Desperately Seeking ______________ on Sale...

What are you desperately seeking on sale?

Food Therapy

Good food is as satisfying as a good sale. So from time to time (probably more than that because I'm a foodie and I love to eat), I'll be providing some food therapy. Be forewarned, I'm an adventurous eater with a HUGE sweet tooth. If you're in NYC, I hope you try some of these spots. If you do, LMK what you think. Bon appetit!

Video Reviews

While picture reveals of bags are nice. Video reviews of bags are better! As such, I will endeavor to post as many video reviews of bags as possible. However, I will only be reviewing bags that I like. Life is too short to review bags that I dislike. Plus, at the end of the day, it really is just a matter of personal opinion/taste.

Mr. Max: A Picky Eater?

Mr. Max was given new dog food this week and to my surprise, it turns out that he is a picky eater!  At first, I thought it was a fluke, because it takes a lot of effort to separate the dog food.  But after 2 days, I've realized that it's not a fluke.  See the before and after pictures below:
  • Before: (This is actually Mr. Foo Foo's bowl.  He'll eat anything and everything.)
  • After:  Apparently Mr. Max doesn't like dog food in the shape of cylinders.  The shape of dog bones, however, are okay.  I may start calling Mr. Max, "Mad Max."

Salon With A Sign Of Humor

I walked by Slate Salon a few weeks ago on E 7th St and they had the following sidewalk sign out that I can appreciate (unfortunately) on a personal level (just the side about self-coloring):

Note: I've never been to Slate but I really like their sidewalk sign.


Bed Bath & Beyond Clearance Sale Score: Plushy Throw!

When it comes to winter robes, pajamas and bedding, I focus on the tactile experience of the fabric.  When it's cold outside, I like items that are warm, fuzzy and cozy.  As a result, I am huge sucker for anything made from plushy material.  Usually, I prefer to buy items made from natural fibers (mostly, silk cotton, merino wool, and cashmere).  But I love plushy material so much that in this DISCRETE instance, I'm totally advocating polyester!

My old plushy throw needed to be retired, so I headed to Bed, Bath & Beyond in hopes of finding a new one in the clearance section.   And...I scored!!

My old plushy throw was a plushy blanket but this new plushy throw (Think Mink Down Alternative Throw by Berkshire Blanket) is a like a plushy throw/super-light comforter in one.  I used a 20% off coupon, so the final price was only $15.99!!!  I'm thinking about getting another one just in case Sunshine decides to permanently "borrow" this one.

Note:  I don't see this particular plushy blanket available on BBB's online clearance section, but two other plushy blankets are available:
  • Indulgence Throws by Berkshire Blanket for $14.99
  • Anywhere Blanket from Berkshire Blanket for $19.99
