Wow, what a difference a year makes! Last Memorial Day, we were on strict stay-at-home orders, there were no parades or group gatherings, and everything seemed bleak and uncertain. This year, things are slowwwwwly getting back to some semblance of normal, and I am so looking forward to summer.
While we enjoy our picnics and barbecues this weekend, and yes maybe a little bit of online shopping, let’s take some time to remember and honor those who went before us and gave their lives to preserve our freedom and way of life. It’s so easy to lose that perspective in all the noise of the holiday weekend, and I don’t ever want to take it for granted.
Somewhere along the way, MDW came to mark the unofficial beginning of summer, and many retailers take this opportunity to run their biggest sales of the season. There are some amazing sales going on right now, so I rounded up all the best sales and my top picks at my favorite retailers. I hope it’s helpful, if you’re shopping this weekend!

The EltaMD tinted sunscreen and Colorescience Total Eye treatment cream are both included, as well as two items I recently started using, at the recommendation of my dermatologist, this REPLENiX Restore Nighttime Therapy and the Revision Hydrating Serum. All four are linked below.
EVEREVE // Up to 70% off Clearance styles
The Evereve sale is insane. You know how a lot of times, they say “up to 70% off” but most items are only 30-40% off? Most of these are actually 70% off AND fully stocked at the time of this posting. If you aren’t familiar with some of these brands, Z Supply, Chaser, Spiritual Gangster, and Sundry make some of the most ridiculously soft and comfy casual wear around.
