Early Access: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Selections

Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicked off last week, and we won’t even blame you if you’re sick of hearing about it already! In an effort to hold your interest (and hopefully be helpful!), we’ll keep this short, sweet, and to the point. Below, find a roundup of picks from the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale [Early Access: July 13-20. Public Access: July 21 – August 6].



I mean, how fun is this Split Sleeve Tee? The best part — it’s only $28!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t stop collecting candles. Especially when they are divine-smelling Diptyque Candles (they never go on sale… so seize the opportunity!)

Treat yourself to Tory Burch boots, pumps or sandals (while they last!)


Ok, so the CALPAK Marble Luggage isn’t part of the Anniversary Sale (unfortunately), but they are just too fun, I couldn’t resist including them in the marble roundup. I did go a bit crazy on the DKNY Marble Bath Accessories though. Can’t wait until they arrive and everything is matching and streamlined.

That’s it! If you’re wondering what authority I have to report on the most anticipated sale of the season, the answer is… I’m really no expert. Just practical person who loves a highly anticipated sale.

P.S. Pajamas! I forgot the PJs! These Moonlight Pajamas by Nordstrom Lingerie are insanely comfortable. They come in your choice of 5 colors and there’s a short version, too.

Thanks for reading! Let us know what else you find in the comments below or on Instagram, @thejcrgirls.

Trend to Try: Velvet

As soon as my hunt for a good deal on a flight home begins, so does the search for the perfect Christmas day outfit. This year, I have not yet had any luck with the former, but the latter was solved quite easily when I began seeing velvet pieces everywhere (LOFT has an amazing selection and with 40% of EVERYTHING right now, you can’t pass up trying this trend out!).

To shop our favorite velvet pieces just click the plus sign icon in the images!

Let’s all agree that pink velvet shoes need to become a staple item in all of our closets…

Ready or not, it’s that time of year again, folks! To make things a little less stressful, we’ve rounded up a series of gifts for your consideration. First up, Gifts for Women – Under $50.

Some faves: Iridescent Jar Candle / Marbled Glass Candle / Burnished Metal (with soapstone lids!) and these darling Succulent Candles.

2. Glossier gifts are sure to please, and they don’t break the bank!

Pair the Glossier Terry Headband with one of their cleansing masks – the detoxifying Mega Greens Galaxy Pack or Mousturizing Moon Mask. I’d also highly recommend Generation G Matte Lipstick (my favorite shades are Jam and Zip) and ‘The Supers’ concentrated serums. Pick up Super Bounce for softer skin and Super Glow, for an even skin tone. Add Priming Moisturizer before adding makeup! Save 20% on your first Glossier purchase by shopping with this link.

3. Save big with seasonal makeup kits.

5. Turkish Towels – Love these multi-purpose towels. Great for laying out on the beach or as a swimsuit coverup. Also makes a great shawl / oversized scarf. Can also be used as a traditional hand or body towel or fun home decor accent. The Linum Home Textiles line at Nordstrom is a personal favorite.

What are your go-to “Under $50” gifts to give?

My Makeup Essentials

Nailing down a beauty routine involves a lot of trial and error. You not only have to find what works for your skin, you also have to find products that help you achieve the look you are going for. Finding a foundation that gave me both coverage and a bit of a glow for example seemed like almost an impossible task. I know I love seeing what other people have in their makeup lineup so I wanted to share mine with you.

I used to always have the “save” mindset when it came to makeup. I never wanted to spend too much, but honestly, I probably spent MORE trying out product after product because they just weren’t right. So many of these items might seem like more of an investment up front, but if you get what you’re looking for with the first shot it’s worth it. Plus, who doesn’t love those Sephora Beauty Insider points?!

What beauty products do you swear by? In the next few weeks I’ll be sharing my skincare routine as well so stay tuned!

Nordstrom Bonus Points Events – Triple Points March 22-26!

It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Triple Points Event will take place March 22-26 across Nordstrom, Nordstrom.com, Nordstrom Rack, nordstromrack.com and HauteLook.

No time like the present to purchase at least one item on your wishlist! Here’s mine:
Nordstrom-Triple-Points-2

Soludos Espadrille Slip-On / Bobbi Brown Shimmer Gloss / RayBan Classic Wayfarer Polarized Sunglasses / Packable Straw HatMarc by Marc Jacobs New Q Natasha Crossbody Bag in Classic Black / Zoey Pleat A-line Skirt / Michael Kors Chronograph Bradshaw Bracelet Watch / Limited Edition NARS Blush Duo / Kate Spade New York Peephole One-Piece Swimsuit (also love it in stripes!)

If it’s Fyre Boots you’re after, I’d highly recommend their riding boot styles and weatherproof spray. Frye-Boots-Nordstrom

If you’ve never owned a pair of Frye Boots, be warned, they require a bit of breaking in. In the end, so worth it!

I’m tempted by Kiehl’s Skincare Products…although I should only pick one.
Kiehls-at-Nordstrom-Concentrate Do you have a favorite among Midnight Recovery ConcentrateDermatologist Solutions™’ Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate, and ‘Clearly Corrective™’ Dark Spot Solution?

If you’re looking for a ‘little’ something, the Kate Spade Slim Portable Charger is a great option. Or, this phone Kate Spade Ice Cream iPhone Case.

Last but not least, I’m really feeling these beachy blue vibes…
