Technical difficulties today

Monday, November 30, 2015
So of course, today's the day that I'm having wifi issues at home. I'm working on fixing it but in the meantime, if you're looking for deals, head over to my Facebook page because I'm posting over there. Happy Cyber Monday! 

Disney Princess My First Toddler Deal

Wednesday, November 25, 2015
Remember how I said everywhere's starting Black Friday early? Well, Kohl's has rolled out their $15 Kohl's Cash offer for online orders already and they also have some Black Friday doorbuster deals with toys. Because of that, I found a few extra things for the kids. 

One of the best finds was this Merida doll for only $13.20 and that was before the additional 15% off coupon that I had (AMAZING15 is the code) 

Kohl's also has a few other My First Toddler Princess Dolls, all at pretty great prices. Don't forget to use Ebates* because they currently have 6% cash back with Kohl's and make sure you're signed up for Kohl's Yes2You Rewards

What to Look for Coming Up on Black Friday

Tuesday, November 24, 2015
This past week I have seen countless emails with BLACK FRIDAY STARTS NOW and honestly, from what I can tell, Black Friday may be losing it's charm...just a little bit. 

Old Navy and Gap both rolled out their 40% off and 50% off for cardholders sale days ago. Normally it's 50% off for everyone in store on Black Friday and 40% off online so there's not much of a significance in shopping now or later. 

Carter's currently has 50% off from the 20th until the 25th.  On Thanksgiving and then Black Friday, everything in the store will be 60% off with an in store only coupon of 20% off of $40. I usually will go to Carter's at some point in the day to snag some pajamas for the kids because the price and quality are pretty great. 

Kohl's will be opening at 6 pm on Thanksgiving so that's a little annoying. As usual, they will be doing their Kohl's Cash offer where you can get $15 Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend (normally it's $10 for every $50) Toys will be 50% off, and they actually have some great toys. KitchenAid mixers are at times a good buy around this time considering what you can get in Kohl's Cash. (Watch out for Cyber Monday at Kohl's as well because this will always be my personal favorite buy) 

Macy's and other bigger chain stores will also have competing prices for KitchenAid, Keurig, etc. 

If you're looking for Hunter boots, Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be the time to find them. Keep an eye out for what Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus will have and also Hunter's website itself usually offers a color specific boot for a great deal. 

Target will have some decent deals on toys, as well as some holiday deals, but the thing I'm most excited about is their deal they have happening on Saturday. We need to buy new lights for our tree this year because our basement flooded early this past year and that ruined an entire box of our Christmas stuff...including our lights. I always love buying new wrapping paper there because the prints are lovely and I totally have one of their tree skirts on my want list so the $50 off of $100 purchase is perfect! 

Personally, I am looking more forward to Small Business Saturday to support the local shops here as
 well as the awesome handmade shops I follow on Instagram. Of course, Cyber Monday will be great too, and I have a feeling it'll be better than the deals you'll find on Thursday/Friday. Bonus points for being able to sit at home, in your pajamas, and shop at your leisure. 

What are you looking forward to buying this coming week?! 

Christmas Gifts for the Ladies Pt 4

Friday, November 13, 2015
Bouncing off of my first ladies gift ideas, here's more beauty stuff, but this time from Ulta. There are things I prefer to buy from Sephora sometimes but there are so many things I love to get from Ulta. They always offer some sort of coupon, which usually excludes prestige beauty, and their prices are pretty great. I tried to include something for every price point, and still keep it at a decent budget. 

First, I have to say that that Anastasia Beverly Hills eye palette is not nearly appreciated as it should be. I mean you constantly hear about the Urban Decay palettes but look at the colors on this one! Comparing the $35 price tag to some UD ones, it's basically a steal. It is most definitely on my personal wish list. As is both mini perfumes. I actually hate buying full size perfumes because it takes me forever to use the entire bottle, and I get tired of scents easily at times, so the pen sprays that Ulta offers are my favorite. Rollerballs are cool but pen sprays are even better. I always love Marc Jacobs Daisy but I've really been intrigued by the Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent. They also make an original Opium scent that my mom has been using for 30+ years so I think it would be cool to have the next version. 

Christmas Gifts for the Ladies Pt 3

Thursday, November 12, 2015
I really, really love what Macy's has out right now for their Martha Stewart and kate spade collections and for some reason, I'm really loving polka dots currently. Now that our kitchen is about 85% done (yes, it's still not completely done) I've been picking up pieces here and there to add to the newness of it. Basically our whole house is done in all blues and grays, except the kitchen. I've always loved hints of red in the kitchen. I kind of have an eclectic taste when it comes to decorating but I also like mixing the eclectic with modern/preppy. Right now I currently have a beautiful red southwestern accent rug in there from Six and Grand mixed in with some Courtly Check enamelware items from MacKenzie-Childs. (This tea kettle is probably my favorite piece and I don't even use it for tea haha) 

Christmas Gifts for the Ladies - Kitchen Edition

I have picked up pretty much every piece of the kate spade all in good taste collection while shopping inside Macy's and put it back. Not because I think it's not worth it or anything but I feel like they're perfect pieces to gift to someone or be given yourself as a gift. I just can't seem to buy it for myself! Those mixing bowls have definitely been in my thoughts for a couple of months now. 

Another great kate spade piece I think everyone could love would be the thermal tumbler with straw (and 2 of those are even marked on sale). Put a Starbucks gift card inside with some chocolate and a great lip balm or lipstick and ta-da! perfect secret santa gift, on a budget! (Speaking of lipstick on a budget, Lip Tar is currently half off) 

Star Wars Goodies on Sale

  For the next 2 days, Zulily has a Star Wars event happening. There are so so so many awesome things in the event. Star Wars fever is real and I don't see it going anywhere, anytime soon. There's something for the kiddos just getting into it as well as stuff for the older generations who grew up on it. If you don't have an account with them, you can sign up using my referral link

One order with paid standard shipping gives you free shipping with more orders the rest of the day. (It may sound silly but sometimes stuff has a high sell out risk so if you're worried about missing out on an item but still want to browse/buy other stuff, it's an awesome feature. Buy the high sell out risk item, pay shipping for that, and then buy whatever else you want at your leisure.) 

We're big fans of new books to read and I love that there are so many Star Wars options out there. We already own the color version of the board books I listed and they're pretty legit. The pictures are 100% realistic and it's a great quality book. 

Maybe the kids wouldn't be too excited finding school workbooks as a Christmas present but I think the Star Wars ones could make it fun, for everyone involved, especially for only $16.99 each. 

Is now the time where I throw a cheesy "May the force be with you" plug, wishing you good luck in your shopping? I hope you find all sorts of goodies to fill those stockings and to put under the tree!
