Happy Thanksgiving to you! Grateful for so many things even though this year has been a challenge. Particularly grateful to each and every one of you who continue to read my blog, follow me on social, send me the sweetest messages and thankful for your support. I still pinch myself every now and then. Some days I cannot believe that I am able to do what I love (this blog). Happy to be able to connect with beauty junkies like myself around the world.

I’ve rounded up what I feel are the Best Black Friday Sales to shop this year. I went through my full list and edited it down to the sales I think are worth exploring.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Wishlist + Recommendations

July 9, 2021

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Wishlist Beauty Exclusives

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 is starting very soon and I have my initial wish list and recommendations roundup for you today! All the items for sale in Home, Women, Men, Activewear, Beauty Exclusives, Kids are up online for preview already. You can start previewing items online by category and start saving items to an online wishlist.

Nordstrom Card Holders have early access depending on tier. Key Dates for access are as follows:

  • Icon Early Access July 12 – 27
  • Ambassador Early Access July 14 – 27
  • Influencer Early Access July 16 – 27
  • Open to Everyone July 28 – August 8

I’ve gone through the Beauty Exclusives and Home Section and have split all the things on my radar by category. There’s a lot to sort through! I found it helpful to browse by category filter Makeup, Skincare, Fragrance, etc. to help me find things by interest and price.

I’m still in the process of narrowing down my shopping list! A lot will probably change depending on what I see in person in store next week. A number of you have asked me to flag things I find interesting or new/exclusive so I hope this helps!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Beauty Exclusives

One / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve / thirteen / fourteen / fifteen / sixteen / seventeen

This area is where most of my wishlist items are with the limited-edition colors, palettes and sets. I always buy the neutral MAC Lip Sets each year because they make the best colors. This year Tom Ford Beauty has two eyeshadow palette sets and I’m nearly certain I’m buying both the Cognac Rose Eye Color Quad Set and Coquette Eye Set.

Charlotte Tilbury has a new Instant Look Palette called Sunset Dreamscape which sounds pretty! Also NARS has an interesting Pleasure Trip Cheek Palette (Wanderlust, Lucky Star, Wild at Heart) and an Afterglow Lip Shine Trio.

I’m personally well stocked on staples from Laura Mercier, MAC and Bobbi Brown – but if you’ve been eyeing anything, they have some good value sets which makes it a nice time to try some luxury beauty!




Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Beauty Exclusives Hair Care and Tools

One / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve

Three things I highly recommend in this category are the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray + Gold Lust Dry Shampoo Set ($64 on sale, normally a $96 value separately), Riki Skinny 10x Lighted Mirror (on sale for $130, normally $210), and the Olaplex Bond Maintenance Trio (on sale for $84, normally $126).

For mirrors I own both the Riki and Simplehuman and I love both. To apply makeup I usually use the Riki because it’s easier to see the entire face while the Simplehuman one is magnified and better to see detail areas. My Favorite Makeup Mirrors reviewed in this blog post for more info/details.




Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Beauty Exclusives Skincare

One / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve

Skincare value sets are always plentiful during the sale! I’m buying the Kopari Coconut Melt Duo for myself for sure 🙂 If you’re looking to splurge on La Mer or Sisley they often have good value sets where you can get a little more for your $$$. I love the Sisley Black Rose Infusion Cream for a lightweight water cream. They have a pretty good set this year!

If you don’t own a Nuface Device they have some good sets on sale! The NuFace White Trinity Kit is on sale for $199 (normally $339) although if it’s not in your budget right now I will say they usually have good sales and sets available during the holiday season too (so no need to rush).




Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Beauty Exclusives Fragrance

One / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve

I love the Diptyque and Jo Malone options this year! They have good variations this round! I love the Do Son Perfume + Hair Mist Duo (looks so cute). Andrew’s favorite hand soap from Le Labo Hinoki is available in a Jumbo Size.

Tom Ford has a Travel Size Soleil Fragrance Atomizer with 3 different scents in Soleil Blanc, Soleil Neige and Soleil Brulant. I think this is going to be one I pick up since I haven’t tried two of them and think it would be nice to have them in travel size format.




Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Home Exclusives Sale

One / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve / thirteen / fourteen

The one brand I get the most excited about every sale is Barefoot Dreams! I live in these blankets. I have one wrapped around me right now as I’m typing out this post. They have such good sales this time of year and I stock up for Christmas gifts. This year they’ve added a number of new patterns and colors which look really fun!

Over the winter we had some pretty cold weather here and Lucy finally got a lot of use out of her Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Dog Sweater (some of you might remember seeing it on stories). She’s a Jack Russell Terrier about 18-20 pounds. They recommend a Medium for her, but when I bought hers there was only Large Available. It works for her with room to spare, but she’s probably more of a Medium. They have a cute Leopard Pattern Dog Sweater and a Solid Version too.


I’ll have a haul post with swatches in the upcoming days after I’ve shopped the sale!

I’m hosting a few giveaways during the sale (not sponsored or affiliated). This first one I’m giving away three $100 eGift Cards to Nordstrom. Three different people will each win $100. All you have to do to enter is complete at least 3 of the steps in the widget below. The more steps you complete the more entries you receive. Giveaway will run July 9, 2021 through July 14, 2021 11:59 PM EST. I’ll select three winners at random and contact them via email them 1 day after the giveaway ends. Winners must respond within 3 days or another winner will be selected in their place. Open internationally but you must be 18 years+ to enter!

Cyber Monday Haul Picks + Sales On My Radar 2020

November 30, 2020

Cyber Monday 2020 Haul Picks

Happy Monday! I’m doing something a little different this year for Cyber Monday and sharing what I hauled plus a few things on my radar.

1 Alabaster Candle // 2 Byredo Candle // 3 Tom Ford Illuminator // 4 Perfume // 5 Jacket // 6 Mini Cream Bag // 7 Clear Makeup Bag // 8 Hair Mask // 9 Travel Perfume Set // 10 Eyeshadow Vault Set // 11 Clear Travel Case // 12 Mugs // 13 Mini Cocotte // 14 Pan // 15 Hand Cream // 16 Lip Volumizer // 17 APL Slides // 18 Duffle Bag // 19 Hoodie // 20 Grey Hoodie // 21 Shorts // 22 Leggings

Bloomingdale’s is having a few promos. They’re doing 15% off beauty $100 in beauty and also up to 30% off marked items. I ordered the Cire Trudon Alabaster Candle in Ernesto and a couple Byredo Candles. Saks is also doing a sale on beauty with 15% off beauty using code CBTY20SF. I ordered the Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 along with the Discovery Set to try some other scents.

La Mer had some really good Gift With Purchases going on over the weekend! I stocked up on the Hand Treatment and Lip Volumizer (both also available in this Rejuvenating Hydration Collection set with a full size lip + mini hand). They have another good one up today for a 4 piece sample set with $200 purchase and a deluxe size product added with $300.

Also in beauty I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eye Vault Set. This one isn’t on sale but was relaunched for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. I stocked up on my favorite hair mask Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair (20% off Cyber Monday sale with code HOLIDAY).

The Daily Edited is one of my favorite makeup bag brands and they’re doing 20% off sitewide! I bought a few of the newer colors in the Clear Makeup Bag and Clear Travel Case, this Peach Pink color looks so pretty! Also love the new Baby Blue color.

For the home I ordered one of the Our Place pans on sale with code SUPERSALE. From Le Creuset they had some things I wanted that weren’t on sale but I ordered some of the Mugs, Ramekins and Mini Cocottes for the home.

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!


Stay tuned for more posts later today (yes more blog posts going live soon!). I will have a full EM Cosmetics roundup (they’re having a sale) and a look at the Chanel Good to Glow Makeup Set.

Best Makeup To Splurge On For the Sephora Holiday Savings Event

October 29, 2020

Best Makeup Sephora Sale | The Beauty Look Book

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!

Best Makeup at Sephora | The Beauty Look Book



Powder / Setting Products

Blush/Bronzer /Highlighter

Beauty Tools


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.

Liner / Mascara

Lipstick + Gloss

Lip Liners / Tinted Balms


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
  • VIB Members, save 15% off 11/3 through 11/9
  • Insiders, save 10% off 11/5 through 11/9

Happy Shopping!
