The BEST Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales Roundup!

Best of, DealsAnneke McConnell

Happy Black Friday friends! Man does this day feel like a whirlwind! So many sales and so little time!

We had a pretty relaxing evening for Thanksgiving and then it was down to business. I've been hanging out a lot with my Instagram girlfriends sharing deals as I find them and love to connect there!  

You can find an ENTIRE LIST  of sales rounded up below, but here are my personal favorite places to shop and some of my favorite pieces I own or am buying!



Nordstrom has hands down become one of my favorite places to shop and wit 40-50% off everyday sweaters (like this), ankle boots, my favorite denim, handbags, and jewelry, it is quite literally one-stop shopping.  Throw in free shipping and returns, and you have one of the best customer service experience too! 


BaubleBar has the pretty statement and dainting layering jewelry that's also fun and affordable. Now that everything is 30%, even better! They have A TON of amazing gift sets like the one below all ready to go, and let me tell you, they are GORGEOUS!!! THIS NECKLACE is also a favorite.



Call me crazy, but with so much to do around the Beach House and up to 80% off at Wayfair and Joss & Main, you can BET I'm keeping an eye our for deals!!  Our two daughter's share a bedroom and they really want these tufted daybeds with nailhead trim.  The price is a little down, but I'm still not sure I'll go ahead just yet.  This daybed is a great fit for my son's space and the coolest coastal blue color.  The list can go on......rugs, curtains, lighting. ;-) 


Serena & Lily overall encompasses the design atheistic that I LOVE.  Their furniture, home decor and kid's items are beautiful and amazing quality!   Here are some pieces I like to incorporate into designs frequently.  Everything is 20% which is HUGE when you're getting a quality piece that their sofa, armchairs, or dressers!

Gift Guide: Gifts Under $50 for HER

Christmas, Fave PicksAnneke McConnell

Happy Thanksgiving week! As I highlighted in my previous blog post, the Black Friday deals are already creeping up all over the Internet. It's fun and exciting to score such great deals, but it can also be super overwhelming! 

I've already seen Ray Bans and a Michael Kors watch for 85% off and about fell off my chair. As a heads up, if you're looking to snag some deals online this weekend, be sure to follow along on Facebook where I'll be sharing what I feel are great deals worth mentioning! 

On that note, this week I am doing my best to focus on BALANCE. When I began blogging so many years ago, I didn't even realize how out of balance I was (late nights, no plan, etc.), so it's a subject near and dear to me, and one I'm constantly growing in.

Balance IS possible!  This week I am so thankful for the opportunity that blogging allows me to maintain balance in my life. :-)

OK! So today's post is all about Gifts for Her under $50!

With prices fluctuating throughout the upcoming days and weeks, the prices of the items below will likely change, and hopefully decrease! 

As I'm already gearing up and planning for next year, one of the first items I spotted are these cute day planners below. I LOVE the fun and bright colors!

Below are several items I found across the Internet for under $50 that are sure to be a well loved gift for that special someone in your life, many items even under $25.

You can hover over the photo for the price and click the photo for details and any updated price and sizes (if applicable). Remember to have fun with it! :-) Happy shopping for all your friends and family (and a little on the side for yourself!). ;-)

Winter Boots 2015

Boots, Fashion, Fashion Blog PostsAnneke McConnell

We just got back from our Christmas tree farm adventure and, well........we never quite made it to the location! Sad right?! I'm so bummed that somehow our maps failed us.

We spent the morning getting bundled in sweaters, scarves, winter jackets, and of course our warm winter boots, and seemingly all for nothing! At least we were together. ;-)


With Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales in full swing (see the Gift Guide HERE), I've rounded up some great winter boot options. Unfortunately, I've searched and searched, but can't find my Ralph Lauren boots shown above (a few years old). 

I'm finding that when most sites get low on sizes, Amazon always seems to have more in stock. We live in Washington state, so that's my personal reference for the choices I picked, just so you know.

I love the Sorel and Tory Burch brand boots  for high quality and style, but there are some GREAT alternatives that are just as stylish and affordable. Hope this helps you find that perfect warm boot for this winter!
