I was quite surprised when I got home from work today to find an envelope from Coach. I thought that it was a birthday card. It was an invitation to visit a Coach Store and receive 25% off my total purchase during their holiday event days between December 4 through December 13, 2009.
This is the first time that I have received this invitation. I have no idea what I could possibly buy. I just received my Cole Haan Triangle Tote that I ordered from Neiman Marcus. It is gorgeous.
I was not planning on buying a new bag again for the year unless I find something at the One of a Kind Show on Sunday. I am not sure how I became a preferred customer. The only items that I remember purchasing this year from Coach were a wallet and a ring. I am open to suggestions.
Back in June I missed out on a sale for the Cole Haan Genevieve Woven Triangle Tote from a Shop it to Me alert that I received.
Today I received an email from someone who was also looking for the bag and happened to find my blog. She told me about a sale at Neiman Marcus for the bag. Neiman Marcus is having a Last Call Clearance sale on various items. You also save an extra 25% off of the item.
I am happy to say that they do deliver to Canada. I have ordered the bag and can't wait for it to arrive. The original bag I loved was in orange. The only colour left is saddle brown.
Original price: $495. 00 Now: $222.00 Extra 25% off
I received the Clorox Green Works Starter Kit through the Matchstick program. The Green Works Starter Kit included:
1 x Green Works natural laundry detergent
1 x Green Works natural all-purpose cleaner
1 x Green Works reusable tote
1 x Green Works delicates bag
30 x Green Works natural laundry detergent samples
30 x Full Value Coupons for Green Works
I have been faithful to one brand of laundry detergent for many years. However, this has changed since I received the Green Works starter kit. I was familiar with the Green Works natural all-purpose cleaner, but I had never purchased it before. It was not aware that the company made a laundry detergent.
My first thought when I placed a capful of the laundry detergent into the washing machine was "wow". The smell was incredible. I started throwing clothing into the machine. I may have mixed colours that should not have been washed together. I wasn't sure if I even needed fabric softener. I was able to smell the laundry detergent throughout the house. I can't wait to do another load of laundry.
Secondly, I used the all-purpose cleaner in the bathroom. What I love about the cleaner is that I was not overwhelmed by fumes. Usually I want to burn my clothes after doing housework.
I will definitely purchase these products again. I have given some samples away. I want to keep them for myself, but I will share them with family, friends and co-workers.
Yesterday I purchased these boots at Winners. They are Warmbat Australia Kangaroo Classic Boots. They cost $49.99. Great price. I have not worn them yet, but they feel very comfortable.
I purchased this case today at Sephora from the Harajuku Lovers Snow Bunnies Bag collection - $26.00 (Canadian)
I have been waiting one month for this day. Today was supposed to be the day that I purchased an iPhone. I went to the Telus store after work. I was told that because I was in the middle of my 3 year contract that I could not get the phone under my current contract, but would have to purchase it at full price.
iPhone 3GS 32GB - $299.00 3 year contract $799.00 no contract
I was told that I would have to contact customer service to see if I qualified for a credit. Unfortunately, I am only eligiblie for a $150 credit at this time. I was told to call back in a couple of months to see if I was eligible for a further credit.
Me...after finding out that I was not getting the iPhone today.
I haven't watched Oprah in a long time, but I found today's episode interesting. It was a shoe, handbag and accessory intervention.
I don't need a handbag or accessory intervention. Shoes on the other hand are a problem for me. While watching the show I thought about the pair of shoes I wear several times a week. I am too embarrassed to take a picture. My look is perfect until you look at my feet.
They put several of the women in heels. That is not happening in my world. A kitten heel is as high as I will go. Too much pain and not able to fit my orthotics.
What shoe every woman needs:
every shoe (sleek sneaker)
all-weather boot for winter
I guess I need to do some shopping. Luckily I already have a tall boot that I purchased in September. I forgot that I still need to get a all-weather winter boot before it starts to snow.
The boot of the season: Over the knee boot. Not for me. They don't make boots with that much fabric.
These are the handbag violations they found on everyday women on the street:
patterns for everyday use
On most days I carry two bags to work. One is my purse and the other holds my gym clothes. They cannot fit into one bag. I travel on the bus and subway. The alternative they had for the backpack was a messenger bag. I am still searching for a great backpack and messenger bag. I should think about getting rid of my Tokidoki LeSportsac bags.
