Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide + $1,000 Giveaway


nordstrom anniversary sale 2017Happy Monday friends! You may or may not know that the BIGGEST shopping event of the year is just around the corner. That’s right, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts this Thursday, July 13th for all Nordstrom Card holders (if you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you should get one for this reason alone! Apply here!), and is open to everyone Friday, July 21st, so mark your calendars! If you’re not familiar with the annual sale, you’re probably wondering…

Why should I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unlike ordinary sales because the mark downs are on brand new fall and winter items! You’ll find discounts of up to 40% off on the season’s newest boots, jackets, sweaters and more. As difficult as it may be to purchase boots in the heat of July, you’ll be thanking yourself in September because you won’t find prices on fall must-haves like this again until Black Friday. In case you get overwhelmed by all the goodness happening in the N Sale, I’ll be posting the BEST finds daily on my instagram and here on the blog, so stay tuned!! To make it easy to keep up with all my Nordstrom Sale posts, you can simply click here to see them all!

Click on the read more button below to get a sneak peek at what will be on sale this year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, the best finds I found in last year’s sale, and enter for a chance to WIN a $1,000 giftcard to Nordstrom just in time to shop the sale!

Confession: this Southern girl loves candles as much as the next, but my husband Cole is absolutely obsessed with them. When we were registering for our wedding, the number one thing he cared about was which candles we would register for (I’m serious!) All this is to say that my husband and I (but mostly Cole) are very particular about our candles, and after burning these beauties in our home for the last few weeks, we’d like to introduce you to our new favorite brand: Votivo Candles. Make your way to the bottom of this post to find out why and find out how you can win a candle set featuring the brand’s newest fragrance!

Firs things first, let’s talk about how you can enter to win an aromatic candle, reed and travel tin in Caipirinha Lime (their newest fragrance and an $84 value!) Tonight, August 16th, I’ll be posting a photo on my instagram where you’ll find the simple steps to enter the contest. I’ll be selecting three winners and you’ll have one week to enter the contest. The contest ends at midnight CST on Tuesday, August 23rd and the winner will be announced later that week. Good luck loves!

Now back to why we love these candles so much. We had the pleasure of trying several of their amazing scents – all of them are oh-so-yummy and have that amazing effect of spreading their beautiful aroma throughout your home! My personal favorite was their new scent, Caipirinha Lime. I expected your typical citrus-smelling scent, but it was so much more than that! Inspired by the flavors and rhythms of Rio, the city where the 2016 Olympics is currently being held, this scent is so flavorful and perfect parts sweet and zesty. The scent is created with hints of citrus and lime peel mixed with muddled sugar cane and mint sprigs (umm can I also have those ingredients in an adult beverage please?!) It’s hard to describe scents in words, but I can promise you this is one of those candle scents that anyone would enjoy. SO amazing!

A few of our other favorites – Youthful Yellow is a fresh, clean blend of vanilla, orange blossom and jasmine – perfect for any season in any room of your home. Our favorite for the fall/winter was the Red Currant – a warm blend of lush, earthy green notes, tart citrus, cassis, tropical fruit and musk. My personal favorite (besides the Caipirinha Lime) was the Pucker Up Pink, which we tried in a reed diffuser (which I’m a huge fan of). This is a bright, girlie scent that combines strawberries, gardenia, mimosa, and sandalwood – it’s the perfect gift for your best gal pal.
