The Only Guide You Need For The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
July 14, 2016 at 2:05 am 0

Hey Ya'll the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is about to commence with early access starting tomorrow. Here is an ultimate guide on the sale so you won't miss a thing. I will be making the Chic Mamas into a one, stop-shop for you all during the sale, so you won't miss a thing.

THINGS TO KNOW:

  1. If you are a Nordstrom Card Holder, you can start shopping the sale during the Early Access period which starts tomorrow, July 14th. The first week of the sale is open to Nordstrom Card Holders ONLY. If you are not a Nordstrom Card Holder, mark your calendar for Friday, July 22nd, this is when the sale is then open to the public. 
  2. This sale is amazing to help add pieces to your fall wardrobe at great prices. I recently cleaned out my closet to see what I would like to add or needed to buy during the sale. I divided my list into categories to help keep me on track and organized. I find it helpful, as there are so many items listed in the sale, and it will keep you from feeling overwhelmed.
 

SEE MY LIST BELOW:

Shoes: Booties | Flat Boots | OTK Boots

Accessories: Handbags | Hats | Scarves

Jeans: Skinny | Flare | Ankle

Sweaters: Turtlenecks | Capes/Ponchos | Cardigans

Coats: Trench | Bomber | Leather

I hope this helps you get ready to shop till you drop (even from your computer if you can't make it to the store!). Remember to be on the lookout for some amazing roundups from me such as lists of deals including the best finds under $50, $100 and more! I can't wait to share it with you all!

XOXO

My Favorite Tips for Healthy Snacking
July 13, 2016 at 1:26 am 0
image4 Oh My Gosh! Can we just talk about what a disaster my diet turned into when I had my daughter and time seemed to go flying out the window. I literally would find myself skipping meals, and eating Willow's leftovers. Let's just say my diet consisted of a lot goldfish, puffs, blueberries, applesauce, pasta...I mean I would eat whatever was left on the plate. I like to call these mishaps "snaccidents". So recently I have really focused on getting my diet and my life (lol) together so that I am making healthy choices for myself.  I really love these Fiber One Coconut Almond Protein Bars which I purchased from Walmart. I like to pair them with fresh fruit like apples or almonds throughout the day to help me stay on track. They also really curb my cravings for sweets. Here is how I plan ahead to ensure healthy snacking throughout the day:
  1. I plan snacks for the day, the night before. I tend to put my Fiber One bars in a baggy with my fruit so they are already to go.
  2. I carry snacks with me when I am on the go. This keeps me from buying unhealthy food.
  3. I try to not wait too long in between eating. I usually eat every two hours to ensure my blood sugar doesn't crash which usually jump starts my cravings for things like potato chips or chocolate.
Tell me what your #fiberoneflavor is that helps you stay on track with your healthy eating. You can buy Fiber One bars from @walmart. image1 image2 image3
