Turn Your Lights Out: Earth Hour Tonight

Tonight, Saturday, March 28 from 8:00 - 9:00 PM in your local area, turn your lights off to celebrate Earth Hour. Last year, Earth Hour was launched in Sydney to inspire people to care about global climate change. In just one year it has turned into a global movement (even Google has turned their lights off today!). . At 8:00 PM tonight all around the world, people will be turning off their lights to show they care about our country and global warming. Find out more about Earth Hour here.

I hope all my fellow divas on a dollar will observe Earth Hour!

Relax with soothing eye pillow

Need to relax? This Soothing Eye Pillow from Red Envelope may be the perfect solution. Packed with lavender, organic flaxseed and chamomile petals, this should calm you down from a long, stressful day. And since it's only $15.99 (was $32), at least you won't be stressing about the price.

Though I'm not sure if this is one you can heat up in the microwave (I've seen those too), it can be put in the freezer if you need to "chill out."

Reader Diva on a Dollar Find

Over the weekend I ran into my friend, Raquel, who got a fabulous deal that she was excited to share with me. She recently went to a Chicagoland Macy's looking for a gown for a formal event. On a clearance rack she found this beautiful Jessica McClintock "Genvieve" gown. Apparently a bride had bought it for her bridesmaids' dress but changed her mind. As a result they had to reduce the unworn dress from $219 to $54! What a deal!

Z Gallerie is definitely one of my favorite furniture/home stores EVER. Right now they are having a great sale with items up to 70% off including these embroidered sonali pillows on sale for $51.89 a piece (originally $129.95 and also available in beige and chocolate brown).
