This year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 is different in many ways – namely being pushed back to due to coronavirus. But unlike any other year, you could actually see EVERYTHING in the sale. You can’t shop the items quite yet depending on your member level, but you can add them to a shopping wishlist giving you the ability to plan your order well in advance. In year’s past, the first day of the sale has felt more like a free-for-all to throw whatever is left in your size into your cart before it sells out.
The advantage is now having the ability to budget and curate your wishlist accordingly for when your Nordstrom card membership level is allowed to start shopping. Speaking of, there have been changes and additions to this year’s shopping levels:
While tons of brands will go on sale during this event, there are a few that always fly off the shelves first, which also happen to be some of my favorites. Keep an eye out for these best-selling categories:
This sale can be overwhelming to navigate if you don’t have a need list or wishlist already prepared. There are literally hundreds of pages of sale items that can take some serious time to pour through. That’s where I come in – I’ll be saving you time and sharing all the top picks from the sale across multiple categories. Make sure to:
I recommend making purchases online so you can avoid going in-store and find your exact size without the hassle. If you want your items immediately, you can set the check out option to “Pick Up In Store” – or have your items delivered to you curbside.
Remember that you automatically earn free Nordstrom dollars to use towards purchases whenever you make a purchase in-store or online (including at Nordstrom Rack). Take advantage of this opportunity to earn some cash for future purchases.
If you are just applying for a card, you can use it to shop online or in stores instantly as long as you’re approved. You do NOT need to have the physical card to shop the event.
I couldn’t let the month of July pass by without rounding up my outfits under $50 from Walmart – it’s basically a monthly series now! I’m excited to see the emergence of some early late-summer, pre-fall styles and prints that are easy to start wearing right now. And I also want to call out that there are currently a TON of rollbacks happening across the fashion category, so make sure to click around for the deals.
A few things I wanted to call out from the collage:
Can you guess which things I have my eye on? (Hint: The entire top of the collage!) I also want to highlight the fact that I can order things like cute clothing online all in one cart with other household products that we need instead of having to checkout across multiple sites. (Have you taken advantage of Walmart’s grocery pick up on the app? It’s so easy.)
Just when I thought Walmart had dropped the BEST summer fashion collection, they went an dropped ANOTHER round of summer outfits under $50 this month. This time, we are seeing a lot of bold prints and colors to contrast last month’s pastel hues. The swimwear category has been updated with more cute styles as well. And I’m not kidding – no one is going to believe you if you tell them you found them on Walmart. Even if you don’t have a pool, just add one to your cart. We have this inflatable pool for only $40.

Since the quarantine began in March, I’ve been a bit stir crazy being in the house so much, and I’ve been dying to get in the sunshine. So we’ve been making sure to enjoy our little inflatable pool, strolls around the neighborhood, and evenings on the back porch with Bennett. That being said, I can’t stress enough how important it is to practice safe sun especially in the summer. Because, I’m also the one slathered with SPF, giant sun hat on, sitting in the shade. The truth is, my tan is almost never an actual tan from the sun.
Sure we all LOVE the look of glowing, tan skin, but you can get one while still ensuring the prevention of premature wrinkles and sunspots. In today’s blog post, I am sharing every single SPF and tanning method/product that I’ve tried over the years, and how I get a SAFE TAN ALL YEAR LONG!
Anxiousness has never been something that I’ve really experienced until postpartum last year, but now, I’m even more able to recognize the feeling on a daily basis. I especially noticed it during quarantine while home with Bennett and not able to spend much time working. And most recently, it’s started happening after spending extended time scrolling Instagram. To say being on social media lately has been heavy lately is an understatement. I’ve also noticed that there’s a more distinct relation to having numbers connected with the “worth” of my business and to myself.
For me, it shows up as irritability and restlessness with a racing feeling of never getting anything finished. There’s a looming feeling of inadequacy. Because of this, I tend to never feel fully present, feel impatient, and be short with people – especially loved ones.Have you felt it too?
If you have, there are many ways to quiet the noise when the world feels upside down. I’ve started working in more reading, painting, journaling, exercising, dedicated quiet time, and even mind stimulating puzzles and activities. Yoga, meditation, and acupuncture are also great. But all of these can require a block of time to add to your schedule. With a one-year old (especially during quarantine), adding MORE hasn’t necessarily been a feasible option for me most days. I have found that CBD is an easy, actionable step that I can add to my daily routine to find more balance.
Although, I’ve already talked about daily CBD use on the podcast, I wanted to finally share Equilibria here on the blog after several months of extended use. If you’ve been curious to give CBD a try, this post will be a great place to start. I also talk about postpartum anxiety more at length in my podcast episode with Equilibria.
