Target Debuts New Line of Swimsuits w/o Airbrushing...

People Magazine reports that Target is continuing their promise to keep swimsuit ads free of reshaping or airbrushing with their new 2018 campaign.

The retailer debuted their new line of suits — with over 1,700 different styles — and stayed away from overly editing their models. Target says in a press release that it’s all part of their goal to celebrate womens’ bodies.

“To show off the new styles you’ll see bright, vibrant images throughout our marketing campaign — all meant to inspire guests to have fun while rocking their favorite swimsuit,” they announced. “Something you won’t see? Reshaping or airbrushing. Building on the strong foundation we set with last year’s campaign, we’re celebrating women and encouraging them to embrace the beauty of their own bodies.”

Target first went airbrushing-free with their 2017 swimsuit ads, which featured model and body activist Denise Bidot, dancer Megan Batoon, pro skateboarder Lizzie Armanto and TV host and model Kamie Crawford. This came after the brand was mocked for a photoshop flub in 2014 on a swimsuit model. The badly-done editing left the model with an extra-long arm, and a missing hip and crotch.

Sale Alert: La Roche-Posay

If you're already a fan of - or been wanting to try - luxury skincare line La Roche-Posay, head on over to Target this week. They've got almost the entire line on sale, from moisturizers and cleansers to serums and suncreens, at buy 1/get 1 25% off. What I like about La Roche-Posay is that most of their products are phthalate and paraben free - with no added fragrance - making them ideal for sensitive skin. I'm going to take advantage of the sale to try their Effaclar BB Blur Fair/Light, Oil-Absorbing Face Cream Mousse with Sunscreen (shown here) which is very highly rated on

Back at Target: The Wedge Zip Espadrille

If you've been a fan of the Merona "Meredith" wedge espradrille, I've got good news! Despite retiring the Merona brand, Target is bringing this style back under the Mossimo Supply Co. brand as the "Emilee" sandal.  This popular shoe is actually a dupe of a past Michael Kors style from 2014, which Target kept bringing back each year and renamed the "Ruth" in 2017. My one gripe is that the Mossimo version only comes in one color - a neutral light tan fabric - but hopefully they'll add more colors later on this Spring.
