I’m going to tell you a little bit about my Black Friday finds. The last time I went to visit my niece and nephew they had just gotten a bunch of spooky stuff on sale after Halloween. My nephew hid all of the stuff and then revealed it to us one by one, while also letting us know the price and how much the discount was.
He is 5. And that inspired me.
So I will do the same for you as I tell you about my Black Friday finds. Or like, the finds I actually purchased that were delivered to me last week.
Keep in mind I did all of this shopping online because going to a crowded store and being close to people I don’t know and having to speak to strangers that work there is my worst nightmare.
Apologies for not writing for a couple of days. I drank too much wine on Saturday afternoon and it completely altered the trajectory of my existence.
I LOVE these hair products. I feel like I’m in a personal golden age with my hair, where I kind of feel okay with it, and I think Amika products have made a huge difference. They smell INCRED but beyond that I have gotten actual compliments on my hair which has never happened in the history of time.
In the last few months I have almost exclusively used the velveteen dream shampoo and conditioner. I even finally got little travel containers so I could bring this stuff to the gym with me when I get ready there.
The curl corps defining cream is one of my favorites and I have also used this almost exclusively for the last few months. They also have a hair mask I like and some shiny smoothing stuff I like to keep in my bag to put in my hair when it gets fuzzy. Or I just use hand lotion to smooth my hair. LIFE HACK.
They had some kind of bananas sale where all of the stuff they have with their old packaging/branding was 40% off and I was like yes plz I’ll take one of each. This was the greatest of my Black Friday finds, I think.
Even better news, the order came with a little bag to put stuff in and stickers.
You guys know I love ban.do. Don’t have to tell you twice. They had 30% off of everything! Woo!
First, I asked Santa for a desk for my room so I can use it when I work from home for regular work and also do my own WERK there. In the hopes of receiving said desk from the North Pole in a few weeks I got some desk accessories as part of my Black Friday finds.
I got two gold paper holder things, a weekly desktop calendar with the days of the week, and a pencil/pen/other shit holder with googly eyes on it. I have this googly eye pencil cup at my regular work desk too and I am OBSESSED.
I also took advantage of this sale to get some skin stuff. I’m trying to fix my skin from getting so red and blotchy all the time and looking completely ridiculous. I was told by a friend in the know that I should try out serums. I was explicitly directed to Drunk Elephant serums but they are so expensive! So I’m trying these on sale serums from my Black Friday finds first.
There’s also a toner which I’m still not 100% sure what that even does and I need to google it and really focus on reading what I find.
Third, this fun pink sparkle clip! I mean that’s it, about that.
And finally, a sparkly sequin shirt because I will never have enough sparkly sequin shit.
JCrew had a sale of like 60% off everything I think. Maybe I’m making that up but that’s usually the number. I admit I’m not as good at keeping track of these numbers as my nephew is.
Once it gets cold out all I can think about is sweatpants. Which is weird because I’m not a very casual person but I think in my house I’m always cold and I like wearing sweatpants while I wrap myself around my heating pad that I blast on high for warmth and I think it may actually be broken now from blasting it like that for hours/days at a time.
So I got these leopard sweatpants.
I also got a few gifts for my nephew but I know he is dedicated to reading this blog daily so I’m not going to put them here.
Carbon38 is a guilty and often unattainable pleasure. They have incredible workout clothes. Sports bras and pants made out of the nicest most comfortable materials and a matching set for each thing.
I only get stuff from there when it’s on sale and I think for Black Friday it was like an extra 30% off. So I got some sports bras and some pants made out of the nicest most comfortable materials.
That’s the roundup! I tried not to get too crazy, I promise. Since my packages get STOLEN from my home I needed to get these delivered to me at work and the man that distributes the packages already makes fun of me ENOUGH for getting a lot of packages.
Did you go Black Friday shopping? Did you find some good deals? Do you think Black Friday is dumb? Well, it’s not.
