Happy Black Friday!! If you follow me on my socials (if you don’t you really should, links in the sidebar) you would have seen me mention that I was taking part in a Facebook Live event for Place D’Orleans, to preview the Black Friday deals they have going on today. Well, it happened last night and we had a blast!! I was initially really nervous about it, I hate public speaking, so I never really do anything like this. I never even talk in my Insta-stories (I hate the sound of my voice, I’m sure some of you can relate), but when the offer came up I couldn’t pass it up. I just thought of it as an opportunity to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something new!
We were ready to go and went live at 8:30 last night but then had technical issues. We figured things out and were back and better. Myself, Chantal and Ashley had such a fun time sharing our favourite $50 and under Black Friday picks we found at Place. Here are a few of mine:
H&M has an exclusive Black Friday collection on sale today, that features black pieces that I thought were perfect for holiday gifting as well as for your holiday party looks. My favourite piece has to be the black bomber jacket with the tiger embroidery on the front (In the first picture). Bombers have been so trendy this year so I think this one would make a great gift at only $20! I also really like the sparkly body suits in the collection. They’re a great pick for your holiday looks.
Aldo is killing the Black Friday game with 50% off!! I loved these cute flats they have for $32. There in a gorgeous deep plum color that’s perfect for the season.
La Vie en Rose has some great deals if you’re looking to stay comfy and cozy for the holidays. I love these super cute ‘punny’ undies they have like this “Snow much fun” pair in the first picture. You can get yourself 5 for $25 in the sale! I also absolutely loved this pajama top (Picture 2)! It’s in this gorgeous bright red and on it is what is pretty much my motto at the moment since I’m slowly dying as I near the end of this semester.
A favourite thing of mine to gift and receive are candles or really anything that smells good really. I loved this pretty diffuser from Clair de Lune and the beautiful packaging it came in. It’s on sale now for $14.99 down from $25.99.
For the book word, aka my little sister who is also a major Potter head, the newest addition to the Harry Potter collection; Fantastic Beasts, can be found on sale at Coles!
- Dynamite: 30% off
- Capital Optical: 50% off all Gucci sunglasses and 50% off all Gucci frames with prescription lens purchase (Applies to in stock inventory)

To wrap things up, I had a great time last night, I pushed myself outside my comfort zone (successfully I think), found out and shared some amazing deals and got some great ideas for my Christmas shopping! If you didn’t catch us live last night you can watch here. Also, I put together a little video of my outfit and some behind the scene clips of it all! Watch it here 🙂
