Exciting News!! + $250 Target Gift Card Giveaway




Hello everyone! Happy Monday and welcome back! Today, I have some REALLY exciting news to share. I am so happy to tell you that I have been selected to be a member of Target‘s new influencer program – Target Inner Circle!! What does this mean? This means that I will be able to bring you the insider scoop and exclusive coverage on what’s happening with Target. I am absolutely over the moon about this!!! To give you a glimpse on what’s involved, some of the exciting line-ups include coverage on the Opening Launch Party for Target San Francisco on Oct.9 (so psyched!), the 50th Anniversary Party in NYC on Oct. 16 (yes, I will be there!!), an exclusive interview with an upcoming designer on a new line (you and I will be star struck!), and a Target-Pinterest Baby Shower Party where you and I are in it to get some new baby stuff! (Freebies for our mini ones is always a plus!) 

I’ve got lots of fun things in the works and am truly excited to be collaborating with Target on this program. They are a brand I looked up to for many years – dated back to my college years, if you would say. They really have shaped my shopping experience in the past ten years, and who isn’t smitten by their smart advertising, catchy commercial tunes, and all of the top designer collaborations anyway?! Coming from a marketing background, words cannot even express what this means to me to be partnering with a giant brand like this. And the best part is, I am able to bring you to enjoy the ride along with me – starting today!



To kick things off, Target is offering my lovely readers a chance to win a $250 Gift Card to Target. This is to also celebrate the opening of their first SF location in Downtown Metreon on October 9! To get in the spirit, I thought it’d be really fun to host a “Something Red” Instagram Party for you guys, and along the way, win a nice gift card for yourself! Everyone who lives in the U.S. is qualified to participate – not just S.F. residents. To have some fun and win some dough, here are the 2 super easy steps:

1. From now until Monday, Oct. 8 – snap a photo with something red (my examples above) and upload it onto Instagram.

2. In your caption, include #SFWelcomesTarget and you will be automatically entered for an entry. 

Easy enough? The more Instagram you upload the more entries you will get. And while this is not required, we would also love for you to spread the love and share this on your Facebook and Twitter as well! Be sure to include our Twitter handles: @Target@ABullseyeView@ShopSweetThings. And that is all!

This is not a competition to see who takes the best Instagram photo, rather it’s just a fun and simple way to spread the love and welcome Target to San Francisco! Hope to see you in the Instagram party. Happy October, everyone!

*The giveaway is open to all U.S. Residents. The Instagram Party will start on Oc.t. 1 and end on Oct. 8, 11:59p.m. PST. The winner will be chosen at random and be announced on Shop Sweet Things on Wednesday, Oct. 10. I am a member of the Target Inner Circle, all opinions shared here are my own.
