Denver Lifestyle Blogger Styles a Bar Cart from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 

Ever since the days of Adam Chandler on All My Children, a well-stocked bar cart in a dimly lit room in someone’s home has been a symbol of class and prestige. I remember watching Adam saunter over to the bar cart (and the camera), sigh as he thought of his most recent enemy or current love interest(s), and plan his next calculated move that would ultimately result in the continuation of his position of power.

Since that time I’ve dreamed of styling my own bar cart and stocking it with staples suitable for every type of guest. Enter Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. There is so much inspiration out there on Pinterest and other sites to take ideas from. Here I’ve compiled great deals from the sale that are must-haves for every bar cart. Stock up with this glassware and decor and all that’s let is liquor. Have fun!

Denver Lifestyle Blogger Shares What to Wear to Work

The fact that I’m writing a blog about what to wear to work seems a bit ironic. On a normal day, I step into my office in Golden in what would be considered less than business casual. I have a lot on my plate at work, as many of us do, so putting on makeup and doing anything other than throwing my hair into a top knot is out of the question. We’ve all been there right?

I usually roll up to work in what I would call ‘soccer mom clothes.’ Cute yoga pants, some trendy trainers, and whatever I can find as a top to match. I forgive my dismissal of corporate attire in favor of soccer mom clothes by justifying that I’m dressing for the job I want, not the one I have. #kiddingnotkidding As you may expect, this comment always makes my boyfriend laugh … followed by silence when he realizes that I’m probably serious.

Today I had a short presentation to give during my company’s monthly strategy call. I thought if I dressed the part it would help me feel more confident and therefore sound more confident when presenting. Sure enough! Spending that extra time this morning helped me to project a more self-assured “girl you got this” voice.

Until it’s soccer mom time, I’m willing to bet that there is a connection between how I present myself at work, how I’m perceived, and possibly how I’m compensated. To be continued…

For now, I thought I would share with you my #ootd from today at the office. Slay on.

Denver Lifestyle Blogger | Adored Home Accent Pieces from the Nordstrom Early Access Sale

 

The clock is winding down on the Nordstrom Early Access Sale. Less than four hours and the doors will open wide to everyone. Now is the time to snatch up those last minute items that have been sitting in your shopping cart for the last week!

Interior design has grown to be one of my greatest passions. It’s rare to find high-end home decor statement pieces at a price that doesn’t send you running to the nearest IKEA. Fortunately, this Nordstrom sale has an endless inventory of everything you could possibly want to perfectly complete the aesthetic you desire–whether it’s this chenille pillow to finish off a perfect bedding ensemble or this hand-knit throw to complement the armchair in your study.

Sit back and daydream while picturing these in your own cozy home.
