150 150 Angela Lanter

Tomorrow begins Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I know that every single blogger and their mother are talking about this sale, so if you’re tired of hearing about it… I get it.  I really do.  But before you click off of this post, I just  wanted to give you a head’s up that there will be a very special surprise coming for my Gorgeous Girls tomorrow, so don’t miss out!  Be sure to check back for tomorrow’s post so you can be in the know.  Okay, if you want to do something other than read about the sale, how about watching this throwback video of mine and having a giggle or two, lol.

If you’ve been living under an internet rock and you have no idea what this Nordstrom sale I speak of is…  Then feel free to read this blog post to be caught up to speed in a jiffy.

Last year I scored most of the items I wanted in the Early Access Sale.  There were quite a few pieces that I still wear to this day.  In fact, I purchase my favorite pair of skinny jeans during that sale.

Everything I’m wearing in this photo was a part of the sale last summer.

This is the best time of year to stock up your Fall and Winter wardrobe with the latest styles without breaking the bank.  In true fanatic shopper fashion, I went through and grabbed a few of the pieces I’m going to keep my eye out for when the sale goes live on 7/13.  Here’s a quick list of the pieces that caught my eye so far.

As you can see, there are some great products to choose from!  I’m going to be FLYING to the Uggs because I live in my Ugg boots in the winter and am in desperate need of a new pair.  My current pair are at least 10 years old and I’ve literally worn the heel down!  I also will be snatching up all sorts of tops, sweaters and shoes.  I’m really hoping my beloved AG Skinny Jeans are on sale again this year because they were hands down my best purchase last sale!

What will you be looking to grab this sale?  Let me know in the comments if there is anything special you’d like to see me blog from the sale.  I will be shopping in store and I’m thinking about snapping iPhone photos from the fitting room to show how things look.  Let me know if you like this idea and if you think I should do this on Instagram Stories or on SnapChat?

Happy Wednesday!

Amazon Prime Day Deals are Here!

It’s Matt’s favortie sale day of he year…  It’s Amazon Prime Day!  If you caught yesterday’s post, then you know how much the Lanter house uses Amazon Prime and you know what our favorite products to shop for are.  Today some of our favorite past Amazon purchases, and some we plan to purchase today, are available for great prices!

Amazon Prime Day Sales Angela Lanter


iRobot Roomba Vacuum:  I first learned about these magic little robotic housekeepers when my Mawmaw got one years ago.  We now own two of them and I’m obsessed.  The one word of warning, if you have white walls or white trim, the robot will hit them and leave behind marks.  Matt remedied that by adding some foam on the outside of the robot so when it hits the walls there’s no evidence left.  You’ll save $125 today!

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker:  We purchased this speaker two summers ago in Alabama and we still use it on basically an every day basis.  The sound output is incredible and the bass is deep.  We use it around the pool or I carry it around the house while I’m doing work, listening to music or podcasts.  You’ll save $70 today!

Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Cleansing Brush:  I’ve been a Clarisonic user for years.  In fact, I purchased my Mia 2 while we were living in New Orleans 4 years ago…  And that baby is still going strong!  If you want to see how I use my brush in my everyday skincare routine, check out my Get Unready With Me video.  Today you’ll save $59!

Makeup Eraser:  Another product I use on the regular and I talked about in my Unready with Me video is my Makeup Eraser.  I love it so much that I bought one for both my mom and my mother-in-law!

Calvin Klein Undies:  My favorite underwear hands-down are my CKs.  I’ve become so spoiled by them that it’s one of the only brands of undies I’ll now buy.  I talked all about them in my underwear blog post.  The problem is…  They’re not cheap.  Today these undies are 30% off at checkout!

Our Favorite Things to Buy from Amazon

150 150 Angela Lanter

Matt and I have been members of Amazon Prime for years now.  I’ve become totally dependent on my membership and use it for multiple things around my house and in my life on the regular.  In honor of Amazon Prime Day tomorrow, I thought I’d create a really fun post about the things we Lanters regularly depend on Amazon for.

First up, beauty.  As you all know (maybe all too well) I’m a huge fan of Korean skincare.  Unfortunately, Korean skincare products aren’t readily available at your local drugstore here in LA.  When I take my annual trek to Koreatown for a beauty raid, I stand in the aisles for what seems like hours trying to decipher what each product is and what it does.  Shopping these products online may not be as fun (hello, you can smell or test them!) but there are reviews for most products in English.  That’s actually how I first discovered and tried Laneige, and y’all know what a fan of that brand I am!

Amazon Beauty Faves:

Matt uses Amazon to purchase mostly electronics and camera gear for our home and business.  His big purchases, such as lenses, typically come from B&H Photo.  Day-to-day type product, such as clips, paper backgrounds, memory cards and various other accessories all typically come from Prime.  Electronics are to Matt what makeup is to me.  Needless to say, we have a lot of electronics and accessories in our house.

Another normal purchase for us is our coffee.  We both prefer low acid coffee due to heartburn, so lately we have been using Tieman’s Fusion Coffee.  We both are happy to report no heartburn since we’ve been drinking this coffee!

When I have a particular fashion piece I’m looking for, I find that I often have good luck shopping on Amazon.  I’ve been in the market for a pair of pink Nikes and found this awesome pair recently.

I buy most of our vitamins also from Prime.  I hate standing in the vitamin aisle at Whole Foods staring blankly at hundreds of bottles not knowing which one to pick.  Again, I prefer shopping online for supplements because I can read reviews before pulling the trigger.

Travel products are another must buy on Prime for me.  I recently purchased a few travel organizer products to help me travel more efficiently.  I ordered this compression system to help to keep my clothes wrinkle free while maximizing my suitcase space.  I also ordered an undergarments bag, pill travel case and a dirty laundry bag.  I hate traveling home and mixing our dirty clothes with our clean clothes, so I’m hoping our next trip to the beach will be much more organized.
