To be honest, there is a lot of hype created around the Nordstrom sale because it is a great way for bloggers to make a commission off your purchases.  But I am not going to sit here and tell you that you need to spend thousands of dollars on things you don’t really need.  I do however want to share some of my favorite products in each category should you be in the market for that item.

So today we are talking beauty which I think has some of the best deals in the sale because beauty product typically don’t ever get marked down.  Plus, we all need essentials like a good exfoliator and skincare set.  The other items on this list are items you may not splurge on at regular price (like a T3 hairdryer), but when it’s on sale it is simply too good to resist.  Last year, this silk pillow case was the best seller on our beauty round up and its a favorite product with team HoH, as well! I also bought this Nude Lip Set in last years sale and have restocked it since – Pillow Talk is a cult favorite and now my personal favorite, as well!

The sale opens to the public tomorrow if you aren’t a card holder (like me)!  Don’t miss our clothes + accessories round-up from this post!

My day to day schedule is usually jam-packed from the minute I get woken up by Andrew (our early riser). I start my mornings by getting myself and the boys ready, followed by taking them to school or leaving them to play with our babysitter, devoting a solid 5 hours to work, picking the boys up and spending quality time with them and FMK until it’s lights out. If I’m being completely honest, this tight schedule doesn’t always leave time for me to wash, blow dry, and style my hair. I’ve been exploring products and methods for going longer in between washes, and when I heard about the new detoxing Pantene Charcoal Collection, I was excited to try it out. Side note, you may have seen my recent post about activated charcoal and how it’s the new beauty and wellness trend that everyone is talking about, so needless to say – they had me at ‘charcoal’!

I decided to round up my favorite beauty tricks and products that are helping me go longer in between washes, because I know many of you are on similar crazy busy schedules! Read on below for my full list of tips.

Have you ever showed up at your travel destination with half of your closet in a giant suitcase but still had no idea what to wear? Or worse, has your luggage ever been lost in transit leaving you to make do with the clothes you wore on the plane? I’ve experienced both (including lost luggage during our honeymoon last month), which has converted me into a carry-on traveler. As many of you know, Caroline’s dad is a commercial airline pilot and she grew up exclusively packing a carry-on so that she could fly stand-by. Between the two of us, we’ve developed efficient packing tips to be sure our luggage gets to where it’s supposed to, and contains exactly what we need without an overwhelming assortment of “maybe this will come in handy”. Read on below for 10 helpful packing hacks to take into account next time you’re jet-setting!
