Happy Valentine's Day

pink-peony-bouquetHappy Valentine's Day, my loves! Here are a few sweet links to carry you into the weekend. I hope you spend it with the person (or people) you love!

Check out Google's logo today, it's so sweet to hear others' stories. If you don't have a Valentine, you can borrow one of mine (sorry J :)) Chuck Close gets intimate with some of the biggest names in Hollywood (and the results are beautiful). Test your skills with the Great Language Game (I got a 700! I'm more cultured than I thought ;)) This crow blew my mind. And also now my fear of birds feels justified. What company slogans would be if they were honest. These actual best friends forever are adorable! Amazing perfectly timed photos. Also, celebrities as Disney princes and princesses. These new stock photos of women are gorgeous and inspiring.

Retail Therapy

So after a particularly busy and stressful week (and it was only Thursday!) I decided a lunchtime-vacay was necessary. I needed to escape and clear my head, so I went to the absolute best place for that: Target. I love to grab a soda and soft pretzel from the cafe and wander around the store, and I almost never leave empty handed. Yesterday was no exception! I couldn't believe my luck when I turned the corner and found TWO AISLES full of clearanced homegoods. I'm pretty sure I audibly squealed with joy. There were some great finds, all at prices that made my jaw drop.

Here's what I had in my Target haul:

Nate Berkus port mirror (no longer sold online) | Threshold frame | Perfect Night soy-blend candle (similar shown) | Nate Berkus crosshatch lamp | Threshold embroidered pillow

Next time I go I definitely need to check out their fall clothing lines! My go-to fashionista (Lexi of Basically Bubbly) loves to get lost in Target as much as I do and found some awesome pieces for fall.

PS- if you want a really great price, go in person to check out the Target stores in your local area. Clearance prices online are never as low as in the store. Good luck and happy hunting!
