L.A Mamacitas Event & the importance of blogging events

Ever since I had Julian and my return to being a consistent blogger, I have made it a goal to attend blogger or brand networking events, to establish and/or maintain those connections.

Why are blogging-related events so important when you're a blogger? Let me explain my reasons...

Opening Day and other events at the Del Mar Racetrack

Last week Del Mar kicked off its 79th summer racing season with its traditional (and spectacular) Del Mar Opening Day! As I mentioned previously (here), overdressing and hats/fascinators/head pieces are a must for Opening Day and if you know me, I don't let those overdressing opportunities pass me by, so this year I went with this glam ensemble (all linked below).

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Baby Picks!

As a new mom this realm of including baby picks into my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale cart is a first for me but I felt so excited about the deals that I wanted to dedicate this blog post to it! You galssssss (and guys) most of these are baby products that I bought at regular price which is a bummer for me, but a win for you all who may be shopping around for your bun in the oven or new baby or to save money on the next baby shower gift!

As I mentioned in my last post, from now until July 20th, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has given Early Access to Nordstrom credit and debit card holders! After July 20th it is open to the public until August 5th when the prices go back up, if the item is not sold out.

Deals such as the the NUNA MIXX™ Stroller & PIPA™ Lite LX Infant Car Seat Set Travel System (about 25%) to the baby essential that is a DOCKATOT that I can vouch for, to deals like the ADIDAS Superstar Sneakers that are just too darn cute to pass up!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Picks

It's that time of year again! Today, July 12 marks the beginning  of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with Early Access to Nordstrom cardholders! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a big deal not only for us usual shopaholics, but for savvy shoppers due to the highly discounted prices on amazing brand name items- Nordstrom considers it, its "biggest sale of the year". For me, the best part about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that they chop prices on brand and luxury items, I'm talking Tory Burch, Movado watches, Nike, Michael Kors, Kate Spade to name a few. Today I want to highlight what I aim for first because chances are they go out of stock- ShoesHandbags and Accessories!

Early Access (July 12 - July 20) : If you're a Nordstrom credit card or debit card holder, you get first dibs on a lot of brand name items that are sure to sell out! Obviously you can open a card now, but I would only recommend that if it's in your budget! If you don't have a Nordstrom Card do not fret, your chance at these highly reduced item is coming on July 20th when it opens to the public.

After a few years of shopping this sale, I think the main thing is to nab what you want as soon as you can as the good stuff tends to sell out. These items go back up to full price (if they are still in stock) when the sale is over on August 5thYou'll notice that my picks are staple pieces with a couple of baby essentials (now that I'm a mom).

Dates to note:

  • July 12 Early Access to card members 
  • July 20 Sale is open to the public 
  • August 5 Sale ends





Happy Shopping!

Little White Dress for 4th of July

While I usually reserve the red, white and blue for the 4th of July (as can be seen here, here and here) this time around I just wanted to wear a good ol' casual white dress, put on some comfy (but still cute) sandals and feel the warmth of the summer sun while sippin' on a glass of wine! In my defense, I was pregnant all last summer so this girl (pointing at myself) has a lot of catching up to do in the FUN department.
