My favorite 4-letter word that packs a powerful punch. No, it isn’t one that TV censors would rush to *bleep* out, nor the one that makes you feel all sentimental. Satisfaction takes on a different meaning involving the lovely 4-letter word usually in red -SALE. I must confess, I am a shopaholic but not that the filthy rich kind that can close both eyes and sign off big ticket items without wincing a bit. I don’t just shop, I shop for sales- resisting impulse buys as I patiently hope my favorite big ticket items would go on sale. Then those items go from costing ‘an arm and a leg’ to 30% discount to 50% -that’s when I grab them and feel really smug about myself. Like these One Teaspoon Bandit cutoff shorts that went from $110 to $55! So stress less, distress more and stock up. In sun-deprived Seattle, I am summer dreaming, as I am ready to rock this on my next vacation to Mexico… These 4 pieces are definitely vacation essentials. Estoy listo para México!
