Black Friday Sales 2017

As much as I’m not about the frenzy of holiday stress or shopping, I am all about treating myself or those I love to something amazing now and again.  I’ll opt to shop from the comfort of my couch, while I know some of you will get total joy and fulfillment out of the hustle and bustle of crowds! Whether you’re fulfilling a long holiday shopping list or just wanting to treat yourself to something you’ve been eyeing for a long time, this weekend is a great time to do it.

Black Friday through Cyber Monday marks one of the busiest retail periods on the year, and obviously one of the best times to get some incredible deals. Below are the sales I’ll be logging on for, along with the products that truly make my heart skip a beat. Happy holidays, y’all.

SHOPBOP – 20% off $200+, 25% off $500+, and 30% off $800+ or more. Nov. 21-26. CODE: MORE17  | SHOP NOW
If you’re wondering where I go when I want to treat myself: the answer is SHOPBOP. I recently bought myself these Sorel wedge bootie and can’t recommend them enough: comfy and can totally stand in for everyday boots but they’re waterproof!

J. Crew – 40% 0ff everything! Online and in stores through 11/27. Code: THANKU | SHOP NOW
I’ve been eyeing this stadium coat for months and I do think that 40% off might finally get me to pull the trigger. I feel like waltzing into 2018 in a brightly colored coat is exactly what the year needs.

Nordstrom – Extra 20% off, free shipping, free returns. Cyber Monday! No code required. | SHOP NOW
Here’s my go-to online destination for high-quality, thoughtful gifts. The hippie in me is dying over these astrology necklaces, and the hostess in me thinks these customized cutting boards are pure holiday perfection.

Parachute – 20% off everything. Nov. 24-27. CODE: SALE17 | SHOP NOW
Friends, I have been dying to crawl into a bed of Parachute linens. Perhaps an entire set is a great gift for you and your SO to gift each other?

If I find anymore gems over the weekend I will be sure to update this list! Got a sale you are freaking out about? Share it in the comments, m’love, and happy shopping!

S3 Ep1: Kalisa Augustine, Energy Artist + Crystal Healer

The cuffs are coming off this season, starting with Kalisa Augustine. I thought we were going to talk about crystals, but that would be selling this energy artist and metaphysican short. She is a force of nature and she is going to remind you are on this planet not just to survive, but to thrive——whether that means being more discerning about the people you surround yourself with or the content you consume. Never has there been a more important moment to step into what it means to be a conscious creator for yourself and those around you.

How To Be A Badass

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that my nightstand looks like the Life Your Best Life section at Barnes & Noble. Between the self-help and the beach books that I have to consume to take a break from all of the self-help, my reading list is ever rotating. I’ve been picking up Jen Sincero’s You Are A Badass for months now, knocking off a chapter here and there when I need a pep talk, and it’s just a gem.

Sincero is a straight-shooting, tough-loving, cowgirl-cussing life coach will make you feel like you can do anything—then tell you how to break your self-defeating habits to get on with it already. I’ve never encountered such a refreshing combination of spirituality and practicality in one book—it’s definitely a more modern, woo woo approach to career and life advice, and the reason why everyone from recent grads to retirees is jumping on the badass bandwagon.

I’m about halfway through You Are A Badass and already re-reading my highlighted and dog-eared pages. Most of them are stunning reminders of how we get in our own way. How we live by an imaginary set of rules that aren’t real, but keep us deceivingly safe. How all of this fear and procrastination is a bunch of BS that we use an excuse to avoid doing the hard stuff…uh oh. I’ll leave you with a few more nuggets of wisdom from Sincero:

P.S. Is it too early to talk stocking stuffers? Because this book would be pretty great for anyone on your list who’s in transition—or stuck in a rut.

Celebrating 10 Years of Jett Eyelash Extensions

Not a week goes by that someone doesn’t ask me about my lash extensions, or my “minkies.” They’ve not only transformed my eyes (yes, I woke up like this) but my entire morning routine (no more curling and mascara—can you imagine?!). I’ve had them since Jett Beauty opened its doors in Minneapolis 10 years ago and I covered this new service on my local magazine beat. I had never seen anything like it: full, lush lashes that looked more supernatural than any pair of falsies and required minimal maintenance (I get mine filled every three weeks, which takes about an hour).

In the TEN YEARS that I’ve kept up my eyelash extensions, I’ve only ever trusted them to Jett. They weren’t just the first, but founder Amy Kelly and her team are still the best. In the extension world, that means these pros know how to tailor lashes to your face and eye shape, use only the highest quality materials, and apply lashes individually—not in big, gluey clumps. There’s no extension like a Jett extension!

In honor of Jett’s 10-year anniversary, they announced new express lash services, facial waxing, and eyebrow threading and tinting techniques and are celebrating with a beauty bash this Friday, October 27.  This is your chance to experience Jett’s signature services as well as other beloved local businesses like my go-to Glow Lounge spray tan and derm extraordinaire Dr. Bailey Lee (see: my double chin treatment). Be sure to call ASAP if you want in on the discounted treatments that evening! And don’t hesitate to stop me on the street and ask me about my minkies.
