My Favorite Dating Apps and Why + Lili Alessandra Nordstrom Giveaway

My Favorite Dating Apps | Best Free Dating Apps | What to Wear on a First Date this Fall via lifestyle blogger, Glitter & Spice

I meant to post yesterday. And I meant to post this earlier. But guess who has not one but TWO broken A/C units currently? THIS GIRL. Oh and it’s the hottest Dallas has been in about 100 years (but actually). So that’s great.

Obviously I’m not wearing this look in this weather. Instead, I’m stuck here dreaming of cooler temperatures. During which I can finally wear this gorgeous coat. BTW it’s included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (as is the rest of this look) andddd that same sale is now open to all who wish to shop it (cue the yay’s!).

Okay before we get carried away: this look is exactly what I would wear on a date this fall. Like I might wear this exact look in fact. And how shall I meet said date? By perusing my favorite dating apps, of course!

Why You Should Take Breaks from Blogging by veteran fashion & travel blogger, Glitter & Spice

Guess who forgot to click “schedule” on her blog post last night?

So today, I’m going to share not only why you can but also why you should take breaks from blogging.

What to Buy on Prime Day 2018 (and What I Bought!)

Best Amazon Prime Day 2018 Deals | What to Buy on Amazon Prime Day | Best Dresses on Sale Right Now via fashion blogger Glitter & Spice

Happy Amazon Prime Day! The deals launched yesterday at noon Pacific time (2PM Central)… and since I wrote this blog post last night at around 8:30PM, there are probably a whooooole lotta deals I’m missing in my roundup that launched while I was sleeping! You can shop all of the deals by clicking here. Andddd you can shop the rest of my picks (again, all sourced last night so I might be missing a few!) here.

Before we dive in: you might recognize the location for today’s photos. Yep, these photos were taken when I went to Versailles last month. Why am I posting a LOFT dress taken at Versailles for Amazon Prime Day? Because today’s pretty much the closest I get to feeling like a pretty pretty princess / a big spender all year.

Vacuum? Add to cart. New TV? Pish posh, let’s do it – it’s basically free. Okay that brings my total to about 40% less than I had budgeted… so let’s grab a few more things BECAUSE WE CAN.

Or is that not how y’all shop?

What to Buy in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (and What’s on My Wishlist)

What to Buy in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (and What's on My Wishlist) by Dallas fashion blogger, Glitter & Spice

Okay. I’m only 12 hours behind schedule. No big deal.

In case you haven’t been on Instagram at all today, today marks the beginning of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. That’s right, friends: if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you can now shop the sale via Early Access. If you’re not a cardholder, don’t fret: you’ll be able to shop the sale starting on July 20th! (just make sure you bookmark this post so you can refer to it later!)

I spent the majority of yesterday shopping the sale early and photographing all of my purchases to share with y’all over the coming weeks. And then today has been filled with me attempting to balance back-to-back appointments with one of the busiest shopping days of the year. To help y’all out, I went through every single page of the sale and saved everything I think you should buy in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (or at least consider) so y’all can shop it on your own time in the coming weeks.
