Did you also buy a ton of crap this weekend?
No, me neither…
Iâ€™ll admit that most of my shopping was for me, but hey, itâ€™s stuff that makes me happyâ€¦soâ€¦mental health? (Can I submit these receipts to my insurance?)
Hereâ€™s a few of my fun purchases. And to new readersâ€¦I am all about the Christmas season so this is essentially a Christmas blog until January. Consider yourselves warned.Â
Old Navy (which is currently doing 50% off EVERYTHING)
Sparkly Workout PantsÂ â€” why yes, I did wear these to OTF today and chicked the dude on the treadmill next to me, thank you for asking.
Llama jammies â€” definitely not wearing these right nowâ€¦Â
Llama socks â€” also not wearing these right nowâ€¦Â
I decorated my tree yesterday!!! So pro tip for New Yorkers (with a little extra room in your budget, tbh, because this isnâ€™t quite the most budget-friendly but was worth it for me): NYC TreesÂ will deliver and set up your tree â€” and also include the skirt and stand. I had a crappy experience with tree delivery and putting it up myself last year, so this was worth it for me this year.
Last year, my college roomie Jen helped me shop/decorate my tree. (I am like a child shopping for Christmas ornaments, so I need a little adult supervision here to stick to a vision.) We decided on red + silver as a base with the sentimental ornaments mixed in. I like to think my tree is like me: kinda classy, kinda ecclectic.
I seem to have lost a bag of ornaments in the past year (I have no idea why, nothing happened this year), so I picked up some more to supplement.
Michaels was having some killer sales, so I got these awesome balls there.Â
And then Meg suggested we go look at the new Pottery Barn around the corner from meâ€¦Â
Hello sweet mouse!
UM THIS ONE WAS NOT THERE YESTERDAY. (Just took a break from writing this post to order.)
CYBER MONDAY DEALS
J. Crew: 40% off with code SHOPFAST
Nume: This is where I got the wand that makes my hair magically wavy/curly. (My best friend also thinks it looks like, well, not a curling ironâ€¦but anyway.) I have the 25mm barrel; I just ordered the 32mm. Theyâ€™re doing 30% off with code CYBER30
Beautycounter:Â These cute little hair travel sets (I also just bought theseâ€¦for meâ€¦my gift giving is going real well) are on sale and will probably run out! Iâ€™m also going to run my spend $100, get a free lip conditionerÂ (if you fwd me your receipt at email@example.com) through Christmas.Â
Amazon Echo: marked down to $79 from 99. Question! Iâ€™m considering one of these hands-free speaker doodads â€” are they worth it? Do you use yours? Is there one youâ€™d recommend over this one?
Kindle:Â For $50, you canâ€™t go wrong, right?!
What are you eyeing? Iâ€™m also going to try to come back tomorrow to talk about Giving Tuesday and the charities Iâ€™m supporting.
