Reminder: Google Reader Retiring Tomorrow (7.1.13) - Choose Another 'Following' Option Now

Just a reminder that Google is retiring their Reader as of tomorrow, July 1, 2013. This means that if you follow Fabulous Florida Mommy via Google Reader, you will need to switch to a different platform (if you have not already) to continue receiving blog updates.

From the information I've read, it appears that if you have a Blogger account, you can still continue to follow via Google Friend Connect, BUT if you don't have a Blogger account and you are currently using Google Reader, there are several other options that you can use to continue following me... 


*Bloglovin   

*Feedly - I just switched over to this on Thursday, and so far really like it. It's easy to switch all of your feeds over too...just sign into your Google account via Feedly, and your Google blog feed will be switched over for you. They don't have a social media button yet, but I will be sure to put it on the sidebar as soon as they do.

*Email: Just type your email address in the 'Follow by Email...' box in the right sidebar and click Subscribe.


Just a quick note to those of you who do follow via Google Friend Connect and have a Blogger account. I also follow a lot of blogs this way, but since there are a lot of varying opinions on whether or not it will still work tomorrow, (or also shut down like Google Reader), I have chosen to also follow those blogs using alternative options...just to be on the safe side. Something you might consider doing, as well. :) 

On another note: in shopping-related news... 


***Today is the last day to save an Extra 30% Off Promo-Priced and Sale items at J.Crew with code SUMMER30 at checkout. There were a lot of markdowns this week, and they have also done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items...new items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price. Click HERE for the updated list of Promo-Priced Items & Summer Sale Markdowns.

Have a lovely day! :)

J.Crew: New Promo-Priced Items & Markdowns Plus Last Day to Save an Extra 30% Off - SUMMER30!!!

Just a reminder that today is the last day to save an Extra 30% Off Promo-Priced and Sale items with code SUMMER30 at checkout. There were new markdowns this week, and they have also done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items, too...new items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Promo-priced items, they are select Regular-price pieces that J.Crew marks down to a 'Promotional Price' for a short amount of time. These items are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.

If an item is on promo or sale online, but not in the store, ask the sales associate if they will match the online price, and apply any extra % off that may be happening at that time. You can also ask to place a 'Blue Martini' (formerly Red Phone) order for an online promo-priced or sale item and have any extra % off taking place in the store applied to it, as well.

The promo-prices are usually in effect for a week or two (sometimes longer), then they either go back up to full-price or move on into Summer Sale. I have noted the majority of the Women's Promo-priced items currently available on the J.Crew website, as well as the items that have been marked down.

New Promo-Priced Items:
 


*Stripe necklace shell
*Tartine satchel - Modern Red on promo
*Collection women's Ludlow jacket in Italian wool - Navy on promo 
*Collection women's Ludlow trouser in Italian wool - Navy on promo

New Markdowns:


*Collection cashmere Tippi sweater in monarch - $189.99 

*Collection featherweight cashmere cardigan in two-way stripe - $159.99
*Boy shirt in sea horse - $39.99 (3rd markdown)
