Happy Monday.  I am really enjoying these Fall weekends home before the crazy holidays set in!  This weekend was spent spending lots of time with Mark without any time tables.  It was a wonderful feeling!  Linking up with B.

Bloomingdales Friends and Family sale

Saturday we were up and headed to St. Pete beach.  Our favorite restaurant Nori Thai every year has Monks come and bless their restaurant.  They have a ceremony where they bless string and then give a piece to all the patrons.  It gives you good luck and blessings throughout the year.  Mark and I have been going together for the past three years and I’ll say it has worked!  I was very eager to get my string again.  I also love that we both wear them together.Nori ThaiNori Thai St.Pete Beachnori thai monksnori thai sushi

We followed that by watching tons of football.  The entire weekend.  With the Gators win we will be heading to Atlanta!  Glad we booked early.  Amongst the football watching, I got work done and eat tons of good food.  Which meant I had to get barre classes in.  I spent the remaining late part of the weekend scoping all the fab Fall sales for you!  The Nordstrom Fall clearance sale is still going on!  They have some major pieces 40% off like this Tory Burch bag and these DL1961 leggings.

I put this on my Meet @ the Barre Facebook page over the weekend and have never seen a post so engaged.  Did y’all know that Costco has Hunter boots online right now for half the price?  I’ve also heard that Nordstrom will price match to them if you call.  What color would you get them in?  I have the green color and wear them on major repeat.  Hunter boots Costco

Also, Bloomingdale’s Friends and Family Sale is live with the code HOLIDAY!  Bloomie’s is one of my favorite high end department stores when it comes to sales.  Here are a few pieces on my radar.  My favorite Rebecca Minkoff mini mac which is in the top picture is included in it!  How perfect is this lace dress for the holidays.  You have to pick up the AG leggings!  They are part of the sale.  I have been wearing mine of major repeat.  Sizes are guaranteed to run out quickly. I have this grey pair in my shopping cart. These DL1961 skinnies are the real deal.  I just scooped up another pair.  Insanely soft.  Aren’t these beauties a total dupe for the Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots?  These are the black booties I’ve worn in every post lately and they are included!

I plan throughout the holiday months to feature tons of shopping guides for you!  What things do you guys like seeing?  Under $50 shopping guides?  Sephora holiday gift sets?  I have tons of ideas for you.  Make sure you check my Trending Sales tab at the top of the page for updated sales throughout the next two months!  Oh and btw has anyone tried the plenti Pumpkin Pie gelato yet?  Heaven on earth.  I insist you get it!  I hope everyone had a fab weekend!!  xoxoxo

    I have a pair of Hunter Boots in China I got for $20. But it’s important to know they’re fake. Everything here is fake! haha

    That sushi boat…I’m wishing I was eating it right now!! It seemed like every store was having a sale this weekend…the best thing about the holiday season – you can sneak gifts for yourself too! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    You already know that I both thank you and curse you for telling me about these sales lol. But I’m glad to have gotten my stuff on discount at least! :) Love that first photo–all professional and whatnot! So glad you had a good weekend–hope your year is full of good blessings :)

    Sometimes weekends at home with no major plans are the absolute best! That’s exactly what we did this weekend too. That sushi…. i dieeee

  6. November 9, 2015 / 8:03 AM

    I would literally never expect Costco to have Hunter boots lol what in the world!! And my mom and I totally used the price-match system at Nordstrom yesterday – so awesome!

  7. November 9, 2015 / 8:17 AM

    Good tip on the Nordies price match. I might have to bite the bullet now. I’ve been on the fence for a year and there’s ALWAYS a day when I need them and say, today!! So maybe that’s today! ;)

  8. November 9, 2015 / 8:26 AM

    HUNTER boots at Costco!!! I am heading there now! I have the black ones but dying to get the olive colored ones as well.

  9. November 9, 2015 / 8:29 AM

    I REALLY needed a pair of rain boots since El Nino is supposed to flood Texas all winter, but I ended up going with a pair of Sperry duck boots because the Hunters will be too hot here with all that rubber! The red are so cute though. We can take this convo offline, but what are you getting Mark for Christmas – any sales ideas for men? I’m not buying anything for the rest of the year but need to get Kirk something before I forget about him from being in baby-mode! ;)

  11. November 9, 2015 / 9:19 AM

    Gotta check those sales out for Christmas gifts! Dying for some hunter boots, they are definitely on my wish list! happy monday!

    That sushi looks delicious, glad that you two enjoyed yourselves there. Chris was looking at the Bloomingdales sale online last night haha. I’m wearing my AG leggings today too!! :-)And yes to that mini Mac..best bag ever. We sell those DL jeans at work but I haven’t tried the latest pair that we have. They are grey and I think that they’re skinnies. I’ll try them and let you know what I think. :-) Hope that you have a great day today too!! :-)

  13. November 9, 2015 / 10:20 AM

    Your sale guides are my jam! I would love an under $50. I am saving up for Christmas presents so after my Nordstrom haul coming this week it is strictly buying for others!

  14. November 9, 2015 / 10:34 AM

    How awesome about the Monks blessing every year!! That sushi plate looks so delicious too! Woohoo for the Bloomies sale, I’m resisting for now unless I come across something I just NEED, but trying to save stuff for my holiday wish list :)! I would love an under $50 gift guide, maybe even a gift guide for men because I never know what they need!

  15. November 9, 2015 / 10:53 AM

    Such great shopping deals lately! I heard that Nordstrom was matching Costco’s price for Hunter boots which sounds like an amazing deal! That’s so awesome that the restaurant has monks come in to bless the restaurant annually! Hope you continue to have good luck this year!

  16. November 9, 2015 / 10:57 AM

    We’ve been having some nasty, rainy weather in Charleston- I need those boots!

  17. November 9, 2015 / 10:59 AM

    50% off Hunter, that’s amazing. Too bad I already have a pair. I have a love hate relationship with them. They are great in the rain but they are not warm at all even with the liners in them. My feet froze in them last year. Sephora has the best gift sets, looking forward to your picks. Cannot wait for the VIB sale.

  18. November 9, 2015 / 12:06 PM

    That event at the Thai restaurant sounds so fun. I love that you guys have been going as a tradition. And anytime to eat sushi is a time for me! haha!!! Kristen was telling me least week that she grabbed Hunters at Costco for $80 and ever since then I have been thinking hmmmmm too bad I dont have a Costco membership! haha! They are too far away for me to shop at and make a membership worth my while. I had been debating on those boots for two years now. I just never know if I will get the use out of them. I love the red ones though! Those leather leggings are fabulous! I am hoping to get a pair for Christmas. I found some at Macy’s by Calvin Klein that I love!

    After this weekend’s games….I am hoping that Bama will be your opponent for the SEC Championship!!! Then maybe we can all meet up :)

  19. November 9, 2015 / 12:15 PM

    OOOH yum Sushi! I would love to see some under $50 gifts!

  20. November 9, 2015 / 12:15 PM

    I saw your post and immediately wanted to get to Costco. I had no idea.
    And may I just say I have sushi boat envy. that spread looks divine.

  21. November 9, 2015 / 12:54 PM

    yay costco! my bestie sent me a text when they went on sale ‘costco hunters GO ONLINE’ and i had them in my cart and checked out like 2 minutes later. they were almost all sold out the next day, in the colour / style i wanted anyway. KC said I couldn’t buy them sssshh i bought them anyway. i asked again a few days later and he said yes hahahaha.
    how cool is it that they bless the string? i did see that on your snap the other day, but my sound stuffs up sometimes so i don’t know if you mentioned it, but i just thought you were randomly snapping monks at a restaurant. haha.
    that sushi looks amazing! i had sushi on the weekend and it wasn’t amazing, unfortunately. womp womp.
    happy monday girl!

  22. November 9, 2015 / 1:16 PM

    That sushi. Oh. My. Word. What an awesome thing they do with the monks.
    And I got my Hunters at Costco a few years ago, in navy. Love them and such a good deal.

  23. November 9, 2015 / 2:01 PM

    What a cool restaurant. If we had something like that I would go too. A little good luck string can’t hurt. Thanks for posting about the sales. I am in need of over the knee boots desperately! Those high heels in your picture are killer!!

    I cannot believe that Costco has Hunter boots! They seriously rock sometimes. I love your tradition of going to the restaurant to get the blessed string – how special for the two of you. Happy Monday!

  25. November 9, 2015 / 4:03 PM

    That’s some legit sushi! Dang I wish we had Costco here and love your RM Mini Mac! Is it green? It looks green. Very pretty!

  26. November 9, 2015 / 4:24 PM

    These sales have me out of control – I did damage at Nordstrom’s sale and now Express – I need help! Your weekend sounds wonderful and that sushi looks so amazing!

  27. November 9, 2015 / 4:34 PM

    The sushi looks phenomenal! I love the little Buddhist ceremony they do ever year. Ive always wanted to visit a Buddhist temple.

    SO MANY SALES! I got a new pair of black Hunters thanks to Nordstrom’s price matching! It’s the BEST! I literally lose my mind when I see “price match” under one of the 1043248392 things I want!

  30. November 10, 2015 / 6:01 AM

    Sad I missed you in FL this weekend, but looks like you had a good one! Thanks for the sale tips!

  31. November 10, 2015 / 7:44 AM

    What a cool thing that the monks bless the restaurant and give patrons string. Is it long enough to wear around your wrist?
    I am in need of a new pair of Hunter boots. Thank you for the scoop. We do not have a Costco but I think there is a new one nearby in Mobile.

  33. November 10, 2015 / 10:53 AM

    So cool that Nordstrom will price match Costco!!! Just another reason why they are so amazing :) :)

  34. November 10, 2015 / 11:30 AM

    Oh that is so cool about the monks! And that sushi… Yum! Love all these boots!

  35. November 11, 2015 / 6:05 PM

    I love my Hunter boots in green! But I’m kinda lusting after a red pair! I love that cardigan in the last picture. Also, I love when you go to that restaurant with the Monks. So cool! I’m taking notes of where I should eat when I’m down in February! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
