It went from summer straight to winter in the South. I was not ready. This, that, and the other are all featured in this week’s Tuesday Ten. I spent the last week chasing Black Friday sales and recovering from the cold weather. This week you will find a lot of sale information (it’s Black Friday week) and a few things I tried and got disappointed by the results. Happy Tuesday!
A couple of weeks ago, I found a sweater dress I loved at H&M, and I haven’t stopped buying sweater dresses since. I just ordered this one that I will wear with these boots (the boots are amazing!). I also ordered this one that I will wear with these boots that just arrived. And I ordered this one for 40% off, and it arrived yesterday.
The colder months make the skin on my face especially dry, so I mix a drop of my face oil, I’m on my third bottle of this oil, into my foundation on the back of my hand before I apply it. My foundation goes on much smoother, and my skin appears a little dewy.
As I have gotten older, my hair seems to be getting thinner, dryer, and more brittle. From everything I have found on the interwebs, it’s normal. I’m not happy about it, so I do what I can to protect the hair I have to grow stronger if possible. I have been taking this vitamin on and off for a couple of years. When I take them consistently, I notice a difference, but once I stop taking them, my hair returns to it’s normal, aging state. I just ordered this vitamin that reportedly fights hair loss. Stay tuned for my review on the results.
Baublebar is having a 25% off sale, so I ordered two of this ring to stack. I had these earrings in my cart until I realized that they are almost identical to these earrings that I just bought last week.
Black Friday sales have already started, and I have been watching them daily. I look for significant discounts on investment pieces. I have only a handful of designer pieces purchased at full-price. I purchased this Boyy bag 30% off at Net-A-Porter, and I am currently stalking a few other handbags. If you want to add an investment piece to your wardrobe, Black Friday is the time to do it. Neiman Marcus, Farfetch, Matchesfashion, Net-A-Porter, Orchard Mile, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, and Shopbop are having designer sales.
Two years ago, I bought a teddy coat at Free People, and it has been one of my favorite coats ever. After purchasing this coat, I became obsessed with teddy coats, and now I own four, and I am always on the search for another to add to my collection. I want to add one in a bold color. Teddy coats are on sale everywhere right now, and I love this one, this one, and this one. This one looks just like my favorite from Free People, and it’s under $50.
While I was having a facial last week, I complained about my dry hands. My aesthetician graciously put some lotion on my hands and put them into one of these. I immediately came home and ordered one. I use it on my feet as well. This set is the perfect moisturizer for hands and feet, and it smells incredible.
During the cold months, a great way to stay warm outside is to layer with this lightweight jacket underneath my coat. It’s waterproof as well.
I love Peter Thomas Roth products, so at the recent Sephora sale, I picked up his Peptide 21™ Amino Acid Exfoliating Peel Pads. I was disappointed. After using these for two weeks, I noticed no difference and will not repurchase them. I exchanged them for the daily exfoliating pads I have used at least six boxes of and will continue to use.
I bought this pair of OTK boots (on sale now) and am contemplating returning them. After receiving the three pairs of slouch boots that I ordered, I am obsessed. I have two pairs of OTK boots from last year (one is pictured above), and that is probably enough. Between the slouch, knee, and combat boots, do I have room for more OTK boots? But, can you ever have too many pairs of boots or shoes?
Have you tried anything new recently and were disappointed? Have you tried anything new recently that you loved?
