There are two places I would like to live: in a Sundance Catalog and a Gaiam catalog. They both look like heaven on earth, don’t they? Well, my pursuit of Gaiam-topia just became a little less expensive considering they are holding their Winter Clearance Sale. I’d particularly like to build my Gaiam-topia in my bathroom. The bathroom ideas in the Gaiam catalog look like you are stepping into a spa. I love these Lotus Leaf Bath Towel Hooks. Reg $32, today only $19.99. Oh and these Carved Acacia Panels. They aren’t discounted too much, but they are really beautiful, and spa-like! Reg $99, today $79.99.
Well, we made it to Friday. Today is my children’s last day of school before the break and I am so happy to have them home for over a week. It is also (finally) going to get cold enough so that we can have our first fire, just in time for Christmas. I’m feeling very grateful these days, and looking forward to Christmas with my family. TGIF, bargain hunters!

Through December 19th, Alba Botanica is celebrating the holidays by taking 25% off their top 10 selling products (code: HOLIDAY25). If you are in to natural beauty items, Alba is a favorite of many people. Their Natural Very Emollient Body Lotion Maximum is on the top 10 list – regularly $12 with 25% off! This lotion has alpha hydroxy acids in it which isn’t talked about very often anymore, but is the common ingredient in those lotions that I find most effective.
If you are a little addicted to lip balm like I am, it’s a good idea to find the purest balm you can. (I can’t imagine how much lip balm I end up consuming!) Another great product on the top ten list is this Natural Hawaiian Lip Balm Nourishing Coconut Cream. 100% vegetarian and no yucky chemicals and it is only $2.99 with 25% off!
There are positives to being a very empathetic person like myself. For example, I make a great friend to talk to because I can really put myself in your shoes. It also makes me very forgiving since I can (usually) understand why people do the things they do. However, there are several downsides, and one of them is that when a tragedy like what happened in Newtown, Connecticut happens, I cannot stop thinking about it or feeling for those families. My husband is what one might call an “avoider”. It’s not that he doesn’t have feelings about it (in fact, I saw his eyes fill up with tears several times) but that he can choose not to think about it, so he doesn’t walk around like me every day. For the past several days that my children have been in school, I’ve had moments of panic, where I want to get in the car and go pick them up. It is irrational and I know that, but I have gone so far as to get in my car and pull out of the driveway. What stops me is the thought that if I take them out today, what am I going to do tomorrow? I only have a few days to go until Christmas break, which is very comforting. Meanwhile, I’ve taken to dedicating my runs to each of the victims. Yesterday I ran for this little cutie-patootie Olivia Engel. She is just one of the cutest little angels I have ever seen.
Count your blessings today, bargain hunters!

Christmas is a week from today. Where does the time go? My children are starting to get very excited for the big day. I managed to get everything done except for my cards which I have to get out soon. Then I need to concentrate on Christmas Eve when I have my husband’s entire family over. It’s chaotic, but my little ones will grow up with great Christmas Eve memories. Have a great Tuesday, bargain hunters!

I have no words for the horrible events in Connecticut yesterday. I have never felt so lucky to be able to pick my son up off the bus or hug my daughter before she went to sleep last night. I am just full of gratitude today but incredibly sad for those parents who lost a child. It is unimaginable. I read somewhere that our brains protect us from devastating news by releasing chemicals that help to soften the blow; by blocking some of the trauma and allowing it to come on gradually. That is the only way I can imagine surviving such an ordeal.
I have found myself going back and forth between news sites and shopping sites this morning. They don’t call it retail therapy for nothing.
JCrew right now has 30% off and free shipping on every purchase (code: WISHLIST). This Cambridge Cable Turtleneck Sweater comes in a bunch of different colors. Reg $98, it is $69.99 plus an additional 30% off with code and it ships free!

Bluefly is in the holiday spirit – they have created 6 amazing sales for up to 80% off! Plus take an additional $40 off a $200 order (code: FLY40). If you love designer clothing this is the place for you. I could spend some serious money on this site. Like on this Autumn Cashmere Cavalry Cashmere Contrast Shoulder Crewneck Sweater. It has every detail that I love – 100% cashmere, ribbed and raw hems, and I love the panels at the shoulders. I. Just. Want. It. $120.40 today!
Although I might possibly want this Hayden Black & Grey Melange Cashmere Turtleneck Tunic just as much. Okay, it’s a tie. Anything I can throw over leggings that looks this good really belongs in my closet! $116.35 today!
Okay, okay, I’m obsessed with sweaters. I admit it. But there are soooo many beautiful ones like this Autumn Cashmere Barberry Cashmere Boxy Boatneck Tunic.

Bluefly does have much more in this sale besides sweaters. Like jewelry. I shouldn’t even look, but I’ll do it for you. I love this Wilow Stil Gold and Gunmetal Triple Chain-o-ring Necklace. So versatile and a bargain at $33.00!
Happy Friday bargain hunters!
They recently re-modeled the Eddie Bauer store near me. It is like walking into a ski lodge, which I LOVE (see below). Eddie Bauer clothing though is a hit or miss for me as far as sizing. I’m not sure what body type they are designing for, but it’s certainly not mine! Unfortunately. However, when I do get a good fit, it is usually a piece of clothing I wear for years. Right now they are having a Holiday Sale, plus orders over $49 ship free (Code: SNOW).
I have this Color Block Mockneck Zip Sweater and I love it. It is a great price today at only $34.97. They also have it in a gray and a white – all of the colors are very nice.
To get that total in your shopping bag over the $49, it would pair nicely with this Cable Knit Hat. It comes in four colors and is only $14.99!
There are so many more great things on this site – including gift ideas for everyone on your list with guaranteed Christmas delivery.
Here at my house it was yet another morning trying to get my teenage daughter up and out to the bus. I can only compare it to having root canal done on a daily basis. It is certainly in stark contrast to getting my tween son out the door. In fact, having a girl and a boy has given me great insight into the differences (very, very big differences) between females and males. Overall, can I just say, that I am TIRED.
Have a great day bargain hunters!
