Let's Talk Turkey About Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It's a peaceful time of love and family where we can relax and enjoy each other and be thankful for having each other in our lives. I love that feeling more than anything.

But THIS YEAR....(and this is not to minimize the warmth of the holiday, I just have a different post in mind today)....we are going to go play Black Friday!!! And boy are there a lot of things to consider!

Wal Mart will be open all day, but that's boring. Give me a line of people all cheery and laughing about how stupid we are while sipping a hot mocha over stores open all day anytime!!! We're starting at Target at 9 pm. While some run to the electronics section, I'm stopping into the cosmetics aisle as I've been lured by some beautiful pictures of intrigue.

Pixi has some interesting holiday offerings.  The first kit runs $34 USD.  I haven't used their eyeshadows or blushes yet, but I imagine they're good.  The things I have used from the line are nice so I really want to look at this.

I LOVE Pixi nail polish.  They usually retail for $9-10 each so three polishes for $12 is a great deal and these look awesome to me.

The Lid Last Shadow Pen Duo retails for $12.  I have the pen on the left and it makes an awesome shadow base or is great alone with a liner.  Love it!!
Burt's Bees...who doesn't love Burt's Bees?  This year there are some great holiday sets to consider.  The Burt's Bees Favorites set is just $19.99


And look at this block of nail polish from Elf.  Dying to try this.  It's only $10!!


Elf also has two large eyeshadow palettes containing all the palettes you could possibly want.  I haven't tried their shadows yet, have you?  The palettes are just $15 each!


Awesome, right?  Right.  After Target, I'd like to head to Ulta.  They have a two page doorbuster flyer online right now but they haven't released all their in store specials yet, so I'll amuse myself in the meantime by shopping online.  There is a plethora of online deals to choose from!!!  

Beginning this morning, Inglot Cosmetics has a 20% off sale.  I'll be shopping there.  

If you look at the Affiliate ads on my sidebar, (they go live on Friday), you'll see that Nordstrom is having a buy 2, get one polish free special for Black Friday.  They have other cosmetics specials as well, so once Friday hits, click thru my ad, if you don't mind, and it will help sustain my website as you shop.  You'll find all kinds of deals.  Cyber Monday brings many more and on Monday, I'll have new ads.  Order online Monday and receive 10 pts per dollar on your Nordstrom Rewards card.  Counting down the hours....

Billion Dollar Brows, a brand I'll be reviewing for you soon, has a special this Black Friday, of 70% off their 3 Steps To Beautiful Brows Kit.  It retails for $85 and you can purchase it for $25.50 with the code BDBBLACKFRI.  This code is good from 11/22/12 to 11/26/12 11:59 PST.  I have this kit.  It's really nice.  It contains a brow pencil, brow gel and brow serum.

After I have some turkey tomorrow, I'll come back with more special savings.  That way, the special banners will be active, or closer to it, and the post won't be so long you can't stand it.  :)

What are your Thanksgiving plans and do you have any Black Friday madness in store, or how about Cyber Monday?

    1. I did, Moxie. I hope yours went well too. I finally found that Pixi polish set and a bunch of other things I didn't know I needed. ;)

  2. Looks like I have to head to Target! I have three teenage girls from the Tree of Sharing at work this year, all requesting makeup and nails. These are all kids in the foster care system, from the DSHS office downstairs, and it looks like the Target offerings would definitely fit the bill!

    1. They would love some of these things. They'd be pretty excited to get them.
