A TOTALLY RAD BLACK FRIDAY SALES GUIDE • 2018

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a great one.

Of course, I had to share my favourite black friday sales! & hopefully they aren’t your basic b sales.

You know the ones, the ones on EVERY SINGLE BLOG.

Basically, I wanted to show the sales I am personally shopping – as well as what I’m getting & why. I hope you find something you love. Let me know any others you are shopping!

I have them listed in apparel, beauty, home, & for the blog.

In fact, when people tell me in the Fall they are starting a blog & ask for advice, a big one I have is to wait to buy things like filters and such on Black Friday – they almost always go on sale and the sales are always worth it.

Happy shopping!! x

apparel

REFORMATION  shop here

30% off everything!

It’s no secret how much I love Reformation & I try to take advantage of every sale they have. I love this sustainable brand & their jeans are some of the best on {& for} the planet. Some things I’ve been eyeing are these jeans, this fisherman sweater, this coat, & this dress.

EXPRESS  shop here

50% off everything! + $20 sweaters

SCORE! Express is one of my favourite stores. I like to stock up on their basics {like these super flattering, butter soft high waisted black jeans – in fact, I wore them yesterday} & especially love their coats. Last year, I scored the dopest velvet puffer jacket & this year I have my eye on this. I also love this velvet zip up & this velvet dress is AMAZING on, especially over  mockneck.

publicspace.xyz shop here

their only sale of the year {& i think ever?}

I’m obsessed with this brand. It’s vaporwave & retro and makes me feel. They never have sales so def take advantage. The things I’m scooping up are this algebra hoodie {SO GOOD, RIGHT?!}, this pocari sweat zip up, & this l u x u r y hoodie  They recently made waves for making that La Croix swimsuit – it’s sold out, but if we are being honest, I love like this one better. I also love this cheeky “instagram” hoodie… esp because it’s been a thorn in my side lately lol

WILDFLOWER CASES  shop here

20%-70% off + free shipping

Wildflower cases are some of my FAV! I’ve been rocking them lately. Not only are they so cute, but super high quality, durable & looks great in a mirror selfie lol I’m going to get this iridescent one and this cherry one! It’s not on sale, but I also love the Emma Chamberlain one, with all the 80s/90s vibes! It’s the one I have in almost all of my stories and always get questions on.

beauty

GLOSSIER  shop here

20% off

OKAY THIS IS HUGE. Glossier legit never goes on sale so absolutely take advantage of this. I’m a big Glossier girl myself. Things I really love are their Lash Slick, Priming Rich Moisturizer {my current fav to use at night}, Coconut & Birthday balm dot com, Boy Brow, & Cloud Paint {I love Beam & Dawn}.

BETTER SHEA BUTTER  shop here

Free samples of either Mango, Cocoa, or Shea butters with code NOVSAMPLE4U

This brand is a new discovery of mine but I’m obsessed! They recently sent me some of their items and they are SO GOOD that I just ordered more. These would also make a great gift. I HIGHLY recc the whipped shea butter in peppermint & vanilla {also comes in lavender} – the smell is SO luxurious & it just melts on your skin. The mango butter is a GAME CHANGER – it will transform your skin and make it look years younger. I’ve been putting it on after the shower and before bed. I’m obsessed & can’t wait to play with this more and make some recipes.

LAWLESS   shop here

40% off

I am obsessed with Lawless. The products are super natural & clean af but the quality is just high af. The Woke Up Like This foundation is phenomenal – a must if you like a dewy finish & I can’t get enough of the matte lippies! My current favs are Parker & George, but I also have Romeo, Cameron, Brad, & Ryan and truly love them all. The colours are so flattering on everyone!

SUMMER FRIDAYS  shop here

20% off with code FRIYAY

I am a huge fan of both their Overtime & Jet Lag mask... even better when on sale! They both are fantastic but I especially love the Overtime mask. It smells like a pumpkin spice latte and leaves your skin looking amazing. Highly recc!

CHARLOTTE TILBURY  shop here

50% off gifts

I am obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury. Every one of her products are just off the charts good. It’s pricy but worth it. The lip liners are some of the best on the market, with the power to truly reshape your lips & I promise, with her palettes, you won’t need another one. I use her eyeshadow palette solely these days! I am also eyeing this lip kit inspired by British royalty!

DERMSTORE shop here

30% off with code “DSFRIDAY”

Honestly, if you buy anything here, be SURE to pick up the BY TERRY Baume de Rose. It’s expensive but so worth it & you can take advantage of the sales. I’m buying this crayon & gloss for on the go application… and if we are being completely honest, I’m HIGHLY CONSIDERING picking up this huge ridiculous 25g. I use this religiously & will make a full blown blog post on it, but long story short, it recontoured & plumped up my lips. My lips look bigger & more youthful than ever with it and I will never be without this.

home

Urban Outfitters ♡ shop here

buy one get one 50% off

I LOVE Urban Outfitters HOME line. It’s one of the raddest & I love that it’s so retro. I’ve been eyeing this velvet soft seating chair in blue for our solarium {& future youtubes!} as well as this rug for my office. Their kitchen stuff is rad, & in fact, that’s where I usually find a lot of my holographic cutlery! It’s also where I got my record player too.

CB2 ♡ shop here

15% off with code SAVE15 & free shipping

I’ve been eyeing this mirror for my bathroom for quite some time so I finally snagged it! CB2 has some of the raddest stuff and if we are being honest, one of the most annoying things about shopping there is that they always charge shipping. I also picked up some holographic champagne flutes & coffee mugs while I was at it too #fortheinsta 😉

world market ♡ shop here

40% off furniture with code FURNDEAL
+ buy one get one 50%

I feel like World Market is such an under the radar gem. Every single time, I always find the cutest apartment decor. We recently got this mirror and loving it. They have a ton of different sales going on right now so I recc exploring the website!

Technologic

TEZZA  shop here

20% off

Tezza’s filters are some of the best I’ve seen on the market. Seriously, her edits are next level. I plan on picking up the vintage set. I can’t wait to play with this!

Bluchic  shop here

30% off with code BC30CYBER

Bluchic has really awesome, user friendly blog layouts. In fact, it’s what I started my blog on back in 2014. You can’t go wrong with any of them and they are super customizable! Whenever people ask me where to start, layout-wise, when it comes to blogging, I always send them here. If we are being honest, I always buy a theme or two to have on deck in case I want to switch things up or help someone make a blog. I like the Olivie & Rachel a lot!

FILTERGRADE  shop here

all on sale! up to 50% off

Filtergrade is another rad stop for lightroom filters. Eventually, I want to make my own {would you want?} so they help me learn. I have the Noel Alva & Maddie Welk ones & love it. This year, I’m eyeing the Sam Dameshek filters – I love following him on instagram & his retro style.

You find so much local talent and can connect and create content with that specific local vibe - in fact, I make a point to shoot with someone local at least once. That’s how I connected with @future_vizion - not only is he BEYOND talented {seriously, check out his profile}, he has such a unique eye and perspective... not to mention it’s kind of totally rad making friends around the world, especially in a city I’m so passionate about! #slstokyo
