What I’m loving about March is you. Yes, you! I recently went through a messy friend breakup where some people were treating me pretty poorly, but then acted like I was in the wrong for pointing it out. It made me think about all the times in my life when I accepted being mistreated because I didn’t want to make someone “mad”– in relationships, in friendships, at work.
The other day, I was telling my coworker about how much I love the Target Beauty Box, and she had never heard of it! I realized that I don’t talk about some of the products that I’m obsessed with, and should really start sharing the products that I can’t live without (because we all know I shop enough to try it all!).

Need sunscreen? It’s in the sunscreen bin! Need a towel? They’re neatly stacked and the pile won’t collapse on you!
Here are my top tips for taking time to simply your life:
