June Haul + Green Bean Stuffed Mushrooms

Image
I shopped a lot online at Express and Target but only kept one from each for the month of June:




I love the look of these Target shorts but they do wrinkle easily - also in love with these Amazon sandals, which look even prettier in person. Based on reviews, I got the adjustable strap ones and they fit really well on me in size 4.5. :)

Though I didn't take a photo of them before they were gobbled up, here's a quick and yummy recipe for 'healthy' stuffed mushrooms:

May Haul + Amazon/Target Home Finds

Image
Since we are still sheltering in place, I'd like to think that I calmed things down a lot while online shopping for clothes, which I did, but I have to admit that I did place many more orders than I ever would have on Amazon and Target for home stuff. May's haul is just a few things from Old Navy on sale and a pair of jeans from Express.




Here are some recent try-ons from Express, Old Navy, and Target:





I don't usually share things I purchased that aren't clothing or accessory related but many of these things I picked up from Amazon and Target have made my life easier so here goes:

Here are a bunch more things not included in the picture above because they're better shown while in use:

April Haul + Cooking

Now that we've been sheltering in place for two months now, I succumbed to shopping a ton online at Amazon, Old Navy, Target, and other places I've been influenced to by Instagram so this month's haul is from several places:



Here are a few American Eagle, Old Navy, Nordstrom, and Target try-ons:

I love the colors of the sweater and have to say these popular Aerie leggings are super soft and comfy.

This tee is super soft but I don't love the fit so might do some custom snipping at the neckline and bottom. I also finally got influenced on Instagram to try Spanx faux leather leggings, which fit well in the cropped length on me.



March Haul + Grand Cayman Island!

March's haul consists of just two items each from Express and Target.



I stopped by Express to use some coupons I had that were going to expire soon and loved all the new colors they had on the floor - dusty blues, pinks, and cocoa. I ended up trying on a few things but purchased online instead since they don't carry XXS in stores. It is awesome though that they can buy it online for you in store and ship to you for free.





We took a trip to Grand Cayman Islands in early March, not realizing how much things were changing back at home while we were away. The day we flew back, I found out I was to work from home, which was so unprecedented that I was shocked speechless. Little did we know how serious this really was and in a way, we were lucky to have gone when we did or else the trip wouldn't have happened at all because if we had known at all how serious it was, we wouldn't have went. Since returning home from that trip, we have stayed home to this day aside from the quic…
