Sorry for the awful pic, but had to share these scrapbooking supplies I picked up from the See.Spot.Save (aka The Dollar Spot) section
LOVE the colors and patterns so much! I can't promise these are acid free or archival or anything, but I'll tell you - finding a tube full of felt acorns, pumpkins, and apples for a buck sure makes me happy right now!

Earlier this year, UK pharmaceutical company Boots (which is sort of like Walgreens here) began offering its No. 7 line, including Protect & Perfect Antiaging Serum in its UK stores. The BBC featured this product on a Horizon documentary and the product started flying off the shelves when the documentary showed that this product actually works! Now this product is now available in the US at Target stores, and it's known as Restore & Renew. This product was featured on the Today show and even The Rachael Ray Show- and it's starting to get popular throughout the US.
At a retail cost of $21.99 at Target, this serum is a great deal in comparison to department store brands of anti-aging serums, especially since it's been proven to work by scientists.
So far, I'm a big fan of the Boots No. 7 line at Target. They have rich, beautiful makeup colors and so far I've been using the Soft & Soothed Toner ($7.99) along with the Soft & Soothed Face Wash ($7.99) and I couldn't be happier. I haven't been able to get my hands on some of the R&R serum, but I plan to... I figure it's never too early to get a head start on preventing any more fine lines & wrinkles... and I'm really looking forward to trying one of their night creams and eye creams.
Oh, and these products are available online, so happy shopping!
Have you tried the Boots No. 7 products at Target? What are your thoughts?

Target diapers actually work!
I would post a photo of a diaper from Target or a box of diapers from Target but they don't sell them online (much to my annoyance) and I am too lazy (tired actually as a mother of a newborn) to get up and take a photo with my camera and then upload to blog.
Anyway with my first child I had this theory that since we went through so many diapers a day and since I work from home and could change her at her every whim that I would use store brand (what other store is there than Target?) diapers for all of her day wear and then high end brand at night when she goes for longer stretches. This ideas was genius until I tried Target diapers 3 years ago and found them to be utter crap. They held nothing, felt like crap and were craptastic.
Fast forward 3 years and I have a newborn. I remembered my theory and rushed that little red cart over to the diaper aisle. I purchased with hesitation and low and behold the diapers blow my mind. LOVE them. I think a mom must have been promoted to head store brand diaper engineer because they rock. They hold the pee pee and they feel just like huggies! My new baby pees like crazy and goes through about 12 diapers a day ( is this normal?) and they work like a charm. IF only I could get them online so I didn't have to leave the house so often!
The Target brand formulas aren't bad either. They pretty much match Enfamil but why is the powder more greasy to the touch? Someone please tell me.
