Dreaming of Summer

I’m going to admit, I took these photos a few days ago while we still had (off and on) warm, sunny days. In advance for the dark/gloomy/rainy weather that was forecasted. And I’m glad I did!! Because it’s terribly dark and depressing out there. Enjoy this little touch of sunlight πŸ™‚

And SURPRISE!!! A SUPER CUTE PUPPY! A man in this park was selling three adorable purebred shih tzus…. soooo cute. The little boy puppy I held was $800. Not surprising, since my purebred  female Yorkie was $1250!!! Cute little dogs are so expensive! lol

Have you heard of the Amazon wish list? It is amazing. I’ve had mine for a little over a year. What it is, you install a little button in your browser first. Then on ANY site, any site at all, you can click that Amazon button and it will add it to your universal wish list. It grabs the main product picture, which sometimes I have no idea how it knows which picture to grab, and then it grabs the price. This way you can go through your Amazon wish list whenever you want and look at all the stuff you want to buy on a million different sites, all in one. 

The Amazon wish list installer also looks through Amazon to see if they are selling the same thing for a better price. This never works on apparel or shoes, but I was looking at some kitchenware and it found cheaper prices for the same stuff! 

Now if you’re like me, after a while your list will have grown to say, 200 + items. And in a way it’s kind of bad for the wallet because you are always able to look at everything you want immediately and sometimes you are just a little more free with your money than you should be πŸ™‚ But what I love is A) I can check for stuff I want periodically (and easily) and buy the item right when the price drops (which it often does), B) opens the links to the products on their own company websites in a new tab without me needing to right click, C) you can prioritize the list for friends if they want to buy you gifts D) you can add comments as reminders to yourself which I often use for promo codes I find in advance.

Here’s an example of what I have left from my Christmas Wish List. FYI – I removed the items I was gifted already πŸ™‚

Happy shopping πŸ™‚

    I used to have a sheltie when I still lived in the US. Don't think I'll have another dog until I have my future dream home. Sigh…Thanks for the info on amazon wish list. And the denim shirt. I have one from Nautica and never thought to use it for anything else but layering in the summer when it's hot.Visit me:LeeAnne, Style N Seasonhttp://stylenseason.blogspot.com
