I'll be honest... I do not lot Black Friday. I stay away from the malls because I think it is a madhouse and I'd rather pay the extra 10% to avoid the long lines, the utter chaos that is the mall parking lot and the gunfire. Seriously, someone got shot in the leg over a TV at a Walmart in Las Vegas on Black Friday. Count me O-U-T.
That being said, I am a HUGE fan of Cyber Monday. You mean, I can sit in my pajamas and go shopping from the comfort of my own home and still get the same deals that people are fist fighting for over in the mall? Count me I-N!
Here are some of the Cyber Monday deals that I will definitely be shopping:
J. Crew // 30% off your online or in-store purchase with code "HOLIDAY"
Madewell // 25% off your online or in-store purchase with code "FEAST25"
House of Harlow // 25% off site wide with code "BLACKHOH"
Paper Crown // 25% off site wide with code "EXTRA25"
Alice + Olivia 25% off everything through Cyber Monday.
A few weeks ago, I told you all about the Hpnotiq's SparkleLouder contest. The deadline to enter the contest is on December 8, 2013 so if you haven't entered already, get on it!
Every entry in the contest gives you weekly chances to win one of 20 Effy Diamond & Blue Topaz Rings Sweepstakes Prizes (four each week)! Trust me, you want one of these Effy Rings.
The entry that "Sparkles the Loudest" will win the Grand Prize: A New Year's Eve trip for you and three girlfriends to New York City for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the ball drop in Times Square! You heard right… a trip to NYC!
All you have to do to enter is upload a pic showing how you plan to Sparkle Louder on New Year’s Eve - whether it’s a glam outfit, you with your girlfriends or a selfie. Then use Hpnotiq’s “SparkleLouder” app to make your photo shine! When you share your posts on social media be sure to use the official hashtag: #SparkleLouder. Here's my entry:
I can't even begin to imagine what I'd do if I won! I think that my perfect New Year's eve in NYC would involve a limo, all of my girlfriends and lots of Hpnotiq Dazzler cocktails. You can check out the yummy recipe HERE. I would love to watch the ball drop from a rooftop bar right in Times Square. It's never too early to start planning and, obviously, I already am!

I think that we all know who Emily is from Cupcakes and Cashmere. I have always been a fan of her style and mouthwatering recipes. She seems to have it all: great style, a handsome hubs and perfect highlights.
This is such a soft feminine look and almost have a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" vibe. I think it's a perfect date night outfit or meet the parents outfit. And it's reinvigorated my love for peter pan collars and headbands. Now, I need to shopping.
It's been such a busy week but I hope everyone is having a wonderful few days before this relaxing and gluttonous holiday we call Thanksgiving.
