I used to make it a birthday tradition to hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Clarification: I still honor that time-honored treat but this year I’m doing it solely online. I mean, it’s basically the birthday party that Nordie’s throws me every year. I can’t not. The beauty exclusives are killer and if you can bear to buy fall and winter clothes, then you’re the smart one come November with your 40% off wool and Frye boots. Guys, I’m not one of the smart ones this year. Because, 100 degrees on Friday. Though, there’s plenty of other stuff to get excited about.
I can get behind a Deborah Lippmann pastel palette every day of the year. I’m really feeling the lilac hues and mauve undertones in this set of six.
This kimono bathrobe. I’m certain wearing it in the early a.m. would make being awake more tolerable and it’s way sexy, too.
The Clarisonic Opal is your best pal, even if you don’t know it yet. This tiny device, meant for around the eyes, pulsates at high speeds and helps infuse your eye serum/cream (you can use any product you currently have!) deep into your pores. I’ve had my Opal for YEARS and it is one of my favorite beauty tools still.
Kiehl’s has a few awesome sets, all bundled up in a cute and useful bag. You basically get a full-size cream gratis.
This NARS Lip Pencil set is so baller that it already sold out online! I’ve got to get my lips on the Velvet Matte (the far right color) – called Provocative Red and only available with this set. At least they still have this trio!
It’s not a proper Anniversary sale without some Rebecca Minkoff. I love this soft pink Love Crossbody Clutch. Perfect mix of girly edge with that black chain strap.
The handbags and accessories are really where it’s at this year. This vegan leather tote looks SO similar to the Madewell totes, for only $30. This is a must!
A supersized designed tube of the famous Touche Eclat? Obviously.
