Black Friday has come and gone, and most of America was out in the early morning (and even Thanksgiving Eve. The shame!) ready for the deals and steals companies put out to lure us in to spend our money.
I’ll admit, I used to be one of those people who would wake up at early hours, but ever since stores started Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving, the crowds on Friday morning aren’t as crazy as they used to be. While this is great for the customers, it’s kind of sad for the employees who have to work on Thanksgiving.
This year I made a quick stop to Kohl’s and TJ Maxx/Marshall’s this year for a few things. Keep reading to find out what I got!

Vanilla lavender CBD Vape cartridge from CBDistillery.com
This was a night before online purchase, but I still count it in my Black Friday goodies. I had been wanting to try this place out for the longest time, and I figured with all the sale going on it was the right time. I had been using the same CBD cart since this summer when I picked it up at Lucky Leo’s outside stall on my vacation. It was watermelon flavored, but I didn’t really get the watermelon taste. I lost the container it came in, so I don’t even know what brand it was.
CBDistillery is a brand that has been vouched for time and time again over on the CBD subreddit. I also know someone who is familiar with their work and gives them an approved thumbs up.
I can’t wait to try it out and give a review on that. Finger’s crossed it makes it to New England without breaking.

Fitbit Versa Lite Edition
I have wanted a Fitbit for years, but they were always too expensive for my budget, and I wanted one that could track my swimming, and those were even more than the regular ones.
So I waited it out and finally got one for a good price and is water resistant. That means it can track my swimming and I will finally have a more accurate way of estimating my work out.
While I was in Kohl’s buying my Fitbit, I came across a steal of a weighted blanket. Now, I love me my weighted blanket. It now travels with me whenever I have to stay overnight somewhere. It’s a pain because it’s heavy, but I can’t really sleep without it.
Since I won’t be visiting family this Christmas, I decided to one family member a weighted blanket. They also suffer from anxiety and depression and I think it could be beneficial to them in their own sleep and comfort.
Minnetonka Boots from TJ Maxx
I was always one of those girls who wanted Ugg boots but never was able to acquire myself a pair. However, I have tried various other versions of boots that look like the signature Ugg style.
I had a cheap pair from Primark that were about $5 but when I was in TJ Maxx, right before I went to check out, I saw the boots section and decided to give it a go. I have tiny feet so finding shoes in stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall’s are pretty hard because I need a size 5.5/6 depending on the style of shoe, and they’re not common where I am.
However, I came across the boots, and they were only $39.99, which was a fantastic deal! I have a pair of slippers from the same company and they’re amazing. The only issue is that the brown outside part bleeds a little and got on my (brand new!) sweat pants that I also bought.
Moda Luxe Boston purse in Burgundy
I had wanted to find me a new purse for a while. I had a rather small Betsy Johnson purse that was pink and black with stitching made to look like cat faces. It’s absolutely adorable and I love it. Unfortunately me wallet only fits in the purse in one specific way. I had been dealing with it for a while, but ultimately decided it was time for a new one.
I searched TJ Maxx, and there wasn’t anything in my price range, so I head over to Marshall’s. I was almost ready to give up when I saw through the rack of purses that there was one that had fallen on the ground. And it was perfect!
I love the color, I love the firmness of the bag, and it’s just spacious enough to have my wallet, some lotion, and a few other things.
OPI mini set: Scotland
I don’t know about you guys, but I kind of hate larger bottles of nail polish. I don’t use enough nail polish to need a standard sized bottle, so smaller sample sized bottles, and small gift sets are perfect for me.
I saw this in Marshall’s and loooooved the colors. They’re a more purple/mauve and blueish matte colors, and shimmery purple.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream
This is the final thing in my haul that’s worth mentioning (I also got some desk organizers, coconut oil, and a body scrub, but those aren’t exciting). Another Marhsall’s find (though I also saw this in TJ Maxx but the jar had already been opened) I’m a big fan of the First Aid Beauty brand. I tried it for the first time in a Sephora sample and gave it shot that year. I hadn’t really gone back to it due to the amount and price.
So finding something like this for cheaper than usual is always welcome. I’m always looking for new things to hydrate my skin with. And with winter fast approaching in New England, my skin needs all the hydration it can get.
Turning the heat on dries my skin out, and I’m already using a humidifier, so a potentially more hydrating face cream would be great for my night routine.
