It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for since you were just a little girl, when you dressed up in your mother’s pearls and high heels, pondering what your life will be like as a grown up; what your life will be like when you finally meet the Man of your Dreams! It’s your engagement! While you surely may be a fan of beautiful jewellery, the options for an engagement ring are endless these days, and you just can’t help but wonder which one your mate will choose…

 

Luckily for you, there may be some clues which lie beneath – Just take a look at your (future) husbands personality!

 

Traditional

 

Not many are willing to fault the idea of tradition, after all, it has worked all of these years for a reason, right? Your mate is the type who definitely follows this wavelength, and with the ideals of having a perfect marriage (to you), with the eventual family, the pets, a beautiful home just outside of the city, accompanied by a perfect garden, he really wants it all – in traditional fashion! If this sounds like your guy, he surely won’t ignore the cornerstone of marriage tradition – the classic diamond engagement ring! Now, all you have to say, is ‘I do’!

 

Boastful

 

Fast car, respected career, all of the latest gadgets, the nice watch; your guy has got it all, and he is definitely not afraid to show it off! If your husband-to-be is the type who wants to ‘flaunt it’ (and for people to notice, without doubt), then you can take a few guesses as to what your ring will emulate: big and beautiful, with the perfect array of sparkle! There’s no way he’s going to let you wear just any ring, so perhaps you can expect a brilliantly custom-designed replica of one of the many famous celebrity engagement rings, proving there’s certainly no chance in anyone outshining his bride (you!).

 

Creative

 

Being anything but traditional, your guy has a real talent for creativity, seeing all things in a different light which many people could easily ignore. To be poetic, he’s a real diamond in the rough, and chances are, so are you, as he is likely attracted to those who stand out from the crowd, with their own unique qualities and attributes. If this sounds like your guy, then he is most certainly the creative type, and with this, anything goes! Most logically, he will choose something far from the norm, like a bespoke engagement ring with a possible gemstone, adorning diamonds, and perhaps even an engraved band!

 

Perfectionist

 

If your life could fit into a perfectly organized and labelled folder, with everything timed perfectly and on schedule, with this guy, it would be. Your life together is planned and proper, with all aspects following an order which would make any librarian envious. In other words, you could certainly call your mate a perfectionist. His high attention to detail is duly noted, and when it comes to a decision like his future wife’s engagement ring, this is a choice that absolutely must be perfect. To match such ideals, your guys will likely do as many modern couples decide to do, and purchase the ring together! No flaws are acceptable, only perfection!
While this is strictly only a guide to predicting his choice of engagement ring, you can always remember that no matter what, as long as he is the perfect one for you, the ring will follow suit.

Personalize School Uniforms in 123

Personalize School Uniforms in 123

I’ve never experienced the ease of having any of my kids wear uniforms to school. We’ve always shopped for outfits they liked and added pieces throughout the year. This year, my son Robert has both options, you can wear a uniform or a more personalized form of uniform, which means on one day he can wear his uniform, khakis and a polo, and the next day, wear his polo with his favorite jeans from Target. His school is pretty flexible as long as we follow the guidelines and I have got to be honest, I’ve never been so excited! With all the new stylish back-to-school-apparel and uniforms that can easily be mixed and matched at Target I knew this would be not only fun to shop for but easy AND affordable!

Initially, Robert was hesitant on having to wear a uniform but because of the flexibility the school is offering, he’s able to still express his individual style. We picked a classic navy blue polo, dark wash skinny jeans (which he’s obsessed with), a few button-ups for layering and we even included some of last year’s tees to compliment his outfits. The idea was to have him look ready for school with a stylish, personal touch!

For his first look we kept it simple with his blue polo layered over a striped tee, rolled up skinny jeans (his idea) and slip on sneakers. Doesn’t he look cute?!

In the second fall inspired look, we took a few more back-to-school key pieces from Target and layered his look with a button-up and tee.

With Target’s stylish back-to-school-apparel and newly redesigned “comfy jeans”, Robert can relax knowing that he can still let his stylish side shine even with a uniform. Looks like I now have a shopping buddy for my weekly Target runs!

The ABC’s of Looking Cool for Back-To-School

The ABC's of Looking Cool for Back-To-School

This summer has flown right by us this year. In less than four weeks all of my boys will be headed back to school and it’s never too early to get ready when you have five kids. We’ve already begun getting organized and have a plan to get things done but there are still a few things we need to wrap up and for that we plan on heading to our local Target. I’m already there on a weekly basis running around with a cup of coffee in hand but when back to school season kicks in, all of my boys want to join in on my Target run and I love it!

Robert is going into 5th grade and right now it’s all about having his say in what he wears, what supplies he uses and how cool everything looks. For this I count on Target who makes back-to-school shopping easy and fun for me and my boys. Check out some of our favorite back-to-school items to ensure a cool new start to school.

Licensed characters are a back-to-school must-have for any kid! Robert is a diehard Avengers fan so this year we’ll be snagging all of his favorite items like the Avengers backpack and lunchbox (of course Target also has a huge variety of Star Wars, Frozen and Minions gear to choose from).

Abcs of looking cool for back to school

I try to teach my kids how to style themselves as soon as they know how to dress themselves, but to make their back-to-school selection easier I buy them lots of pieces they can mix and match. Lots of solid color tees that match with anything, button ups for layering and to help transition out of summer shorts I plan on buying Target’s new reinvented stretchy jeans that are now more comfy with a worn in feel. This helps them develop their own sense of style without having to get involved too much.

The ABC's of Looking Cool for Back-To-School

Back-to-school lists are pretty standard: They request a dozen or more notebooks, pens, paper, crayons etc. To make the supplies have a more personal feel, we choose supplies with flair! Look for patterns and colors that pop like a striped notebook and supplies with bright colors.

The ABC's of Looking Cool for Back-To-School

Another thing we do each year is buy a brand new pack of permanent markers and I let the kids go nuts and personalize their stuff with initials and doodles they draw. The idea is to bring a sense of creativity to their back-to-school basics and make it more exciting.

The ABC's of Looking Cool for Back-To-School

 

This year Target has made it a little easier to do just that with the school list assist – an online destination built specifically to help you find the exact supplies you need and you can then either pick it up at the store (my favorite method) or have it shipped right to your door. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

What are some of your kids’ must-haves for back-to-school?

How many of you head out shopping and suddenly realize that you had a coupon or heard of a good deal and didn’t have quick, easy access to it? If you’re anything like me, tons of times!

There have been so many times where I find myself in the middle of a store searching sites or emails for a good deal only to end up empty handed or spending more that I wanted to. This was the exact inspiration behind Shopami. Shopami is an app that tells you about offers in your email at the exact moment you need them…when you’re shopping! Shopami helps you save money by reminding you of any offers you already have sitting in your email, so you never miss out on savings. It’s a fashionista’s dream come true!

How it Works:
When you first open the app, it prompts you to choose your email (Google, Yahoo, etc.), which brings you to a screen where you log into your email. Once you connect your email, you’ll start to see the offers from your email in the app! Shopami finds the offers and deals from the stores that email you and then tells you which ones are available when you’re in the store and which offers are expiring that day. You can also turn off notifications and just check the app before you shop.

Shop Smarter With Shopami
It’s like having a personal shopping buddy right in your phone!In today’s busy world it’s apps like these that put the fun back into shopping.
