Become A Vintage Valentine’s Day Princess For As Low As $6

Become A Vintage Valentine’s Day Princess For As Low As $6. There’s just something about 1950’s style dresses that makes everyone look gorgeous- it’s the only kind of style I can wear that actually gives me a waist. (I have what is charitably called a “swimmer’s build,” meaning you couldn’t even sculpt a waist on me with a kitchen knife.) And this is the time of year we all want to be a little glamorous, romantic, possibly even sexy.

 

There’s flattering lingerie now for any body type, along with pretty, romantic plus-size dresses. Some of the dress styles I have here are as low as $6.00- but the catch is you need to order now to get them in time for Valentine’s Day festivities. Otherwise, the cost in shipping makes them expensive again. Have a look here for some other ideas and styles.

 

There’s also super-cheap petticoats for underneath to give you a nice, swingy skirt. Have a look...  (Editor’s note: if you’re searching for any decor items you’ve seen on our show or in craft videos, you’ll find all the materials – or even already made –  here.)

 

Become A Vintage Valentine’s Day Princess For As Low As $6. Here’s some of my favorite looks- you can find all kinds of styles and even costume jewelry in our Amazon.com store here.

Remember! Order early! Like, NOW!

 

 

 

 

The Todd & Erin “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing

The Todd & Erin “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing.

I have a 6’6 mountain of a brother that’s a hard-core carnivore. He was “Keto-friendly” before there was such a thing. So I buy him a case of Rogliano’s Italian Dressing every year for his Christmas gift. Aside from being ridiculously tasty, this stuff acts as a marinade… part of your crockpot meal… ribs… pasta salads… pork… sandwiches… shrimp… it even makes a perfect gourmet grilled cheese sandwich and panini when you baste dressing on your bread instead of butter. 

 

 

But here’s why I love Rogliano’s. Jeff and Veronica.

They’re the owners of this lovely, tasty business and they’re at every local fundraiser, every community event, and they epitomize “shopping local.” Rogliano’s is carried in every local grocery store, from Harmons to Dick’s Market, in fact you can find all the locations that carry them here. If you don’t want to have to actually leave the house, you can order them online as well at Rogliano’s.com. There’s all kinds of lovely recipes online as well, just in case you have “chef fatigue” and you can’t think of one more thing to cook. Jeff describes their tasty dressing like this:

“The recipe for Rogliano’s Italian dressing has been a family tradition since 1922. The authentic Italian tastes comes straight from the old country and is not only a delicious salad dressing, but makes a great dipping sauce, seasoning or marinade that is superb for grilling.”

 

Everybody loves them. Governor and Mrs. Herbert…

 

 

They’ve dressed up their dressing bottles for the holidays, so it tucks nicely into a Christmas stocking, a gift basket (or in my gigantic brother’s case, a side of beef and a case of Rogliano’s) and part of anything that needs extra tastiness. 

 

 

Supporting Rogliano’s by throwing a boatload of bottles in your shopping cart is one of the best ways to support a local business that supports all of us right back at charities… community events… Erin’s Night Out… Look! Even Kevin (Hercules) Sorbo loves them. And so do I.

The Todd & Erin “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Rebecca Segars Skin Care

The Todd & Erin “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Rebecca Segars Skin Care. Meet today’s Shop Locally Legend: Rebecca Segars. She’s a Master Esthetician with 17 years of experience, and the woman believes in helping you age gracefully. We actually ran into Rebecca when the Todd got a recommendation and went in for his VERY FIRST skin care session. What should have been a brisk exfoliation/extraction thingie turned into this epic, hour-long masterpiece with a foot rub and warm booties, a shoulder rub, steam… towels… lotions… (I’m quoting the Todd at this point. He was a little giddy and had a misty expression of happiness for a good 36 hours.) PS: his face looks amazing. 

Anyone familiar with spa services will gasp and clutch their pearls like a maiden aunt at this- her prices are amazing:

Brow wax: $18

Full Leg wax: $50

Chemical peel: $60

High-frequency anti-aging facial: $80

Brow tint: $12

Lash tint: $20

But there’s so much more, you can find all of Rebecca’s glorious offerings here.

Rebecca works out of a beautiful vintage home in Salt Lake City- you feel serene the minute you enter, even if you have no idea what serene means. A simple spa service turns into a wonderfully nurturing experience- seriously, with 119 reviews, she scores 5 out of 5 stars. Every time. If you’re looking for a new expert to place your tired self in their capable hands, Rebecca is your girl.

As for gift certificates and December specials, they’re spectacular. After the Todd’s experience, I’d strongly suggest buying a gift certificate for the man in your life who could REALLY use some help. She does back waxes. Just saying…

Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Bonnie’s Joy Pin-up. I can’t imagine a more satisfying gift than one that makes you look and feel beautiful, and gives you photographic proof. I’ve been wanting to do a vintage, “pin-up girl” photo for the Todd for a while, he loooves that style.

Pure Romance by Brenda Winters

Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Pure Romance by Brenda Winters

 

Welcome to Day 6 of the “Shop Locally” crusade! And thank you to everyone who’s been shopping with these folks after we highlight them. Karma points for supporting local businesses! Pure Romance by Brenda Winters is here at the perfect time of the year- nothing more romantic than twinkling lights… a snuggle by the fireplace… and a little something extra under the tree. Plus, stock up now and you’re sailing into Valentine’s Day in no time! I really like how Brenda looks at what she does as a businesswoman:

“My business, Pure Romance by Brenda Winters is an in-home party company, like Pampered Chef or Mary Kay or Tupperware. But instead of kitchen items or cosmetics, I sell lotions, lingerie and intimacy products. I love what I do because I get to help women in an area of their lives where they don’t know where to turn for help when they face challenges. As a Pure Romance Consultant, I get to assist and empower women to experience health, wellness and joy in their intimate relations.”

 

Pure Romance by Brenda is rolling out the 12 Days of Christmas right now- a series of delightful lotions and potions and… stuff every day at special prices. Shopping for personal gifts can sometimes be a little uncomfortable, but Brenda makes it fun and easy, which is exactly what shopping this time of year should be. You can either shop personally with Brenda or have her do all the work and throw a party for you and your closest friends. You can find Brenda on Facebook, emailing her here, or her website

Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Perfectly Posh Pampering

 

 

Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Perfectly Posh Pampering. Who could possibly say “no” to glorious facials and lotions, lip plumpers and all cruelty-free, made in the USA and vegan? You get karma brownie points while you shop. BONUS!

 

Meet Mrs. Lewis and her daughter Jazzy J, who was born blind in one eye. So while working with the challenges of learning to navigate the world, Jazzy J decided to be a dancer. And she is, an amazing one in fact. While searching online for the perfect suitcase for her daughter’s dance tours, Clerissa found Perfectly Posh and signed up instantly to become a consultant. And, by the way, also earned the perfect pink rolling suitcase for her daughter at the same time.

 

 

This stuff is SO GOOD! I can personally recommend the lip plumper, my personal favorite. Clerissa is also spectacular at selecting custom gift packages, assembling them and shipping them, if you’d rather have her do all the work. I’m looking into the Defiant Line- all kinds of skin firmers and wrinkle reducers. I can use as much of those as I can get right now…

 

 

 

But back to you! This is the time to order, and Clerissa’s there for you, honey. Here’s a special offer- let Clerissa know you heard about her from us, and with your purchase of $50 or more, she’ll send you a 50% off item coupon for your next purchase. Thank you for supporting another local business!

Todd & Erin’s “Shop Local” Holiday List – The “12 Days Of Christmas” Cosmetic Gifties

The “12 Days Of Christmas” Gifties – Todd & Erin’s “Shop Local” Holiday List. Day Three is my warm introduction to Michelle Brooks– the Holiday Queen of Custom Packages. She’s a clever Mary Kay rep who can put together some spectacular, personalized packages for women AND men.

 

 

Let’s be honest- most men will not shop for “product.” But good heavens, guys! You need it! And Michelle can set up a personalized pampering service for you after the holidays if you want some help with makeup or skin care. Gift packages start as low as $25, and Michelle offers you a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

 

My personal favorite is the “12 Days Of Christmas” gift packages, something new to open every day. Who doesn’t like that? And I’m kind of relieved I don’t have to think up gift ideas for some of my neighbors- Michelle puts it all together, it looks like I made an effort, and people I care about get something unique that I did not have to shop for! Win!

 

This is a great time to support one of our local businesswomen- you can reach Michelle at 385-251-7409, or online at michelle.brooks@marykay.com. See more of her tasty concoctions here.
