Sale on Now

Sears is having a big sale right now. Discounts offered on lots of merchandise in all departments. My purchases yesterday were limited to intimate apparel but I did have to pass through a few departments to get there and noticed sale signs everywhere. I picked up a couple of Vogue sports bras on sale for 55% off the regular price (just started pole dancing class twice a week on top of the two Abs, Butt and Thigh Blast classes I take already so extra sports bras helps cut down on doing extra laundry) and Jockey items are buy 2 get 1 free - they've come out with some great colours and prints for their cotton undies.

It Was Worth It!

If you didn’t make it to LifeFest, here’s what you missed. Samples from Nivea, Cetaphil, John Frieda, Goat’s Milk, Softlips, Off Skintastic, Twinnings, Schick, Dare, Dr. Scholl’s, Larabar, Tylenol, Nativa™Organics, Royal, Orgnx by LaCoupe, Garnier Fructis, Mars, Dove Chocolate, SoftSoap, and those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head. There were also lots of food and beverage samples to try right there and then. Coupons galore! And everyone working at the booths were friendly, generous and happy to answer questions you had about their products and interested in the feedback you gave them. The only thing they could do to improve the experience can be summed up in two words – coat check (they need to provide one).
