Sunday 7: Black Friday Mania

Still in a food coma, but ready to shop, shop, shop.

No. 1. Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving was lovely, and I think I will be full on pie for the next several weeks. It was so nice to have a few days to reconnect with family, and enjoy some of our favorite dishes. We hosted and served all the traditional usuals like turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, but I always love to throw a fall salad into the mix as well. I love this salad because the colors look beautiful on the table too:

  • 1/2 C, feta cheese

No. 2. Studio McGee Presets Sale

The Studio McGee presets are on sale this week! When I started Studio McGee on Instagram years ago, I took all of my own photos, and I know firsthand how hard it can be to take and edit great interior photos. We worked with photographer Jess Kettle to create a simple solution, and the way they adjust to light without losing any detail impresses me every time. I honestly love to use these presets to edit my personal photos (like the ones above), too. Use code OHJOY for 25% off through 12/3.

No. 3. McGee & Co Black Friday Sale

The McGee & Co Black Friday sale is still going strong, and I have picked a few more of my favorite pieces from the shop. The older girls and I have been hauling bins up from the basement, and trimming the tree all week. I love to mix old, new, and sentimental. This year I’m eyeing a few holiday pieces from the collection to add to our tradition. Our McGee & Co. Christmas trees are incredible! They are made from molds of actual trees, and look so realistic.

No. 4. Shopping all the sales

I have a love/hate relationship with Black Friday – so many good deals, so little time! I am adding this, this, and this to my Christmas wish list.

No. 5. Stocking up on beauty favorites

Obviously, now is the time to stock up on a few of my favorite items to have on hand for gifts (and if I happen to slip one under the tree as a gift from me, to me, so be it). I’ve been loving this blush; great for a touch of cheek color when you’re wearing very little makeup to the gym and want to keep things simple.
