Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend. I’m always ready to start a new week after a long holiday weekend. It’s nice to get everyone off to school/work and get back to work myself. We also had some serious snow roll in last night so both boys are home from school today, but I’m still hoping to get mostly caught up on work and doing a few gift guides and posts here on the blog – but I’m sure I’ll get suckered into going out and playing in the snow for a while too!
I’m actually mostly done with my Cyber Weekend shopping and, if we’re being honest here, I did most of my shopping for myself. Because my birthday falls right before Black Friday/Cyber Monday, I save my birthday money for the sales and it makes it look like I shopped A LOT. So, by request, I’m sharing what I bought, as well as what I think are the best Cyber Monday sales that I recommend checking out today:
What I Bought
Sephora // I’ll do a little haul video on Instagram when all of this stuff comes but I watched a few beauty tutorials from my favorite beauty blogger to follow, Lindsey, and ended up with a full cart at Sephora including: this palette (which you’ve probably seen everywhere now), this mascara, this highlighter/bronzer/blush palette, this brush and a few more things!
- Today at Sephora when you spend $45 you get a sample bag and when you spend $90 you get to pick one of 3 free bags with travel-sized products, samples and more. See what you can chose from here.
Nordstrom // I’ve been wanting to shop more from the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collection so I did that over the weekend. I got this skirt, sweater and belt to go together and then this sweater and pants to go together. They are all pieces I can mix and match and I’m excited to try a few new combinations!
- Right now when you spend $250, you’ll get $50 to put towards your next purchase (it’s valid starting in January). Plus a lot of items are marked down up to 60% off including Spanx leggings, kids boots and shoes (as gifts or necessities!) and this little cookie cutter/spatula set from Anthro home that would be a cute gift for neighbors or friends!
T3 // I have needed a new curling iron for so long. The one I’m using is by Hot Tools and I’m pretty sure I stole it from my mom at least 5 years ago. So I got a new one from T3 over the weekend! It was already marked down and now you get 25% off site wide with the code MONDAY18
- I also have the Whirl Trio wand, which is great (slightly tricky to learn to use, but great) and I’m considering going back for a hair dryer!
Sales to Shop Today
Neiman Marcus // Earn gift cards up to $750 depending on how much you spend with the code GC4YOU. I bought this Rag & Bone top for myself and I love these little jars from Dylan’s Candy Bar for hostess gifts or for the kids to take to their teachers and coaches.
Michaels // I need more stuff for my tree and since I discovered that you could order online and pick up in store, Michaels is my go-to spot. Today you get 30% off your order when you buy online and pick up in store – even on sale items.
BURU // Treat yourself with $50 off of $150! Get this skirt to wear to the first holiday party on your schedule in December, or the green version of the perfect striped tee for casual outings. Also as a gift to yourself or a mom in your life, the Vive La Mere tees and sweaters are perfect!
J.Crew // Everything at J.Crew is still 50% off with an extra 60% off of sale styles! If you’ve been waiting to buy this coat (I waited like 2 years for it), do it now, you won’t regret it – limited size are left in all the colors so hurry. I also got this little puffer coat for both boys and I love these little festive flats for myself!
Amazon // We use our Echo Spots as alarm clocks and they look nice, as well as work really well! They are $40 off and have the same Alexa capabilities, plus you can do video calls with them. Our boys are getting the Kids Fire Tablets, which are also on sale for $40 off – and they come with a case!
BaubleBar // Everything is 35% off with the code CYBER35. I bought these earrings already but I also think these wreath earrings are festive and fun for the season. Also these bows are so cute – I especially love them in red.
