Clothing-wise I ordered the Rails Collins Jacket in Bone (30% off sitewide with code BFCM30). I have one in a green color and love it so decided to buy a second in a different color. I splurged on the new APL Shearling Slides (not on sale, but I could not resist!). They are having a Cyber Monday promo (excludes the slides) but if you buy 2 you get 1 pair free. I ordered a Duffle Bag from Lululemon for Andrew. I have a few other things on my radar that are marked down at some really good prices but haven’t ordered them quite yet from Alo Yoga.
The last thing I want to put on your radar is that Tory Burch is having a pretty good sale on their website. My Perry Bombe Bag is 30% off in most colors. The black seems to be the one that is excluded, but if you had your eye on other colors you can save during their Cyber event with code THANKS. I use this all the time and even have my eye on the Cloud Blue or New Cream. You can see my Perry Bombe Bag review here in case you are curious!
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a wonderful start to the holiday season. Black Friday and Cyber Week deals have already started! I’m rounding up all the Best Black Friday Sales and Deals I have on my radar. Many are already live right now and a few will be starting on Friday (dates noted below). Check back later this week because I’ll be able to share more info on some special launches this Friday!
Hope you find some great deals! I’ve already shopped from Anastasia Beverly Hills, La Mer and The Daily Edited. I ordered one of the Our Place Always Pans although it won’t ship until end of next month (but I’m still excited). I have my eye on some things for the home too!
The Sephora Holiday Savings Event starts on Friday 10/30 for Rouge Members! I’m rounding up the best makeup to splurge on for the sale with my absolute favorites by category. Beauty Insiders can save on all purchases according to tier. The dates and details are as follows, use code HOLIDAYFUN (can use code multiple times in store and online):
Rouge First Access, save 20% off 10/30 through 11/9
VIB Members, save 15% off 11/3 through 11/9
Insiders, save 10% off 11/5 through 11/9
There are some limits so check out their disclaimer page once the sale goes live. I have so many beauty favorites from Sephora, many are not mentioned in this post – but if you have any questions let me know in the comments. To try and help provide a more edited shopping guide I picked my Top 5 per category (a couple of the categories have a few more than 5). I will have a separate post up for Skin/Hair/Body tomorrow!
Eyeshadows are an area that are nearly impossible for me to narrow down to my top 5! I feel like palettes are so personal to one’s taste and preference for shimmer vs matte, warm vs cool, powder vs cream. I picked out my favorite cream singles and then also have a list of my favorite brands for powder palettes.
Charlotte Tilbury also makes beautiful eyeshadow palettes that are easy to wear and versatile
Most-Used Eyeshadows – Charlotte Tilbury La Bella Sofia, Natasha Denona Nude, Tom Ford Mink Mirage or Natasha Denona Biba, Hourglass Scattered Light in Blaze, Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick in Rosegold
That wraps up my ultimate makeup shopping guide! I hope you find this helpful 🙂 I tried to link all the swatches and reviews I could where applicable. I’ll be sharing my skincare recommendations tomorrow and check back because I’ll be hosting a giveaway in that post.
To recap Sephora Sale details are as follows, use code HOLIDAYFUN (can use code multiple times in store and online):
Rouge First Access, save 20% off 10/30 through 11/9
It’s that time of year again! I’m sharing my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Shopping Guide since Early Access starts August 4th. This year’s they’ve included a preview online, kinda like a digital catalog. Each day they’re adding new things and I expect the full list of sale items to be live tomorrow. I went through all the different categories to bookmark some things for my wishlist and items I think are great deals. My all time favorite thing of all time the Barefoot Dreams Cozy Throw is part of the sale so if you’ve had a blanket or pillow on your wishlist now is a great time to get one!
I’ll have a full haul post as soon as I’m able to post one! In the meantime I’ve included the highlights by category. They’ve made it really easy to sort and filter multiple ways. I also recommend adding things to your account wishlist so it’s easy to keep things bookmarked in one place.
Dates and Details
Here are the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Details for shopping dates. Early Access starts for cardholders depending on what tier you are for points. I’m sure most of you are familiar with the sale but in case you’re new they have tons of brands marked down. Nordstrom has a mix of current brands marked down, new items created just for the sale, value sizes and sets and exclusives.
The Nordstrom Sale Beauty Exclusives are the things I look forward to the most each year. They have great value sizes to save on shampoos, hair styling products, skin care sets etc. Make sure you check their Gift With Purchase page as they update them frequently throughout the sale! A few things on my radar below.
Two things I almost always buy every year are the Oribe Set and MAC lip sets each year because they’re a great value. One of my favorite makeup mirrors the Riki Skinny Lighted Mirror is part of the sale this year in a pretty Rose Gold Color. I love that they have an Olaplex Bond Maintenance Trio for $84 ($126 value). There are a good amount of styling tools like brushes, hair dryers, curling irons and flat irons available. As a huge fan of the NARS Oil Infused Lip Tints I’m for sure buying the Mini Duo with new shades Solstice and Beausoleil.

Home and Accessories
If I could recommend you only buy one thing from the sale it would be any Barefoot Dreams blanket. I love them so much! They’re super soft and snuggly. I sleep with one every night. Nordstrom has some super cute sunglasses every year and I have my eye on the options from Tom Ford.
A few things on my radar linked below including some home throws, designer sunglasses, marble coasters and more:
Staples and Basics: Tops
There are so many cute tops and tees this year! Lots of nice everyday staples from Splendid, L’Agence, Rails, Rag and Bone and more.
Cute styles for camisoles, tanks, tees and blouses I’ve bookmarked all linked in the widget below:
Athleisure, Denim, Cute Shoes
Most of my wishlist is in the athleisure department. I’m thrilled to see items from Sweaty Betty this year (adding this Mesh Hoodie to my try-on list). I also find Zella to be pretty good for comfortable sports bras and leggings. The denim selection is always great each year. I’m surprised there weren’t quite as many options from Paige this year but there are lots of other brands to choose from including Rag and Bone, Blank NYC, Mother and AG to name a few. I don’t have much on my wishlist for shoes but think these Tory Burch sneakers are pretty cute!
A few things I have on my radar to try on in store this week for workout clothes and denim:
That wraps up my preview and shopping guide for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020! I am hoping they will be adding more items online for beauty like we’ve seen in past years.
