Me vs. evil winter virus. I’m finally winning (after about 5 days of battle)! The viruses are really bad this year. All sorts of fevers, chills and night sweats (those are the worst) on top of the regular URI stuff. I spent my thanksgiving weekend alone, mostly sleeping. I felt like I was hit by a bus. Fortunately, or unfortunately, this week is my planned vacation. I’ll apparently spend it recovering.
While being only half-alive did keep me from going to any in-store sales, it didn’t stop me from turning on my pc every 4-6 hours (about the time my meds wore off) to browse the online sales stuff. I’ve received a few items so far. Some are keepers, some will go back without a second thought! I’ll share the good ones…
My other go-to holiday retailer is Yoox.com. Yoox offers designer items at deeply discounted prices (items that make it to the end-of-season sales are eventually are 80% off). The items are typically a season or so old, which isn’t a big deal to me. I typically shop for high quality, classic items (black pants, cashmere sweaters, etc). I have a few pairs of black wool pants on there way right now! They’re offering an extra 25% off today, and I’m debating trying out a few new sweaters (I’m thinking this toasty Golden Goose turtleneck or something similarly cozy)… I can always return them when I realize I’ve overspent. Or step up my eBay selling!
I hope you had a good (perhaps long?) weekend! Make sure you take care of yourself and stay healthy 🙂
