Retail Therapy: The Perfect Ending to a Hectic Day

This week has been kind of blah for me. I was home sick from work on Monday and Tuesday due to lady troubles *eye roll*. I was not feeling well at all. I finally went back to work on Wednesday and it was a stressful one. Our inbox was full and the phones were ringing off the hook.

Since my son was at his father’s last night, I took a detour on my way home to my happy place!

What’s that, you ask? TARGET! Duh!


They have an amazing home sale right now. I’m trying to save money so I only bought a few things for very low prices. Check out what I bought and get your Red Card ready because you’ll want to go snag some stuff before it’s all gone!

Metal Marquee Letter Small – Ampersand and “O” – Threshold™

These little cuties are $4.98 each. They were originally $14.99. What a steal! They look adorable on my end tables and the lights are BRIGHT! The batteries are not included so you’ll need to pick up some double A’s. They also each come with two replacement bulbs.

There weren’t many letters left so I was thrilled to see that they had an “O”for my new last name! I love being a newlywed and wear my new name proudly. Anytime I see one, I have to snag it, especially if it’s on sale! 🙂 If you don’t see the letter you need, keep in mind any baby showers or bridal showers you have coming up. These make perfect gifts!

“Never Grow Up Throw Pillow” – 20″x12″ – Pillowfort™


If you’ve read my post, PSA: Don’t Rush to Grow Up, you know I’m no fan of adulting. What really sold me, though, was the price. It was originally $16.99, I got it for a whopping $5.08! It was a no brainer that it had to be mine :).

I’m pretty sure this pillow is meant for a child’s room but, I thought it would look cute in my living room on my couch.



New Adventures Door Mat – 18″x30″ -HOT NOW®


I’m obsessed with arrows so when I walked by this doormat, I had to have it. I saw the red clearance tag but couldn’t quite read the price from a distance. When I bent over to get a closer look, I prayed that it was less than $9.99. (Sometimes I just refuse to pay $10 dollars or more for ANYTHING. I have very strict clearance shopping rules. They keep me from overspending.) It must have been my lucky day because it was only $6.48! In the basket it went! I put it by my front door, inside. I’m sure it’s supposed to go outside but I love it so much and don’t want it to get dirty. I know that’s what it’s for but I just can’t even do it. I love the message on it too. #YOLO!

Red Hot Chili Peppers Californication Graphic Tank – Bravado®


This wasn’t in the home section but it was a must-have! I love three things about this tank; Red Hot Chili Peppers, Californication and the state of California in general! My location on Twitter reads “Dream of Californication,” although, I live in Cleveland, Ohio. It has said that since 2009 when I first created my account. Because of all of these reasons, I broke my clearance shopping rule and dished out $10.48 for the top. I had to!

I can’t wait to wear it. I plan on dressing it up with black liquid leggings and dressing it down with a pair of cut-off shorts!



To top all of those good buys off, I came home to my ipsy bag in the mailbox! Score! This was just the icing on the cake!

The contents:

  • Crown Brush 3 Tone Bronzer
  • FORMULA X Nail Polish in Wingwoman
  • BioRepublic SkinCare Fiber Mask Set in Cucumber Breeze and Pomegranate Crush
  • Liptini Cream Lip Color in Pinktini
  • theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in Matt Kumar (matte cranberry)

I cannot wait to try all of these goodies! I already painted my toes with my new polish last night 🙂 If you don’t have ipsy, sign up here. I highly recommend!

I have to say, yesterday was a good day! *Ice Cube Voice*

Next time you have a bad day, suck it up, wait it out and do some shop therapy. Works every time ❤
