Today is one of our favorite days of the year, watermelon, the smell of hamburgers on the grill, and a picnic at the park. I still can’t believe this marks our second summer in California. It has been a whirlwind, but I’m grateful for the endless summer and new friendships we have made here easing the distance from family. So grateful!

5 Things I love about Summer

1 the beach – a no brainer. Manhattan Beach is our favorite! 2 the pool is so chill and no sand clean-up! 3 cold drinks like kombucha and matcha with boba taste especially good when it’s super hot out. 4 Ice cream, we love scoops in Highland Park! 5 Dressing for 4th of July – I love all things red, white, and blue

5 Things I’m loving at Nordstrom Rack:

1 kids flipflops and shoes (A friend of mine told me Nordstrom Rack is the best value for kids shoes, and she was right! Stock up on snow boots)  2. Anything FRAME 3. VINCE 4. RAG & BONE 5. Denim Shorts

Who doesn’t love a good Summer top under $40?  I’m loving this floral off the shoulder top with bell sleeves. We brought all the kids to Nordstrom Rack for some tops for me and work pants for Reid. Miraculously, we only left with 4 impulse buys and one fidget spinner. I was so proud of ourselves. We celebrated over guac, chips and burritos. If you’re on the fence, both my tops I linked below are under $40, and at that price, I’m not stressing about the green tea I spilled on them.


Happy Tuesday!

Nordstrom Rack has beautiful essentials and many of my favorite brands at a discount. Think ruffles, gold earrings, flare jeans, and chic sandals. I love that this red ruffle blouse can be dressed up or down with white jeans or white pants. Options are key when my Monday often requires a blouse to transition from school drop-off to meetings to date night. Thankfully, Nordstrom Rack is a one-stop-shop for cute basics for the whole family. A friend told me about their mini Hunter boots and cute tops for my girls. So cute! See here my previous post with Nordstrom Rack. My advice is act fast to secure your size.

Once a week we go on a day date which involves running errands to places like Home Depot and then rewarding ourselves with our new obsession: iced green boba tea. It’s sort of my new favorite date despite the extra long time spent staring at 2×4’s at Home Depot. Occasionally, I switch up this cute lace off the shoulder dress by wearing it as a tunic. I found it at Nordstrom Rack, which you gotta love as a go-to destination for affordable basics. They have a great selection and carry some of my favorite brands like rag + bone. You just have to shop fast because things sell out fast. And if you’ve followed me for a while, you know my favorite combination is rips, lace and nude sandals. Thankfully, I can always find at least one of those at the Rack. After all, you look best in what you FEEL like wearing.

If you’re a mom like me with a newly minted 1 year old, putting on makeup just isn’t what it used to be. I put mascara on one-handed, curling my lashes is also done one-handed, and my new bronzer has already been dropped and cracked. Sad face.

Alas, it is just not the same as it used to be. But might I add it has never been this fun? Levi brings a whole new level of joy to the mundane. And with that includes his wonder and excitement over my makeup brushes, chewing on my Givenchy eye pencil, allowing me to brush his cheeks as he hurls in giggles and belly laughs. Definitely not boring.

Now, the super mom skills come in when baby is on the hip, and you’re actually able to apply some makeup, and not look like Count Dracula. Didn’t I say skills? All that to say, my makeup and beauty routine has been abridged over the years. These items have been favorites as of late:

Givenchy Bronzer – Love this bronzer so much because it goes on very light. I try not to have too heavy of a hand when it comes to bronzer, so if you like it to be there but not like, REALLY there, this is a great option for you. The color is also really great and would go well with a lot of different skin tones in my opinion. Pro tip: Apply on your cheekbones, forehead and jawbone for that I-just got-back-from-St-Tropez look.

Givenchy Eyeliner – Levi loves to play with this, but so does mommy! I would definitely recommend this pencil if you’re needing some precision. It would be great for someone who likes to line the waterline or rock a super sleek cat eye.

Chanel perfume – This perfume smells amazing! It is more musky than flowery, which is my ideal perfume. I’m not a fan of anything with either a vanilla scent or too much of a floral scent. Pro tip: spray some in your hair before a night out. So glam!

Have you tried any of these? I’d love to hear.

What are your plans for the Fourth? The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. good food, friends, and a chilly evening watching the fireworks. And maybe a day to sleep in? Levi hasn’t been the greatest sleeper but maybe he too will get the hint that its a holiday weekend. 2 years ago we went to the San Marino fireworks display at Lacy Park. While it was beautiful, scenic and fun to be with friends, never again! One of our friend’s daughter went missing and it was too many people to keep track of our then 4 children. So since last year, we started a tradition of watching the fireworks at Lake Arrowhead. Some of you know we have an A Frame we renovated here that we rent out. This year, we look forward to 4 days of clean mountain air at Lake Arrowhead. We can’t wait! Let’s transition to an upcoming sale in 11 days!!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

It is a HUGE sale on Fall new arrivals. Those who have the card, get “early access” because hot items always sell out first. Everything from booties to coats are up to 40% off. I still have these rag + bone booties I got from the sale 40% off retail that I still wear and LOVE. HERE is a sneak peek of the sale.

Don’t forget, my shop page is open 24/7, you can follow me on the free app “shalicenoel” for quick links, and you can always “shop my instagrams.”

Also, FYI start preparing now for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! 1. Become a cardholder. I did this 2 years ago just to enter the sale early access and I’m SO glad I did. Sign up now for a $60 note! That is basically free money and a gift card to spend on whatever. Like that La Mer lotion you’ve been eying. 2. This sale is on NEW ARRIVALS. That is why this sale is SUCH A BIG DEAL. I literally get butterflies in my stomach nervous happy just thinking about it. It begins July 12, and be sure to follow my newsletter, Instagram and blog. I will aim to publish my blog post will my favorites from the sale from beauty devices to best in sale heels, boots and flats, at 12:30am, July 12. I don’t sleep much that day, haha. But it’s worth it. I still love the rag + bone boots I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale about 40% off retail. Now that’s worth a little loss of sleep.

Am I the only one who can’t believe that it’s almost Memorial Day? We will probably go to the beach. What are your plans?

We’re getting ready to go up to the lake. I would be lying if I loved packing up the car and 5 little people. Girls, it is hard work and I NO FAIL forget something EVERY time. Why? Other than that, I love the fresh clean air, coffee on the deck, hanging out with the kids, and spotty cell service. Yes, sometimes it is a blessing in disguise. Enjoy these moments we will never get back, Happy 4th of July!
