As Paula Deen was dropped by seemingly every company she’s ever been associated with, Novo Nordisk continued to say it would stand by her—but even that relationship appears to have frayed. The diabetes drug maker that partnered with Deen as she announced she had the disease today announced it is suspending the relationship “for now.” A rep tells Eater there is the “option” to resume the partnership in the future, “but it’s too early to say” whether that would happen. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Target also says it’s severing its relationship with Deen. It’ll “phase out” her cooking merchandise and won’t be ordering more, a rep tells TMZ. Read more on Newser…
Set your alarms for Sunday at midnight! The Prabal Gurung collection goes on sale then and it’s a doozy! Seriously, I was pretty much over these designer collaborations because they’d had, for the most part, gotten really cheap and crappy looking, like the designers were phoning it in since they knew the items would sell like hotcakes regardless. But the massive Prabal Gurung collection for Target has won me over — I’m loving nearly everything, from the bright florals to the short hemlines to the chic and unique accessories. Best of all, everything is majorly affordable. Click through to see the entire lookbook, with prices, so you can plan your shopping spree accordingly…
Black Friday is a uniquely American consumerist faux “holiday” that I will never understand. Do millions of people really want to endure screaming toddlers and hordes of teenagers at the mall just so they can buy an Old Navy fleece for 20 percent off? No, thanks.
But for the retail workers who have to mediate the screaming toddler hellscape, they have little or no choice. Now, some retail employees, such as those at Walmart and Target who are seeing “Black Friday” begin earlier and earlier each year, they are saying enough is enough. Keep reading »
Target and Neiman Marcus are at absolute opposite ends of the retail spectrum, which is all the more reason for them to want to come together, right? Whatever the logic behind their decision to collaborate, we have no complaints, even less so now that we’ve gotten to see each of the 55 items from the holiday collection. With prices starting at $7.99, you’d be hard-pressed not to find something that you or someone you know needs this coming season (especially considering, hello, holiday shopping is about to become a legitimate concern). The collection doesn’t hit stores (at Target, Neiman Marcus, and both online sources) until December 1, but the items are sure to sell out fast, so it’s best to go into it knowing exactly what you want. Check out my 12 designer picks from the offerings, and let us know what you’ll be waiting in (or on) line for come December! [Glamour]
I bought a pair of these panties in black lace for the same reason anyone buys anything at Target: I was there to buy a box of Luna Bars and saw them hanging on a rack under a big $5 sign. I knew they were cute and cheap, but I didn’t know they would quickly become my new favorite underwear: they’re sexy, comfy, and with just the right amount of stretch, they’re totally flattering. And yeah, did I mention they’re $5 a pop? I’m about to grab a few more colors, and I encourage you to join me! [$5, Target]
I’ve always thought primer was a slightly dodgy beauty product. Do I really need to put more gunk on my face, on top of my moisturizer and serum but under my makeup? Apparently so.
I’ll admit primer does keep foundation and concealer on my face longer, which is ideal for days that my skin is speckled with pre-period pimples. I usually wore a primer from Smashbox, but only on rare those premenstrual occasions. However, when Target sent me their JK Jemma Kidd Instant Life Skin Perfecting primer to try, I gave it a shot.
