Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- Beauty Picks!

nordstrom anniversary sale

Besides the clothing, shoes and accessories you can’t beat some of the beauty buys during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I use this time to stock up on my favorite products or try out some new goodies! Here are some of my favorite things from the sale:

Hourglass Blush Palette ($65) Hourglass makes some of the most beautiful highlighting products. These blushes are no exception. This palette will last you for sooooo long too. You won’t have to buy blush for a VERY long time!

Nuface Toning Kit ($217- original price $325)
I have had this kit in my bathroom closet for a while now and haven’t tried it yet but I have heard amazing reviews on how it tones and tightens your skin! I am all for a more youthful appearance!

Donna Karan Deodorant 3-pack ($65- original price $81) I realize this is a major splurge for deodorant but once you try it, you get the hype. This is my favorite deodorant I have ever used. I have actually been using it on and off for about 5 years now!

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Set ($60- original price $90) You all probably know by now that I am a big fan of all CT makeup! Their lipstick is my favorite brand of lipstick on the market. The colors are the prettiest and the formulation is the best. You get their famous ‘pillow talk’ liner and two lipsticks in this set!

T3 Micro Cura Hairdryer ($134- Original price $200) Hands down the best hair dryer! It’s quiet and efficient and pretty to look at on your counter! I actually prefer it over my Dyson one (please don’t tell my husband!)

Anastasia Brow Duo ($28- Original price $43) This is a great deal. I use both of these products every morning! The brow wiz stays put all day, no fading or flaking off. The brow gel keeps all your brow hairs in place. Your brows will look the same at 8p as they did at 8a when you first put these on!

Sara Happ Coconut Set ($32- Original price $46) I have said it before but this lip scrub is so good, you will want to eat it! It leaves your lips so soft as well. I exfoliate with this 2-3 times a week.

Cartier Perfume Set ($124- Original price $185) This is my signature scent and has been for years! I even keep a spare bottle in my car for a little refresher. It’s light and crisp and clean and soft- that is the only way I can describe the scent.

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Lotion ($52- Original price $75) This is one of those products you stock up on. It’s the best body lotion out there. I have been using it since I was in college. Trust me on this one! This bottle will last you a very long time.

Here are some other beauty picks from the sale I am loving or wanting to try-

Favorite Jeans Ever- Wit and Wisdom/Under $50/5 Styles/5 Outfits!

If you have been following me since last year’s Anniversary sale, you probably remember my obsession with Wit and Wisdom jeans. They are life-changing! YUP, for real. The Wit + Wisdom Ab-solution jeans, specifically. They have a hidden elastic waist and are the comfiest (and most flattering) jeans you will ever wear. They were my TOP Nordstrom Anniversary item last year and I have a feeling they will be again this year. I think word is spreading how amazing these jeans are. If you haven’t tried them, now is the time to grab a pair or two while they are deeply discounted! Prices will go back up ….!

 

Here are my top 5 pairs from the sale this year:

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Ab-Solution Skinny Jean / Pink Tunic Sweater– wearing an xs / White Studded Loafers– wearing my regular size 8 / Crossbody Bag

Price: $44 (regular price $68)

Color: In-Indigo

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: Yes

These are the perfect dark denim skinny jeans. Very minimal whiskering and fading. There is also no distressing to them at all which is a nice change for some of us!

 

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Button Fly Skinny Jeans / Thermal Henley Top– sized up to a small for a looser fit / Wedge Sneaker– fit is true to size.

Price: $51 (Regular price $78)

Color: Blue

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: No

These jeans really surprised me! I didn’t expect to love them as much as I do or have them be as stretchy or comfortable. I like how they look slightly cuffed too. Perfect to pair with booties!

 

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Button Fly Ankle Skinny Jeans / Stripe Tee– only $11 & wearing an xs / Fuzzy Cardigan– mine is last years style, linked this years! / Black Ankle Booties– true to size!

Price: $51 (Regular price $78)

Color: Black

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: No

I really love the button fly style so it was an obvious choice to grab the black as well!

 

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Ab-Solution Stretch Ankle Skinny Jeans / Button Henley-wearing an xs but I would say it runs a bit big / Leopard Mules– wearing my regular size 8 / Crossbody Bag

Price: $44 (Regular price $68)

Color: Black

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: Yes

These are basically the most perfect pair of black jeans ever! The elastic waist makes them almost like leggings but they are still jeans- best of both worlds!

 

wit and wisdom
Wit + Wisdom Ab-solution Skinny Jeans / Striped Tee-sized down one size to an XXS, only $15/ Barefoot Dreams Cardigan– so soft, wearing xs/s / Tan Slingback Flats-wearing my regular size 8 / Crossbody Bag

Price: $44 (Regular price $68)

Color: Blue

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: Yes

I saved the best for last! These ones are my favorite from the sale! I love the lighter wash the best. There’s more whiskering on these ones as well.

Gift Ideas for Father’s Day!

father's day
Father’s day is right around the corner, and if you are anything like me- you are scrambling to think of a good gift for the men in your life. It’s hard because a lot of us have multiple guys to buy for- husbands, fathers, grandfathers, etc. The list goes on. So I have put together some fabulous gift ideas for these special men, all of which you can get from Walmart! I want to point out specifically the Harry’s shaver! My husband has been using this brand for a while and absolutely loves it. Walmart recently started carrying it (how awesome if this exclusive blue color?!) and the best part is- it’s super affordable so you can gift the razor and other Harry’s accessories to ALL the men in your life and be WAY under budget! Don’t forget to buy them refills too!

Some other gift ideas- more so if you only need to buy for one guy- are a bit pricier but again you can just run to Walmart to pick them up or order online and even do in store pick up so you don’t have to wonder around the store!
I have these Bose Wireless Headphones and love them so much. I use them all the time when I am doing work on my computer or watching Netflix. Also we just bought the new Nest Thermostat bundle. It comes with a free Google Home Mini. My husband said the thermostat is super easy to install so even those not-so-handy handyman can probably figure it out!

Lastly- you can never go wrong giving someone a good book. The Alchemist just so happens to be my husband’s favorite book so I thought I would include it here! Or you could give a little gift basket to your loved one- a book, the new Harry’s razor and the google home mini? That would be a great little gift and it would come in just a bit over $50! Not too bad!

My Favorite Kids’ Car Seat for Travel!

This little post is long overdue. My #1 most asked question of all time is- “what color is the paint on your walls?” BUT my #2 most asked question has got to be, “what was that kids’ car seat you talked about that using when you travel?” No joke I must get asked about it at least 5x a day. So now hopefully doing this mini blog post about it will make it easier and more accessible for all of you!

Traveling with kiddos is no easy task. Especially when they are at the age where they don’t want to sit on your lap anymore but they also don’t get the appeal of an ipad either. We had a terrible trip down to Florida at the beginning of the year and one of my amazing followers recommended¬†this car seat for travel. It;s great because it’s super light-weight and inexpensive and it allows your kiddos to fall asleep once in flight. We always talked about taking our big, heavy, everyday car seat with us on trips but it is SO cumbersome and I really didn’t want to worry about anything happening to it. So this $45 car seat was the perfect solution. I know TONS of you, probably hundreds have ordered it and used it for flights with great success. (thank you for all the messages- again, I get them almost daily!)
Another question I get asked is if we use this car seat while on vacation. The answer is yes- sort of. The times we have traveled with it, we are going to a destination with extended family who are able to watch and play with our kids so that my husband and I can go out and do things together. We use the car seats to go to and from the airports to the hotel but not much after that. They are a five-point harness but I just don’t want to rely on it’s safety in an accident so we really just use as minimally as possible once we get to our destination.


I hope this answers all of your questions- if you have anymore, feel free to DM me or leave it in the comments!
