Fab Find: Tropical Drink Floatie

In the Dollar Aisle at Target this past weekend I found this fun inflatable drink floatie in a pineapple motif. At just $3 each, these would make a fun addition to a pool party. I also saw them in a pink flamingo shape.

Target Tries "Cart Stoppers"...

Remember Kmart's "Blue Light Specials"? They were surprise moments when a store worker would light up a mobile police light and offer a discount in a specific department of the store, while announcing the discounted special over the store's public address system. Well Target is now trying a tamer version of this sales tactic called "Cart Stoppers". As shown here, I've started to see these signs show up in store, especially on larger items like patio sets. What struck me about this sign, though, is that it isn't very helpful, as it doesn't say what the regular price of the item is, so you can't tell what sort of "deal" you're getting.

Double-Take: Jack Rogers vs. Sam & Libby

It's time for another double-take, where we take one item from Tar-shay and match it up against a lookalike - yet pricier - designer piece. Thanks to The Budget Babe for first spying this dupe. One of these gold boho thong sandals is by Jack Rogers (at Nordstrom) and will set you back $117.95. The other is by Sam & Libby (at Target) and costs just $24.99. Which one is which? The answer appears in the comments section below.

Target's Car Seat Trade-in Event...

This week, all of Target's car seats are on sale. Plus, you can get an extra 20% off your new car seat purchase when you bring in an old car seat in to be recycled. Look for the big recycling bin near the customer service desk at your local Target store.

Fab Find: Gilded Birthday Candles

In the Dollar Aisle at Target the other day I found these lovely gilded birthday candles. Dipped in gold and more than double the length of regular birthday candles, they'd add the perfect touch to your favorite cake. Best of all, they're just $3 for a pack of 12.

Coming Soon to Target: Pacifica Suncare

Pacifica - the cruelty-free skincare & beauty line Target started carrying a few years ago - has expanded the brand’s offerings to include sun protection. Pacifica Suncare is a Target-exclusive assortment that marries UVA and UVB protection with the elevated and potent powers of caffeine and probiotics in its sunscreens, face shades, bronzers and balms.

Each of the Pacifica Suncare products feature all-mineral SPF formulas, including the first mineral SPF 50 spray to hit the market. The products are water -resistant for up to 80 minutes, include no chemical UV absorbers and stay true to Pacifica’s mission of being vegan and cruelty-free. Plus, unlike some mineral sunscreens that leave your skin looking dry and chalky, the Pacifica team concocted a mineral sunscreen formula that not only works but makes your skin look fresh and radiant. Pacifica Suncare will be exclusively available at Target and on Target.com on May 14 for prices ranging from $3.99 - $15.99.

Fab Find: Mari Mi California Collection

The other day on an endcap in the Stationery section at Target I spied a whole collection of Mari Mi merchandise with a "California" theme. It included mugs, wall art, greeting cards, and my favorite of the bunch: this state-shaped cutting board (shown here). At just $14.99 each, this would make a fun hostess or housewarming gift.
