Inside Target HQ

February 18, 2013

a few weeks ago i had the pleasure of visiting the target headquarters in minneapolis with a few of my fellow target inner circle members. *pinch me* it was two days of fun filled activities including meeting the design and product development team, going inside the target test kitchen to makeup by sonia kashuk and a photo shoot styled by sam spector! i've always been really curious about target hq and being behind the scene so i thought i'd share pictures from my time there.

heres a snapshot of some of the inner circle members – yes, everything we are wearing is target!
TOP ROW - gina homolka (skinny taste) . jo-lynne shane (musings of a housewife) . jennifer pebbles (studio pebbles) . jennie lyon (sweet greens) . jenni radosevich (i spy diy) . allyson seligman (average girls guide) . patrice yursik (afrobella) . samantha hutchinson (could i have that?)BOTTOM ROW - amy mascott (teach mama) . anne sage (city sage) . me :)

the {heart japan} benefit

March 28, 2011

Heart-Japani know i've talk a lot about japan the last few days, but i think it's important for us to remember how fortunate and lucky we are. i've teamed up with a group of creatives to put together the {HEART JAPAN} benefit. the first event is in atlanta on saturday april 2 from 5-7pm. there will be a silent auction with lots of great items, t-shirts, calendars for sale and live music by the fu. 100% of the donations raised will go to direct relief international. if your in the atlanta area – i hope you will come out! if your not and would like to donate you can do so here.

in salt lake at the alt design summit, lucky enough to be staying at the beautiful grand america hotel. it's very victorian old style but i simply love it the people here have been very welcoming. and check out this key!

it looks almost and feels almost like a real key but it works like a hotel key card where you slide it in and out. it's the little things...
