The Best Things To Buy At Target with $60

Wednesday, August 16, 2017
As you may know we had a Giveaway that ended Monday and now I can announce the winner.  Drumroll...

Please...

Louder with the drumroll...

Please...

Seriously, our winner is Michelle James!  Congratulations!!  Now check your email, get your eCards, head to Target, get you your fancy, high calorie coffee confection of choice at the Starbucks inside and go shopping!  Well, that's a mouthful if you say it out loud.

I thought it would be cool to compile a well-rounded shopping lists in case our lovely winner, or anyone else, needed some inspo on how to spend $60 at Target.  So it's not the $250 you normally spend when your budget was $100 (#amiright) but $60 can get you far.  Let's see how far it can get with a few self-care items.  



You can click the items in the pic above to take you Target.  

Not bad, eh?  So I did cheat a little and use my RedCard discount so you should too!  I know it's so easy to spend loads of money at Target on things you need want but I do think if you stick to your guns about a budget, you can seriously walk out of there with some change in your pocket.  Be strong!





*This is not a sponsored post, I just really love Target.  However, if you are reading this Target PR peeps, hit me up.  I'd love to work with you!


Goals, Golden Summer & Giveaway {Closed}

Today is my birthday!


I love birthdays no matter how old I get (so far), ha!  I have to say however, that it can be a time of reflection and self-assessment.  So with my birthday this year, I'm jumping on the "post your goals on the blog" bandwagon, mainly for accountability.  It is written and shared.  This helps me be more accountable to myself and accountable to my readers.  I'm just sharing a short list of 5 goals for now.

End of Summer Sales and Steals

Monday, August 7, 2017
School is about to start and that means Fall is right around the corner.  The retail (especially fashion) industry really likes to push new seasonal items so of course, before the current season is even over, you can find tons of items on sale so they can make room for the new stuff.  With that, I found some great end of season deals.  August is a great time to shop for summer deals and for the coming Fall season.  It also happens to be my birthday month so I do enjoy August quite a bit!


Instagram Update: August 2017

Friday, August 4, 2017
It's Friday, ladybugs and male ladybugs (which are still called ladybugs, right?  So I guess there's no need for differentiation...).  I'm so easily distracted, lol... ok, so Happy Friday guys!!  I'm ready for this one.  It's been a long week.  Little Briggs hasn't been sleeping great and I am exhausted... 

I'm so proud of myself for keeping my promise to you to post more.  Remember from here?  I'm hoping in the next few weeks I keep this momentum going and really push out some great content for you guys (#goals).  

I'm sure you could use some distraction, like me, so here's what I've been up to on Instagram.

Feeling glowy and golden rockin' a Mohawk bun. Would you guys be interested in a tutorial on how to do a Mohawk bun??  If so, let me know in the comments.  The sweater is one I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (this color is sold out but black and pink are in stock!)
