Sale Roundup: The 10 Best Memorial Day Sales

Hello summer! I've missed you.

While Memorial Day weekend serves as the unofficial kick off to summer, it's also a great weekend for shopping. Fortunately retailers are playing the game, too, in the form of deep discounts on various items.

MarketWatch recommends to avoid buying cars, power tools, gym equipment, jewelry, laptops and televisions this weekend. That leaves a lot of bargains left to be had. Here's my unofficial rundown of the top 10 Memorial Day sales you can't afford to miss.

Every female TV anchor I know needs a closet full of sheath dresses in bright colors that POP on-camera. Trina Turk nails it. Her price point is typically higher than what I like to spend but when she does a sale, I like to stock up on her frocks because they are perfect for work. I also adore her jumpsuits.
Shop Trina Turk

Speaking of clothes for TV anchor-types, a closet Tahari ASL is another must-have for female anchors/reporters and working women. Their clothing is absolutely affordable and comes in a variety of silhouettes that flatter every body type. Tahari is offering 40% off everything. I order from the site consistently and am always impressed with their packaging and commitment to customer service.

Coach is bringing it. I went through a Coach purse phase in the 90's but completely abandoned their bags in the 2000's. The American brand is now offering much more interesting pieces and this weekend a number of their select items are an additional 30% off.

This is the perfect weekend to shop for summer beauty products: sunscreen, moisturizer, makeup, etc. Skin Care RX is offering 28% off purchases this weekend with code SALEW. ELTA MD is, hands-down, the best sunscreen there is. Their UV Sport is my go-to sunscreen for summer. Read and watch my review HERE. Their products are included in the Skin Care RX's sale.

Good luggage will change your travel game. When I finally purchased my Tumi carry-on, at the Tumi outlet in Grand Prairie, TX I stopped checking bags (on trips of 4 days or less 😉) and never looked back. Tumi is hands-down the smart person's luggage company. Their design is pragmatic, stylish and functional for the busy traveler. They have some great pieces on-sale this weekend that can help you get through the airport much more efficiently. Quality luggage is worth every penny.

When you are traveling internationally, do you speak the language? Learning a few basic words in the language of the country you're visiting makes the world of difference. I once had a conversation with a Parisian cab driver and all I said was "Oui," "Non," and "Je comprends". He kissed me when I got out of the car because he said my French was "très bien!" Rosetta Stone is offering $70 off a 24-month language subscription.

Ralph Lauren is offering an extra 30% off select styles through May 30th with code MEMDay. I consistently buy a bunch of my daughter's clothing from their sale selections and I'll tell you this: they last. From playground playdates to running around pools, Ralph Lauren's kids clothing is durable. Bonus: the pieces always do well when I resell them after Jordan has grown out of them.

From yoga mats and foam rollers to balance ball chairs (I have all of them), Gaiam offers great fitness products.

If you're looking for clothes and shoes, adidas is offering some outstanding discounts through June 6.

Finally, you can't talk about sales and not mention Nordstrom. Their half-yearly sale never disappoints. The retailer is offering 40% off select items through June 4.

Curious, do your Memorial Day weekend plans include some shopping?

How To Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

How to avoid holiday weight gain

This is the least you will weigh all year.

How does that sound? Awful if you ask me. The fact is that Halloween unofficially kicked off what some call "The Weight Gain Season".

Cornell University study recently determined that "In the U.S., weight patterns begin rising at Thanksgiving and peak around Christmas and New Year's." 😳

Exercise...The World's Best Medicine

Exercise, how to love exercise

What if I told you that you in just 30 minutes from right now you could feel better, think more clearly and improve your health. Does such a magic bullet exist?

Yes. It's called exercise. If you go for a 30-minute walk, right now, I guarantee you will feel better. Simple as that.

Not only is it good for you physically but it also helps your brain. Ever notice how your best ideas seem to come to you when you're going for a walk? There's something to it. It also boosts your memory, improves your concentrations and slows cognitive decline.

Tory Burch Saddle Bag Review

I'm having a saddle bag obsession. Not the "Oh crap, it's bikini season and my thighs look like pillows!"

More like, "I need one of those chic, timeless crossbody bags" for summer summer.

Cuyana Leather Laptop Unboxing & Review

I bought the wine-colored sleeve. Watch my video for a review!
Why are all the office and work accessories either butt-ugly bulky black or too cutesy?

You know what I'm talking about: they're either overly masculine or too dorm-girl feminine.

Finding chic, stylish yet functional accessories that speak to professional women is tougher than finding a skinny margarita that actually tastes good (and doesn't give you a hangover). PSST: Here's a good margarita recipe.

Cuyana's Leather Laptop Sleeve absolutely solves a chic,
working girl problem with its sleek, timeless lines.

Super Simple Diet Tips: Put Down Your Fork To Lose Weight

Did you know that setting down your fork between bites during a meal is one of the most effective (and simplest) ways to lose weight?

This works because it forces you to eat more slowly. Eating slowly is important because it takes your brain 20 minutes from the time you start eating to send signals to your stomach that you're getting full. There are a ton of studies to back this up.

In fact a 2014 TCU study found that whether you're overweight or not, participants who ate slowly were significantly less hungry 60 minutes after the start of a slow meal than after the start of a meal during which they ate rapidly

8G Greens Superfood Supplement Review

8G Greens, 8G Greens Review 8G Greens Superfood Supplement Review, 8G Greens Tablet Review

While a $12 bottle of green juice is great once in a while, it's not a practical solution for people who work, travel and are running around all day. It also gets expensive. 8G Greens Superfood Supplement is a phenomenal solution. 

You can carry the little tube of 10 tables with you anywhere you go. You simply drop them into a glass of water and they dissolve, Alka Seltzer-style, into a tangy, citrus drink that is really tasty.
