Typically, I am not a huge Black Friday sale shopper, but with a baby on the way, a new house, and celebrating some big family birthdays this holiday season, our list is very long this year. Thanks to the sales starting early I have already checked off a few things I have been wanting/needing (nest thermostats, dyson hair dryer, and a Frame TV) and some really good deals on gifts! My wish list looks very different than in years past: think cozy pajamas (I will be spending the next few months in), a dining room table, and mostly just necessities for baby boy. Here are the sales I am shopping and a few deals that shouldn’t go unnoticed. I will be adding more sales to this post as the weekend goes on, but some are too good to pass up early!

How did this happen? We are only ten days away from Christmas and less than a week away from spending the holidays in Scottsdale with my family.  Our holiday schedule is packed full of birthdays and holiday parties, but I am looking forward to some down time with the fam and watching all the Christmas movies. I’m not going to lie, my tv has been on an endless loop of the Hallmark channel the last few weeks.

I made it back last night after a wonderful nine days away (mostly from my computer) and my pups––oh, I missed them so much. Last week we went skiing in Vail, Colorado with some of our best friends and then I flew to Scottsdale for a quick weekend to celebrate one of my besties baby to be.  It is always so good to be back with my gals and the fam bam.

Fleece Pullover | 10. Ice Roller (what I got all my gals this year) | 11. Statement Earrings | 12. Ornament 


Every year my best gals get together for a little holiday party and gift exchange. It’s one of my favorite things about the holidays because I always love finding fun, unique gifts I know my gals will love.  Whether it’s a cute hair tie or hair accessories, glass straws, or an ice roller (this year’s gift), I try to surprise them with something they will use all year long.

Vince Slipdress and Tan Sweater


Vince Silk Slipdress and SweaterA couple weeks ago I asked y’all what you wanted to see this holiday season and the most requested was a curated list of my personal favorite cyber week sales. This time of the year can be so overwhelming (especially with all of the amazing sales!), so going into Thanksgiving week having game plan, check list, and budget is essential for staying on track.

Oh boy, get ready the sales are soo good this year…

*I will be updating this list as the sales come in, but these early sales are too good not to share ;)

Gift Guide Wish List


Gift Guide Wish List

Throughout the year I keep a running wish list of items that I dream of owning (some big, some small).  Around the holidays I  treat myself to one thing on my list that I had been lusting over all year long.

1. Heart Earrings | 2. Gucci Princeton Mules | 3. Glow Serum | 4. Cozy Sweater (under $100) | 5. Essential Oil Diffuser | 6. Blanket | 7. Silk PJs | 8. Dyson Hair Dryer | 9. Watch | 10. Sweater | 11. Golden Goose Sneakers | 12. Hunting Season Bag

I thought it would be fun to share my wish list to hopefully give you some ideas to add to list for Santa this year.

STATEMENT EARRINGS: I have had heart eyes on Rebecca de Ravenel earrings since she launched her famous le bons bons a few years ago. These statement hearts would be perfect for holiday parties.

ALL ABOUT OILS: I have to admit ever since Liz started posting about how essential oils changed her and her families lives, I have been completely hooked! I really want to get my own set and start playing around with the different mixtures! This diffuser would look pretty good in our kitchen if you ask me :)

IF YOU’VE BEEN REALLY GOOD: So I haven’t been this good this year, but I think you deserve a Cartier ;)

TIME SAVERS: So I really do love my T3 hair dryer, but this Dyson is really compelling. The fact that it dries your hair in about three minutes is super enticing.

This year has been filled with lots of laughs and joy. Most of you know from this post, but I was so lucky to spend all summer with my bestie, Mackenzie in Nantucket. She moved back to Connecticut last year, but we found ways to see each other and catch up throughout this year.  This past weekend she came to visit,  so I though it would be fun to take a moment out of the crazy holiday season to bring her a little joy with a gift from LOFT and a coffee date.

On Ali: Sweater / Scarf / Jeans / Boots

On Mackenzie: Long sleeve tee / Scarf / Pants / Flats
