It’s almost time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Who’s ready to shop? We are one week away from shopping day (for early access shoppers) and I am getting so excited! I thought today would be the perfect day to go ahead and post my first look favorites to make things easier for you to shop. You can go ahead and click on the items you know you want and add them to your wishlist to shop quickly and easily. I’ve already been adding things to my personal wish list! Here are my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale favorites:
It is almost time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 which is by far my favorite sale of the year! I have always saved and planned ahead for this sale in order to snag some of my favorite brands at a discounted price and stock up on all of my favorite fall basics. This year, the sale will be slightly different than previous years, however you will still be able to find designer brands on sale and save on your favorite fall finds! I will be sharing try ons and all of my picks from the sale on my blog, Instagram (and Insta Stories) and my newsletter, so be sure to follow along for all the deals!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Every year, Nordstrom puts their brand new fall and winter items on major sale (usually around 40% off) for a limited time before they go back up in price for the season. Everything sells out so fast, so be sure to add everything to your cart and check out very quickly. That is key.
When Does the Sale Start?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 opens to the public August 19th – August 30th! Prices go back up on August 31st. You can shop the sale early if you have been approved for a Nordstrom Card. If you are approved to shop the sale, Early Access begins August 13th – August 18th! That means you get to shop the sale a whole week early! I highly recommend getting a Nordstrom Card (apply HERE) in order to shop the sale during Early Access because things sell out so quickly. Bonus: If you sign up and get approved for a card then make a purchase you will receive a $60 note (credit) to shop the #NSALE!
Preview the Sale!
This year Nordstrom is putting all of the Anniversary sale items on their website for you to preview them instead of doing a catalogue! This will allow you to add the items you want to your wish list and allow you to check out much faster the day you can shop the sale! I highly recommend doing this to save time and help ensure you get the items you want. The preview will be live THIS FRIDAY July 24th!
Why should I shop this sale?
This is the only sale where they where everything is 100% brand new inventory that you can purchase before the season even begins at a discounted price. You can also score brand names and designer labels on SALE! Think: brand new Tory Burch fall items up to 40% off! You will be able to score the season’s hottest jeans, boots, jackets and more all at a discounted price. Trust me, if there is ever a sale to shop, this is the one.
How should I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
I will be doing my personal shopping on Nordstrom.com this year, however, if you live near a store, you can do that as well. I have shopped both in store and online in the past and have found that there is so much more online, so I prefer that option. I highly recommend bookmarking my blog so you can come here and shop all of my picks quickly and easily without sifting through pages and pages. I will also be sharing lots of collages and favorites in the LIKEtoKNOWit app so make sure you are following me along there as well as Instagram! I will be posting a try on in my Insta Stories as soon as I get my goodies as well. Which ever option you choose, I recommend you shop quickly and check out fast. That is key in this sale because things sell out right before your eyes.
My advice for shopping the sale:
Shop early, shop quickly and shop smart! I always do a closet inventory of items I need for fall (ex. leggings, jeans, cardigans, workout clothes, boots, etc.) and make sure that I grab those first. I try to buy the things that I know I will need and wear a lot throughout the season but don’t want to pay full price for. I highly, highly recommend applying for the Nordstrom card ASAP so that you can shop the sale early! Apply HERE!
I am so looking forward to this year’s sale and sharing all of the best sale finds with you this year! Make sure you follow me on Instagram and LIKEtoKNOWit and bookmark this page so you can come back and shop my picks!

I haven’t shared Amazon finds in a while, but I have ordered so many random things during quarantine and thought I’d share some! Amazon has been a life saver lately and so convenient.
These sunglasses and the cutest vintage style! I love the style and they are so affordable!
We ordered this mosquito lantern a few weeks ago and it has worked so well. We have used it on our back porch and have had a positive experience with it. It’s so low maintenance and I love the look of it.
The beach bag is so cute and comes in several sayings.
The make-up cleaning pad is something I just ordered and have not used yet. My brushes need a scrub down, so I’m excited to get it in and use it!
The fabric defuzzer is on my wish list but it has great reviews and I know others who have it and love it!
The electric lighter is also on my wish list! It looks so chic and I’ve been wanting to try it out!
This initial ring is so adorable!
I recently ordered this game and it is so fun! It’s easy to play (my oldest two can play it) and is great for family game nights!
I love these simply modern tumblers! I love that they come with a lid and straw! They make getting to my daily water goal so much easier!
These eye masks have been a new found favorite! I’ve tried to up my beauty/skincare during this time of staying at home more and I have really loved using these once or twice a week.
These flip flops are another favorite. I’ve worn them so much and they are very comfortable but also go with everything!
We are just over one week away from Father’s day, so I am rounding up Fathers day gifts from Target, Nordstrom and of course – Amazon! I am all about that prime life and tend to order things so last minute, so Amazon prime is there for me every. single. time. I hope you are able to find something for all the dads in your life and as always, if you know of a perfect gift I need to add to the list, let me know in the comments!

This is such a crazy world we are living in with the coronavirus in full swing. I hope you all stay at home and stay safe during this uncertain time. Since we have been stuck at home for over a month, I have had to get creative with a good home workout routine. But everyone knows the best part of working out (and my favorite part) is the great post workout snacks that I am always eager to treat myself to. #foodie 😉
Ryan and I have started running again and I have been doing some other workout videos online as well. I am feeling so much healthier than I did a month ago and I am so thankful for the extra time over the last month we have had to dedicate to our health. I am hoping to take this routine, along with the healthier foods we have been eating, with us moving forward. We have made a lot of positive changes in areas we had gotten off track in during our kitchen renovation (I’ll share it soon).
I recently discovered 3BAR, a healthy post=workout snack, and have fallen in love with these tasty bars! The 3 stands for the three main macros that your body needs for energy – protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats. 3BAR has 13 grams of protein and has less than 10 grams of sugar, making this the perfect post-workout snack!
My favorite flavor is the Cocoa Crunch, but my kids love the Tropical Tri! Yes, my kids love them, too! These are not only great for post workout snacks, but they also make great grab and go snack for those busy chauffeur days. I am honestly looking forward to getting back to those again (hopefully soon). Oh, I almost forgot to mention, 3BAR is gluten free, soy free, wheat free, GMO free, trans fat free…you get the picture! They are pretty great and pretty great for you!
You can get more information about 3BAR by clicking here. And don’t forget to use the discount code LOGANCAN for FREE shipping! They also offer a sample pack that you can try for free! It’s a win/win!
I always start shopping for swimsuits early in the year because the good ones sell out FAST! I have already seen some of these sell out and restock once, so I recommend shopping earlier rather than later. All of these swimsuits have good coverage and are great options for those of us who spend most of our time chasing toddler around the pool. HA! I hope you find some winners amongst these affordable swimsuit options!

This is also the last major holiday that will be Tucker’s “first” during his first year. I can’t believe he will be 10 months old tomorrow. Someone pinch me! I am sharing some Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for her, him and the kiddos below:
Sweater // Scrunchies // Karaoke Microphone // Crayons // Rain boots // Cuddle + Kind Doll // Charlie Brown Book // Pete the Cat Book // Heart Craft // Converse Sneakers // Name Crayons // Heart Sunglasses
Is anyone else is crazy organization mode in there house this month? I feel like every January I start cleaning and organizing everything and it feels so good. This year it has been overwhelming with our move. We still have stuff everywhere…both ours and some of my grandparent’s things that we are slowly but surely taking care of and finding place for. It’s been an overwhelming process, but I am so proud of the progress we are making and can’t wait to see it continue to come together. We start our big kitchen renovation next month and will be replacing the floors in the entire downstairs, so for now, I am focusing on organizing our bedroom closets and bathrooms. I am linking several of the best organization products that I found while perusing Amazon below!
Label maker – You can be super fancy like me and just use tape and a sharpie, or you can make your things looks very nice with this label maker. It is so affordable and worth every penny if you have a lot of labeling to do.
Sippy Cup Organizer – Keep those cups nice and neat in your cabinets with this organizer!
Pan Organizer – Another good one for the kitchen. I love this pan shelf organizer to easily grab the pan you need instead of your cabinets being a mess (like mine tend to be)
Storage Box – This is actually in my cart. I need about 100 of these at the moment. They are perfect for organizing arts and crafts or photos!
Luggage Organizers – If you travel a lot, these are great for organizing your luggage and so affordable!
Laundry Organizing Hamper – I actually have one of these and LOVE it! It makes organizing our laundry so easy.
Hanging Jewelry Organizer – I need one of these at the moment. My jewelry is a hot mess. I love that this one hangs and you can easily see and grab what you need.
Car Caddy – I love this for keeping extra diapers and wipes, toys and snacks organized in the car. It would be great to have in time for our spring and summer travels! Here is another more affordable option that I love!
Hanging Clothes Organizer – I love that this clothes organizer is labeled by days of the week! It would make laying out the kid’s clothes so easy! You could also use it for homework or daily crafts and projects.
Drawer Organizers – I am grabbing some of these for our bathroom drawers!
Large Baskets – I have a few random baskets scattered through our house that I use to throw blankets in or toys. They are very useful when you have babies and small children. This one is very affordable!
Makeup Bag – I have this in pink and love it. I bought it a year ago and it has been one of my favorite purchases from last year. It is great for traveling and organizing your makeup.
Dry-Erase Calendar – I love that this calendar is magnetic making it perfect for your fridge! These are great for planning your week!
Playroom Organizer for Toys – I love this option for organizing toys! It is also under $50 making it a very affordable option.
Makeup Caddy – This is on my wish list! It is a great way to organize your makeup and other skincare products.
Over the Cabinet Styling Tool Organizer – This is a perfect way to organize your hair dryer and curling irons!

Happy new year, y’all! I just typed out “2020” and it hit me that I am getting on up there in age. I mean I remember – like REALLY remember – the millennium and what a big deal it all was. That was 20 years ago. Holy cow. Anyways… This is always one of my favorite posts to write every year (and your’s, too). I am a sucker for a good book list and have a growing list of books that I want to read in my notes on my phone. One of my favorite things to do is to research new books that are coming out in the new year to add to that growing list. Here are 20 books to read in 2020.
Books to Read:
Clothes and Other Things That Matter by Alexandra Shulman – If you enjoy non-fiction or are into fashion, this book is for you! Written by the former editor of British vogue, this book explores the meaning of clothes and why/how we wear them. I am so excited to read this one! I’ll link it as soon as I can.
Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel – I am not sure if I want to read this one yet or not, but I have seen it everywhere. It is about a troubled mother-daughter relationship and has a dark context. I do not normally read things like this, but it is supposed to be really good if you are into this sort of novel. Buy it here.
All The Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig and Karen White – yes, you read that right. Three authors, one novel! This one is set in Paris and about three generations of women living at different times in the same area and how their lives collide. I am very excited to read this one! It comes out on the 14th! Buy it here.
The Upside of Being Down by Jen Gotchu – this non-fiction book is by the founder of ban.do. It is all about how her struggles with mental illness led to her greatest successes in work and life. Buy it here.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng – I just started this one, myself. It came out last year, but it has amazing reviews and I’ve had it recommended to me by many friends in my personal life as well. I’m excited to dive into it more. Buy it here.
Miracle Creek by Angie Kim – When I heard about this being similar to Liane Moriarty’s books, I was sold. I already have it sitting in my Amazon cart as we speak. I love a good mystery novel. Buy it here.
Risen Motherhood by Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler – One of you recommended this to me on Instagram and I have really enjoyed it over the last few months. It is a good one to gift to a sister or friend as well as for yourself to read. It is so encouraging to mothers. Buy it here.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins – This is an anticipated novel by many. This book takes place before the Hunger Games, so if you were into the trilogy, this is a must read this year! Buy it here.
The Lies That Bind by Emily Giffin – I have read every single Emily Giffin book and absolutely love novels. I am really looking forward to reading this one this summer on a beach somewhere. Preorder it here.
Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid – This novel is centered around race and privilege and the story sounds like one I won’t be able to put down. It is also on Reese’s book club list this year and just released last week! Buy it here.
And just like every year, I am ending with a classic, except because two of my all-time favorite classic novels are being made into movies this year, I am including them both. Make sure to read Emma by Jane Austen and The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett before they hit the big screen!
