I can not believe it is this time of year again! Well actually I can, the snow has been on the ground since the beginning of November here in Toronto and myself and Ricky already have our Christmas tree up in anticipation for the holidays. We will (hopefully, if all things go according to plan) be splitting our time between here in Toronto and back home in Ireland and I can not contain my excitement any longer. Since mid-November retail chains around the world have started releasing promotion campaigns for their Black Friday and Cyber Weekend sales. Which I am not mad at, as it has given me ample time to browse through stores and offers I am personally interested in and can narrow the search down to something I hope everyone reading this will find helpful. This sale season is the perfect opportunity to invest in the things you have already fallen inlove with throughout the year and save yourself some money whether it be beauty, fashion or technology related.
Whether you are shopping for yourself or stocking up on Christmas gifts for your loved ones this weekend I hope you enjoy browsing through the collection of items I have put together from some of my favourite stores and remember to spend your money wisely. I have chosen these brands and products as they are pieces I truly adore and would buy otherwise, not just because they have a discount code.
I have tried to include as many products that are available worldwide or at least offer worldwide shipping, but please be aware that some links might only be available within Canada or the UK and Ireland.

The main Black Friday sale commenced on November 22 and it still continues. Amazon has something for everyone and I personally like to shop here for home and lifestyle. Browse some of my favourite items:
ASOS is easily one of my favourite sites when it comes to high street essentials and trend pieces. The company offers an extremely speedy delivery time and a free return policy if anything is not quite right! ASOS Premier gives you next day delivery for an entire year if you shop online often. Right now they are currently offering 25% off select items! Below is a gather up of some of the items I am currently obsessed with.
Unfortunately not available in the UK & Ireland. However there is ways and means around it – there is companies that are able to provide you with a US mailing address and then forward those items to your home address for a fee. Just be sure to research into it fully before signing up as some are more reasonably priced than others. This is easily my favourite store and I probably spend way too much money here to begin with. This seasons must have(s) include:
Beauty Bay was my holy grail site before moving to Canada – and they actually ship here too which is a great option. I slept in on the Beauty Bay Black Friday sale last year and by the time I was able to access the site the items available were extremely scarce, take my advice and be online ready to go. Here are some of my favourites:
Best Buy is an electronic chain store in Canada, not entirely different from Argos and Curry’s PC World in the UK & Ireland. Everything you can think of is available here and my wishlist is probably the length of my arm by this stage… the temptation! Especially when they have a store wide sale.
Another favourite of mine! Feel Unique offer a wide selection of beauty products from your favourite nude lipstick to your can’t live without silver shampoo! Everything you could possibly need from just about every brand you can think of is available and I have rounded up some favourites:
