What Should Be On My Vanity: Nordstrom Anniversary Edition

| ,

Nordstrom anniversary sale beauty picks
It’s the most anticipated sale of the year – and for good reason! I’m a bit picky when it comes to beauty sets, but there are some of my all-time favorite products in duos or sets this year. Below are my recommendations:
1. Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel Duo – I am on either bottle 5 or 6 of this – I always have one in my collection. (read my review here)
2. Kate Somerville Exfolikate Treatment – This is quite a splurge, but it’s one of the best exfoliators out there. (read my review here)
3. Hourglass Palette – I LIVE for my Hourglass palette and love the Hourglass blushes and bronzer so this palette is a great mix of all three. (read my old reviews here)
4. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Beauty Palette – I never picked up the first Instant Look palette, so I don’t want to miss this one!
5. Sisley Black Rose Radiance Set – One of the best luxury face oils in my collection, and the mask is a brand cult classic. (read my reviews here)
6. Jo Malone Cologne Set – Meep! How cute are these mini bottles?! Such a great selection of fragrances.
7. Neulash Serum Duo – I am currently using this serum and am on month two. It is remarkable how much my lashes are growing! Will be reviewing soon but I highly recommend picking this up if it has been on your radar.
8. YSL Black Opium Set – I bought a roller ball of this earlier this year, and this set is really tempting. It’s a warm yet spicy sent that is ideal for fall.
9. SK-II Anti-Aging Set – If you have ever wanted to try SK-II, this is the set to splurge on! (read my old reviews here)
10. Diptyque Set – Mini Diptyque candles! Need I say more?!!
11. Clarins Double Serum Set – This is a great anti-aging serum for preventive and corrective care, and for (mostly) all skin types. I constantly recommend this to anyone looking for an all around great anti-aging serum. (read my review here)
12. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting Liquid Duo – I am never without a bottle of this in my collection. It is a necessity in helping treat and prevent blemishes. (read my review here)
There were quite a few fashion items that caught my eye this year. I picked up a few pieces already and am excited for them to arrive! I will be doing a haul video early next week with the items I receive so make sure you are subscribed to my channel. Here are my favorite items from clothing, shoes and accessories:
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1468622106583?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

What Should Be In My Closet: Splurge Edition

| , ,

I always love a good fashion wish list. The “if I won the lottery and could stock my closet with anything” sort of wish list. I rounded up a bunch of splurge items that I am loving and would love to have in my closet.
1. Zimmerman Eden Embroidered Dress – I have been lusting after Zimmerman pieces for more than a year now. This one has such stunning delicate detail that I can imagine myself wanting to wear it all the time. 
2. Alice & Olivia Off-the-Shoulder Dress – I’ve seen a ton of lower priced versions of this style dress, but the fitted shape and double ruffle sleeves makes this definitely splurge worthy.
3. Dior Metal Aviator Sunglasses – There are aviators and then there are these Dior aviators. The colored inset makes them much more interesting than a standard mirrored lens.
4. Prose & Poetry Tank Top – I can see this top worn with distressed jeans, cut-offs, slim white jeans or a chic pencil skirt. It is so versatile yet still a conversation piece.
5. Thierry Lasry Sunglasses – The shape of these is quite conventional, but the clear frames make them easy to wear with any and everything.
6. Chloe Faye Medium Shoulder Bag – This. Bag. THIS BAG! If there is one splurge item on this entire list that I want the most – it is this bag. The color, the shape, the detail. It’s perfection in my eyes.
7. Saint Laurent Sneakers – Leave it to Saint Laurent to make glitter stars on sneakers the chicest thing ever. 
8. Nanette Lepore Lace Top – I can see this top being the perfect option for someone wanting an alternative to a cocktail dress. This will high waisted pants and the most gorgeous stilettos is the way to do wedding guest attire without opting for a dress.
9. Gucci Block Heel Loafers – There is something so striking about these somewhat frumpy high heeled loafers. And the crackled metallic finish makes them even more interesting.
10. Ramy Brook Paris Dress – The pattern, the shape, the colors – this is THE dress for a summer night out. 
11. Self Portrait Strappy Lace Dress – Self Portrait is another brand I have been lusting after for the past year or more. The designs and details of every piece is like no other. This one seems perfect for year round events and I can see it being a closet staple even after 10 years.
