I hope everyone had an amazing day with friends and family!!! Since the turkey and pie are devoured and while everyone naps, it’s time to look for some great Black Friday specials!
According to Tech Crunch, experts are predicting there will be a 45 perfect growth in online sales due to mobile apps during the week of Black Friday. On Black Friday, consumers will spend 6 million hours on the Top 5 mobile sites as well as visiting brick and mortar stores like Target, Kohls and Best Buy.
I know everyone and their mother has one of these Black Friday guides out right now. But here’s some of mine and things that I actually use to save yourself some cash! Happy Shopping! You can scroll through my WHOLE list ! But i’ll tell you about my TOP PICKS!!
Murad Cleansing Foam – Since hitting middle age and especially over the last year, I’ve become more and more aware of what I put in body and both on the inside and the outside. So, monthly facials now are a must. Murad is cruelty-free and all natural. One of my favorite new products is this cleansing foam. I use it nearly every day. It’s gentle and while on the pricer side, your skin will thank you for it later.
Murad Skin Smoothing Polish – I was at one time using another exfoliant that according to my esthetician was causing more harm than good. It was causing small tears in my skin and causing even more breakouts. She recommended the Murad Skin Smoothing Polish and I’ve been hooked ever since. I use it 2-3 times a week and it helps keep any flare ups at bay!
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water- My friend Nicole had been urging me to try this stuff for over a year. I didn’t believe that a ‘primer water’ could prep my face. Well, I was wrong. It works like a charm! *Note, if you have a lot of pores, try using this in tandem with a pore filling primer. Use the pore filling primer on the problem areas and the rest with the primer water. It works!* You can also use this to set your face or even as a quick refresh in the middle of your day!
NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss – Strawberry Cheesecake – I don’t know what planet I’ve been under, but I had no idea about these Butter Glosses by NYX Cosmetics. I was getting my brows done recently when I saw these at my local Ulta! I bought 7 of them. These are long lasting, not sticky and come in a ton of colors. And , they’re $5!!! Stocking stuffer ideas??
Josie Maran Set of 4 Argan Oil Illuminizing Body Butters – Before I went on vacation last year, I bought a travel size version of these body butters. They are FABULOUS. They leave your skin soft and supple. The price point isn’t bad either. Keep these either all for yourself and these can be perfect stocking stuffers for the beauty lovers in your life!
Crock-Pot 4-qt. Programmable Slow Cooker – What isn’t there to love about a Crock Pot? They are such life savers especially for a busy person like me (and i’m sure all of you) . Just put your ingredients in, program it and go about your business and dinner is served! Such a steal!!! You’re welcome!
Gallery Frames – Polished Brass – Hi, my name is Michele and I’ve become a West Elm addict! LOL. We got a West Elm store in my town recently and I’m obssessed. These frames are perfect for my office and can be used in any room of your home! Can’t beat that price either!!! Perfect gift!
Serene House Mini Astro Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser- Gone are those plugins that you have to replace monthly in our home and enter these diffusers. Best investment I’ve spent all year! We have four and will be getting more. You simply in a few drops of your favorite essential oils into the water basin of the diffuser and your home will smell amazing. Safe for kids and animals You can set these for continuous use or periodic use throughout the day.
Pierced Porcelain Tealights – Constellation – These Tealights from West Elm make a great grab bag gift or a great teacher’s gift. Hell, get them for yourself too! Can’t beat the $9 price! Yep! these are $9 bucks baby!!!
Keurig® K-ClassicTM K55 Single-Serve K-Cup® Pod Coffee Maker– I can’t speak highly enough about my Keurig. I use it throughout the day for coffee, tea, hot water, you name it. This model is the classic version and it’s on sale for $99. Make your favorite drinks without the hassle!!!!
