Always Hungry Tank + 3 Healthy Snacks to Keep You Fueled On-The-Go

Happy Monday, my loves!! Hope your week is off to a healthy, happy & productive start! 
Can we talk about this Always Hungry tank!? It was made for me! {haha} While I was shopping The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I came across this super cute graphic tank and even tho it wasn't on sale I could NOT talk myself out of buying it! I seriously am always hungry, you guys! Adam cracked up when I put it on the other day because its so true!  

We also need to talk about these Zella High Waist Moto Leggings! This is my first pair of Zella leggings (thank you Nordstrom Sale) and I'm totally obsessed! They seriously fit & feel amazing + hug in all the right places, girls! They are high waisted but not crazy high - I'm not a fan of not having belly button, ya feel me!? I've also linked up 2 of my fitness must-haves: a cute & supportive sports bra + my favorite Nike Running Shoes - Zoom Vomero 12 - I've gone thru 5 pairs of these shoes - they support my flat feet & feel super light while I'm running!

In the spirit of this tank, I thought it would be fun to share 3 of my favorite snacks that help to keep me fueled throughout my busy, on-the-go days!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Active Wear Top Picks

Happy Weekend, loves!
Earlier this week, I mentioned in my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks Post that I would be taking advantage of these deep discounts to stock up on & give my active wear drawer a little fresher upper! I purchased a couple items in the store earlier this week and just added a few more pieces to my bag this afternoon! {Whoops} I did walk away with one item that was not on sale, but I just could NOT help myself because this Always Hungry tank was seriously meant for me!! You guys! I literally am ALWAYS HUNGRY!! haha Any way, I did link it just in case you happen to have the same problem as moi and want to wear it proudly!! {LOL}

Sunday with The Stones + The Best Sales of The Weekend

Hey Hey, TGIF, loves! Hope everyone had wonderful week!! Life has been pretty crazy lately, I seriously feel like all I've been doing for the last 2 months is work, work, workout, and work some more. Real Estate has really taken off for me this year (I didn't really jump into it like I should have when I first got my license last year), however, I'm still personal training clients as well and of course trying to stay consistent with blogging. With all that being said, I've somehow gotten away from sharing all the little moments in between - workouts, healthy eats & personal stuff such as Adam's parents being in town for a visit last weekend. 



So, my goal is to make the time to get back to sharing all the other stuff because there's so much more to life than outfit posts, ya know!? 

{we have so many flowers around the house right now and they make me so happy} 


So Adam's parents got into Charlotte last Saturday around 7pm and we cooked up our current favorite meal for them -- Asian Bowls!! We have been OBSESSED with making these yummy bowls for the last few months. Basically you make your bowl of rice or noodles (or both if your Adam) lol We do purple cabbage, carrots, bok choy, edamame, scallions, we make an Asian inspired cucumber salad to add to the mix, tomatoes, sesame seeds, Thai basil (from our garden) all kindsa deliciousness and then pick a protein - tuna, salmon and/or add a soft boiled or poached egg! Its SO good, you guys! We got this insane Albino Salmon from Clean Catch - OMG. 

Sunday was super chill and we ate SO much! haha We grabbed brunch and a mimosa at Halcyon, checked out the current exhibit at The Bechtler Museum, went for a little walk on The Greenway behind us, made the most delicious tomato, basil, & mozzarella salad and picked up this super fun "forty" of rosé. I mean, how could we not!?

We have been eating so.many.tomatoes. We have a couple tomato plants in our baby potted garden but my parents have the most gorgeous and delicious tomatoes this season as well as jalapeños & banana peppers + Adam and I are growing cucumbers for the first time! If you've never planted a garden, I encourage you to do so. Its bring us so much joy and not to mention homegrown goodies are WAY better than store bought. 

{I'm obsessed with these DRY Sparkling Sodas - The cucumber flavor is my go-to but their newest flavor for summer, watermelon, is pretty bomb.com}

 As if we didn't already have enough to eat, we went to Ok-u for sushi and finally ended our Sunday Funday at Two Scoops for some ice cream! I was scrolling thru Instagram on our way there and just so happened to see that it was #NationalIceCreamDay -- we had no idea -- we walked into Two Scoops and the place was bonkers. I got my favorite flavor - mint & cookies - so YUM! 

Whenever Adam's parents come to town, we get Jack!! Is he not the cutest!? Adam just brought him in from a walk and he immediately returned to his bed. lol 


So I know everyone is going crazy for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale right now (public access just started today!) but there's some pretty awesome other sales going on over the weekend that I wanted to share with you guys!

Thanks so much for stopping in! Have a beautiful weekend! xx

Much Love,

2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Top Sale Picks

Happy Monday, Loves!! Hope everyone had the best weekend! Adam's parents were in town for a quick visit. On Saturday night, we cooked up one of our favorite meals we've been obsessed with lately -- Asian Bowls! So yummy, you guys!!! Sunday was a fun day of lunch at Halcyon, some artsy-fartsy time at The Bechtler Museum, a little walk on The Greenway and sushi dinner at Ok-u! 

So, let's talk about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Since there are so.many.items to choose from, I wanted to share some of my Top Picks from each category to make this incredible sale a bit easier to navigate! Just a reminder, the #Nsale is all about [brand new] Fall arrivals at Deeply Discounted Prices! Yassss.

 As of now, the sale is still only open to Card Holders until July 20. July 21 the sale is open to the masses and runs until August 6! If your not a Nordstrom Card Holder, you might want to seriously consider getting one - even if its only to shop this sale. The most popular items sell out super fast, my loves! There were so many pieces I wanted to get 2 days ago and they were already sold out in my size. poopadoops!

Alright, so here they are... my Top Picks for the biggest sale of the year! Wee

Boots, Booties & Shoes: 

You guys know I am obsessed with boots and a girl can never have too many, amiright!? I mean, can we talk about all the heart eyes as I scroll this years sale selection of shoes & boots/booties - eek! I had to exercise some serious restraint from clicking "add to bag" any more than I already did! #TheStruggleIsReal haha

Active Wear:

My active wear drawer is in need of a serious refresh! And I'm using the #Nsale as the perfect opportunity to do just that! Its kinda crazy, but, athleisure items can be just as expensive as real clothes and there are some REALLY awesome deals on some of my favorite brands! 

Cozy Cardigans & Sweaters:

Sweaters & Cardigans...is there anything more cute & cozy for the cold weather months!? Cardigans are one of my must-haves for Fall! The Madewell Ryder Cardigan is available in this years sale and I actually fell in love with this cardi last year - it is crazy soft & cozy and makes for the perfect light layer for Fall or under a coat as the temps get a little colder. 

Bags:

I am pretty set on handbags but if your in need of a new purse, this would be the time to snag one! There are some really fabulous carryall's available in the sale - many are marked down by $200 or more! Here are my favorites below: 

Coats & Jackets:
Similar to the handbags above, coats & jackets tend to be on the pricier side of things, so if your in need a new coat for fall/winter now would be the perfect time to purchase one! Most of these coats are discounted by $200+!
I've picked my favorites from crops & bombers to puffers & wrap coats! 

Jeans & Leggings:

There are some awesome denim deals to be found in this sale!! A great pair of jeans is a must in every girls wardrobe. Some of my favorite designer denim is on MAJOR sale! Also, there are some super cute leggings for those on-the-go days! 

Tops & Blouses:

There are SO many cute tops & blouses to choose from in this years Anniversary Sale!! I walked away with some basics to wear over and over again + some super cute tops for date night and/or girls night out. Check out my favorites below:

Between what I spent online + my visit to the store, I think I may have cut myself off from the sale today! ha Stay tuned for some my selection of Beauty Products + Splurge Worthy Pieces! xx

10 Dreamy Dresses for Summer Under $100

How Dreamy is this Dress, you guys!!? I cannot believe I got so lucky to find this dress in my size on double sale! Yassss (insert emoji hallelujah hands) Sometimes I pinch myself because I seriously have THE best luck finding items on sale! I snagged this 'abstraction' maxi dress while Anthropolgie was having one of their famous "Sale is on Sale" where you can take an extra 30% OFF their already discounted items! my favorite way to shop!

Some dresses, like this one, just feel so dreamy, ya know? I feel like I'm floating in this dress + it just screams summer! I'm SO in love with the colors, the print, the neckline and the length! I wore this dress to a fun Belk Fashion Show a couple weeks ago with these ankle cuff sandals from Sam Edelman - I got these close to a month ago and they have been my new favorites! They look super cute with denim cutoffs, too! If these sandals are a little out of your price point, you might like these similar Steve Madden ones here! They are SO cute and tie around the ankle! (I've link them below for you to see, too!) 

There are so many gorgeous maxi dresses for Summer -- bold colors, playful prints & fun florals -I've rounded up my Top 10 below! 

! Hope everyone has a fun weekend! Adam's parents will be in town from Raleigh and we haven't seen them in months so it will be nice to spend some time with the Stone Family! :) Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

Much Love,
