How can I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Anniversary Sale is their most popular event, and the stores are usually pretty nuts, so it’s always recommended to shop online for the best selection. In addition to free shipping and free returns, Nordstrom also offers curbside pickup and returns, expedited shipping, same-day delivery (for selected areas) and international shipping.
THINGS I’M KEEPING AN EYE OUT FOR:
LUXE CANDLES: I’m a big fan of Diptyque candles. They aren’t cheap but if you’re a candle-lover like me, you’ll definitely appreciate having one lit in your home. I love the Baies scent probably the best, but they are all amazing. During the sale, Nordstrom usually includes a gift set in the sale which is either a nice way to keep your candle closet stocked, or to gift over the holidays. They also carry Voluspa candles, which I’ve been a fan of for years! They all smell incredible and sit at a slightly lower price point than Diptyque.
NÉCESSAIRE BODY CARE: my daily body routine includes using a Eucalyptus body wash, the body lotion and deodorant (also eucalyptus scented) from clean-brand Nécessaire. Even my husband is obsessed! The Body Wash + Body Lotion Set (available in full sizes) are included in this years sale. We love the brand because they offer natural beauty & wellness products that are free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oil, silicone and talc; also free of drying alcohols, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrances, coal tar and chemical screens. They are also cruelty-free and vegan.
CERAMIC, NON-TOXIC COOKWARE: I recently got a ceramic, non-stick, non-toxic, professional grade pan from One Place and it’s been a HUGE game changer in our kitchen. This one is from a different brand (Greenpan) but from what I’ve been hearing, is just as good. It features a diamond-infused, nontoxic, nonstick Thermolon Minerals coating that resists damage and won’t ever release harmful fumes or chemicals—even if you accidentally overheat or thermal shock your pan. The main difference between this one and the one I got, is that this one can also be used in the oven.
FALL OUTERWEAR: I browsed through all the sale items in women’s fashion and the few things that stuck out (and worth buying IMO) were in the fall outerwear category. For example, this denim jacket, this pink puffer or this neutral shacket option.
PRO-COLLAGEN CLEANSING BALM: I use this product every night as part of my nighttime skincare routine. It literally melts into the skin and helps easily remove makeup, dirt & impurities. It contains a mix of luxurious rose and mimosa waxes infused with nourishing elderberry, starflower and optime oils and is supercharged with the anti-aging algae padina pavonica. Skin is left glowing, cleansed, nourished and renewed.
