It’s that time of the year again! Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in style this weekend at one of my favorite and beloved shoe boutiques, Sassanova and score 25 percent off on all full-priced items now through May 5th. Andele andele!

You spend some, you donate some this weekend at all Urban Chic locations. Get 20 percent off one item when you donate a gently-used formal dress for UC’s Prom Dress Drive, benefiting Miss Believe.

By the time you read this, I’ll be at South Moon Under, purchasing a new Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag on sale. Enjoy 20 percent off all Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags, cosmetic cases and tech accessories now through May 17th.

Wine Riot is back in DC for a “second glass.” Vino experts and newbies will love this wine tasting event as guests can sample over 250 wines from around the world. [Side note nail: in case you’re wondering why this has anything to do with beauty, wine has some great anti-aging benefits.] Saturday May 5th from 1-5pm or 7-11pm, DAR Constitution Hall; tickets are available here.
