Treat Yourself

This post is sponsored by Target, but all opinions are my own. cp tI can’t believe November is coming to an end and the holiday season is already here, filling our hearts and minds with thoughts of gifting and endless holiday shopping. If you tend to have a scatterbrain like myself, you know it is important to keep yourself organized among the holiday everythings.

My personal defense against my scatterbrain is old-fashioned lists. Yes, I know it’s 2015. And yes, I still use paper and pen. In fact, I have had an ongoing list for each gift-giving occasion on my calendar this holiday season. I am making my list and checking it twice to ensure everyone is accounted for this year—and let’s just say it has turned into somewhat of a mega-list. From secret Santa to Chinese gift exchanges to under-the-tree gift giving, this girl is going to be busy fulfilling her long, old-fashioned list of holiday shopping! What kind of gift-giving traditions do you have in your circle of family and friends?

Amid the craziness of never-ending gifts to buy to fulfill your personal traditions, remember to take some time for yourself this holiday season. Whether you prefer a spa day or a retail-therapy session, put an extra pep in your step with a little self-love before knocking out your long list of holiday to-dos.

I took my own advice and did a little retail-therapy session of my own. Thanks to Target’s Wonderlist (like I said, I love a good list), I left the store with a shopping cart full of goodies pictured in these photos. From eye-catching Essie nail polish to a versatile winter white vest to the ultimate black clutch on a chain for any holiday occasion, is it obvious that I was walking around Target with the silent mantra of “treat yourself”? So what if the minute I came home from my Target retail-therapy session I painted my toes gold with this luxe effects Essie polish? Sometimes it makes your holiday shopping a little easier when you take the time to have some fun, paint your toes, and treat yourself.

Luckily, Target created the Wonderlist this holiday season, which makes it all too easy to leave the store with a shopping cart’s worth of treats for yourself and all of your loved ones. cp t good 1cp t 1cp t 5Image-1cp t good 2VSCO Cam-1cp tGo to and search “Wonderlist” to see all the ways you can treat yourself and your loved ones with gifts from Target this holiday season!

14 Days of Target Denim

We have been living in Target Denim for the past two weeks trying out their new styles that just launched in stores. As long time lovers of all things denim, receiving a package of jeans for free addressed to The Crystal Press made our July. We snapped a diary of pictures to showcase and review each of our favorite styles for you guys. Our package was chock-full of fashionable styles that ranged from boyfriend to high-waisted to skinny to acid washed to flannel lined and beyond! In case you haven’t noticed, the two of our body types are complete opposites and we have different preferences when it comes to denim brands (aka legs vs no legs.) It was a relief to find that Target is a place we can do our denim shopping together!

Target Collage 11caths denim reviewOut of all the new Target denim styles, I found myself really gravitating towards the boyfriend jeans (pictured above & online here), the high-waisted flare light wash denim, and my all-time favorite jeans: the high-waisted skinny (pictured below.) These jeans made my go-go-gadget-long-legs come to life and I am over the moon about it aka wearing them right now. As far as I am concerned, this pair of denim might as well be a miracle worker. I am the girl that rocks jeans outside the house, but the minute I get back into the comfort of my home, I swap said denim for a pair of leggings. With this high-waisted skinny pair, I found myself….wait for it… keeping them on for the whole day without a care in the world! If you happen to suffer from short leg syndrome, pop over to Target and try on these puppies.

If you’re like me, you went through that stage in college where you ONLY WORE SKINNY JEANS. Well, at 27, these flannel lined boyfriend jeans were welcomed into my wardrobe with open arms, as were the regular boyfriend jeans. While I do love the occasional acid wash pair of skinnies (as seen above), when I’m trying on denim or surfing the world wide web, I am usually looking for that pair of jeans that still feels great even after you eat a 4 course meal.  Target definitely pulled out all of the stops when it comes to making you feel confident in choosing the right pair to fit your personal style and body type.

We know you have those jeans in your closet that make you feel like you are dressed in somewhat of a sausage casing, so at this affordable price – why not trade those oh-so-tight jeans in for a brand new style or two? If you like that idea, stop by your local Target starting July 26th to try on your personal favorites to receive $10 off (we recommend you go down a size!) You can also shop online, but seriously –  go try on some jeans & put that $10 dollars where it belongs. In your savings account (for that bottle of Veuve Rose.)
