Best Buy is the best buy for your wedding registry


Planning a wedding can be stressful. Planning your wedding registry shouldn’t be. While there are a lot of places out there that have registries, Best Buy has one that will help you create a great “experience registry”.

Let’s face it most couples are living together before they get hitched. What you’re really looking for is those “slightly hard to find on other registries” items. You know, things that will help keep the spark in your relationship (mood lighting); create an enjoying time with other couples (dinner party) or even capturing those special moments (your honeymoon or other highlights).

Register for game night!  Break out your new TV and Xbox, take the chip-and-dip from your other registry out of the box, and have all your friends over for a dance party or a Call of Duty or Orange is the new Black marathon.

How about that new camera (with great digital to internet ability), to capture your honeymoon? Everyone can use new Bluetooth speakers (for those weekend parties or party on the beach) or how about the perfect extra-large TV (for super bowl with the gang or super-night in, just you and your honey?).

What’s always great – your bridal party or office can “pool” their funds together to get what you want through Group Gifting. This elevates stress and EVERYONE IS HAPPY!

Even if your relatives are miles away, they can send your gift to you, no matter the cost, with Best Buys great FREE SHIPPING. Exchanges, no problem and what you don’t get everything from your guests, you will enjoy a 10% discount so you can buy them yourself.

Best Buy has a wedding registry with your name on it.


With so many things to do before your big day, how about making life a little easier when it comes to your wedding registry? Did you know that Best Buy now has a wedding registry?!? I KNOW!!

I’m a real fan of Best Buy. It’s been a long time since a store has the latest products that fit my lifestyle and me. I have a feeling it’s the same for you. So when you and your partner start to build your registry, think about what you really need and your lifestyle. Best Buy really has the best selection of things you may need for you home and if you need help setting up your new device, the geek squad is always available. Now that’s service!ProductGroup

So why Best Buy? Look, do you really need another set of sheets or dishes? I didn’t think so. Giving your guests your registry from Best Buy will assure you that you get what you want and need to continue to build your home. You will also get the items you are truly excited to receive. That great new camera (to use on your honeymoon), perhaps that fitness tracker (to help keep you fitness goals on track) and my personal favorite Bluetooth speakers so you can play your favorite tunes on beach days or outdoors.

One of the key benefits to this registry vs others is “group gifting”. This means your guests will spend what they want, and you’ll get what you want. There is free shipping, which is an added bonus so no gift, no matter how big or small will get to you AND there is NO minimum PURCHASE required. That’s a win-win for everyone.

So when you’re looking for the best in products, best in sales staff, the best for you, look no further than…Best Buy!

Awards season is upon us, and the red carpet has never looked better.  While ogling over award-winning style is a universal luxury, wearing luxury jewelry is sadly not a reality for most.  Luckily this March CAROLEE is launching two glamorous collections fit for even the chicest celebrities.  The CAROLEE New York Aqua Mist and CAROLEE LUX Opal Essence collections both incorporate old Hollywood glamour, as well as iconic motifs and campaigns from the company’s rich archives, and modern design.  Elegantly cut opalescent gems, icy blue and clear crystals, and filigree silvertone metal will bring timeless flair to any ensemble.

Always a wonderful gift for your bridal party and something I’m sure they will enjoy for years to come. I know I do.

Body Shop helps with skin care resolutions

Your skin is the one part of your body that takes the most abuse and let’s face, doesn’t always have the kindest care.  Planning for your wedding or what ever big event means you should take some time to really up your -skin-care routine and the Body Shop has some great ideas to make this as easy as 1, 2, 3.

So let’s all try these resolutions remember summer is just a few months away.

Resolution #1:  Start to take care of your skin… really.

No more “raccoon eyes” when you wake up.  No more quick splashes of water as you run out the door.  Find a skincare regime that works for you and take care of your skin.  Start by discovering what kind of skin you have in The Body Shop boutique with a free Skincare consultation, or find your perfect Skincare program online.  You’ll feel and see the benefits, and your future self will thank you for being smart with your skin.

Resolution #2:  Find a beauty best friend–for life.

How many jars of unused skincare products haunt you from the back of your bathroom vanity?  Choose products with ingredients that have been time-tested and nature-approved. The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youthis certified organic and also uses Community Fair Trade organic babassu oil from Brazil,renowned for centuries for its intensive moisturizing properties.

Resolution #3:  Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. 

Let’s face it–winter is here. Say “bye-bye” to dryness with a moisture-filled approach to body care.  Creamy body wash. Exfoliating scrub. Rich, indulgent, cult classic Body Butter, which has been around since the early 1990s and continues to be a best-seller.  It all works to drench winter-weary skin with moisture and helps you get your glow on.

Resolution #4:  Just indulge… your skin.

Even if your New Year goals include cutting back on sweets, there’s no reason why you can’t give your skin a special treat.  The Body Shop Chocomania collection smells divine and leaves your skin silky smooth for a healthy feel all around.  Plus, launching at the end of the month (just in time for Valentine’s Day) is the DELECTABLY DECADENT DELUXE EDITION CHOCOMANIA BATH & BODY RANGE that just got even more indulgent with a brand new luxelook that smells and looks good enough to eat!

Why not have one for you, and one for someone sweet?  These fragrant pampering goodies are perfect for indulging others.  What’s more, these chocolaty-scented treats are totally guilt-free.  Go on, spoil someone special, including yourself!

Resolution #5:  Fruits and veggies are your friends.

The Body Shop is famous for its fabulous fruity flavors, like Satsuma, Pink Grapefruit and Strawberry.  Even in the dead of winter, the fresh fragrances bring brightness to your bath and body ritual.  It’s like a bit of sunshine in the shower.

Resolution #6:  Start fresh.

January is a time for new beginnings.  A time to declutter and organize your life:  Start with your make-up bag.  Try new all-in-one products like The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream that combines a moisturizer and foundation.  Pigment-filled capsules transform for an even finish thatsuits your skin tone, and 24-hour hydration keeps you looking fresh.  Now, that’s smart!

Resolution #7:  Turn winter blahs into ooohs and aaahhhs. 

Winter blahs can make you want to hide under a blanket and escape from the world.  This year, face them head on by embracing winter and finding a new look to add some sass to the season. The Body Shop in-shop make-up artists can share the latest tips and tricks so you can blast the blahs into ooohs and aaahhs!

Resolution #8:  Know when it’s time to say “goodbye.”

Make-up doesn’t last forever, and as much as we all hate to throw things out, there does come a time to say goodbye.  Mascara is the big one – it should be replaced every three months to avoid eye infections and ensure bright-eyed beauty.

Resolution #9:  Look Spa Fit… every day.

Give your body an extra boost with the New Spa Fit Firming & Toning Gel-Cream Massager from The Body ShopA pure pleasure to use, this new Gel-Cream is enriched with 100% natural-origin actives, combined with its exclusive built-in spa-massager for extra toning action.  The entire Spa Fit collection will make you feel great and will give you a “leg up” at the gym.

Resolution #10:  Make the world a better place!

We all want to do our part to help others whenever we can.  Through Community Fair Trade, The Body Shop is committed to trading fairly with suppliers and seeking out quality raw ingredients and accessories from the four corners of the globe.  What started at The Body Shop in 1987 is stronger than ever, positively impacting the lives of 300,000 people around the world, every year.

One of the things I love about the brand – beyond the fact that they give back, they also have great sales.  This makes it a great gift option for you and your entire bridal party (yes the guys too!!).
