Amazon addicts unite! Ha! I never thought I was a big Amazon-er. Then I started compiling this blog post and one thing led to another and I was going down the rabbit hole. And I realized, I’m an amazon whore…lol!
Truth: I’m still to cheap to pay for Prime so, I hack into my sister + Cory’s account to use theirs.
I’ve listed everything out with prices and a brief reason why I dig this item.
Do you have any of these Amazon finds? If so, let a sister know. Is there something I MUST try? Let me know!
The Faux Pumpkin Centerpiece DIY was born last week. I typically stick with the real deal when it comes to pumpkins. I just love real pumpkins. The colors. The textures. I legit cannot get enough…Ha! But, if you remember from last year, I had a little mishaps with the REAL pumpkin centerpiece. Although it was fucking gorgeous, it almost ruined my life.
Okay, I may be exaggerating a little bit.
It rotted out. I picked it up to move it and the whole pumpkin melted in my hands. All over my carpet + dining room table. The smell that came off that thing could probably kill some kind of small animal. It was horrific. Ha! I shared a photo of it below for old times sake.
Happy Target Tuesday friends! It’s officially Fall Ya’ll so we can bust out all the pumpkins without everyone freaking out on all of us Fall lovers. Ha! I’ve been frequenting my local Target stores. Very impatiently waiting for all the Fall arrivals to appear. And let me tell you, Target is playing hard to get. I will find a couple items, but not ALL THE THINGS I see online and in my fellow Target lovers Fall Haul.
Today is Fall everything so, I hope you’re ready!
I found some great deals on the cartwheel app that should make your weekly Target trip a little sweeter…..pun definitely intended!
Good afternoon friends. We are on week 39 of 2019. Pretty wild, huh? That’s almost 39 weeks of Monday intentions. Some weeks they seem almost the same as the week prior. And some weeks they are loaded with fun + exciting things. Still fun to share either way.
We had a FUN weekend. Didn’t get much done on a productive level, but that’s okay. I’ll get caught up this week. We had fun with friends. Picked up some Harley & Bean gear. Watched Jenny get married. And hit the pumpkin patch. So, all in all – I can’t complain. Bay had her 3rd week of volleyball camp and it’s so cool to see her learning + growing.
Intentions for the Week:
lay off the booze for a hot one
make a Trader Joe’s Fall grocery list printable to share
hit my daily step goal
work on an Amazon round-up
finishing touches on our fall to-do’s
try some new air fryer recipes
wash all my reusable grocery bags
delete old photos from my phone
do something kind AF each day
decorate the front porch
share a new recipe on the blog
This week on xoxostacyb: New Target finds. Our Fall To-Do’s with all the things Fall. Can’t decide if I should share a salmon recipe or the WW turkey + carrot noodles. Hmmm! And hopefully get to my Amazon round-up!
Happy FRIDAY!! Cheers to the weekend! Cheers to you! We fucking made it! Barely…ha!
Weekend plans: Pizza + Wine tonight, because what else would one do on a Friday? Sleep in. Watch Jenny get hitched. Finish decorating our front porch. And probably go to be at 8pm. What’s on your weekend agenda?
For those asking:
Starbucks Cinderella Latte verdict…..
Not absolutely disgusting. Better than a PSL for sure. This secret menu item went viral this week, so obvi I had to try it out.
To order: ask for a PSL (hot, iced or blended) swap out half of the pumpkin spice pumps for white mocha ☕️
Today on the blog I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving from Old Navy. Have you been in there lately? I can’t leave without buying something
Everything is 30% off. NO code needed. I swear online prices are wayyy better than in-store. So, I always place my order for in-store pick up, to get the sale prices. And because, I’m cheap AF and don’t want to pay for shipping that take 15 days. lol.
It’s almost that time. I can smell it. I can feel it. Fall is officially here on September 23rd. Summer is my boo, but I think Fall just might possibly be my #1! Here are some ways that I welcomed Fall to our home. Easy things you can do without spending a ton of money. Just simple touches that make a BIG difference.
Before we get started, I have to take a moment to say Happy Birthday to my Mom, best friend, wine drinking partner, biggest fan and best Grammy. We love you to the moon and back x1,000 Can’t wait to celebrate with you tonight!!!
This weather has been giving me all the Fall feels. I’ve been wearing all my new sweaters + long sleeve tops. Decorating the house for the season. Buying anything + everything pumpkiny from Trader Joe’s. And pulling out some of my most fave recipes from the archives.
Some of them are so good and I almost forgot about them. I tend to try something New to make each week for the blog. I need to start busting out some of these oldies and throwing them into the rotation more often. Incase you’re new here. I’ve complied a few really, really good ones below for you!
Just another Magic Monday. Switching it up. Moday’s don’t have to be manic. Let’s make them magic. What do you think? After a full 7 hours of sleep last night (which I never, ever get) I did NOT wake up refreshed and ready for the day. But, instead of thinking about how shitty today could be. I’m turning it around and thinking of all the ways it can me magic. I know, sounds corny, but my mind + heart can make or break my day. So, this is working for me….so far!
Hope you all had a great weekend.
This past weekend was sprinkled with a healthy dose of family + friends + sunshine + relaxation. It was pretty damn good!
