Until last week’s horrendous #WTFis10degrees weather, we’ve had a pretty tame winter. But with snow starting to fall, temperatures consistently dropping and the wind having an ‘I don’t care about your life in these streets’ attitude, I finally caved after a 3-year boycott of the infamous UGG boot trend. Yeah, I know...I feel like I’m returning to my Terp days of leggings and UGGs walking across campus--that Buzzfeed “You know you went to Maryland when..” is sooooooo freakin’ true-- but I’m returning with a purpose and in a chic way; plus I DON’T CARE ANYMORE IT’S TOO COLD!
Instead of going for the “BASIC” look, I got the classic shorts in Black. They’re not only perfect for my everyday monochrome style choices, but they will go well with any coat in my closet for these colder months; meaning my outdoor “I’m freakin’ freezing” look will be just as on point as what’s underneath.
I decided to order them from Bloomingdale’s (I know you’re waiting to see how I got them for $25)
Okay, okay so they really weren’t just $25, but mixed with a gift card, a great sale and my trusty Ebates, that’s literally all that came out of my pocket. One of my dearest clients got me a “just because” gift in June. It was a gorgeous gold frame, but it just didn’t really fit into my office or home decor. She provided a gift receipt as any good gift giver would do, so being that it’s just been sitting in my apartment still in the box for 6 months now, I thought it would only be right to return it and get something that I would really use. Bloomingdale’s return policy has no time limit, and with their big January sale going on, it was the perfect time for me to pick up something that I needed.
After contemplating sunglasses upon sunglasses and even a Nutribullet (yeah I know I was pretty much just looking for anything and everything), I settled on a pair of UGGs to keep my toes warm in this Brick-City weather. To maximize my discount as I always do, I went to Bloomingdales.com through my Ebates account, insuring me an additional 3% cashback from my purchase. --Believe me when I say, “Every Little Bit Helps.” I’ve been making online purchases through this site for 3 years now and have racked in almost $650. SO SIGN UP HERE: CLICK HERE-- The boots were also on sale from $155 to $129.99, and will be on sale until January 31.
I’m also a Bloomi’s LOYALLIST, which gives me free ground shipping, but I opted for the $5 same day delivery option, which I have to say is the most brilliant idea on the planet to increase sales while people like myself are sitting in the office.
So How Does Same Day Delivery Work?
Super Easy! After I placed my order and received my order confirmation, I got a second delivery scheduler email.
After scheduling my delivery window time, I got an email when my package was picked up and with the courier's name. Not even 45 minutes late, I had my Big Brown Bag sitting on my desk at work! Quick, Efficient and Hassle Free shopping!
Whether you’re like me and just want your online purchases in-hand seconds after check out or if you need a last minute gift, but are swamped at the office, Bloomingdale’s same day delivery service is a busy New Yorker’s dream.
All I can say is my feet are going to be super toasty in this killer city cold...Take That Mr. Cray-Cray Weather!
