Sad or funny?
Although I love waking up every morning to an inbox teeming with prospective deals from sites like Groupon, LivingSocial, Bloomspot, Buy With Me, Gilt City, Lifebooker Loot, and HomeRun (not to mention the Pizzario Uno and Senior Friend Finder e-lists my friends so generously put me on), a really amazing deal only comes so often. Personally, I think I peaked at the American Apparel and Russian Turkish Bathouse coupons. But my easiest way of classifying whether or not to purchase a group coupon is simply by deciding what activities I do and do not trust to purchase at a discounted rate.
Wedding, brides, shopping
I hope you didn窶t just eat your lunch because you窶re about to lose it. Teva just released a high heel version of its classic fug sandal, and priced the darn thing at $330. Sorry, Teva people, but 1) who would wear these and, 2) who would spend that much on them? We窶re at a loss, so we窶ll just let you admire these Grey Ant x Teva Stilettos in action (inexplicably hiking, that is).

Who could forget Lindsay Lohan's famous Mean Girls quote about the Halloween "Slut Rule"? It's funny, because it's true: every girl in the world get's a free pass to show a little too much skin on this one night a year. (Or a little too much poof, in the case of the Snooki Halloween costume). But what happens when the costume industry runs out of slutty firefighters and sexy kittens? Sexy Elmo, and these 9 other shockingly slutty costumes, is what:
Right around now, parents tend to go a little crazy dreaming up Halloween costumes for their kids. We're even guilty of it-it's not even October yet and we've been eyeing Old Navy's Halloween costumes, plus costumes from Pottery Barn Kids and the Gap.
So before we all go completely costume crazy, allow us to draw the line. We love cute costumes and we love funny costumes, but there are some Halloween get-ups that are just wrong on kids. So yes, you should probably pass on that pimp costume for your son and that Jesus ensemble, we'd save that for the Christmas play.
Dress like Rachel Zoe!
To make sure my hair was going to look fabulous for this holiday season, I recently had it cut at a cute little Tribeca salon. My hairdresser, Shannon, was running a very effective T3 Tourmaline 1" Flat Iron (that straightens and curls) through my hair when all of a sudden I got a static attack. My hair was standing up in every direction despite her diligent attempts to flatten it down (how embarrassing). It wasn't until a few good sprays from a Static Guard aerosol that my strands were finally able to calm down.
"That always works," she laughed. I began to tell her how static always seems to haunt me throughout the winter months, giving me little zaps every time I take off a coat or a scarf. Luckily for me she was very knowledgeable about the subject and gave me some great tips.
Basically, the static comes from our hair getting dried out from the winter elements. Even just going in and out of stores, from the freezing outdoor air to overly heated rooms and back, can be very damaging. She told me I should be using a deep conditioning treatment once a week and to look for a sulfate-free shampoo. (Sodium and ammonium lauryl sulfates are cheap cleaning agents that are used in most shampoos to dissolve dirt and oil. These chemicals tend to dry out hair, strip it of its natural oils and shine, and create frizz.)
Here are some examples of sulfate-free products for you to try (hint: baby shampoos are usually sulfate-free so that they don't sting the eyes). But it couldn't hurt to keep a can of Static Guard around in case of a beauty emergency.
The treatment sounded alluring initially - until I discovered the main ingredient was nightingale droppings.
As much as your friends and family may love you, someone is guaranteed to strike out in the gift department every year. Crazy Santa-themed socks? Strangely colored lipstick? It's all been done before (and will be again), so we thought we'd let our gripes out in public.
In the comments below, list the worst present you received this year (add a link to a photo or info on where it can be purchased, if you know). We'll give you guys a week to compete and then pick a winner next Friday. To make up for your awful holiday, the winner will receive a box of goodies from the SheFinds beauty closet.
