Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had a beautiful, relaxing day filled with family, fun, and turkey! Now part deux of Thanksgiving weekend begins. The part with the shopping and the shoving and the STRESS.

Let’s make one thing clear – my Black Friday street shopping days are in the past. Now the mere thought of heading out into the madding crowds for a Black Friday shopathon is enough to make me want to go put on a strand of pearls just so I can clutch them in horror. It is cold and people lose their good sense on Black Friday. It’s not going to happen for me. BUT I know so many of you bellas who consider Black Friday to be a sport, and even more of you who are seeking out killer deals not just in stores, but online. I’m SO here for the online sales! And if you must endure the physical shopping, pay heed to Lucky Magazine’s Black Friday survival tips.

There are many, many websites and blogs out there with super well-put-together Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping lists. Brad’s Deals lists ALL of the major ads. Gizmodo has an excellent list that puts all of the tech items together. The Curvy Fashionista did an amazing job listing all of the plus sized fashion deals. K is for Kinky got all the natural hair listings down, and ChiTown Fashionista features all of the unique Chicago style deals around.

And me? My list will feature a little of everything I’m into. Makeup, hair, fashion and more! Without further ado, let’s get into these deals!

Makeup and Beauty


Believe me when I tell you, Avon has the stocking stuffer game on LOCK. I’m not just saying this because I’m a brand ambassador. They’ve got super cute stocking stuffers!



All natural beauty buys, including incredible serums and such.
