FEED USA + Target Review

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I love all the collaborations that Target brings to us! However,  I am most excited for the FEED USA + Target collection! I am all about paying it forward because you never know when you will be in need yourself.

First, let me tell you a little bit about FEED USA and how buying items from the FEED USA + Target collection will help others.

FEED USA is a new campaign launched by FEED Projects and FEED Foundation, both founded by Lauren Bush Lauren. FEED USA will improve school lunches across America and educate children on healthy nutrition. To date, FEED (established in 2007) has donated over $6 million and 60 million meals.

How it works: When you buy an item(s) from the FEED USA + Target, 10% of original retail (excluding tax) of store sales from 6/30 - 10/12 will be donated to Feeding America. $1 is equal to 8 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local food banks.

The whole collection is filled with red, white and blue. Which is perfect for the 4th of July but also appealing if you're into the Americana look, like I am! I also feel that they went with the color because the proceeds will be benefiting Feeding America.

Friday Fingers! *I Eat Mainely Lobster*

Friday, June 28, 2013

Happy Friday to all, wherever you are! I have a busy weekend ahead and so I made sure I did my nails! The last few weekends I have been slacking. So sorry.

Let me reveal the color for this week's Friday Fingers!...

My Style: Spring/Summer Bedding!

Monday, June 24, 2013

I can tell July is around the corner because it's getting hot and humid here in Pennsylvania! Fortunately, I have air conditioning in the house. However, it doesn't always keep me as cool as I'd like. My house gets the afternoon sun. The upstairs, with fewer vents than downstairs, has the tendency to get warm.

With that said I got rid of my down comforter and duvet for the warmer months! My Dad would say I just made the excuse that it's hotter upstairs just so I can get something new. Normally, this is true. However, I promise I really needed it Dad!

My Style: Patio/Outdoor Space

Monday, June 17, 2013

Over the weekend, I had some friends over and we spent time on my patio. While my patio is small it was perfect for a party of four! Since it is a small space, it made decorating it a challenge. Plus, I was trying to stay under my budget of $100.

My dear friend and I on my patio!
I was successful in finding great pieces of furniture and stayed under budget! All purchases were made back in March, so prices might be different in store. Everything except for the string lights were purchased at Lowe's.

I have been hoarding makeup to show you! I got some nail polish which I won't show you here because I'll be featuring it on Friday Fingers! At this point you've already seen two out of the four, Sunday Funday and Boom Boom Room. So let's get right down to it!

Friday Fingers! Essie Neon Collection 2013

Friday, June 7, 2013

We made it to another Friday Fingers! I've had a busy week so this Friday feels well deserved. As you all know I work at a school and tonight was graduation. Congrats to all the seniors in the Class of 2013!

Tomorrow I'm getting together with my extended family and that always means good times! We are heading up to our private fishing club for a kids fishing contest for my cousins! Anyway, on to my nail polish.

I happen to know that fish love pink, so I went with the brightest, boldest pink in my collection, boom boom room. Boom boom room is from the new neon collection from essie. I am obsessed with this color! This is the ultimate pink.
