Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Sera Briggs

Hey y’all!!! I wanted to take a minute and share with y’all a few of my favorites from the Nordstrom Sale. Let me start by saying that yes a lot of their stuff is pricey and I am a bargain shopper for the most part. However, I do think it is a good time to stock up on good quality staple items for your closet. So I am going to share with you a few things that I own and wear a TON, things that I have very similar to, and just a few things that are on my wish list!!!

Postpartum Health Journey

Sera Briggs

Happy Friday y’all!!! With MW’s first birthday approaching, I was thinking it would be a good time to share will y’all my postpartum health journey from this past year!!!

Let me backup and start with before I got pregnant. Yes I was small, but I was in terrible shape. I would always say I was going to start eating right and working out, but I never actually took the initiative to do so. I felt terrible and never had any energy. Once I got pregnant all of this just multiplied and got so much worse. This time last summer I was a whopping 50lbs heavier, and let me just say pregnancy was rough!!!

Once I had MW my mind was made up I was going to change my habits and get myself in shape!!! I had been following Jen Guthrie for several years now and knew I wanted to join her Beachbody Bootcamp. I didn’t want to do anything that would set me up for failure—— after all I was not trying to go on a diet but have a lifestyle change.


Beachbody taught me how to eat right, gave me an endless fitness plan that I could do from anywhere with just about any schedule, and it helped me get in the best shape of my life!! I made my mind up that eating right a few days out of the week was better than eating wrong every meal. I told myself working out one day a week was better than no days.

I just set small attainable goals for myself and it has helped me tremendously!!! Here are a few things I have done that have worked for me:

-Monday-Thursday: I try and eat as healthy as I can and drink as much water as possible.

-I drink a Shakeology just about every morning in place of breakfast.

-We do not keep soft drinks in our house. If we go out to eat , I may treat myself to one.

-Beachbody sends you a list of things that are good for you to eat and I just went through the list and picked the things off of there that I enjoy and mix those up for different meal.

These are just a few things that have helped me!! For me, it wasn’t about a number on the scale. It was all about feeling better!! Have I done the best job with with workout plan? No ——I have not but I have done great sticking with the eating, and I can say I am in a much better place than I was this time last year and the year before that!!! I feel a million times better!!


I would love for y’all to join me on this journey if getting in better shape is something you have been thinking about. If y’all have any questions I would love to answer them for you!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my and have a great weekend!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Sera Briggs

Hey y’all!!! I wanted to come on today and share with y’all all about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Not sure if youl are aware about it or not. Last year was my first year to actually shop. I only got one item which were my Spanx faux leather leggings, but I cannot tell you how much I have worn them, and I got them for 40% off!!!

When is the sale?

Early Access- July 12-18 starting at 12:30 PM ET

General Public- July 19-August 4

How to get Early Access?

In order to shop the early access sale you will need to be a Nordstrom card holder. I personally do not have a card and that is why I only scored one thing last year. They didn’t really do many restocks for the public sale, and that is how I shopped. So if credit cards are your thing and would want to score lots of good deals then go for the Nordstrom Card!!

Why shop the sale?

This sale is AMAZING!!! Nordstrom puts tons of their new fall items out early for up to 40% off!!! So why not grab them now while they are so heavily discounted!!!!

My sale strategy

Make a list of basic items you need or maybe items you have been wanting but that were a little out of your price range and that are now discounted. I made a list of the things I wanted based off picks of other bloggers and their reviews, and I had my list ready when the sale opened to the public!! A lot of the things I wanted were sold-out already, but I did end up with the Spanx Faux leather leggings. The tight-wad that I am, I probably would not have bought them at full price!!!

Brands I have my eye on for this year

While I could get carried away, there are certain brands that I am hoping to score this year. Some of them are Spanx, Zella, Adidas, UGG, Barefoot Dreams, Free People, MAC, Sam Edelman, and TopShop,

I hope this has been helpful and y’all all score some amazing finds!!! Let me know if you have any questions!!!
