IT'S FRIDAY, FRIDAY....

by Christina


Black Friday is just hours away and I could not be more excited about the madness! After years of working in retail and not being able to participate, I can't help but wake up early and schlep my tired, over-stuffed body to the nearest mall and shop! (When you think about it, it's actually a great calorie burner...right?)

Here's a few of my favorite Fashion & Beauty deals:

Sephora: Offering 10 specials, $10 each! Be sure to check the website for a full product listing

H&M: Calling all early birds! The retailer will be offering the first 100 people through the door a scratch off value card with offers up to $300!! Fashions can be found for as little as $5 as well.

If you plan to head out, get ahead of the game by checking out the "preview deals" featured on many retailers websites. Personally, I scope out what they have offered and then make my list accordingly so I wont be scrambling at the stores. Good luck too all you shoppers out there and have a lovely holiday everyone!
