And I gotta say it again, I’m just having SO MUCH FUN with this series.
Shay – we are going to do this again next year, right?
So first off, I’m guessing you guys are all DYING to know if you won one of the contests!
Well…..the winner of the $200 Rodan+Fields Prize Package is….
And the winner of the $500 gift card to Nordstrom is…
April Cowan Barclay
CONGRATULATIONS Kelli and April!
You ladies e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get your prizes to you!
Okay, so in honor of the Nordstrom gift card, I thought I would dedicate today’s post to Nordstrom.
Why you ask?
Well, there are so many reasons.
First off, because it’s Nordstrom.
Secondly, because it’s Nordstrom.
Thirdly, it’s Nordstrom people.
And finally, (and I hate to sound repetitive), but because “duh”, it’s Nordstrom.
Now before we get started with all of my suggestions,
if you have somebody that is super crazy stupid hard to buy for…..
Then I’ve got one suggestion for you where you can’t go wrong.
IT’S THE GIFT THAT IS ALWAYS THE RIGHT SIZE.

Click HERE for e-gift cards.
The original plan today was for me to highlight presents for every possible person on your list. But I’m going to be honest….I found so much stuff for the ladies, that the men and the kids are going to get shafted a bit. But hey, I’m okay with that if you are. 🙂
We deserve it. We work hard for our families! Right? RIGHT!
and The other Ladies On Your List!
Most ladies I know love getting make-up.
All of my Bobbi Brown make-up arrived a couple of days ago, and I gotta say,
I’m so excited about all of it!
I bought THIS (the special set that is $142 worth of product for $80) and THIS (a shimmer brick with PERFECT reviews)… and that enabled me to get the free gift on the bottom right!
I love everything in the $80 set (including the impressive packaging which makes it awesome for gift giving), but I loved the gel eyeliner the most! The color is intense and it was so easy to apply!
Jewelry is also a great choice for the ladies on your list!
And wouldn’t it be fun to give Kate Spade?!?
Stud earrings HERE.
They are 25% off making them under $30! 15 colors to choose from! They are big studs so they still make a statement, which I love.
Drop earrings HERE.
These are also 25% off making them under $40. 12 colors to choose from!
And you can click HERE for all Kate Spade items on sale
(choose from shoes, bags, jewelry, cell phone cases, wallets, etc.)!
And I know there are a lot of ladies out there who love collecting Pandora charms for their bracelets.
I had no idea that Nordstrom carried Pandora until I stumbled upon it online yeseterday!
Click HERE for the entire Pandora collection.
If you have a mom, sister, or best friend that has a Pandora bracelet…you can never go wrong adding a charm to her bracelet!
Click HERE for starter sets and look on the left sidebar for a shopping guide.
You can shop by recipient (animal lover, true love, sport fan, travel lover), material (silver, gold,two tone, enamel, etc.) and occasion (ex. birthday, wedding, etc.).
Or, if you’re looking for something a bit “younger”, check out THESE Alex and Ani bracelets that a reader told me about yesterday. I checked them out and they look SO awesome!!!!
Her e-mail follows.
I found something at Nordstrom that I love, love, love, and wanted to pass it along to you.
Alex and Ani bangles.
can get them in silver and gold, wear them stacked or alone, the
reviews are all 5-star, and the price is great! I ordered them for all
my teenage nieces for Christmas! They also have stones and symbols too.
Anyway, thought you might like to check them out.
Thank you Sarah! I love that you could give one or two now, and you could give others in the future that could be added to a stack. I do think this is a PERFECT idea for a gift!
And you’re right, the reviews are AMAZING!!!!
Click HERE if you want to check out the huge selection for yourself!
These would make a spectacular gift.
Now, before we move on to clothes, bags, and shoes… check out THIS cute little set!
Here is one of the reviews:
ordered this trio set of the Marc Jacobs rollerball perfumes and love
all of them! It’s so nice having a few options that you can easily throw
in your purse or bring wherever you need them. They all smell amazing
and it’s nice having the different choices.
On to some clothes!
I posted this outfit yesterday on instagram, and it got a lot of compliments!
The shirt is my new Anthropologie tee (find it HERE, I am wearing a medium), the cardigan is the same maker as the red hooded cardi that my mom got for her birthday (find it HERE, I am wearing a small), and the scarf is the OH SO FAMOUS fringed scarf that all of you ladies are going crazy over (find it HERE)!
I think the scarf (obviously) and the hooded cardigan would both make perfect gifts.
My sister-in-law thinks so too because she commented on ig with this:
I want that hoodie and scarf…Go ahead and gimme…Thank you.
And I’m not mentioning any names here. But somebody that I know has 3 of the scarves. Shay.
And somebody else I know just texted me admitting she didn’t have even one of these scarves and that she was feeling ashamed. Again, I’m not mentioning any names. I don’t want to throw anybody under the bus. Andrea.
When I went shopping for Part 2 of my tunics post, I also managed to try on some other things.
Some of my favorites are below.
I fell in love with this zip up hoodie.
I was excited about the matching pants too, but to be honest, when I put them on they weren’t flattering at all. The pockets were way too bulky.
Still, I’m getting the hoodie in at least 1 color. It’s the perfect thing to throw on around the house.
Click HERE for the hoodie (and see how cute it is paired with sweat shorts).
Maybe that’s what I need!
Click HERE for the entire BP undercover line.
I would love a set with the shorts, but I imagine a teenage girl would too!
(I was wearing a medium in the pink and a large in the grey. I actually preferred the large.)
Back to stuff I tried on.
There’s nothing better than a sweatshirt.
Except maybe a FANCY sweatshirt. 🙂 And a FANCY sweatshirt would be so much fun to give!
Click HERE for the fancy sweatshirt.
(jeans HERE, boots HERE, earrings HERE)
While searching for items online, I also found this lace front tee HERE.
I really love these next two things. ESPECIALLY the Top Shop jacket.
Click HERE for the red t.
Click HERE for the plaid lined jacket.
It’s a great jacket. It’s heavy and seems like it would be pretty warm.
I loved the fit and I really like the hood.
Click HERE for the shirt.
I think this type of shirt is a great look to pair with skinny jeans.
Click HERE for the coat.
It can be long….or the bottom half can zip off to create a cropped jacket.
Check it out.
Hobo bag HERE. Notice the cool zipper detail.
Click HERE for a super similar version of my furry vest.
When Shay saw it she oohd and aahhd.
Like a lot of things with fashion, I laughed at vests like these last year….and this year I want one!
And you know I couldn’t do a post on Christmas presents without mentioning scarves!
Click HERE for a ton of scarves under $22!
(The first 3 are my absolute favorite! I have the first one in a light pink, the middle one in the taupe, and the light leopard one!)
Sure, you could give just one of these scarves as a gift….
but you know what would be SUPER fun?!?
Give a trio of scarves to somebody on your list!!!
Or maybe you should give the gift of TOMS!
Which should also be known as Giving The Gift of COMFORT.
Because HOLY COMFORT batman.
I still can’t believe I’ve only been wearing TOMS for the last 2 years. I don’t know what took me so long to jump on the bandwagon, but I sure am glad I finally did.
Click HERE for all TOMS for ladies.
Click HERE for all TOMS for men.
And while we’re still on the subject of “comfortable”….
At least 5 of you have e-mailed me saying the first time you tried Hanky Panky after my recommendation that you fell hard and that you too want to start slowly replacing all of your undies.
I also received lots of e-mails from those of you that have been wearing them for years!
To you I feel compelled to ask “WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL THE REST OF US SOONER?” 🙂
I do find it funny that many of you have said that you tried Hanky Panky for the first time after getting them as a stocking stuffer! Giving the gift of panties is apparently pretty popular!
So, if that’s something you want to do..
click HERE for some cute Hanky Panky gift sets like this one.
Great bags are always fun to give or receive, and I’m highlighting found 3 at various price points!
red studded Hobo HERE
I’m carrying a red Fossil purse now, and I love the red!
michael kors crossbody HERE
dooney and bourke bag HERE
This is the one I started eyeing way back during the Anniversary Sale! It’s totally gorgeous.
And you guys WON’T BELIEVE THIS…but A TON of Michael Kors watches just went on sale!
There’s over 100 to choose from!
Click HERE for all MK watches!
some gold, some rose gold, some silver, some for men, some for women, some with bling, some without bling
Lots of amazing choices!
THIS one might be my favorite for the ladies.
And I THINK this one is my favorite for guys.
