cyber monday!

Happy Cyber Monday friends!

It was super hard to get up this morning and ya know why?? FLANNEL SHEETS! These will kill you! They are so warm and snugly, it's impossible to roll out of bed. Throw a couple of pugs in the mix and you're doomed to over-sleep.

If you're on Weight Watchers, did you see their new revamped plan?

"Essentially we are retiring the Points plan — you can't mix the new system with the old one." The patent-pending formula to calculate the new PointsPlus values is based on the amount of protein, fiber, carbohydrates and fat in foods, Miller-Kovach says. The formula takes into account that protein and fiber are important for fullness and warding off hunger. It also factors in how hard the body has to work to process food into energy, she says. The body has to work harder to use protein and fiber than fat and carbohydrates."

So there ya go. Not for me, but this is awesome news if you're a ww member.

Have a great cyber Monday. Feel free to leave a comment bragging about the amazing deals you got today.

The big Christmas tree lighting ceremony {aka Christmas in Rockefeller Center} happens tomorrow night at 7pm. I can't believe Christmas is HERE.

let's go shopping

Happy Saturday!

I got up early, had breakfast and then met Danielle for an 9am spin class. After class, we met up with Angela at Starbs. Ang and I have been dying to try a peppermint mocha. For the past 3 weeks, this stupid drink has been the bain of our existence. Today was the day we tasted it, and omg, it was definitely worth the calories. Wowzas. Christmas-ey goodness in my mouth. I'll be going back for another tonight this week.

Rewind to yesterday.

Before we started decorating, I had to make an impromptu trip over to Target. Stu says to me "Black Friday at Target?". My response? "We can do it babe, we'll power through." To be honest with you, Targs wasn't all that bad. Guess our expectations were too high. The toy and electronic areas were the most packed, everywhere else in the store was pretty calm. I made a bee line over to the Christmas section, but my attention was quickly diverted when we approached the candy and snack area.

Oh yes, peppermint oreos. 140 calories for 2. I'll pass.

My favorite. Candy cane tootsie pops. I always have extras in my purse. Ya know, just in case.

IMG_2715
We're making progress.

IMG_2716
I always make sure I  have "emergency gifts. These cookie mixes are perfect. In the cart they go.

IMG_2717
Why not make it 11 creamers? Don't judge.

IMG_2718
And we're done. Mission accomplished.

Last night our town held it's official Christmas tree lighting. There were Christmas carolers, hot chocolate and of course Santa. He arrived on top of a fire truck. Kids everywhere were going nuts. It was adorable. I swear, this was a scene strait out of a Lifetime. Phoebe and Miles were a huge hit with all the kiddos. Kinda made me want one or two little one's of my own. After the festivities died down, we went to dinner and then to the movies. We saw "Unstoppable." Not exactly the greatest movie to see if you commute in on a train every day, haha. It was really good. We like it a lot.

We're relaxing now, and then it's off to KOP for some Christmas shopping. Speaking of the KOP mall, did you know they have an iphone app?? YES!! Just download it, it's free {& fabulous.}

Hope you're having a great weekend.

i've got candy corn in my pocket

Monday funday!

You know it's just a matter of weeks before stores like Homegoods and Target start stocking up their shelves with Halloween crap. Hello, next month is September!!! Sweater weather is right around the corner. Omg, that means I can break out my uggs soon! Over the weekend, while we were in Franklin Lakes, Danielle and I stopped into Bath & Body Works. How could we not, it was next door to Posche. I was on a mission to find the "Leaves" scented soap. Unfortunately they didn't have it. Wahhhh. The girl told me she thinks it's not coming back this season either :0( That's the bad news. The good news is that we found the new Halloween scented hand sanitizers!!! I scooped up 9! Yes, 9 glorious, yummy flavors. I bought multiples of the candy corn, marshmallow and licorice. YUMMMM!! I haven't smelled something so good since the twisted peppermint days.

taking a break

Happy Friday!!!

I'm taking a few days off from blogging. Spending the weekend in CT visiting family and friends. Can you believe I haven't seen my mom since Christmas?? Shameful.

I'll be back Sunday night with a recap. Until then, here's a vlog :0)

Have an AMAZING weekend!

They're killin' this cover of "W". Hot.

Aren't unexpected surprises the best? THANK YOU RAPID LASH!!!

Four tubes of Rapid Lash were given to me, but right off the bat, I gave one to my friend Sara Lee because she wants long luscious lashes like me. I can't wait for her to see the results. 

I have 3 tubes of this amazing stuff left. Would you like one??

I'll keep this contest open until Monday, March 8th. Email me OR tweet me (lisapaige1) and I'll pick 3 random names. Check back on March 8th. to see if I pick YOU. Good luck.

****Do NOT list your name under the "comments" section of this post. EMAIL or Tweet only!!!!

In the meantime, if you can't wait, treat yourself to a tube of Rapid Lash. I can't get over how LONG my lashes are. For the first time EVER, I'm able to apply mascara and NOT curl my lashes. They are out of control, crazy long. I LOVE THEM!!!!

I have a what??????

Got my blood work results back and they showed that my TSH level is low which means that I do in fact have a suppressed thyroid. Well this is just awesome. Next step is to see an endocrinologist. I have no idea what a suppressed thyroid is or what it even means. Better start googling. I'm a walking disaster. Despite my cold, and now suppressed thyroid, I'm still going to spin tonight :0)

Happy Friday all!

close up

Per request, here is a pic of my ring. Sorry it's blurry. Apparently, it over-shadowed my "eggnog-tastic" entry from yesterday, haha. I still stand by my eggnog misto. Getting another one later today :0)

IMG_0526

Okay, back to the ring. I could not have asked for a more beautiful set. It was made and designed by my good friend Joe Bucci of Bucci Jewelers. I carry a stack of his business cards with me (no joke), and when someone makes a comment on my ring, I whip out Joe's business card. He's AMAZING and can design anything you want. I basically went in with an idea, he sketched it up, I loved it, he made it, LP is happy!! His website is finally almost done. I am so excited, because now YOU can check out his work up close. Wouldn't you love to find a little bling bling under your tree this year?

Go to ilovejoebucci.com and "just browse". You can be sure that as soon as he launches his FULL website, it'll be posted HERE. Don't hesitate to email him if you'd like more info regarding anything fabulous- info@buccijewelers.com or call him at 610.476.1707 How many jewelers do you know give out their personal #?? Not many. Joe's truly one in a million!!

coconut oil is cool

I read in HEALTH (Nov issue), that coconut oil is good for you. YES!!

Researchers found that obese women who dieted, exercised and took a 30 milliliter supplement of coconut oil everyday carved more inches from their wastelines than did women who dieted, exercised and took soybean oil (ewww). Choose the virgin, or unprocessed form of coconut oil. Read all about the fabulous benefits HERE.
