Black Friday and Cyber Monday Preview


It’s that time of year again. While our American friends are indulging in copious amounts of turkey, we Canadians have no distractions in our way while we plan for tomorrow’s Black Friday sales and Monday’s online sales! But sit back and relax, I’ll scope out the best sales for you!

Beauty – Looking for some great beauty deals? This is a great time to start all of your holiday shopping. Urban Decay is a great start, with 20% off everything on their website until the end of Friday the 27th with the code CRUSHED and for Monday the 30th they’re bringing back the Naked Vault II online for only $165. That’s every single Naked palette out there!! Great for gifts, or never go eyeshadow shopping again.

Wish List – Urban Outfitters

With 23 days until the big moving day, the penny pinching continues. But I just can’t help myself! My desire to shop is getting too much to handle, but alas….I am holding back. So the online browsing continues, and the wish lists grow longer. So what have I been checking out from Urban Outfitters?

Urban Outfitters is amazing for styles of clothing as well as home furnishings. The greatest of everything rolled into one. So my wish list consists of fashions for my bod and my home.

The Big move – game plan

It’s official!! All papers are signed and cheques have been accepted. December 1st I will be moving to the big city! I can’t believe my luck with the amazing apartment: great balcony with a cool view of the airport, right beside a Whole Foods, and a Top Shop. This is going to be wonderful.

Yet I’m 100% dreading the fact that I have to pack up my entire life. So here’s the plan, my goal for the next month and a half. Donate any piece of clothing I haven’t worn in a year, throw out all the crap I keep for sentimental reasons (holy, sometimes I think I’m a pack rat), and (AND) I vow to not buy a single beauty item from now until then. I have drawers full of things that need to be used, then I can start again once I move. No point in packing it all.

So expect a lot of reviews over the next month and a half!! No more hauls. But the shopping will commence just in time for the winter season and Christmas!!

I’m so excited it’s unreal. My beauty supply/love will not suffer. I’ll just love what I already have! So stay tuned! Time to talk about the old rather than the new and get ready for city and apartment living!! :D
