Nugget Ice Maker

This is one of the BEST Black Friday deals this year! I’m absolutely, completely, totally OBSESSED and in love with this nugget ice maker! It's a bit of an investment, yes, but ALL of the other built-in model nugget ice makers that I've ever looked into buying were literally thousands of dollars, not in the hundreds.

Our pebble ice machine is not only MY favorite, but Neil's, our girls, AND our neighbors and friends who drop by just for a cup of nugget ice. Best purchase ever!!! I've blogged about it in a past kitchen reveala gift guide, and my third trimester pregnancy favorites.

I love that this one can be plugged into the wall ANYWHERE and that it doesn't have to be hooked up to a water line – we just pour bottled water into the bottom and it produces the most perfect, chewy, heavenly pebble ice you could imagine.

If you've got a party coming up, or you're hosting Christmas at your house, or you have an office or a butler's pantry (where we store ours) it's SO perfect! But really, this ice machine is the best to have in EVERY situation. You'll be surprised how much you use it!!

NUGGET ICE MAKER deal: 22% OFF at $409.99 (reg. $529)!

All of these extra accessories will help you get a jump start on your Traeger grilling and cooking life without having to figure out how to source the pellets or temp probes. It all just comes in one package.

Dyson Hair Products

I'm always on the hunt for deals on Dyson everything, but it's pretty rare when a deal on TWO of my beauty favorites pops up at the same time. So it's time to get really excited because right now you can save over $100 on these fave Dyson hair products of mine! SUPER excited about these Black Friday deals.

  • $150 off the Dyson Airwrap (refurbished) – $399.99 (reg. $549.99)!!

Is it okay to buy refurbished?

What does refurbished mean? This means that it's been opened, or a minor flaw has been repaired, but it's gone through a rigorous process to deem it ready for resale!

My experience with buying refurbished items has been flawless. I've literally never bought anything refurbished and had a bad experience – including everything from electronics to hair products. Buying refurbished is often an incredible (and super smart) way to save on an item that's a little bit of a splurge!!
