Thanksgiving is probably my favorite American holiday – even though I had never celebrated it before moving here 8 years ago! There’s something so cozy, relaxed and nostalgic about it… It actually gets me almost as excited as Christmas (don’t miss my Thanksgiving table decorations here). Not only does it bring festive, yummy dinner parties with friends and loved ones, but it also signals one of my other favorite days of the year – Black Friday. I love stocking up on wardrobe and beauty essentials just as much as the next person, but in recent years I’ve been foregoing the brick-and-mortars to shop from the comfort of my own couch instead. This is especially true this year, with Baby Hunkin on board (who is growing so fast and taking up all of mum’s energy already!).
I’ve spent days and days hand-picking these items just for you guys – I’ve rounded up all the sales that you cannot miss this week, some of which have already started. Click through to shop my absolute favorite items from home to beauty and fashion. As always, if you’re strategic about Black Friday you can score some major steals. My favorite things to look out for this season? Patent boots, checked coats/blazers, super chic handbags, statement gold jewelry, and cozy sweaters. Let me know what you think of my selection in the comments, and happy shopping!
