Waaaaay back on November 10th, I had the chance to check out Santa HQ by HGTV at Fashion Outlets of Chicago. Check out my original photos below.

Since then, thousands of Chicago area families have enjoyed this high tech trek to Santa. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, go already.
Fashion Outlets of Chicago is one of our favorites, and a stellar spot to find last minute gifts. We also recommend taking your holiday money there next week to treat yourself. I was given a fun goody bag for coming out to cover Santa HQ. I was not compensated in any other way. As always, all opinions and experiences are my own.

Look! I made the top of the "Nice List".
After exploring Santa HQ and telling the big guy in the red suit what I wanted for Christmas, I went to Hot Topic, The Body Shop, and a close out sale at Aeropostale where I found a great deal on a bunch of awesome jeans for my teen daughter, 4 flannels, and loads of cozy polar bear and panda socks for stocking stuffers.
We're wishing you and yours happy holidays, magical memories, and warm winter fun with family and friends.
