A note on taking action…
I’ve had a hard time in the past days figuring out how to make the choice to show up and have hope, over wanting to hide away from the world and the darkness that is overwhelming it right now. My natural inclination as an introvert is to want to unplug and turn it all off, but the mother in me is demanding I take action. When tragedies like these occur, this influencer job feels ever more frivolous and needless, but it is also a job that allows one to have a choice to help make real change. Maybe not a single voice, but a ripple, that may just become a big wave. So, where can I start? By using my dollars to help do the work.
Today through Monday, I am going to be donating 100% of my affiliate sales commissions to Everytown for Gun Safety Action Find, and your donation will be triple matched (thanks to Mike Bloomberg, who will be doing the triple match through the end of the month) You can learn more and donate directly HERE.
Let’s jump into some Memorial Day sales.
NORDSTROM Half Yearly Sale – up to 60% off, through June 5th. I usually do a lot of digging in a “high to low” sort mode for this sale. I feel like a lot of influences share go-to things like tees and blankets etc but you’d be surprised how many amazing designer gems are hiding at 40% off or more.
SCHUTZ Shoes – 50% off all sale. This is one of my favorite shoe brands, especially when it comes to wanting to find something very on trend in a good price point. This spring they are doing some fun colors and really fun embellishments, as well as great go-to classic sandals.
SERENA & LILY – 20% off everything with code WAVES, including sale. Ok, I don’t always share Serena & Lily sales because it is just so pricey, but when their sale alert email popped through I saw that the sale items were also included, which I have not seen them do in a while. So if you’ve had your eye on something pop over and see if it might already be on sale, and grab that additional 20% off! I’m eyeing this beach set and it’s part of the additional sale!
I’m going to keep adding more sales to this post, so be sure to keep checking in throughout the long weekend for updates!
