Pink Saturday Goes to Bergdorf GoodTimes

Pink (and Green) at Bergdorf Goodman

It's our last Christmas in New York post for this season and our first Pink Saturday of 2020.  These were my favorite windows of the 2019 season and I saved the best for very last. Bergdorf Goodman is an icon on Fifth Avenue and their windows are always beautiful and inspired. This year was no exception. Their hashtag for this season was #BergdorfGoodtimes and I thank them for the good times I had looking at their windows. 


This is a showcase window for the bright pink pocketbook. It's not part of the 
holiday series, but it was a natural for a Pink Saturday semi-selfie.

Not as bright, but fabulous design

Bright green jungle time on Fifth Avenue

This is Tilt, possibly my favorite pinball design ever

More pink and more green and a tippy toppy gingerbread man!

Moving on to January -- Day four of No-Spending was a success. I bought eggs and cheese at the grocery and that was my total spending. I'm adding a new challenge to cut down on snack spending. Most days I get a snack during the day. I may stop for coffee or a treat, or just a rest while I'm doing errands. I estimate that my daily "snack" spending is about $5.00/daily. My goal isn't stopping snacks/treats entirely, but to cut down. I'm going for ten days in January when I skip my treat. Today was the first day. I passed the bakery next to the library where I often stop for a pick me up in the middle of the afternoon. I passed my favorite frozen yogurt store -- sugar-free is my treat there -- and I passed the local pizza stand, where every once in awhile I have an early dinner. This is only a test, but I think it will be a successful test. End of the year (estimated) savings will equal $600.00, which will pay for airfare (and spending money)for an event I'm going to in October. 
Total saving on January 4: $26.98. :)

I hope you enjoyed all of our Christmas in New York fun and the new year is being kind to you. As ever, thanks for visiting and have a sweet weekend.

The windows are AWESOME! I have never seen a pinball design window. I think that one and the green, and the pink bag are my favorites. It is so hard to stay away from a treat when you actually pass a tempting place! You have willpower!

What talent, to conceptualize and create those windows! Remember when pink and red were NEVER put together? LOL.
Such a good idea, your small steps adding up to a 'free' plane ride!

Thanks for sharing the store windows. I do miss the lovely ones our down town used to have to look at. Giving my snacks up would be hard, but the idea of saving enough for an airplane ticket appeals to me i'd like to go on Srpring break to to see family in Texas.

Those window scenes are wonderful with their displays and reflections. I am determined to cut back in a lot of areas. The spirit is willing anyhow :) Thanks for visiting Buttercup and Happy New Year :)
