In today’s sales roundup, I found a lot of goodies to spice up your kitchen at both Amazon and Nordstrom, including a spoon rest from Farmhouse Pottery, our best mini food processor, and a Le Creuset Dutch oven. There’s a huge sale happening at J.Crew that ends tonight, and Nordstrom’s Spring Sale ends tomorrow, so don’t dillydally on either of those.

I’m From Mugwort Essence

According to our beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton, this mugwort essence is ideal for treating dry, blotchy skin and post-acne redness.

This isn’t the biggest discount, but $70 off an Apple Watch isn’t a bad deal. It’s on sale in red, pink, and midnight blue (pictured here).

If you don’t have a lot of cabinet space, our best mini food processor is on sale. It’s perfectly sized for whipping up pesto, sauces, and crunchy toppings.

Since Nordstrom’s Spring Sale ends tomorrow, I spent some time snooping around the retailer’s home section — and I found some excellent deals, like this super-sweet spoon rest.

A really good deal on a Le Creuset Dutch oven that you’ll use forever.

A lovely candle holder from the beloved Finnish brand Iittala. (Note that it’s only on sale in clear, which I think it the best option.)

TBCo Tartan Lambswool Blanket

Yes, it’s still a little pricey, but this gorgeous lambswool blanket is nearly half off.


Here’s a shiny new belt bag to keep your essentials dry.

J.Crew French Bikini Top

Select styles are 50 percent off at J.Crew right now, including plenty of swimwear. This classic French bikini top comes in 13 colors — but you’ll find the most size availability in fuchsia, cornflower blue, army green, navy blue (pictured here), cobalt, and black.

And some bottoms to go with.

If your swimwear collection is already complete, consider this breezy cotton cover-up.

Speaking of button-ups, I spotted a nice (and also all-cotton) one for just $18 at Nordstrom Rack.

Finally, this full- and travel-size duo of our best-overall candle.
