It’s almost August which means fall is just around the corner. It is officially time to start looking at coats and jackets (especially if they are on sale). These are my tops picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but make sure to check out their entire selection here.
It’s Makeup Monday!! I’ve put together another collage that includes my favorite makeup deals from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ! I also included some of my favorite tools/skin care products. We all know makeup rarely goes on sale, so take advantage of the AMAZING deals Nordstrom is currently offering. There are so many makeup sets that are must-haves! The prices will really surprise you…and I mean REALLY! I am personally obsessed with the DryBar set! It’s normally $225 and currently on sale for $154!!
I said it yesterday and ill say it again…it seems CRAZY to buy boots in July but you will thank me once you see these prices. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most anticipated sales of the year and with good reason. The prices are amazing and unbeatable! I’ve listed some of my favorite knee-high boots above.
We just left Dollywood, yes Dollywood! You all know I am a huge ELVIS fan and this whole road trip is a Pilgrimage to see him. But I couldn’t pass right by Dolly and not stop in to say hi! After all, I am sure they were friend (or met at an award show or had a southern friend in common…wouldn’t you think)? I couldn’t find any photos of them together, not a great sign. But I am hopeful that they were in fact friendly. While researching Dolly and trolling the Dollywood site, I found myself playing Jolene over and over again on my iPhone. What a powerful song. I love everything Dolly stands for. A strong smart woman who has a wild spirit and untamed voice; a true southern family woman. I learned that Dolly wanted to give back to her home town later in her life so she built Dollywood to provide jobs etc.
We had a great time at Dollywood, it’s really like every other theme park in terms of rides except it was mountain themed and had a little extra Southern charm. We stayed at Dolly’s new hotel called the DreamMore; such a beautiful hotel with tons of children activities. They had story time, arts and crafts as well as outdoor movies complete with s’mores. The food was delicious and we had an all around great time! I would 100% go back for at least a 4-day stay .There is so much more to do!
For this small portion of the trip, we will have to click off the Elvis and tune into Dolly .
I’ll let you know for sure but I’m pretty sure its safe to say that Blondes do have more fun!
I know it seems a little crazy to be shopping for boots in the middle of summer but there are such great deals right now at Nordstrom and fall is just around the corner! These are some of my top picks from the sale. You can find so many other styles HERE but these are all great styles that can be worn from Fall to Spring and everything in-between.
The Biltmore Hotel is one of those places that I have been reading about for years. I have a southern gal pal that goes every year with her Grandmother and swears it’s a fantastic weekend getaway! When I was researching my fun road trip, I knew this would be a great place to stop.
