December Haul + Bread Crumb Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Image
This month's haul is a continuation of last month's since I got another pair of H&M pants because I liked them so much. I shopped some more off ads/influencers but the only other things I kept are a pair of rain booties and a pair of sandals from Target that were on sale for $6.49. As mentioned, I liked these  H&M pants  so much I decided to buy them full price in green but I didn't like them as much as the original. I did, however, get these Black Ankle-Length Pants , which I did keep and would be great for Spring and Summer since they feel like linen. Left: Pull-On Lyocell-Blend Pants . Right:  Black Ankle-Length Pants I really wanted to get the Abercrombie Vegan Leather Puffer Vest in Light Brown since the jacket didn't work out for me and it would be perfect to wear when I go out to play handball in this winter weather but that color was unfortunately sold out so I got it in regular black. I also picked up the popular Asymmetrical Snap-Up Fleece and this

November (and June/July/August) Haul + Chicken and Cucumber Noodle Stir-Fry Recipe

With a new house renovation going on, I've been too preoccupied with home stuff to post but I still can't believe I only did a little bit in June, July, and September, which is a record for me.  It was during the summer and mostly from Target, other than a trendy Primark shacket and black velvet cap from the Aeropostale outlet for only $1.  Black Friday is what got me to shop again and what I got from SHEIN probably more than made up for the lack of shopping these past eight months. Other than SHEIN, I picked up a few things from H&M and Nordstrom too.  I love the Caslon booties I bought back here so much that I decided to see if I could buy another pair of the same ones but they unfortunately didn't have my size anymore (I also just want to add that I absolutely love and often wear the thigh-high UGG boots I mentioned in that post too). However, they did have the Caslon booties in new color variations so got them both to see (the Brown unfortunately didn't have a 4

February Haul + Breakfast Bagel Strata Recipe

The very last item I picked up from H&M that broke the buy and return cycle was a $2 striped tee that I thought would be a nice basic to have - I can't wait until the day I can have a bigger closet so I can actually see all the pieces I own - I might end up finding a few more basic stripes tees but when I picked it up, I didn't think I had one. :) I was browsing Insta Stories and came across some cute Target finds so made a large purchase at 3AM when I was up from baby B: Left: Denim Trucker Jacket in XS Light Acid Wash . Right: Button-Front Quilted Jacket in XS Blue. Left to right: Fleece Sweatshirt in XS Gold , Who What Wear Polka Dot Crewneck Balloon Sleeve Sweater in XS Brown , Who What Wear Balloon Long Sleeve Top in XS Off White & Who What Wear High-Rise Paperbag Pants in XS Here's a great recipe for a breakfast strata that can be made in advance and then popped in the oven the morning of: BREAKFAST BAGEL STRATA from Parents magazine April 2017 Active Time: 3

January Haul + Roasted Parmesan Garlic Brussels Sprouts Recipe

I've been wanting to try the lululemon Align Crop for a while now and decided to try Amazon's dupe and to compare the two. As mentioned for December, I've been going back to H&M to make returns from their big winter sale so I ended up getting a few more things there.  I keep going back to H&M to make returns and then picking up additional items so it's been a pretty long cycle of purchase/return but the good thing from that is a picked up a bunch more womens/girls pants for $3-$8 each, which I'm really happy about! I also impulsively picked up this cute black and pink plaid girls sweater in a size larger than I normally wear, though it's still not long enough to be worn comfortably over leggings. Lululemon Align Crop 23" in Black  size XXS I finally decided to try the Lululemon Align Crop since there are free shipping and returns and that way, I could also compare it to these Amazon dupes at the same time. The  Lululemon Align Crop  were thinne

December Haul + Baked Fish Fillets Recipe

I didn't shop much the month of December except for a Target coat that caught my eye, two A&F sweaters, and a bunch of blazers and pants that were on crazy sale when I popped into H&M one day. I can never resist a blazer that fits and hope to be able to put them to good use later this year. A surprised me on Christmas with a cute pink pair of UGG booties that are much cuter on than the traditional shape. I didn't purchase them but thought they deserved a spot here. :) Left to right: Flannel shirt , Tie-Dye Hoodie , Chenille Sweater , Puff-Sleeve Sweater , all XXS. I placed an order with Abercrombie after being influenced by Insta and ended up really liking the two sweaters on the right, which are a similar pretty seafoam green color.      Left: Patagonia Down Parka in girls L . This Patagonia girls down parka caught my eye on a Nordstrom ad and I ordered it on a whim to try but when it arrived, my mom liked it and claimed it for herself. :D I really like how lightweig
