Just another manic Monday. I wish it was Sunday. Cause that’s my fun day! We had the most relaxing weekend. One that we really needed. When someone asked what I did over the weekend…..Umm, wine + sleep. Repeat. Ha! And are you even truly hungover if you don’t watch 5 hours of TV? I say NO! Let’s just say, I got caught up on 12 episodes of Beverly Hills Housewives…lol! And it was amazing.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Old Navy Try-On
  • Weight Watchers weigh-in
  • Master blueberry scones
  • Chat about my lemon obsession
  • Share cute summer tops under $25
  • Put the finishing touches on our summer bucket list
  • Maintenance appointments: get our pearly whites cleaned + get blonde AF
  • Summerland Whoop-Whoop!
  • Bike rides
  • Trader Joe’s burger throw-down

This week on xoxostacyb: Bramuda shorts….yep, I’m diggin them. Recipes I’m excited to try. Spillin the tea on new Trader Joe’s goodies. And our Summer Bucket List.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Learn all about Macros with I Heart Macros

{diy succulent bowl}

These succulent bowls are insanely easy to throw together. Probably my easiest DIY to date. Once you’ve gathered all your materials, it’s really just adjusting the succulents to your liking. And that’s basically it. Swear.

I kept seeing these on the gram’ this week and feel head over heels for them. The only difference, I used real plants vs. faux. Either totally do the trick. But, since my Mom is my succulent dealer, I opted to go the real deal route. You guys, her succulent grow fucking wild. It’s wild. Ha! They get watered every.single.day and they LOVE it. I do that to my succulents and the shrivel up and die. WTF? Stacy’s Mom has got the succulent thing going on!

{shopping is my cardio}

Floral Top ($20)// Coffee Mug ($3)// Bracelet ($9)// Bracelet 

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!!

IMG_9089.jpg

 

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
  • Drink more water
  • 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.
