To celebrate my 3-year blog anniversary, I’m giving away what I would want to receive: $100 to spend at Nordstrom. It also happens to be the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this week. Get excited. It’s seriously so good and I usually score some great essentials that carry me through to fall. 

I started shalicenoel.com after I had my 4th child and needed an outlet. Hooray for hobbies that turn into legit jobs! I painstakingly created flatlay #ootd’s on our wood floor, took 100 shoe seflies #fromwhereistand and chased the light before I went in to make dinner. I use the word ‘painstakingly’ because I was doing the flatlays between replenishing my little people’s water cups, wiping bottoms, answering the door, and cleaning up the baby powder before someone slipped in it. To say it’s been a roller coaster is an understatement. So many highs, like awesome partnerships with Burberry and Nordstrom, and lows – oh, I have a sick kid AND a deadline. Hmm, how’s this going to look? I’ve learned by trial and error what works and what doesn’t, but I always seem to be reevaluating weekly. I have days that I question what I do, and I think any working mom will empathize. But at the end of the day it’s about relationships and you only do what you can do. We’re only human. I’m thankful to my omnipotent God, my supportive husband, patient children and good coffee.

To thank YOU, for following along, leave a comment below and I’ll choose a random person below to give them the $100 Nordstrom giftcard. Not sponsored. Winner announced Wednesday 7/13.

Good luck!
