Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here! It is one of my favorite sales of the year because instead of marking down items that are about to be out of season, the anniversary sale offers up to 40 percent off of new items for the season ahead of us. By working with top brands, Nordstrom is able to offer discounts on items that do not regularly go on sale.
I’m mostly excited to shop for beauty products during the Anniversary Sale because they are something I always need and beauty products do not normally go on sale. In addition to stocking up on beauty favorites, I also love to get a start on my holiday shopping–Barefoot Dreams blankets make the best gift and I love getting them on sale–I also like to get new workout clothes, accessories and maybe a new dress!
It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us! While today is just a preview, the actual shopping will begin later this month based on card status.
July 12: Early Access for cardmembers with Icon status.
July 14: Early Access for cardmembers with Ambassador status.
July 16: Early Access for cardmembers with Influencer status.
July 28: Anniversary Sale opens to the general public.
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?!
Skincare is an integral part of my life and every season, I change up my routine a bit to keep up with the changing weather. I recently celebrated my 31st birthday and am proud to say I’ve never had botox or fillers. I rarely wear makeup and I think the combination of staying hydrated, wearing sunscreen and having a *strict* skincare routine has made my youthful glow stick around.
What I use:
I recently switched to the PMD brush from the Clarisonic I had been using for EIGHT years! I was so scared to make the change because I didn’t want to break out from using a new brush, but when Clarisonic went out of business, I could no longer buy new brush heads so I had I had to switch. And… I am so happy I finally did!! I LOVE the PMD brush for many reasons–financially, it makes a lot more sense than the Clarisonic brush because it is only $69 (currently on sale!) and I will never have to buy new brush heads. I have also seen a huge improvement in my skin. The brush has four speed settings–two that are for cleansing and two that are for massaging–I use the latter two to apply my serums and moisturizers.
During the pandemic, I began only washing my face in the evenings because I never really left my house during the day. In the morning I usually apply the Eye Authority Eye Cream by Hydropeptide and Tinted Sunscreen. When I wash my face at night, I begin by applying astringent all over to pick up all of the dirt that has built up from the day. Once I’ve done that, I rinse with water and begin cleansing my face using the PMD Facial Brush with the Replenishing Face Wash by SkinCeuticals. Unlike the Clarisonic, the PMD brush does not have a set timer so you can use it for as long or as little as you’d like. I do it for about a minute and once the soap has lathered, leave it on your face for a bit to soak in all of the nutrients.
