First off, I do know how to write in paragraphs, but something is wrong with the coding on my website. Hopefully I can have this fixed fast! Can you all believe that Christmas Eve is one month from today! YIKES, is all I have to say!!! I don’t know how many of you shop online, but for me, it’s my favorite way during the holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I love to go into the stores to get into the Christmas Spirit, but I don’t like the crowds and lines. When I do go, it’s usually at the beginning of the week and early in the day. I just find that shopping online is a no stress way to do it.

Oh joy!…Black Friday happens this week. Do you know why it’s called Black Friday? The term originated in Philadelphia by the Police Department. They coined the phrase to describe the mayhem surrounding pedestrian and auto traffic the day after Thanksgiving. Makes perfect sense to me! I do not partake in it anymore, it’s too stressful. That’s why I would rather get out my computer and go to town in the comfort of my own home.

So, retailers are already giving discounts for Black Friday. I wanted to share some of those with you. If you are like me, it’s buy one for me and one for whomever!

Hope this gives you a little bit of a starting point, or some help on sales. Wishing you a great start to a “thank-filled” week!

As always, thank you for reading

I know you all noticed that when my hair started growing back, I started wearing headbands. I thought they made me look a little more feminine when the wig first came off.  Now I wear them so I don’t look like I have “old lady” hair (which I do if I don’t wear one!). I was so excited when a company called BANDED reached out to me! These headbands are beautiful, and they have a gazillion patterns to choose from.


BANDED headbands come in three styles…original, skinny and wide . They are super comfortable and, because of a velvet backing, will not slip ( key for me and my little pea head!!!). They also will adjust to any head shape and size (little girl’s can wear them too!).


What I love most about these headbands, is that BANDED headbands partnered with Amazima Ministries and are helping children in Uganda. Each of the headbands or tie packs purchased will provide three meals. Over 875,000 meals have been provided!!! So, if you buy one headband, you are buying three meals for a child, and looking good at the same time!!!


I am giving a headband away like the one I am wearing above thanks to BANDED (style is called Bronze Party on their website). Hit the link below to register for the drawing.

 Have a great weekend everyone!!!
