Happy Monday sweet friends! I don’t have a look, or a book list, or really anything in particular to share today. While I’m not sure that anyone noticed, today I wanted to take the opportunity to have a little chat & explain why I chose to take a break from blogging & social media for the last few weeks.
Last week Sephora announced a surprise sale – the Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Event! Sephora has 3 tiers in their loyalty program – Rouge, VIB, & Insider. This surprise sale was open to Rouge members last week & opened to VIB & Insiders yesterday. Rouge members get 20% off, VIB members get 15% off, & Insiders get 10% off. You can use the codes multiple times in Sephora stores, but only once online. If you aren’t a Beauty Insider, it’s not too late to join & enjoy the benefits of this sale. Today I wanted to pop in & share some of my beauty favorites that are on sale & what I’m picking up from the sale. The sale ends 9/3/18, so happy shopping!
Summer is a time for lighter make-up & I’ve been wearing more shimmer than I do in the fall/winter. This is a look that I work for a date night to have oysters on Tuesday night & I wanted to share it with you guys! Below is everything that I used to create this shimmery-eye summer look.
Happy Friday the 13th! I’m not really superstitious, but I’ll admit that I took a little pause this morning when I checked the calendar. Have you shopped the NSale yet? I’ve stocked up on layering pieces, cardigans, & some fall shoes so far. Check out yesterday’s post to see what was in my cart & what’s on my wishlist, or keep track of what’s hot on my #NSale page. Is anyone else excited for the weekend? It’s been a long few weeks. Work has been busy & I’ve spent my nights trying to recover from the workday, so everything else has fallen by the wayside. I’m hoping to have a GSD (“get sh*t done”) day tomorrow & catch up.
Eeek! It’s finally here guys! I was up bright & early this morning, armed with coffee & my laptop to sort through all of the amazing deals in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka #NSale). If you’re new to the sale, check out my overview post here, b/c we’re going to get right into the good stuff! I’ll be updating each category on the #NSale page (see the tab at the top of the blog) as things sell out or are added throughout the sale! So, what did I order this morning? And what’s still on my wishlist?

TGIF Friends! I’m back today with another round of book reviews! I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted one of these! As always, I’m giving you my honest opinion on some of my latest reads. This set is a mix of thrillers, YA, chick-lit, & beach reads, so there’s something for everyone!
Can you feel the excitement in the air? The most highly anticipated sale of the year is almost here! That’s right friends, it’s almost Nordstrom Anniversary Sale time! If you aren’t familiar with the #NSale, it’s the once yearly sale when Nordstrom releases BRAND NEW fall pieces at discounted prices. This sale truly lives up to the hype – you can get top name brands (think Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Madewell, Topshop) at seriously low prices! Early access to the sale starts July 12th for Nordstrom cardholders, then opens to everyone on July 20th. On August 6, everything goes up to full price. The 2018 Sale Catalog went live on Monday & I’ve already been scoping out the best picks to share with you. Since the best items sell out really fast, I wanted to share a quick Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Sneak Peek & Tips for making the most of the sale!
TGIF friends! This is not my current view, but oh how I wish it were! I’m in my office today, not on a beach in Honduras. It’s been a long & busy work week, without time for much else. On the bright side, we booked another cruise for October & this time our families are joining us! We’ll be exploring some of the same places, but also some new places. Tonight I’m off to celebrate a friend’s birthday with a fish fry, then spend a quiet rest of the weekend at home. I’m hoping to get some of the clutter straightened up, catch up on some blog work, start putting together a website that I’m designing (my first, eek!), & get caught up on some work for my day job. Have a great weekend!
