Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

screen-shot-2015-07-11-at-9-57-05-pm.png

Every summer I get so excited for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! My mom and I shop the sale every year together. Last year I shared a few of my favorite deals, so I thought I would do the same thing this year!

For those who don’t know about the anniversary sale- every year Nordstrom releases all of their Fall items, and they are marked down for a limited time. It makes sense to buy the items you would be getting in the fall when they are tremendously marked down!

Beauty Blender

The beauty blender is a very popular beauty tool that many celebrities use! I got a beauty blender a few years ago and I LOVE mine! Usually one costs over $20 but now you can get two for only $35! If you have been wanting a beauty blender, now is the time!

You guys know how much I love going to talk show tapings. Well it’s even more fun with friends! On Tuesday I met two of my best friends in the city and we went to The View! So fun!

After the taping finished, I suggested we go to Black Tap for their famous milkshakes!

Chicken Nachos Recipe

Chicken Nachos.png

Before we get to the post today, make sure to enter the giveaway I’m having this week! Click HERE to enter.

So what are we talking about today? Good question! Today I am sharing an amazing Chicken Nacho recipe. I’ve had plenty of nachos in my life, but this recipe beats all!

IMG_1148

Ingredients:

2 tomatoes- cut up into dices

1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

3/4 cup canned jalapeno slices

2 scallions- thinly sliced

1 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese

One bag tortilla chips

3 cups shredded cooked chicken breast

3 Tablespoons of chopped cilantro

Kosher salt

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, mix together the tomatoes, scallions, jalapeño slices, and sprinkle some salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together the cheddar and mozzarella.

Set both bowls aside.

On a large baking sheet, spread half the tortilla chips. On top of the chips, spread half of the cheese mix.

Sprinkle half of the chicken and half of the tomato mixture.

Cover all of that with the remaining tortilla chips.

Spread the remaining chicken, tomato, and cheese mixture.

Bake 15-20 minutes (until the cheese is completely melted)

*Note: You can use sour cream, salsa, and guacamole as a side!

This recipe was inspired by a Kris Jenner recipe!

Stranded Link Up

Stranded-With-1024x519.jpg

Hello all! I hope everybody is having a nice week. If you haven’t entered my giveaway yet, you totally should! We already have almost 400 entries! Click HERE to enter.

Today I am joining Shay for her Stranded link up!

The theme today is What three famous people would you like to be stranded with on a deserted island?

So my list is very random and it makes me laugh to think of this group stuck on an island, but I actually think it’s kind of genius.

The first famous person I want on my island is…

Unknown.jpeg

John Edward! Okay so hear me out– I’ve been trying to get an appointment with John for YEARS! For those of you who don’t know about John, he is an amazing psychic medium.  Well a few years ago I managed to get tickets to one of his group readings. And I wasn’t given a reading! So I figure if I could just get him on an island, he would have to give me a reading!

Unknown-1

After I get my reading, I would love to talk about hot topics with Barbara Walters! Listen.. if I’m stuck on an island, I definitely do not want to be on an island with a boring person. I can’t imagine the interesting conversations that could be had with Ms.Walters!

Unknown-2

My last pick is Selena Gomez. Originally I was going to go with Billy Joel because I love his music and would love a private concert. But I decided that between Barbara and John, I will probably want someone closer to my age! And Selena seems nice, so why not??

So it’s Wednesday but over here we are gonna pretend it’s Monday! I have a great business to share with you all today.

IMG_1344

I was over the moon excited when What The Beep Jewelry sent me my own personalized necklace. Having the name that I have, I NEVER get anything saying my name unless I have it custom made. So with that being said, I am obsessed with my new necklace!

What The Beep Jewelry specializes in making custom morse code jewelry.

I mean, how cool is it to have your name in morse code on a necklace?!

This is just the perfect gift! If you don’t want a name, there are other options as well.
