Another Reason to Love Target: Convenient CVS Pharmacy

Find your favorite CVS Pharmacy now at your local Target
Disclosure: I'm proud to be working with CVS Pharmacy on the CVS Pharmacy Difference Campaign. All opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified at CVS.com or with the appropriate manufacturers.
I don't know about you, but I have a real love affair with Target. We do a family shopping trip, probably once a week.  It's our go-to store for all our basic family needs. Need a new lunch bag? Check Target. Out of index cards? Add them to the Target list. Well, recently, along with the addition of the large red concrete balls out front, we noticed another new thing at our local Target: the pharmacy changed to CVS. As if any of us needed another reason to love Target.

What does this mean for current Target shoppers and current CVS Pharmacy customers? Well, if you are already enrolled in CVS's ExtaCare loyalty program and the opt-in ExtraCare Pharmacy and Health Rewards you'll earn $5 in ExtraBucks Rewards for every 10 prescriptions filled. Patients can also earn rewards for the other things they do to stay healthy, like getting immunizations or choosing email refill reminders.

Summer Style: 2 Looks to Love Before Fall

End of Summer Style Ideas and Inspiration

Well hey there - how are you? It's been a few weeks since I've done a fashion post here. Let me apologize for that. It's not that I loved clothes, style and looking my best any less this summer, but two things happened: 1.) This summer was HOT, which meant I spent a lot of time in shorts and a t-shirt, and 2.) I had a temporary summer job, that required a uniform, which also meant everyday was spent in shorts and a polo shirt.

Neither of those scenarios make for interesting, real life style discussion, and that's what these fashion posts are about - real style for real women. I want to talk about what is in your closet, and what you are wearing right now. For me, this transition from summer to fall is the toughest season. I want to wear sweaters and booties, but it's 95 degrees outside.

Everything You Need to Know About Backpacks

What to know before you go backpack shopping: ideas and inspiration for finding the perfect backpack

Perhaps nothing signals the return of kids to school like the backpack. I don't ever recall carrying a backpack, loaded with books, to and from my own school as a kid. But since the day my oldest was born, I've been scouting the perfect back-to-school backpack.

Where did this obsession with backpacks come from? I can't recall anyone carrying a backpack when I was in school (ok - it was the 70's and 80's). According to this fantastic article by Lee Hale from NPR, the backpack craze as we know it launched itself firmly in 1982, when LL Bean featured their Book Pack. It quickly became the company's top-selling product, and is still one of the top sellers in backpacks today. By the late 1980's every kid was carrying a backpack.
