If there ever were a moment that treating ourselves felt so, so right, it's now. We're fresh off of a historic US presidential win and aside from the stress of a global pandemic, things feel a lot more hopeful than in a long time. Plus, with Singles' Day right around the corner — that's right, the biggest worldwide shopping event of the year that you've never heard of — there are plenty of A+ deals ripe for your shopping enjoyment.
A quick history lesson: Having originated in China, Singles Day is an unabashed celebration of the #singlelife, and falls on November 11 each year. (The date, 11/11, represents four single 1's — go ahead, have a chuckle.) Since its inception, it's ballooned into a global commerce bonanza, where steep discounts on all things self-care — beauty, sex toys, fashion, and more — can be found just about everywhere. If you're not about the Black Friday and Cyber Monday craze, we suggest you get your deal-hunting done early and shop the expertly-curated discount codes here. (There's not a bad one in the bunch!)
