Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Early Access and Tips!

nordstrom saleHELLLLOOOOO! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access starts today!!! It’s basically better than Christmas unless you’re a 5 year old. I’ve been shopping the sale since forever and I worked the sale for 3 years! Let me tell you that shopping it is much better than working it, but it taught me a few tips that I’m sharing below!

PLUS! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win $500 to Nordstrom HERE!!!

First off, let me introduce you to the sale!

Where: ANY Nordstrom store and of course online!

When: Early Access is July 14-21; Open to the public July 22 – August 7.

What: The Anniversary Sale is unlike any other Nordstrom sale. It’s only once a year! The coolest part is that all of the NEW fall styles come out seriously discounted! Then after the sale the prices return to the normal price. All the other sales are end of season sales.

How: Obviously public access is pretty self explanatory. But let me fill you in on Early Access. This is available to Nordstrom cardholders. It’s my favorite card because you get the best perks! First off, you get early access to the sale! But you also earn 2 points per dollar spent at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, and when you earn 2,000 points you get a $20 Nordstrom note to spend! Plus, the points add up super fast because they do double and triple and some times even ten point days! The Nordstrom credit card works like a normal card, but the debit card is a fantastic option, because you still earn the points, but it connects to your bank account like a debit card! That way you don’t have to open up another credit line! You can apply for one here!


  • The sale starts today, so today is the absolutely best day to make sure you get what you want! Ordering online starts at midnight! Some people like to try products on first, but I would order them ASAP so they are not sold out. If you have to exchange or return later then you can, but otherwise you might not get the item!
  • A lot of items sell out fast, but keep a look out because they may get returned! Make friends with one of the employees and have them put you on a list to be notified if it comes back in! They want the sale and you want the item so it’s a win win!
  • You can also make an appointment with a personal shopper. They’re going to be super familiar with all of the items, so if you are looking for something specific they should be able to find it for you, or show you what they have that might work for you! You can also let them know all of the items you want to try on from the catalog and they will have it all pulled for you before you even get there!
  • Shop the catalog early so you have an idea of what the items are and which ones you definitely want! But remember, not all of the items are featured in the catalog so you’re going to have to get online when they launch! See it here!
  • This is a FALL sale technically because all of the items are the up and coming styles. So think boots, sweaters, leather jackets, jeans, handbags etc. It may seem early to be buying these since it’s still hotter than hades outside, but they are SOOO discounted you’ll kick yourself if you don’t get them early. They also have great deals for beauty and fitness, which can be all year round items!
  • Stock up on basics! They’re so much cheaper that you can even get two of your favorite jeans or leggings!

Now for my favorite items!!!






Coats & Jackets:


Dresses and Skirts:




Happy Shopping! 
And remember, this is early access, but if you do not have a Nordstrom Card it will be open to everyone on the 22nd!

My Skincare Regimen with Rodan + Fields

Wild One Forever - Rodan +_ Fields SkincareI have been using the Rodan + Fields “Reverse” Regiman for the last few weeks and I am obsessed with it!

I went to their Solutions Tool on their website and was able to answer a few questions and it matched me with the best product system for me!

Here is a description of the program I use! I love it because I have never had super bad skin, but this just helps me look my best and I have definitely seen a noticeable difference!

Combat dullness, dark marks and keep occasional breakouts at bay with our REVERSE Redefined collection featuring our REVERSERegimen and REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator™. Our REVERSERegimen is clinically proven to visibly brighten unwanted pigmentation and even skin tone. We also recommend you add our REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator to your weekly skincare routine to accelerate the benefits of ourREVERSE Regimen. Used for five minutes once a week, this at-home tool is clinically proven to sweep away a week’s worth of dulling dead skin cells, leaving behind smoother, healthier-looking, luminous skin. The active ingredients in our REVERSE Regimen may cause dryness, especially in normal to dry skin. For additional moisturization, use ourREDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream as needed.

I’m a huge fan of the Overnight Cream. I love the way my face feels when I wake up. I turn 30 this weekend and my skin is doing pretty well, but I’m getting older and we all know what that means. I really like that this helps reverse damage and keeps my skin smooth.

Their PC(preferred customer) Perks program is awesome because you have complete control over your account and is flexible. All Preferred Customers get 10% off and free shipping.

They also have a 60 day money back guarantee, which is great because it gives people a chance to try the products out, and if they don’t like it they can return it for a full refund. And don’t worry, you don’t have to sell the products in order to use them 😉

Skincare Routine from Enza Essentials

Another one of my New Year’s goals for 2016 is to be really good about my skincare routine! I am not going to lie, I am one of those people who gets too lazy to even wash my face before bed sometimes. Not anymore! I am committing to a routine and I’m going to treat my skin better!

Enza Essentials sent me a whole set to help me achieve this. They are fantastic! I have a morning and nightly routine. Find the package that works best for your skincare needs or you can buy the products individually for your needs.

Here is a list of the products in my set and that work the best for me:


Saturation Cleanser: Rinse away your impurities with this cleanser designed for oily to dry skin! “Double Cleanse” with this! The first cleanse rids your face of surface pollutants and the second penetrates even deeper!

Saturation Toner: A hydrating toner that lifts away dull and discolored skin, leaving you with a beautiful glow. You can use this throughout the day if you are feeling dry or oily! Also, they recommend a travel size container to take with you in your purse!

Gycolic Serum: (THIS IS MY FAVORITE!!!) Exfoliate your skin with this serum. I can always feel this one working! Make sure you wait 30 seconds before the next product so it has time to set in.

Vitamin C Serum: (DEFINITELY A FAV!) Brighten and Hydrate your skin with this antioxidant-filled serum.

Advanced Protection SPF 30: The most important part of your anti-aging regimen! It’s your first line of defense against UVA and UBA rays from the sun!


Saturation Cleanser: Use this again at night! (Same as above!)

Pore Extraction Masque: ANOTHER FAVORITE! Only use this one about 2X a week and only in area prone to breakouts! This is a firming masque that controls oil production, minimizes the appearance of pores, and prevents future breakouts!

Fine Facial Polish: Slough off dead skin with this gentle masque. Only use 2X a week, alternating with the Pore Extraction Masque. Leave this one on for 15-20 minutes to get rid of impurities and brighten your skin!

Saturation Toner: (Same as above!)

Gycolic Serum: (Same as above!)

Vitamin C Serum: (Same as above!)

Saturation Herbal Creme: Let this creme revitalize and moisturize your skin overnight!

Spot Extractor: Use this as needed! Banish blemishes the moment they appear! This smoothes and heals inflammation while cleansing your skin to prevent breakouts!

You guys really need to try Enza out! Seriously so good! And there are WAY more products than the ones I use online. You can even get a custom set made just for you and your target problems! (This is definitely a better deal because it’s not as expensive as buying all the individual products and each it custom to you! You don’t get anything you don’t need!)
