Black Friday Goods from Macys, Sephora, The Body Shop

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  I know I did. Of course I ate too much, but it was delicious and spending time with loved ones is always great.  My mom and I were one of the many crazy people who went out at midnight to go shopping.  We did not get back home until 6:00 and I have only gotten two hours of sleep.  Then we went out again this afternoon.  Very well worth it, though.  We got a few gifts checked off the list, and of course got some stuff for us.

Our first stop was Macy's.  The boots are by Style&Co and I got them for $26, and they were originally $79.  That is a fantastic deal, especially considering how sturdy and cozy they are.  There is no way your feet could get cold wearing these.  Plus they will last a long time.  I also picked up some jewelry by I.N.C and Betsey Johnson.  The Betsey Johnson bracelet was 25% off, but the other items were not on sale.  Luckily my mom had a 20% off coupon, so I still got them at a good price.  I got the bracelet for $19.50, the gold I.N.C earrings for $12.25 and the owl earrings were $37.50 ($45 full price).  I just could not resist them.  Besides, owls are special to me because my grandma has always loved them.

Sephora was not exempt from the madness.  Their $10 wonders were great this year.  My mom even found some things.  I think I am most excited to try the Bite palette and Boscia set.  My mom stocked up on Ole Henrikson's three little wonders set and purchased the 18K gold top coat since it was on sale. 

The best deals of the night came fro The Body Shop.  Any three items in the store (excluding gift sets) were $30.  Plus with any $30 purchase, you got 2 gift sets for $25.  And these were not tiny, crappy gift sets either.  I also had a coupon to get one of the Beautifying Oils for $10 instead of $14, plus a free item.  The free item ended up being a mini Chocomania body butter.  Everything ended up costing $50. 
Stocked up on the peppermint foot soak and scrub.

One of the two gift sets: a full size shower gel and body puree.

Last but not least was JC Penney.  We mostly got gifts for family while we were here, but we also got good deals on things for us.  And this JC Penney has a Sephora, so we picked up more of the $10 wonders, plus a new Kat Von D Palette in Star Crossed, which is gorgeous in person.
