It's (black) Fridaaaay!

Happy {Black} Friday Everyone! I trust that you all made it through your Thanksgiving holiday in one piece…. Now today, as is tradition, we are all filling our bellies with turkey leftovers, preparing to empty our wallets on sales, and {for some of us…} nursing wicked hangovers. #familytime

I've never been one for braving the masses on Black Friday; no sale is worth sleeping outdoors or getting trampled by strangers. But I AM all about those Black Friday savings! And thankfully each year, more and more retailers are getting with the program and extending those same killer savings to online…..where us "normal" people shop. ;) 

Maybe you've missed some of the deals and steals going on today though since everyone and their mother are sending out email promos……I, for one, have dreaded opening my email for weeks….if that's the case, not to worry; I've compiled a list of shops that are offering online discounts today that I think are worth checking out…{some of them all weekend} So now, all you have to do is log on, sit back….and shop! 

Forever 21 is offering up to 70% off clothing & accessories— as well as free shipping anywhere in the U.S.! Of course you can find every trendy thing your heart desires at Forever; there's no need to cover the obvious…..but I will make special mention to check out their line of workout apparel! Since a lot of us are going to be sticking to those hot-body-resolutions-2017 here shortly— we might as well look good doing it. They have a surprisingly cute collection of compression leggings and sports bras to choose from….and they don't look like something you'd normally get from Forever 21. 

My picks: men's beanies {'for the best "slouch"}, overnight bags and wallets, and flannels….there are waaaaay too many to list specifically. But you can definitely find a grip of cute styles to choose from on them all!

Nasty Gal is offering 30% off all marked down items today as well as 30% off select "Black Styles". I'm not sure what their algorithm is for declaring something "black style" — at first my emo side got all excited and thought that it applied to that specific COLOR — but it doesn't. So i'm compartmentalizing my confusion and just throwing sh*t into my shopping cart….who cares? 

My picks: I can't resist their selection of jumpers, off-the-shoulder tops, and velvet chokers {which will make great stocking stuffers this Christmas}

Soko Glam is currently my biggest weakness in life and with 30% off site wide, it's about to be your's too. If you haven't explored the amazingness that is K-Beauty yet then you can literally stop reading this and just do yourself a favor, and head on over to SoKo for a little Skincare 101. There are so many high-quality skin care products and cosmetics— almost all of them already at a great price point— with an additional 30% off {and free shipping} it's likely you'll need to remodel your bathroom just to fit your new goodies. And just look at any Korean woman's poreless, glowing face and try and tell me that you're not wanting to be about that….

My picks: Tony Moly Lip Stain, Son + Park Beauty Water, and MISSHA Cell Renew Snail Cream. {i won't overload you on products just yet— trust me, i'm doing a post alllllll about my faves very soon}

ASOS is saving you 30% off everything all weekend long by using promo code: THANKFUL30 at checkout. From designer labels to basics from the brands own collection, you're sure to find a ton of things worth picking up. I happen to really like the ASOS brand pieces. Particularly their dresses and rompers. 

My picks: EVERYTHING!….but if you insist i be more specific, bodysuits! ('Cuz when in doubt, wear a one-piece…that's the motto i live by ;) They have some with really sexy plunging necklines for all of you fellow small-chested ladies. And they're comparable to any of the styles you'd find at American Apparel, just a lot less expensive.

SHOPBOP is giving you up to 25% off with the promo code: GOBIG16 . They have a great selection of jeans and an even better selection of designer shoes! 

My picks: Current/Elliott "Stiletto" Ankle Skinnies and {finally!} my coveted Jeffrey Campbell "Rodillo" Wedge Sandals {in nude}….they've been sold out of the size and/or color i've wanted for like, a thousand years.

Steve Madden is giving {you guessed it…} 30% off all shoes today. Although keep checking back through this weekend for additional surprise deals—he's doing an "8 days of Christmas" thing— so….there's that. 

My picks: the WILA bootie in the color grey…..i love the cutout design and heel. Plus it's a fresh take on neutral. I have a lot of black and tan booties and i'm bored.

Victoria's Secret is offering a few different perks for shopping online today; you can get 20% off select items, free shipping with any order over $40, and 50% off bras! I don't think i need to explain what you can buy there…..haha….and you don't need to know what i'm buying. #cleanminds

This Is Ground is a great place to look for gifts for men and any techie enthusiast. Today only, they're offering 10% off $250 or under and 20% off of orders higher than that. If you haven't heard of them I encourage you to check them out— they have some very chic, high-quality travel accessories for just about anything with a fruit shaped logo on it. 

My pick: The Mod Laptop 3 in Cognac. It'll set you back a pretty penny, even with the discount…but damn it looks good. And it even has a cross body strap for easy travel— which will be totally handy when you can't afford rent next month

Wow….this list was longer than anticipated….I need a drink and more turkey! Happy Saving!! XO

I love packing my weekender for just about any occasion….
I live for the moments that I get to travel and there is absolutely no arm twisting to get me to venture somewhere new. So when this weekend took me to a little place called Ojai, Ca….

…let's just say I came home smitten.
