Add This to Your List

Linking up with Lauren and Bre to share some things you need to add to your list! When I started collecting things for this post, I realized it was all food at first. Soooo that’s where my mind is. I do have some other items too, but let’s start with the food! Priorities.

**Some affiliate links included where I might make a few cents if you click them. Bitches gotta eat.**


You guys, I know this sounds weird…but I am picky about my olives. I want nice, firm, good tasting olives. I have tried many brands out there, and there are only certain ones I will purchase. This brand has to be my absolute favorite!!! I do 90% of our grocery shopping at Target. Unfortunately, I can only find these at Publix. I would guess other “real” grocery stores have them too. Obviously they are delicious since  the jar is empty. I kept saying, oh I need to get a picture of these, but then….nom nom nom nom.

Picked this up on a whim at Target Sunday. You can see I have portioned out an exact serving of Wheat Thins and this cheese. This is because this stuff is hella good and I could probably eat the entire thing if I am not careful! So. Much. Flavor. This would be the perfect thing to keep on hand if you happen to have surprise visitors and you need a spread. Do people still just “drop by”? I wouldn’t know since our house isn’t on the way to anywhere.

This salad mix is the shit. Spinach, carrots, cabbage, bacon, almonds and cranberries topped with a sweet onion vinaigrette. Just do it! And if you are vegetarian, the bacon is in it’s own pouch so you can just toss it out or save it for your spouse’s plate.


Target is having a dress sale this week. Buy one get one 50% off!!! I have had my eye on this dress since I first saw it a few months back. I told myself I would wait until they were running a sale and here we are! I tried it on Sunday because I was afraid it might be too short. It is actually the perfect length! I ordered it in black and olive!!! (They only had black in my size in stores and ummmm hello 50% makes the second dress $10. How can you not????)

How cute is this shirt?? Target also has this line called Knox Rose. It reminds me of the stuff that I see in boutiques around here. Very cute stuff, everything usually fits true to size and it is very affordable. My store happens to have a really big selection of their stuff compared to a few other locations I have visited. I just love love love this tank! It’s less than $25. I have a hard time finding tank tops and tank dresses that fit right under my arms. Usually everything is way too big and shows too much of my bra from the side, but this was the perfect fit!


I had to get Zoe some new pajamas again last week. I swear these kids grow faster than the grass outside! I really love the Gerber pajamas!!! They are zip front which saves a ton of time. Have you have tried to button 20 buttons on a wriggly 6 month old that wants to be doing anything other than getting her jammies on? Zoe always grows out of these in length with room to grow in the tummy area, so they have a good fit and she seems comfortable in them. They come in two packs or three packs depending on where you are purchasing them. They wash perfectly! I always have about six in each size so that we can go a few days without having to do laundry, so these get worn weekly until she outgrows them and they are still in really good shape when it is time to move up a size. We buy the Carter’s ones from time to time too, but these are more affordable and hold up just as nice.


I ran out of my normal color care conditioner and decided to try something new. I am loving this OGX Orchid Oil one!!! It is less expensive and sulfate free. Win win! The scent is really pretty too! I always have at least two sets of shampoo and conditioner going in the shower at any given time because I find that my hair looks best when I switch it up and use ones with difference benefits.

What have you tried that you are loving lately??? Have you used any of these?

    kids grow like weeds. no joke. every season, we have to get kayla to try on every single piece of clothing because she outgrows half of them. this year she has no more shorts or tanks so i have to buy a bunch soon. thank god for pre-summer sales (and ebates!)

    I love boursin and I can totally eat the whole thing at a time… good, but not good! I rarely look at clothes at Target even though I get my jeans and used to get my work pants there when I needed them more frequently. I need to get in the habit of going over there more! I like that tank but also I already have a striped/lace short and dress so maybe a 3rd piece is too much? Thanks for linking up!

    I love when Target runs their dress sales!

    Good to know about the cheese, we actually do have people just stop by. Not terribly often, but often enough that I think the cheese would be put to good use!

    I do not like blue cheese but I LOVE blue cheese stuffed olives!

  • Reply Laura May 30, 2017 at 11:15 am

    Look at you bein all good and portioning out serving sizes!! And that’s so good about the dress not vein too short- it definitely looks it in the pictures, but I guess those models have long legs or something. 🙂

    Ok, it’s official, you have the best affiliate caption! Dying! I wish I liked blue cheese because everyone always raves about blue cheese stuffed olives. I know, I know, I’m sure I’m missing out. Beautifully Candid

    I’m a big fan of most OGX hair care stuff! I haven’t tried that orchid oil but I’ll have to! I was just in Target for a swimsuit since there was a small sale on the Cartwheel app!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm May 30, 2017 at 3:53 pm

    Ooh that cheese sounds so good! I’ll have to look for it. I love cheese and that’s exactly why I buy the 25 calorie wedges… I would over indulge!

    We buy those blue cheese olives to make dirty martinis at home. So yumm! I buy those Publix salad kits all the time but this one is new to me…The conditioner sounds amazing too!

    Target for the win as usual, and how adorable are those jammies! We recently started stocking up on all the footed pajamas for Serena since girlfriend is FINALLY sleeping without a swaddle. Yep… only took 7 months 😛

    Love love love trying new things so I just adore posts like this! I got that cheese to go on a cheeseboard and it is super delicious! And now I’m running to Ulta to get that Orchid Oil!!

    That salad looks amazing and I want to try those olives! I wish we had Publix in Seattle! I need to hit up that BOGO dress sale at Target right now! I’ve also never heard of the Knox Rose line, so I’m going to look for that too. That’s a really cute top.

  • Reply Danielle May 31, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    I love that Boursin cheese. Sooo good. I would try those olives, but I am not a blue cheese fan. Love that dress and white top though!!!

  • Reply La Caleya June 1, 2017 at 4:11 am

    Love that selection!!!!

    Mine is actually: Karité Butter from Le charme d’orient (beauty), home made focaccia with olive oil from my town (South of Spain) and rosemary from my garden (food) 😀

    Nice blog <3

    Target is so interesting in how they stock their locations. We have ZERO Knox Rose items. My sister’s store has a TON. I guess it must be demographic based. They had that dress sale a few weeks ago too… and I definitely bought 4 dresses to make it through my summer events. 🙂 XO – Alexandra

    And that dress from Target is SO cute! Good pick!

    I totally took advantage of the Target dress sale! I spent no less than $175 on 2 different styles of dresses in different colors (yay work dresses where I don’t have to shave my legs) and a pair of sandals.
