3 Tips for Shopping Target Clearance

3 awesome tips for getting the best clearance deals Target has to offer!

You guys, it’s fine. I’m just your typical target-obsessed twenty-something. I can (and sometimes do) spend hours in Target, wandering around and checking out literally everything they have to offer. The thing is though, that I refuse to pay full price for things there. I’ve become somewhat of an expert on shopping the target clearance racks. So I’m sharing three of my best tips so that you can also be an expert and take advantage of the greatness that is ‘clearance-only target patronage.’ Just to make it more fun I thought I’d bring y’all along on a shopping trip with me. It’s all in the video! [Read more...]

Valentine’s Day and Lace


Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and my social media feeds are starting to fill with pinks and reds, the classic signature colors of the holiday. In the past, just like other special occasions and holidays that come once a year (New Years, St. Patrick’s Day, etc.) Valentine’s Day would have called for a new outfit that would most likely be worn once and then forgotten. But with my New Year’s resolution to both make use of what I have already and to buy pieces that are more versatile and reusable, this year my Valentine’s Day date-night look is a little less pink and a lot more me (think lace and black). Of course there is nothing wrong with getting decked out in pinks or pastels or hearts if that is something that you will wear more than once in 2015, but if you are like me and not so into the super girly or intensely bright colors, then this post should be right up your alley!

His & Hers Valentines Day Giveaway! ($600 value)


Valentines is just around the corner and at least at my house, hubby doesn’t get super excited about this holiday, haha. He is pretty frugal so he doesn’t want me to buy him anything, but then of course he wants to/feels like he should get me something, and then I always feel bad! Anyway, I was just thinking how awesome it would be to be able to give him a $300 gift card not from our bank account, and take care of my own gift as well! One of you lucky duckies will get that chance!

How does a Valentine’s Day His & Hers Gift Card Giveaway sound?  $300 Gift Card for Him and a $300 Gift Card for Her ($600 Value)! Awesome, right?

Happy Weekend: Links to Love

St. Thomas weekend

Hi homies! As you may have noticed, we are back to five regular posts per week so Links to Love is going to be on Saturdays now.

This weekend my little sister is visiting. She’s 7 years younger than me and the fact that she’s in college now makes me feel old. That, and the fact that I haven’t heard of any of the boy bands she listens to (except one direction – I don’t live under a rock…) We’re also going to bless my little baby girl at church tomorrow so that’s going to be really great.

I love love love this skirt. It’s on sale ($26!) and would be so perfect for a Valentine’s date!

So you’ve probably seen @TargetDoesItAgain on Instagram, but have you seen @WhoaWaitWalmart? New fave. And I think @omgliterallydead is hilarious.

I’m going to slowly collect all these BabyLit books for Junebug’s library. They’re too cute for words.

I have an obsession with Loretta Lynn right now. I first got this tribute album and fell in love, so my husband got me her billboard hits for Christmas and now I’m about to watch the movie about her. 

I really liked this article – 10 Scientifically Proven Ways to be Incredibly Happy. I really like the suggestion of planning a trip – even if you don’t end up going! Haha. Having something to look forward to does make a lot of difference. Which is why I chose the photo above. It’s from my last caribbean cruise a few years ago, reminding me that I will be cruising again in May with my family. I absolutely cannot wait! Some people love cruises and some hate them. I’ve been on three, and love them because they’re a relaxed, affordable way to see multiple places. I like downtime on the ship as much as being in-port. Also, the dinners have always been amazing on the ships I’ve been on. I do get a little sick of the breakfast/lunch buffet food by the end of a week though. What about you? Do you like to cruise?!
