It’s official. The Black Friday Shopbop sale is here – 2 days in advance! This sale is one of my favorites of the holiday season, with 20-30% off all full-priced merch (depending on how much you spend), plus 100s of additional items that are already deeply discounted. And the cherry on top? You receive that 20-30% discount on all sale items too. Woohoo!
Moisturizing is a crucial step in any skincare routine, particularly in the fall & winter. (For simplicity’s sake, I am lumping together moisturizers and face oils for this post.) Moisturizers hydrate and plump skin for a more youthful appearance, have anti-aging benefits, can reduce redness and balance skin tone. By their nature, they also prevent your skin from feeling tight and developing dry patches during the harsh winter months, which can make it practically impossible to apply makeup. (Seriously – have you ever tried to apply makeup over a dry patch? It flakes off, makes everything look worse and, in short, is beyond frustrating!) Another benefit? They seal in all the goodness from your serums and eye creams.
With fall creeping up on us (I know – crazy!), I must admit that I am a teensy bit excited to trade in my seersucker for something cozier. (Think cashmere sweaters, smart blazers, silk blouses and tartan everything!) Enter the phenomenal Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, a pre-fall sale that offers gorgeous cool weather pieces at a steep discount. It is the perfect excuse to get a head start on your fall wardrobe. But, like Cinderella, there is a clock on it. This is the last weekend to shop the sale before everything reverts to full price. (Eek!)
