EASY HOLIDAY SHOPPING

Not sure if it is the 70 degree temperatures in late November, or the effects of our online shopping ability, but yesterday when I took my soon-to-be 11 year old granddaughter birthday shopping at the mall, it was NOT crowded. And, the traffic was fairly light even for a normal Saturday. I think the perfect scene is a balance. I did enjoy shopping at a locally owned pet store on Small Business Saturday; they were super appreciative. It will be interesting to see how this holiday shopping thing evolves over years to come. I hope we will continue to see a bit of everything. Today, I am staying home. If that is your plan as well, stop by one or more of my favorite online places and check out some great gift ideas for inside or outside your windows.

And on a lighter note, Fall is here, and I love this time of year.

Warm and Cozy

It must be cooling down. Cozy is starting to look so appealing!

SNAKESKIN 

Middle of September, and even though the temperatures here in the Land of Enchantment are still hitting 90 and above, I am thinking it may be time for some new throws. The dog that lives at my house seems to have taken over my favorite from the last two years. I love a good excuse! BestHomeFashion.com has a fantastic selection of faux fur and wool throws.

GO AHEAD: HIRE A PRO!

(Courtesy of My Window Man in Albuquerque)

Fall will be here soon, and it is time to plan ahead! Window cleaning is probably on your list, and I bet you would love to treat yourself to a break. If you have ever attempted to do yours, in and out, all by yourself, you know how challenging it is. Great reason to HIRE A PROFESSIONAL! They know how to wield that squeegee, climb ladders and do all those tricky windows. It really is a delight to have sparkly clean glass. I promise to expand this list over time, but here are some suggestions to help you find just the right professional.

LABOR DAY SPECIAL

Tomorrow we recognize Labor Day here in the USA, a day dedicated to honoring American workers. When I lived in the Pacific Northwest that meant it was time for school to start and time to put away all the summer clothes.

Well, so much for those rules when one lives in New Mexico! Kids returned to school in mid August and who wants to put flip flops away when the temperatures are still reaching 90? Although I will say that when I took a walk this morning with that dog that lives at my house, it felt a lot like fall.

One thing that probably no one retires after Labor Day is sunglasses. I know I need them all year round, and I even did in the Pac NW. If you want to stock up in style be sure to check out SunglassWarehouse.com over this Labor Day weekend. All of there sunglasses are 40% off. This offer is only good until midnight ET on 9/4/17. Orders over $25 are shipped FREE!

Happy Labor Day!

Shady Spectacles

 

Harlem

Blocking out the sun’s glare is almost as old as the sun itself. Exposure to UV light can increase the chances of cataracts, macular degeneration, conjunctival growths and certain cancers in the eye. New studies show that high altitude, mid-day exposure and some medications can make things worse. Why take that chance? Get some polarized protection at Sunglass WarehouseYou can buy them with prescription lenses, to wear over your normal glasses or just for fun. Even if you love to buy a top brand pair, having extras or substitutes is a great idea.  

Sunglass Warehouse is the place to visit!  You can get both protection and fashion. Their prices are so affordable you can have a pair handy anytime. Right now, they have many styles for under $20, and a code to use to get 15 % off your order. You will be amazed at the wide selection, and the options for protection and style. FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25!

THOSE DOG DAYS…

 

 

 

If asked, the dog that resides at my house would certainly agree that the dog days of summer have arrived.

It has been hot and humid (even here in Albuquerque) for days. Afternoons call out loud for a person to nap along with those dogs. Before I heed to that invitation, I want to remind all readers that the online places we refer you to have great ideas for summertime.

mypotsandplanters.com  decor for the patio and indoors – FREE SHIPPING on orders over $49

bloomingbulb.com fall planting ideas – up to 60% OFF

wallpaperforwindows.com  privacy and decor for your windows

blindsexpress.com blinds and shades at discounted prices – FREE SHIPPING ( up to 94″ wide)

sunglasswarehouse.com great styles – super prices – FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25

And if your windows are dirty, I always suggest that you HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. 

If you insist on washing your own windows, please use a squeegee and a wetbar. And, the suggestion of using vinegar and wadded up newspapers that you see in a lot of “how to” info is really not a good one.Best tip…HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. They are not expensive and it really does improve your outlook on life!
