Let’s talk about bathrooms. Are we close enough to be able to do that? (answer: ummmm, depends on what aspect of bathrooms you’re wanting to talk about Shannon, you weirdo). K, YES, it’s where all our personal biznass takes place (which is the part we won’t be talking about here, so don’t you worry), but it’s also where a lot of us spend a relatively significant amount of time, especially in the morning when we’re getting ready for the day. I don’t know about you, but from old towels to bare walls, my bathroom has been in need of a serious tune-up. Sooooo: I teamed up with Target to apply some simple, easy, budget friendly tweaks to my bathroom in hopes of making it less dull and stressful and more inspiring and refreshing. Woot!

You guys! After all the build-up it’s finally HERE! Public access to the best sale of the year (Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, duh). Pic above is a lil’ sneak peak of how I styled some of my fave purchases from the sale. I didn’t have time to pull together the full post (day job is nuts right now, but that’s a story for another time) but make no mistake about it: you need everything I’m wearing in that pic: the faux fur vest, the tunic (especially. put that baby on and just TRY not to buy it in three colors. I dare you.), and the jeans (can we way perfect distress?). The shoes aren’t part of the sale but they’re fab enough that you need them anyway (chunky heel equals comfy and Dolce Vita equals sexy as death).

So is this how you’re starting to feel too about Nsale posts? Jack is SO OVER IT. Haha! This was yesterday when we of course went back to Nordy’s for one last (hopefully) run-through of things on my wish list from the NSale. He was not havin’ it. Despite that though, you guys I walked out of there with guuuuud stuff that I can’t even believe I considered not buying. I bought this tunic in three colors (white, black and olive) because it is seriously that good. So flattering, so comfy, and so great for chubby, bloated days (#winning). Also waltzed out of there with this adorable Kate Spade wallet, these killer jeans (under $50! for jeans!), and this cutie phone case. Necessary, right? I’m ridiculous.
At any rate, Happy Hump Day! My apologies for the general lack of actual outfit posts lately. For some reason it’s seemed like such a struggle recently to get any pics taken. Woof. BUT, since you’re totally not even sick of this at all (murp), for today’s post I’ve rounded up my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks for makeup/beauty and beauty and for MEN. Woot! Public access to the sale starts this Friday! (p.s. be sure that you’re following me on Instagram for a little sale-kick-off giveaway on Friday that you won’t wanna miss!)

K guys – I hope it’s not starting to feel like I’m beating a dead horse here, but the reason I’ve been emphasizing the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so much is because it’s that good (in my opinion at least). AND, if you haven’t had ‘early access’ to the sale because you don’t have a Nordy’s card, never fear: the sale will open up to everyone on Thursday, July 16! To prep you for that, I’ll be doing several round-ups this week: Sale faves for under $50, sale faves for under $100, and my favorite ‘investment’ pieces – things that are over $100 or more but that I think are hashtag worth it (and I’ll share why I think so). By Thursday if you’re checking GBO regularly this week, all the work should be done for you and you can hit the sale knowing exactly what you want to get your paws on before it sells out! Woot!
