Your Complete Guide To Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales (+ A Few Giveaways!)

The biggest few days of shopping in the year – Black Friday through Cyber Monday – are here. I’ve spent hours sifting through sales, and have put together this post for your browsing ease. Here, you’ll find top sales to shop and picks from each (focused on my tried and true favorite stores/designers), plus some outfit photos that feature sale items, if you’re a visual person like me. 

I hope this post makes shopping a bit more enjoyable for you, because let’s be honest, these few days can be overwhelming. So, whether you’re looking to check off people from your list, or perhaps buy a few things to treat yourself (Guilty as charged!), I’ve got a great roundup below. (SORRY to go overboard with picks, but oh my gosh, there are SO many good finds!)

OH! And as a thank you to readers, I’m doing two giveaways over the next few days! First, I’m personally giving away $100 to one lucky reader, to help you shop your favorite sales on Cyber Monday! Second, on Sunday I’m participating in an Instagram giveaway that’ll give the winner AND a friend of their choosing each $100 Nordstrom gift card. All the details are at the end of this post!

        You only get something they need, something they want, something they can wear, and something they can read. That’s it! Well we do stockings too but that’s all $5 and under things. 🙂

          1. katie d

            YAY! I seriously didn’t know it was a thing until I started my book business last year. It’s definitely hard to narrow it down, but it makes sure every gift is thoughtful. Happy shopping!

    Honestly, I’m really excited to shop for myself this season.. I’ve lost 30 pounds since the end of May.. following a Keto diet and at the end of August after being sick for a few weeks I found out I have Chrones disease.. SO I’m finally feeling and looking great! I’ve always taken care and supported everyone from my kids to my parents…. and NOW.. Im going to spoil myself with deals and steals and invest in myself for once.. I know this sounds selfish.. but after 23yrs of marriage.. and investing everything I have into my family.. I’m going to do what my 22yr old daughter says I should do.. ” mom, be selfish” and put yourself first ! WE r ok!” .. So, if I win .. Im planning on buying myself something fun, cool, and stylus to wear! Thank you!
