Just For A Laugh

It is official as the nice man delivers yet another package to my house–I am married to the online shopping lady except she is a man. A man who never liked shopping before. As a woman of a certain age I have seen my hubby of many years have many habits, and this one is one that I could never imagined he would have.

When he had to fill out forms and send them in he wouldn’t order a lot–it took time.  The kids and I would get a few crazy gifts, you know the kind that don’t look anything like the picture. The kind that are supposed to be just as good as the nationally known product.

But lo and behold he is now kind of sort of computer literate–he discovered the internet.  We finally got him to stop opening all of the email he receives, and printing off all of the crazy information that is out there.  He now shops.

You know that lady that buys the purse in all 16 colors, 13 sizes and 14 materials all of which are fake–that’s him.  Need something to help you with a flat tire, ward off attackers, look like a diamond, ruby and/or emerald, whiten your teeth, stretch your shoes, shrink your shoes, kill mosquitoes, and so much more?  We have it.

The delivery people and the postal service know us.  In fact I’ve told them to stop coming to my house.  I run to the door as soon as they ring the bell because there is no need to sign for it, they just ring, drop and go.

The good news is that I’m going to have a great garage sale.  Remember “thisisyourbestyear“. What’s one man’s junk is another one’s treasure–yeah right.

Holiday Success!

Glam Galore’s Ms. Navie Hughes, the creative force behind Holiday Bazaar 2014 received an early Christmas present in the form of a successful endeavor.  The Holiday Bazaar allowed local business entrepreneurs to showcase their products and services all in one convenient location made possible by the creative, entrepreneurial mind of Navie Hughes.

The bazaar resembled your finest shopping mall with music, speakers and door prizes.  The bazaar had everything from clothing, to jewelry, health products, hair care products, beauty products, massages, fitness information and DVD’s and so much more.  It seemed that no one left empty-handed.

In addition to shopping, the customers and vendors were able to make donations to a worthy cause.  Toys were donated to Jonathan’s PlaceJonathan’s Place strives to provide a safe place for children who have been abused, abandoned or neglected. You can learn more about Jonathan’s Place at: http://www.jpkids.org/.

In case you missed this shopping experience, Ms. Hughes will host another event in the spring.  Take a look at the sites of Holiday Bazaar 2014 below. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

Shopping For A Cause

As a woman of a certain age, I like gifts that are unique.  Something that you probably won’t find in your local mall.  I also like  helping a good cause. If you are in and around North Texas on Saturday, November 15 you will have an opportunity to do both. The toys donated with be given to Jonathan’s Place (www.jpkids.org).

Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

Happy Shopping!
