It’s been quite a year. Some big changes have led to some AMAZING new opportunities but the one constant has been this place – PRBlonde.com. Now without getting all Taylor Swift acceptance speech on you… I thought this Christmas I would spread the cheer a little bit farther especially to those I treasure most – YOU ALL! After all it is the season of giving – isn’t it?
So whether you are looking for the perfect gift or want to indulge a bit for yourself – I’ll help (I’m good at that!) Today and for the next 4 weeks leading up to my favorite holiday of the year – you can score some sweet gifts and today we are kicking it off with one of my fellow, bubbly blonde cohorts – Danielle of Shop Dandy. If you haven’t met this girl already this ones whimsy may as well make her my sister from another mister. With adorable gifts that are just the right amount of “class & sass” – you can enter to win a $45 dollar gift card to her adorable boutique SHOP DANDY! So go ahead indulge in a little something for yourself or better yet – spread the love to friends and family. Check it out:
These gifts couldn’t be any more perfect for PR Girls like us – especially this pillow cover and this mug (hint – a perfect co-worker gift!) All you have do is enter via Rafflecopter below – and one will win a $45 gift card to Shop Dandy!
I can’t thank you all enough for coming back everyday, tweeting along with me when I have decided to date my TV on Monday nights and especially the reader e-mails (those are my favorite!).
The winner will be announced ahead of next Friday’s Giveaway!
Mom and I did a little shopping for PRB Dad/Bro this weekend but of course shopping with Mom always comes some window shopping and hints for her! My mom is my best friend (cheesy – I know!) so this time of year I always do look for something special that will be truly the perfect gift! I mean after all she’s Superwoman!
PRBMom & I have always made “girls weekends” a point – spending time in NYC, Austin and beaching in the Bahamas – so a Henri Bendel passport cover with tickets or itinerary for our next trip would be perfect. Jetsetter is running some great deals right now – umm PARIS! She’s also a teacher but absolutely a woman on the go with PRBDad so day/night style is important and these Flex pumps from Michael Kors would be a pratical/stylish investment. When she’s had enough of those little tikes – a Drybar ‘floater’ would be just the ticket!

NEED A GIFT – SHOP THE POST: (A few other surprises in there for Mom!)
If you are anything like me you had some turkey, couldn’t resist your aunt’s sweet potatoes and ate some questionable yet really tasty stuffing last week. Friday morning rolled around and then again so did you for that matter – feeling a little more “obtuse” than normal.
On top of all of that – there are Christmas parties piling up, another holiday less than 25 days away, you just bought a killer NYE dress/outfit that you need to fit into and also renew your vow to both living with new intentions and crafting that new 2014 mind/body balance. OYE!
“But it’s the Holiday’s!” – Trust me that’s an excuse I have used before. However this year instead of starting off January 1 round and proud – I’m getting a jump start! The 25 days of FITmas dedicates you to making better choices and working to set 2014 off in the right direction. It’s not a program, no sign-up required, no crazy app to track (unless that helps you!) just a commitment to yourself that you are going to feel and look better than the Swarovski time square ball by the time it drops!
After talking with a few friends - we have all committed to keeping each other honest, while platters circulate around the room, confections waft the kitchen and sitting inside because it’s “too cold” is just not an option. Jump start FITmas! 25 days – one commitment, one day at a time. Pinterest is always a great resource to get started – you can also kick start with a three day juice cleanse – its a great way to flush away thanksgiving and start off on a new foot.
Are you going to commit? COME ON! Do it! Tweet it and we can kick some New Years A$$ together!
This is it! You’re ready – and if you are anything like me you have scouted out a few wishlist items for today’s cyber Monday sales. Let’s face it – are we really going to get much done today? Sure dangle a gorgeous pair of TOPSHOP booties (20% off today) in front of me or a bag to die for and let’s see how much I get done.
Check out my favorite picks and codes that will save you a bunch today and get you started on some Holiday shopping just in time to ship, wrap and stash – after all were down to the 25 days of Christmas!
