I love Kestrel Cosmetic Bags. I discovered them last fall at my local Nordstrom Rack store. There are a bunch of different styles and fabrics, but what I love the most is that they are very high quality at a very low price point. When I first saw them in store, I was instantly drawn to the display. The bargain shopper that I am, I immediately looked at the price tag and did a double take. I expected it to say something like $30, marked down from $50+. So imagine my shock when the price tag said $10. I quickly picked up another bag and checked that price tag to see if a mistake had been made.
Nope…no mistake. Although the design, fabrication and hardware are luxe, Kestrel bags only look like you broke the bank. So I did what any expert shopper would do: I loaded up my cart with variety of styles for holiday gift-giving. Every December, I run into the same problem – I have a ton of friends, co-workers and kids’ teachers to thank, and I can only afford presents that cost about $10 each. But most gifts under $10 are utter crap and you’d rather give nothing at all than give someone a $10 piece of junk. Kestrel bags are the perfect solution to this Christmastime conundrum. (more…)
It’s the most wonderful time of the year for beauty lovers – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Because it’s rare to find deep discounts on the hottest beauty products and tools, the #NSale is a must-shop event. This year, there are 270+ beauty exclusives that need good homes. But being the thoughtful beauty girl that I am, I whittled down that list and am sharing my top 15 picks.
I picked up the Foreo Luna device (I’m curious to see how it compares to Clarisonic) and Mario Badescu cleanser online last week. And yesterday, I visited my local store and ended up buying the Clinique Moisturizing Gel duo.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale runs from July 22-Aug. 7, but Nordstrom Cardholders get early access. Need another credit card like you need a hole in the head? Sign up for a Nordstrom debit card, which offers the same benefits as the Nordstrom retail card, but your purchases are drawn directly from your personal bank account. Apply today to get your #NSale shop on. Don’t wait too late…products are flying off real and virtual shelves, and stock is not guaranteed.
