Lei Chic Watch
Royal Rewind
She wore a maple leaf hat! She rewore her engagement dress! They donned sweatshirts! Relive the royal couple's 11-day jaunt through the U.S. and Canada in two minutes flat. Just make sure to turn down the volume so your boss doesn't hear about Kate's costume changes.
Details: Can't get enough? Check out Canadian CTV's special site which includes day-by-day breakdown, daily photo galleries, and videos.

Plead a Fifth
20 percent off all clearance swimsuits on with code SPLASH20. There is still a good selection of suits with some pricing as low as $17. Just keep in mind, shipping and handling to Hawaii will be at least $11.
When: Expires today.
