My First Hand Experience at Target with Magnolia Hearth & Hand


Chip and Joanna Gaines are at it again. Yesterday Target Stores officially opened their new Hearth & Hand Magnolia “store within a store”. I won’t mention who, but someone I know has been peeking inside the plastic surrounding the “store” they have been building at our local target store. I have been really excited to see the final “store within the store” so today I was at Target shortly after it opened.

Five Instagram shortcuts you might not know about

Every once in a while I feel like a complete idiot on Instagram. Usually, it happens when I am in a DM chat. You know that feeling, when somebody says, “just archive it”, and you have no idea what they are talking about?

Just to save you major embarrassment, I thought I would share the five best shortcuts I have learned about Instagram.

Hurricane Harvey // What You Can Do


It’s not new news that Hurricane Harvey is continuing in its force and destruction. To be honest, being in Taipei, there wasn’t a lot of news or talk about the devastation, so when I got home the other night, I was in shock. While it’s easy to feel hopeless when you’re not there to physically help, there’s still a lot you can do. And while a small donation might not feel like much, it definitely has an impact. The only good that comes from these crazy events is they bring us together. So let’s all join together and do everything we can to help the people of Texas and Louisiana. 

Here are five ways you can help 

// Texas Forever Shirt from Magnolia Market 

  • (100% of profits go towards disaster relief efforts)

// Texas Diaper Bank 

  • In times of trouble, we often forget babies and senior citizens need diapers to survive. Often times other relief organizations forgo diapers as they take up a ton of space on the trucks… but they are needed!

// Houston Food Bank

  • It’s no surprise that food donations will be needed after Harvey. With the Houston Food Bank, you can support via donation or time.

// SPCA of Texas 

  • If you’re an animal lover, you’ve probably seen the photos of the animals during this time. Many are left behind and eventually taken to shelters. SPCA transports these animals to safe places. You can donate or if you are local to the Houston area, foster a displaced animal until it is reunited with its owner.

// Air BnB

  • If you have a spare room, you can host someone by listing your home on Airbnb for free, with no service fees to anyone.
