Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018: Favorites for the Lady

GUYS! It’s here! Women across the country set their alarms to wake up early and get early access to the best Sale of the year. If you’re unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, every summer Nordstrom selects a handful of their best new products for Fall and marks down the price for three weeks and three weeks only. That’s right-after August 5th, all these items will return to full price or sell out. It’s the only time brand new items are dramatically marked down for the new season, and it goes FAST. Early access (for Nordstrom card holders only) starts TODAY! And the public event begins July 20th. You’re in the right place, friends. 

Summer Hair Essentials

Summer is officially here, and I don’t know about you but my hair can already feel it. Between the chlorine, the humidity, the sun and the tangles from wearing it natural, this mane of mine needs all the pampering it can get. Here’s how I keep my hair growing healthy and strong in these dog days of summer. 

The Best of Amazon Prime for Fathers Day

Father’s Day is this weekend, friends. Let me say it again: this weekend. I’m a huge celebrator and gifts are my love language so I’ve had this day on my mind for a while but sometimes Fathers Day sneaks up on us and before we know it, it’s Saturday and we’re having our kids paint a pinecone. If you’re still scrambling for a gift, Here are my favorite Amazon Prime gifts that will arrive to your doorstep promptly in 2 days! And I’m not talking a bouncy ball or a mug here…these are some seriously good gifts. The dad in your life will have no idea you ordered it on your phone on a Wednesday. Win.

Flattering Swimsuits

The requirements for my swimsuits used to be really simple: don’t give me crazy tan lines. Since having kids, my swimwear has quite a hefty list to stand up to. It needs to hold certain things in and hide other things. It needs to cover my bum enough to be appropriate for chasing after kids and stay up when I’m dunking them in the water. Also, I have to feel fantastic in it. With the teenier-than-ever bottoms and strappier-than-ever top trend, finding the right suit can be intimidating but I’ve chosen a few favorites I can’t wait to try. 

Classics on Repeat

I’ve always favored Classic wardrobe pieces over any other. The ‘closet essentials’ tend to be the pieces I reach for over any trendy item I own which tells me to skip the crop top and choker and stick to my delicate gold necklace and simple day dresses. If I’m ever in a rut and can’t think of an exciting outfit to wear, I always know I can look pulled together in 5 minutes with this combination: denim jacket, black dress, sneakers. Works like a charm.
