Success can be defined differently for everyone but the fact is some people achieve it and some people don’t.

Our love for the super-store Target cannot be summed up in a few paragraphs (although, this gif does a pretty good job encompassing all of our feelings). We've spent many weekends aimlessly walking up and down the aisles, debating whether we really need those throw pillows, that newly on-sale candle, or that skirt from the latest designer collaboration.

Let's talk real talk: you may be a strong, independent person who doesn't need any man/woman to complete you, but your addiction to coffee will probably last until the grave. You do actually need coffee to complete you, sorry not sorry.
