I know I haven’t posted anything for ages, and all kinds of tweets show up on the page that come from some unknown hacker, because Twitter refuses to shut down my hacked account. Anyway, this is me, and I thought I’d share a bargain.

Bonton.com has two coupons you can use in conjunction with each other. APRBDAY is for free s&h at $25, and BLKFRIAPR14 is for up to 25% off (up to means mostly 15%).

I ordered Circulon 16.5″x14″ Roaster with Self Rack + $5 Cash Back By Mail http://www.bonton.com/sc2/shop/home/kitchen/cookware/roasters/circulon-16-5-x14-roaster-with-self-rack-5-cash-back-by-mail_687159.html It came to $8.47 before $5 rebate, and a swag curtain thingy for my bathroom,. They came to $25 and change, so I saved $10 s&h, The roaster has great reviews.

Honestly, I’m not findng anything amazing, that I couldn’t find on any other sale.  Maybe I’m just less interested.  Wait, who am I???

Avon is having sales and free  S&H  on all orders with code cyber13.  Many litle stocking stuffers here.  I’ve been using the Soft & Sensual body wash in the shower, and like it,.  I also like that it hangs.  http://shop.avon.com  This set is a decent deal.  They don’t have Soft and Sensual right now, but I’ll bet this one is good.

I brought this cake Thanksgiving, and don’t know if everyone preferred it to my eggnog cake, but my cousin and I did.  I’m not an icing person, but it is traditionally a layer cake.

Italian Cream Cake
Servings 12

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup or 2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup buttermilk (or a cup of milk with a squeeze of fresh lemon)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F..

Grease and flour 3 (9-inch) round cake pans.  (I use bundt pan and don’t ice)  Hint:  Use Bakers Joy instead of grease & flour.
Sift dry ingredients together and set aside.  (I whisk)

Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating each one well before adding the next.

Add vanilla to buttermilk and mix.

Alternate adding wet and dry dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. Fold in nuts and coconut. Pour batter into prepared cakepans. Bake for 25 minutes.  (About 50 minutes for bundt pan.  Check with toothpick.)

Let cakes cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Remove from the pans to wire racks to cool completely. Frost as desired.

Buzz & Handbag Bargain

I am the Imelda of purses.  I just love handbags.  When ever I get a new one, I leave stuff in the current one, so I can’t get rid of it when I start using my new one.  I’m thinking about going through my tons of handbags and seeing if I can collect enough hidden money to take us out for a nice dinner…………but then, I could donate the bag, and that would make me sad.  Is the expression “An empty purse is the sign of a sick mind”???

Bradsdeals.com has been having some great deals.  Speaking of purses, I’ve never owned a Vera Bradley, but I like the color (discontinued), and the price of this one ($24.50).  Trying to talk myself down.

Buzz & Perfume Bargain

I’ve worn Shalimar since I was a teen.  Actually, it was my ex’s favorite, and I stuck with it after I dumped him.  Lately I’ve been trying out some more up to date fragrances, and I did buy Burberry, but it’s not exactly what I want.  I think I want something vanilla/peachy/amber-esque.  Whatever it is, I’m still looking.  Suggestions?
Anyway, I thought this was a good value, and a way to try a lot of fragrances. (from Bradsdeals.com)

Sephora Fragrance Sampler + Full Size $35

This Deluxe Fragrance Sampler for Her, a $90 value, drops from $50 to $34.99 at Sephora. Plus, it comes with a voucher for a full sized bottle of one of the included fragrances.

I know I haven’t written for a while.  Nothing too exciting to write about.  Don’t want you to forget me though.

I have only been able to take 7 minute hot showers since I moved here.  Washed my tush length hair in shifts.  Finally decided to break down and get a new hot wataer heater.  Simple huh?  I was gong to havae the development put one in for me.  I had a thirty gal (tiny) and wanted a a50.  They ordered it, but it was too tall for the space.  Then they wanted me to take a 38 because a 40 required pipe work and they charge $50 an hour.  I told them to call me in the afternoon and I’d let them know after I talked to Harry.  They never called back.  I googled “plumber+zip code” and got 4 plumbers.  I okayed for them to call me.  Only 2 did.  One said he’d call back wioth a quote since his partnere worked in this development before.  Second called and said he’d be here at 2pm to measure.  First called and wanted twice as much as developmenty asked.  Second didn’t call till 3pm to tell me he could make it but would be here in the morning with a 40 gal tank to install.  My daughter said that’s like showing up for a date naked.  Anyway, he and his coworker showed up and put it in for less than my development wanted, before labor.  Happy me.  Anyway, started a cold water wash and saw steam coming out of washer.  They switched the pipes.  They’ll be back today, I hope.


 I have an Oreck air purifier, and it’s good enough that my bil, who is hyper sensitive to cats, can be here for several hours without a bad reaction.

List Price – $199.99

Buzz & Bargain of the Day

Since my daughter was a small child, I’ve been giving her a holiday ornament every year.  This year I found one I love so much I ordered one for me too.  To me, it kind of celebrates Chanukah, Christmas, and winter in general.
I recently got a sample box from Smashbox.  They make the best eyeliner ever.  Totally expensive, but with 25% off, I’m indulging.  Perhaps it will end up in my stocking.
Macy’s is having a Friends & Family sale.  25% off with code FRIEND.  (Don’t use PERFECT)   IF you spend $99 you get free s&h, which otherwise would be $9.99.  For a total of $91.67, including tax, I got all the following.
