Must-Have Shopping App: Luvocracy


Currently loving: Luvocracy, available in the Apple App Store

There are sooo many shopping apps out these days, but one of them stands out above the rest for ease-of-use and the just-plain-fun factor: It's called Luvocracy for iOS 7 and you can download the mobile app for free in the App Store.

Why do I luv it? Quite simply, Luvocracy brings together cool products (from all over the web) and savvy shoppers so you can discover, shop, buy and share all in one place.

I think of it as "Pinterest for buying stuff." You follow people whose style you trust, discovering new products and stores in the process. For example, I just discovered Forever 21 sells a great dupe for Deborah Lippmann "Candy Shop" nail polish. And I found the perfect wedding anniversary gift for my husband (Japanese whisky - he's going to luv it!)


Luvocracy - addicting shopping app!!

Once you download Luvocracy and get started, you'll see it's totally addicting and easy to use. The Luvocracy app is being featured as one of the Best New Apps in the App Store right now.

Download the app today and check out all the products I love at Luvocracy.com/thebudgetbabe.

If you like what you see, don't forget to rate it and tell others how much you luv this app!

Off the Rack: September Fashions at Target


Fall fashion love at Target

Earlier I shared some photos of the shoes at Target, now here's a look at some of the fashions. Nothing really screamed "buy me" but there were a few nice pieces worth noting. Let's start with the polka dot blazer by Merona (above, $34.99) - who can resist polka dots? Speaking of irresistible, the juniors section had a few trendy animal motif sweaters that made me smile (but I think I'm too old to actually wear a bunny sweater). Moving on - Mossimo has some of the most fashion forward pieces, included a black moto vest and plaid short sleeve sweater. Merona delivers great staples, like a pencil skirt in leopard print or houndstooth. And if you're looking for a basic denim jacket, cargo jacket or chambray shirt, you'll find all of them at Target for under $35 each.

Are the selections at Target a bit boring right now or is it just my store?
