Target Haul- New Hartford, NY

One of the first places I stop the minute I'm in the States is Target! It's one of my favorite places and Canada will finally be getting a few starting in 2013 (ugh to waiting so long). I got a few things there, so I thought I would share some of the ones that are at least a little relevant to this blog.

I grabbed up a mini You Curl, because I usually use my straightener to curl my hair and I don't like to have a lot of styling tools crowding my bathroom counter. This miniature one looked perfect since it would fit in my cabinet without taking too much room. And this was under $20. Thumbs up! Even better that it came in pink... ;)

None of these were over $20. I spotted the last Boy Meets World Season 1 DVD on the shelf and it was only $15. I had to have it. Feeny! Please tell me I'm not the only one who still loves to watch that show. Haha!

I love almost every "Keep Calm and..." quote. I have a matching notebook with this quote that I keep my blog lists in and I knew this would fit in perfectly at my makeup station. I'm still working on dressing up my area and getting everything organized, but as soon as I get it right I'll do a video on it.

I found these little guys in the dollar zone. They offered other patterns. They fit blushes nicely, so I put a few of my loose ones in them and tucked them into my shelves. It brightens up the shelf and organizes at the same time. Win!

I really had no interest in trying The Falsies, but it was on sale and I figured I'd bite the bullet. I've only tried it once so far, but I do not feel that it is worth of holy grail status. It did not do much for my lashes and feels like it would be easy to clump. I'll give it a chance. The Sonia Kashuk brush is fantastic! It's soft but dense, so my foundation or cream products don't get lost in the bristles. And the handle is a really cool shape!

Yay for Target! Thats exciting that they're expanding to Canada! I'm American but one of my dreams is to move to Vancouver, so now I want to go even more knowing that I wont have to leave Target behind =P

I have been to that Target many times! It's the one I go to when we're at our place in the Adirondacks...sounds like you got some good stuff!

I bought those boxes from the dollar section last week! They're perfect for stashing my earrings and bracelets.

You'll like the SK foundation brush, I love mine

@Anna Elizabeth- As an American living in Canada, it has been torture living without Target! :P Luckily, we have mostly the same stores and restaurant chains here. I have a list of places that I like that we don't have here that I try to visit whenever I'm near them in the States.

@Shannon- I didn't realize I was so close to the area that you're familiar with! I stayed in New Hartford and went to a lacrosse game in Verona. It was a very nice area!

@WendyE- I am loving them. I'm kicking myself for only buying two! The brush is perfection. :)

Great haul!!! I love Boy Meets World & Chuck!

I've been dying for the SK brush, but I can't let myself buy it for some reason! lol. I just feel like I own way too many brushes.

Wendy Banner said...

@Linh- Yay! So happy someone else likes Chuck. :) It's such a hilarious show. The whole cast makes it perfect. I really hope it lasts a while longer!

I have a lot of brushes, but none of them are like this one. It buffs in creams and liquids nicely. The closest I have is a brush from the Costco Christmas brush set from two years ago.
