My Wishlist






It's the most wonderful time of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here!  Haha, I'm only half kidding because if you're at all fashion girl then you know what I mean.  Every July Nord's rolls out their first look at fall which is exciting enough on its own but what's better is they drop prices lower than most end of season clearance sales...on NEW merchandise!  The only trick, you have to be fast in order to score the items you want before they are GONE.  And I do mean super quick as some things sell out within minutes of going live on the website.  So, with that being the case here are the pertinent details you'll need to get what you love.  

Shop early and shop often.  If you want in on the sale right now before it goes live to the public "the card is the key" as they say.  Simply head on over to the Nordstrom website where you can sign up to be a cardholder and you will gain early access to the sale and all its savings.  What I love about being one (and there are many) is that I can use my Nordstrom debit card to make my purchases and earn rewards points.  These then equate into twenty dollar notes which can multiple and be spent on future purchases and because I requested a debit card, any all all money I spend comes right out of my checking account so now debt accumulates.  If, however, you'd rather it not work that way then you can request the Nordstrom credit card and pay it off at a pace you're comfortable with.  Either way you still get all the perks and never miss out on what's going on.

So, these are some of the items I picked up over the weekend.  While I happen to be one of those people who loves to look, see and feel it in person, I suggest you shop the sale online right now to first see if the items you want are currently available.  And, if you like it, I suggest you get it because you can always return it (Nordstrom's return policy is unmatched, another reason I love shopping with them).  This sweater was one I knew I had to have from the moment I saw it, haha.   Well, in other words, I really liked it.  Unfortunately, it is currently sold out but I'm hoping they'll restock for the 19th when the sale goes live tp the public.  This Coach bag is the perfect shade for all year round and especially for autumn.  I love the shape and style and how well it will go with so many of these cute styles.  This Michele watch is so pretty and you can start wearing it right now in this color combination.  The clothes aren't the only items worth scoping up right now.  The beauty deals are some of the best I've seen in recent years of the sale.  This lipstick set from Charlotte Tilbury is her best seller duo for a sweet steal.  I'm also in love with these colors in this MAC palette.  Cannot wait to wear these!  More of my beauty picks will be on the blog later this week so stay tuned.  Until then you can shop the links below right now if you have the card or wait for the sale to go live to the public on July 19th.  Get the details here!

Hope everyone is having a great Monday and looking forward to a wonderful week ahead.  Thanks for sharing the start of it with me! You guys are the best!!

Happy Friday!  What's everyone doing this weekend?  If you're heading to the beach, lounging at the pool or even just spending some time enjoying outdoors then the likelihood is your hair is being exposed to more damage and stressors than usual.  If you're noticing that summer fun is starting to show on your tresses not to worry.  Today's post is all about excellent ways to do damage control and prevent hair havoc from happening.  

First things first, trimming your ends on a regular basis is a must.  As counterintuitive as it seems, snipping the ends will actually help your hair grown longer and healthier as breaking begins at at the bottom and can cause strands to split up towards the root.  Hydration is key when it comes to maintaining the health and suppleness of your hair.  A great mask packed with oils that can penetrate the hair shaft is something I indulge in weekly.  This one leaves my hair feeling so soft and silky and just completely nourished.   

My hairstylist swears by this line and I am so excited to try this dry oil mist from them.  Rich in marula oil and perfect to toss in your bag and spray on at the beach.  You'll be silky and hydrated all day long.

 Also remember, beauty starts from within.  Be sure you are treating your body well and nourishing your hair with the proper vitamins and minerals it craves.  These yummy gummy supplements are filled with the hair enhancing nutrients your body needs.  Try taking them for a month and I promise you'll notice the beautiful results in your hair, skin and nails.

  Finally, treat your tresses gently when brushing and combing by investing in a boar bristle brush and a wide tooth comb.  Wet hair is the weakest so I always take care to comb it through with a comb like this one.  Then, once it's dry, a boar bristle brush will allow you to care for our hair without causing any unnecessary pulling or tugging that leads to breakage.

Simple steps like these are easy ways to care for your hair and ensure that your style only gets better over time.  Honestly, they are not that hard and actually something I look forward to as I know the benefits of taking the time for a little self care.

Hope you all are enjoying these wonderful days of summer...does it get any sweeter? Haha...actually it does because the Nsale is now underway and cardholders are invited to enjoy early access.  Details on how to sign up are here and I will be back soon with my first picks for fall!

Have a great weekend everybody!

Most of us live long hair dreams.  Flowing, lush, glossy, lengthy locks are what we all admire but every now and then you have to embrace the chop.  Cara Loren and Destiny Thompson are two beauties who've done just that and their chic cuts show us how sweet and sexy shorter can be.  I actually had short locks myself about four or five years ago and have to say I loved it!  You can check that out here. A swingy little bob is definitely a great accessory and never short on style!

These are some of my favorite shots of how to wear the cut in so many fun ways.  How cute is that barrette? Summer is such a perfect time to try this look on for size.  Hello beach waves, haha.  What about you?  Anyone else feel like becoming a new woman?  I'm actually heading to the salon today for "a trim".  I'll keep you posted...

Have a great one ladies...xo.

Summer's here and the living is easy but that may not always be true for your skin this time year.  Summer months are filled with everything we love to do including the surf, sand and sunshine but these much loved pastimes are not so sweet on our skin.  Not to worry though because with a little extra tlc, you can protect, pamper and prevent  unnecessary damage to your skin.  

Rule number one is to always prep your skin to fully receive any of the products and treatments you're currently using in your routine.  A balanced essence will help to allow your skin to accept the nutrients and goodness your products can provide.  This one blends glycolic acid and grape water to  sweep away dead skin cells and allow products to penetrate to the layers below where they will be truly effective. 

 During the daytime and especially in summer, protection against both free radicals and sun damage is essential.  A great vitamin c serum and well made physical block sunscreen will ge the job done.  This formula from Dr. Gross has some wonderful skin brightening and firming properties you and your face will love.  Top it with an SPF like this one and you are well prepared to face the day.  

Nighttime rituals are a crucial step towards keeping your skin plump, hydrated and youthful.  Try working an effective retinol serum and/or overnight emulsion into your regime.  Sunday Riley has recently marketed this one which I'm looking to try.  I love the fact that it is housed in a dark bottle and  dispensed via a pump.  Air and light have no place in your skincare!  iS Clinical also offers a beautiful blend of peptides, antioxidants and botanicals designed to synergistically energize and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep.  Yes, please!  

Finally, excellent little extras such as sheet and eye masks will round out the perfect routine.  I love adding them in every chance I get.  And by the look of things, my skin does too, haha!  I hope you find something to love here that you end up adding to your routine.  I know your summertime skin will thank you.  Have a beautiful day lovelies!

Have you ever been to a place so blissful you never wanted to leave? Ever.  For me that place is The Cape and most especially the sweet isle of Nantucket.  If you've never been let me paint you a picture and if you have been then you know...Imagine sun soaked mornings filled with the scent of the salt air amid the sprawling setting of gambrel roofs and flower filled verandas.  One home more beautiful than the other.  Local traffic consists of pastel bicycles, Wagoneers and patient seagulls in flight.  A place where there exists no sense of hurry and every day feels like Sunday.  This American oasis is rich in history and full of charm.  Summer is the perfect time to experience the feel of Massachusett's finest.  It's also the moment to bring some of this seaside charm right into your own home no matter where that may be.  One simple way to capture those seaside feels is with a nautical inspired pillow.  These shades of blue do the trick effortlessly for little investment.  Add some oceanside charm to your kitchen too with some pretty plates like these.  This set can be incorporated into any neutral decor with a splash.  I also love faux coral accent pieces.  This one is gorgeous and exactly what your tabletop is begging for.  Woven basket catchers in soft grey are the right spot to house books, extra pillows and a cozy throw for sea breeze nights.  Last, let your senses transport you to the sea with a delicious candle or room oil like this one.  I absolutely love the fresh summer feel it gives to my house and dare I say, I'm addicted, haha.

I hope these pieces leave you inspired to head to the beach.  I can't wait!  Have a wonderful Wednesday friends and happy Fourth of July!
