Ok so a friend of mine told me that I had to try out Netflix. I was resistant because we had already gotten that $10 for a month of how ever many movies you wanted at Blockbuster. But the other night when I was trying to watch something online and it wasn't working I caved and signed up. The first months is free and you can cancel at any time within that month to not get charged for the next (when you roll into the next month). They didn't have the show that I was looking for (Glee) but they have heaps of other movies and shows and so far it's looking pretty good! Even if we just do it for the free month. I think they say it's only $7.99 a month after that. I feel like there should be some sort of catch but as of yet I haven't found anything! Let me know what you think and if you like it or not!

So I went in to Bijou just to check out some pricing and to look at diamond stud earrings (it’s amazing the range of pricing that is out there!). I saw this display and ad for a giveaway.
I grabbed a card because I was running late for another appointment but here’s how it works
Add them on facebook
Wrote 20 works or 100 (depending on what card you get from them) or less on why you should get the ring
- Get lots of people to comment on your write up, or like it (the person with the best write up and most comments and ‘likes’ wins)
I put one in for my mom because well, she deserves it! If you’re interested go nuts, write something up, but if you don’t care I’d love it if you clicked over there (here’s the link!) and ‘liked’ my write up! My mom totally deserves something like this and it would be huge if you got it. I know I can’t buy her a $6500 diamond ring but I would love to be able to get her one!!

I'm telling you Dollarama is the place to go for a lot of Christmas decor. They have a lot of great, quality items (and of course the really cheap "going to break in a couple of days" items too) for a whole lot less. I shop around a lot and I have found the same thing in Dollarama countless times for of course a fraction of the price. I don't love that it's all (or most) Made in China but if you're on a budget that's just the way it goes sometimes!
Other tips for you:
- If you don't need the decor right away wait until boxing day and stock up for next year!
- Go thrifting or check out bargain stores
- Check into some different DIY ideas and get creative and make your own!
