet smell that radiated throughout my entire apartment. Yma is my favorite because its sweet guava and currant smell is amazing, but I’m sure their other scents are just as great. Plus they are very affordable compared to my $25 Banana Republic candle. Try them…. I bet you will love them too!


Can’t choose just one? Opt for their gift set so you can try try their 4 most popular scents.Cleopatra, Grace, Havana and Kyoto.

Which do you like best?

Leave me a comment below and tell me which sweater I should purchase. Both are from Gap and both are within the $48-$54 range – not a huge difference. The grey sweater also comes in light greyish-purple. Since I opened my credit card at Banana Republic, I have had the urge to shop at their sister stores. Hell, they even gave me a 10% off coupon. I am such a sucker.

I got a deal at Banana Republic!

October 20, 2008

I’m usually not an impulse buyer but yesterday while walking by Banana Republic I saw this jacket and I had to have it. I didn’t fit into a size small (too big) and extra small was too small. Also the jacket was $250. After searching and searching and 2 stores later, I found the same jacket in the petite section of another BR. I quickly grabbed it. Turns out that up until yesterday they had a 30% off outerwear sale! When my jacket rang up at the register it was only $175…then of course I had to open up a BR credit card to get the extra 20% off and I got it for a grand total of $140. Boy, am I proud of my purchase.

Also when I signed up for the new card, I got a coupon book and here’s a tip, for all the online shoppers, use the promotion / coupon code NEWCARD for GAP, Old Navy or Banana Republic for an online 10% discount.
