I hope that you all are having a fantastic Thanksgiving. I am, unfortunately, in isolation with COVID-19. This is my 8th day of symptoms, which have included exhaustion, severe body aches, loss of taste and smell, non-stop fevers to nearly 104 degrees, and difficulty breathing. Yesterday was by far the worst day, so I’m incredibly grateful this Thanksgiving that I am feeling quite a bit improved from that.
Since I’m actually able to sit upright and get on my computer today, I’m going to share my favorite Black Friday deals. I usually put together a much more comprehensive list, but I’m prioritizing for this year.

Big Fig Mattress: We’ve had our Big Fig Mattress for 2 years now and it is still one of my favorite things in my house. I occasionally get emails of “so, do you STILL like your Big Fig?” YES YES YES. A mattress designed for plus size people has been a game changer for both Steve and I. If God forbid anything happened to my house, a Big Fig would be my first replacement item. It’s ruined hotel mattresses for me! (My original Big Fig Mattress review here.)
They currently have $300 off for Black Friday, which is the biggest discount they offer. Use code AUTHEMMIE at checkout.

ENELL Sports Bras: I’ve waxed poetic about ENELL Sports bras being absolute game changers for me as someone who is large chested. Their SPORT bra is a hold-em-down-no-matter-what, and take-no-prisoners maximum impact bra that almost makes me forget I have boobs. I’ve been living in their LITE bra for wearing around the house, and also for riding the Peloton as it’s a lower impact activity. If you prefer a racerback style, they have that as well. No wires and easy front-closure on all of them.
For Black Friday, they have their best sale of the year: 30% off plus free shipping within the US. Use code EMMIE30 at checkout.
ELOQUII: 50% Off Everything, $25 Festive Finds & $39 & Under Seasonal Steals, plus Free Shipping on All Orders $50+ with code: BLACKFRIDAY. I personally am obsessing over their loungewear options right now. Also, this favorite sweater dress is on sale for $39. This cardigan sweater dress that I have and wear both as a cardigan and a dress is also way over half off at $39. Finally, the faux leather moto jacket that I have in 3 colors is 60% off!
Old Navy: They are having 50% off everything, which is so, so good. This time of year, I stock up on athleisure, workout clothes, and cold weather items like puffer jackets. I snapped up these leggings – I think they’ll be great with the Peloton. And if there’s ever a year to stock up on sweatpants and sweatshirts, it’s 2020.
Anthropologie: 30% off everything, including home. This is a huge deal for a place that doesn’t have sales frequently. They have great gifts for nearly anyone on your list. And if you’ve been eyeing the super popular gleaming primrose mirror, this is one of the few times I’ve ever seen it offered at a discount. (Discounts appear automatically in cart) Also, Capri Blue candles for everyone!!! I always stock up for hostess gifts. Even if no one is hosting this holiday, we’ll want gifts for when we can get together again. Or, think of how fun it’d be to mail some surprises to unsuspecting friends!?
Universal Standard: US rarely has sales, and when they do, they’re always structured a little differently but the savings can be really big if you like the offers. They’re currently offering outfit bundles up to 50% off. To my excitement (and my wallet’s disappointment), their outfit bundles are really great combos. I’ve ordered a lot of US this year in my pursuit of a more versatile, high-quality foundation wardrobe. I have my eye on this shirtdress and cardigan combo. I already own this lounge outfit, and it is worth every (discounted) penny! And you know my general disdain of pants, but these wide leg pants are one of my favorite pairs of pants ever, and if those plus a luxe cashmere sweater aren’t worth a look, I’m not sure what is.
There may be some more sales I’ll pop in here when I have some more energy, but for now, these are the ones I’m shopping first! Find a great deal? Let us know in the comments so we can check it out.
Hope you had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
