Schon Thing

In a tough economy, finding ways to look prosperous and impressive are doubly important. To get a job or to keep a job you – or someone you love – may need some help looking like the right person to keep the company afloat. In a case like that, the importance of a really great tie cannot be overstated.

Mila Schon Ties That’s where the Raffaello Network comes in with the huge sale they’re having on designer ties.

This pure silk tie by Mila Schon is a surefire winner. Classic, attractive, the man who wears this will look self-assured and in control. What’s more, he’ll be fiscally responsible. After all, the regular price may be $129.00, but he’s only going to pay $85.00 for it.

A well-turned-out man who knows how to save a buck? Honey, I’ve always got a job for a man like that!

Grapes of Wrap

Is there a man in your life who loves grapes? Wine? Really great ties? Are you that man?

Either way, you should go to the Raffaello Network right now and take a look at this really great grape tie by Gianni Versace:

Versace Grape Tie Made of 100% top quality premium silk, it’s a classic midnight blue with bunches of violet grapes with emerald green leaves on it. From the boardroom to the dining room, it will look both dignified and easy going.

And for those concerned with such matters, it comes with an authenticity card with a high-security Versace hologram. Me? I prefer to concern myself not with its authenticity, but with it’s awesome. Still, it’s certainly better than accidentally supporting illegal knock-off vendors.

One thing I know we can all agree on is that Raffaello Network has it at a great price. Normally they carry this tie for $99.00, but right now it can be yours (or you guy’s) for a mere $69.00!

You certainly wouldn’t have to ply me with the fruit of the vine to get me to agree to that price.

Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Black Friday Edition

Ah, Black Friday. The day that shopper and retailer both anticipate and dread in equal measures. The day when the Christmas shopping season officially starts bringing full coffers to businesses and massive congestion to mall parking lots.

The best thing about Black Friday is, of course, all the great deals offered up to the consumer. The worst thing about it is all the crowding, jostling, and general lack of holiday cheer among the throngs of customers who want the deals but hate the lines.

So what does the savvy shopper do? She shops online, of course!

No getting elbowed in the ribs while standing in line, no strange kids running amok, no canned Christmas music unless you want it, no undertrained and overwhelmed holiday hire cashiers to shortchange you or direct you to the opposite area of the store from the item you want…online shopping is the perfect cure for Mall Malaise. And in the interest of making the experience both pleasant and reasonably priced, I’ve gone out and hunted down some superfantastic holiday deals that may inspire you to be the best Secret (or not-so-secret) Santa ever.

Cocoanut Paradise Bath Set The Coconut Paradise Bath and Body set
is the perfect gift for the woman (and we all know her) who needs to slow down and pamper herself once in a while. There’s coconut milk bath gel, moisturizing body lotion, bath salts, an exfoliating pumice stone, and a body puff. All of it comes in an adorably whimsical wire clawfoot bathtub. Even the original price of $39.99 would have made it a find under fifty, but it’s now 38% off at Amazon
for a cool $24.99. At that price, you could get several for those last-minute gifts you didn’t expect to need.
