{target tuesday}

SHOP: Tee | Jeans | Sunglasses ($10)

Not to be trusted alone at Target! Or at Target in general! Have you ever seen anything more fitting?

Once again, I’m sharing ALL THE THINGS Target today. A try-on + TONS of Hearth & Hand new arrivals. If Target had a Bar – my life would be perfect. I could sip chardonnay and I stroll the aisles. But, that could also be very dangerous. Ha! I guess Starbucks will do.

And I apologize in advance – Target has some really cute shit right now and you’re going to have to make a Target run ASAP!

New Fall decor items from Hearth & Hand hit Target stores on Sunday. And I think it’s safe to say – I’m obsessed. I love the colors. The textures. The Faux Amber Olive Branch Arrangements are so good and $10! I may have to pick up the Charcoal Stripe Area Rug for my Fall Front Porch. And the Wall Mount Toilet Paper Holder – random, I know, but LOVE this style. The Black Mirror with Shelf will fit perfectly in my tiny entryway. These Apothecary Glass Storage Bottles for bathroom counters are perfection. Stoneware Utensil Caddy would make a great flower vase. This Wood Letter Board – great for a first day of school sign. And of course, the Coffee Mugs always get my attention.

{friday 5}

Smocked Ruffle Top (on sale) | Jeans ($45 off) | Clogs (50% off) | Straw Clutch ($21) | Headband ($15) | Necklace

HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it! Thanks for letting me vent yesterday. Loved reading all your messages. Totally made my day so much better. Had a great evening. Bay made dinner. We went on a walk. I didn’t sleep for shit. But, I got up early AF ready to kick off the weekend. Hit Nugget for their bacon..lol. Bay’s fave and I want to make homemade breakfast pizzas in the morning. And Raley’s to use all my Something Extra coupons. Ha! Bay and I had a coffee date at Scribblers Coffeehouse, our new fave place! All before 7:30 am. It’s gonna be a good day!

Weekend plans: Chill the f out. Sit by the pool. Hopefully get my peeps to take a hike with me. Do a little yard work. Meal prep. Have happy hour with GG. Catch a movie? I have a feeling The Art Of Racing In The Rain will make me cry my damn eyes out. And fingers crossed….make it to the new plant shop, Propagate Sac. What’s on your agenda for the Weekend?

Thing I’m loving this week…..

{mini closet clean out}

Tee ($12) | Skirt ($20)| Booties sold out // similar | Sunglasses | Rope Bracelet

It’s Thursday friends. The HOT as hell weekend is almost here. Almost, almost, makes me not that excited for the best two days of the week after reading the weather forecast. 108 degrees. Sickening! We are going to head to the coast for a bit and get some vitamin sea. And cooler temps.

I was looking in my closet the other day. Had one of those “I hate everything I own” kinda days. Which is absolutely ridiculous. But, we all have those days, right? Next thing I know, I’m pulling shit out and throwing it on my bed.

And it got me thinking. Why wait for spring to start cleaning? I like + NEED to do it seasonally. And since the famous Nordstrom #nsale has me dreaming of fall trends, I’m ready to make room and get rid of some shit I really don’t need.

Scroll down for some tips on how I purge my closet each season. Pack away the things you wont need for a few months so you can really see the clothes you have + love. And make a list of items you need to fill in the gaps. Grab a good bottle of wine. And spend the hot ass weekend doing some much needed closet clean out. I promise you wont regret it!

Remember that one time I did the Marie Kondo Method? You can read all about it right here: {weekend notes} I recommend reading the book and doing some research before you take on a project like this one. Shared more about it here: {let’s kon marie} Or what about the time {i gave up shopping for 30 days…kinda} I sourced all kinds of great closet goodies that I have and love.

Things you really need to get rid of NOW……

Music + Wine

Before you get started….Put on some good ass music. This is no time for Adele! You’re gonna need some of that good mood music. And a BIG ass glass of wine. Hell, just bring the whole bottle into your room! Getting tips might make some purging decisions a little easier. Just saying.

The Skinny Jeans

And I’m not chatting about the skinny legged jeans we all own and love to death. Keep those sis! What about those jeans you’ve been packing around for years. Maybe even since…..high school? Those ones you once wore. But you can now hardly get one leg into? The ones before you had #hellakids. Yeah, those skinny jeans. Live in the present girlfriend and ditch those never-gonna-wear again jeans. Better yet, gather them up and head to Madewell or J.Crew. They will give you a $20 voucher for each pair of old ass jeans. Not matter what condition they are in. Then next time you’re in the market for new pair of denim…you turn it in and save yo self some money honey!

That moment you look around and realize your entire life comes from Target! Anyone else?

I think it’s safe to say, “Hi my name is Stacy, and I’ve got a Target addiction!”

But, not today. It’s Target Tuesday! And Target is having a killer sale.

Tank (on sale) | Skirt | Heels | Clutch (similar) | Sunglasses

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

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.

{summer front porch + diy striped doormat}

Stay Awhile Sign | Large White Planter | Small White Planter | Wood Plant Stand | Chevron Rug

It’s Frriiiiidayyyy!! We made it. Longest short week everrrrr!

You guys, the worst thing happened last night.

I dropped and shattered my iPhone screen. I was unloading groceries and dropped it in my driveway. Face down. You know that feeling when you pick it up and the screen is fine and you kinda wanna do a cartwheel? Yeah, I didn’t get that warm and fuzzy feeling this time. Legit wanted to cry. It cracked so much that when I run my fingers across the screen, it feels like I could get a splinter.

It’s getting fixed now. I feel fucking naked. My phone, it has my to-do list in the notes section. I can’t text Bay. Can’t look at my MyFitnessPal to track my macros…and I really want a snack. Ha. My alarms? What if I forget to do something. No online banking. No random scrolling. No googling. No email. No Pandora. No clock. No Waze to figure out the fastest way to get someplace. So weird. So sad too. Being without my phone for 2 hours can make me feel like I cannot function. Anyway, on the bright side – it’s getting fixed. And all will be right in the world again. Maybe I should do one of those digital detox weekends? Nah, F that!

What I’m really here to share is my updated front porch. I gave it a little face lift.

Hosed her off. Pulled out some spray paint. New fresh plants + mulch. And I’m in LOVE! We live in a rental, so there is only so much I can do. I’m not trying to break the bank. This was a VERY budget friendly patio refresh. Because, let’s keep it real, I’d rather buy a new pair of Madewell jeans with that money…HA!

This summer weather makes me want to squeal. I get so frickin happy when it’s officially nice enough to open the windows + sliders. I just want to sit on the patio and sip my coffee….or wine. And the sunlight last wayyy past dinnertime. Ahhh…isn’t it fantastic?

You’re the Bee’s Knees Mug

{weekend notes}

Well hello to the Monday-ist Tuesday there ever was!

Question: If you could drop everything today, and travel anywhere in the world…..where would you go?

Mine will forever be Italy. I love experiencing new places. Near or far! Taking photos. Walking around. Currently suffering from Major Wanderlust, can you tell? But, sitting at this beach did the trick this weekend.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Work on our Summer Bucket List
  • Dedicate an evening to all our fave self care
  • Plan out Bay’s summer (babysitting + camps + vacay’s)
  • Make some bomb.com dinner’s
  • Finish Girl, Stop Apologizing (such a great book)
  • American Eagle Try-On…they’ve got some cute shit!!!
  • Finishing touches on the front porch
  • Father’s Day gift guide for all the dudes in our lives
  • Count my Macros + log everything
  • Chill Out!

This week on xoxostacyb: You got my {Italian Salad} yesterday, and I truly apologize that it posted without the actual recipe yesterday. On my end it looked as though everything was just so, but I used a “page break” instead of a “read more” option. Which cut off the ingredients + directions. It’s corrected now! Other posts coming this week….my front porch refresh. Some fun dresses that wont break the bank. And maybe even a salmon recipe.

Highlights from the long weekend…..

We stopped at Bridal Veil Falls on our way to Tahoe Friday. It was the largest I’ve ever seen it in my years of driving to the cabin.

{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!

Happy FRIDAYYYYY!

A BIG HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the Mama’s out there. I hope you get to rest + relax at some point this weekend. I hope you get the day off from wiping butts. Maybe even brunch withOUT the rugrats. Or breakfast in bed? Preferably take-out so your kitchen isn’t f’ed up. A special handmade card from school. Oh and how about one of those macaroni noodle necklaces? Yes, I hope you get one of those too! And maybe a homemade coupon book? Filled with “leave me alone” vouchers. Ha! Whatever you do, have a good one! Cheers!

Weekend plans? You guys, I’m a free woman. Well, kinda. More like my calendar is free AF! Meeting some of my girlfriends for happy hour tonight. A little shopping tomorrow. Followed with a Mother’s Day spa date at Cache Creek Casino. Sunday we’re doing the Capay Garden Tour. Never done it before, but I keep hearing great things. I’m looking forward to a weekend of family + friends + cheers!

Now let’s chat about steps….baby steps. We’ve slowly been making an effort to be less wasteful and reduce our plastic waste. Today I’m sharing some of the simple changes we’ve made in our home. I know that even the small part I play can actually make a difference

Well, today I’m going to start something new. Maybe for just this week? Maybe forever? Target Tuesday. Because, if there is one things I think we ALL have in common, it’s our LOVE for good ol Target!

Since Target it a one stop shop for ALL THE THINGS, I thought why not dedicate a day to it? From the cutest new clothing arrivals. To sale finds. Seasonal….oh yeah. Home decor! You name it!

So, here are a few things I’m diggin lately……
