Since Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday is over, and life can now get back to being normal (at least for the workweek) I can get back to finding cool stuff for you.  With that being said, lets check out an online store called Esty.  It's a pretty cool site where anyone can be their own boss.  Here is a list of a few items you can buy and sell on the site: Art, Clothing, Furniture, Books, Paper Goods, Vintage Items and much, much more.  I came across this cool neck warmer that is handmade and I want one sooooo bad.  I love the little details such as the buttons and different texture of ribs.  The designer will custom make one for you if you don't like the colors or styles she has available.  Check out her store for scarfs and hats too.   Her neck warmers are ideal for those days you don't want to fidget with tying your scarf to perfection but you still want to look perfect.  Enjoy.

So if you're like me, you are probably going to be out on Thanksgiving night in the stores shopping away.  I just joined the fan club of Black Friday last year.  I must say it was FUN!  Last year it was just me and my Hubby.  This year we have a crew of 8-10.  I can't wait.  Make it an event.  Shop, go out to eat, take photos of your adventures, just have fun.  One must be careful during this time of year, don't want to have any crazy incidents that we all see on the news year after year.  If your new to black Friday check this site out.  It has all the ads for various stores and it list their deals.  Its an one stop go to site.  Start planning now.  Enjoy.

This is new.  I thought I would share with you different deals that you might be interested in.  Now through November 23rd is having a 80% off sale.  What this means is you can buy a e-certificate to a restaurant for $10 and get $25 worth of food.  Once you apply the promo code at checkout for 80% off your e-certificate will be $2.  Now that is a sweet deal.  Make sure you read the details for each restaurant because many of them have different terms & policies for redeeming e-certificate.  You can buy gift cards to restaurants in different cities as well.  I have used these e-certificates and they are great, especially the larger amounts.  When entertaining a large group this would be great to use or even if you just order lunch for yourself.  Don't miss out on this great deal.  The code is SHOP.  Enjoy.

*e-certificate:  This is like a gift card but you print it out.  So there isn't an actual card just a printed piece of paper.


I did a little more research and found another online website that sales shoes for just $39.95 called Shoe Dazzle.  The site works pretty much the same way as Just Fab.  However I found that I like their selection of shoes more than I like Just Fab.  If you're a new member and sign up you will receive 20% off your first purchase.  The deal isn't as good as Just Fab, but the shoe selection is really good.  The funny thing is Kim Kardashian represents this site and Kimora Lee Simmons represents the Just Fab. I found these styles below that I love and wouldn't mind buying now.  Well you decide which site is best for you. Enjoy.


I have been seeing TV commercials for an online store called Just Fab. I've checked out the website and seen a lot of cool shoes and bags I wouldn't mind buying. Just Fab is a online store where you can buy shoes/handbags/jewelry at $39.95. That is a great deal especially if you don't have time to shop. Just make sure to read the fine print. They will charge your credit card $39.95 every 6th day of the month if you do not go online and select the skip this month button. Signing up is free and you can cancel at any time. Standard shipping (7-10 business days) is free. If you sign up today you will get 50% off your first purchase on one item. Sorry doesn't apply to the total bill. I think I am going to order my first pair of booties in a few moments. Tell me what do you think of them. Enjoy.

If you know me personally you know I am a big Beyonce Fan. What I really love about her is she seems so real (like one of your girlfriends) & she is private (not blasting her business to the media). Yes she could be a Diva and be rude to people/fans but she hasn't been. I finally found a photo of her in her wedding dress. I have read what some people are saying about the dress, "Typical wedding dress", and "Boring." I understand that not everyone is a fan, and that is ok. But that is the dress she chose and clearly she looks happy wearing it. You can't please everyone. I think she looked great. Love the fresh face, not too many people can pull that off. True beauty radiates from the inside out. Make sure you're consistently working on this for yourself. She also looked gorgeous wearing the the wedding dress from her music video "Best Thing I Never Had." What do you think? Which dress do you think she looks best in? Enjoy

I am working on my Christmas card etiquette this year. With that being said I will send out my holiday cards right after Thanksgiving and not the day after Christmas. LOL! I am so bad when it comes to sending out my holiday cards. I always have good intent, but never follow through. You know the drill.
1. You buy the Christmas cards
2. You get the list of addresses.
3. You write in each cards meaningful thoughts to your loved ones.
4. You put the cards in the envelopes and address them.
5. You buy the stamps & mail them out.
Well as you can see step 5 is where I go wrong. But this year will be different because Shutterfly is having a 40% off sale on holiday cards. Get started now b/c I don't know when this sale ends. the sale ends today (Nov. 16th).  The promo code is CARD40. You can add one photo of yourself/family or add 4+ photos.  You can custom tailor your holiday card to your liking.  Enjoy.
P.S. Go out and buy your stamps now : )

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
This scripture has got me through many things, I hope it will do the same for you. Enjoy.


After speaking with a few friends about food I decided that for tonight's dinner I will make a glamorous tuna melt.  Sorry to those who don't like tuna, I'll do something else soon.  After searching for the perfect recipe I've narrowed it down to two (actual link is listed below).  Hopefully you will like them.  I can't wait till dinner.  Enjoy.

Ok so I know I've been away for a while, sorry about that. But I'm back and I have a treat for you. I recently bought Revlon's crazy shine nail buffer. This item is amazing! My nails looked like I polished them to perfection with a high quality clear coat. if you don't have time to paint your nails use this nail buffer.  I loved this beauty item so much I did a few ladies nails within hours of using it myself (they ran to the store shortly after to get one for themselves). This is a must for all who want their nails to look clean & well manicured in less than 2 minutes. The best cost less than $3. Love it. Plus if you have the Revlon coupon you can get an additional $1 off the sales price. Enjoy.

Remember the times when women wore aprons when cooking?  Well I don't, I remember seeing women wear them on T.V. when I would watch Nick at Nite.  I found this website called Flirty Aprons that sells the cutest aprons.  These isn't your grandmothers hand me downs.  There are so many prints/color combinations that any kitchen fashionista can find one to suit the mood.  Why not look gorgeous while cooking.  Flirty Aprons teamed up with Groupon, spend $15 for $30 worth of merchandise.  Hurry the sale is only for 2 days.  Enjoy.


So I came across this article on one of my fav sites, styleite.  The issue at hand is a necklace that Forever 21 is selling of a lil Asian girl, named Oriental Girl Necklace.  The necklace is very cute, so cute that I bought one a year ago, so it's not new.  My issue is the issue that is being made over it.  Is it racist?  Stereotypical?  Out of bad taste?  I guess it depends on each individual.  If the store sold a lil Black girl with an afro I would have purchased that one in addition to my previous purchase.  I do agree that the name of the necklace should be changed.  I would be upset if they named the lil Black girl necklace a negative stereotype.  I've had my issues with Forever 21 but I highly doubt they would have negative intentions on making and selling a product that would target a persons ethnicity.  But after all this is just my opinion.  What are your opinions on this article?  Enjoy.
