Happy Thanksgiving to you! Grateful for so many things even though this year has been a challenge. Particularly grateful to each and every one of you who continue to read my blog, follow me on social, send me the sweetest messages and thankful for your support. I still pinch myself every now and then. Some days I cannot believe that I am able to do what I love (this blog). Happy to be able to connect with beauty junkies like myself around the world.
I’ve rounded up what I feel are the Best Black Friday Sales to shop this year. I went through my full list and edited it down to the sales I think are worth exploring. Since Black Friday and Cyber Week sales launched early I’ve already completed a big chunk of my holiday shopping. I have a few more people on my gift list this year that I still need to shop for though!
Happy weekend! Rounded up all the best Labor Day Beauty Sales I could find this year in case you’re shopping this weekend! Let me know if you have any other good ones to share in the comments. Also added a few for fashion and home (my Gleaming Primrose Mirror is on sale at Anthropologie).
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 is starting very soon and I have my initial wish list and recommendations roundup for you today! All the items for sale in Home, Women, Men, Activewear, Beauty Exclusives, Kids are up online for preview already. You can start previewing items online by category and start saving items to an online wishlist.
Nordstrom Card Holders have early access depending on tier. Key Dates for access are as follows:
Icon Early Access July 12 – 27
Ambassador Early Access July 14 – 27
Influencer Early Access July 16 – 27
Open to Everyone July 28 – August 8
I’ve gone through the Beauty Exclusives and Home Section and have split all the things on my radar by category. There’s a lot to sort through! I found it helpful to browse by category filter Makeup, Skincare, Fragrance, etc. to help me find things by interest and price.
I’m still in the process of narrowing down my shopping list! A lot will probably change depending on what I see in person in store next week. A number of you have asked me to flag things I find interesting or new/exclusive so I hope this helps!
This area is where most of my wishlist items are with the limited-edition colors, palettes and sets. I always buy the neutral MAC Lip Sets each year because they make the best colors. This year Tom Ford Beauty has two eyeshadow palette sets and I’m nearly certain I’m buying both the Cognac Rose Eye Color Quad Set and Coquette Eye Set.
I’m personally well stocked on staples from Laura Mercier, MAC and Bobbi Brown – but if you’ve been eyeing anything, they have some good value sets which makes it a nice time to try some luxury beauty!
For mirrors I own both the Riki and Simplehuman and I love both. To apply makeup I usually use the Riki because it’s easier to see the entire face while the Simplehuman one is magnified and better to see detail areas. My Favorite Makeup Mirrors reviewed in this blog post for more info/details.
Skincare value sets are always plentiful during the sale! I’m buying the Kopari Coconut Melt Duo for myself for sure 🙂 If you’re looking to splurge on La Mer or Sisley they often have good value sets where you can get a little more for your $$$. I love the Sisley Black Rose Infusion Cream for a lightweight water cream. They have a pretty good set this year!
If you don’t own a Nuface Device they have some good sets on sale! The NuFace White Trinity Kit is on sale for $199 (normally $339) although if it’s not in your budget right now I will say they usually have good sales and sets available during the holiday season too (so no need to rush).
I love the Diptyque and Jo Malone options this year! They have good variations this round! I love the Do Son Perfume + Hair Mist Duo (looks so cute). Andrew’s favorite hand soap from Le Labo Hinoki is available in a Jumbo Size.
Tom Ford has a Travel Size Soleil Fragrance Atomizer with 3 different scents in Soleil Blanc, Soleil Neige and Soleil Brulant. I think this is going to be one I pick up since I haven’t tried two of them and think it would be nice to have them in travel size format.
The one brand I get the most excited about every sale is Barefoot Dreams! I live in these blankets. I have one wrapped around me right now as I’m typing out this post. They have such good sales this time of year and I stock up for Christmas gifts. This year they’ve added a number of new patterns and colors which look really fun!
Over the winter we had some pretty cold weather here and Lucy finally got a lot of use out of her Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Dog Sweater (some of you might remember seeing it on stories). She’s a Jack Russell Terrier about 18-20 pounds. They recommend a Medium for her, but when I bought hers there was only Large Available. It works for her with room to spare, but she’s probably more of a Medium. They have a cute Leopard Pattern Dog Sweater and a Solid Version too.
I’ll have a haul post with swatches in the upcoming days after I’ve shopped the sale!

To recap the Sephora Spring Savings Event dates and savings by tier, use code OMGSPRING at checkout to redeem savings offer:
Clothing-wise I ordered the Rails Collins Jacket in Bone (30% off sitewide with code BFCM30). I have one in a green color and love it so decided to buy a second in a different color. I splurged on the new APL Shearling Slides (not on sale, but I could not resist!). They are having a Cyber Monday promo (excludes the slides) but if you buy 2 you get 1 pair free. I ordered a Duffle Bag from Lululemon for Andrew. I have a few other things on my radar that are marked down at some really good prices but haven’t ordered them quite yet from Alo Yoga.
The last thing I want to put on your radar is that Tory Burch is having a pretty good sale on their website. My Perry Bombe Bag is 30% off in most colors. The black seems to be the one that is excluded, but if you had your eye on other colors you can save during their Cyber event with code THANKS. I use this all the time and even have my eye on the Cloud Blue or New Cream. You can see my Perry Bombe Bag review here in case you are curious!
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a wonderful start to the holiday season. Black Friday and Cyber Week deals have already started! I’m rounding up all the Best Black Friday Sales and Deals I have on my radar. Many are already live right now and a few will be starting on Friday (dates noted below). Check back later this week because I’ll be able to share more info on some special launches this Friday!
Hope you find some great deals! I’ve already shopped from Anastasia Beverly Hills, La Mer and The Daily Edited. I ordered one of the Our Place Always Pans although it won’t ship until end of next month (but I’m still excited). I have my eye on some things for the home too!
