Hello December!

Thursday, December 1, 2016 4:30 AM

Good Thursday morning ladies and welcome December! 

Normally on my Thursday post I would be super enthusiastic about the weekend, but I am so tired and feeling slightly under the weather.  I am already feeling the stresses of the holidays.  Although it is only December 1st my weekends and shopping time has been escaping me. Every weekend from now until Christmas is completely booked. This weekend, I have my dance show. Two rehearsals and two shows.  Next weekend I am teaching dance classes and then off to a birthday party. With football banquets, concerts and holiday parties my schedule is full. AAAH! 

 Sure, I love to go to the malls during the holiday season. Taking in the decor and feeling the hustle and bustle of the crowds, but truth be told, I hate lines and do most of my shopping online.  
I mean we all love a deal, but the idea of black Friday is a living hell for me, no thank you.     
I prefer Cyber Monday.  What's great is most of the Cyber Monday deals last through Christmas. The best coupon tool of the season for me is for sure Ebates. Are you familiar?
Ebates is a website where you register your information online and in addition to hundreds of coupons to thousands of stores you also get a % of cash back! Win, win right? 
Instead of going directly to a website, first go to Ebates, search your favorite stores and you are immediately on your way to savings and cash back. 
Onto my first holiday look. 
I got this skirt at Madewell on sale a while back. I paid $13 for it in store! $13!!
I believe it was a Summer skirt, but it was screaming holiday to me.
