So do any of y’all have a case of the Mondays today? I FEEL YOU. For starters, I didn’t eat pie for breakfast this morning. Which was a total bummer.
Well, I don’t have pie to offer y’all for breakfast, but I promise that things are about to start looking up. Shay and I are going to try our best to help you combat the Monday blues. Today kicks off our 8th Annual FIVE DAYS OF FABULOUS series where every single day we will be giving away some AMAZING prizes! #holdontoyourhankypankys #itsgonnabegood
We love doing this every year as a huge THANK YOU to y’all! We are so grateful to you ladies for supporting our blogs, and this is our way of saying thanks. So get ready for a super fun week, because OH MY GOODNESS do we have some great stuff planned!!!
If you don’t follow Shay, hop over HERE and check out her blog. She’s married with 4 of the cutest kids you ever did see, and she cooks up a storm too! She’s a cookbook author (SO COOL!) and you can check out her Meal Planning Mondays HERE.
So…drum roll please…time to announce the DAY #1 GIVEAWAY!
We are giving away two APPLE WATCH SERIES 6 WATCHES WITH A GOLD ALUMINUM CASE AND SPORT BAND!!!
That’s right, TWO!
TAKE THAT, MONDAY!
And we wanted to kick off the week with something a little different this year…
So on Day 1, we have 2 Rafflecopters. On the first Rafflecopter, anybody can enter. The 2nd Rafflecopter is dedicated to ESSENTIAL WORKERS!
If you’re an essential worker, please enter BOTH RAFFLECOPTERS today! If you’re not an essential worker, we’d still love to honor you as a loyal blog reader, so make sure you enter our “main” Rafflecopter. If you are not an essential worker but know and love one, PLEASE SEND THEM OUR POST AND LET THEM ENTER THE ESSENTIAL WORKER RAFFLECOPTER THEMSELVES.
To keep things easier when the random winners are selected, we need the actual essential worker to enter themselves (please don’t enter on their behalf). Make sense? Two prizes…two Rafflecopters…two winners today and lots of love from US TO YOU!!
To enter to win, all you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post. The winners will be announced TOMORROW when a new giveaway is announced.

Please note, blog comments are NOT valid forms of entry.
CYBER MONDAY DEALS
I can’t believe this, but I’m naming a new MUST HAVE today on top of everything else! I got a handful of reader comments saying these leggings deserved MUST HAVE status, and I had to agree. I’ve been begging and pleading with y’all to try these leggings for a couple of weeks now, and then this weekend they went 25% OFF! (FYI: You can click HERE for other color options, they just aren’t on sale.)
I’m O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D. with the leggings.
These soft pocket lounge leggings are different than any other Zella pants I’ve ever tried. They are high waisted like the live in leggings, but the waistband is a soft ribbed material, and there are cute little cuffs at the bottom as well as “regular” pockets. They fit like a legging, but the style is more of a jogger style, AND I LOVE THEM.
They are even softer than normal leggings and even more comfortable than normal leggings. FOR REAL. And I’m telling you, the fit is adorable. Mine are the black and for size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I want to wear them every single day.

Here are some other times I’ve shown the newly named MUST HAVE leggings!
drawstring hoodie / sports bra / soft pocket lounge leggings/ similar KS huggie earrings / Edge Luxe sneaker
Here’s a good close up look.

Seriously, get them. Please just trust me!

My MUST HAVE denim jacket is NOW ON SALE! I named it a must have years and years ago, and I still wear it all the time! It’s ONLY $35.55 right now! I prefer the fit of the medium.
These small square crystal studs are ONLY $19! So sparkly, so shiny, and a perfect little stocking stuffer!
This gorgeous gloss trio is 50% OFF! Gift the entire set, or parcel them out into separate gifts.
This classic Tory Burch cross body bag is now 30% OFF. If you’ve been very good this year, maybe you can ask Santa for it.
This TB Miller hobo bag is 49% OFF. It’s a WOW bag.
What about a cozy and snuggly wubbly fleece pullover for 60% OFF? I love the little leopard piping.
Y’all know I love my Hunter rain boots, and this packable pair is 30% OFF! Love the grey accents.
These grey wedge sneakers are 56% OFF! I have this brand in camo and LOVE them. So comfy!
The most comfortable leopard flats EVER are 48% OFF! This is the lowest I have ever seen them!
This Stila Eye and Lip set is on sale for ONLY $16.
WHOAH! My Sorel boots are 40% OFF at Nordstrom! Those are Shay’s on the left and mine on the right. These boots are fully waterproof, have an elastic insert on the inside and asymmetrical zip closure on the outside. They are easy to get off and on, and they have a removable padded insole. I love the wedge heel and the chunky textured sole. They give me some height, elongate my legs, and are still incredibly comfortable. True to size for me, but after reading reviews online, it seems like if you are between sizes that you should go up a 1/2 size.
I wore them all over Boston last year and my feet were comfy, cozy, and dry the whole time!
Click HERE for my Sorels on the Sorel site. Click HERE for all Sorels on sale on the Sorel site (because there is a bigger selection than there is at Nordstrom).
The ALWAYS PLAN that I ordered for myself 2 weeks ago direct from the manufacturer (but is on serious backorder) is now at Nordstrom! They are price matching (with free shipping too), AND they ship out next week!
Here’s the official info: With the Always Pan, you can braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, serve and store all in one magical piece of revolutionary cookware. The exclusive nontoxic, nonstick ceramic coating is made without potentially toxic materials like PFOAs, PTFEs, other PFAs, lead, cadmium, toxic metals and nanoparticles. A nesting beechwood spatula with an integrated spoon rest completes the set and keeps counters tidy, too.
The lavendar is the only color left now, but I know it will go fast too because the steel and the spice sold out yesterday.

The sweater that I dedicated an entire post to last month is 20% OFF for CYBER MONDAY! Now, what I didn’t realize until now is that my rust sweater was from one maker and my cream sweater was from another. They are the same, so I’m linking the maker that has it on sale.
This sweater is soooooooooooooooo incredibly soft. It’s a super relaxed fit and even has a bit of a bat wing design, but it’s still very flattering! I’m wearing the small here and it’s still very roomy. It comes in 26 total colors, so there’s something for everybody.
I had a lot of people asking me about the fabric content last week since we couldn’t find it listed on the site. I didn’t know then, but I’ve since found an interior tag with the following info: 50% Viscose, 30% Nylon, 20% PBT. Good to know. If I had to guess, I would have guessed clouds and unicorn wings.
Cream outfit: sweater / large monogrammed disc necklace ON SALE/Amazon hoop earrings / stripe fold over clutch / gold party bangles ON SALE/raw hem ankle jeans / neutral booties ON SALE
Rust outfit: sweater / large monogrammed disc necklace ON SALE/ vintage gold earrings / gold party bangles ON SALE /raw hem ankle jeans / leopard sneakers
Here’s the sweater styled 5 ways!
LOFT is 50% OFF with FREE SHIPPING!
And some things are on SUPER SALE.
Check out these absolutely DARLING pajamas….ONLY $30 FOR THE SET TODAY! Sooooo cute for yourself or for a gift. I’m wearing a medium in the top and a small in the shorts. LOVE.
They look like they are a stiff cotton, but they’re not at all! They are soft and very comfy!
This cowl neck tunic sweater is ONLY $20! It’s a GORGEOUS color. It’s officially called “tamale red”, but I would describe it as “spice” or something similar. It’s so soft and warm.
I don’t always love a turtleneck, but I pretty much always love a cowl neck, and this is a great one. It’s long enough that it would definitely be leggings appropriate, but I like it with jeans too. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
cowl neck tunic sweater / statement hoop earrings ON SALE/ logo necklace ON SALE/jeans / UGG wedge booties ON SALE
This v neck tunic sweater is ONLY $20! It’s lightweight, slouchy (but not sloppy), and so comfy! It drapes beautifully and is very flattering. It runs big, so I’m in a small and still have lots of extra room. It’s meant to be slouchy, so I didn’t want to size down.
v neck tunic sweater / statement hoop earrings ON SALE/ logo necklace ON SALE/jeans / UGG wedge booties ON SALE
The sherpa is so warm and so cute, and I LOVE the stand up collar. And today it’s ONLY $25! I do wish it had pockets, but that’s my only complaint. If you have a long torso, this might be too short for you, but that’s never an issue for me!
Click HERE for other pullover color options.

Old Navy is 50% OFF EVERYTHING! I ordered some stuff a couple of weeks ago, and I found some real winners!
This oversized cozy textured tunic sweater is so soft, so comfy, and so cute. I really like the oversized ribbed collar and cuffs and the fact that it’s a little bit longer in the back. If you look closely, you can see there’s multicolor flecks running through the deep plum sweater. So pretty! For size reference, I’m wearing a medium and it’s definitely oversized, but I like the fit.
FYI: It’s almost sold out in “tall”, and the link defaults to that, so make sure you toggle over to REGULAR sizes.

This cozy boucle sweater definitely lives up to it’s name! It’s so cozy! I’m wearing the “soft pink”, but I would say that it definitely has lilac tones in it. It’s very soft, not scratchy at all, and it’s a flattering oversized fit. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
cozy boucle sweater / statement hoop earrings ON SALE/ logo necklace ON SALE/jeans / UGG wedge booties ON SALE
Okay. So I’m not in love with the color, BUT I LOVE THIS HOODIE SO MUCH THAT I DON’T CARE.
This sherpa half zip tunic hoodie is one of the softest and most cozy things I have ever put on my body. FOR REAL. The fit is generous, but it’s not unflattering. AND I’M TELLING YOU, IT’S SOOOOOO SO SOFT.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small. I will definitely be wearing this with leggings as well.

I’m talking about the kit more in depth tomorrow, I’m just hoping there will still be stock left!
Last Monday I posted a tarte makeup tutorial over on instagram stories. I saved it to my highlights, so I wanted to let y’all know to go check it out.

And you can’t forget about the new BIG MONOGRAMS!
I’ve had a camo tote for years in these same colors with the small monogram, and I loved it so much and carried it all the time. When these huge monograms came out, I wanted to get one in another pattern and color, but I just kept going back to this color combo and pattern because I love them both so much.
sweater / Wit and Wisdom jeans / leopard flats/ monogrammed tote

Pattie B says
Hi!! I found you through mix and math mama.
Alexis deZayas says
Best week ever!!
You’re not kidding about those leggings. They really are must haves. I bought the black last week on your recommendation, and I just bought a back up pair now that they are on sale. I considered buying 2 back ups, but I thought that might be overkill.
Elizabeth! A back up pair is pretty genius. Did we just become best friends? 😉 xoxo
Shay Shull says
Sheaffer!! Eight years later and it’s still my very favorite week!!! I’m so excited!!!!
This is so great! Selfishly I assume teachers are considered “essential workers,” so I entered both raffle copters. I apologize if I jumped to conclusions too soon! THANK YOU for starting off Monday with so much fun!!!
Absolutely! Good Luck, Maribeth! xoxo
I am a teacher, too. I consider myself an essential worker. 🙂
Kristin S says
I clicked to sign up for your and Shay’s emails but nothing popped up to actually sign up. Is it automatic? I’m a rule-follower. I follow both blogs but somehow missed daily emails all this time… Thanks.
Hi, Kristin! In today’s post, right below the last picture on the post with the camo bag, I give you a link to where to sign up by e-mail! If you click that link, it will take you to a page to sign up! xoxo
Wow! This is absolutely the best! So many great gift ideas. Thank you for sharing!
Just a heads up…the Moosoo cordless vacuum is $69.99 on EBay. It’s my favorite recent STMT buy. Just snagged two for Christmas gifts.
Thank you also to you and Shay for this fun tradition!
NO WAY!!!!!!!!! Adding that to my post right after carpool! Thank you so much for the heads up, Tiffany!!!! xoxo
Kimberly Clayton says
Are educators considered essential workers for your giveaway?
Yes! Good luck, Kimberly!
Love this ? you ladies are the best the whole year round!
Nicole Dhillon says
Thanks for the heads up about the MUST HAVE denim jacket!! My daughter is always stealing mine, so I picked her up one for Christmas!! YAY!!
That’s awesome, Nicole!!!!
Yes to the jogger leggings and the Sherpa pullover with the leopard pockets. Bought both as birthday gifts for myself and LOVE them.

Tara Thomas says
I’m an essential worker-In the operating room all day taking care of sweet babies! Wish I could stay at home but instead working while wearing a n95, regular mask,gown, gloves, face shield helmet! My sister and mom are essential medical workers as well. We primarily have FaceTime contact these days. We re all too high risk! Would love the prize since I’ll be able to see texts on my watch since I can’t access my phone!
Tara! My goodness, thank you so much for all that you do. And a huge thank you to your mom and sister too. I know that most of us have absolutely no idea what you are all going through, but please know that we are so incredibly thankful and that we are praying for you. So many virtual hugs to you! xoxo, Sheaffer
Got the Discovery Kit and another cleansing balm last night when I saw the deal had already gone live for the kit. I had just about run out of the balm. Wouldn’t want to be without it! Also got a Kendra Scott necklace and earrings on sale. My first Kendra Scott jewelry-yay! Will let my hubby gift them to me for Christmas?Definitely going to comb through today’s post to see what wonderful things you are highlighting. Thank you!
