Let me just apologize right off the bat for the fact that I’m about to make you victims of the most random, melodramatic post of all time. I have things on my mind. You guys, the massive earthquake in Nepal – did you donate to any relief efforts for that? I didn’t, and it’s really, really bugging me. If you have any suggestions for meaningful ways to contribute to that or good places to donate to, will you please share? Please please please. And thank you.

Another thing: I have a blogging friend who some (or lots) of you may know, who recently found out that her husband has stage 4 Melanoma cancer. She is 8 months pregnant with her 5th child. Sigh – can you even imagine? When I read the post on Instagram where she publicly shared her husband’s illness, I wept like a baby. She was describing my very deepest, darkest fear. What I’m getting at though is that there is a way to help this beautiful, sweet family. You can contribute to a fund that will help them pay for their medical bills, if you want to. The fund has been set up through PayPal, and donations can be sent to FRECKLEDFOXFUND@gmail.com. Make sure you select the friends or family option.

Ok, last one: want to hear something funny? I was featured on the LiketoKnow.it Instagram account yesterday. It was this picture. I was reading through some of the comments, and a couple people said something about how manly my arms looked. To quote the comments exactly: “Man or woman’s arms?” and then the other one was “Is this for a man?” Haha! Oh you guys – the things people say on the internets. The funny thing is, I read those comments and felt myself for a minute going down that rabbit hole of ‘OMG – do I have weird man arms? Is that something I should be self conscious of and I just didn’t realize it? How did I not know that I have weird man arms?!!!’ And then I stopped. And I thought to myself ‘Ya know what? No. Not doing it.’ And that’s it. End of story. I just want you to all know that I am consciously making the decision to not worry or be self conscious about my apparently creepy man arms. Haha!

p.s. There are still a handful of hours left to shop the Surprise Sale at Kate Spade, where things are discounted as much as 75% off, AND obvi don’t forget to check out the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale before everything is sold out! You can see my top picks from the sale in this post. Happy Shalalalalopping

Have a ‘Thank goodness it’s almost Friday’ Thursday!
(i’ve used this one tons. it’s a good one.)

Thanks so much for reading!

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale!

Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 1.03.27 AM

SHOP THE SALE

HANDBAGS

SHOES

CLOTHES

Yep – it’s that time. The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is here people! This has been my strategy for awhile now guys: I keep an ongoing list of things that I want to add to my closet or that I’ve had my eye on. I also keep an ongoing list of ‘investment pieces’ I’m interested in (i.e. nicer handbags, a super classic, well-made pair of heels, etc.). Then, I wait until my favorite retailers who sell things like that are having their huge sales…. i.e. Nordstrom… i.e. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES… and then that’s when I buy. I basically never, ever buy my nicer items at full price, cuz why would you when you can hold out and then get them for a significant discount? Example: this would be an excellent time to pull the trigger on getting a super classic, nicer black or brown handbag like this Michael Kors or this Rebecca Minkoff. OR, it would be a great time to treat yourself to one of those Kate Spade items you’ve only ever dreamed about owning (like this killer pencil skirt or pop-of-color handbag) but know you’d use a lot if you had it. Do it now when it’s majorly on sale! That’s what I’m sayin’.

And there you have it! That strategy has been working really well and I fully intend to apply it to the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale this season. Woot! My favorite picks from the sale are above. Make sure you disable any ad-blockers or pop-up blockers on your site so you can see them. Sale started today and goes through the 31st, but I’ll tell you right now – stuff sells out crazy fast (i.e. this amazing Tory Burch bag was available last night at midnight and is now gone) , so if you’re planning on capitalizing on this, I’d get to it. HAPPY SHOPPING!

Have a Whisking you into the end of the week Wednesday!
(whatever the H that means)

Thanks for reading.
