Black Friday Grabs + B&BW Candle Haul!

Happy December everyone! I’m working on a November Faves blog right now, but I figured I’d share a few of the items I picked up while shopping on Black Friday! I did leave a few things out: a bath rug from Target (yawn) and a few other things that I picked up as gifts. My husband and I also got a great deal on a mattress, but that didn’t seem blog-worthy either. (I wonder why?) Bath and Body Works just had a crazy good deal on their 3 wick candles, so I’m including that as well. I don’t usually go crazy with Black Friday shopping, and that didn’t change this year. I did get a few new things though, so here we go!

Let’s just ignore my awkward poses, shall we?

Gray long-sleeve top // $10 at Old Navy // I don’t usually shop at Old Navy (affectionately called Old Gravy), but the whole store was 50% off and they had a ton of cute stuff! This shirt is soft and cozy, perfect for lazy winter outfits. 

Black hi-lo hem top // $12.50 at Express // I honestly don’t usually shop at Express either, but apparently I was feeling adventurous! This top is super soft, has a subtle v-neck, and the hi-lo hem creates a flattering silhouette. It can be dressed up or down, and I’ve been loving it with jeans and boots lately!

Lavender shawl sweater // $15 at Old Navy // I’ve been wearing this cozy sweater constantly and the unique color adds something special to a plain top! It is soft and great for layering. 

  Critical Catch Packers Beanie // $17 at the Packers Pro Shop // I love the Packers, I love beanies, and I love any opportunity to combine the color pink with a good cause. It’s cute and fleece lined – perfect for Wisconsin winters!

Philosophy 3-in-1 shower gel in Cinnamon Buns // $12 at Ulta // It’s my Black Friday tradition to pick up a new one of these at Ulta every year! I love these shower gels and they last forever. Cinnamon Buns is a cozy, familiar scent, and I love lathering up with it. 

  You’ve probably figured out by now that I love candles, so when I heard that B&BW candles were $8 in stores, I knew I had to snag some for my & hubs’ new apartment! I picked up Fresh Balsam, ‘Tis the Season, Peppermint Marshmallow, Twisted Peppermint, and Marshmallow Fireside. The candles are retail priced at $22.50, and after a $15 off $40 coupon, I got them for $5.50 a piece. Great deal, right?! 

I went later in the day, so unfortunately they were pretty cleared out of candles that I would usually buy, however, I am excited to try out the new scents! (Hence the marshmallow scents) I was surprised how vicious people were in the store though – a woman actually stole the Marshmallow Fireside candle that I originally had, which was the last one with a winter label in the store, so I had to track one down with the fall label. She actually had her arms so full after taking my candle that she dropped a different one and shattered it, and then didn’t even tell the workers! Ruthless. She must be friends with Peach Bellini Lady. (Seriously, watch the video. You won’t regret it.)

 
That concludes my purchases, and thank you to all of the brave people that work in retail! You have more patience than I ever will. What’d y’all buy? Share with me in the comments!

    If they are out of the scents you love, you can always buy different scents and then return them for the ones you like when it’s less hectic!
