Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Store walk-through

The #nsale is officially open to all card holders tomorrow morning and it really is Christmas in July. I had the chance to go to Nordstrom this week and take a look at what is on sale and try on some items. There is a 4 part series of videos that you can take a look at below. (the playlist I’ve linked has all of my #nsale videos so far) What are you most looking forward to in the sale? What types of videos or posts would you like to see me do? Happy shopping!!!

Christmas in July: Planning Now

Christmas in July: Planning Now

In a world of digital everything, receiving a hand written note or invite in my actual, physical mailbox makes me smile. I have even bought the cutest magnets to display these on my fridge (pretty sure my bf thinks we have enough at this moment) So, when it comes time to host a party or send out holiday cards, I still like the old fashioned kind of way. Maybe it’s because of my advertising days, but I just love creating cards and invites.

That brings me to the fact that it’s July… which means we are more than halfway through the year (OMG) & Christmas is a little over 5 months away. If you’re anything like me, the holidays are crazy busy and it always seems like you’re behind – whether it’s picking up gifts, decorating, RSVP’ing to parties or sending out your own holiday cards. So, this year, I am going to pre-order my cards now. In December, my July self is going to be thanking me… so I’m doing it for her!

Where am I going to be ordering these cards from? Basic Invite & here are the 3 reasons why:

  1. Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you to choose pretty much any color option with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the tiniest detail. How’s that for making sure your holiday card stands out from all of the others?!
  2. Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you to order an actual printed sample of your invitation so you can see exactly how it will look. Since I’ll be doing this in July, I’ll have plenty of time to place my final order for my Christmas cards.
  3. Address Capturing Service – If you haven’t had a wedding or baby recently, there’s a good chance you have close to zero of your friends and family’s addresses. Through Basic Invite, they offer an address capturing service that allows you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request your friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in your account and can then be selected during the design process. They also offer recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

Check out their site & you’ll see why it stands out from the others. Added bonus: Right now they are offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51

Your future self will thank you!

London Shopping Guide

I’ve noticed a trend lately when I travel – I am always seeking out where to shop. I like to find little boutiques, flagship locations, specialty shops & whatever else I can find. Recently I traveled to London on business & had minimal time to shop. I did, however, manage to find one day to explore the city & find some amazing stores. In case you’re short on time or just landed in London, click on this map and all of my recommendations will be seamlessly placed into your google maps.
