Good trip to Target.

But then again, when is a trip to Target NOT good? I can always find what I'm looking for, and I'm always happy with my purchases when I leave. My main intent for going was to get a new bathing suit. My other one was getting a little thin in the back, so I needed a new one in the name of modesty! Luckily the only place I have worn it lately is in our friends' pool. Chlorine is SO hard on suits! Anyways, this is the one I got:

We all know bathing suit shopping is nothing short of a nightmare 99% of the time. I didn't really want a halter, but I liked the color and style, so I tried it on anyways. It ACTUALLY looks REALLY GOOD on me! I was thrilled! And not only that, but it COMPLETELY covers my boobs, which is really hard to find. And it's fully lined, not just in front like my other one.

Okay, so my next purchase. I had seen the target commercial for the Ayomi Yoshida gift wrap line. I thought it was cute, but didn't really think much of it. Well, I saw the whole line at my local Target last night and it's so FUN!

Tell me, HOW can you go wrong with hot pink polka dots? This is the best photo I could find, but it doesn't even show anything. There are way cute hat boxes that would be ideal for scrap room (or anywhere) storage. The ribbon is to die for. And there are sets of velvet flocked gift cards, which I am SO getting on my next trip (hello, new embellishments!). I did get one thing...polka dot tape. There's 4 rolls of 20 yards each in the package...for $3.99. It's the size of scotch tape. TOTALLY cute! I can't wait to use it!

Final purchase: Body Spray. I ran out of my normal scent a while back, and have been lazy about getting more, so I've just been buying random body spray when I go to the store. I saw this and thought I'd give it a try:

This stuff smells DIVINE! I am SO ordering it in bulk. I think I've found my new 'signature' scent! It has this kinda sweet, florally, honey smell to it. But there's something else that's hard to describe. It just smells good, and I FEEL like I smell good when wearing it. It doesn't smell like something that comes in a 7-buck bottle of body spray! Yes, this is officially the most times I have said 'smell' in one paragraph.

I did want a couple of those mini metal Dollar Spot lunchboxes that were mentioned on 2Peas, too, but they only had 3 and they were all beat up. I didn't NEED them, anyways. But, in case you can't tell, it was another successful trip to Target!
