Working Girl

In this day and age no woman carries just one title. The 2017 woman is a working girl 24/7. She has a 9-5, she’s a mom, she’s a student, she owns her own business, she supports others and is involved in her community. She travels to places she’s never been, moves her family across the country, the state, or the world. She has a wide range of experience, a diverse pool of friends and an ever-growing knowledge base because more opportunities than ever are available to her.

Weekend Edit | Target Edition

Who else has a love / hate relationship with Target? Last night I was browsing, killing time before meeting with a client, and I fully spent 1.5 hours combing through the store and I didn’t even make it to athletic or outdoor sections (that should go to show you just how much there was to look at)! Shockingly I walked out only having spent $51.47, which is a feat in and of itself, considering I haven’t been in a Target for months.

Weekend Edit | Target Edition

I was really impressed to see the collab collections they’re currently offering (Bauble Bar, Who What Wear, Oh Joy & Nate Berkus) and upcoming projects (Victoria Beckham & a WINE BAR?!).  A trip to Target has always been a “treat” for me and the 5 years I lived thousands of miles away from a Target I was more than fine with learning to do without it (when one has Paris in their backyard it’s not difficult to forget everything else). After spending all that time away from stores I had been accustomed to frequenting I realized something startling: Target is not necessary! But it embodies so much of what we love about shopping in America: Pretty, convenient and essentially unnecessary, but OH SO FUN!

Things I Love Thursday // Visiting Huntsville

It’s no secret I really love my home town… the people, the weather, the shops and the fact that *most* of my family and close friends still live there — Families come and go but it’s amazing how often they move back to Huntsville, Alabama! After living away from the US for the past 3 years and not knowing where we might move next I would *still* be fine with eventually making it back to Dixie Land. It’s so hard to explain… the sunshine is warmer and the rain is fresher… you’d just have to be here to get it.
