Okay, girls. This is it. Today is the day. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family and took time to thank God for all of your blessings!
But now? Well, now it’s Black Friday. Or Thursday. Whatever. And it’s time to SHOP OUR FACES OFF. And I have a SUPER COMPREHENSIVE post. We need to stock up on Christmas gifts, but we also need to get something for ourselves…because we deserve it. #yesmamwedo
I have some steps for you to follow to ensure Black Friday success: 1) GET SERIOUS. 2) Remember to breathe. 3) Repeat after me: It’s not about spending money, it’s about SAVING money. Repeat it like it’s a mantra. All of the ladies said “Amen”, and all of the husbands rolled their eyes….BUT WE DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE OR CARE BECAUSE THE DEALS ARE INCREDIBLE.
LOTS of great items are on SUPER SALE at Nordstrom. Click HERE to check it all out! I’m going to highlight some of my top favorites.
I was SO EXCITED to see that my favorite cashmere sweater is included in the sale! It’s so soft, not at all itchy, and you will have it in your closet for YEARS AND YEARS. I bought both the camel and black cashmere sweaters last year, and they were my most worn sweaters BY FAR. The sweater is truly worth it at full price, but it’s A TOTAL STEAL at 40% OFF!
Well, this year I added this adorable striped option to my collection.
You can’t get more classic that the black and camel sweaters from last year.
When they went on sale earlier this week, I grabbed another one. Because of course I did. THAT’S HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SWEATER. I now own 4. This hot pink is officially called “pink shock”, and it looks like this color is sold out right now in the crew neck version, but it’s still available in the v neck version that is linked in the next picture.
And you’re getting your first peek at my new UGG wedge booties that are NOW ON SALE! They are comfy, warm, so cute, and true to size.
The v neck version is ON SALE too. This is the perfect Christmas red, but it comes in 10 color choices.
I LOVE these booties. 33% OFF makes them quite a bit more affordable, and they would make a great gift.
The best blanket in the whole world is ON SALE! STOCK UP, ladies!
THIS BLANKET IS INCREDIBLE and it’s on sale right now for ONLY $28.90. It’s soooooooo soft, it launders perfectly, and it makes a fabulous gift for everybody on your list.
Need one more gift for somebody? GET THEM THE BLANKET. Need just one gift? GET THEM THE BLANKET.
Your kid. Your spouse. Your sister. Your mom. Your grandma. GET THEM THE BLANKET. Everybody will love it.
I’m telling you, THE BLANKET IS FANTASTIC.
And if you’re buying it for your own home, don’t just buy 1. Because people will fight over it. And not just the little people. So will you and your husband. This blanket is that good.
Lots of Natori bras are ON SALE! Here are my 2 favorites AND THEY ARE 62% OFF. WHAT THE HECK.
I know there are lots of devoted Hanky Panky people out there, and there’s several coveted Hanky Panky sets on sale (in both 3 and 5 packs)!
These Zella leggings are 62% OFF! WHOAH! I have a couple of pairs of these from year’s past in different colors, and I love them so much. They are super soft and very flattering.
Do you remember this outfit? The sweater and the SPANX are both on sale.
The tunic sweater looks great worn out, but it also looks great with a 1/2 tuck with jeans. And at 45% OFF, it’s an incredible deal.
Y’all know I ADORE THE SPANX FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS.
They are worth EVERY. DANG. PENNY. full price, but RIGHT NOW THEY ARE ON SALE!!!!! They are originally $98, but right now they are only $78.40 (while supplies last).
I’m telling you, if you want to feel like a million bucks, treat yourself to these leggings.
They are great quality, they wash well, they don’t stretch out, and perhaps most importantly – you will feel amazing in them! I size up to a medium in these (I wear a small in all other leggings), and they fit perfectly. I’m guessing a small would work too, but I really like the comfort level of the mediums, and I hear that most people size up. They are a couple of inches too long on my 5’4″ frame, but I only wear them with tall boots, so that’s not a problem. And that’s great news for you tall girls that would like to wear them with heels! If I were to buy them again, I would buy a petite medium.
They suck you in and totally slim you down, while still allowing you to breathe. It’s a thing of wonder.

I was given a little bit of intel earlier this week, and I saw that the following items I’ve featured previously were going to be ON SALE!
THESE AMAZON DEALS ARE SUPPOSED TO GO LIVE FRIDAY MORNING!
How adorable is this striped sweater? I’ve got it in a flat lay right now because I accidentally ordered an x-small. #oops But look how cute it is! And it’s ON SALE! It comes in several other stripes and lots of solids as well.
This polka dot blouse is the quintessential office blouse. It drapes beautifully and has a pretty neckline that’s not too deep for office wear. I like it with jeans too, but it really is a great top for work. And you can’t beat the price.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium, but I need a small.
This v neck sweater is a closet staple that everybody needs! It’s a thin material, which makes it perfect for layering, but it’s not so thin that it needs a cami. It’s 100% merino wool, but I didn’t find it to be itchy at all.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
This bateau neck sweater is soooo soft and this red is vibrant and gorgeous. It can be easily dressed up or down, and would look great with a nice pair of black slacks or a pencil skirt for the office. This sweater looks like it’s worth at least twice what I paid for it. And now it’s ON SALE! For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
Next up, we have this stupid cozy pullover!
Y’all know I love a stand up collar, and this collar really delivers.
I find that it’s very well made and worth the money. The outside is that wubbly fleece that is so popular right now, but the inside is different. The only way I can describe it is that it’s like a silky t shirt material. Whatever it is, it’s amazing. I really love this dusty rose color. I’m wearing a small and it’s a little snug. I think I would be more comfortable in a medium.

These statement hoop earrings are in my Top 3 favorite earrings OF ALL TIMES. The gold is brassy and not shiny (which I love), and they are lightweight even though they are chunky and big. They make quite a statement and you could wear them with a sweatshirt or a little black dress!
These blingy hoop earrings are some new favorites of mine.
These small huggie earrings are chunky and a pretty brushed brass. I wear them often if I have on a pendant necklace (so they don’t compete) or if I’m wearing athleisure.
This star necklace has been a favorite of mine since this summer. It’s so delicate and feminine.
LOFT is 50% OFF with FREE SHIPPING!
I MEAN! Let’s start off with a bang with these absolutely DARLING pajamas. 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!
First of all, this cowl neck tunic sweater is 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.
This v neck tunic sweater is 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.
I love the wide stripes and the colors in this striped sweater. There’s a little bit of metallic thread running thru it, which makes it extra fun. If you are super sensitive to itchy sweaters, this one might not be for you, but it doesn’t bother me at all. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
The sherpa is so warm and so cute, and I LOVE the stand up collar. 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!

When I saw these plaid leggings at LOFT, I immediately thought of this sweater. I knew they would be a great way to dress the sweater up.
These plaid leggings aren’t as stretchy as typical leggings, but I still feel like they are quite comfortable. The waist is elastic, so you just pull them on like a regular pair of leggings, they just don’t have quite as much give. I really like the plaid pattern and think they are a great fun option to have in your closet. For size reference, I ended up going with the medium petite. I wanted a little more room in the waist, and I wanted some ankle to show between the bottom of my pants and the top of my booties.
This flecked poncho sweater is totally going to be a wardrobe staple for me, I just know it. For size reference, I’m wearing an xs petite, so it definitely runs big because I’ve NEVER been an xs petite in my life. It’s not long enough for leggings, but I wanted it specifically for skinny jeans.
I was introduced to a new boutique jewelry site last month, and I started wearing this disc necklace and this bangle set on repeat. Both are ON SALE!
The monogrammed disc necklace is so pretty and would make an excellent personalized gift. It’s over $25 OFF!
The gold party bangles are so fun, especially in the summer, and right now they are just under $20.
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.
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.
Before I tell you the sales today, I want to give you a heads up to WAIT UNTIL MONDAY if you want to grab The Discovery Kit. I just might have some insider information, and the price on Monday just might be incredible. #winkwink So sit tight if you want to grab a Discovery Kit.
But if you want anything else, go ahead and shop away!

How much fun is this sweater!!!
It’s a beautiful camel color and it is incredibly cozy.
And talk about a dramatic sleeve! The sleeves are pleated, poofy, and amazing.
In addition to the sleeves, the cable knit design is perfection. The design is so classic, but the sleeves give this classic sweater a wonderful modern twist! The fitted hem defines the waist and makes the large proportions of the sleeves not too overwhelming. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I went for the black, but it also comes in ivory, camel, and wine. The bodice of the sweater isn’t boxy like so many sweaters are right now, so if you prefer a more fitted sweater, you’ll be happy. The drama is in the exaggerated ruffle sleeves. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium, but I would prefer a small.
This mock neck dolman sweater is soft, thick and incredibly cozy. It’s a very relaxed fit, but I love that it’s slouchy without being sloppy. It just feels great on. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Once again, this baby is CRAZY SOFT. It skims the body without hugging it at all and is a perfectly relaxed fit. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in this one.

This cardi has a relaxed open front and a shawl collar. It’s oversized and is so easy to really wrap up in. It’s soft, cozy, and just plain pretty. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
The long sleeve tee is what my layering tee dreams are made of. It’s nice and thick, it’s fitted, and it’s got a bit of stretch to it. It’s PERFECT for layering under sweaters and jackets. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
The pattern! The colors! The ruffle sleeves! The little ruffle hem!
I LOVE IT ALL.
This blouse is DARLING.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
And last, but certainly not least, I’m in love with this balloon sleeve cardigan. First of all, the “mauve plum” color is gorgeous. I think it looks like a bright berry hue, and it’s so pretty.
It’s a longer cardigan that covers the bum, which I know so many of you love. For size reference, I’m wearing a small. I would actually suggest sizing down, because I’m quite sure an x-small would work on me too.

A couple of years ago (in July of 2018), I shared with y’all how I shopped ebay for my Dyson certified refurbished hair dryer. Two and a half years later, I still love my hair dryer, and I’ve been 100% pleased with my purchase! I’ve never had even 1 minor problem with the hairdryer, and that purchase has given me confidence that buying “certified refurbished” for myself as well as for gifts is a viable option. I love that when I buy certified refurbished items, I can do so knowing that I’m saving myself money AND I’m being eco-conscious. That’s a WIN WIN!
Check out some of the certified refurbished items that ebay is offering right now! I grabbed a new air fryer for my family (we use ours all the time and needed to upgrade to a bigger one), and there are several things on this collage that I know my people would love. Chris owns a Bose speaker just like this (they are on my gift guides every year) and Carter has and loves the Bose wireless headphones.
When clicking around on the links below, make sure the item says “certified refurbished”. Sometimes these items sell out so quickly that they might be replaced with a new item, so look out for that.
- Kitchenaid Mixer / 2. air fryer / 3. Bose wireless headphones / 4. speed hand blender / 5. indoor smokeless grill / 6. electric tea kettle / 7. espresso machine / 8. Bose Bluetooth speaker / 9. circular saw / 11. Apple MacBook Air / 12. Roomba / 13. Dewalt Combo Kit
You should totally check out ebay for all of their SPOTLIGHT DEALS too!
And remember, if you buy certified refurbished you can save yourself some money AND help the environment while gifting your people items you know they’ll love!
Gibson is 20% off the entire site! I think the savings are automatically applied at checkout, but I’ll update the post if there’s a code.
You can never go wrong with a Gibson piece in their famous cozy fleece material. It’s incredibly soft and comes in 4 colors. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
And because it’s the year of the jogger sets, look how cute this one is! I love the light grey and pink together. I’m wearing a small in both.
The ribbon drawstring trim makes this set different than any of my other jogger sets. It’s such a nice design touch that really elevates the set, but it’s the cozy ribbed knit that truly sets it apart from any other jogger set I’ve ever tried.
Even though sets like this are meant to be a relaxed fit, I often feel that the material is a little more clingy than I like and highlights little lumps and bumps. BUT NOT THIS SET! The ribbed material makes it so forgiving!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small. If you want a little bit more of a fitted look, definitely size down.
I’m going to call this a light sweater. But it’s not super sweatery, if that makes sense.
It’s similar to the light fleecy fabric that we’ve come to know and love from Gibson, BUT KICKED UP A NOTCH. It’s incredibly soft and cozy, and it just feels really great on.
The sweater comes in 2 different stripes, 2 different leopards (one bold and one neutral), grey, and black. The fit is awesome. It’s not boxy, but it’s not clingy either. It just kind of skims the body. AND LOOK AT THE SUBTLE FEMININE GATHERS AND TINY LITTLE PUFF AT THE SHOULDER. The banded cuffs and hem are super cute too.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
And OH MY WORD at the pajamas. I love the color and the luxe look. AND THEY ARE SOOOO SOFT.
I’m wearing a small, but they are oversized, so I would definitely recommend sizing down if between sizes.

I truly love this palette. It’s so convenient to have the blush, highlighter, and bronzer all in 1 compact.
While the matte bronzer warms your complexion, the radiance luminizer creates a lit-from-within glow, and the brightening blush restores your natural flush of color.
Those aren’t my words, but I 1000% agree with them, and I couldn’t have said it better myself.
I’m swearing by their CC cream now too, so head to the post to read all about it!

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.
That’s it for Black Friday, Ladies! PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT WITH YOUR FAVORITE SCORES!!! And I don’t know about you girls, but I’m exhausted. I PROMISE YOU MY HEART RATE WAS ELEVATED. Yes M’am. I feel quite sure I worked off the dressing…and the mashed potato casserole…and the rolls…and the skillet corn. Let’s all take a minute for the skillet corn. #itdeservesrespect
I hope you snagged some amazing deals and have a wonderful weekend. And make sure you take time to REMEMBER YOUR BLESSINGS!
