NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE: What You'll Need To Know | love 'n' labels

It’s that time of year again y’all! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSALE for short) is about to begin, and it’s the largest, most exciting sale of the entire year (even bigger than Black Friday, which is hard to believe)! I will be covering the sale for you all this year and will be here as a resource for YOU. I will also be shopping the sale for myself and for TJ as well, so I’ll be sure to share all of the items that I personally buy. But I definitely want to hear YOUR thoughts and what you may be shopping for right now, so head on over to my Instagram Stories (after reading this post) to share some ideas on what you are looking for this upcoming season. I’ll keep my eyes open for you and be the best shopping resource for y’all (so that you don’t have to do all the digging on Nordstrom’s website).

A little background info … I’ve shopped the NSALE for 3 years now and own a wide variety of staple items in my closet that came from this sale in years past. I also re-purchase a lot of staple fall / winter items every year during this event, while prices are majorly discounted.

There are a few things regarding the big sale event that you’ll need to know before the madness begins, so follow along below to find ALL the information you will need …

My Summer Skincare Routine

My Summer Skincare Routine | love 'n' labels

It has been awhile since I rounded up the products in my skincare routine for you all, and my regimen has slightly changed since the last time I blogged about it. I have incorporated a few new products for summer, and I can’t wait to share more about them in detail … there’s only so much I can share in an Instagram story or caption! 😉

Before we get started, let me clarify a few things and give some background so that this is all very clear and easy to understand … I have been doing this exact routine all summer, morning and night (since beginning of May). But on top of that almost all of these products are what I have been using for about 2 and a half years now. I primarily made the switch to using the Tula brand at the very beginning of 2017 …

Sephora Beauty Insider Sale | love 'n' labels

Sephora’s Spring Beauty Insider Event is one of my favorite sales of the entire year, where I feel like I have a great excuse to stock up on a lot of the beauty products I use daily … while splurging on a few that I’ve been wanting to try! Some of my holy grail makeup & beauty products are on sale, so I wanted to share some with you all!

Walmart Fashion 101 | love 'n' labels

After my recent try-on haul with my latest Walmart Fashion finds, you guys blew up my DMs: “Can I say obsessed?” … “Only $19?!” … “This is a must have!” All these thoughts have been running through my mind as well! There’s nothing I love better than great clothes at great prices.  I have been a fashion lover since the days of rushing to Walmart to get the latest Mary Kate and Ashley clothes and jewelry when I was in elementary school. 😉 Now here I am, shopping online and finding some of my favorite brands and cutest styles at where else but WALMART!

Walt Disney World — Adult Experiences at Disney

Walt Disney World: Adult Experiences at Disney | love 'n' labels

HAPPY PLACE: Noun – A physical environment characterized by well-being and contentment.

Where is your happy place? I have a few that give me a constant smile and butterflies in my stomach, but none are as magical as Walt Disney World. My first trip to Disney World was when I was 4 years old. This was before fast passes and waiting in line was just part of the process. You can ask my mom because she waited with me in the 2-hour long line for Splash Mountain multiple times (God love her soul). I have been hooked ever since. Every trip to Walt Disney World since then has been better than the one before. Even seeing a picture of the parks and the food and the rides makes my heart skip a beat. I have told you all of this so that you can try to imagine my excitement and even my apprehension when I received an email from a Disney staff member requesting that we collaborate …

The Best NYC Hotel: Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection

The Best NYC Hotel: Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection | love 'n' labels

I don’t know how many of you have been to New York City but I have been a few times, which is certainly not enough because my love for the City can’t be measured. One of the things I have learned from my previous trips is that ‘where you stay’ certainly has a huge impact on the success and enjoyment of your trip. I have stayed in suites, regular hotel rooms, and what seemed to me to be a closet during one trip LOL, but none can compare to my last trip when I stayed at The Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection. This hotel has so much to offer and has something for everyone: business travelers, families, couples, groups … and fashion bloggers. 😉

The Lexington was built in 1929 and has maintained the style and architecture of that period. The energy of this midtown location, the Art Deco building itself, and the star-quality of guests – past and present – define this hotel.

When I learned that my friend, @heatherpoppie, and I (along with our fan club (our moms!)) were going to get to stay at this hotel during New York Fashion Week (Feb. 2019), I was beyond thrilled …

2019 Travel Diaries — Intro

2019 Travel Diaries: Intro | love 'n' labels

2019 has been off to a very adventurous start for me with lots of trips to new places. Travel has always been one of my favorite things to do, for as long as I can remember. I grew up going from state to state for competitive cheer competitions when I was younger, so I guess that’s where my love for travel really began. Ever since then, I’ve always loved exploring new places and experiencing new cultures. Thankfully, TJ loves getting away as much as I do — we even got engaged on the opposite side of the country in California — so we try to travel as much as we can right now before expanding our family.

As a “fashion blogger”, I never really put much thought into sharing my travels more in depth with you all until late last year when I received an overwhelming amount of emails/messages after a few of the trips I went on … “Where did you stay?” … “Where did you eat?” … “What is there to do?” … “How’s the shopping there?” … “Top recommendations?!” … “Must sees??”  … The questions continue to flood in for every trip that I go on even to this day, so I recently decided to start sharing my travel diaries with you all more in depth! I shared a few travel posts last year on my blog, and you all seemed to really enjoy them. So, this year after each trip, my plan is to share all the details with you all, in case you and your family ever decide to visit the same places I’ve been to. I want this site to continue being a helpful resource for you in all aspects of life — whether that be fashion, makeup finds, travel deets, day-to-day life, tips/tricks, etc. I hope you’ll enjoy this series over the next year and will continue to follow along with each upcoming getaway!

Now before we get started on my first trip recap of 2019, I do want to point out something important that I wish more people in this industry would share with their audiences …

If you’re like me, I always love shopping for New Year’s Eve outfits, and this year there are sooo many good options to choose from.

From jackets to dresses to skirts to accessories, there’s a little bit of everything linked below … simply click on the image below that you would like to shop and you’ll instantly be directed to the retailer’s site!

One question I get quite often is how to make dresses and skirts appropriate for the winter weather, and I get it! I’m a cold-natured gal myself, so I am always freezing anywhere I go, especially in the winter months. But, of course, I want my outfit to still look cute and trendy. My best advice for this is …
