Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Beauty Must-Haves

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you are fully aware the Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access Sale is in full swing! If you’re just tuning in this week – don’t miss my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale top picks for both men and women! From outerwear to handbags to shoes, I’ve rounded up the best of the best from this year’s sale. Today I thought it’d be fun to share my beauty exclusive must-haves. If you haven’t tried Viktor and Rolf’s flower bomb scent yet – this beauty exclusive is a serious steal. I’ve already bought this beauty blender package (normally it’s $20 dollars for 1!) and this Anastasia’s brow set (I use soft brown). One of my girlfriends told me about this eye mask and I’ve been dying to try it ever since. I also think this Giorgio Armani cover up makeup duo is a steal. Shop  more of my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty exclusives below!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Men’s Top Picks

Good morning!! And Happy Friday. So excited it’s finally the weekend! In case you missed it yesterday, I shared my top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Since many of my guy friends follow my blog, I thought it was only fair to share my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Men’s Top Picks, too! From outerwear to shoes and accessories, I’ve rounded up the best of the best when it comes to what guys should pick up for themselves this year.

I personally think the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is great for guys when it comes to outerwear, shoes and denim. Easy items that guys don’t have to try on if you know their size. I love this khaki rain jacket for fall, this quilted navy jacket (it’s online only), or this Northface jacket for casual weekendwear (only $99 dollars!). You can shop all of my top picks above and below. Have a great weekend!! Xo. Lauren

Summer In Central Park

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is hang out in Central Park. Quite honestly, I don’t do it enough! It’s hard to make it up town with how much travel happens during the summer. If you live in New York or are planning a trip here soon, I obviously recommend making a pit stop in Central Park.

One of my favorite spots to enter is at the 72nd and 5th Avenue entrance. If you take a right down the first path (down the stairs) there is a pond located right by the conservatory. It’s one of my favorite locations in the park as little kids can play with remote control sail boats! It’s so freaking scenic. Oh, and if you’ve ever seen the movie 27 dresses, several scenes were filmed right by this pond and the Boat House!

Whenever I make a trip uptown, I love bringing a market tote that holds all of my necessities for a day in the park – a blanket, wine, cheese, camera, etc. I picked up this market bag at a vintage shop in Connecticut two summers ago for $10 dollars. It’s been one of my favorite finds to-date (I’ve listed a few similar options for you guys below!).

I always try to wear outfits during the summer that are casual but put together. This Brooks Brothers embroidered tank is a current favorite. The blue and white stripes paired with the orange embroidery makes it easy to love. Plus it’s marked down to $84 dollars! Yes, please. Other go-to park necessities: comfortable jeans, sneakers (I’m already on my second pair of these), and sunnies. I just picked up these Karen Walker Retro Sunglasses last week and pretty sure I’ll be wearing them on repeat the rest of summer. Hope you guys have some fun plans lined up for the weekend! Xo.
