Things I Am Currently Obsessed With: Cyber Monday Edition

Hi chickadees!

It feels like I haven't done one of these posts in forever, probably because I have been making so many purchases in the last few months. I'm actually trying to cut back on my impulse purchases which is why I'm devoting this "Things I Am Currently Obsessed With" post to what I would be purchasing this Cyber Monday if I just had a ridiculous amount of disposable income. Feel free to take advantage of some of these deals for yourself. As always, I have no sponsors. I'm just presenting these shopping ideas for you and if you do want to support this site, then please consider clicking one of the links on my page and doing your shopping through my affiliate links. It won't cost you any more but I'll get a tiny percentage on whatever purchase you make.

Dannijo is currently offering a 20% promotion on their site. As far as I know there are no exclusions but test out the coupon code on the items you're interested in to be sure. All you need to do is type in the coupon code "SURPRISE20." What would I purchase? The Dahlia necklace. Not only does it remind me a little of the Aurelie necklace but it is one of the more wearable statement necklaces that Dannijo is currently selling. The necklace is currently selling for $695 but with the discount code of 20% off, you knock a full $139 off the price leaving you with $556. Now that still isn't cheap for a Swarovski crystal necklace which is why I'm including it in this post but if you can afford it, the Dahlia necklace would be my pick from Dannijo this Cyber Monday.

Henri Bendel has been offering promo codes since Thanksgiving. Their Cyber Monday code is "CYBER13" which depending how much you spend and which items you purchase could mean discounts from 25% to 40% off. With the code CYBER13 you will also get free shipping and receive a $20 splurge card which you can use at any point after you've received it before the expiration date. I have no information on how long you'll have to spend the $20 splurge card. Now, if you've been following this site, you know what my pick will be. Of course, I'd recommend getting the Henri Bendel Cafe Girl Scarf which is now back in stock in black and white and color. The scarf is regularly priced at $125 but with the 30% discount you receive a discount of $37.50 making the final total (without tax) $87.50 with an additional $20 splurge card to spend as you see fit at Henri Bendel. If the scarf is still too much of a splurge, Henri Bendel also carries a Cafe Girl Mug for $25 with the same design featured on the scarf.
It is not part of their Cyber Monday promotion as the Cyber Monday discount does not apply to items that are already on sale but I did want to mention that is currently offering Deborah Lippmann polishes at half price. Now you will not find the entire line of Deborah Lippmann polishes but there are quite a few glitter favorites like Mermaid's Dream and Glitter in the Air as well as a variety of creme and shimmer shades. I picked up a few of them myself as I only own Across the Universe and I thought it might be nice to add a few Deborah Lippmann shades to my collection while they're so cheap. Now, even half price these polishes cost $8.50-$10 which is more than your standard Essie or OPI polish (especially if you've got some kind of sneaky discount or you're taking advantage of a drugstore rewards program) but given the original price of these polishes it's worth taking a look. 

I'm generally against buying clothes online but I love the look of this suede skirt from H&M. Everything sitewide is 40% off with the code 7376. 

Maggy London is also offering 40% sitewide at No promo code is necessary. If you happen to be a size 2 or 6, I would get this Sarong Skirt Satin Dress for $40. If you happen to be a size 10, I like this Laser Cut Faux Leather Dress for $138. Unfortunately, the site does not allow you to apply the discount unless you already start the checkout process (which I'm not about to do) so I cannot verify that the discount gets applied. 

Kate Spade is offering 30% off sitewide with the promo code CYBER30. Now I know that this isn't that impressive when the Kate Spade site seems to be having 75% off sales every week. The emails drive me crazy. But given that this is a sitewide sale it means that you have more sizing options in terms of shoes and apparel and just a greater variety of items to choose from in general. I like this Skinny Mini Bow Bangle available in gold, silver, and rose gold. There are a lot of bow bangles out there but this one seems pretty unique. Use the promo code CYBER30 to reduce this bangle from $78 to $54.60 with free shipping to all 50 states. If the bangle is not your cup of tea there are plenty of other items to choose from as Kate Spade carries handbags, jewelry, apparel, phone cases, etc. 
I am so tempted to pick up the Urban Decay Smoked palette for the short time that it's $39 with a travel-size duo of the Urban Decay primer potion in Original and Greed but I won't because I already have the Dangerous palette and given how often I've used the last Urban Decay palette I bought it would just be a waste of money. But if you don't own the Dangerous palette or the Smoked palette yet and you've been wanting it, this is a great excuse to pick it up for yourself or as a Christmas present.
