Sale’s on at Shopbop: Take Up to 30% Off

Shopbop SaleSale Dates: Oct. 12–14, 2016 (11:59pm PST)

Sister shopaholics, I have wonderful news. Shopbop is having a sale! Don’t miss out on up to 30% in savings!

Shopbop is one of my favorite online destinations for retail therapy. They have the best selection of apparel, shoes, handbags, jewelry and other accessories. Just about any time I wear something I bought at Shopbop, people stop and ask where I got it.

Shopbop doesn’t have sales often, so I plan to take advantage of the discount. It’s a great time to stock up for winter (hello, winter coat and waterproof boots), get an early start on your holiday shopping or finally buy that splurge item you’ve been eyeing forever that was out of your budget. To get the discount, enter MAINEVENT16 at checkout.

I already shopped the sale and picked up these two pairs of Yosi Samra flats.

Yosi Samra Samara Suede Pom Flat in Rosewood

Yosi Samra Vienna Flat in Black

I have wide, flat feet and have the hardest time finding shoes that fit and don’t hurt. I love Yosi Samra flats because they go with everything, are flexible and super comfy, and they hold up so well. You can even fold them up and throw them in your bag, when necessary. Design-wise, they’ve got a similar look to cult-favorite Tieks flats, but at half the cost. And if you love the look of Tory Burch flats, but find them uncomfortable/too narrow/overpriced, Yosi Samra is just what you’ve been looking for.

Kestrel Cosmetic Bags: A Luxe Look For Less

kestrel makeupbag 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…)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016: Top 15 Beauty Picks!

nsaleIt’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.
