Piña Orange Rum Cocktail + Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks: Home, Men & Baby

Over the weekend, my friend and I enjoyed these yummy cocktails while we were at the pool.  The perfect summertime drink and super easy!  We added ours to taste, so I’m not quite sure on the exact measurements, but we mixed Malibu Rum with Vodka and a Pineapple/Orange Juice and it was delicious!

Piña Orange Rum Cocktail
Very similar to the Yellowbird.
I found one recipe with these measurements.

1 cup light rum
½ cup Creme de Banana
¼ cup Tia Maria
3 cups orange juice
¼ cup pineapple juice

Cheers, y’all!


Alright all of you without Nordstrom cards are probably over these sale pick posts, but at least you’re more prepared to shop, come Friday morning, right?  Remember that many popular items will sell out quickly, if they haven’t already.  As for restocking items, Nordstrom doesn’t usually restock at a certain time, but as returns occur, inventory will be changed.  So if you’ve got a favorite that may be sold out in your size, I’d check back every so often to see if it comes available again.

Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns, so don’t feel bad for placing more than one order.  I’ve definitely done this over the past week.  I honestly think it’s safer to do it that way.  That way you order your favorites right away, and then you can peruse around for the next few weeks and see if there’s anything else you’d like to order.  And Nordstrom makes it extremely easy to return products.  Your package comes with a shipping label sticker, so there’s nothing for you to have to print off.  Extremely easy returns and exchanges.

Also, I’ll be posting my purchases and favorites during the sale event, until it ends early August.  Make sure to keep checking back.  I’ll be including the fit on many of the pieces, as they arrive in the mail.  My first package is expected to arrive in the next day or so.  If anything, make sure and check back tomorrow.  I’ll be including a recap of all of my favorites from this past week, so you won’t have to click around different posts to find my favorite sale items from different categories.  They’ll all be organized in one place for you.

After sharing my boys and girls sale picks on Monday’s post, I had a few readers email asking if I would share my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks for Baby.  My pleasure!  I’m out of that age group with mine, so I tend to leave it out, but I had fun shopping to select my favorites for you!
