Pre Black Friday Sales

Well I am officially on break for the rest of the week which means I have some more free time to blog (Yay)! After a busy weekend and not feeling great yesterday I am excited to be back and today I am sharing some great sales that are going on right now. I don't know about you but I want to try to get all my Christmas shopping done as quickly as possible this year so I don't have to worry about it. I took advantage of some of these sales last night and got some of it done! Black Friday every year gets earlier and earlier to the point where Black Friday really isn't a "thing" anymore considering the sales go on for almost two weeks now. I will be doing another post sharing all the sales come Black Friday/Cyber Monday but I thought I would share the scoop on the sales that are going on right now in case you want to get a head start on your holiday shopping. If you really wanted to you could get it done before December even comes!

Video: Tory Burch Unboxing

About a month ago around Columbus Day Tory Burch was having a fall sale. I had my eye on this bag for quite some time and when it went on sale for 25% off I decided to splurge and buy it! I have been using it for a little less than a month now and I am in love with it. It is the perfect size and shape. I filmed this video of me unboxing it and I am finally getting around to uploading it. I don't want to come across like I am bragging but I proud of my purchase and I wanted to share it with you! I had a ton of fun sharing this video and would love to do more like this in the future.  

The bag I got is the Tory Burch small Robinson double zip crossbody in navy!

My Christmas Wish List

Well it seems that holiday gift guide season and holiday shopping is already in full swing! I feel really on top of it this year to have my Christmas wish list done before Thanksgiving. I have to say it gets harder every year to tell my family what to get for me but I think I did a pretty good job of coming up with some items I have been wanting. I would love to know what is on your wish list this year and I will be sharing my sister wish list soon as well. 

As for gift guide season for me here on the blog I have a different idea I am going to possibly try out. In the past I have done gift guides for all different categories which is mostly what you see on blogs today. I am kind of sick of this idea because they all have similar ideas so I am coming up with something a bit different that I will be hopefully sharing next week.

Perfect Work Blouse

I just looked down at my watch tonight and I almost could not believe that 12 days of November have already passed. Where is this month going? I have tons of fun posts it is just always a struggle during this time of year with the semester wrapping up to find any extra time. Hopefully soon I can focus more on posting blog posts as the end of the semester will be here before I know it! 

Today I am sharing an outfit I shot a while back now but I am in love this with blouse. I purchased it last year but J Crew keeps making it in different colors and I am obsessed. It is the perfect work blouse and I always get so many complements on it. I love the tie around it to make it look more fitted. You have to check this blouse out if you are in need of a work wardrobe update. This would also make a great holiday gift!

Current Favorites

Wow time slipped away from me and somehow it has almost been two weeks since my last blog post (sorry about that). I have just been busy with life, work, and dealing with my weekly doctors appointments. Now that it is November I can't believe how quickly the end of the semester is approaching. I am getting SO excited for the holidays and everything this time of year brings. I am also excited to start planning some holiday blog posts as well. I don't think I am ready for Christmas just yet but I am totally ready for Thanksgiving! 

Today I thought I would share with you some of my current random favorites I have from fashion, food, and beauty! 


It Cosmetics CC+ Cream // I had a 20% off Ulta coupon that could be used on anything in the store so I decided to give this a try in the shade fair light and so far I am loving it. For me it is the perfect amount of coverage without feeling heavy at all. They have a bunch of shades and I am just loving this foundation. I have now tried a few It Cosmetics items and everything has been a real winner!
