happy thanksgiving + black friday sales 2021- M Loves M @marmar

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I hope you had a wonderful day with loved ones eating some delicious food! We ended up having a simple Thanksgiving with just the four of us but it was still very special. This is my second Thanksgiving making this herby mushroom croissant stuffing and it’s the best ever! I also made this chocolate-caramel macadamia nut tart that we always love! We also tried a few new recipes: this easy mashed potato recipe with a secret ingredient, and these roasted Brussels sprouts and broccoli. Matthew isn’t a huge brussels sprouts fan and surprisingly enough, he loved them!

Today we’ve been keeping it pretty low-key by cleaning and finishing some Christmas decorating! We started a little earlier than normal this year but there are a few things I’m hoping to do, like hang garland on our stairs. In past years, prepping for Black Friday posts has been incredibly overwhelming and time-consuming, so this year I just wanted to share a few of the sales I’m shopping + things I have and love that are on sale. This list isn’t going to be exhaustive but hopefully it will allow you to make thoughtful purchases on things you need or want. I’m trying to shop small for all our families this year but let me know if there are any gift guides you’re interested in.



This coffee maker has been on my list for almost a year now so I finally got it since it’s on sale. I miss having a cup of drip coffee in the mornings and this one is supposed to brew a really excellent cup. It has a special certification ensuring that it’s a top-rated brew.

A bunch of button-ups and shirts for Augustine since they’re on such a great sale. This sale is one I shop every year because I get the kids spring wardrobes taken care of!

Christmas pajamas for next year! I want to take advantage of the sale and then I have them at the beginning of the next holiday season. This is the style we’ve been buying since Augustine was 3 months old! By the way, something we started this year was wrapping the pajamas up and putting them on the kids’ beds to find after Thanksgiving dinner. Going to bed in Christmas pajamas last night made me feel happy that the Christmas season is officially here!

J.Crew’s sale is so good this year! 40% off everything and 60% off sale items. Here are some of the best-sellers and I can vouch for several of them, like this super-soft sweater {would make a great gift!}.

New denim! This pair is such a good style. Also tempted by these cute flats!

The most gorgeous presets from Jess Kettle are on sale and I’m not joking when I say I’ve had them on my list since last year when I missed out on the sale. Excited to share some before/afters with you!

Some Items I have on Sale

My everyday bag is currently 30% off! Wears so well and holds a lot!

Love this pair of jeans that’s 30% off!

30% off any hat from my favorite milliner, or hat maker. The Adriana style is one I wear all fall! The Alara is another wool style that I think it gorgeous. I was hoping to get the Simone but it sold out before I could get it.

15% off on the shampoo and conditioner I get for the kids. Plus the Tubby Todd bath bombs which are their favorite thing and a perfect stocking stuffer!

The liquid collagen I’ve been using is on sale in some wellness bundles! There’s also a free gift with purchase and $10 off your cart. I’ve loved the liquid collagen called Liquid BioCell Life + Trim. Liquid collagen is more absorbable and there are so many studies about how effective this one is!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
