Sold1I am not sure what it is about this month, but sales in the store have skyrocketed recently. Last year at this time, Potomac Trading Post had been open for less than four months. January sales were probably the lowest that they had been all year. I thought that perhaps it was something that I was doing wrong, but it turns out that the first month of the year is usually the slowest for retail stores (given that customers are still recovering from Christmas). This year, January has proven to be a profitable month so far. So thank you, everyone! I could not have done it and would not be here without all of you.

men : in the store

PM-J1186A_968_Virgin_FIGURE_01During the Christmas break, I was able to add almost a dozen new items to the store that were just for men. I was hoping to show you all these wonderful items sooner, but since then, nearly half of them have sold! I therefore chose to wait just a little longer to ensure that what I presented to you would still be available. Here they are :

IMG_00272. Adidas L.A. Galaxy Beckham Jersey.

IMG_00483. Paper Denim & Cloth Jeans.

IMG_00024. Le Château Retro Sweater.

5. Le Château Crewneck Sweater.

IMG_00046. American Eagle Collared Tee.

7. Jarman Benchmark Vintage Oxfords.

Don’t forget to visit the store website for more men’s clothing options, or eBay to purchase them directly. We combine shipping. Oh, and did I mention that they’re currently 50% off? Because they are!

wish list : christmas ootd

il_fullxfull.843815624_pjpwPart of preparing for Christmas includes creating cute outfits to impress your nearest and dearest. At least it is for me. This year, I came across some seriously amazing items that I wouldn’t mind adding to my wardrobe. Here’s what can be found on my wish list!

37372919_001_dUrban Outfitters is my go-to online store whenever I am needing new items. This Crop Top is just to die for.

il_fullxfull.843592733_sr37Can we imagine for five minutes that I’m not pregnant, and am totally comfortable with putting my not-so-defined thighs on show? Great. Then I would buy and wear this Sheer Skirt by iheartnorwegianwood in a heartbeat.

_11333680This Marc by Marc Jacobs Domo Biker Backpack is what dreams are made of. At least my dreams.

il_fullxfull.780824556_8l8kThese Tiny Bar Earrings by GemBlue are incredibly adorable.

9876543_2fe6723e-dd3b-4a5a-9acf-d0b1a9c9b30a_2048x2048How cute would this Antler Ring by For Love & Lemons be, paired with those earrings seen above?

I think that I was a very good girl this year. Maybe Santa will bring me everything on this list?

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
