Sample Sale Sites

Every day, I am consistently checking a few sample sale sites for great deals. Some of them have women, men, home, and even kid sections. They have some designer items but usually for more than 50% off. There are new sales daily so you get to keep looking back to see if there is anything new that interests you. I am always looking for more sales (let me know if I'm missing any good ones!) - Here are my favorites so far:

1. Rue La La:
Boutiques Include - 
Women | Men | Living | Travel | Kids | Gifts | Today's Fix |
This one is nice because it offers one time shipping for the whole month.

2. HauteLook
Events Include - Women | Men | Kids | Home | Beauty |
A Nordstrom Company.

3. Ideeli
Sales Include - Women | Shoes | Home |

4. Gilt Groupe
Sales Include - Women | Men | Baby & Kids | Home | City | Travel |
Higher pricing than the others - has the higher-end of designer sales.

5. Zulily
Daily Deals Include - | Maternity | Mom | Baby | Kids |
They are not as high quality of items as the other sites, but it is very helpful for maternity and baby clothes that are not too expensive. Sometimes they get the higher brands on. Also, great for baby shower gifts and baby gear!

6. My Habit
Events Include - Women | Men | Children | Home | Designer |
Owned by

7. Jack Threads
Sales Include - | Mens | Clothing | Shoes | Accessories |
This site just has gear for guys. I have used it so many times getting presents for my husband, bro-in-laws, and dad.

Maternity Watercolor Portrait

My incredibly talented neighbor, Annie Biegler Pugmire, painted this watercolor portrait of me for my soon-to-be nursery. She always goes above and beyond! She is incredibly talented and is always sharing the beauty she creates. 

3 weeks left until baby is due!!

Annie, I can't say thank you enough! I love you so much "Hug!"

Nautical Objects Font

I stumbled upon a Nautical Objects Dingbats Font today and had a little fun laying it out. The font is called, "SC By The Sea." 

The font is free for personal use and can be found here.
