One Month Until Christmas

My family has decided this year not to exchange gifts. At this stage in our lives, whenever we want something we buy it. I would always buy things for myself when I did my Christmas shopping, so this year I will be able to buy more for myself.

My birthday is in December, so more reason to go shopping!!!!!!

Some of the stores that I shop at offer discounts or rewards during the month of your birthday if you are a member such as H2O+, Aveda, The Body Shop and Bitter Sweet.

Love Your Body Sale

I went to The Body Shop yesterday to purchase some soap. I did not know that they were having a sale.

Love Your Body Sale - Buy 2 bath and body products and get 1 free

Also, if you spent $24.50 or more, you could purchase a gift bag for $5.00. The gift bag included:

  • Divide & Multiply Mascara
  • Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream
  • Total Energy Exhilarating Body Wash
  • Hi-Shine Lip Treatment
An extra bonus was a coupon for $10 off your next purchase of $40 or more.

I love the idea that the bag can be used again as a clutch.

I discovered an online show called Model.Live on iTunes. The show follows three models (Cato, Madeline and Austria) who are trying to make it big in the fashion world. I downloaded the podcasts onto my iPod. It is a welcome alternative to America's Next Top Model, which has become difficult to watch in the last couple of years.

The show is available online:

The weekly episodes are available as a podcast on the iTunes Store as a free download.

Sample Sale

I just returned from vacation this evening and I am trying to get through all of my emails. I missed a lot of sales. I did not do much shopping on my trip.  I purchased three rings that probably cost less than $20 U.S. in total.
