deena & ozzy

Seeing that college starts in literally three weeks, thoughts of school supplies are starting to creep back into the back of my mind. I've bought tons of clothes (no more uniforms!), a few pairs of shoes and my schoolbag. 
I bought it about two weeks ago at Urban Outfitters. (I really need to tell you about that day.) This lovely Deena & Ozzy creation ($49) will serve as my first real schoolbag in five years. After going through high school with humongous purses and tortured shoulders, I needed two straps. Just the walk from the metro to the school is going to kill me.

XOXO,
Nina

Now that all the craziness that inevitably comes with the end of high school is finally out of the way, I can tell you about Mallzee.

In a world where we have multiple social networks literally at our fingertips, it's a wonder how there aren't dozens centered around online shopping. Think about it. While you sit at your laptop, credit card in hand, ready to make a purchase you might feel guilty about later, you're usually alone. There isn't anything social about online shopping. Friends don't get together to go online shopping.

With Mallzee, you can choose.The software determines which products you'll like based on 180 brands. You build your own mall and then people can buy from it. Every time someone buys from the mall you created, you earn a percentage. If that does not sound welcoming, I don't know what does.

Be sure to sign up!

XOXO,
Nina
