Hey and Happy Friday! I've been struck down with my first cold of the Summer the last couple days, but woke up feeling the best I've felt since it came on. There's something very counterintuitive about a cold when it's very hot outside! While nobody likes to feel sick, I'm thankful for the couple days of rest -- it seems like my body needed me to slow down for a minute. We have a couple of things planned this weekend, so I'm hoping that I continue to feel better as the day goes on!

Today is the first day of "public access" for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Are you shopping? If so, you can check out this postthis post and my picks to see what I picked up from the sale. I was hoping they would restock a few items that I wasn't able to get my hands on during Early Access, but am not seeing them yet. These booties are still available, by some miracle!

EA Summer Sale is happening now! 20% off your order with code SUMMER, through Sunday. You can shop the sale here.

Love this setup.

I've received a few questions about whether or not I'm still using this natural deodorant and what I think. Yes, I've been using it ever since I ordered it back in May. I really like it! It took a couple weeks for my body to adjust to a natural vs. chemical-ridden deodorant, but after that, it's been great. I never had an issue with odor, but had a few "wet" days. It smells so good and my underarms feel so smooth and soft now.

I've been wearing this lipstick in the shade blankety a lot lately and really like it. It's the perfect pinky nude!

Have a great weekend!
