 Today I am rounding up MORE Black Friday sales AND I am putting all the previous deals all into one post to hopefully make this easier for you! With the sales dropping here and there instead of all on one day or two days like they used to it can be difficult to keep all the deals straight! Hopefully this will be much easier for you! Now let’s get to the deals…

This is a great gift for any home cook in your life!

It’s holiday party season BEFORE we know it! I just realized I need to get a move on it with planning my outfits for a few holiday parties I have coming up and I thought maybe you are in the same situation! Today I rounded up some fun sweaters, shoes and all around festive finds for all your holiday parties. Whether you’ve got something fancier (this skirt and plaid top would be very fun and festive) or something more casual (jeans, this sweater and these plaid loafers are perfect) I hope you find some holiday party inspiration here!

Today I’ve got MORE Black Friday sales for you… the sales seem to be dropping here and there before the week of Thanksgiving, instead of all dropping on ONE day like they used to in previous years.  I’ve got the first installment of sales HERE and today is installment two. Stay tuned because there will be MORE posts like this one as the sales continue to drop over the coming week.

 Madewell is launching 30% off sitewide which is an amazing promo! To get their leather and denim at 30% off is super rare and a great time to stock up on their incredible deals. 

Old Navy has up to 50% off sitewide. It’s a great time to stock up on holiday pjs and cozy sherpa jackets.

Today I’m starting my Black Friday coverage… the sales are EARLY and plentiful. I used to do just ONE big Black Friday post but with all the changes the retail industry has seen in the past years, this year will be different. I’ll cover sales as they pop up here over the next two weeks. Sales are definitely starting much earlier than in years past, so get ready to shop! So check back often for my top picks for sales! 

Let’s take a look at the newest sales for today!

J.Crew is 40% off (almost) sitewide – this sale ends today, likely to be replaced by another promo in the days to come. But it’s impossible to say if the deal will be better or the same, or even not as good. 40% off at J.Crew is a great deal in my opinion.

Beautycounter launches their Black Friday deal today with 15% off sitewide (20% off if you are a new client, use code: CLEANFORALL20) and FREE SHIPPING over $50. Beautycounter rarely has sitewide promo deals, so now is the time to shop for new skincare or stock up on gifts.

Anthropologie has up to 30% off select home items and their candles and gifts items are some of my favorite to give this season. 

Nordstrom has some great markdowns for their early Black Friday deals including cashmere, shoes and lots of giftable items.

The holidays are a great time to GIFT CLEAN for those special ladies in our life. From tweens and teens to sisters, aunts, grandmothers or even for yourself… these gorgeous gift sets from Beautycounter make for pure delight under the tree. For teens/tweens I recommend the Ready Set Makeup Trio or Mini Beyond Gloss Vault and my daughter loves this Good Glitz Duo. For teachers, babysitters or others that help out all year long I recommend the Mini Beyond Gloss VaultSoulmates Exfoliating Duo (my personal favorite!) or the Good Scents Hand Cream Trio. Need something for the impossible to buy for? These Clean Swipe Hyaluronic Lip Duo or Good Scents Bath Oil Trio sets are sure to please! If you are new to Beautycounter, be sure to use code: CLEANFORALL20 for 20% off your first order!

 The holidays are a great time to spoil the special ladies in your life… today I’ve rounded up some really beautiful gifting ideas for aunts, grandmothers, sisters, fellow moms or even some ideas that you might want to drop to your husband. 

Beautiful and high functioning homewares like the our place pan (we own and love!) & perfect pot (on my wishlist!) or the Dyson cordless vacuum (honestly, life changing) make chores and dinner time so much more enjoyable. A beautiful scrabble set, pink wine glasses or personalized packing cubes make the ideal gift for the impossible to shop for on your list this year. Small indulgences like these slippers (I own and love!), this leopard print blanket (a favorite in our house) or ribbed scarf are thoughtful gifts for the homebodies and cozy-addicts. For the gal that has everything I suggest this candle with a carousel or the AD coffee table book, both of which are iconic and luxurious without going overboard. This necklace set, is the perfect affordable gift for a coworker or friend or make it personal with a monogrammed bracelet

There is something for all the ladies on your list here…

Today I’m kicking off my GIFT GUIDES for the holiday season… I’m so excited to share these as I have been working on perfecting the lists for a few weeks now. All the gifts will be items my family member (or myself) own and love or some things that are on their wishlist this year. 

Today we are digging into TEEN GIRLS! All of these items are items my daughter owns and loves or a few things on her wishlist this year. Items like a hat or a half zip sherpa are practical and fun for teens. I always love doing a few beauty items too since my daughter is very into skin care and makeup right now. This glossier makeup set is perfect for teens and is a brand they just love. Pair it with a caboodle and a face washing headband for the perfect themed gift. This year I’m gifting a personalized photo book to each of my kids highlighting some fun events from this past fall now that life is more normal for teens.  Items like pj pants and slippers are always under the tree in our house and our kids always look forward to new versions of each for the year after they’ve grown out of the previous years. Waking up is HARD to do in our house and while my kids have used a few different types of alarm clocks, we haven’t had great luck with any of them – this year I’m splurging on the hatch alarm clock for them for the gentle wake up light and the natural sounds for falling asleep. It’s maybe a boring gift for them, but hopefully one they will enjoy for years in the future AND one that will make my life a little easier in the morning.  These monogrammed zip pouches (or similar) are great for backpacks, sports bags and sleepovers to keep their items tidy and not headed to the lost and found. If you want a few splurge items for the girls in your life my daughter has requested a Kendra Scott piece (I love this heart necklace for her) and she loves my MJ camera bag and has hinted she would like one for herself.  All the girls love these sneakers and my daughter has them in two colors and wears them a lot – a fun new color way would be very welcome under the tree. If you need an inexpensive slam dunk gift this star projector is a favorite in our house. Perfect for making homework a ‘total vibe’ or for sleepovers.

I hope you find something here that the teenage girl(s) in your life will love!
