Black Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Friends!

I’m sure some of you are up and ready to get your shopping on. I, too, am braving a few stores this morning. In the spirit of Black Friday I’m rounding up some of my favorite things that I’m buying family, friends and maybe myself 😉

Some are travel related because you know it’s my passion in life and these items make it so much easier, Others are just fun stuff I’ve come crossed.

Favorite Lipsticks

My BITE Beauty favorite lipsticks are on sale ($19!) at Sephora in a perfect little gift box. The easy answer for what to get your sister, best friend or even as a hostess of an upcoming party

Favorite Grey Boots

I’ve been on a huge grey, pastel pink and purple kick as of late. All these grey boots are on sale today at amazing prices and I may be scooping up one or two for me 🙂

Charging USB Port Luggage

Traveling with this piece of luggage means never having to search out a wall charger in the airport/train station because it has a USB port inside. Whoever thought of this was a genius! I’m always searching out a space to wait by that has a charger. Perfect gift for your traveler!

Favorite Headphones

Since most of the iPhones are losing the headphone jack, I’m in need of bluetooth headphones. I’ve been waiting until Black Friday to purchase these because I figured there would be a great deal. $120 off, I’ll take it!

Hiking Boots

I’ve been hiking more often in the Adirondacks since living back in my hometown area. I think it’s time to upgrade the footwear so my feet don’t get so tired all the time. I also am worried about my ankles when coming down the trail. These seem to be very sturdy and they are waterproof for the unexpected creeks!


Shop Local!

I love to shop local when I can. I love supporting these two businesses in the Saratoga Springs area. Both offer unique gifts!

Saratoga Olive Oil | Recently named one of the top 5 stores around the world for selection, this store offers online shipping for most of it’s packages. There are so many different flavors to choose from so there is something for whatever type of cook is on your list.

GTS Clothing | The great thing about GTS is everything is Made in the USA and actually right here in Saratoga Springs. I’ve had my pair of yoga leggings for over a year now with multiple wash and dries and they are still in perfect condition. I love the fresh look of their designs.


I hope everyone has a fabulous rest of the holiday weekend!

    That luggage is awesome! I ventured out to a few stores; it wasn’t really crowded, so not too bad. I got more online though. 🙂

    I bought those lipsticks last year and they have lasted a while now! My nephew wanted headphones so I scooped some up but I dont think I got ones nearly as good as the ones you have here!! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend girl! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
