Kat’s Black Friday Wishlist: Clean Beauty & The Best Leggings, Ever


I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away and holiday prep is in full swing. Last night, we put up all of our Christmas decorations. Let me tell you…it’s a little bit extra. But who doesn’t love all the “extra” when it comes to the holidays?!

Over the years, I’ve found some pretty amazing deals during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale period. My favorite pair of Frye boots were a Cyber Monday steal, and I’ve scored plenty of workout clothes and kitchen goodies over the years, too.

But my absolute favorite to buy on sale are clean makeup products! Cyber Week is one of the few times of year when organic and clean beauty companies hop on the sale bandwagon.

I’m hoping to see any (or all) of this go on sale this year…

(Psst…for a peek at our other wishlists and keep an eye on our upcoming posts, head over to Black Friday/Cyber Monday central here.)

Clean Beauty, Kitchen & The Best Leggings Ever: Kat’s Black Friday Shopping Wishlist

We're hoping for some pretty amazing deals during the Black Friday & Cyber Monday sale period: clean beauty, kitchen gear & the best leggings ever.

1 // Reversible Rain Parka with Faux Fur – Winter in CO can be pretty unpredictable. I’ve had the same red raincoat since I was a freshman in college, so (needless to say) it’s time for an upgrade. I love everything about this jacket. Great details, and I love the length!

2 // Vince Camuto High Rise Leggings – Vince Camuto makes the BEST leggings ever. I’ve owned the same three pairs for almost four years now. They still look brand new. The material is more substantial than your typical leggings, and you can even get away with these for work. They have a thicker waistband, so they just hold everything in perfectly. Since these are such a huge staple in my daily workwear, I’m hoping these go on sale so I can refresh my collection and donate a pair or two.

3 // Gucci Soho Disco Bag – I know this likely won’t go on sale at all, but a girl can dream, right? I love small bags, and this is on my wishlist from Santa. If it doesn’t end up on sale, I’ll check out The RealReal for one that’s pre-owned. Find it at Neiman Marcus & Saks.

4 // Athleta Salutation Stash Pocket Tight In Powervita Legging– I am in desperate need of some new black workout leggings, and I’ve always been a fan of Athleta’s. I like a good compression feel, and these hold you in so well while also allowing you to stretch and move with ease. These come in several colors, but I prefer classic black for working out.

5 // Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer – My salon in Colombus, OH is the best, and they only use this Dyson hairdryer. It’s super quiet, and all the attachments are magnetic, (think: crazy satisfying clicking sound when you swap them in place). In my experience, these dryers are great for curly hair because they diffuse like a dream! Find it at Ulta, Amazon, Sephora, Bed Bath & Beyond.

6 // Vince Camuto Convertible Collar Stretch Crepe Blazer – Because I already love Vince Camuto’s leggings so much, I want to try this blazer for work and with jeans. The collar is unique and some stretch in the fabric is always a must for me.

7 // Frye Alta Hiker Boot – I have been thinking about getting another pair of Frye boots, but I also really need a pair of hiking boots. When I found these, I was sold. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that these beauties go on sale during Cyber Week so that I can snag a pair! Find it at Zappos & Amazon.

8 // Ilia The Necessary Eyeshadow Palette – I’ve noticed that clean and organic makeup brands tend to go on sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, I’ve been eyeing (no pun intended) Ilia’s eyeshadow palettes. If you’re just getting started with clean beauty, Ilia is great! Find it at Sephora & Nordstrom

9 // Vitruvi Porcelain Essential Oil Diffuser – I have a portable essential oil diffuser that I take with me when I travel, but when I moved, I left my old one behind. It was a cheapie from Target and I’ve been looking to upgrade! The Vitruvi has a sleek design and is such a pretty addition to any room. I really hope this goes on sale so that I can snag this one for myself. Find it at Amazon, Anthropologie & Sephora.

10 // Stasher Bags – You all know I am a VSCO girl at heart, so I’m all about using products that help to reduce my carbon footprint. Stasher bags are AMAZING! I’ve had mine for about a year now, and they’ve held up great. I have the snack bags and the sandwich-sized bags. Stasher bags don’t hold any odor, and they are also dishwasher safe. Move over Ziploc, there’s a new bag in town! Find it at Anthropologie, The Container Store & Target

11 // Green Pan Levels Nonstick 11 Piece Set – GreenPan makes the best nontoxic, eco-friendly, nonstick ceramic cookware I’ve ever found. Unlike traditional cookware that contains chemicals and pollutants, GreenPan makes its products without PFAS, PFOA, lead or cadmium. In addition to being better for the environment, they’re dishwasher safe! I currently have two of their pans, but I really would love to own an entire set! Find them at Amazon, Nordstrom, Crate & Barrel.

12 // Le Creuset Dutch Oven – My college roommate had a Le Creuset Dutch oven that we would use to make stews, risotto, and we even made our Friendsgiving turkey in it! Ever since we graduated, I’ve always wanted one, but have never pulled the trigger (because it’s such an investment), but it’s my dream to own one of these incredibly crafted pieces one day! Find it at William & Sonoma, Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond.

Well, that’s all from me! I am so looking forward to the holidays, but I might be even more excited about the food coma that is sure to ensue after Thanksgiving dinner.

Happy holidays and happy shopping!




  1. Le Creuset outlets have “seconds” that are indistinguishable from the items in stores, and always considerably less than even store sale prices. And the outlets have sales, too! Hoping there’s one near you!

  2. I love everything you have. You definitely need the Vitruvi Diffuser. I have two one upstairs and one downstairs. Always working. You should check out Sara’ s new book.

  3. I was going to make the same exact comment. Le Creuset Outlets are the best. I have several pieces (including a dutch oven) that I got there for a steal- at least compared to regular retail prices.
