THE MUST HAVE ULTRA WIDE WAISBAND HUE LEGGINGS WENT ON SALE ON SATURDAY.
If you’re like anything like me (and I know that MANY of you are), your credit card practically just flew out of your wallet at the mere mention of this news.
(Thank you Kimberly and Wendy for giving me the heads up!)
They used to be $38, but now they are $27.
$27! FOR A MUST HAVE!
Click HERE and BUY a pair (or 2 or 3) before they are all gone!!!
And I have to say, I’m so THRILLED that you ladies are THRILLED with your new leggings. Each and every e-mail I get singing their praises makes me smile!
I’ll tell you this, after I went shopping for tunics for leggings on Friday (post to show you all of my finds on Friday), I went ahead and bought a 2nd pair….I went with grey.
You guys aren’t going to believe how many awesome long tops, cardigan, and tunics I found.
And since I know I’m going to want to live in them, I thought I better have a couple pairs of leggings.
Click HERE if you want to read all about the leggings in the post
where I named them a MUST HAVE.
And seriously, get ready for Friday’s post.
It’s a good one girls!
Also, I cannot even tell you the number of e-mails I’ve received about Hanky Panky underwear.
You ladies are SERIOUSLY passionate about your Hanky Pankies!
I ordered 1 pair last week just to try them out for myself (and they are supposed to arrive later today), but when I was ordering a 2nd pair of leggings, I went ahead and ordered 2 more pair of the underwear based upon all of you insisting that they will be the best underwear I’ve ever worn.
I gotta say, it seems that my bossiness is rubbing off on you ladies, but I can’t wait to try them out!
Here is just one of the e-mails I received about them…from The Blue Eyed Bride!
…ditch all your other underwear, and
buy enough hanky pankies so that you never have to wear
anything else again. i got them as a stocking stuffer when i
was a sophomore in college and they’ve been the only
thing i’ve ever worn ever since 😉 i love them!!
Click HERE for the Hanky Panky on sale.
And Erin’s right…they would make a great stocking stuffer for a sister or grown daughter!
Most colors have already sold out, but I got 2 pairs of the “fantasy serpent”.
ooh la la
Okay…time to transition to the real reason for the post today….
Christmas is 45 Days Away…
But don’t worry, there’s no need to panic! I’ve got your back!
Here’s a quick list of all the ways I’m going to help you this year!
I don’t know how it happened, but all of a sudden it’s GAME TIME.
Thanksgiving is late this year which means we can’t wait until after Thanksgiving to start planning, so it’s time to start. Like NOW.
I’m here to help!
Actually….there are going to be LOTS of FABULOUS (and I do mean FABULOUS) giveaways between now and Christmas. So start getting excited for those…details to come….
If you buy this book, you will create wonderful memories and extend the magic of Christmas.
Did you hear that people?
YOU WILL EXTEND THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS.
The Elf on The Shelf people really should put me in charge of their marketing campaign.
I mean, just look at my graphic.
You and your little ones will have so much fun with this and you will be creating memories that will last a lifetime. They are only little once, and this is a great way to take advantage of these precious years. We started when Carter was 3, and he still talks about things that our elf “Tootie” did 2 years ago! He can’t wait till he comes back to visit this year, and at our house, Tootie always shows up the day after Thanksgiving (which is why you need to order the book now!)!
And let’s be honest, if you have a 2,3,4,5,6,7,8, or 9 year old,
you HAVE to be doing Elf On The Shelf.
ALL of the kids have an elf, and if your kid doesn’t, well then that’s just sad.
And if you want to see how the elf rolls into town at my friend Andrea’s house, and I’m telling you right now, you totally do! Click HERE.
You will be super impressed at her North Pole Breakfast!
Andrea’s kids are so lucky to have her as a mama!
So, order it now and get ready to make precious memories with your precious kid(s)!
Click HERE for the book.
Let me give you one more way to extend the magic that I read about on Pinterest awhile ago. Look around your house for Christmas books. Wrap up each Christmas book and put it under your tree. Every night at bedtime the child gets to unwrap a book and that’s the book you read that night!
If you need a few more Christmas books for your collection, click HERE and you can throw them in your cart with your Elf on the Shelf book.
I’m all about one stop shopping.
Starting on December 1st, I’m partnering up with Shay for our 12 Days of Christmas series that we thought up several months ago.
And I will tell you one thing for sure,
it is going to be FANTASTIC.
Lots of gift ideas, lots of recipes, lots of traditions, lots of clothes…..
AND HERE’S THE BEST PART,
LOTS of GIVEAWAYS.
LOTS of TOTALLY FABULOUS GIVEAWAYS.
It’s going to be so much fun!
One of the biggest ways that I hope I’m helping you this year is with my Santa Alerts!
All gifts that appear as a Santa Alert will be between $20-$100 and guaranteed to please!
I am going to of course continue to throw up a Santa Alert on every post I do between now and Christmas. I had only planned on doing 1 per week, but I’m finding so many great things, that I’ve decided to do one for each of my posts! Heck, some posts might even have more than 1 (like today)! I’m telling you, Pinterest Told Me To is going to make Christmas sooo easy for you this year!
Click HERE to see all of my Santa Alerts so far!
They are mainly carried online, but if you are in the area,
they are exclusive to the the Northpark store.
My sister texted me about these last week, but when I looked at them online, I wasn’t sure I liked them. She said I needed to make time to see them in person, so I headed to Northpark last Friday. Well, she was right, in person they are FABULOUS.
Click HERE for the collection.
The sweet girl that helped me at Northpark says her manager recommends that these pieces are ordered soon to ensure Christmas delivery because since they take a good 3 weeks before they will arrive on your doorstep.
(The website says that orders taken today will arrive between 12/03 and 12/06.)
I like both the script and the block version (I think what the initials are will
depend on what version is better for you).
My favorite colors are the antique gold, blonde tortoise, tiger’s eye, and hot pink.
I LOVE the necklaces and the bracelets (but I’m not really a fan of the earrings).
Most girls LOVE a monogram, and I am definitely going to have one of these on my Christmas list for myself! But think about this…
Yes. If you’re wanting squeals of delight, this could be the gift.
Click HERE for the entire Moon and Lola collection.
And here’s my 2nd Santa Alert of the day.
It’s SO FUN!
red velvet lip scrub HERE
Have you guys heard of this stuff?
I hadn’t heard of it, but I ran across it online and was first attracted to it because of
the DARLING packaging!
I thought it would be SO CUTE as a Christmas present or stocking stuffer.
And there’s not just red velvet, there’s creme brulee HERE, lemonade HERE,
brown sugar HERE, etc…
And then I started reading the reviews online, and I was sold.
And then I went and got some to try for myself, and OH MY WORD. It is delightful.
I immediately called Shay (because she is a product expert) to see if she had heard of it.
And guess what. She uses it every day, LOVES it, and says this 1 little jar lasts about a year.
Here are some online reviews:
highly recommend this to everyone! At first I thought it was a little
silly. ..who exfoliates lips, but after using it, i’m hooked. I work in
hot dry weather and am constantly battling dry lips, even with lip gloss
and chapstick they don’t ever get silky smooth, after this though, they
scrub is amazing! I met Sara at the Nordstrom Trend show at Fashion
Valley late 2012 and she was amazing too. Her story is awesome and the
products speak for themselves. I choose the brown suger this time
around, but the others are tasty too. I love how easy it is to exfoliate
my lips and expose the beautiful natural color. The lip slip is amazing
as well. I will have to write a review for that too. I bought gift sets
for 3 of my friends for x-mas and they all raved about how much they
loved the scrub and the lip slip. Buy it! You won’t be disappointed 🙂
If you’re lips are like mine, they are begging for a treatment like this!
And the cute packaging makes it great to give as a gift!
I just recently installed a “Christmas for Everybody!” tab on the top of my blog.
It doesn’t have any items highlighted yet, but it will VERY soon. (Working on it now!)
You can click HERE for a well-organized guide to scroll through (look for the below icon in my sidebar or the tab at the top of the blog entitled “Christmas for Everybody”!).
I will add to this list throughout the season, so check back frequently!
And if you have an idea for a gift that is always a big hit around hour house, please e-mail me!
I would LOVE to share some of those with readers also!
On November 25th I’m going to have a WHAT TO BUY FOR YOUR MAN post.
There will be a handful of REALLY GREAT things that any many would love. Many of the things are items that my hubby swears by.
So, wait to shop for your hubby, your boyfriend, your dad, your brother until November 25th.
Mark it on your calendar. November 25th.
You will still be way ahead of the game, and you’ll be able to cross the men in your life off of your list a whole month early!
(There might be a giveaway this day too! Okay, there is a giveaway. And it’s a good one.)
While at Northpark on Friday, I really started getting in the Christmas spirit!

And last, but definitely not least,
I’m going to give you 3 great options for some festive things to wear this holiday season.
Just shopping at the mall but need something cute to wear?
Going to look at Christmas lights and want to look put together?
Going to your kid’s Christmas party at school and want to be a little festive?
Going to a casual Christmas party at your best friend’s house?
This first shirt is great for all fall long, BUT
CAN YOU IMAGINE IT WHEN GOING TO SEE SANTA WITH YOUR KIDS……OR AT
CHURCH ON CHRISTMAS EVE?
It would be DARLING on Christmas Eve.
HOW CUTE IS THIS SHIRT ?!?
I think my green necklace in the picture makes it super
Christmassy….but without the green necklace, you could wear it
not sure if you can tell in the picture, but the front of it is sheer
and I’m wearing a nude/camel colored cami under it. It’s t-shirt
material, and it zips up the side for a nice details.
Also, I like how
the back is solid red.
I wore it with my MUST HAVE jeans (similar pair HERE) and my cognac wedge boots HERE.
Click HERE for this shirt.
Or do you want an option to wear with leggings?
Click HERE for the glitter deer shirt that I am wearing below.
For size reference, I am wearing a small!
And if you or a friend is addicted to Sonic, you are going to want to check out THIS shirt for sure!
That’s it for today ladies!
