My Summertime Essentials with Target #ColorsofInfluence

My Summertime Essentials with Target #ColorsofInfluence

It’s Summer! Yaaay! So now what? We need to get the summer essentials, that’s what! And for me, that means I need to get my summer essentials on a budget. Target is always my first place to start, especially since I have finally discovered this Cartwheel app!

Here are just a few of my summer essentials:

Garnier Anti-Sun Damage Lotion: Every lady needs a great moisturizer. I recently started using this and for the price, it works for me. I also like Olay 7 Effects as well.

Shea Moisture Black Soap: I have been using this soap for probably 3 years now. I buy a bar for my face and a bar for the shower.  It’s such a stable, that it’s an automatic purchase. You can use it on your face, body and even wash your hair with it. I allow my children to use it and the hubby has become accustomed to it as well.

A Summer Maxi Dress: As a woman of a particular age with kids, I like to be cute while comfortable. I have to save the sexy for date night! Maxi dresses are a perfect summer essential because there are so many styles, options, colors and price ranges.

Summer Flats: Once again with three children, heels are saved for date night! Over the past few years, me and a cute pair of flats have become best friends. Fancy flip flops can almost be worn with anything. Almost!

Summer Shades: I saw these glasses on another person on Instagram and wondered were these the trend for 2014? If so, they are cute and even Target has a pair. I think of Sunglasses like I think of my earrings and shoes, a perfect accessory to compliment a cute summer outfit.

The Mighty iPad: I already have one, but I just wanted to add that I use it everyday. I write on it, read from it, take pictures, make video and even do my exercises right from my iPad. For the summer, I plan on using it more for my workouts and reading. I am currently reading One Pound a Day The Five Love Languages of Children.

Target is a really great one stop shop with something for every area of my house and even my life! This is NOT a sponsored post, I just love me some Target! #ColorsofInfluence
