What’s one Friday of the year when you can have a full week of great shopping? Starting today, we’re honoring the spirit of Black Friday while taking things to a whole new (read: awesome) level. For the days leading up to Black Friday (11/25–11/28), we’re introducing new deals exclusive to our Holiday Shop. The catch? You have find them yourself. So go ahead and start hunting—just look for the “Holiday Perk” logo alerting you to the latest finds. (You can also check out our Scavenger Hunt Pinterest board for more on the offers.) And remember: Every new day brings new deals.

Nothing gets us giddy like a good wedding. Katelyn Koepke Lewis, one of our lovely freelance writers, got hitched this October and we couldn’t resist asking her to share her bridal wisdom. The former PR maven and J-school grad recently went back to her editorial roots, working as a feature writer and editor for Be U Weddings, a Chicago-based blogazine. This week, Katelyn’s sharing her newlywed advice, from bridal beauty tricks that you can use post-wedding to how to pick hostess gifts for your new in-laws.
Considering it’s Black Friday and you’re all undoubtedly scouring stores for killer deals (report back!), I thought I’d take the day’s name to heart as color inspiration—for lips! Yep, I’m going there: the vampy, brooding, almost-black lips we saw all over the fall runways. From deep wines to cherry blacks, here are my of-the-moment picks for keeping the pout chic, but not too gothic. (C’mon, you know you have to at least try this dusky, seductive lipstick craze!)

Sleep in on Black Friday and order your holiday gifts from our Holiday Shop or Pop-Up Home Shop instead!
Happy, Thanksgiving! While you’re stuffing your faces with yummy eats, we’re strategizing our plan of attack for holiday shopping. Although we admit that we’ve been too chicken to actually brave the stores on Black Friday, we applaud those who have. We’re perfectly content with sitting home in our pajamas, cashing in on those Cyber Monday online deals. Don’t judge. If you’re hitting the stores or surfing the web, get a head start with this peek at what to expect (on the beauty front).
