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:
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!
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!

I love a good Amazon prime find! I have been shopping through Amazon more and more and sometimes it is hit or miss, but these have been hits for me this month! Everything is under $50 and fits TTS!
Happy Monday! I have been looking forward to sharing this warm and cozy American Eagle try on with y’all for a while! It is so good and I genuinely love all of these pieces! I got my true size in everything that I’m wearing. I hope you enjoy these picks as much as I enjoyed picking them out for y’all!

Hey, y’all! I have been super MIA this week due to the sudden passing of my cousin’s wife. Many of you reached out to me on Instagram and I appreciate all of you and your prayers for her family. She was so loved and cherished and my heart just breaks for her family. It is also mental health awareness week and my anxiety has been high (as you can probably imagine) this week. I’ve found it helpful to keep busy, but have had a lot of sleepless nights and a very hard time staying focused. I think that is pretty normal during a sudden tragedy, but the situation has been all too real to me having recently had another baby, myself. It has put things into perspective and made me realize how fragile a woman’s body truly is after giving birth.
I talked about my personal struggle with anxiety recently, but I wanted to reiterate that if you are struggling with anxiety, depression or any other mental illnesses, it is so important to talk to those around you who you trust. For me, that has been Ryan, my doctor, close friends and family. Just letting them know and making them aware will help so much. There is absolutely no shame in reaching out or admitting you are struggling. News flash: Everyone does at one point or another. Here are a few things that I do to help with my postpartum anxiety:
Prayer and meditation
Talking and asking for help when things get to be overwhelming.
Go to bed early
Stay positive (take control of your thoughts)

I love finding affordable options especially when they are available for prime shipping! We sure our getting spoiled with our Amazon shipping, aren’t we (haha)? But, when you need something on short notice and don’t have time or want to go shopping in a store, it really is great. I ordered three Amazon sweaters to try this week and I honestly was very disappointed with two out of the three.
If you follow me on Instagram, I shared the packaging in my stories. Because of the way that the sweater was packaged and the poor quality, both of the sweaters (from the same brand) were messed up. I am unfortunately having to return them. I did love the third option. I was pleased with the fit and quality and love the color blocking on the sleeves. It is so adorable and very affordable. All three of these fit TTS. I am linking some other sweater options below that you can check out!
You can easily see where this sweater was damaged. I unfortunately can not recommend this one. It was very thin and poor quality and the stitching was all messed up on the front.
Again, this one is very damaged as you can see. I love the look of this one, but it was very poor quality. It is the same brand as the one above. I was sad and disappointed about this one.
This sweater is honestly, GREAT! The quality was good for the price (granted, not free people quality, but good for the price). I love the fit of this one and it was in perfect condition. This Amazon sweater restored my faith in Amazon again.
Amazon can be very hit or miss and lately I have had a lot more misses than hits, but I am determined to find more pieces that I can recommend to you, so stay tuned for more!

I have grabbed a few basics for fall recently and am excited to share them with y’all today! These are great if you are doing a capsule wardrobe or needing some budget-friendly fall pieces now that a few of you are starting to experience fall-like weather. Unfortunately, we aren’t yet, so feel free to send it our way because this girl is SO ready for cooler temps. Everything fits TTS. I did size up in the white button down for added length and in the thermal, but they do fit TTS if you want a closer fit than what you see here. Thank you for shopping through my links and supporting us!
Target Try On:
