So I went to Target this weekend. Here's the thing with Target and me that you may not know. I'm an addict. There was a time back in 2008 when I would glossy red gates and spend roughly 2 hours walking around its pretty displays and pawing through the clearance bins every. single. weekend. The high was amazing.
It always ended the same, though. I'd completely lose track of time and space and when I finally realized I should leave I had spent $40-$50 on who knows what. Target is a devious temptress. She'd convince me that I needed that $6 shirt because helloooo clearance and I had been waiting to buy movie X for the longest and now it was only $12.99 and how can you walk these aisles and not buy a new book?! I was in deep.
I finally quit cold turkey. I stopped going. I was going to break my habit and show some love to my bank account. As a result, Target and I have been distant friends ever since. I don't visit often because it's just too addicting. Hello, my name is Michael and I'm a member of Target Anonymous.
Recently I had a craving and I fed it. You guys, I forgot how magical Target is. And the dollar spot? Don't get me started. The most adorable little things live in those bins and naturally I need everything. Don't you?
While I was strolling through the home section fantasizing about redecorating and loving the new patterns and colors that are coming out for spring I happened upon this guy.
How gorgeous is this pineapple?! More than that, it's a candle. A pineapple coconut scented candle. Naturally I turned to Twitter for moral support and asked that someone, anyone, talk me out of buying this. The responses were very helpful: "omg you need that" and "I cannot, in good conscience, tell you not to buy that pineapple". That last one sealed the deal. I bought it. Thanks, Meghan! It now lives on my desk being all bright and cheery.
When I'm not trying to keep up with my Target recovery I do nothing but fall down the Etsy rabbit hole. I mean, it's pretty amazing in there. Mostly I spend my time looking at planner stickers. Okay, all of my time. They're just SO pretty! And yes, I realize I basically swapped one addiction for another. Sue me.
Spring is very slowly making its presence known here on the east coast and in honor of that I've decided to do a giveaway! My friend Kiyah was sweet enough to donate some of the goodies in the prize pack!
How adorable is this stuff?! One lucky winner will take it all. Entry is easy, leave a comment telling me which planner you use and why you love it and share the giveaway on Twitter. That's it. Do one or both and you're in it to win it. Winner will be drawn on Saturday and notified via e-mail so make sure you're not a no-reply blogger. If you're no-reply a new winner will be chosen.
