Goodbye 2018, See You In 2019

This is going to be a pretty brief post again. If you follow me on social media, then you may have already seen my post the other night about me being ill. I have managed to get both Sinusitis and the Flu at the same time, and I have been pretty out of it. I am starting to feel minutely better, but it will most likely be a few days before I am really better.

I of course missed posting the subscription box reviews I had for Thursday and today. And if you have been with me for at least a year or more, you know I take a couple of weeks vacation from the blog to work on my home and Poshmark every year after Christmas. I had planned on taking three this year because of a lot of changes that need to be made before my niece moves in this summer. But due to being sick it looks like that may be extended. I am just going to officially call it, and say that my vacation has started.

I will be posting on social media some during this time, I won’t be completely abandoning everything. I will be back to the sometime mid January. I was hoping for the 13th, but it really will depend on how long it takes me to recover from being sick.

Good news for those of you who have been missing fashion posts, I do have several planned for January and February. I am hoping some of the home changes we are making will make it easier to keep them coming on a more regular basis. I will also have those last couple of box reviews for you as well as some shampoo reviews and some new things I am working on.

In the mean time, I want to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I have been working on an Amazon Idea List just for you last minute shoppers. So make sure to check out my Last Minute Christmas Gifts list. In addition to my list, take a look at the Last Minute Deals page, while you are on Amazon.

Zulily has a Holiday Shop posted, where many items can ship out fast. Those items guaranteed to arrive for Christmas will be marked with a little package symbol.

If you are specifically looking for plus size clothing, then take a look at Simply Be. They now offer two to three day tracked shipping when you upgrade to Express Shipping. And its free when you spend over $100. Most people should be able to order up to the 20th and receive their packages on time for Christmas.

Hautelook offered the following graphic for their cut off dates to get items for Christmas. The picture is clickable if you want to find out what is available on Hautelook.

GET GIFTS IN TIME!** | Order by 11:59PM PST Dec 16 Standard Shipping | Order by 9AM PST Dec 20 2-Day Shipping | Order by 9AM PST Dec 21 Next-Day Shipping | SHOP GIFTS

 

You can get your Walgreen’s orders shipped to you in time for Christmas if you order by 3 p.m. on December 21st. They have a Holiday Shop page set up to make your Christmas shopping easy. And for you super late shoppers there is same day pick up on all photo gifts. How great of a gift would a mug or a puzzle with a family photo be? And if that isn’t your thing, you can always check where the item you are looking for is available in your town. Every item has a button that says find in store. Simply click that and it will tell you all the stores closest to you that stock the item you are looking for. No more driving all over town searching for it.

 

Tell me in the comments where your favorite place to do last minute shopping is.

What’s Happening In November And December 2018

What's happening in November and December 2018

What's happening in November and December 2018

We are officially in full swing of the Holiday Season now, and both November and December are going to be packed full of all sorts of good things. I have a lot of things on both my personal calendar as well as a lot of topics I want to cover on the blog.

First I want to take a minute to remind everyone in the US to vote on Tuesday, November 6. I’m not going to lecture you on who and what I think you should vote for, that should be a personal decision. Many times we feel like we have no voice or no say in how our country is run. Voting is your chance to make your voice heard and effect real change in our country. So no matter what your political views or which candidate you support, PLEASE VOTE!

On a personal note, November is a big birthday month in my group of people. Me, my husband, and a few of my friends all have birthdays during the month of November. So needless to say there is a lot of parties going on in November. And of course we can’t forget the biggest party of them all in November, Thanksgiving. So the month should be filled with friends and family, and I hope it is for all of you too.

Something you may not know about me is that I really am into being a Scorpio. Not in the sense of reading my horoscope all the time, but I have always love my astrological symbols and I have found the description of Scorpios accurate to me. Don’t be surprised if some related things pop up on the blog and my social media this November.

Of course my subscription box reviews will continue through November and on into December. I have been starting out slow but will be ramping up through November. Speaking of reviews, I will be getting back to my Shampoo and Conditioner Reviews in November. Since I was unable to do them for a few months, I have decided to continue doing these reviews on through 2019.

In December there will be a bit of a theme implemented in a lot of the posts you see here on the blog, and most likely the ones you see on social media as well. I will be talking a lot about giving, whether that be gift giving or giving of your time and so on. There may even be a surprise where I give to you, my readers, so make sure you are following me everywhere. If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen that I purchased and beauty advent calendar. I will be opening that on Instagram in December. If anyone is interested in finding out where they can still get a beauty advent calendar in the US, let me know in the comments and I can try to get a post together for that.

And of course most of us will be busy with Christmas at the end of December. I will be spending a couple of days with my family at Christmas time. And then as is my tradition I will be taking a some time off from the blog after Christmas and will be back with you in the second week of January. I will be posting on social media some at that time, so not a total vacation.
