to shop / 2017 cyber week deals

I wasn’t able to blog earlier, but rest assured, there are still plenty of sales going on in case you are late to the game, and Cyber Monday is sometimes better than Black Friday. I save many purchases for November — it’s best to navigate with a list in mind. Unfortunately, I don’t plan to update this during the day on Monday.

Anthropologie / 30% off through Sunday. Predicting it will be 20% off and a larger % off for sale items on Monday. I shop their homewares and beauty more often than their clothes. They have a ton of good stuff, especially natural beauty! Recent loves: Rooster Highball Glass Set, Aquis towels. Also really been wanting the Faravel Moto Jacket in my size (backordered) and this CJW Italian Elements Scarf.
Apple iTunes and Google Play gift cards from Costco for 15%+ off (requires membership). Whatever I can pay for through iTunes I will so that I’m getting a discount (including my Netflix). Youtube Red is also really useful for watching those Chinese dramas with 50+ episodes on my commute. The $100 iTunes gift card is also available at Amazon for $85 if you have the Discover credit card that gives you 5% cashback this quarter.
ShopSpring / Not sure if they will do Cyber Monday but hope they do. They are a shopping service and tend to do 20% off site-wide sales with a cap. This is great because they carry items from Clare V, L’Occitane, Barneys, Brooklinen, etc.
Target / 15% off Monday. This is when I stock up on Cerave foaming cleanser.
Texture / 3 months for $5. Expiration unknown. If you like to read magazines on your mobile device. I love this, especially when I am traveling. You can download all back issues too!
Amazon / $5 off $20 on books through Sunday with GIFTBOOK17.

Birchbox / Spend over $75 to get 25% site-wide through Monday. They carry some brands I love like Shu Uemura Art of Hair, Tata Harper, Dr Jart, and Oribe. You can also buy gift cards for subscriptions. I no longer get their box but this is the only time of year I would shop from them.
Dermstore / 25% off today, 30% off predicted for tomorrow. They carry a lot of other brands and I love that they also have a rewards program. They had a 30% off sale for Black Friday, currently have a 25% off sale, but I expect it to be 30% tomorrow with no exclusions. When it’s no exclusions, you can shop for Drunk Elephant. Nope, it was 25% the entire weekend and exclusions never lifted.
Glossier / 20% off and free shipping through Monday. I got the clear boy brow, stretch concealer, and body hero duo (hope it’s not too badly scented).
Tata Harper / 20% off $100+ with exclusions through Thursday, Nov 30. A pretty good sale but not the best sale. I ended up getting what I wanted at Birchbox or Cult Beauty’s Black Friday sale (with a nice gwp).
Tatcha / You have to submit your email to get your offer. They have a bunch of holiday sets. I also got their lip oil – which is nice, but a splurge. This is an ok sale — if you want Tatcha, be sure to check QVC as well who has their own sets and a free shipping promotion going on.
Bloomingdales / 10% almost all beauty with nice gwp (including full size items for Space NK purchases). Good through Monday.
Peach and Lily / 30% off Korean beauty through Monday. I have stuff in my cart but am tempted to buy nothing.
Neiman Marcus / They did a $50 off $200 through yesterday and now have a tiered gift certificate promotion. I only mention NM here because they have Vintner’s Daughter on back order.
Nordstrom / They have a lot of gift with purchases. Depending on what you are buying, the freebie may > a discount.

Uniqlo / Love their Heattech stuff and collabs. They started their Black Friday sales early. This year I got some Ultra Warm Heattech items (which is warmer than Extra Warm).
J.Crew / Through Monday noon, 40% + 10% with some exclusions. (That’s 46% off.) I’ve been shopping a bit at J.Crew lately, but also returning a lot. If you like anything that Nordstrom carries, you can also pricematch there.
Petit Bateau / 50% off sitewide through Monday for Cyber Monday/Weekend. Black Friday was 40% off. I love their tees so I’m really excited for this milleraies travel set with shawl, eye mask, and pouch that’s made with the same material.

roztayger / 25% off full price with NOIR25. Exclusions noted on top of page. Tightly curated collection of bags. Through Monday, Nov 27.
MoMA Design Store / 20% off and free shipping through Monday. This is a pretty generous offer, especially if you are a member too. I love their curation (which also has some Uniqlo and Muji). They have the Stendig calendar which always sells out.
Need Supply Co. / 20% off through Sunday. Last year they did 25% off for Cyber Monday. A nice curation and while they have clothes, I’ve only paid attention to the home/office/accessories.
Baggu / 25% off through Monday. My favorite print of this season is the strawberry (sold out) and orange tree.
Rifle Paper Co. / 30% off through Tuesday.


to shop / 2016 cyber week deals

Last updated Mon, Nov 28 at 5:11pm ET

Sales worth noting — retail must be hurting as the deals are overall better than usual. Similar to last year, many retailers have a weeklong promotion. Smaller retailers tend to stick to the traditional Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and often have different promotions for each occasion. I will be updating if I see anything good throughout the long weekend, so check back later! Newer deals will be listed on top. Happy shopping and enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend… and let me know if you get anything :)

Nordstrom / Pricematching J.Crew 40% and Madewell 25% off for most items

Amazon Luxury Beauty / Spend $50+, get $25 for future Luxury or Professional Beauty purchase code BEAUTYGIFT25 (exp unknown). Must be sold/shipped by

to shop / {deal alert} target beauty up to 32% off today

The Target beauty department is a whopping 25% off today. Many items are already discounted and have another 10% off code. I’m super excited and stocked up on more Cerave foaming face wash and the highly recommended Pixi Glow Tonic. The tonic was in-store only so I placed an order for pickup. In general, online prices are more competitive and placing an order for in-store pickup is the best of both worlds. One item was only available online and already has a delayed shipping warning!

25% off code: BEAUTY. 10% off code:  SHINE.

to shop / 2015 thanksgiving weekend sales

Happy Thanksgiving from Texas!

Eeeeek. So many sales going on. Every year, the sales get earlier and earlier. Stay strong with your wishlist.

Most stores have something going on this weekend. If you haven’t signed up for their mailing list, check their website or social media. Alas, don’t forget about Cyber Monday. Some shops only do Cyber Monday and not Black Friday; some do both and CM has a better sale ;)

Sales I like, with an emphasis on beauty:

Personally, I’m on a hunt for a good Lenovo laptop (gift), Ren skincare, and maybe some Royal Copenhagen dinnerware if the price is finally right (and it may be at Bloomies).

I will be updating this throughout the weekend and will add a “last updated” time below. The sales definitely run through Friday, and may go until Saturday/Sunday. Sorry, I’m feeling a bit lazy to add in end dates. If you’re reading this later, please check the site before you get too excited!

to shop / {sale alert} 2014 cyber monday

This is the first year there have been so many online sales before Cyber Monday. Some Cyber Monday online sales are better than the Black Friday online sales, but I’d say in general the BF ones were better. Most places have extended the same sale to Cyber Monday. If I have time, new ones will be added to the top of the list! Happy shopping!
