Finally Friday!!

My Dear Friends,

This has been a week!  My boss' Alzheimer's medicine is NOT working.  The reason my co-workers and I are here is to keep the company running...Don't get me wrong, he built this hugely successful, multi-faceted company from absolutely nothing.  He has had an amazing career...but now, he just comes into the office and sits at his desk and stares at the wall all day long like he's busy.  He does nothing for this company anymore.  He's just there is people (his old friends) want to come visit.  So, in his spare time, he comes up with things to complain about.  Yesterday it was the unacceptable brand of Grape Jelly at one of the convenience stores he owns.  Yes, he went on a literal tirade about Grape Jelly.  For a couple hours.  He even called his lawyer to talk about it.  I could go on and on and on.....about the insane things that he says/does, but I won't.  It's the weekend.  That's TWO full days of calm.  And I need them after this week.

I just got this really cute dress from Kohls...wanna see?  It's a VERA WANG and it was $13.60 marked down from $68!


I love it!  Oh and E.L.F. has some sweet deals today too!

Happy Earth Day!

My Dear Friends,

Today marks the 40th Anniversary of Earth DaySenator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day in 1970 to raise and reflect growing public awareness of environmental issues.  The environment wasn't making big news at the time, but a 1969 New York Times article about Earth Day noted a groundswell of activism. Recent ecological disasters in Ohio and California helped galvanize public response.
The senator modeled Earth Day after a fervent movement on college campuses and chose a young graduate student at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government to organize the first national event. It was originally called something less catchy, but "Earth Day" was the name that stuck. (Info. via Bing)

Many retailers use this opportunity to pass on the savings.  Quite a few companies now a days use better methods to produce their products.  I for one am grateful for that.  Today for my contribution to Earth Day, I will be planting a few new trees.  Every plant adds just a little more clean air to our environment, as well as a substantial amount of beauty.

As far as retailers go, here is a small list of companies that are giving back:

Tarte.  Right now they are offering 30% off the entire site with code "EARTHDAY", Free Shipping on orders over $40, and if you spend $60 you get a free "Be good to your Mother (Earth)" recycled tote. Tarte also carries a Vegan line of cosmetics.  Their line is also all-natural, and you can read more about it here.  One last thing - they offer 15% off your purchase if you send in your old products for recycling!

Forever 21.  The Heritage 21 line has specially designed Earth Day shirts.  If you spend $40 they will give you a reusable, recyclable water bottle for free.

Spring Hill Nursery.  They are currently offering 67% off select plants TODAY ONLY in celebration of Earth Day.

My Dear Friends,

Does anyone know what TV show my blog title is from?

So....this week is creeping by.  I feel like I've been at work all darn week, & am ready for a break...then my head says..."Um, excuse me...sorry to bother you, dear...but it's only Tuesday.".... Apparently my inner thoughts are quite polite! LOL

I ordered a bunch of Hydrangeas from the Spring Hill Nursery sale that I posted about yesterday.  It's funny, because I just ordered $20 worth of stuff, then got it for free (you had to pay $7.95 for shipping), then I did it again.  Why pay $20 when you can pay $7.95?!  My little garden will hopefully be "Hydrangea Happy" pretty soon!!

Finally Friday! (UPDATED)

My Dear Friends,

So I started off my day by wishing an old ex boyfriend Happy Birthday.  We are texting, catching up...then he drops the "I'm getting married" bomb on me.  How should I feel about this, because I'm honestly not sure what is going through my head right now.  I know I should be happy for him, and partly I am.  But it's just so weird!  I think what I'm feeling is shock?  Boy was a classic commitment-phobe.  We dated and broke up more times that I can count.  Is this that "I'll always hold a special place for you in my heart" stuff everyone talks about...could that be what I'm feeling?  Color me confused.  What a way to start a weekend.



Click here for a $10 off $30 purchase at Party City which is good until 4/18!

I received a coupon for Free Shipping on orders of $49 or more from J. C. Penney today that I wanted to share.  Use code "FREE49" to get this deal!

Click here for a $5 off $25 purchase at Kirkland's which is good until 4/21!


Oh, and Zombee Candle just debuted a new fragrance called "Chez Tut", which is a mixture of patchouli, frankincense & sandalwood!  A new fresh-cut grass scent will debut soon as well!  I can't wait for that one!  I'm still burning my Pomme d'Alexandria in the office...I love it!

15 April 2010

I need a nap!

My Dear Friends,

Holy Spicoli...(yeah, I said it) I didn't post yesterday.  That is suckish.  I had a DAY yesterday.  I barely had time to breathe.  So, with one day to go until the weekend, I'm just saying "heck with it all" and taking a time out.  Ha.  And so I use this "time out" to blog!  What can I say?  It kind of relaxes me.  It feels like I'm talking to a good friend.  A friend that I can talk about anything with.  Good times.

So Torrid has an extra 50% off their clearance right now!  Not too shabby!  And because I ♥ ya, you can use my code "4AF10OFF" for an extra 10% off of your whole order!

COFFEE!  Kill two birds with one stone at Starbucks on April 15. Celebrate the upcoming Earth Week (April 19-24) AND with a free cup of java when you bring in a reusable mug. Not only will it save Starbucks thousands of dollars in operating costs for one day, it will save thousands of trees -- so everyone wins, plus you score a freebie!

Over 20 retired fragrances at Bath & Body Works are back for a great sale!  Choose either Buy 2 Get 1 or Buy 3 Get 2 on these scents for a limited time!

Use code "MADNESS" at Sephora for 15% off your order.  No minimum purchase - but it is for beauty insiders only, which is FREE to sign up for. Ends on 4/19!

Get a one-year subscription to Glamour magazine through Discount Mags for only $4!  Choose the one-year subscription for $12, use coupon code "3863" at the checkout for a savings of $8, and bam!  A whole year's subscription for the cost of one issue!

I'm attempting to get more fit lately.  I recently bought this Stamina Yoga/Pilates Workout System.  It's pretty awesome that they just dropped the price from $60 to $9.72 (& available to Free Super Saver Shipping w/ yoru $25 purchase)  The system includes a 24- by 68-inch mat, two blocks, a cotton strap, and a 60-minute workout on DVD and VHS.

...Monday, Monday...

My Dear Friends,

I have such a headache!  I've been regularly taking Tylenol since about 4 a.m. and it still won't go away. So stubborn.  I can't even pinpoint where the headache is, it's like it's moving around my noggin.  Fail. 

I was so busy this weekend.  I helped a friend move furniture, which of course turned into a shopping trip....Pier 1 had an amazing clearance sale.  I got 10 large plates, 10 small plates, 8 bowls, and 2 mugs all in the same pattern for $40!  They plates were regularly $10 each, so I scored a helluva deal.  I really needed new plates as it had been about 7 years since I'd bought any. 

Yesterday was my friends' Bridal Shower.  I'm a bridesmaid in her wedding next month.  This is my dress. (in Watermelon)  She got some amazing gifts to decorate her house with.  Maybe I should get married?  If just for the presents LOL  (kidding)

Anyway, this is completely off topic...but do any of you have an Ab Circle Pro?  I'm really thinking about buying one, but I would like to know if it actually is worth it...or a piece of junk.  Please let me know!

Finally Friday!

My Dear Friends,

*sigh*

I'm so glad it's Friday.  I've been so tired this whole week.  I fell asleep at 9 pm last night, which never happens.  Tomorrow, I have to bake & decorate multiple cakes for my friends' wedding shower.  I've been an amateur cake decorator since Jr. High, so I really get excited when people ask me to make instead of buy a cake for an event!  The colors are hot pink & brown, and I think I'm going to use ribbon and silk flowers for accents.  I'm excited.  I will try to take and post pictures...Speaking of pictures, I really need to show you the crazy birthday cakes I made for my birthday.  I made them to look like they would fit in at the Mad Hatter's table.  They weren't decorated with any "Alice" type decorations but they looked like they would fit right in.

(I'm currently burning a Pomme d'Alexandria Zombee Candle in my office and it smells amazing!  It seriously blows Yankee Candle away.  This one little candle fills the whole office with delicious red apple scent!)

Anyway, who has exciting plans this weekend? 

Have any of you ever used any DuWop products?  I have their Twilight Lip Venom (which I ♥).  Well, for the next four days (4/9-4/12), take 15% off popular DuWop essentials: Foundation of Youth, Venom Gloss, Mattillume, new EyeCatcher eye shadows and Lash Venom.  Use code "SPRING" to get your discount!

From 4/9-4/11, get Free Shipping with any order at Lancome!  I've been obsessed with Juicy Tubes for years.  If you have something you'd like, right now is the time to get it!

Buy one piece of fine jewelry and get the second piece for free at Fashion Bug! Choose from gorgeous Swarovski pieces, amethyst pendants and earrings, blue topaz & more. The sale includes necklaces, earrings, pendants, bracelets, rings and sets. With prices starting as low as $24.00, you can afford to get new jewelry without your budget taking a hit.

NEW from Artscow!

Artscow has a great new offer!

They are offering customized handbag hangers for only $6.99 (w/ $3.99 shipping) 

Not sure what a purse hanger is?  They are hooks that sit on top of the edge of a table and allow you to hang your bag from it so that your bag doesn't have to sit on the floor.  This may seem odd to some people but I personally don't like to leave my purse on the floor.  Besides, having your purse right beside you (instead of flung over the back of a chair or on the ground) can be safer and more convenient!

Here are the details of the hangers:


"Our great bag hanger provides an easy way to hang your purse or handbag. The hanger folds into a disc or heart shape and are the perfect size for carrying in your purse. Customize with your own personalized logo (1 1/4" in diameter), with enamel coating for long time protection."


•Made of zinc alloy
•Hold up to 12 lbs
•Rubber non-slip back.
•Hook measures 3 1/2" length
•Disc measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/4"


Interested?  Click here to create your hanger now using discount code "DISCOUNT30P".

Attack of the Pollen! (UPDATED)

My Dear Friends,

I love living in the South.  It's beautiful.  But I have one enemy - Pollen!  Every single vehicle you pass looks like it got spray painted yellow.  My porch is concrete...and yellow.  I can't walk outside barefoot right now because I don't want feet that are...you guessed it...yellow.  I don't know about you, but I'd rather not spend my day sneezing and wiping my eyes.  It just doesn't seem fun to me.

I'm going to stay inside and shop online.  I know, right...big surprise!

I just ordered this for mi madre for Mother's Day from Clinique.  She's really gotten into makeup recently, so I'm trying to feed that habit!  Use code "FSCHAT07" and get Free Shipping on any purchase! 

You can take 20% off the "Stylist Picks" at Forever 21.  Nothing really stood out to me, but maybe you will find something that you love!

Gone Again.

My Dear Friends,

Well, my best friend has officially began his training to go "over there".  He will be gone for over a year.  He gets to go on leave twice, which is when he gets to come home for a week at a time. but it will be a year and a half before he is home for good.  :(

This is his second tour and it still isn't any easier.  You go from seeing someone all day long to not even getting to speak with them - it leaves a large void. 

I'm going to be making him (& his group) care packages while he's gone.  This got me thinking about Hobby Lobby.  Now that I can shop online, it's opened up a whole new world of ideas. They have free shipping until April 10th, so I am going to stock up on Organizer Boxes so I can make each person their own box. 

cute, huh?

I'm thinking stationary, envelopes, pens, stamps...things they can use to write people with.  Maybe journals?  Snacks, of course.  The Bestie says that the military supplies them with toiletries, but you always see people sending tons of that stuff over there, so they must need that too.

New Promotion at Old Navy - Barker's Bones!

Starting today, the coupon hunt at Old Navy Weekly has been moved over to the Old Navy Facebook page. Every Thursday, Old Navy will reset the coupons on the Barker's Bones page. This week, the highest value available will be $50 off a $100 purchase. It looks like you will only get one chance per week, per person. The good news about this is that is seems that the hackers will get less of the high dollar coupons and that means more for all of us! Check out the offical press release from the website:

"It’s time to hunt for Old Navy coupons in a fun new way. Starting today you can play Barker’s Bones for a chance to dig up some super savings. Play with Barker in his back yard of savings for randomly generated coupon offers that you’ll love for your next Old Navy adventure. This week’s highest value coupon is $50 off $100. Play once a week!"

**Update: Barker's Bones updated and there were 120 $50 off $100 purchase coupons available and they went pretty quick. The only other coupon available is $10 off $50. If you read through the rules, it states that Barker's Bones will update once a week (on friday from now on), but the contest will end on 4/15/10. That is not a lot of time for this promotion so hopefully they have something else in the works! 

Finally Friday!

My Dear Friends,

My best friend is back in town for the weekend and I'm so excited to see him.  He is about to be deployed (AGAIN) and this is his last weekend in town before he goes so I'm going to try to make it as much fun as possible.  It will be almost a year before I get to see him again, so I have to make this weekend good!

Happy April Fools Day!

My Dear Friends,

No fooling here, these deals are real!  Did anyone get pranks pulled on them today?  My boss pretended to have laryngitis, which he found funny - I didn't.  It would have been funny if it were true.  I would have been excited, even.  (Does that make me a bad person?)

I planted more flowers in my "flower garden" yesterday.  I can't remember the name of them, but they look like bright red flames.  I also planted some bright pink and bright red begonias and more marigolds.  I have recently become enamored with the color yellow.  I've never been much of a yellow fan, until recently.  Not sure what is up with the switch, but I'm definitely a fan right now.
