The thing about Target is that you walk in with the intention of buying something and then walk out with four other things you didn't plan on buying. (I feel like I'm ripping this post off of my friend Jeff who recently posted about a similar thing here. Copycatting is the best form of flattery, right? At least that's why my mom always told me...) Anyway, tonight I went into Target without any necessary purchases which is extra dangerous. I resisted a few purchases like: three different pairs of flats that I thought I needed, a shade of OPI nail polish that I also thought I needed but likely already own, and a copy of the most recent InStyle which I will probably be receiving in the mail soon because my awesome cousin Anthony gave me a subscription for Christmas. While I was proud of myself for turning all of those things down, I did leave with quite a few guilty pleasure purchases. Which is ultimately why I love and hate Target. It surprises me with lovely things that I just have to have but it also surprises my bank account with yet another Target purchase.
Here's what I bought tonight:
1. A mustard cardigan (I found one! Which is crucial for this so I'm psyched!)
2. Two fashion magazines (but I put back the third, so props to me, right?)
3. A candle that happens to be in a cute tin that matches my room perfectly AND it smells really good...
4. A pack of multi-colored Sharpie pens
How I love Target...
