Early Black Friday Sales That I’m Shopping

You’ve probably already noticed a lot of Black Friday Sales have been happening all month long. However, this is the big week when all the sales will finally be posted. I’ve put together a list of Black Friday Sales that are already live and ready to shop.



At the bottom of this post, I’ll have a list of all the sales I found that are already live. I’ve already shopped a few of the sales,  and I’ll show you my pics below. For this section, you can click on any of the photos to be taken to the website.


Nordstrom: Holiday deals are here, with new markdowns on top brands for men, women, and kids — plus luxe home goods — now through Nov. 29. Tory Burch wasn’t a part of the Nordstrom anniversary sale, but there’s a lot on the Black Friday sale.


Walmart: Walmart’s Black Friday Deals for Days event brings discounts across every category, from home to tech to toys to vacuums.

Macy’s: Shop at Macy’s and save on home decor, clothes, and gifts for the whole family. I found a ton of great-priced cashmere sweaters. Some are so affordable they will make perfect Christmas gifts.


Our Place: I love my pots and pans from Our Place, and I gave them away as Christmas gifts last year. They are having a fabulous sale; I think I’m going to grab a few small things that I don’t already have.


Kendra Scott: you know I love my Kendra Scott Jewelry, and there is a fantastic sale of 30% off. I took advantage and ordered the large cross necklace I’ve been waiting for to go on sale.


Loft: Early Black Friday access for Stylerewards members. General public access starts on Wednesday.




Dyson: I love Dyson products, but they are expensive. The Black Friday sale saves hundreds of dollars on some of these products.

Freshwater Pearl Company

The Freshwater Pearl Company is gifting a sterling silver and pearl pendant (to keep or gift to someone) with every purchase now through the weekend. The chain is not included, but you can grab one here if you don’t already own one. Plus, you will get free shipping and use the code TANIA15 for a 15% discount as well!!!

The Freshwater Pearl Company has gorgeous, high-quality jewelry. I did a post on how FRESHWATER PEARLS ARE TIMELESS, CLASSIC, AND MODERN ALL AT THE SAME TIME in October. Y’all loved the jewelry so much, and you kept Brian busy sending out packages all weekend. I’ll show you some of the reader favorites below; you check out more items in the post above.

This is a brand new necklace to The Freshwater Pearl Company. It just went live today, so I’m not sure the link is live yet. But if you search for Tania, it should come up. YEP! It is named after ME!!!

I love the Tania necklace since it is casual and dressy at the same time. Plus, you can choose to wear it long as I have it here, so double it for a shorter look. I love versatile jewelry! These are coin pearls, so they are flat instead of round, but they still have a gorgeous sheen. I think there is a matching bracelet that is going live today, too, so guess who needs to buy that???

Nicole – Rosary Chain and Freshwater Pearl Charm Necklace Everyone LOVED the Nicole Necklace!!! So many of you bought this necklace that it sold out in a couple of hours! He promises that he has re-stocked, but don’t wait too long just in case. The sparkle and shine of the beads and the iridescent sheen of the pearls show you the craftsmanship of this jewelry.

My two favorite items are the Pearl Lariat Necklace and the Baroque Pearl Charm Bracelet! These should be on your Christmas wish list for yourself! Send this post to your husband and tell him Tania made you do it. Lol!

The Nile bracelet is so pretty. When I wear this bracelet, it always gets compliments. The pearls are 14-15mm, and the bracelet has a removable pendant that you can hang on a necklace. I love the baroque shape of these earrings. They look fabulous with a dress or jeans; that is the beauty of pearls!!! If you prefer a more traditional form, then you might like the Amaya Stud Earrings.

City Beauty


Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is showing her new City Beauty Skincare Haul for November20

I have this one friend who has raved about City Lips for years. When I caught up with her in Nashville, she was once again raving about City Lips. When I went online to look up the products, here is what I found out about City Lips.

“City Lips is a plumping Lip Gloss that gives you both an immediate and long-term solution for your lips. With innovative ingredients that help restore healthy lips, it delivers deep hydration for instant plumping, long-lasting comfort, and smooths out lip lines & wrinkles.”

I’ve tried plumping lip products before but what interested me was that this one was a long-term solution, not just an immediate result that would vanish. One of the sides of my lips is thinner than the other, so I thought this would be fun to see if I could tell the difference using this product. I’ve never been a fan of glossy lip products because they are gooey, so I was fully expecting to feel the same about this one. I decided to give it a chance, though, and I’m so glad that I did. I’ve found that I like the clear City Lips Plumping Gloss more at night, just because I wake up in the morning and my lips still feel moist. Even though that side effect is nice, I was most interested in seeing the plumping of the lips.

I’ve been using it morning and night, and I am now almost as obsessed as my friend. I’m now sure that I see a difference. The smaller side of my lips now looks almost identical to the other one. Because I like matte lipstick more than gloss, I ordered the City Lips Matte in Pink Taupe and Rosy Mauve. The color that I am wearing here is Rosy Mauve, and it might be my favorite, but there are more shades available.

The Cyber Monday Sale – Buy One, Get One FREE for Beyond Mascara and City Lips with code TANIA50 – is from Wednesday until next Monday. Now is the perfect time to stock up on City Lips or give them as gifts. I’ve not used the Beyond Mascara yet, so I’ll be grabbing that for myself. Its rich black pigment adds instant impact and dimension to the eyes with volume, length, and fullness.

Collagen For Her


Marine Blend Collagen For Her

Marine Collagen Beauty Blend

Almost every morning, I start out the day with a cup of hot tea. It is my little wake-me-up to get my day started. Adding a small scoop of Collagen For Her Marine Collagen to my tea is easy to do. I put a scoop of Collagen into my hot tea, and BAM! This powder instantly dissolves in hot liquids, so no floating chunks and no globs at the bottom of your cup. Collagen For Her is 100% flavorless and tasteless, and I liked that it didn’t have any weird smells, tastes, or texture, and I could add it to my morning tea.

The Marine Collagen Beauty Blend is my choice, although the other products work great. It’s made from hydrolyzed fish collagen and has added Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, and Biotin. It doesn’t have a fishy taste at all, but you get all of the added benefits. According to the website, one scoop contains 5g of hydrolyzed marine collagen peptides. Bonus: this blend is pescatarian-friendly! This beauty blend contains 100% of your daily value of Vitamin C, biotin, and 100mg of hyaluronic acid! I know a little about skincare, and vitamin C and hyaluronic acid are two fantastic ingredients for your skin. It is also Paleo & Keto Friendly; Non-GMO, Sugar-Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, and Soy Free.

I like that Collagen For Her is also a woman-owned business; I figured they had a better insight into what a woman might need. Plus, they also give back, and I like doing business with companies that care. Right now, Collagen For Her is having a Black Friday Special – 20% off all products using code BLACKFRIDAY20 plus a free bottle of our Marine Collagen Beauty Gummies with any purchase over $70. Plus, you can also purchase the Marine Collagen Beauty Blend at 20% off from Amazon all this week as well.
