SO thrilled to share another massive gift guide with you guys. I truly enjoy putting this together, so I hope you enjoy it. It’s almost like my way of working for a “magazine” since I never did pursue that path (but always thought I would as a kid). In each category you will find an array of price points so don’t be too scared away by some pricier items. I hope my gift guide makes your holiday shopping just a little bit easier and provides you with a source of inspiration. Would love to get some feedback so I can take into consideration for future gift guides; your suggestions are always appreciated!

You will also find my holiday donut recipe in this gift guide. They are super easy + yummy for any holiday party or just a fun DIY project to do with girlfriends.

Happy shopping!

*Tip: view the gift guide in ‘full-screen mode’ to get the full experience

A few notes:
My suggestion is to view the entire gift guide in full-screen mode to really see everything up close and personal. Once you’ve browsed, go through it a second time to begin clicking through.

I’ve always wanted to present my gift guide in a magazine format. You might remember my previous gift guides, and essentially they were just one massive post full of collages. This year I’ve really stepped it up to bring you a much more effective version that compiles everything in one place.

I would love to get your feedback on this layout. Do you like it? Is it easy to understand / use / shop? Any changes you would suggest? Let me know! Everything in this book is shoppable so go to town hovering your mouse over images and products to shop!

Happy Holidays!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
It’s that time…the sale we all wait for! Shopping this sale takes me back to high school, when I would save up all my allowance and retail job money to go shop all the Juicy Couture on sale [insert laughing emoji face]. This time around I’m eyeing the expensive designer stuff I wouldn’t typically splurge on. Today, though, instead of battling the crowds I shop the sale online from the comfort of my own couch. With free shipping and free returns there is ZERO reason for me to get up, put on a bra, drive there, looking for PARKING (impossible), and most likely get run over by the tweens looking for Juicy (or whatever the trendy equivalent is today).

As an early access shopper, I’ve taken the liberty of filtering through the sale catalog to bring you my favorite picks, should you be like me and get overwhelmed looking at 89+ pages of product. To shop, simply click each product and you’ll be directed to the sale! Don’t wait too long though, early access ends July 21st, and then the sale becomes public July 22nd. If you’re confused what “early access” means, basically if you have a Nordies credit or debit card you get to shop the sale before all the non-credit card holders do. I’m not big on store credit cards (I’m sure most of us are not), so instead I actually linked the Nordies debit card to my existing checking account and I still get all the benefits and perks. Happy Shopping!
