Kohl’s holiday shopping + a giveaway

*I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Kohl’s. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating

Raise your hand if the only Black Friday shopping you did was from your phone while curled up in bed.

My hand is in the air.

I’m intimidated by real Black Friday shoppers. You know the ones. The people who I see days before, fully camped out in front of stores with the whole store mapped out and a game plan ready. If I ever tried, I’m sure I’d be the one shown on the evening news getting trampled by the crowd.

No thank you.

It’s all cyber shopping for me. With deals that can be just as good online as in store, I see no reason to do otherwise.

Kohl’s was one of my e-shopping stops. It always is. One thing I particularly love about online shopping at is how when you’re navigating the site there’s a “more like this” link under every item that takes you to similar items. It makes shopping and finding exactly what you’re looking for incredibly easy. With nearly everything on sale, the ability to add on coupon codes for further discounts, $10 (+ an extra $5 until November 30th) Kohl’s cash back for every $50 spent and free shipping, I saved some serious cash and the mini queen’s main Christmas gift has just been purchased!

The items from the Frozen line at Kohl’s are hot, must have items for Christmas this year and they are selling fast. From clothes to toys and decor, there’s something for any Frozen fan of any age. See 10 of my picks for the minis here.


Which one would be a hit in your house?

To send one lucky Champagne Taste reader on a little cyber shopping splurge of their own, I’m partnering with Kohl’s for a big giveaway. Who could use a little holiday blessing in the form of a $100 giftcard to help with your shopping and gift giving?!

Enter below for your chance to win and good luck!

forever 21 fab finds

I’m a huge fan of forever 21, trendy clothes and cute finds for right in my price range.  It’s one of my go-to stores when I’m in the market to add to my wardrobe, especially my shoes.

I recently went e-shopping on the site and found way too many pairs of booties that I want to add to my closet for the season.

Here are 5 of my top picks and of course, in Champagne Taste Beer Budget style, all at $40 and under.

1. stacked heel slingback open toe booties $32.80
2. stud buckle booties $31.99
3. fur buckle booties $37.90
4. suede wrap buckle booties $34.90
5.  suede open heel wedges $27.90


forever 21 finds


I absolutely love the deep hunter green heel booties but they’re sold out of my size online. It’s a tragedy, I know.

Which pair needs to be added to your seasonal shoe wardrobe?
