Black Friday Shopping Guide 2018

Happy Thanksgiving! As promised, I am back today with a haul featuring all things I have recently picked up including fashion and beauty products. I will also include a list of all of my favorite retailers that I will personally check out and might pick up this Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up. I hope these inspire a few purchases for yourself and others as gifts for Christmas season coming up really soon. So get ready to take some notes, if you’d like, of course!

I use RewardStyle to earn cash back as a blogger and Ebates whenever Rewardstyle is not available. You should definitely sign up (it’s free!) and start earning cash back every time you shop with Ebates (2 times cash bay on all stores today!). Again, similarly to RewardStyle affiliate link option which lots of bloggers use on their site, whether you choose to shop through them, through Ebates, or directly from retailer websites, you still pay the same. List of all retailers that Ebates is offering cash backs: here. Don’t forget to install Ebates button to your tab.



I discovered the No. 04 Boi de Balincourt oil perfume at The RealReal retail store in Melrose, West Hollywood, in my recent trip to LA. I went to Violet Grey and sniffed other Maison Louis Marie perfumes and candles, and I fell in love with the brand even more. I added the A.P.C candle to my Need order, and the scent (as I said in my Insta-stories) was discovered as I walked in their store in Melrose. I knew I had to pick it up since the smell was right at my alley, cologne-y manly, floral, and not too overwhelming but powerful enough to catch my nose.


I picked up the below products using my 20% VIB ROUGE discount.

Mango – 30% off everything with code BLACK18

I picked up 3 things last weekend:

GLOSSIER – 20% everything

I just bought this Phase 2 set for my cousin’s 21 birthday. I’m sure she will love everything just as much as I love the brand! It comes with a cute bubble pink bag and some cute stickers, perfect as gifts! It’s like Glossier does all of the wrappings for me already, so easy!

SOKO GLAM – 30% code SGBF18

Here are a few things I will pick up during the sale:


I bought the Hourglass Edit Unlocket palette and a pair of Loewe slip-on sandals. Unfortunately, they are both sold out, so I couldn’t link them for you. 🙁


MEJURI – 10% off one, 15% off two, and 20% off three or more

I’m a Mejuri’s ambassador, so if you’d like to support and shop through my link. I will get to earn a small tiny commission for referring Mejuri to you.

ALLSAINTS 30% off everything, no code

Allsaints is one those brands that get lots of loves as well as hates among fashion people I know. I do agree that their quality has gone down significantly over the year, and their stuff is very over-priced. Majority of their items are made in China. And I think only their outerwear is worth to buy, only on sale. My Allsaints leather jacket, however, was made in India. I got it at Nordstrom at the beginning of this year with some sort of sales going on at the time. Now is a really good time to invest in one if you’ve been looking for one that does not cost a fortune but statement enough for all occasions. Below are my 5 favorite picks:


I’ve recently bought this blazer and couldn’t be happier. It was a perfect oversized and perfect color blazer that I had been looking for for a long time now. I blogged about it here. My other favorite picks from Almina Concept has got to be their amazing sweater selections. I love this high-neck camel one, this chunky oatmeal colored one, and this steel blue colored one.

H&M – different offer per day.

It was 20% and now is currently 30% off last time I checked. Make sure you add the discount code at check out. Below are a few things I’m eyeing:


ARITZIA – 10% Babaton & Wilfred 

I’m going to pick up these Wilfred pants, ESSIE, size 0. Below I’m earing the Aritzia wool scarf that I bought years ago. Still a staple in my closet!


LUNA SANDALS – 25% off storewide code SECRET2018

OUTDOOR VOICES – 40% off select styles

ITALEU – 40% entire collection

INCASE Macbook Sleeves – up to 50% (12% cash back on Ebates)

Happy shopping!
