We are all familiar with Valentine’s Day, or as many refer to it “Singles Awareness Day” that is celebrated every year on February 14th, but have you ever heard of Singles Day. If not, you aren’t alone. It is actually China’s biggest shopping day of the year and a holiday created for people to indulge themselves and other single friends for a day. And it is finally being celebrated here! We’ve teamed up with QVC, who is offering 6 easy payments on the season’s hottest products for their Singles Day celebration, to give you a few ways to treat yourself before the craziness of the holidays begins.
Life gets hectic, especially now, so take some time in the kitchen for yourself. You will likely be surrounded by temptation and excessive amounts of food between the work and family parties you are required to attend so be mindful of what you are eating leading up to those. Start your day with healthy smoothies in a brand new Vitamix blender for $399 or prep your meals in advance in a Le Creuset 6.5 quart dutch oven for $355 to make cooking dinner easier. Whatever you decide to cook, make it a special treat that you haven’t had it a while!
Spas are expensive, so we don’t blame you if now is just not the right time to have a little getaway. That doesn’t mean you can’t give your skin what it needs this winter. You will be surprised how much of a difference a good skincare routine will make. You will quickly fall in love with the philosophy true originals collections, which takes care of your cleansing, smoothing, and overall complexion needs for only $227.70. You will feel and look great with this product all season long! Add one of the many Clarisonic brushes on sale for a deeper clean and nothing will be holding you back.
Who doesn’t love an awkward family moment over the Thanksgiving table? It is a classic. If you aren’t able to be with your family during the holidays this year or maybe just want a little extra communication ability, splurge on a much-needed technology update! Sometimes there is no better remedy for a bad day or an off mood than talking to someone familiar. From on the go technology like the iPod Touch for $299.94 and the iPad Mini 16GB WiFi for $399.96 to the all-encompassing Macbook Pro 13” for $1,489. These will give you access to your loved ones when you want, on your schedule!
Is there any better way to show yourself some love than with a new outfit? There is just something about the fall that makes shopping so much fun! So layer up with a new Issac Mizrahi Cashmere cardigan for $236.42 or a Liz Claiborne New York Heritage Collection Lamb Leather Jacket for $278. You can finish your outfit off with one of the many designer purses that they have for sale as part of Single’s Day event as well. Show off your style for the holiday and stand out from the rest of the crowd!
Whatever you chose to buy today, make sure it is something that you can enjoy! Don’t forget to thank the people in your life that have served for our country as well because while we are all about celebrating you, today is most importantly Veteran’s Day. We want them to remember how much we appreciate what they have done for our country to keep us safe and free.
