Happy National Ice Cream Day! We will definitely be taking advantage of one of the places offering a deal on ice cream today. It would be rude not to, right? Ice cream should be celebrated. Plus it’s hot as heck outside, so anything that will keep me cool is fantastic in my book.

Annie had a sleepover last night, and I don’t think anyone is as exhausted than Schuyler, who got more attention than she even knew what to do with. I predict she will sleep all day (and hopefully Annie will take a nap, too).

Pretty Things

~The jewelry Pure Vida sells is gorgeous (and it also gives jobs to artisans in Costa Rica), and many of the bracelets support different charities. If you follow this link, you’ll get 50% off your order of $40 or more (which will get you like a zillion bracelets!) (I have like 500 in my cart right now).

~The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts on the 21st, but early access started a few days ago for anyone who has a Nordstrom Card. I literally only have a Nordstrom debit card for the early access. This is when I try to stock up on stuff for the school year, like shoes, jeans, etc. Annie also needs new running shoes and there are some great deals on Addidas and Puma brands. Man, I love sales.

~Speaking of sales, Anthropologie has an additional 30% off of sale items. Time to spend some birthday gift certificates!

Prime Time

Did you guys get anything good on Amazon Prime Day? I got random stuff, like felt-tip pens, portable easels, and a water bottle. My favorite thing about Prime Day is how random all the sale items are.
