Recent Meals + Pizza + Garden Vegetable Hash from Trader Joe’s

Wednesday posts always seem to sneak up on me.

It’s been a few years since I used to take pictures of (almost) everything I eat. This means that I have to remember to take some photos in order to share what I’ve been eating. I’ll go a few days just eating and living without thinking about Wednesday posts and then suddenly it’s an – oh right, I need to take a few pictures – situation.

So here’s a look at a few meals from the last few days. We are going in no particular order here and I think I have less to share because instead of remembering a few more meals to capture, I’ve been busy with pictures of my Stoney Clover x Target purchases!

Just had to sneak a Stoney Clover picture in this post!

Recent Meals

I saw the Trader Joe’s Garden Vegetable Hash on the shelf while shopping so I decided to buy it as something different to eat.

I cooked it in a pan with olive oil and chickpeas, added extra diced onion, and also added roasted potatoes. This was really good! I read somewhere that people are really liking this garden vegetable hash in omelets. That sounds like a good idea if you eat eggs, which I really do not on a regular basis.

A stop for my weekly salad from Chopt in between going to Target stores on Saturday was very necessary.

After my run and after shopping the Stoney Clover x Target launch earlier in the day, I still needed to check out the other Target locations in my area to see what was left.

What was left were empty shelves! I was not surprised.


No words are needed for my favorite whole wheat margarita pizza and salad combination.

Yesterday I had to go to the post office. I hate going to the post office because the line is always so long. And so slow.

The post office is in the same shopping center as Monte so I figured I would reward my post office wait with a slice of the whole wheat vegetable pizza to bring home for dinner.

With all of the Stoney Clover excitement, let’s not forget it’s Sephora Spring Savings time too! Here are my Sephora picks if you missed the post last week!

Sephora Spring Savings Event + Stoney Clover x Target Tomorrow!



Today is the start of the Sephora Spring Savings Event and tomorrow is the launch of Stoney Clover X Target?!

Way too much excitement for me at once!

The Sephora Spring Savings sale (use code SAVESPRING) is always a great time for me to stock up on my daily skincare products. I have my list ready for this morning and I’ll be adding a few makeup items too.

I’ll share what I buy in another post but for now, I’ve rounded up my top skincare and makeup picks to shop during this spring’s Sephora Spring Savings Event!

I’ve gone in-depth on skincare so frequently that I don’t want to overload this post with my recommendations.

It’s always a good idea to choose anything from Biossance or Drunk Elephant. I currently use or have previously used almost every product from Drunk Elephant’s skincare line.

See my Drunk Elephant skincare routine in this post along with the best clean skincare products in this post.


Sunscreen for everyday under makeup: Biossance SPF 30.  Seriously, this sunscreen is now my favorite when looking for an everyday SPF 30. While I wouldn’t use it for the beach (I need SPF 50), this sunscreen from Biossance is so hydrating and moisturizing, that you can’t believe it’s sunscreen. While I wear it over moisturizer, you can wear it as a moisturizer. I guess it depends upon your skin type.

Makeup Remover:  Drunk Elephant Micellar Water. It literally removes your makeup in one try and does not irritate my eyes at all. I’m super sensitive so even the most “gentle” of removers will burn – not this one!

Gentle Face Cleanser: First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser

Bar Soap/Exfoliating Bar: Drunk Elephant Baby Bar Travel Duo with Case

Hydration Mask: I fell in love this winter with Youth To The People Hydrate & Glow Superberry Mask  I highly recommend it!

Best At-Home Facial Mask: Drunk Elephant Sukari Babyfacial AHA + BHA Mask

Lip Masks: I talk about lip masks often but really, once you try one, you can’t NOT use a lip mask every night. The Kissu Lip Mask is life-changing for your lips. Also worth trying is Ilia Lip Wrap.I really see results from both lip mask products.

Body Lotion: Go with either Necessaire Body Lotion or Biossance Toning Body Cream.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I wear a lot of makeup from Glossier but I do still shop for makeup at Sephora so here are my recommendations!


The Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation is a nice, clean foundation that won’t irritate your skin but goes on nicely with medium coverage.

If you want a clean foundation with light/medium coverage and an SPF, try the cult-favorite Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40.

Also, consider trying the new foundation with SPF 25 from Kosas.I know I’m buying it during the sale!

My favorite Makeup Primer: Tatcha Silk Canvas

Favorite Concealer: Kosas Revealer Concealer 

Excellent Setting PowderTatcha The Silk Powder Protective Setting Powder

Toning Mist: Biossance Toning Mist is great for hydration, setting makeup, and using jt with your beauty blender.

Best Powder BlushCharlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush

Bronzer/Highlighter Duo: Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow 

Also, I want this Ilia Multi-Stick Cheek and Lip

Favorite Eye Shadow:  Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Palette. While it’s not a “clean” makeup product, I do wear it when I really want to do my eyes up. The colors are so pretty and look so nice. The pigment goes on and stays on so well.

Favorite Eye Liner: Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eye Liner

Favorite Lash Primer: Milk Lash Primer

Really Nice Eyebrow Pencil: Kosas Brow Pop 

Lip Liner: Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Liner

Need Lip Gloss? Try a Kosa Wet Lip Oil Gloss. I also love the Forget the Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss from Lawless.

Oh, and this Balmy Tint Hydrating Lip Balm from Ilia is on my list.


[show_shopthepost_widget id=”4730525″]



Shampoo: If you still aren’t ready to trust me that Olaplex is THE BEST, try out the mini-size shampoo and conditioner as a start.

Also, try Briogeo Don’t Detox & Repair Set before buying the full sizes – I think you will love the Briogeo products but the mini sets give you a chance to try before spending full price.

I rotate Olaplex and Briogeo with Drunk Elephant Shampoo and Conditioner.

Hair Products:

I mentioned a few months ago that I love the DryBar Buttercup Blow Dryer and also use the Half Pint Round Brush when blowing out my hair and the Hold Me Hair Clips.

Stoney Clover X Target

As far as Stoney Clover’s collaboration with Target which launches in-store and online tomorrow, I don’t even have words for this situation. I am pretty sure the collection will sell out online before I even wake up but I do plan to check everything that I’ve already “hearted” in my Target account to see what I can order. And then, I will go to the Target stores in my area first thing in the morning.

Stoney Clover at Target?! Plus Other Friday Favorites

I don’t even want to discuss the Stoney Clover X Target collaboration because the more people who know, the faster this INSANE COLLECTION is going to sell out.

Like O-M-G.

In stores and online at Target on April 2, you can get Stoney Clover pouches, patches, totes, duffels, CLOTHES, shoes, SUITCASES, pool floats, towels, pet accessories, beauty products, and more.

The Stoney Clover X Target collection is already viewable online so I’ve already started to heart the items I want to get. Honestly, I want almost everything! How could I not at these price points?!

In all likelihood, the collection will sell out online before I’m even awake on April 2 so I will likely just head to the Targets in my area to see what’s still in stock in stores!

Other Friday Favorites

Love this tie-dye swim cover up.

The color and style of these bubble jelly slides caught my attention although I mostly wear white sandals at every opportunity.

These pink lucite sandals look fun.

I love these shorts every time I see them but the price seems high for what they are. Yet, I always come back to them.

Every brand has a tennis skirt this year. I also like this version from Beyond Yoga.

If only I didn’t wear prescription sunglasses, these heart shades would be an immediate purchase.

I’ve been using this Biossance Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 under my makeup on a daily basis for a month or so now and LOVE IT. It’s so hydrating and creamy, it feels like a moisturizer but it’s sunscreen.

I am trying to get my hands on the Ilia Multi-Stick Cheek & Lip but the one shade I want is always sold out.

I’ve been using the Ilia Lip Wrap Overnight Lip Mask instead of the Tatcha Kissu Mask just because I wanted to try it. I prefer the lip mask from Tatcha but the Lip Wrap from Ilia is still a good choice. I think it comes down to personal opinion and preference. I like the thickness of the Tatcha lip mask but Ilia still gets the job done.

Also, I highly recommend this Hydrate and Glow Mask from Youth to the People. I know I’ve mentioned it before but I’m mentioning it again because it’s really that good.
