Nordstrom Triple Points Weekend

Hey Nordstrom card holding fans, you knew what last weekend was, right? For those of you that don't know what the hell I'm talking about it was triple points weekend for Nordstrom card holders. Meaning that for every item purchased you not only earned one point per dollar spent - you earned 3pt per dollar! When you collect 2000 points you earn a Nordstrom note, $20 coupon off your next purchase.

So what did I buy? My purchases were pretty modest but they were items on my radar list:

From the top, a pair of classic cat eye tortoiseshell framed sunglasses by Kate Spade. I love Kate Spade shades - my other favorite pair of shades I own are my Kate Spade aviators. Also, my shades need some updating.

The bright fuchsia gloss is of course part of the recent Roses Ultimes de Chanel Glossimer/Nail collection. I love this gloss and I will post a look soon. And of course, my shadow collection is not complete without this very classic and one size fits all taupe shimmer, Safari. Such a beautiful nude on my eye that I'm kicking myself for not buying it years sooner. Also, I heard a nasty rumor that this is being discontinued - I hope the counter manager was wrong. Luckily, I snagged the last one she had.

My plan is to be responsible and pay off my bill before the next points event happens - I better check their calendar to get ready. Another great thing being about their fashion rewards program? On a day you  know you'll be making that huge purchase, you can arrange for a triple points day (you are only allowed one day).

Also, I am told that another HUGE NARS event will occur at the Westfield Nordstrom, downtown SF.

You know I have to be ready for that one!!

What did you guys score??


  1. Hi, I was bad! I got the new Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Compact Foundation, two Lancôme Rouge in Love lipsticks, and a Decleor facial oil. I also got a sample of the new Estée Lauder Invisible Fluid Foundation, I think I like the new Chanel a little more. I like your Chanel purchases too.

  2. Hi Rola!
    Wow, you made out pretty nicely as well. How is that new compact? I didn't even want to look at it since I'm still working through my Perfection Lumiere foundation and my new NARS tinted moisturizer. I do want to check out those Lancome lipsticks, actually I have been thinking about revisiting the line again since it was my first makeup love at the age of 16!

    1. The compact is amazing for normal to dry skin. I love that I can carry it for touchups. The coverage is not as good as Perfection Lumiere though.

    2. Interesting. Sounds like it's great for travel and to layer on top of a tinted moisturizer.

  3. I love your Kate Spade sunglasses! You got some great Chanel items. I just got a couple of MAC lipsticks and a couple of Lancome's matte lipsticks. :)

    1. Hi MM!
      Thanks so much. I had to practice some restraint at this event and I'm also an new cardholder so I'm sure it's all downhill from here!
