Happy Thanksgiving Week! I know we still have a few days, but I always start celebrating as soon as the week starts! That’s because I get super excited for Black Friday! It came so fast this year, I can’t believe the holidays are right around the corner. I get myself organized and make a list for everything I need/want to get on Thursday-Friday, and cyber Monday. So many stores already started their pre-black Friday sale! So, tomorrow’s post is going to be all about SALES, and stores you NEED to go to, things to look for, and the best deals! I know it can get tough, so I will help you out with this.

Some things I am looking for is or have made a list of so far… obviously, a list of all the gifts I want to get my friends + family! Fur vests, sweaters, caps + ponchos, booties + boots, denim distressed ripped boyfriend jeans, white pants, gray skinny pants, hunter green pants, professional tops for work, home decor, makeup (I just got my certification from Glam Lab! This I need to tell you more about as soon as I am done with my long list!), a cute robe…

let’s see what else I can add onto my list this week!

Today’s outfit is something I put together last second, before running to an event in Chicago, and I wanted to just be cozy. When I took this photo, it was raining really bad in Chicago and so, so cold! So, I decided on pink + flamingos to brighten up my day! I just love this scarf from Kate Spade–it’s such a fun scarf with the tassels! I thought the ruffle sleeves would be cute to pair with it. The whole outfit details are below!

I mentioned getting certified from Glam Lab Make-Up Studios! For the longest time, I have been wanting to be a make-up artist! I LOVE make-up, and enjoy doing others make-up, and just playing around! I wanted to turn this into something I do outside of my day-to-day job. Yesterday, I attended one of their classes and received my certification after completing the make-up look they had asked us to do. It was so fun, and I loved the hands-on experience. I will be starting a section (but separated from my blog) on my site for my make-up portfolio soon. If you’re reading this, and you’re in the Chicago, IL or Columbus, OH area (I travel to Columbus a lot!) , I need 60+ ladies to practice make-up on! Please leave me a comment below, or email me at amna@theamnaali.com if you’re interested! The only catch is, I need to take a photo of before/after (or only the completed look) and provide this in my portfolio. If you’re okay with this, and want too, please reach out to me! I’d love to do your make-up! I am also hosting a party in Chicago to do this.

Here’s my certification! (If you follow my Instagram, you already know!)
