July Favorites

Happy August, friends! Been a while since I’ve published a new post on here. I was on vacation for a week and decided to actually take time off. After the Nordstrom Sale, which normally accounts for about 10% of my annual workload AND annual income, I needed a breather. It was a LOT. But I am feeling refreshed after my time off, and ready to get back into the swing of things!

Not surprisingly, your favorite posts were all about the Nordstrom Sale! You still have this weekend to shop, BTW, so be sure to grab the remaining deals while you still can.

1: My Nordstrom Sale Wishlist

This year, I published a blog post featuring the items I wanted from the N Sale as well as the “best picks” in my opinion, in a wishlist that was live the day before the sale opened for early access. It was something new and I am so glad you all loved it!!!

2: Nordstrom Sale Dupes

Another new post… that also did well πŸ™‚ as we know, many popular items from the N Sale sell out quickly. I wanted to find “dupe” or similar items for these popular pieces! It took a loooong time but I was really proud of this post.

3: Nordstrom Sale Picks

The classic N Sale post! This went live on Early Access launch day and this year, I organized the picks by category instead of price. What did you think of this post organization?

My Nordstrom try on did really well this year, compared to previous years! Granted, it’s still small numerically compared to other bigger YouTubers but it was a win in my book πŸ™‚ glad to see your positive feedback in the comments on this, too!

favorite things

Go Macro Bars

These are my new go-to bars. They fit my macros from FWTFL so well, and they taste great. It DID take me a while to adjust to the not-so-sweet taste of it, because most bars are jam packed with sugar, but I adjusted and am now addicted. As bars go, these are the healthiest I’ve found that are still yummy.

Spin Class

I took my first ever spin class in July and it’s safe to say I loved it. It was such a rush. I was so sore the next day and am hoping to make spin a part of my usual routine!

ARC Strips

One of my favorite campaigns this year was in July! I love the ARC strips – they’re the only ones that haven’t slipped off my teeth resulting in a gross mess. You know what I mean… yuuuuck. Check out my full post for more deets.

Hope you had a fantastic July, and now onto August!

    If I’m not mistaken, you talked about “way more styling videos” in your last video, therefore I hope you manage to follow-up on that soon. Cheers! πŸ™‚
