1. Can we talk about Target for a second? You know, the store that you can't go into without spending less than $50?! I finally bit the bullet and got a Target REDcard. It's essentially a debit card (linked to your bank account), but you get 5% back on every purchase at Target (when you use the card) and free shipping on anything purchased online. Based on my last two (err, huge) trips to Target, it's going to be well worth it. In fact, I think it might be prompting me to get more at Target...which is probably a problem. Why yes, you need four of those shirts and some makeup and a back up bottle of shampoo...FIVE PERCENT BACK! I'm working on squashing this little voice!
2. My cousin's girlfriend Emily has started selling jewelry via her site Consider the Wldflwrs. Not only is the jewelry gorgeous, unique, (see above) and affordable, but 35% of the proceeds of every sale is donated to a non-profit ministry.
3. Speaking of Target, in last weekend's shopping spree, I bought this workout tank. It's Lululemon-esque in its design and materials, but a fraction of the price. I love the way it fits and looks on, and now I want one in every color!
4. Too hot to eat real food? Good thing it's never too hot for ice cream! Marianna recently made my Moose Tracks Ice Cream Cake and said, "Made this for my boyfriend's birthday and it was a huge success!" You can always count on success when peanut butter, fudge, and ice cream are involved!
