Second Chances

First of all, to ease your mind, yes, yes I did figure out my keyboard conundrum. All is well.

Now, to the point: I’m in phone clean out mode (I had over 1,000 pictures in my photo stream), so here are some outfits that never made it to the blog for one reason or another:






Hope you’ve had a bearable Monday!


Gift of the Magi

I’ve been really wanting a keyboard for my iPad to make blogging easier. I bought a cheaper, non-Apple keyboard at Target, but I couldn’t get it to “pair correctly.” After some research, I discovered that with the newer iPads, you can really only use one specific keyboard: the expensive wireless Apple keyboard, of course. So, I bought one today.

Guess what?

Couldn’t get it to connect! Of course. Finally, it randomly connected. Hooray!

But then.

Then…I started having wireless issues. My iPad, which has never had trouble connecting to wireless, suddenly couldn’t do it. So now I can type on my new keyboard but cannot connect to the internet. Or I can connect to the internet but cannot type on my new keyboard. Am I missing something? Am I not allowed to have wifi and bluetooth connections at the same time? If not, then what is the point of it all?

I mean, really.

Monday again?



Happy Monday

Target Haul, Y’all!

My Target addiction is real, and sometimes it’s rampant. I’ve cut back lately due to (an attempt at) budgeting, so it’s been awhile since I’ve come home with a haul. That changed yesterday, and obviously the point of the interwebs is to share things that no one gives a crap about, right?


I had just about made it to the check out lanes when I passed the candle aisle…of course my “new fall scents” radar went off. Since I’m dying for fall, and it still feels like summer, I can light these babies in my home, close my eyes, and imagine I’m carving a pumpkin while riding around on a hay ride. Actually, that sounds sort of dangerous….knives on hayrides. Settle down.


I’ve just finished week one of my second round of P90X (the first round being over 2 years ago…who’s counting?). I decided rather than do laundry, I’d just buy myself some new sports bras. Adulthood? What’s that?


Speaking of laundry, I can NEVER find socks. Like, ever. I rarely do loads of whites, so I figured I’d be more likely to wash my socks (and therefore be able to actually use them) if I could throw them in with my dark clothes. Additionally, I still refuse to wear comfortable shoes to work (style over comfort always wins with me), so I’m trying out a new pair of insoles. I also apparently just turned 70.


Another impulse purchase. Did I need more dish towels? Not at all. Do I love puns? Absolutely. These aren’t even very good towels, but at least it makes me laugh.


I honesty can’t even remember why I bought the hair clips…I just remember doing my hair once and lamenting that I didn’t have any. Also, please note that yes, yes I do, have to purchase the lightest shade of powder. Shut up.


Lastly, a little preview of some clothes I bought. I went in specifically for the black and white striped piece and ended up grabbing the other two. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve already seen two of the three. Lucky duck.

Now I would like to share with you an amazing pair of leggings that I am regretting not having purchased.


What was your latest Target purchase? Do you have any of the items above?
