Happy Thanksgiving!  I swear each year the holidays roll around faster.  I cannot believe that it is Thanksgiving and that tomorrow is one of my all time favorite shopping days of the entire year!  In the past I was an in store Black Friday shopper, but these days with my boys that’s not as easy as it used to be, so online it is!  In this post I’m sharing some of my favorite retailers to shop at for Black Friday and the coupon codes that you will need.  I will also be updating this post to include Cyber Monday deals as I see them.  Enjoy!

“People will stare.  Make it worth their while.” -Tom Ford

my one year monat results


I saw this quote the other day and immediately started to write this post.  Seriously, I grabbed a pen and paper with my kids climbing all over me and started to scribble down a lot of what is written below.  I feel like this is a quote that absolutely goes hand in hand and needs to be embraced by everyone in network marketing.

Since starting with Monat and almost a year later, starting my blog, I’m sure people have had a lot of things to say about me.  I am someone that said (and meant!) that I would never get into network marketing.  I would never be “one of those people”.  I have been approached by so many of my friends over the past few years asking to sell things and nothing felt like it was really for me.  The whole “side hustle” gig was just not my thing.

A Little Back Story

Well, then I had my boys back to back and lost A LOT of hair.  You guys, my hairline was growing smaller by the day and that is absolutely not an exaggeration.  If you’ve dealt with hair loss for any reason you know what I am talking about.  It’s not easy!

I don’t know about you, but although I have a major love for Fall, I am just not quite ready for Summer to be over.  There’s nothing like softening the blow the end of Summer brings like some major Labor Day sales!  I’ve rounded up a few of my top picks from a few of my favorite places to shop, so let’s dive right in!


Sale Dates: August 31-September 9

Here are a few of the looks that I’m loving that are included in the sale at Nordstrom.

This jacket is super cute, so versatile and also comes in camo!  It’s 50% off, so snag it while you can!

I purchased this BP plaid during the anniversary sale and absolutely love it!  It’s even cheaper this weekend!

Old navy jean haul

I don’t know about you, but I have a very hard time finding good jeans that fit me nicely. Being 5’10” a lot of things end up being on the shorter side for me. During one of my recent Old Navy trips I was determined to find a nice pair of black denim that was not distressed. I needed a clean pair and didn’t own one yet. Well, not only did I find them, but I also found three other pairs of jeans that I left the store with. You guys, FOUR pairs of jeans in one visit?! Who am I?! I’ve never been so lucky at any store with jeans, so naturally I needed to tell you about it!

I should also add that there is a huge sale right now! Thru 8/29 you will receive 40% off everything and you can earn super cash thru September 7th. If you haven’t heard about Old Navy super cash yet, you receive a $10 coupon for every $25 you spend. Yum!

Everyone needs a pair of clean black jeans

I was on the hunt for a pair for awhile and even better when they are only $24.50! You guys! The fabric is soft and I went with my usual size 4 and got them in long length. They come in regular and short length, too. I have already worn these a ton and must say that they wash very well. I turn them inside out to wash and hang them to dry. I don’t dry any of my jeans because I don’t want to lose any length! They also have some stretch to them which is nice, but not so much stretch that they are falling off after some wear. Really, just the right amount! You can find them here.

I was so happy with these I had to try other pairs too!

Next up are my go to white jeans

Would you believe these are the same pair of jeans, but in white! I’ve posted about these before and it’s because I absolutely love them. How many pairs of white jeans have you tried on and you can see right thru them? Like, oh hi there’s my underwear! Not with these! They are a bright white and NOT see through- also they’re on sale for under 25 bucks! Win win! Check them out here.

Super skinny blue jeans

I was on a kick the day I went and found these jeans, too! I don’t have many pairs of denim that aren’t distressed so once I tried these on I quickly made the decision they were an actual NEED! I sized up to a 6 in these as they fit a little tighter and they will be on repeat for sure! You can find this pair here. They’re under $25, ya just can’t beat it!

Naturally, I had to throw some distressing into the mix

Finally, the last pair I purchased during my jean haul were these babies…Old navy distressed denim

I have legit worn these multiple, multiple times already. The fit is perfection and I am a sucker for the distressed lived in look! These have a slight stretch and have quickly become one of my go-to pairs. They are just $30 and go with so many things. You can find them here.

Quick overview

I must say Old Navy does not disappoint! I haven’t shopped there for jeans in so long and I was really missing out. Have you tried Old Navy jeans? What is your go to pair?

XO, Sarah

Hi all! I’m so excited to see so many new faces here and thought it would be nice to share a little about my family.

My family

A Little About Us

My husband Mikey and I have been married for coming up on 6 years and together for almost 10. It really is just so crazy how time flies!  We met playing volleyball- and guys, I may be a giant, but I am not good at volleyball! I’ll do a post soon on the story of how we met.  He is my biggest cheerleader and supporter and I could not have found a better partner in life.

We are blessed to have two boys that are very close in age at 16 months apart. It is such a busy time let me tell ya!



Vinny aka “Ninny” or “Nins” as Jojo calls him, is our 3 year old. Guys, who’s with me on this- age 3 is so much more challenging than age 2! He is strong willed, super smart and is not a fan of bedtime. He loves anything involving super heroes or Halloween and would love to dress in a costume every single day.  He made me a mama and I know he will do amazing things in life.



Joey aka Jojo is our 2 year old. When he was first born Vinny had just turned 16 months old and he started the nickname “Jojo” because he couldn’t say “Joey”.  It just stuck, and I love it! He is the sweetest baby that loves to give and receive hugs, tickles and kisses. Trust me when I tell you there is no one that loves applesauce more than this kid! He also loves to go to bed, which is amazing let me tell ya!  He is kindhearted and I swear he’s an angel sent from heaven.


Maddy is a jackapoo

Can’t forget about our pup!  Maddy is our jackapoo and she is 13 years old. I got her when she was just 4 months old and we have been through so much together! She is very good with the kids and at begging for food, ha!

Burb Life

We moved from the city of Chicago to the suburbs when I was pregnant with Vinny. In the city we lived in a 3 story walk-up and had street parking, so having a house now is great for the kids and our pup. Having a backyard and a garage is the best, lol! It’s the little things, guys!

What We Do

For work, Mikey is a special education teacher for high school students and I work as a nurse part time. I work in the operating room a couple times a week and I also work as a nurse injector for a plastic surgeon injecting Botox and fillers. I also, am in network marketing selling hair care- which by the way is something that I said I would NEVER do and well, here I am! And I’m loving it! Another post on that coming soon.

On the days I don’t work I’m home with the kids and it’s been a nice balance. I plan to share more about my family through this blogging adventure, but thought it would be nice just to give you a quick overview of who we are.

Thanks so much for all of your support and following along on this journey! I’m so glad that you’re here!

XO, Sarah
