So, it turns out that the one thing for me that doesn’t have to change this Thanksgiving Holiday is how I handle my Black Friday shopping. This Black Friday I’ll be doing what I do every year: get up, pour myself some coffee, and open my laptop. I usually have a good idea of what I’m going to buy so I’ll make my purchases and then I’ll enjoy the rest of the holiday while I’m waiting for my purchases to arrive.
Oh, and one more thing isn’t going to change. I always buy myself a few things. After all, I’m worth it. Plus, I’ve gotten in a routine where I wait until Black Friday to stock up on some basics I need every year. For example, I love the bras at The Gap. They’re comfy and don’t show through my clothes. So every year, when everything at The Gap is 50% off, I buy a new one and rotate out one of my old bras that has started to fray. (This one is my favorite!)
Today, I’m sharing some of the items on my Black Friday 2020 To Buy list. Some of these items are already on sale and some of them won’t be available until later. I’m letting you know what the sale price is and when you can take advantage of the best price. Why not take this opportunity to get a little something for yourself, too?
Five Things I'm Buying for Myself this Black Friday
I've bought at least one of these cashmere sweaters in a different color on Black Friday for the past five years! And this year, I've got the beautiful this burgundy crew neck on my list. Macy's also has V-Neck and Turtleneck versions of this sweater for the same price. Macy's is having a great sale on all their cashmere so I may be tempted to get something else while I'm on the site. This cashmere hoodie and cashmere joggers set looks perfect for my plans to spend the week after Christmas lying on the couch watching movies.
Macy's is going to be offering a coupon for 20% off sale prices starting November 24 which makes of these items an even better deal. I'll post the link to the coupon when it's available.
I love, love, love Korean skincare products! Right now my favorite Korean Beauty Products store is giving 30% discounts on every product on the site with the code BRIGHT30 so I'll be stocking up on all my favorites.
This cleansing balm is great at removing makeup and mascara and makes my skin feel so soft afterwards.
OK, so I actually used to own these sunglasses. But you know how it goes. I took them to Disney World last year and left them in our hotel room. And I've missed them ever since but there's no way I was going to pay $204.00 to replace them.
Turns out, though, that I am willing to spend under $150.00 to have these again. They're comfortable to wear, not too dark or too light (a pet peeve of mine with sunglasses), and last forever (if you don't lose them.) I rarely see these on sale so I'm going to treat myself and then tie them around my neck when I wear them.
I love the athleisure wear at Athleta, but it's kinda pricey and it never goes on sale. Well, almost never. Everything at Athleta will be 20% off on Black Friday. I've got my eye on this Merino Wool Long Sleeve Tee. I'll wear this shirt on a regular basis from now until late spring. It's a great example of the elevated basic that Athleta is so good at making.
I love pretty much everything from It Cosmetics and I'm an especially big fan of their Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara. This mascara is supposed to be even better at making your lashes appear lush and full so I can't wait to try it. It's normally $25, but Sephora has it on sale for $15 starting on Black Friday so I'm going to be sure to get up early and add to cart.
P.S. I’ll be updating all of the Gift Guides all through the holidays to let you know when an item is on sale.
