It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I love Christmas and the build-up to it, but that’s not what I’m talking about! The Black Friday phenomenon (traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year following Thanksgiving in the US), has made its way to Canada in a big way. I’ve gotten some insane deals this week (all promoted as Black Friday sales), that have really helped me get a jump on Christmas shopping and the actual day hasn’t even arrived yet! The poor cashier at Target reminded me that they were opening at 6 am on Friday as I was leaving and I don’t think I’ll be one of those die-hard shoppers waiting in line anywhere, but I do love me a sale. Speaking of, I scored this emerald top with faux leather sleeves for $12.50 at Costa Blanca. The deep, jewel tone is perfect for this time of year–and for the holidays. Woot woot!
