Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Accessory Edit

Click the “+” sign next to each image to shop! Shoes, handbags, sunglasses and more! That’s my kind of sale. One of my favorite things about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is that it’s one of the longest sales out there. Personally, I try to justify everything I buy [it takes time] so I don’t like weekend only sales. Even though I miss some items on the NSALE from all the over analyzing I do, I’m still able to grab a few great items. Check out my Nordstrom Sale clothing edit HERE and my beauty edit HERE.

On my personal Instagram account, I only followed my friends and family, no one else. No celebs, reality TV stars, actors, authors – I did not follow a soul that I didn’t personally know.

Work Hard and Be Nice

Some of the main issues are coworkers not making each other feel included, people not wanting to work collaboratively and seasoned employees not taking into consideration less experienced employees views. Please don’t take this topic the wrong way, the last thing I want this to sound like is a millennial complaining that people aren’t nice to me. Plus I…
