On Target

Hellooo! I just want to say thank you so much for the kind words about the video I shared yesterday.Β I think sharing video is so much more personal because I can’t select my best angles (LOL) and you can see all of my weird mannerisms!

I have another video to share today with a couple of products I just picked up this weekend at Target.

(This post is NOT sponsored. I bought everything with my own money.)

Since Mondays will be a rest day for me going forward for the next couple of months, I am planning to use Tuesdays as a day to share products that I’m really liking. Part of this is because this is the Summer of New Stuff for me. I tend to always buy the same things over and over and this year I want to branch out. Another reason I want to do these is because product reviews are easy to do on video and I really want to get better at video stuff.

Here’s the video:

I’ll also review some of the products down below – including one thing that’s not in the video! This one is mostly for the ladies :).

FINALLY a New Nail Polish Color!

You know that I’m a huge fan of Pink Blink by Sally Hansen and have been wearing it for ages. This weekend I finally picked up a new color: Lively Lilac!

I know this is going to sound familiar but I LOVE IT! I just know I’m going to be wearing this one for… forever!

AND a New Lipstick!

While I was at CVS the other day I spotted a rack of Selma Hayak beauty products and grabbed a lipstick in the color My Favorite.

I can see why Selma calls it her favorite because it’s my favorite right now too! The color is what I would call “my lip color but better.”

The lipstick goes on super smooth and creamy. It feels extremely hydrating and looks lovely. However, it comes off really quickly and easily. As soon as you take a sip of a drink… poof, it’s gone and you have to reapply. I don’t really mind it too much, but I know long-lasting color is important to a lot of people.

I’m not sure if you can really tell the color from this picture. I tried to get good lighting in several different spots but had a hard time.

You can build the color up so that it’s dark(er) like I’m wearing it or you can leave it light and it’ll look like a natural lip color.

This Body Butter is AMAZING

Okay, in the video I embedded above I go on and on about this Boots coconut body butter. It is simply the BEST body butter I have ever used.

Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 10.07.35 PM

It’s thick but not greasy at all and the light beach-y scent lasts so so so long! I put a little bit on my arms before I went for a run and by the time I got done I could still smell it on me! That’s some serious staying power!

Flowy New Top!

I’m going to be on set to film a commercial this Thursday for work and I wanted something lightweightΒ and flowy to wear since we’ll be on set for about 12 hours.

Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 10.07.57 PM

I think this little top will do the job! It’s very lightweight even though it looks like denim and it hangs loose and flowy.

This is going to be my very first time on set for the filming of a commercial and I am VERY excited!

I started my career at Comcast and often got to be on set for the filming of local shows which sounds cool but was really kind of boring. This commercial is going to be the real deal though so I think being on set will be super fun!

Can’t wait! πŸ™‚

    I have a few shirts like that and they are a staple in my summer wardrobe. Living in Mississippi, the humidity and heat can be brutal so lightweight clothing is a must. Being on set for a commercial sounds like fun πŸ™‚

    • July 15, 2015 / 7:41 am

      Ohhh yes, I bet you have worse humidity than we have here! Too bad it’s not appropriate to just wear our bathing suits everywhere during the summer when it’s this hot! πŸ˜‰

    Your makeup is so pretty in your video πŸ™‚

    So I moved out to the middle of nowhere and there is no Target here. I feel so lost, haha. There is a Walmart but it’s just not the same. Do you ever watch Wayne Goss’ Youtube channel? He has a video about one of the Boots mascaras being the best ever.

    • July 14, 2015 / 11:54 pm

      No Target?! So crazy!!

      I have never heard of Wayne Goss, but I am going to check him out right now!

    I really don’t need anymore nail polish but you have convinced me to go pick up some Sally Hansen!

  4. July 14, 2015 / 8:07 am

    I got through the whole video today πŸ™‚ Yesterday, I kept getting interrupted while trying to watch your video, geesh, people expect me to work lol Think I will go watch now.
    Your nails look great. My polish always chips a day in, so I stopped polishing my nails years ago. I do love polish on my toes though. How often do your do your nails?
    The dolphin tank is super cute πŸ™‚
    Your hair looks beautiful. I recently tried Neutrogena Shampoo and conditioner and i love it. Since i wash my hair twice a day sometimes because of sweaty runs, it feels super creamy and I need that.

    • July 14, 2015 / 11:56 pm

      Thanks so much for watching my videos! I really appreciate it πŸ™‚

      I polish my nails every 3-4 days usually. They chip really fast so I have to stay on top of them. There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of a work meeting, looking down and seeing really chipped nails. So embarrassing!

      Thanks for the tip on the Nutrogena shampoo. I often shampoo twice a day as well, so I will need to check that out!

    I love that new nail color and I also love body butter!! I usually get the Shea Butter from Bath and Body Works, but I should check out the one you just reviewed. The dolphin tank would be super cute to have…if it said buffalo bills:) – sorry…I had too!!

    • July 14, 2015 / 11:57 pm

      I love the body butters from Batch and Body Works too, but this Boots one is really amazing. I can’t believe how long the scent lasts!

  6. July 14, 2015 / 4:21 pm

    Hey, I have that same nail color–I only paint my toes. I haven’t gone shopping in a while, so no new favs here. THat is probably a good thing!

    • July 15, 2015 / 7:35 am

      It’s such a great spring/summer color! I’m still wearing Essie Fashion Playground on my toes … I think I’ve been wearing it since January! haha

  7. July 14, 2015 / 4:25 pm

    Good ol’ Target! The quality of their clothes isn’t always great, but it’s so easy to shop there that sometimes I’m willing to forgo one thing for the other. But then there are those times when you do find something that lasts and years later you can surprise people by saying “I got this at Target!”

    • July 15, 2015 / 7:36 am

      Agreed! Target has some definite junk clothes (although I have a ton of their running tops and they’ve held up), but this top feels nice. Plus, at only $20 if it falls apart after a couple of washes, it’s not a big deal! πŸ™‚

  8. July 14, 2015 / 8:46 pm

    Christina, I absolutely loved your video! I felt like we were hanging out πŸ™‚ I do the exact same thing with nail polish. My favorite right now is “bubbly” it’s a Revlon color and coincidentally it’s a light shade of pink LOL. I also like Sally Hansen’s barracuda which is a blue color. I’m dying to find the body butter but I highly doubt I can find that here in Canada. I am definitely going to buy that eyeliner. I actually like the sparkles in my eyeliner!

    • July 14, 2015 / 8:49 pm

      I am so super sorry, I was using my microphone and it spelled your name wrong!

      • July 15, 2015 / 7:37 am

        No worries! I’ve been called Cristina/Christina/Kristen/Kristin my whole life so I am totally used to all variations! πŸ™‚

        The eyeliner is really pretty. I’m now remembering that the mac eyeliner I used had some sparkles in it as well!

  9. July 14, 2015 / 11:14 pm

    I love those Insta Dri nail polishes too! I have a ton of colors πŸ™‚

    • July 15, 2015 / 7:39 am

      A couple of years ago I think I had almost every single color but then I stopped painting my nails and threw them all out!!! What was I thinking?!

  10. July 15, 2015 / 7:35 am

    It is really hard to leave Target without something you didn’t originally go in for. I really like the denim shirt you got. I think it will pretty much look good with any color pant- even a dark blue denim pant paired with the light denim top could look good!

    • July 15, 2015 / 7:38 am

      You are so right … except I cannot pull off denim on denim. I think other people pull it off really well but I look like I’m trying to be some weird Denim Girl from the 90s haha πŸ™‚
