N-Sale Beauty Tools I Can’t live With Out!

When it comes to beauty tools I can be pretty picky because they are usually pricey and sometimes overhyped or not for my skin type. My favorite place to shop for the higher end beauty tools are during the Nordstrom sale! You can find the greatest deals on quality, highly rated beauty tools and devices.

I’ve compiled a list of items I own and will only be sharing the ones I’ve loved personally and use weekly!

Let’s start off with my #1 most used and loved tool

#1

NuFACE® White Trinity® Anniversary Facial Toning Kit ($325 Value) $217.75

This is my fav because it’s so easy to use! I’ve only been using this kit for about 3 weeks but I already can see a difference in my skins appearance! They have so many amazing before and afters and really high ratings on nordstroms.com. Here is some information I pulled directly from their website.

What it is: An award-winning, multi-solution skin care device designed with innovative interchangeable treatment attachments that help to rejuvenate and improve your appearance.

What it does: The NuFACE Trinity Toning kit comes with the NuFACE Trinity Facial Trainer, a microcurrent treatment attachment that is FDA-cleared for facial stimulation to gently stimulates the larger surface areas of the face. As we age, our body’s natural current begins to slow down (just like our metabolism), leading to sagging skin, loss of contour and wrinkles. Microcurrent mimics this natural current and goes beyond skin deep to tone facial muscles while improving contour and skin tone and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

The kit includes:

– Trinity Device in White

– Trinity Facial Toning (microcurrent attachment)

– Gel Primer (2 oz.)

– Charging Cradle

– Power Adapter

– 1-year warranty

I use this tool 4-5 times a week right now and its a quick 5 min thing right before bed! For this price it’s a steal it will save you on trips on any clinical visits or cosmetic surgery.

SIMPLEHUMAN $134 sale $200 after sale

 

I really love this mirror, its pretty compact and sleek so it doesn’t take up to much counter space. The ease of use is incredible! You only have to walk up and the mirror automatically senses you. You can also adjust the brightness as needed too. The mirror is really magnified so it makes it easy for skin care needs like extractions or tweezing! If you want a more in-depth review check out my Instagram IGTV, I’ve made an unboxing video as well as my first impression.

My hair is super thick so a blow dryer that can dry each layer faster than anything before is something I can’t live without! It’s the best dryer for taming my frizz and flyaways in no time.

What it does: Innovative digitally controlled heat combined with a wide, gentle airstream expertly dries hair quickly while maintaining body and shine. With a powerful built-in ion generator, negative ions smooth the hair cuticle for soft, frizz-free results.

I’m a huge fan of dermaplaning especially when you can save the money and do it yourself in the comfort in your own home. Although I don’t use this exact model, This one is highly rated on Nordstrom and for this price you can’t beat that!

What it is: A facial treatment device that instantly reveals smooth, radiant, camera-ready skin, creating a flawless canvas for skin care and makeup.Who it’s for: All skin types and tones.

DERMAFLASH 2.0 instantly removes dead skin cells, built-up debris, and pesky peachy fuzz and was designed specifically for the delicate skin on your face. It enhances the power of skin care products by erasing the barrier to penetration.

PMD

Another tool to have that will save you $$ and trips to the dermatologist. The before and afters for this tool is amazing! I’m dying to get my hands on this and it’s so reasonably priced!

What it is: An original Microderm device to help you get the benefits of an in-office dermatologist appointment from the comfort of your home.

What it does: This Microderm device provides chemical-free exfoliation that’s 800% deeper than a scrub, taking away hyperpigmentation, scars and reducing acne. Because of the vacuum technology, the body heals beneath the surface, promoting cell turnover while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Research results:

– 85% experienced greater skin elasticity.

– 95% had visibly brighter skin after use.

– 90% achieved more radiant skin with regular use.

Summer Hangs At Chuck E Cheese’s

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Chuck E. Cheese’s. The opinions and text are all mine.

 

I am all about staying active with my kids during the summer because they tend to go crazy when stuck at home for too long. It’s hard to find something my kids both equally enjoy since there is an age gap but Chuck E Cheese’s never fails to make us all happy!

Now things just got sweeter now that they have All You Can Play! All You Can Play lets parents be the hero by giving kids free reign of Chuck E. Cheese’s to play all games as many times as they want. Just choose an amount of time and when your time is up, you’re done. It’s that easy! Or if you need a break, you can pause your time up to two times at the kiosk. It’s endless games for kids starting at $9 for 30 minutes. Talk about the endless fun that won’t break the bank!

I thought this was so brilliant because what kid doesn’t love endless play during their trips to Chuck E Cheese’s! The food and appetizers are so delicious and everything is such a great value. We really love how much fun our kids have and how comfortable we feel letting them roam around in a safe environment to play and explore.

This is also such a great activity to do during your kids breaks its always a blast, it’s indoors and cool, and it doesn’t break the bank like some other indoor activities for kids might.

Don’t forget to sign up for Chuck E. Cheese’s loyalty program, More Cheese Rewards. The more you visit, the more rewards you can earn to use on food, drinks, games, and prizes!

Back To School Style Ideas For Boys-Under $50

I remember getting so excited each year as a kid to pick out new outfits to make my debut into the new school year and now that I am a Mom to boys its gotten a little trickier finding really cute boy looks.

I wanted to write this to inspire other boy moms or caregivers alike to create a fun stylish wardrobe for this upcoming 2018 school year! These are some of my favorites from this years Nordstrom sale and better yet all of these picks are under $50!

Shoes

We all know how expensive shoes can be for kids, I really liked how stylish and functional these options were!

Bottoms

Links: 1. O’Neill Mixed Hybrid Shorts 2. O’Neill Jay Chino Shorts 3. Joe’s Brixton Stretch Jeans 4. Volcom Chino Shorts

Links: 5. Hudson Kids Jude Skinny Jeans 6. Stem Zip Jogger Pants 7. Nike Air Fleece Jogger Pants 8. Tucker + Tate Woven Jogger Pants

When I look for clothes for my boys I always go for comfort over cut and style. Jude always refuses to wear anything he isn’t comfortable in and I can’t blame him for that. Joggers and stretchy denim are major when it comes to bottoms. Also having a good selection of shorts for those warmer days is a must!

Tops

Links: 1. Tucker + Tate Print T-Shirt 2. Treasure & Bond Distressed Plaid Flannel Shirt 3. Tucker + Tate Print Foil T-Shirt 4. Vans Full Patch Graphic T-Shirt

I am really loving the trendy flannels and prints this season in the boys’ department. When you don’t have many options on how to style up your son’s wardrobe try and find subtle prints and colors he’s sure to love!

Outer Wear

Links: 1. Tucker + Tate Hooded Denim Jacket 2. Treasure & Bond Worker Hooded Jacket 3. Stem Two-Tone Hooded Jacket 4. Treasure & Bond Tie Dye Pullover

 

Although it’s still hot when school starts I’m usually buying Jude’s outerwear now when things are on major sale at Nordstroms. You can never go wrong with a denim jacket and better yet this one has a hood! I am also loving the muted colors, fluffy sweaters (if your son lets you put fluffy on him), and heavy canvas coats they make perfect staples for fall and winter!

Character Favorites

Links: 1. Jem Spider-Man Embossed Hoodie 2. J.Crew Dino Graphic T-Shirt 3. Jem Mickey Mouse T-Shirt 4. Jem Nintendo Mario® Print T-Shirt

What kid doesn’t appreciate wearing their favorite character?! Although it’s rare when I find cute and unique items with Jude’s favorite characters I do like to make him happy with a couple pieces. Nordstrom has really cute prints I’m sure will make your kids happy!

Accessories

Links: 1. Adidas Originals Santiago Backpack 2. Munki Munki x Star Wars Fitted Two-Piece Pajamas 3. 7 A.M. Enfant Dino Water Repellent Mini Backpack 4. Tucker + Tate 5-Pack Trunks

I added some back to school accessories like these cool and unique backpacks I’m sure not many kids will be sporting this year and these briefs and PJs set because they are such a good deal right now on Nordstrom.com.

Hope you enjoyed my back to school picks for boys!
