Nordstrom Sale Beauty Products

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially begins T O D A Y for Nordstrom card holders! If you don't have a card, no worries, you can shop the sale next week! 

Thursday July 13th – Thursday, July 20th:  early access for Nordstrom card holders

Friday, July 21st – Sunday, August 6th: NSale is open to all!

The thing that is different about this sale, is that they're not just marking down old products that didn't sell. They're marking down NEW items for fall or items that are usually full price all year round. These items will be marked down for the sale and go back to full price after. 

I think the best items to take advantage of during this sale are BEAUTY products. If you're going to buy them at some point during the year, you might as well buy them now because this is the lowest price you'll find! I've rounded up some of my favorite products from the sale below.

**These are ONLY products that I've personally used and love. You've probably seen me talk about them in my videos or other blog posts!

I've linked the Clarisonic and Foreo which are on sale as well. I use these every day and love them! I've done blog posts on them so if you wanted to learn more, just search for them on my home page or go to the Hair+ Beauty tab.  If you were wanting to buy them, now is the time because they're majorly marked down.

I also linked NEULASH which is on sale! I also use this every day and L O V E  it! This never goes on sale so I was super excited. It makes your eyelashes so long! (I've done a blog post on this as well if you want more info).  

And lastly, two of my fav candle brands are on sale so I threw those in as well!

Happy shopping! xx

Cozy Rugs with Rugs USA

Decorating a new home is one of my favorite things about moving! I love taking a blank space and making it feel like home.  Today I'm sharing a few photos of our living room and office - that are starting to feel more complete with the help of these new rugs from Rugs USA.

I have been searching high and low for a Moroccan rug that wasn't too busy (or too expensive). I love that this rug has a subtle, yet fun pattern and it didn't break the bank!

I'm loving the cozy feel that these rugs add to to our home!  The faux fur rug has the softest texture and also works as a throw over our ottoman! It's super affordable and comes in multiple colors.  You can shop them both below! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Custom Sofa with Apt2B

Photos by the lovely Jade Sharp

Making a new apartment feel like home is not a small task.  There's new spaces to fill and new corners to make cozy.  One of my favorite things about our new apartment is our closet/office space. I actually discovered on Pinterest that this is an actual thing called a "cloffice".  Who knew? Anyways, I love this space because it offers an area dedicated to reading, relaxing, dreaming, planning- all that good stuff! It's away from the TV and the kitchen so it's much more quiet and peaceful than our living room.  I knew I wanted to fill this space with a sofa that was the perfect size. It's kind of a small area so I couldn't have anything too long.  Finding that perfect couch can be tricky but something that makes this feat much easier is customization.  Apt2B allows you to pick from an amazing assortment of affordable pieces that fits your space and color scheme perfectly.   See a couch that's perfect for your space but don't love the color? Easy, just pick from an array of gorgeous colors, textures, and even leg finishes until you find that perfect look for your space.  I landed on the La Brea apartment-sized sofa in their new color, silver. I love the studs that add a touch of glam- which you know I'm all about.  It fits our space and style perfectly and I'm so glad we found something we L O V E.  Apt2B is all about sophisticated, sleek, and affordable pieces that you need in your home. Check em out!  AND you can use code APT2BLOVESLEMONBLONDE for 15% your order for the next month! Yay!       

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Blooms

Guys! I'm so excited because tomorrow is the first day of summer and nothing screams S U M M E R like a fresh bouquet of flowers! You may have remembered me featuring beautiful blooms by Bouqs (hows that for alliteration) last month.  So many of you loved the discount code for Mother's day so I'm today I'm partnering with Bouqs again to share another discount code with you all! You can  use code XOKATHLEEN for 20% off your order at Bouqs!

Bouqs a Venice, CA-based flower company that ships beautiful ‘Bouqs’ from their farms directly to customers. All their farms practice sustainable, eco-friendly farming, and they cut only what they sell- so they don't waste 1 out of every 3 stems like others. They have so many gorgeous flowers to choose from and they last SO long. This is my second boquet from them and I've been amazed at how long they've lasted. Be sure to add some fresh flowers to your next barbecue, picnic, or summer party!  Code XOKATHLEEN will get you 20% off your order at Bouqs!

Get the Skoop!

This post was sponsored by Gigasavvy. As always, all opinions are my own. Than you for supporting my blog!

For those of you who have been following me for a while (or even those who have been following me for, like, a week) you've probably picked up on the fact that I have a mean sweet tooth.  I love finding healthy alternatives to my hankerings so I can indulge without the guilt. Naturally, I was thrilled  when I heard about Nekter's new treat, Skoop.  Skoop is a handcrafted frozen treat, made out of pure ingredients such as cashew milk, all-natural honey, agave nectar, and other healthy ingredients.  Think soft serve or frozen yogurt but without all the dairy, refined sugar, preservatives, artificial flavors, and soy... Genius!   There are two flavors; Viva Vanilla and Chocolate bliss and you can pick from tons of healthy toppings; berries, granola, coconut flakes, cocoa nibs, and more!  They were both sooo good. I think the Viva Vanilla was my favorite! They're doing a free Skoop night this Friday at all of their locations! Perfect way to kick off the summer. Cheers!

Sleek Work Space

Squealing with excitement over today's post because I get to share my desk setup!  One thing I definitely wanted in our new apartment was a D E S K. I was so tired of working on my bed with my laptop on my lap or hunched over at our kitchen island.  I knew I wanted something super sleek and modern and thankfully, I found the perfect pieces at Modani! As the name implies, Modani as a ton of gorgeous, modern pieces for your home.  When I saw this desk, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.  I love the sharp lines and clean, white surface.  The stainless steel legs add to the contemporary aesthetic and keep things interesting yet uncomplicated. 

The perfect desk would not be complete with out an amazing chair.  This acrylic ghost chair is a seamless compliment to this space. I love how crisp and clean it looks against the white desk. My favorite thing about Modani are the amazing prices! Usually modern pieces like this cost a fortune but you can find some amazing steals at Modani, while still making your place look super high end. I'll link some of my other favorites from their site below.

Enjoy!

Cool Vibes with William Rast

This post is in partnership with Macy's. As always, all opinions are my own and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with brands I love.

Sometimes when you're trying to nail that cool-girl-vibe, less is more. One brand that just totally gets it is William Rast. Today, I'm excited to share a look from their line at Macy's. They have so many amazing pieces like army jackets, embroidered jeans, graphic tees, and patched leather jackets. For this look, I paired a graphic tee with this A D O R A B L E army green peplum jacket. I love that this jacket has a zipper that wraps all the way around and a little peplum flounce at the bottom. It's such a cute twist on a classic, every day piece. I think my favorite thing about this outfit would have to be the white denim jeans. White jeans are not the most easy thing to find, in my opinion.  We all know that black is a super flattering and slimming color and the opposite of black is white... so... you see what I'm saying! White jeans sometimes show it all! It's hard to find a pair that are flattering, slimming, and NOT see through!  These jeans are the answer to my white-denim-jean-prayers!! I also love the unhemmed bottom. A little bit of fray keeps these white jeans from looking too "put together". I love them so much and I've been wearing them on repeat!

I hope you guys enjoyed this look as much as I did!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
