Purse Size Perfume for Valentines Day

Hi Beautiful People!

~~Love is in the aire~~

It is the morning before Valentines Day and I assume all of my readers are happily awaiting tomorrow with a lovely gift(s) for their sweetie. My hubby and I lovingly celebrate Valentines Day because it is also the anniversary of the first time we hung out. I had a party for single people and he came over to help me cook…it is a true love story. :-) But, I digress.

I am writing this post specifically for those who are desperately seeking a last-minute (affordable) gift for their sweetie (guys maybe?).  My suggestion is a ‘purse size’ perfume. My particular favorite is Pleasures by Estee Lauder and you can buy an 0.5 oz. of Eau de Parfume for only $30.

Now, I can understand the reluctance to buy the smallest bottle of perfume for your honey as you don’t want to risk looking cheap. There is a method to my madness. Perfume will go stale if it sits for too long…so in actuality you don’t want a large bottle. A small bottle that is used quickly is better because it won’t have time to go stale.

Often, the perfume counters do not put the purse size on display because they want you to purchase the huge bottle. Often, the purse size is available, it is just hidden away somewhere.

Happy Valentines Day!




No more double coupon days at JCPenney?!?!?

Hi Beautiful People!

As we all know, I heart me some JCPenney! Whether I am shopping for myself, my nephew (he LOVES South Pole) or my very TALL husband I can always find what I need at a great price. However, lately I believe they have become a wee bit gimmicky. It became too many paper coupons (15% off ) to cut out from mailers and bring in. I was pretty over it and apparently I was not the only one.

Just recently, JCPenney announced a new marketing strategy…they will have a three-tiered pricing schedule complete with color coding. The everyday price will be red, white will be month-long values (likely seasonal items), and blue will be best values. I am assuming the best values will be similar to clearance. The hitch is the blue “best value” prices will only be avail on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month.

I am really interested to see how this pans out. I plan on heading over to the JCPenney soon to check it out…maybe on a Friday? I predict it will be bedlam at JCPenney on the 1st and 3rd Fridays.

What do you think? Will you be heading over to JCPenney on the 1st and 3rd Fridays?
