Unless you are very new around here, you know that I ADORE Sarah Flint shoes. They make the most comfortable (and stylish) pumps on the planet (that just so happen to be available in three heel heights) along with my favorite block-heel sandals for summer, the prettiest pointed-toe flats (with memory foam cushioning and arch support), and so many more favorites styles. Lately, I've been wearing this Grear lace-up sandal, which happens to be a favorite of Halle Berry and Cindy Crawford as well. WELL HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS: Right now, they're running a giveaway and one lucky winner will receive a free pair of their own! Yep, this gorgeous Grear sandal in the dreamiest saddle brown leather can be yours. All you need to do is click here to sign up for Sarah Flint emails! May the odds be ever in your favor!
How cute are these gingham masks from BaubleBar? They’re soft, breathable, and comfortable, with an adjustable ear loop for a perfect fit. The double layer design is function first, fashion second, and if you’re bored with your current mask options or if you find yourself washing the same masks over and over again, add a few more to the rotation and make things easy. These come in a set of five so you can wash each one after use and still have plenty clean, fresh masks ready to go. I also love these styles and these super cute animal print options.
As we work our way into fall (yes, I just used the F word), we’re going to see a resurgence of cute, comfortable loungewear for working from home—because yeah... that’s still gonna be a thing. I love the shape of these lounge pants with a gathered ankle, they’re incredibly affordable and come in four colors. What once might have been considered a Netflix-only pant is suddenly acceptable for every day of the week and time of day, as Zoom only requires us to be presentable from the waist-up.
I mean sure, you can make basic pancakes if you want to, but why on earth would you when THESE EXIST? These vegan banana bread pancakes are breakfast dessert. There, I said it. And I’ve eaten it. And you should, too. They’re made with ingredients you’re likely to already have at home, so don’t let the vegan-ness scare you. *Adds bananas to grocery list.*
Yes, I've been binging on extra large scrunchies lately. My gateway drug was this super scrunchie from Free People (which just got restocked in a million colors including my favorite blush), but LOOK AT THIS SCRUNCHIE. This voluminous, oversized accessory comes in four colors and if I don’t get it in my hands (and hair) immediately there will be consequences. There is something so chic about a gauzy fabric at this volume, and an elevated scrunchie is the ideal accessory for home.
Look, there’s a pandemic afoot, I will get my kicks where I can. Fancy Sprinkles 100% live up to their name. They’re some of the most brilliantly colored, fun sprinkles I’ve ever seen, perfect for decorating cakes and treats for special occasions or just like on a Tuesday—live a little. Their “prism powder” is also essentially just fairy dust for food and I’m into it. Scroll through their endless array of options here!
File this brown sugar saver under products that actually work. If you reserve your worst rage for the rock hard brick of brown sugar that forms in the bag you opened literally five minutes ago, drop one of these things in there and enjoy the prolonged freshness that you deserve. Yes, they actually work. Truly.
If you’ve been puzzling a lot during quarantine but you also don’t have endless amounts of flat surfaces in your home, this genius rolling device is your new best friend. It allows you to piece together your puzzle atop its surface, which then conveniently rolls up around an inflatable tube, preserving your puzzle while also allowing you to eat dinner in a civilized fashion.
IT IS TIME. Well, almost time. A select few with super duper status at Nordstrom are already able to shop the annual Anniversary Sale, but the rest of us (peasants) are able to trickle in more and more (key dates listed below!). I’ve currently got my eye on this red dress perfection, these leggings, this blanket, this brow kit, and my absolute favorite lash serum. Many more details and sale finds to follow obviously, but for now, the key information you need:
♦ August 10 (today!) marks early access for members with “Influencer” status, which is achieved by spending $2,000 in a calendar year;
♦ August 13 is early access for members with “Insider” status, achieved by spending $500 in a calendar year or by holding a Nordstrom credit card;
♦ And finally on August 19 the sale opens to the general public!
