The Best Target Beauty Buys!!


I like many people in the world have a Target obsessions. Bored? Go to Target! Sad? Go to Target? Happy? Go to Target! Target literally makes everything better and because Target is totally stepping up their beauty section this makes it even better! Or worse… for your wallet depending on how you view it but glass half full people it’s a great thing!  I love browsing the beauty section at Tarjayyy and here I am to share my favorite beauty buys from Target, with you!


Kristin Ess Haircare is a must if you’re at Target!!!! A must. The shampoo and conditioner are great. The Beach Wave Spray is good but I like the Dry Texture one better. Both offer non-sticky texture and grit without making your roots feel saturated with powder! It’s preference for me but I like the Dry Texture better, I think it does more. The Blow Dry mist is amazing at stopping frizz and cutting down blow dry time.  It also makes your hair sleeker.

Good Chemistry Fragrances. This is a line of fragrances that recently came to Target. They have perfumes and colognes and they have testers out at Target  so you can smell them!! This one was $24 and it in no way smells like a cheap perfume! This is the scent Queen Bee and its playful and fruity smelling.  I like it but I will say the sprayer part that you push down to get it to spray often gets stuck inside the bottom part.  I mean the perfume is only $24 so it’s fine if you’re patient but just to let you know!

Thayer’s Witch Hazel. This is great to use before makeup or after you wash your face. It’s tones, hydrates and gets the extra gunk off your face. Honestly just a great staple!! Pro Tip: If you’re drier, use a spray toner because cotton will strip your skin of moisture.  Or if you’re just lazy or like me I’m both! This is the lavender scent but its very tame smelling. They also have scentless if you’re sensitive!

Acure Skincare. Acure is awesome and the price point is great. I love their oils, they’re under $10 and they work!


Bliss Spa products. I’m loving the new Bliss products at Target! I recommend the masks and the dewy moisturizer!!! The In the Honey one is super hydrating. The Mighty Marshmallow one feels awesome on your face and makes your skin radiant.  The Ex-glow-sion moisturizer has iridescent shimmer and is so pretty under makeup! It reminds me of the Glam Glow mega illuminating moisturizer! I love this stuff so much and it feels high end and from what I’ve tried it works!! I can’t wait to try more.

Loreal Lash Paradise. I love this mascara. It’s a Too Faced dupe and my favorite mascara at Target. It also keeps my hard to curl lashes curled!!

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer. This is a staple and IMO the best concealer at the drugstore! They recently expanded the shade range too! It’s not perfect but it’s getting better.

There are my favorite Target buys? DO you have any that aren’t here? Please lemme know! 🙂



Last time we talked I was about to leave for college and now I write back to you, a month into college! It’s been sooooooo crazy and so not what I expected!  I play volleyball and got a concussion on day 3 of being here.  If you don’t know concussions, lemme tell ya, I could write the bible on them.  Its having a major headache 24/7, feeling nauseous every time you eat or something smells, being sensitive to light and noise, being forgetful, feeling tired, slow, confused…. and you’re not allowed to use the computer/phone, let alone work out.  So its very easy to feel isolated.  Everyone continues with their life and you’re resting all the time in your room with the lights off.  All of this on top of moving across the country and adjusting to college. Doing laundry would be the highlight of my day because I would get out of the dorm and get to see new people. Hahahahahah. It’s hard because on the outside, you look pretty normal, but on the inside its madness and you don’t feel like yourself. I’ve felt like a bat locked in a cave for the past month. I’ve already missed 2 weeks of school so I have aloooooot of catch up to do. But I’m pretty good with that stuff. It’s hard watching everyone go out, have fun, make new friends and even go to class when you’re stuck in your shitty dorm bed with a headache.  But I’m slowly getting back into things and am SOOOO happy because I was going stir crazy!  I feel like I’ve made it!  I could honestly write a book. Hahahahah. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!  This first month was totally not what I expected but I got a lot left to make amazing and its coming soon, I feel IT! 🙂

So these pictures, throwing it back to when I arrived at the airport… Before the madness.  REALLY.  (read below too) TO fill you in, I packed a ton of stuff.  Don’t let these two suitcases fool you.  Theres lots of boxes.  But the shoes!!! The shoes!!!! Two 50 pound suitcases worth of shoes. THATS 100 POUNDS.

When you arrive at the new city you’re gonna be living in!  You’re on a high.  YOU’RE IN BOSTON!  And theres hellllla good GEOTAGS. 

Now you get to go get the rental car!  Yay you don’t have to double fist the 50 pound suitcases anymore.   May I mention you’re a tiny bit sweaty.  But no big deal, you’re excited. 

The damn rental car place is halfway across Logan airport and yes, you, get to lug your two 50 pound suitcases filled with every pair of boots you own through the airport.  Wtf.  Along with your 25 lb purse and your 30 lb carryon.  Smile is gone. You’re huffing and puffing. Hungry.  REALLY sweaty.  Your forehead is shiny.  Your arms hate you.  You’re feeling BLISTERS forming. You don’t fit on the escalator. You’ve almost dropped the handle a few times and you hate the cobble stone ground.  Maybe taken out a few people. You’re also wondering what the hell is wrong with you. 
The story ends when you get to lug the same two suitcases up 4 flights of stairs to get to the dorm.
