Strategize, Save, and Survive Black Friday




Black Friday is only a few days away (eek!) and I'm already seeing news of the latest sales and must-have items for Christmas this year.  The shopping seems to get started earlier and earlier these days as before only a few select stores would be open at midnight of Black Friday whereas this year, I see many opening up at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day already!  While I will admit that years ago I loved joining in on the frenzy of Black Friday shopping and would definitely score some major deals, being a full-time mom now has definitely changed things and I will most likely just be shopping online, sitting in my pajamas by and with a hot chocolate in my lap!  #noshame

Meanwhile, here's a fun little infographic about Black Friday / Cyber Monday shopping that I found interesting.  The social influence differences when it came to purchasing was news for me!

Electronics always seem like a popular Black Friday item as the discounts usually run pretty deep.  You'll definitely want to check out the deals at Office Depot OfficeMax as prices are at their lowest ever -- I noticed a couple laptops and tablets are even more than 50% off!  And if you do just need a break from all the shopping, you can #ElfYourself on the Office Depot OfficeMax site too.  :)

Gift Guide: For Her

holiday gifting guide:  for her

Black Friday is this week and I have holiday gift guides ready to help you all with that holiday shopping!  To kick it off, I figured I'd start with a gift guide for us ladies.  These gifts would be great for women of all ages as most of them are classic pieces that will never go out of style.  Most of my picks are from some of my favorite labels including Tory Burch, Kate Spade, and Michael Kors.

To point out a few of my favorites, you can't go wrong with the Tory Burch Robinson Tote -- the saddle brown color coordinates with everything and the design is timeless.  Similarly popular are the Tory Burch 'Reva' flats as well as their riding boots (which are on sale too!).  I love that the re-designed flats no longer have the elastic ruching in the back and thus no longer require a breaking in period.  

Michael Kors has also hit it out of the park this season and I am in love with the bucket bag!  And the metallic wallet is so chic that I feel like it could even pass on its own as a clutch this holiday season.  Followed up by this open arrow cuff that strikes the perfect balance of edgy and ladylike.

And finally, some accessories!  Pink and gold is such a chic combo so of course I fell in love with this Kate Spade watch as well as this elephant bangle.  To finish off that chic fashionista look, these cat-eye sunglasses are perfect!

Newborn Essentials: Part II

Last couple days to enter my Zara plaid blanket scarf giveaway!

In case you missed it, Part I of my newborn essentials series.

I can't even believe I'm 31 weeks pregnant tomorrow.  Am I in single-digit countdown mode already?  As far as gear goes, I think we're ready but the mental aspect of juggling a newborn and a toddler is still an idea that scares the bejeezus outta me.  In any case, going through and writing up this newborn essentials series has reminded me of the early days with Dylan and at least I have the comfort of having gone through this newborn phase before -- even though it can be tough, it's such a short period of time when you look back on it and I know I'll just have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy it.

Glitzy Holiday Makeup Look

MAC Objects of Affection gold + beige + glitter pigment collection (buy)

I love playing around with more glam makeup around the holidays and I almost always end up buying something from MAC's holiday collection every year.  Lately, I've rediscovered my pigments and have been absolutely loving using pigment eyeshadows as the colors just stand out so much more than regular powder eyeshadow and I find that it really gives my eyes a pop when the weather outside is cold and dreary.  I picked up the MAC Objects of Affection pigment collection in gold + beige + glitter and the colors are stunning while the neutral colors make it easily wearable, even for everyday!
