Fun Mugs!

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Just discovered these adorable mugs from Japanese company Kinto. They have really neat products, including mugs whose decals go from black to colorful when you pour a hot beverage into them! I think I love the rain drop mug the best, how about you?

Black Friday SALE!

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Here in Montreal, our Thanksgiving has been long past, a whole month. Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 25th 2010) is something that I was unfamiliar with until last year, when I was living in Portland Oregon. In the US, Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season. It is traditionally when shops have great sales to entice holiday shoppers.

It can also be a huge headache to go to the mall that day! SO I am joining the fun and offering a great one day only black Friday sale, and guess what?

You don’t even need to LEAVE THE HOUSE! HEE HAW!

This sale is gonna be so awesome, I’m only going to announce it a week from Friday (tomorrow), in a big announcement right here on my blog!! Stay tuned to get all the details!
