Happy Black Friday! The Story & The Tricks

November 27, 2015

Happy BLACK Friday everyone! That doesn’t sound very enticing, but in fact it very much is. You might be familiar with the yearly black Friday, which is slowly but surely a becoming an established event in Europe. It is THE day in the year that all the shops give crazy discounts and all the shop addicts can live their dreams… sounds pretty good to me!

The Story   

I was wondering though… how did this tradition come into existence? Let’s check out some of the facts: Ever since the start of the modern Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1924, the Friday after Thanksgiving has been known as the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. The term ‘Black Friday’ was created in the 1960’s because “Black” refers to the shops moving from ‘red’ to ‘black’ numbers. You see, back when accounting records were kept by hand, red ink indicated a loss, and black ink a profit! Look at that, we learned something new today!

The Tricks

However, now it’s time to get to the juicy part: where should I go shopping?! If you don’t have time to go into the city center, it’s a great option to do your shopping online. Let’s check out some cool webshops with fantastic discounts to inaugurate the Holiday Season!


We all know and love Sephora, but sometimes it’s just too damn expensive… not today though! Sephora has some amazing Black Friday Discounts running, so you can buy the perfect Christmas present for someone (or yourself). Personally I love their Holiday Giftsets which vary between €10,- and €100,- so there is something for everyone!

After putting on your beautiful make-up it’s time to get dressed! Hunkemöller has a beautiful lingerie collection with designs for everyone. Neutral, cute, comfy (you will love their Cosy Collection!), sporty, sexy, and most definitely a special Christmas collection! Today and tomorrow the Hunkemöller will give a 25% extra discount on everything in their shop!

At the moment is one of the fastest growing webshops in the world! That must be for a reason you would say, and that’s definitely true! They have the kind of clothes which you always see the cool IT Girls wear and of which you wonder where the hell they got them. Even better: you can scroll trough their varied collection for hours and the prices are super affordable! Today the discounts are up to 50%!

For some reason Fashion Pills decided to go for a Black Wednesday this year! Their 60% Off Discounts on Black clothes has been running for three days already! I love this online shop because they have unique clothes which they get from a mix between uprising and established brands. Very stylish, very inspiring, very #musthave!

Scandinavian webshop made a HUGE impact with their Christmas Campaign: featuring worldwide famous fashionblogger Kenza Zouiten covering “Let it Snow” (Kenza claims not to be a singer, but she is killing it!). This webshop represents many big brands, as well as several Scandinavian brands which we have to get to know! The Scandinavian Style has been dominating the fashion and interior trends for a while already, this is the place to keep up with them!
