Bloomingdales Beauty Event

Bloomingdales is doing a huge beauty event right now.  Its called Beauty & the Beach and they’ve got a ton of gift with purchase items as well as a beach bag with any $125 women’s cosmetics or fragrance purchase.

 

Some of the 65 participating brands doing a gift are Clarins, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Sisley Paris and Estee Lauder.

The event runs until 7/7.  Right before the Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts ;-)

Who’s Getting Excited?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost HERE!!!!!!  I just received my catalog in the mail (though I’ve been searching online for weeks for any clues or leaks!).  I’m not crazy about anything I saw in the catalog, but I am sure I will still find a ton of great stuff instore just like I do every year!  The sale starts July 10th for cardholders and July 18th for the general public.

My favorite departments to hit are Point of View and BP for clothes.  I also always check out handbags, shoes, lingerie and active.  Each year I’ve been shopping the sale, I’ve noticed that Nordstrom will put some showpiece type items that sell out immediately as well as some basics that come back year over year.

For me, the basics that I always like picking up are Natori, Chantelle and Calvin Klein bras, Shimera camis and Zella leggings.  In fact, I personally think the Zella leggings are the best deal of the sale.  They are so well priced to begin with (especially when you compare the quality to other brands like Lululemon) they are just such a great deal on sale.

I picked up my first pair of AGL flats at the sale last year and oh my gosh… they are the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever worn.  From the very first wear, they were comfortable and have never caused me to have pain.  Even though they are pricey, are 100% worth it.

I have already cleared my schedule to shop Early Access which starts July 10th.  I can’t wait… can you?  What will you be shopping for? :)
