Black Friday / Cyber Week Cheat Sheet

I don’t know about you, but I look forward to grabbing stuff around Black Friday and Cyber Week all year. This year we’re actually looking at big ticket items like a car and a NEWWWW TVVVV (wheel of fortune voice) - but it’s also a great time to buy gifts for your family and friends and stock up on a few things for yourself as well, obviously! Below I’m putting together some of my favorite highlights from this year’s sale. I’ll try to keep them updated if I find new ones to share!

Some Black Friday tips!

  1. Don’t get stressed! It can be really overwhelming.

  2. Only shop for things you really need or want to get as gifts. It can be so easy to see something on sale and buy it just because it’s half off. Remember you don’t need to buy everything lol.

  3. Shop from home / online as much as possible. The days of waiting in line for hours for a TV that is $200 dollars below retail are gone. No need to leave the comfort of your couch unless you want to!

  4. Remember there’s so many things on sale today that aren’t just clothes and gifts, you can also book your next trip or even a botox appointment today, almost everyone has some sort of deal going on!

  5. Have fun! That’s what the holidays are about after all :)

Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping guys! Where are you spending your Thanksgiving holiday this year?

Home Faves from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Lili Alessandra bedding Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It's the most wonderful time of the year guys! No, it's not Christmas, but it is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  I think I get so excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale because it was a tradition to go with my Mom to the sale all through middle school and high school to stock up on clothes for back to school shopping. There's something so nostalgic about it that makes me oh so happy every time it comes around.

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a great time to stock up on clothes, sure, but did you know they have some great picks for the home as well? I'm sure while my mom was picking out school clothes for me she was getting stuff for the house back in the day :)

There's so many great things available it can be hard to even go through it all. Let's just say I've shopped some Christmas gifts already, lol! Today's round up is all of my favorite home essentials, but I'll be coming back here with my favorite clothing picks later this week, don't even worry. 

Below check out some of my favorite home goods from the sale and enter for your chance to win a $500 Nordstrom gift card so you can get shopping!

#NSale: My Picks

Unless you live in a cave, (and I'm jealous if you do cause this world is really scary lately)- you've heard about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale by now. The Anniversary Sale is the créme de la créme of sales, because unlike most sales, it gives you the opportunity to buy things from next season on sale, instead of bargains on last season. This is a plus because it gives you more time to wear the stuff and you get a great price on it too. WINNING. One of my favorite traditions growing up was going back to school shopping with my mom at this sale and it still holds so much nostalgia for me because of it.  Here's a break down of some of my favorites. Below you can shop the sale directly by clicking on the pictures of the items that you may like- no need to even leave your couch and go to your nearest Nordie's. Dangerous, I know. My very favorites from the gallery below are:

  1.  Alexander Wang booties - I am dying over them and definitely may be purchasing these before the sale is over. Oxblood is something you will be seeing a lot of this Fall, so these can be a total staple for the coming cooler months.
  2. The white Frame blouse with the neck bow is another staple I could see myself wearing with everything. My favorite shirts are white, and this one has a detachable bow which is so chic. It can be put with everything from your daily denim to a pencil skirt for those days you have an important presentation or just want to look extra pulled together. 
  3. Rebecca Minkoff fringe backpack: I have the non-fringe version of this backpack and it has been a staple in my closet for the past year and a half. I use it so much that it is literally falling apart in certain places and I need a new one, ha! Such an awesome buy for the price- you will not regret this purchase, especially with the great deal Nordstrom is offering- I have never seen these backpacks on sale other than here. 
  4. Zella "Cut it Out" High Waisted Leggings: I'm sure you're seeing a trend here and it's that I'm picking all staples. Last year, I bought Zella leggings at the sale and they've held up so well for athletic gear, and they're something that I can wear all of the time when I'm running errands or obviously heading to my favorite workout class(es). On these I love the mesh panels which give them an edge and the fact that they're high waisted which gives you the option of pairing them with a cute sports bra or cropped shirt. 

What are your favorite pieces from this sale? Let me know in the comments below! Happy shopping.
