It’s been a while since we did an On the Loose post. Not that we haven’t done any shopping. On the contrary, I think I have reached my [self-imposed] quota for 2011. Now, before you play the world’s smallest violins for me, 2012 is just a few days away. I’ll be resetting my shopping count to zero very soon!
Ever since B told me about Ideeli, it’s become a habit of mine to check out the site’s featured sales before doing anything in my to-do list. Quite honestly, I’ve actually signed up to various sites for sample sales, but it’s Ideeli that really got me hooked. It must be the layout or the easy navigation that had me. After all, shopping should not be a chore.
I’ve purchased a number of pairs of shoes from Ideeli in the course of just two months (do NOT tell my husband!); so when the Christmas air started to seep in, I knew exactly where I could score amazing gifts that will show loved ones how much thought we put in on their presents (without having to pay full price).
Here are some of the gifts we sent out:
DIESEL Unisex Snowtime Snowball
for Captain Awesome
Dollhouse V-neck Sweater Dress
for Little HRH
UMA ENTERPRISES INC. Wood and Metal Wine Holder
for Um’s Aunt
(We spent Christmas Eve at Um’s Aunt’s house and this was a perfect fit!)
for Um’s Uncle and Wife
(I was so tempted to keep this for myself and get them something else, but Um brought me back to my senses. LOL)
Okay. I tried. I really, really tried. But Ideeli really makes it hard for me not to buy anything for myself. So, I got these Diane von Furstenberg sunnies for me. Hey, I haven’t bought a pair since early 2010. So, I’m due, right?

Enjoy the rest of the holidays, everyone! I wish you all a Happy New Year. BTW, what are your resolutions?
