Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is still happening, FYI

Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw Blanket

If you missed out on Prime Day, don't beat yourself up. Look instead toward another terrific sales event happening through this month: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

If you're already shopping for, say, a college student, or just looking ahead to fall already, you know you can never have enough throw blankets.

During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, these soft, fluffy blankets are $60 off.

Tik-Tok-famous oven: Still on sale after Prime Day

Breville via Amazon

If this countertop oven looks familiar, that's because it's all over TikTok right now.

The countertop oven features eight different cook functions: toast, bagel, bake, broil, pizza, roast, reheat and something called "cookies," which we're betting is just right for baking cookies. 

It also has three different rack positions, and even though it's mini-sized, this smart oven can take on four slices of toast at a time, or have room for a six-cup muffin tray -- and even an 11-inch pizza. 

And it's on sale, on this, the day after Prime Day.

It's not over: Post-Prime Day deals you can still get

Prime Day is over. But you can still find decent deals on plenty of uber-popular appliances, smart-home gadgets and even -- yes -- those coveted Apple products. You just need to know where to look. For example, if you're in the market for AirPods, mosey on over to Walmart.

Apple AirPods Pro Wireless Earbuds with MagSafe Charging Case

Just about anyone will love these budget-minded Apple AirPods. They're not the latest model, but they're still one of the most sought-after earbud models on the market. These AirPods boast more than 24 hours total listening time (with the wireless charging case), a foolproof, one-tap setup for Apple device owners and a low-latency wireless connection (for full immersion when consuming movies and music). 

The 2nd generation AirPods retail for $159 at Apple, but Walmart currently has them in stock for $120.

Top Prime Day beauty deal: Save on salon-worthy shampoo

The R+Co. hair-care line is known for many things: An almost steady stream of new and innovative products. A loyal fandom among top Los Angeles hairstylists. A cult following among beauty junkies.
