When a Snow Day Was Just a Snow Day #BombCyclone

Remember the days of yore when a snow day was exactly that… a snow day?

Ahhh yes. The days of yore. Before we had laptops and cell phones. Where a snow day was exactly that a snow day. A day without work. A bonus day off from work. You couldn’t work from home because there were no laptops or cell phones. You spent your day waiting to find out if school/work was cancelled, shoveling, chatting with your neighbors, enjoying a fire while sipping hot cocoa (possibly spiked with Peppermint Schnapps) or wine, shovel some more while slightly tipsy. Making snow angels, having snowball fights, sledding at a local hotspot.

Now everyone brings their devices home the night before a big snowpocalypse. And they work. And us work at home folks… we never get that snow day luxury because we already work from home, right? Although I can’t complain. Working from home is truly the best. But now those that don’t have work, have to not only work, but also still shovel and deal with the snowy mess, although beautiful.

And what about tv? LOL All the morning shows that I have on in the background aren’t on and its news 24/7. The snow here, the snow there, a random crazy person, more snow. We know… there’s snow. A LOT of snow.

And is it me… or is it hard to focus or accomplish anything on a snow day? Like extra hard, right? Cause I keep running to the window to see the snow accumulation, I need a snack, more coffee. I need to catch up on all the Hallmark Christmas movies I have on DVR that I never got through. Today should be the day for that, right? Clean the closet, my office?!? Sounds like a great idea but highly unlikely.

I guess I’ll just stay super comfy and bundled up in my I Love Snow days shirt, comfy jogger pants and socks. I’ll try not to put too much pressure on myself to get much done cause I mean we all would rather just look out our windows at the beauty of it all because we all know that tomorrow it will be a brown, dirty, muddy and ugly mess.

Dear Maria – Open Letter to #LillyForTarget Employee

OC_041915_PP_Wmns_770x235_NoCTA

Dear Maria,

Thank you! Thank you for still smiling at 10am in the Women’s Department during the #LillyForTarget sale. You were still in such great spirits and so nice and helpful. I’m so sorry you had to break up a fight today. Those Ebay re-seller’s are nuts! Clearly by your awesome attitude you won that fight! 🙂 Thank you for keeping the department so maintained today. I have no idea how you did it. I also appreciate that you instantly put returned merchandise back on the shelves right away. (See sometimes it’s not just the early bird that gets the Lilly worm.) I love that you answered the phone letting callers know you were all out of Lilly Pulitzer. Why have them make the trek for no reason? I think it’s super cool that you gave purchase limits to folks this morning. You rock! Man I should’ve bought you coffee. Ugh. Why didn’t I think of that? I love that my Target has a Starbucks (South Plainfield, NJ). And today’s barista made my Cinnamon Dolce Latte perfect. I digress. Maria… next time I’m in Target I will seek you out and buy you coffee. You deserve it. Thank you for all that you do. You’re awesome.

 

Katie

 

Ps. Thanks to Maria’s restocking. I scored this cute tunic.

Sonia Kashuk® Yellow Alluriana Eau de Toilette – #TargetBeauty

14647286_201310091613

 

I love Target! I could spend hours there especially in the beauty aisle. They literally have everything. I also love a citrus fragrance. Especially in the morning. It wakes me up and helps me start the day with a bang.

So when I was invited to try out the new Sonia Kashuk perfume in Yellow Alluriana as part of #TargetBeauty I was thrilled.

This perfume spray lasts all day which I love. So often I put perfume on and an hour or two later the scent disappears. When I first sprayed the fragrance I noticed a strong grapefruit scent right away which I loved. As the day progressed I felt that it had a hint of grapefruit but smelled a little more flowery. This fragrance also is available as a shower gel, lotion, cream and body butter. Perfect if you like to layer your fragrances.

Have you tried the new Sonia Kashuk line yet? If so share your experiences here. I’d love to hear from you.

New Hair Styling Tools with Personality!

 

I’m a Leo and we are known for our manes. Which is why I was thrilled when Revlon contacted me about their Limited Edition 1875 tourmaline dryer and 1” Nano Ceramic® Ionic® Straightener. Like many, I blow dry my hair every single day so a good blow dryer is key in my books. I’m an occasional straightener girl. I have naturally pretty straight hair, but I like using a straightener to help with flyaways and to just get a smoother look.

 

For those who seek for a higher sense of fashion in every aspect of their daily preparation, Revlon hair tools have the latest features that allow you to get your style…in style.

 

The Revlon Limited Edition line consists of a dryer, straightener and tapered iron that comes in two powerful looks: a ribbon of magnifying color, and strut stopping snake print. These tools are equipped with the ultimate performance that will not disappoint.
