Sears Christmas Shop Helps Make Decorating Easier

Christmas is almost here, and it's time to decorate.  I love making the home look festive and cheery.  Every year I'm always searching for something new to make the house more comforting during the season.  Sears Christmas Shop made it easier this year, it's a "one stop" shop for all my (and YOUR) Christmas needs.

While I was shopping I found the decorations for trimming your tree reasonably priced.  Sears has ornaments and accessories to meet every different style of decorating. 

Every year, I buy a new ornament for my tree,  after looking around I ended up with a cute ornament from the Ty Pennington collection for $3.99

Do  you need a Christmas tree?   Sears Christmas Shop has plenty of options for artificial trees from tabletop to the very tall.  Sears makes purchasing easy too with Sears layaway.  Grab what you need to make your holiday decorating a success, and pay what fits into your budget over time. 

Sears Christmas Shop even has great items to help bring cheer to any room in your home.  I found these towels that would look great in the bathroom.   

Do you need inspiration, or some decorating tips?  Sears Cheer Headquarters can help bring everything together for you.  Also while visiting the Cheer Headquarters you can also enter to win a Holiday Home Makeover with Ty Pennington

So become the Commander of Cheer in your home, and visit Sears for your "one stop" shop for all your decorating needs.  No time to go to the store, you can also find the Sears Christmas Shop on-line.

Kylie Minogue~The Abbey Road Sessions Review

photo courtesy of

I remember listening to Kylie Minogue back in high school with her hit song "The Locomotion".  And when I was asked to review her new album "The Abbey Road Sessions", I jumped at the chance. 

The release of Abbey Road Sessions celebrates Kylie's 25th anniversary in music.  It features sixteen of Kylie's classic tracks  including "The Locomotion", and "Can't Get You Out Of Head".  The album, which was recently released on November 6th,  was recorded in the famous Abbey Road Studios in London with Kylie's band and a full orchestra.  All sixteen original tracks are completely re-worked and re-arranged many with the full orchestra.  The track listing includes:

1.  All The Lovers
2.  On A Night Like This
3.  Better The Devil You Know
4.  Hand On Your Heart
5.  I Believe In You
6.  Come Into My World
7.  Finer Feelings
8.  Confide In Me
9.  Slow
10. The Locomotion
11. Can't Get You Out Of My Head
12. Where The Wild Roses Grow
13. Flower
14. I Should Be So Lucky
15. Love At First Sight
16. Never Too Late

Listen to a sample of the CD below, you'll hear for yourself how more beautiful her voice sounds. 


 My Opinion:

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this CD.  While I was working on the computer one day I decided to entertain myself with her music and I'm so glad I did.  I noticed her voice is much more "grown up" than I remember in high school.  The music and her voice were very calming.  All the songs are just amazing, but my favorite of all is "Flower".  This part of the lyric reminds me of my children

2 hearts in the hands of time
Your love bleeds into mine
I’ll be with you forever
And give you everything I am
Want you to understand
It’s you and I together

Here is the video and you'll see for yourself why it's my favorite, it's just absolutely beautiful!

Abbey Road Sessions is available now, and can be found on Amazon and on itunes
