Hey everyone! Am I the only one that hopes January will go really fast? The winter months just kill me. I like sunshine, patios, and warm temps! One of the first things I do when seasons change is check out the Target Dollar Spot. I’m such a big fan of this little section. I find so many delightful things for décor around our house. Right now, Valentine’s Day and winter items are hot in the Dollar Spot! I’ll share some of my favorites below!
Galentine’s Day Dollar Spot Items
HOW CUTE ARE THESE GALENTINE’S DAY ITEMS?! I’m proud that I didn’t buy all of them but I’m still tempted. And I live across the street from a Super Target. It’s like a dream and a nightmare all at the same time. These are just such cute little things for a girl’s night get together. I really need that glitter sign!
Winter Dollar Spot Items
THE HOT COCOA STUFF! Oh my goodness. Once again, I was tempted but only bought the cute mugs. I might go back for more though. Some of these items make really good stocking stuffers for next Christmas too!
Ok I also bought the lavender eye pillow and I really like it! It smells amazing and doesn’t fall of my head. So winning there. They have a ton of stuff for new year organization and resolutions. I definitely need to get a pair of those workout gloves! Just sayin.
Anyway, I’ll share more on my Instagram stories as they roll out other items. Happy winter everyone!
Since I’m definitely not the only one that made a New Year’s Resolution to eat healthier and exercise, I thought now is the perfect time to talk about all that fun stuff. Is there anything harder than breaking bad habits? I stepped on the scale about a week ago and let me tell you, nothing motivates you like seeing the numbers just keep rising before your eyes. Absolutely terrifying. It doesn’t matter how thin or big I look to other people, I’m my own worst critic and I want to feel my best! The thing that motivates me to work out is the thrill of getting a toned body and buying new work out clothes!
Being that I’m a self-proclaimed style blogger, I feel like I have to look cute no matter what I do, and that includes hitting the gym. I’ll never be able to walk into the gym and feel empowered by wearing old gym shorts and a baggy t-shirt. It just isn’t happening because let’s be honest, I’m totally checking myself out in the mirror while I work out. And I know I’m not the only one who does this. I’m studying my form, how my gym style compares to everyone else’s, and whether or not my legs look big in the leggings I’m wearing.
A few of my favorite places to get workout clothes are from Target and Old Navy. Of course I love Lulu Lemon and the cute uppity-ness going on with their clothing, but it just isn’t affordable right now. I’m always on the hunt for similar styles for half the price. Read on for a few of my finds below!
My “outfit of the day” is probably my favorite outfit to exercise in! Dallas has lots of great places to run but my favorite place is the treadmill inside and away from the cold! Let me know how your resolutions are going and share any weight loss tips with me in a comment below!
Happy New Year lovelies! I hope you got to bring in 2017 with style and had a nice night on the town! David and I met up with some friends of ours at one of our favorite hang outs in Dallas. We came home before midnight though because Uber surge pricing gets expensive… and David bought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate the New Year!
Right after the holidays are over and the madness dies down, I love to go out to my favorite stores and browse their clearance sections and find little treasures. I also love to check out Target’s Dollar Spot for new seasonal items! With Valentine’s Day coming up, I figured they’d have some pretty adorable things. Target outdid themselves this year though! The dollar section kept me occupied for a good 20 minutes yesterday afternoon. Everything I found was under $5 and totally worth the buy!
Target Dollar Spot Under $5 Finds!
Ok. Seriously. How cute are these scarves? I love the watercolor flowers on the one and the gold polka dots on the other. Better yet, they’re each $3!
I love adorable door hangers and nice table runners to class up the dining room. Both of these are between $3-5!
To be honest, I’m not entirely sure of what these are supposed to be. I thought just regular glasses for drinking but I kind of like them for storing make up brushes or small potted flowers. These pretty glasses are $3 each!
Do I have an obsession with coffee mugs and travel mugs? Yes, I do! When I saw this one I got really excited because I love floral prints! You can find this in the Target dollar spot for under $5.
So for whatever reason, I love pretty or fun dish towels and of course the Valentine’s selection at Target didn’t disappoint. I also love signs that say something motivational like these ones do. Signs and dish towels are each $3!
Last but not least, another great dollar section find were these coffee mugs! I love the cute little sayings on them and you can’t beat the price- $4.99!
Get shopping! This stuff runs out fast! Leave me a comment with any fun dollar spot finds or just to say hi! Thanks!
Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you’ve recovered from your crazy Thanksgiving festivities and are on the mend. My Thanksgiving was quite busy in San Antonio; David and I spent it with his family and friends. Frankly, I’m still stuffed from all of the food! I think I had about five plates of turkey and stuffing by the end of the day. No regrets! This season is so wonderful for yummy treats but so terrible for my waistline.
Since Christmas is now in full swing, I went and browsed the Target dollar section to see what holiday goodies I could find and I wasn’t disappointed! They had cute Christmas salt and pepper shakers, wrapping paper, snow globe place cards, hats and mittens, and plenty of glittery items! I bought Christmas themed dish towels (with Christmas trees on them, of course) and this adorable pink Christmas tree I wanted to share with you guys!
You’ll never guess how much it cost! It was $3! You don’t even know how excited I am about something so small and simple. The ornaments were also $3 for the whole box. The Target dollar spot is my favorite place to find fun little decorative items like this for cheap. I think we can all relate to how hard it is to go into the store just needing one thing and not come out with an additional $50 worth of stuff. The struggle is real!
Where will I be putting my new pink tree? On my desk at work of course! I like to add a little merriment wherever I go. Hopefully no one in the office will mind all of the glitter that follows! Anyway, tell me about your recent Target dollar section finds in the comments! I love to see what other Targets have in their dollar spots!
Good morning friends! I’m so glad it’s finally Thursday. Tomorrow I get to go home for the first time in 7 months to see my family! I’m so excited to get a home cooked meal and cuddle my sweet little kitty! You know that saying “home is where your mom is?” Well, it’s the truth. Nothing beats walking in the front door and being surrounded by love.
In other news, how pretty is the dress I’m wearing?! Tulip Boutique in Kansas City sent me the dress as part of their monthly ‘Tulip Twist’ contest (which should be on their Facebook page sometime today if you don’t mind casting a vote!) The dress is really easy to slip on and looks really chic with the fun asymmetric hem. I love that it’s appropriate for the office and even for a night out!
Let’s also talk about my hat. It was a steal at J. Crew for $9 on clearance (link here)! I went to one of their factory outlets and saw it sitting there in all it’s marked down glory. I have a black sunhat but it just absorbs the heat and sunlight so this neutral one is perfect for the Dallas heat! The hat is really structured and well-made, which I certainly appreciate.
Moving on to other accessories, my necklace was also a great find at New York & Co. for $4 on clearance as well! I’ve gotten so many compliments on it and it looks good with so many different outfits. The nautical knot detail in the center gives it that extra something an otherwise boring gold necklace needs. Also, my heels are from the Target Merona collection last year! I can’t say they’re the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn because let’s be honest, Target shoes aren’t that well-made. However, they look really cute if you’re only going to be sitting at your desk all day. Walking around might really bother your feet!
Let me know if you like the look!
