Updating this post with Cyber Monday sales + what I bought…I definitely shopped more this year than I have in years past but I guess it’s making up for having bought next to nothing over the past few months! The good news is checked off pretty much everything so feel good about having taken advantage of the deals and even more glad to be giving my wallet a break! 😂
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I went into this week with a list of things to buy on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and like most of you have undoubtably noticed, the sales started so early this year! I’ve few things I ordered already came in and I’m planning to check a few more things off the list in the next few days. I’m going with fewer, better in terms of retailers to highlight since seemingly everything on the internet is marked down in some way…I’ll update this post if I see an updated promotion + when I snag other things for myself!
What I Bought…
+ These earrings (I’d been coveting them for a couple months and was waiting for a sale–they already arrived and are amazingly lightweight!)
+ I’m finally getting on the jogger train and picked up this pair for $25–the only “sweatpants” I have are a pair of yoga pants from eight years ago and I’m desperate for a legging alternative!
+ We’ve been talking about getting a Buffy comforter for months and I said we should just wait for a Black Friday sale, so I’m happy to report we have The Breeze coming our way! I’m someone who overheats easily at night and am crossing my fingers this is as breathable as they claim it is.
+ These boots have been on my radar for awhile and I wanted to treat myself after hitting a milestone…the plan was to wait for a Black Friday sale and I’m so glad Margaux delivered! Most styles are 20% off and this is their one sale of the year.
+ J.Crew had a great deal on these joggers so I ordered them in navy and am hoping that they’ll supplement the Gap pair well and that the two will fill this gap in my wardrobe!
+ We’ve been debating a Furbo and ended up getting one since they’re nearly 50% off this weekend. We almost always crate her when we’re out of the house but are starting to leave her loose sometimes (which actually stresses her out…apparently she doesn’t like the freedom!). The idea of talking to your dog through a camera’s microphone always seemed so bizarre to me but I’m starting to warm up to it and if anything, will just enjoy creeping on her when we’re out!
+ I was placing a large order at Old Navy as part of a “Santa’s Helpers” drive I’m shopping for, and they had these socks down to $1 on Black Friday. I got myself a pair and they’ve already arrived–highly recommend since they’re still only $3 right now!
+ I’ve been looking to upgrade my second screen at home and finally landed on this one! It’s not heavily discounted but it was something I wanted to pick up this year so decided to take the plunge.
+ My current Kindle case is nice but fairly heavy, which prevents me from carrying my Kindle as regularly as I’d like to and isn’t ideal when traveling. Fingers crossed this one is lighter–if it isn’t, it’s going back!
+ If you’re like me and prefer to wear normal shirts under sweaters (rather than tanks), this looks like a good option–I ordered it in black. Make sure you stack discount codes CYBERWOW and SOAMAZING and it comes out to $11.25 + free shipping!
MY FAVORITE BLACK FRIDAY/CYBER MONDAY SALES
BACKCOUNTRY: Up to 50% off sitewide–my puffy winter coat is 30% off, there are some great Topo Designs markdowns (I got J one of their backpacks and he uses it daily), and there’s a good amount of Barbour on sale! Backcountry also has the best customer service.
FOLLAIN: 20% off sitewide + free shipping on all orders–a must if you’re shopping for clean beauty! The brand just released their own (very well-priced) moisturizer, and I love this mascara. This is also the best for sore muscles or when you need to relax!
J.CREW FACTORY: 60% off + an additional 10% off + free shipping. A great time to snag a festive top that you’ll only wear a couple times a year, and I love their versatile earrings–like these and these!
LAKE PAJAMAS: A rare sitewide sale where everything is marked down. These are truly the best pajamas I’ve ever owned!
L.L. BEAN: 20% off through Tuesday; the perfect time to pick up the best slippers (for her and for him), a Sweater Fleece (Millie has a couple, too!), one of the best tote bags, and our Christmas stockings.
MADEWELL: 30% off everything through Monday–I ordered three pairs of jeans and can’t wait to see what all the hype is about!
SARAH FLINT: Buy more and save, starting with $100 off two pairs. If you’re new to the brand and not looking to invest in multiples yet, my discount code from being an ambassador with them just got upped to $50 off– use code BAMONICA50! I’m obsessed with their Perfect Pump.
THOM KELLY: Up to 25% off your purchase (use code THANKFUL15 for 15% off $25+; THANKFUL20 for 20% off $100+, THANKFUL25 for 25% off $250+)–I am obsessed with the new sweatshirt! It’s American-made, easy to dress up and down, and incredibly cozy without added weight.
TUCKERNUCK: Buy more, save more, but start with 20% off your purchase–I’ve been eyeing these earrings and finally ordered them (they came in and are great and SO lightweight!), their oversized printed scarves are great for dressing up basics, and I’m considering this sweater because I love the 525 brand and this style is 100% cotton!
