I'm Christine Andrew, I currently live in Salt Lake City with my husband Cody and our three kids Mara, Wes, and Beckam. I started this online diary as a way to share my favorite sales, buys and fashion finds. Now I share everything from family and travel to fashion, beauty, and home decor.
Happy Friday! The Anniversary Sale is open to the public today at 12:30 EST so I wanted to share some of my must-buy beauty products – both those tried and true products and those that are new to me that are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’m heading to the Beauty Bash in store tomorrow (and open to the public! Just head to your local Nordstrom tomorrow for the event!) and can’t wait to try new products, but for now I wanted to share one of my favorite beauty looks I’ve worn in a while and how to recreate it with products from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!:
How pretty are these lip colors! They were one of my first beauty purchases from the Anniversary Sale and they are just as pretty in person as they are online – love that it comes in both a lipstick and a gloss!
Last night I finally sat down and started ordering stuff for the baby and it started to sink it! My due date was moved up a few weeks, so I feel like I need to get everything settled and in order as soon as possible so I’m not having to worry about the details once the baby comes (especially if he makes an early debut!)
I shared a few of my tried & true products from my first pregnancy along with some new products I’m excited to try in this post, but today I wanted to share some staple items for your baby registry and right now everything is under $25!
BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS! We just lost a ton of our baby/kid books when our basement flooded – they were all contaminated so we had to throw them out and even though insurance reimbursed us, it’s a little daunting to begin recollecting baby and kids books, but these are a few of our favorites:
10. WOODEN SHAPE MAGNET SET – This set comes with wooden shapes and magnets – another great development tool once they hit that age.
BLANKETS & SWADDLES: These are as much a comfort for babies as it is a necessity for mom! Here are my top picks for the baby registry.
11. PATTERNED PLUSH THROW– Beckam got a fleece blanket when he was a baby and he would not part with it for years! He could not leave the house without it. It’s crazy how attached kids can get to a blanket – love this neutral, unisex option on sale under $10.
13. MUSLIN BLANKET SET – Mom tip: can never have too many muslin blankets. This is a great item to add to the registry.
Walmart has endless baby products so it’s a great destination to use for your baby registry, not only for affordable finds like these staples under $25, but also for the big ticket items. (Like the Snoo! I’ve heard amazing things!) Below are a few more great pieces at multiple price points that would be perfect for your baby registry.
Plaid is huge this season, and I especially love bringing the pattern into outerwear pieces. This plaid overcoat and cape are great layering options and under $100. I also love the Natori bras – they are super comfortable and Nordstrom told me they can actually transition them to a nursing bra. Such a good tip to know for you fellow mamas to be out there! Also obsessed with the cut of these Levi’s – I couldn’t believe they were under $100 and how cute are these double hoop earrings!
Below are more great sale items under $100 that are still in stock and check out more of my outfits under $100 here.
Pieces are selling out like crazy at the Nordstrom Sale, so I wanted to put together some of my favorites under $100 that you guys requested in stories with outfits that still HAVE IN STOCK ITEMS! Keep scrolling to see some of my favorites, starting at under $15!
These pants are soooo stretchy and comfy – they are $38 and fit for the bump which is a shocker and of course no bump too! They mix and match with so man things! Pattern play is a big thing this season!
Today marks the first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for card members! It’s open to the public next Friday, but now is definitely the time to buy before pieces sell out, so if you haven’t already, sign up for a Nordstrom card here!
One of the biggest requests in my poll about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was his and hers style, so I wanted to kick off the sale with some of my favorites for both him and her! Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite looks with sizing and pricing information on each of my pieces and why I love them. Also a lot of these looks are dresses because I can’t fit in a lot of jeans right now #pregnancyproblems! But I am still going to do a round up of my favorite denim in another post!
