10 Things on my Black Friday List

(and what you might want on yours!)

If you’re like me, the crowed Black Friday shopping isn’t my jam. I’ve done occasional Black Friday shopping, but this year I’m planning on something like sitting behind the computer with sweatpants, fuzzy socks, Christmas music and leftover pumpkin pie. The latter compilation seems more appealing to me.   So the list I’ve compiled is all virtual Black Friday shopping with companies and why I love them!!

Morning Lavender

I absolutely adore this boutique! Their style of clothing is very feminine with a touch of classic. Morning Lavender was actually started by a photographer, LACE & LOCKS, so she has a great perspective of what clothing looks good on camera. And to say the least, their clothing is just incredible!

Lands End

Sometimes I wish that Lands End would sponsor me to wear their clothes! I also love their shoes because I have wide feet so they have a cute selection of my needs!


Little story here- I grew up in ballet when my family and I lived in Scottsdale it was my first real passion and I dreamed of the day were I would be old enough to wear the shoes. When we moved to a rural area, dance lessons petered out and I never got to wear the coveted slippers. Years later I’m now planning to buy a pair, and just might get back into ballet!!

Down East Basics

This is another of my favorite places to shop! One of my favorite pieces that I’ve purchased from there is my white tulle skirt-a staple in my wardrobe! Here are a few items I’m eyeing.
So tell me, what’s on YOUR Black Friday list? Do you go out or do you prefer to play it safe behind the screen?

It's an easy treat to make and it can be served on its own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream...or if you're like me, both!
