Happy Friday! This week flew by, didn't it!? I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week... I feel so unprepared for the holidays - they've crept up on me so quickly! Good thing next week (and the week after) are known for being the biggest sale and shopping time of the year. I plan on trying to get most, if not all, of my Christmas shopping done completely by Dec 1! I have a ton of good sale and shopping guides in store for you guys next week, so make sure you swing by the blog! For today, here are a few of my favorite things I stumbled upon this week, as well as some of the top sales (of course!). Have a great weekend!
