Earlier this month, Target, my beloved bullseye boutique debuted a new collection and it’s kind of a big deal. I mean, who doesn’t love Target?! But this line in particular was a really exciting venture because per usual, it’s affordable, but more importantly, every garment in the collection goes up to a size 26 {versus just some items being plus}. Also, there’s a heavy focus on denim, which is an item most women find difficult to shop for {check out Fitting Room Tips to Find the Best Jeans…after you’re done reading this!}.
Of course it was my civic fashion duty to check out the Universal Thread line in person, try on pieces and report back the absolute pros and a few cons. Here’s another What’s In Store.

What's In My Bag - On the Go Travel Must Haves

Sigh, I was supposed to be on a beach in the Bahamas, but Hurricane Matthew postponed that trip. However, being the anal retentive person I am, my bag was already packed a week ago. You know I’m the queen of the I-don’t-do-checked-bags! 

And since I only do carry-on, that means every item in my bag has to count, especially when it comes to my beauty routine.

Dime Find of the Week: Must Have Shoes from Crocs {Yes, Crocs!}

I can admit when I’m wrong. And I had that moment last week…when I attended a press preview for Crocs.
