NSale Purchases

Hi Foxy Friends! Well that was a longer break than intended! Summer has me running all over the place. But I couldn't pass up tradition and not tell you what I got at the #NSale. Truth be told, I only got the nordstrom card so I could have early access and then guess who didn't realize the Nsale was happening and got it on the last day of early access. Darn it! Oh well, there is always next year!  I've gotten a few things, and so far I haven't kept anything.

Oh and as of right now, 11pm PDT Tuesday night, everything I mention right now is still in stock.

This sweater is so darn cute, but looks like I am wearing a whole sheep, it comes up so far on my face it looks like I'm getting ready to hunker down for a 10 year winter. Returned.

I also got a couple of sweaters to try out. I need a new sweater like a need a hole in my head, but they were calling my name...really they were. I wanted a light weight sweater to wear to the gym, and all of mine are dark colors, I really wanted a lighter color. I also got another cardigan for work, I have a maroon one that I wear all the time, and this one comes pretty close to it.

Speaking of outter layers, for someone who can really only wear them 2.5 (and that is stretching it) of the year, I really do own too many jackets and sweaters. But I almost always add a couple during the sale, I'm hoping this really work out, and they were super reasonably priced too. I love the drappy-ness of this jacket, I have a similar one that is grey, so of course I need a black one too. I don't have a faux suede jacket, so of course I had to get that one too. Both in black, oops!

I got this shirt in two colors, a black and a stripe and both of them are see through. No joke, I held it up to my face and my son said, I can see your face through your shirt. Then when I put it on, it was so wide, I could probably fit my whole body through the go. Both returned.

I'm on the hunt for a pair of black pants to replace the super comfortable black pants I already own...Hoping this or this one works out. But if all else fails, the camo will make me feel better right? Loving the lighter camo look.

I have to admit that the shoe selection was a bit disappointing. I usually get a few pairs, but this time I only got two. I got these boots. I always have problems with knee high boots, but these are so cute and they came in wide calf, all measurements seem like they will fit, fingers crossed.

The other pair was a pair of Vans, like I need another pair of slip on shoes, but hey, I can't say no to polka dots.

I  also got a few pairs of no show socks. I'm really hoping these work, currently I wear no socks with slip ons, but sometimes you just want some socks ya know? I got these, these and these. I hope they work out! 

And an honorable mention, this cute bralette is price matched, currently 30% off, making it $26. It's the one everyone is wearing and is oh so cute. I can see it with some rompers now.

Okay that is really everything I bought. Typically I end up returning about half, but I really hope it all works out! Okay, I don't really need both jackets, so I'll probably choose one and return the other. Othe than that, I really hope it all stays! I'll keep you posted.

What's in your shopping cart? Anything else that I need to get?

Prime Purchases

Last year I saw Andrea post her favorite Prime Purchases, and she was linking up to Tayna who hosts the link up. Super fun, right? You see what I'm buying that I don't need/purchasing and we all get to then want to buy all the things, keeping the economy going right there. Click here to see my past purchases. Okay let's get started! Okay this is a day late, but hey I got it out right?

So I know this is totally touristy and all, but I notice whenever we're on a vacation where there is a lot of sitting around at the pool, I never take pictures, because don't want to ruin my phone. So I bought these, I got one, in Magenta. Then Mr. said he might as well get one too. He was pretty sure his phone was water resistant, but didn't want to take the chance, at under $10 worth it to buy now than pay the resort prices.

Before school ended I bought Baby Fox this workbook, I've bought them the last 2 years, I've typically bought the year he was going into, this year was no different. I bought the 3rd grade math book. Well the 3rd grade math book assumes you've gone through 3rd grade, makes sense, but most of it is Multiplication! Oops, Baby Fox knows the mechanics behind what it is, but doesn't know it. When I saw Lindsay bought these for her son, I knew they were perfect, so I grabbed some too. They came in the mail day before yesterday and he's obsessed. We spend a lot of time in the car, so he's going to practice in the car probably.

 Baby Fox also wants to learn cursive before he gets to 3rd grade, so we got him this book. It's great because it has you practice the letters and then to practice writing the letters together they have you write bible verses and at the end of the book, there are some fancier pages so you can give the pages to family and friends, which I think is cute.

We're headed to Hawaii with some friends, and we decided we wanted to make tie dye shirts...I bought this tie die, the reviews are pretty good, I'll get back to you on how it works and how many shirts we get out of it. We're making them tonight!

Baby Fox went to his first real all day camp a couple of weeks ago, and they were making lanyards, do you remember those plastics things you use to make as a kid? Well it stands the test of time, because Baby Fox is obsessed and wanted me to get him some, I'm surprising him with some for our trip. It's a long flight.


Baby Fox loves reading, he saw this book at a friends and wanted it, it took him 2 days to read.


I finally jumped on the packing cube train! I bought two sets of these. I was able to use them and pack Mr. for an 8 day trip in a carry on suitcase. See that recap here.

Last thing, well not really I got a bunch of random stuff I'm sure no one else has any interest in...but I love these headphones. They're cheap so if you loose them, not a huge deal. The last pair I bought on Amazon Day, so it lasted a good 11 months, pretty good, considering I use them at least 3 times a week. 

So that is what I've been buying lately. Truth be told most of these things were bought in the last 10 days. I know so bad! In case you wanted to know:

We bought this dental floss, this shampoo,  this respirator filter, and this vacuum cleaner filter

So what have you been buying lately? Anything I NEED?
