to shop / {deal alert} target beauty 25% off today


The Target beauty department is a whopping 25% off today online and in-store. This includes makeup, skincare, haircare, fragrances, bath and body, deodorant, hand soap, oral care, women’s shave, men’s grooming, and spa & massage. Many items are already discounted (Amazon isn’t always cheapest). Like last year, I’m stocking up on Cerave foaming face wash and the Pixi Glow Tonic. They also have high-end skincare like French Embryolisse and Korean Laneige. Shipping is free!

(1) Marimekko for Target is launching on Sunday, April 17, which means midnight tonight-ish. Aside from studying their lookbook, check eBay auctions (there was a press preview last weekend) and also understand Marimekko retail prices (no need to overpay for a Target collab piece!). I anticipate a crazy launch.

(1) I love bringing Suja Mighty Greens juice to work in a S’well bottle, since it stays chilled. The extra large bottle from Costco is reasonably cheap and it lasts us for a few days. We grab a few bottles every time we go to Costco. You can find the S’well bottles here and here. I have a 9 oz for juice and a 17 oz gold one for water, which always gets comments.

to shop / {deal alert} target beauty up to 32% off today


The Target beauty department is a whopping 25% off today. Many items are already discounted and have another 10% off code. I’m super excited and stocked up on more Cerave foaming face wash and the highly recommended Pixi Glow Tonic. The tonic was in-store only so I placed an order for pickup. In general, online prices are more competitive and placing an order for in-store pickup is the best of both worlds. One item was only available online and already has a delayed shipping warning!

25% off code: BEAUTY. 10% off code:  SHINE.

to decorate / mad for plaid (and $10 off $20 at target)


I didn’t get anything from Target x Adam Lippes or from the other brands, but I did add this plaid stag head to my cart and checked back on it periodically. It has since sold out online, but in stock at most stores.

If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, New Jersey/New York, or LA/Glendale areas, you can get $10 off your first $20+ order through the Curbside app with code MGPEN. They don’t have everything Target.com has for pickup, but they have most items. Target is a black hole for me, so every bit helps!
