Purging + Organizing my Closet | New Sweaters from Target

This post may contain affiliate links; all opinions are my own.

As part of getting ready for the new year, I like to go through my closet and dresser to see if there are any clothes that I should donate. I look for items that I didn’t wear the entire year, or things that no longer fit, or just things that don’t make me happy. Whatever those items are, we pack them up and donate them. After going through and organizing, I could see what I had and what I needed more clearly.  Continue reading

Dining Room Makeover – Target Furniture

This post may contain affiliate links; all opinions are my own.

I am all about creating the perfect space for me. I only want to surround myself with things that I love, and things that are serving me. I did an entire post on items to get rid of and purge from your life, and overall I am feeling really great about not having “excess” in my life. With that said, we have had a dining room table without chairs for over two years now. We finally found the perfect chairs and made the decision to buy them. I love them so far; and the best part is that they are from Target!

Holiday Travel Essentials | Beauty

Many of you may be traveling for the upcoming holidays. It’s always fun to go somewhere new or see friends & family, but it can be difficult deciding what to pack or just carrying everything you want.

I always try to pack just the “essentials” so my bags aren’t loaded down and I’ll have room in case I get a few souvenirs. You really need to ask yourself what you want; try to only bring products that have multiple uses. For example: with makeup, see if you can find a blush you like that can double as an eyeshadow. Or a dark eyeshadow that you can also use to fill in your brows. With beauty items, it can be a little more tricky. You don’t want to neglect your skin while you are on holiday, but you don’t want to carry your full sized bottles either.

This is where those sample sizes from Sephora or little mini bottles of products come in handy. I always save the samples for traveling because they hardly take up any room and you can just discard them when you are done. If you don’t have the sample sizes of the product you want to bring with you, there are always those mini travel bottles you can buy at the drugstore.

Here’s my travel makeup bag:

This bag is actually a clutch from the Marc Jacobs collaboration with Target last year; it’s a shiny metallic pouch that’s fairly large and fits all you see here ^ very nicely.

Here’s my skincare and toiletries bag:
