Here is one of my favorite times of the year. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!
Sale is a great time to stock up on your essentials, staples…your ride-or-die items. But it’s also fun to score some high-ticket items if they’re on sale.
When it comes to high priced stuff, especially clothes, I like to think of it as an investment. My advice is to become a classic. Think of it as something you’ve had for a really long time. The more classic it is, the less likely it will go out of style and the more you keep coming back to it.
I want to get all of these items straight away so you can start shopping ASAP. In this post, you’ll learn about the most flattering lipstick of all, an amazing face tool I can’t live without, and my favorite blanket in the entire world (it’s a Kardashian favorite too).
