UPDATED! Happy Thanksgiving! 2012 Codes and Being Thankful

 (I hope this guy's flat screen tv brings him soup when he's sick. I think the shopping has gone too far, people.)

I'm compiling a list of stuff you should know about, now that Black Friday ate Turkey Thursday and you are compelled by the power of television to shop hard from Social Wednesday into whatever Tuesday is now called. Many stores are rushing their employees dinners and opening tonight, which I think might be a little crazy...but maybe that is just me.

While you are out hitting the stores for their best deals (am I the only one to notice that Macy's has the lowest prices of the year, every other weekend? Is that legal?), don't forget to hit your local businesses for the perfect gift. I'm a huge fan of spa and hair salon gift cards, as well as local artisan gifts that can be found in your own neighborhood.

Speaking of small businesses where you could be shopping, if you want to pick up the best HD Powder ever (I'm not even kidding at all), visit Purely Cosmetics and save 20% from 11/23-11/26 using code BF2012 at checkout.

If you need a cool gift for the special hipster in your life, check out this site. If you feel like buying Loxy a gift and have $80 to spend, this is his kind of hunting trophy. See? Cool stuff for guys you don't know how to shop for. You're welcome.

Check out these shaving products from Fig and save big! Save 20% on every purchase at Project FIG through November 30th.  Use checkout code NOV20.

Votre Vu is offering free shipping on ever purchase with a free Eiffel Tower mascara with every order over $100.

Sue Devitt Beauty  is offering free shipping until the holidays and 20% off of all orders until 12/3. No checkout code needed.

Naturopathica has shopping deals throughout the season. Get started on Friday with one of these offers: 30% Off 11/22-11/28/2012 with code BF12 or 25% Off plus Free Shipping 11/22-11/28/2012 with code BF25.

After those tri-toned shadows were released last week, I'm super excited about this.

Sales end when they end, so shop fast!

And in all that shopping, don't let the lessons from earlier in the day flee from your mind. Me? I'm thankful for Loxy, our animals, my mom, my sisters, my niece, my Worm and my friends and family (internet, real, imagined or from high school). I'm thankful to have a phenomenal group of friends who share my love of beauty, readers who read my blather and talk back, a day job that encourages me to try new things, a house that doesn't leak, a car with heat and my beautiful television. While it seems simple and maybe a little trite to hope for world peace, we could stand to calm down, gain some perspective and think about others first. So be nice, do nice things for others and celebrate the season!
