THE LIST || ESSELLESSE BLACK FRIDAY PICKS • 2019

all the sales I'm personally shopping

Happy Black Friday!! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

As I chose my picks, I wanted to share brands that I truly love vs just announcing sales. These are the ones I have my eye on and will be shopping myself {some I already have!!}

I personally like to use Black Friday for things like outerwear {esp faux fur.. stay tuned for tomms post!}, denim, house goods, & if I’m low on something beauty-wise, I’ll restock.

That said, it’s just a sale, just because it’s Black Friday doesn’t mean you HAVE to shop. Sure, the discounts are great but again, IT’S JUST A SALE! Don’t overbuy or overspend just to avoid FOMO or the sake of shopping it. my advice: shop with intention and get things you truly want or need vs just getting it because it’s on sale and looks cute. I’ll say it again: IT’S JUST A SALE.

Ok I’ll get off my soapbox now & see myself out lol

here are the brands I’m shopping this Black Friday / Cyber Monday

reformation:

shocker right? Y’all know I am head over heels for Reformation & here is everything on my list. I personally love stocking up on jeans & outerwear! Here is a look at my fav picks from their Fall 2019 collection. I also LOVE their skinny jeans: the High & Skinny jean is AMAZING and Erik loves the Serena High Skinny Crop jean on me.

express

50% off site wide, including clearanceshop here

I love Express to pick up basics – you can find REALLY good deals from shopping their clearance. I eprsonally love their “pull on” pants – they look like trousers but feel like leggings. They also make some of the best outerwear – seriously, the coats are next level. One of my fav Black Friday scores of all time a few years back was their quilted velvet puffer jacket {see it here – out of stock}! Below is everything I’m eyeing… lots of mocknecks & velvet!

glossier:

20% off site wideshop here

Black Friday is one of the only times Glossier does a sale so I’m going to stock up! I’ll be picking up their Rich Priming Moisturizer & colorslide liner in Brack! If you need some suggestions: my absolute fave Glossier product is Cloud Paint in Dusk & Boy Brow in Brown! I also love Cloud Paint in Storm; Colorslide in Cash Salad, Early Girl, & Magic Carpet; Haloscope in Quartz {I also like to wear it on my lips}; Birthday Balm dot com & Berry Balm; Lash Slick; & Vinyl Lip in Pony & Bank.

BY TERRY / Dermstore

by terry: 50% off select items here

dermstore: 30% off with code DSGIFT

Y’all KNOW I AM OBSESSED with By Terry Baume de Rose. Ready for a confession? I only buy it during Labor Day or Black Friday. It’s so good but just so freaking expensive for lip balm! That said, it really is next level. Not only does it smell amazing but it has completely recontoured & regenerated my lips. I am vehemently anti fillers & botox for myself & only myself {this is just me! you do you!} so I really love regenerating products that truly WORK. I’m also tossing in the Baume de Rose lip scrub this time around 🙂 I’m sharing both sales so you can pick and choose but each one listed below is the best price

byterry

tinted baume de rose in Toffee Cream {one of my fav lip products of all time. THE most perfect nude balm}

baume de rose body scrub

anti-aging blush in sexy pink

baume de rose lip crayon in sunny nude or candy pink {I’m a nude gal}

dermstore

the original Baume de Rose

baume de rose crystalline tube

baume de rose scrub

baume de rose crayon

baume de rose hand cream

blogger sales

finally I’ll make a separate post on these but I wanted to include “blogger sales” aka the not so glam stuff like domains, hosting, etc. If your 2020 resolution is to start a blog, get these now! I always get asked how to set up a blog and I GET IT. Domains & hosting can be a whole different language. My advice? Hire someone from Fiverr (should be no more than $30) & they do it for you!

domains: godaddy domains up to 90% off

hosting: bluehost up to 60% off

fiverr: easy freelance for tasks! search: “hosting set up” or “domain set up” or even “bluehost”, “wordpress” (you will want wordpress.org, not wordpress.com – post for another day), “website set up”… you get the jist of it

themes: Bluchic {30% off w code BC30SALE} & Empress {unsure if they are having a sale yet though} have the best themes!

lightroom presets: I wish I could offer a sale on mine but I’m still building my site and it’s been a PROCESS! For now, click here & join my mailing list because everyone on it will get deep discounts and free presets for early subscribers. Other presets I love are Filtergrade {20% off w code BF2019 – I really like Sand & Waves, & Sam Dameshek}, Tezza {not on sale yet but she recently lowered her prices! I love her Vintage & Nature ones but if you get 2, you might as well get the whole set}, & A Color Story {obsessssedddd w the Wildflower Bloom collection!}

happy shopping!!
