Splendid Warehouse Sale!

Warehouse Sale

YAY!!!  Splendid/Ella Moss warehouse sale is here again this weekend!   Splendid and Ella Moss are my favorite contemporary sportswear brands. Everything is fairly casual but the fabrics are super duper soft and luxurious.  At a department store, the average retail for a top is about $60 & up but at the sale, it’s $20. This is how some of the items were priced at the last sale.

They also have stuff for kids and men as well. There are no dressing rooms so plan on pulling stuff over what you’re wearing. Parking is $10 in the building or there is metered parking, which is $4 an hour. Happy Shopping!


All I want for Christmas

is my very own tablet.  How many of you out there have a child who wants that?  I had to share this amazing deal with you because I just can’t help myself. When I see a good deal, I must tell everyone I know. (Just ask my friends)  Last month my son received this kindle fire for his birthday from my dear sister. First I had to resuscitate him due to the sheer shock and bliss of actually getting his own tablet.  Then he jumped right in and started using it.  Coming from a household of iPhone and iPad users, I have to say that the fire is pretty awesome.  I am not a techie by any means but it does everything our iPads do.  It even has an expandable memory.  I wish I had an expandable memory.  My son’s fire has all but replaced the iPad. So now you know and I feel better.  Thanks.

Basketball Registration

Registration begins on Saturday, November 7 for the City of Cerritos youth basketball league at the Cerritos Sports Complex from 10 am to 4 pm if you are a resident and again on November 11 from 4 pm to 8 pm.  For non-residents, registration begins on November 14.  If this is your first time signing up, be prepared to stand in a long a** line!  Based on my own experience, the wait time is about an hour and a half.  The fee is $47 and you get a jersey and a trophy at the end of the season.  The kids are divided by birth year so kids born in 2010 will be entering Rookie I and so forth.

The Cerritos Sports Complex is located at 19900 Bloomfield Ave., Cerritos.  See you in line!


Haunted Jails

Have you always wanted to see what jail is like without actually getting arrested? How about a haunted one at that?  This year you have two opportunities!  The Cerritos Sheriff Station will be hosting its Haunted Jail tomorrow, Saturday, October 24th from 3 to 10 pm. It will be a kid-friendly Halloween-themed fair with jumpers, face painting, crafts, and candy. A scary tour of the haunted jail with special effects will be available for the older crowd. A $3 donation is suggested.  Cerritos Station is located at 18135 Bloomfield Avenue right next to the library.

The Lakewood Sheriff’s Station becomes ‘The Haunted Jail’ on Friday, October 30, from 4:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Along with a scary jail for visitors 12 and older, there is also a less scary version for younger children. There will be public displays from various Sheriff’s Department units as well as kids games. Lakewood Station is located at 5130 Clark Avenue. The best place to park is on the south end of Civic Center Drive on or near the vacant lot and Angelo M. Iacoboni Library. More parking becomes available after library and city hall business hours.



Hudson Warehouse Sale


Hudson oct15

The  Hudson warehouse sale is here again for 2 days.  The sale is very well organized and the best selection is on the first day.  The seconds are $40 and regular production is $60.  By seconds, they mean there are slight imperfections and/or irregularities.  I picked up 3 pairs of seconds for the price of one at full price and I love them.  I never noticed the difference.  You do have to know your size and fit though because you cannot try anything on so stop by Nordstrom and try on a couple of pairs before you go.
