This covers shipping but not tax and purchase of the box does qualify towards your Beauty Insider points. 

Each box is curated around a specific theme. The theme of the July 2016 Play! by Sephora Box is Effortless Summer. How timely! The products are a selection of warm weather essentials and sunny standouts to keep one chic all summer long. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time there are two versions of the box based on skin type. I received the one for dry skin. The popsicle design on this month's pouch is so cute!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Sale, Nordstrom Online, Nordstrom Promotion, Shop Nordsrom

One of the most highly anticipated sales of the year has to be the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale where a number of good deals can be scored hot fashion, beauty and home items. I browsed the sale through early access and even though I'm a beauty girl at heart, I was honestly more impressed with the fashion offerings this time around so I I'm using this sale to add a few pieces to the wardrobe of both myself and my husband. Yes I shop for him and he's quite the dapper dresser because of it. The sale is officially opens to the general public today and runs through August 8. I will say that if you see something you like, you better snap it up because sellouts are a real possibility when it comes to this sale. This is everything I have my eye on. I already ordered the tie neck lace shell and the burgundy floral Leith midi dress which is a total steal at less than $50. I ordered the dotted chambray shirt for my husband. He has a long sleeve one just like it which gets a lot of wear and I suspect it will be the same with this short sleeve one. And that smart looking shawl collar cardigan will be a great layering piece for work.  Have you shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? What did you get?

My awesome blogger buddy Kim of A Very Sweet Blog recently surprised me as part of her lovely Sweet Surprise series and she generously gifted me with gift cards to both Nordstrom and Sephora. Thank you again! I'm putting them to good use!

Dine Out : BondST

BondST is an upscale modern Japanese fusion restaurant situated in a stylish brownstone on a cobblestone lined Bond Street between Shinbone Alley and Lafayette Street. It is made up of three levels with a minimalist yet warm decor.  I first dined here at least 7 years ago and the experience must have been middling since I don't have much of a recollection of it but I do recall that this place was more of a scene back then.  This time we dined in the candlelit lounge which has a cozy feel with a laid back vibe. The menu features a range of creative cooked dishes as well as traditional and specialty types of sushi. We ordered a few appetizers including the Wagyu Mini Burgers, Red Snapper Tacos and Tuna Crispy Rice. I have a bit of an obsession with crispy rice tuna and it's something that I must get if it's on the menu. This one was totally delicious and did not disappoint. I also really liked the flavorful red snapper tacos. The sushi was very fresh and delicious. My only complaint would be that the fish in our toro scallion roll was on the cold side. Everything was very nicely presented. The service was also excellent. Our waiters were friendly and knowledgeable but not in an overbearing way. They definitely try to casually upsell you at every opportunity but there was no attitude if you don't go for it. Overall we had a good experience at BondST but for the prices they charge, I'd really expect nothing less.

Good Earth Beauty Lip Scrub Set Giveaway

I always have a lip scrub in my beauty arsenal whether it be prefab or DIY. Since lips don't have oil producing glands, the only way to get rid of dry, flaky, dead skin is through gentle exfoliation. Regular exfoliation helps to keep lips smooth and soft which creates a primed base for whatever balm or lip color you apply over them. Today I'm reviewing a set of lip scrubs from Good Earth Beauty and we also have a set to give away. And Rena and Ian who are big on ice cream these days wanted to help me introduce them!

About the Brand: Good Earth Beauty is a unique online beauty shop that carries a range of natural, organic and cruelty-free products chosen and personally tested by their staff. Product lines include skincare, bath and body, cosmetics, haircare, perfumes and pet care.
