FREE LG G Pad!

Today, I bring to your attention a major geek chic announcement.  Many of you may or may not know that my husband is an account manager for Verizon Cellular Sales.  He came home to tell me about a pretty great deal on the LG G Pad 8.3.  How great??  Can you say, “FREE”?!  If you haven’t heard of the LG G Pad, then keep reading.

The paper clip in this photo is GIANT, btw. Haha! Seriously, the tablet is 8 x 3 inches. 🙂

I’d asked for a tablet because it’s sometimes cumbersome to travel with my laptop – especially on short trips.  My colleagues also have tablets that they take with them from meeting to meeting at work, so that’s also inspired me to try and get one for myself.  So, I’m going to give this one a try and so far I love it!  What’s even better is that there is quite the incentive for you to buy one too!

My hubby hubs can get you this tablet, free of cost, after rebate!  All you pay for is the service each month.

Details: Day Designer Planner, Target notepad, Nate Berkus oversized paper clip, Nate Berkus Bulldog Tape Dispenser, 8 x 3″ LG G Pad, Little Love Press Coffee Mug

As you can see, it’s small enough to carry with you everywhere you go and yet large enough to work off of.  It’s the perfect size for reading books with the Kindle app, watching movies, playing games, and other activities to entertain the little ones.  It fits perfectly in your purse, and it doesn’t even have to be a tote bag.  As you can see below, it fits in my Tory Burch satchel.

It has a front and rear facing camera, a quad core processor, and from the picture above you can see the colors on the screen are amazing.  With Father’s Day just around the corner, one of these would make the perfect gift.  You can get text messages on this tablet while making sure he (or you!) stays up to date with the coolest technology, haha.

So, how do you get yours FREE?!  Contact my hubby, Mike!  Out of pocket cost is $140+tax but then you get a $140 rebate back in about 10-12 business days.  No other Verizon store or online company is offering these free at the moment, so this is a very unique offer I get to share with my readers.  Yay for us!  Online and most Verizon stores are offering this tablet for $229 with a $100 rebate.  The monthly cost for most Verizon plans is just $10 a month to have internet access on it everywhere you go.  You can also connect to WiFi when available to save your data.

For more information, contact Mike at 760-447-7788 or mike.frymark@cellularsales.com.  LG G Pads can be shipped anywhere in the US, so you do not have to be local to purchase from him.  They all come with a 14 day worry-free guarantee to make sure you are completely happy with your purchase.  If you don’t have Verizon you can still get the tablet for FREE and the Verizon plan would be $30 a month for 2GB of data.  My husband can also help switch you, your family, and even your business to Verizon and give you the best deal possible on equipment.  Verizon is also now offering a $100 bill credit per line you bring from another carrier that gets a smart phone.  So get on it!  This is not a scam, btw.  I fully endorse this product, and my hubby. 🙂

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!

The Zara Sale for the Professional Woman

Well, the sales keep on comin’!  If I were told that for the rest of my life I could only shop one store with an unlimited budget, it would likely be Zara.  For the professional woman, this is the relatively affordable mecca of work-appropriate clothing that is not only chic, but also great quality.  I LOVE ZARA.  LOVE.

So when my sister called me earlier today to alert me to the fact that some major sales were going down, I immediately took to the ‘internets’ as some would say, to scour the inventory.  She was not lying.  The selection and prices are amazing.  AH-MAZE-ING.

Here are a few of my faves:

Fitted Blazer with Pleated Sleeves, $39.99.  I am ALL about an amazing shoulder on a jacket.  I love this color of this one, but it also comes in black for those of you who are averse to color. :D

Checked Shift Dress, $49.99.  Okay, so this dress isn't super cheap, but it's half off and just perfect in terms of tailoring!  The color combo is gorgeous, and well let's face it, it's just simply a great lookin' dress.  Not gonna lie, I bought it.  You should buy it too and be dress twinsies. ;)

Judge me all you want, but I think these trousers are über chic!  Paired with a sweater, a silk top and a blazer, you've got a comfy, chic outfit for most office environments.  Get them now and wear them until it gets to warm to sport them!

Skirt with side zip, $22.99.  My bestie and I loved this skirt!  A little bit of sexy without crossing the line into trashy, haha.  Pair it with a button down or even a plain white t-shirt and call it day.

High Heel Leather Boot, $79.99.  In case you didn't already know, now is the time to buy boots!  These in particular are $100 off.  The heel is a good height, and chunky, so they are bound to be relatively comfy to wear.

Pleated Dress with Flared Skirt, $49.99.  If you're tall and slim, this is the dress for you.  I'm obsessed with the color, but for a short curvy woman, this is not the beesneez.  So, I pass it along to you who can rock it!

Faux Leather Obi Belt, $12.99.  In my opinion, everyone needs a great statement belt.  This one is a good neutral one to have, and I love that the size is adjustable, without having those horrid holes telling the wold whether you've gained or lost weight recently.  Ugh!

Faux Fur Jacket, $25.99.  If you've been looking for a faux fur jacket, look no further!  I love the color of this one AND the price is literally unbeatable.  Even by Forever 21's standards!  BUY.BUY.BUY!!

Mini City Bag, $25.99.  I'm a sucker for a great statement bag.  Add this to an all black outfit, and all white outfit, or even to the checked/plaid dress above, and you have a fantastic outfit.  My laptop would likely not fit in this bag (8 x 9 x 3"), but for the price, I say it's worth buying.
