Happy Friday beauties! Got any fun plans this weekend? I’m dying to know, so leave me a comment below! I want to start off by apologizing for the lack of blog posts this week! I’ve been busy pre-filming videos for you guys, as I’m going home to Minnesota next week, then off to Cape Cod for a bachelorette party! I am beyond excited to hit up the East Coast for what I can only imagine will be a craaazy weekend!

I also want to extend a huge thank you, to all of you who have taken my survey I sent out to those of you who are subscribed to my newsletter! It means the world to me, and your feedback is so appreciated and helpful! I always want to create content that you guys truly want, so I’m keeping your comments in mind when planning out future blog posts as well!

Since I’m traveling all month long, I’ve been doing a lot of online shopping to prepare for my trips! Since you guys always ask me what I’m wearing, I thought I’d compile a list of some mega sales going on this weekend (for any shopaholics like myself) to treat yourself and save a ton while you’re at it! Yes please!

Below are the sales you do not want to miss! I’ve also compiled some pieces from each sale that are on my wish list, and that I may just have to pick up for myself!

*this post includes affiliate links. for more info, check out my disclosure*

All Saints – 50% off

Eve Ankle Jeans: $71 (was $178)

These jeans have some stretch, making them mega comfy. Plus they’re ankle jeans, aka they will fit us short girls! They’re also currently in stock in every size, so get your hands on these while you can!

MacArthur Boot: $180 (was $450)

Hot damn, these boots are fire! I have too many black boots to justify another pair at the moment, but I had to include these if you’re on the hunt for a quality, investment boot! You can seriously wear these every day, they’re extremely practical and a closet staple. These also come in dark grey! Still up there in price, but compared to their usual, you’re getting an amazing deal on a shoe to last.

Passport Holder: $39 (was $100)

What says spontaneous trip better than treating your non-existent passport to a chic holder? No but really, I’ll be picking this bad boy up while it’s on sale! I have some travels planned in the near future, and it’s always a good idea to keep your passport concealed and identifiable at all times!

BLOOMINGDALES: Extra 20% off (code: summer)

Free People Vegan Leather Jacket: $118 (was $200)

The items I invest in most in my closet are jackets. They add the finishing touch to any outfit, and you get your use out of them more than anything! Plus they wear really well over time. I’m in love with this studded moto jacket from Free People, and for all you vegans out there, it’s faux leather! Hell to the yeah!

Nike FlyKnit Sneakers: $97 (was $130)

I’ve been craving a new pair of workout sneaks for so long! I just hate spending money on them, hah! So when I saw these were on sale this weekend, I got really excited! If you love working out, or want a new pair for the school year coming up, now is the time to buy these bad boys! They have a few different styles on sale this weekend, so be sure to browse around and utilize the markdown while you can! These also come in different patterns if that’s more your thing!

Star Studded Moto Jacket: $59 (was 150)

Holy sale! When I saw this I knew I HAD to tell you guys, because it is so damn cute! I believe Sarah has this jacket (not sure if it’s the same brand), but it looks about the same, and she looks killer in it! The star studs are such an unexpected detail, you are sure to get compliments all night long. A great jacket if you don’t like branching out too much with crazy colors, but still wanna step it up from the basic all-black jacket!

Stuart Weitzman Highland Boots: $478 (was $800)

Okay babes, I’m normally not the type to post splurge items, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to alert you that my all-time favorite shoes are on THIS big of a sale (40% off to be exact)! I’ll be honest, I can hardly justify spending this much money on any clothing, handbag, or accessory, but after lusting after these bad boys for over a year, I saved up and made them mine. Needless to say, I cannot believe these are over $400 off this weekend!! These boots are everywhere and have been in style for years. Sure, there are cheaper versions out there, but these fit like an absolute dream. Whether you’re into fashion, treating yourself for working your ass off, or have been lusting after these for a while…you cannot pass up this discount.

West Elm: 30-40% off

Macrame Pillow: $31 (was $39)

Macrame is my middle name these days. Macrame curtains? Yes please. Macrame wall hangings? I want 5. Macrame pillows on sale? I’ll take them all! This white pillow is sure to pair nicely with any bedroom or living room decor. Also an adorable touch to that accent chair you have in the corner of your room!

Wool Rug: $319 (was $400)

You guys went bonkers over my living room rug from my latest Yippee Move With Me! episode, so if you’ve been searching endlessly for the perfect rug to spice up or section off your space, you may want to get this adorable babe while she’s on sale! Wool rugs are expensive AF: Alex and I went rug shopping in store, only to find they were all about $10,000. TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. FOR A RUG. What? I didn’t sign up for this #adult life! Yeah, needless to say, it took me months to finally find a rug that didn’t break the bank, yet would withstand being walked all over. While mine isn’t wool, this one is, meaning it should be super high-quality and last you a long time. I love the print, as it brings in some pops of color while still being neutral and not in your face. This also comes in a few larger sizes if you want to invest!


Let me know below what your favorite items from this weekend’s sales are! Did I miss any?! Help a sista out! Once again, I’ll be doing an Instagram Roundup on Monday, for all of the looks I rocked this month that may have not been featured on the blog! I love you guys so much, have a great weekend!

Okay, not really. But I did see a Christmas tree shop on my way to Malibu a few weeks ago…I’m just as confused as you are.

Anywho, it’s Amazon Prime Day!! I can’t say I’ve ever been a huge Black Friday shopper, I’m more of a Cyber Monday girl. You know, something about crazies running around, snatchin’ up those deals, playing bumper cars with their overfilled shopping carts does not entice me in the slightest. I’d rather make a fresh pot of coffee, turn on the latest episode of The Bachelorette, and blackout from all the online shopping I’m about to do.

All the deals I’m about to show you that you do not want to miss out on are for Amazon Prime members only. Seriously, if you haven’t signed up for it yet, it will change your life. Or make you lazier. Or make you buy more things you don’t need. But all in all, it will change your life. You can test the waters with a free trial before a paid membership of $99/year, which I highly suggest doing if you are curious in the slightest. The membership gets you free 2 day shipping every time you order from Amazon, or you have the option to choose regular shipping, in exchange for a credit to your account for future purchases.

I use Amazon for just about anything and everything: monthly alkaline water delivery, books, home décor, food, electronics, dog supplies, and more. Below you’ll find my hot, hot, hot list of items you should snatch up while they’re on mega sale, today only!

*this post includes affiliate links. for more info, check out my disclosure*

Amazon Alexa | $100 (normally $180)

I’d be lying if I said the Alexa speaker was “not that fun” or “just a normal speaker”. I bought one for Sarah’s birthday last year, and just bought one last week for my mom! Not only does she have great sound quality, but she is also Bluetooth activated, meaning you can ask her to play a song, playlist, or just about any question! With a few other accessories, you can ask her to turn on/off your lights, or order more toilet paper. It’s so fun, and not to mention, a unique conversation starter!


Clarisonic Mia2 | $110 (normally $170)

If I’m getting one thing on this list, it might just have to be the Clarisonic. These are probably the most raved about sonic facial cleansing brushes out there, and for good reason. These cleansing brushes are said to cleanse your face 6x better than your hands in just one minute. Great for deep pore cleansing, and preparing the skin for serums and moisturizers. This sale covers any of the 4 colors: white, purple, pink, or blue. Yes please.

(The Mia1 is also on sale today, for just $83! These babies come in hot pink, purple, light pink, or white. Check these out here!)


Instant Pot | $90 (normally $130)

HOLY CRAP DON’T LET THIS DEAL PASS BY! Last year I bought this Instant Pot on Prime Day, and I have never been happier with a purchase (and all the money I saved!) Ok, so most of you may be thinking *what the heck is an Instant Pot and why is she shoving it down my throat*. This handy appliance lets you make any kind of rice or quinoa, soup, stew, chili, oatmeal, and more! It’s as easy as throwing the ingredients in, pressing a button, and letting it do its thang while you got a million other things to do. Sometimes I’ll just pour in any veggies I need to cook before they go bad, add some beans and veggie broth, and before I know it, I got a delicious soup I can eat all week! This is a kitchen staple I wish I knew about while I was in college—it would have made my life so much easier!

Echo Dot | $35 (normally $50)

The dot is an accessory I mentioned earlier that allows the Alexa speaker to make your life even easier. With the Echo Dot, you can control your lights, fans, garage doors, sprinklers, and even order Domino’s or an Uber ride. Hello convenience!


Lace Bralette | $9.60 (normally $16)

It’s never a bad idea to stock up on bralettes, especially now that it’s hot AF outside. I’m a big fan of not wearing bras, especially sticky bras, in the summertime. Instead, I opt for nothing at all or a bralette. These lace bralettes are 40% off today, and come in 4 colors. The racerback style allows for flexibility with what tops you can wear it with, and has a cute scalloped edge. I’ll take all four please!

Mr. Coffee Café Barista $200 now $105

College kids and young adults alike, get your hands on this coffee maker while it’s nearly $100 off! You can make espressos, cappuccinos, or creamy lattes with this baby. Perfect for any coffee-lover who loves to switch it up and try new drinks. Plus you’ll save time and money in the long run without those daily Starbucks trips!


Kindle | $50 (normally $80)

I can’t keep up with technology these days, despite my career in the Internet-sphere. One thing I always go back to is my handy little Kindle—a device I used to never see the point of, and now accompanies me on most of my travels. Great for storing books you want to read on the plane, without the bulk and weight of throwing them in your bag. Plus it doesn’t hurt your eyes like an iPad would.


iRobot Roomba | $250 (normally $375)

I know I have a lot of electronics on this list, but can you help my millennial self? I’m just a big fan of convenience, and making my life easier. Sue me! You’ve probably heard of these portable vacuums before, or at least seen a cat riding around on one in a Facebook video. If you hate vacuuming, or just get a thrill out of watching this little device go around your floors and clean up your messes, you have to take advantage of this sale!


Seagate External Hard Drive | $60 (normally $77)

Of course I just bought a new external hard drive last week. Go figure! These are a must-have item for any student or creative! You know when your computer gets really slow because you’ve basically filled up your hard drive with all your schoolwork or photos? Yeah, when that computer breaks, that is not gonna be fun. To help prevent that, I store all of my files on these external hard drives. They plug right into your computer, and range from 1TB to 5TB in storage (a MacBook typically has up to 1TB of storage). If you follow me on Twitter, you may remember a few months ago when my external hard drive crashed and I lost about 10 videos and countless files. Had I backed up my files to multiple of these hard drives, I would’ve saved myself tears and time! I suggest starting with two 1TB hard drives, and backing up your work, photos, music, and videos to both. That way, if one ever gets lost or broken somehow, you’re still good to go! These come in 4 colors, so you can easily distinguish them (one for school, one for work, etc.) if you choose!


Clear Chair $92 now $52

I had to throw in one home décor item, but they have so many fun décor pieces on sale, I definitely recommend browsing through all the deals and taking advantage of getting those finishing pieces you’ve been procrastinating buying, or getting a head start on your dorm room decorating! These chairs are not just for dining, but also can be used as desk chairs. Throw a funky blanket over the back, a soft pillow, and you’ve got yourself an adorable accent chair for the corner of your room! Plus, how awesome is it that you don’t have to go through the hassle of trying to fit these chairs in your car to pick them up? Oh, how I love you Prime.

Alright guys, that’s it for my top 10 can’t-pass-up list for prime day! Are there any coveted items of yours that are on sale today that I missed? Let me know in the comments below, and also let me know if you’re getting any of these goodies while they’re on sale today! I’m way too excited about this.
