Black Friday Shopping Inspiration: Suggestions in Every Category!

Makeup for which I am thankful! Breakdown with links to reviews, later on in this post. 

Happy Thanksgiving; I hope yours was wonderful! This week, we’ve been enjoying the wonderof the Central Coast of CA and San Francisco (initially discussed HEREand even though I am but a stone’s throw away from some of the best shopping in the world, I will also be indulging in some online orders to streamline the process.

For the past few days, the web has been abuzz with a plethora of promotions dedicated to the ineffable Black Friday shopping extravaganza; some have even already begun!  Although some of us embrace the thrill of traditional shopping on the 27th–dense crowds and long lines can be marginally invigorating when coupled with the thrill of the hunt–there is a certain sense of peace in choosing one’s spoils from the comfort of a computer, ideally with a frothy latte at arm’s reach.  

To assist in savvy navigation of the sales, I have compiled a list of my favorite retailers, replete with discount code details (where applicable) and my curated choices:

Tom Ford Lips and Boys 2016 Collection. 

First off, the *Tom Ford Lips & Boys 2016 Collection officially launches…I shared swatches of all 25 new shades HERE last week and, after extensive testing, I’ve determined that my top four hues are the bold coral matte Cristiano, matte baby pink Anderson, lush matte beige Evan and metallic rose gold beige Snowdon.  Check out the offerings for your favorites at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Sephora and Bloomingdales

DEPARTMENT STORES (Beauty + Fashion)

  • Bloomingdale’s (Buy More Save More…15% off $100-$199 and 20% off $200 or more)
    • Nespresso Lattissima Touch Espresso Maker...if you are a coffee lover, this is incredible, if you are one who cannot get enough frothy milk on your coffee, this is a MUST.  We bought ours from Bloomies last year and use it daily…the fact that is it 44% off simply cannot be ignored.  Ours makes us ridiculously happy.
