Okay Dolls, you know the best sales are just around the corner! Are you ready?! Do you brave the mall or shop online? I’m an online shopper through and through.

Black Friday/Cyber Week Tips and Tricks
First of all, did you know it’s no longer Cyber Monday, it’s Cyber Week?! This year that means special deals the 20th through the 27th. Online retailers wants to take advantage of the sale excitement and know that a lot of people have extra days off and more time to shop. As a matter of fact, Thanksgiving Day is getting to be one of the biggest sales days! People are full of yummy food, on the couch, and checking out the online sales. From the retailers point of view, why not offer the best deal right then and close the sale, right? That means better deals earlier for us.
Make a list, check it twice. Hey, Santa knew what he was doing. Holiday shopping can be like going down a rabbit hole … and every twist and turn seems to take me to something I want for myself! Anyone else guilty? Make a list of people you want to buy gifts for and some ideas for each. And I always buy myself one present too, because … well, do I need a reason?! And hey, remember this is the perfect time to buy yourself your holiday party clothes. (Here are my picks for best holiday dresses for my 40 plus babes!)
