Hey there, pal. How’s it going? My week has been cray-cray. But regardless of this, I’ve by some means nonetheless managed to hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. LOL!
Ya know, I didn’t actually purchase something magnificence associated. I spent my lunch cash on rebuilding my closet! I did a critical purge some time again and since then have been saving up for wardrobe fundamentals. I purchased tops in impartial colours (together with this white lace high), jackets (a black blazer and a denim moto) and some bralettes. The sale’s nonetheless happening, so in the event you discover one thing you want, seize it earlier than July 31, which is when the sale ends.
Anywho, do you know that whenever you purchase on-line from the Nordstrom web site, you possibly can have your gadgets shipped to a Nordstrom Rack (which is Nordstrom’s chain of “low cost” sister shops)? Oh, and did you additionally know you possibly can return gadgets you purchase at Nordstrom to Nordstrom Rack? I solely realized this not too long ago.
The benefit of that is that in the event you stay near a Nordstrom Rack (there’s one in my city about 10 minutes away from my home), it permits you to make Nordstrom purchases and returns simply. That is each fantastic and harmful for me!
Whereas I used to be at Nordstrom Rack yesterday to select up my Anniversary Sale loot, I got here throughout a show for recycling magnificence merchandise. Nordstrom now has a program known as Nordstrom BEAUTYCYCLE, and so they settle for a number of several types of magnificence packaging for recycling. Very cool!
Let’s see, what else has been happening? I’ve been making a yummy, fast dish for dinner these days — Thai basil shrimp. I bought the thought from this recipe I discovered on Laura within the Kitchen. The unique recipe requires rooster however I simply swap it out for shrimp. I additionally substitute the chili for bell pepper as a result of I don’t like loads of warmth.
I like this meal as a result of it’s quick! If I begin making rice proper earlier than prepping all of the substances, I can get a whole meal carried out in about half-hour.
One factor of notice: shrimp cooks quicker than rooster, so I regulate the time right down to keep away from overcooking the shrimp. Additionally, since we eat gluten-free meals at our home due to El Hub’s wheat allergy, I take advantage of gluten-free soy sauce, oyster sauce and fish sauce, which I purchase at Entire Meals.
Earlier than I am going, this little behavior has been saving me these days! I set alarms all all through my day to remind me to cease and take 10 deep breaths. I’ve been feeling overwhelmed these days and taking the time to breathe and reset undoubtedly helps preserve my sanity.
Anywho, miss ya. Hope issues in your finish of the keyboard are regular and calm.
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
