The Shopping Channel : $200 Giveaway!

Must buy all the things!  Oh my goodness do you remember back in September I gave you the heads up that the Shopping Channel had changed?  Yup!  It’s revitalized, renewed and so easy to shop at!  It carry’s so many of my favourite brands, and full on confession time; every single time I hop on their site to go shopping for someone else, I end up buying a little something fabulous for me!

As it’s crunch time for us procrastinators, I just did some more holiday shopping last night!  Want to see what I picked up!  Of course you do, just don’t tell my family K?

For the tween in the house, this super cool and new product by Ciate. 



First you paint on the strawberry pink colour, then top off with the pearlescent beads.  Love!  At $25.00 for the set, it will be hours of entertainment and provide the coolest manicure in the burbs.




The teen was easy!  She needed a lap top sleeve/case to tote her computer around.  This bright coloured Neoprene MacBook Pro Sleeve at $34.99 fit the bill perfectly!  Products the laptop and is pretty too!

For the SassyHubby I placed a quick order for these soft and luxuriously plush throws.  Now he may be too macho to tell you he likes a good blanket, but he’s not too big of a man to tell you he is sick of me stealing the one I gave him last year, so I kind of owe him a new one.  Besides at only $49.96 for two, we can each have one!


The Shopping Channel even has items for your pet! 

I’m thinking about this cute package of toys for my cat!


I was doing do well shopping for my family, browsing for my friends

…and then I saw this:


Um hello!  It’s a Heys Handbags Small Soho Satchel marked down to $126.66!  Threw that baby in my cart and checked out! Don’t judge.  Santa has to get his presents for me from somewhere!  Isn’t she pretty?  Now I just need a trip to take her on!

Does your Santa need a little help?  Do you just need a little last minute inspiration?  The lovely people at The Shopping Channel are helping me to play Santa this year!  One luck reader of How To Survive Life In The Suburbs will have the chance to win a $200.00 gift card to do some shopping of their very own!  Giveaway runs until December 23rd, open to Canadians only and we do NOT guarantee delivery of this prize before Christmas.  Please enter using the Rafflecopter form below.
