I hope I prepped you enough with this post about Nordstrom’s Anniversary Salebecause Early Access is in full swing! One of the first things I like to stock up on are the beauty steals and deals. I spotted so many great products included in the sale and have a feeling they won’t last on the shelves. In today’s post I’m sharing a TON of my picks that I currently own and use on a regular basis. (I’ll also be posting a full IGTV video recap on my Instagram too!) I recommend shopping now, so you can mark everything off your list and update your beauty routine. Keep reading for the best beauty buys in this year’s Nordstrom sale!
I’m always looking for ways to keep my hair looking its best, and I leave it to the right products to help me achieve that. Brands like Aveda and Drybar have always been favorites, so I’m definitely stocking up on both of those! Also a favorite is Alterna, and there jumbo bottles are included in the sale!
I’m a true product junkie, so I’m really excited to see so many makeup sets exclusive to the sale – so you don’t want to miss out. With brands that rarely go on sale, like Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Nars, and Lancome in the mix, it’s your chance to splurge on luxury makeup without regret.
Skincare products can get super expensive, so I like to take advantage of the sale to test out high-ticket skincare brands. I have my eyes on picks from Kate Somerville and Lancome. Plus La Mer is topping my list of sets to try.
If you have ever considered trying a professional-grade styling tool, this is the time! Quality heat tools are important so you can minimize damage and keep your hair healthy. Nordstrom covered the full spectrum of haircare tools in their sale with pro-quality blowdryers and irons – I use my T3 heat tools religiously!
There are so many new innovations in the skincare world that I’ve been meaning to try. I actually picked up the NuFace’s Facial Toning Device, and I’m also really interested in the microneedling set. My skin needs all the TLC it can get after all this traveling.
Last month, I got to be a part of a DREAM trip with Lilly Pulitzer to celebrate their new “Lilly Pulitzer Cottage” at White Elephant Nantucket! Ever since visiting the island for a quick day trip two summers ago, I’ve been dying to get back to it’s beautiful hydrangea-filled yards and charming homes. Along with Jen from Style Charade, Brittany from Loverly Grey and Jenn from Haute Off the Rack, we were able to experience the best of Nantucket, and I’m here to spill all the details in today’s post! If you’re planning an upcoming trip or hope to get there one day, keep reading for my Nantucket travel guide!
Where is Nantucket and How to Get There:
Nantucket is an island right off the eastern peninsula of Massachusetts known as Cape Cod. There are two ways to get there: take a high-speed ferry (about an hour ride from Hyannis port) or fly directly into the very small airport (on a very small plane) directly onto the island. What they say is true y’all – sometimes the best places to visit are the ones that take a little longer to get to!
For my first IGTV video, I’m walking you guys through my skincare drawer to share the products I’m currently using + why I’m loving them so much! While I was thinking about doing this video, I also wanted to have a go-to post where all the products I discuss are linked for quick access. So below, I’m sharing my serums, exfoliators, masks, skincare tools and more. Head over to my Instagram (@apinchoflovely) (will go live around 5 pm CST on 7/8) and click the IGTV button in my bio to watch the full video!
It took me a while (SO many details to include in this post!), but I’m excited to finally share my first-timers guide to Scottsdale with you today! My visit to Scottsdale was nothing short of memorable – including both me trying to become accustom to dry heat and flying above the Earth in a hot air balloon! If you are thinking about visiting, I’m sharing all of our activities in today’s full blog post – make sure to click through to see all the photos too!
Important note: I would suggest visiting in spring or fall. Our trip was in May, and everyone kept telling us that it was actually cooler weather than usual. While we got lucky with the weather, a lot of the cactus blooms were already gone.

My time outdoors don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, so I’ve been searching up a storm for the perfect sunscreen. (And with summer upon us, you should too!) Sunscreen is the one summer beauty product I swear by for minimizing sun damage, slowing down the aging process, and preventing sunburn. But, they’re not all created equal. I have always struggled with finding an affordable sunscreen that offers maximum protection without compromising my complexion. It wasn’t until I came across Australian Gold Botanical that I realized an amazing and budget-friendly sunscreen existed.
The Botanical collection features mineral sunscreen lotions and natural sprays all for under $20! To learn more about this lineup, keep reading!
