. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Mood Boosters and Forever 21 Giveaway

September 19, 2012

Mood Boosters and Forever 21 Giveaway

I had a rough start to the day today, as I spent yet another morning at the doctor's office.
In a successful effort to improve my mood I went to Target.
(big surprise, right?)

I didn't last long in my efforts to hold off, and I bought a bag of candy corn.



AND got myself a skinny vanilla latte at Starbucks.
(The skinny part helps balance out the candy corn, right?)


Mood improved.

And to improve my mood even more, I get to have Kaylin on my blog today.
Her cute style, sweet blog, adorable puppy and giveaway to Forever 21 will improve your mood too!

Hi Gals,

I'm Kaylin and I have a little blog url over here, that I call Stay Blonde Ski Local.  My blogging 'career' if you will had a very impromptu start. My best friend told me she was starting a blog, because it seemed interesting and she'd been reading other peoples blogs for a while (which at the time sounded ridiculous, who has time to read peoples blog and write their own??)  
But looks who's talking now- the SBSL blogger herself, me.  

Anyways I'm writing here today to give you a brief glimpse into my life (this post reveals some embarrassing truths about me, don't be afraid to laugh out loud if you read it).

  I am Jegging LOVER (see proof below- Yes I also have them in red, charcoal, and black), avid runner, leopard obsessed, passionate skier (hence the blog name).
I have an affinity for anything sparkly, blingy, or  bejeweled and am overall goof a gal who recently entered the dreaded mid twenties.  Ugh....early twenties sounds WAY better, plus it gave me a get out of jail free card when I did irresponsible things. Guess things are a changin'.
Zoey, our furry little one, is our (my boyfriend and my) newest obsession, she's adorable...AND growing up way too fast.  She recently discovered her voice bark, which should prove to make our walks and evening TV watching rituals more musical. 

 The two of us girls on the day we bought her home.  Doesn't she look like an angel?? Read more about her here, and see how big she is now here

I've grown to really enjoy blogging, (often sharing random thoughts and trends like these) and think it's a great way to get inspired, stay honest with yourself and others, and discover that you're not the only one who always finds cute stuff at Target. Me personally, I've also discovered a better sense of style, or at least I'd like to think so.  All of you are just so darn cute. 
 Don't you just Love Katie's outfits and awesome tutorials??

So for the finale, if you haven't already heard: Target and F21 basically steal my money right out from under me. In light of that my give away is a F21 gift card.



Good luck!

I'm a firm believer that candy and a Target trip can fix just about anything. Hope you start feeling better!

Is that a VENTI?? Dang. I only splurged on a Tall today.
I told myself no more candy corn until Oct. 1. Then, game on.
I hope the outcome of your appointment was somewhat positive?? :)

I have to keep my eyes down everytime I go into Target for supplies! It hardly works though!

Why did you have to go to the doctors?? I hope everything is ok.

This story is so great to me. I once came out of a movie that was soooo depressing. I could barely even handle myself, so I went to Target to cheer myself up. It worked!!

Good for you buying those treats for yourself! You deserve it :-) And I would say the "skinny" cancels out the candy corn completely ;-)
