Boxing day sales

by Shalice Noel

We’re staying in today, picking interior paint colors for the new house, cleaning pine needles from our dead tree, and texting family members. How’s your boxing day going? Some retailers are boasting 70% off! I linked some of my favorites below:

eBay Can’t Miss Monday

by Shalice Noel

We’d all agree, this year is not a conventional one. Who knew that we’d all be working and schooling at home simultaneously? You can only guess what is top of our wish list this year? You guessed it. Noise canceling headphones. It has been challenging to say the least, to concentrate on work when the kids are asking you where their reading books are, can you cut an apple, and can they eat their Christmas cookies. Distractions aplenty. Nod if you agree.

Enter the noise canceling headphones!! A mom’s best friend. Well, headphones, and coffee and a chair outside quiet alone. A girl can dream right?

Reid wanted ear buds for his garage workouts, so I went with the best. Bose! The sound quality is unparalleled so I felt like it was worth the splurge, it came with a limited time warranty, was certified refurbished and was competitively priced.

What are you waiting for? Shop now to get the gifts here on time. I rounded some additional gift ideas below.

November 2, means its 53 days till Christmas day, Can you believe it? While it may seem too early to shop Christmas, you should! Things will sell out faster this year due to more people shopping online than years past. I rounded up some favorites from liquid collagen, to UGG wedge boots, to essential hair ties, comfy pj’s that are cute enough to wear to the coffee shop with a trench or wool coat, clean beauty lip jellies, and Nest Christmas candle to get you in the spirit.

Boxing Day

by Shalice Noel

Love this time of year when the tree is up, kids are still playing with their Legos and Reid and I have just enough peace and quiet for a coffee on the patio.

Boxing Day is traditionally celebrated by the servants of the house who have the day off and can go home on ‘Boxing Day’ and give Christmas boxes to their families. We American’s celebrate Boxing Day as a day off for some (like Reid) and a day to make returns. We will spend it playing checkers, working, taking a walk, and eating lots of leftover breakfast casserole.

If you haven’t heard, lululemon is having a huge sale and Nordstrom is having their half yearly sale, so if you have a gift card or want to get what you REALLY wanted, see my picks below:

I’m obsessed with matching family pajamas. These are awesome because they are quality, come in all sizes (minus Levi) and warm for chilly nights! Now is the time to get them, they’re on sale and just before December comes around. Our tradition the day after Thanksgiving is to get our tree (usually a real one), and bring it home to decorate. For dinner, we have french onion soup, fresh bread, and hot chocolate. We settled for store bought bread and ended the night with “It’s a Wonderful Life.‘ I feel truly blessed. It IS a wonderful life! I hope the kids remember these traditions though small for many years to come.

What’s your tradition? I’d love to hear.

Christmas pajamas has always been a tradition in my family so I’m super excited to continue it with my own family. Cue the AWE and YAY. I’m ready to heat up the oven for cinnamon rolls, roll out the gifts (hidden under my bed all year) and drink some yule tide cheer. Below are some of my favorite, kid approved, mom adored jammies for that special morning as a family.

For my girls, they love anything red or pink and SOFT

My boys on the other hand, are wearing pants with no shirt (apparently that’s cool because daddy sleeps without a shirt). Either way, if its chilly, they will wear a two piece and these are mommy approved:

Mom’s pj’s are soft and classic


Which are your favorite?

1. CLASSIC SOREL – perfect for 4 days in a cabin in BIG BEAR. I also have these. 2. POMPOM so cheap and makes a great gift! Love it on my black weekender.

3. KNIT HAT so cute with a puffer vest and blue or black jeans. 4. FAUX FUR THROW perfect for your couch or the end of the bed. So SOFT!

5. VEST This chestnut fur looks so good with black. I got a 6US (fits like a 2/4) I also love this coat  6. SLIPPER perfect for chilly mornings! 7. FUR SLIDES I can these my ‘house shoes, ‘ a comfy upgrade that’s cute.

While we all know the perfect gift isn’t wrapped under the tree, but the people who sit across from us at the dinner table and love us despite all. It is however, a kind gesture to find that little special gift to say, “I love and appreciate you!’ I asked each of our four children (and hubby), what little things they would like to see under the tree, with some help from Moi. Note, a lot of the items are on sale now. What are your favorites?
