{shopping is my cardio}

Shopping is my cardio.  Target 🎯 shopping, that is. It’s been a little quiet over here. Just needed some off time…literally. But I did hit up Target once or twice.

Okay fine, three times in the last week 🤷🏼‍♀️

My motto: When all else fails, just got to Target.  Buy a cute top. Get a new mug. It solves all the problems 😂

so let’s chat about all the new finds I scored at the one, the only, Target!!

Let’s start with cute tops, because you know I’m a sucker for a cute $20 top!  I have to admit this was the ONE section that was a little disappointing.  I’m gonna give Target a pass this time though.  They are transitioning to Spring….and I cannot frickin wait.  I vowed today to not buy another long sleeve top!  Sooooo…Target best get that shit out STAT!  Ha!

ps…All the underlined + bold words are “clickable” links.  They will direct you to the actual item on Target.  I’m saving you all the searching time 🙂

Monday!  The first Monday of 2019 that I hit the ground running.  Literally, well, more like walking…Ha!  Me and my morning walking/workout partner have been under the weather, so it was nice to get back at it today.  Our weekend was chill AF, and it was much-needed.  I heard the word “hygge” (pronounced hue-guh) for the first time and decided to embrace it.  Meaning: The Danish word for the sensation of extreme coziness and deep contentment.  Lit some candles.  Pulled out all our cozy blankets.  And straight up kicked it Sunday morning – afternoon.  I found this new eucalyptus variety at Trader Joe’s and it added the finishing touch to my coffee table vibe.

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready to kill it this week.  And if not, that’s perfectly okay too!

 

Intentions for the Week…..

  • Keep it simple
  • Be kind
  • Get more sleep
  • Know my limits
  • Recycle + reduce household waste
  • Worry less

  • Let shit go
  • Meditate
  • Say no without any guilt
  • Keep making ALL THE THINGS around me pretty AF

Happy Tuesday friends!  If you’re anything like me, you’re scrambling around like a wild women.  So, let’s keep it short and sweet.

Remember how I keep saying I’m craving minimal + simple decor?  Not a lot of color.  Natural.  Greenery.  Clean.

I was playing around with some ornamental cabbage I picked up from Trader Joe’s last week.  By the way, it’s only $4.99!!  And I was in TJ’s yesterday and they’ve got enough for everyone.  I kept sticking the long stalks in a vase and just wasn’t loving it.  So I chopped the stems and stuck them in a salad bowl.  Grabbed some seeded eucalyptus that I had in a vase.  Popped it all around the base.

And it was magic.  I fell in love with it.  This simple arrangement meets my checklist of needs: clean + minimal + natural + green.

Not to mention it cost me $8.  Trader Joe’s has hands down, the BEST flower section I’ve ever seen.  And right now it’s better than ever.

You could always add some flowers.  Hydrangea would be beautiful.  Or even babies breath.
