Back Again

Happy Monday friends! Sorry for my break the past couple of weeks! If you follow me on Instagram (@eloquently_emily) I popped on to explain my absence and just do a bit of catch up. Basically I've been traveling so much over the past few weeks and on top of that have been sick and working a ton! Things have settled down a bit and I am finally feeling better and ready to jump back into posting and getting back to feeling like me. 

Being that it's Cyber Monday and there have been some serious sales over the past week, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites on sale and things I have been shopping for. I was blown away last week when almost all the Black friday sales started on Wednesday and continued into the weekend! Seriously a great time to stock up on some of your favorites or if your like me, get all your Christmas shopping done with the few clicks of your mouse. 

Here's a bit of what I have been shopping...


These are a steal for just $127 and something that would be super cute with leggings, an over-sized sweater or with a fun skirt and tights. 

A basic blouse that can be tucked in with jeans or worn long with leggings. 

This sweater has amazing reviews and could easily be thrown on as pictured above to run errands or paired over the above tunic for a more dressier look. It does run large so I would suggest sizing down one size. 

Everything at Anthro is currently 20% off and free shipping for orders over $100.

These are normally close to $100 and you can get them for just $78 now. Unfortunately Anthro doesn't have the petite version I would need but if your taller these are amazing and have great reviews. 

I love the cranberry color of the tee and love that it's longer and could be worn with leggings or jeans. 

Also a great time to stock up on your favorite candles or give them as gifts. This scent has been a long favorite of mine. 

J. Crew Factory / J. Crew
Both J.Crew and J.Crew Factory are having amazing sales right now with up to 50% off everything. 

I am obsessed with the belt detail of this top and think it would be perfect now with navy pixie pants or when it warms up with white jeans. 

I love this color combo and it's currently less that $25. 

Perfect gift for friends or family and they have amazing reviews. 

I think that about does it for my favorites but there are so many other amazing deals, be sure to check out some of your favorite sites to see what they are offering! Hope everyone has a great start to the week & happy shopping!

Yours truly,

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday friends! It feels like forever since I have checked in and actually posted so I figured I would take advantage of my sick day and get a blog post up. I can't believe it's already November and can't get over how crazy the past few weeks have been! From weddings, to weekends away, and getting to get some time at home with my family I feel like I have been nonstop! This past weekend was particularly special because one of my best friends got married, a couple I have known for 10 years now! Here's how the weekend looked...

Friday I was able to get out of work a bit early and headed to get a spray tam because lawd it's been awhile since this skin has seen any sun. If you are in the Raleigh area, I tried out Jill's Beach for the first time and was really pleased with not only the tan but the service and how helpful they were.
After my tan I headed to get a fresh gel manicure and went with OPI Big Apple Red. 

Next was home to shower and get ready for some of our friends that were coming in town and staying with us. It was so nice to have some of my friends back in town that I hadn't seen in months and even more fun to spend time getting ready with each other like we did in college. 

For dinner we made reservations at Humble Pie and it could not have been been more amazing. We each shared about 3 rounds of different small plates and appetizers, as well as 2 bottles of wine and had the best time catching up and enjoying the yummy good. It's not the best photo but we were fortunate enough to snag a spot outside under the lights and thankfully the weather cooperated and it stayed nice and warm. 

Next we headed just up the road to Whiskey Kitchen to have one more glass of wine before calling it a night. 
Whiskey Kitchen is another favorite of mine, I love the decor and ambiance and they make a mean cocktail. 

Saturday we slept in a bit and then headed downtown to meet some friends for brunch at Raleigh Times. Another Raleigh favorite that you can't really go wrong with. The wedding was at the Knitting Mill right at the edge of downtown and everything was absolutely beautiful from the bride to the decorations. 

I wish I had details for my outfit but unfortunately the dress is super old as are the shoes. 

Sunday was spent in recovery mode and seeing of all our friends that come in town before finishing the night with watching football and partaking in some good ol cheeseburgers for dinner. 

Unfortunately today I did feel a bit under the weather and decided to take the day to rest but I am hoping to get a few more posts up this week!

Yours truly, 
Emily Ann
