I’ll admit it, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale can be a bit overwhelming. I try and streamline what I really need, gifts to buy others, and things that I *KNOW* I’ll use.
The beauty exclusives are some of my favorites because you can often get deals on things that never seem to go on sale. This is also my favorite time of year to pick up gifts!
If you’re looking to see all my picks for clothing, shoes, and more, check out my full guide to the sale PLUS enter to win a $500 Giftcard to Nordstrom + a Barefoot Dreams blanket!
Best of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home
Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw, originally $180 but marked down to $119 during the sale. This will sell fast! Everyone and their mom freaks out about this blanket. I FINALLY purchased one last year and it was my favorite throughout the year. Michael hates to admit it but he LOVES this too. Also makes a terrific gift. Cult favorite for a reason. I think this is perfect on the plane, road trips, or draped over my couch. I currently have it with me on my RV trip! There's also a Barefoot Dreams blanket that is a bit different for $97.90.
I think this blanket is so beautiful! I just love it. Makes the perfect gift too!

I just ran out of self tanner so trying out this St. Tropez mousse! It's got rave reviews.
Neulash Lash Enhancing Serum Duo, originally $190, on sale for $97. If you indulge yourself in one thing, may it be the Neulash enhancing serum. It works. I've had 3 tubes over 4 years. I don't use it daily but every couple days. It lengthens and strengthens your lashes. I'm obsessed. I get asked about my lashes a lot and this is the #1 reason why I think they grow!
Olaplex Jumbo Bond Maintenance System Set. Olaplex just works. I adore the bond conditioner and I love it, it's a hair saver. Also, if I don't use leave in conditioner my hair will break off, so this is a lifesaver.
Laura Mercier Prime & Perfect Collection. I bought this last year and LOVE it! It's the best powder out there!
Dermaflash ONE Lilac Exfoliation & Peach Fuzz Removal Device, value of $139 on sale for $99. Okay, I'm sick of the peach fuzz on my face. I've had it. So this device that instantly removes dead skin cells, built-up debris and pesky peach fuzz.
