FASHION: Black Friday Shopping Haul


As promised, I wanted to share with you all the amazing deals I got this past Friday at Guildford Town Centre. Here is why I find it so great, HELLO! CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DEALS. I mean I used to joke around about how genius it would be if a family could pretend Christmas was the day after boxing day, hitting the stores on the wild but oh-so-worth-it day of crazy shopping deals and get everyone’s gifts all in one day. 

Did someone say $100 gift card giveaway? I would keep scrolling if I were you!

This right here is why I love Black Friday so much, and my love for Guildford Town Centre grew stronger (who knew) after graciously hosting such a fun event at their mall this past weekend. I shopped solo for only a short while, until I bumped into a friend, Salma from The Write Balance. We found deals that were literally mind blowing, including accessories for $2, joggers for $10, and Disney Princess stuffed dolls for under $8. The decision I made to wake up before Sofia on Black Friday was thankfully one that paid off. I got a great start on Christmas shopping and an even better start on filling my wardrobe with some new staples.

As I may have inconspicuously mentioned about, Guildford Town Centre would love to host a giveaway on our site for one lucky reader to take away a $100 gift card to shop their mall. My friend Salma and I were both given $50 gift cards to giveaway on our sites, but we thought combining the two for a grand’er giveaway would be even better. Right? Head on over to Salma’s site after you enter below and check out amazing deals she found here!

So here you have it…. all I ask is, who wants it?!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  1. You got some great finds! If I won I would do some shopping for my girls. My oldest needs some winter wardrobe items, and so does my youngest. Plus it be nice to find them a fancy holiday dress each.

  2. No idea why my name appears as TaTamata

  3. Yay! I love GTC! Sadly didn’t hit the BF sales this year. Wouldn’t you know we got a huge ICBC bill the day before. Ouch!

  14. For Christmas shopping of course!

  15. I’d probably hit up Aritzia, I have my eyes on a skirt and top there!

  16. I’d like to say I’d treat myself if I won but I know I’d spend it all on my little guy. He needs some basics from H&M and a few books!

  17. So many pretty things at guildfird right now.

  18. I’ll be spending it with my fav cousin when I come for New Years!!!!!!!!

  25. I would use it for Christmas gifts for my niece and nephew.

  26. Sunshine H says:

    I would love to get some new boots for the winter, but let’s be honest, I would likely end up buying some clothes or toys for DD. She is really interested in My Little Pony these days, so that’s where I would start.

  27. Nice finds! I could easily spend this at Guildford, such a great mall.

  28. I’d buy some workout gear for the new year!

  1. […] did very well. After our shopping, we took a break near Starbucks with one of my favorite bloggers, Little Miss Mama, who was also doing her Black Friday Shopping.ย Of course we had to stop and take a selfie. […]
