Happy Holiday weekend! In preparation for all the celebrating you’ll be doing, I’ve put together 8 “Nom nom no-bake” 4th of July recipes for you. In preparation for all the shopping you’ll be doing (I started on Monday and have already received a few items!), I’ve rounded up 14 stellar sales and my picks of the best items.

1. ANTHROPOLOGIE *– Take an extra 20% off sale. I love this detailing on this.

2. BANANA REPUBLIC* – Take 30% off regular items with code BRTHIRTY and up to 50% off sale items with code BRGOBIG. I think it’s hard to go wrong with this dress*.

3. BERGDORF GOODMAN* – Up to 70% off. The Oscar de la Renta item I scored at this sale (no longer available – but this* is) is already on its way to me.

4. BLOOMINGDALE’S* – Take an extra 20% – 75% off on select items.

5. CLUB MONACO* – Take an extra 30% off sale + 40% off clearance with code THESALEONSALE*. This dress * is so Kate Moss 90s, and this one* says minimalist haute couture.

6. GAP* – Up to 50% off. This top * in black and white, blue and black *, and orange *, and two pairs of these* (my favorite denim for the past 6 months) arrived on my doorstep this morning.

7. HENRI BENDEL* – 50% off Sale. This lady-like leather satchel * is a classic piece, to be worn year-round. This rose gold beauty * makes a polished statement and can be worn with just about anything.

8. HORCHOW* – Take 20% off the entire site.

9. JOURNELLE* – Take up to 70% off select items. I’ve heard good things about these* and these*.

10. NEIMAN MARCUS* – Take an extra 35% off sale items (discounts applied at checkout). Thrilled that the two Oscar de la Renta items* (I got the same thing in two different colors) I scored at this sale are already on their way to me. We received these* as a gift from our wedding registry (thank you Natasha and Brian!) and are thinking about getting another set* while they’re on sale.

11. POTTERY BARN* – Take an extra 30% off clearance items with code EXTRA15*. This beautiful embroidered bedding * is a designer-favorite, and can be monogrammed. I hope they don’t discontinue it. This piece* can transport an entire bathroom to the beach. And this set * is all about zen.

12. SERENA & LILY* – These towels * are everything.

13. URBAN OUTFITTERS* – Take an extra 30% off sale items (discounts applied at checkout). Urban Outfitters has been one of my favorite place to shop for on trend pieces lately. How pretty is this Indian-inspired top? This little peek-a-boo number * is great for layering, and if you can do a 30″ inseam (I need about 5 more inches), this one-piece * is yes, please.

14. TOPSHOP* – I am in need of new tops and this flirty top * and this  feminine top * are in my cart.
