Hello, hello & happy Thanksgiving! While I’m Canadian, and we had our Thanksgiving in October, I always look forward to this weekend because of Black Friday and all the amazing sales. Usually we host a Canadian Friendsgiving this weekend, but COVID has put a damper on that. It’s a weird year for sure, but trying to focus on the positive.
That said, I’m trying to narrow down exactly what I want to purchase this year during all the sales, and as I always have shared a huge round up, I’m hoping to help you shop efficiently but also planning to shop from my own list & get organized! Having a baby definitely lends less time for myself on the computer perusing, but I’m tackling this now while he’s napping, so let’s jump in!
SMALL BUSINESS SALES
I have never done a section dedicated to small business, but I think it’s more important that ever to support those people this year. Here are a handful of brands and businesses I love:
Ole Design | 20% off; use code BLACKFRIDAY. A Canadian business that has the most beautiful baby clothes–quality and chic wrapped into one. Hendrix has this leopard sweatshirt, these cute joggers & this fur pom hat.
No Pong | 15% off 6 tins; use code XMAS6. This is a new, natural deodorant I have been using and loving. I just ordered more–also love the price point!
flax sleep | 20% off. We recently upgraded our bedding & purchased a duvet cover from Flax Sleep a couple months back (check my stories today to see it) and I’m so in love. We haven’t invested in our bedding in years, but we’re so due. We got the olive green linen and it’s cozy, washes amazing & looks great. Highly recommend taking advantage of the sale bc they don’t do sales this big.
McShane Custom Design | Looking for tie-dye lounge wear? Look no further! I’m not sure she’s running any promos for BF but my gf recently launched her Etsy shop and her stuff is so cute (baby items available too!).
bump and bae | 15% off everything (including sale!); use code TREATYOURSELF15. You girls know I loooove this business as a place for stylish pregnancy & beyond clothing. The joggers I own (below) are something I literally wear multiple times a week. So. Good.
Wild Bird | Different sales each day on ring slings: Nov. 27, Buy Two, Get one Free; use code BIRDSTASH. Nov. 28, Buy one single layer sling, get a double layer half off; use code DOUBLEUP. Nov. 30, 35% off neutral slings; use code NEUTRAL35.
A.Co Designs | 50% off Instagram Story templates; use code GIVETHANKS. Shameless plug–this is my own little Etsy shop 🙂 I’m running a promo for this weekend only for the first time ever. Purchase as many templates as you’d like (add to cart to see the discount!).
SOME PERSONAL FAVES I OWN ON SALE
My favourite self tanner is 20% off (they never do sales + it’s already V affordable!).
Everyone always asks about the Spanx leggings & if they are worth it: 100% YES. They are currently on sale so snag them now and you won’t be disappointed. I’ve had mine for a year and a half, wore them pregnant and not, they don’t stretch out nor lose their shape. They wash up great (I hang to dry) and suck you in, but aren’t restrictive. I would say they fit snug so you can size up.
I shared this faux leather skirt recently & love it. Although I’m not wearing a skirt often now, I know this is a classic, affordable piece I will have in my closet for years (I purchased the cream colour).
Just got these Zara jeans–hello 90’s!–and they are going on sale tonight at 8pm.
