I wanted to drop a quick note to let you know a few things I forgot to mention in my last post.
1. Dean Davidson has been kind enough to offer a 20% discount code to my friends.
I’ve mentioned before (several times!), how much I love Dean’s jewelry.
I wear pieces from his various collections at least 3-4 times each week.
The new discount code is: DDWelcome20
I think you’re supposed to click on the above (blue) link to get the discount?
(I’m afraid to even look myself because I have such a weakness for his jewelry!)
2. I bought a hula hoop yesterday.
(That’s a sentence I never thought I’d write!)
My yoga teacher is really into hula hooping dance as a form of exercise.
I’ll be honest and admit I did not realize hula hooping and/or hula hooping dance was a “thing.”
But, I’ve talked with several friends this week who ALL have hula hoops.
Why didn’t any of these people ever mention it until I brought it up?
I guess I’ve been too busy with surgeries and recoveries to keep up with such things.
Anyway, I’m going to take a hula hooping beginners workshop on August 5th if any of my OC friends are interested in joining me.
(Leave me a comment or send me an email if you’re interested in attending and I’ll get back to you with details.)
I’ve heard the workshops are LOTS of fun and filled with laughter.
Once my hoop arrives I’ll begin re-teaching myself how to hula hoop at home.
I don’t think I’ve used a hula hoop since I was about eight years old.
I won’t be able to do the arm hooping stuff, but I should be able to do most of the rest-of-the-body hula hooping.
By the way, if you live in Southern California and would like to go to the workshop you do not have to buy your own hoop first –
Hoops are provided.
Also, hula hooping is a great core workout and can burn approximately 400 calories in a half hour.
3. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins today/tomorrow – depending on when I get this published.
(The sale begins the 21st!)
I’m a big Nordstrom fan because I absolutely hate to shop and they make it about as easy and painless as it can be.
Normally a department store sale is not something I would even bother to mention.
However, several of you mentioned you’d be interested in Paul Green shoes if only they weren’t so damn expensive.
And they ARE expensive.

I was “invited” to the Nordstrom pre-sale and was made aware some Paul Green shoes will be on sale during the Anniversary Sale.
I just wanted to give you a heads up in case you were one of the people/readers who had put them on your wish list.
Many of the Nordstrom sale items sell out either during the pre-sale or during the first 24 hours of the full/public sale.
If Paul Green shoes are something you REALLY want – you’ve now got a head start on the crowds.
I’ll be back next week ….
