    Study hall never looked so chic!

    MULBERRY MEETS APPLE... As if Apple (in our eyes) could get any cooler? Chic style and inflated price tags just go naturally together at Camp Apple so when we heard Mulberry signed on to do a line of laptop and accessory carriers, it just seemed natural. The totes will be based on the classic Mulberry shapes altered to fit and hug your Macbook just right. Mulberry iPhone case? Yes, please! Unfortunately, here in the US (it's a UK project) we won't be able to get our hands on them from Mulberry.com until December 1, but on the upside, it's just in time for the holiday season!

    DO IT FOR THE KIDS... Are you an early bird holiday shopper? If so, seize the opportunity to be generous and send a $50 (or more) donation to the annual Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Then, be merry when you receive a 20 percent off shopping pass for over 70 retailers in West Hartford Center, valid from now until November 1. So when you're picking up lunch dates at Max Burger and Cuvee,  baubles at Lux Bond & Green, or treats for your favorite pooch at Reigning Cats and Dogs, remember who told you about the discount, and get a little something for us too. Buy your pass today online.

    RAVING REVIEWS... Diesel denim rarely has a hard time standing out in a sea of blue, but now they're brighter than ever with actual glow-in-the-dark printed jeans, undies, tee's, and sneaks for their new Flash for Fun collection, just in time for rave season. The details range from dragons to stitching, but don't worry, they can be your embarrassing guilty pleasure, as they'll only appear under black lights. Order online with tank tops starting at $30 and denim for $120.

    WE IN THE VIP... This weekend Clinton Crossing is hosting a VIP weekend for all their VIP's. Not on the list? No worries, it's free and easy and instant to sign-up for online. Once you're a member, bask in discount glory, with an extra 20 percent off at Ralph Lauren, 15 percent at Kate Spade and 30 percent at Calvin Klein, just to name a few. Additionally, look forward to free gifts and raffles all weekend long.

    MAKE IT MISSONI... Missing your Missoni? No need! Snag from the newly arrived selection of bold plaid woven blankets from Missoni Home for super chic snuggling. The Missoni Home collection doesn't stop there either -- bedding and towels in their signature wave weave can make for a dizzying inclusion in your pad. We, however, will just take the blanket, available at Saks Fifth Avenue in Stamford or online for $320.
