Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Shop my purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

All I can say is WOW the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is insane! This was my first year shopping the nsale and I did not know how competitive it was to shop these items. Items were selling out so fast that as soon as I put them in my cart and would go to check out they would be gone. So intense! I personally was against opening up a credit card just to shop a sale, so I waited for public access like I am sure most people did. So, the public access sale went live at 3:00am, another thing that I found complete crazy. Were people up shopping at 3:00am for clothes and shoes? I mean, I’m not going to lie it did cross my mind haha, but I got my beauty rest instead. I did start shopping the sale first thing Friday morning when I woke up and could not believe how many items were already sold out in my size. I had started a list of items throughout the week that I had my eye on and I swear at least half of them were sold out on the first day of public access. I did get a few of the items I had my eye on plus a few other things that I hadn’t seen until I really started shopping Friday morning. All together I found some awesome pieces that I can not wait to wear this fall. I am not usually one to wish for cold weather, but with these sweet deals and cute clothes I can’t wait for fall to get here!!

What is the first thing you notice when you meet someone? For me, it is always their SMILE! A big bright white smile goes a long way in today’s world. Honestly, I am crazy when it comes to my smile, I am always making sure my teeth look fantastic. Brushing multiple times per day, flossing, mouth-washing, you name it! That is why I was so excited to team up with Avistar and try out their Activated Charcoal Powder and Mouthwash. I had been wanting to try out these types of products for some time now but never found the right ones to purchase. I am so happy that I tried Avistar. Let me tell you guys, this stuff is good! I have been using the products for a few days now and my teeth look and feel amazing! So clean and bright, I just love it.

So, in order to use the powder, just wet your toothbrush, dab it in the powder and then brush your teeth for one to two minutes. Simple!! You can use toothpaste with it as well, I chose not to mix them together. I just brush my teeth after using the powder to get them extra clean before bed. Side note, this stuff is tough, I mean it is basically doing a deep clean on your teeth, so be careful brushing along your gum line. I brushed my gums a little too hard the first night and they were sore the next day. Other than that little mishap on my part this stuff is great. My teeth feel so clean and they look much brighter now. The mouthwash is pretty amazing too! It has this very minty flavor, which I totally love!! Makes my breathe taste and smell so good. It is so important to take great care of your teeth, using these products has been so beneficial to my smile. Definitely would recommend giving it a try. See if you love it as much as I do. Can’t be unhappy when you have a big bright smile on your face!

Last night I wore this outfit out to my 10 year class reunion! 10 years have gone by since I was in high school, so crazy to think about! It was nice to catch up with the people who did show up for the reunion. I was really surprised so many people didn’t come! Since having Beckham, Shane and I rarely go out so it was a nice excuse to get dressed up and go out with our best friends for the night. We really did have a great time all together. This black and white striped tank that I wore out is my new favorite! The stripes are split down the middle and go different ways, so fun!!  Express currently has 30% off this tank and all similar colors, might be going back for a few more! I love the fit and the cute little spaghetti straps. The v-neck is not too deep either, perfect tank to wear with a sweater or blazer to the office. I am wearing size XS, fits TTS. My distressed denim jeans are also on sale right now for 40% off from Express. They are my go to pair, I wear them at least once per week, even in the summer heat. I love the fit of these as well. Super comfy. One last thing I wanted to tell you guys is if you love cute earrings but hate spending a fortune on them then you have to check out Shein.com! They have the cutest earrings and they are all EXTREMELY CHEAP!!! The white fringe pair I’m wearing in the pics above were only $2!
