My last post focused on Black Friday shopping, and today I thought it would be fun to share what I actually picked up with you all. To be completely honest, I didn’t do that much Black Friday shopping this year, and most of the deals I shopped are actually things I plan to keep for myself. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been mostly Black Friday shopping online the last few years, and I have little regret about missing out on the crazy crowds.
One of my favorite Black Friday buys is makeup, particularly from Ulta. Last year I was impressed by their sale, and this year I also picked up a few things.
Ulta had Not Your Mother’s products on BOGO, so I made sure to stock up on my favorite dry shampoo: Clean Freak.
My favorite makeup purchase was this Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box. I originally bought it thinking I may give it away as a gift, but I am glad I decided to keep it. I love the variety of colors!
I also decided to try a new mascara and eyeliner, and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. As someone who goes through mascara and liner quickly, I usually don’t want to justify buying a high end product. This time however, I am glad I decided to give the Tarte Maneater Liner & Mascara a try, and may repurchase in the future.
I didn’t do much clothes shopping, but I did grab a new blanket scarf from Old Navy. Considering it has been absolutely freezing, it is no surprise it has quickly become one of the more worn items in my winter wardrobe. I actually wore it the other day while exploring in the snow.
The last part of my haul was actually not a Black Friday purchase. The Bath & Body Works Candle Sale is technically not on Black Friday, but it is a holiday sale, so I’m going to say it counts!
This is my favorite day of the year to stock up on candles, and this year I bought five. I gave one as a gift, but the ones I have ended up with are: Mahogany Teakwood, Cinnamon & Clove Buds, Champagne Toast, and Flannel. If you can’t tell, I have a thing for the fall/winter scents.
Last but definitely not least, my favorite purchase of Black Friday 2017 was an iPad Mini 4! I had been considering buying an iPad for some time, and I figured Black Friday was enough of an excuse to make it happen. I took all the photos for this post with it, and I’m excited to see what other ways I can incorporate it into blogging.
Did you do Black Friday shopping this year? What was your favorite purchase? Let me know!
