#TOMSforTarget Haul & The Best Sweater Ever!

Hi My Loves!!!

As most of you know I have an obsession with Target. My local store is always clean, peaceful to shop in and always has new fabulous collections for the home and amazing things on clearance. So when I found out about the #TOMSforTarget collection I was so excited for it to launch. I did do a blog post on it already showing you the items I was eyeing so check that out HERE
If you are not familiar with the collection here is more information about the collaboration:

Target is partnering with TOMS, one of the top socially conscious brands, by launching a limited time offer gift collection available in stores on November 16th, 2014.  Like TOMS “one-for-one” model, with each gift purchased by Target shoppers, a gift will be made to a person in need.  
Donations will include one of the following:  one blanket via American Red Cross, one week of meals via Feeding America, or one pair of shoes via TOMS.  Feel the love of giving back this season.  One-for-One.  For All.

Online was sold out of almost everything I wanted so I quickly went to my local Target to see what they had. Low and behold….. they had the home items I wanted and a couple of clothing pieces as well. Unfortunately my Target didn't have the shoes for the kids and the shirts were not in the right sizes for my little ones but I did end up picking up a couple of blankets, a shirt for Jay, a candle and a cozy sweater. 

I'm going to show you what I picked up and what it looks like in real life ;) 

This is a super soft, thinner blanket with touches of light grey with a hint of blue and cream. Very nice quality.

Phoenix was loving this one haha. He said it was so soft. He couldn't stop laying on it haha!

This candle was so perfect for my new bedroom decor, it's like they made it especially for me :) The candle is copper gold with TOMS written on it and it comes in a lovely wooden (sturdy) box.

I also picked up this sweater. It has little gold sparkles in it which are so pretty in the light! It's soft and fits nicely. Loose over the tummy area with as lit up the side.

My model, Vanna holding it up for me. This is his, "I feel awkward and don't know what to do with this sweater" face.

Last thing I picked up was for Jay. He said this shirt is soft and comfortable and he wants more. WIN!

Can you tell he hates posing for pictures haha?? He was so fidgety :)

So that's everything I found at my local store that tickled my fancy. Hope you like everything I picked up.

I was also fortunate enough to be gifted an amazing sweater from #TOMSforTarget that literally has already brought us so many laughs. This together sweater is supposed to bring people closer together this season and it does. It's such a fun idea and I am so grateful that we got one because it was the best addition to our family Christmas pictures this year. I can't wait for you guys to see our pictures! We should be getting them next week. I'll do a separate blog post showing them all. 
Anyway, more about the sweater. Now I don't think you can purchase the sweater, which is a bummer because it's the most awesome gift ever, so I do apologize. But I wanted to share how cute it came packaged and how festive and fun this sweater is.

Gotta love Moo and her bear creeping in the background haha! They should make one for dogs and their partners :)

The kids had so much fun with this sweater. They were cracking up laughing and running around the house in it with grins from ear to ear. Best Christmas sweater ever :)

So there is everything that I got from the collection. I might go back and check out to see if they got anything else in. We didn't have that much at our store. I'd love to try and find the poncho!

 Don't forget to sign up for your Target Red Card if you haven't already so you can save your 5% off all purchases and free shipping online.  I highly recommend getting one! I saved $7 on my purchase of all of these items by using mine :) I do think they are doing free shipping with this collection right now though, whether you have the red card or not.

 Will you be purchasing any of these for Christmas gifts or for yourself? Or have you picked anything up? A lot of the items are sold out online and were very limited in my store, so be sure to head on over very quickly if you are wanting any of these! 
Don't forget to go a take a peek at the collection: #TOMSforTarget

Thanks so much for reading! Hope you all have a great weakend ;)


Toms For Target: One-for-One. For All. Starting November 16th, for every Target+Toms limited edition gift you buy, we're (Target) giving shoes, a blanket or meals to those in need. #TomsForTarget
