Target Spring/Summer 2013 Haul

Monday, April 29, 2013

I want to start off by saying if you're not clothes shopping at Target you are missing out! Target is delivering the hottest looks for way less than the competition.

People ask if I like the low prices of Target why don't I shop at Forever 21. Well, there are a couple reasons. First, I get a panic attack every time I'm in there because there is no order, it's complete chaos. Second, there are too many people in there trying to maneuver through the tight isles and scrummage around the racks. Third, the clothes can be too trendy and I want clothes that can last more than a season (talking about style and quality). Lastly, their return policy sucks to put it bluntly.

Let's get back on track. I did some shopping in store and online this time! I have a dress, two skirts, and two tops to inspire you to get out and spruce up your spring/summer wardrobe. I didn't have a lot of time when I took the photos so I'm actually not wearing shoes or jewelry. Please forgive!

Friday Fingers! *Pink Friday*

Friday, April 26, 2013

Hello Friends! We made it through another work week! Success.

This week I went with a simple, yet fun color. Pink! I LOVE pink nails. Light, dark or hot pinks always perk up my fingers.

This week I chose Pink Friday from Nicki Minaj's OPI collection. The collection launched in January of 2012. [Side note: I also picked up Save Me from the same collection] Pink Friday is a soft but bright pink. Looks great with my pale hands but even better with a tan!

Drugstore Beauty Haul!

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

The ladies at the Chanel counter know me by name, I'm a proud V.I.B at Sephora and I know my way around the MAC counter. Yes, it's safe to say I love designer makeup as much as the next girl. However, I also love a good deal. Lately, I've been buying beauty and makeup not from behind the counter but off the shelf! The following are some recent budget-friendly purchases that I made.

I wasn't in the market for a new lipstick. But when my sister +Jessica Kern showed up to a family event wearing this bright pink lip stick I was intrigued. It was from the Kate Moss for Rimmel London collection.

Kate Young for Target Review

Monday, April 15, 2013

Yesterday, April 14, was the launch of yet another Target collaboration... Kate Young for Target. In this blog entry I am going to showcase some of my favorite dresses and accessories that caught my eye.

First, a little bit about Kate Young. Kate started her career working for Anna Wintour at Vouge in the fashion department. She also worked at Interview magazine. Kate currently consults with well known brands as well as popular designers for shows and collections. She is also highly sought after for red carpet events by celebrities like Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman.

My local Target had seven dresses from the collection and one bodysuit. I tried on three of the dresses available.

Friday Fingers! *Pretty Pastels*

Friday, April 12, 2013

It's been a rainy Friday here in Pennsylvania. However, my pastel favorites are sure to brighten your day!

I have a busy weekend so my nails are casual. This weekend is a big fundraiser for the school where I work. My office is in charge of running the evening's festivities. I kept my nails to a regular old polish in case I needed to do any quick touch ups!

I could not decide on a color for this weekend. I first had ballet slippers then not just a pretty face and then a nude color from my Deborah Lippmann True Blood collection. That's when I picked up my tried and true, fiji! This is by far one of my all time favorite colors. In case you haven't noticed...I own quite a bit of nail polish and so to say that is kinda a big deal.

Lay's Flavor Finalist - Cheesy Garlic Bread

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

We have finally reached Part 3 of my Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" review. Today, I am reviewing cheesy garlic bread!

Just like the bag of chicken & waffles, I did not purchase this bag of chips. My mom found the chips at her local Weis Markets. I was unable to find chicken & waffles or cheesy garlic bread down by me so I sent my mom on the hunt for them too. Since I did not purchase the chips I am unable to let you know the price.

Friday Fingers! *No More Waity, Katie*

Friday, April 5, 2013

It's Friday!! Time to celebrate with a fresh coat of polish! This editon of Friday Fingers is going to be brief...I'll explain.

I am going bowling with friends this weekend and EVERY TIME I bowl, I chip a nail. I have no idea why but it happens. Therefore, I didn't want to do a creative or time consuming look only to have it ruined by a chipped nail.

This week my nails are painted with butter LONDON's, No More Waity, Katie. The color was launched on March 1, 2011 in honor of the Royal Wedding (April 29, 2011). There were limited quantities and it was priced at $14/per bottle.

Lay's Flavor Finalist - Chicken & Waffles

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Welcome to Part 2 of my Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" review. Today, I am reviewing chicken & waffles.

I did not purchase this bag of chips. My wonderful mother found this flavor of chip at her local Weis Markets and therefore I am not sure how much she paid for the bag of chips either.
