With the Nordstrom Sale, Prime Day, and Target's Day of Deals, it feels like Christmas in July!

 This post is going to focus mainly on Prime Day and some of my Amazon favorites that are included in the sale. If you are anything like me, Amazon delivers a package to your house a few times per week! Prime 2-day shipping has been such game changer for me being a busy working mom. From paper towels to Christmas shopping I use it for everything!

Amazon Prime Day is now actually, 2 days! The sale begins July 15th at 12am PST and runs for the next 2 days. Prime Day offers discounts exclusively for Prime members, that rival (and sometimes exceed) Black Friday sales! Deals come in a variety of ways:
  • Lightning Deals - These sales are promotions for individual items. They typically  have a quick offering time span (a few hours) and are normally available until they are all claimed. They appear very frequently!
  • Spotlight Deals - These sales typically last a bit longer and have more inventory! 
  • Miscellaneous other deals - so many! 
I will be sharing deals and offerings here as well as in Instagram Stories! I will try to include clothing, kids clothes, home, kitchen, beauty, etc! See below to shop some of my favorite items included in the Prime Day sale!

As promised, here is the second round of "best of" for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I am sharing the following categories: girl's clothing, beauty and home. I thought these were all reeeeallly good!! 
This is a great time to stock up on back to new sneakers for the kids! I got the girls sneakers from the nsale last year. Another great spot to check out is Nordstrom Rack for discounted Adidas for kids.
the toddler velcro version of the sneakers above! 
Mini Melissa's are our favorite shoes! They smell amazing and are comfortable dressy shoes! 
this bootie is so cute! i love the tiny heel and perforation. 
A great, super cozy layer! Love this soft pink color too! 
Such a cute and warm jacket option for winter. It is water repellent. 
This is such a great deal for a Patagonia jacket! Love the little animal ears! 
Patagonia doesn't go on sale often and I love this fleece! 
Really versatile leggings! Love the material :)
Love the hem of these jeans - so different than most kids jeans! I also loved these Joe's Jeans for $26! 
this fleece is $80 full price and rarely goes on sale. even at my north face outlet, I could not find a fleece like this for a better price. 
I have the adult version of this coat and it is WARM! Love that it is several jackets in one. 
I got this for both girls and they FREAKED out when they saw it - they wouldn't take them off, ha! I sized up to a 4 and a 7 for them so they will last longer :)
I also got this for the girls. I got Avery the cheetah and Charlotte the polka dot! I sized up for both again so they can be worn longer. Pair with leggings or jeans. 
This tunic is adorable! I love the little ruffle detail in addition to the polka dot
This is a great layering piece to wear all fall and winter! I love the hoodie & peplum together 

 3 piece lip set that has a cult following! Every time I try to buy it, it is sold out, ha! Definitely trying to get this set! 
Another great lip trio option for a nude lip!
I've never used this but have heard amazing things about Kiehls hair products! This will last a LONG time! 
Living Proof sells some of my favorite products and these full size sets are a great deal if you love them too! 
These are two of the prettiest shades! 
Anastasia makes the best eyebrow products and this duo has the brow pencil and clear eyebrow gel! 
 I have been using Supergoop sunscreen forever and love that it is antioxidant infused
Hydration is key especially in fall/winter! This set is an $84 value for $42.
I travel with the Mario Badescu spray at all times! It is great for refreshing skin, setting makeup, etc! 
When I heard Cassie from the Bachelor say she used Paula's Choice for her glowing skin, I knew that I wanted to try it! 
This is the curling iron that I use daily and love it! It makes it easy to use as a curling iron or wand. 

Literally the softest blanket EVER! Cult following and will sell out fast! This also makes a great gift.
A great price and love this luxe color! 
I have my eye on this for Charlotte's room! Love the pink and grey. 
So pretty and soft! Love this creamy white. 
Kris and I started using essential oils last year and a pretty diffuser that works is key! Love this one.

Affordable Summer Date Outfit

Hello! Happy Monday! We had a fun but busy weekend with our company family picnic and a friend's birthday party.  I think the girls may have bounced in bounce houses for about 5 hours combined this weekend, ha! 
{affiliate links are used in this post}
Today I am so excited to be partnering with Walmart again in their We Dress America campaign to share a casual summer date night look with you! If you have been here for a while you know that I  am a fan of Walmart fashion, and their recent collections are so on point! I have been impressed by how on trend and unique their pieces are. Great, flattering, fit is also really important to me when sharing items with you all and this recent Walmart order was a total win in that department. Aaaannd lastly, I can't believe that each piece that I'm sharing today is under $25! 

Kris and I love date nights. Getting uninterrupted time together is so wonderful!  We used to do more dressy dates, but as parents now we normally like to eat a great dinner together or go to the movies! So I am always in need of a casual but cute date night look - Walmart was to rescue with this whole outfit! 


These high waisted jeans are SO incredibly flattering! They are called the Rosa ripped curve hem jean and have the best fit! They have stretch that flatters but this pair also holds their fit after wearing them for a while. I ordered my normal size 4 and was happy that I did - they definitely fit true to size! High waists in jeans are essential for me (especially after having the girls) and this rise is about 10.5 inches. I was personally looking for a dressier looking jean with a darker wash, but these jeans also come in a lighter blue denim wash! They are $24.50 full price - such a value! 


 I paired these jeans with the cutest flirty top! It is primarily cotton making it light and breathable for summer. I love that this top has a tiered ruffle giving it great movement and a slightly cropped length! It also has two styling options - 1) tie the top strap around your neck as a halter top, or 2) hide the halter tie and turn it into a tube top! Both are great ways to wear this cute shirt. I ordered size medium which is my normal size, so it is also true to size. This top also comes in light blue option. Both tops are on sale for $14.50 right now!


My shoes and straw bag aren't from the Sofia collection, but they are from Walmart. My straw bag is such a fun shape and has a drawstring/snap closure. It is lined on the inside and is on sale for $11! These $21 black sandals are comfortable and are made from vegan material (size up half if you go between)!

Thank you so much to Walmart and Rewardstyle for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own and I selected all of these items to share with you. 



Travel Guide: Summer in New York City with Kids

Last weekend, my oldest daughter Avery and I left for her first trip to New York City! We traveled with Kris' mom, sister and our niece. It was such a fun trip that was totally geared towards the girls who are both 6. I lived in Manhattan during my early 20's so it has been a while (ha!) since I've spent time in the city and it was so wonderful! I have always loved the energy and opportunity that exists in New York. We planned a full weekend for the girls and I wanted to share it here. I will share our travel schedule, what I thought about each stop and then our outfit details! 

We left Fort Lauderdale on Thursday morning and made our way to Laguardia airport in New York. Avery was sooo excited to fly - especially on a plane with television, ha! We thankfully had super easy travel and made it to New York by mid-afternoon. 

Avery's travel outfit: dress // shoes // jacket // strawberry purse // pom pom bow

We spent the weekend at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Times Square. It was the perfect location because two of the nights that we stayed in New York, we went to Broadway shows. It made it easy to walk to and from shows later at night. We ate a quick dinner at the hotel and walked over to our first Broadway show - Aladdin the Musical. Oh my goodness, it was AMAZING! The singing and acting were both phenomenal and Avery and I both loved the Genie in particular! At intermission they brought the magic lamp out for photos and Avery was so excited to get to see it up close!

The next morning we got up early and ventured out to the Natural History Museum. I hadn't been there since a 6th grade field trip but I knew that I wanted to take Avery. She is really interested in dinosaurs at the moment and this is the perfect spot for that! What's better is that friends of ours from Florida happened to be in New York at the same time and we were all able to meet up for the morning! We were able to explore several exhibits including all of the dinosaur rooms! They have a children's discovery room that was closed for a special event, but I think it would have been so fun to do! 


We had lunch reservations at 1pm up town, so we hailed a cab (Avery did it actually!)  and headed in that direction. 

We ate at one of our favorites, Serendipity! Avery was in awe of their unique decor and oversized meal options! Their desserts are amazing - especially the frozen hot chocolate! You definitely want to make a reservation here. It is always in demand and the restaurant size isn't huge. 


Then, since we clearly did not have enough sugar (ha!) we walked down the street to Dylan's Candy Bar. It was a whole experience; not just a candy store. Avery had the time of her life there including hitting the photo booth! 


Before heading back to the hotel, Mimi and I took Avery to do some shopping at Bloomingdales! She had so much fun looking around in the huge flagship store and doing a fashion show for Mimi and mom! We found some really cute dresses for her since she again grew out of most of her wardrobe! 


That night we headed back to the hotel and met up with Kris' sister and our niece who had just arrived in New York due to travel delays. We got dressed up and walked over to a restaurant called Chazz Palminteri which had such delicious Italian food! 

Avery's outfit: rainbow sequin dress // shoes // bag

The next day was probably our busiest! We started our morning at Rockefeller Center. It is such an iconic part of New York; I would love to take the girls there at Christmas time! We went to  FAO Schwarz for the first time since its old location closed and thsi new one opened. It was so fun because it was a wide variety of not only their brand of products but others as well. Avery's favorite parts were the giant piano from the movie Big, and the Build a Bear workshop!  



Avery's build a bear was a light fury from the movie, How To Train Your Dragon! 

After FAO Schwarz we took a cab uptown and took a short carriage ride (about 20 minutes) around Central Park! We asked the cab to drop us off at the Plaza Hotel and the carriage rides are right next door to that hotel on the park side. Avery's favorite moment of the day was being able to pet the horse! 



After our carriage ride, we walked over to The Trolls Experience! My friend Michelle from Modern Boca Mom recommended this to me and she was so right! It was about a 30 minute interactive experience that involves a dance party, trolls photo ops, interactive games and a Poppy Meet and Greet! 


That afternoon we had tea at the iconic Plaza Hotel. It is so sweet because they have an "Eloise at the Plaza" tea experience for kids. Avery felt oh so fancy and had her first sip of tea! The children's tea trays had peanut butter & jelly, cotton candy and all sorts of other things that Avery loved! We stopped by the Eloise store afterwards in the Palm Court at the bottom level of the hotel. It is SO precious and they have some spaces for the kids to play! I felt like the merchandise was reallly expensive, but still super cute. 




That night we had an early show to see Frozen so we quickly changed at the hotel and headed off to the theater! The Frozen show was also such hit! Kris' mom got us incredible seats and Avery decided that she wants to be on Broadway one day! 

Avery's outfit: dress // jean jacket / shoes


Our last day. It was so sad to go, but we were also ready to get home to Kris and Charlotte! We packed up and went down to Battery Park for the morning. The girls learned about the Statue of Liberty this year in Kindergarten and they were able to see it from Battery Park! We also rode on the Sea Glass Carousel, which was so fun! The carousel rides look like sea glass and are in the shapes of fish and shells. It was the perfect ending to an amazing trip! I can't wait to come back with BOTH girls when Charlotte is a little bit older!
