Growing up, I remember my mom anticipating the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. I also remember getting pretty excited about it myself, probably because her enthusiasm rubbed off on me even at a very young age. When I went to overnight summer camp, which I loved every minute of, I recall secretly wishing that I could come home for a few days – mid camp session – just to attend the sale, since I knew by the time camp was over and I was on my way home that it would already be over! One year, I got my wish but it came along with a broken foot, which is a completely separate blog post but I remember even with a broken foot and having to leave camp for nine days, a part of me was fine with it because I would get to go to the one and only Nordstrom Anniversary sale! HA – if that doesn’t show my love of shopping, I don’t know what does.Fast forward to now, and I am still all about wishing my favorite retail store a happy anniversary, with a sale at my fingertips, of course. If you haven’t already been, you MUST go asap – or better yet, just shop the sale online via ebates! (I know not every city is fortunate enough to have an a magnifcent Nordy’s in the area). Did I mention that all the selected sale items (anything from clothing to shoes to handbags to makeup and gift sets) are up to 30-40% off their original prices?! That’s a lot… time to stock up, people!! Enjoy a peak at some of my favorite things that the sale has to offer!

Have fun shopping the best sale in the business…
If you live in Chicago, you would know that just within the past week alone there have been A LOT of musicians in town to perform for their fans! The big ones including Beyoncé, New Kids on the Block with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees, Phish, R. Kelly, Pearl Jam and Justin Timberlake with Jay-Z. If you were amongst one of the lucky devotees, you got to see at least one of these unbelievable artists perform live, obviously giving it all they got. I had the pleasure of attending two of these big-named artists’ concerts and seeing them give it their 100% in my hometown! As I mentioned in my catch-up post from last Thursday, I knew I was going to have a busy week which included going to the New Kids concert with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees as well as watching JT and Jay-Z do their thing together on stage. I also had the opportunity of taking part in a few other special events (some planned, some not) & I must admit, it was all pretty epic! That’s why I thought I’d share with you, my most favorite readers, the highlights!
