Black Friday Shopping for everyone, even yourself
Black Friday sales emails are flooding in and it’s hard to know where to start and where the best black Friday deals are. These online sales start earlier and earlier each year to try and get you to shop before going to their competitors as most of us don’t have bottomless pockets.
I’ve been gearing up and scouting out the Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday sales through my email inbox alerts, LikeToKnow.it and favorite websites. I bookmark everything ahead of time to make it easy when the sales start so my size isn’t sold out (and yours too)! Yes, I’m that girl that’s shopping for herself because my holiday shopping’s pretty much done.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else, this guide has all the best of the Black Friday Deals I could find between myself and other LiketoKnow.it bloggers. I’ll feature them all on my LikeToKnow.it/evedawes profile too.
I do most of my shopping online because it’s just easier for me. Store mirrors give me anxiety and I definitely am not going to be queuing up on Black Friday. I’ll keep updating this blog to let you know when sales are going live as some retailers haven’t released details yet.
Black Friday Sale shopping Tips
1) Stay home: save the stress, gas, and your feet and shop faster using size and category filters while staying warm and comfy.
2) Don’t get distracted- shop for want you want and check out and then browse later so what you actually wanted hasn’t sold out.
3) Plan ahead: Bookmark your favorite items and websites and sign up for their emails (you can always unsubscribe later) to be the first to shop the sales.
Black Friday Cruelty Free Beauty Deals
Sephora Black Friday Sale
Sephora has a whole Black Friday sale section to check out. Some of my favorite cruelty free brands from Sephora include Kat Von D, (liquid eyeliner, setting powder and foundation), Tarte (mascara and foundation), and Urban Decay (primer spray, setting spray, and 24/7 pencil eyeliners).
She has a massive up to 60% off sale which includes:
Kat Von D Anti Precision eyeliner-great for smokey black lined eyes $9.50 was $19
Lock It Brightening Powder – I use this to set my under eye concealer and brighten. It doesn’t cake and you only need to use a little. $12.50 was $25
Kat Von D Lock-It Precision Powder Brush #25 – I use this for my under eye powder, it’s super soft and doesn’t create lines/streaks or pull your skin. $16 was $32
Dawes Custom Cosmetics VIP Exclusive Black Friday Sale

Black Friday Fashion Finds
I buy all my clothes online from 3 places: Revolve, ASOS, and Femme Luxe Finery. It’s very rare I deviate. Creature of habit? Maybe but more because I love the variety of designers and price points they offer.
Because there are so many Black Friday sales, I narrowed it down to the 3 I shop from. With Revolve, while it’s tempting to filter by price low to high I actually recommend doing the reverse during sales so you can snag the designer sale finds rather than a $10 tee because if you do the math, you’re actually saving more.
Go for those statement pieces and classics that never go out of style.
In 2018, Revolve offered customers up to 65 percent off items for their Black Friday sale stylecaster.com so fingers crossed they’ll step up again in 2019.
ASOS always has great Black Friday-Cyber Monday sales, last year ASOS took 20% off everything! We don’t know what’s happening this year yet but they’re promising they’re going to have massive discounts on your favorite styles, including coats, jackets, sneakers, party dresses, suits, plus loads more. Can’t wait? Check out the ASOS Outlet for up to 70% off big-brand deals right now. I’ll keep updating this blog to let you know when sales are going live.
Femme Luxe Finery 50% Off Pre Black Friday Sale
You know I get so many of my clothes from here. Super affordable on trend pieces. They have a pre black friday sale going on right now which means you can bet they’re going to have a killer Black Friday sale too. But if you don’t want your size to sell out, I’d shop their pre Black Friday sale now, I did!
Black Friday Tech Deals
Walmart has the best deal I can find as you get up to a $450 gift card with purchase when you upgrade online. The offer’s valid on select Apple or Samsung phones purchased on qualifying AT&T or Verizon device payment plans from November 27- 28th 2019 and December 1 – 2nd 2019.
They’re pretty much on everyone’s wishlist so a good bet if gifting someone else (or shopping for yourself). The new AirPods Pro have the same long battery life and connectivity as the originals but they now have active noise cancellation, water resistance and silicone ear tips for a tighter fit for my smaller eared friends. They take at least one to four weeks to ship, so if you’re Christmas shopping order now. It might not be a big discount but anything’s better than nothing, especially if you were already planning on getting them.
Amazon Apple AirPods Pro $234.98 (Save $14.02)
iTouch Wearables iFitness Pulse Fitness Tracker
You’ve seen me writing about these in the Best Tech Gifts for Your Tech Obsessed Friends well now they have a ridiculously good sale! Their iFitness Pulse fitness tracker was $65 but they’re now $29.99 and no code is needed.
We all know smart watches help our fitness goals but these come with lots of different strap options to keep fashion in mind. Features include: calorie tracker, alarm, camera remote, connected GPS and Pedometer. It works with any smart phone carrying iOS 7.2 and up or Android 4.4 and up the iFitness Pulse mobile app is free (available in the Apple and Google Play stores).
23andMe Health + Ancestry Service: Personal Genetic DNA Test Including Health Predispositions, Carrier Status, Wellness, and Trait Reports
I haven’t personally done this but I’ve heard great things about it. Especially seeing how genetics can influence your chances of developing certain health conditions and if you’re a carrier for certain inherited conditions. You can find out details like your taste and smell preferences and why you like and hate certain things.
