Holiday Wish List

In the holiday season, I feel like it is so easy to be consumed with buying presents and spending countless hours shopping. As great as that it, I believe that understanding the real meaning of Christmas is just as important, without letting presents completely take focus. This Christmas, I honestly didn't do that much shopping. I honestly just purchased small things here and there, but that was just about it. 

Although I did some small shopping for my family, I actually didn't really get anything for myself. But here are some things that came across my radar this holiday season! 

What are some things on your holiday wish list? 

Here's What I Wanted to Buy During Black Friday

It is no secret that aside from Thanksgiving, millions of Americans look forward to Black Friday. This coveted holiday is filled with deals, huge savings, and some of the "lowest" prices of the season. But unlike those same Americans, I've actually never participated in the Black Friday madness. The part that ultimately frightens me is getting up early only to have to wait in a super long line or mad dash through hoards of people just to add items to my cart. When it comes to shopping, I definitely enjoy the pleasure of going at my own pace, taking my time to explore different items and just ultimately not have to rush the entire process. 

Although Black Friday isn't my thing, I know plenty of people that were able to get amazing deals on things that never go on sale; or even things that never seen a discount. The great thing about not participating in Black Friday shopping this year or any other year for is the ability to admire great deals from afar! Below, check out some of the things that I wanted to buy during Black Friday, but didn't.
