lions, and tigers, and bears oh my!
ah the first craziness of the holiday shopping has come to a close. did you survive.. or maybe pass the last few days by without getting caught-up in shopping or maybe you were like me and wanted to be all prepared for the deals that came but didn't save enough money to take advantage of a single deal?? yeah MiH Jeans had 30% off their site this past weekend and so did the ever fabulous EmersonMade. shopbop had 20% their site, Lo&Sons gave a whopping 40% off some of their bags, Lands' End Canvas was giving 30% all purchases, Anthropologie did a most beautiful thing and gave an additional 50% off sale merchandise from 6am to 11am online and in-stores... seriously this all reminded me how i should have stashed a few hundred away to spoil myself and the ones i loved with great deals.
i used to be so good at saving when i was little. i was the kid who would have rolls of money from babysitting and yard work too nervous or cautious to spend it on something i wanted regardless of the fact if i needed it or not. always saving for a rainy day or natural disaster because those are so common in Minnesota... well we do get a fair share of tornado's... ok ok but really i wish i could have taken part in a few silly materialistic shopping deals this past weekend. maybe next year. maybe next year.
