WANT IT WEDNESDAY - NSALE SHOPPING SPREE

It's the most wonderful time of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here!!
This sale is amazing but it can get a little overwhelming. My little trick: I shop the sale by going through page by page of each department I am interested in (Women's, Home, etc) and add EVERY item I like in my cart. After doing so you can just imagine the total damage in my cart 🙈 After that, I start discarding items one by one until I am left with all the items I just cannot bear to live without. Ok, maybe I could live without them but I really don't want to live without them i.e. I had to purchase them 😂 This kind of takes a long time but it gets me really familiar with the sale and I have to be sure I don't miss anything, duh. Anyways, I love shopping this sale and I love checking out what other people purchased so I thought I'd share my purchases as well as other items I had my eye on. All the items I purchased are under $100 😉 TIP: Don't get discouraged that some items are sold out. Keep going back and checking on them every day! I know Nordstrom restocks some (not all) items. Just a reminder: Early Access goes through Thursday, July 20th and then the public sale is July 21st through August 6th!

SUMMER READING LIST

I have always loved reading as a kid but haven't been reading nearly as much as I would like to in the past few years. Reading in college was difficult with studying and homework (or going out too much) but now that I'm a couple years out of college I've been trying to dedicate more time to get back into reading. My favorite genre, which would come as no surprise to anyone that knows me, is anything twisted, suspenseful, and thrilling. The more messed up a book is the more I will like it.
If this is your type of genre as well check out my list of recommendations below!
Ollie follows me everywhere so of course he plopped himself front center  😂

4th OF JULY FRUIT PIZZA

4th of July is here! This is by far my favorite holiday of the entire year. Matt and I always spend the weekend in Door County, WI with his family and we always have so much fun :) I like to bring some kind of festive treat for holiday weekends so this time I made a 4th of July themed fruit pizza! If you haven't noticed this yet, I tend to go for really easy recipes because I am by no means Betty Crocker so this is not only a really tasty and festive treat but so easy to make too. Hope you all have a great 4th of July celebrating with friends and family!

WANT IT WEDNESDAY - OFFICE ACCESSORIES

Anyone who knows me knows that I love decorating, designing, and customizing anything and everything I possibly can. I started my new job back in January and I swear one of the most exciting parts of starting my new job was decorating my desk area. It took everything in me not to bring my box of office decor the first day (I waited until day 2, ha!) so people wouldn't think I'm totally crazy.

Here's a roundup of some must have office accessories! A lot of these items would also make for great gifts for someone who's starting a new job, got a promotion, etc :)
