Black Friday and Cyber Monday Wishlist

Whose ready for some shopping? More like self shopping? While this is normally the time that we start buying gifts for others, it is normally the time that I buy gifts for myself. I like to wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to take a look at things that I have been wanting to see if by any chance they are on sale and then I go for it!

I should preface this post by stating that I do not know if ANY of these items will be part of the holiday sales, but they are the items that I will be looking for. Having worked retail for many years, I do know that retailers tend to do a generous discount on a lot of tech gear so this year I will be focusing a BIG part on that. 

1. Absolutely Fabulous: Absolutely All Of It- Normally stores like to discount a lot of their season sets during this time. I have been lusting for this particular one for years. 

2. Make Up Geek Blush Palette and Foiled Eyeshadow Pallet- Cyber Monday is a perfect time to purchase makeup that is sold exclusively or primarily online.

3. Rayovac AA Batteries- Last year husband bought us a years supply of batteries during Black Friday. This year we may need to triple that order because my DSL camera uses batteries (why?) and filming drains them. And if you have littles, you probably need a box of these and AAA as well.

4. Apple iMac Desktop- Remember when having a laptop was all the rage and desktops were uncool? Screw that. I can't see. I need a giant screen (or two) in front of me. And this is a dream!

5. USB Memory Card Reader- I can't even tell you the amount of times I wished I had one of these little gadgets. Basically, life would be better if I owned one. 

6. Bose SoundTrue Headphones- Previous to recent YouTube channel creation, I would have said I personally didn't need these. But now whilst editing, I can see how they can help. 

7. Kate Spade Portable Charger- While filming this video, I realized how much this would come in handy. 

8. SanDisk Extreme Pro 32GB SD Card- Currently, I am only able to film 2 videos on my SD card before it gets full. This limits me to only being able to film once during the weekends which is when I devote most of my time to creating videos. This will allow me to be more productive.

9. Hallmark "Here Comes the Pumpkin King" Keepsake Ornament- In case I haven't made my love for all things Jack Skelington, this ornament would make a great addition to our tree. 

What will you be going after this year? And remember, shopping is cardio. Yes, even online. You worked that index finger to death clicking away! Go ahead and eat that pizza. You deserve it!
