Spotlight On: Holiday Cards

holiday cards2

Receiving holiday cards in the mail is one of my favorite parts of the season.  We still have all of the photo ones hanging up on the door from last year and I can’t wait to start swapping them out as new ones rolls in.  The cards are a welcome addition to our entrance and I can’t wait to see what people send out this year.  I don’t send out a photo card because we don’t have kids so I am always on the hunt for new, fun options each year.  (Maybe we’ll make a few with Hudson?)

Save on Shopping to Help Save a Puppy

20131124-120018.jpg

As I mentioned in this previous post, my old roommate opened the fabulous Lola Accessory Boutique in Saratoga Springs. Megan and I both rescued our dogs and it was absolutely the way to go. With the holidays just around the corner there is no better gift than some sparkling jewels. Today we are so excited to have teamed up with Lola and Poor Paws Rescue to bring you holiday savings as well as the chance to give back to a great cause. For any purchase between now and 11/30, our readers will receive 10% off their entire purchase and Lola will also donate 10% to Poor Paws to help them rescue even more dogs and find them a forever home!

Use the code SELECTIONS10 at checkout and happy shopping!

This is how Hudson felt at the vet last week. He is now happily out of the neck doughnut and will be back at the dog park this weekend!

 

Last week we got a great response from this post so we are going to make it a regular thing. Enjoy some fun links and even more fun sales!

Who didn’t want to learn the finale routine from Dirty Dancing? Better yet, they performed it at their wedding reception!

I may or may not have watched this entire thing and continually laughed throughout. If you love game shows and when people say ridiculous answers you must watch this montage.

I had Samantha, what about you?

This new product could simplify a lot of lives; very futuristic way of handling finances.

It’s no secret that we love Hudson but this list confirmed just how much.

Mr. Rogers was a staple in our house and I’m sure yours too, learn even more reasons to admire him. (I also watched the Senate video they suggest)

Everyone’s busy but we should all take the time to slow down and try to do more of these, #1 is a personal favorite!

This guy helped save a family of ducklings and then led them to water.

Couldn’t agree more about this video promoting non-girly girls toys. You go, girls!

Losing weight and reaching your goal isn’t always what you thought it would be. My friend, Jess, shares her story here.

Wegmans is the best. Hands down, no competition. If you need to be convinced or just reminded, read on.

Just because bird-dog hybrids are silly and ridiculous.

Cosmo has more than just sex tips, as evidenced by not one, but two friends who wrote articles this week. Alie’s is a must read, obviously.

Love this skirt and chunky turtleneck look.

Can’t wait to try out this shopping app Devon recommended.

Went to get this Old Navy sweater after seeing it here but all they had was XXL, but coats were 40% off that day so I got this instead.

J.Crew is still killing it with extra 40% off sale and they keep adding new styles.  I scored what could be my best deal ever at J.Crew this week when I got these shiny ponies for only $34.  Someone must have returned them to the store and they were marked as $69.99, still $179.99 online.

Ann Taylor is additional 50% off sale, Factory is additional 40% off sale, Old Navy has been running crazy promotion after crazy promotion this week (check in for daily deals) and Gap and Banana are 40% full price styles.  Happy Shopping!

Spotlight On: Winter Boots

Winter is on its way and we had our first, yet brief, snowfall this week.  The city streets become a slushy mess and so either rain boots with warm liners or boots with a waterproof toe area are a must.
