Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was full of good food and fun with friends. I also did some workouts, re-organized my closets and cleaned my apartment. It was the perfect weekend at home.
Today I’m sharing everything noteworthy on my radar this month. Hope you enjoy!
Dainty jewelry is my favorite and these earrings have quickly become my go-tos. They are a great price and I’ve actually given them as a gift about half a dozen times. I have the gold ones but the rose gold are also soooo pretty in person. Also, if you’ve never been to Catbird in Williamsburg while in Brooklyn, I highly recommend checking it out. The shop is full of eye candy!
Truffle Clarity Clutch Large:
I’ve shared this clutch in travel posts before (see my travel essentials here) but wanted to share it as part of this month’s Noteworthy as it recently got restocked. A lot of you guys have told me you bought this + love it which makes me so happy! It has a lot of uses but I use it to carry all my toiletries when I travel. The Large fits a ton (more than you think!) and I’ve never once had issues with it at TSA when in my carry on. I don’t go on any trips without this!
Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide:
I’m working on a larger fitness update about my current workout routine (it’s been a while since I shared what I’ve been doing!) but if you follow me on Instagram you know I started the Bikini Body Guide workouts in early July. I did five weeks of the beginner workouts and this morning I started Week 3 of the training workouts. I truly cannot believe how hard this 3 x per week workout is! It is 7 minute circuits you cycle through for 28 minutes and the workouts are separated into Legs, Arms & Abs and Full Body. I finish every workout dripping in sweat. There’s also an app that a lot of you guys told me you love but I prefer to have the printed out PDF so I’m not distracted by my phone as I power through the workouts.
Stone + Strand:
While in Portland my friend told me about this jewelry brand and color me obsessed now! Per the aforementioned affinity for dainty jewelry, I want one of everything on this site! They have so many pretty earrings and necklaces but I especially love all their beautiful rings that are perfect for stacking. Next time I have reason to celebrate I’m going to treat myself to a piece or two.

Anything you guys have been loving this month?
p.s. last month’s Noteworthy & things I’ve bought and loved recently.
yeeeeeees for bbg!
thank goodness for our accountability group!
I love the Truffle Clarity Clutch! I’d also love to hear how your accountability group works! Is it by group chat/text/email? Does everyone message when they’ve completed their workout? I’d like to do something similar with my friends, but I’m unsure about the logistics. Thanks!
So we do it by email! It really is so helpful. Carly set it up & she sends an email every Sunday night to tee us all up / give words of motivation. We all weigh in throughout the week sharing our experiences. It has helped me power through when I think I can’t go on as I think “I have to be able to tell the group I completed the workout!” Carly shared more about it here: https://www.carlytheprepster.com/2018/08/workout-accountability.html I hope you do it with your friends & if you do please do let us know 🙂
Ok you, Carly and Merritt are all making me want to join BBG! I’ve really fallen off my fitness wagon this summer (been having too much fun to go to the gym and now I’m so out of my routine I don’t know how to start again), and this sounds so good. But I wish I’d started sooner so I could join your accountability group (which is exactly what I think I need to keep me in line). Also is there a way to see video of the moves or is it just diagrams like you’ve printed + shown above? I’m worried I won’t always know how to get the form or technique correct from diagrams alone!
Hope you have the best week!
DO IT!! And you can join our accountability group still as we’re all on different weeks (Or at least I am :)) I can add you. And as for form the app shows you how to do the moves so you may want to go that route!
