1. Mini Bath Goodies: THESE ones at Bath and Body works are on sale 3 for $10 and are so delicious!

3. Terry’s Chocolate Orange: this has been a tradition in our family since forever, delicious and classic.

5. A Guilty Pleasure DVD or CD: Camelot is a must for our collections. Hello 60’s fashion and make-up and songs to die for!

6. New Scarf: like THIS is perfect to see us through winter. Plus, it works out great if you roll it up and stuff it in the leg of stocking!

7. Fashion Jewelry: So fun to have something new and spunky. THESE are great to group together or split up.

Packing for Holiday Travel

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Sarah’s post inspired me to write a little about packing for holiday travel. Don’t you hate the way you feel when you travel? The one time I want to look good is when I’m seeing people I haven’t seen for years, and despite the best of efforts it seems that even my eyelashes don’t want to cooperate while traveling.

At first, the obvious solution was to pack more…more clothes…more make-up…more hair products and tools. Result? Still icky.

Now I’ve realized feeling and looking good away from home is all about packing the right things, not more. So here are a few of my crucial travel tips:

#1 Water bottle with filter=Hydration

When I first saw bobble water bottles in the store I was so mad I hadn’t thought of this invention! I’ve discovered the number one trick in feeling good while your away is hydration. It costs a lot to keep buying bottled water and for those water snobs like me out there, this filter can ease the fears of tap water away from home. Seriously one of the best inventions EVER to always have in your purse.

#2 Blanket = Sleep

Some people have their pillow or something else they can’t sleep without and I have never understood this logic or having a child dependent on a sleep aid until now. Different sleeping environments really can affect your quality of sleep, so when I started bringing my Restoration Hardware blanket on trips, I slept a gazillion times better. Really? A little embarrassing, but this blanket is amazeballs and Sarah’s find at Costco is just as lovely.

#3 Slippers = Comfort

It’s official and obvious that I’m now 30, as I am listing slippers as a travel essential. But seriously comfort equals joy at a hotel or anywhere when I bring my lovely mocs along. If you haven’t tried bringing your slippers along, give it a try.

#4 Curling Iron Cover = Worry-free Travel

No one wants to arrange travel plans by how quickly their flat iron can cool down before leaving. I finally bought a curling iron cover, and now can get ready and leave quickly without worrying about burning clothes planes/houses etc.

#4 Chocolate + Gum + Perfume = Refreshment

Sarah is the best little packer and surprised me at the airport one time with our favorite Ritter chocolate. A delicious treat always helps with flight delay frustration!  I always make sure I’m am stocked with a fresh pack of gum and a travel-size perfume (free from Bath + Body Works coupons) before leaving on a trip. They work like a charm to detox from airplane air. As Sar mentioned, our favorite is refreshing and not too fruity or overpowering,  “White Citrus“.

Okay, just one last thing…this might not be an essential but wouldn’t travel be a little easier with a new wool weekender?

I saw this at the Sundance Outlet, and am in lo0ove. Wouldn’t it be smashing for holiday travel? 50% off, but still $199.

Free Movie Ticket with 2 General Mills Cereal Purchase

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

This week Sarah alerted me to our favorite deal EVERRRRRR…

After purchase, simply go HERE to enter codes found on the inside of the cereal boxes and print off your movie voucher. The voucher can be used at any of these theaters within 60 days of printing (codes expire on website Dec 2013).

Each box of cereal usually costs $3, so it costs around $6 for two boxes of cereal and a free movie ticket!

This week at Target, General Mills cereal are buy three, get one free. I purchased four boxes which cost $9 and equaled two movie tickets! When I checked out at the register, a coupon printed out for $2 off my next 5 boxes of General Mills cereal!

Here are a few coupons for Golden Graham, Chex, and Cherrios to make the deal even better.

It’s time to stock up on cereal folks, this is such a great deal! As this is a new deal not all the grocery stores have the specially marked cereal boxes. Hopefully all stores will be stocked with new cereal soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

I’ll be spending my free movie tickets on James Bond and guilty pleasure, Breaking Dawn part 2. I must say I think I will enjoy them a little bit more than normal knowing I got such a great deal on the tickets!
