5 reasons why Black Friday is ahh-mazing!

Yesterday, most American’s ate way too much pie and celebrated Thanksgiving with their loved ones (we’ll be having our traditional Thanksgiving with friends this Sunday), and today the entire world gets to profit from the American tradition and shop like crazy during Black Friday sales. While I don’t believe in spending money on things you don’t need, just because they are discounted – I do absolutely believe in a good deal! I am quite the professional at sales (if I dare say so myself) and have made amazing bargains in the past. My favorite: The gorgeous faux python Stella McCartney bag at -40%. And because sharing is caring, I’ve round up 5 reasons why Black Friday is absolutely ahh-mazing! Ready, set, shop!

CRAVINGS: holiday ready

With all the coziness yesterday at home, I totally skipped my cravings. And cravings are never to be skipped, right? After all, we have to dream about all those pretty items! This week, I’ve finally found myself getting into the holiday spirit a bit. I am planning first Christmas presents and wearing warmer clothes. This year, I am especially excited about spending the holidays with the family. My brother has been away in Germany for an internship and I can’t wait to spend a few days together with all my loved ones. And speaking of the holidays, I am also looking to update my closet a bit. Aside from gorgeous, lacy underwear (which are always a must during the most romantic season of the year!), I’ve had my eye on a really red nail polish and am on the lookout for the perfect wool coat. Suggestions are welcome, because the baby on my wishlist would make me bankrupt in a heartbeat. Oh, and don’t even get me started on that Valentino bag …

NEW IN: chanello #1

Oh Chanel! It seems that it is an endless lovestory for most girls – and I am definitely no exception! While the bags that are on my wishlist will have to wait (for now), I finally splurged on something I had been craving for a long time. Over the past few months and weeks, I repeatedly spotted a Chanel brooch on Caro and Anni’s Instagram feeds. Everytime I saw it, I fell in love a little more. I had been to Chanel a few times, but they only had brooches from the supermarket collection in store. Then, this Friday I finally got lucky. And now it is mine ♥ Chanello no.1 in my closet!

CRAVINGS: Sunday at home

Yesterday I saw a quote on Instagram that read “stop the glorification of busy” and for some reason it really stuck with me. It seems that now adays the busier you seem, the cooler and more important you are. Admittedly, we live in a very fast-paced society and you do need to stay busy to be able to keep up – I’ve found that to be more true than ever being self-employed. If you don’t get s*** done, someone else will jump at the opportunity. But like most things in life, it is all about the right balance. Recently, I’ve made it a point to keep work in a Monday through Friday time frame and really try to “turn off” on the weekends and keep myself from answering emails past 8pm. Today I slept in until 11, yesterday it was 11:30. And I love it. Just like today will be all about painting my nails, good food, friends and lounging on the couch all day. Because guess what? It is ok to NOT be busy some times. Happy Sunday!
