#35 Treat Yourself Tuesday

Today I’m reminded of why I created this little treat yoself link-up on Tuesdays.

They’re by far my least favorite day of the week and this morning I totally needed a little reminder of all the awesome ways I’ve treated myself over the week. Who’s with me?

Treat Yourself Tuesday Badge

If you’re new to TYT, head over here to read about why I am a supporter and advocate for treating ourselves – even in the smallest of ways – everyday! I promise you will fall in love with the idea and once you do, please link up below :)

To get started, tonight I’m treating myself to a little shopping after work! This weekend, I realized I don’t own any Saturday-casual, brunch-style clothes. I typically wear workout gear, work attire or very glam dresses, none of which are great for strolling around town on a Saturday afternoon. While I love living in my Lulu, I’m looking for something a bit more stylish, yet still casual, for the weekends – like in the photo below.


Wish me luck – I will most definitely be recruiting your help tonight on Instagram :)

I did find a few pieces during my shopping trip to Target on Sunday. I haven’t decided if I’m keeping them, but if I do, I’ll share them with you next week!

Chipotle happened this week… obviously.

I’ve been taking Mitchell on an early morning walk the days I don’t run in the mornings. While living in Minneapolis, I walked him every morning in the warm months. It’s great for him to get out and stretch his legs, but it also wakes me up and gives me some quiet time before the craze of the day begins.

Saturday and Sunday were HUGE treats. Weekends without plans are sometimes the best!

Although I haven’t made it back to the gym as often as I’d like to over the past week, the few times I’ve hit up Body Pump were great. Body Pump is by far my favorite weight class!

Finally, every night before bed, I’ve been treating myself to some relaxation with my new Young Living essential oil diffuser. I’ve been diffusing lavender and have slept like a baby. The stuff is magic! If you’d like to learn more about essential oils, reach out to Melanie. She’d be more than happy to share some great information with you!

How did you treat yourself this week? What is your “casual Saturday” fashion? Any good sales I need to know about before I head to the mall tonight?


  1. You are the first person (blogger) Ive come across that uses Young Living products. My aunt is a big time distributer & has such great success. I’ve tried a few products, one being for allergies. So awesome!

    • Oh wow, that’s awesome! I’d love to know if she has any thoughts on an oil that helps with hair loss :)

  2. I love long dresses or maxi skirts; they’re comfy and easy! Just grab a necklace and cute bag and you’re out the door. They are my staples for looking pulled together.

    • Same here, Brynn! Sadly they aren’t great for walking around windy Chicago in the summer time. Looks like I’m going to have to break out the shorts!

  3. My go to summer outfit is a pair of shorts, loose top, funky sandals. I have a pair of red adn white pinstripe shorts that I could live in if possible!

  4. I’m so with you on plan-free weekends! Definitely a treat! We’ve been out of town for the last 4 weekends in a row – for various things: birthdays, Easter, graduations, Mother’s Day, etc. I’m SO looking forward to this coming weekend where I have absolutely no plans!

    I LOVE those red and white shorts. I’ve gotten a few pieces recently at Target that are super cute for a casual day out and about. Good luck!

  5. I’ve heard great things about lavender for sleep, I need to get onto it as my sleep lately has been a bit crap! Saturday outfits depend on the weather in winter if I’m going to brunch I am all about boots, jeans, scarves and a big coat. In summer it’s all shorts, comfy plain tshirts and thongs – what you call flip flops ;)

  6. I basically live in my Lulu clothes… Or PJs ;) Bbt says much as I love them, I seriously wouldn’t mind something a little more stylish… at least in the summer months where it’s warm enough to wear nice nice clothes without having to hide them under 100 layers. I’ve always loved a classic black short with a flowy top and some funky shoes. I usually keep my clothes pretty simple and classic and then go all out with accessories.

  7. Gotta love plan-free weekends! My latest treat: I stopped by Target Sunday and picked up a few things, including a maxi skirt that i’m basically in love with.

  8. Morning walks sound so relaxing!

  9. Thanks for the shoutout! I had lavender diffusing every moment I was home yesterday. Any time I feel any edge of a headache I either start diffusing it or inhale from the bottle and it helps me immensely!

  10. I’ve had to try really hard to treat myself with walks. It’s so important to me to get out in the nice weather but sometimes I get so busy and run out of time. I need to make it a priority.

  11. I also treated myself to chipotle this week- I couldn’t resist. Those burrito bowls. Nom nom.

    I definitely treated myself this week to the Advocare 24 DC Bundle! So far so good! I never knew you used to live in Minneapolis… very cool! I love the cities. We live out west in Watertown, but we get out to the cities a lot since my family lives there. Question for ya’… what do you get from Chipotle on your salad to make it Advocare friendly? Have a great Tuesday!

  14. Good luck with shopping this afternoon! I love when I know exactly what I want, but once I have a picture in my head of what I want, it’s like it doesn’t exist and I can almost always never find it hahaha. Oh I need to try that lavender oil thing!! I have trouble sleeping, so if that would help, that would be amazing!
    Chelsea @ A Fit LittleOne recently posted…Just Call Me MatchmakerMy Profile

  15. I have a few pair of dressy shorts that are perfect for day dates and summer nights when you want to look cute without having to be too dressed up. I hope you find some cute clothes tonight!!!

    Walks with the pup are always a treat. I have been taking mine out a lot more now that it is nice. :)
    Leslie @ Life Begins @ 30? recently posted…Treat Yourself Tuesday #12My Profile

  16. Ok, love the cute outfit, those shorts are adorable. And girl, you ALWAYS make me want Chipotle. I hope when we move to FL there is one closer to us than there is now!

  17. woo hoo for bodypump + chipotle. :)

  18. It’s pretty funny because I used to go shopping ALL the time, but for some reason within the last 6 months or so, I just haven’t felt like it. What the heck has happened to me!?! Although, now I’m going to need some maternity clothes, so I guess I’ll be going on a shopping spree in the very near future! ;-)

  19. I’ve heard a lot of things about essential oils, but I’ve never tried any before. Have you tried any other flavors (scents/kinds…what exactly would you call them?) I know there are a ton of them out there with different purposes!
    Stephanie @ My Freckled Life recently posted…What is Barre?My Profile

  20. I love morning walks! It’s just good being outside before the day begins and your stuck inside an office all day. I definitely need some new clothes too! Let me know what you find!

  21. I’ve been starting to feel the spring shopping itch! I love buying spring/summer clothes! I like to wear shorts or capris and flawy tanks for a nice and casual outfit!

  22. Oh man now I really want Chipotle!!! :)

  23. Tuesdays are usually my hardest day. The busy craziness of Monday is gone and now you are just looking ahead at the long work week. Chipotle and shopping sounds like the perfect treat!

  24. I could use some Chipotle right about now :) Good luck with the shopping!

  25. Have so much fun shopping! Looking forward to seeing what you find! :)

  26. I’m right there with you on the lack of casual summer clothes. I have t-shirts and workout shorts galore, but barely anything to wear on the occasions where I shouldn’t look like I just finished a run :P . The casual clothes I do have are all stupid old, and I don’t like most of them, AND half of them look exactly the same. I desperately need to make time to go shopping so I actually have something to wear now that winter clothes are no longer necessary.
    Bethany @ accidental Intentions recently posted…Thursday ThingsMy Profile

  27. I cannot wait to see what all you find when you are out shopping. I’ll keep a look out at Instagram tonight ;) And yay for early morning walks. I need to start incorporating these back in. Sometimes it is SO hard for me to get out of bed in the morning though, but I always feel amazing afterwards.

  28. I’ve still been wearing jeans and a sweater since it’s been chilly here yet. I hope it warms up soon! I’m ready to bust out the shorts! Then I’ll live in shorts and v-neck tees until fall.

  33. I’ve been debating on trying essential oils. I’ve heard so many people say that they love them, so I’m thinking that may be a splurge I make in the next few weeks! Good luck shopping tonight!

  34. Ooooh I can’t wait to watch your virtual shopping trip via IG!! I am so with you on the “in-between” clothes. Love my lulus, love my date night stuff, but my daytime wardrobe needs major help. Maybe Ill treat myself to some of the things you find on your shopping trip :)
