Vivid Boxing Day

Vivid on 4th had an awesome boxing day sale on winter jackets. Furry fleecy jackets were 50% off. Their everyday wear was also on sale at up to 50% off.

Aqua Vie En Rose Boxing Day

If you are planning to go somewhere tropical in the next while or want to stock up on some summer wear early, Aqua Vie En Rose is having a great boxing day sale. I bought a bucket hat for $1.99, select swimsuit tops and bottoms were like $15.00 each and they were actually decent looking.

Lululemon Boxing Day

Lululemon boxing day wasn't bad, it all depends on what you are looking for. Things weren't that cheap, but some discount is better than nothing at all. I have to say the discounts were better than the ones you get at their warehouse.

Sale items were sorted out by size, so you were easily able to go in there and try what you want and grab and go.

The sale is still on so get there as soon as possible.

Tired of buying stuff for friends, family, and colleagues at Christmas?

If yes, try making stuff. People love homemade stuff. It adds a real nice touch to things and it makes Christmas time less expensive.

Gumdrops Rubber Boots Rock

I never thought rubber boots could come into fashion and turn out looking stylish, but here they are Gumdrops on 4th avenue. The boots are definitely waterproof and dirt proof. I trampled through a pumpkin patch with them (speaking of they were white boots) and all I did was wash them off with water and voila it was back to looking new.

Guys, a great Christmas gift idea for your girlfriend :)
