The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally happening this month! Early Access kicked off on 7/13 for Nordstrom Card holders and will last until 7/20 – the sale will be open to the public starting 7/21 and ends 8/6. As a beauty junkie, this is one of my all-time favorite events because this is not only when Nordstrom has amazing deals going, but also when they debut a ton of their latest Beauty Exclusives as well as an early preview of Fall launches. They have great value sets and exclusives for makeup, skincare, fragrance, tools, bath & body, etc. My favorite items are their beauty sets and their best sellers which are offered in large value sizes. The 2017 Anniversary Sale catalog is available online which you can download from their site. Selections this year are particularly next level and I am literally counting down the hours until the public sale kicks off with my wishlist list in hand. The selections can be quite overwhelming at times, especially since there is so much going on as the sale is not just limited to beauty but their entire store. I always advise to make a list beforehand of the items you want, plus the GWPs that will be running so you don’t miss out on any amazing extras. Do note some of the GWPs may be online only. In celebration of the sale, today’s post is dedicated to recommendations of my faves picks so far.
