$5 Jersey Scarves - Yes, please! One in every color!

Why have I not seen these before?  I'm a regular Target shopper....  I always make a pass through the accessory department....  Anyway, I games across a few of these scarves earlier this week, mixed in with the other scarves in no particular order - Xhileration Oblong Scarves.   At only $5, I snatched up one of every color I could find - blue, maroon (Go UofChi Maroons), and red (Yeah Westside!).  When I came home and checked out the website, it showed a bunch of other colors, but all were listed as being "sold out online".  Bummer!  I am lusting after the light blue, purple, gray and magenta.  What better way to add a "pop of color" (I am getting soooo tired of that phrase, but it just works here) to an outfit?  And the light weight means they are not too hot in the warmer months of the year.  So if you are out and about and come across any of these in another color - give me a call - I may ask you to pick one up for me - I promise I'll pay you back!

Simply Genius

Simply Genius.  Seriously?  Yes, I know it's just a tortilla chip, but these Longboard Tortilla Chips from Trader Joe's are simply genius.  Want proof?  Stand in front of a mirror and stick out your tongue, then hold up one of the tortilla chips next to it.  See... same shape!  And that is what makes these tortilla chips simply genius.  It fits in your mouth, perfectly.  No charley horses in the cheek from trying to get your mouth around a round tortilla chip.  No pokes in the gum from the triangle variety.  Sturdy enough to hold your favorite chunky salsa and traditional corn taste.  Like I said... simply genius.

Ready (& RED) for Christmas!

Are you tired of the junky Christmas decorations?  Over the snowmen craze?  Looking for something different that an overstuffed Santa with a cute smile?  Then I may have found just what you are looking for.  A couple of years ago, I ordered this Rouge Candleholder from Crate and Barrel, and I was happy to see they had on their website again this year.   The vibrant red glass sits on a sturdy iron base.  It has a strong, modern look, and with a lit candle, casts a rosy glow over the entire room.  Bring it out for Christmas, and leave it out through Valentine's Day if you like.  Or even all year round.
