If you have children at home who still believe in Santa Claus, then you may have an Elf on The Shelf who visits each holiday season and makes your kids feel paranoid.

It’s puffy coat season, again — at least for those of us living in the northeast — and I recently purchased a light-weight, puffy parka for an upcoming trip to Alaska that I am very much looking forward to wearing. While wasting time in Saks Off 5th — which is Saks’ Outlet Store on 57th Street (where Daffy’s used to be!) I came across this rack of discounted, child’s-sized puffy coats in a very Hot Hot Pink color. Sometimes, the Pink Things just come right to me.
