Frugal Snob: Soap & Glory You Cube Set

I can’t say enough good things about Soap & Glory! Forget people who say it’s vein because beauty products truly have the power to impact our mood and Soap & Glory’s You Cube Set ($25) does it in the best way possible.

Frugal Snob: TJ Maxx/Marshalls Holiday Gift Ideas and Giveaway!

I often tweet about my Chinese aunts’ obsession with TJ Maxx— when they arrive to the US from Asia, one of the first places they want to shop at is TJ Maxx/Marshalls (followed by Neiman Marcus and Hermes of course, there is a method to their shopping madness!). This season we partnered up with TJ […]

Frugal Snob: UK Brand, I Love…Cosmetics, Comes to the US

I don’t tend to like knock-offs and I Love…Cosmetics was clearly inspired by Philosophy, but I still can’t help loving the line…look at the colors! The taglines! The packaging! The UK brand just recently expanded into the US and is now available at Duane Reade and Wal-Mart stores here in NYC. I was sent the […]

AHAVA Mineral Botanic Micro Peeling Body Wash: Scrub A Dub Dub

AHAVA is quickly becoming my all time Frugal Snob favorite beauty line. And I shouldn’t even qualify it by saying it’s a Frugal Snob favorite, it is a favorite all around. Their body treatments and products are incredible. This Micro Peeling Body Wash is no different. It feels so good it begs me to the […]

Frugal Snob: The Body Shop Body Butter Duos

Honestly I didn’t even know The Body Shop still existed! I knew they still made products because I’ve seen them at Sephora, but I can’t remember the last time I saw an actual store and I used to LIVE in the Body Shop circa 15 years ago. Anyway the folks at The Body Shop got […]

Kinderbliss Golf Gear: Boys, Tee Off!

Attention: Tot Snob sale alert! I always stock up on goodies for my boy during the sales. It’s about the only time I really splurge on him since he grows out of clothes faster than I can blink. It’s just not worth paying full retail. Now, I’m not sure how his father will feel about […]
