Well, here we are. It’s almost August and the closest thing I’ve had to a summer getaway is when my husband is outside with the kids and I’m inside on the couch, listening to true crime podcasts and online shopping. A perfect pairing, if I might add! 

Self-care is important. Which is why these days, scrolling through every page on Nordstrom online is my form of meditation, and scheduling a curbside pickup is my exercise. 

I’ve never been one to make excuses for shopping, but now since joining Nordstrom’s free reward program, The Nordy Club, I really don’t have to. In addition to offering free shipping and returns, curbside pickups, and free alterations— for every dollar I spend, I receive an automatic point that can be redeemed on anything at Nordstrom, including items at Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook. (Click here to join!)

Another way I like to practice self-care is by staying caffeinated and hydrated at all times. Hot and cold beverage stations are one of the many reasons I love (and am currently experiencing separation anxiety from) nice hotel lobbies. So why not bring that same hospitality into my own home, even if it’s only for me to enjoy?

During my most recent Nordstrom-scrolling meditation, I purchased some new glassware, a marble lazy susan, and marble coasters to create my cold beverage station. I’ll admit that I don’t drink as much water as I should, but placing this set up in my living room serves as a stylish reminder, especially when I infuse rosemary and berries in the carafe.

For my caffeination station, I placed my new mugs, marble coasters, a 50’s style Smeg kettle, and all the essentials, directly above my tea drawer. I typically make coffee with my eyes half-closed, so having everything in one place is important when operating on autopilot. As far as I’m concerned, caffeine doesn’t just make the day better, it makes it more possible.

It also feels good to slip on something cute but comfortable, and makes me look more put together than I actually feel. Nordstrom always comes through with items that fit those requirements. Needless to say, anything rainbow or rainbow-adjacent was an automatic “add to cart”. 

(Also, never underestimate the power of a Diptyque candle. They are expensive but worth the investment. This seems like a good time to mention that Baies was the official scent of Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding. Don’t believe me? Google it.)

With that said, if anyone needs me, I’ll be practicing self-care here on the couch.

Meal Prep Cutting Board

Our jaws dropped when we discovered this cutting board. It has containers that slide underneath, so you can chop your food and instantly store your pre-prepped items in the cute containers that come with it. We love this for prepping and storing items for kids lunches, plus it comes with graters for prepping cheese and more.

THE Rating: 10/10, our minds still are blown by this one!

Pizza Storage Container

Another "why didn't we think of that moment" was discovering this pizza storage container via TikTok. This container has individual trays inside that each hold one slice of leftover pizza. When you're ready to reheat, pull the microwave-safe tray out and heat your pizza with ease.

THE Rating: 8/10, we love this so much but it's not an absolute must-have if your family doesn't have the local pizza place on speed dial like us.

Ziploc & Foil Organizers

If there's anything we hate, it's a bunch of non-uniform boxes of plastics bags and aluminum foil shoved into a drawer. Enter: this amazing bag and foil organizer. We love using it with our labels to make drawer magic in 10 minutes flat.

THE Rating: 10/10, every kitchen needs this organizer. Period.
