le vendredi noir

Since Britain doesn't really have Thanksgiving

(I know, shocker, right?)...

there isn't really a "Black Friday" to follow.

Except if you have access to 

ye olde world wide web

and can shop the sales

from your nifty computers.

I, honestly, haven't thought

for a second

about Christmas gifts this year.

I don't know what I really want

nor do I have any clue

what I want to give to people.

But man...

with deals like today,

it's hard not to get cracking.

Even if there wasn't an ocean

separating me from the shopping madness,

I would never head out to shop today.

But browsing online...

at home...

looking all terrible and bloated

after our Thanksgiving dinner last night?

Well, sure.

I'll play the Christmas elf

and share some of the sales I'm most excited about:

Kate Spade

( 75% on

selected items

like my Logan Square diaper bag-



Little Hip Squeaks 

(25% everything + 7AM door busters. Use code: GOBBLE)

You can also find an amazing Black Friday list of handmade retailers here on

their blog


Gilt Group

(Free shipping on tons of flash sales. I bought

these baby tights

for $10)


(Pretty much 10%- No codes needed!)


( 30% | use code: HOLIDAY)


(I'm a sucker for

cheap DVDs


What about you?

Do you brave the madness of shopping on Black Friday

and I guess, contribute to it, also?

Or do you hang around home

and play your odds with what's available online?
