BAF Weekly IT List

BAF Weekly IT List from top right: dark purple holidays 2020 nail polish (review coming soon!) / fall 2020 nail polish (see review here) / flat iron (under $100!) / classic grey loafers (under $200) / pink scarf (under $100) / limited edition holiday fragrance /

The It list is here! This week we are still loving everything fall, but we are also starting to look ahead to the holiday season; and getting some shopping done early! This fabulous holiday nail polish will sell out fast, so if you like it, I suggest snapping it up now! Chanel’s fall IT nail polish is still going strong, and is a great color for moving into the holiday season if you want to stick with a more classic look on your nails.

Of course, who doesn’t love this fabulous flat iron priced under $100! I own it, and I absolutely adore it! It is gently on my hair, and does a great job straightening it without damaging it. Love!

These classic loafers are super comfortable, and they come in so many pretty color! Classic loafers are hot this year, so if you haven’t snapped up a pair yet, I recommend these. They are affordable and comfortable. Love that!

I am a huge fan of scarves in the fall and winter seasons. This light pink one is perfect for fitting into the emerging pastel trend, as well as offering both a holiday and winter vibe. It also happens to play well with fall’s current deep red trend. Plus, it would make a great gift for the holiday season. Love!

Looking for a holiday gifts yet? This limited edition fragrance by Lancome is divine. I just got a bottle and will doing a review for you soon. So stay tuned! it’s really pretty, and would make a great holiday gift!

Can you believe the holiday season is so close! It is always a good idea to start thinking about holiday shopping in October. It helps us to organize our list, and solidify our budget. While this is an annual prep routine, 2020 is little bit different.

This year, online holiday shopping is expected to explode. Since many people live in areas where things haven’t fully reopened, and people are still skeptical about going out in public to do shopping, online shopping is going to be the main way people shop for the holidays. Since so many people will shopping online, delivery companies may find themselves with an overload of packages to deliver. This is expected to result in slow delivery times; which could delay the arrival of your gifts to your doorstep.

Since so many people will be flooding online shopping, it is wise to shop early in order to ensure the gifts we buy arrive in time for the holidays! I made the mistake of shopping late last year and my son’s Christmas gift arrived two days after Christmas. I cannot even begin to tell you how devastating this was for us. This year, I am starting to shop now; and I highly recommend you start too!

To kick off holiday shopping for her, I have put together an early bird holiday gift guide with fabulous gifts for her. I hope you love it! I know I do! Hopefully people who have me on their list see this 🙂 hehehehe
