Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 - Take One - Hot Picks



Ready, Set & Click



"Happiness is not in money, but in shopping."  Marilyn Monroe




The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins for Nordstrom cardholders next week on August 4th.  Depending on your level, you will be able to order prior to the actual start of the sale.   Your level is based on how much you spend at Nordstrom on a yearly basis.   Everyone NOW can view the online catalog at Nordstrom.com. 

For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale.  I am positive many like me will do the same. Ever since, I was in high school, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has been an exciting event for me.  Grab a coffee, meet a friend and purchase clothes. We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  

If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, everything stopped.  We are slowly coming back out and one day this way of life will be over.  Remain positive, upbeat and seek out the light. 


Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Open





In the meantime, treat everyone with respect and kindness.  It is probable that everyone may have a different opinion on the virus.  We are inundated with information daily that might be true or may not be true.  There is no "true" consensus as information changes rapidly with the evolution of the new virus.  Several of my friends have had it and are fine.  All were over the age of 59 and several with underlying conditions.  Be safe, thoughtful, and considerate.  Do not stop your life for fear of the unknown and instead embrace being practical and prudent.  Wear a mask.   

Most importantly, be kind to everyone.   If you do not like a situation, do not participate.  Walk away with grace.  After all, none of us have the answers nor do we know how this will all play out.  

We are being tested mentally and physically.  It is how you deal with each situation that will define who are in this world. Will we make mistakes? Absolutely.  Learn to apologize and move forward with poise.  Think of Audrey Hepburn.  What would Audrey do?  Become an Audrey in this life - A Queen of Kindness.




Carry on! Persevere!  Now for shopping the sale! Audrey did love clothes and remains a style icon today.

Pleasure for You


"A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles"
Each day is a gift and being grateful for your life, your home, your friends and family is enough.  I find writing everyday about what I am grateful for in 2020 provides contentment and peace.   The Five Minute Journal as mentioned in previous posts, is a must-have for all of us living through the year 2020.  It is a wonderful way to start and end your day.  Millions of successful people take the time to remind themselves of their blessings.  Of course, shopping for yourself, within a budget, can create brightness to any day.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
