Nordstrom Sale Tips

Basically I’ve only been a “super fan” of the Nordy’s sale for the last two years. The first year I didn’t have a card until halfway through presale and then last year I was there the first day of presale when the mall opened. This year I’m a level 4 rewards member so I got to shop a day before everyone else and it was pretty amazing. But I thought I would post some of my tips for getting the most out of the sale:

  1. Of course (obligatory) check back here first thing tomorrow morning for my picks and follow the links to buy or reserve in store!
  2. When in doubt – buy it! Things are going to sell out SUPER quick, they always do. So make sure that if you want something you buy it – the great thing about Nordstroms is their return policy so take advantage! You don’t want to miss out on something you really want and regret it.
  3. Figure out which bloggers have a similar style to you and check their stories first thing tomorrow! They’ll post what they bought today and you can see sizing tips and reserve it online in store or buy it before it sells out. You may think I’m crazy but 5 separate things I wanted were sold out before I even made it in store last year…when it opened…the first day.
  4. Also this is like the royal wedding and christmas and black friday combined. Lots of people wake up at 2am when the catalogue drops to buy stuff and a bunch of bloggers will have their stuff tagged and posted by then. Feel free to be one of these crazy people.
  5. If you’re a card holder – it can’t hurt to get a personal shopper in store (if you’re in North Dallas Lauren at Stonebriar is mine and she’s amazing). They can pull some of the things that are going quick for you to try on or even order stuff for you before you get there for pick up.
  6. If you try something on and it doesn’t fit perfect but you really love it – almost all card holders get some amount of free alterations. You can always have it taken in etc. Also ask the sales person because some clothes (like 7 jeans) ALWAYS have free Nordstroms alterations with purchase. Can’t hurt to ask.
  7. Obvi- if you can get to level 4 an extra early day of shopping is great, but don’t break the bank to do it. I only hit last year because I furnished both nurseries and got all the stroller/car seats at Nordstrom. (its a $10,000 minimum). I’m not suggesting you go into a bunch of debt in order to shop early, but they carry a ton of stuff online that they don’t in stores so it can’t hurt to check throughout the year to get those levels.

Everything hits tomorrow (7-12) for cardholders and then on the 20th for everyone else. Keep checking back here over the coming weeks for some of my favorites!



Push present: Diamond Band

In the south we like to do something called a “push present”. Basically it is where, in exchange for birthing a baby, mom gets something she wants from dad. Honestly, sounds pretty fair to me. If you’ve never heard of this don’t fret – you can tell your husband later and demand recompense 🙂

Anywho, years ago before Dave and I were even married, I read an article on Pinterest where this woman got a diamond band each time she had a child (thank god she only had 3 and not 7) and stacked them with her engagement ring. The idea was that when her kids were old enough to get married she would give them “their” ring to use in an engagement ring or a wedding band so that they each had their own and didn’t have to fight over her engagement ring. I loved the idea, so when David and I got married I told him I didn’t want a wedding band I only wanted an engagement ring, but that he would pay for it down the road. LOL

When Kensington was born I got my first band – a beautiful platinum infinity band with diamonds (convenient that Kensington’s birth stone was a diamond). I loved the way it looked with my engagement ring and figured even if platinum or infinity bands are out of style when she gets married she can always use the diamonds.

With Everett’s birth this year I wanted something to compliment my existing rings but be slightly different. His is a beautiful band with 7 round diamonds. I absolutely love it.

What were some of your push presents?

WIMCW Father’s Day Gift Ideas

With Father’s Day right around the corner, I thought this week I would share some of my favorite gift ideas for that guy in your life. Some of these are things my husband would want (or asked for).


I post about this company a fair bit but I LOVE Welly Merck Watches. I have the Los Angelas for women and love it. This one is the Paris for Men and I think it’s very nice looking. Their watches are high quality swiss without the expensive price tag. Use code Lattes15 for 15% off your order!


I absolutely love the espresso machine my husband got me for mother’s day. If your guy is into coffee, starbucks, and smooth espresso I love the Breville Espresso Machine.


I don’t even buy Dave normal shirts anymore – if you (or your husband) hasn’t discovered UnTuckIt shirts – go buy one. They’re shorter so they can be worn untucked, high quality, and fit GREAT. It’s all David wears now. They have a ton of cool colors and prints and make polos now too. They also do matching father/son shirts…yeah. Amazing.


I’m not going to go into too much detail here (LOL) but MeUndies boxers…they’re soft, loose enough to be comfortable, and double as shorts. JK for that last part. I got David a membership of these last year for fathers day (mostly because he needed new undies) and he likes them better than more expensive brands like Tommy Johns.


David just bought these Gray Jeans (does anyone know the difference between grey & gray? Like is one British? I can never decide which to use LOL) and he swears they are the most comfortable jeans he has. Plus the grey color goes with everything and makes the outfit look a bit nicer than just denim. I recommend their slim fit pair – he tried on the straight leg and they were really baggy.


David has super wide feet and finding him comfortable shoes is always a HUGE pain. I can’t tell you how many pairs of shoes we have returned or he goodwills because they are too narrow. This Hawaiian shoe brand makes a REALLY cool sneaker, that can get wet and has pores to air dry, and looks sleek that actually fits his foot. Make sure your guy tries them on though because as I mentioned they are wide.


My husband does the lawn work. He loves it (which is good because I would have no idea where to even start) but he always wants new lawn equipment. His preferred brand is Echo and this year the top of his list is a new blower. I’ve already replaced his weed whacker, lawn mower, and trimmer/edger so this is the last one. For a bit…LOL.

Hopefully this helps you ladies out there still looking for good Father’s Day gift ideas.



Baby Bedtime

IS there anything worse than the first few weeks with a baby who won’t sleep? For both of our kids swaddling was the secret to a calm baby and we relied heavily on sleep sacks (since in class swaddling a doll with a muslin cloth was really easy but a squirming baby in real life was dang near impossible). Recently I’ve discovered my new favorite baby product: Swado Swaddles. They sent mean to try and they are amazing!


These swaddles are super soft and come in tons of patterns, but thats not why I like them so much. Instead of velcro like other swaddle companies (which are not just loud but also really jarring when you open them twisting around the baby) they have…I don’t even know what to call it – Magic fabric? It seriously sticks together even though I can’t explain why and comes apart way easier than velcro but is just as strong when it’s on the baby.  I can’t recommend it enough.

I do not receive any compensation for product purchased but I really love it! Highly recommend.



Favorite Lipsticks

I love a good lipstick. I always feel naked if I’m not wearing one (i’ve eve been made fun of for showing up to 6am Barre with no makeup but lipstick on lol). And of course, needless to say, I have a bit of an addiction trying out new ones. So today I’m sharing my favorite brands, colors, and uses for my lipstick collection.


Fresh Sugar tinted lip balm in “Petal”. I wear this all day every day. It’s hydrating, not super thick or extreme, and gives a really pretty color. It’s super hydrating but word of warning not very long lasting.

RMS Lipstick

RMS Beauty Wild with Desire Lipstick in “Brain Teaser”. This is a super pretty natural shade, and if you haven’t heard me brag on RMS Beauty and their all natural ingredients…well…I like them a lot. And their ingredients. and this super thick long lasting lipstick. Yeah.

CT Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in “Hepburn Honey”.  I like this color a lot. Its a smidge bolder than the Brain teaser and really great for a night out without being dramatic.


Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Creme Lip Stain in “Rose Mix”. This is an awesome lip stain that goes on more like a really thick gloss. It lasts a long time and comes in SO MANY cool colors. It feels really velvety and expensive on too. Just Saying.
