I have been shopping this sale since I was a child and I love stocking up on essentials during it. One thing I always look for during this sale is the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Lotion Pouch. This is my favorite lotion and you will not find it priced lower or at a greater volume than at the Anniversary Sale. I also like to treat myself to a new dress, workout clothes and boots and shoes for Fall.

This is also a great time to stock up on gifts. I always get several sets of candles, pajamas, bathrobes and blankets because they make beautiful gifts and it is great to get them on sale.

What are you shopping for at the Anniversary sale?!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! May 9th, to be exact, which is only three weeks away. Not to worry though, I’ve got gift suggestions to celebrate all of the mamas in your life from your mom to your grandma, sisters and friends.

If you’re looking for a mommy and me look for a Mother’s Day brunch with the fam, check out this adorable matching dress set from Zimmermann. If I were wearing the mama version of this dress, I’d pair it with Tom Ford sunnies, a chic Lee Radziwill bag from Tory Burch and studded Christian Louboutin Wedges.

Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber makes the perfect Mother’s Day Gift and it comes beautifully gift wrapped!

For the beauty lovers in your life, you can’t go wrong with the CE Ferulic serum from Skinceuticals. It is definitely a splurge and I have yet to meet a woman who hasn’t loved it, which makes it THE perfect gift to get for your baby mama! If they already have that and have dry skin, treat them to the La Mer Moisturizing cream. This moisturizer is so luxurious and will be such a pleasant surprise. If you’re looking for a fabulous perfume, I always recommend the Jo Malone fragrances. My personal favorite is Earl Grey and Cucumber because it is light, refreshing and reminds me of the spa. Fragrances can often be personal so a helpful tip to find the right scent for the mamas in your life is to look at what they already have. Just take a picture of their perfume bottle and buy them a new one…I know it will be much appreciated!

I know my mom loves pajamas so I always get her a new pair for Mother’s Day and this year will be no different. I absolutely love this beautiful floral pajama set from Nordstrom. If your mom is like mine and loves the cozy things in life, I’m sure she would also love a Barefoot Dreams blanket or a pair of the ultra light-weight Eva Birkenstocks that will be perfect for running around in this summer.

To help get the ladies in your life ready for summer, I know I would *LOVE* to get a matching swimsuit and pareo from Agua by Agua Bendita! It is a total splurge, but so beautiful!! I also love the mommy and me Mark and Graham straw beach totes. These make the perfect gift because you can customize the colors and add a monogram which is a thoughtful touch. If you’re traveling this summer, I’d suggest getting the MZ Wallace Large tote or the crossbody bag as a gift because these are truly the best bags to travel with and are so stylish. Speaking of travel, every girl needs a great pair of shoes to run around in and I think Veja’s are the best everyday sneaker, check out this all white pair for the summer.

If you’re looking to give your mama friends a nice gift to celebrate them, I think a rosé themed gift is perfect! You can get them a cute bottle of Cameron Diaz’s Avaline Rosé. If you want to add on to that, throw in a Vinglace bottle chiller and a Rosé All Day Sleeping Mask.

My two favorite ladies– my mama and my grandma on my wedding day!

I hope you all have a beautiful Mother’s Day this year and have a chance give the ladies in your life a big hug!

Brit’s Holiday Gift Guide for Stocking Stuffers

Brit’s Holiday Gift Guide for Stocking Stuffers

Can you believe Christmas is a mere three weeks away?! Growing up and even still today, Christmas stockings were one of my favorite parts of the holiday. I think I love stocking stuffers so much because they are like little extra gifts that you weren’t expecting, but that can be so amazing! Today I’m sharing stocking stuffer gift guides for women, men and children.

Hayley Menzies Tee, Laneige Lip Set, Beautybio Eye Masks, Stoney Clover Travel Pouch, Crushed Candy Cane Candle, Silk Face Mask, Beauty Blender Set,
Kiehl’s Lip Balm Set, Barefoot Dreams Socks, Jelly Bow Flip Flops

A t-shirt might seem slightly odd as a stocking stuffer, but I absolutely LOVE this Hayley Menzies leopard tee! I think it is an amazing stocking stuffer that so many women of all ages would love. You can pair it with jeans, a fun leopard skirt, leather leggings or even sweats and it is so chic.

Whether you’re traveling right now or just organizing your life, a clear pouch is so useful. Stoney Clover makes the cutest bags, pouches and masks and what I love most about them is that you can personalize them any way you like. From pink plush letting to rainbows and hearts, you can create the bag of your dreams or for the lucky ladies in your life.

Little beauty treats are always fun in a Christmas stocking so I would suggest throwing in some lip balms for sure. My personal favorites are from Kiehl’s and Laneige. Most women use beauty blenders to apply their makeup so this Beauty Blender combo set is the perfect gift. I love candles and seem to buy them for everyone for every occasion so when I found this crushed candy cane candle, I was way too excited! It is the perfect little holiday treat for everyone.

Since we’re all wearing face masks right now, why not have a nice one? I have been loving the Slip silk face masks and they’re definitely pricier than the average mask, but they make a beautiful gift and are very well made.

Of course we can’t forget about the feet and during the winter months I live in fuzzy socks and the Barefoot Dreams socks are the gold standard. They come in multiple colors and your loved ones will love them. I know flip flops are a little random as a stocking stuffer, but these adorable bow sandals from Amazon are too cute not to share! I just got a pair and can’t wait to wear them in Miami next month. They also come in a number of colors, but the nude is my favorite.

Airpods, Jack Black Skin Care Set, Black Tea Lip Balm, Sleeve of Golf Balls, Whiskey Soaked Campfire Jerky, Sustainable Socks,
Watercolor Playing Cards

Not that AirPods need much of an explanation, but basically if anyone in your life doesn’t have these, get them a set! I LOVE mine and it is so nice not having to mess around with wires anymore.

I don’t use male skin care products, but I do buy them for my husband and I have been loving the Jack Black products for him. They smell like a light, refreshing tea and my husband’s skin looks great. This kit or the lip balm will be a great addition to your man’s Christmas Stocking.

If you have a golfer in your life, I think a sleeve of golf balls is a great idea for a stocking stuffer. Men always run out of golf balls whether they’d like to admit it or not so these will be much appreciated.

If you’re looking for great gifts for the men in your life, I would highly recommend checking out Manready Mercantile. My husband and I know the owners well and they have the most unique gifts. From handmade candles to leather goods and fashions, this store has it all. I will definitely be getting my hubby the Whiskey Soaked Campfire Jerky and a set of sustainable socks. I know that sounds random, but I bought him a pair last year when Manready had their pop-up at the Nutcracker Market and I actually liked them so much that they are now basically mine so grab yourself a pair too! If you’re looking for another sock option for your man, I really like these playing card socks from Saks.

If a man in your life is from Texas, Louisiana or Florida or has some affinity for this part of the country, I would definitely suggest getting them a set of these beautiful watercolor playing cards. My husband is from New Orleans and his family has a home in Florida and many of them live in Texas now so I’ve bought several sets of these cards for his family this Christmas and I cannot wait to see how they react!

The Very Brave Lion, Plush Lion, Kitty Cat Face Mask, Dinosaur Face Mask, Reindeer Sparkle Pops, Electric Toothbrush, Christmas Growing Tree Kit, Sushi Kit,
Boys Graphic Briefs, Disney Princess Bikini Briefs, Pet Vet Play Set

I have it on very good authority (from my bestie Ava who is three) that The Very Brave Lion is a great book. Pair it with this plush lion and I think you will have a very happy little one.

Since were all wearing face masks, grab your little ones a fun animal one! I love the kitty cat and dinosaur options from Nordstrom.

For some fun toys for the kiddos, I love this Christmas tree growing kit, sushi bento box play set and of course the pet vet play set.

For more practical needs, these fun electric toothbrushes will liven up bathroom time for your littles and I think they will also love these undies sets!

I hope you’ve loved all of my gift guides! What have been your favorite items so far and what do you need more of? Leave me a comment and let me know!!

NSALE is open to the public!

NSALE is open to the public!

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is now open to all shoppers!! sadly, many items have already sold out, but there are still plenty available and some have even been restocked!! Check out my guides to see what is still available!

From this group, the Kiehl’s lotion, Dior sunglasses, eternity band, hoop earrings, Calvin Klein bra and Ugg slippers are still available. Aside from the Dior sunglasses and Bony Levy diamond band, these items are staples that I wear or use on a daily basis and would highly recommend scooping them top before they go back to their normal prices.

Aside from these items, I’ve shared a few more that I am loving from the sale that are still available! What I love most about the lip balm, candles and pajamas is that they make fabulous Christmas gifts. Last year, I added the mini diptyque candles to the gifts I gave many of my friends and family members and everyone loved them. Instead of paying $60 for one candle, you pay $55 for the whole set of five!

Diptyque Mini Candle Set

Happy shopping, friends! I hope you are able to find some items you love today!!

Brit’s Picks: My Guide to the NSALE

Brit’s Picks: My Guide to the NSALE

I am so excited the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially begun!! It is one of my favorite sales of the year because instead of marking down items that aren’t selling well, the anniversary sale offers up to 40 percent off of new items and some of the top items and brands sold at Nordstrom that do not regularly go on sale.

This is a great time to stock up on beauty products, holiday gifts and essentials. I am also excited this year to shop for Fall clothes because I finally live in a city where it gets a little chilly!! I’ve divided all of my picks into six different categories for easy browsing and I hope you love them as much as I do!!

Although this Anniversary Sale is a bit smaller than in other years, I do think there are some great items. I hope you love all my picks as much as I do and Happy Shopping, my friends!!
