I spend most of my day on the computer, writing blog posts for La Dolce Vita, executing my tasks as editor of High Gloss Magazine and writing some freelance articles on the side. In between all of that and engaging in my social media addictions (Twitter, Facebook and most recently, Pinterest), I am sometimes able to sneak in a little shopping. I have recently come across some stylish, noteworthy bargains that I can’t help but share with everyone. I love a great deal!

Scarves serve so many purposes. You can use them as headwraps, sarongs, scarves (of course!). One of my favorite ways to use scarves happens to be fashioning throw pillow covers from them. Since these are pretty inexpensive, I would suggest going with a sturdier linen, cotton or velvet in a coordinating solid color for the back of the pillow and using one of these pretty ethnic prints for the front. They’re chic and cheap!

Do any of these bargains catch your eye?
