Happy Cyber Monday!!

What is Cyber Monday anyways? It is the shopping holiday that immediately follows Black Friday, pretty much a ploy to get us to spend more online. Either way, there are tons of deal online and that's good enough for me! This may be more helpful for our fellow Americans, a lot of the deals have free shipping to the US.

Here are a few of the online steals available:

 
Net-a-porter has their end of season sale, get there quick cause they very rarely have sales!
Victoria's Secret has a 20% discount off your total order, enter VSSAVE20 when you check out
Shop Bop you can save up to $225 when you spend $1000, enter GIFT4U at checkout
Gap has taken 20% off everything with free shipping!
DSW has 25% off total order enter SAVE25 at checkout
Target free shipping on selected items, tons of items on major markdown
Saks up to 40% off on selected women's apparel plus free shipping! enter HOLIDAY9 at checkout

Crate and Barrel 15% off and free shipping, enter SAVE15 at checkout

Happy Shopping!

Victoria's Secret 2009

This year the Victoria Secret Fashion Show (airs on CBC December 1st) went for five themes with twelve outfits each (Star Trooper, All Aboard, Pink Planet, Enchanted Forest, and Romantic Journey)

Once again Heidi Klum walked the runway (twelfth show in a row) six weeks after giving birth to her fourth child!! Adriana Lima unfortunately did not make it this year as she gave birth a couple days before the show.
Here are a few of the best shots/outfits:




















Gotta Love Heidi!

Umbra Love



For those of you living in Toronto, Umbra is the shocking loud pink building off of Queen Street...and for those of you who don't Umbra can be found everywhere. Most home decor stores carry it...why? Because Umbra rocks! Always maintaining sleek design and functionality Umbra steals my heart.


Here are a few pieces that I love:

New from IKEA!

I absolutely adore IKEA, I know the furniture is close to impossible to assemble, and the store is such a maze that your 2 hour afternoon turns into lunch, dinner and maybe cocktails but I love getting lost in that store! IKEA is a great source for party items like napkins, cups, plates etc.


Here are a few items that are cheap and chic for your holiday parties:

See My Vest...See My Vest

Whether it's a style you can rock or just prefer to observe, the furry vest seems to be everywhere!
Personally I think this is a trend that may not stick around too long, best to invest in a disposable one rather than one that requires a down payment. Careful...the cheap ones can sometimes look really ratty...
Here are some of my favs ranging from $24.80 all the way up to $2195.00!!!!
