PSA: Things We Love (and Bought for Ourselves) That Are Currently On Sale

Photo by Sara Ligorria-Tramp | From: Arlyn’s Bright & Happy Rental Living Room Makeover

Happy Friday, folks. If you didn’t see yesterday’s team holiday outfit party post, check it out because we’re STILL coming down from our holiday celebration high. And while you’re there, check out the last photo in the blog post because I swear I’ve never seen so much love and Christmas cheer in one picture. 

But I need to remind myself: you guys are here for SALES today, not here for me to talk about how great the holidays are for the 1,000th time (which is a lot considering this is only the fourth time we’ve done this post). So, I’m glad you’re here just in time to meet this week’s smoking hot deals: 


One of our favorite shoe brands, Nisolo is having a 15% off SITEWIDE sale when you buy from their ethical marketplace (use code GOODTIDINGS). Their 2-day shipping rate is also discounted (only $6.95). It all lasts through Sunday. 

The young, trendy store (you may have heard of before) Urban Outfitters, is having some really great “deals of the day” this entire month. Today’s super hot steal is 40% off dresses and rompers. Here is my personal favorite. Make sure to check back through the weekend/month for more savings.

I’m a bootie lover (I’m talking short BOOTS people, don’t be gross), so I’m a firm believer that everyone should probably have a black, white and red pair. If you’re into that concept, these booties are $41 off and they come in black, white, and red, so you can choose the color of your liking.

The oil diffuser Arlyn uses every day (and is in the photo above) is 40% off (use code YULELOVEIT). And we appreciate the clever name for that online code.

Jess’ “life-changing fancy” (she said it, not me) “PJ” shirt from the link-up is also 40% off right now with code YULELOVEIT. (Sorry there are only minimal sizes available). She also loves this very similar one. But everything at Madewell is 25% off and holiday favorites are 40% off. 

I’m a HUGE proponent for giving pajamas as gifts because it’s one of those things you don’t buy for yourself that often. These PJ shorts were originally $25 but now they’re only $9 AND THEY’RE SO CUTE. Pair this with a cute, comfy sleepy time T-shirt and you’ve got yourself the perfect gift. 

Emily’s favorite Spanx undies are on sale for 10% off. I know it’s not a  huge discount but when it comes to quality shapewear during the holiday season, we’ll take what we can get. Plus, these are perfect for a classic NYE little black dress situation. It’s coming up faster than you think, guys.

Emily’s everyday snakeskin boots are on sale for 40% off (yup, these are the ones she wore in the holiday post + many, many other posts). Emily would like you to know that she is bummed that she paid full price, but happy for you. 

Anthro is having a 30% off EVERYTHING sale –– this weekend only. GEEZ. For homewares, we love this trinket box, this throw and THIS cool totem

In the market for a new bed frame? Veronica just bought this one, which unfortunately for her went on sale for 55% off 2 days after she bought it. I’m sorry, V, but at least we get to share this $134 bed frame with all of you now.


Tommy: EHD alum, photographer and now jewelry designer, Tessa Neustadt just launched her brand new sustainable jewelry line YESTERDAY. Check it out and be literally one of the first ones to know and love this brand like we do. We are so proud of her and can’t wait to get our hands on it.

Winky Lux: The name might sound a little closer to a sex toy than a makeup brand, BUT I found this AMAZING lipstick which I wore in yesterday’s holiday look post (this is the last time I’ll talk about yesterday’s post – I promise). It’s completely clear – which really bamboozled the office ladies – because when you put it on, it changes the PH balance in your lip to bring out your spicy natural lip color. PRO TIP: If you have lips that are particularly prone to being chapped, hydrate before you put this bad boy on. 


That’s all for this week, we’ll see you back here next Friday for more deals and steals. Happy holidays, everybody. Xoxo, Mallory

I’m a longtime reader. Read the blog every day with my morning coffee. 🙂 I so appreciate all the incredibly hard work that goes into putting posts together and the genuine camaraderie of the team. Thank you! I feel compelled to mention that in the last few months, especially the last few weeks, this space is feeling incredibly consumer/spending focused. I understand it’s the holidays and there are a lot of sales etc., but It seems like the underlying message of almost every single post is about buying, buying, buying, with links to a million things. It’s become off-putting and overwhelming. I share this sentiment honestly as a loyal fan. Yes, I can scroll on by and skip posts but if I worked at EHD I would want to know if readers felt this way. I hope this is received as genuinely constructive feedback. Thank you again for the inspiration over the years. I’ll continue to check in and hope posts come into more balance in 2020. xox

Courtney, thanks for phrasing this so perfectly. As a long- long-time EHD fan, I feel the same way. All these spend-focused posts will definitely not stop me from coming back to the blog forever (and ever and ever), but it does feel like the balance is off lately.

Not unusual for the mix of posts on blogs like this one to shift during holiday season. What’s going on here is no different than about a half-dozen other blogs I follow that are posting daily gift guides and more.

Susannah…I think that only amplifies the overwhelm.

Does Emily Bowser no longer work there? She’s not in this email, not at the holiday party

Hi team EHD! I’ve commented before asking if it might be doable to keep the link routing consistent in posts (i.e., opening in a new tab vs. redirecting in the current window) and was assured that opening in a new tab is standard practice for you guys. I felt a little silly when I got that response—not to mention like I was maybe going bonkers! Anyway, worth saying that this post also has a bit of a grab bag in terms of link directing. Most seem to open in a new tab in my browser, but here the first Anthro link, Tommy link (plus Tessa’s, on that same line), and Winky Lux link all open within the same window. I’m no analytics expert, but I can say as a reader that when links open in the same window, eclipsing the blog that I’m on, I’m way less likely to route back and continue reading, which I suppose would impact my overall time spent on the blog, and likelihood of continued reading? Anyway, I know this is all petty stuff, and it’s really just as easy to command+open the links, but it would be nice to know whether I need to… Read more »

I love this comment because every time i click a link (anywhere on the internet) I drop down menu and “open in new tab” which is to say this isn’t a small user experience note. I usually open all the links in a new tab, finish reading the blog post and go look at the links in case…. it’s helpful to know how some of your users use the site. Thanks for bringing me so many links I wanna click! EHD forever <3
