To celebrate the beginning of 2013 and to give you a little something to look forward to as you’re staring at your daunting list of New Years Resolutions – I’d like to send one lucky reader a $50 gift card to Target.

I recently made a trip to this retail giant – Which recently opened its first San Francisco location – And was thrilled to pick up the gold Marc Jacobs pouch from the Neiman Marcus for Target collaboration.

On sale! 🙂

After my little happy dance subsided I decided that I needed to spread the love and give someone else the chance to rock their Target happy dance as well.

Entering this little contest will be very quick and very easy – I promise – There are TWO different ways to enter so pick either of the simple options below and you could have some fun at Target in just a few days!

  1. Leave a comment below telling me what you’d do with a $50 gift card for Target
  2. Leave a comment on Facebook telling me what you’d do with a $50 gift card for Target

Anything at all, and I will randomly pick a winner next Friday, January 18th!

* Please note that the gift card was purchased by me and this giveaway wasn’t sponsored by Target

Fashion:

I love the idea of this No Shopping Challenge {Inspiration: My No Shopping Challenge} from Style Within Reach – It’s a great idea to not only purge your closets at the beginning of the year, but take stock in what pieces you have and try to mix up your current wardrobe rather than blindly adding to it. But in practice I’m not sure that I have her self-control… What about you?
