I’m Here For Ya!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
July 21, 2016

Unless I am the only blogger that you follow, you are sick and tired of hearing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that just went live today (it has been in pre-sale for Nordstrom cardholders this past week). This is a great sale because it isn’t an end of season sale and it includes lots of cosmetics. I was going to totally skip talking about the Sale because #1) it has been beaten like a dead horse by bloggers and #2) sales like this, with their crowds and sense of urgency, cause me to have anxiety and need wine. However, I was in Atlanta this week so I popped in a Nordstrom and cruised behind the “Sneak Peak/Card Holders Only” curtain and noticed lots of things I have blogged about in the past are on sale so I thought I would hook you up with a few items you might find of interest.
I talked about the Foreo Luna in a gift guide last Christmas before I owned one, but since then I have purchased one and I am in love. My Clarisonic finally kicked the bucket (it was old and I had dropped it more times than I could count) and I wanted to try something new. I love the Luna because you never have to replace a brush. The silicone tips that vibrate and clean your face never dull and are anti-bacterial. It also stays charged forever. Literally I bought mine in February and I charged it for the first time in June before a trip just to be safe. There is a Foreo Luna for all skin-types and they make a tiny Luna for travel that lasts up to 100 washes and costs $39. If you’re still in a heated relationship with your Clarisonic, Nordstrom has the replacement brushes on sale too so go ahead and stock up.
You know you are going to have to buy stocking stuffers and neighbor/teacher gifts. If you are an over-achiever go ahead and check a few things off your list. Nordstrom has Jo Malone perfume, Voluspa candles and Deborah Lippmann nail polish sample sets on sale.
I am a big fan of Bobbi and she is all over this sale. This brush set is great for travel and these blush, eye shadow, and lip kits are a great price for shades you will be buying anyway if you frequent the Bobbi counter.
So I am trying to go super natural with my deodorant but Alabama summers have made this impossible. I am working on a post comparing several different natural deodorants (current fave) but this time of year you have to call in the big guns and I love Donna Karen’s Cashmere Mist. I realize that $25 for deodorant seems expensive but one bottle will last you 3 months, it works, it smells amazing and if you buy it on sale it’s only $20 a bottle.
Speaking of deodorant, these Whish deodorant wipes are also part of the Sale and would make a great addition to your gym bag, glove compartment or clear handbag on game day. They are all-natural and are a nice mid-day/half-time refresher.
Okay, I have never used one of these pillowcases but the technology sounds really cool. I do sleep on a satin pillowcase because I have always heard it helps with wrinkles and I know it preserves a professional blowout, but this pillow case is next level and I am getting one. I mean it’s my birthday week.
I do love my Beauty Blender and this set from the Sale takes the price from $25 to less than $15 and includes the cleansing bar. I will say that on my trip to Ulta today I picked up the Real Techniques blender for $6 and from what I have heard they are amazing. I will let you know.
I have no intention of trying to talk you in to buying fall clothes right now. It’s too hot, I can’t think that far ahead and I am a whim shopper. I do however know that I will buy some basic shirts and dresses, a few pair of jeans and some boots. Why not get them on sale? I’ve just discovered Topshop’s jeans (they are less than $70 when they aren’t on sale) and this pair and this pair are currently in my cart. I’m sure I can’t own enough v-neck t-shirts and this dress in black and this dress are both great transition pieces. I love these open toe booties and if you ever wanted the Stuart Weitzman 50/50 over the knee boots but weren’t feeling the price these boots are a great dupe. But hey, if you have to have the name brand 50/50 boots, they are also on sale. Last thing, if you are in the market for a new handbag or wallet Nordstrom has huge discounts on lots of designer options.
Happy shopping my friends.
