2019 Black Friday Buys

The day after Thanksgiving will forever be marked as one of the best shopping days of the year. Companies and brands, big and small, offer some of the biggest deals of the year on a huge selection of products. What does this mean for consumers like you and I?

We get to shop in store or from the comfort of our homes on some of our favorite products without breaking the bank. With my recent move from NYC to Houston, I decided to go easy on the shopping and I only picked up a few things this year. Keep reading for my Black Friday buys.

The first thing I purchased I was a planner. I plan everything, from meals to my vacations and even a few errands. I haven’t had a planner in over a year and to be honest, I missed having a notebook for my daily, weekly and monthly goals. Insert The Happy Planner. As a new content creator/influencer, this planner came just in time. I can now plan out my months and break down any goals into small steps of various proportions. Not to mention I get to add stickers, highlighters and pretty handwriting. The Happy Planner will definitely keep me honest and accountable plus I couldn’t pass up on this massive deal. I got the mystery bag bundle for less the $50.

If I could kiss the creator behind Replica Surfaces I would. Mandy’s idea of rigid, stain-resistant, lightweight surfaces to up your photo game was genius. I finally mastered the flatlay, no easy fete, but I was still missing something in my photos. I happened upon Mandy’s business by pure luck and couldn’t wait for the Black Friday sale. She even DM’d me once the sale started to make sure I didn’t miss out on this amazing tool for building my brand. I’ll be a repeat customer for sure and with three surfaces, (white marble, subway tile and rose marble), I can’t wait to start creating.

I’ve been trying to minimize my carbon footprint. (Sustainable post coming soon) Since I tend to navigate towards makeup wipes, I wanted to try some makeup removing cloths instead that were reusable and machine washable. Face Halo had an amazing sale, (I got the BFF Pro Bundle for 30% off), and since I already have some products from Makeup Eraser for applying toner, I decided to buy a bundle from the Face Halo. I still own and use makeup wipes but, I’m making the transition little by little to limit my use.

As a beauty blogger, my vanity and closet are filled with the best of what the beauty world has to offer. Upon an inventory of my beauty items after I moved, I realized I was quite low on lotions, oils and body butters. Elle Vie Shea Body Butter to the rescue. I’ve purchased from this brand before, and I was IN LOVE! The consistency and quality was everything and to have a body oil to match the butters was kismet. I couldn’t have been happier, which I why I returned and added some products to my beauty stash. My favorite scents are Date Night and Social Butterly.

The holiday season is all about family and coming together, but Black Friday is about shopping until you drop, or your card gets declined. Lol.

I snagged some major deals and may still keep shopping if something catches my eye. With all of the needs out of the way, I can now focus on a couple of wants and feed my inner beauty product junkie.

What was on your list for Black Friday and how did you make out thus far?

Also, don’t forget about small business Saturday and Cyber Monday, which are great times to buy for yourself or others this holiday season.
