My Cyber Monday Shopping Guide


This scene from Pretty Woman is what I silently say to myself as I purchase the majority of items online now. Because, rude salespeople? Who has time for that?

Ok, so how was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Did you get a lot of turkey and love and hugs from friends? Because that’s what it’s all about. I spent the entire vacation reorganizing my closet, office and apartment. Things are much cleaner but I’m somehow more tired than I was when I started. But due to all that hustling, I’m probably a bit closer to my goal jeans, so my roasted chicken with sweet potatoes and caramelized onions wasn’t too great of a sin.

So, as I was saying, I can get behind Cyber Monday: the only things that get punched are the keys on your respective electronic devices, and it’s survival of the swiftest. While I work on finishing up the holiday gift guides, you guys get busy on these amazing steals and deals from the following retailers:
