a gift guide for me: my wish list

Happy Black Friday week! Okay that's a joke, kinda. Obviously Thanksgiving is the most important event this week, but Black Friday is also a big deal. Not only does it mean tons of fabulous sales, but the official start to the Christmas season. Even though I'm working and have to miss out on going to the mall and then early morning breakfast with my sisters this year, I'm still hoping to snag a few things on sale. Hopefully I'll be trimming the tree and doing my best Mariah Carey impression while a few of these things are making there way to my front door.

tank - I may have graduated a year and a half ago, but I just love this sorority tank; they always say a sorority isn't just for 4 years, but for life. Maybe it'd inspire me to get my butt to the gym, or you know look really cute as a coverup for the pool
House of Harlow necklace - I've really liked these necklaces since I first saw them about a month or so ago. I think I've finally decided that I like the tan in the large size
Kendra Scott ring - I have a ring that I've worn on my right hand every day since I got it from my parents for Christmas in 2010. Lately I've decided my left hand needs a little love and really enjoy switching it up with different fun rings
Kendra Scott earrings - I bought my first pair of Elle earrings during a Labor Day sale and I absolutely love them. I currently have them in slate, which is a great versatile color, but I haven't been able to get this pair out of my mind
Kendra Scott bracelet - I'm super into drusy lately, and clearly everything Kendra Scott, and I think this bracelet would be a fabulous addition to my wrist. I think this black color is so different and unexpected yet still elegant and timeless.
Fraternity Collection shirt  - I own one of these shirts and love how comfortable it is for running errands or just lounging around the house. I'd love to add another one to my closet, probably in pink
Kate Spade earrings - seriously how fun are these!? Sometimes sparkle can be overwhelming but because these are studs they are just right. I'd love to have these beauties on my ears for New Years Eve.
monogram necklace - I've been on the search for a monogram necklace for ages. After looking at just about every single one out there I've finally decided this one from Accessory Concierge is the best deal. Lucky me I won't be changing my initials any time soon so when you factor in how many times I'll wear it, it's a really really great deal.
eye shadow - I'm a big fan of drugstore makeup; God blessed me with good skin so I can wear the cheaper stuff with the same results of expensive makeup counter products. However, this eyeshadow is my one splurge. I first bought it at a girls night out event my sorority hosted at a local Oxford makeup boutique and I've loved it since. If you have blue eyes, I promise this shade (Key Largo) will always make your eyes pop.
Alex and Ani bracelet - I bought my first Alex and Ani last Christmas and never would have guested I'd love it so much. I now have 2 that I wear every day. I think this one would be a great addition that I could wear everyday to increase my positive energy.

What are you hoping to find on sale for Black Friday? If I'm shopping exclusively online this year should I wait for Cyber Monday, or do you think I'll find the best deals on Friday?


  1. Are we the same person? Quite possibly! Love love love that tank (TLAM) and the Kendra's!


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
