Oh heyyyy, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are upon us. Here are all the deals at my favorite places!
Just a reminder — it’s always a good idea to jot down a list of things you actually need and will use regularly. It’s good for your budget and just for, ya know, sustainability! Plus, when it comes to traveling and packing light, you really can’t bring it all.
Black Friday + Cyber Monday Deals
Amazon – various
There are a lot of different sales on Amazon, but the big one I’m keeping my eye on is their Kindle sales. The most basic paperwhite was only like $40 last year, and now they’ve introduced the new water-resistant Kindle Paperwhite. The mid-range Paperwhite, which is backlit, is on sale now for $79 from $119, so I might need to get that instead!
Amour Vert – 20% off everything
Still love my wrap dress! Amour Vert is a lovely, sustainable brand, but they’re definitely quite expensive. Check their dresses and jumpsuits to see if there’s something you have your eye on. Their stuff really doesn’t go on crazy sale, so this might be your best opportunity!
Clinique – 25% off everything
Clinique is one of my favorite US brands for skincare and makeup, so this is such a good deal! The yellow cream really is the best cream for my skin, even after trying different moisturizers in Korea, and the moisture surge is nice for particularly dry spots. I also love their waterproof mascara! I have monolids, so I can pretty much only wear waterproof.
H&M – 30% off everything
When you live somewhere for 3 years, and H&M is the store that fits you best, you’re going to be a little conditioned into keeping an eye on their new products! This sale I might have to avoid completely if I want to not drop $300 in one go. I just like how they often have trends I want to try, and while they’re fast fashion, they’re making an effort to be more eco-friendly. It’s not great, but it’s an attempt!
Plus, you’d be surprised about how nice some of their items are. Of course, a lot of the quality is questionable (all the teen-esque stuff is terrible), but I have sweaters, shorts, and dresses I’m still wearing to death!
Kohls – various markdowns + deals
This is going to sound crazy consumerist of me, but my mom, sister, and I headed over to Kohls after Thanksgiving dinner to pick up some things they’d marked down earlier that morning. In our defense, my sister had to work all day on Friday!
Anyway, there’s a ton of deals, I could probably fill up a whole website with them. Kohls is already known for their sales and markdowns, so imagine how crazy they are on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. My mom and sister got a bunch of things, and I picked out a pair of 14kt gold earrings for Christmas for myself.
Michael Kors – Up to 50% off select styles
If you want a purse that lasts quite a while, get one of MK’s saffiano styles. I have two bags, plus my mom has one of my totes, and they’re still looking amazing after 4-5 years. I also have a crossbody I love and still use if I don’t carry my straw crossbody. If you want to invest in a cute, durable purse, check out their deals! Their classic colors — luggage, black, navy — hardly ever go on sale, so this might be your best bet as well.
Naturalizer – 40% off everything
My friend recommended Naturalizer’s Emiline loafer to me because she wore them on her big world trip, and they still look like new. I saw them on sale at Nordstrom, so I got them in black, but they’re also now on sale at Naturalizer itself with a lot more color options!
Seriously, get them! I’ve only worn them a few times so far, but I’m still shocked at how comfortable they are without needing to be “broken in.”
Nordstrom – Up to 60% off
I’ve been needing to get two quality pair of boots for winter — a chicer black pair for the city and a cozy pair I can just throw on when I run outside quickly. All my friends who got their Uggs in high school still have them, so I figured the Kristin mini would be a good investment! As for the chicer pair, I searched around DSW and Nordstrom before liking this Naturalizer pair that’s water resistant.
Old Navy – 50% off your purchase
Old Navy is one of the few brands where I like how the jeans fit me! I’m still in love with the high-waisted pair I got back in September, and I’ve since been wearing their new Rockstar 24/7 jeans. They also just have a ton of pieces I feel comfortable in, so check out their tops and dresses as well!
Andddd, their yoga pants are the best. I lived in this pair in Oregon.
People Tree – 30% off everything
I love People Tree, and it’s one of the few ethical brands I can afford or fit into. While there are some things I like, such as this gray turtleneck sweater or these black trousers, there’s nothing I’m dying to add to my current wardrobe, so I’m resisting the urge of just jumping on the sale!
Reformation – 30% off Everything
Reformation is like the cool girl of ethical brands, and they’re super expensive! Whelp, if you’ve been wanting to splurge on a piece, check out how much it costs after the 30% markdown.
Soko Glam – 30% off Everything
I haven’t personally needed to buy off this site, but I’ve been following them for a few years now! They’re basically an online shop to get your hands on all sorts of Korean brands and products that might not otherwise be available.
TRTL Pillow – 25% off Everything
I’ve been wanting to try one of these for a while now because my neck has been a bit sore. I got the coral one, so I’m excited to try it on my next flight!
UNIQLO – Various Markdowns
There are different markdowns for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but most importantly — their Heattech is on sale! It looks like it’s around 25% or more off for the items. You guys know I swear by their tanks for warmth in the winter, especially if you’re outside a lot.
What sales are you guys looking forward to?
