My first stop was Sephora! I'm not the one for hustle and bustle so I decided to shop online. With the discounts codes I had, I was able to get loads of freebies. I purchased two palettes on sale from Stila and Smashbox. My sister-in-law purchased a few pieces of makeup as well so the total amounted to $60 or so. Ergo, we had free shipping.
|Stila Trendsetting In Tokyo Travel Palette $10.00|
|Smashbox Eye Shadow Palette in Classifeyed $15.00|
How was Black Friday and Cyber Monday for everyone? Mine was utterly eventful both online and in stores. After stuffing myself with turkey, I took a nap and grabbed the hubby's credit card before the break of dawn. I bought a fair amount of clothing for myself and Jordan plus some home supplies.
Even better, I won a $55 CSN giveaway at Mimi's page. I entered the contest not expecting to win but surprisingly, I won! It was timely since my husband's birthday was on the 23rd. He has been wanting a coffee maker for himself and that's precisely what I got him. Being that the Cuisinart coffee maker was originally $74.95but I got it for a reduced price of $59.95. I only had to add $4.95 to the total amount. Compared to the $30 generic one, I chose a trusted brand.
The message that made my day:
hi toni! just wanted to let you know that you won my giveaway! i also sent you an email with the details. congratulations! :D <3, mimi

For Black Friday, my first stop was Target. To my surprise, there wasn't a crowd. No hustle and bustle whatsoever. I spent approximately $70 at my trip to the store.
Things I got:
- 2 fleece pillows for $7.00
- 1 zebra printed plush blanket for $19.99
- cotton head wrap
- 2 Mossimo women's v-neck tops
- 1 white women's turtleneck
- 1 men's thermal sweater for $5.00
- 2 sets of gloves
The plush blanket is amazing! I say that it's mine but Jordan never fails to correct me by saying, "OURS". He loves that blanket more than I do. The pillows are a great bargain! I should have gotten another one. They're so comfortable that I fell asleep soon after resting my head on the pillow.

Our trip to Costco was a quick one. We were one of the first ones there so my sister-in-law and I got free cookbooks. I have yet to try the recipes. I'll be sure to share them with you!
I also went to Tilly's along Ventura. There weren't so much people in the store but the sale was amazing. I didn't want to overspend so I only got two things which cost me approximately $8.00 for both hair pieces.
For Cyber Monday, the hubby and I were looking for rice cookers and we found one on sale for $14.00. It's a definite steal so we most definitely added it to our cart.

That concludes our November shopping spree. I can't wait for Christmas sales! For right now, we have to be frugal for a couple of weeks. I hope everyone had a sweet November!
Before I forget! November was a birthday month for my hubby. We prepared a surprise dinner for him at Magnolia in Pasadena. It was such an intimate night for family.
