Who Likes the New Website?

I will admit that I am not a big fan of the new Target website.  Call me old fashioned but I was just finally getting adapted to the new Nordstroms website and now Target had to do a major overhaul?  I have warmed up to the Nordstroms website but I definitely am NOT a fan of the new Target website for the following reasons:

  • Is it me or does it crash every other day?  Given all or the unhappy facebook comments, it seems that this is a common happening especially for the "new and improved" website.
  • Another complaint of mine is that the website times out when you have been inactive for several minutes.  Like c' I had to change a diaper while I was in the middle of ordering, or the doorbell rang, etc...did you want the sale Target?  Obviously not.
  • Finally, my biggest pet peeve of you are sold out of an item then why show it on the website?  Even if you are out of one size, then don't show that size...why go through all that trouble for me to pick through all the options and then tell me it is "out of stock".
So I have completely strayed from my original intent of this post which was to eliminate the information collects about you.  We all know nowadays that every website we visit collects information about us to create those "targeted advertisements" that is pretty successful in capturing our attention (at least that is case for me).

Apparently there is a way to opt out of this, and does it actually work?  I have no idea.  But did provide a link where you can opt out of behavioral advertising (so as it is called) and according to Target's website...I did successfully disabled their website from collecting information about me.

For Those That Love Free Samples

Who doesn't like free things?  I will admit that I like requesting free samples and I get giddy like a little girl on Christmas morning when my sample arrives in the mail (pathetic, isn't it?).  Currently, Walmart has free samples of Poise Pads and Playtex Tampons while Costco is giving out samples of their own Kirkland Signature boy lotion as well as a Dove Ultimate Go Fresh deodorant.  We all know that samples are only available as supplies last so you better hurry before I take them all!  Ha...just kidding.

I'm Just a Girl

I am just a typical girl (and now mom) that is obsessed with fashion.  But now that I do have kids in tow, "fashion(able)" is another f-word that has been eliminated from my vocabulary and life.  With that said, I cannot help but peruse the internet looking for new things to add to my wardrobe...a girl can dream right?

Exhibit A: Salma Hayek
She's a mom and I think this look would be great for Hawaii which is why I absolutely LOVE her outfit!  Most importantly I love her handbag and we all know how much I love Gucci.  I think that bag will get along really well with the other handbags in my closet.

Exhibit B: Miranda Kerr
Another mom and another handbag I have fallen in love with, it even pairs well with a baby in tow!  I have yet to add Prada (or a red bag for that manner) to my collection, so why not kill two birds with one stone?  Now if only I can look as great as Miranda...hmph.

Exhibit C: Pippa Middleton
Who doesn't love Pippa?  I love all three of her outfits pictured above...and the emerald green gown she wore to the royal wedding after party...and the red gown she recently wore to a charity event.  You get the point.  I want her whole wardrobe including accessories, and why not throw in her stylist as well...does she have a stylist?

Well that is all I have for now considering that the little princess is calling for help.  We all know I lack a good portion of motherly instincts most women and girls are blessed with, and I say that only because little princess has somehow come down with her second cold.  Yes, that makes two colds and she is only one month old.  To add to that, I came down with the cold this time around too.  Oh the joys of being a mother!
