It is that time of year… I don’t know about you, but it’s my Christmas in July… The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The time when a significant portion of the new Fall merchandise is on sale before the season. While the sale has changed a lot through the years, and if I’m being completely honest, each year seems to have less and less great options, it is still my mom and I’s annual tradition since I was 11-years-old. With that said, here are my top picks from the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
*Note – I will continue to add to this list as I find more great options.
Shoes:“Give A Girl The Right Shoes, And She Can Conquer The World”
I love collecting clothes. The beauty of clothes is what goes around comes around, so with that collection comes an abundant wardrobe that ends up being more affordable in the end. While not all of my old clothes fit thanks to two little girls and a post-baby body, I’m still lucky enough to have some items that still do the trick.
Now, I have fun shopping my closet and pairing old pieces with new items. Take this outfit for example. I just got these Wild Fable jeans for $20 at Target earlier this week and paired them with this leopard print jacket (that has been in my closet for a lot of years) and viola… I have a fresh outfit that only cost me $20 in recent years.
In addition to shopping my closet, I also tried the Laura Mercier’s metallic eyeshadows I received in my Influenster Vox Box. I love the Caviar Stick Eye Color. It goes on smoothly and even. Plus, the Magnetic Pink is so pretty on. As for the Caviar Chrome Veil Liquid Eye Color in Rose Gold Metal… The color is very pretty, but it goes on very blotchy. That said, as soon as I blended it in, it looked great, especially paired with Pixi Beauty’s Antique Rose and Metallic Rose shadows from their Eye Reflection Shadow Palette.
A few weeks ago, Panacea sent me this Daily Facial Cleanser to try. I have been using it ever since… and I kinda love it!
This creamy cleanser does a great job of cleansing your face without drying it out thanks to a perfect combination of the below ingredients:
Moisture Shield Complex – made up of Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Methylpropanediol, this complex leaves the skin radiant and moisturized.
Laminaria Japonica – this Japanese seaweed removes toxins, leaving behind glowing skin.
Vitamin E – this antioxidant prevents UV damage and protects the skin from free radicals.
Green Tea Extract – this antioxidant has anti-aging and skin soothing benefits.
Fig Extract – this ingredient is known to increase skin hydration and can decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne.
Ever since I started using this Panacea cleanser, I have noticed that it helps my skin keep that healthy glow while reducing the number of breakouts. Plus, a little bit of this stuff goes a long way. You’ll be happy to know that it is also Paraben-Free, Cruelty-Free and Sulfate-Free. You should totally check it out.
*Please note, Panacea sent me this Daily Facial Cleanser to try.
Let me just say that I was super excited when this Halogen sweatshirt arrived in time for me to kick off 2019! With the faux pearl detail on the black, it is so cute yet comfy and can be worn casually or dressed up a bit. Full disclosure, it does feel a little heavy when you put it on at first, but you don’t even notice after a few minutes.
It’s time for a little fun, am I right?! 2018 was a busy year filled with so many amazing moments and memories. Now we are closing out the year with a low key night, filled with Netflix, delivery pizza and cuddles with the kids as we wait for the ball to drop at midnight. I hope you are having an amazing New Years Eve and are having fun (while staying safe!)! Cheers to an amazing 2019!!! Happy New Year!!!
Now, on an entirely unrelated note, I love this Wildfox Couture sweatshirt from a few years ago. It’s super comfy and stood the test of time. Plus, it’s still in style! While you can’t get this exact shirt anymore, I have linked some similar ones below. Enjoy!
I love MAC Cosmetics lip glosses. And I love a good sale. So imagine how much I love this sale alert?! MAC’s Oh Sweetie Lip Glosses are part of Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale!
I am a huge fan of this lip line and wear this pink lip gloss all the time. The color is called Sugar Cookies (and it smells and tastes like a sugar cookie too… ummm, yum!!!), and it’s the perfect combination of a shimmery unique hue that still works for an everyday look. You should totally check it out at the link below. Enjoy!
Woohoo, it’s Friday! Who else is ready for the weekend? Anyway, this Face Mask Friday I was excited to try the Masque Bar 24k Black Gold Peel-Off Mask that was in my Influenster Let It Snow Vox Box. With charcoal and 24k gold, this mask is supposed to draw out impurities and brighten the skin.
Not going to lie, I was a little nervous to try this mask since the last charcoal peel-off mask I tried was so painful to remove. I am happy to report that this one peeled off really easily and my skin felt cleaner and looked brighter afterwards.
