Black Friday Sales + A Christmas Playlist

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! Who’s ready to shop?!

I know you don’t need any guide from me to find the best Black Friday deals since virtually everything is on sale. However, I wanted to bring to your attention four sales that I am particularly excited about since these shops almost never have sales:

  • Inslee–one of my most prized possessions are the original watercolor flamingos I purchased from Inslee earlier this year. (You can see them here.) Her prints start at a very affordable $38 and scale up from there, depending on the size you want. I’m currently crushing on her flamingo print and her Cherry Blossom gal print. Her 2018 calendars are also to die for!
  • Society Social—this is my favorite store for home decor, and they literally only run one sale a year! If you love the pillows on my couch, then you’re familiar with Society Social. I’ve long been obsessed with their bar carts, which are currently $100 off! Get ’em while you can!
  • Gray Malin—I think I’ve settled on splurging on a Gray Malin photograph for the art over my bed. And when I say splurge, I’m not exaggerating—these archival prints are not cheap. However, today through the weekend, you can get 30% off all prints. So, if you’ve had your eye on something, now is the time to buy!
  • Empress Themes—if you’re a blogger (or an aspiring one!) looking for a fresh design, I cannot recommend EmPress enough. (You can read all about my experience with this amazing shop here.) They are running a rare sale—use the code THANKS10 to receive 10% off all themes and plugins (excluding the $5) now through Monday at 11:59pm PST.

I’ve pulled out my top 16 gifts from these guides for you below—get those deals, ladies!  Read more “Black Friday Sales + A Christmas Playlist”

The Best Pants for Holiday Festivities

Happy, happy Thanksgiving friends!

It’s very unlike me to post a “regular” post on this day that should be spent with those who bring you love and light—and I have a feeling most of you probably won’t read it today. (ICYMI, I shared six (of the many) things I’m thankful for in Monday’s post.)

Truthfully, I wasn’t even going to schedule this post to go live until next Thursday. However, I wanted to go ahead and get it up for two reasons. First, I know some of you browse blogs today as a break from family and/or on the couch in a post-turkey coma. Second, I wanted to make sure you had the chance to purchase these amazing black and gold jacquard Old Navy pants before they’re gone. And, if I was a betting person, my guess is these pants won’t make it past the Black Friday madness—at least in all sizes, anyway!

Let me just say, I am *obsessed* with these pants—and everyone I passes seems to be, too. The first time I wore them, a woman stopped me on the Metro to ask me where they were from. Y’all, you don’t understand—strangers do not speak to each other on the Metro. This is essentially a violation of the social contract we have one another. When I told the woman I had snagged them from Old Navy, she essentially had to pick her jaw up off the floor, which was the same reaction I initially had.  Read more “The Best Pants for Holiday Festivities”

2017 Gift Guides: For the Home

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Who else is going to take some time today to start watching the Friends Thanksgiving episodes?!

I wanted to pop in with another gift guide ahead of Black Friday—and am aiming to get another one up for you later today after I get home from my short day at work. These gift ideas for the home were really fun for me to pull together because I love decor, both the larger pieces and the knick knacks that would make great gifts for friends or hostesses this time of year.

I’ll keep things short and sweet today, but in case you’re in need of other ideas today as the deals start dropping, check out my other gift guides here—under $25, under $50, stocking stuffers, for your coworkers. Read more “2017 Gift Guides: For the Home”
