my summer sale shopping list  // jojotastic.com @jojotastic

In my past life when I worked in retail, this was my favorite time of year to shop sales. The days are still warm enough to immediately wear the finds you score, but you can also stock up for next year. Plus, if you go on vacation to somewhere warm in the fall, you’re all set in the wardrobe department! There are a few sales I’ve had my eye on lately… here are my top picks from each!

First up is ASOS. Surprisingly, there are tons of options for fall in the sale section. I’m lusting after this grey suede moto jacket in a big way.

I don’t really understand where this summer went. My goal was to have the loft settled by September 1 and, hello, that is pretty damn imminent. I’m all set with my furniture, but now my biggest priority is layering on all of those special details. Rugs, art, plants… the good stuff! I’ve had my eyes on a few special additions to my loft lately, starting with these gorgeous textiles by Susan Connor. I recently splurged on a super-adult sofa in a gorgeous shade of pale grey, so now I’m hunting for the perfect textiles to make it feel a bit casual bohemian.

I also really love her linen throws! Can you imagine wrapping sumptuous linen around your shoulders?? That’s sort of what my dreams are made of…

Then, there is art… Because I live in a loft, my ceilings are quite tall, making a gallery wall a MUST. You wanna know a secret? I’ve never had a gallery wall before and the thought of making one scared the bejesus out of me. None of the pieces I’ve collected over the years go together — everything is a one-off and totally different. I recently decided that I need to pick ONE piece and build around that. I’m quite enamored with this abstract painting by Lauren Packard, especially because it’s from Minted and they have such amazing (and affordable) framing options. This might just be my statement piece…

And while we’re on art, I’m also in love with these mixed media pieces by Xochi Solis on Leif. The colors are bold and bright, while the layering of materials and techniques really speaks to me. The key will be picking one that goes with my statement piece, huh?

And then there’s my houseplant situation. If I could, I’d just have All Of The Plants Ever. When I discovered these architectural, tall plant stands from Forage Modern Workshop, I instantly fell in love. I’m thinking a pair of these will do juuuust fine by the window.

I still have so many more ideas for my loft… stay tuned! I’m even hoping to be able to show you guys some photos soon!

I’m all about pairing down what I own and embracing the less-is-more philosophy. I mean, let’s face it, there’s only so much room on a well-styled bookshelf for even the most exquisite treasures. So instead of buying things from brands with a ‘household name,’ I’m turning the expression on it’s head and only buying things for my household from names. From now on my special objects won’t bring to mind the store I bought them at, but the person who made it. As this week’s giveaway Bison Shop say’s best, it’s all about owning fewer, but better products that enrich the mind, body + home.

That’s why I’m so excited about Bison Shop’s online store, dedicated to the simple things in life. Not only do they stock gorgeous, handmade apothecary products, jewelry, leather goods and ceramics from artisans all over the country, they have a ‘found’ section with some of the coolest home goods ever! All their products are sustainable, whether they had a past life or were created using minimal materials.

One of my favorite things about summer is being able to get out of the gym and exercise outdoors! Don’t get me wrong, I love getting in some quality treadmill time, but how can you beat running outside on a gorgeous summer day? While I love my gym wardrobe, sometimes strappy neon is not what I want to be jogging around the city in. That’s why I’m so excited about this week’s giveaway with Crane & Lion!

giveaway + crane & lion jojotastic.com

I love how all the pieces in their fall line are made to mix and match. With one of the classiest color palates I’ve seen in fitness clothing, I could throw this whole collection into a suitcase and feel ready for a business meeting or yoga retreat.

ultimate gifts from Simone LeBlanc jojotastic.com @jojotastic

Recently I found myself in a pickle: injured and stuck in a small mountain town with no way to get home. In a fit of fear, I called a good friend of mine and asked her to come get me… and she said yes. She drove 2 hours each way to come retrieve me and, for that, I will eternally be in her debt. All I want is to properly thank her for helping me out, a person who is really awful at asking for help to begin with! And nothing really seems good enough…

giveaway + hand in hand jojotastic.com

Everyone has different little tricks for jumpstarting their day, and aside from an absolutely mandatory pour-over coffee, mine is scent. I start my morning routine with bright, fragrant lotions, aromatic soaps, and sweetly scented sprays. It helps me slows things down and start my day calmly and aware of all my senses. That’s why I’m so excited about this week’s giveaway with Hand in Hand!

giveaway // hand in hand jojotastic.com

These gorgeous bath and beauty products from Hand in Hand are completely natural and come complete with striking scents like the almond, jasmine and vetiver from their Espere Collection. Not only is their line of bath and beauty products completely natural and meticulously produced with eco-conscious methods, Hand in Hand’s main mission is saving lives through both their products and proceeds. “For every product purchased, Hand in Hand’s Espere Collection provides essential small business loans, which empower entrepreneurs in developing countries to to create jobs and strengthen their community.” Quite an amazing mission statement, huh?

I’m always so blown away by people like married couple Bill and Courtney, dedicated to fixing global issues in new, creative ways. The Espere Collection grew from Courtney & Bill’s many visits to Haiti, where they were donating bar soaps and providing water to children in orphanages. They wanted to give back to the country in a different way, so they started a micro lending program and created the Espere Collection to focus specifically on that cause. Now Hand in Hand has three different collections, all made in the USA and are 100 percent vegetable-based, vegan and made with organic ingredients.

nordstrom anniversary sale must-haves jojotastic.com

If there is one sale that I shop each and every year… it’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Fun fact: did you know I used to work there? Long, long ago, I designed bedding for them! Every since being part of the ‘Nordstrom family,’ I’ve felt this strangely special connection to shopping there. It might even be rooted in earlier memories: my mom took me there for my first bra fitting and I bought my prom dress at Nordstrom. And don’t even get me started on every single positive experience I’ve had at the beauty counter… that place can be dangerous!
