#SaleAlert: Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Sorry for the lack of posts this week but I've been baking for the big SJ Taco Fest & SJMADE Street Mart this coming Saturday! I took a much needed break for some retail therapy today because I just cannot miss a Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

I had to share some of my findings with you since i know it will be easier to navigate once you see it and you know what to expect. So here are a few things to check out!

Look for the red signs and tables in each department of Women's & Kids for the markdowns.

Tons of designer belts for as little as $12! I saw Nordstrom brands were the cheapest and even Michael Kors for around $15-25 is not bad at all. My favorites were Tory Burch & a few cute bow belts.

And purses galore. I seriously had to re-stack these purses like three times, ladies just kept scavenging through them and ruining my display! LOL! Anyway, check it out 33% off brands like Michael Kors, Kate Spade New York, Ted baker and Furla Candy Bags. Yum!

And then I went upstairs and found all these cute little trinket plates with sayings on them.
Can you guess which one is my favorite?

This would be perfect for the kitchen or dinning room, a Chalkboard Sign Cupcake Mad Libs for around $20! Love. I will have to come back for it, I didn't want to haul it around with me everywhere.

Lot's of cute home decor & gifts. I spy a Kate Spade Scrabble tray.

Ray Ban sunnies for 40% off, a lot to choose from and it about $86.

I saved the best for last. The shoe sale racks. Here's all the SJP pumps for 33% off! 

I spied a ton of the cute new Kendall & Kylie Jenner sandals for around $40 too. And of course my fave, Kate Spade New York. Just FYI if you don't see your size, always ask the salesman, they might have them in stock and can order them for you and it's free shipping as always. So sweet.

I lucked out and found my must-have whimsical sandal for the year. J'adore.

#NOTD: Connect the dots.

My latest DIY manicure was inspired by some images on Instagram and the fact that I had two shades of purple that I really wanted to wear next but couldn't decide on which one, so obviously I chose both! LOL! 

It was also my first time experimenting with the dotting tool from Butter London. You can buy the tool in The Backstage Basics set w/2 other nail art necessities, a striping and clean up brush. It's on sale at Nordy's for $18--> shop here.

I had the opportunity to actually meet the creator of this set, Katie Hughes the Color Ambassador for Butter London. She mentioned that another set of tools is in the works!

I used hues of purple for my mani. OPI's Pamplona Purple and Ulta's Uptown Girl. 

Taking the dreamer card on this one. Pinch me, I actually did a pretty good job for using the dotting tool for this first time, right? 

What's you favorite polish combo? Have you tried the Butter London tools?

Marshalls: Beach Please!

The temperature is rising in the Bay Area and it's getting hot in here! So you better have a bathing suit and beach day planned stat because Marshalls has a tons of goodies and designer bathing suits ready to make this happen.

Beach Please! ;)
A lot of cute beach house decor. Dedicate a room in your house for the beach bum vibe for the summer.

 Don't forget your cooler, this Cynthia Rowley roller cooler is sooo cute with those little crabs on it! 

And these glasses have little tiny fishes all over them, so if you are just staying indoors with the AC at the max at least you can pretend you are at the ocean.

And if you plan on taking the real plunge this week or weekend I spotted a bunch of new arrival designer swimsuits that are just too fun.

Fringe and teal two piece by Guess, $34.99!

Juicy Couture Triangle top and bottom with ruffles. Adorbs.

The Bandeau version. Juicy Couture is under $40!

My personal fave, the crochet two piece by Roxy for $29.99. It comes in white too.

Multi color two piece by Roxy for $24.99. This makes me think of Katy Perry, fun and flirty.

And a fantastic deal on this palm tree adorned pieces by Tildon for $16.99 a set!

And the Cynthia Rowley cover ups for the modest. It can take you from beach to cocktails.

Hope you are staying cool & stylish this week! Can you believe it's almost summer?!

What's in Store: Mom's Day Gifts (Marshalls,Target,Kohl's)

I was doing some browsing at my usual favorite stores, Marshall's, Target. Kohl's. A deadly combination of stores for my wallet, but I can't resist. I was looking for gifts for Mother's Day coming up this Sunday and found some really great prices and finds on my shopping trip and just had to share it with you all.


Nicole by O.P.I sets for under $5.99! Jewel of a Mom comes with a set of two full sized jewel tone polishes with bling nail art crystals. And the Mini's for mom have some gorgeous colors as well! Kind of want one for myself but I must focus. ;)

What lady doesn't want a beautiful Michael Kors handbag or wallet? I love this leather wristlet. There's also a lot of great MK handbags to choose from if you have a bigger budget.

Any boho or trend setting mom's out there? Fringtastic gift idea indeed.


These large fragrance warmers will have your mom hoot and hollering for some fragrance refills too!

And they are temporary price cuts for this week, so get there before the week is over!

Or maybe your mom has a love for interior decor! The flower panels are so pretty.

Show your mom you love her. :D

I'm thinking that the gold/white dot large jewelry box would be the perfect gift! And it reminds me of C.Wonder jewelry cases but you know way more affordable. P.s. they are $6.48 online! Add a statement making necklace or a watch (10% off watches w/Cartwheel Ap) for a surprise inside.

Flowers are always great! Pick up one of these lovely Anthropologie inspired floral Vases for only $14.39 to put those floral arrangements in.


I tried these Sole (Sense)Ability Slingback Espadrille's on, super comfy and soft! Get your mom all three, they are $28.99.

***Don't forget to take 20% off your purchase in-store w/printable coupon or online w/code YES2FAM. And you get Kohl's Cash $10 for every $50 spent from now through May 11.***

Cobalt kitten Tuxedo heels by Simply Vera Vera Wang are a simply delicious gift for a business mom who could use a pop of color. 

The Simply Vera Vera Wang Sidekick satchel's are in gorgeous shades of purple or nude. On sale for $39.99.

These Dana Buchman handbags made me do a double take. Designer inspired much? They look just like Michael Kors Jet Set bags! I own the real deal, but these are pretty spot on.

I took these pictures of the bags a week or two ago so the prices aren't the same as in the photo. It's still on sale though, for $39.99-$46.99 on sale. But hello 20% off coupon!

What are you getting your mom for Mother's Day? Will you be shopping at the deadly trio of stores? ;)

I also have been spying on some of the new arrivals. I found a look a for less.
This sandals are inspired by the Birkenstock, celebs everywhere are trying to make this trend happen.
