On My Mind: Bold Type, Craft Sales, Caramels, Disney, and the #Maxx50Challenge

Entertainment, tasty eats, and an exciting brand collaboration… It has been a rad week! See what’s new.

BOLD TYPE // New must-watch show

Do you have a soft spot for guilty pleasure shows? Did you enjoy The Devil Wears Prada, Gossip Girl, and/or Mean Girls? Then your new favorite television show is The Bold Type on Freeform (replayed on Hulu.)

Thus far, every character is totally likable and I’m more than mildly addicted.

CRAFT SALES // Stock up on supplies!

Joann’s and Michael’s seem to be undergoing some major stock changes which means the sale areas are bananas. Pay extra attention if you are interested in jewelry design, scrapbooking, kid’s crafts, and/or sewing, as those are the areas I saw with the most sale options. Some is available online, but I recommend coupon-ing up (some work on sale!) and heading to the store to dig in person.

CARAMELS // Addicted to Whole Foods Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels

Do you shop at Whole Foods? I’m not really a fan, but there are a few items I love enough to justify the drive out. Most of them are desserts. If you like sweets, try the Whole Foods Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels. Bonus points if they are ever so slightly warm.

DISNEY // Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2

I met one of the Disney PR pros at #BlogHer17 which means my inbox now has the happiest emails of all: Disney press releases! I was thrilled to find out the Walt Disney team recently announced a sequel Lance and I have both always wanted… And it is being promoted with the funniest fashion video!

Oh, and isn’t the concept artwork (image courtesy of Disney•Pixar)… incredible? Get it? Get it? Because they are the Incredibles? Har har har.

Incredibles 2 will be in theaters everywhere on June 15th, 2018!

#MAXX50CHALLENGE // My T.J.Maxx Instagram Stories Takeover

And here’s the big news of the day: I took over the @TJMaxx Instagram Stories! I was invited as a #TJMaxxPartner to try the #Maxx50Challenge (okay, done speaking in hashtags). This Instragram series asks influencers to shop for a special occasion with a $50 gift card to see if she can find everything she needs. What was my occasion? The Oh, Julia Ann fifth birthday photo shoot! Head to the @TJMaxx Instagram page and click on its user icon to watch my entire series of shopping posts before they disappear.

Oh, and that reminds me… Tomorrow kicks off the blog’s birthday month, and I’m ringing it in with some AMAZING giveaways. Big prizes. Multiple winners. Probably more than one blog post where I get weirdly emotional that you’ve come on this weird blog journey with me for the last five years. Stay tuned!
