Jessica Shops: Do some shopping while you socialize

Social shopping

Copious.com: So many of us are on Facebook, why not make use of that time and shop while we socialize? Currently in beta version, Copious.com is sure to be a hit in merging Facebook with shopping. It allows people to buy and sell items with ease. Categories available include new and “pre-loved” handbags, electronics, home items and sporting goods. Great deals I found include a MiGi Sweet Sunshine crib set for $162 (above; retail $179), a Michael Kors Heidi Hobo Bag for $225 (retail $498) and a Ddrum D2 beginner five-piece drum set for $165 (retail $399). It’s also a great little place to find unique gifts like a handmade coffee sleeve ($15) or vintage Dior earrings ($35). Whether you’re in the market to buy or sell, double up on your online time and save (or make) some cash, too.

Sally Beauty: Keep those fingernails and toenails looking good the rest of summer. Visit Sally Beauty’s online store and grab a deal on the popular FingerPaints nail polish. Use code 555122 and get one free polish with the purchase of two (valid until Sunday).

Raw Bronzing Studio: Be good to your skin this summer and take advantage of a special at Raw Bronzing Studio during August.
