My mother has taught me well! When in need of distraction, a little shopping never hurts. Last weekend I went with my girlfriends to UVillage where we shopped our hearts out. My big purchase was a Tiffany charm (with my own initial on it, of course).
My other new favorite store is Glassybaby. I bought myself a pink and a blue one, but I also registered a wishlist on their site so I can keep track of my collection. These are gorgeous and make great gifts, so stop by their UVillage store or their new spot on Main Street in Bellevue. You might just get all your Christmas shopping done in one stop!
