Winter certainly has its charms, but it really does a number on my beauty routine. As much as I appreciate picturesque snowfalls and any excuse to expand my collection of snappy wool coats, my cracked lizard skin, chapped lips and dry hair aren't fun to deal with day in and day out.
I haven't always been short. When I was in fifth grade I was one of the tallest kids in my class. Not just one of the tallest girls, one of the tallest out of everyone. When we were teenagers, my little brother used to pound on his chest and ask, "Who am I? I am Courtney in fifth grade!" I was really small when I was a tot, then grew a lot in middle school, then I just stopped.
Winter is almost here, but we're choosing to stay positive about the upcoming weather. After all, there are several things we enjoy about this season: drinking new varieties of flavored coffee, watching the leaves change, and cozying up with an electric blanket, to name a few. At the top of MY list is picking out a cute new winter jacket.

The chilly weather has me browsing for over-sized sweaters, cozy socks, boots, and jackets on a regular basis. The sales are plentiful, and if I had a dollar for every great outrageous steal I found on an item for my fall wardrobe...I still wouldn't have enough money to buy them all.
I love finding steals on high-quality, fashion-forward items that I'd never be able to afford at full price, and with the help of the rest of the Brad's Deals team, I've gotten pretty good at it. But plenty of designers carry price tags that are still out of our reach, no matter how many coupons I stack over a holiday weekend sale. Luckily for frugal fashionistas like me, a handful of designer collections have found their way into our favorite department stores, and they're totally affordable. Take a look at some of our favorites, along with their pricey counterparts.
Fashion-conscious kids and budget-conscious parents often find themselves at odds when it comes to shopping for a back-to-school wardrobe, and parents know all too well that finding neutral territory on the topic is an eye-roll contest waiting to happen when what you wear on your first day back is so incredibly, crucially important!
There are lots of things to love about the summer months, but the extra heat, humidity and sunshine can really wreck havoc on your beauty routine.
It's wedding season, and as frequent readers of the Brad's Deals Blog will know, I have several weddings to attend in 2015, and maybe you do too! Whether you're the bride, a bridesmaid, the mother of the bride or just an average guest, buying the perfect dress for every wedding can get expensive. So why buy a dress you'll only wear once when you can rent it and send it back when you're done?
Prom season has arrived, and as we've mentioned before, if you're not careful, this night to remember can get more than a little bit pricey. With the average American family spending upwards of $978 on prom in 2014, you might be looking for ways to cut corners this year without sacrificing style. Here are our DIY suggestions.
