Long gone are the days of one-size-fits-all swimwear. How often do your top and bottom half actually squeeze into the same size bikini separates?

French Connection tends to the expensive side, featuring items like this stunning silk tunic for $158. Sure, their clothes are gorgeous, but at prices like that, why not book a cheap flight on AirFrance and buy a shirt in Paris? Don't worry- I've found an offer that will enhance your joie de vivre for less than $25 (although, if you really want to love life, I'd suggest a little pinot noir and brie).

This light-as-a-feather cami in 100% breathable cotton will keep you cool on summer days and oh-so-hot at night! Regularly $88, this breezy French Connection top has been marked down to just $23.98 at SmartBargains ! That's an unbeatable price on a top this chic! Also features satin trim, matching sash and spaghetti straps. Keep it classic in a subtle shade of Apricot, mellow out with cool Aqua, or turn up the heat in fiery Coral- there's a perfect shade for everyone! There are only 14 left, so hurry! This gorgeous camisole will sell out fast!

Drugstore has just launched Alli Weight Loss Aid starting at $49.25 for the starter pack! If you haven't heard of it, Alli was just featured on the NBC Nightly News and The Today Show and is spurring lots of media attention for its potent and safe weight loss effects. According to its description on Drugstore.com,

The Alli program starts with your commitment to adopting healthy eating habits. It combines the only over-the-counter, FDA-approved weight loss aid with an individually tailored support plan, to help achieve gradual and healthy weight loss. When you take Alli along with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet, you can lose about 50% more weight than dieting alone. For example, instead of losing 10 pounds with diet alone, you can lose 15 pounds with the Alli program.

Alli has endured some flack for certain unpleasant side effects (which you can read about here), but according to the manufacturer, they can easily be avoided by simply limiting your consumption of fatty foods.
Isn't this kind of obvious? I mean, if you're serious about losing weight, you wouldn't be chowing down on Funnyuns and garlic fries, expecting a weight loss pill to cancel out the side effects.

Alli is currently available at Drugstore.com for $62.99 or $49.25.

In a world of video iPods, glossy-screened Zunes and myriad portable multimedia gear, boxy, cube-shaped devices aren't always a shopper's first pick when the time comes to buy a new portable tv. If, however, you happen to come across a 5" tv that costs $3.75, don't even think about passing it up!

Office Depot is selling this tiny television at a cut-rate price. While you probably wouldn't toss this in your bag for the morning commute, a small, battery operated television would be perfect for an emergency kit, sporting event or even in the kitchen. Did I mention it's $3.75? At that price, you may as well buy one for each of your pets. Plus, the tv kind of resembles a 1950's B-movie robot. Or Rosie from The Jetsons.

According to the description,

It has a 5" black-and-white screen, a rotary telescoping antenna for clear reception, and a convenient carrying handle. You can also listen to weather reports and music, thanks to its built-in AM/FM radio. Includes an AC wall adapter and a car adapter, and it accepts 10 batteries (sold separately).
