A Little This, A Little That...

Still Love This...I originally posted it here back in October 2010.

And This...

Absolutely Stunning...

This Too...

Yes Please!!! 

And this, as well!

As I'm sure most of you already know, J.Crew is offering an Extra 30% off Final Sale & Promo-Priced items with code OURTREAT until 10.28.12. Did you get anything? I did. I ordered the Martina leopard wedges, which I have been eyeing since their debut on the J.Crew website many months ago. They are the same pattern as the Safari Juliets from a few years ago, that sadly did not work out for me, plus they were not final sale. The wedges arrived, and while I think they are lovely, they are unfortunately too small and will be going sad. I hope some of you have had better luck with the sale!

Along with the Extra 30% off, J.Crew added new Promo-priced items for both the Women and Men this week. You can see the updated lists here and here, respectively. There were also several Collection pieces marked down, and I have compiled a list of those too. You can see it here.

My journey to be 'A Better Me' is your journey going? I am still trying to face the physical changes that are happening to my body as I get older with a positive attitude, although I will admit that some days are definitely better than others. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been focusing on eating a very healthy diet, filled with lots of protein, fresh fruit, veggies, and whole grains. I also started using the website FitDay again (I used it for awhile a couple years ago), to track my daily food and calorie intake. I especially like the charts and graphs that tell you just what percent of protein, fat, and carbs you ate for the day, as well as your vitamin intake (or lack there of). It is free to sign up, and easy to get started, too! :)

That's it for now...

So what have you been up to this week? Do you have any special plans for the weekend? Please do share...I always love to hear from you! :)

J.Crew: New Collection Pieces Added To The Sale Section Today Plus An Extra 30% Off - OURTREAT

Happy Thursday! I hope your week is going well so far! :) I noticed several new Collection pieces added to the Final Sale section at J.Crew, and wanted to share them with you, especially since the OURTREAT code for an Extra 30% off is still in effect until 10.28.12. For those of you interested in J.Crew Collection items (and do not mind a final sale purchase), this is an ideal time to pick them up.

*Collection silk popover in photo floral

Other noteworthy Collection Pieces already on sale...

**There were also several new Promo-Priced items for both the Women and Men added this week (and they are not Final Sale). You can see those lists here and here, respectively.

Have a lovely day, and Happy Shopping! :)

J.Crew: New Promo-Priced Items & Markdowns Today Plus An Extra 30% Off - OURTREAT

J.Crew is offering an extra 30% off Final Sale items with code OURTREAT at checkout until 10.28.12...yay for the extra % off, but BOO for Final Sale! Thankfully, the Promo-Priced Items also receive the 30% discount but are NOT Final Sale...gotta love that! J.Crew has also done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items this week...a lot of new items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price (now making them final sale if noted as such at checkout). I have updated the Women's list, and you can see the Men's Updated list here.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Promo-priced items, they are select Regular-price pieces that J.Crew marks down to a 'Promotional Price' for a short amount of time. These items are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.

The promo-prices are usually in effect for a week or two (sometimes longer), then they either go back up to full-price or move on into Final Sale. I have noted the majority of the Women's Promo-priced items currently available on the J.Crew website, as well as the items that were previously on promo, but have been marked down (please note that the items ending in $.99 are the ones that have been marked down further from Promo-price and many are now Final Sale):
