Normally I don't go Black Friday shopping, since the crowds are crazy, and I always have this idea in my head that if I go out shopping today, then someone will push me down and a stampede of human feet will run on top of me. This has caused me to shy away from Black Friday shopping for years.
But not this year.
This year I got dressed (reluctantly), grabbed my purse, and braved the crowds. Traffic was crazy, but since I went out with my mom, it was her that had to deal with psychotic drivers (thank goodness). We hit a lot of stores, but I was unfortunately unable to find some of the things I was really hoping for from my outing.
These things being:
- Cream colored earmuffs
- Black shorts
- A black dress
- A cute black hat
Unfortunately, I couldn't find those things. At least, not at a reasonable price. But I got a few other fantastic things instead!
First off, I'm going to show you the absolute best thing I got during my outing today.
Are you ready for the cuteness?
Is she not the cutest thing ever?!
I don't think I've shown you my newest puppy, Zoey, before. (Don't worry, I'll make a blog post this weekend introducing you.)
But lately, now that it's getting cold, whenever she goes outside she always comes back in shivering like crazy. Even if she's just laying around the house, she'll start shaking since we don't keep our house very warm. So when we went to Petco today, and I saw this adorable little jacket for her, I absolutely had to get it. And she seems so happy now when she wears it. She's no longer shivering, and it doesn't seem to bother her at all.
I was worried she would hate it and we'd have to take it back, but she seems perfectly content with it on. Thank goodness. I was so worried she'd be half-freezing this entire winter.
Now, onto the other things I bought (it isn't much.)
I got three other things this Friday (Well, four, but the fourth is a present for someone. And on the off chance that person decides to visit my blog for some reason, I don't want them seeing it!)
The first is a dress I absolutely fell in love with when I saw it. In case it's hard to tell, the dress itself is pink with a cream-colored (I don't know what the right term for this color is...ivory?) lace overlay. It's incredibly cute!

I love this dress I got from Deb Shops. The only problem is, the back of the dress, down to the hips, it just bare lace. So you can see my back if I wear it. I've never had a dress with an open back before, and have absolutely no idea what to do about a bra. So if any of you have suggestions, I'd like to hear them. The best thing I can think to do is a skin-toned, strapless bra? I'll have to do some research I suppose!
I cannot put into words how much I love these shoes. I have a pair of them already in black, which I loved. But as soon as I saw this color, I knew I had to have them. If you love them as much as I do, you can buy them here, also from Deb Shops. They're the prettiest wine red color I've ever seen on a shoe, and although I have absolutely no idea what to wear them with, I'll think of something/buy something eventually for them. (I couldn't pass them up today though at only $10.) Until then, they'll just be sitting in my closet where I can admire them.
And lastly, I got Hard Candy's Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer. I already tried it on, since I had heard great things about it and wanted to try it right away. I'm actually quite happy with it too! The concealer pencil it comes with is very nice as well. I'll have to do a review sometime to show you all why you should be buying Hard Candy concealer!
My parents did some Black Friday shopping today and got something too. And guess what they got...?
Yep! They snagged an Xbox One today! Now my parents own one, my boyfriend owns one... I'm the only one without!
(Which yes, is my fault since I could have been saving money, instead of just asking for it for Christmas. I am aware.)
Oh well. Less than a month left until I get one of these babies for my very own. (Yay!)
So, I would love to know what you got for Black Friday!
Let me know in the comments below! Or, if you made a blog post about it on your blog, link me! I'd love to see!
